The Keyblade is a fictional weapon from the video game series: Kingdom Hearts.

The Keyblade is a magical weapon whose exact origin is still unknown. Although 'The Keyblade' was thought to be a single weapon, used by Sora, we later find out that there were many warriors and teachers who used to wield this weapon, but after a great battle that took place many years before the events of Kingdom Hearts, only few were capable of the Keyblade's power. The Keyblade chooses those with a strong heart and has the power to vanquish Heartless, Nobodies, and any other threat found within the series. The Keyblade is known to have the ability to lock and unlock anything.

Keyblades come in many shapes and sizes, but usually resemble a large key, and usually have a special 'key-chain' attached at the bottom, near the handle. Keyblades also have many different attributes that affect the user's stats when equipped.
