    Game Screen
    ===============================================================
    
    Field Icon - appears when Sora gets near objects or people that he 
    can interact with.  
    
    HP Gauge - displays Hit Points, which you lose as you take damage 
    from enemy attacks - Sora's is displayed in the lower-right corner 
    of the screen - the HP Gauge of other party members is displayed in 
    the upper-right corner of the screen
    
    MP Gauge - displays Magic Points, which you lose after you cast a 
    magic spell or after you use a special ability - each block 
    represents 1 MP.  The MP Gauge is the blue gauge above the HP Gauge.  
    
    Charge Gauge - a yellow gauge that appears at the top of the MP 
    Gauge - when it fills up to a certain point, it is converted to MP.  
    Spells with low MP cost draw from the Charge Gauge first.
    
    Targeting and Command Changes - Sora can automatically target 
    enemies, people he can talk to, and objects that he can pick up or 
    examine, such as crates and paintings.  Certain commands may change 
    into new ones when something is targeted.  Turn automatic targeting 
    on and off in the CONFIG menu.  An Auto Lock occurs when you get 
    near something.  Press R1 to lock the target so you don't lose sight 
    of it.  This is especially true of enemies.  
    ===============================================================
    
    Battle System
    ===============================================================
    All battles in 'Kingdom Hearts' occur in real-time, meaning that 
    Sora will take damage even while selecting items and spells.  The 
    command menu turns red during battle.  
    
    While attacking, press the X Button at the right time to trigger a 
    combo attack.  Besides the basic three-hit combo, there are 
    combinations that deal even more blows. 
    
    The game automatically controls your other party members.  However, 
    you can adjust each member's fighting style in the CUSTOMIZE menu.  
    Press the Triangle Button to call your friends for help in battle.  
    This feature only works in certain situations.  
    
    As in all RPGS, you earn experience points by fighting and defeating 
    your enemies.  You can also earn Tech Points, which result from the 
    successful blocking of an enemy attack.  The regular foes that you 
    encounter will almost always leave behind something valuable.  
    
    HP Balls - these restore your HP, but not very much.
    
    Munny - can be used to purchase items
    
    Bubbles - refill the Charge Gauge
    
    Treasure Chests - contain various items, and come in different 
    colors. 
    ===============================================================
    
    General Information
    ===============================================================
    There are two types of Save Points.  The only difference between 
    them is that the second type doesn't always let you return to your 
    Gummi Ship.  As far as I know, this is only the case in the Olympus 
    Coliseum Lobby. 
    
    There are three types of Treasure Chests.  Red ones are the most 
    common, and contain a variety of items.  Blue ones have a tiny 
    Keyhole on them, and usually contain either Puppies or Gummi pieces.
    Green ones are the rarest, and contain a variety of items.
    
    Trinity Marks are found in every world, and come in one of five 
    colors: Blue, Red, White, Green, and Yellow.  You will acquire them 
    as you progress through the game.  When you get near one of these 
    marks, the Trinity command will appear.  Use it and you will uncover 
    secret areas or receive important items.  Trinity Marks can only be 
    activated when your party consists of Sora, Donald, and Goofy.  
    
    
    You can learn new spells by clearing stages or completing certain 
    tasks.  Learned spells can be viewed by selecting the MAGIC command.  
    They are upgraded in the same manner.  You can create a magic 
    shortcut menu by choosing CUSTOMIZE from the main menu.  You will 
    assign a spell to a button, and then by holding L1 and pressing that 
    button, you can cast a spell quickly and easily.  
    
    There are a total of six summon spells.  Two of them will be learned 
    automatically.  The other four are found in summon gems, and can be 
    released by the Fairy Godmother.  To call a summoned character, 
    select the MAGIC command, and then choose SUMMON.  That character 
    will enter the battle and say there until it's MP runs out.  Summon 
    spells can only be used when Sora's allies are conscious.  
    
    Abilities are learned as you gain levels, or by clearing stages and 
    defeating certain enemies.  In order to equip an Ability, you need 
    AP.  Obviously, you can't equip every Ability that you have.  Only 
    equip the ones that would be most helpful.  
    
    The Gummi Ship, which is used to fly to other worlds, can be 
    augmented through a rather tedious process that I have never fully 
    explored.  You have to acquire a blueprint, and then some parts, and 
    then you can build yourself a new Gummi Ship.  You don't need to do 
    this at all, but some people like it.  I find it to be confusing and 
    stupid.

    Walkthrough 
    ===============================================================
    
    III.	Awakening/Destiny Islands
    
    Watch the opening cutscene.  After it's over, you get control of 
    Sora, the main character.  He is standing on a stained glass motif 
    of Snow White.  Three pedestals appear in front of you.  You are 
    asked to make a choice.  Your first selection will be your strongest 
    attribute.  Your second choice will be your weakest.  Here are the 
    options:
    
    The Sword: This is the gift of attack.  It might be the obvious 
    choice, and for first time players, it is recommended.  Choosing it 
    will make offense your top priority.  Your Strength stat will be 
    leveled up faster than any other.  If the Sword is your second 
    choice, then Strength will be leveled up less frequently than the 
    other stats.  Some people like power, but it can be used foolishly.  
    Remember that.
    
    The Shield: The power of defense.  If the Shield is your first 
    choice, your HP and Defense stats will be leveled up more frequently 
    than the other stats.  You will begin the game with higher Defense, 
    which is helpful when fighting your friends on Destiny Islands.  If 
    the Shield is your second choice, HP and Defense will be leveled up 
    less frequently than the other stats.  This can be bothersome when 
    you approach the later stages of the game.
    
    The Rod: Power of the Mystic.  If the Rod is your first choice, your 
    AP and MP will level up more frequently than other stats.  You will 
    start the game with higher amounts of AP and MP.  If the Rod is your 
    second choice, your AP and MP will level up less frequently that 
    other stats. 
    
    My favorite combination is Sword, then Rod.  This makes Sora a 
    strong fighter, and gives him a fair balance of HP and Defense.  You 
    will always have enough AP when you need it, and your MP can be 
    restored easily by a couple of great abilities.  After you have made 
    your decisions, the floor will fall away and you will end up in the 
    Cinderella Room.  You will do battle with a Shadow, your first 
    enemy.  Follow the instructions and defeat the Shadows (they are 
    worth 1 EXP a piece).  After your victory, you will fall to the next 
    room.  This one has a Heart motif.  There is a door here.  Examine 
    it and follow the instructions.  You have to open a chest, push and 
    smash a crate, and lock-on to a barrel.  This is intended to teach 
    you some fundamental skills.  After you have accomplished these 
    tasks, the door will open.  Proceed forward.
    
    Next, you will see three children.  Talk to each of them and you 
    will be asked a question.  Your answers will influence how quickly 
    you level up during the course of the game.  
    
          Selphie 
          What's most important to you?
    1.	Being number one
    2.	Friendship
    3.	My prize possessions
    
    Wakka 
    What do you want out of life?
    1.	To see rare sights
    2.	To broaden my horizons
    3.	To be strong
    
    Tidus 
    What are you afraid of?
    1.	Getting old
    2.	Being different
    3.	Being indecisive 
    
    After making your choices, you will be transported to the next 
    room, which has a motif of Aurora, from 'Sleeping Beauty'.  
    You will do battle with 8 Shadows.  You should gain a level at 
    some point during this fight.  Afterwards, use the Save Point, 
    and then follow the staircase to the final room, which has a 
    motif of Belle.  Here, you will confront your first Boss.
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Darkside
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 18p
    Rewards: None
    
    Don't be fooled by this thing's size. It is a pushover.  You 
    can target either one of its hands.  Stay with it and hack 
    away, using jump and slash combos to do as much damage as 
    possible.  When it plunges its fist into the ground, it will 
    spawn 4 Shadows.  Take them out and collect the HP orbs they 
    leave behind.  You can definitely gain a  level for defeating 
    Darkside, but you can gain another by fighting repeated groups 
    of Shadows.  The other attack that Darkside uses is when he 
    starts drawing energy into his glowing heart.  After a few 
    moments, he will release some lasers.  Dodge these as best you 
    can.  If you take damage, just wait for the next batch of 
    Shadows. 
    ==============================================================
    
    Destiny Islands
    
    Watch the cutscene to find out that what just happened was 
    probably a dream. Afterwards, talk to Kairi.  She wants you to 
    gather some materials to make the raft.  You have to collect 2 
    LOGS, a CLOTH, and a ROPE.  Before you do this, however, scour 
    the island and talk to your friends.  Each one will challenge 
    you to a fight.  Be sure to accept, because you can gain 
    experience and be introduced to a variety of attack patterns 
    that tougher enemies will use later on.  The first person you 
    meet is Wakka.
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Wakka 
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 1p
    Rewards: None
    
    Wakka is, of course, from Final Fantasy X. He is armed with a 
    ball, which he throws at you.  You can use your sword to hit 
    it back at him.  Be sure that your timing is fairly precise, 
    or else you will miss and take damage.  If you are successful, 
    Wakka may be stunned for a few seconds.  Run up and attack 
    him.  If he doesn't get stunned, don't worry.  He will 
    eventually.  The more reckless approach is to chase after him 
    and hit him right after he has tossed his ball.  You can jump 
    over it when it comes your way.  You might earn Tech Points 
    for deflecting the ball.
    ==============================================================
    After you beat Wakka, go to the dock to find Selphie. 
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Selphie
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 1p
    Rewards: None
    
    Selphie, from Final Fantasy VIII, uses a whip, which gives her 
    a long reach.  Her attacks can be dodged most effectively by 
    jumping.  Hit her just as you are about to land.  You may earn 
    a Tech Point for doing this.  You can usually corner her near 
    where you met Wakka.  If this happens, you can slash at her 
    until she is defeated, and she won't counterattack. 
    ==============================================================
    The next challenger is Tidus, from Final Fantasy X.  You can 
    find him on an elevated platform near the back of the island.  
    It was the same one where you answered questions to determine 
    how quickly you would gain experience.  
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Tidus
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 2p
    Rewards: None
    
    You have to tackle Tidus with a little more discretion than 
    Selphie and Wakka.  He fights with the same weapon as Sora, 
    and tends to stay close to you.  He likes to charge, so jump 
    over him, and attack him from behind.  You will probably take 
    quite a bit of damage in this fight.  If so, you should have 
    the POTION that you got at the beginning of the game.  
    ==============================================================
    Now, go the Save Point in the Seaside Shack.  Go up the nearby 
    stairs.  You will find the Bridge.  Riku is sitting on a tree 
    in this area.  He is the reigning champ of the island, so 
    beating him is a real accomplishment.
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Riku
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 5p
    Rewards: Potion 
    
    Riku can take you by surprise if you're unprepared.  He moves 
    quickly, and is able to dodge a lot of your attacks.  After 
    you hit him about 4 times, he will fall down, and then he will 
    spring back to his feet, damaging you in the process.  Be sure 
    that you don't fall off the side of the platform.  If you do, 
    you lose automatically.  Basically, try to stay behind and hit 
    him when possible.  This battle could take several minutes, so 
    just be patient.  You'll notice that if you are victorious, 
    Sora keeps a mental note of who is ahead.  It seems that he 
    and Riku are involved in a little friendly competition.  If 
    you lose more than once, you may consider restarting, because 
    this can seriously hinder your chances of beating Riku in an 
    upcoming race.  The cost of failure: you lose the right to 
    name the raft.
    ==============================================================
    After you beat Riku, you can start doing what Kairi asked you 
    to do.  
    
    Log #1: near the water to the left of where Kairi is standing.  
    You can't miss it.  It is directly under the Bridge.  
    
    Log #2: On the ground near Riku
    
    Cloth: head past Wakka and when you get to the fork in the 
    path, go up the stairs to the right.  You will come to a Tree 
    House.  The CLOTH is hanging on the wall of the Tree House.
    
    Rope: on the same platform as Tidus
    
    After you have all of these items, take them back to Kairi and 
    get a HI-POTION.  You won't get this if she had to give you 
    any clues.  When Kairi asks you if you want to rest, say yes.
    
    The next day, you can go to the Cove, which lies beyond the 
    door Kairi was previously standing in front of.  Before you 
    enter this new area, however, you can re-challenge Wakka, 
    Selphie, and Tidus, who have moved from their original 
    positions.  Tidus is now in the same place Riku was before.  
    Talk to him, and you will have the option to face all three of 
    them simultaneously. 
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Tidus, Wakka, Selphie
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 4p
    Rewards: Potion
    
    Individually, Tidus, Wakka, and Selphie, weren't much of a 
    problem.  That has changed, however.  There is power in 
    numbers, and, together, they make a hell of a team.  I like to 
    take out Selphie first, because she is the easiest.  You can 
    corner her like you did the first time.  She can be a real 
    nuisance if you leave her 'til last.  Once she is down, work 
    on Wakka.  He can hit you from behind.  Try to isolate him, 
    too, and don't waste time deflecting his ball tosses.  Be 
    aggressive!!!  Finally, there is Tidus, who is clearly the 
    most skilled of the three.  Fight him like you did before, 
    jumping over him and slashing his backside.  You can earn 
    several Tech Points by blocking his blows.  Selphie and Tidus 
    tend to stay pretty close to one another, so you might find 
    that to be advantageous.
    ==============================================================
    In the Cove, you will see Riku standing by the door.  Talk to 
    him, and he will tell you what he wants to name the raft.  He 
    wants to call it the Highwind.  Sora thinks that it should 
    have a better name.  His choice is Excalibur, but you can pick 
    any name you want.  This will also be the name of your Gummi 
    Ship later on.  To resolve the argument, you are going to race 
    Riku.  You have to pass through an obstacle course, touch a 
    Paopu tree, and then head back to your starting point.  The 
    race is not about speed.  First of all, drop below the wooden 
    platforms and run through the water.  It is quicker because 
    you don't have to jump over the gaps.  Run past the raft and 
    up the small cliffs.  Touch the tree and then drop back down 
    to the ground, following the same path.  DO NOT GO THROUGH THE 
    CAVE.  This is a guaranteed loss.  When you win the race, Sora 
    will name the raft, and you will get a PRETTY STONE.  You can 
    race Riku as many times as you want after your initial victory 
    and each consecutive win will earn you a PRETTY STONE.  They 
    aren't essential items, however.  
    
    Here is what Kairi wants you to bring her: 3 MUSHROOMS, a 
    SEAGULL EGG, 2 COCONUTS, 3 FISH, and a bottle of DRINKING 
    WATER.  Before you star collecting these things, however, head 
    back to the stairs that you used during the race.  You should 
    see a crate near the stairs.  Push the crate against the wall 
    under the cave, and then enter the cave to get a PROTECT 
    CHAIN.  Equip it immediately.  Now on to your quest. 
    
    Mushrooms #1: in the cave blocked by the boulder. Push the big 
    rock to the right and enter the cave.
    
    Mushroom #2: found at the base of the wooden tower, where the 
    gliding mechanism is.  
    
    Mushroom #3: in the Secret Place.  When you pick it up, watch 
    the flashback with Sora and Kairi.   Sora will then meet a 
    mysterious individual who appears from behind the door.  He is 
    obviously from another world, but how did he get to the 
    Destiny Islands?  You will find out the truth in time. 
    
    Coconuts: walk around the Bridge area and whack all of the 
    trees.  Coconuts will fall to the ground.  You only want the 
    yellow ones. 
    
    Seagull Egg: sitting on top of a tree on the Bridge.  Use the 
    nearby pole to get it.
    
    Fish: swim around in the water near the dock where Selphie is 
    sitting and will find the Fish.
    
    Drinking Water: the waterfall near Wakka
    
    Save your progress and head back to the Cove.
    
    Once you hand the items over to Kairi, she will give you 
    another HI-POTION, granted that you didn't need her help.  
    Watch the next couple of cutscenes.  In one of them, you will 
    see Donald and Goofy, who meet Jiminy Cricket as they prepare 
    for their journey to find the King.  Next, you'll see Sora in 
    his room.  A storm approaches.  He looks out of his window and 
    notices that Riku's and Kairi's boats are gone.  When he 
    returns to the Beach, he finds that it has been overrun by 
    Shadows.  Your toy sword deals no damage, so don't bother 
    attacking.  Instead, head to the Seaside Shack (saving if you 
    so desire) and head to the Bridge, where you fought Riku.  You 
    will receive the Keyblade.  Now it is time to punish the 
    Shadows.  They are infinite, so you can fight them you your 
    heart's content.  This is a great place to gain a couple of 
    levels before moving on.  Head to the strange door and enter.  
    You will be in the Secret Place.  After your meeting with 
    Kairi, you will be whisked into another encounter with 
    Darkside.  
    ==============================================================
    Boss: Darkside
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 300
    EXP: 60p
    Rewards: None
    
    This battle is no harder than the first one you had.  However, 
    two new moves have been added to the Boss's repertoire.  The 
    first of them occurs when Darkside puts his fist in the 
    ground, causing an earthquake.  You can jump to avoid any 
    serious damage.  Right after this, he will pull his fist out, 
    and he will be holding an orb.  Smaller orbs will fall from 
    the sky.  They aren't that dangerous, however.  Lock onto 
    either his hands or his head when he kneels, and start 
    slashing away.  He should fall in just a few rounds.  If your 
    HP gets low, use POTIONS, or just wait for Shadows to be 
    summoned.
    ==============================================================
    After another cutscene, you will find yourself in Traverse 
    Town.   
    
    
    IV.	Traverse Town, 1st Visit
    
    Sora wakes up in an alley, with Pluto in his face.  Donald and Goofy 
    are here somewhere, and you need to find them.  Head into the 
    building on your right.  This is the Accessory Shop.  
    
    Inside, you will meet Cid, the pilot from Final Fantasy VII.  There 
    is a Save Point here, as well, and a MYTHRIL SHARD in the chest on 
    the cupboard.  You won't be able to buy anything just yet, because 
    you won't have any Munny.  Exit the shop and head right, up the 
    stairs and through the double doors into the Second District.  
    
    Once you reach the Second District, you will see a man get his heart 
    stolen by a Shadow, who then turns into a Soldier. Fight off the 
    enemies, and go back to the First District.  Here, walk around and 
    slay the Heartless.  Search thoroughly to find them all.  Once you 
    have defeated them, enter the Accessory Shop and save.  Exit back to 
    the First District and you will meet a guy named Leon, who is 
    actually Squall from Final Fantasy VIII.  He wants the Keyblade, but 
    Sora refuses to hand it over.
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Leon
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 120
    EXP: 30p
    Rewards: None
    
    You don't have to win this fight to proceed.  However, the 
    experience you can gain from it is extremely valuable, and far 
    outweighs other liabilities.  Leon will hurl fireballs at you, and 
    then approach you with his sword.  His attacks are slow and 
    predictable.  Hit Leon either right before or immediately after he 
    uses a fireball.  Leon has a tendency to evade the jump and slash 
    technique, so don't bother employing it.  If your HP gets low, use a 
    POTION.  Try not to use your HI-POTIONS so early in the game.  
    ====================================================================
    Whatever the outcome of the battle, you will meet Yuffie (from Final 
    Fantasy VII), who escorts you and Leon to the Hotel.  Once inside, 
    Leon will explain the purpose of the Keyblade, and also tell you 
    about the Heartless.  Meanwhile, Donald and Goofy meet up with 
    Aerith (from Final Fantasy VII), who tells them what she thinks 
    about the King's disappearance.  After the cutscenes, talk to 
    Yuffie, and then open the chest for an ELIXIR.  Save your game, and 
    then talk to Leon to signal for more action.
    
    You can follow Leon if you wish, but it is better to stay behind and 
    fight off the Heartless.  Soldiers are tougher than Shadows, but not 
    by much.  You are in the Alleyway.  To the left of the big stack of 
    crates is chest with a POTION.  Collect it and go back to the Second 
    District.  Take the only other door (around a corner) to the Third 
    District.  Here, go forward and you will meet Donald and Goofy.  
    Take out the Heartless and then get ready for another Boss.
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Guard Armor
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 700
    EXP: 110p
    Rewards: Brave Warrior
    
    The Guard Armor is comprised of several parts: Legs, Arms, Torso, 
    and Head.  Start by attacking the Legs and the Arms.  After you have 
    done a certain amount of damage, the parts will scatter and attack 
    individually.  They will reform after several minutes.  The Arms and 
    Legs yield HP orbs when defeated.  Use these to stay healthy.  Of 
    the orbs don't restore an adequate amount of energy, then use 
    POTIONS, but you should try to keep them for later.  Once the Arms 
    and Legs are out of the way, focus on the Torso.  Watch out for the 
    Boss's spin attack.  Don't worry about Donald and Goofy.  They will 
    heal themselves automatically.
    ====================================================================
    After the battle, Donald and Goofy become your permanent allies.  
    You will also receive 100 Munny and an ELIXIR from Leon, Yuffie, and 
    Aerith.  Your new teammates will give you the FIRE spell, the DODGE 
    ROLL ability, and BLUE TRINITY.  You now have a full party.  Watch 
    the cutscene.  Now, you can explore Traverse Town, or you can head 
    straight to Wonderland by boarding the Gummi Ship from either the 
    World Exit or a Save Point.  Fight some more Heartless if you want 
    extra EXP.  The best place to do this is the Gizmo Shop in the 
    Second District.  In the First District, you will find 2 Blue 
    Trinity Marks.  The one near the World Exit has several Munny orbs.  
    Head back to the Third District, and unlock the door that leads to 
    the First District.  In a small alley, you will find another door, 
    with a flame insignia.  Use FIRE to open it.  Inside, jump across 
    the floating rocks and approach the odd house.  Find the side 
    entrance.  You will meet Merlin.  Once he unpacks, talk to him.  He 
    will let you practice your magic.  You ca also talk to the Fairy 
    Godmother.  Use the Save Point and warp to the Gummi Ship.
    
