--------------------------------- Introduction ---------------------------------
================================================================================

  Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories takes place right after the ending of the
original. The opening scene shows Sora, Donald and Goofy who meet with Pluto
and discover a note with him containing the royal symbol. Sora follows but is
soon confronted by a cloaked man who warns of something tragic to come. The
group arrives at Castle Oblivion, a strange and mysterious place that may tell
the story of memories lost.
                                
================================================================================
---------------------------------- Characters ----------------------------------
================================================================================

S o r a

  The main character and protagonist throughout the game, Sora is the rightful
wielder of the Keyblade. In search for his lost friends, he is on a journey
that is full of twists and turns -- mystery is around every corner and Sora
doesn't know what to expect...
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

D o n a l d

  Our magic-using friend is back, but this time Donald plays a minimal roll in
battle and is more part of the story aspect. Use him when ever possible in a
fight because he can heal Sora and damage enemies on the field with his magic
prowess.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

G o o f y

  The shield-bearing phenomenon is geared and ready for action, except he's now
just a card like Donald when the battles roll around. Call upon Goofy and he'll
spin across the battlefield doing heavy damage to anything in his path.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

R i k u

  Our other hero returns but he is still under the influence of dark powers.
Will Riku break free of this void or will the darkness hold him forever?
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

M i c k e y

  The king who reigns over Disney Castle. He set off alone to protect his world
and all worlds from the dominion of the dark. When Riku fell into the realm of
darkness, the king showed him the way, but the two were separated when the door
to darkness was closed.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A x e l

No. 8 in the Organization

  A mysterious figure who stands in Sora's path. Hard to read, half the time
Axel seems to just be messing around... but for all we know, he's done more
thinking than everyone else put together.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

L a r x e n e

No. 12 in the Organization

  A member of the group that controls Castle Oblivion. Larxene is unfeeling and
loves nothing more than to bring other people down. She is on good terms with
Axel but still mocks everyone and trusts no one.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

V e x e n

No. 4 in the Organization

  A man absorbed in his dubious research in Castle Oblivion. Vexen tried to
destroy Sora by controlling Riku and pitting the two against each other. When
his plan failed, he confronted Sora personally.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Z e x i o n

No. 6 in the Organization

  Zexion generally avoids dirtying his own hands when there are deeds to be
done. However, with the destruction of Vexen and Lexaeus, he was force into
action. Zexion confronted Riku disguised as Sora. But Riku no longer feared the
dark, and victory was beyond Zexion's reach.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

L e x a e u s

No. 5 in the Organization

  A born warrior, Lexaeus effortlessly brandishes a gigantic tomahawk. To
counterbalance his rival Marluxia's bid for Sora's power, Lexaeus tried to
conquer Riku. He failed, but with his dying strength dragged Riku into the realm
of darkness.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

M a r l u x i a

No. 11 in the Organization

  Lord of Castle Oblivion and a member of the Organization. In a move to bring
the group under his control, Marluxia used Namine to overrun Sora's memory and
tried to claim the power of the Keyblade.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

DiZ

  Truly an enigma. DiZ appeared before Riku in the guise of Ansem, presenting
him with choices regarding the darkness within his heart. It is said he and the
King have met.

================================================================================
--------------------------------- Game Basics ----------------------------------
================================================================================

  In the field are often boxes or breakable things that contain HP, smash them.
Other things in the field react to being slashed or touched and maybe yield
cards. Green orbs are health and red orbs are for moogle points. The moogle
points are used to buy cards at the shops. Moogle Shops appear when you use a
Moogle Card in room synthesis, here you can use points you've saved to purchase
new cards or sell cards for more points.

  You need to reload cards during battle to keep a constant supply. Cycle
through the card reel until find the reload card, then hold down the A Button to
reload. The number on the reload card is the reload counter, which indicates how
long it will take to reload.

- The first card you use in a sleight and certain other cards can't be reloaded.

  You don't have to wait for your cards to run out before reloading -- in fact,
it's sometimes better to reload when you get the chance. To quickly access the
reload card during battle, hold down the L or R Button to spin the card reel. It
will stop automatically when the reload card is selected.

  Pressing the L and R Buttons simultaneously allows you to stock the currently
selected card. After stocking three cards, you can unleash their power by once
again pressing the L and R Buttons simultaneously. Normally, Sora will use the
three cards sequentially as a combo. However, if Sora has learned a sleight that
matches the types or total value of the stocked cards, then he will perform the
sleight. (The total value and sleight name appear to the right of the stocked
cards.) Even if only one or two cards is stocked, you can use them by selecting
the reload card and pressing the L and R Buttons simultaneously. Sora can learn
sleights during story events or when leveling up.

- You can't stock enemy cards or trick cards.

  Cards have values ranging from 0 to 9. By using a card with a higher value
than the card played by an enemy, you can nullify that enemy's attack and strike
back. This is called a card break.

  However, the opposite is also true -- if the enemy's card has a higher value
than the card you use, your attack will be broken and the enemy will have an
opportunity to strike back.

  Timing is important when using a zero card. Zero cards will always win a card
break when played last, but lose the break when played first.

  Enemies drop various things during battle such as HP, experience points, Cards
and Premium Bonuses.

  When Sora gains a level one of three things can be done:

HP Boost: Raises max HP by 15
CP Boost: Raises max CP by 25
Sleights: Sora acquires a currently learnable sleight

  After the opening scene Sora, Donald, and Goofy enter the great Castle
Oblivion. Goofy wonders if the group should just be heading in and Sora just
wants to find what he's looking for. Goofy turns to shut the door and notices
the hooded man. The man explains that in this Castle Oblivion "to find is to
lose, and to lose is to find". He then leads Sora into a memory of Traverse Town
and begins a tutorial on battling.

 The Hidden Chamber yields the Lionheart card. Key to Reward cards cannot be
found until Floor 7, but when you get one be sure to stop back and open the door
here as you would in any other world before Floor 7. Key to Reward cards are
most commonly found in the last few floors, so don't worry too much about them
now.

  Sora is then left to go after a brief scene. Open the door and then go through
another brief tutorial on how to save, break boxes, and initiate battle. Head
through the door and then up. In this room head left and use a level 1 or higher
card in combination with the Key of Beginnings to enter a scene with Leon and
Yuffie. The group makes a few strange discoveries and Leon teaches Sora a few
new tricks in another tutorial. Leon also gives Sora the Simba Summon Card and
the scene ends. Sora obtains the Key of Guidance.

  Head up to the next area and then use the Key of Guidance on the door at left
to enter another scene. The group continues to expand their knowledge on the
situation with Aerith's help and Leon's quick reaction to one of Sora's old
memories. Aerith explains that the memories are tied to them through Sora's
heart. When the scene ends Sora obtains the Key to Truth. Head through the door
at the top and in the next area use the Key to Truth to enter another scene.

  This scene involves Cid who magically knows Sora's name. He warns the group
of the Gizmo Bell, when it rings a giant Heartless will appear. The bell strikes
and the first boss battle begins.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Guard Armor
             Experience: 48  HP: (Foot) 1/2 Bar
                             HP: (Arm)  1/2 Bar
                             HP: (Body) 3/4 Bar
             Resists: All elements
             Leaves: Guard Armor Card
             Attacks: Stomp, Slash, Spin

  Guard Armor is one of the easier bosses in the game with his slow attacks and
low CV. The enemy consists of 5 parts -- 2 feet, 2 arms, and a body. Focus on
the arms first to eliminate the Spin attack and then the feet. Once the limbs
have been defeated, the body is now open for damage. Pummel away at the body to
end the battle. 

Note: The Trick Card in this battle causes Guard Armor to crash to the ground
      and leaves him unable to attack.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Aerith, Leon, and Yuffie enter the scene and have a conversation with Sora.
As Donald and Goofy begin to leave, Sora turns and talks with Aerith who tells
Sora that the town and everyone in it must be a figment of his imagination since
the town was created from Sora's memories. Sora leaves but Donald and Goofy ask
who he was talking to.

