     -- Your guide is big. How do I find stuff? --

Use ctrl + F to bring up a search box. Type in the word or phrase you want to
find. Copy the brackets and the letters inside of them to then paste it inside
the find box to get to the desired section. I find Firefox's ctrl + F easier
to use than Internet Explorer's is.

     -- Should I play the original 'Kingdom Hearts' first? --

It is not necessary. Play them in either order and you can still fully
appreciate both of them. Obviously playing this game first will cause some of
the story events in the first game to be spoiled, but the same can be said of
watching any of the Disney properties on which most of the worlds are based.

Chain of Memories' battles feature an interesting combination of active
movement and card use. Using cards is how you attack physically, use magic and
items, and call on allies for help.

I do not want to give spoilers to how many worlds there are or what they are
at the beginning of the walkthrough. However it can be a hassle to scroll
down. Use ctrl + f to find the world you are looking for. Simply put in [3.xx]
with xx being the first two letters of that world's name.

Chain of Memories continues where the first Kingdom Hearts ends off. Sora,
Donald, and Goofy see Pluto and go chasing after him. Sora soon encounters a
strange figure in a dark hooded cloak. He follows after the mysterious figure
to an odd castle. Lured by the promise of finding his friends, Sora takes a
card from the figure and opens a door.

Past the door the shrouded figure teaches Sora about the battle commands.
Chain of Memories' battles feature an interesting combination of active
movement and card use. Using cards is how you attack physically, use magic
and items, and call on allies for help.

After you finish talking to him the figure leaves as quickly as he came. Walk
to the northeast door and tap A to strike it with your Keyblade. Striking
doors, Heartless, barrels, boxes, and other items with your Keyblade leads to
good things. In this case it brings up the Map Card menu.

Map Cards are used to open doors. They can be gotten by defeating enemies or
finding them hidden in barrels, boxes or other objects. To open a door, you
have to use the proper Card or create the proper Map Card using the cards you
have in stock. Hit A to select a Card and B to cancel that selection. In this
case the Blue 1 Card will open the door. You can recreate rooms as many times
as you want by striking the door frame and using another Map Card.

Here is a description of the Cards you begin the game with. Most of them are
pretty self explanatory.

   |<3| Shadow |<3|

The Shadow Heartless are black with yellow eyes. They hurt you with their
claws, but are not strong or fast. They often come in packs or with other more
challenging Heartless. Physical attacks and magic spells work well against
them.

   |<3| Soldier |<3|

Armored Heartless. Have increased HP and attack power. Their best attack is
a spinning leap where they hurl themselves at their target.

   |<3| Red Nocturne |<3|

Flying Heartless that attacks with Fire magic. Weak to Blizzard, healed by
Fire.

   |<3| Blue Rhapsody |<3|

Flying Heartless that attacks with Ice magic. Weak to Fire, healed by
Blizzard.

                    ______________________________________

Defeating Heartless usually gets you a Map Card at the end of the battle. Map
Cards are used to open up more doors in the world and create the room. To use
a Map Card move up to an unopened door and swing your Keyblade at it. Then
select the Card you wish to use. Here are the different types of Cards the
game might ask you for:

White Card outline that appears has an up arrow on it and a number then only
cards of that number and higher can be used to open the door.

White Card outline has a down arrow and a number on it only cards of that
number and lower can be used to open the door.

White Card outlines with an equal sign and a number require you to use a Card
that matches that number exactly.

  ***Zero Cards can be used to satisfy any of the above three requirements***

Card outlines with a number of 10 or larger require you to use Cards who sum
equal or exceed that number (i.e. if it is the number 15 you have to use three
Map Cards of 5 value or two Map Cards of 8 value, etc.)

Colored Card outlines require that you can only use Cards of that color.

Solid Yellow Cards indicate that you have to have and use that Card to open
the door.

So that asks the question, which Map Cards should I use to open up rooms? Here
is a rundown of the different Map Cards you can get. Blue Cards, for the most
part, open up rooms without any enemies or rooms with Treasure. Red Cards open
up rooms with Heartless in them. Green Cards do the same but provide you with
some in battle bonuses. See section five for a list and description of the
various Map Cards.

Grabbing the blue and red dots that defeated enemies drop in battle gets you
experience. At each level up you have the choice of increasing one of three
things.

   |<3| HP - Hit Points |<3|

Raise HP by 15. The more Hit Points Sora has the more damage he can take.

   |<3| CP - Chain Points |<3|

Raise CP by 25. The more Chain Points Sora has the more Cards Sora can equip
to his Deck.

   |<3| Sleight |<3|

Learn a new sleight. Not available at every level up.

As a general rule of thumb I recommend that for every four level ups two go
towards CP, one toward HP, and one for learning a new sleight. It is
completely up to you and different playing styles will prefer raising
different stats. For a list of sleights check out section seven.

     --/<3\-- Traverse Town a --/<3\-- 

The card brings you to Traverse Town. Move north to the Dark floating triangle
object. This is a Save Point. You can save your game here. At most times in
the game you can press start, go to the menu and perform a temporary save, but
Save Points are the only permanent way to save your game.

After examining the save point a barrel will fall from. Smash it with A and
grab the Card that emerges from it. A Heartless will appear. Smack it with
your Keyblade to enter battle. If can still enter battle by simply touching
it, however if you hit it before entering battle all enemies on the field will
be dazed.

Kill the Shadows and collect the blue dots they drop for experience. Grab the
Red 2 Card from the defeated Heartless and proceed southeast to the door. Use
that card to open the door.

The treasure room in this world contains the Lionheart Keyblade. You can not
get Treasure Cards until later in the game so do not worry about it for now.

and you will notice that at the bottom of your current Deck a 1 Attack Card
has appeared. That is how you equip additional Cards to your Deck. Notice the 
CP stat listed in the Deck information. Each Card requires a  certain amount
of CP to equip. The more CP you have the more Cards you can equip. You can

How much you want to fight is up to you. Remember though that to open the next
door you need Map Cards that you can only get by defeating enemies. You can
leave and come back to an area to resmash the breakables and find more stuff,
but there is a limited amount of Heartless in each room. Exit to the
northeast.


     --/<3\-- Traverse Town c --/<3\--

Proceed to the northwest. Here you will encounter Squall err... Leon.
Something strange is going on. Leon and Yuffie know your names but do not
remember how you met the experiences you shared. Yuffie goes on to tell Aeris
as Leon teaches you some new battle techniques.

   |<3| Stocking Cards |<3|

To use multiple cards in a sequence, press L + R on three Cards and then once
more to use all three Cards. Doing this with three Keyblade Cards can lead to
combo attacks. Stocking Cards lets you play a larger number (making it harder
for you to be broken), unlock sleights, and strengthen Magic Cards.

The drawback is that every time you stock up three cards and unleash them, you
lose the first Card you picked. The Card cannot be reloaded in battle but it
can be brought back by using a strong enough Potion.

After talking to Squall he will give you the Simba Summon Card and send you
back to the room you where just in. Take the northeast door.

   |<3| Simba |<3|

"Simba lets out a mighty roar that deals damage to enemies in front of him.
Stock more than one and his roar will also stun enemies."

Acquired: In Traverse Town in the Key to Guidance room

An area damaging Card that is good to use at the beginning of the game. I feel
that it lacks power as the game progressed and as much as I like Simba I find
that there are better things to use my CP on. Once you get multiple Simba
Cards, give Simba a reexamination to see if his added stun bonus is something
you like to use. Stunning people is okay, but when using two Summon Cards
expecting the enemy to die is not unreasonable.

My Grade: B

CP Values: 20, 22, 24, 26, 28, 30, 32, 34, 36, 38

                    ______________________________________
                    |::|<3|::|   BATTLE  TIPS   |::|<3|::|
                    ______________________________________

Battles consist of hitting L and R to cycle through your Cards--shown on the
lower left part of the screen--and hitting A to use that Card. You can get
more Cards by beating enemies and finding them in barrels and boxes. To equip
more Cards press start and go to the Deck Check menu. There you can equip more
Cards to you current Deck or customize another one. The more CP you get
the more Cards you can equip.

An important thing to remember is that touching the enemy does not hurt you.
Touching them while they are using attacks does but simple touching them does
not. You can tell when the enemy is attacking and how strong that attack is by
looking at the enemy Cards that appear on the right part of the screen.

   |<3| Card Numbers |<3|

Higher numbered Cards are stronger than lower numbered Cards. If you and an
enemy both use a Card at the same time the higher Card will get to perform and
the lower one will be broken. Having a Card broken stuns the user and in the
case of flying Heartless brings them to the ground for a second.

Zero Cards are the exception. They are like the Spy in Stratego. If they are
used first they can easily be broken but if they are played after an enemy
uses an attack--no matter how strong--they will always cause a break. Save
your Zero Cards for key moments in battle, like when the enemy is about to hit
you with a powerful attack.

   |<3| Keyblade Cards |<3|

Select any of the red Cards with the Keyblade and a number on them. Remember
that when your attack Cards run out, you can get more of them by cycling to
the black card and holding A. The number on the card indicates the cards
power. Higher numbers means more attack power. The white numbers on the black
rectangle further to the left tells you how many cards you have left. Press L
and R at the same time to stock up Keyblade Cards for combo attacks and to
unleash sleights.

Remember that stocking cards and using sleights causes the first stocked Card
to not be able to be reloaded for the rest of the battle. For battles that are
going to be long, try to strike a balance between using sleights and standard
attacks.

Here is a rundown of the cards you start with at the beginning of the game:

   |<3| Kingdom Key |<3|

"The default weapon. Not very powerful, but reliable and easy to handle."

Attack: D          Stike: D+         Thrust: D+         Combo Finish: D+ 
Swing Speed: B     CB Recovery: B    Element: Physical  Break Recovery: B
Required CP: *

The basic Keyblade Card. Nothing flashy but it generally does have a low CP
value. Consider using them for Zero Cards (as the main thing to do is to break
your enemy, damage is not that important for Zero Cards), as the first card
for certain stocks and to fill in your CP when you have a little space. Over
the course of the game you will probably replace most of your Kingdom Key
Cards with better cards.

