Keyblade Glider (キーブレードライダー Kīburēdo Raidā, lit. "Keyblade Rider") is an ability demonstrated in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. Terra, Ventus, Aqua, and Xehanort have the ability to turn their Keyblades into vehicles, which they can use to fly, even to other worlds. This ability has only been demonstrated by these four, and it is unknown if other Keyblade wielders can use it.
Although each Keyblade Glider is similar in the manner that they are formed, by throwing the Keyblade into the sky, where it transforms into its vehicle form, the heroes' gliders have drastically different forms. Terra's Keyblade Glider resembles a bike or speeder, Ventus's vehicle is shaped like a winged waveboard, and Aqua's Keyblade transforms into a two-part bow-and-platform device. The Keyblade wielders can also use their glider to attack; Terra rams his glider into the enemy, Ventus spins his glider around at the target, and Aqua uses the bow of her vehicle as a literal energy bow, firing shots at enemies from far away.
No matter the Keychain attached to the Keyblade when the glider is formed, the glider is always formed from the wielder's original Keyblade—Earthshaker for Terra, Wayward Wind for Ventus, and Rainfell for Aqua—and the design of the glider reflects that. However, during the Rumble Racing mini-game, the gliders are given a completely different color scheme.
Keyblade Glider is also the special event for the "Keyblade" and "Secret" Command Boards. When activated, the player boards their Keyblade Glider, and can move to any spot they choose on the board.

List of Keyblade Gliders
The Sidecar Glider is an aerial vehicle that appears in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. Riku commandeers it in The World That Never Was for the second battle with Xemnas and the World of Nothingness on the Altar of Naught. It is only seen during this fight. It is highly possible the creation of this vehicle was done by Xemnas due to his memories as Terra and Master Xehanort.
After the Corridor of Darkness leading to Destiny Islands closes, Xemnas and the World of Nothingness appear to attack Sora and Riku. After the latter destroys the upper tower of the Castle That Never Was, Riku notices the Glider and runs towards it, asking Sora to get on its side platform. The two follow them, fighting the World of Nothingness until they face Xemnas in the ship's cockpit, and the Glider is sucked into a void of nothingness.
The Glider's design is similar to that of sidecar motorcycles, where a small cab is attached to the relatively larger main vehicle in order to provide for a second passenger. It shares many similarities with Terra's and Ventus's Keyblade Gliders. Like Terra's glider, the Sidecar Glider is sharply angled at its front tip, and the seats in both are slung forward so that the driver is nearly horizontal. The sidecar's design is similar to Ventus's Glider, in that the rider must stand as though riding a skateboard, allowing him to strike passing enemies.
The Megalaser is a Reaction Command that can only be activated after filling the Megalaser bar by using Drain to convert the offensive small lasers from enemies into energy.
When Riku uses this command, a barrier is created, similar in design to Aqua's Reflect barrier. This feature allows you to absorb some of the energy from oncoming lasers, and fills the energy meter so that the player may use the Megalaser reaction command. It also reflects some of this energy at the World of Nothingness. It is used by pressing .
This command causes Sora to strike with his Keyblade. Sora will perform a 360˚ horizontal slash. This attack will only hit the Bomb Bells that often appear in front of Sora and Riku. If the Nobodies are hit, they will be thrown into the World of Nothingness, dealing a large amount of damage. Riku uses it automatically when the Bomb Bell Nobodies appear. It is used by pressing .
