The Shimmer is a set of Lances that can be wielded by Xaldin in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to the Shimmer+.

Design[edit]

A Shimmer lance's shaft is silver in the center and indigo on the ends, with the two colors separated by small, khaki-colored rings. The lower blade is a dark cross-shape similar to the top half of the Nobody symbol. It also sports a purple, curved blade on the lower half of the cross, with short, lilac spikes lining it. The upper blade is dark at its base and khaki-colored at the top, and forks into a "Y" shape. Two large, violet, semi-circular side blades connect to the two points of the main blade, and each one is lined by four lilac spikes of varying length; they somewhat resemble the berserk form of the Lunatic.

The Japanese name of the weapon, Shiden, literally means "violet lightning", but idiomatically refers to light reflecting off a blade.

Gameplay[edit]

Shimmer's normal ground combo starts with a sideways slash using one lance, followed by a downward diagonal slash using the other lance, and ends with a thrust of all six lances forwards at once. The Y combo can be activated after the second attack, and consists of Xaldin swinging his lances from the same starting point upward to two far points in a "V" formation, followed by a leap and a downward diagonal slash with one lance. The combo then ends with a thrust of all six lances forwards at once in a pointed, star-like shape.

The aerial combo consists of two downward diagonal slashes using one lance, followed by a thrust of all six lances forwards at once in a pointed, star-like shape.