My Grade: C
CP Values: 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19 

   |<3| Blizzard |<3|

"Magic that deals ice damage. Stock 2 cards for Blizzara and 3 cards for
Blizzaga."

Acquired: Start game with it

If Blizzard was a type of gun I would compare it to a shotgun. It is good for
immobile enemies and spreads to have a decent area of effect.

My Grade: B-
CP Values: 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20, 21, 22, 23, 24

   |<3| Cure |<3|

"Magic that restores HP. Stock 2 cards for Cura and 3 cards for Curaga."

Acquired: Start game with it

An excellent Card that provides Sora with healing. Its CP cost is a bit high
but I like to carry around multiple Cures for when the situation demands it.

My Grade: A-
CP Values: 25, 27, 29, 31, 33, 35, 37, 39, 41, 43

   |<3| Friends |<3|

Green Ally Cards drop into battle. Collect them by touching them. Pressing L
and R at the same time allows you to use up to three ally cards at the same
time. Combining ally cards of the same character causes the ally to use
stronger attacks.

     Donald - Donald uses a variety of magic spells

     Goofy - Goofy attacks with a Shield and unique physical abilities.

   |<3| Potion |<3|

"Quickload available attack cards with no charge time required. It does not
work on cards that cannot be reloaded."

Acquired: Start game with it

The Card has a huge CP value and does not do that much. Hi Potion becomes
availabe pretty quickly in the game and makes this Card obsolete.

     --/<3\-- Traverse Town e --/<3\--

Take the northwest door. In that room you will talk to Aeris and then be sent
back here. Go through the Northeast exit.

The story gets more complicated. Leon and Yuffie remember talking to Sora and
Aeris' intuition descerns some of Sora's motivations. Are the three really
there or are they reflections of Sora's memories? What is going on?

     --/<3\-- Traverse Town g --/<3\--

The northwest door sends you to Cid and then a fight with a boss. Make sure to
have your Deck in order and I recommend being at at least level 3. Any time
you use the Key of Truth in the various worlds make sure that you are prepared
for a fight with a boss.

     --/<3\-- Traverse Town h --/<3\--

Cid warns you about a large Heartless that comes when the bell is rung. Goofy
suggests but the bell begins to ring out...

                         \\-------------------------//

"A Heartless that haunts Traverse Town."

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Hand Attack: A slow, weak attack from one of his hands.

Foot Attack: Sends both feet stomping out at you in a direct line. Hurts on
             the way out but the feet are vulnerable as they return to the
             body.

Jump:        Causes damage by shaking the floor. To avoid be in the air when
             he lands.

Spinning Hands: Hands rotate quickly around Armor Guard. Retreat when he
                begins this attack and resume fighting him when it ends.

After defeating his extremities, Armor Guard starts using a few new attacks.

Spinning Torso: Torso spins rapidly around the battlefield. Dodge Roll to
                avoid it.

Jumping Torso:  Torso repeatedly bounces up and down, shaking the floor and
                causing damage to a grounded Sora with every bounce. To avoid
                be in the air when he lands.

   |<3| Places to Attack |<3|

Each of Armor Guard's hands and feet can be attacked. Once they are destroyed
his torso becomes vulnerable. Kill the torso to end the battle.

   |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Simba is an excellent Card for this boss. For pretty much every battle I urge
you to bring Cure. Blizzard is good for when the boss is stunned by a Mickey
Card.

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

Keep the corner of your eye on the lower right part of the screen. When a grey
card appears there, Armor Guard is about to attack. For his Jump attack make
sure you jump and are in the air when he is about to land. Dodge Rolling is an
effectice way to avoid the rest of his attacks.

Focus on destroying him one limb at a time. Attack the target just after the
Heartless has finished his attacks or with higher Cards to minimize Card
Breaks. Only use Combo Attacks for your low value 0, 1, and 2 Cards and when
you do use it Jump in the air and then hold L+R to release the attack. That
allows you to potentially hit multiple targets multiple times. Simba works
well against him and remember to use Cure when needed.

Occasionally a green Mickey Card will drop. Use this in combination with
Blizzard and your lower Keyblade Cards. This Card will shake the battlefield
and drop all pieces of Armor Guard to the ground. Unleash as many attacks as
you can before he stands up again. Sliding Dash is okay here as it allows you
to hit multiple limbs.

Once his limbs are gone he attacks anew. His torso form is faster and requires
you to Dodge Roll and jump more often. Cure often and save some Keyblade Cards
and Blizzard for when you get a Mickey Card. Defeat the boss to get a Guard
Armor Deck Card.
---

Sora did not find his friends and decides to press on. He recieves some
encouragement from Leon and an ominous message from Aeris; beware of you
memories and the illusions they can create.

     --/<3\-- Traverse Town i --/<3\--

A Save Point is located in front of you and a World exit to the northeast.
There are two more unexplored rooms to the southwest, but you need a Treasure
Map Card to reach the second room. Treasure Map Cards are dropped by 
Heartless. Save before leaving Traverse Town and every subsequent world.
Danger may await...

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ================================= ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
                     //<3\\  Castle Oblivion  1F  //<3\\
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ===================================== ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

A bit of advice for when you fight human opponents that like to stock up
Cards. The attack he is about to unleash starts flashing in the upper right
when the Cards are stocked. Try to keep your high out for that so you can can
anticipate what is coming.


                         //--------------------------\\
                           !<3!       Axel       !<3!
                         \\--------------------------//

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Attack:     Axel's standard attack. Accompanied with a short lunge.

Flame Wall: Launches a wall of flame at Sora that stretches from the bottom to
            the top of the screen. Dodge Roll through it to avoid damage.

Throw:      Throws one of his weapons and teleports to the other side of Sora
            to collect it. As long as you are not a stationary targety you
            should beable to dodge it.

Stock Attack: Much like Sora's version, Aksel attacks in rapid succession on a
              target that has wandered too close.

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

Axel is not very hard. Standard attacks and stocking smaller number Cards work
well. Simba is a good card to use when he gets close. Remember to be
constantly on the move, Dodge Roll through the Flame Wall attack, and use Cure
when needed. Beat Axel to get the Fire Card and some World Cards.

You will probably notice how quickly Axel runs through his deck and how like
you has to often reload. Against some human enemies an effective strategy is
to play defensively until the enemy has run through their deck a few times and
then attack them as they reload from 3. I will mention which enemies this is
particularly good against, but it is something to keep in mind for all human
enemies.

   |<3| Fire |<3|

Acquired: After beating Axel

If Fire was a type of gun I would compare it to a rifle. It only hits one
enemy but it can be fired from a greater distance than Blizzard.

Precede up the stairs to the next room. Here you will find a Save Point and a
Warp Point, which allows you to warp to previous worlds. To the northeast is a
door to five new worlds. You can choose whatever world you want but be warned
that the map of the world is determined by the order you choose the world.
There is a set map for the second world you choose, Floor 2 (F 2), regardless
of which world you select. Same for the succeeding floors. To jump to that
world's part of this FAQ hold Control, press F, and type in one of these
brackets.

To maximize the usefulness of this walkthrough, follow the order that I lay
out. It is not essential though and even if you choose to do the worlds in a
different order you can still get some useful information from this.

An important note. When you go to another floors, all the rooms in the world
you were just at are erased. For example by going to Olympic Colliseum, all
the doors at Traverse Town now require Map Cards to open. Sometimes you will
not have the right Map Card to open a door and all the Heartless in that world
have been vanquished and you will have either recreate the room by striking
the door again and using a Map Card or go to another floor and then come back.
You canleave the world you are at any time, go to Castle Oblivion, save, and
go into that same world with no penalty.

You might be wondering how to get more Cards with better numbers on them and
what those red Moogle Point balls are for...

Collect Moogle Points by breaking barrels, boxes, or whatever the world has to
offer. Spend those points at Moogle Shops to buy new Cards or sell old ones.
To get a Moogle Shop, open an unlocked door with a Moogle Map Card. Moogle Map
Cards are gotten the same way as regular Map Cards are, by defeating Heartless.
Simply creating a Moogle Shop and talking to the moogle gets you a pack of
Cards.

At the Moogle Shop the moogles on the left sells packs of Cards. Red are
Keyblade Cards, blue are magic Cards, and green are item Cards. You can also
buy packs that are a combination of all three. The Moogle on the right melts
Cards down and give you Moogle Points in exchange.

strike stone pillars. Some barrels are actually Heartless in disguise. You can
also jump on the barrels with stars on them and the large square stones to get
things. This world's unique Keyblade:

Huge Heartless with a fat belly. Take little damage to the front but are

get behind them. When it is travelling with help, try to eliminate the other
Heartless first.

   |<3| Red Nocturne |<3|

Flying Heartless that attacks with Fire magic. Weak to Blizzard, healed by

Heartless that looks like a monkey. Has a quick, distanced attack but does not
have much life. Try to attack it before it attacks you.

   |<3| Bouncywild |<3|

Heartless that looks like a female monkey. Has a quick, distanced attack but
does not have much life. Try to attack it before it attacks you. Watch out for
the banana peels that it drops.

   |<3| Barrel Spider |<3|

Heartless that appears to be a barrel until you get close. Uses a self
destruction attack that ends its own life but hurts Sora if he is standing
nearby. Take them out with long range attacks or quick combo attacks.

The northwest door is your path. To the northeast is another room which has
the Treasure Room door.

     --/<3\-- Olympic Coliseum d --/<3\--

There is a boss fight through this door. Make sure you are ready before
preceeding.

     --/<3\-- Olympic Coliseum e --/<3\--

The rules of the tournament allow participants to fight, but Cloud chooses to
let you go by. Sora asks him why and finds out that Cloud wants to kill
Hercules. En guarde!

                         //-------------------------\\
                           !<3!      Cloud      !<3!
                         \\-------------------------//

Cloud is always brooding and angsty. He is susceptible to attacks and magic,
but I bet that there is an easier way to defeat him. I believe that Cloud just
needs a hug and someone to tell him "it's not your fault" but alas there is no
such Deck Card.

