Submitted first version. Half of walkthrough finished, Game Basics complete,
Appendices complete, apart from missing bosses. Three questions in the FAQ, 
and End of the World finished. Finally got an e-mail service, as well. Two more
planned updates. The next will finish the walkthrough and boss sections, the
one after that will simply be a touch-up and rid the whole thing of any errors.
Also might add search function, and buyable items for each world.

 This is my Kingdom Hearts II full FAQ/Walkthrough. After playing such an
 amazing game, I felt I should definitely write this FAQ.

 This FAQ was written for the North American release of Kingdom Hearts II. I
 don't know if there are any differences between the North American release
 and the Japanese or PAL versions, but if there are, my guide doesn't cover
 them.

 I accept comments or criticism, as well as contributions. To contact me about
 any of these things, you can write to me at       . However, there are guide-
 lines for contacting me. The specifics of these guidelines are listed in the
 'Contact Information' section at the end of the FAQ. However, there is one
 very important rule I will mention here. If there is something mentioned in 
 the FAQ, do not e-mail me about it. You will not get an answer.

 This FAQ was made, and is best viewed in Notepad, using the Fixedsys 
 font and font size 10.

 Kingdom Hearts II is the sequel to the widely popular Kingdom Hearts game,
 which took Squaresoft's most famous series, Final Fantasy, and perfectly 
 blended it with Disney. The result was an amazing story, blended with action/
 RPG gameplay, with an adventure-game setting. It amazed people all over, and
 there was instant demand for a sequel. Kingdom Hearts II, in my opinion, 
 lives up to all the hype and is a fitting sequel for Kingdom Hearts. I hope
 you enjoy it as much as I do.

 The goal of this guide is to provide a helpful source of information for
 Kingdom Hearts II. Read with caution, as later in the guide, some spoilers
 are unavoidable.

 Furthermore, if this is your first experience with a Kingdom Hearts game,
 I will soon provide summaries of the Kingdom Hearts, and Kingdom Hearts:
 Chain of Memories. I do recommend actually playing the games, but if you're 
 just looking to know the information, or don't have access to the past games,
 look no further.

You can find most of the following information in this section in your KHII 
manual. However, I am expanding the information in the manual. This section 
can be useful for:

-Those who lost their manual, or do not have one.

-Those who have one but just can't quite understand the fundamentals. 

-Those who have ignored other things in their life and have just decided to 
read this for the hell of it.

If you missed an explanation in the game, or don't bother paying attention, 
this part of the FAQ will save your ass.

Kindgom Hearts II is similar in many ways to it's predecessor, but different
in many more. The very bare-bones of the first game remain intact here, but 
the rebuilt battle system, new abilities, and new features make this part of
the FAQ a necessity for those looking to understand what's new, gameplay-wise,
to Kindgom Hearts II.


+--------------------------+
| DIFFICULTY LEVELS        |
+--------------------+-----+
                     |/\ /\|

Kingdom Hearts II, in order to allow more people access to this game, has put
three difficulty levels for players to choose from (Kingdom Hearts only had 2).
With it's difficulty levels, the game lets the player decide what they can 
take on, based on their experience and/or confidence. The difficulty levels 
affect the enemy attack, defense, and health statistics.


-- Beginner --
"An easier mode for beginners."

-- Standard --
"A balanced mode that's not too hard but not too easy."

-- Proud --
"A difficult mode with stronger enemies."


+---------------+
| GAUGES        |
+---------+-----+
          |/\ /\|

Numerous gauges let you know of your current situation in Kingdom Hearts II.
You start off with the initial health gauge, a green bar that appears next to
your character portrait at the lower-right corner of the screen. When you take
damage, your health will decrease, and when there is no green left in the bar,
you will get a game over. When you defeat enemies, they sometimes drop green 
orbs, which will refill your health. Items (such as Potions), and Magic (the
Cure spells) also refill your health. As you progress through the game, level 
up, and gain more "Get Bonuses" after battles, your health bar will grow, and
circle around your character icon.

The next gauge is your magic gauge, or your "MP." This is the blue bar that is
left of your character icon, in the lower-right corner of the screen. Magic
drains your MP, but so do special "Limit" attacks that you can use with your AI
partners. To refill your MP. you can collect little bubble-like orbs that
enemies drop, or you can use Items, such as Elixirs and Ethers. Abilities can
increase the rate of your MP gauge refill time. MP Charge also restores your
MP and is very useful. Your MP Gauge will grow larger as you level-up and gain
more "Get Bonuses" after special battles.

AI partners, such as Donald and Goofy, also have HP and MP gauges, located 
around their character icons, which are directly above yours. They grow
throughout the game, as well, though it's not displayed as yours is.

And finally is your Drive Gauge, the newest one for Kindgom Hearts II. Your 
Drive Gauge is what powers your new Forms. You'll learn more about Forms later.
Initially, you Drive Gauge can only fill up to 3, but as you progress, you can
max it out at 6. Relentlessly attacking and defeating enemies builds up your
Drive Gauge, but orange orbs dropped by certain enemies also fills it up some.
You can also find/synthesize Drive Recovery and High Drive Recovery items to 
refill your Drive Gauge.


+---------------------+
| FIELD BASICS        |
+---------------+-----+
                |/\ /\|

When you're on the Field, you're in an area with no active battle initiated.
You can walk around pretty freely. You move your character with the Left Analog
Stick, and you can jump to certain areas using the Circle Button.

There is a Navigational Map at the top-right corner of the screen, that shows
the area in full, and all it's exits. To enter or exit an area, simply walk 
into the exit (it appears as a red line on your map). If you've been there 
before, it will name the area, however, if it's new to you, it will be marked
"???"

Treasure Chests can be found on the Field. To open these, use the Triangle (Re-
action) Button. Chests hold various things, sometimes very important items.

Save points are also found on the field. They are circles of swirling light
that can be stepped into. Press Triangle (Reaction) to open the Save menu and
save your game.


+----------------------+
| BATTLE BASICS        |
+----------------+-----+
                 |/\ /\|

Kindgom Hearts II revolves around action. Each battle you are in takes place in
real-time, you can move freely, jumping and running, during battle to dodge
attacks, and you have numerous abilities and helpful skills to boost your 
combat tactics.

To start off, let's look at your Command Menu. You have two Command Menus. The
initial one appears as follows:

 +--------+
 | Attack |
 | Magic  |
 | Items  |
 | Drive  |
 +--------+

Use the Directional Pad, or hold down L2 and use the Right Analog Stick, to
navigate the Command Menu, and use X or R3 to select a command. Selecting
Magic, Items, or Drive brings up a sub-menu, which allows you navigate and 
select which spell, Item, or Drive Form you want to use. Press Left on the 
Directional Pad to switch to the second Command Menu, which looks like this:

 +--------+
 | Attack |
 | Summon |
 | Party  |
 | Limit  |
 +--------+

Like before, use the Directional Pad or L2 and the Right Analog Stick to navi-
gate and X or R3 to select. Selecting Summon will open a sub-menu, allowing you
to decide which Summon to bring into battle. Summons take the place of both
your AI partners. Party opens a sub-menu with the names of both your AI 
partners. Select one of them to switch them out in place of another (for
example, on Port Royal, say you have Jack and Donald in your party. Selecting
Jack would switch him out and bring in Goofy). Limit opens up the sub-menu for
your exclusive Limit attacks, which consume MP.

To attack an opponent, you select the Attack command. Using it consecutively
creates a combo attack. There are numerous variations of this combo. It can be
increased or decreased in number of hits based on the abilities you gain 
throughout the game. To make it easier to attack an opponent, you can press the
R1 Button to lock on to a target, which will allow your camera to focus on it,
and you can keep track of it.

Occassionally, you will see the Triangle button appear on-screen, and the word
"Reaction" will appear above Attack in your Command Menu. This signifies a 
unique manuever or ability that you can use that will cause damage to your 
opponent and help you out in battles. Very useful.

Defeated enemies can drop numerous things.

 +-------------+-----------------------+
 | Green Orbs  | Restores health.      |
 +-------------+-----------------------+
 | Blue Orbs   | Restores magic.       |
 +-------------+-----------------------+
 | Yellow Orbs | Munny.                |
 +-------------+-----------------------+
 | Orange Orbs | Restores Drive Gauge. |
 +-------------+-----------------------+
 | Chests      | Holds Items.          |
 +-------------+-----------------------+

Defeating enemies also gives you experience points, needed to level up. Your
experience points left to the next level will appear at the top-left corner of
the screen, along with your total Munny earned.

-Abilities such as Combo Boost, and Reaction Boost are great. They increase
the damage done by your combos and Reaction attacks. Experience Boost increases
the experience you get after defeating an enemy, Item Boost increases an item's
effect, Air Combo Boost increases the damage your combos in the air do, and 
Drive Boost increases the damage your Drive Forms do. All Boosts are extremely
helpful and choosing the sword on Day 3 allows you to get them earlier than 
usual.

-It may be a hindrance, but level up your Drive Forms as soon as possible. The
Growth Abilities, while not essential, are very helpful in overcoming the 
game's challenges.

-Money is scarce, but I always seemed to have just enough. Defeat enemies at 
every available chance to ensure the maximum amount of funds. Don't worry about
buying Potions, Tents, or Ethers. Weapons for Donald and Goofy are more
helpful.

-Always equip things that increase your AP. Sora's abilities are important, and
AP is one of the most important stats of the game. Numerous AP Ups can be found
throughout the course of the game. I used most of them on Sora.

-Go out of your way to search for destructable items. They usually drop Munny,
and Munny helps keep your equipment for Donald and Goofy up to par, as well as
keep your items stocked.

The intro FMV for this game is amazing. It's a recap of the events of Kingdom 
Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, meaning if you haven't played 
either (Blasphemers!), this'll help you understand some things. At the end of 
the FMV, you'll meet your new character. This blonde haired kid wakes up in bed
and you are introduced to Twilight Town.

-------
-Day 1-
-------

You start off playing as this kid named Roxas. Your friends, Hayner, Pence, and
Olette are discussing something that was stolen, and how Seifer (FFVIII fans 
know him) is blaming them. Not only that, but it seems the word _____ has been
stolen, too! What kind of thief can steal something and it's word!?

This level is a simple tutorial stage. After the numerous cutscenes, the game
will explain how to move, jump, control the camera, and lock-on to targets. 
After some more cutscenes, you encounter Seifer and his crew (which now 
includes Vivi, the cute and badass black mage from FFIX, and one of my favorite
characters), and you are thrust into your first battle!

Three toy weapons lay on the ground. A club, a hand guard, and one that looks
like a staff. It doesn't matter which you choose, but whichever you choose
gives a +1 to that stat (Strength, Defense, or Magic). If you want to go for
a winning combo in the long run, choose the Handguard to get an increase in 
Defense.

Now it's time to fight Seifer!

Use X to attack, and press it multiple times to perform combos. Seifer can hit
hard, so try to pin him in a corner with successive combos. If you aren't able
to, then keep moving and jumping to dodge his attacks. Once you defeat Seifer,
a cutscene starts again.

The real thief is revealed to be a flying, creepy-moving white thing! Follow it
through the woods to eventually reach the Old Mansion (??? when you first enter
the area). Approach it and press Triangle, and it seems to speak to you. Then,
a battle with it starts!

