Before Kingdom Hearts III
Kingdom Hearts III
Yozora first appears in an advertisement trailer for Verum Rex on a television viewed by Rex and Hamm in Andy's room. After Sora, Donald, and Goofy defeat a group of Heartless that appear in Andy's Room, Rex and Hamm confuse Sora for Yozora when thanking him.
Yozora and his teammates are featured prominently in marketing material for Verum Rex displayed in Galaxy Toys.
The Nameless Star tells Sora about Yozora, saying that his heart has been replaced with that of another's and that he no longer remembers her, but if he did he would miss her.
After the defeat of Master Xehanort, Riku begins having a recurring dream where he is in a large city, where he walks past a large building. Yozora sits on the edge of one of its towers and watches Riku unseen.
Kingdom Hearts III Re Mind
Elsewhere, Sora wakes up in a nighttime version of The Final World and desperately calls out to whoever is listening. When Yozora answers back and appears before him, Sora recognizes him from Verum Rex and his meeting with the Nameless Star, surprised to discover that Yozora is actually a real person. Yozora appears to know exactly who Sora is and claims that he is tasked to "save" him before explaining his current appearance is not his true one, but suddenly questions whether that is truly Sora at all. To Sora's shock, he summons his crossbow and sword and transports them to the 104 building where a fearsome battle ensues.
After Sora defeats Yozora, Yozora fades away into light and Sora ends up back in The Final World. Meanwhile, Yozora is woken up in a car by his driver, who addresses Yozora as "commander". As Yozora gazes out of the window, he and Sora wonder if their fight was real or not before Sora says that none of this makes any sense to him.
Yozora has heterochromia iridum, with his left eye being red and his right eye being blue. He has short silver hair, which spikes backwards, and wears similar clothes with more black colors. He wears a black, hooded jacket that he keeps unzipped, with short sleeves; with a studded crown and emblem on each sleeves, gold buttons, and a checkered pattern at the hem. Underneath, he wears a black sleeveless shirt with a red V-neck. He wears black cropped trousers that are hemmed with the same checkered pattern as the jacket, black glovelettes on each hand, and black high-top boots.
He wields a small crossbow-like weapon and a sword with a glowing orange edge. When not in use, his weapons can fold into more compact shapes, with the edge of his sword being nonexistent unless fully deployed. His sword's blade can also transform if he steals Sora's Keyblade to develop "teeth" that resemble the Ultima Weapon's filigree.
Yozora's name is derived from the Japanese word for "Night Sky" (夜空, Yozora?).
Yozora claims that his appearance from Verum Rex is not his real appearance.
Yozora's entry in Jiminy's Journal has his character model facing left to right, compared to the rest of the game's characters models where they all face right to left.
Yozora appears calm, cool, and heavily collected, rarely showing any emotion besides a fierce yet quiet determination. He does show a somewhat cocky side, as he stated to Sora if the player loses their battle that he does not lose. Even during his battle with Sora, Yozora showed very little emotion, whether he won or lost. He only gave a vow that he would "save" Sora should he win and a resignation with a smile should he lose.
Yozora is skilled in wielding his sword and crossbow. He can perform slashing attacks and assault Sora with lasers. He can also ensnare Sora in order to steal his items, even his Keyblade and Kupo Coin, and summon drones to fire more shots at Sora. His ultimate attack involves conjuring up an artificial sun to manipulate the flow of gravity and summon Gigas.
