The Swordsman is an Emblem Heartless that appeared in Kingdom Hearts χ during the Boys' Day event in 2014.

Design[edit]

The Swordsman is loosely based on the design of Kintarō dolls displayed in many households on Boys' Day in Japan.

This Heartless is dressed in a traditional brown and blue samurai outfit, comprising a blue inner shirt, a brown breastplate, and a pair of brown trousers. It also wears bluish-grey tabi, which are socks that separate the big toe from the rest of the toes, and brown sandals. On its head is a conical grey kabuto, a helmet used by ancient Japanese warriors, and later the samurai class and their retainers. Kabuto are displayed along with Kintarō dolls on Boys' Day because they are customarily seen as symbols of strength and vitality. On top of the Swordsman's kabuto is a gold crest—a kashiradate, or top decoration.

On its back is a red banner on a grey pole. The Swordsman always brandishes a red sword which bears a light red zigzag pattern ending with a swirl.