Your attacks do nothing to this thing, so just keep beating on it to no avail
until a cutscene starts. A mysterious weapon shaped like a key appears in the
hands of Roxas, and you're thrust back into battle. Use the Keyblade to destroy
this thing. It should go down after about three combos. Use the Reaction
Command to circle around it and allow you to attack it more. For future 
reference, this creature is of the Nobody class, called a Dusk. You're given a
short tutorial on orbs after the battle, then it's back to cutscenes.

Flashbacks of Kingdom Hearts occur, and you're introduced to a mysterious 
character in red named DiZ. Awesomely enough, DiZ is voiced by Christopher Lee,
who has one of the best voices ever.


-------
-Day 2-
-------

Seems your friends want to go to the beach, and decide to force you to go with
them. After the cutscene, you're given a short tutorial on saving (save your
game if you want), then leave the area. In the next area, head North (to the
??? exit) and another cutscene will start. You're given the TWILIGHT TOWN MAP.
Then it's time to go to work.

There are six different jobs available. Three can be started from Station
Heights (where you start off), and three more can be started in Tram Common
(South of your position, on the map).

The goal here is to get 1,250 Munny. Getting this amount will get you an boost
to your AP stat. However, you do not have to accomplish this goal. You can stop
with as little as 10, or as much as 1,840, just go talk to Hayner outside of
the Train Station when you're ready. However, when you get 1,850, you're 
instantly brought to Hayner.


Mail Delivery (Station Heights)-
================================

For this job, Roxas rides down the street on a skateboard. There are three 
people, and two birds on this street, and you have to deliver one letter to
each of them. To deliver a letter, you hit the Triangle (Reaction) Button when
it shows up on the screen when you're near the person. The second bird is hard
to get. You have to to press Triangle near the rail going downwards, and at the
end it'll launch you into the air, right near the bird. Press Triangle to
deliver the letter before you fall.

Complete this mission in 20 seconds or less to get 50 Munny.
Complete this mission in 21 to 60 seconds to get 30 Munny.
Complete this mission in 61 seconds or more to get 10 Munny.


Cargo Climb (Station Heights)-
==============================

The goal of this job is to use your weapon to push the cargo up the hill, and
into the garage. Use R1 to lock onto it from behind, and use repetitive combos
to force it up the hill. Occasionally, a combo will knock the cargo into the 
air. If this happens, immediately jump up and deliver a blow to it in the air
to send it flying towards the garage. If you miss the oppurtunity to hit it in
the air, it'll come crashing down, and causes a shockwave on the ground. This 
can damage you, so dodge it if this happens. Try to keep the cargo as centered
as possible.

Complete this mission in 30 seconds or less to get 50 Munny.
Complete this mission in 31 to 60 seconds to get 30 Munny.
Complete this mission in 61 seconds or more to get 10 Munny.


Grandstander (Station Heights)-
===============================

This job makes Roxas a street performer. You have to entertain the crowd by
juggling the balloon with your weapon. One hit knocks it up slightly and a 
combo sends it flying. The best way to accomplish this is to lock onto the 
balloon and try to hit it towards a corner. If you can keep it in a corner,
this job is a breeze.

Complete this mission with 20 juggles or more to get 50 Munny.
Complete this mission with 5 to 19 juggles to get 30 Munny.
Complete this mission with 4 or less juggles to get 10 Munny.


Poster Duty (Tram Common)-
==========================

Roxas is put on poster duty for this job. You have to go around the town and
place at least 20 posters in as little time as possible. Look for yellow
rectangles on the wall, and press Triangle to put a poster up. Sometimes you'll
find three rectangles bunched together. In these cases, you can put three
posters up consecutively, by pressing Triangle three times. Plan out a route
that works best for you, and you'll succeed.

Complete this mission in 1 minute and 30 seconds or less to get 100 Munny.
Complete this mission in 1 minute and 31 seconds to 2 minutes to get 50 Munny.
Complete this mission in 2 minutes or more to get 30 Munny.


Bumble Buster (Tram Common)-
============================

Simple job, this one is. There are several groups of bees buzzing around the
area. One group will die after two hits. Use R1 to lock onto a group, and take
it out before moving onto another. The bees attack, but they barely do any 
damage so just take it and shrug it off. There are six groups of bees to defeat
in total.

Complete this mission in 20 seconds or less to get 50 Munny.
Complete this mission in 21 to 60 seconds to get 30 Munny.
Complete this mission in 61 seconds or more to get 10 Munny. 


Junk Sweep (Tram Common)-
=========================

Swing at the junk piles to knock them away. Target one, and get behind it and
aim at the other junk piles. The goal of this job is to get rid of all of the
piles in as little swings as possible. Launching one pile into others causes 
them to disappear.

Complete this mission with 10 swings or less to get 50 Munny.
Complete this mission with 11 to 15 swings to get 30 Munny.
Complete this mission with 16 swings or more to get 10 Munny.


Your best bets are the Poster Duty and Mail Delivery missions. Poster Duty
gains you 100 Munny per game, and it's easy to finish under a minute and thirty
seconds. Mail Delivery is also very easy, as it can be finished in 10 seconds 
and under, and with 50 Munny per finish, it's a very quick way of earning 
money. Once you're done (again, after the recommended 1,050 is collected), head
to the Train Station and speak to Hayner. No matter what you got, Olette will
announce the total as 5,000 Munny. You get +1 to your AP stat if you got 1,050
or more.

However, before you guys get to go to the beach, the money is stolen! Now
you're back to zero! That sucks! Damn those bastards in the black cloaks.


-------
-Day 3-
-------

Before the day actually starts, you're shown several more flashback cutscenes
from some great moments in Kingdom Hearts, like Halloween Town, Agrabah, and
Neverland. We're also shown a blonde girl, that appeared in the intro movie as
well. However, as soon as we start off officially, some weird stuff happens.

After finding his friends, they're barely able to get a word out before they
stop. In fact, everything stops, time itself just halts. The blonde girl 
appears and talks to Roxas. The cutscene continues, and you run into Seifer
(spouting his famous "Chickenwuss" line). However, Dusks soon attack! You don't
have the Keyblade, so you can't destroy them. You're forced to swing in vain
and wait for the cutscene to start  up.

This should be familiar. Anyone who has played Kingdom Hearts knows this area.
This is Roxas' "Dive to the Heart" and they even brought back the great song
that was Destati. Three weapons appear (deja vu, much?) -- a sword, a shield,
and a staff. Choose wisely, whatever weapon you choose decides how you'll gain
your abilities. Choosing the sword means the abilities you gain as you level up
will be more attack-oriented at first, and you'll gain more boosts to offense.
Choosing the staff means the abilities you gain as you level up will be more
magic-oriented at first, and you'll gain more boosts to magic. Choosing the
shield means the abilities you gain as you level up will be more even and
balanced, and you'll gain more boosts to defense.

Personally, I find that picking the Handguard on Day 1 (for the small Defense
boost) and picked the sword now are the best combination. But it's up to you
to choose!

After picking your weapon, you'll have the Keyblade again, and you need to
destroy three Dusk enemies. After defeating them all, you gain your first 
ability - Aerial Recovery. After the short tutorial on abilities, press Start,
go to Abilities, and equip Aerial Recovery. What this does is allow you to 
regain yourself if you're knocked into the air by simply pressing the O Button.
I used it throughout the whole game. Extremely useful.

A chest appears, so open it up with Triangle and you get a POTION. The Item 
Command is added to your Command Menu, and a save point appears. You also 
receive a notice that from this point on, reaching zero HP equals a game over. 
What reaching zero HP did before this, I have no clue, for I did not die. Save,
if you want to, then go through the door.

Head up the stained glass path and take care of the two Dusks that appear. A
chest should be around here for another POTION. As you continue to make your
way up the path, more Dusks appear (for a total of five by the time you reach
the door). After defeating all of them (or even before they're all dead), you
should reach level 2 and get a stat increase in whichever you selected.

After the Dusks are taken care of, use a Potion if your health is low, then go
through the door.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Twilight Thorn                  | N/A               |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Grabs Roxas and begins a chain of attacks. Meant | 
 |    to be countered with Reaction.                   |
 | 2. Electric waves emitted from head, use Reaction   |
 |    to dodge.                                        |
 | 3. Cartwheels across arena. Jump over his moving    |
 |    arms.                                            |
 | 4. Backflips in air, then lands head first on plat- |
 |    form, arms spread. Swims across arena. Move to   |
 |    side of arena to dodge.                          |
 | 5. This follows 4. After swimming across, he lands  |
 |    on his head and begins to emit electric waves    |
 |    from his head while he's upside down.            |
 | 6. Summons smaller Nobodies (Creepers) to attack.   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Seeing as this is Roxas' "Dive to the Heart," it's  |
 | obvious this boss is meant to be the Nobody         |
 | equivelant of Darkside, from Kingdom Hearts I.      |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

This is one big Nobody, but luckily, he's a cinch to beat. As you start off the
battle, white will fill the screen and Roxas will find himself suspended in the
air. Twilight Thorn shows up, and begins his attacks. You'll notice a Triangle
appear on screen at several different times. What does this mean? Press
Triangle, of course! It's covered in the Battle Basics! The Reaction commands 
lead to a series of events and Roxas is thrown onto the platform, and Thorn
slithers off. However, he's not done yet. He turns the world upside down, and
tries to draw Roxas into his big, swirling vortex. Use Reaction when you can,
and you will counter this attack, leaving Thorn stunned on his head on the 
platform. Take this oppurtunity to attack with a few combos.

Now the battle really begins! Twilight Thorns emits what seems to be electrical
waves from his head. Use Reaction to dodge these waves. Using the Reaction 
command repeatedly allows you to ride these waves up to his head, and get a
nice combo in.

Around this point, the boss will probably use move 3 (as detailed above). Dodge
it as necessary, and ride the waves back up to his head to get in as many hits
as possible.

Eventually, the boss will do move 4, which leads right into move 5. Dodge 4 by
jumping to the side of the arena. Then, when he flips onto his head on the
other side, target his head and rush in (using Reaction to dodge as necessary).
Get as many hits on the head as you can, but focus primarily on using Reaction
to keep yourself out of harm's way. If your HP falls low, kill one of the
smaller Nobodies (Creepers) for HP orbs, or use a Potion. I recommend killing
the Creepers, as they also earn you experience points.

After quite a while, the boss will either go back to his standing-attack phase
(if you haven't caused enough damage), or it will simply stand up as the screen
is filled with whiteness, and we're forced to repeat the events of the
beginning of the battle. Let's just say it's the latter, and use Reaction as 
necessary. By the time boss lands, you know you can get some free shots on it's
head. If it's not dead by this point, simply repeat the above tactics to do 
any necessary extra damage, and it'll fall soon.

The rewards for this battle are a boost to HP, and the Guard ability.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

A short scene introduces you to Namine, the identity of the blonde girl, and a 
mysterious cloaked guy (the pickpocket!).


-------
-Day 4-
-------

Some flashbacks of Hollow Bastion from Kingdom Hearts I, and the end of the
game. "Kingdom Hearts is light!" Great line. Anyways, once Roxas wakes up, we
realize that today is the long-awaited Struggle Tournament!

After the many cutscenes, you're finally in control. Talk to the guy by the
chalkboard to learn the basic rules of Struggle, then save your game over by
Setzer. Talk to the guy in the middle of the square and you first Struggle 
Battle will begin!