    Note: if you are looking for the other POSTCARDS, check the 
    appendices at the end of this guide. 
    
    The Gummi Ship
    
    Watch the tutorial.  This small, colorful vessel is able to 
    transport you to other worlds.  You only have one available 
    destination.  As you fly through the air, you will pass other ships.  
    Shoot them and you will collect some augmentative equipment for the 
    Gummi Ship.  This will be useless unless you ever want to do some 
    remodeling.  After several screens, you will arrive at Wonderland.
    
    
    V.	Wonderland
    
    After landing, you will meet the White Rabbit.  He is late for a 
    very important date.  Follow him.  You will arrive in the Bizarre 
    Room.  Watch the cutscene.  Talk to the doorknob.  He will tell you 
    that you are too big.  On the table, you will see 2 drinks.  One of 
    them will make you small, and the other one will return you to 
    normal size.  Push the bed to your left before examining the drink. 
    Once you are tiny, you will fight some Heartless, one of which is 
    new: the Red Nocturne.  FIRE magic will heal it.  Remember the Green 
    Trinity Mark in the fireplace.  Head through the opening that was 
    hidden behind the bed.  
    
    Watch the cutscene, and then the Queen will tell you to collect four 
    pieces of evidence that can be used to prove that Alice is not 
    guilty.  Before you start this new quest, use the Save Point near 
    the entrance to the Bizarre Room, and then take the door to the left 
    of the Queen's Throne, near the red Card sentry.  
    
    You are now in Lotus Forest.  A cutscene will introduce you to the 
    Cheshire Cat.  The flowers in the Forest will drop hints if you give 
    them what they want.  The yellow flowers ask for POTIONS, and the 
    red flowers ask for ETHERS.  A couple of flowers might ask for 
    ELIXIRS.  
    
    Footprints: Head to the first opening on the right.  This leads to a 
    small alcove with a Blue Trinity Mark.  The Footprints are found 
    near the mark, in the pink box.  
    
    Antenna: At the back of the Forest, you will see three toadstool 
    pedestals.  Jump onto the shortest one, and then jump to the right, 
    onto the leaf pad. 
    
    Stench: From the shortest of the three toadstool pedestals, jump to 
    the left, and onto the leaf pad.  There is another pad you need to 
    leap to.  The gap may look daunting, but you can cross it without 
    much effort.  Keep in mind that Sora can grip the edges of most any 
    surface if he doesn't quite make it. Head to the platform with the 
    large red fruit (opening the chest along the way for PUPPIES), and 
    jump to the next leaf pad.  Go left to find a door.  This takes you 
    back to the Bizarre Room, but you fall from the ceiling onto the 
    fireplace, where the next box resides.  
    
    Claw Marks: Go back to the Forest entrance.  Approach the yellow 
    flower on your left.  Give it a POTION, and it will make you big. 
    Step on the wooden platform behind you.  This makes a new leaf pad 
    appear.  Now, remember the red fruit we passed earlier?  Well, it 
    can make you small again.  Lock-on to the big tree. Pick the fruit 
    and eat it.  Now, head to the back of the Forest, where the three 
    toadstool pedestals are.  Jump onto the smallest ones and then head 
    to the left, across the gap, past the fruit, and onto the next leaf 
    pad.  However, this time, instead of going left, head right.  The 
    new pad completes a path to another door.  Enter to fall onto the 
    faucet in the Bizarre Room.  From here, you can jump to the last 
    box.  
    
    Once you have all of the evidence, the Cheshire Cat shows up and 
    gives you the BLIZZARD spell.  Head back to the Castle and save you 
    game.  Then, talk to one of the two Card sentries standing in front 
    of the Throne to present your evidence.  The Queen will ask you to 
    pick a box.  The game seems to work in your favor, as there is a 
    fifth box that appears.  Choosing it will bring out a Heartless, 
    thus clearing Alice's name.  However, the Queen still doesn't 
    believe you for some reason, and orders her guards to take you out. 
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Card Guards/Tower
    Difficulty: Easy/Medium
    HP: not sure
    EXP: 100p
    Rewards: none
    
    As you can see, I have 2 difficulties listed for this battle.  If 
    you pick the second box, Donald and Goofy will be imprisoned during 
    the fight, which makes things a tad more difficult.  However, with 
    their assistance, you don't have to worry about the cards that much.  
    If you knock out the Queen, the Cards won't be as aggressive.  Your 
    main target is the Tower, which operates the chains that hold 
    Alice's cage.  Lock-on to one of the wheels and start attacking.  
    Destroy all three wheels to win the fight.  You can't actually 
    defeat the Cards, but you can stun them if they get too close. 
    Alice has vanished.  Apparently, she has been kidnapped.  Save and 
    then go back to Lotus Forest.  You will meet the Cheshire Cat again.  
    He tells you about some impending danger.  After the cutscene, you 
    will encounter some Heartless, one of which is a new enemy called a 
    Large Body.  These guys can take a lot of damage, and they can dish 
    it out, too.  Attack them from behind, and stay away when they pat 
    their stomachs.  You might try to strike their heads, as well.  Head 
    to the back of the Forest, to find that the boulder is gone.  Go 
    through the door to the Tea Party Garden.  If you get big again (by 
    giving a POTION to the yellow flower), you can push the boulder the 
    Cheshire cat was sitting on.  This will raise two new pedestals, 
    allowing you to reach a hidden area with a Blue Trinity Mark.  
    
    The Tea Party Garden has a picture of the Mad Hatter and the Hare.  
    There is also a sign that says "Very Merry Unbirthday to you". Sit 
    in all of the chairs for some new items.  Some chairs will force you 
    to fight Heartless. If the table disappears, exit the Garden and 
    come back.  Enter the house to find an inverted version of the 
    Bizarre Room.  Kill the Heartless, and activate the two table lamps 
    by touching them.  Now, go back over to the door with the latch.  
    Release the latch and enter the Queen's Castle.  Open the chest for 
    PUPPIES, and then use the Save Point, and go through the nearby door 
    to the first Bizarre Room.  In here, the Cheshire Cat will make his 
    final appearance.  
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Trickmaster 
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 600
    EXP: 150p
    Rewards: Ifrit's Horn
    
    This gangly Boss looks big and tough, but it goes down pretty 
    easily.  It will walk around the room, swinging its arms at anything 
    that gets close.  Stay away from it and let Donald and Goody do all 
    the work.  They will wear it down considerably.  Once they knock it 
    out, collect the Munny and HP balls, and then attack its head.  
    Alternately, you can stand on the table and use magic spells.  
    However, if you are on the table for too long, the Trickmaster will 
    hit the table into the ground.  
    ====================================================================
    After the battle, you will be able to seal your first Keyhole.  You 
    also receive a NAVIGATION GUMMI.  If you want, you can go back to 
    Traverse Town and stock up on items.  From Traverse Town, you can go 
    to Olympus Coliseum.
    
    
    VI.	Olympus Coliseum, Preliminaries
    
    At Olympus Coliseum, head across the courtyard and enter the double 
    doors to the Lobby.  Here, you will meet Phil, who asks you to help 
    him clean up.  Start by pushing against the large stone.  You can't 
    move it.  Talk to Phil a second time.  He tells you how weak you 
    are, but, he gives you a chance to become heroes. 
    
    Two trials
    
    For both trials, you have a certain amount of time to destroy a 
    series of strategically placed barrels.  
    
    Trial 1
    20 barrels in 30 seconds
    
    Take out all of the barrel groups, and then use magic spells to 
    break the remaining, individual ones.
    
    Trial 2
    25 Barrels in 1 minute
    
    From the start, drop to the lower section on the right, and head 
    around to the left, smashing all of the barrels along the path.  
    Then, take out the large groups, by targeting the barrel closest to 
    the center.  Finally, use magic to break any solitary barrels, 
    especially the one on the platform.  You can waste a lot of time if 
    you miss the jump.
    
    You get the THUNDER spell, but the stubborn Phil won't let you enter 
    the games.  Exit the Lobby.  Outside, you will meet Hades, who hands 
    over an ENTRY PASS. Take it to Phil. He reluctantly lets you sign up 
    for the tournament. 
    
    The Preliminaries
    
    Match 1: Shadow Scout
    Soldier x4
    Blue Rhapsody x3
    
    Watch the cutscene.  You'll meet Cloud Strife from Final Fantasy 
    VII.  
    
    Match 2: Sinisters 
    Blue Rhapsody x3
    Shadow x10
    
    Match 3: Heat & Freeze
    Red Nocturne x5
    Blue Rhapsody x5
    
    Watch the cutscene.  Phil will mention Hercules, who is away 
    visiting his father.  
    
    Match 4: Shadow Platoon
    Red Nocturne x3
    Blue Rhapsody x3
    Shadow x2
    Soldier x2
    
    Match 5: Blue Revenge
    Blue Rhapsody x9
    
    Watch the cutscene.  It seems that Hades has cut a deal with Cloud. 
    
    Match 6: Big One
    Large Body 
    Red Nocturne x4
    Blue Rhapsody x4
    
    Final Match: Cloud
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Cloud
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 300
    EXP: 80p
    Rewards: None
    
    As was the case with Leon, you don't have to win this fight to 
    proceed.  However, the experience makes it well worth the effort.  
    Cloud has two major attacks.  First of all, he will yell, and then 
    slide across the arena with his sword.  Use the Dodge Roll to avoid 
    damage, and hit him just after he has finished his dash.  Sometimes, 
    he will use a series of dashes, which makes things a little more 
    complicated.  Secondly, he jumps into the air, and slams his sword 
    into the ground, damaging everything in the immediate vicinity.  Use 
    the Dodge Roll to avoid this, as well.  Rely on Donald and Goofy to 
    keep you healthy, and if they are knocked out, dive into your POTION 
    supply.  If you are at level 10 or higher, this battle should be 
    more than manageable.  
    ====================================================================
    When Cloud is defeated, Hades sends Cerberus in to finish the job.  
    Hercules shows up and carries Cloud out of the Coliseum. Save your 
    progress, and then go and fight Cerberus. 
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Cerberus
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 600
    EXP: 200p
    Rewards: Inferno Band
    
    Cerberus is a very challenging Boss.  He has three heads, and you 
    can target each of them individually.  Lock-on to one of the outer 
    heads, as it will be easier to attack.  Donald and Goofy will get 
    wiped out pretty quickly in this battle (at least it seems that 
    way), so try not to rely on them.  Use POTIONS or HI-POTIONS (you 
    might have bought some more in Traverse Town) to keep your HP up, 
    and attack the beast whenever possible.  When you are close to 
    Cerberus, he will try to bite you.  He will spit fireballs at you, 
    which you can avoid with the Dodge Roll.  The worst attack is where 
    he spews black liquid, which then follows you around the arena in 
    small puddles.  Just keep running to stay out of harm's way.  There 
    are instances where you can actually jump onto Cerberus' back.  Wait 
    until its back leg is stretched out, and then climb on.  From this 
    vantage point, you can slash at one of the heads repeatedly.  
    
    After you beat Cerberus, Phil will give you the HERO LICENSE.  There 
    is nothing more to do here for the time being.  The Coliseum has to 
    be cleaned up, so come back later.  On your way back to the World 
    Exit, Sora meets Cloud, who gives you the SONIC BLADE ability.  
    After the cutscene, take the Gummi Ship to the next area.  You might 
    want to swing by Traverse Town and stock up on items, weapons, and 
    accessories.  And as always, it never hurts to go hunting for EXP.  
    
    
    
    VI. Deep Jungle
    
    
    As you approach this world, Sora and Donald will fight over the 
    controls.  Sora thinks that Kairi and Riku might be here; Donald thinks 
    that it is a waste of time.  The ship crashes and Sora is separated 
    from his teammates.  When he wakes up, he gets a rather nasty surprise. 
    ===================================================
    Boss: Sabor
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 90
    EXP: 15p
    Rewards: None
    
    Sabor is the most fearsome predator in Deep Jungle.  He will leap 
    toward you and swipe with his claws.  Use the Dodge Roll to avoid this 
    attack.  FIRE is the best course of action, since you don't need to be 
    close to cause damage.  If you run out of MP, finish him off with the 
    Keyblade.  You will encounter Sabor as a regular enemy from now on.  
    ===================================================
    Tarzan chases Sabor away, and becomes your new partner.  Steal all of 
    his equipment and keep it for yourself.  You will find that none of his 
    stats will be significantly affected.  Jump down onto the net 
    underneath the Tree House.   Then, jump off the edge, like Tarzan.  Use 
    the Save Point, and then jump into the tree stump.  This leads to a 
    mini-game called Jungle Slider.  Dodge or destroy the branches.  When 
    you finish the course, you will be in the Camp.  
    
    From your landing spot, you will see a Tent.  Enter and talk to Jane.  
    You will also meet Clayton, a suave British game hunter.  Sora will be 
    reunited with Donald and Goofy.  Use the Save Point.  Open the chest 
    for a MYTHRIL SHARD.  Jane is standing near a projector.  She has 
    apparently lost the slides, and you have to find them.  They are 
    scattered around the Camp.
    
    Slide 1: on top of Tent
    Slide 2: on green dresser, to left of Tent
    Slide 3: Near the easel
    Slide 4: On big stack of boxes in front of Tent
    Slide 5: On top of tent in row of tents
    Slide 6: Boxes near globe
    
    Once you have all 6 Slides, go back to the Tent and examine the 
    projector.  A series of images will come up.  Sora will claim that one 
    of the images feels familiar.  Tarzan will respond to another image.  
    At Sora's request, Tarzan agrees to take you to Kerchak, the leader of 
    the apes.   The oily Clayton seems to be all too eager to meet the 
    gorillas.  Save, and then put Goofy and Tarzan in your party.  Outside, 
    you will most likely meet Sabor again.  He is a little faster now.  Use 
    the same strategy as before, only this time, you will have some help.  
    Once the big feline runs away, check the Campsite for some special 
    notes about how to make a POTION and an ETHER.  If you complete both 
    recipes, you will get these items.  Take the right exit to the Bamboo 
    Thicket, and then the next exit to the Cliff.   Here, you will find two 
    chests: MEGA-POTION and MYTHRIL SHARD.  Now, head back to the Camp and 
    take the left exit.  
    
    You are now in the Hippo's Lagoon.  There are two vines here.  The 
    first leads to Vines 1, where you have to swing through a series of 
    vines.  This isn't hard, but it is tedious.   Instead of going through 
    all of this hassle, just go to the vine in the back of the Hippos' 
    Lagoon.  Jump on the hippos' backs to make it across the water.  There 
    are three chests in this area.  The only two you can get at this point 
    have a MEGA-POTION and PUPPIES.  
    
    The vine in the back of Hippos' Lagoon leads to Vines 2, where you will 
    see Kerchak.  Tarzan will plead with him, but to no avail.  After he 
    leaves, go back to the Tree House.  To get there quickly, climb the ivy 
    to your left.  You will be in Climbing Trees.  There are 2 doors here.  
    Head through the one near the Blue Trinity Mark.  When you reach the 
    Tree House, you will see Clayton aiming his shotgun at a cute little 
    gorilla.  He claims that he was killing a snake.  Yeah, right.    After 
    the cutscene, drop back down to the net under the Tree House, and get 
    the MEGA-POTION from the chest.  Then, head back to the Camp.    
    
    Sabor will come at you again.  Use the same strategy.  He will be 
    faster and more aggressive.  Once he's gone, enter the Tent.  Clayton 
    is being scolded by Jane, who is horrified to learn that he fired at a 
    gorilla.  He leaves, but not without revealing his true intentions.  
    Use the Save Point, and then exit the Tent.  Outside, you will hear a 
    gunshot.   As you head towards the right side of the camp, you will 
    encounter some new Heartless, called Powerwilds.  They are fast and 
    powerful.  Once you kill them, you will save a gorilla.  She gives you 
    a PROTECT-G.   Enter the Bamboo Thicket.  Fight off more Heartless.  
    You will save another gorilla, and get a FIRE-G.  Now, head to the 
    Cliff and defeat the Heartless there.  You get an AEROGA-G from the 
    gorilla.  Collect the treasures if you didn't already.  As you go back 
    through the Bamboo Thicket, you will find another new enemy: the 
    Bouncywild.   These things are fast and tricky to kill.  Magic is your 
    best bet.  They use slingshots, and often drop banana peels for you to 
    trip on.  Bouncywilds leave behind A LOT of Munny orbs.  As you pass 
    back through the Camp, fight off the Heartless, enter the Tent, and 
    save.  When you exit the Tent, you should find White Mushrooms.  These 
    are docile Heartless.  You will be rewarded if you help them.  Watch 
    what they do, and then use the corresponding spell.  
    
    Fire: shivers
    Thunder: light above head
    Blizzard: Mushroom on knees
    Cure: Lying on the ground
    Gravity: Floating in air
    Aero: Moving in circles
    Stop: no movement
    
    Go to the Hippos' Lagoon, climb the vine in the back, and climb the ivy 
    on the left.  You are now in Climbing Trees.  Kill the Heartless, and 
    receive AEROGA-G from the gorilla.  Now, go to the Tree House.  Again, 
    defeat the Heartless and save the gorilla.  You will get FIRE-G.  Head 
    back to the Camp, enter the Tent, save, and then exit.  Another shot 
    echoes through the air.  Go to the Bamboo Thicket.   Walk up to the 
    small platform in the middle of the area.  You will meet Sabor one last 
    time.
    ===================================================
    Boss: Sabor
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 180
    EXP: 150p
    Rewards: White Fang
    
    Sabor is a little tougher this time around.  He attacks ferociously.  
    Use the Dodge Roll to avoid his claw swipes.  When he lowers his head, 
    he will charge at you.  Dodge Roll out of the way.  Again, use FIRE, 
    and stay away from him.  If you run out of MP, go with a direct 
    assault.  Tarzan and Goofy will cause a lot of damage, as well.  Sabor 
    will often dash into the bushes scattered around the thicket.  Wait for 
    him to re-emerge and lock onto him again if necessary.
    ===================================================
    Sabor is gone for good.  Head back to the Camp.  Enter the Tent.  Jane 
    is gone.  Save, and then head to Climbing Trees.  Jane is huddled 
    behind a vine wall with a frightened gorilla.  The Heartless in this 
    area are infinite, so don't waste your time with them.  You can gain 
    quite a bit of experience here, though.  Attack the large, black fruit 
    to continue.  Watch the cutscene.  Enter the other door without the 
    Trinity Mark.  This leads to the Tunnel.  Collect the MEGA-ETHER.  Now, 
    go back to Camp.  Fight off the Heartless, enter the Tent, use the Save 
    Point, and then head to the Bamboo Thicket.  If there are Heartless, 
    fight them off, and then go to the Cliff.  
    
    It looks like Clayton's greed has gotten the best of him. 
    ===================================================
    Boss: Clayton
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 250
    EXP: none
    Rewards: None
    
    Clayton has sided with the Heartless.  Take out all of the Powerwilds, 
    and then go after Clayton.  He will shoot at you.  His bullets aren't 
    that damaging unless you are really close to him.  After about three 
    shots, he will either reload, or use a POTION on himself.  Also, at 
    some point, he will jump to the ledges above.  Stay on him and whack 
    him with the Keyblade.  
    ===================================================
    Now, Clayton jumps onto the back of some invisible creature.  The real 
    battle begins.
    ===================================================
    Boss: Clayton/Stealth Sneak
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 250, 750
    EXP: 30p (if defeated first), 240p (if defeated second)
    Rewards: Cure
    
    First of all, hit the Stealth Sneak until it throws Clayton off of its 
    back.  Now that they are separated, attack them individually.  Take out 
    the Stealth Sneak first.  Hit it with FIRE magic, or just slash it with 
    the Keyblade.  Use the Dodge Roll to avoid its laser attacks, and watch 
    out for its headbutt.   Once it goes down, go after Clayton.  He uses 
    the same pattern as before, and is actually easier to defeat.  Just run 
    up to him and use the Keyblade to knock him down.  He will most likely 
    end up being trapped between you, Goofy, and Tarzan.  
    ===================================================
    The Stealth Sneak collapses on Clayton, eliminating him once and for 
    all.  After the fight, Kerchak tosses you to a new area.  Enter the 
    Waterfall Cavern.
    