  Climb the ladder and save, then return to Castle Oblivion through the door.
The hooded man talks with Sora again and a red-haired man enters the scene. The
two have a brief conversation about who will test Sora. The red-haired man
gives Sora his name, Axel, and a battle ensues.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Axel
      Experience: 75  HP: 3/4 Bar
      Resists: Thunder and Neutral
      Absorb: Fire
      Leaves: Fire Card
      Attacks: Slash, Fire Wall

  Axel uses normal attacks and can warp around the screen. When he warps he will
generally stock a card or two. When Axel completes his stock he will use the
Fire Wall sleight, simply use one of your level 0 cards to negate the attack.
Use the Blizzard Card that you have to deal a good amount of damage quickly.
Axel isn't that difficult, just stay on the move and make sure you can heal and
stop Fire Wall whenever you need to.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Sora gets new World Cards and realizes he needs them to go
on. Axel reenters and tells Sora some things and he even offers a hint to his
riddle, but Sora says that he'll do it on his own. Axel leaves a warning that
if Sora awakes forgotten memories, he might not be himself.

  Head up the steps and the group tries to recollect a castle they once had gone
through, but they cannot come up with it. Save if you want, then head up the
stairs and go to Agrabah.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: Any world can be chosen, but the guide will follow the sequential order
      that is default. Boss HP is effected by this and is only valid if you
      follow the guide. The HP is directly determined by the floor you are on
      and not the world you are on. Maps provided for each world also only
      correspond to the correct floor. Example, if you choose Halloween Town
      first then the map for Agrabah and boss drops/experience will be valid for
      Halloween Town because information is based on floor, not world. This also
      applies for Calm Bounty and Hidden Chamber rooms.

the Blazing Donald sleight.

  When Sora enters, Aladdin is in some trouble. Fight off the enemies and then
more appear, Aladdin resorts to calling the Genie to dispose of the enemies.
Genie explains his limits and leaves. Aladdin needs to get to the palace, but
since Sora is headed that way too they agree to team up. Sora obtains the Key
of Beginnings.

  Head left and open the door using the Key of Beginnings to view a scene where
Aladdin agrees to free Genie with his final wish. Sora gets the Key of Guidance.
Head through the door at the top and then head left. Open the door in this area
using the Key of Guidance and you will see Jasmine surrounded by Heartless.
Once more Genie takes care of the Heartless, but more appear -- time to fight.
Jafar manages to steal the lamp while you were battling and he takes Jasmine
with him. Sora gets the Key to Truth and the Ether item card.

  Head down two screens and open the door on the right using the Key to Truth.
The group throws their plan into action and Sora, Donald, and Goofy take on the
Genie Jafar.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Jafar
        Experience: 233   HP: 1 Bar
        Resists: All elements
        Leaves: Jafar Card
        Attacks: Giant Fireball, Laser Eye, Fire Smash

  Jafar himself cannot be attacked, so don't try to hurt him. Instead wait till
the platforms rise high enough for you to jump and hit his lamp that Iago is
carrying. The Giant Fireball usually has a high CV, so use a 0 to break the
attack when you can. The Trick card raises the platforms to maximum height so
that you can just pummel the lamp for a lot of damage.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle, Aladdin frees the Genie. Genie gives Sora the Genie Summon
Card and Aladdin takes off. Save and enter the door nearest Sora to return to
Castle Oblivion.

  Goofy stumbles on about Hollow Bastion but still can't come up with the name.
However, he does manage to recall Sora freeing Kairi's heart there. Donald then
asks Jiminy to use his journal to get the name, but the journal is cleared for
some awkward reason.

  Head up the steps to see a strange girl scribbling in a book. The group grows
hesitant in continuing on as they realize they will lose their memories in
searching for their friends, but Goofy reassures them that they will never
forget their friends. Go up the steps and head to Olympus Coliseum.

 This world yields the Blizzard Raid sleight in a Calm Bounty room. The Hidden
Chamber rewards Sora with the Metal Chocobo card.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

  The opening scene shows the group reading an anouncement. A tournament is
under way, so Sora rushes along to complete the preliminary rounds. Hades enters
the scene after and shows his anger towards Hercules. Cloud enters and is then
dismissed to take out Hercules. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The Olympia card can be found and purchased now.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Head through the door at right and battle a few enemies. Head up two screens
and right one, open the door using the Key of Beginnings. A scene with Phil
occurs and after some debate, Sora is allowed to compete. Phil goes over the
rules and the games begin. Sora obtains the Key of Guidance.

  Head down two screens and open the closed area with the Key of Guidance. Here
the group meets up with Cloud. Donald mistakes the situation as an interference
but Cloud tells the three to continue on. Cloud is here for business, but Sora
won't let that go through.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Cloud
        Experience: 308  HP: 1/2 Bar
        Leaves: Hi-Potion
        Attacks: Cross Slash, Omni Slash, Hard Slash

  Cloud tends to use his sleights often, simply break them with a 0 card and
attack constantly. His cards don't hold a high value so most of your attacks
should go through. Omni Slash is the more deadly of his two sleights, be sure
to stop that one. Cloud is also relatively slow, be sure to capitalize on that.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Cloud seems to have taken off, hurry to the finish line. With the Key to Truth
in hand, head up two screens and open the closed door using the Key to Truth.
Hercules has Cloud beat, but Cloud needs his memories back so he tries to fight
on. Hades interferes and fires Cloud, but before Hades can't send Hercules to
the Underworld, Sora stops him.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Hades
        Experience: 372  HP: 1 Bar
        Resists: Neutral   Absorb: Fire   Immune: Thunder
        Leaves: Hades Card
        Attacks: Firaga Ball, Fire Slash, Fire Finger, Flamethrower
                 Temper Flare

  Hades can get rough if you don't pay attention to his sleights. He will
typically use Temper Flare off the start to speed his actions up and increase
his attack power. Try to stop this if you can, if you can't use a 0 to break the
sleight then do your best to dodge his attacks. The Firaga Ball does a decent
amount of damage, but also allows a large amont of time to be broken so be sure
to do so. Hades is also weak against Ice magic, so having a few Blizzards in
your deck should help. Be sure to minimize the amount fo sleights you use.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle the games get cancelled and Cloud comes around. He gives Sora
the Cloud Card and leaves in search of his memories. Go up the ladder and save,
then go through the door.

  The group makes certain they remember what they are looking for when you make
it back to Castle Oblivion. Head up the steps to view a rather informing scene
about the hooded people, the Organization.

Note: The enclosed area goes over what Axel and Larxene say and what it means.
      If for any reason you do not want to know the information, skip this area.

  Larxene is talking with Axel and they discuss why and how Sora was able to
return to normal after becoming a Heartless. It is the reason the Organization
has been formed and only one man other than Sora was able to overcome the odds.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  At the top of the steps Sora shows Donald and Goofy the lucky charm Kairi had
given him. Sora promised to return it, so he can never forget her. A vision
of Kairi forms, but it is interlaced with that of the girl in the chair in a
previous scene. Goofy brings Sora back to reality and the group heads on. Save
and then head to the next area, Wonderland.

  A rabbit enters the seen frantically running about looking for the trial room
in fear that he will lose his head. The group continues on in the peaceful-
looking area. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Head through the door at left and then go up one screen. Try to squeeze a
Moogle Shop in somewhere along the line to get a Lady Luck card. Continue left
and then down using the Key of Beginnings. Here Her Majesty the Queen of Hearts
has forgotten her memories and charges Alice with the theft of them. Sora
intervenes and the Queen sends her Card Soldiers after him. The Card Soldiers
are nothing too hard, they are as tough as a normal battle. After the cards
have been defeated, Alice seems to have gotten away but the Queen sends more
Card Soldiers after Sora; Sora runs away. Sora obtains the Key of Guidance.

  Head right one screen and open the door at right using the Key of Guidance.
Sora finds Alice in this room, but also the Cheshire Cat who has a few words for
the group that leaves them confused. Sora obtains the Key to Truth.

  You get dropped off in the first area, so head left and up two screens. Open
the door to reveal a new area, then open the door in this room using the Key to
Truth. The new scenery startles the group, but Alice wants to take a look around
but unfortunately it gets here captured. Before the Queen can do anything she
loses her memory and a battle begins.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Trickmaster
             Experience: 512   HP: 1 1/8 Bar
             Resists: All elements
             Leaves: Trickmaster Card
             Attacks: Uppercut, Flame Shot

  The Trickmaster won't use any sleights, but the Flame Shot can do a bit of
damage. Stay away from the Trickmaster when you are not attacking with an attack
card, it leaves room to dodge his attacks. The Trick card will raise a table
allowing you to attack the Trickmaster without jumping. Stick to normal attack
cards, Cloud is a good card to use if you are on the table. Once the table is
raised, Trickmaster will try to knock it down periodically, just stop him from
doing so and the battle will end swiftly.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Alice uses some quick thinking to trick the Queen. Climb the
vine and save, then return to the castle. Sora tries to remember the girl he saw
in his vision, but Donald snaps him out of his thinking process. Head up the
stairs and to see the girl scribbling in a book again. Sora remembers the girl
now, she was on Destiny Islands with him but she left while he was little, but
Sora cannot recall her name. When you're ready, head up the stairs and go to
the next world, Monstro.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-


  When the group arrives they are not sure where they are, but Pinocchio enters
the scene and lets the group know whats going on. Jiminy recognizes Pinocchio's
voice and starts talking with him, when Pinoke mentions Geppetto the gang heads
off to find him. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Head right one screen, up one, and right one more. Try for a Moogle Shop since
they now have the Wishing Star card. Open the door at the right using the Key of
Beginnings. Geppetto explains how he got in Monstro and that he doesn't mind
since he found Pinocchio. Jiminy tells the group they need to find the little
puppet. Sora obtains the Key of Guidance.