+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+
| Struggle Notes!                                                   |
|                                                                   |
| Struggle, unlike the other battles in the game, does not revolve  |
| around bring your opponent's HP down to zero. Instead, you each   |
| start off with 100 orbs. The goal is to have more orbs than your  |
| opponent at the end of the battle. Attacking your opponent causes |
| them to drop orbs, and the same goes if they attack you. If you   |
| really want a challenge, try gathering all 200 of your opponent's |
| orbs before the time limit reaches it's end.                      |
|                                                                   |
| Guard is a very useful ability to use for the Struggle Tourney.   |
| However, you don't have enough AP to equip Guard and Aerial       |
| Recovery. You have to choose which one you'll be using. I find    |
| Aerial Recovery to be more useful in general, but Guard works     |
| against Setzer and the upcoming boss.                             |
+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+-+

Your first battle is with Hayner!

Hayner's not very different from the opponents you've faced thus far, except
he doesn't slither around weirdly, and you don't need a Keyblade to defeat him.
Your usual battle tactics work well here. As soon as the battle starts, rush in
and nail him with a few combos to get a lot of orbs dropped. Run around,
collecting them all and dodging his attacks before rushing in for another combo
or two.

Not that hard, was it? After that battle, you get to see an awesome scene of 
Vivi going nuts on Seifer. After Seifer is completely and utterly owned, you
get another chance to save before heading into battle with Vivi.

Vivi is a bit more difficult than Hayner. You'll probably only be able to get 
one combo in at the beginning before he deflects it and launches his counter-
attack. Vivi has a tendency to magically make his NERF bat grow larger, 
increasing his attack range. Try to wait until after he finishes his attacks 
before you move in to attack more and grab his orbs.

WHAT!? Vivi was really a Nobody!? NO, THAT'S NOT FAIR, GRR. Sigh, anyways, 
beat the three Dusks that appear. You should grow to level 3. After that, a man
in a black cloak appears (sporting another awesome voice, provided by Quinton
Flynn, famous for playing Raiden in Metal Gear Solid 2, among other things).
This man takes off his hood to reveal some spiked up red hair. This man is
Axel, and Axel has a thing for fire.

Now we get a real battle!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Axel (First)                    | N/A               |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Throws fiery rings at you.                       | 
 | 2. Kneels down, then rushes behind Roxas and uses   |
 |    rings and fire to do a vicious combo attack.     |
 | 3. Raises fire from the ground to hurt Roxas. Yells |
 |    "Burn!" before doing this.                       |
 | 4. Drops one ring, flames engulf upper body, and a  |
 |    hard-hitting combo follows.                      |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | With Axel's fiery personality, and powers, and the  |
 | spiky rings he uses to attack, I couldn't help but  |
 | get the impression that Axel is a Johnny Cash fan.  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Axel is a tough boss. Your best bet is to lock-on right at the start and un-
leash combo after combo on him. After you score a few good hits, Axel's going
to start hitting heavy on the offense. Jump around, or use the Guard ability to
dodge or stop his attacks.

Usually after you hit him with a combo or so, he'll kneel down. Then, he rushes
up behind Roxas, and goes for a fiery combo, using his rings and his fire
abilities. The best bet to counter this is to run away while he's kneeling,
then use Guard to block his charging attack (or jump away to dodge it).

Sometimes after that, he'll raise fire from the ground. You can tell when he'll
do this because he yells "Burn!" right before it, so it's easy to dodge, and
move in for the attack.

Keep up the offensive and use healing items as needed and you'll be through 
with this battle in no time. You don't get anything for winning, except some 
mild satisfaction.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

DiZ appears! Both he and Axel urge you to think the other is a liar, and
believe only them! What to do? Scream out your friends' names, of course!

Roxas finds himself back in normal Twilight Town, in the middle of the Struggle
Tournament again. Was it all some weird vision? Regardless, it's time to battle
Setzer, the Struggle Champion! If you want to, save beforehand, then talk to
the fat guy in the arena to start the battle!

Setzer is rightfully the Struggle Champion, as he's the strongest Struggler 
thus far (though still a cinch compared to Raiden, er, Axel). As soon as the
battle starts, rush forward and attack with one combo. I say only one, because
usually Setzer will deflect an attack made after your combo finishes. Grab the
orbs he drops, then keep moving to dodge his attacks (he has this really 
annoying one where he spins across the arena, NERF bat outstretched). Target 
him so you always know where he is, and keep watch for openings, which usually
show up after you dodge (or even get hit) with a combo. If he proves too 
difficult for you, just hit him a few times to grab his orbs, then run around,
dodging his attacks, until time runs out. If you have more orbs than him, you 
win.

For winning, you get the Champion Belt, a helpful accessory which boosts your
resistance to elemental attacks (too bad you didn't have it for Axel). However,
winning is not necessary to progress the story. If you lose, the story goes on
in the same way, except you get a Medal, which boosts your strength by one. I
recommend going for the Belt. Regardless of winning or losing, you also get the
Struggle Trophy.


-------
-Day 5-
-------

Sheesh, looks like you guys have been neglecting your homework, and now Olette
is making you get caught up. And what better to write a report on than the 
Seven Wonders of Twilight Town! After the cutscene, save the game if you'd
like, then head outside.

Head North to Station Heights, than North again to the Station Plaza. Once 
inside the Station itself, Hayner and Olette show up, and have apparently found
nothing, so they're going to tag along with you and be virtually useless in
all ways. Your first cutscene shows that the stair wonder is a big bust, so 
you've got six more to go.

Talking to Pence brings up the "Wonder Map" which shows you where four of the
remaining six wonders are. Before getting started on these, explore the whole
area. There should be a total of four chests, and after looting each, you
should have two POTIONS, one HI-POTION, and an ABILITY RING. Definitely equip
the Ability Ring, as it allows you to have both Guard and Aerial Recovery 
equipped at the same time. Awesome deal! Now let's head to the first wonder, 
right down that alley.

"Did you know at the end of the alley, a ball will come out of the wall? Some-
times, there's more than one."

Head into the alley and use Triangle to investigate the wall. Strange balls 
suddenly come from the wall itself, and attack you! Roxas runs back to the end
of the alley, and now, for some reason, it's your job to guide him back into
the alley.

This is a simple mini-game. The balls always come out in shapes so that you can
conveinantly get by them. Just make your way to the back wall, dodging balls,
and press Triangle to examine the wall. Pence shows up and makes an idiotic 
conclusion based on nothing. Great job, buddy! One wonder down, next one, here
we come!

"There's a creepy moaning sound coming from the tunnel in Sunsent Terrace. Do 
you think it could be a ghost --?"

Press Triangle to investigate the tunnel from the outside, and Roxas will 
journey inwards. Inside is Vivi! Who...soon splits into multiple Vivis! Damn
you, Kingdom Hearts II! Stop teasing me! Just give me the damn real Vivi!

Anyways, multiple Vivis surround you, and you have to fight them all off. They
fight in a similar manner to the Struggle imposter Vivi. Usually one hit will
take care of them, and there's 14 in total, so this should be an easy battle.
Pence comes to another dumb conclusion, and we move on!

"Did you know that people have been seeing their dopplegangers in the corner 
of Sunset Terrace?"

Head to the fountain in the Southwest corner of town. Use Triangle to inspect 
it, and a strange, shadow form of you will leap out in attack. He's not really
anything to worry about. He's slow, and he leaves himself open to attacks. Just
combo him repeatedly and you shouldn't have to worry. If you can't get away 
from his own combos, use the effective Guard ability, though be careful, 
because he has it, too.

I think we can say at this point that Pence is, in fact, a moron. The last 
wonder is in another area, Sunset Hill. There's an entrance to it on the far-
West side of Sunset Terrace (where you are now, if you haven't caught on).

"Do you know about the bag on Sunset Hill? It's creepy -- it moves around like
it's alive."

Just follow the path to the top of Sunset Hill, and inspect the bag with
Triangle. After the brief cutscene, get close to the bag and press Triangle to
jump on it. It will run around, and even try to run into trashcans. If it 
succeeds, Roxas falls off, and you have to try again. However, if you press 
Triangle before you reach the trash can, it'll cause whatever is in the bag to
jump over it. Keep jumping over the trashcans until it's stamina depletes.

And it turns out to be...a dog! Wait, why the hell did Roxas jump on it,
anyways? He didn't know what was in it! What if it had thorns all over it's 
body, or a mouth on it's back? What if it had just been some crazy kid in a
bag? He would have crushed it's spine! Does he jump on everything he sees?
Christ...

Regardless, Pence makes himself the fool again, and another cutscene starts up.
Yay, you have to go all the way back to Sunset Hill! If you missed any items 
here on Terrace, grab 'em now before going on.

Long cutscene, and it turns out only Roxas can see the train. Wow! After more
cutscenes, head to Tram Common, then into the Woods. Make your way to the 
Mansion, and another cutscene will start up. Roxas sees the familiar blonde
girl, Namine!


-------
-Day 6-
-------

The day starts off just plain weird! None of your friends can see you, and even
more, they run right through you! When Roxas checks the picture of him and his
friends, he finds that he's no longer in it! Gah! Outside, Axel appears again!
He seems hopeful the prospect that you remember, but your lack of knowledge
about your leader convinces him that you haven't remembered anything. He 
summons some Nobodies to fight you.

New Nobodies appear in this battle, called Assassins. These guys are kind of
difficult. They have a tendency to go underground before popping up and attack-
ing. Sometimes, they'll poke their two arms straight up from the ground. This
is your oppurtunity to attack and stun them, making them vulnerable for further
attacks. Killing them is recommended, as they give the largest amount of EXP
thus far (15!). However, if you don't kill them soon enough, they'll use an 
attack where they implode near you, which causes damage and meanns you get no
EXP or items!

After taking care of all the Nobodies in the area, time freezes again! Axel is
frozen still, so take this oppurtunity to escape. Go South, to the Sandlot.
Here, you'll fight three more Dusks. You should level up to level 4, and gain 
the ability Scan (if you haven't already). Scan allows you to see the HP bars 
of your enemies, meaning you have more knowledge of how much damage you've 
dealt and how much you need to deal. Don't equip it yet, though.

Head through the Sandlot to the Tram Common. If you take the shortest passage
from here to the entrance to the Woods, you'll only fight two Assassins, and 
two Dusks.

In the Woods themselves, you'll fight three Assassins, and two Dusks. Remember,
don't let the Assassins implode! Experience, damn it! Make your way to the Old
Mansion, and a cutscene occurs, where Roxas unlocks the gate into the mansion,
and a mysterious figure with a familiar sword shows up to fight off the 
Nobodies.

Inside the mansion, defeat the Creepers on the main floor. Don't worry about
getting the chests yet, we'll get them soon. Don't go up the stairs yet, 
either. After the Creepers are dead, head into the door on the left, on the 
main floor. This is the Dining Room.

Inside the Dining Room, defeat the three Assassins and two Creepers. You should
hit level five here. After the enemies are destroyed, open the two chests in 
the room for an ELVEN BANDANNA, and a POTION but there are enemies upstairs,
so take care of them. In all, it should be two Dusks, one Assassin, and one
Creeper. After they're gone, open the three chests in the room for two POTIONS
and a HI-POTION. On the second floor, go into the room on the left.

Inside, you learn a bit more about Roxas, and Namine. DiZ and the mysterious 
robed man appear, and take Namine away, but not before she gets her say in. 
You get NAMINE SKETCHES and the MANSION MAP. Save at the save point, then leave
the room. Make your way across the second floor, fighting enemies along the 
way (you should make level six). In the library, Roxas will draw the of the
symbol on the table in, allowing him access to the lower basement. Grab the HI-
POTION from the chest, then leave through the new exit.