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Attack:      Cloud uses a standard attack Card and swings his sword.

Cross-slash: Cloud launches himself next to you and performs three swipes in
             a quick sequence.

Omnislash:   Cloud jumps into the air and performs three diving attacks at
             Sora, alternating the sides that he attacks from. Dodge Roll
             towards the side he is swooping in from to avoid.

   |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Cure, at least one 0 Card, Simba

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

Cloud can be hard. He is very capable of breaking your Cards and his Omnislash
technique requires precise Dodge Rolling to avoid. The key to beating him is
to attack him at the correct time. If you attack him when he is performing his
stock attacks, more often than not you will have some Cards broken. Strike him
when he is using low cards, not attacking, or reloading. Make sure you use your
Cure at times when he is not going to break it.

Cloud often has to recharge his Deck. When going to attack him while he is
recharging, he will usually jump over you and go to the other side of the
screen. The solution? Perform a Jump attack as you approach him. Cloud will
actually fly into it as you get near him. 

Make sure you bring a Zero Card into this battle. Save it for when Cloud
starts doing his Omnislash and break that attack. Defeat Cloud to get a
Hi-Potion and the Key to Truth.


   |<3| Hi-Potion |<3|

"Quickly reloads attack cards with no charge time required. Even normally
unreloadable cards are restored."

Acquired: In Olympic Coliseum in the Key to Guidance room

This Card found a quick and lasting home in my Deck Chain. The CP might be a
bit high but restoring a deck full of unreloadable Cards is a great thing.

After defeating Cloud head back to Olympic Coliseum a (southeast, southwest)

world's boss.


     --/<3\-- Olympic Coliseum f --/<3\--

Go through the southwest doors two times to reach Olympic Coliseum a. To the
southeast is the battle with the world's boss.

                           !<3!      Hades      !<3!
                         \\-------------------------//

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Flame Point:  Hades' standard, short range attack.

Flame Swipe:  Two-handed, overhand flame attack. 

Firaga Ball:  Hades throws a Meteor at you. Dodge it by staying close to 
              Hades. It is actually more accurate when Sora is at a distance.

Temper Flare: Hades bursts into flames and quickly approaches and attacks 
              Sora. Gives him 30 Berserk attacks.

Flame Hands:  Hades floats at Sora with his hands in flames.

   |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Cure, Blizzardx2, 0 Card

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

Hades absorbs Fire magic so calling Donald or using Fire magic will heal him.

If Blue Oyster Cult taught us anything, it's not to fear the reaper. Hades is
not very hard. Most of his attacks are short range, except for Firaga Ball
which is a pretty good ranged attack. Try to stay at a short-to-medium range
distance away from him. After Hades runs through a few Decks, he has to spend
a good amount of time reloading his Deck. This is a good time to hit him with
attacks and Blizzard, which works well against him, or Cure yourself.

Stay on the move and be quick with your Dodge Rolls and Zero Cards and you
will be fine. It helps if you have two Cure Cards in case he breaks one of
them while you are healing. Defeating Hades gets you a Hades Card.

     --/<3\-- Olympic Coliseum i --/<3\--

Beating Hades nets you his Card and shortly after Cloud gives you his Card. Go
to the northeast to exit the world.

   |<3| Cloud |<3|

"Cloud unleashes two successive sword attacks. Stock 3 cards to use
Omnislash."

Acquired: Olympic Coliseum Key to Truth room

I find this an excellent Card. Using one Cloud gets you two slashes, two
Clouds gets you three, and three Clouds gets you Omnislash. Like most summons,
the Card is a bit slow to develop but it deals good damage, the animation is
satisfying, and it works well against immobile targets.

The group's memories seem to be fading and not even Jimini's journal can
remind them of what happened. This castle... and who is that girl who is show
drawing? The longer they are in the castle the more they forget.

On a side note you might be wondering what some of the Map Cards do or what
that golden 'P' is that rarely appears when you defeat Heartless. For more on
Map Cards go to section five. That section will help you decide which rooms
you want to create. The P is a premium token. Pick it up and win the battle
and you will have the chance to give a premium bonus to one of your Cards.
Your current deck, minus the Cards that are already premium, will spin quickly
around. Time the revolutions and hit A when you want to stop. The Card that is
selected has the chance to become premium. Hit A to confirm it or B to cancel.

Certain Map Cards, like the Premium and White Room, give you a much better
chance of getting premium badges.

Premium Cards are a double edged sword though. The CP required to equip them
is greatly reduced but they can not be reloaded in battle, unless your only
remaing Keyblade Card is premium. Think clearly about which of your magic and
attack Cards you want to become premium.

The Shadow Heartless are black with yellow eyes. They hurt you with their
claws, but are not strong or fast. They often come in packs or with other more
challenging Heartless. Physical attacks and magic spells work well against
them.

   |<3| Search Ghost |<3|

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Boogie rolls dice. The different rolls lead to different attacks.

   Summons Heartless

   Large circular razor bounces through the screen.

   Heals himself

   Metal blades drop from the ceiling and bounce up and down

   |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

Boogie's Dice can be attacked. When the gates lower you can jump up to the
higher level and attack Boogie's body.

   |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Hi-Potion, Cure, Keyblade Cards greater than 7 (as many as you have), Cloud,

Stike Impact and Sliding Dash break the dice well. Try to make sure that the
Card you lose from performing the sleight is low.

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

Breaking any of the three dice stops the attack from occuring. Preventing the
dice from triggering their attacks lowers the gate one notch. When the gate
lowers three notches and disappears from sight you can jump up to Boogie's
level and attack him. Breaking dice also can net you Friend Cards. The Mickey
Card instantly lowers the gates. It is a nice Card to have.

Breaking Dice sounds easy right? It is when you have the right Cards. Oogie's
dice attack is always a 7 Card. Use Cards higher than that or stock Cards to
break the dice.

Save the Mickey Card for when you have a stockpile of good attack Cards saved
up. You have longer to attack him when you use the Mickey Card then when you
lower the gate the other way. This is the key time to hit him and he will not
defend himself while you are up there.

When your Keyblade Cards start to dwindle use your Hi-Potion. You will always
have at least one Keyblade Card so if you get desperate start stocks with that
one remaining Card followed by two powerful Magic Cards. That way you can keep
reloading those Cards. Defeating Boogie nets you the Oogie Boogie Card.

A quick and easy way to get more quality Cards is to break and jump on stuff
in each of the worlds. I note what there is to break and jump on in each of
the world's sections. You do not even have to fight the Heartless in the room.
Just run back and forth between the rooms, dodging Heartless or using Cards
that incapacitate them. This also allows you to collect Moogle Points to
purchase more Cards.

You are probably wondering how you should craft your Deck Chain. It is up to
you. I recommend always having a Hi-Potion and a Cure or two. I also prefer to
have two of one type of Magic Card instead of one of each. I would rather cast
Blizzara than Fire and Blizzard.

The Shadow Heartless are black with yellow eyes. They hurt you with their
claws, but are not strong or fast. They often come in packs or with other more
challenging Heartless. Physical attacks and magic spells work well against
them.

   |<3| Soldier |<3|

Armored Heartless. Have increased HP and attack power. Their best attack is
a spinning leap where they hurl themselves at their target.

   |<3| Large Body |<3|

Huge Heartless with a fat belly. Take little damage to the front but are
vulnerable to attacks from behind and magic. Draw an attack and Dodge Roll to
get behind them. When it is travelling with help, try to eliminate the other
Heartless first.

   |<3| Red Nocturne |<3|

Flying Heartless that attacks with Fire magic. Weak to Blizzard, healed by
Fire.

   |<3| Creep Plant |<3|

Rooted plant with strong close range attack and distance root attack. Magic
and Goofy work well as they cannot avoid those attacks.

   |<3| Loudness |<3|

Short with a big horn snout. Not very capable of hurting you, but they can
call other Heartless into to battle. If you hang back too much and do not
attack them they will call for more help.

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

The Red Trump attack with spears, which have good range, and the Black Trump
attack with axes.

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

This battle is about the same difficulty as a random battle against Heartless.
The Trump are capable of dealing hefty damage if you allow them to surround
you and hit you multiple times. Try to keep them on one side of you in case
you have to run. Cloud and Blizzard work well.

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Fire Ball:  Trick Master crosses his torches and shoots a Fire Ball with some
            tracking capability. As long as you are moving, the ball will not
            hit you.

March:      Trick Master walks across the screen, trying to stamp Sora
            underfoot. If Sora is at the bottom of the screen, he will walk by
            you without hurting you.

Floor Slap: Crashes both hands against the floor, causing damage to Sora if
            he is not airborne. Time your Jump to avoid it.

Windup:     Crouches and brings his arms backwards. He gathers his power to
            perform and two arm uppercut, damaging anyone standing nearby.

   |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

Damage Trick Master by striking him in his stomach area.

   |<3| Cards to Equip |<3|

Keyblade, Hi-Potion 

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

None of his attacks are that hard to avoid or particularly powerful. When you
see him cross his torches, start moving to avoid the upcoming fire ball. Jump
to reach his torso and then attack. Sliding Dash and abilities that do not
have upwards capabilities, like Blizzard, will not hurt him. He is susceptible
to Fire damage.

At times a Mickey Card will drop down. When you use it a table will appear on
the middle of the battlefield. The table allows you to be horizontally even
with Trick Master's belly. This allows you to use Blizzard, Cloud and similar
horizontal abilities to damage him. The table only lasts for a short while so
make sure you have some good Cards ready to use when you use the Mickey Card.