  Head left one screen and down another, open the door at the bottom using the
Key of Guidance. The group finds Pinocchio who fesses up and the group gives him
the courage to tell Geppetto the truth. The ground shakes and a Parasite Cage
catches Pinocchio.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Parasite Cage
               Experience: 651  HP 1 1/4 Bar
               Resists: All elements
               Leaves: Parasite Cage Card
               Attacks: Tentacle Whip, Poison

  Sora is at a disadvantage this time, the water is poison and the platforms
that he can stand on only stay up for a little while so you must jump from one
platform to another. Fortunately, after a few attacks the Parasite Cage doubles
over and is left open for attacks. Keep hopping around the platforms and attack
with Attack cards do the most damage. The Trick card lets Sora walk on the water
without getting hurt for a limited time, using Cloud in this short timelength
can do some extra damage to get the battle moving a lot faster. Keep moving and
attacking to take down this foe.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the fight, Pinocchio comes up with an idea to have Monstro cough the
group out. Sora heads on with Donald and Goofy, Pinocchio returns to Geppetto.
Sora obtains the Key to Truth.

  Head up one screen, left one, up one, and right another. Try for some Almighty
Darkness rooms in there to get some good drops and experience. Use the Key to
Truth to open the door. A battle ensues, fight the Heartless but defeat them in
large groups to raise the meter at the top-right to full. When it is full it
will not drop, if it doesn't reach maximum you will have to fight again until it
gets to the maximum. The battle yields the Dumbo Card and the group is then shot
out and notices that the ship has been taken out safely. Save and return to
Castle Oblivion.

  Sora begins to remember more about the girl he used to know and realizes what
the hooded men said is true, "to lose is to gain, to gain is to lose". Head up
the steps to view another scene between Axel and Larxene.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what Axel and Larxene say and what it means.
      If for any reason you do not want to know the information, skip this area.

  Axel decides to let Larxene test Sora this time around. Revealed in the convo
is a plan to take over the Organization, what it is remains unclear. Sora is
apparently the key to this and is not to be killed. Larxene reminds Axel to keep
the plan a secret, but Axel seems to have other plans with his final comment.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

 The Calm Bounty room here brings about the Gifted Miracle sleight. Gravity Raid
can also be found in the Hidden Chamber.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

  Here the group meets Jack Skellington, king of nightmares and terror. He tells
the group of a problem and Heartless appear. After defeating them Jack asks Sora
to follow him to Dr. Finkelstein's lab. You learn the Terror sleight and Sora
obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Head right and up one screen each, open the door at the left using the Key of
Beginnings. The Doctor thinks Sally took his potion, a failed experiment that
drew the Heartless to the town. Sora tags along with Jack to find out about the
"true memories". Sora obtains the Key of Guidance.

  Sora starts from the beginning, head right one screen, up two, and right one
more. Open the door at the bottom using the Key of Guidance. The group finds
Sally, but she's hesitant to hand over the potion. Oogie Boogie dashes into the
scene and steals the potion, then swears to bring misery to Halloween Town. Sora
obtains the Key to Truth.

  Head down one screen and right three, be sure to make an Almighty Darkness
room to increase the chances of drops. Open the door at the bottom using the Key
to Truth. As Sora enters the scene, Oogie chugs the potion and starts to flip
out.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Oogie Boogie
              Experience: 791   HP: 1 1/3 Bar
              Weakness: Physical   Resists: All elements
              Leaves: Oogie Boogie Card
              Attack: Dice Roll

  Oogie is most likely the easiest boss in the game. His Dice Roll is always a
level 7, simply break it three times and the gates drop. Pummel him with all you
got while the gates are down and then repeat the process till Oogie is dead. The
only thing you don't want to do is use sleights and kill all of your cards.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Sora is asked to drink the last of the potion, but refuses since he wants to
find the true memories on his own. Climb the ladder and save, then go back to
Castle Oblivion.

  Larxene appears and Donald picks up that she is with Axel. She tells Sora that
the poor little girl will be upset since he forgot her name -- they have the
girl captive and Sora's job is to save her. Sora remembers the girls name, it's
Namine. He picks up the charm that was given to him by her and Larxene strikes.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Larxene
         Experience: 2325   HP: 2 Bars
         Resists: Fire
                  Blizzard
         Leaves: Thunder Card   Recommended: Oogie Boogie Card
         Attacks: Thunder, Beam Shot, Lightning Bolt

  Larxene is very quick and can use a lot of cards really fast. Take advantage
of her constantly using sleights and break them, making her lose a card for
nought. Don't let her use Lightning Bolt, it does decent damage and paralyzes
Sora. Larxene will use attacks constantly, so keep moving and focus on card
breaking her to get an attack in. Heal when she reloads her cards or if it gets
really tough, use the Oogie Boogie card to recover HP quickly. Larxene is the
toughest enemy you've faced so far, but keep it simple and you can beat her.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Larxene mocks Sora and then gives him more World Cards. Sora is mad at Larxene
because she made him remember, not himself. Head up the stairs and a scene
occurs involving Axel, Larxene, and Vexen, another member of the Organization.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what the Organization says and what it means.
      If for any reason you do not want to know the information, skip this area.

  Larxene returns and says the battle wore her out, even though she threw it.
Axel disagrees and thinks she just plain old lost it, then a second voice agrees
with Axel. An old man by the name of Vexen enters and wants to test out Sora,
but Larxene knows he just wants to test one of his experiments. At the end of
the scene, a figure much like Riku appears at the bottom of the screen.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  When you are ready go up the stairs and enter the next world, Atlantica.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

  Ariel enters the scene and seems to be hiding something. Sora obtains the Key
of Beginnings.

  Head left one screen and down another, make a Moogle Shop and get a Crabs Claw
card. Open the door using the Key of Beginnings. Here Sora deducts that Ariel
took Triton's trident and sets out to solve this mystery. Sora obtains the Key
of Guidance.

  From where you are dropped off, head right one screen and up another. Open the
door using the Key of Guidance. Ursula tries to trick Ariel in this scene, but
Sora tells Ariel not to trust Ursula and then agrees to help her out. Sora
obtains the Key to Truth.

  Sora starts off at the beginning again, head left 4 screens and open the door
at the bottom using the Key to Truth. Ariel trades the trident for Flounder but
Ursula wants to show Ariel other worlds like she always wanted to.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Ursula
        Experience: 1730  HP: (Tentacle) 1/4 Bar
                              (Ursula)   1 1/4 Bar
        Resists: All elements
        Leaves: Ursula Card
        Attacks: Bubble, Tentacle

  Ursula has one attack that does decent damage, the Bubble attack. Simply card
break this attack and the battle is all downhill. To reach Ursula herself, you
need to take out a tentacle first. The tentacles rejuvenate, but just keep
hacking away. Ursula will move side to side as the battle prolongs, but will
stop when she is going to attack, card break and counter during this time. The
Trick card will lower Ursula so that just her head shows, allowing time for a
lot of damage to be done.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


  After the battle everyone is reunited and Ariel decides to tell the truth in
the end. Climb the ladder and save, then go through the door.

  Sora meets up Riku on this floor, but Riku is angry since Sora is searching
for Namine instead of him. Riku hints at Sora being the reason Namine left the
islands and that Namine doesn't want to see Sora. Riku transforms and defends
Namine indirectly, then tells Sora he's sick of him.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Riku
      Experience: 2775  HP: 2 Bars
      Leaves: Aero Card
      Resists: All elements
      Attacks: Slash, Whirl Slash, Dash Slash

  Riku is pretty fast, but he uses no sleights and has a low amount of cards.
Magic will be pretty useless in this battle, so stick to a high amount of attack
cards. When Riku attacks, simply dodge roll and counter him. Riku recharges very
often so take advantage of that as well. Riku isn't that hard, just dodge and
attack to take him down and heal when needed.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


  After the battle Riku takes off, head up the stairs and enter the next floor.
Sora is worried about Riku and since Mickey should've been with him the group
thinks something is wrong with him too. Jiminy conspires that Riku simply forgot
that Sora and him were friends. When you're ready, head to Neverland.

