Other appearances

Kingdom Hearts

Diamond Dust is a keyblade in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix and in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories. In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix it is obtained after defeating the Ice Titan in the Gold Match.

In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Diamond Dust reappears as one of Vexen's Sleights (only against Riku) and his Limit Break, respectively. For the Sleight, Vexen creates a swirling blizzard around the area, damaging Riku. For his Limit Break, Vexen summons ice from the ground to strike enemies from beneath, dealing Ice-elemental damage and inflicting the Frozen status.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Diamond Dust appears again as one of Aqua's Mode Changes. As the name tends to imply, it has an ice-based style that seems to specialize in crowd-control and dealing with multiple enemies.