Aero Opera, Green Requiem, Air Soldier, Bandit, Fat Bandit

   |<3| Aero Opera |<3|

The Thunder equivalent of Blue Rhapsody and Red Nocturne. Deals Thunder damage
and absorbs Thunder.

   |<3| Green Requiem |<3|

Flying Heartless that have very weak attacks but often heal themselves and
other Heartless. Using magic on them leads them to recover life. Keyblade
attacks and physical Summons work well.

   |<3| Air Soldier |<3|

Weak Heartless with not much HP or offensive power.

   |<3| Bandit |<3|

Turban wearing Heartless with a scimitar. Capable of dealing decent damage,
watch out for this unit's slashing charge attack.

   |<3| Fat Bandit |<3|

Similar to a Large Body, Fat Bandit's block physical attacks from the front
and take extra damage from the back. Fat Bandits also have a Fire attack which
they spit from their mouth and a wobbling, arm swinging charge attack. Use
Dodge Roll to get behind them and attack. Magic and Summons work well against
them as they are not particularly mobile. 

     --/<3\-- Agrabah a --/<3\--

Aladin, or 'Al' as Genie likes to call him, joins you as an ally. Aladin
charges across the battlefield swinging his scimitar.

   |<3| Aladdin |<3|

"Aladdin swings his sword at the enemy repeatedly. Stock more than one to
power up Aladdin's attack."

Home World: Agrabah

Al follows in Sora's footsteps, slashing at the enemies that Sora directs
himtowards. Any amount of Aladding Cards is good but two or three make Al
great.


     --/<3\-- Agrabah f --/<3\--

Defeating the Heartless in this story battle room gets you an Ether Card.
Ether is like Potion except it refills Magic Deck Cards instead of Keyblade
Deck Cards to your Deck Chain.

                         \\-------------------------//

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Boulder:  Jafar grabs a large rock and throws it at Sora. Stand stationary 
          until Jafar releases it and then quickly Dodge Roll out of the way.

Punch:    Jafar punches the nearest stone platform. Slow attack that is easy 
          to dodge.

Eye Beam: Jafar shoots painful magic out of his eye. Hard to dodge and it
          can deal decent damage. Try to break this attack when you can not
          dodge it.

   |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

Get Jafar back into that lamp! Attack Iago, the bird flying up above, to get
the lamp and defeat Jafar.

   |<3| Cards to and Sleights to Use |<3|

Keyblade, Hi-Potion, Cure 

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

There are three section of the floor that Sora can stand on. Throughout the
fight they will lower and raise themselves to different levels. Try to stay as
high as possible so that you can jump off of the stone at its peak and attack
Iago. Defeating the bird will win you the battle.

Physical attacks work the best. I recommend unequipping your Magic, except
Cure, and equipping Keyblade Cards and Hi-Potion. Dodge Roll to avoid Jafar's
projectiles and Eye Beams. His Eye Beam is hhis only decent attack. His punch
requires you to be close to him and stationary and the Meteor can be Dodge
Rolled to avoid. Even if it lands on you while you are rolling it will not
hurt you. If the terrain is flat and Jafar starts his Eye Beam attack, try to
break it.

Try to stay on the middle stone platform when you are not attacking. Sometimes
the stones will shift and you will be caught isolated on one stone with no
where to run to as Jafar attacks you.

     --/<3\-- Agrabah k --/<3\--

After defeating Jafar, Sora gets the Genie Summon Card.

If you have Sleights you like to use, organize your deck to make it easier to
access them. For example if you like Blitz rearrange the first three Cards in
you deck to satisfy the requirement. That way you can start out any battle by
quickly hitting L + R four times and using Blitz or cycle your deck to the
right and save the sleight for later.

Shadow, Large Body, Green Requiem, Yellow Rhapsody, Air Soldier,

   |<3| Shadow |<3|

The Shadow Heartless are black with yellow eyes. They hurt you with their
claws, but are not strong or fast. They often come in packs or with other more
challenging Heartless. Physical attacks and magic spells work well against
them.

   |<3| Large Body |<3|

Huge Heartless with a fat belly. Take little damage to the front but are
vulnerable to attacks from behind and magic. Draw an attack and Dodge Roll to
get behind them. When it is travelling with help, try to eliminate the other
Heartless first.

   |<3| Aero Opera |<3|

The Thunder equivalent of Blue Rhapsody and Red Nocturne. Deals Thunder damage
and absorbs Thunder.

   |<3| Green Requiem |<3|

Flying Heartless that have very weak attacks but often heal themselves and
other Heartless. Using magic on them leads them to recover life. Keyblade
attacks and physical Summons work well.

   |<3| Air Soldier |<3|

Weak Heartless with not much HP or offensive power.

   |<3| Search Ghost |<3|

Flying enemy that can fade in and out of battle. Its attack drains life from
you to restore its own.

   |<3| Tornado Step |<3|

Moves quickly across the screen. Uses a spinning attack that propels it from
one end of the battlefield to the other.


     --/<3\-- Monstro --/<3\--

   |<3| Aqua Splash |<3|

"Spray melted ice at the enemy over a period of time, inflicting ice damage."
Requires: - Blizzard
          - Fire

Acquired: Monstro Treasure Room

So Pinnochio got eaten, eh? Ug now you have to fight this thing in pools of
digestive acid.

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Hand Slap: Joins his hands together over its head and slams them in the
           ground in front of it. Causes damage and makes the platforms
           smaller.

Swing:     Plants its arms into the ground and swings its body across the 
           screen and back to its original position.

Acid Ball: Shoots a ball of green acid at you. Stand still and then quickly
           Dodge Roll when it comes flying at you.

   |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

Attack it all over its body. When it tilts its head back, hit it in the open
area to get a Mickey Card.

   |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Fire, Cloud, Cure, Hi-Potion, Keyblade

Blitz is a useful Sleight against this guy.

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

This guy can be tricky. He requires patience and planning. Any Card you use
while standing in the green acid will fail before you get to use it. Make sure
you are standing on top of one of the circular platforms before using Cards.
After hitting it with Fire or a powerful attack, he will tilt his head back.
At this time hit him in the mouth for a Mickey Card. Using a Mickey Card
restores the circular platforms to their largest circumference.

It is hard to dodge many of his attacks so the onus is on you to attack him
correctly. Store Keyblade combos then launch yourself in the air and release
them to deal decent damage. Standing on a platform for too long will cause it
to sink into the acid temporarily.


                         //-------------------------\\
                           !<3!     Monstro     !<3!
                         \\-------------------------//

Monstro is a strange boss. Your goal is to get passed out of Monstro's bowels
and to do so you have to defeat many Shadow Heartless in a short amount of
time. You can escape from the battle at any time by going to either side of
the screen and running towards it. You have as many chances as you want so if
you start to get low on Cards and no longer have a chance at filling up the
bar then run away. When you run away you can choose to fight the battle again
immediately or go back to another area of the map.

Defeating Shadows makes the bar fill up with blue. Going a few seconds without
vanquishing Shadows turns the bar red and it begins to recede. Stock up your
Deck Chain with Cards that damage areas and that you are comfortable with.
Single area attack spells like Fire and Cards that are not needed like Cure
and defensive Enemy Cards.

Once the bar fills up it will start flashing yellow. Kill the remaining
Heartless to finish the battle. You will get the Dumbo Summon Card as a reward.

   |<3| Cards and Sleight to Use |<3|

Cloud, Simba, Blizzaga, Hi-Potion, Keyblade

Sonic Blade and Blitz work well.

     --/<3\-- Monstro l --/<3\--

Reorganize your Deck Chain (if you changed it for Monstro) and save.

Rakshi is not very powerful, but she is fast. The strategy I use is dull, but
it works. Run around for the a little bit and dodge her attacks. Eventually
she will burn through her Deck and have to recharge all the way up to 3 every
time she needs more Cards. That is a great time to attack her. It is much
easier to hit her when she is reloading and longer reload times gives you more
time to heal.

Her Thunder spells requires her to stand still and has a small build up to it.
That will allow you to get close to her before she unleashes it. Try breaking
her attack and then countering with one of your own.

Defeating Rakshi gets you the Thunder Magic Card.

That finishes the first ring of worlds. Four new worlds are opened up. The
same thing concerning maps holds for this set of worlds as the previous set.
The map of each world is not set, but rather it is determined by the floor.
You choose which world becomes each floor. It is up to you to choose which
world you want to do. You can still find the sections useful no matter what
order you choose.

   |<3| Search Ghost |<3|

Flying enemy that can fade in and out of battle. Its attack drains life from
you to restore its own.

   |<3| Sea Neon |<3|

Low HP, low strength Heartless. Basically the underwater equivalent of a
Shadow.

   |<3| Screwdriver |<3|

Has a spear and is healed by Thunder. His attack is powerful so try to be at
a distance when you recharge your Deck Cards.

   |<3| Aqua Tank |<3|

Large Heartless that attacks with Thunder and is healed by Thunder. Its lack
of mobility makes it vulnerable to Summon Cards.

   |<3| Dark Ball |<3|

Flying Heartless with some annoying attacks. Can charge at you from a distance
or quickly bounce around in a small area.

   |<3| Tornado Step |<3|

Moves quickly across the screen. Uses a spinning attack that propels it from
one end of the battlefield to the other.


     --/<3\-- Atlantica --/<3\--

The Treasure Room in Atlantica contains Quake.

   |<3| Quake |<3|

Ariel joins your party. When summoned she swims horizontally across the

"Ariel whirls across the field, striking many enemies. Stock more than one to

Ariel darts across the screen or if using multiple Ariel Cards, she will move
across the screen repeatedly.

                         \\--------------------------//

They keep cutting more and more out of the Little Mermaid story. Next time let
us just have Ursula start with the Trident and be done with it.

 |<3| Attacks |<3|

Bolt:     A bolt of lightning drops from above. Keep Sora moving and active to
          avoid it.

Bubbles:  Bubbles with tracking capabilities are fired. If one of them hits
          Sora they inflict damage and cause you to become confused, making
          your directional controls backwards.