 Teleport and Homing Fira are new sleights that come in Calm Bounty rooms. The
Hidden Chamber holds the Thunder Raid sleight.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

  As the group enters Neverland they notice they are on a ship, Tinkerbell comes
in to help the group out. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Head right one screen and up another, the Moogle shops have the Fairy Harp
now so stop by for one. Open the door using the Key of Beginnings to find Peter
Pan who teams up with Sora until he finds Wendy. Sora obtains the Key of
Guidance.

  Go down one screen and right one more, open the door here using the Key of
Guidance. In here Sora finds Wendy, but she tells Peter that she wants to go
back to London. Peter takes off in fury while Sora tells everyone the plan. Sora
obtains the Key to Truth.

  From an optional room, head up four screens and open the door using the Key to
Truth. Here Hook deducts that the group is conspiring with Peter Pan and has a
trap set, but Peter comes in and ruins it.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Captain Hook
              Experience: 1990  HP: 1 1/2 Bar
              Resists: Neutral
                       Blizzard
              Immune: Thunder
              Leaves: Captain Hook Card  Recommended: Oogie Boogie Card
              Attacks: Combo & Present, Rush & Present, Fury Blade

  The ship tilts and moves both characters making the battle difficult. Hook
also has the ability to slash very fast and his two sleights involve massive
bombing that can be hard to dodge depending on which way the ship is tilted.
Be sure to stop his sleights or you will pay dearly for it, they take away a lot
of HP. If you get in a hole, use Curaga or the Oogie Boogie card to quickly
recover health. Magic will do well in attacking from a distance, staying close
to Hook could regretful with out high level cards. The Trick card here simply
stops the ship from rocking.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  With Hook out of commission, Wendy still wants to return to London. Sora
teaches Peter a few things about memories and Tinkerbell leaves her card for you
to use. Save and return to Castle Oblivion.

  Riku stuns Sora with more harsh words and swears to protect Namine, the most
important thing to him. Sora decides to jog Riku's memory.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Riku II
         Experience: 3225  HP: 2 Bars
         Leaves: Warpinator sleight
         Resists: All elements
         Attacks: Slash, Whirl Slash, Dash Slash, Dark Firaga

  It's the same Riku as before, apply the same tactics but this time be more
cautious of his new technique, Dark Firaga. It can do a bit of damage, be sure
to dodge roll to avoid it. Heal when Riku is charging his cards to be safe.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Riku is enraged and after some more jibber jabber, takes off to the next
floor. Sora learns Warpinator. Head up the stairs to view a scene with Axel and
Namine. Sora is baffled over why Riku would want to attack him when they both
want the same thing. Donald can't remember Kairi, and Sora replaces Kairi with
Namine in his memory of childhood friends. Go on to the next world when you are
ready, Hollow Bastion.

 Hollow Bastion nets two more rewards in Calm Bounty rooms, Cross Slash+ and
Reflect Raid sleights. The Hidden Chamber holds a nice present, the Mushu card.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

  Beast and Belle are in conflict and Belle takes off. Sora tries to reassure
Beast, but he is shot down. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Head up four screens, make a Moogle Shop again so you can get a Divine Rose
card. Open the door using the Key of Beginnings to talk with Belle. She doesn't
want Beast to see how she feels because she's afraid Beast will get hurt by
Maleficent. The dark queen enters the scene and takes Belle away. Sora obtains
the Key of Guidance.

  Go down two screens, right one, and down two more. Use the excess of rooms to
build your levels and gain a Wyvern card. Open the door with the Key of Guidance
to see Sora stop Maleficent just in time. Beast comes and Belle casts him aside,
but he doesn't care because he loves her. In one swift movement Maleficent goes
for Beasts heart, but Belle interferes and hers is taken. Sora obtains the Key
to Truth.

  Head up two screens and left one, open the left door using the Key to Truth.
Maleficent explains the whole situation and then sets out to take Beasts heart
as well.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Dragon Maleficent
                  Experience: 2249   HP: 1 7/8 Bar

                  Leaves: Maleficent Card
                  Attacks: Stomp, Fire Breath, Fire

  The giant dragon is nothing compared to the tougher bosses you've faced before
but can do heavy damage. Watch out for the fire that Maleficent lays on the
ground, take it out to get the Trick card and raise a platform. From that height
you can take it easy on healing, just pummel Maleficent all that you can. Heal
when you can card break her and use Cloud's Cross-Slash to deal a hefty amount
of damage quickly. 
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Belle is restored and Beast rejoices with her. Climb the
ladder and save, then go back to Castle Oblivion, again.

  No Riku this time, head up the steps to see a scene with the Organization.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what the Organization says and what it means.
      If for any reason you do not want to know the information, skip this area.

  Larxene teases Vexen for his failed toy, Riku. Axel joins in insisting that
Riku must be waiting further up for Sora. Another hooded figure enters, Marluxia
a man who seems to be the leader, commands Vexen to not fail again. Vexen calls
Marluxia "No.11" and himself "No.4", the meaning of this is unclear. Marluxia
threatens to report Vexen's failure to a Superior unless he personally takes out
Sora. Marluxia confirms the girl to be Namine, the girl Sora supposedly made a
promise to.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Sora tells the others he has no intention of turning back, he wants to fulfill
his promise to Namine. Save if you want, then head to the Hundred Acre Wood.

  A series of events can be completed here to get the Bambi Summon Card. In
order to get it, do the following events. Make sure Pooh gets his honey or he
will get a rumbly in his tumbly, and don't get too far ahead or he'll fall to
the ground and sleep.

- Lead Pooh to Rabbit's cart and he will climb in (use the R Button), this will
  make one of the wheels fall off.

- Now stand next to Piglet and lead Pooh there to engage in conversation and
  get the Confuse sleight.

- Lead Pooh to the group of balloons, Owl will then pop them bringing Pooh back
  down, you get the Spellbinder card.

- Have Pooh fall into the hole that has tracks before it, Roo will pop out and
  hand you an Elixir.

- Head past Tigger and talk to Eeyore who needs his tail. Get Pooh to jump from
  stump to stump in a counter-clockwise motion, Tigger comes by and rewards Sora
  with the Idyll Romp sleight.

- Take Pooh to the beehive just before Tigger and bees will chase Pooh into a
  tree and Eeyore's tail will fall. Take it back to Eeyore to get the Bind
  sleight.

- Head past the stumps and cabbage starts to roll down the trail. Hit 14 of them
  and Rabbit comes by and rewards Sora with the Synchro sleight.

- Finally, take Winnie the Pooh to the end of the trail to get the Bambi Summon
  Card.

  When you leave the area and exit back to Castle Oblivion, Vexen is there and
he has been waiting for you.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Vexen
       Experience: 4125  HP: 2 Bars
       Resists: Neutral
                Thunder
       Absorbs: Ice   Immune: Physical
       Recommended: Maleficent Card  Leaves: Mega-Ether
       Attacks: Freeze, Attack

  Vexen uses a shield, so the only way to damage him is to strike from behind.
He tends to use his Freeze sleight often, so be wary of it and dodge roll when
he begins to use it. Be patient with this battle and card break as your chance
to strike.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

   Vexen leaves a strange message about memories on the other side of Sora's
heart that formed the new World Card. Head up the steps for another meeting of
the Organization.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what the Organization says and what it means.
      If for any reason you do not want to know the information, skip this area.

  Vexen apparently has led Sora into an area the Organization had not planned
for. Marluxia orders Axel to take Vexen out after informing everyone that Namine
can take care of hiding the "other side" from Sora.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Sora is skeptical about using the card, but it's all he's got so head off to
Twilight Town.

 Firaga Break can be found in a Calm Bounty room. The Hidden Chamber holds the
Warp sleight. After defeating Marluxia you can come back here and receive the
One-Winged Angel from a Treasure Spot or a Calm Bounty room.

  When Sora enters Twilight Town he reminisces of Namine, she appears and seems
to be apologetic, but Sora cannot see her. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Head right one and up two screens, open the door with the Key of Beginnings.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: What Vexen says ties the plot together from the original and now, do not
      read below if you do not wish to know.

