    I. Introduction
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    This FAQ answers questions about magic and summons in Kingdom Hearts 
    (US version).  Most of the data was translated from the Kingdom Hearts 
    Ultimania, which is a guide for the original Japanese game.  All of the 
    formulas in the "Questions and Answers" sections of this FAQ have been 
    tested for accuracy.

    II. Magic Questions and Answers

    2. Where and how can I obtain these spells?
    
    To obtain new spells and upgrades, you must complete certain events. 
    These events are listed below according to magic type.
    
    For each magic type: the 1st spell you obtain will always be the basic 
    spell.  After clearing another event, your magic will be upgraded to 
    the 2nd level (-ra) spell.  You receive the 3rd level (-ga) spell 
    upgrade after clearing all 3 events.

    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    3. How much MP does it cost to cast these spells?
    
    Using Fire and Blizzard magic decreases your yellow MP charge gauge 
    first.  Using any other magic decreases your blue MP gauge.
    
        Fire magic: 1 charge unit
    Blizzard magic: 1 charge unit
     Thunder magic: 1 MP
        Cure magic: 1 MP
     Gravity magic: 1 MP
        Stop magic: 2 MP
        Aero magic: 2 MP
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    4. What determines the strength of my magic?
    
    Magic power is based on your MP stat.  This is similar to how the 
    strength of physical attacks is determined by your STR stat.  The 
    greater Sora's MP stat is, the more powerful his magic is.
    
    Sora's maximum possible MP is determined by the power he chooses at 
    the very beginning of the game.  If he chooses to keep the Staff, he 
    will have 2 MP more by the end of the game. Please refer to the Level 
    Information FAQ for details.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    5. Why doesn't magic work as well against bosses, etc.?
    
    Enemies can have different weaknesses and resistances to magic.  In 
    general, bosses have a higher resistance to magic attacks than normal 
    enemies.  Some bosses are completely immune to magic attacks.
    
    Enemies that use magic usually cannot be hurt by magic attacks of the 
    same type.  For example, Red Nocturnes absorb Fire magic.
    
    After Hollow Bastion, almost all enemies have a greater resistance to 
    Gravity and Stop magic.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    6. How much HP does Cure magic restore?
    
    You can use these formulas to calculate how much HP Cure, Cura, and 
    Curaga spells will restore based on the magic-user's MP stat (MaxMP).
    
    Cure = (MaxMP x 3) + 6
    Cura = (MaxMP x 3) + 18
    Curaga = (MaxMP x 3) + 30
    
    Note: These formulas are not the same as the one listed in the 
    Ultimania guide.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    7. How can I do 100% damage with Gravity magic?
    
    Before Hollow Bastion, you can use these formulas to calculate 
    Gravity magic's damage percentage.
    
    Gravity = (MaxMP x 5) + 40 %
    Gravira = (MaxMP x 5) + 55 %
    Graviga = (MaxMP x 5) + 70 %
    
    If Sora's MP stat is at least 9, then Gravira will kill most normal 
    enemies with one hit.  To get Sora's MP stat up to 9, you can equip MP 
    boosting accessories or keyblade.
    
    After Hollow Bastion, Gravity magic is less effective for most enemies, 
    so these formulas no longer apply.  I've tested Graviga on various 
    enemies, and found that Sora's MP stat needs to be at least 11 to kill 
    enemies with one hit.  For some stronger enemies, such as Defenders, 
    Sora's MP stat must be at least 13.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    8. How long does Stop magic last?
    
    Before Hollow Bastion, Stop, Stopra, and Stopga spells will remain in 
    effect for (MaxMP + 2) seconds.
    
    After Hollow Bastion, almost all enemies have a greater resistance to 
    Stop magic, so the effect time is less.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    9. How long does Aero magic last?
    
    Aero, Aerora, and Aeroga spells last for (MaxMP + 18) seconds.
    
    Aero barriers disappear when you call a summon into battle.  They also 
    disappear when you leave the area.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    10. What other practical uses for magic are there?
    
    Fire magic can light fireplaces, lamps, and candles.  It can also burn 
    away obstacles like cobwebs.  Blizzard magic can extinguish fires and 
    freeze water bubbles.  Thunder magic can start electricity.  Gravity 
    magic can lower floating platforms and other high objects.
    
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    III. Summons Questions and Answers
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    11. Who are the summoned characters in this game?
    