In this strange computer room, Roxas will get angry and smash up the computer.
Save before going on, trust me. You should have enough AP to equip Scan along
with your other abilities at this point. Go ahead, if you want to.

Nobodies appear in the large room! Two Assassins and four Dusks. If you're 
lucky, you may hit level seven, but only if you've done your best to defeat
all Assassins killed thus far, and destroyed the occasional extra enemy that I
passed up.

After the Nobodies, Axel shows up, and he's pissed. Flynn displays some great
vocal work here, and not only that, but Roxas pulls out TWO Keyblades for this
intense battle! Fans with a keen eye will note that these two Keyblades are 
Oathkeeper and Oblivion.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Axel (Second)                   | 345 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Throws fiery rings at you.                       | 
 | 2. Kneels down, then rushes behind Roxas and uses   |
 |    rings and fire to do a vicious combo attack.     |
 | 3. Raises fire from the ground to hurt Roxas. Yells |
 |    "Burn!" before doing this.                       |
 | 4. Drops one ring, flames engulf upper body, and a  |
 |    hard-hitting combo follows.                      |
 | 5. Axel engulfs the entire arena floor with flames. |
 | 6. Disappears behind wall of flames, then rushes    |
 |    out with a powerful dash attack.                 |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Nothing to say here! Focus on Axel!                 |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Axel's got the same tricks from his first battle, plus some new ones this time
around. To start off with, he covers the floor in flames at the beginning of
the battle. What does this mean? It means Roxas will take damage slowly every
second he's on this floor. Naturally, I suggest focusing on aerial attacks
and combos at first. Use air combos to take down his first, shorter health bar,
then try and sneak a ground combo in somewhere.

Why the ground combo? Well, your ground combo launches him up in the air, which
opens up the option of using the Reaction attack "Overtaker." Use Overtaker, 
and it's follow-up, Clear Light, to cause some nice damage to Axel, and clear
the flames from the arena floor.

Ground combos work nicely from here on. Occassionally, Axel will teleport
behind the wall of flames and stay there momentarily. Press R1 to lock-on to 
where he's hiding and be ready, because he charges out with a powerful attack.

Keep the assault up (healing if necessary, of course), and you should have him
beat in no time. He'll probably cover the floor with flames sometime before his
death, but if you keep pounding him, he'll be defeated before the oppurtunity
to use Overtaker/Clear Light comes up again! After winning this battle, you get
a boost to your HP stat.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

After the battle, enter the ??? door. You'll see Donald and Goofy in these 
weird tank things, sleeping apparently! But Sora's not around anywhere. There's
just a door leading to another room. Well, it should be obvious what's inside.
Grab the HI-POTION from the chest before going through.

Another encounter with DiZ, and the opening of the pod.

"Sora...You're lucky. Looks like my summer vacation is... over."

Whee, Sora's back! Though it seems he's grown a bit out of his clothes...
Explore the immediate area and open the chests beyond the gate for a MYTHRIL
SHARD and a POTION. Exit the area, and a cutscene occurs. Summed up, it seems
that King Mickey is looking for you! Save at the Usual Spot, then head out. Go
South to the Sandloat and a cutscene with Seifer occurs. Punk wants to fight!
It's quickly broken up though, and the fat dude from earlier says you should
save it for a Struggle battle. However, you can't have a Struggle battle right
now, so just wait until later. Go from the Sandlot to Tram Common.

Before doing anything here, explore all over. Jump rooftops, go into alleys, go
everywhere. There are seven chests in all, containing two POTIONS, a TENT, an 
AP BOOST, a HI-POTION, and two MYTHRIL SHARDS. There's also an alley with three
large piles of junk. If you destroy them, you get two pieces of Munny for each,
equalling 6 Munny in all. It may not seem like much, but it's helpful, for
Munny is scarce. Also, if you want to, you can use your AP Boost on Sora. Now,
if you notice, there are three shops in the area.

 +----------------------------------+  +--------------------------------+
 | Accessory Shop                   |  | Armor Shop                     |
 +------------------+---------------+  +------------------+-------------+

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

The third shop -- the Synthesis Shop -- is not open yet, unfortunately. When 
you're through here, head to the Tram Common area. Unfortunately, jobs aren't
available at the moment, so just make your way up to the Station. However, 
Nobodies attack! 6 Dusks begin the assault, but once they're gone, 2 Dusks and
4 Creepers take their place, and after they're gone, 4 Dusks attack. You'll
probably reach level 7 during this fight, and with it, you'll gain your first
distinct ability. Sword-choosers have the slight advantage here, but overall,
there's nothing big.

A cutscene initiates after you've lost roughly 3/4ths of your health, or if the
battle goes on for two and a half minutes. King Mickey! He gives you Roxas' 
Pouch, which holds the CRYSTAL ORB, and 5,000 Munny. You also receive the
SECRET ANSEM'S REPORT 2, which reveals quite a shocking revelation about the
first game. The cutscene continues into the train station, and Olette becomes 
confused, for you both have the same Pouch! She doesn't remember Roxas at all!

You'll have brief control here, and you can use it to open three chests in the
Station. They contain a Potion, a Hi-Potion, and an Ether. When you're ready,
talk to Donald and choose "Get on."

Obtainable Items: Potion, Hi-Potion, Ether x2, Mythril Shard, Tower Map,
                  Mythril Stone, Star Seeker Keyblade


Open all the chests in the area to get a POTION, a HI-POTION, and an ETHER. 
Approach the very fat guy standing at the door to the tower and a cutscene 
begins. It turns out to be Pete, who was once banished to another dimension! He
mentions Maleficent, but it's hard to see a brilliant witch/Dark Fairy like
Maleficent working with this bumbling oaf. He summons some very classic 
Heartless enemies, the Shadows. The most common enemies from Kingdom Hearts.

There are only eight of them, so make quick work of them. They only give two
experience points each, so they really suck as enemies. After defeating them,
another cutscene occurs. Turns out this tower belongs to Master Yen Sid, King
Mickey's teacher! For those not in the know, Yen Sid is the Sorceror from the 
short "The Sorceror's Apprentice" which is part of the musical Fantasia. It's 
also "Disney" backwards. After the cutscene, you'll end up inside the tower,
much to the dismay of Pete.

Open the chests inside to gain a MYTHRIL SHARD, and an ETHER. Save, then make 
your way up the staircase and go through the mist. On this staircase, you'll 
find three Shadows. Get rid of 'em easily, and move up to the doorway and enter
the room. Inside, kill ten Shadows, and a quick cutscene will occur. Go through
the door, and go up the next staircase (you'll have to fight five Shadow 
Heartless here). Go through the door, and we're introduced to a "new" kind of
Heartless, the Soldier. Take out the four Shadows and the initial Soldier to
cause four more Soldiers to appear. Donald's right, this is just Heartless, 
Heartless, Heartless!

On the final staircase, you'll fight two Soldiers and three Shadows. It should
be easy to get rid of them. Note, you can use a Reaction attack called
"Cyclone" against the Soldiers. Go through the final door...

And we reach Yen Sid! A long cutscene ensues, and you're given brief control.
Go to the big chest in the corner and open it up for the TOWER MAP, then go to
the book on Yen Sid's desk and read each part -- The Beginning, Interlude, and
The Future Story. Afterwards, talk to Yen Sid and choose the option 
"Actually..." Now, you didn't have to read the book, but it's slightly 
interesting, so there's no harm in it.

Another cutscene follows, and you're informed of your new enemy -- The
Nobodies. Not just the plain Nobodies you're used to fighting, though, it's
also revealed that a group called the Organization XIII exists, and they are
in-fact, Nobodies. Strange...King Mickey, and DiZ's mysterious warrior 
wore those same black cloaks...

After the cutscene, go into the door on the left. Inside are Flora, Fauna, and
Merryweather, of Sleeping Beauty fame. If you talk to the Flora (red), you'll
be able to get your new clothes. After a brief argument between the three over
what color the clothes should be (and a brief appearance of Maleficent's bird,
Diablo), the sisters finally decide on a nice attire. Not only that, but this
attire allows you to use the very new Drive Forms. A basic rundown of Drive
Forms is explained above, in the Game Basics section, and more specific 
information concerning each Form is detailed below, in the Drive Forms 
section. At the moment, you only have Valor Form (which you get by combining 
with Goofy, meaning he must be in your party to use this), but the awesome 
thing about this Form is that it allows you to wield TWO Keyblades. Since you 
only have one, the good faires provide you with a new Keyblade -- the STAR 
SEEKER.

The game itself explains the Drive Forms after the cutscene, and you can press
Start to go to your Start Menu for even more information. Anyways, open the 
chest in the room for a MYTHRIL STONE, then go back into Yen Sid's office. He
has a surprise for you...THE GUMMI SHIP! Yes, the hated ship from Kingdom
Hearts is back, though I'll tell you now, it's gameplay pieces aren't as bad.
Yen Sid gives a somewhat-brief speech before Sora, Donald, and Goofy leave. 
Strangely, Yen Sid gets an evil grin on his face and disappears in a flash of 
white. That doesn't seem very good. Not only that, but it seems she has
returned, as well...

Chip and Dale are back, with voices this time! After that, you get to control
the Gummi Ship. Sora's disappointed at only one world being available at the
moment, but Goofy's confident it's one you know. Save your game (press Start to
bring up the option), then make your way to the world and press Triangle to 
land at...

Before even being able to walk back here at Hollow Bastion, we're treated to
a brief cutscene of Pete searching Maleficent's castle for any sign of her.
He seems to have lost hope, until he spots Diablo.

Finally back at Hollow Bastion, the gang realize that Heartless are in town, 
and they may have to do some fighting. Explore the main square area before

Something odd erupts from the ground. Sora finds  +---------------+---------+

gang in a friendly manner, but a group of No-     | Ether         | 150     |
bodies appear and break up the party. Five Dusks  | Tent          | 100     |
appear first off, and once they're defeated a new +---------------+---------+
enemy, called a Samurai, appears. Samurai are vicious, and hard-hitting, but 
they give some good EXP, so don't hesitate to take them out. A short cutscene
will play out, then you'll get the MARKETPLACE MAP and be instructed to visit
Merlin.

Before heading to Merlin's house, take a moment to explore the whole screen,
and take out the different groups of Heartless that appear. Once they're gone,
you're free to search the area and find all the chests. Open 'em up to get an
AP BOOST, DRIVE RECOVERY, MYTHRIL SHARD, TENT, and HI-POTION. When you're
ready, head into Merlin's House.

Oh, lookie! It's the old gang from Kingdom Hearts! Leon, Cid, Aerith, and
Merlin! Oh no, Aerith's voice sounds terrible! Cid's ain't great, either.
You'll get the MEMBERSHIP CARD after the cutscene, and your first spell, the
BLIZZARD ELEMENT! Speaking of Magic, you'll get a short tutorial on Magic
after the cutscene, and you can learn about the new "MP Charge" feature by 
going to the Start Menu. Take this oppurtunity to Save. Outside, head to the
Bailey (it's up the stairs, the ??? exit).

Squall--err, Leon, is worried about an evil-looking castle across the way, 
which looks to have a festering pit at it's base. He also points out two 
Nobodies walking towards the evil castle. A mysterious voice speaks, and a
group of Nobodies appear!