  Vexen speaks of how his feeling of once being here should be more real then
fake memories implanted by Namine, for the obvious reason that the memories he
has aren't real. Vexen tells Sora that his "other side" was here, meaning Sora
has another part of him somewhere that remembers Twilight Town.

     "If you remain bound by the chains of memory, and refuse to believe
          your heart then you may as well throw your heart away"

  Vexen almost pleads Sora to trust his heart and not his mind, commenting on
how Sora is just a slave to memories like HIS Riku.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Vexen II
          Experience: 5700   HP: 2 Bars
          Resists: Neutral
                   Thunder
          Absorbs: Ice   Immune: Physical
          Recommended: Maleficent Card  Leaves: Vexen Card
          Attacks: Freeze, Iceburn, Ice Needles, Shield Swipe

  Vexen has a few more tricks up his sleeve this time around. Watch for a crazy
Ice Needles attack that follows Sora and the Iceburn attack that freezes parts
of the ground. Dodge the Ice Needles by running away from it, big loops around
the screen seem to work. If Sora touches the ice on the ground he will slip
leaving himself open for an attack. Use the same tactics as before and heal when
needed. When Vexen is low on cards, use the Maleficent Card and go on a spree of
attacks to deal a hefty amount of damage. Vexen will use Auto-Life and come back
with 1/2 life bar when you defeat him, just take him down again to end the
battle.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Vexen tries to warn Sora of falling into the darkness and
becoming Marluxia's pawn, but before he can say anymore Axel finishes him. After
the scene, climb the ladder, save, and return to the castle.

  The organization has another meeting.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what the Organization says and what it means.
      If for any reason you do not want to know the information, skip this area.

  The Organization has been testing it's members in order to take over the rest
of the Organization. Sora is the key to this and Namine is supposed to change
and manipulate Sora's memories, but what for?
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Riku returns and he debates with Sora over who made the promise to Namine.
The war of words quickly turns into a war of might after Riku presents a lucky
charm just like Sora's.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Riku III
          Experience: 5700  HP: 2 Bars
          Resists: All elements
          Leaves: Mega Potion
          Attacks: Dark Firaga, Dizzy Slash, Combo Slash, Dive Slash

  Same as before except with a new jump technique. If you have NeoShadow card
use it off the start to whittle some HP off of Riku and make the battle alittle
bit easier. All in all this should be one of the easier ones.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Riku storms off after the battle, but leaves the lucky charm. When Sora picks
it up it turns into a World Card. Head up the steps to see Sora explode on
Donald and Goofy. Donald simply thought it was awkward that he and Riku had the
exact same memory.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what Axel is doing at the moment.

  Axel has apparently been using everyone for one master plan of his own, the
pieces are set in motion and now Axel just wants to watch the show. Namine is
released freely.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Time to discover the truth in all the mess, head to Destiny Islands.

+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-+=+-

  Sora can't remember Tidus, Wakka, and Selphie and nothing else really clearly
about the island except that he and Namine used to play here. Sora obtains the
Key of Beginnings.

  Head left one and up one screen, open the door at the right using the Key of
Beginnings. Here the meteor shower starts to take place shortly Sora sees Riku,
a good form of Riku. Sora obtains the Key of Guidance.

  Sora starts at the beginning, head left and up one screen apiece again. This
time go up again for two screens and right for another two. Open the door with
the Key of Guidance to fight Darkside.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Darkside
          Experience: 5558  HP: 3 1/2 Bars
          Resists: All elements
          Leaves: Darkness Card
          Attacks: Smash, Darkness, Heart Shot, Omega Shot

  Darkside goes in a pattern of Darkness, Heartshot, Smash, Omega Shot. Simply
get it down and pack in for a long battle. Don't use sleights or you'll find
yourself low on cards. Hits directly on Darkside (his head) do more than those
on his hand so jump and attack when he uses Darkness.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Sora finds Namine, but the real Namine appears to tell Sora that the Namine he
was talking to is not in his heart. A scene occurs where the charm changes to
it's true form and Namine changes to Kairi, Sora remembers the person but can
not remember her name. Sora obtains the Oathkeeper. Climb the ladder and save,
enter the castle prepared.

  Namine tries to explain that Kairi is the one in Sora's heart, but Riku comes
back to protect Namine for the final time.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Riku IV
         Experience: 6825   HP: 3 Bars
         Resists: All elements
         Recommended: Vexen Card   Leaves: Riku Card
         Attacks: Dash Slash, Dizzy Slash, Dark Firaga, Dark Aura

  Quite possibly the hardest battle in the game. Riku holds back nothing and
comes packed with very high level cards and a lot of speed. The most deadly
part of his arsenal is a new sleight, Dark Aura. This will mostly leave you
completely decimated if it goes off so do not let Riku use this attack, card
break it at all costs. This tactic will limit Riku's cards and leave you time to
reload your deck and use the Vexen card incase something goes wrong. Stick to
breaking his cards and then attacking, he is simply too fast to try and out
card. Take the battle slow and focus on what cards he is using in order to get
an attack or a Cure in. Dodge roll to avoid most of the attacks and capitalize
on his long reload at the beginning to take Riku down.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


  After the battle go back and save your game. Now approach Riku and he then
slashes Sora, Namine sticks up and defends Sora but to no avail. Larxene comes
in with startling information.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what Larxene says.

  Larxene tells Sora that the Riku he has been fighting is nothing but a fake,
a mere creation of Vexen's. Namine has implanted memories into his head and he
had been fighting you over pointless things, Namine is the cause for all of the
memory loss. The Organization was going to take the power of the Keyblade and
use it but Axel let Namine fix Sora before he broke.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Before Larxene can finish off Sora, Goofy blocks her attack and Donald heals
him.

           Leaves: Larxene Card  Recommended: Vexen Card
           Attacks: Continuous Slash, Thundara, Lightning Bolt, Teleport Rush
                    Beam Shot

  Larxene has a vicious new sleight called Teleport Rush, it really works like
Dark Aura except its not as damaging. Larxene also has a nasty Continuous Slash
that can destroy you if caught in the corner. Lightning Bolt still paralyzes you
after its done, so avoid that one as well. When she uses here enemy card just
keep dodge rolling, she moves incredibly fast during this period. Again, use
the NeoShadow enemy card while she does this to take away HP while you buy some
time. Use Vexen when you can incase anything goes wrong. Having a large stack
of low level (3-7) cards will prove useful for continuously using sleights which
damage Larxene the most. Heal when she charges her cards or use a 0 Cure to do
some healing and break a sleight.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


  Larxene fades into oblivion and the groups talks with Namine to find out what
has happened.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what Namine says.

  Namine says that she simply replaced everyone's memories. This was the plan
for the Organization and they took her fear of being alone and used it against
her to do their will. However, Namine says that the memories can be restored on
the 13th floor.

  The three stop to think, but can't remember anything. They make the same
promise they made in the first game however, "All for one, one for all". Sora
learns Trinity Limit. Sora obtains the Key of Beginnings.

  Start off by heading right 3 screens, after you synthesize the third door a
scene shows Marluxia coming up behind Nanime. Now head up two screens and then
left four more screens. Another scene occurs, this time with Axel and Marluxia.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what happens.

  Axel turns out to be a double agent, staying true to the Organization and
investigating what Marluxia and Larxene had planned. He then draws his weapon
in following his orders, "eliminate all the traitors".
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Up one, right one, and up one last screen. Open the door at left using the Key
of Beginnings.

  When you enter the room Sora interrupts Axel and Marluxia. Marluxia thinks he
decoys Sora, but Sora says he'll take Axel down and then him -- Marluxia fled
with Namine. Axel says he has a lot in common with Sora, but he must fight even
if he doesn't want to.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Axel
     Experience: 6825  HP: 3 Bars
     Resists: Neutral
              Thunder
     Absorb: Fire
     Leaves: Axel Card  Recommended: Vexen Card
     Attacks: Fire Tooth, Fire Wall, Slash, Warp-Slash

  Try and keep your distance and when Axel closes the gap, strike him. Use a lot
of high level cards to take him down with ease. Though he is fast, most of his
cards aren't that powerful so high level cards will not be broken. Healing
should not be a problem since Axel has a low amount of cards, just heal when he
has to recharge. Use Vexen off the start incase the Fire Tooth catches you off
guard.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Axel leaves a mysterious message, then leaves. Head to the far right and try
to create a save room, then return to the castle for the final time.

