The Emperor is a deck of Cards that can be wielded by Luxord in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. It can be upgraded to The Emperor+.

Design[edit]

A card from Luxord's The Emperor deck has the vague shape of an hourglass with spiked corners and a semi-circle cut taken out of the long sides. There is an ornate, orange pattern with a white outline decorating the face of the card. This pattern lines the sides of the card, but leaves an opening at the top and bottom, which creates the silhouette of a shape that bears a curious resemblance to the badge that Terra, Aqua, Ventus, and Master Eraqus wear.

The Emperor is one of twenty-two cards that make up a Tarot deck's Major Arcana. It is numbered IV (4).

Gameplay[edit]

The Emperor's ground combo starts with large versions of the cards protruding from the ground around Luxord, followed by throwing a line of cards forwards then flipping them over, and ends with two wide sprays of cards forwards.

The aerial combo consists of Luxord slashing diagonally downwards with a larger version of the card held in his right hand, followed by riding a larger version of one the cards like a surfboard while performing a forward 360° spinning attack with larger versions of the cards held in each hand.
