|~ Roxas defending his individuality|
Roxas is Sora's Nobody and the thirteenth member of Organization XIII, being titled "The Key of Destiny". Despite being Sora's Nobody, Roxas' appearance is heavily influenced by Ventus, whose heart had taken refuge in Sora's body to heal at the time of the Nobody's creation. Although kind and cheerful to his friends Axel and Xion, Roxas is prone to anger and recklessness, particularly in the face of deceit or when his individuality is questioned. Despite his best efforts to assert himself as his own person, he is ultimately coerced to merge with his original once more to revive him.

Stamina: High, pretty much spent a year doing nothing but fighting, killed hoards of Heartless without breaking a sweat
- Keyblade (Kingdom Key/Oathkeeper and Oblivion): Through channeling one's strength of heart, the user can summon a Keyblade to use in battle. Through use of the Keyblade, the user is granted increased strength, speed, durability, and increased magical power, as well as access to special abilities. Roxas' personal Keyblades are Oathkeeper and Oblivion, two weapons that represent Sora's memories of Kairi and Riku respectively. (though his weapon at first was the Kingdom Key, the same weapon that Sora currently wields). He is able to wield them simultaneously due to the unique circumstances of his creation, unleashing torrents of light and darkness with each swing.
- Black Coat: A magically enchanted coat that allows the wearer to pass through the Corridors of Darkness safely, warding off corrupting influences and preventing the power of Darkness from encroaching one's mind and soul. It is also useful for stealth, as the hood completely obscures one's face and blends in the with the shadows created by the Corridors of Darkness.
Intelligence: Roxas, despite his relatively brief existence, has amassed the combat skills of both Sora and Ventus, dual-wielding Keyblades to great effect even against Keyblade Master-level opponents. He is more brutal and aggressive than Sora, forgoing any form of defense outside of Light Shields in favor of pure offense, attacking with fast and powerful series of wild swings that seek to crush the target without resistance. He has managed to outmatch several of the most powerful characters in the series in Keyblade combat, disarming Sora, forcing Riku to release his blindfold and use the powers of Ansem, and outright defeating Saix, Axel, and Xion, the latter of whom had most of his power at the time. He is also incredibly skilled with both light and darkness magic, unleashing torrents of both with each swing of his Keyblades and firing out swift light arrays to block and attacks and to corner foes he can't defeat with brute force alone. However, his aggression and treatment as a non-individual by non-Nobodies has left him bitter and careless at times, leading to his defeat when he allowed Riku to remove his blindfold and gave Sora the opportunity to retrieve his Keyblade when he misunderstood its "summon-to-hand" mechanic while it was pinned.
