    -[Introduction]- [#01]
    
    Let's make things clear. This FAQ only talks about normal enemy Heartless. It 
    does not contain strategies for boss Heartless.
    
    I apologise for that harsh introduction, but it had to be done. Anyway, 
    welcome all the people reading this.

    THE HEARTLESS
    
    -[Shadow]- [#02]
    
    In-game description: 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.
    
    Location: Almost everywhere.
    
    Attacks: 1. Slide kick.
             
             2. The shadow jumps and attempts to claw you.
             
             3. The shadow hides in the ground. When doing this it looks like it a
                flattened pancake. The shadow is immune to all attacks when in this 
                position. 
    
    Dropped card: Incrementor
    Effect: Increases values of cards by 1.

    -[Soldier]- [#03]
    
    In-game description: A swift moving Heartless that attacks its prey with a 
                         spin kick.
                         
                         Its whimsical nature makes the soldier a less than 
                         tenacious foe.
    
    Location: Traverse Town, Wonderland, Twilight Town and anywhere that has
    	  Crescendos.
    
    Attacks: 1. Hurricane kick, like those of street fighter.
    
             2. Headbutt
    
    Dropped card: Combo Plus
    Effect: Adds an extra hit to combos.

    -[Large Body]- [#04]
    
    In-game description: A rotund Heartless.
                         
                         The Large Body repels frontal attacks with its jiggly 
                         belly.
                         
                         Sometimes it throws its weight around and shakes the 
                         ground, so jumping is the key.
    
    Location: Wonderland, Olympus Coliseum, Monstro
    
    Attacks: 1. The large body lunges forward.
             
             2. The large body jumps. When it lands, it creates an earthquake that
                affects the entire field. To avoid this attack, jump when the large
                body is about to land.
    
    Notes: If you attack the front of the large body, it has no effect. To damage
           it, dodge roll behind it and attack. It can be hit from the front by 
           magic and non-physical keyblade cards (eg. metal chocobo, lionheart). 
           
    Dropped card: Guard
    Effect: Nullifies frontal physical attacks.

                         The Red Nocturne attacks with Fire from a distance, 
                         and absorbs Fire damage.

    -[Blue Rhapsody]- [#06]
    
    In-game description: A magic-wielding Heartless that drifts through the air.
    
                         The Blue Rhapsody attacks with Blizzard once it's close 
                         enough, and absorbs Blizzard damage.

                         The Yellow Opera hurls itself at enemies or attacks with 
                         Thunder.  It absorbs all Thunder damage.

    -[Green Requiem]- [#08]
    
    In-game description: 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 make it tough to squash.
    
    Location: Agrabah, Monstro, Castle Oblivion
    
    Attacks: 1. Heals an ally.
    
    Note: The Green Requiem absorbs fire, ice and thunder damage.