    In here, just jump from platform to platform, collecting the items 
    along the way.  They are a MYTHRIL SHARD, SHELL-G, MYTHRIL, and 
    ORICHALUM.  Go through the passage at the top.  After some cutscenes, 
    you will seal the second Keyhole.  You will also receive another NAVI-G 
    PIECE.    You will also get the RED TRINITY and the JUNGLE KING.  
    Follow Donald's advice and return to Traverse Town.
    
    VII. Traverse Town, 2nd Visit
    
    Disembark at the 1st District.  Since you have BLIZZARD, use it to put 
    out the candles on the tables.  This unlocks a chest with a DEFENSE UP.   
    Yuffie should be standing by the mailbox.  She tells you that Leon is 
    in the Secret Waterway, which can be accessed from the Alleyway.  Head 
    to the 2nd District and enter the Alleyway.   Use the Red Trinity Mark 
    to break through the bars.  Talk to Leon, who is practicing his sword 
    skills.  Watch the cutscene, and Leon will tell you about sealing 
    Keyholes.  Talk to Leon again, and Sora will ask him about the Gummi 
    pieces you have been collecting.  He says he doesn't anything, so he 
    directs you to Cid, who is a Gummi expert.  He gives you the EARTSHINE, 
    a gem that contains a summon creature.  Head up the stairs behind you, 
    checking the chest along the way for PUPPIES.  At the top of the 
    stairs, you will find a platform that takes you to Merlin's house.  
    Now, head back to the Third District.  Use THUNDER on the cables to 
    activate the Gizmo Shop.   You will meet some new Heartless: the Yellow 
    Opera, Green Requiem, and the Air Soldier.  The Yellow Operas cast 
    THUNDER, the Requiems cast CURE on other enemies.  The Air Soldier is 
    pretty tough.  Just take it down with jump and slash combos.  You will 
    also encounter a lot of Large Bodies.  Head back to the First District 
    and enter the Accessory Shop.  Talk to Cid.  He tells you about 
    Navigation Gummis, and even offers to install them for you.  Save your 
    game, and then deliver the OLD BOOK to Merlin.  Also, talk to the Fairy 
    Godmother to have the EARTHSHINE transformed to SIMBA, your first 
    summon spell.  Return to the 3rd District, and head towards the 
    abandoned house to the right of the door that leads to the 2nd District.   
    On your way there, you will be interrupted by Riku.  Watch the 
    cutscene, and then continue to the house.  Inside, you will find Cid, 
    Leon, Aerith, and Yuffie.  Speak with Cid, and he will modify your 
    Gummi Ship.  He will throw in a WARP GUMMI that allows you to revisit 
    any previously explored world, regardless of your current location.  
    Now, leave the house and head to the Gizmo Shop.  Fight off the 
    Heartless and head through the back door.  Climb the ladder, and break 
    through the boards using Red Trinity.  Pull the rope 3 times.  A 
    Keyhole is revealed.  Leon was right.  Approach the Keyhole to find 
    another Boss.
    ======================================================
    Boss: Opposite Armor
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 1200
    EXP: 390p
    Rewards: Aero
    
    The Opposite Armor is a beefed up version of the Guard Armor.  Start 
    off fighting it the same way.  Not long into the battle, the Boss 
    changes form.  Attack the Legs.  Once you've finished them off, go 
    for the Arms.  When the parts are destroyed, they drop lots of HP 
    and Munny orbs.  Be sure to collect them.  Once the Arms are gone, 
    focus on the torso, which doubles as a powerful cannon.  Avoid the 
    blasts by using Dodge Roll, and cast Cure if your health gets low.  
    A smarter strategy may be to stay away from the Boss, and use 
    THUNDER, which deals a moderate amount of damage.  However, keep an 
    eye on your MP, and try not to deplete it, as you will need to save 
    some for healing purposes.  If all else fails, don't be afraid to 
    use POTIONS.  
    =================================================
    Once you seal the Keyhole, you will get another NAVI-G PIECE.  Take 
    it to Cid and get the COMET-G.  Enter the Accessory Shop to save 
    your game, and notice that there is no clerk behind the counter.  
    However, there is someone lying on the floor.  This is Pinocchio, 
    and he has been separated from his father, Gepetto.   After the 
    cutscene, board the Gummi Ship, and you will find that a Warp Hole 
    has appeared.  However, there is also a new tournament being held at 
    the Coliseum.  Stop by there on your way to the Warp Hole.  
    
    
    VIII.	Olympus Coliseum, Phil Cup
    
    The Phil Cup consists of matches against teams of Heartless and 
    nothing more.  You won't encounter any Bosses like Cloud or 
    Cerberus.  You should be able to win this tournament very 
    quickly.

    Once you complete the Phil Cup, you will be rewarded with the 
    GRAVITY spell, as well as a championship plaque.  The next 
    tournament will be held later.   Next stop: Agrabah.
    
    
    
    IX.	Agrabah 
    
    As you enter Agrabah, you will see Maleficent and Jafar.  They 
    are looking for Princess Jasmine.  You will also meet Iago, 
    Jafar's annoying parrot.   After the cutscene, you will find 
    yourself battling a new breed of Heartless.  The Bandits use 
    swords, and are able to deflect blows.  The Shadows will be 
    tougher, as well, and they yield more experience.  Open the 
    chest for a MEGA-POTION, and then enter the wooden door to 
    Storage.  Use the Save Point, and then head back to the Plaza.  
    Go through the large, open doorway to Main Street.  Kill the 
    Heartless, and then head to your right, where you will find a 
    pole.  Climb the pole to Aladdin's House.  In here, you will 
    find another Save Point.  There is a carpet that is trapped 
    under a cabinet.  Free it and it will fly out the window.  
    Open the chests to find PUPPIES and a MEGALIXIR.   Exit the 
    room and re-enter.  You will see a man.  Talk to him, and you 
    can buy items.  He doesn't have a very wide selection, though.  
    On the wall across from the Save Point, you will find a 
    dresser.  Move it to find a small Keyhole.  Release the lock.  
    Jump out the key-shaped window.  You are back in the Plaza, 
    but higher up.  (If you jump to the ledge below the window, 
    you will find a chest with a MEGA-ETHER.)  To the right, you 
    will see some windows with wooden awnings. Jump on them to 
    reach the other side.   Go through the gate that you unlocked 
    with the small Keyhole in Aladdin's House.  It leads to Main 
    Street. (Across from this gate is a ledge with a chest and a 
    couple of Pot Spiders. Eliminate the spiders, then open the 
    chest for a COTTAGE.)  From Main Street, take the left path, 
    and enter the Alley.  Here, Jasmine will be hiding behind some 
    crates.  Jafar shows up, and Jasmine tells you to go find 
    Aladdin.  Take out the Heartless, and then jump on the crates 
    to reach the ledge above.  Get the MEGA-POTION from the chest, 
    and then release the small Keyhole.  Now, jump across the next 
    row of wooden awnings.  Head through the gate.  Go back to the 
    Plaza and exit to the Desert.  
    
    In the Desert, you will find the magic carpet, and a Save 
    Point.  Talk to the carpet, and it will take you to Aladdin, 
    who is trapped in quicksand.  Fight off the Heartless, and 
    Aladdin will join your party.  You may want to substitute him 
    for Donald for the battles ahead.  You will also meet Genie, 
    who has a hilarious introduction.  Back in Agrabah, you will 
    be ambushed by Heartless.  There will be a new one called a 
    Fat Bandit.  These things are fought just like Large Bodies, 
    only that they can breathe fire.  Kill them, and enter the 
    Storage room.  Get the MEGA-POTION behind the barrels.  Use 
    the Save Point.  Back in the Plaza, you will find that the 
    passage to Main Street has been blocked off.  To your left 
    (with your back to the Storage Room), you will see some 
    crates.  Use them to get to the ledge above.   Jump across to 
    the green cloth awnings, and enter the door to the Alley.  
    From here, jump across the wooden platforms and get back to 
    Main Street.   Jump down and enter Aladdin's House.  He will 
    comment on stopping Jafar.   Exit by jumping into the hole to 
    the left of the oval window.  Use the cloth awnings to reach 
    the unlocked gate directly across from Aladdin's House.    (In 
    front of this gate is a MEGA-ETHER).  It leads to the Bazaar.  
    Drop to the ground and battle the Heartless.  You might 
    encounter the Black Fungus, which is one of the game's most 
    frustrating enemies.  Each one is worth 96 EXP, but beating 
    them is a chore.  They attack you with poisonous gas.  Also, 
    they can become invulnerable for several rounds.  Use magic to 
    avoid getting close to them.  Fire is extremely effective.  
    Once they are defeated, use the crates to get back up top, and 
    release the last small Keyhole.  This opens the way to the 
    Palace Gates.  Near the Keyhole, there is a chest with a FIRA 
    RING.  Go back to Aladdin's House and save.  
    
    Again, jump into the hole to the left of the oval window.  
    Turn to the right, and jump to the yellow cloth awnings.  
    Enter the door.  You will be at the Palace Gates, with Jafar 
    and Jasmine.  Aladdin calls on Genie to save Jasmine, but 
    shortly thereafter, Iago steals the lamp.  Jafar will then 
    send a new creature to dispose of you.  
    ============================================
    Boss: Pot Centipede
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 600
    EXP: 250p
    Rewards: Ray of Light
    
    The Centipede is made up of two parts: the Head and the Tail.   
    Its Body is formed by a long line of Pot Spiders.  The Head is 
    your central target.  Once the Body breaks up, focus on the 
    Head while Aladdin and Goofy take out the Spiders.  The Head 
    uses THUNDER, and will also swipe at you with its antennae.  
    Avoid the Tail if you can.  It has tentacles that can cause 
    major damage.  Eventually, the Centipede will make its way to 
    another section of town.  Follow it and continue your assault.   
    There will almost always be a constant supply of orbs in this 
    battle, due to the high number of Pot Spiders that you can 
    destroy.  This provides you with lots of extra Munny and 
    health.  
    ==============================================================
    After the Centipede is defeated, Aladdin will tell you that 
    Jafar has undoubtedly taken Jasmine to the Cave of Wonders.  
    Go back to the Plaza, save your game, and then enter the 
    Desert.  You will get on the carpet automatically.   
    
    When you reach the Cave of Wonders, the large Tiger Head 
    (which serves as the entrance) will come to life!
    ============================================
    Boss: Tiger Head
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 380
    EXP: 400p
    Rewards: None
    
    The goal of this fight is to destroy the Tiger's eyes, which 
    are radiating with dark power.  However, to get to the eyes, 
    you are going to have to get onto the Head.  At some point, 
    the statue will bend to the ground, usually to release some 
    lasers.  Dodge these (or deflect them with the Guard ability), 
    and then jump onto the Tiger's nose.  Target one of the eyes, 
    and hit it as many times as possible.  The Head will rise back 
    up after a few moments, and you will get thrown off.  In the 
    meantime, help Aladdin and Goofy pummel the Heartless, most of 
    which are Bandits and Shadows, with the occasional Fat Bandit.  
    Collect the orbs.  Then, wait for the next opportunity to jump 
    onto the Head, and finish off the eyes.  
    ============================================
             After your victory, hop into the mouth and enter the Cave of 
    Wonders.
    
    
    Cave Of Wonders
    
    Remember the White Trinity mark to your left.  Walk forward 
    and kill all of the Heartless that appear.  To your right, 
    there are some steps that lead to the Relic Chamber, one of 
    several underground rooms we will be exploring in a little 
    bit.  Notice the large boulders that roll along the groove.  
    Avoid these at all costs.  On the platform with the barrel, 
    you will find a chest with a MEGA-ETHER.  Jump down from 
    this platform, and go through the door straight ahead.
    
    You are now in the Hall.  Kill all of the Heartless (there 
    are a lot of Air Soldiers), and head towards the blocks 
    that are spitting water.  More Heartless attack.  Take them 
    out, then use the barrel to jump onto the ledge above the 
    water jets.  Open the chest for an ELIXIR.  Now, jump to 
    the next platform, which is slightly curved.  Move to its 
    other end, and you will be very close to the door.  Jump to 
    the chest to the left of the door.  Open it for a MYTHRIL 
    SHARD.   Head back to the door that leads to the Entrance.  
    To the right, there is a staircase.  Go down it.  
    
    You will be in the Dark Chamber.  Use the Save Point. There 
    are no enemies down here; just lots of treasure.  Jump to 
    the chest directly across from the Save Point.  Open it for 
    a COTTAGE.   Swim towards the waterfall, and enter the 
    Silent Chamber.   The stairs in this room lead back to the 
    Hall.   You don't want to go back there yet.  Instead, swim 
    to the waterfall and be pushed down into another section of 
    the Silent Chamber.   Climb out of the water, and touch the 
    egg in the statue's hands.  This will open a new passage.  
    Let the waterfall take you back to the main part of the 
    Silent Chamber.  Now, go the steps I mentioned earlier, the 
    ones that lead to the Hall.   Drop into the water on the 
    right-hand side.  Swim into the Hidden Room.  Go up the 
    steps, and use FIRE to knock a section out of the pillar.   
    Watch the cutscene, in which Jafar orders Genie to reveal 
    the Keyhole.  Go back to the Silent Chamber and enter the 
    Hall.  Or, if you want, you can go back to the Dark Chamber 
    and enter the Hall from there.  Go back to the Entrance and 
    go down the stairs to the Relic Chamber.  Barely step into 
    the water, and a field icon will appear.  Choose the Call 
    option, and Aladdin's pet monkey (Abu) will touch the egg.  
    This lowers a staircase to the platform with the statue.  
    Swim across to the platform with the chest.  Get the 
    THUNDARA RING.   Now, go to the statue and enter the door 
    to the left.  
    
    You are back in the Dark Chamber.  Jump to the chest and 
    receive a SHELL-G.  Now swim into the waterfall.  You will 
    be a tiny area with another statue.  You can't reach the 
    egg because you are still in the water, so Call Abu once 
    again.  This will lower a section of the wall.  Open the 
    chest for a PROTEGA CHAIN.  Now, swim forward and go up the 
    steps.  Open this chest to get your first TORN PAGE.   Use 
    the Save Point, and exit back to the Hall.  
    
    Go to the door we ignored earlier.  Go through it.  You 
    will be in the Bottomless Hall.  This room earns its name 
    honestly.  Don't get in front of the jets.  Jump to the 
    ledge above them.  Defeat the enemies, and then open the 
    chest for a COTTAGE.  Go through the next door.  
    
    Welcome to the Treasure Room.  There should be some White 
    Mushrooms here.  Remember to help them and get a reward.  
    There are chests on top of the gold piles, but you can't 
    jump up there.  See the blocks on the ground near the 
    statues?  Well, if you touch the egg, these blocks will 
    blow you to the top of the gold piles.  Touch the statue on 
    the left, and gain access to a MYTHRIL SHARD.  From here, 
    jump to the stone platforms, and open the green chest for a 
    SHELL-G.   Touch the right statue to gain access to three 
    more PUPPIES.  Another green chest sits on top of a big 
    block to the right of the Save Point.  Collect the 
    treasures, save your game, and, if you haven't done it 
    already, substitute Donald for Aladdin.  Two Boss fights 
    are coming up, and they rely more on physical strength than 
    magical skill.  Enter the Lamp Chamber.  
    
    Jafar tells you about the importance of the Seven 
    Princesses, and then orders Genie to crush you.
    ==========================================
    Boss: Jafar
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 500
    EXP: 600p
    Rewards: Blizzara
    
    Jafar will float around the room using his staff to bombard 
    you with magic spells.  He has two main attacks.  The first 
    is where he unleashes a long stream of fire.  You can avoid 
    this easily, since it is concentrated in one spot.  The 
    other one is a tad more difficult.  Large chunks of ice 
    will spin rapidly near the center of the room.  Stay away 
    from them, because if you get caught in the middle, then 
    you will take lots of damage, and will be unable to heal 
    yourself.  Jafar tends to move in a counterclockwise 
    pattern.  He will stay high in the air, so use the gigantic 
    stone steps to get to him.  Sometimes, he will stand on of 
    these steps for several minutes, so hit him as much as you 
    can.  If you get too close, he will swipe at you with his 
    staff.  Genie isn't much of a threat.  He will perform a 
    few weak hand slaps, but you can tell that he isn't trying 
    his best.  Always stay locked on to Jafar, so you don't 
    lose sight of him, especially when he changes into a little 
    ball of smoke that can be hard to spot otherwise.  
    ==========================================
    After the battle, run across the room and approach the 
    unconscious Jasmine.  Before you can do anything, Jafar 
    makes his third wish.  He asks to be turned into an all-
    powerful Genie.  The floor falls out, revealing a massive 
    chamber below.  Jump into the hole to start the next fight.  
    You might want to go back to the Treasure Room and save 
    first!!

    Boss: Genie Jafar
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 800 
    EXP: 730p
    Rewards: Fira, Ansem's Report 1
    
    Jafar is not your target. It is actually his Lamp, which is 
    being carried around the room by Iago.  The weight of the 
    Lamp causes Iago to move slower than usual.  Lock on to the 
    loud-mouthed bird and follow him, jumping and slashing the 
    Lamp whenever you get the chance.  Sometimes, Iago will 
    stop and take a rest, leaving the Lamp completely 
    vulnerable.    You should just ignore Jafar.  He isn't much 
    of a threat, despite his size.  He will throw boulders at 
    you, which you can avoid with the Dodge Roll.  Don't fall 
    in the lava, and keep an eye on the other platforms, as 
    they move in and out like pistons.  
    ==========================================
    Sora traps Jafar within the Lamp, and someone kidnaps 
    Jasmine.  After you seal the Keyhole, the place starts to 
    collapse.  In the next segment (modeled after the final 
    stretch of Devil May Cry), you have to navigate the magic 
    carpet through the underground cavern, avoiding 
    stalactites, rocks that are falling from the ceiling, and 
    columns of fire that shoot up from the lava.  Collect the 
    HP orbs if you start having too many unwanted collisions.  
    
    After your daring escape, you will be back in Aladdin's 
    House.  He wants to go with you to find Jasmine, but he 
    can't.  Instead, he wishes for Genie's freedom, and sends 
    him with you instead in the form of a summon spell.  The 
    next cutscene will show Riku as the person who has been 
    snatching all of the young ladies thus far.  It seems that 
    he has cut a deal with Maleficent.  He brings her the 
    Princesses, and she helps him find Kairi.  Aladdin will 
    give you the THREE WISHES keychain, and you will also learn 
    GREEN TRINITY.  Go back to the Gummi Ship.
    
    Sora will suggest revisiting other worlds and unsealing 
    Trinity Marks.  Goofy will remind you of the Green Trinity 
    Mark in the Accessory Shop.  Head back to Traverse Town.
    
    
    X.	Traverse Town, 3rd Visit
    
    
    Disembark at the Accessory Shop.  Activate the Green 
    Trinity Mark to release a ladder.  Climb the ladder to 
    reach the Synthesis Shop, which is owned and operated by 
    Moogles.  Open the two chests for PUPPIES and a MYTHRIL 
    SHARD.  Talk to the Moogle on the table in front of the 
    chests.  He will explain the basics of synthesizing.  Now, 
    talk to the Moogle by the fireplace.   Synthesize one of 
    every item, if possible.  Exit the shop and re-enter.  Talk 
    to the Moogle by the fireplace again, and you should be 
    able to synthesize some more items.  If you don't have all 
    of the right ingredients, that's fine, but remember to come 
    back later.   The inventories of the Accessory and Item 
    Shops have been expanded.  Try to buy one of each new 
    accessory, and one of each new weapon.  This shouldn't be a 
    problem if you have been fighting a lot.   If you want to 
    conserve your finances, purchase a CHAOS RING (600 Munny), 
    and a BLIZZARA RING (1000 Munny), and maybe a PROTERA CHAIN 
    (750 Munny).  As for weapons, get the MAGUS STAFF (1000 
    Munny) and the GIGAS FIST (1000 Munny).  I think they are 
    better than the SILVER MALLET and GOLEM SHIELD, but you 
    might not think so.  It's all the same price, anyway.  You 
    might also want to stock up on POTIONS and HI-POTIONS, if 
    your stock is running thin.    Remember the TORN PAGE we 
    got in the Cave of Wonders?  Well, you can take it to the 
    OLD BOOK in Merlin's House and be introduced to the Hundred 
    Acre Wood.  However, it is best to save this world for 
    later, after you have collected the other pages.   Walk 
    through the Second and Third Districts to get extra 
    experience, if you want.  Save, and then board the Gummi 
    Ship.  Head back to Agrabah, but don't disembark.  You have 
    two choices: the upper path or the lower path.  The former 
    leads to Halloween Town; the latter leads to Atlantica.  
    This walkthrough covers Halloween Town before Atlantica 
    (for reasons of personal bias), but you can choose whatever 
    destination you want.  However, regardless of your choice, 
    you will first have to go through Monstro, a gigantic whale 
    who swallows the Gummi ship.  
    
