** Goes full on LargeHam in his boss battle in ''Dream Drop Distance'', particularly during the phase when he's throwing buildings at you, having dropped all pretense of being emotionless now that it's revealed that he HAS had a heart all along, though not necessarily his original's. Sticks to a lesser degree post-battle, when his reaction to Lea's BigDamnHeroes elicits a subtle but clearly shocked "You!?".

** In the ''2.5'' secret ending Destiny reveals he did come back as Braig, so he either prefers Xigbar or others call him Xigbar out of habit.

* {{Jerkass}}: Every bit as vicious in both words and bite as the rest of the Organization, it even shows in ''Chain Of Memories'' as her attitude towards her enemies and friends alike rub everyone the wrong way.

* AchillesHeel: While in his [[TheBerserker Berserk mode]], your attacks do practically ''[[ImplacableMan nothing]]''. Grab one of the several claymores that Saïx flings around during his rampage, and you can blast him ForMassiveDamage (and knock him out of his trance). His Berserker Nobodies suffer from the same weakness.

* WouldHitAGirl: Both Axel and Marluxia were willing to get Namine killed if it means getting what they want. Saix also had his Berserker Nobodies corner Kairi and Namine when they try to escape.

* GameplayAndStorySegregation: Despite being the most powerful member of the Organization (and even having, on paper, a straight up unfair stat distribution[[note]]Each member has 35-40ish points in their pool. In theory all stats are weighted fairly but Attack, Magic, and Speed are more requisite than the others. Specialist characters have less points but can rely on their single high stat. Only Saix, Axel, and Lexaeus have more points to distribute, but Lexaeus' combination of slowness AND no magic act as the most severe nerf possible, and Saix and Axel are slightly evenly distributed but neglect Str, Mag, and Speed too much for general use. Xemnas, on the other is not only a DOUBLE specialist in Attack and Magic, but does not neglect his other stats, making him a powerhouse with no weaknesses. Tellingly, Marluxia has the same distribution but is a single point lower in most categories. Since he's the other BigBad for whom AuthorityEqualsAsskicking, this is a nice bit of GameplayAndStoryIntegration.[[/note]]) in ''358/2 Days'', his average attack speed combines with the only reduced movement speed to make him the biggest nuisance to control at a basic level.* With glide he has full movement speed in the air, however, and his airborne attacks are often much quicker and more aggressive. Practice can turn him into [[LightningBruiser a very good flying attacker]].

* ChekhovsGunman: Xigbar first appears in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', where his role in the Organization is secondary to Xemnas, Saix, and Axel. By the time of ''Birth By Sleep'' it turns out every major event that transpires over the course of the series happens because he planted the ideas in Terra-Xehanort's head.

* ItIsDehumanizing: Throughout ''Days'', he has no qualms against repeatedly referring to Xion as "it" or "thing" to her face. This is partially because Xion's appearance [[AppearanceIsInTheEyeOfTheBeholder varies according to who is looking at her]]. While Axel and Roxas see her as a beautiful girl, Saix sees her as a faceless puppet.

* SuperMode: His fight gimmick. Gathering enough moonlight allows Saix to enter a berserker mode wherein he's essentially invulnerable and has far more powerful attacks, with Sora needing to either wait it out or use the Berserk Reaction Command to knock him out of it.

* TheGambler: Likes to play games that involve gambling, uses lots of gambling metaphors, and his WeaponOfChoice is a deck of magic playing cards. It also factors into his personality, especially come ''II'', and if one takes into account his character in ''358/2 Days'', always trying to find some fun in the situation. All of the Final Mix-exclusive Organization meeting scenes have him express a sense of excitement of the "game" that is unfolding, but is often shut down by Saix or Xaldin, particularly when he expresses YouGotSpunk for Axel's "[[HeroicSacrifice wager]]".

Saix [[KickTheDog destroys all the cards]] out of impatience and seemingly kills Sora's friends, only for Jiminy to discover that Luxord cheated by hiding his friends in a deck and that all of the destroyed facedown cards were enemy cards.

As a human, he was Braig, one of Ansem the Wise's six apprentices. He also returns in ''Birth by Sleep'' as a recurring foe, and turns out to be a lot more important than anyone suspected. In ''Dream Drop Distance'' he is BackFromTheDead and one of the thirteen vessels of Xehanort's heart in his XIII Seekers of Darkness.

It's revealed later that his original self, Isa, was once best friends with Lea. The two even planned to overthrow the Organization together, with Saïx becoming Xemnas's right hand to facilitate this plan. When Axel started to have doubts about using some of the other members to further their goals, the friendship turned sour.
