Queen Buzzerfly

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance
Queen (as it turns out!) of the Buzzerflies. They fight as a swarm: she pummels with stingers and pollen while her drones take a more direct approach.

The Queen Buzzerfly is a Dream Eater that appears in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It serves as a boss during Riku's Dive to La Cité des Cloches and Sora's Dive to The World That Never Was.


The Queen Buzzerfly was originally created as a much smaller common Dream Eater before being reintroduced as a Dive Mode boss. During battle, the Queen Buzzerfly would have sat in the eye of a needle and spun like a top.[1]


The Queen Buzzerfly has a similar shape to that of a butterfly and a bee. It has a very narrow head with two large red eyes, its face is almost framed in orange lines, and it wears a crown in the shape of an orange tulip on the top of its head. Behind its head it has two long protrusions that curl at the ends, these are colored white, yellow, orange and green. The Queen Buzzerfly has a white puffy neckline and appears to wear a large dress which is black in the middle, purple and pink with white lining at the bottom and an underlying layer of green and orange petals on black. It also has two arms which are blue and purple, its hands are black with red and yellow shapes, the hands end in a spike. At the bottom of its body it has a sharp protrusion colored purple. The Queen Buzzerfly also has two large sky blue wings that have swirls on them in a lighter shade. The Nightmare Dream Eater emblem is located on the middle part of the dress that the Dream Eater is wearing.

Hachi (?) is the Japanese word for bee.


Side: Riku[edit]

Queen Buzzerfly attacks Riku at Le Cite Des Cloches alongside four smaller Buzzerflies. The queen and the buzzerflies begin by using Needle Scatter and Drilling Attack. Once the buzzerflies have charged they will stop moving and expose their weak points. Slow down so the buzzerflies are in range and attack them all. While the buzzerflies are weak, the queen will use Flapping Bullets.

When all of the buzzerflies have been defeated, Queen Buzzerfly will fly closer to Riku, allowing its weak point to be attacked. It will use its Needle Scatter attack throughout its weak phase, and it will dodge any attack Riku uses against its weak point while it does so. It is best to attack it at this point anyway, as it will allow more damage to be dealt when it is vulnerable, and the stingers can be avoided this way as well. Eventually the queen will summon four more buzzerflies and repeat its attack pattern. The buzzerflies gain a new attack at this point, Cooperative Laser. Once again, the buzzerflies will become weak after attacking and allowing Riku to take them out again, and letting Queen Buzzerfly become vulnerable. This should be the last phase of the battle, assuming the queen has been attacked relentlessly.

Getting Gold Diver rank generally requires defeating all the buzzerflies at once, and repeatedly dashing after defeating the queen will shave some seconds off the overall time.

Side: Sora[edit]

Sora fights Queen Buzzerfly in his last Dive in The World That Never Was, making the battle more challenging than Riku's version. However, very little has changed. The battle starts exactly as Riku's version, the only differences being the Buzzerfly and the Queen using their attacks simultaneously, the front weak point having less HP, and Queen Buzzerfly's Needle Scatter firing more stingers. Take out the Buzzerflies when their weak spots are on sight and deplete the Queen's health to move onto phase two.

The Queen will turn around and expose three more weak points, while moving left and right. These should be attacked quickly and it is possible to destroy two of them in one cycle, but it is difficult or luck-based for Sora to land combos or even land a single hit due to the lock-on system of the Dive Mode. Repeat the strategy and finish the Queen off.

Notes and references[edit]

  1. ^ Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance Ultimania, Mamoru Ohashi: "Of course, halfway through development, many Dream Eaters were cut, to my extreme sadness. Among them was Queen Buzzerfly, which began designed as a normal small-fry enemy and cut, but made a miraculous recovery as a Dive Mode boss, which is rare to have happen. By the way, when it was small-fry it attacked by sitting in the eye of a needle and spinning like a top." Translation via Goldpanner
