10 Kingdom Key

The Kingdom Key is the most basic weapon in the game, and also happens to be one of the most effective. Despite having lower stats, its role in the Kingdom Hearts series makes it a weapon that needs to be included in this list. In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, the weapon can be upgraded past its base form.

The Kingdom Key's base stats are +4 Strength and +3 Magic in Kingdom Hearts 3. Although the stats for this weapon are not very high, its real power comes to light when Sora wields it. You don't have to do anything to obtain this Keyblade. Normal game progression will give each player a chance to wield this weapon.

9 Three Wishes

In the first Kingdom Hearts game, the Three Wishes Keyblade can be obtained from Aladdin in Agrabah. The key is used to lock a keyhole in a later mission of the map. Three Wishes has varying appearances but appears like the photo above in its base form.

With base stats of +6 strength and 0 MP, it is not the best Keyblade in the game but is desirable for its above average stats in strength. Only two of Three Wishes' upgrade forms can be seen in the original Kingdom Hearts game.

8 Crabclaw

If you didn't already guess by the name, yes, the Crabclaw Keyblade is from The Little Mermaid world. Ariel gifts the Keyblade to Sora after locking Atlantica's keyhole. The Japanese name of the Crabclaw Keyblade is "Treasure of Sea."

With stats of +6 Strength and +1 MP, this is an advantageous weapon to use. For those who use less magic and mostly rely on physical attacks, Crabclaw is an excellent choice. In addition to appearing in Kingdom Hearts, the Crabclaw Keyblade also appears in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories.

7 Spellbinder

Sorcerer Yen Sid would approve of the Spellbinder Keyblade because of its design's ode to the cosmos. A crescent moon and a star make this weapon stand out in the lineup of Keyblades. The Japanese name of the Spellbinder Keyblade is "Examination." Both Yen Sid and Merlin can relate to this weapon's design.

With +4 Strength and +2 MP, this is a well-rounded weapon that is most effective early in the game. With only 30 Recoil, the difficulty of using this Keyblade is low.

6 Pumpkinhead

This dark weapon is obtained in the Nightmare Before Christmas world. More specifically, the Pumpkinhead Keyblade is acquired in Halloween Town and is received from Jack Skellington after he locks the town's keyhole. A Halloween pumpkin is seen hanging from the handle of this Keyblade.

With a critical hit rate of x2 and +7 Strength, the Pumpkinhead is formidable for a Keyblade that is obtained through normal progression in the game. As well, this Keyblade only has 1 Recoil.

5 Oathkeeper

Not to be confused with the Oathkeeper sword from Game of Thrones, the Oathkeeper Keyblade appears in games such as Kingdom HeartsKingdom Hearts Re:Coded, Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, and Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories. You don't have to go far to obtain this weapon since it can be found in Traverse Town in the Secret Waterway. Kairi gifts you the weapon for rescuing her.

The Oathkeeper is a worthy Keyblade that provides players with +9 Strength and +1 MP. If that's not reason enough to use the Oathkeeper, its x2 critical hit rate might be.

4 One-Winged Angel

The One-Winged Angel doesn't appear in the original Kingdom Hearts but appears in the Kingdom Hearts Final Mix game and Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories. Interestingly enough, the One-Winged Angel is named after a song that plays during the Sephiroth boss fight. One can obtain this end-game weapon by finishing the Platinum Match in the Olympus Coliseum.

Those who are looking to use magic shouldn't wield the One-Winged Angel; it provides +8 Strength to its user and -2 MP. Notably, the One-Winged Angel has x.05 critical hit rate with +16 bonus damage to critical hits.

3 Olympia

The Japanese name for the Olympia Keyblade is "Power of Hero." Naturally, since the Olympus Coliseum appears in numerous games throughout the Kingdom Hearts series, the Olympus Keyblade follows suit. Olympia is one of the more challenging weapons to obtain, but its worth the grind if you want a weapon that offers +9 Strength and a 1.5x critical hit rate. After beating the Olympus Colleseum's Phil Cup, Pegasus Cup, and Hercules Cup, the Olympia Keyblade is revealed to be in a chest in the lobby.

2 Divine Rose

The weapon has a higher recoil than most other Keyblades, which is a significant pitfall for the Divine Rose. Anything above 30 is considered high recoil, and the Divine Rose has 60 Recoil! With +10 Strength in Kingdom Hearts and an x2 critical hit rate, the Divine Rose is one of the most powerful Keyblades in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 Remix. 

Despite its high recoil, players can adapt to the weapons shortcomings, which is why Divine Rose is an effective weapon. Speak with Belle in the Library of Beast's Castle to obtain Divine Rose.

1 Ultima Weapon

Compared to other Keyblades in this list, the process for obtaining Ultima Weapon is a tad more complicated. In Traverse Town, players can synthesis this weapon at the Workshop after obtaining the necessary synthesis items. Undoubtedly, Ultima Weapon is the most powerful Kingdom Hearts 1.5 Remix Keyblade.

Ultima Weapon has a whopping 14 Attack and gives bonuses of +9 to Strength and +2 MP. In all stats categories, Ultima Weapon bests or at least ties Kingdom Hearts' other Keyblades. It's worth noting that in the original Kingdom Hearts version, this weapon's Attack is 12 instead of 14.