    The decision you made earlier will only change his location 
    on the World Map.  If you were heading to Atlantica, then 
    he will appear between it and Agrabah on the lower path.  
    If you were heading to Halloween Town, he will appear 
    between it and Agrabah on the upper path.  
    
    
    
    XI.	Monstro
    
    After Monstro swallows you, there will be a flashback of 
    young Riku and Sora, as they prepare to explore the Secret 
    Place on Destiny Islands.  Riku is baffled by the presence 
    of a door, and tells Sora how much he wants to get off the 
    island.  When you awaken, you find Pinocchio, who managed 
    to get here somehow.   
    
    You begin in the Mouth.  Swim to the back of the area, 
    ignoring all of the treasure chests, wooden platforms, and 
    mountains of debris.  Watch the cutscene.  It seems that 
    Gepetto and his ship were swallowed up, as well.  During 
    your conversation with the kindly old man, Pinocchio 
    wanders off.  Follow him.  Use the Save Point first, 
    though. 
    
    Note: Monstro's inner chambers are very confusing.  There 
    are perhaps dozens of paths you can take, but only one of 
    them is correct.  It is mapped out in the section below.  I 
    will only mention chests that are found on this path, and 
    not those found on detours.  I will leave them for you to 
    find on your own.
    
    Chamber 1
    Pinocchio has met up with Riku, who wants to play a game of 
    hide-and-seek.  You will encounter a enemy: the Search 
    Ghost.  They are worth 10 EXP, and tend to appear in groups 
    of three or four.  They are easy to defeat, but watch out, 
    because they can vanish suddenly.  Jump onto the left ledge 
    and enter the door.
    
    Chamber 2
    Head to the opposite side of the room.  Get the COTTAGE 
    from the chest, and enter the nearby door.  
    
    Chamber 3
    You will enter this room on a platform.  Fight the 
    Heartless, but don't fall off.  If you do, you will have to 
    start back at Chamber 1.  Go through the nearest door. 
    
    Chamber 2
    You will land on another platform.  Go through the door on 
    your right. 
    
    Chamber 5
    Enter the door on the opposite side of the room.
    
    Chamber 6
    Proceed straight ahead, killing all of the Heartless in 
    your way.  After you walk down about three big steps, you 
    will see a chest.  Open it for a DISPEL-G.  Head out the 
    door to the right of the chest.
    
    Chamber 5
    Defeat the Shadows.  They are tougher, but are now worth 4 
    EXP each.  Open the chests for MEGA-ETHER and a DISPEL-G.  
    Use the barrel to reach the ledge up above.  Sora will grab 
    it and pull himself up.  Enter the door on this ledge, past 
    the Barrels.  
    
    Chamber 4
    Riku will have a chat with Maleficent.  Pinocchio runs into 
    the next room.  Shortly thereafter, you hear him yell.  You 
    don't need to use the Save Point.  
    
    Bowels
    A creature called the Parasite Cage has swallowed 
    Pinocchio.  Riku offers to help you out, so go for it.  
    ==========================================
    Boss: Parasite Cage I
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    HP: 450
    EXP: 500p
    Rewards: Cheer Ability (for Goofy)
    
    This is, quite simply, the game's easiest fight.  You have 
    three party members, and they can do all the work for you.  
    Riku can't be knocked out, and he bombards the Boss with 
    constant attacks.  Just stay on the sidelines and watch.  
    You may have to heal Donald and Goofy now and then, but 
    that is the only major role you have to play in this 
    battle.  The Parasite Cage has only one attack.  It will 
    try to swat you with its tentacles.  You can earn Tech 
    Points by deflecting these blows.  If you want to get 
    actively involved, you have two options.  You can stay at a 
    distance and use magic spells (FIRE being the most 
    effective), or you can do a direct assault by jumping and 
    slashing the creature's head.  This battle reminded me of 
    the Prison Cage from Final Fantasy IX.  That was the Boss 
    in the Evil Forest who kidnapped Dagger and Vivi.  About 
    the only difference is that the Parasite Cage doesn't drain 
    any HP out of Pinocchio. 
    ==========================================
    After your victory, a hole appears.  Jump into it to get 
    back to the Mouth.  The water level will decrease, 
    revealing a new platform with a Blue Trinity Mark.  Watch 
    the cutscene.  Riku plans on using Pinocchio's heart to 
    restore Kairi.  Open the chest near Gepetto to find the 
    HIGH JUMP, a shared ability.  Equip it immediately, and 
    collect the treasures scattered around the Mouth.  In no 
    particular order, they are: PUPPIES, WATERGLEAN, COTTAGE, 
    and a TORNADO-G.  Use the wooden platforms and the High 
    Jump to reach the door above the one that leads to Chamber 
    1.  
    
    Throat
    Ignore the Heartless and work your way up the platforms.  
    You may have to fight if too many enemies get in your way.  
    At the top of the room, you will be sucked into the 
    Stomach.  
    
    Stomach
    Riku asks Sora to help him save Kairi.  Sora refuses the 
    offer.  It looks like Riku and Sora are going to fight, but 
    they are interrupted by the Parasite Cage, who is back for 
    a second round.
    ==========================================
    Boss: Parasite Cage II
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 900
    EXP: 1000p
    Rewards: Stop
    
    You don't have Riku this time around.  Plus, the Parasite 
    Cage is much stronger than it was in the Bowels.  Its 
    tentacles deal more damage, and are harder to deflect, even 
    though it is still possible.  Avoid the yellow substance 
    that surrounds the central platform.  This is stomach acid, 
    and it will hurt you.  Stay on the smaller platforms, and 
    lock onto the creature's head.  Jump and slash combos are 
    most effective.  Use POTIONS or CURE magic when your HP 
    gets low.  After enough hits, the Parasite Cage will tilt 
    its head back, revealing an orb inside its mouth.  Attack 
    the orb as much as you can.  
    ==========================================
    After the fight, Pinocchio and Gepetto will be properly 
    reunited.   Watch the next couple of cutscenes.  Riku is on 
    Captain Hook's ship with Maleficent and a lifeless Kairi.  
    He is given the power to control the Heartless.  Your next 
    meeting with him won't be so pleasant.  Back on the World 
    Map, the Pegasus Cup will open up at the Coliseum.  But 
    first, let's go through Halloween Town.
    
    
    
    XII.	Halloween Town
    
    Sora, Donald, and Goofy are wearing costumes, so they can 
    blend in with the weirdoes who live in this world.  You 
    start at the Guillotine Gate.  There is a Save Point behind 
    you.  Use it, and remember its location, as you won't find 
    another one for quite some time.  Walk forward and go 
    through the large gate to Guillotine Square.  The fountain 
    is surrounded by Heartless.  However, they aren't moving 
    and you can't attack them.  Jump onto the ledge at the back 
    of this area, and go through the small gate to a courtyard.  
    Jump up the stairs and pull the string with the spider on 
    it 3 times.  You will get an ELIXIR.  Under the stairs is a 
    chest with PUPPIES.  Now, go back to the fountain, and walk 
    around for a couple of minutes.  A cutscene will introduce 
    you to Jack Skellington, who is in charge of preparing the 
    annual Halloween festival.  
    
    Jack has gone to see the Doctor.  Talk to the Mayor if you 
    want, and then enter the wooden door in the middle of the 
    back ledge.  This leads to the Lab Entryway.  Go up the 
    steps and enter the Lab.  
    
    Jack and the Doctor decide to create a heart.  However, you 
    need to collect some missing ingredients.  The first one is 
    memory.  To get it, you have to find Sally, who likes to 
    hang out in the Graveyard.   Jack is a pretty weak fighter, 
    so don't put him in your party.  Check the bookcase to get 
    a TORN PAGE.  As you exit the Lab, the Mayor will tell you 
    that the Heartless are out of control.  Return to 
    Guillotine Square.   From the Lab Entryway, head to Sora's 
    left, past the gate we entered earlier.  You will see a new 
    path to the left, where the brick wall ends.  Climb the 
    steps and go through the gate.  
    
    In the Graveyard, you will encounter a new type of 
    Heartless: the Wight Knight.  It is powerful enemy that 
    likes to attack you with its claws.  Several consecutive 
    hits can knock them out temporarily, and they are extremely 
    vulnerable to FIRE.  Once you clear out all of the 
    Heartless, you will meet Sally, and obtain the FOGET-ME-
    NOT.  Return to the Lab.  After you leave the Graveyard, 
    three little kids named Lock, Stock, and Barrel will climb 
    out of a large stone casket.  They heard about Jack's plan, 
    and are going to report it to Oogie Boogie, a big ghost who 
    causes trouble in Halloween Town.  
    
    The Doctor tells you that the last ingredient is surprise, 
    and suggests that you talk to the Mayor to get it.  
    Meanwhile, Lock, Stock, and Barrel have reported to Oogie 
    Boogie, who plans to steal the Heart and use it to control 
    the Heartless.  Return to the Graveyard.  .  Inspect the 
    coffin in the back of the Graveyard.  This leads to the 
    Boneyard, where you find a giant pumpkin and the Mayor, who 
    asks you to play a memory game.  Check the tombstones in 
    the order that the ghosts appear.  This is completely 
    random, but there are only three ghosts, so it isn't that 
    hard.  When you get it right, the pumpkin will explode, 
    revealing a chest with JACK-IN-THE-BOX.  If you mess up, 
    you will just have to do it all over again with a different 
    pattern.  To go back to the Graveyard, use the door behind 
    the pumpkin.  Return to the Lab.   
    
    Lock, Shock, and Barrel steal the Heart.  You have to get 
    it back.  After you exit the Lab, it looks like the brats 
    have managed to get away from you, but Jack calls on his 
    faithful dog Zero to track them down.  He flies off toward 
    the Graveyard.  In Guillotine Square, you will encounter 
    Gargoyles, which are similar to Air Soldiers, only much 
    tougher to defeat.  Keep an eye on them, because they will 
    transform into little balls of smoke and try to sneak past 
    you.  Head back to Guillotine Gate and save your game.   
    Now go to the Graveyard.  
    
    After the cutscene, fight off the Heartless, and examine 
    the coffin.  In the Boneyard, go through the door to the 
    right of the pumpkin.  You are now in Moonlight Hill, which 
    you will most definitely recognize from The Nightmare 
    before Christmas.  There are a lot of enemies here.  You 
    don't need to kill them all, but just enough to clear a 
    path to the large embankment.  There are a couple of other 
    things to note.  First, you will see another door in this 
    area.  If you examine, a message will appear that says 
    "Shut tight."  You can't open it 'til later.  To the left 
    of this door is a platform.  Use a FIRA spell to activate 
    it, and it can take you back to the Graveyard.   Inspect 
    the tombstone at the base of Moonlight Hill to proceed.  
    
    This is the Bridge.  On your left, you will find another 
    platform that can be activated with FIRA.  Walk forward and 
    eliminate the Heartless.  To the left of the Bridge are 
    some steps.  From the top of these steps, you will see a 
    chest on a platform.  To get it, move a little to the right 
    of the steps, and drop onto a gray platform.  From here, 
    you can jump to the chest, which contains PUPPIES.  
    Directly under the Bridge is another chest, which you can 
    open for a DISPEL-G.  Avoid the current, or else you will 
    be whisked back to Guillotine Square.  Cross the Bridge, 
    and enter the gate.
    
    You will now be at Oogie's Manor.  Head up the wooden 
    walkway to the door.  Open the green chest for an ETHER.  
    Head through the door, and turn right to find a Red Trinity 
    Mark.  Make sure you use it now, because it is temporary.  
    Open the chest for an ETHER.  Now, cast FIRA on the 
    platform to get to the higher levels of the Manor.   Head 
    up the next wooden walkway, and climb the stone steps at 
    the end.  Here, if you head to the left, you will a dead 
    end, and a birdcage with a chest in it.  I don't know of 
    any way to get this.  However, all of the items you don't 
    get now will be available later.  Head right, and up the 
    next wooden walkway.  Climb the short set of stairs, and 
    continue following the walkway.  At the end, you will see 
    some double doors.  Go on through.  
    
    Welcome to the Evil Playroom.  This is where Lock, Shock, 
    and Barrel spend most of their free time.  You have them 
    cornered, but they don't surrender easily.  
    ==========================================
    Boss: Lock, Shock, Barrel
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 150 (Lock), 120 (Shock), 180 (Barrel)
    EXP:  18p (Lock, 180p if beaten last), 12p (Shock, 120p if 
    defeated last), 24p (Barrel, 240p if defeated last)
    Rewards: None
    
    Shock is the girl dressed up like a witch.  She is the 
    weakest.  Lock is dressed up like a devil.  Barrel is the 
    one with the skull mask.  Save him for last, so that way, 
    you will get more experience.  The room is small, and so 
    are your targets.  This makes them immune to most of your 
    combos.   The three children will jump around a lot, and 
    hit you with spin attacks.  Barrel is considerably faster 
    than the other two, which makes him a bigger threat.  
    ==========================================
    After you beat the snot out of them, target the lever, and 
    hit it to open the door to Oogie's chamber.  You might want 
    to use the Save Point before leaving.   Outside, jump off 
    the right side of the walkway.  Hopefully, you will 
    continue to fall to the ground far below the Manor.  There 
    is a bathtub here.  Use it to get back to the front 
    entrance of the Manor.  Position yourself in front of the 
    door that leads to the room with the platform and the Red 
    Trinity Mark, and jump off the left side.  You should land 
    on a stone path.  At the end of this path is a green door.  
    Go through it.  
    ==========================================
    Boss: Oogie Boogie
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 450
    EXP: 2500p
    Rewards: Holy Circlet, Ansem's Report 7
    
    This fight is like a sadistic game show.  You are on a 
    giant roulette board.  Oogie is standing on the ledges 
    above you.  Avoid the dice he throws, and then prepare for 
    one of four different attacks.  First, Oogie will send a 
    pair of Gargoyles after you.  Defeat them quickly, and 
    collect the orbs and bubbles that they drop.  Secondly, 
    there is the Razor Wheel that moves across the room very 
    erratically.  If it comes toward you, either use Dodge Roll 
    or jump to avoid taking damage.  Thirdly, a trio of scythes 
    will drop from the ceiling and start rotating.  They bounce 
    up and down.  Running under them is a lot safer than trying 
    to jump over them.  Lastly, there are some statues with 
    guns.  When you see the statues lifting their guns, get to 
    a corner and hope that don't get shot.  After surviving one 
    of these attacks, the roulette table will begin to spin, 
    and several buttons will light up.  Lock onto Oogie Boogie 
    and watch where he goes.  Each button corresponds to a 
    different section.  When Oogie enters the section nearest 
    to you, step on the button, and iron fences will appear.  
    The part of the roulette board that you are standing on 
    will be elevated, allowing you to reach Oogie.  Pound him 
    mercilessly, using your most powerful combos.  After taking 
    enough hits, he will knock you back to the lower floor.  If 
    you don't want to wait for the buttons to be activated, you 
    can hurt Oogie by using magic and summon spells.  GENIE is 
    extremely effective, as is FIRA and THUNDARA.  GRAVITY 
    works, too, if Oogie doesn't move around that much.
    =========================================
    After the fight, as you are getting ready to leave, Oogie 
    will use the power of darkness to actually become the 
    Manor.  
    ==========================================
    Boss: Giant Oogie Boogie
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 40 per orb
    EXP: 2500p
    Rewards: Gravira
    
    You have to destroy the orbs.  There about half a dozen of 
    them, and they aren't too hard to find.  From the broken 
    bridge, jump to the ground, and look for a place where you 
    can start climbing.   You will see one of Oogie's feet.  
    The foot covers hole with several treasure chests.  These 
    are all of the items you missed in the Manor.  Beyond the 
    foot, you will see a spiral platform.  You can use it to 
    reach the first orb, and then continue from there.  It is 
    too confusing to describe the locations of each individual 
    orb.  Use the above sentences as a starting point.  Oogie 
    has only two attacks this time around.  The Gargoyles are 
    infinite, but you shouldn't fight them unless it's 
    absolutely necessary.  There is also a huge lantern that 
    swings backs and forth, releasing flames.  This can be a 
    major problem, as well, but you can destroy the lantern, 
    and eliminate the threat, in addition to getting about 200 
    extra points of experience.  
    ==========================================
    Oogie's Manor will be permanently destroyed.  Seal the 
    Keyhole.  Jack has to cancel the festival, but it is 
    probably for the best.  He gives you the PUMPKINHEAD 
    keychain.   Equip it immediately, as it has a long reach, 
    and increases your chances of dealing critical blows.  Now, 
    you can leave Halloween Town.  Go back to Traverse Town.
    
    
    XIII.	Traverse Town, 4th Visit 
    
    Synthesize any new items, and then visit the Accessory and 
    Items Shops.  The inventories are still the same as last 
    time.  Go back to Merlin and he will give you the 
    SPELLBINDER keychain.  It is a weak fighting weapon, but it 
    does increase your magic and summon power, and raises your 
    MP by two.  The Fairy Godmother will change the WATERGLEAN 
    into Dumbo.  Gepetto and Pinocchio are now living in the 
    First District, in a house just up the stairs beside the 
    Accessory Shop.  It has a very conspicuous green door.  
    Gepetto is very interested in Gummi blocks and he will 
    start giving you blueprints that allow you to build a new 
    Gummi Ship.  Open the chest to find the WISHING STAR 
    keychain.  Now, return to the Gummi Ship and head to the 
    Coliseum.

    fast.  She will throw ninja stars at you.  They seem to be drawn to 
    body heat or something, because you can barely shake them.  The 
    Dodge Roll is helpful, but it doesn't work all the time.  You can 
    deflect the stars with the Keyblade, but this requires immense 
    accuracy.  Yuffie will do backflips if you get too close to her.  
    Donald and Goofy will almost always keep Leon preoccupied, so he 
    shouldn't interfere with you and Yuffie.   Hopefully, you can trap 
    Yuffie in one of the arena's corners.  Then, you can use combos to 
    take her out.  If this isn't an option, then just follow her, 
    avoiding the projectiles as best you can, and hit her when you get 
    the chance.  Now, on to Leon.  His attacks are still very 
    predictable.   If he runs towards you, get out of his way by using 
    the Dodge Roll.   Hit him immediately after he swings his sword, and 
    try to get in a few good combos.  The Sonic Blade ability is very 
    effective here.  After sustaining enough damage, Leon's weapon will 
    become huge, and he won't hold back.  This new and improved Gunblade 
    has a long reach, and is difficult to avoid.   When Leon charges 
    you, jump over him.  He might use an upward slash to knock you out 
    of the air, but the timing of this attack is usually off by a few 
    seconds.  Try to nail Leon right after he uses an attack.  This is 
    when he is at his most vulnerable.  You might want to keep AERO cast 
    throughout the battle to improve your defense.  
    =================================================
    After you beat Leon and Yuffie, you will get the STRIKE RAID 
    ability, and the Pegasus Cup Trophy.  The next tournament will be 
    held after you complete the next couple of worlds.   Back on the 
    Gummi Ship, warp to Agrabah, and then take the lower path to 
    Atlantica.  
    
    
    
    XV.	Atlantica
    
    Atlantica is a world of water.  Donald claims that he can use his 
    magic to help you land safely.  Let's hope he's right.  Inside 
    Atlantica, you will meet Ariel, Flounder, and Sebastian.  You will 
    also notice that Sora, Donald, and Goofy have been transformed into 
    aquatic creatures (a merman, octopus, and turtle respectively).  
    After the cutscene, you will get to practice your swimming skills.  
    The controls are the same for flying.  In order to proceed, you have 
    to tag Flounder.  Just touching him will count.  Once you have 
    completed this task, Sebastian will compliment you.  However, the 
    congratulations are cut short by the Heartless.   These new enemies 
    (called Sea Neons) look like Jellyfish, and are really easy to 
    defeat.  THUNDER magic is extremely effective against them, but the 
    Keyblade works just as well.  After they are gone, Ariel comes back 
    out, and you can open the giant oyster (by hitting it with the 
    Keyblade) to release Sebastian and Flounder.  There is a Save Point 
    here.  Ariel invites you to her father's palace.  
    