  After some talk about keeping promises, the Riku replica appears to prove
Marluxia wrong. Marluxia then summons his giant scythe for battle.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Marluxia
         Experience: 13131  HP: 4 Bars
         Weakness: Physical  Resists: All element
         Attacks: Blossom Shower, Death Scythe, Ground Wave, Swift

  Marluxia is slow, but his attacks are deadly, especially Death Scythe. Keep on
the move and try to wear Marluxia down at first. Break his sleights and keep
moving, heal when he recharges his cards. Count of 10 sleights and then start
attacking him, his cards will be diminished enough to let you attack without
much worry of being broken with high level cards. Stick it to him with cards
like Oblivion to deal a lot of damage. An Omnislash would prove useful in the
battle since Marluxia is weak against physical attacks.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over how to get a few special cards but only if you
      have beaten the game already.

  The Ultima Weapon, Diamond Dust, and One-Winged Angel cards can all be gotten
after beating Marluxia the first time and after beating Reverse Rebirth. Create
a Calm Bounty room in Castle Oblivion to get the Ultima Weapon. Diamond Dust and
the One-Winged Angel can be obtained through a Moogle Shop in Castle Oblivion.

  The enemy cards for Ansem and Lexaeus can also be gotten through Calm Bounty
rooms if Reverse Rebirth mode is beaten.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Unfortunately, that wasn't the real Marluxia. Riku slashes through another
fake, but the real Marluxia lies behind the door. Go back and save if you want,
then go through the door.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Marluxia Redux
               HP: 4 Bars
               Weakness: Physical  Resists: All elements
               Attacks: Petal Spawn, Spike Attack, Blade Shot, Blossom Shower
                        Charge

  This isn't exactly a hard battle, but a very long one. Marluxia has a simple
pattern after you take out his arms, which is Petal Spawn, Blossom Shower, Spike
Attack, Charge. Then he hovers lower to the ground and uses Petal Spawn again.
When you fall off the ship he uses Blade Shot, avoid this by jumping over the
Blades. During each phase you must card break to move to the next phase, the
easiest time to do damage is when you are on to of the ship but you can attack
Marluxia while he does other attacks, its just rare that the window of
oppurtunity presents itself. Keep the attacks up and wait this battle out, heal
when you need and card break while you heal to save time.

 Another good tactic is to unleash Cloud Summons one at a time when you are on
the ship, this will take away 3/4 a life bar and make the battle go by much
faster.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++


  The ending now takes place, congratulations on beating Kingdom Hearts: Chain
of Memories.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what happens at the end.

  Sora seals the door at Castle Oblivion with the power of the Keyblade. The
Riku replica takes off and Sora feels like he let him down. Namine explains that
memories are like parts of a chain, you can undo the links and rearrange them
but you can't destroy them. Namine promises to help this time, but Sora gets
that he won't be able to remember anything about what happened in Castle
Oblivion, even Namine. The three must sleep in strange configurations to
restore their memories, Donald and Goofy head off. Sora promises to never forget
Namine. Namine tells Sora that he is beginning to remember already, the charms
shape is changing back to normal -- Sora remembers Kairi and all his friends.
With his last words to Namine, Sora tells her she will be "forgotten but not
lost". After the credits roll words appear, "Fading memories, reconstructing
memories, and a dream -- a dream of you in a world without you"
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Reverse Rebirth mode is now available for play.

  Riku awakens to a strange and mysterious voice. He is told he is in a place
between light and dark. Riku is given the choice to take the card and go
toward the truth, even though it will hurt. Upon grabbing the card, Riku is
awakened in Castle Oblivion and enters the "door to truth".

  After the Voice informs Riku of the world he is in, Riku runs off. Head up and
then right, enter the door at right using the Key of Beginnings. Here the Voice
tempts Riku, but Riku casts it off. Riku gains the Key of Guidance.

  Head up a room and then left, try to gain a level or two here to be ready for
the boss fight. From this room head left using the Key of Guidance. In this room
Riku asks where all his friends are. The Voice replies that it is because he
cast his friends away and took up darkness that his friends don't appear, and
that he cast away the darkness leaving himself empty. The Voice assures Riku
that all the darkness was not removed. Riku gains the Key to Truth.

  Get to around level 4 and head up a screen, then into the boss room using the
Key to Truth. Here Riku meets with Maleficent, the only person he can meet. It
is because Riku's heart is still tied to the darkness that he can her. Riku
would rather be alone then be with the dark witch.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Dragon Maleficent
                  Experience: 150   HP: 3/4 Bar
                  Resists: All elements
                  Leaves: Maleficent Card
                  Attacks: Stomp, Fire Breath, Fire

  The witch transformed again, but isn't that hard. Start off by jumping and
swinging to deal damage until Maleficent shoots out some green fireballs. Strike
the balls to release the Trick Card. Use it to create a pillar, hop upon it and
resume your assault until Maleficent is done.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After you take down Maleficent, enter the door at top and go back to Castle
Oblivion. Here the Voice reveals himself as Ansem, Riku strikes at him
but is repeled backwards. When Ansem moves in Mickey enters and heals Riku.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Ansem
       Experience: 133   HP: 1 Bar
       Attacks: Submission, Rockshatter

  Start off this fight on the offensive, when Ansem begins to stock cards switch
to defensive and have a 0 card waiting to break the Rockshatter attack. After
2-3 card breaks on Rockshatter, Ansem is low on cards. Begin an all-out attack
on Ansem until he is taken down. Be sure to use the Mickey cards that drop if
your HP gets low, sleighting them should secure the heal.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After Ansem goes down he informs Riku about the truth in the cards. Riku
agrees to play the game, but if he doesn't give up he wins. Ansem gives Riku
a final gift in releasing the darkness in his heart, giving Riku the choice to
use the darkness or not.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
How to: If you didn't read how to use Dark Mode, here's how it works. 

  Riku needs to reach 30 Dark Points (DP). To gain these points, card break
your enemies. The difference between the cards is the result of the gain. DP
can also be lost, whether in Dark Mode or not, by losing a card break or
incurring damage. Riku can only use sleights in Dark Mode.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  A meeting between Lexaeus, Zexion, and Vexen occurs. It is deduced that the
Maleficent Riku defeated was a fake; Zexion also concludes that the "scent" of
[Riku] was close to that of a Superior's. The Organization agrees to bide their
time.

  Riku meets with King Mickey at the top of the stairs. The King assures Riku
that even though darkness dwells it can be repeled, and he will help. Go through
the door to Agrabah.

Jafar

  Jafar cannot be damaged, so don't try or you'll get the signal "Guarded".
Instead, wait till the platforms rise to mid-high level and look for Iago with
the lamp. Strike the lamp to deal damage to Jafar who doesn't even attack that
much. The Trick Card raises all three platforms to maximum height, so use all
your cards then use the Trick Card to get the most damage in.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Head left and then up until you exit Agrabah and enter Castle Oblivion. Head
up the stairs to see a scene with Zexion and Vexen.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area tells about a significant plot point in context to
      what Zexion discovers. If you do not want to know about this, skip to the
      next floor.

  Zexion informs Vexen that Riku is the "scent". Riku apparently has ties to the
Keyblade and the darkness, like their Superior. Further research is to be
conducted, but the awkward comment hinting at only needing Sora or Riku and not
both leaves open ends. If Riku is like their Superior, they believe to be
unstoppable.

  The water is poisonous so stick to the platforms. Jump around to get close and
land some attacks on the monster, then wait for a Mickey Card. Save the card
and focus on card breaking to enter Dark Mode, then let loose Dark Firaga from
a distance to do decent damage. Use the Mickey Card/s that you have saved to
heal if you need to.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle head all the way back left and enter the door at the top, go
in the door there to return to Castle Oblivion. Upon entering the next floor
Vexen arrives and confronts Riku. When asked if he is with Ansem or not, Vexen
answers that Riku is only half correct. Flames brew inside Riku and a battle
ensues.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

 Vexen's conversation with Riku reveals that members of the Organization and
their Superior are those of dark and light, they walk in the twilight between.
Riku is much like this but not at their level yet. The fact that they say they
are in league with Ansem, but in a way not could mean there are remnants of
Ansem or an impostor.

  Focus on card breaking Vexen till you reach Dark Mode, then unleash Dark Aura
and Dark Firaga for the big damage. Stick to card breaking to get your attacks
in since his shield pretty much gets in the way. Dodge to get behind his shield
but be careful of being card broken while swinging away.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Vexen thanks Riku for the data collection. What Vexen will
use the data for is unknown. Take the time to save your game, then head off to

Captain Hook.