Donald and Goofy are taken out of your party. You have to fight by yourself, 
but Leon provides some AI back-up. You have to protect the Gate (it has a
health bar, displayed at the top-left corner of the screen). The Nobodies come
in groups, with the first one being mostly Dusks. After that, the groups 
consist of Samurais, Creepers, and Dusks. If you're feeling overrun, stay by
the gate and focus only on the ones that attack it. Leon can take care of the
others. However, if you feel a bit daring, you can go into the midst of battle
and kick some ass alongside Leon. If you're lucky, you might even gain a level
or two. For completing this battle (killing everything) you get another spell,
the FIRE ELEMENT.

Organization XIII appear, and the song during this scene rocks. An Organization
XIII member appears before Sora and co. and confuses Sora with some odd 
statements. After he leaves, it turns out that the Membership Card reveals a
Keyhole which Sora uses to continue his journey! You also get SECRET ANSEM'S 
REPORT 7. That's all in Hollow Bastion for now!

Two new routes have opened, both blocked by doorways! This is where the new
Gummi Ship minigames come into play. The Gummi Ship gameplay has been greatly
expanded from the first game's borefest, so it shouldn't be too much of a 
chore to do them both. Once both are cleared, head to The Land of Dragons (the
right world).

Recommended Level: 10

Obtainable Items: Mythril Shard x3, Ether x2, Hi-Potion x5, AP Boost x3,
                  Recovery Recipe, Village Area Map, Encampment Map, Hidden
                  Dragon Keyblade.

We start off with a cryptic scene, as a large, evil-looking dude stands among
the burned ruins of a village. A familiar dragon names this man as Shan-Yu, a
Hun warrior. Sora and the gang reunite with Mushu (who helped them in Kingdom
Hearts as a summon), and meet Mulan, who is trying to disguise herself as a 
boy (Goofy notices it, but Donald and Sora are pretty blind to it).

Before gameplay starts up again, you're brought to the Party Menu. You have the
option of keeping Mulan (Ping) in your party, so go ahead. But make sure you
switch Donald for Goofy. You can only use Drive if Goofy's in the party, so 
keep him around!

A second Command Menu has also been added. Press Left on the Directional
Pad to go to the second Command Menu, or if you're at the second Command
Menu, press Left to go to the original one.

Open the three chests behind you for a MYTHRIL SHARD, ETHER, and a HI-POTION.
Talk to the Moogle and select Synthesis to turn in your items (can't make
anything yet). Don't buy anything, and save your game. Head into the next
area when you're ready.

Nothing to see, so just walk forward to initiate a cutscene. Meet the new
recruits, along with Captain Li Shang. But the introduction is cut short, for
Heartless attack!

A similar aspect to Struggle is introduced -- Morale. The bar at the top-right
is Morale, and if it is fully depleted, it's game over. Defeat enemies to
gain orbs to refill the Morale gauge. Even after you defeat them all, Li Shang
still believes Mulan (Ping) is unproven in her combat skills. You get the
ENCAMPMENT MAP, and you're turned to the game. Speak to the Captain to bring
up three short missions. Note that all these missions have you keeping the
Morale up.

"Surprise Attack"
"A strange figure was seen at the Checkpoint! Head there quickly
 and defeat the enemy!"

You arrive at a new area called the Checkpoint. There are 15 Heartless in
the area. It's pretty easy to defeat them all. If you need to, then use
Drive Form (though I suggest saving it). You're introduced to a new 
Heartless here, Nightwalker. These guys are pretty offensive, so handle
'em quickly.

"The Ambush"
"A mob is heading for the Checkpoint. Stop them while keeping an
 eye out for strange enemies."

Again, you're at the Checkpoint. All together, there is eleven enemies. Four
Shadows, five Nightwalkers, and two Assault Riders (new, tough enemies). The
Assault Riders are going to offer the most challenge. Blizzard magic from afar
works well on them, as does blowing up the carts and TNT near an enemy for
some extra damage.

"The Search"
"It seems the enemy has invaded the camp. Defeat every enemy
 you encounter."

Simple. There are eight enemies (four Shadows, four Nightwalkers). Look over
the Encampment and take each of 'em out, and be sure to keep your Morale up.

For completing all these, you're given an AP BOOST. Afterwards, head to the
Checkpoint. Defeat all the Heartless, then open the chests in the area for:
HI-POTION, and a MYTHRIL SHARD. Also, blow up the carts and TNT for Drive Orbs
(to refill your Drive Gauge, if you've used it) and Health Orbs (in case you
need some HP). Head into the next area, to the mountain pass.

Here, rocks are in your away, along with three Heartless. Take out the 
Heartless enemies, and use Reaction to take down the wall of rocks, then 
defeat more Heartless and take down another wall of rocks. Wander around the
new open mountains to take out more Heartless (beware Assault Riders), and 
collect the various items from the chests: HI-POTION, MYTHRIL SHARD, ETHER, and
RECOVERY RECIPE. The Recipe is very important for synthesizing. When you're
finished, break down another rock wall and head forward to the next area.

You arrive in the snowy village. You get the VILLAGE AREA MAP automatically
after the cutscenes. Afterwards, talk to the Moogle and choose Synthesize to
turn in your items. Free Development is unlocked, but you still can't make any-
thing yet. Save just outside of the village, then enter the mysterious cave.

Set off the carts and TNT for any Drive/Health you may need, and open the
chests for HI-POTION and an AP BOOST. Go into the main part of the cave. As
Admiral Ackbar would say, IT'S A TRAP!

Many Heartless ambush you, and worse yet, Goofy and Donald are sealed away!
It's just you and Ping for this battle. Use Blizzard on the Assault Riders if
they prove trouble, and the Guard ability helps as well. Once they're all dead,
you and Ping get some rewards. Sora learns the ability Slide Dash (very useful,
equip now) and Ping learns Hyper Healing and gets an HP Boost. Back outside...

...the village has been burned! It was Shan-Yu! Save your game, then head 
further up the mountain. Open the chests here for AP BOOST, and a HI-POTION.
Blow up the carts if Drive or Health is needed, then head up yet again.

It's Shan-Yu! And an army of Heartless! Ping, Donald, and Goofy are all taken
out of your time! You have to fight a horde of Rapid Strikers (flying yellow
things) and some Bolt Towers (long orange things), and survive a whole minute.

My record for Heartless killed is 36. You can probably beat it!

Afterwards, Mulan's true identity is discovered, and she is dishonored. She
also becomes Mulan in the menu, rather than Ping. The Limit Command is added,
and in battles, you get to use your new Limit attack. The first one can only be
used with Mulan, and is called Red Rocket. For upcoming events, I recommend
keeping Goofy in the party, and filling your Drive Gauge up to 3.

Head to the Village, and make your way to the Mountain Trail. Beat your way
through the Heartless, and go to the Checkpoint before finally heading towards
the Imperial City. Take out the Heartless group that greet you at the Imperial
City entrance, then run forward!

Shan-Yu tries to get the Emperor, but Li Shang saves him, and they retreat 
into the palace, leaving you to deal with Shan. Thanks, guys...

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Shan-Yu                         | 442 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Charges across arena, sword out.                 | 
 | 2. Leaps into the air in a spirial, sword out-      |
 |    stretched.                                       |
 | 3. Sword-swipe combo.                               |
 | 4. Locks swords with Sora, use Reaction Commands.   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Red Rocket, the Limit command, is very useful in    |
 | this battle, as it can damage Shan, his bird, and   |
 | any Heartless enemies nearby.                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Shan-Yu may look intimidating, but he's a cinch. Start the battle off by going
right into Valor Form. Rush forward and hit Shan-Yu with repeated combos. You
should be able to do quite a bit of damage (I took over a bar and a quarter of
his health) by the time Valor Form runs out.

Once it does, you'll notice another piece of Shan's plan -- he has Heartless
attacking the gates to the palace. The palace gates have a health bar, and if
they are fully depleted, it's game over. If they're a problem (usually they 
aren't, your teammates have a great habit of taking them out), abandon Shan for
a few moments and help protect the gates.

Before moving back to attacking Shan, focus on his falcon. It can be quite a
pest, as it's speedy and has decent-hitting attacks. Once it's dead, all you
have to worry about is Shan, who, luckily, isn't much to worry about.

A few more combos should easily take care of Shan-Yu here. For winning the
battle, Sora gets a boost to HP and the ability Aerial Sweep. Donald and Mulan
get a boost to HP, and Goofy gets the ability Goofy Turbo.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

After a cutscene where Mulan is honored, and things seem okay, you're given a
new Keyblade...the HIDDEN DRAGON!


+-----------------------+
| G U M M I   S P A C E |

Nothing much to do here. Save if you please, then head to Beast's Castle (which
should already be unlocked, thanks to your early Gummi runs).

Recommended Level: 13

Obtainable Items: Tent x3, Hi-Potion x3, Mythril Shard x5, Castle Map, 
                  Drive Recovery, AP Boost x2, Basement Map, Mega-Recipe,
                  Cure Element

The gang enter an unknown castle, but it's owner is soon revealed, thanks to a
monstrous roar. It's the Beast! However, rather than greeting your old friend,
a lurking Heartless draws the gang's attention, and you head into the room to
exterminate pests from Beast's Castle.

After taking out the many Heartless, a cutscene plays. Beast takes care of a 
few himself, but he ignores Sora and co. and removes his rose to another 
location. Once the room is cleared, you'll have access to the Moogle and Save
Point in the room. Turn your items in to the Moogle using Synthesis, then save
if you need to. Let's take a brief moment to organize Keyblades. Unfortunately,
the Hidden Dragon Keyblade you just received isn't that useful, as it decreases
your Strength. How do we get a more useful one? Simple. Equip the Hidden Dragon
as your Valor Form Keyblade, then equip Star Seeker as your main Keyblade. 
Finally, equip Kingdom Key as your Valor Form Keyblade. Star Seeker adds an
additional slash to your air combos, and it boosts your Magic by one, without
taking off any Strength. When you're ready, head out.

In the main entrance, there are enemies by the front door and at the stair-
case. Our goal is to head right of the staircase, to the East Wing Hall. In
here, there are some more Heartless to take care of. There are also some 
chests, with items you can pilfer. Open 'em for a TENT and a HI-POTION.

Follow the hall through to the only room, and head in. Donald rudely barges in
and you guys find Belle, with absolutely no clothes on! Err, just kidding. She
seems to be worried about the Beast and gives you the task of finding out what
is wrong. The room has two chests, one with a MYTRHIL SHARD, and one with the
CASTLE MAP. Save if you like, then leave. Trek your way back to the Main Hall,
then take the staircase leading up to the other side.

Explore the whole West Wing Hall, taking out the numerous enemies that appear
throughout it. When you're absolutely sure all Heartless beings have been 
destroyed, go for another treasure hunt. The chests in here contain a TENT, a
HI-POTION, two MYTHRIL SHARDS, and a DRIVE RECOVERY. When you're ready, go
check out the snoozing wardrobe against the wall...

The Wardrobe won't let you pass, so you'll have to take matters into your own
hands. When she's asleep (indicated by the Z's above her head) move to the left
side of her and rapidly press Triangle to push her out of the way. Watch your
Command Menu, though. Where "Push" usually appears as a Reaction, "Wake" will
sometimes appear, meaning the next time you press Triangle, you'll wake her up.
Stop your pushing before "Wake" appears, and push her in bursts. When she's out
of the way, she'll wake up and tell you a tale of the Beast, though she'll 
leave it very unfinished.

