Illustration for article titled Its Not the Size of Your Keyblade, But How You Use It

In the Kingdom Hearts games, Keyblades are the mysterious weapons wielded by the games' main characters. I've always thought they're pretty cool looking! Guess I'm not alone.

Loads of KH players seem to think so! And the games' biggest fans show their appreciation for Square Enix's Kingdom Hearts and its interesting weapons the best way they know how: cosplay.

Here's a roundup of some, but certainly not all, of the best Kingdom Hearts cosplay the internet has to offer. Note that this cosplay is from several different KH games and that not all the cosplayers are carrying Keyblades, nor are all the weapons Keyblades per se. That's... okay!

Fun fact: Kingdom Hearts designer Tetsuya Nomura originally conceived the weapon as a chainsaw. Disney, which collaborates with Square Enix on Kingdom Hearts, wasn't exactly thrilled with that concept.

In case you missed it, here is Kotaku's roundup of Sephiroth cosplay.
