Ripto is a villain in Kingdom Hearts II ½.


Ripto ended up in Avalar after plunging his own world into darkness by harnessing the Heartless. In Avalar, Ripto quickly took over after noticing that there were no dragons present (Ripto really hates dragons). After Spyro arrived in Avalar as well, Hades offered Ripto a deal: if he eliminated Sora, Donald and Goofy (who had joined Spyro), Hades would turn Spyro into a Heartless that would be Ripto's to control. Along with Crush and Gulp, Ripto causes quite some trouble for Sora, Donald, Goofy and Spyro.

As a Boss

Being physically small, Ripto wields an array of magical attacks emanating from his scepter. His primary attack is throwing fireballs at the party. These can be reflected to stun him and earn Tech Points. Occasionally, Ripto will go into a frenzy and madly fire homing fireballs all over the place. These can also be reflected, but it is much harder to get these to hit Ripto. Ripto will also throw walls of fire at Sora, which can be dodged by jumping. If Sora goes too close to Ripto, he'll slap him with his scepter. Halfway through the battle, Ripto will summon a Heartless version of Gulp to ride in battle. This Heartless's abilities are quite similar to those of the original Gulp. Ripto will continue shooting fireballs from its back. Occasionally, Ripto will unleash a devastating Thunder attack which covers the entire battlefield and is almost impossible to dodge. This attack can be prevented by hitting Ripto during the short time it takes him to charge the attack.

Battle Quotes

  • "No!" (struck)
  • "What?!" (if Sora reflects a fireball)
  • "Infernal dragon! Prepare to burn!"
  • "You're all history!"
  • "Steady, you useless baboon!" (to Gulp's Heartless)
  • "Chew on THIS!"
  • "You don't stand a chance"
  • "Now you're mine..."
  • "NOOOO!!!" (defeat)


  • Most of Ripto's attacks are based on his attacks in Spyro 2: Ripto's Rage. In the game, he summoned a mechanical version of Gulp into battle, which is replaced with Gulp's Heartless in KHII ½.