In the next room...you're unfortunately ambushed by an unwilling-to-budge
Heartless door!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Thresholder and Possessor       | 137 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Swipes you with outstretched arms.               | 
 | 2. Evil breath comes from their mouths.             |
 | 3. Creates a large ball of Dark Energy that breaks  |
 |    into multiple balls.                             |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | If the small Heartless are getting too annoying,    |
 | take a moment to defeat them. Use Reaction Commands |
 | to defeat the Hook Bats and the Gargoyles easily.   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Let's start off with a nice assault against Thresholder. Immediately go into
Valor Form and rush the creepy door with the long arms. Beat away on it, and
it's HP bar should go down fairly quickly. When it's completely dissipated,
Possessor reveals itself. A floating purple ball that kicks your ass. Yeah.

Possessor floats around the room, doing nothing. Lock on to him early on and 
chase him down, getting in as many hits as you can before Valor Form wears off.

You're not going to be able to fully deplete his HP the first time, and he'll
eventually retreat back into Thresholder. Around this time, the wandering 
Heartless in the room are probably getting on your nerves.

Stay to the back of the room to avoid Thresholder's outstretched arms. The 
Heartless in the room will make their way back to you, giving you the oppur-
tunity to destroy them without taking damage from the Thresholder.

Once you've eliminated the few remaining waves of Heartless, make another
attack run on the door. Approach from the side as you head in, and unleash
combo after combo. Possessor will soon be released again, and you'll be able
to pound on him and put an end to the battle. For winning, Sora gets the
ability Upper Slash, Donald gets the ability Donald Fire, and Goofy gets an
HP Boost.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Hard battle? Then you're in for it. Enter the newly opened door, and you'll
come across Cogsworth, Lumiere, Mrs. Potts, and Chip. They reveal the tragic
story of the Beast that the Wardrobe wouldn't, and you all decide to help him
out. Not only that, but you get to use the secret passageway to reach him! Grab
the BASEMENT MAP and the AP BOOST from the chests, save if you feel like it,
then head up.

Make your way to the upper part of the room and speak to Cogsworth to have the
statues moved. In the next room, you have to play a short mini-game to get
through. Cogsworth is on a handle and is hanging on to it to keep the lanterns
down. Your job, along with Lumiere and Mrs. Potts' job, is to light them. To
do this, the three of you must gather around a lantern and use the "Sprinkle"
Reaction Command to light it. There are three lanterns total, and you have to
destroy boxes in the way of the second and third lanterns so Lumiere and Mrs.
Potts' can get to them. Be wary of Cogsworth Grip Gauge! If it empties, the
lanterns go back up and you have to start over. If you notice it's low, and 
don't think you'll be able to light the lantern, run to Cogsworth and use your
Reaction Command to refill it for him.

After lighting all three and watching the cutscene, open the chests inside the
basement hall for a MYTHRIL SHARD, and a HI-POTION. Take the staircase in front
of you (though open the chest for an AP BOOST) to reach the hall to Beast's
Room. In this hall, you can take out the few Heartless that litter it, then 
open the chests for a TENT and a MYTHRIL SHARD. Then follow the hallway through
to Beast's Room.

An Organization member is manipulating Beast...we have to stop this!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | The Beast                       | 156 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Claw rush.                                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | You can use "Wake Up" several times throughout the  |
 | battle to stun the Beast and leave him open for     |
 | attacks. However, I find it easier to just attack   |
 | him and use "Wake Up" when his HP reaches zero.     |
 | That way, you don't have to do any recharges.       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Fighting against the Beast is amazingly simple. Unleash combo after combo
on him. Don't get trapped in a corner, and lay the beat down on him. After
you deplete his HP fully, use Triangle to activate Cogsworth "Wake Up" command.
Press Triangle repeatedly to charge him up, then a strong beam of wake-upness
will zap the Beast, bringing him back to his senses. Sora gains an extra Armor
Slot, allowing him to equip more armor. Donald gets an HP Boost, and Goofy
gets the Defender ability.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

The Beast is back! Apparently the Organization member, Xaldin, was twisting
Beast and turning him into a monster full of rage. Beast is suddenly worried
about Belle! Let's go find her! ...but first, open the chest in the room for a
MEGA-RECIPE.

Fight your way back to the East Wing, and Belle's room. She's not there! 
According to the Wardrobe, she ran off after Xaldin. We have to save her! Put
Goofy in your party, save your game, then head out!

Head to the Main Hall, and take the door in the middle of the staircases. This
is the Ball Room. Belle escapes through the back door, but a giant Heartless
appears!


 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Shadow Stalker                  | 176 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Appears as a giant form in the window and shoots |
 |    projectiles.                                     |
 | 2. Joins with one of the many surrounding pillars   |
 |    and hides, use attacks and Reaction to bring him |
 |    out.                                             |
 | 3. Goes into the ground, and tries to "eat" Sora    |
 |    from below.                                      |
 | 4. Leaps up to the chandelier, brings it down, then |
 |    shoots lasers from the sides. Use attacks and    |
 |    Reaction to bring him out.                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Nothing here, focus on the Heartless!               |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Lock-on is the most important thing in this battle. Constantly lock onto the
Stalker, just to keep track of him! His first attack often varies. He'll
either fly into the window, into a pillar, go up to the chandelier, or go into
the ground. Try and unleash a combo on it before it does whatever attack.

If it went into a pillar, attack the pillar it's in until it's small HP bar
is depleted, then use the Reaction Commands to Release it, and leave it open to
some more combos.

If it went into the ground, watch for a white light to appear at Sora's feet,
and jump away to dodge it's "eat" attack. Attack it when it comes up from the
ground.

If it went into the windows, line up with a vertical frame of the windows in
front of you, or rush towards the pillars on the sides to avoid the huge attack
he lets loose. Then move in for the attack when it comes out of the window.

If it went up to the chandelier, and dropped it down, dodge it's laser attacks
that it bombards you with, then move in towards the Chandelier and unleash
combo after combo on the monster on it.

Anytime the monster is in limbo (floating from one area to the next), unleash
combos on it. Follow these tactics, and the monster will be down in no time.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Dark Thorn                      | 390 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Claw swipes.                                     |
 | 2. Goes invisible, and unleashes combos on you.     |
 | 3. Leaps up to the chandelier, brings it down, then |
 |    shoots lasers from the sides.                    |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Anyone else think Dark Thorn looks a tad bit like   |
 | Final Fantasy Summon favorite Ifrit? Something      |
 | about his red hair, horns, claws and body reminded  |
 | me of the friendly hell demon.                      |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Dark Thorn is considerably tougher than Shadow. The best way to get an early
advantage in this battle is by going into Valor Form immediately. Thorn should
have a considerably smaller amount of HP by the time your three gauges have run
out.

Fighting towards the center of the ballroom causes Thorn to use his chandelier
attack more often, which can be a pain. However, it also allows Sora to use
an absolutely AWESOME three-part Reaction attack where HE brings the chandelier
down, and you get to use it to attack the Dark Thorn. 

Sometimes Thorn will throw Sora across the room. Not fun, it may seem, but if
you're thrown anywhere near the pillars, you can use a quick Reaction Command
to slingshot Sora towards the enemy. You can then unleash some more attacks.

Dark Thorn will sometimes turn invisible. You'll have to search him out, and
attack him with all your might. If you keep the assault up, you'll have Dark
Thorn defeated.

For winning this battle, Sora gets the Retaliating Slash ability and HP Boost
for Sora, Donald and The Beast get an HP Boost, and Goofy gets an Item Slot.
After the cutscene, you get the CURE ELEMENT, as well.

The book is a pop-up book this time, making it look a bit more interesting.
There's a save map on the main book page. Head to Pooh's House. After the brief
cutscene, inspect around Pooh's House to find chests containing an AP BOOST,
MYTHRIL STONE, and a 100 ACRE WOOD MAP.

Good old Pooh Bear is glad to see Sora. But we're suddenly sucked from the
book! Heartless have stolen it! Defeat the Heartless to recover the book, but
upon entering it again...*sigh* all the pages are gone again, and Pooh doesn't
even remember you! We've got to fix this, and we will, all in due time. The
full rundown on the 100 Acre Wood will be given later, in the side quests

Head into the Cave of the Dead: Entrance. Fight off the few Heartless that
appear in this small area, and proceed through to the Passage. An Organization
member appears, and strangely enough, runs away, advising you guys to do the
same. Make your way through the Passage, killing Heartless and dodging 
boulders as you go. Once you're sure you've killed every enemy here (ignore the
smoke clouds, they drop MP Orbs, but they don't hurt you), make another round
and collect the chests, which contain: ETHER, AP BOOST, MYTHRIL SHARD, MYTHRIL
STONE, and a HI-POTION. Head through into the Inner Chamber.

The two chests in here hold a MYTHRIL SHARD and an UNDERWORLD MAP. Dump some
items off at the Moogle, and then save your game before going forward to the
Valley of the Dead. Make your way up the platforms and pathways in this eerie
green chamber, doing your standard Heartless-killing along the way. At the end,
you'll be able to go into Hades' Chamber.

A cutscene with Auron and Hades plays out, and then you have to fight the Lord
of the Underworld. Well, not really fight. While Hades is "red-hot" you can't
do any damage to him. And furthermore, your powers are weak from being in the
Underworld. After making some vain swipes at Hades, and cutscene starts up and
the gang decides it's best to run away instead!

You're back in Valley of the Dead, though this time Hades and many Heartless
are attacking. Ignore Hades, you can't do damage to him. But you must defeat
all the Heartless to bring down the shield and allow you access to the next
platform. A good way of taking out, or at least damaging, the Heartless here is
by using Auron and Sora's combined Limit, Overdrive. Lance Soldiers and Large
Bodys' join the fight on the next respective platforms, so be wary. Once you
take all the Heartless out, you're sent into the Inner Chamber. Save, and head
back out towards Passage. Fight the new legions of Heartless that roam these
halls, then heal yourself before going onward to the next screen...

 | 5. Heads create dark fireballs.                     |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Cerberus, this time around, is easier than his KHI  |
 | counterpart. He doesn't move around the battlefield |
 | as much, and he lacks some annoying old attacks.    |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+ 

Donald and Goofy aren't in your party this time around. Luckily, Auron provides
more than enough back up for a battle of this caliber. Start off the battle by
going into Overdrive and focusing on any of Cerberus' heads. Just try to let
loose as many attacks as possible.

Once your Limit has been used, lock onto the middle head and let loose with
air combos (the Star Seeker Keyblade has Air Combo Plus, to add an extra slash
to your air combos, try using this). Also, when attacking the middle head, you
increase the chances of the outer heads pulling back, then striking inwards and
clutching Sora. Why would you want this to happen? Because it allows you to
initiate a 3-part Reaction Command counter-attack, which takes off a lot of
health, and knocks Cerberus out temporarily, allowing you to go in for even 
more hits.

The battle isn't that hard. Keep up the offensive, and retreat if your health
gets low. It's easy to fall back from the battle, heal yourself, and re-enter
before taking any additional damage. For winning, Sora gets the Dodge Slash
ability, and Auron gets an HP Boost.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Hard, eh? After the battle is done, you'll wind up back at the Underworld 
Entrance. Head up the stairs to reach the good old Coliseum! Head further
forward to meet up with good old Hercules! Herc goes off to fetch you the
Olympus Stone, so you can have your full strength in the Underworld, and Sora
and the gang are left to partake in some training with Phil.