    To get there, you have to follow the gold trident markings on the 
    wall.  The path is pretty straightforward, but there are several 
    siderooms you can stop in along the way.   Go straight ahead and 
    enter the Undersea Valley.
    
    As soon as you enter, you should see a red oyster.  Fight off more 
    Heartless, then open it with FIRA to get a MYTHRIL SHARD.   Beyond 
    this oyster, you should see a cave with another oyster.  Open it for 
    a MEGA-ETHER.   From the mouth of the cave, you should see another 
    oyster sitting on a rock below you. Descend to the bottom, and open 
    the oyster for a MEGA-POTION.   Go back to where the red oyster is, 
    and head to the right, past the whirlpool.  You will find another 
    oyster.  This one has an ELIXIR.  To the right is another oyster.  
    It contains a COTTAGE.    From this last oyster location, you should 
    see a Trident pointing down.  Drop to the bottom of the trench, and 
    enter the Calm Depths.  
    
    The currents are incredibly strong.  Let them transport you to an 
    area with a huge whirlpool and a group of Search Ghosts (hold right 
    on the controller to get to this area, or else you will end up 
    moving in a circle).  Defeat them, and head into the Undersea Cave.   
    Kill all of the Jellyfish, and then enter the small cave on the 
    left.  Open the oyster for a COTTAGE.  Now, float upwards and go 
    through the hole in the ceiling.  This leads to the Undersea Gorge.  
    
    Go forward and take out the Heartless.  You will see another large 
    trench.  Face the trench, and then drop to its bottom.  To the left, 
    you will see a blue oyster.  Use BLIZZARA to open it and get a 
    MYTHRIL SHARD.   From the blue oyster, head straight down the center 
    of the trench.  You will see another oyster sitting on a small 
    pedestal.  Open it and get a MEGA-POTION.   Now, look at the walls 
    and notice that a couple of tridents point to a hole.  This is the 
    passage to Triton's Palace.  
    
    In Triton's Palace, you will encounter a new enemy: the Screwdiver.  
    They are easily dispatched with the Keyblade, and they are worth 15 
    EXP each.   From the Palace entrance, turn left and descend to the 
    bottom.  Behind a big blue rock is an oyster.  It has a COTTAGE.   
    To the right of the entrance, at the bottom, is another oyster.  It 
    has a MEGA-ETHER.   Head forward to the large shell with the White 
    Trinity Mark inside.  To the right of this structure is a yellow 
    oyster.  Use THUNDER to open it to receive a MYTHRIL SHARD.   To the 
    left of the shell is an oyster with an ELIXIR.   With these items in 
    hand, follow the road to Triton's Throne.
    
    The king of Atlantica uses his mighty Trident to obliterate some 
    pursuing Heartless.  He greets you with some apprehension, claiming 
    to know nothing about the Keyhole.  He grounds Ariel, who promptly 
    escorts you out of the Palace.  You can go back to the Throne if you 
    want, but it isn't necessary, unless you want to use the Save Point 
    found in the oyster to the left of Triton's Throne.   Go back to the 
    Undersea Gorge.  
    
    Here, you can follow Ariel into her Grotto.  She shows you the 
    treasures that she has collected over the years.  On the floor 
    beneath Flounder is a chest with a MEGA-POTION.  On the fourth 
    shelf, you will find a chest with a COTTAGE.  On the fifth shelf is 
    a chest with a TORN PAGE.   As you leave the Grotto, you will learn 
    that you are being watched by Ursula and her two slithery eels, 
    Jetsam and Flotsam.  You next destination lies beyond the Calm 
    Depths, but to get there, you are going to have to hitch a ride on a 
    big fish that looks like a dolphin.  You will see the fish in the 
    Undersea Gorge.  It won't cooperate with you until you defeat all of 
    the Heartless in the area, so keep that in mind.  Head back to the 
    Undersea Valley.  Don't worry; the fish will be there eventually.   
    Along the way, you will see a new enemy, a Sheltering Zone.  Attack 
    it and kill it to earn 20 EXP, but watch out, because it breaks up 
    into three Sea Neons.  
    
    Ride the fish to the Sunken Ship.  Inside this chamber, head through 
    the hole on the side of the ship.  Go to the right and approach the 
    chest.  A shark will come crashing through the big window.  Once 
    it's gone, open the chest and get the CRYSTAL TRIDENT.  The other 
    chest in here has a MYTHRIL SHARD.  Back outside, you will bump into 
    the Shark.
    =================================================
    Boss: Shark
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 150
    EXP: 100p
    Rewards: None
    
    The Shark isn't really a Boss, but it is tougher than a regular 
    enemy.  It can only damage you by biting, so stay to its side, and 
    slash away with the Keyblade.  Or, if you want, you can stay at a 
    distance and use magic spells like FIRA.  You won't take much damage 
    from this fight.  The Shark, like Sabor, will appear a few more 
    times as you travel around Atlantica.  I encountered him in the 
    Undersea Valley and Tranquil Grotto, but he might show up elsewhere, 
    I am not sure.  He will ALWAYS be in the Sunken Ship area if you 
    make multiple trips. 
    
    Once the Shark is gone, go back to Ariel's Grotto.  To do this 
    easily (and make a much more convenient path), exit through the door 
    near the bottom of the area, opposite the entrance to Calm Depths.  
    In here, you will see a rock formation.  Hit it with the Keyblade to 
    reveal a whirlpool.  Swim into it and be shot up through a hole back 
    into the Undersea Gorge.  Ariel's Grotto is immediately on your 
    right.   
    
    Inside, approach the Trident mark.  The CRYSTAL TRIDENT fits nicely, 
    but Triton shows up and destroys it.  After Ariel storms off, he 
    will tell you that you are from another world, and that Sora must be 
    the key bearer.   After this, Ariel will be visited by Ursula.  The 
    Sea Witch tells the naive mermaid that she can help her get to other 
    worlds.  After the cutscene, head back to the Palace.  Ursula 
    convinces Ariel to take her to the Throne Room, where she can get 
    her hands on the Triton's Trident.   Head to the Throne.  Ariel 
    realizes that she has been deceived, and you arrive a little too 
    late.  Triton is in bad shape.  You have to get the Trident back.  
    Use the Save Point, and then return to the Sunken Ship.  Before you 
    leave, Triton will tell you the secret of Ursula's power.  This will 
    be extremely helpful later on.   Back in the Palace, you will meet 
    up with the Aqua Tank, which carries around trios of Screwdivers.  
    
    Back at the Sunken Ship, fight off the Shark, and collect some extra 
    items.  A MYTHRIL SHARD can be found in a chest inside of an 
    overturned boat at the bottom of the area.  Enter through the large 
    hole.  To the right of this boat is a piece of debris.  Behind the 
    debris lies another chest with another MYTHRIL SHARD.  Now, from the 
    overturned boat, head left, and wrap around the ship.  You will see 
    a rock with a marking on it.  To the left of this rock is another 
    piece of debris.  The debris hides a switch.  Examine the switch and 
    Sebastian will press it.  The rock slides away, revealing a new 
    passage.  Enter the Den of Tides.
    
    Swim straight ahead, killing the Search Ghosts as you pass.  You 
    will see two paths.  Take the right one and follow it to the Cavern 
    Nook.  Here, open the small oyster to get a MEGA-ETHER and the big 
    one to find a Save Point.  Use it, and make sure that Goofy has MP 
    Gift equipped.  Now, head back to the left path, and follow it to 
    the Tidal Abyss.   Go down this tunnel to find Ursula's Lair.  
    =================================================
    Boss: Ursula, Jetsam, Flotsam
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 450 (Ursula), 60 each for Jetsam and Flotsam
    EXP: 1000p
    Rewards: Mermaid Kick 
    
    This is perhaps the most confusing battle in the entire game.  There 
    are four targets: Jetsam, Flotsam, Ursula, and the cauldron that 
    sits in the middle of the room.  As Triton said, Ursula draws power 
    from her cauldron.  Lock onto the cauldron and use a magic spell.  
    FIRA, THUNDER, and BLIZZARA are your only three options.  This, of 
    course, begs the question of when to use the aforementioned spells.  
    As far as I know, the cauldron will alternate between two colors, 
    blue and red.  When it's blue, a gigantic whirlpool appears, and 
    will suck you in if you get too close.  When it's red, rocks will be 
    hurled at you.  In these instances, you want to cast the opposite 
    spell.  Blue signifies water, which can be counteracted with FIRA.  
    Red signifies fire, which can be counteracted with BLIZZARA.   If 
    this is done successfully, Ursula will be stunned.  At this point, 
    hit her with as many combos as you possibly can.  When she regains 
    consciousness, get away from her.  If you attack her when she isn't 
    knocked out, she will start spinning around the room, slapping you 
    with her tentacles.  This inflicts a lot of damage.  Jetsam and 
    Flotsam are nothing more than a nuisance.    Use them to refill your 
    MP gauge if it is nearing depletion.  Ursula will CURE them pretty 
    frequently.  Remember to take full advantage of the MP Gift ability.  
    =================================================
    After the fight, Ursula leaves through an opening on the back wall.  
    She still has the Trident, so you have to follow her.  However, you 
    can't go the same way she did.  Head back through the Tidal Abyss 
    and the Den of Tides, stopping by the Cavern Nook to save your game.  
    Go back to the Sunken Ship.   Fight off the Heartless, and make sure 
    that you have MERMAID KICK equipped.  Enter the Calm Depths.   
    
    Press the Circle Button to swim against the current, and head left, 
    entering the cave on your right.    Inside this mysterious chamber, 
    Ursula will morph into a giant as she prepares to crush you once and 
    for all.
    =================================================
    Boss: Giant Ursula
    Difficulty: Hard
    HP: 900
    EXP: 1500p
    Rewards: Thundara, Ansem's Report 3
    
    There really isn't much of a strategy for this battle, because your 
    success depends on how strong you are, and how much time you have 
    spent leveling up.  I say this because Ursula constantly attacks 
    with powerful magic, and in order to win, you are going to have to 
    stage a merciless frontal assault.  Cast AERO, swim right up to 
    Ursula's face, and slash her with the Keyblade, using combos as 
    often as possible.  You might try to maneuvering behind her head, or 
    at least to the side of it.  This way, you can attack her with 
    relative safety, and you will avoid the beams that shoot out of her 
    mouth.   Like Andross in Star Fox 64, Ursula will draw a big breath, 
    and you will be drawn towards her.  Press the Circle Button to swim 
    away, or else she will bite you.  When AERO runs out, get away from 
    Ursula and heal yourself, recast AERO, and then go in for the kill.   
    Don't worry about Donald and Goofy during this fight.  Chances are 
    that they won't last too long.  Revive them if they get knocked out, 
    but don't waste your restorative items and magic on them beyond 
    that. 
    =================================================
    Ursula has been defeated, and Ariel returns the Trident to her 
    father.  Triton tells you that the Keyhole is in Ariel's Grotto.  
    Before you enter the Grotto, though, check the big wooden box that 
    previously blocked the path to the Sunken Ship.  This is actually an 
    enormous treasure chest.  There must something really nice inside, 
    right?   Not really.  You will just get an ORICHALUM.   Once you 
    seal the Keyhole, Ariel gives you the CRABCLAW keychain.  Return to 
    Triton's Throne and save.  Then board the Gummi Ship.
    
    You can go back to Traverse Town if you want.  Pay a visit to the 
    Dalmatians' House and be rewarded for the PUPPIES you have collected 
    thus far.   Drop by and see if Gepetto has any new blueprints, and 
    shop for items, accessories, and weapons.  Also be sure to check out 
    the Synthesis Shop.  Now, warp to Atlantica, and go to the next 
    world.  
    
    
    XVI.	Neverland
    
    On your way to Neverland, a pirate ship appears.  Watch the series 
    of cutscenes.  Riku shows off his dark powers, and then throws Sora 
    into the hold with Donald and Goofy.  You will meet Peter Pan, who 
    has come here to save Wendy.   Tinkerbell shows up and lets you out 
    of your prison.  Use the Save Point before exiting.  You can put 
    Peter in your party if you want to.   Outside, you will encounter 
    two new enemies.  First is the Pirate, which is the stronger cousin 
    of the Bandit you fought back in Agrabah.  Secondly, there is Shadow 
    Sora.  This thing really isn't that dangerous, but it is hard to hit 
    because it floats around at high altitudes.  Defeating the Shadow 
    Sora is a top priority, because each one is worth 150 EXP.  Climb up 
    the ladder, and enter the door on your right.  In this room, kill 
    off the Heartless and jump into the hole.  There are a lot of 
    enemies here.  Vanquish them all and go up the ladder on the other 
    side.  A cutscene plays.  Goofy will ask why Peter can fly.  
    Tinkerbell sprinkles pixie dust on your party.  You find out that 
    Wendy is not one of the seven princesses that Maleficent is looking 
    for.  However, Captain Hook wants to keep her just so he can settle 
    his vendetta with Peter.  Sora sees Kairi, but before he can do 
    anything, she (and Wendy) are whisked off by Hook's cronies.  
    
    When you regain control, you will be in the Galley.  Open the chest 
    for a DISPEL-G.   Head past the door and jump onto the shelves on 
    the back wall.  You will see two holes in the netting above you.  
    Jump through the hole on the right to get to the Cabin.  Here, you 
    will find a Save Point and a Green Trinity Mark, which releases a 
    ladder.  Climb it.  Be sure to save before doing so. 
    
    You will be in Hook's chamber.  Watch the cutscene.  Riku leaves 
    behind a nasty surprise.
    =================================================
    Boss: Dark Sora
    Difficulty: Hard
    HP: 750
    EXP: 2500p
    Rewards: Raven's Claw
    
    I call this Boss Dark Sora to separate it from the Shadow Soras you 
    fought earlier.  As you might expect, it is much, much harder.   It 
    uses all of Sora's attacks, and, by now, you should know what those 
    are.  Its combos are deadly, so watch out for them.  You can parry a 
    lot of its blows if you have the Guard ability.  You can earn about 
    40 Tech Points for doing this.  Donald and Goofy will be killed a 
    lot during this battle.  Use POTIONS and CURE to stay healthy.  
    Dodge Roll when Dark Sora charges you, and reactivate your lock-on 
    after it has vanished into the floor.   Near the end of road, Dark 
    Sora will spawn clones of itself.  They are identical, but the fake 
    ones disappear with one hit.   A better way to differentiate between 
    them is by paying attention to the HP gauge, as seen with the Scan 
    ability.   Strike Raid works wonders here, as it allows you to 
    inflict a lot of damage very quickly.  The worst case scenario is 
    dragging this battle out until your MP is depleted, your teammates 
    are knocked out, and you have used up all of your items.  If this 
    happens, you might as well forfeit, or pray for Lady Luck to help 
    you out.  
    =================================================
    After the battle, open the green chest on the bed for PUPPIES.  Now, 
    inspect the trap door on the left side of the room, in front of the 
    sofa.  Peter has found Wendy.  After he leaves, open the chest for a 
    PROTEGA CHAIN and then use the Save Point.  Go through the door.  
    You are back in the room with three doors.  Head to your right and 
    jump through the hole.  Welcome back to the Galley.   Jump onto the 
    shelves and up through the right hole.  Use the Save Point, and then 
    climb the ladder.  You have returned to Hook's chamber.  Exit 
    through the door beyond the trap door.  
    
    Hook tells you that Riku has gone to Hollow Bastion, and then he 
    gives you a choice: you can give him the Keyblade, or you can walk 
    the plank.  However, before he passes judgment upon you, the 
    Crocodile shows up.  You know, the one that took his hand.  Hook 
    runs off like a schoolgirl, leaving Smee to take care of you.  
    Things look grim for Sora, but Peter intervenes, saying that you can 
    fly if you just believe in yourself.  Sure enough, that's what 
    happens.  Peter frees Tinkerbell, and Smee flees.  You are left to 
    deal with a cadre of Heartless. Before you start fighting, CURE will 
    be upgraded to CURA.  Use your new aerial powers to kill them all.  
    Watch out for the Battleship.  It is worth 100 EXP, but can be 
    difficult to defeat.   It will drop missiles as it flies past you, 
    and, if you get close to it, it will charge with its mast.  You can 
    see this attack coming, however, so you can dodge it pretty easily.   
    Once the Heartless are gone, watch the cutscene and get ready to 
    rumble with Captain Hook.
    =================================================
    Boss: Captain Hook
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 900
    EXP: 3400p
    Rewards: Ars Arcanum, Ansem's Report 9
    
    This battle is purely physical, so Peter may be better suited for it 
    than Donald.  Hook will repeatedly summon Battleships to assist him, 
    and they can prove to be annoying if you left unattended for long 
    periods of time.  Plus, if you destroy them, you will get a lot of 
    extra EXP and Munny.   Hook is fairly skilled with a sword, and, 
    like with Dark Sora, you can deflect his blows to earn about 35 Tech 
    Points.  Even though he can't fly, Hook has an insane jump that 
    usually deposits high above the ship.  Get up there and lay into him 
    with furious Keyblade slashes and combos.  Strike Raid works well 
    here, too.  You can also press Triangle to have Peter and Goofy gang 
    up on Hook, and then you can just pummel him into submission.  If 
    you use this strategy, and your HP drops too low, then you can pull 
    back and use a POTION or your new CURA spell before continuing your 
    assault.  
    =================================================
    After your victory, Hook falls into the waters below, and gets 
    chased into the horizon by his reptilian nemesis.  Sora says that he 
    is determined to find Kairi, and Tinkerbell escorts you to the Clock 
    Tower.  There is a Save Point here, as well as a chest with more 
    PUPPIES.  Before you do anything else, make sure that Sora equips 
    the ARS ARCANUM ability, which is one of the best in the game.  With 
    that out of the way, get airborne and descend to the clock faces.  
    Stop when you get to the one that isn't set to midnight.  Lock onto 
    it, and hit it three times.  The Keyhole is revealed.  Seal it, and 
    get the last NAVI-G PIECE.  After a series of cutscenes, Peter sends 
    TINKERBELL with you, and you also get the FAIRY HARP keychain, as 
    well as GLIDE, an enormously helpful shared ability.  Return to the 
    Save Point above where Wendy is standing, and board the Gummi Ship.  
    Another tournament has opened up at the Coliseum; but first, let's 
    finish our mandatory trip to Traverse Town.  
    
    
    XVII.	Traverse Town, 5th Visit
    
    Disembark at the First District and go talk to Cid.  He will go 
    install the second navigation Gummi.  While he's gone, Sora, Donald, 
    and Goofy will have a nice talk.  Additionally, Sora will see Kairi 
    as a little girl, being told a story by an old woman who must be her 
    grandmother.  Of course, this scene doesn't take place in the 
    Destiny Islands.  This is, in fact, Kairi's home world.  Cid returns 
    and you are ready to go to Hollow Bastion.  Before departing, visit 
    the shops, the Dalmatians' House, and Gepetto, to see if he has any 
    new blueprints.  Back on the World Map, go to Olympus Coliseum.

    Unlike last time, you can't lose this battle and proceed.  Cloud has 
    beefed up considerably, and he will crush you if you come 
    unprepared.  You need two abilities to win this fight: Guard and Ars 
    Arcanum.  Use Guard to deflect his basic sword slashes, and earn a 
    generous surplus of Tech Points.  He will perform a series of high-
    powered charges, which will most likely annihilate Donald and Goofy.  
    Don't worry about reviving them right now.   Focus on Cloud, and, 
    since you removed Dodge Roll in favor of Guard, you have to jump 
    over him as he rushes toward you.  When he leaps into the air, he 
    will drive his sword into ground, causing damage to everything in 
    his vicinity.  It covers a larger area than it did in the 
    Preliminaries.  After he has done this attack, get behind him, and 
    unleash Ars Arcanum.  You should shave off a nice percentage of his 
    HP meter.  Keep yourself healthy with HI-POTIONS and CURA, and don't 
    be afraid to cast AERO if things get rough.  Near the end of battle, 
    Cloud will surround himself in orange lightning, and fly around the 
    arena.  He is invincible during this phase.  You can usually nail 
    him with Ars Arcanum as soon as he lands.