Scream:   Ursual opens her mouth and unleashes a huge continuous stream of
          energy. This attack is capable of killing you if you are at full
          life. The best way to be on the other side of it when she unleashes
          it. Before she unleashes it she will move her mouth in a distinctive
          way and say something. Get to the other side of her face quickly to
          avoid it.


 |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

To kill Ursula you have to strike her face. To get to her face you have to
take out one of her tentacles. That gives you a short time period to strike
her face before the tentacle comes back. You can also bring Ursula's face down
to your level by using a Mickey Card, that you get by defeating tentacles.

 |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Goofy, Ariel, Fire, Blizzard, Dumbo, and Cloud are good for dispatching the
tentacles. Thunder and Keyblade Cards are good for hitting Ursula's face when
it is up high.

Cure and Hi Potion as always

Air Soldier

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

Pick a tentacle and defeat it. Then go directly after Ursula's face. Make sure
to keep moving or her Bolt attack will hurt you greatly. Eventually you will
get a Mickey Card and when you do make sure you have your most powerful Cards
ready to use. Using a Mickey Card brings Ursula's face down to your level and
leaves you capable of inflicting major damage on her. Try to be as aggressive
as possible. The best defense from her attacks is to break them before they
are unleashed.

Her Bubbles atttack will leave you confused if it hits you. While confused
your controls will be backwards, up will move you down etc. It only lasts for
a little bit so run around until it wears off. Also when reloading your Deck
Chain do not stand in one place too long or her attacks will tear you a new
one.

After damaging her to a certain extent she will begin to use her Scream attack
more and more. Try to stay centered underneath her chin and watch her face for
indications that the Scream attack is going to be unleashed. This battle can
last for a while so it is better not to stock-unless the first Card is a
Friend Card.

Jump Attack:   Jumps into the air and lands swings his sword.

One-Two Slash: Two strike attack that leaves Sora stunned and unable to move
               for a few seconds.

Riku has the Incrementor Enemy Card ability.

 |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Keyblade, Simba, Cloud, Cure, Hi-Potion

Blitz, Sonic Blade

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

You can dodge around for a while until Riku burns through his Deck and has to
recharge to 3 every time he needs more Cards. That strategy is not really
needed though as Riku does not dodge that well and his attacks are not very
strong. When Riku reloads, attack him as you would Cloud. Anticipate that as
you swing your Keyblade at Riku, he is going to try to jump over you so
predict that and swing while you jump at him.

Riku does not save up cards to use as a combo so it is hard to know which one
of his attacks is coming next. He also is very agressive and likes to charge
at Sora. Use those things to your advantage. Get him to come at you and then
simultaneously break his cards and unleash a combo of your own. 

Defeat Riku to get the Aero Magic Spell Card.

If you plan on leveling up or know that you will need some more Map Cards to
complete this world, fight as many Heartless as you need to before going to
the Key of Guidance Room. Peter Pan will temporarily leave your group in that
room. Battles are slightly easier with Peter in your group and it is also good
to get used to seeing what Peter can do.

                        \\--------------------------//

 |<3| Attacks |<3|

Slash:   Standard attack, Hook swings his sword.

Present: Hook throws an explosive at Sora that explodes when it lands.

Bouncing Present: Present that bounces on the deck a few times before
                  exploding.

Rush & Present:   Hook combines three cards and then throws a gift after gift
                  at Sora. Hook does not have much range on these throws so
                  create a little distance from him to dodge it.

Combo & Present:  Hook combines three cards and starts a string of quick sword
                  slashes. The last strike sends Sora into the air while Hook
                  leaves three presents for Sora to land on.

Hook has the Pirate Enemy Card that gives him the Second Chance ability.

 |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

0 Cards, Cure, Hi-Potion, Thunder, Aero

Air Soldier

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

Be aware of the tilting deck. It can be hard to run on when going uphill. Try
not to get stuck against the wall on the low side of the deck; especially when
Hook is prepared to use a combo attack. Hook has two very strong attacks and
they are capable of quickly taking most of your life. It is too risky to wait
for Hook to run out of Deck Cards and get him when he reloads so try to take
the fight to him.

When you have to run and recharge make sure the ship deck is tilting in your
favor. If you do get caught in a position where one of his combos is going to
hurt you, use a 0 Card. Try to combine a few cards to make Aerora or Aeraga.
That way if Hook gets too close you can break him and damage him.

Defeat Hook to get the Hook Support Card and Tinkerbell Summon Card.

               for a few seconds.

Dark Firaga:   Shoots a Fire ball of dark energy at you.

Riku has the Shadow Enemy Card which has the Incremenator ability.

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

He is pretty much the same as the Riku you fought on the floor below. The main
difference is that this time he has Dark Firaga, an attack that his hard to
dodge. It is not that powerful so either break it or absorb the damage.

Before preceeding to the next floor Sora recieves the Warpinator ability.

100 Acre Woods is an atypical world. You do not fight Heartless and the usual
world structure is ignored. However there is a distinct map for Floor 9 and if
you choose the worlds in a different order than I have in this FAQ you might
find the map useful. Once again this map and speed walkthrough is only useful
if you have chosen Hollow Bastion, Neverland or Atlantica as your Floor 9.

Okay now on to 100 Acre Woods. Sora and Pooh are looking for their friends.
Pooh follows where Sora is going. To call Pooh to you hit R. Lead Pooh through
the various obstacles and lead him to honey when his honey meter starts to
dwindle. Strike the bushes that line the edge of the road for Moogle points.
To leave this world without completing it go to the northwest.

Bring Pooh to the southeast so he can talk to Piglet. He teaches you the
Confuse ability.

As you proceed along the path watch out for butterflies, which distract Pooh;
holes in the ground; and ballongs. Sora can strike the balloons to send them
into the air.

At the end of the world Sora recieves the Bambi Summon Card.

     --/<3\-- Hollow Bastion --/<3\--

The Treasure Room in Hollow Bastion contains the Mushu Summon Card.

The Wyvern Enemy Card is a nice Card to have. When you reload it keeps the
number from increasing for a few uses. I am not saying that should go way out
of your way to get it, but if you have to level or get more Map Cards creating
a room that increases your chances of getting an Enemy Card (Teeming Darkness,
Almighty Darkness, Looming Darkness) is not such a bad idea.

     --/<3\-- Hollow Bastion i --/<3\--

   |<3| Beast |<3|

"The Beast mows down anyone in Sora's path. Stock more than one to power up
Beast's attack."

Home World: Hollow Bastion
Ability: Ferocious Lunge

Beast charges across the screen, hurting any enemy in his path multiple times.

                            !<3!  Maleficent  !<3!
                         \\------------------------//

 |<3| Attacks |<3|

Bite:  Maleficent bites you

Swipe: Maleficent swipes at you with her paw

Flame: Maleficent leaves green flames at the ground. The flames will hurt you
       if you touch them and are there to block you part the her head.
       Destroy them by attacking them. 

Stomp: Maleficents best attack. She stomps the ground, causing damage to Sora
       if he is not airborne. Tough to dodge because often Maleficent's claw
       will be off of the screen. This will also cause the flames to be sent
       at you.

 |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

Attack Maleficent in her head.

 |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

8 and 9 Keyblade Cards, Simba, Cure, Hi-Potion,

Omnislash, Thundaga, Aeraga, Blizzaga

Oogie Boogie, Wyvern

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

I could call Maleficent hard, but that is not really fair to all the truly
hard video game bosses. Cheap is more accurate. Maleficent's most dangerous
attack cannot even be seen when you are standing on the left side of the
screen. Her stomp hits you no matter where you are and it is hard to get out
of it once she hits you with it once. Maleficent can also raise up her head,
making it so that you cannot reach her with almost all of your attacks unless
you get the Mickey Card (get the Mickey Card by destroying the green flames).
The hit detection on her head is terrible, at least for you.

Standing on the stone rings that the Mickey Card summons protects you from the
stomp attack. Try to be on top of those when possible, but make sure you have
some high numbered Cards to protect against her Bite attack. Maleficent can be
broken easily and that will bring her head down to an easier place to attack.

Use the Oogie Boogie if your life starts to run low and use that Wyvern Card
when you need an instant reload. Try to keep her paw in range and unleash your
best level three attacks until you get a Mickey Card. From there jump onto the
stones and start hacking away. Try to keep a couple of Cures on hand for when
you need them.

 |<3| Attacks |<3|

Slash:  Vexen swipes at you with his shield. Try to draw this attack and get
        behind him either by running, which is easily done, or a dodge roll.

Ice:     Shoots a Blizzard like spell at you.

Freeze:  Vexen stores up three Cards and tries to trap Sora in a large piece
         of ice. As long as you are moving you will dodge this attack.

Vexen has the Blue Rhapsody Enemy Card which boosts his ice damage.

 |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

Leonhart, Cloud

Blitz (when he is reloading), Sonic Blade, Thundaga, Firaga, Aeraga, Omnislash 


 |<3| Strategy |<3|

Vixen absorbs ice damage so Blizzard, Donald, Dumbo, and other ice damage
attacks should not be used. He also guard physical attacks from his front.
Attack him from behind by getting him while he floats across the screen or by
drawing one of his standard attacks and quickly taking his rear. Another good
time to attack him is right after his Cards for Freeze begin to go off the
screen. It is easy to dodge Freeze and get behind him before he begins to move
again. That is a good time to use a Cloud. Surprisingly enough, Vexen runs
away after the battle. Ah well, at least he left a Mega-Ether.

Ice Needles: Vexen stores three Cards and unleashes a string of stalagmites
             which chase after Sora. Try to dodge it, but if you are low on
             life break this attack.

Vexen has the Auto Life ability which restores a portion of his HP when you
first drain all his life.

 |<3| Cards and Sleights to Use |<3|

0 Cards, 8 and 9 Keyblade Cards, Leonhart, Hi-Potion, Mega Ether, Cure

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

Vixen absorbs ice damage so Blizzard, Donald, Dumbo, and other ice damage
attacks should not be used. He also guard physical attacks from his front, but
this time he counters with one of his own. Attack him from behind by getting
him while he floats across the screen or by drawing one of his standard
attacks and quickly taking his rear. Another good time to attack him is right
after his Cards for Freeze begin to go off the screen. It is easy to dodge
Freeze and get behind him before he begins to move again.