Talk to Phil, and choose "Practice." Pretty simple. Break the urns, and collect
ten orbs. Afterwards, talk to Phil again and choose "Maniac." This one is a bit
harder, but not much. The goal is 100 orbs. Try to break urns when they're 
grouped together, so you can break many of them at once. Also, watch for giant
urns to appear, as they drop larger orbs that are worth more. It shouldn't
take you long to hit 100. Afterwards, talk to Hercules on the field. It seems
the Oylmpus Stone has been stolen! Oh no! And to make matters worse, Hades
appears and causes more trouble.

Head back to the Underworld: Entrance. The flames have lowered, and the
previously blocked pathway is opened. There is a POWER BOOST in the chest 
here. Head through to the Cavern Entrance.

There's a MYTHRIL SHARD right near the entrance. Take out the Trick Ghost
Heartless and don't mind the long fall. In the next area, fight the many Heart-
less around here. Open all the chests for an ETHER, HI-POTION, MYTHRIL STONE,
and a MYTHRIL SHARD. There's an exit not very far from where you came into the
area, that leads back to an unaccessible area from the Cavern Entrance. You can
grab a HI-POTION and AP BOOST here. Head back to the last area, then make your
way through to the Underworld Cavern - Atrium. Grab the chests that carry a
TENT, and an AP BOOST. Head forward and the same Organization member from
earlier attacks, and he's got the Olympus Stone. Introducing...DEMYX.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Demyx (First)                   | N/A               |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Creates 100 water forms to fight you.            |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Get used to fighting these water forms, you'll need |
 | the experience for later!                           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 
This isn't a battle, per'se, as you never actually fight Demyx. In fact, all
you fight here are the water figures he creates with his badass Sitar. There
are 100 forms total, and you have 80 seconds to defeat them all. That's a
minute and twenty seconds, people. You may think that unleashing combo after
combo on grouped together forms works well, and while it's not bad by any
means, it's not the best way of heading into this situation.

The best way, you ask? Use the Wild Dance Reaction Command on the water forms,
and repeatedly press Triangle to swing it round and round, and finally throw
it into the air, where it sucks in and destroys other forms. Using Wild Dance,
you should be able to destroy all 100 forms before the timer runs out easily.

For defeating Demyx's err, forms, Sora and Goofy get HP Boosts, and Donald gets
the ability MP Rage. You also receive the Olympus Stone, allowing you to use
your full abilities.

Head through the doorway, and you reach The Lock. There are chests with an AP
BOOST, MYTHRIL SHARD, and CAVERN MAP. There's also a save point, which I
suggest using. Then, use your Keyblade to free Meg. And you're forced into a
battle with Pete...

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Pete (First)                    | 264 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Throws bombs at you.                             |
 | 2. When angry, rushes forward in repeated tackles.  |
 | 3. Creates a shockwave on the ground, after dancing.|
 | 4. Brings boulders down from the ceiling.           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Pete's invincible phase is a pain in the ass. You   |
 | can't do anything about it until the second phase   |
 | of the battle, though.                              |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Right now, you have to focus on protecting Meg. Her life bar appears in the
top-left corner of the screen, and the red on it will grow in accordance with
the damage she takes. Take a quick moment at the start of the battle to get rid
of the annoying Hook Bats, then, when they're eliminated, go into Valor Form
and attack Pete relentlessly.

You'll only be able to get in a combo to a combo and a half before Pete goes
"invincible" and makes a shield. This only lasts a few seconds, so keep an eye
on him and go back on the offensive when the shield goes away. After you almost
deplete all of Pete's HP, a cutscene starts and the second part of the battle
commences.

Hercules has arrived, and this battle becomes much easier. When Pete becomes
"invincible" and gains a shield, you can knock him into Hercules using the 
"Pinball" Reaction Command. This only gets rid of his shield, so once it's 
gone, move in for some swift attacks. You can also use the Reaction Command
"Aura Guard" when near Hercules, to protect you from Pete's attacks, like the
boulders he summons.

When you finally win the battle, Sora gets the Trinity Limit ability, which
is incredibly useful and fantastic. Goofy gains the ability Hyper Healing, and
Donald gets an HP Boost.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You're almost immediately thrust into another battle, this time with the
vicious Hydra!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Hydra                           | 462 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Whips tail at you.                               |
 | 2. Uses lightning bolts against you.                |
 | 3. Uses black projectile balls of death.            |
 | 4. Bites at you.                                    |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Megara can be found cheering you on just on the out-|
 | side of the battlefield. She'll toss you HP Orbs if |
 | you need 'em.                                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

You start off only fighting one head. It will swing its tail to attack, and 
sometimes moves it's head down to bite. Take the oppurtunity while it's head
is down to attack relentlessly. When you deplete it's HP bar, it's head will
get all crooked, and you'll have a Reaction oppurtunity. Use the chance, and
cut off it's head.

It's severed neck will fall into the ground. Three new heads will pop up around
the arena. You can focus on each one, bringing it's HP down and then severing
it, though this can take a while, and runs the risk of a new head sprouting in
an old one's place if you take too long.

Preferably, follow Phil's advice and get on the Hydra's back. You'll then get
the oppurtunity for a two-part Reaction attack, Phil One-Two and the Urninator.
This knocks all three Hydras into a state of unconsciousness, and allows you
the oppurtunity to freely bring their HP down and sever their head. My 
recommendation? Go into Valor Form, and go on a rampage. Not only does Valor
increase the amount of hits you can do, but with each strike, you give more
and more experience to Valor Form, getting you closer to levelling it up.

Once you sever the three heads, the neck pulls itself up from the ground...this
time with seven fresh heads. The number of attacks increases greatly now.
Not only with the standard tail sweeps and bites, but with summoned lightning
bolts and black projectile balls that I've labelled balls of death. At certain
times, two heads will lower and give you the oppurtunity to move in for the 
attack. Occassionally, you might even be able to leap onto a head while it's
low to the ground. This keeps you out of harm's way, and also gives you the
oppurtunity to get a few extra hits in.

Sometimes, you'll get a Reaction oppurtunity for Pegasus Run. For this attack,
Sora leaps upon Pegasus' back and flies around the large monster, making swipes
at each of its heads. This causes massive damage, and if you're lucky, you get
the option several times during the battle.

For winning this battle, Sora gets the THUNDER ELEMENT (giving you the ability
to cast Thunder) and an HP Boost, Goofy gets an HP Boost, and Donald gets an
extra Armor Slot in the menu.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Before leaving the world, you also get a new Keyblade, HERO'S CREST. This is a
Keyblade you should definitely equip.

Recommended Level: 18

Obtainable Items: Star Recipe, Mythril Shard x2, Hi-Potion, Ether, Mythril
                  Stone, AP Boost, Torn Pages, Disney Castle Map

You start off in the Gummi Ship hangar, with Chip and Dale waiting for you to
give the lowdown on what's happening. Save if you need to, then follow the
staircases and head out into the Courtyard.

Heartless literally litter this area. They're all over, and it's hard to walk
anywhere in the Courtyard without being assaulted by Minute Bombs, Soldiers,
and Shadows. These enemies aren't that hard, but their sheer numbers are
annoying. I suggest clearing out the entire Courtyard. It's a long process, but
it offers great experience, and allows you to freely explore and snag the 
chests afterwards, which contain: ETHER, MYTHRIL SHARD X2, HI-POTION, AP BOOST,
MYTHRIL STONE, and STAR RECIPE.

Make your way inside, and you'll be greeted by waves of Shadows. It may seem
like infinite, but it's not quite. A good way of clearing this area? Valor 
Form. Using Valor Form, I was able to take out the wave after wave of Shadows
that greeted you, and reach Valor Level 3 along the way. Head to the library.

Inside, talk to Queen Minnie. Donald and Goofy have the duty of alerting the
castle, and Sora has to take Queen Minnie to the Hall of the Cornerstone. You
get the DISNEY CASTLE MAP here. Open the chest in the room for TORN PAGES 
(these give you access to an area in the 100 Acre Wood). Save if you want to,
then make your way out to the hall. Fight your way through the Shadows that
interrupt your progress and lead Minnie as you go along. You can also try out
her Reaction attack, Faith, which is badassemly awesome.

Once you clear a path to the door, hit Triangle on the door to open it, then
head through. The next room is filled to the brim with Bolt Towers. An easy,
but long method, towards clearing this room is by standing in one place, next
to Minnie, and using Faith over and over. Another way is to rush forward and
charge all of the Bolt Towers, using Combos, Trinity, and everything at your
disposal. For your safety, and Minnie's, I suggest using the Faith way.

Once the room is cleared, take Minnie along to the throne and you win. Sora
gains the Auto-Summon ability and gets an extra Accessory Slot.

Minnie shows the crew the thorns around the Cornerstone, and Maleficent makes
a brief appearance. Everyone decides that the best thing to do is to seek
Merlin for advice. Head to the save point, go to World Map, go to Hollow
Bastion and land in Merlin's House. A cutscene will automaticelly initiate and
you'll wind up back in Disney Castle. Merlin reveals a door and you end up
having to go through it...

Obtainable Items: Cornerstone Hill Map, Drive Recovery, Hi-Potion x2, Mythril
                  Shard, Mythril Stone, AP Boost, Window of Time Map, Reflect
                  Element, Monochrome Keyblade

This world reeks strongly of something...and that something is nostalgia! This
blast from the past black and white segement is one of the most memorable of
the game. Upon entering, the gang finds their looks changed a bit. While Sora
is pretty shocked at his (it looks like he went back to his KHI clothes), 
Donald and Goofy seem pretty familiar with their old looks. Deja vu, anyone?
Things turn awry soon, though, as that bastard Pete shows up...

Explore the area, and open the chests for a CORNERSTONE HILL MAP, and a DRIVE
RECOVERY. Drop any Synth items you have off at the Moogle, save if you wish,
then head to the Pier. At the Pier, don't move towards Pete just yet. Grab the
HI-POTION and MYTHRIL SHARD from the chests in the area, then approach Pete and
press Triangle.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Pete (Past)                     | 123 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Pete punches you.                                |
 | 2. Pete runs around, flailing, hitting anything in  |
 |    his way.                                         |
 | 3. Creates shockwave by falling to the ground after |
 |    running around.                                  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Anyone find it weird that Pete, in his early days,  |
 | yet is very clearly a dog in the future? What the   |
 | hell? I can understand changing looks, but changing |
 | species completely?                                 |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Start off this battle by unleashing a few combos on Pete. Once approximately
half of his life bar is depleted, he should start to run around, hitting you
if you're in his way. Use Reaction (About Face) to send him in a different
direction and wait until he comes to a halt. When he does, initiate Valor Form
and beat the living crap out of him, until the rest of his health bar goes 
away. If you timed it right, and Valor is at level 2 or 3, then rather than
running out of Gauge power before the battle ends, you'll still be in Valor
Form when it ends, and when you resume control after the following cutscene,
you'll be out of Valor Form and still have all three gauges filled. Neat 
little trick, eh?

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Well, it turns out the Pete you were beating on wasn't the Pete you're after.
This Pete is actually the Pete from the past, and isn't up to his evil schemes
yet. Though he's pretty angry that someone's stolen his steamboat, and Sora
and the gang now have to help him catch the culprit.

After the cutscenes, four curtains will be floating around at Cornerstone Hill.
From left to right, it's: Building Site, Lilliput, Scene of the Fire, and 
Mickey's House. Each of these four areas briefly have a "Mayhem Gauge" in the
upper right corner. The goal is to defeat all the Heartless before the Mayhem
reaches it's fullest.

