When Sora reached the thirteenth floor, he fought him and the Riku Replica created by Vexen and was subsequently defeated.

Crossover CoveEdit

The Kingdom ArcEdit

Being in the cove from the start, Marluxia has been involved in many plots. He first appeared to Tifa in Castle Oblivion, offering to return her to her own world in exchange for helping him. Train Heartnet also joined them in this endeavor shortly after. They left Castle Oblivion to SkyCity in order to collect hearts for Kingdom hearts. Coincidentally, Scars army had done the same. After an encounter with Sora, Marluxia realized he no longer knew who he was, and used this to his advantage. A battle with Sebastian, and immediately after, Grell, caused him to retreat with his new companion, Sora. Later in the arc, He made a contract with Ciel Phantomhive after a short battle with him.

After the release of U-D, Marluxia shielded his companions from her infernal emission attack by quickly pulling them through a corridor of darkness. He remained there for some time until the Nobody of the replica he's used during his first attempt at controlling Sora found his way into the castle. He immedietly went to eliminate him so as to prevent him revealing the truth. This was in vain as more allies came and he was heavily outnumbered. It's only thanks to Ciel's intervention that he survived.During this fight, Nixio restored Sora's memories of Castle oblivion, Causing him to use his Kefka form and Attack Marluxia. He pulled Hermione Granger and Xion into his alternate dimension to fight him away from the rest of their allies, during which devil may cry music was played and Hermione obtained the sword of Gryffindor. He'd almost won, but Stern the Destructor intervened and stopped the fight.

Once on Jail's ship, the Saint's Cradle, he immediately asked their strategy. Later on, as Fate Testarossa was about to go capture Thoma Avenir, he offered himself to help protect her through use of the death count ability he held. During this fight, Thoma had used a move called Divide Zero - Eclipse, which stopped the heart of anyone that held magical power within them. Marluxia was generally unaffected by this move as he had no heart to stop. Once They had returned to the ship with Thoma, he awaited the battle with U-D to begin. Once it had, He took on a a new form to combat her. As the fight ensued, he was saved by Xikru from a half charged, focused infernal emission. It was at this point they were revealed to not only know each other, but be close friends. The two played a major role in the fight. Causing significant damage several times.

Skills and abilitiesEdit

  • The death count: Marluxia puts a translucent black number above the victim's head, starting at 50. All damage to and from the affected person is nullified. With each hit, it raises or drops by 1. Should it hit 0, it means almost certain death or incapacitation for the victim. If it hits 100, the curse is broken and Marluxia temporarily stunned. This was used to protect Fate in the battle to capture Thoma.
  • Flower enrgy: He has the ability to Manipululate and control flower petals into deadly forms of energy as well as form them into solid objects such as flower-themed minions that shoot similar beams of energy, only on a much smaller scaled as well as a clone of himself.

The second is a form in which he is adorned with nobody symbol and all his regular attacks gain an increase in damage.
  • Wind manipulation: Although not as profficient as Xaldin in this, he displays some control over the element of wind.

  • Scytheplay: He has been shown to have a master skill level at weilding a scythe. He often flourishes his weapon after he strikes, occasionally leaving himself open to counterattack.
