Trick Ghost (KHII)
The Trick Ghost can be viewed rightside-up or upside-down. Regardless of which half of the Heartless is on top, it has long, white arms with three short, purple fingers at the end of each one. Its body is predominantly white, and it has four yellow eyes—two for each face. Its mouth is jagged and purple on the inside; it also has what seem to be stitches on its corners. When right side-up, the Trick Ghost's mouth seems to be frowning, and its head is tipped with a long, curled antenna. This antenna is decorated with horizontal stripes of purple, tan, and lilac. Its Heartless emblem is on the lower half of its body, between the eyes of the second face. When upside-down, the Trick Ghost seems to be smiling, its head sports several short spikes, and the antenna on the normal face serves as a tail.
In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, the Trick Ghost's white body is light green, and the stripes on its antenna are yellow, blue, and sky blue in color.
The Trick Ghost's name refers to its resemblance to a ghost. A "trick" is an "act or scheme intended to deceive or outwit someone." This could possibly refer to the Trick Ghost's ability to change its battle style depending on how it positions its body.
Trick Ghosts have two different states, one when acting in the air and one when on the ground. In the air, it frequently use its Shot attack while distancing itself from its opponents, as well as countering with Candle Attack when damaged. When a Trick Ghost appears on the ground, it flips onto its heads and begins by using Triple Shot, which it also counters with, as well as Whip Attack which it tends to use afterwards.
To safely counter a Trick Ghost in the air, deflect the orbs from its Shot attack, block its counterattack with Reflect magic, then finish it with combos. On the ground, Trick Ghosts can be dealt with by simply jumping over its Triple Shot attack followed by attacking with combos.