Much of that is what I wrote for the first Vexen battle. So what is different?
Now Vexen attacks faster and his Ice Needles is a tough attack to dodge. Try
to make quick turns and spend most of your time running across the screen, not
up and down it. The Ice Needles can only catch up to you when you turn or
falter so minimize your turning time. Break the Ice Needles with a 0 Card when
you have to. Try not to get trapped at the bottom of the screen when Vexen is
nearby and if he gets too close Dodge Roll past him.

Note that Vexen has the Auto Life ability, which gives him a portion of his HP
back once when you drain his life.

Jump Attack:   Jumps into the air and lands swings his sword.

One-Two Slash: Two strike attack that leaves Sora stunned and unable to move
               for a few seconds.

Dark Firaga:   Shoots a Fire ball of dark energy at you. To dodge it get to
               the other side of Riku just as he fires it. Picture Dark
               Firaga's lock on zone like this < with Riku at the point. If
               you are in front of him, the ball is going to hit you, but
               on his sides the tracking cannot keep up with you.

Riku has the Shadow Enemy Card which has the Incremenator ability.

Blitz, Sonic Blade, Ars Arcanum, Thundaga, Omnislash

He is pretty much the same as the Riku you fought the second time only more
agressive and stronger. Fight him the same way you did before, using your good
sleights only this time pay more attention to your HP bar as his attacks will
drain it faster.

Defeating Riku gets you a Mega Potion.

Blast Punch:  Punches the ground, causing damage around where he punches. The

Shadow Punch: Darkside punches the ground and summons two Shadow Heartless.
              Do not worry about the Shadows as they will disappear shortly.

Homing Energy: Darkside releases a homing energy ball from his chest area.
               When he is sufficiently wounded he will fire multiple energy
               balls.

Energy Raid:   Darkside sends a ball of energy into the air that rains down
               upon Sora.

Darkside is vulnerable in his torso area. When he punches the ground you can

Darkside is very easy. Equip three 0 Cards and you will not even have to use
any stock abilities to beat him. Use the 0 Cards when he does one of his
energy ball attacks and attack his hand and torso when it presents itself.
Reload when you run out of 0 Cards.

The only strategy I have so far is a bit specialized. Eventually I will come
back to it, sometime this month I hope, and being more detailed with my
remaining boss strategies. In the meantime this Deck Chain will be able to get
you through the rest of the game.

This deck is almost all Keyblades. It emphasizes the abilities Sonic Blade and
Blitz. In battle it is very easy to execute. Simply stock up the first three
Cards and unleash the ability. Then reload and repeat. Reload again and do
what you can with the remaining Cards and then use a Mega Potion. Run through
your abilities, reload and run through them again if necessary. Riku and
Larxene do not stand a chance.

Fill the rest of your Deck with a couple of Cures and an Oogie Boogie and
Vexen if you have the room. So here is the order and number of the Keyblades
that you need. If you do not have these type of Keyblades buy some more at a
Moogle Shop. This takes about 700 CP. Any of these Cards can be premium.

7-8-6 Attack Cards of different type |The 8, 6 and next 6 of different type
7-6-9 Attack Cards of different type |The 9 and next 8, 9 of different type
6-8-9 Attack Cards of different type 
5-6-9 Attack Cards of different type |The 6, 9 and next 6 of different type
5-6-9 Attack Cards of different type |The 9, and next 2, 4 of different type
6-2-4 Attack Cards of different type
4-5-6 Attack Cards of different type |The 5, 6 and next 5 of different type
5-4-5 Attack Cards of different type

That set up will give you 5 Sonic Blades and 3 Blitzes. Reload and you get 3
more Sonic Blades and 2 more Blitzes. Use a Hi-Potion or Mega Potion to reset
the deck. From here on out simply stock and use the abilities. Cure yourself

               on his sides the tracking cannot keep up with you.

Riku has the Shadow Enemy Card which has the Incremenator ability.

Key of Beginnings


The only strategy I have so far is a bit specialized. Eventually I will come
back to it, sometime this month I hope, and being more detailed with my
remaining boss strategies. In the meantime this Deck Chain will be able to get
you through the rest of the game.

This deck is almost all Keyblades. It emphasizes the abilities Sonic Blade and
Blitz. In battle it is very easy to execute. Simply stock up the first three
Cards and unleash the ability. Then reload and repeat. Reload again and do
what you can with the remaining Cards and then use a Mega Potion. Run through
your abilities, reload and run through them again if necessary.

Fill the rest of your Deck with a couple of Cures and an Oogie Boogie and
Vexen if you have the room. So here is the order and number of the Keyblades
that you need. If you do not have these type of Keyblades buy some more at a
Moogle Shop. This takes about 700 CP. Any of these Cards can be premium.

7-8-6 Attack Cards of different type |The 8, 6 and next 6 of different type
7-6-9 Attack Cards of different type |The 9 and next 8, 9 of different type
6-8-9 Attack Cards of different type 
5-6-9 Attack Cards of different type |The 6, 9 and next 6 of different type
5-6-9 Attack Cards of different type |The 9, and next 2, 4 of different type
6-2-4 Attack Cards of different type
4-5-6 Attack Cards of different type |The 5, 6 and next 5 of different type
5-4-5 Attack Cards of different type

That set up will give you 5 Sonic Blades and 3 Blitzes. Reload and you get 3
more Sonic Blades and 2 more Blitzes. Use a Hi-Potion or Mega Potion to reset
the deck. From here on out simply stock and use the abilities. Cure yourself
and activate Oogie Boogie and Vexen when needed.

If you can fit in the Riku Card and use it after your first reload. That will
make it so you do not have to use a Hi-Potion until you have gone through the
Cards in your second reload.

                         //------------------------\\
                            !<3!     Axel     !<3!

                         \\------------------------//

 |<3| Attacks |<3|


 |<3| Cards and Sleights Use |<3|


 |<3| Strategy |<3|


The deck strategy should work for the above two but this form of Marluxia is a
bit different.

                         //------------------------\\
                            !<3!   Marluxia   !<3!
                         \\------------------------//

Bring in some high number Cures and high number Keyblade Cards.

First take out his two legs. Sonic Attack works well. Then take out his
rejuvenated leg. That leads to his second form.

Now you have to attack Marluxia himself. I would caution against using
sleights as this is a lengty fight and they are not really needed. His only
major attack that hurts you is the flying daggers that surround him. When he
charges his machine at you break him and jump on his back. Attack him until he
starts going too fast or the daggers become too much of a nuisance and then
jump off the back and Cure yourself.

When Marluxia is hovering in the air with his face out of the screen that
means he is about to drop on you. As long as you jump right before he lands
and are in the air then you will not take any damage.

The other time when you can hurt Marluxia is when he is summoning his daggers
at you. Break any of his attacks and a short window will open up when you can
attack him. Use your high Keyblade Cards here and Cure when necessary.














Thank you for reading this Walkthrough, I promise to have improve upon it
shortly.

         |<3|~|<3| YELLOW CARDS |<3|~|<3|
         _________              _________

Yellow Cards allow you to progress through the world's story and open up the
Treasure Room.


   |<3| Card of Beginnings |<3|

"A room where untold stories unfold."
Used to open up the world's first story door.


   |<3| Key of Guidance |<3|

"A room where untold stories unfold."
Used to open up the world's second story door.


   |<3| Key to Truth |<3|

"A room where untold stories unfold."
Unlocks the world's third story door, which oftens has the world's boss inside
of it. Make sure you are prepared before opening that room.


   |<3| Key to Rewards |<3|

"A room containing special treasure."
Opens the treasure room in any map.

         |<3|~|<3| RED CARDS |<3|~|<3|
         _________              _________

Red Cards cause different types of Heartless to appear.


   |<3| Tranquil Darkness |<3|

"A room where few Heartless appear."
Five Heartless will appear in this room. You cannot get Moogle Points, HP
Points, or Cards in this room.


   |<3| Teeming Darkness |<3|

"A room where many Heartless appear. Enemies are more likely to drop enemy
cards."
Eight Heartless will appear in this room.


   |<3| Feeble Darkness |<3|

"A room where Heartless with weak cards appear."
Five Heartless will appear in this room.


   |<3| Almighty Darkness |<3|

"A room where Heartless with strong cards appear. Enemies are more likely to
drop enemy cards."


   |<3| Sleeping Darkness |<3|

"A room where Heartless are drowsy and easy to ambush."
None of the Heartless in this room move, allowing you to start every battle
with a Keyblade strike. Three Heartless appear.


   |<3| Looming Darkness |<3|

"A room where Heartless attack relentlessly. Enemies are more likely to drop
enemy Cards."


   |<3| Premium Room |<3|

"A room where victory often leads to Premium Bonuses."

The golden P that sometimes appears in battle is a premium token. Pick it up
and win the battle and you will have the chance to give a premium bonus to one
of your Cards. Your current deck, minus the Cards that are already premium,
will spin quickly around. Time the revolutions and hit A when you want to
stop. The Card that is selected has the chance to become premium. Hit A to
confirm it or B to cancel.

Certain Map Cards, like the Premium and White Room, give you a much better
chance of getting premium badges.

Premium Cards are a double edged sword though. The CP required to equip them
is greatly reduced but they can not be reloaded in battle, unless your only
remaing Keyblade Card is premium. Think clearly about which of your magic and
attack Cards you want to become premium.


   |<3| White Room |<3|

"A room where only White Mushrooms appear. But what happens when you help them
out?"

White Mushrooms ask you to cast magic on them by doing certain things on the
battlefield. Cast the correct spell three times and they will drop a Premium
badge.

When a White Mushroom wraps its arms around itself it is cold and wants you to
cast Fire on it. When he puts his arms in front of its face and fans itself it
is hot and wants you to cast Blizzard on it. When a darkened lightbulb appears
above its head it wants you to cast Thunder on it. Cast three spells on it to
get a Premium badge and some experience. If you attack it physically or cast
the wrong spell it will leave the battle.


   |<3| Black Room |<3|

"A room where only Black Funguses appear. But what happens when you defeat
one?"