    When Hercules is yellow, he is invincible.   To counteract this, 
    pick up a barrel and chuck it at him.  This occasionally stuns him.   
    Move in and use Ars Arcanum.  He will probably go invincible again.  
    He has a punch that he can use to destroy some of the barrels, but 
    if they run out, more will be supplied.  When he uses the headbutt, 
    deflect it with Guard to get 13 Tech Points.  Plus, this will stun 
    Hercules, giving you another chance to use Ars Arcanum.   When he 
    spins around with his sword, use Guard to protect yourself.  Watch 
    out for the shockwave and the blast shield, which are two attacks he 
    will use just after he becomes invincible.  Don't get caught in 
    these, because they cause a lot of damage.  
    =================================================
    You have now completed all of the Coliseum's regular tournaments, 
    but you aren't completely finished yet.  Hercules congratulates you, 
    and you will get YELLOW TRINITY and the OLYMPIA, which you should 
    equip immediately.  Use the Yellow Trinity Mark near the big stone 
    to reveal a Keyhole.  Seal it, save, and then return to the Gummi 
    Ship.  
    
    
    
    XX.	Hollow Bastion, 1st Visit
    
    Use the Save Point, and then jump up the floating platforms.  Now 
    it's time for one of the game's most important cutscenes.  Donald 
    and Goofy go with Riku and Sora is left with the Toy Sword.  
    However, the Beast is determined to find Belle, and he offers to 
    accompany you through the castle.  Collect the chests in this area.  
    Use the Glide ability to reach the three on the platforms.  Another 
    one is located below the platforms on the solid water, and the last 
    one is found under the solid water surface.  Get it by using the 
    large bubbles.  Once you are finished, head past the place where you 
    encountered Riku, and climb the stairs to the Castle Gates.    A 
    platform appears to take you to the Castle.   
    
    Turn to your right, and head through the gate.  Examine both 
    pedestals to make another platform appear.  It transports you to the 
    Base Level.   Down here, you will meet a new type of Heartless, the 
    Darkball.  They like to teleport from place to place.  You can cause 
    damage with the Toy Sword, but not that much.  Let the Beast do all 
    of the attacking.  He can usually take out enemies with one hit.  
    Jump into the right bubble and enter the Waterway.   Near the Save 
    Point is a chest.  Open it for a FIRAGA RING.  To your left, you 
    will notice a wall.  Call the Beast to break through it.  Use the 
    bubble to get to the next area.  Another wall on your left.  Behind 
    it is the Dungeon.  There are several enemies in here, and you don't 
    have much room to fight.  Open the two chests for FLOAT-G.  Back in 
    the Waterway, you will see a series of gates and switches.  
    
    From the Dungeon's doorway, go left around the wall to find the 
    first switch.  Release it, and head forward to the next switch.  
    Release this switch.  A gate will close behind you, but open up a 
    chamber to your right.   Release the next switch, and another 
    passage will be revealed.  There is a big switch sitting on the 
    ground.  Release it to open the gate to your right.  Walk through 
    and jump into the bubble.  Release the next switch to activate a 
    lift.  Ride the lift to the area above you.  You will see one final 
    switch.  As you approach it, a Defender will appear.  These are some 
    of the toughest Heartless.  They hold shields in front of them, so 
    you'll have to attack them from behind.  Again, the Beast will 
    destroy this creature.  Release the switch, and open the Castle's 
    main entrance.  
    
    Go back through the maze, releasing all of the switches a second 
    time, putting everything back the way it was.  Use the Save Point in 
    the Waterway, and then exit to the Base Level.  
    
    Fight off the Heartless, and then examine the pedestal to get back 
    up to the Castle Gates.  Head up the steps and turn right.  Kill the 
    Heartless, and go through the double doors.   Riku has changed his 
    attire.  An act of arrogance costs him the Keyblade, and the 
    allegiance of Donald and Goofy.  
    =================================================
    Boss: Riku I
    Difficulty: Easy

    EXP: 2000p
    Rewards: White Trinity
    
    Sora finally gets to face off against his old friend and rival.  
    This battle is surprisingly easy if you remember two essential 
    things.  First, Riku is immune to magic.  Save your MP for CURA and 
    AERO.  Secondly, Riku will focus almost all of his attention on 
    Sora, so Donald and Goofy probably won't distract him.  As you might 
    have guessed, he is exceptionally fast, and can be on you in a 
    heartbeat.  This fight can't be won with passiveness.  Cast AERO, 
    and when Riku gets close, use Guard to deflect his blows.  This will 
    stun him for a few seconds, so run up to him and use Ars Arcanum.    
    This is really all there is to beating him.  When he leaps into the 
    air, you can follow him, and try to get in a few hits with the 
    Keyblade, or you can simply Glide out of harm's way.  
    =================================================
    Keep your party the way it is.  The Beast is a lot stronger than 
    Donald, but he has almost no MP.  Head up the left side of the 
    stairs.  At the top, turn to your left and follow this hallway until 
    you reach the door on your right.  This leads to the Library. 
    
    The Library is the place where Sora saw Kairi talking to her 
    grandmother back in Traverse Town.  Head forward, and then turn left 
    to find KHAMA VOL. 8.   Place this book on the shelf straight ahead 
    to open a new passage.   To your left is a small shelf (turnstiles) 
    that you can rotate.  Do this as many times as it takes to get the 
    treasure chest.  Open it for an ELIXIR.  Head up the large staircase 
    to the second floor.  Head right, and rotate the next turnstile.  
    Open the chest for MYTHRIL.  Head past this shelf to a desk.  On the 
    desk, you will find THEON VOL. 6.  Use the Green Trinity Mark to 
    find AZAL VOL. 3.  Use the Save Point if you want, and rotate the 
    next turnstile for a MEGA-POTION.  To the left of the turnstile is a 
    shelf with MAVA VOL. 6.  Remove it, and replace it with THEON VOL. 
    6.  The shelf slides back, revealing a switch.  Press it to unlock 
    the door.   Near the Save Point, you can jump onto the tops of the 
    shelves on the first floor.  Glide across to the turnstile and 
    rotate it for an AP UP.  There is also a chest with DISPEL-G.  Once 
    you have collected these items, return to where the Save Point is 
    (by gliding).  Don't fall, because you might be trapped behind some 
    bookcases you haven't moved yet.   Head back to the first floor, and 
    to the first shelf you saw when you entered the Library.  Place AZAL 
    VOL. 3 in the row of missing books.  The shelf slides back, 
    revealing a new section.  Turn right and you will see a row of green 
    books.  Place MAVA VOL. 6, and remove SALEGG VOL. 6.  Directly 
    across from this shelf is another shelf with a row of blue books.  
    Put SALEGG VOL. 6 where it belongs.  Now, go to the foot of the 
    staircase, and stand with your back facing the staircase.  Walk 
    forward past the turnstile to the shelf directly in front of you.  
    Get NAHARA VOL. 5.  Return to the second floor, and place NAHARA 
    VOL. 5 in the third case on the left.  Another shelf is revealed.  
    Get MAVA VOL. 3.  Take this to the row of green books where you got 
    SALEGG VOL. 6.  Once it's in place, the shelf slides over.  Pick up 
    HAFET VOL. 4 on the desk.  Take it to the shelf you uncovered on the 
    second floor.  Place HAFET VOL. 4 to find a secret entrance to the 
    Lift Stop.  Use GRAVIRA to lower the platform with the chest, and 
    open the chest for TORNADO-G.  If you examine the switch and ride 
    the big platform, you will be able to go to a small area with two 
    floating chests.  However, you won't be able to do this until your 
    second trip to Hollow Bastion, because the platform's path hasn't 
    been completely opened yet.  Now, you can return to the Library.  
    Exit through the door that you unlocked with the button.  
    
    You are back in the Entrance Hall, on a circular balcony.  Head to 
    your right.  You will see statue and two vases.  Examine the statue 
    and then break the vases with the Keyblade.  The statue sinks into a 
    groove, and something falls out of the fountain.  Continue moving 
    right, lighting the candles with FIRA.  Next is a statue is with the 
    head of a bull.  Use the Red Trinity Mark to push it off the balcony 
    and onto the floor below.  It will break open, revealing another 
    strange object.  Light the next pair of candles, and continue 
    heading right.  Push the next statue to the left.  A chest will 
    appear.   Light the next two candles, and then use THUNDER on the 
    stone.  This will open up the platform hanging in the center of the 
    room.  Light the last two candles.  Now, you can collect the objects 
    that appeared.   These are EMBLEM PIECES.  Once you have them all, 
    head through the door at the top of the stairs in the main part of 
    the Entrance Hall.  Examine the next door and each EMBLEM PIECE will 
    be placed correctly.  Watch the cutscene.  Riku gets a mysterious 
    visit.   Before you go through the door, turn around and notice the 
    two columns.  The one on the left (or right of you are looking at 
    them from the Entrance Hall) has an outcropping you can grab onto.  
    Use this to get to the top of the column, and Glide across to the 
    other column.  Open the chest for a POWER UP.  Now, go through the 
    door to the Lift Stop.  
    
    Don't bother with the two pedestals.  Just follow the path and enter 
    the door to the Castle Gates.  You will meet Wyverns here.  They are 
    tough flying monsters who like to dive bomb you.  Don't attack them 
    until they get close, or else you might fall, and end up back in the 
    Base Level.  Head up the stairs and turn right.    Examine the 
    second switch, and then the first switch.  A platform takes you to 
    the next area, which is called the Great Crest.
    
    Head up both sets of stairs and examine the switch.  You will 
    teleport to a huge platform.  It moves slowly, and it can sometimes 
    look like you aren't moving at all.  About halfway through your 
    ride, the platform will stop, and Wizards will show up.  They are 
    the most powerful of the Heartless mages.  Once you defeat them, a 
    switch appears.  Examine it to continue.  Once you get off the 
    platform, head up the stairs and use the Blue Trinity Mark, then 
    open the chest along the back wall for a DISPEL-G.  Go down the 
    stairs to the right.  Go through the door to get back to the Lift 
    Stop.  Examine the switch here and take the platform.  Enter the 
    next door.   Back in Great Crest, head left and open the chest near 
    the big rock and orange pipe.  It contains ORICHALUM.  Now, hit the 
    switch and ride the platform.   Fight off the Heartless, and use 
    GRAVIRA to lower the small platform with the chest.  Open the chest 
    to get a THUNDAGA RING.  From the chest, head left and examine the 
    switch.  It lowers a giant step.  Go back and enter the door to the 
    Lift Stop.  
    
    Head to the door on the other side of the room.  It leads to the 
    High Tower.  Use GRAVIRA to get the chest and receive PUPPIES.  
    Examine the switch to lower the second step.  Jump up the steps and 
    take out the Wyverns.  Then, examine the next switch.  It raises the 
    second step.  Turn around, and jump up to the next area.  Open the 
    chest for a MEGALIXIR, and then examine the switch.  Jump back down 
    and enter the Lift Stop.   Fight off the Heartless and enter the 
    Castle Chapel.  Watch the cutscene, and then walk forward to 
    confront Maleficent.

    Boss: Maleficent
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 900
    EXP: 6000p
    Rewards: Cheer (Donald), Ansem's Report 5
    
    Maleficent calls herself The Mistress of All Evil, which makes her 
    sound tougher than she actually is.  Your first order of business is 
    to take down the platform she is riding on.  To do this, lock onto 
    the platform, and then either hit it with your Keyblade, or use 
    GRAVIRA.  When it crashes to the ground, cast AERO, and then jump 
    onto it and start attacking Maleficent.  Use Ars Arcanum, followed 
    by regular slashes.  After sustaining a certain amount of damage, 
    she will turn into a ball of green fire, and float around the room.  
    Take this time to heal.  When she reappears, do what you did before.  
    Maleficent will repeatedly summon Heartless (usually a pair of 
    Defenders) into the battle, but you can usually just ignore them 
    unless you want the extra orbs or magic bubbles.  When she says, 
    "Meteors of heaven, release my fury", get to the safety of the 
    room's far left and right sides.  She will also use some purple 
    lightning, which forms three rings on the ground.  Watch your feet, 
    and make sure that aren't standing in one of the rings.  
    =================================================
    After the fight, Maleficent steps through a portal.  Use the Save 
    Point, and make sure that you have fully stocked item slots for each 
    character, and that you have your best weapons equipped.  Enter the 
    portal.   Riku has another Keyblade!!  This one is black, and has 
    the power to unlock people's hearts.  He demonstrates this by 
    stabbing Maleficent with it.  If you have ever seen Sleeping Beauty, 
    then you know what's coming!!!
    =================================================
    Boss: Black Dragon
    Difficulty: Hard
    HP: 1200 
    EXP: 6000p
    Rewards: Fireglow
    
    This is one of the game's hardest battles.  The first time I tried 
    it, I was dead in less than three minutes!!  Of course, I hadn't 
    prepared that well.  ELIXIRS are great because they can restore HP 
    and MP, and you lose both pretty quickly here.  Forget about Donald 
    and Goofy.  They won't be much help at all, especially if you spend 
    time worrying about them.  Keep AERO cast throughout the entire 
    fight.  GENIE and DUMBO are very effective, because they can cause 
    damage without being close.  You might want to summon TINKERBELL at 
    some point, because she will keep your HP near maximum.  With these 
    tips in mind, let's get going.  The Dragon uses a lot of different 
    attacks.  It usually starts off by stomping the ground, sending 
    tremors across the floor.  Jump and Glide to avoid serious damage.  
    Sometimes, the Dragon will spin around, sweeping over the room with 
    its tail.  Again, Glide is a lifesaver.  Get to one of the platforms 
    on the outer edge of the arena, and then try to Glide towards the 
    Dragon's head.  It will probably be surrounded by green fire, but 
    that really doesn't matter.  As soon as you reach the head, let 
    loose with aerial slashes, and hopefully, as you fall, Sora will be 
    able to complete a combo.  If this is successful, return to the 
    platforms, and do it again.  However, if you do like this strategy, 
    there's another.  Stand under the Dragon's neck, and when the head 
    lowers towards the floor, usually to release the green fire, you can 
    hack away while sustaining very little damage.  Safety is only 
    temporary, though, because if the Boss pounds its feet, then you 
    will be trapped by the shockwaves.   If you want a really secure 
    spot, get up on the Dragon's back.   Nothing can harm you here, but 
    if a body spin is used, you will be thrown off.  ALWAYS BE SURE TO 
    RECAST AERO IF IT RUNS OUT!!!  I can't stress that enough.  This 
    strategy is really just an amalgamation of various ideas, but I 
    can't recommend a single method that works 100% of the time.  By the 
    way, when the balls of green fire come toward you, use the Guard 
    ability to knock them back and earn 119 Tech Points.  Plus, it hurts 
    the Dragon, and every little bit helps, right? 
    =================================================
    Afterwards, step back through the portal, and save your game.  
    Restock your item slots, and then head through the new doorway.  Run 
    straight to the next door, avoiding all of the Heartless along the 
    way.  Fighting them is risky, because if you fall off the sides, you 
    have to do a lot of backtracking.  
    
    In the Grand Hall, you will see the six dormant princesses.  Where's 
    the seventh one?  You will find out shortly.  Head up the stairs and 
    watch the cutscene.  Riku has been possessed by Ansem, who plans on 
    reviving Kairi and completing the ritual Maleficent pursued so 
    fiercely.  But, Sora resists, and decides to fight back.  
    =================================================
    Boss: Riku II
    Difficulty: Hard
    HP: 900
    EXP: 8500p
    Rewards: Ragnarok (Sora)
    
    Sora will have to do this one on his own, because Donald and Goofy 
    will be blocked off by force fields.  This means you can't use 
    summon spells.  The only spell that you should cast is AERO.  Rely 
    on items (ELIXIRS) rather than CURA.  Now, how to beat Riku.  Well, 
    first of all, he is fast.   You won't get any breaks.  Use Guard to 
    deflect his basic sword slashes and earn 17 Tech Points.  This won't 
    stun him, however.  Ars Arcanum is an essential part of your 
    strategy, but you can't use it foolishly.  The only time Riku is 
    actually vulnerable is when he holds his Keyblade in front of him, 
    and says something like "Is that the best you can do", or "Show me 
    what you've got" or "Come on".  Your first hit will knock his weapon 
    back, and then you can continue hitting him for a combo.  This is 
    the best time to unleash Ars Arcanum, as Riku will be able taste 
    every ounce of it.  You won't miss him.  After awhile, he will start 
    glowing.  He then tosses projectiles at you.  Do your best to repel 
    them with Guard.  He also jumps into the air, and slams his sword 
    into the ground, causing energy pillars to appear.  You can avoid 
    these pretty easily if you just keep moving, paying attention to 
    where the pillars are rising from.   When about a quarter of his 
    green health meter is depleted, Riku will glow again, and this time, 
    he will teleport around the room.  Glide during this attack, but 
    don't expect to come out of it completely unscathed.  Afterwards, 
    the battle will go into overdrive.  Guard and Glide when necessary, 
    and use Ars Arcanum if you get the chance.  This is the home 
    stretch, so keep an eye on your HP.  It would be a shame to die now.  
    =================================================
    Once you defeat Riku, he vanishes, leaving behind the black 
    Keyblade.  Sora resurrects Kairi by sacrificing himself.  Ansem 
    shows his true form.  He starts to approach you, but Riku intercepts 
    him, telling you to run away because the Heartless are coming.  
    Donald and Goofy take Kairi and flee.  Seconds later, you are given 
    control of a Shadow.  
    
    Exit the Grand Hall.  At the Lift Stop, jump down to the floor below 
    and go through the door to the High Tower.  Run straight ahead and 
    jump off the edge.  Your objective is to fall to the very bottom, 
    back to the Base Level.  When you do, touch the switch, and a 
    platform automatically appears.  Now, head to the Entrance Hall.   
    You have found your friends, but they don't recognize you.  After 
    Donald threatens to attack, run forward and Kairi will bring Sora 
    back to human form.  Many more Heartless have appeared, but the 
    Beast, who is still searching for Belle, holds them off while you 
    make your escape.   You will automatically be transported back to 
    Traverse Town.  
    
    
    XXI. Traverse Town, 6th Visit 
    
    After the cutscene, return to the First District.  You will notice 
    that all of the Heartless are stronger now.  They are worth two or 
    three times as much EXP, but are much more difficult to defeat.  In 
    the First District, talk to Cid, who tells you about a Navigation 
    Gummi that he has kept hidden for emergencies.  It is in the Secret 
    Waterway, where you talked Leon earlier.  The Secret Waterway can be 
    entered from the Alleyway, or from Merlin's House.  Once inside the 
    Secret Waterway, talk to Kairi, then go to the mural on the back 
    wall.  Once you have the NAVI-GUMMI, walk back towards Kairi and 
    watch the cutscene.  You will get the OATHKEEPER keychain, which is 
    perhaps the most well-balanced weapon in your arsenal.  It gives 
    your magic and summon spells extra oomph, and it also raises your 
    attack power, and increases your chance of dealing critical blows.  
    Pay a visit to the Godmother and have her turn the FIREGLOW into 
    MUSHU.  Then return to the First District and talk to Cid.  He will 
    install the Gummi for you.  Now, you can go back to Hollow Bastion.  
    Visit all the shops before leaving.   In the Accessory Shop, you can 
    buy the ELEMENT RING (4800 Munny), which reduces all elemental magic 
    damage by 20%.  In the Item Shop, choose the ONYX SHIELD (2800 
    Munny) over the Adamant Shield (4000 Munny) because you get more for 
    the price.  The WISDOM STAFF and GRAND MALLET are the same price 
    (4000 Munny), so it really doesn't matter which one you pick.  Don't 
    get both.  I suggest the WISDOM STAFF because it will increase 
    Donald's effectiveness as a magic user.  
    
    Note: Remember Goofy's suggestion about revisiting the other worlds?  
    You should do that now.  Go back to Wonderland, Deep Jungle, 
    Agrabah, Halloween Town, Atlantica, and Neverland to gather all of 
    the treasures you couldn't get before.   In Neverland, disembark at 
    the Ship's Hold, and then open the door with the Yellow Trinity mark 
    in front of it.  You will enter a room with several chests.  One of 
    them has PUPPIES, and another has AERORA.  
    
    XXII.	Hollow Bastion, 2nd Visit  
    
    On the World Map, take the Warp Hole right next to Traverse Town.  
    You will have to disembark at the Rising Falls area.  You learn that 
    the Princesses are still inside the castle.  The Beast rejoins your 
    party.  Again, you really don't want to use him, unless you think 
    that Donald's a wimp.  Use the Save Point, then jump up the 
    platforms to the Castle Gates.  Head forward to the Entrance Hall.  
    Fight off the Heartless, and then run up the stairs to the Library.  
    Climb the stairs and watch the cutscene.  Afterwards, talk to Belle 
    and she will give you the DIVINE ROSE keychain.  It is awfully 
    pretty, but you should hold onto the OATHKEEPER.  Remember the 
    secret area you opened earlier by finding all of the books?  You can 
    go back there now, and get what you couldn't get before.  When you 
    are done, return to the Entrance Hall, and go through the door that 
    the EMBLEM PIECES fit into.  
    