Captain Hook
              Experience: 951  HP: 1 1/2 Bar

              Leaves: Captain Hook Card
              Attacks: Combo & Present, Rush & Present, Fury Blade

  The ship tilts and moves both characters making the battle difficult. Hook
also has the ability to slash very fast and his two sleights involve massive
bombing that can be hard to dodge depending on which way the ship is tilted.
Be sure to stop his sleights or you will pay dearly for it, they take away a lot
of HP. Dark Mode should allow you to easily maneuver around the battle field
dodging the majority of Hook's sleights. Be patient and careful when he uses
his enemy card to make all his cards 0, good timing will allow easy attacking.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

 After downing the Captain head right twice and up once to return to Castle
Oblivion. Another conversation amongst the Organization occurs, then proceed up
the stairs.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Zexion and Lexaeus talk amongst themselves about Vexen's idea of a Riku
Replica. Since no one can really trust one another in the Organization, Zexion
and Lexaeus make a pact and decide to let Vexen clean up this mess rather then
having themselves get involved.

Guard Armor
             Experience: 336  HP: (Foot) 1/2 Bar
                              HP: (Arm)  1/2 Bar
                              HP: (Body) 3/4 Bar
             Resists: All elements
             Leaves: Guard Armor Card
             Attacks: Stomp, Slash, Spin

  Guard Armor is one of the easier bosses in the game with his slow attacks and
low CV. The enemy consists of 5 parts -- 2 feet, 2 arms, and a body. Focus on
the arms first to eliminate the Spin attack and then the feet. Once the limbs
have been defeated, the body is now open for damage. Pummel away at the body to
end the battle. On this particular floor the cards you have total to 7, so do
not use sleights unless you like attacking 2 cards at a time.

Note: The Trick Card in this battle causes Guard Armor to crash to the ground
      and leaves him unable to attack.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the Guard Armor is defeated go left two screens and up one to return to
Castle Oblivion. Here Riku meets the replica Vexen was working on. The replica
calls Riku out, saying he is scared of the darkness and then he strikes.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Riku Replica
             Experience: 1875   HP: 2 Bars
             Resists: All elements
             Attacks: Slash, Whirl Slash, Dash Slash, Dark Firaga

  The replica moves just as quickly as Riku would in Dark Mode, so be wary of
his speed. The cards he has fluctuate in value, so counter the lower value ones
with some of your higher value cards to get a chain of attacks started. Card
break his Dark Firaga attacks and save the Mickey Cards you pick up so you can
sleight them for a big heal. Dodging and being patient here will net you the
simple win.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Riku strikes his clone but is repeled back, then the replica
takes off. Heading up the stairs starts a conversation between Vexen and the
Riku clone.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Vexen asks how it felt to fight the real Riku and the replica reassures Vexen
that he'll soon wipe the floor with the real thing. Then Vexen asks if he wants
to meet Sora, the fake replies that Sora is just another play thing on the way
to destroying Riku.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Riku calls out the fake, but is only answered by Ansem who puts in a few words
about the replica and then tell Riku to continue his fight, throwing him more
world cards. Save and proceed to Atlantica.

        Resists: All elements
        Leaves: Ursula Card
        Attacks: Bubble, Tentacle

  Ursula has one attack that does decent damage, the Bubble attack. Simply card
break this attack and the battle is all downhill. To reach Ursula herself, you
need to take out a tentacle first. The tentacles rejuvenate, but just keep
hacking away. Ursula will move side to side as the battle prolongs, but will
stop when she is going to attack, card break and counter during this time. The
Trick card will lower Ursula so that just her head shows, allowing time for a
lot of damage to be done.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle head down two screens, left two, and then up two more -- go
back to the Castle Oblivion. Head up the steps to see a conversation between
Axel, Vixen, and Larxene -- it is the same scene we see in Sora's story.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Axel and Larxene question the use of the "toy" that Vexen has created. Axel
agrees to let Vexen use the fake Riku to test Sora, but under the condition that
he takes a card containing Sora and Riku's home. The fake Riku enters saying
that it's only a card, but Larxene lets him know that he find out how to be just
like Riku. Unfortunately it's not what the fake Riku wants and after objecting
to being pawned off with fake memories and a heart just like Riku's, he attacks
Larxene who simply pushes him off to the side. The fake Riku's fate is sealed.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Head up two screens and then right two more, enter the door at right to face
off with Hades, Lord of the Underworld.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Hades
        Experience: 930   HP: 1 1/8 Bar
        Resists: Neutral   Absorb: Fire   Immune: Thunder
        Leaves: Hades Card
        Attacks: Firaga Ball, Fire Slash, Fire Finger, Flamethrower
                 Temper Flare

  Hades can get rough if you don't reach Dark Mode really quick. He will
typically use Temper Flare off the start to speed his actions up and increase
his attack power. Try to stop this if you can, if you can't use a 0 to break the
sleight then do your best to dodge his attacks. The Firaga Ball does a decent
amount of damage, but also allows a large amont of time to be broken so be sure
to do so. Enemy cards will be your friend here; Malifecents enemy card works
great in combination with Dark Aura. Yield on Dark Firaga this battle, it just
heals him.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  Head up one screen, left another, and finally up again to leave the Olympus
Coliseum. Head up the stairs once more to see another conversation, this time
between Namine and Larxene.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Larxene questions how Namine feels about rewriting Sora's memories, but the
fake Riku intervines saying that Namine wants to forget Sora. He then swears to
make whatever is bothering Namine go away, using the good luck charm as a
reminder. Larxene compliments Namine on the addition of the good luck charm,
similar to the good luck charm that she changed for Sora. Namine assures Larxene
that Sora will never forget Kairi, because Namine is Kairi's shadow. Larxene
just uses that as fuel to the fire, telling Namine that it should be her
incentive to not fail so she can be more than just a shadow.

  Head up two screens and then left three, enter the door at the top to fight
Trickmaster.


++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Trickmaster
             Experience: 1010   HP: 1 1/2 Bar
             Resists: All elements
             Leaves: Trickmaster Card
             Attacks: Uppercut, Flame Shot

  The Trickmaster won't use any sleights, but the Flame Shot can do a bit of
damage. Stay away from the Trickmaster when you are not attacking with an attack
card, it leaves room to dodge his attacks. The Trick card will raise a table
allowing you to attack the Trickmaster without jumping. Don't worry too much
about Dark Mode this battle, but if you do manage to reach it before the battle
ends, use Dark Break as it hits for a lot more than Dark Firaga.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle head right and then up, return to Castle Oblivion and go up
the steps to view a scene with Zexion and Lexaeus.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Lexaeus mentions that "Vexen is no more." Zexion confirms that it was Axel,
an Agent of the Organization striking another down. The bigger problem is Sora
according to Lexaeus, but Zexion figures if Marluxia will hold the light, then
they will hold the dark.

              Weakness: Physical   Resists: All elements
              Leaves: Oogie Boogie Card
              Attack: Dice Roll

  Oogie is most likely the easiest boss in the game. His Dice Roll is always a
level 7, simply break it three times and the gates drop. Pummel him with all you
got while the gates are down and then repeat the process till Oogie is dead. The
only thing you don't want to do is use sleights and kill all of your cards, that
is unless the sleight starts with a Mickey Card.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After taking down Oogie Boogie, head up, right, up, right, and then out of
Halloween Town and into Castle Oblivion. Lexus is there waiting for Riku and he
tells him that it is a shame that he casts away the darkness. Lexaeus then says
he's going to end it now.

Lexaeus
         Experience: 5977  HP: 3 Bars

  At the start of the battle, simply revert to all the 0 CV cards you have and
break all his sleights till you reach Dark Mode, which is almost immediately.
From here, simply let loose on Dark Aura till you cannot perform it anymore. By
this time Lexaeus should be substantially weak, a few good Dark Firaga hits will
end the battle swiftly.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Lexaeus uses the last of his power of darkness to consume
Riku. Here Ansem tries once again to deceive Riku, but King Mickey intervines.
Head up the stairs for yet another Organization scene.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Zexion is disappointed as Vexen and Lexaeus have been defeated. Axel wonders
who is next, suggesting Marluxia. Since anyone who beat Axel should be able to
take Marluxia, Axel assures Zexion that Sora will be Marluxia's downfall. With
only Riku in the way, the two think about how to deal with things.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Zexion comes to inform Riku that Marluxia, Keeper of the Castle was the one
whom he sensed had perished. Zexion gives Riku the world card to Destiny Islands

  Riku walks a ways and see Wakka, Tidus, and Selphie but they just disappear.
Start by going up one screen, left two, and up another one. Enter the door at
left using the Key of Beginnings to see Kairi but she too vanishes. Zexion
enters and explains that only dark beings exist in Riku's memories, that's why

          Attacks: Smash, Darkness, Heart Shot, Omega Shot

  Darkside goes in a pattern of Darkness, Heartshot, Smash, Omega Shot. Simply
get it down and pack in for a long battle. Don't use sleights or you'll find
yourself low on cards. Hits directly on Darkside (his head) do more than those
on his hand so jump and attack when he uses Darkness. Dark Break makes this
battle a total joke.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the event is below.