    The summoned characters are Simba, Genie, Bambi, Dumbo, Tinker Bell, 
    and Mushu.  There are Journal entries for each of these characters.  
    Four of the summoned characters use attacks, while the other two 
    restore the party.
    
    Attacks
    Simba: Proud Roar hits all enemies on the area map.
    Genie: Showtime hits multiple enemies with a variety of attacks.
    Dumbo: Splash douses enemies in front of Dumbo.
    Mushu: Fire Breath shoots fireballs at the enemy.
    
    Restore
    Tinker Bell: Heals the party and revives Sora from KO status once.
    Bambi: Drops MP balls and various items.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    12. Where and how do I obtain these summons?
    
    *** Spoilers included! ***
    
    Simba, Bambi, Dumbo, and Mushu are acquired from summon gems.  After 
    you deliver the Old Book to Merlin, bring these gems to the Fairy 
    Godmother.  She will turn the gems into summons that Sora can call into 
    battle.  Here is a list of the 4 summon gems and where they are 
    obtained.
    
    Earthshine (Simba): Traverse Town 
       Talk to Leon in the Secret Waterway.
    
    Naturespark (Bambi): Hundred Acre Wood
       Play Pooh's Hunny Hunt mini game once.  You must find at least one 
       Torn Page to open up this mini game.  The Torn Page will turn into 
       Naturespark.
    
    Watergleam (Dumbo): Monstro
       Find in treasure chest in Mouth.  If you leave Monstro before 
       getting Watergleam, you can go back later for it.  Monstro appears 
       randomly, so just keep trying until he shows up.
    
    Fireglow (Mushu): Hollow Bastion
       Defeat Maleficent (Dragon).
    
    Genie joins your party after Sora seals the Agrabah keyhole.
    Tinker Bell joins your party after Sora seals the Neverland keyhole.
    
    Collect all 6 summons and talk to the Fairy Godmother to receive 
    Donald's Lord Fortune weapon.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    13. How do I call summons into battle?
    
    Summons can only be used after a battle starts.  First, select Magic on 
    Sora's command menu, then Summon to access a list of the summons you 
    have.  Then you can choose the summon you want to use.
    
    Summoned characters will stay with Sora until their MP gauge reaches 
    zero or they are dismissed.  To stop using a summon, select the Magic 
    command again, then use the Dismiss command.
    
    Each summon can only be called once per battle.  Sora must have the 
    necessary amount of MP to call a summon.  Also, there must be three 
    party members in battle, with no party members KO'd.
    
    Sora is not allowed to use summons during the Olympus Coliseum 
    competitions.  Summons also cannot be used in Atlantica.
    
    In Neverland, Sora cannot call a summon while he is flying.  Sora can 
    start flying after a summon is called, but if Sora flies somewhere and 
    Simba or Bambi cannot follow, they will leave the battle.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    14. What are the side effects of using summons?
    
    Using summons limits the options that are available to you during 
    battle.
    
    While the summoned character is present, your two other party members 
    disappear.  This is true for all of the summons except Tinker Bell.  
    When the summon leaves, your friends will drop back into the area.
    
    Sora cannot use special attacks while the summoned character is 
    present.  Special attacks are Sonic Blade, Strike Raid, Ars Arcanum, 
    Ragnarok, and Trinity Limit.  These options simply won't appear in 
    Sora's command menu while using a summon.
    
    You cannot go to another area map while using a summon.  Before you can 
    exit the area, you must dismiss the summon.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    15. How much MP does it cost to call each summon?
    
    Bambi: 1 MP
    Simba: 2 MP
    Genie: 2 MP
    Dumbo: 3 MP
    Mushu: 3 MP
    Tinker Bell: 3 MP
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    16. What is the Cheer ability, and how do I get it?
    
    The Cheer ability increases the summons' MP gauge, giving them more 
    time and attacks per battle.  Equip Cheer to the entire party too boost 
    the effect.
    
    *** Spoilers included! ***
    
    To obtain Sora's Cheer ability, you must to beat the following scores 
    in the Hundred Acre Wood mini games.  Afterwards, talk to Owl by Pooh's 
    house to receive Sora's Cheer ability.
    