Defeating them gets you blue Treasure Cards.

         _________              _________
         |<3|~|<3| GREEN  CARDS |<3|~|<3|
         _________              _________

Green rooms are good for gaining experience or getting more Map Cards. They
offer added benefits that make fighting battles a little easier..


   |<3| Martial Waking |<3|

"A room where attack cards are more effective."


   |<3| Sorcerous Waking |<3|

"A room where magic cards are more effective."


   |<3| Alchemic Waking |<3|

"A room where item cards are more effective."


   |<3| Meeting Ground |<3|

"A room where friend cards appears at the beginning of all battles (if your
friends are with you)."


   |<3| Stagnant Space |<3|

"A room where the Heartless move more slowly."


   |<3| Strong Initiative |<3|

"A room where striking first in the field does additional damage to
Heartless."


   |<3| Lasting Daze |<3|

"A room where striking first in the field stuns all Heartless that join the
battle."

         _________              _________
         |<3|~|<3|  BLUE CARDS  |<3|~|<3|
         _________              _________

Blue Cards vary greatly. Depending on which Card you select you can create a
room with no Heartless, a room with treasure, or a room with both.


   |<3| Calm Bounty |<3|

"A room containing treasure."
There are no Heartless in this room. Sometimes the treasure will be a new Card
and sometimes it will be an ability.


   |<3| Guarded Trove |<3|

"A room where treasure is guarded by Heartless."


   |<3| False Bounty |<3|

"A room where only one treasure chest is real. Opening the wrong chest
triggers a battle."


   |<3| Moment's Reprieve |<3|

"A room where you can save your progress."
Creates a Save Point in a room that does not have any Heartless in it.


   |<3| Mingling Worlds |<3|

"A room where anything could happen."


   |<3| Moogle Room |<3|

"A room where cards cann be traded with moogles at the Moogle Shop."

No Heartless will appear in this room.

Collect Moogle Points by breaking barrels, boxes, or whatever the world has to
offer. Spend those points at Moogle Shops to buy new Cards or sell old ones.
To get a Moogle Shop, open an unlocked door with a Moogle Map Card. Moogle Map
Cards are gotten the same way as regular Map Cards are, by defeating
Heartless. Simply creating a Moogle Shop and talking to the moogle gets you a
pack of Cards.

At the Moogle Shop the moogles on the left sells packs of Cards. Red are
Keyblade Cards, blue are magic Cards, and green are item Cards. You can also
buy packs that are a combination of all three. The Moogle on the right melts
Cards down and give you Moogle Points in exchange.

Keyblade Cards are red. when used Sora will swing his Keyblade.


   |<3| Kingdom Key |<3|

"The default weapon. Not very powerful, but reliable and easy to handle."

Attack: D          Stike: D+         Thrust: D+         Combo Finish: D+
Swing Speed: B     CB Recovery: B    Element: Physical  Break Recovery: B
Required CP: *

The basic Keyblade Card. Nothing flashy but it generally does have a low CP
value. Consider using them for Zero Cards (as the main thing to do is to break
your enemy, damage is not that important for Zero Cards), as the first card
for certain stocks and to fill in your CP when you have a little space. Over
the course of the game you will probably replace most of your Kingdom Key
Cards with better cards.

but I like to carry around multiple Cures for when the situation demands it.

                    ______________________________________ [5.4]

Blue Cards that cause Sora to leave the battlefield and be temporarily
replaced by the character on the Card. The game classifies them as Magic Cards
but I felt like making a distinction.


   |<3| Simba |<3|

"Simba lets out a mighty roar that deals damage to enemies in front of him.
Stock more than one and his roar will also stun enemies."

Acquired: In Traverse Town in the Key to Guidance room

An area damaging Card that is good to use at the beginning of the game. I feel
that it lacks power as the game progressed and as much as I like Simba I find
that there are better things to use my CP on. Once you get multiple Simba
Cards, give Simba a reexamination to see if his added stun bonus is something
you like to use. Stunning people is okay, but when using two Summon Cards
expecting the enemy to die is not unreasonable.

   |<3| Cloud |<3|

"Cloud unleashes two successive sword attacks. Stock 3 cards to use
Omnislash."

Acquired: Olympic Coliseum Key to Truth room

I find this an excellent Card. Using one Cloud gets you two slashes, two
Clouds gets you three, and three Clouds gets you Omnislash. Like most summons,
the Card is a bit slow to develop but it deals good damage, the animation is
satisfying, and it works well against immobile targets.

   |<3| Potion |<3|

"Quickload available attack cards with no charge time required. It does not
work on cards that cannot be reloaded."

The Card has a huge CP value and does not do that much. Hi-Potion becomes
availabe pretty quickly in the game and makes this Card obsolete.

   |<3| Hi-Potion |<3|

"Quickly reloads attack cards with no charge time required. Even normally

This Card found a quick and lasting home in my Deck Chain. The CP might be a
bit high but restoring a deck full of unreloadable Cards is a great thing.

The statements in the quotations marks are how the game describes the
Heartless. Below that I provide some peculiarities and strategies for fighting
them and some general strategies up here at the top.

Against Heartless that fly, breaking their attack will cause them to fall to
the ground for a moment.

Against Heartless that can guard from the front use sleights, Dodge Roll to
get behind them, or use certain Magic and Summon Cards.

                    _______________________________________

 
   |<3| Shadow |<3|

"A Heartless that pops up in all kinds of places. The Shadow ambles around and
attacks without warning. It is completely invulnerable while hiding within the
darkness."

The Shadow Heartless are black with yellow eyes. They hurt you with their
claws, but are not strong or fast. They often come in packs or with other more
challenging Heartless. Everything works well against them.


   |<3| Soldier |<3|

"A swift-moving Heartless that attacks its prey with a spin kick. Its
whimsical nature makes the Soldier a less than tenacious foe.

Armored Heartless. Have increased HP and attack power over the Shadow, but
that is not saying much. Their best attack is a spinning leap where they hurl
themselves at their target.


   |<3| Large Body |<3|

"A rotund Heartless. The Large Body repels frontal attacks with its jiggy
belly. Sometimes it throws its weight around and shakes the ground so jumping
is key."

Huge Heartless with a fat belly. Take little damage to the front but are
vulnerable to attacks from behind, sleights, and magic. Draw an attack and
Dodge Roll to get behind them.


   |<3| Red Nocturne |<3|

"A magic-wielding Heartless that drifts though the air. It's flighty and hard
to hit. The Red Nocturne (sic) attacks with Fire from a distance, and absorbs
Fire damage." 

Flying Heartless that attacks with Fire magic. Weak to Blizzard, healed by
Fire.


   |<3| Blue Rhapsody |<3|

"A magic-wielding Heartless that drifts through the air. The Blue Rhapsody
attacks with Blizzard once it's close enough and absorbs Blizzard damage."

Flying Heartless that attacks with Ice magic. Weak to Fire, healed by
Blizzard.


   |<3| Yello Opera |<3|

"A magic-wielding Heartless that drifts through the air. The Yellow Opera
hurls itself at enemies or attacks with Thunder. It absorbs all Thunder
damage."

The Thunder equivalent of Blue Rhapsody and Red Nocturne. Deals Thunder
damage, is healed by Thunder.


   |<3| Green Requiem |<3|

"A magic-wielding Heartless that drifts through the air. It doesn't attack,
but it can cast Cure to heal other Heartless. The Green Requiem is slow, but
its immunity to magic attacks makes it tough to squash.

Flying Heartless often heal themselves and other Heartless. Using magic on
them leads them to recover life. Keyblade attacks and physical Summons work
well.


   |<3| Powerwild |<3|

"A simian Heartless that excels at jumping. It has distructive instincts and
attacks with punches and sliding kicks."

Heartless that looks like a monkey. Has a quick, distanced attack but does not
have much life. Try to attack it quickly with area damage abilities and they
will not present much of a problem.


   |<3| Bouncywild |<3|

"A simian Heartless. It teases its enemies and throws banana peels from far
away. Be careful not to slip!"

Heartless that looks like a female monkey. Has a quick, distanced attack but
does not have much life. Try to attack it quickly. Watch out for the banana
peels that it drops.


   |<3| Air Soldier |<3|

"A winged Heartless. It swoops down onto its opponent's head, or slams into
them when they let their guard down."

Weak Heartless with not much HP or offensive power.


   |<3| Bandit |<3|

"A Heartless that mainly appears in Agrabah. The Bandit deftly wields the
scimitar it carries, and should be approachec cautiously.

Turban wearing Heartless. Capable of dealing decent damage, watch out for this
unit's slashing charge attack.


   |<3| Fat Bandit |<3|

"A Heartless that mainly appears in Agrabah. The Fat Bandit repels frontal
attacks with its jiggly belly and spits fireballs."

Similar to a Large Body, Fat Bandit's block physical attacks from the front
and take extra damage from the back. Fat Bandits also have a Fire attack which
they spit from their mouth and a wobbling, arm swinging charge attack. Use
Dodge Roll to get behind them and attack. Magic and Summons work well against
them as they are not particularly mobile. 


   |<3| Barrel Spider |<3|

"A gunpowder-packed barrel transformed by the darkness into a Heartless. The
Barrel Spider sets upon anyone foolish enough to think it's an ordinary
barrel."

Heartless that appears to be a barrel until you strike it. Uses a self
destruction attack that ends its own life but hurts Sora if he is standing
nearby. Take them out with long range attacks or quick stock attacks. Be fast
though because if you take your time executing an attack the Barrel will blow
itself up, preventing you from getting a Map Card.


   |<3| Search Ghost |<3|

"A spooky Heartless. The Search Ghost can warp out of harm's way and absorb
its enemies HP, making it a tough opponent."

