Terra is the one of the three playable characters in Kingdom Hearts: Birth by Sleep. Though slower than his friends, he is exceptionally strong. He is tall, with a muscular build, and has brown hair. Terra is courageous, though he is often unsure about himself. His prides himself in wanting to protect his friends at any cost, though often leaves them to handle problems on his own.
 Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep
Terra is training under Master Eraqus along with Aqua and Ventus for the Mark of Mastery examination which would make him a full Keyblade Master. He fails to achieve this, as the Master believes that he is not controlling the darkness inside his heart sufficiently.
Terra leaves at his Master's request to find Master Xehanort, with the further incentive to prove that he can control his darkness. As playstyles go, Terra is the most physically inclined, focusing largely on keyblade commands and command styles that rely on strength and critical strikes. He is also the slowest of the three students. Several enemies in Terra's journey play off his inability to control the darkness within himself, and he finds himself the student of Master Xehanort, learning how to focus and harness his darkness. Later, he tries to get rid of it again.
After facing off with Master Xehanort, he discovers that the elderly master had been cultivating the darkness inside of him to use his body as a new vessel for his own heart. Upon shedding his elderly frame, he possesses Terra's body, changing his hair color to white. Terra's mind takes control of his discarded armor and fights him for control as a Lingering Sentiment.
 Between Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts II
Terra's heart resided inside Master Xehanort. A metaphysical dialogue reveals that Terra has not given up, and hopes to escape some day.