     Pooh's Hunny Hunt: over 100 licks
          Block Tigger: over 150 points
          Pooh's Swing: over 40 yards
    Tigger's Giant Pot: within 30 seconds
     Pooh's Muddy Path: within 5 minutes
    
    Goofy gets the Cheer ability after you defeat the Parasite Cage (1st 
    time) in Monstro.  Donald gets the Cheer ability after you defeat 
    Maleficent at Hallow Bastion.  Aladdin and Jack also have the Cheer 
    ability.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    17. How long do summons last?
    
    The maximum time it takes for a summoned character's MP gauge to reach 
    zero can be calculated according to the formulas below.  The MP gauge 
    decreases faster when a summon's attack is used.
    
    Summon's maximum MP =
       (Sora's MP stat) + (# of party members with Cheer ability equipped)
    
    For Bambi and Dumbo:
    Maximum time = (Summon's maximum MP) x 5 seconds
    
    For Simba, Genie, and Mushu:
    Maximum time = (Summon's maximum MP) x 8.3 seconds
    
    For example, say Sora's MP stat is 14, and Sora, Donald and Goofy all 
    have Cheer equipped.  Then Bambi's summon will last for 85 seconds. 
    Genie's summon will last as long as 141 seconds, but only if he never 
    uses Showtime.
    
    Tinker Bell is an exception because she doesn't have an MP gauge.  
    Tinker Bell stays with Sora until she is dismissed or she revives Sora 
    from KO status.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    18. How do I use Simba's Proud Roar attack?
    
    Simba's Proud Roar hits all enemies on the area map, so there's no need 
    to target anything.  When Simba is summoned, the Charge Up command 
    appears in the 4th slot in Sora's command menu.  Select Charge Up and 
    hold down the X button to fill Simba's blue charge gauge.  When the 
    Proud Roar command appears, release the X button to activate Simba's 
    attack.  Hold the X button down longer for a more powerful attack.  
    Using Proud Roar decreases Simba's MP gauge by 1 MP.
    
    While Sora is charging up, he cannot move and is vulnerable to enemy 
    attacks.  If Sora is hit before activating Proud Roar, Simba's charge 
    gauge falls back down to zero.  To avoid being interrupted, try to go 
    someplace where the enemies' attacks won't reach.
    
    Each time Simba's charge gauge is filled by 1 unit, Simba and Sora's 
    keyblade flash with light.  The number of units in Simba's charge gauge 
    is equal to half of Simba's maximum MP, with a maximum of 5 units.
    
    Proud Roar's attack type depends on how much Simba's charge gauge is 
    filled.  Charge up 1 or 2 units for a normal type Proud Roar attack.  
    Charge up 3 or 4 units for a KO type Proud Roar attack that can stun 
    enemies.  Charge up a full 5 units for a Gravity type Proud Roar attack 
    (over 300% damage) that eliminates every enemy on the map.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    19. How do I use Genie's Showtime attack?
    
    Lock-on to a target and the Showtime command will become available in 
    the 4th slot in Sora's command menu.  Use Showtime and Genie will 
    perform a continuous stream of attacks.  Genie will hit all enemies 
    within a given range, as indicated by his face icon on the targets.  
    Using Showtime decreases Genie's MP gauge by 1 MP.
    
    Genie's Showtime is a combination of different attacks.  Genie casts 
    Gravity, Thunder, and Stop magic, and also shoots out pink, yellow, and 
    blue energy balls.  The yellow energy ball sometimes stuns enemies.  
    The pink and blue energy balls are normal type attacks.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    20. How do I use Dumbo's Splash attack?
    
    While Dumbo is summoned, Sora rides on Dumbo's head.  Press the circle 
    button to have Dumbo ascend, and the square button to descend.  In 
    Neverland, Dumbo can fly as high as Sora can.
    
    Splash replaces the Attack command in Sora's command menu.  Use Splash 
    and Dumbo shoots out a blast of water that hits any enemy directly 
    front of him.  Hold down the X button for a continuous attack.  Dumbo's 
    MP gauge decreases twice as fast when using Splash.
    
    Although Splash is a water attack, it is classified as a Blizzard type 
    attack.
    
    Sora cannot use any commands besides Splash while Dumbo is summoned.  
    Fortunately, Sora won't take any damage while riding on Dumbo.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    21. How do I use Mushu's Fire Breath attack?
    