    Welcome back to the Lift Stop.  The path is virtually the same as it 
    was on our first trip through Hollow Bastion.  The only difference 
    is that you will have to fight about twice as many Heartless on your 
    way to the Chapel, and in the High Tower area, don't examine either 
    of the switches.  Leave the two giant steps the way they are.  
    
    Once you reach the Chapel, talk to the Princesses and then save your 
    game.  Head through the door near the Save Point.  Kill the 
    Heartless, and then enter the Grand Hall.  Defeat all of the 
    Heartless in this room.  There are lots of them.  When you beat the 
    last batch of Heartless, you should be standing in the area where 
    you fought Riku.  If you look to your left, you will see a platform 
    that circles around the Grand Hall.  Jump and Glide to it.  On your 
    right is a chest with PUPPIES.  If you continue left, you will a 
    chest with the OBLIVION keychain, which is your strongest weapon at 
    this point in the game.  Equip it immediately and then return to the 
    Chapel.  Save your game, and then come back to the Grand Hall.  
    Approach the large Keyhole and enter the Dark Depths.
    ====================================================
    Boss: Behemoth
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    HP: 1350
    EXP: 16,000p
    Rewards: Omega Arts
    
    The Behemoth was always one of the most powerful enemies in the 
    Final Fantasy series.   Here, however, it is nothing more than a big 
    pushover.  The Boss's weak point is its horn.  Jump onto its back 
    and lock-on to the horn.  Then, start hacking away.  If you get 
    thrown off, climb right back on.  The only major attack to watch out 
    for is the lightning, which can sometimes damage you regardless of 
    location.  The RAGNAROK ability is pretty useful, here, because it 
    allows you to perform some nice aerial combos.  
    ====================================================
    After the battle, you will hear Leon's voice.  Back in the Grand 
    Hall, you will find out that he, Yuffie, Cid, and Aerith were all 
    born and raised in Hollow Bastion.  Now that Maleficent is gone, 
    they have returned. Sora finds out that once Ansem is defeated, the 
    worlds will become isolated from each other, just as they were 
    before the Heartless showed up.  Once you seal the Keyhole, the 
    Princesses give you FIRAGA.  Go back to the Library and go up to the 
    second floor.  Aerith is standing near a bookcase.  Talk to her 
    multiple times to get CURAGA. Use the Save Point and go back to your 
    Gummi Ship.   A new location has appeared on the World Map.  Before 
    you go there, however, you can fight the optional Bosses, complete 
    the extra modes in the Coliseum, collect the rest of the Dalmatians, 
    and get the Hades Cup.   
    
    
    XXIII.	End of the World
    
    Use the Save Point, and then walk through the door in front of you.  
    After the cutscene, you will see a wide area in front of you.  There 
    are a series of platforms and treasure chests.  The chests contain 
    great items.  Most of the chests have enemies inside that you will 
    need to defeat.  But, remember, you don't have to open the chests if 
    you don't want to.   Below is the order of the chests, and the 
    monsters (if any) that you will encounter.  Just so you know, the 
    platforms are shaped like arrows, and they point you in the right 
    direction.
    
    1st chest: POWER UP      Invisible
    Note: The Invisible carries a big sword and is super fast. Use Guard 
    to deflect its blows, and attack it when you can.
    
    2nd Chest: DEFENSE UP      Invisible, Darkball 
    
    3rd Chest: MEGALIXIR    no enemies
    
    4th Chest:  Omega Arts     Behemoth 
    ====================================================
    Boss: Behemoth 
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    HP: 1050
    EXP: 450p
    Rewards: HP orbs, Munny, and an item (usually ORICHALUM or MYTHRIL 
    SHARD)
    
    This Behemoth is even easier than the one that was in the Dark 
    Depths.  Jump on its back, lock-on to its horn, and start slashing 
    away.  Ragnarok is, again, very helpful.  
    ====================================================
    
    5th Chest: ANGEL BANGLE    Angel Star 
    Note: The Angel Star uses powerful magic spells, and tends to attack 
    from a distance.  It uses its wings to block most physical hits.  
    Ars Arcanum and Ragnarok are good to use against these creatures.
    
    6th Chest: MEGALIXIR    no enemies
    
    7th Chest: DEFENSE UP     Invisible, Angel Heart 
    
    8th Chest: THREE STARS    no enemies
    
    9th Chest: POWER UP      Invisible x2, Angel Star, Darkball 
    
    10th Chest: DARK RING     Darkball, Invisible, Shadow
    
    As you go to the very back of the area, a large ball of dark energy 
    falls from the sky, forcing you to fight another Behemoth.  You 
    should know how to beat this thing by now.
    
    After your victory, you will be in the Giant Crevasse.  Gummi blocks 
    are all over the place.  From your starting position, jump all the 
    way down to the bottom.  It is a really long fall.  Once you land, 
    you will see a long white line.  Follow this to the other end.  
    There is a hole with light coming out of it.  But, you can't reach 
    it yet.  There is ivy on the wall nearby.  Jump to it, and climb up 
    until you reach the very platform on your left.  Jump to it.  Now, 
    you can simply jump and Glide to the Save Point and then fall into 
    the hole.  
    
    You are now in World Terminus.  Walk forward and step into the 
    light.  You will be transported to a new area.  Walk into the pink 
    light.  This takes you to Traverse Town, 3rd District.  Kill the 
    Heartless (Soldiers and Large Bodies), and then open the chest for a 
    BRAVE WARRIOR.  Exit through the double doors that lead to the First 
    District.  To avoid major repetition, here is a rundown of the pink 
    lights, where they lead, and what you get for opening the chests.  
    Wonderland (Rabbit Hole): Green Requiem, Wizard, Yellow Opera, Red 
    Nocturne 
    Treasure: IFRIT'S HORN
    
    Olympus Coliseum (Coliseum Gates): Air Soldier, Defender, Wyvern
    Treasure: INFERNO BAND (found behind foot of right statue)
    
    Deep Jungle (Bamboo Thicket): Powerwild, Bouncywild
    Treasure: WHITE FANG
    
    Agrabah (Plaza, Main Street, Palace Gates): Bandit, Fat Bandit
    Treasure: RAY OF LIGHT (go through the first two doors to get to the 
    Palace Gates area.  There are two wooden platforms here.  Jump and 
    grab either one of them, and Sora will swing onto it.  Then, by 
    jumping and grabbing twice more, you can get to the roof of the 
    building and open the chest).
    
    Atlantica (Calm Depths):  Sheltering Zone, Screwdiver, Aqua Tank, 
    Sea Neon 
    Treasure: AP UP
    
    Halloween Town (Torture Room): Wight Knight, Search Ghost, Gargoyle
    Treasure: HOLY CIRCLET
    
    Neverland (Ship's Hold): Pirate, Barrel Spider
    Treasure: RAVEN'S CLAW
    
    Next is a green light rather than a pink light.  You will be in 100 
    Acre Wood.  Get the MEGALIXIR in the chest, and then use the Save 
    Point.  
    
    Next is a light that looks like fire.  It takes you to Hollow 
    Bastion.  Defeat the Invisibles, and then go through the door on the 
    left side of the hallway.  Open the chest for a MEGALIXIR, and then 
    examine the console in the middle of the room.  More Invisibles 
    appear.  Take them out, and then go back through the portal you 
    entered from.  Jump into the new hole.  
    ====================================================
    Boss: Chernabog
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 1500
    EXP: 15,000p
    Rewards: Superglide (Shared ability)
    
    You might remember the Chernabog from Fantasia.  This is an easy 
    fight, mainly because you are flying.  You can't use any special 
    attacks or summon spells, but you don't need them anyway.   Cast 
    AEROGA (or AERORA if you didn't get all of the PUPPIES), and then 
    get right up in the Boss's face and start hacking away.  Try to get 
    behind the head for the best results.    Chernabog breathes fire, 
    and will also use a big gust of wind to blow you away from him.  His 
    ultimate attack involves an enormous surge of flames, which can be 
    avoided at low altitudes, or by flying towards the screen.  Use 
    CURAGA to heal yourself if necessary. 
    ==================================================== 
    After the battle, equip SUPERGLIDE and descend into the opening that 
    was guarded by Chernabog.  You are now in the Crater.  Lower 
    yourself to the very bottom, and step on the circle of light.  Now, 
    you are in the Volcanic Crater.  Walk forward, and step into the 
    next light circle.  Step into the next light circle.   Walk down the 
    hallway to the next circle of light.  
    
    Now, you are in Linked Worlds, where you will encounter another 
    Behemoth.  Once you kill it, a piece of the door will fall off.   
    Large groups of Heartless will appear.  Take them out, and the rest 
    of the pieces will fall off.  Enter the door. 
    
    This area is known as Final Rest, and that is exactly what it is.  
    Use the Save Point, and then make sure you are prepared for what's 
    ahead.  You can get back on the Gummi Ship and return to Traverse 
    Town, buy items, weapons, and accessories, and then do some level 
    building.  This is a great time to get the Hades Cup and the 
    ULTIMATE WEAPON if you haven't done so already.  Check the end of 
    this guide for more information.  When you are around level 70 or so 
    (this is where I was at, but I don't think you need to be this 
    strong), return to the End of the World and disembark at the Final 
    Rest.  Walk forward and examine the door.  After the short cutscene, 
    go on through.  You will be back on the Destiny Islands, or so it 
    seems that way.  Head to the Secret Place.  After the cutscene, go 
    back to the beach and approach Riku.  Ansem will explain how he was 
    able to manipulate Riku, feeding on his desire to explore other 
    worlds.  And then he will prattle on about how darkness is the 
    heart's true essence.   Once he's finished, he comes after you.
    ====================================================
    Boss: Ansem I
    Difficulty: Medium
    HP: 1500
    EXP: 10,000p
    Rewards: None
    
    Okay, time to put Ansem in his place.  He has a Shadow Guardian to 
    help him out, which makes the fight more challenging.  When the 
    Guardian throws projectiles at you, deflect them with Guard and earn 
    99 Tech Points.  Follow Ansem around the area, and use Ars Arcanum 
    when you get close.  Strike Raid and Ragnarok are excellent 
    abilities to have here, as well.  Once Ansem takes some damage, he 
    will call the Guardian to protect him. During this time, he is 
    invincible, unless you sneak behind him and get in a few good hits.  
    When Ansem yells "Submit!" the Guardian will vanish, and then 
    reappear a few moments later, grabbing your arms and legs, and 
    causing big damage, unless you choose the FREEZE command.  During 
    this phase, a cage will form around Ansem, making him temporarily 
    invulnerable.  I think you can prevent the Guardian from coming 
    after you, if you nail Ansem right when he says "Submit!".  I am not 
    sure about this, however.  Use CURAGA to heal, and AEROGA to improve 
    your defense.  
    ====================================================
    After the battle, heal yourself, and fill your item slots with 
    MEGALIXIRS and ELIXIRS.  Then, follow Ansem through the large 
    opening.  
    ====================================================
    Boss: Darkside
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 900
    EXP: 8000p
    Rewards: None
    
    You haven't seen this guy since the beginning of the game.  Luckily, 
    he hasn't changed much.  This fight is easy for a reason.  Just wait 
    'til you see what comes after it.  Target one of the Boss's hands, 
    and start slashing.  You can switch to the Head once it's lowered, 
    but it really doesn't matter.  Darkside will still ram a fist into 
    the ground and bring out some Shadows, but you should ignore them 
    this time.  It will also take a huge ball of energy and throw it 
    into the air, causing smaller orbs to fall from the sky.  You can 
    avoid these by either running, or using Guard.  Darkside will also 
    shoot missiles at you, an attack carried over from previous battles.  
    Use Guard to deflect the missiles.  You won't sustain much damage if 
    you stay between Darkside's legs, and only come out when you have a 
    chance to attack.
    ====================================================
    Boss: Ansem II
    Difficulty: Hard
    HP: 1200
    EXP: 20,000p
    Rewards: None
    
    Sora gets to have a formal showdown with Ansem.  Maybe now he can 
    avenge Riku.  The structure of the fight is nearly identical to the 
    last one, only Ansem is A LOT quicker, and he has added a few new 
    moves to his arsenal.  Again, Ars Arcanum, Strike Raid, and Ragnarok 
    are wonderful abilities to have.  Cast AEROGA, and use ELIXIRS and 
    MEGALIXIRS to restore HP and MP.  The Guardian will swipe at you 
    with its claws.  Use Guard to deflect this and get 199 Tech Points.  
    When Ansem releases the energy pillars that look like lightning, use 
    the Dodge Roll or Superglide to avoid damage.  The "Submit" phase 
    lasts longer this time around, so remember to select the FREEZE 
    command as soon as it becomes available.  When Ansem positions 
    himself in the middle of the arena, he is about to use his trickiest 
    attack.  Pools of energy form on the ground, and Heartless reach up 
    and grab you.  Use Superglide or Dodge Roll to circle Ansem until 
    this attack is finished.  At some point, Ansem and the Guardian will 
    bond together, and charge around the area.  You can Guard this, as 
    well (for 199 Tech Points) but it may be better to just Superglide 
    out of the way.  
    ====================================================
    A cutscene will play, and Ansem introduces you to the World of 
    Chaos, and tells you about Kingdom Hearts.  What follows is a series 
    of Boss fights, none of them as difficult as that last one you had. 
    ====================================================
    Boss: Ansem III
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 1500
    EXP: None
    Rewards: None
    
    Cast AEROGA and then fly right up to Ansem and start wailing your 
    Keyblade like there's no tomorrow.  Ignore the orbs that shoot beams 
    at you, and kill the bats for HP orbs.  When Ansem swings his staff, 
    you might want to back off until he stops.  Same thing goes for when 
    he moves around from side to side.  If you want to recast AEROGA or 
    use CURAGA, then get as far away as possible, so the spell doesn't 
    get interrupted by one of Ansem's attacks.  
    ====================================================
    After the fight, you will be transported to a room full of Shadows.  
    Kill them all, and then attack the blue thing that appears.  
    ====================================================
    Now you have to destroy the tentacles that are shooting at you.  The 
    bigger ones should be taken down first, and then the smaller ones.  
    This shouldn't take more than two minutes, if that.  Enter the 
    portal that appears.  
    
    In this room, you will find some Darkballs.  They are hard to see, 
    so use your lock-on.  Goofy will rejoin you.  Once you defeat them 
    all, attack the yellow thing that appears.  
    ====================================================
    Boss: Face
    Difficulty: Very Easy
    HP: 1200
    EXP: 3000p
    Rewards: None
    
    The Head will repeatedly cast THUNDER, so just take the damage, and 
    keep on attacking.  If your HP gets too low, fly away, use CURAGA, 
    and then continue your assault.  
    ====================================================
    Enter the portal in the mouth.  You can destroy the tentacles 
    outside if you want.
    
    Inside this room, you will find Donald, and a slew of Invisibles.  
    Use lock-on and slash like crazy.  Once they're all defeated, attack 
    the orange thing that appears.  
    The belly of the Chaos World has just been unsealed.  Go there.  You 
    will see a big, jelly-like structure with a skeleton's face.  It is 
    your mains target. Just hack away until you destroy it.  Take out 
    the tentacles first though, because they will shoot at you.  
    
    Now, it is time to settle the score with Ansem, once and for all.  
    ====================================================
    Boss: Ansem (Final)
    Difficulty: Easy
    HP: 1500
    EXP: 20,000p
    Rewards: None
    
    As soon as the fight starts, cast AEROGA and then head in for the 
    kill.  This the game's last battle, so take some pride in it.  You 
    will be bombarded by those orbs that shoot beams, but you should 
    ignore this and attack Ansem.  Lock-on to him and let him have it.  
    Again, when he swings his staff, and moves from side to side, drop 
    back, and heal yourself if necessary.  Speaking of his staff, there 
    will be times where he will hold it in the air, and draw energy 
    towards him.  You can't hit him that much while this is going on, so 
    wait until it's over.  
    ====================================================
    Congratulations, you have completed Kingdom Hearts.  Sit back and 
    enjoy the ending, and watch all the loose plot threads come 
    together.  
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    
    XXIV.	100 Acre Wood
    
    100 Acre Wood can be accessed by examining the OLD BOOK you brought 
    to Merlin.  Inside, you will find a Save Point and a place that can 
    take you back to the real world.  As you collect the TORN PAGES, you 
    will unlock certain areas of 100 Acre Wood.  Complete all of the 
    areas, and you can seal the Keyhole to this world.  You have to do 
    this to see the game's secret ending.  
    
    Empty Meadow
    Location: tree stump near Save Point
    
    This should be the first area you visit.  It introduces you to 
    Winnie the Pooh, an absent-minded bear with an insatiable appetite 
    for honey.  Once he leaves, look inside the log he was sitting on 
    for a MYTHRIL SHARD.  Now, go back to the World Map.  
    
    Pooh's House 
    Location: left page
    
    Pooh is in his house, looking desperately for honey.  Outside, you 
    will see Owl, a wise old creature who seems to know just about 
    everything.  Inside, check the cabinet for an ELIXIR.  You can open 
    the window and check the cuckoo clock, as well.  If you want, you 
    can ring the bell by the door, but nothing happens.  As you go to 
    leave, Owl will tell you about the missing PAGES.  
    
    Hunny Tree
    Location: top of right page, left of exit
    
    At the Hunny Tree, you will find Piglet, who runs off in fright.  He 
    hides in a bush.  You have to sneak up on him from behind.  When you 
    talk to him, Pooh shows up, and Piglet gives him a balloon.  Pooh is 
    going to use the balloon to get honey from the tree, and you have to 
    protect him from the bees.  This is one of several mini-games you 
    will participate in as you explore the 100 Acre Wood.  
    
    Pooh's Hunny Hunt
     
    Basically, all you have to do is follow Pooh by jumping up the 
    tree's branches, locking on to the bees as they appear, and then 
    swat them when they get close.  This isn't difficult, but it can be 
    frustrating, especially when you fall back to the ground.  This is 
    where the Rush Command comes into play.  Using it will make Sora hop 
    up the branches automatically until he reaches Pooh's current 
    position.  However, this isn't entirely accurate, and the higher you 
    go, the riskier it gets.  Don't use combos against the bees, or else 
    you will lose your balance and fall to the ground.  To complete this 
    section, you just have to wait until the timer runs out.  However, 
    it is important to get as many licks as possible.  
    Exit to the World Map.  The TORN PAGE will transform into the 
    NATURESPARK, which gives you BAMBI as a summon spell.
    
    Rabbit's House
    Location: northwest corner of left page
    
    As you enter this area, you will see some vegetable patches.  Cross 
    the bridge and check the mailbox to find a letter from Pooh.  Go 
    behind the house to find Pooh and Piglet.  Enter the house.  Pooh 
    crawls through the window, and you meet Rabbit, an anxious farmer 
    who is sick and tired of Pooh eating all of his honey.  He has 
    hidden a jar of it in the rafters of his house.  As discourteous as 
    it may seem, lock-on to the honey and examine it.  As expected, Pooh 
    devours the honey.  Leave the house and start back to the World Map.  
    Rabbit will stop you, and ask for your help.  Go back behind the 
    house and talk to Pooh, who has gotten stuck in the window (why he 
    couldn't have gone out the front door is beyond me).  Anyway, Rabbit 
    is frantic, and wants you to get some carrots so that he can make 
    carrot top juice.  However, Tigger shows up, and his exuberant 
    bouncing threatens to destroy the carrots.  You have to protect 
    them.  
    
    Block Tigger
    
    Not much to say here.  This is a test of reflexes more than anything 
    else.  Use the Rush Command to get to Tigger as quickly as possible.  
    Tigger has to bounce on a carrot twice in order to bury it.  
    
    After saving the carrots, return to the house and talk to Pooh to 
    push him out.  The TORN PAGE becomes a MYTHRIL SHARD.
    
    
    Hill
    Location: Left of Empty Meadow on right page
    
    When you arrive at the Hill, you will see Pooh and Piglet standing 
    on a bridge.  Their friend Eeyore is floating helplessly downstream.  
    Jump in and rescue him.  The poor donkey has lost his tail.  Owl 
    suggests that you could find it easier from a higher spot.  Lock-on 
    to Pooh and lead him to the swing.  Don't move too quickly, or else 
    he will get distracted by the pots of honey.  When you get to the 
    swing, Owl will explain what you're supposed to do.
    
    Pooh's Swing
    
    When Owl spreads his wings, press R1 to send Pooh into the air.  To 
    find Eeyore's tail, you have to land approximately 22 yards away.  
    Pooh will crash through the wooden structure that is near Rabbit.   
    Once you find the tail, the TORN PAGE turns into the STOPRA spell.
    