  Sora enters and strikes Riku down, telling him that he fading away from the
light. Riku starts to fade into the light, but Kairi tells him that no power can
make him fade, not the light and not the dark. "don't run from the light -- and
don't fear the dark. Both will make you stronger." Riku begins to believe that
it can be done, and decides to follow HIS darkness. He strikes Sora, who then
changes to Zexion, crippling. Riku deals a good blow, but Zexion gets away.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

Head up one screen, right one, and up another to exit Destiny Islands. Once back
at Castle Oblivion, head up the stairs to see a conversation.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Zexion is baffled at how strong Riku is, saying it's not possible to wear the
darkness the way he does. Axel and the replica enter and Axel goes on about how
the replica knows he's not real, but could be real. Axel's twisted idea of new
entertainment between Sora and Riku leads to Zexion being destroyed by the Riku
replica.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Ansem yet again tries to reawaken inside Riku, but Mickey intervines once
more. Riku receives a card that supposively thinks it belongs to him. Save and
enter Twilight Town.

  Riku enters the town and immediately doesn't remember ever being here.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  A man acting as Ansem appears, but Riku calls him out as the one who guided
him when he first arrived in the Castle Oblivion. The man agrees and introduces
himself as DiZ. He wants Riku to choose either light or dark, seeing as he is
in the twilight between. He mentions Namine, then leaves.
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Head up one screen and then through the door at the top. The fake Riku babbles
on about how he's only a shadow as long as the real thing exists.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Riku Replica II
                Experience: 3900   HP: 3 Bars
                Resists: All elements
                Attacks: Dash Slash, Dizzy Slash, Dark Firaga, Dark Aura

  The replica likes to sleight, simply put. Find the few 0 CV cards you have and
get them ready. Stock cards for Dark Aura and unleash it when the replica is
reloading. Take advantage of card breaks to stay in Dark Mode and just try to
remember which one you are on the screen or else the battle could actually be
hard.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle, the replica fades out wondering where his heart will go.
Make your way to door at the top left of the map.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  Riku finds Namine and recognizes that it was her, not Kairi that was talking
to him on Destiny Islands. Riku then finds Sora sleeping to recover his lost
memories. Namine says Riku has a choice to make too, about his darkness. The
darkness he yields holds Ansem who will arise and conquer Riku when he does. In
order to seal Ansem away, Riku's heart must be locked -- but this also means
Riku will forget memories involving Ansem, namely anything that happened during
Kingdom Hearts. Riku decides to just rip on Sora when he wakes up for not
protecting Kairi, and tells Namine he'll just take on Ansem once and for all.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  Head all the way to top right of the map to leave this mysterious town. Once
back at the Castle Oblivion, Mickey says DiZ told him that Riku chose not to
sleep.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: An overview of the conversation is below.

  DiZ says that he is nobody or anybody, it all depends on whether they believe
in him or not. Riku chose to fight Ansem, so it was his answer... DiZ is just
there to watch. Whether Riku gets smothered or comes out triumphant is solely
his choice.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-

  DiZ gives Riku a card to unlock the darkness within himself and face Ansem. Go
up the stairs and Mickey assures Riku that he won't lose to Ansem, not in a
million years. Save your game, it's the last chance you'll get unless you have
a Moment's Reprieve card. Enter Castle Oblivion's world when you're ready.

  Simply head up 2 screens, make them large rooms with lots of enemies if you
feel the last few bosses were hard. If you have a Moment's Reprieve card, it's
also an opportune time to use it considering you're getting ready to fight the
final battle. Enter the final door and after a few kind words, the battle
begins.

++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Ansem
       HP: 4 Bars
       Resists: Fire, Ice, Lightning
       Attacks: Rock Shatter, Dark Shadow

  The trick to Ansem is keeping your distance till he gets a little low on
cards. Trying to out card him just ends up in a lot of card breaks on your end
and overall just a quick loss. Wait for his sleights to go off and just card
break them. Be wary of the ten 0 CV cards Ansem wields when using sleights,
striking him at a time when the 0's are gone will prove helpful. Overall this
battle shouldn't be as hard as the last if you keep your distance and use the
Oogie Boogie card when your in a trifle.
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++

  After the battle Riku strikes Ansem down, and even though the darkness is
still in Riku's heart -- he controls it not Ansem.

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
Note: The enclosed area goes over what happens at the end.

  Mickey says that light and dark, back to back is incredible, like nothing no
one has ever seen before and Riku brought it to his attention. Mickey asks if
he can walk the road with Riku who humbly agrees. Riku and Mickey leave the
Castle Oblivion and walk the road till they meet DiZ. "What are you making me
choose now?", Riku asks. "Will you take the road to light -- or the road to
darkness", DiZ replies. "Neither.", Riku hastens, "I'm taking the middle road."
Riku waltzes by DiZ and is questioned, "You mean the twilit road to nightfall?"
"No... The road to dawn." After the credits roll words appear, "Walking this
road without you to remake forgotten promises and meet you at road's end."
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-
  
  Congratulations on completing Reverse Rebirth, new options are available in
Sora's Story now.

================================================================================
------------------------------- Room Synthesis ---------------------------------
================================================================================

  |\  /\  /|
  | \/  \/ | 
  |        |  A typical map card looks like this. The numbers and colors on
  |        |  cards determine what doors can be opened. Certain criteria needs
  |        |  to be met during the Room Synthesis or else the door simply does
  |        |  not open. The value of the card you use to create a room also
  |        |  affects the criteria of doors to surrounding rooms, so plan
  |        |  ahead when choosing your cards.
  |________|

Criteria: In the examples "n" is any given number.

n^ - Must provide a card with a value equal to or greater than n.
n(down) - Must provide a card with a value equal to or less than n.
n - Must provide a card with a value equal to n.
n>10 - If n is greater than 10, cards must be totaled to equal or surpass that
       value.
Color - Provide a card with the given color.
Key(gold) - Provide the matching Key card.

  Zero cards (marked with a 0) can be used to match any value, but not including
exacts.

  There are certain special doors where you need to fulfill more than one
criterion to open the door. An example would be seeing a red card with an =n
value combined with a Key to Rewards.

  The cards themselves also create rooms based on what card you use. In the Card
section is a list that goes over which cards make what rooms and what color they
are. The rooms that provide the greater challenge typically reap the greater
rewards such as increased chances of enemy card drops, premium bonuses, and Key
to Reward drops.

  After opening a door to a new room, all doors in the new open with n+1 value
unless it is a 9 value, then it becomes an exact 0. Example; door is unlocked
using a 2 value card, all doors in the next room open with a 3 value card or
higher. If a door is opened using a 9 value card, all doors in the next room
open with an exact 0. This does not apply to doors involving use of a gold card.

=========
R i k u -
=========

  Riku doesn't get any Moogle Rooms or Premium Rooms because he doesn't need
them, same applies to other various map cards.

  Riku uses the Soul Eater as his primary weapon and is the only card he can use
for physical damage. The cards are randomly assembled for each floor but for
boss fights in Castle Oblivion more realistic cards are used to suit Riku.

  The King is the only Friend Card that Riku can use, but he is available in all
floors. The King restores HP, stuns and deals damage to all enemies, and reloads
all cards.

  Only a select few of the Enemy Cards are used, but all the bosses that Riku
fights except Ansem will yield a card.

================================================================================
---------------------------------- Sleights ------------------------------------

  Sleights are used by stocking (L + R) 3 cards and hitting L + R, but only as
long as the conditions are met for a sleight. Sleights are listed by name in the
order that the game does it.

================================================================================

Q. How do I get a Key to Rewards?
A. White Mushrooms often give them as do Almighty Darkness rooms. To get it from
   a White Mushroom, use Fire when they shiver, Blizzard when they fan to cool
