Sonic Blade, translated as Sonic Rave in Kingdom Hearts II, is a technique introduced in Kingdom Hearts. It allows the user to execute a number of successive thrusting attacks.

Mechanics[edit]

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts, Sonic Blade is a Special Ability that Sora can use while on the ground against a target at mid range. It lets Sora charge with the Keyblade up to seven times. Sora is invulnerable during the technique, save for in the Final Mix version where he is only invincible during the first thrust. Selecting the Sonic (ソニック Sonikku?) command from the last command bar executes the initial attack, an additional five attacks can be added by selecting the Rave (レイヴ Reivu?) command each time it becomes available, and the final, more powerful finishing strike is executed by selecting the Blast (フィニッシュ Finisshu?, lit. "Finish") command when it appears. In the Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX release of Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, the initial Sonic command, the Rave followups, and the Blast finisher are all implemented as Reaction Commands, and it takes longer to perform as the prompt no longer appears the very same frame the hit lands. Sonic Blade costs 3 AP to equip and 2 MP to use.

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Sonic Blade is an attack sleight that allows Sora to dash back and forth across the field, and can be steered slightly up or down as it is executed. The dashes are slower than in other games, allowing the player time to add up to six additional thrusts by pressing A at the end of each dash. In Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, the dashes automatically target an enemy and cover a greater distance, although they can miss if the target is airborne. Additional attacks are activated by pressing Triangle when prompted, but the timing for the press is stricter, and pressing Triangle at the wrong time cancels the sleight.

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts II, Sonic Rave is a limit that is exclusive to Genie. The limit begins with Sonic, in which Genie transforms into a giant hand that Sora uses to smack enemies several times. Afterwards, Rave transforms Genie into a rocket that propels itself into enemies as Sora rides on top of it.

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Sonic Rave is also an action ability exclusive to Limit Form. It is a limit that is equipped by default and costs 60 MP to use. It is automatically assigned to Circle in the shortcuts menu. On activation, Sora performs the opening lunge attack, and up to five more attacks can be executed through the Rave Reaction Command. Afterwards, the Reaction Command is replaced with Finish to perform the final attack. If used in midair, he will return to the ground before unleashing the thrusts.[?]

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Sonic Blade is an Ultimate attack command that takes up one slot in the Command Deck, has a maximum level of 5, has a normal reload time of 15 seconds, and fills the Command Gauge by 20%. If used in midair, they will return to the ground before unleashing the thrusts.[?]

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Sonic Blade is an attack command exclusive to Sora that uses two slots and has a reload time of 36 seconds. It lets the user relentlessly charge at the enemy ten times. It grants +3 to Strength and +1 to Defense when attached to a Dream Eater recipe. This version of Sonic Blade does not require additional button presses and can be initiated in midair, but also lacks the invulnerability of previous versions.

Kingdom Hearts Union χ[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts Union χ, Sonic Blade is a special attack that targets a single enemy. It costs 3 special attack gauges to perform. It inflicts more damage to sleeping targets.

Kingdom Hearts III[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts III, Sonic Blade is the second-level Finish Command of Second Form. After the initial thrust, Sora can use the Rave command to perform up to five dashing strikes, before finishing with the Blast command. Like its Dream Drop Distance incarnation, this version can be activated in midair. The user is invincible while using this ability.