    Bouncing Spot
    Location: north of the bridge on right page-northwest of Hill
    
    In this area, you will Tigger and Roo playing on a seesaw.  Talk to 
    them, and then follow them onto the nearby tree stump.  Talk to them 
    a second time.  Watch their bouncing pattern, and then repeat it.  
    You have to do this three times.   The 2nd pattern requires a slight 
    adjustment of the camera, so you don't fall off.  For the 3rd path, 
    you have to jump onto the seesaw and then drop to the stump directly 
    below.  This can be tricky.  After you finish all three paths, 
    Tigger will congratulate you, but Roo has an additional challenge.  
    
    Tigger's Giant Pot
    
    The goal here is to hit the nuts back at the pot until you break it.  
    Equip your longest weapon (usually the PUMPKINHEAD or OBLIVION).  
    Use jumping slashes and you will hit two or three nuts at once.  
    Make sure that you don't fall off the stump.  When the pot is 
    destroyed, you will find a chest with an AP UP.  Go to where Pooh is 
    standing and break the log to find MYTHRIL.  The nuts that grow in 
    the trees can be gathered and brought to Owl, who will reward you 
    with a variety of statistical power-ups (i.e. DEFENSE UP, etc.).  
    There are also a couple of chests that are scattered throughout this 
    area.  Once you are finished, exit to the World Map, and the TORN 
    PAGE will turn into MYTHRIL.  
    
    Pooh's Muddy Path

    (The enemies mentioned here are only Heartless, and not human 
    characters like Riku or Maleficent)
    
    Shadow  
    EXP: varies
    Heartless that emerge in various places.  They sneak up to enemies 
    and strike them with sharp claws.  They are extremely tenacious, 
    often chasing their prey to the end. They are found in every world.  
    They don't seem to show up after Hollow Bastion.
    
    Soldier 
    EXP: 3p (before Hollow Bastion), 90p (after Hollow Bastion)
    Heartless that emerge from various places.  They are brisk in their 
    movements, and rush into their opponents.  However, they are not 
    that tenacious.  They often appear in numbers, though they lack 
    teamwork.  
     
    Large Body 
    EXP: 7p (before Hollow Bastion), 240p (after Hollow Bastion)
    Big round Heartless.  They seem tame and laid-back, but go berserk 
    when angered.  With their brute strength, they can inflict great 
    damage, so be on your guard.  Hit their heads, and get away when 
    they pat their stomachs.  Watch out for their charge attack.  
    Location: Traverse Town, Wonderland, Monstro, Agrabah, Hollow 
    Bastion
    
    Red Nocturne 
    EXP: 1p (before Hollow Bastion), 60p (after Hollow Bastion)
    Spellcasting Heartless.  While hovering about, they attack by 
    casting fire.  Having low HP, they keep their distance from their 
    opponents, making them difficult to attack.  They absorb fire.

    XXXII. Special Coliseum Modes
    
    After you complete each of the tournaments in the Coliseum, you can 
    open a series of special modes, and if you finish them, then you 
    will receive additional prizes. 
    
    For the first mode, Sora will go through a tournament by himself.  
    For the Phil Cup, this is incredibly easy.  Just remember to keep an 
    eye on your HP.  The Pegasus Cup has the Boss fight with Leon & 
    Yuffie, which can be difficult without the extra support.  The 
    Hercules Cup isn't too tough, but the Hades Cup is a nightmare.  
    Sora should be around level 70 before he tries this.  Leon & Cloud 
    are the biggest challenges, because Donald and Goofy won't be there 
    to distract one of them.  Here is some advice for getting Sora 
    through the Hades Cup without his teammates:
    
    As I have already said, Sora should be at level 70 or higher.
    Have MP Haste equipped
    Have Ars Arcanum equipped
    Have both MP Rage abilities equipped
    Have at least one Critical Plus ability equipped (two if you higher 
    than level 78)
    
    Solo Mode Rewards
    
    Phil Cup: Mythril Shard
    Pegasus Cup: Mythril
    Hercules Cup: Orichalum
    Hades Cup: Save the Queen
    
    The second mode is the Time Trial. It opens after you beat Solo 
    Mode.  You have to get through each tournament before the time limit 
    runs out.  Again, the Phil Cup is really easy.  Leon & Yuffie will 
    take up much of your time in the Pegasus Cup, as will Cloud in the 
    Hercules Cup.  You can freeze the timer when you fight Hercules by 
    pausing the game and choosing Restart.  The fight will continue, but 
    the timer will be stopped.   The three Cups mentioned above all have 
    time limits of 3 minutes.  The Hades Cup has a time limit of 20 
    minutes.   In order to be successful in this mode, you have to be 
    powered up enough to defeat almost every non-Boss enemy with one 
    hit.  I did this at level 74, and I used all of my POWER UPS on 
    Sora.  Donald and Goofy will be with you during this mode.  My 
    Strength Stat was 71, and I had the OBLIVION equipped.  However, the 
    ULTIMA WEAPON will most likely make things even easier.  Try not to 
    use any magic except for CURE and AERO spells.  Make sure to have 
    them assigned to a button, so you don't have to cycle through your 
    whole spell inventory.

    Yuffie hasn't changed much since she partnered up with Leon.  Again, 
    your best bet is to try and trap her in one of the arena's corners, 
    and then pound her mercilessly.  Ars Arcanum can be effective in 
    this situation.  Deflect the shurikens she throws at you.  This will 
    stun her temporarily.   Sometimes the shurikens come in groups of 
    three.   A couple of times throughout the battle, Yuffie will toss a 
    big shuriken, which will fly around the area for several moments 
    before disappearing.  Use Guard to protect yourself from it.

    The Behemoth was always one of the most powerful enemies in the 
    Final Fantasy series.   Here, however, it is nothing more than a big 
    pushover.  The Boss's weak point is its horn.  Jump onto its back 
    and lock-on to the horn.  Then, start hacking away.  If you get 
    thrown off, climb right back on.  The only major attack to watch out 
    for is the lightning, which can sometimes damage you regardless of 
    location.  The RAGNAROK ability is pretty useful, here, because it 
    allows you to perform some nice aerial combos.

    Cerberus is faster than he was before, but his attacks remain the 
    same.  Glide when he spews the black liquid, and use Dodge Roll to 
    avoid the meteors.  Guard won't help you that much in this battle.  
    Lock-on to one of the outside heads, and then use either Ragnarok 
    (performing an aerial combo) or Ars Arcanum to deal the most damage.   
    Again, you can jump onto Cerberus' back when his hind leg is 
    stretched out.  Cast AEROGA to absorb damage, and keep yourself 
    healthy with CURA or CURAGA, whichever you have.

    Wow!! What a tough fight this is!!  It took me nearly two hours to 
    beat these guys down!!  Leon is exactly the same as before; except 
    that he is, of course, much stronger.  Take him out first.  Have 
    Donald and Goofy keep Cloud occupied.  Use guard to deflect Leon's 
    blows, and when his weapon transforms, jump or Glide out of harm's 
    way. Attack him after he performs his rising slash.  Ars Arcanum and 
    Strike Raid are very effective.  Always make sure that AEROGA is 
    cast, and stays that way for the entire fight.  Once Leon is gone, 
    you can focus on Cloud.  He does that charge thing again, which will 
    probably wipe out your teammates.  If it does, don't worry about 
    reviving them.  When Cloud jumps up and drives his sword into the 
    ground, hit him immediately afterwards with a combo or Ars Arcanum.  
    You can also nail him right after he lands from his invincibility 
    glide, where he is surrounded by yellow lightning.

    Ah, the Lord of the Underworld.  You'd think he'd be tougher, and 
    you'd think that he would be the top opponent in his own tournament, 
    but I digress.  Start off by casting AEROGA. Then, lock-on to Hades.  
    Donald and Goofy are very aggressive in this battle for some reason.  
    When Hades? hair is blue, he will use about three attacks.   He will 
    point his finger at you and release a puff of flame that can travel 
    across the area, even tough you can't really see it.   Jump to avoid 
    damage.  Next, he will have fire come out of hands, and will circle 
    the area.  Use Glide, or just run away from him.  Lastly, he will 
    throw meteors at you.  These can be deflected with Guard. If you hit 
    a meteor back at Hades, it will stun him temporarily.  After you 
    have damaged him a little, his hair will turn red, and he will say 
    something like "Let's heat things up".  He will stand in the center 
    of the area and spin around, with long jets of fire streaming from 
    his arms.  It is almost impossible to dodge this, and it removes a 
    lot of your HP.  Glide is ineffective, and so is jumping.  The Dodge 
    Roll is the best course of action, and you will sometimes avoid 
    damage if you roll towards the invisible barriers around the outer 
    edge of the arena.  But, this doesn't work all of the time.  Heal 
    after it's over, and then start wailing on Hades with Strike Raid 
    and Ars Arcanum.  These are best used after he has been stunned by 
    one of his meteors.

    This huge monster is incredibly easy to defeat.  Lock-on to one of 
    its feet, and keep attacking until it falls down.  Then, jump up to 
    either of its two heads, and unleash your most potent combos, 
    especially Ars Arcanum.  Its stomp is unbelievably powerful, and can 
    sometimes shave off more than half of your HP.  Sora can win this 
    fight single-handedly, without any help from Donald or Goofy.  You 
    shouldn't even have to use any healing items or magic.  
    =======================================================
    
    XXXIV. Mushroom Hunting Tips
    
    White Mushrooms appear in almost every world at some point during 
    the game.  Below are a few of their more common locations.
    
    Wonderland
    Sometimes, four Mushrooms will show up in Lotus Forest.  This 
    happens before and after Hollow Bastion.  Defeat all of the 
    Heartless, and then keep entering and exiting the Forest until they 
    appear.  In 1 hour, I found them three times.  
    
    Deep Jungle
    3 Mushrooms appear in the Camp.  This happens more frequently after 
    Hollow Bastion.  Go through the Bamboo Thicket and the Cliff, and 
    then come back to the Camp.  In 1 hour, I found them 6 times.  
    
    Agrabah
    4 Mushrooms appear in the Treasure Room in the Cave of Wonders. They 
    are almost always floating, which makes this the ideal place to get 
    the GRAVITY ARTS.  I don't really know the pattern to their 
    appearances, but I simply went in and out of the Lamp Chamber until 
    they showed up.  In 1 hour, I found them twice.  This occurs after 
    Hollow Bastion.
    
    Halloween Town
    6 (or maybe 7) Mushrooms appear in the Graveyard.  Just keeping 
    going to and from the Boneyard or Guillotine Square until they show 
    up.  This is where I got the FIRE, BLIZZARD, THUNDER, STOP, and CURE 
    ARTS.  In 1 hour, I found them 4 times.  This occurs before and 
    after Hollow Bastion. 
    
    End of the World
    4 (or 5) Mushrooms appear in the Linked Worlds area.  They are 
    almost always there, so this is one of the best places to build up 
    your collection of spell ARTS.  In 1 hour, I found them 8 times.
    
    Black Fungus
    The only reason to find the Black Fungi is so that you can stock up 
    on Mystery Goo, which is a rare item used for synthesis.  The best 
    place to find a Black Fungus is Moonlight Hill in Halloween Town.  
    In 1 hour, I found them 5 times.  This only seems to occur after 
    Hollow Bastion.  
    
    Rare Truffle
    Rare Truffles like to jump, and if you can juggle them in the air, 
    you will be rewarded.  You can earn as much as 5050 EXP for doing 
    this 100 times.  They appear most frequently in Neverland, on the 
    deck of the Pirate Ship, and in End of the World, in the Linked 
    Worlds area, which is just before Final Rest.  To knock them into 
    the air, you have one of two choices.  In Neverland, you can fly 
    directly under them, hitting them repeatedly with relative ease.  
    Also, they might get caught in the netting at the sides of the ship.  
    Secondly, and perhaps more effectively, you can cast AEROGA on 
    yourself and stand under them.  They will be shot back into the air 
    every time they touch you, as long as you keep replenishing the 
    spell.  You will get a Mystery Goo if you hit them into the air 50 
    times.  
    ====================================================================
    
    XXXV. Phantom
    
    ====================================================================
    Boss: Phantom
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    HP: 1200
    EXP: 9999p
    Rewards: Stopga 
    
    Location: after you seal the Keyhole in Hollow Bastion, return to 
    Neverland, and disembark at the Ship's Cabin.  Put Peter Pan in your 
    party and talk to Tinkerbell.  You will be asked if you want to go 
    to the Clock Tower.  Obviously, you want to choose yes. 
    
    Suggested Level: 65 or higher
    
    Suggested Abilities
    MP Haste 
    MP Gift (Goofy)
    MP Rage (both)
    
    This fight is more about patience than power.  Goofy is more helpful 
    than Donald, who usually casts the wrong spell at the wrong time.  
    Peter Pan will simply prolong the effects of Doom.  What is Doom? 
    You may remember it from the Final Fantasy games.  A timer appears 
    over the heads of one of your characters, and when it runs out, that 
    character dies.  Here, Doom occurs as the hands move around the 
    clock.  They start at 12, and when they get back to 12, a member of 
    your party is permanently knocked out.  Peter Pan will be the first 
    victim, Goofy is second, and Sora is last.  Since the Phantom has no 
    physical body, you have to attack it when one of its hearts appears. 
    They are color coded, with each color representing a different type 
    of spell or attack.  
    
    Red indicates Fire
    Blue indicates Blizzard
    Yellow indicates Thunder
    White indicates a physical attack
    
    The only way to cause damage to the Phantom is by hitting it when 
    the white heart is showing.  It moves constantly, and is able to get 
    behind you very quickly as it tries to slash you with its claws.  It 
    is extremely unpredictable, and can rarely be avoided.  When it gets 
    near a clock face, it releases a worm-like projectile that homes in 
    on body heat.  To avoid this attack, hover near the adjacent clock 
    face, and wait until the Phantom moves away.  When the clock hands 
    start moving, cast Stopra.  Keep doing this throughout the battle.  
    You might want to stay near one of the clock faces and let the 
    Phantom come to you, rather than you going to it.  
    
    Your MP will deplete rapidly.  With MP Haste and both MP Rage 
    abilities equipped, it should refill in just a few moments.  Your 
    items slots should be filled with either ELIXIRS or ETHERS, or maybe 
    a few of both. 
    
    Stay locked onto the Phantom at all times.  You may have to cast 
    most of the spells several times, because of the Boss' erratic 
    movements.  This puts the hurt on your MP.  
    
    The battle area is completely three-dimensional.  This makes things 
    pretty disorienting at first.  You don't have complete freedom, 
    however, because there are invisible barriers.  You can circle the 
    clock tower to put some distance between you and the Phantom if you 
    need to heal or just get your bearings together.  
    ====================================================================
    
    XXXVI. Kurt Zisa
    
    ====================================================
    Boss: Kurt Zisa
    Difficulty: Very Hard
    HP: 1500
    EXP: 15,000p
    Rewards: None
    
    Location: after sealing the Keyhole in Hollow Bastion, go to 
    Aladdin's House in Agrabah and talk to the Magic Carpet.  It will 
    take you to the Boss.
    
    Suggested Level: 65 or higher
    
    Suggested Abilities
    MP Rage (both)
    MP Haste 
    Ars Arcanum or Ragnarok
    Treasure Magnet
    
    Kurt Zisa was named after the guy who won the Name in-game contest 
    that was held by Squaresoft prior to the release of 'Kingdom 
    Hearts'.  This battle isn't nearly as difficult as the one you had 
    with the Phantom, but it is still very challenging.  You need a fair 
    balance of patience and power to prevail.  
    
    Kurt Zisa will suspend all of your magic privileges in the first 
    round.  Rely on your items to stay healthy.  Be discreet, and don't 
    use them all at once, or else, you will be in serious trouble later 
    on.
    
    Kurt Zisa will be holding two orbs in its hands.  They are your 
    targets.  
    Lock-on to either of them and start attacking.  Get in a good combo 
    and then back off.  The reason you want to back off is because Kurt 
    will spin around, causing massive damage.  He will then leap across 
    the desert.  Follow him and repeat the process.  Each orb will drop 
    a large amount of HP balls.  That is why it is important to have 
    Treasure Magnet equipped.  After the orbs are destroyed, Kurt Zisa 
    will fall to the ground.  You can now attack him.  Lock-on to his 
    head and use Ars Arcanum or Ragnarok to cause as much damage as 
    possible.  The neck will move very erratically, so the head can be 
    difficult to hit.  
    
    After he recovers, Zisa will surround himself with a shield.  It can 
    only be penetrated by magic.  GRAVIGA is the most effective spell.  
    Zisa rarely stops moving, so expect to use a lot of MP.  After the 
    shield is destroyed, Zisa will collapse again.
    
    When he recovers this time, the orbs will be back in his hands.  And 
    he has a new attack.  He will jump into the air, and perform a 
    variety of fancy spinning moves.  They are incredibly dangerous, so 
    Dodge Roll your heart out!!!  Once he lands, continue your assault.    
    ====================================================
    
    XXXVII. Ice Titan 
    ====================================================
    Boss: Ice Titan
    Difficulty: Hard
    HP: 1600
    EXP: 5000p
    Rewards: None
    
    Location: Gold Match in Coliseum (available after Hades Cup)
    
    Suggested Level: 60
    
    The Ice Titan is the easiest of the optional bosses.   
    
    Here are the two most important pieces of advice for this battle:
    
    You must have the Guard Ability equipped!!!
    Never cast AEROGA, b/c it will make the icicles too big to deflect
    
    You will want to stay in the stands throughout the entire fight.  
    This way, you can easily avoid the Titan's worst attacks to deflect 
    the icicles it throws at you.  They will hit the creature, and 
    damage it significantly.  You will also earn 27 Tech Points per 
    icicle.  When the Boss has been hit with enough icicles, it will 
    lower its head.  Run down and start attacking.  It will recover 
    pretty quickly, so don't hold back.
    
    Frost Breath: the Titan blows cold air freezing you on contact.  In 
    the stands, position yourself in one of the corners, and this attack 
    will go right by you.  
    
    Stomp: when you get close to the Titan, it will try to crush you 
    with its gigantic foot.  Thus, you should only approach it after it 
    has been knocked unconscious.  
    
    Icicle Eruption: Big icicles rise from the ground, and chase you.  
    Just run away, or jump and Glide to get to safety.  With Superglide, 
    you can fly around until the icicles stop coming. 
    
    Ice Meteors: These form above you.  Just keep running to avoid them. 
    
    Ice Nightmare: This attack causes big damage, and is nearly 
    inescapable.  Your best bet is to memorize what precedes it, and 
    then Glide to the other side of the arena.  If it catches you, be 
    prepared to cast a CURE spell afterwards.

    Sephiroth is, of course, from Final Fantasy VII.  He is the game's 
    hardest Boss.  It took me three hours to beat him, and I used a 
    variety of different strategies, but the one that follows is, in my 
    opinion, the best.  Make sure that you have ALL of the above 
    abilities equipped, and that ALL of your item slots are filled with 
    ELIXIRS.  
    
    Sephiroth's sword is HUGE, and it has an enormous range.  He will 
    teleport around the arena, mostly in an attempt to get behind you.  
    Always be on your guard.  Speaking of Guard, you shouldn't have it 
    with you in this battle, because very few of Sephiroth's blows can 
    be deflected.  Huge pillars of fire will form around Sephiroth. This 
    doesn't make him invulnerable, and you can attack him as soon as 
    it's over, during it, if you have a lot of HP.  
    
    Sin Harvest is Sephiroth's most terrible attack. He will float in 
    the air and hit you with an ultra-powerful spell that will reduce 
    your MP to 0, and your HP to 1.  If second Chance isn't equipped, 
    then Sin Harvest will kill you instantly.   Use Strike Raid to 
    interrupt Sin Harvest.  
    
    Remember the Omnislash that Cloud used to cream Sephiroth at the end 
    of Final Fantasy VII?   Well, the Great White-Haired One has decided 
    to add that awesome move to his repertoire.  He performs a frenzied 
    series of sword slashes, but they don't stun you, and you can escape 
    quite a bit of damage by using Dodge Roll, or casting CURE right in 
    the middle of the assault.  About halfway through the fight, 
    Sephiroth will surround himself with orbs.  He will come after you, 
    performing sword slashes and transporting.  This attack doesn't do 
    that much damage, but it can incapacitate you long enough for 
    Sephiroth to get in some good hits.  
    
    In the last act, Sephiroth will blend all of his attacks together, 
    and introduce a new one.  Meteors form above his head, and spin 
    around him, damaging you if they make contact.  Then, they turn into 
    one big meteor, which comes after you.  During this phase, he is 
    invincible.  
    
    Basically, as long as you don't rush things, and are well-prepared, 
    victory will be in your grasp.