Flying enemy that can fade in and out of battle. Its attack drains life from
you to restore its own. I still would not classify it as tough, because it is
not that agressive of a Heartless and is not very strong.


   |<3| Sea Neon |<3|

Low HP, low strength Heartless. Basically the underwater equivalent of a
Shadow.


   |<3| Screwdriver |<3|

Has a spear and is healed by Thunder. His attack is powerful so try to be at
a distance when you recharge your Deck Cards.


   |<3| Aqua Tank |<3|

Large Heartless that attacks with Thunder and is healed by Thunder. Its lack
of mobility makes it vulnerable to Summon Cards.


   |<3| Wight Knight |<3|

"A Heartless that calls Halloween Town its main haunt. The Wight Knight's long
appendages make it dangerous to approach."

Slowly lurches after you. When it gets close it wraps its hands around you and
unleashes a slow spin attack.


   |<3| Gargoyle |<3|

"A winged Heartless that mainly appears in Halloween Town. It pelts its
stunned opponents with fireballs."


   |<3| Pirate |<3|

When a Pirate lifts his sword straight into the air and it shines watch out.
If he hits Sora with the subsequent attack Sora will be stunned.


   |<3| Air Pirate |<3|


   |<3| Dark Ball |<3|

Flying Heartless with some annoying attacks. Can charge at you from a distance
or quickly bounce around in a small area.


   |<3| Defender |<3|

Defenders guard physical and magical attacks from the front and quickly
counter.


   |<3| Wyvern |<3|

Be careful of Wyvern's close ranged foot attack. It is a fierce attack that
hurts Sora for prolonged damage.


   |<3| Wizard |<3|

Wizards recover HP when hit with Thunder, Fire, Blizzard, Dumbo, or Mushu.


   |<3|  |<3|


   |<3| White Mushroom |<3|

"A Heartless with an unusual affinity for people. The White Mushroom never
attacks, and may even reward someone who comes to its aid.

When a White Mushroom wraps its arms around itself it is cold and wants you to
cast Fire on it. When he puts his arms in front of its face and fans itself it
is hot and wants you to cast Blizzard on it. When a darkened lightbulb appears
above its head it wants you to cast Thunder on it. Cast three spells on it to
get a Premium badge and some experience. If you attack it physically or cast
the wrong spell it will leave the battle.


   |<3| Black Fungus |<3|

   |<3| Creep Plant |<3|

"A flower-like Heartless. It's rooted in one place, but staying far away isn't
enough, since it can spit seeds or attack from below with its sharp roots."

Rooted plant with strong close range attack and distance root attack. Magic
and Goofy work well as they cannot avoid those attacks.

   |<3| Tornado Step |<3|

"A Heartless that flies about using its arms like propeller blades. Whether
moving or attacking, it's always spin, spin, spinning--but never seems to get
dizzy.

Moves quickly across the screen. Uses a spinning attack that propels it from
one end of the battlefield to the other.

   |<3| Crescendo |<3|

"A hopping, horn-like Heartless. It's a bothersome foe that can honk and call
other Heartless."

Short with a big horn snout. Not very capable of hurting you, but they can
call other Heartless into battle. If you hang back too much and do not attack
them they will call for more help.

                         \\-------------------------//

 |<3| Attacks |<3|

Hand Attack: A slow, weak attack from one of his hands.

Foot Attack: Sends both feet stomping out at you in a direct line. Hurts on
             the way out but the feet are vulnerable as they return to the
             body.

Jump: Causes damage by shaking the floor. To avoid be in the air when he
      lands.

Spinning Hands: Hands rotate quickly around Armor Guard. Retreat when he
                begins this attack and resume fighting him when it ends.

After defeating his extremities, Armor Guard starts using a few new attacks.

Spinning Torso: Torso spins rapidly around the battlefield. Dodge Roll to
                avoid it.

Jumping Torso: Torso repeatedly bounces up and down, shaking the floor and
               causing damage to a grounded Sora with every bounce. To avoid
               be in the air when he lands.

 |<3| Places to Attack |<3|

Each of Armor Guard's hands and feet can be attacked. Once they are destroyed
his torso becomes vulnerable. Kill the torso to end the battle.

 |<3| Strategy |<3|

Keep the corner of your eye on the lowe left part of the screen. When a grey
card appears there, Armor Guard is about to attack. For his Jump attack make
sure you jump and are in the air when he is about to land. Dodge Rolling is an
effectice way to avoid the rest of his attacks.

Focus on destroying him one limb at a time. Attack the target just after the
Heartless has finished his attacks to minimize Card Breaks. Only use Combo
Attacks for your low value 0, 1, and 2 Cards and when you do use it Jump in
the air and then hold L+R to release the attack. That allows you to
potentially hit multiple targets multiple times. Blizzard works well against
him and remember to use Cure often,

Occasionally a green Mickey Card will drop. Use this in combination with your
Attack Cards. This Card will shake the battlefield and drop all pieces of
Armor Guard to the ground. Unleash as many attacks as you can before he stands
up again. Sliding Dash work well here as it allows you to hit multiple limbs.

Once his limbs are gone he attacks anew. His torso form is faster and requires
you to Dodge Roll and jump more often. Cure often and save some Attack Cards
for when you get a Mickey Card.



                         //-------------------------\\
                           !<3!  Trick  Master  !<3!
                         \\-------------------------//

   |<3| Attacks |<3|

Fire Ball: Trick Master crosses his torches and shoots a Fire Ball with some
           tracking capability. As long as you are moving, the ball probably
           will not hit.

March: Trick Master walks across the screen, trying to stamp Sora underfoot.
       If Sora is at the bottom of the screen, he will walk by you without
       hurting you.

Floor Slap: Crashes both hands against the floor, causing damage to Sora if
            he is not airborne. Time your Jump to avoid it.

Windup: Crouches and brings his arms backwards. He gathers his power to
        perform and two arm uppercut, damaging anyone standing nearby.

None of his attacks are that hard to avoid. When you see him cross his
torches, start moving to avoid the upcoming fire ball. Jump to reach his torso
and then attack. Sliding Dash and abilities that do not have upwards
capabilities, like Blizzard, will not hurt him. He is susceptible to Fire
damage.

At times a Mickey Card will drop down. When you use it a table will appear on
the middle of the battlefield. The table allows you to be vertically even with
Trick Master's belly. This allows you to use Blizzard and similar abilities to
damage him.

Two Hand Slap: Joins his hands together over its head and slams them in the
               ground in front of it. Causes damage and makes the platforms
               smaller.

Swing: Plants its arms into the ground and swings its body across the screen
       and back to its original position.

Acid Ball: Shoots a ball of green acid at you. Stand still and then quickly
           Dodge Roll when it comes flying at you.

   |<3| Where to Attack |<3|

Attack it all over its body. When it tilts its head back, hit it in the open
area to get a Mickey Card.

   |<3| Cards to Equip |<3|

Fire, Cloud, Cure 

   |<3| Strategy |<3|

This guy can be tricky. He requires patience and planning. Any Card you use
while standing in the green acid will fail before you get to use it. Make sure
you are standing on top of one of the circular platforms before using Cards.
After hitting it with Fire, he will tilt his head back. At this time hit him
in the mouth for a Mickey Card. Using a Mickey Card restores the circular
platforms to their largest circumference.

It is hard to dodge many of his attacks so the onus is on you to attack him
correctly. Store Keyblade combos then launch yourself in the air and release
them to deal decent damage. Standing on a platform for too long will cause it
to sink into the acid temporarily.

   |<3| Sliding Dash |<3|

"Slide toward distant targets for a close-range attack."

Requires: - Three attack cards of the same type
          - Total value 10-15

Acquired: Through learning at a level up at level 2

Sliding Dash is not that great and I am usually frustrated when I accidentaly
trigger and use it. I would rather have three standard attacks in a row as
that allows you to hit the same enemy three times instead of many enemies only
once or twice. It does have its uses against some of the more immobile enemies
and the ones that can guard from the front like Large Bodies.

My Grade: D+


   |<3| Blitz |<3|

"Unleash a powerful three-hit combo upon the enemy."

Requires: - Three attack cards of differing types
          - Total value 10-15

Acquired: At a level up at level 17

Blitz is an excellent ability. It deals good damage to regular Heartless and
Bosses. It does not require any aim and can hit multiple targets. The only
drawback is that at a maximum total value of 15, it is susceptible to breaks.

My Grade: A-


   |<3| Stun Impact |<3|

"Stun surrounding enemies with a single attack."

Requires: - Three attack cards of the same type
          - Total value 20-23

Acquired: At a level up at

This is not much of an ability. It only causes a little damage and the stun
effect does not last that long and is not effective against bosses.

My Grade: C-


   |<3| Strike Raid |<3|

"Hurl the Keyblade forward stunning and dealing damage to enemies in its
path."

Requires: - Three attack cards
          - Total value 24-26

Acquired: At a level up at level 12


   |<3| Sonic Blade |<3|

"Press the A Button for up to six additional attacks."

Requires: - Three attack cards of differing types
          - Total value 20-23

Acquired: At a level up at level 22

This ability is outstanding. It dominates regular Heartless. It allows you to
go back and forth across the screen six times without taking damage and
dealing hefty punishment to your foes. Against bosses its high value makes it
tough to break, unless the boss uses a Zero Card. The last strike is always a
critical. To use this attack unleash it and then hit A when you want to go in
the opposite direction. Hit A again to reverse course up to six times total.

My Grade: A+

The "ara" and "aga" suffixes indicate that it is a more powerful version of
the same spell. Somewhere down the line Squaresoft went from labeling more
powerful spells with suffixes instead of numbers. In case you were curious the
fourth level suffix is "ja."

Some of these abilities can only be found in a blue room that is created with
Cards like Calm Bounty or False Bounty.

   |<3| Cura |<3|
Requires: Cure x2

A useful spell that recovers a good deal of HP. It has its benefits over
Curaga in that you can start the stock with a lesser card that you do not mind
losing and finish it with Cura, preventing you from losing any Cure Cards.


   |<3| Curaga |<3|
Requires: Cure x3

Greatly recover your HP. Use only when necessary as stocking it sacrifices one
of your Cure Cards. Of course losing a Cure Card is better than dying.