    When Mushu is summoned, Fire Breath replaces the Attack command in 
    Sora's command menu.  Use Fire Breath and Mushu will shoot 3 quick 
    fireballs at the target.  Hold down the X button for a continuous 
    attack.  Mushu's MP gauge decreases faster when using Fire Breath.
    
    Like Firaga, Fire Breath has a long range and can home in on targets 
    above Sora.  Naturally, Fire Breath is a Fire type attack.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    22. How much HP does Tinker Bell restore?
    
    When Tinker Bell heals a party member, the amount of HP recovered is 
    equal to Sora's MP stat.  Tinker Bell rotates between your 3 party 
    members, healing one person at a time.  She heals someone about once 
    every 2 seconds.
    
    Tinker Bell prevents Sora from being KO'd, but only once.  If Sora's HP 
    falls to zero, Tinker Bell immediately restores all of Sora's HP and 
    leaves the battle.  There is no delay in the battle when Tinker Bell 
    revives Sora.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    23. What items does Bambi drop?
    
    Bambi always drops MP balls, and Sora's MP stat determines which MP 
    balls Bambi drops.
    4 or less MP = small MP balls
    5 or 6 MP = both small and large MP balls
    7 or more MP = large MP balls
    
    While Bambi is summoned, Sora must kill enemies to charge Bambi's blue 
    gauge.  When that gauge is completely filled, Bambi drops an item.  It 
    takes 6 enemies to completely fill Bambi's gauge once.
    
    The list below shows the items Bambi drops when summoned at different 
    locations.  The 1st time Bambi's gauge is filled, Bambi will drop one 
    item, and so on.  The percentage is the chance that Bambi will drop 
    that item.  The items and percentages for the 3rd time apply for all 
    successive item drops.

    IV. MP Questions and Answers
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    24. How does the MP charge gauge work?
    
    The MP charge gauge is the yellow line inside your blue MP gauge.  This 
    gauge helps you recover MP during battle.
    
    When you physically attack an enemy, your MP charge gauge fills up.  
    The amount that is filled depends on both the enemy you are attacking 
    and your character's level.  Attacking more powerful enemies fills your 
    MP charge gauge more per hit.  As your character's level increases, 
    your MP charge gauge fills less per hit.
    
    The final hit of a combo fills the MP charge gauge by twice as much as 
    a regular hit.  Counterattack fills the MP charge gauge a lot more than 
    a regular hit.
    
    To recover 1 MP, you must fill the MP charge gauge by one unit more 
    than your current MP.  For example, say you currently have 2 MP.  When 
    you fill your MP charge gauge by 3 units, you will recover 1 MP.  Your 
    current MP will now be 3, and your MP charge gauge will fall back down 
    to zero.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    25. How much MP do MP balls restore?
    
    MP balls are the transparent blue balls dropped by defeated enemies.  
    Pick up these MP balls to raise your MP charge gauge.
    
    Small MP balls fill your MP charge gauge by 1/15 of one charge unit.  
    Large MP balls fill 1/2 of one charge unit.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    26. Which items restore MP?
    
    These 4 items can be equipped by party members and used during battle.
    
         Ether: Restores 3 MP of one character.
    Mega-Ether: Restores 3 MP of each party member.
        Elixir: Fully restores a character's HP and MP.
     Megalixir: Fully restores the party's HP and MP.
    
    These 2 items can only be used from the menu.
    
    Camping Set: Restores all HP and 3 MP of each party member.
        Cottage: Fully restores the party's HP and MP.
    
    ----------------------------------------------------------------------
    27. Which abilities help recover MP?
    
    MP Haste: This ability boosts your MP recovery rate in battle.  MP 
              Haste increases the amount that your MP charge gauge fills 
              when you hit an enemy.  It costs 3 AP to equip.  It can be 
              learned by Sora, Donald, Goofy, Ariel, and Peter Pan.
    
    MP Rage: This ability helps you recover MP whenever you're hit in 
             battle.  With one MP Rage equipped, your MP charge gauge 
             increases by half the length that your HP gauge decreases.  
             With two MP Rages equipped, your MP charge gauge increases by 
             the same length that your HP gauge decreases.  This ability 
             costs 2 AP to equip.  It can be learned by Sora, Donald, 
             Goofy, Ariel, Jack, and Beast.
    
    MP Gift: This ability can only be learned by Goofy.  Goofy sacrifices 
             1 MP to give another party member 3 MP.  This ability costs 
             3 AP to equip.
