Radiant Garden, temporarily known as Hollow Bastion, is a world in Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance and Kingdom Hearts: Signs of Zodiac. Radiant Garden is the home world of many Final Fantasy characters within the series, as well as the original home world of Kairi and Ansem the Wise.
A ruined incarnation of this world appears in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, and Kingdom Hearts coded, under the name "Hollow Bastion", consisting primarily of the castle that lies in the center of the world, with the areas outside mostly destroyed. Even after its restoration, it continues to go by this name until the events of Kingdom Hearts II.
After the world was reduced to just the castle, following an assault by the Heartless, it is called simply "Hollow Bastion". It regains its name in Kingdom Hearts II after Tron finds a record of its former glory in the computer's database and shows everyone how the town used to look, causing everyone from the Radiant Garden to remember its name. This world is run by Ansem the Wise and the Hollow Bastion Restoration Committee in Kingdom Hearts II. As the ruined Hollow Bastion, the world is controlled by Maleficent.
In Kingdom Hearts II, the Radiant Garden plays a similar role to Traverse Town from Kingdom Hearts, as a sort of "home base" for Sora before he returned to Destiny Islands. In Signs of Zodiac it also is the home world of Joshua, Amaya and Reno ad their family. The residents have aged and appear to be close to 50 years old.