The Building Site contains new enemies, Hammer Frames, along with Minute Bombs
you encountered back at the Castle. Hammer Frames aren't much of problem, nor
are the Bombs. The goal is to take the Bombs out as quickly as possible, for
their explosions cause quite a bit of damage. Eventually, scaffolding will
start to become unstable and you, Donald and Goofy, and the Heartless will be
bouncing up in the air. Use air combos and the Reaction Command Air Slash to
finish them off. For finishing, you get a friendly handshake from Mickey!

The Lilliput makes you three (and any Heartless) giants, and the town small. Or
perhaps, the town was already small, and you're still normal sized? Who knows.
Anyway, Aeroplanes and Hammer Frames riddle this area. Destroy the Hammer
Frames quickly, as they cause the most damage to the town (which you're trying
to protect), and the Aeroplanes are more of an annoyance. If you find your
enemies to spread out to attack them all quickly, use the Reaction Command on
the tower to leap onto it and shoot cannonballs at the enemies, stunning them.
The reward? Err, another friendly shake from Mickey...

Scene of the Fire takes place in front of a burning building. Not only is that
trouble enough as is, but Heartless are trying to make it worse. Hot Rods and
Shadows are the enemies of this area. You should have no trouble dealing with
the Shadows, but the Hot Rods can be a bit of a problem, seeing as after they
get a certain amount of damage dealt to them, they go into rampage mode and
drive across the screen, knocking you to and frow. Dodge their attempted run-
downs, and rush in for the attack when rampage mode is over. Valor Form is
very useful here. And...yet another handshake from Mickey, who just seems over-
joyed.

Mickey's House is the final area. Enemies are literally trying to destroy 
Mickey Mouse's home, by creating a vortex inside that sucks in all his furnit-
ure. Destroy the Shadows and Rapid Thrusters as quickly as possible. This 
shouldn't be too hard.

Once all four are clear, and the whole story is revealed to you, it's time to
track down Pete! The bad one! Luckily, you get a WINDOW OF TIME MAP to help you
along.

Head to the Waterway, and a battle occurs!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Pete (Steamboat)                | N/A               |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Pete throws debris at you.                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Heartless only appear if you fall off the crane. Do |
 | your best not to fall off, and you won't have to    |
 | worry about added pests.                            |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Pete's tryiung to make his getaway with the Cornerstone and we've got to stop
him. He throws debris at you from the steamboat, which you can block and knock
back at him using Reaction Commands. After four or so hits with his own debris,
the steamboat will spin out of control and land near shore, Pete unconscious 
on the cage.

Run up to the boat, and grab onto the crane using Reaction Commands. It will
move you towards the cage, and you'll be able to lay a few whacks into it,
bringing it's health bar down and breaking it some. Watch out, though. The 
crane will move back into it's original position, and if you don't hit the
Reaction Command in time, you'll fall off and have to deal with Heartless, then
repeat the whole process of making the steamboat crash. Make sure you hang onto
the crane, then when it moves back into attack position, unload on the cage and
save the Cornerstone.

For winning, Sora gets the Slapshot ability, Donald learns the Fantasia Limit
and the Auto-Limit ability, and Goofy gets an HP Boost. Hm, Goofy sorta got
shafted...

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Take a brief moment to grab the chest in the area, which contain an AP BOOST,
MYTHRIL STONE, and HI-POTION, then head to the Wharf. Future Pete is picking
on past Pete! Looks like our battle isn't over!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Pete (Second)                   | 784 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Tosses bombs and small explosives.               |
 | 2. Punches Sora.                                    |
 | 3. Creates large shockwave.                         |
 | 4. Shields himself.                                 |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | With no Hercules this time, Pete's shield is again  |
 | impossible to overcome. And don't even get me       |
 | started on the time paradoxes this battle would     |
 | cause...                                            |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Pete's attacking both your crew, and past Pete. Luckily, past Pete helps out
some (but not much during this battle). Use unrelenting attacks on Pete, and 
only back off if you need to heal. Valor Form is advised, as well. Pete soon
decides to change the scenary, and we go from the Wharf to Scene of the Fire.

This isn't quite the Scene of the Fire that you were at earlier (it appears to
be the Wharf, with some added burning buildings), but oh well. Valor Form
should still be in effect, and you should take your oppurtunity to lay some
ass kicking on Pete before it runs out. If past Pete starts running around
crazily, use the About Face Reaction to knock him back into future Pete. Pete
soon decides to change the area to Mickey's House.

Ignore the sucking vortex, and unload some more combos onto Pete. Trinity 
Limit works okay, but because Pete's using his shield again, you can't really
get the full effect of it. Just focus on ground and air combos. If his shield
goes up, back away and wait for it to fall before moving in to attack again.
Yawn.

Next area is a modified Lilliput (modified as in, different from the earlier 
Lilliput, just like Scene of the Fire was different). I wasn't in this area for
that long. I did roughly two combos on Pete and he changed the area that 
quickly. Odd, but whatever. Next, and finally, is the Building Site.

Like earlier, the scaffolding has a tendency to send you and your enemies 
bouncing into the air. Use these oppurtunities to use the Air Slash Reaction
on Pete, which does some awesome damage against the big guy. Just keep up the
attack (though here it gets a bit annoying, because he throws way too many
bombs and the bouncing can be disorienting) and Pete will be out in no time.

For winning, Sora gets the REFLECT ELEMENT, which allows him to use the Reflect
spell, and he also gets an HP Boost. Goofy gets the Goofy Tornado ability, and
Donald gets an HP Boost. 

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Afterwards, you get the MONOCHROME KEYBLADE, and after a humiliating scene for
Donald, you get the Wisdom Form. Wisdom Form is your next Drive Form, and you
have to have Donald in the party to use it. It focuses on magic attacks, and
turns your Keyblade into a gun-like shooting thing. Pretty cool... 


+-----------------------+
| G U M M I   S P A C E |
+-----------------------+

Well, now we get to move onto some more worlds. Atlantica is an option, and if
you want to begin that sidequest, go right ahead. Details on each chapter of
Atlantica will be found in the Sidequests section later on. You can also start
the quest to get back Pooh's memory in the 100 Acre Wood, since you have the
first Torn Pages. However, like with Atlantica, details will be found in the
Sidequests section. You also have the option to go to Olympus Coliseum and
participate in the Pain and Panic Cup, but that'll also be covered in the
Sidequests section. Now, however, we're heading to Port Royal to visit some 
pirates.

Recommended Level: 20

Obtainable Items: Naval Map, Ether x4, Mythril Stone, Mythril Gem, Mythril
                  Shard x3, AP Boost x3, Mega-Potion, Isla de Muerta Map, 
                  Follow the Wind Keyblade

You arrive at an area that clearly contrasts with the overall image of Sora,
Donald and Goofy. Yes, Port Royal is very realistic, and is based off the live-
action Disney movie Pirates of the Carribean: The Curse of the Black Pearl. 
You begin the world at the Rampart. Use a moment to take in your surroundings,
then open the three chest here for the NAVAL MAP, an ETHER, and a MYTHRIL 
STONE. Stop by the Moogle to drop off your Synth items, and also, you should
purchase the Chain Gear shield for Goofy and Victory Bell Staff for Donald. 

Save when you're ready, then head down to the Harbor. Pete managed to get here
before you, and is spilling the beans about you to the evil Captain Barbosa.
However, Barbosa ignores Pete's warning, and decides to see you as a challenge.

It's now time to do battle with the pirates here. At first, you won't be able
to hurt them. However, the moon soon comes out from behind the clouds and you
can see the true form of the pirates. Now you can do damage to, and defeat 
these mangy enemies. Pirates have a weakness to magic, so feel free to use your
elemental spells for that extra umph.

With the pirates destroyed, head into town to stop the ones Barbosa sent in.
Unfortunately, your list of things to worry about grows, as Heartless have
invaded the town. It shouldn't take long to defeat all the Heartless, and 
afterwards, Sora and the gang agree to help Will. You can head to the Harbor,
in attempt to head the pirates off and save Elizabeth Swann, or you can take
a few brief moments to explore the town, kill some pirates and Heartless, and
grab some chests. The chests in this area contain: AP BOOST, MYTHRIL SHARD,
ETHER, and a MYTHRIL GEM. Once you're done item hunting, head out to the 
Harbor, where you'll be introduced to none other than...Captain Jack Sparrow.

Sora has a hidden aspiration of being a pirate, and Jack decides to let you
guys be his crew. You'll wind up on the deck of the Interceptor. You can head
into the cabin for a save point and a moogle, but otherwise just talk to Jack
and choose to go to the Isle de Muerta.

Unfortunately, any time you go anywhere in the ship, you're forced into an 
"in-between" battle with pirates that happens before you land. Take out these
pirates, and when you reach the Isle, Jack hoodwinks the gang and makes 'em 
stay back on the ship, missing all the action. Sora gets fed up, and decides to
trek towards the cave. Save your game, then head Cave Mouth. Take a brief 
moment to defeat the Heartless and open the chests for an ETHER, and a MYTHRIL
SHARD. Head forward more, and a cutscene begins. Will and Miss Swann head back
to the ship, but Jack is no where in sight. You have to fight off pirates for
one minute while Elizabeth and Will prepare the ship. It shouldn't be too 
hard. After winning, you get the ISLE DE MUERTA MAP.

Back on the ship, learn the story of what happened to Jack, then choose to go
back to town. Another in-between battle initiates, and after that, a cutscene.
The Black Pearl has caught up with us. You have to defend the ship, and the
Medallion, fighting off pirates all the while.

Valor Form is helpful for quickly defeating the pirates once you drag 'em out
to the moonlight. There's lots of moonlight on the ship already, so it 
shouldn't be too much of a problem. Take a moment every now and then to use the
Reaction Command on the cannons and fire at the Black Pearl. Don't do this 
while in heavy battle, though, as it leaves you open to attack. Occasionally,
you may get the message that a pirate has the medallion. Locate this pirate
(the one with the medallion will have a thought bubble above his head, with the
medallion in it), kill him and re-claim the medallion. You have one whole
minute to reclaim the medallion, so do your best. Once you defeat all the
pirates, Sora and Goofy both get HP Boosts, and Donald gets the Draw ability.

You end up getting captured, then released. But then it turns out Barbosa's
crew left some nice little presents for you...in the forms of Heartless and
exploding barrels. There are five burning barrels in total, and you have to use
the Launch Reaction Command one each one to save the ship. The barrel icons in
the upper-left corner show which one is about to explode, so keep an eye out 
and target that one first. For finishing this segement, Sora gets an extra Item
Slot, Goofy gets the Second Chance ability and both Donald and Jack get HP 
Boosts.

Back at Isle de Muerta, save your game at the Rock Face, then move forward.
You've already pillaged the Cave Mouth of items, so just kill the Pirates and
Heartless for experience before heading further into the cave.

Boxes of gunpowder line the walls, and as you move through the cave hall, 
pirate leaps out from them in ambush. This area holds little moonlight, so it's
tricky to defeat the pirates. Try luring them into the moonlight and using 
Jack and Sora's Limit attack, Bluff. Once you've cleared out the ambushing
pirates, take a moment to hack away the remaining boxes. The chests in this
area contain: TWO AP BOOSTS.

The next area is the Moonlight Nook. Use the huge space of moonlight in the 
middle to take out the room's various pirates, then open the chests in the room
for ETHER, MYTHRIL SHARD, and MEGA-POTION. I suggest having Jack and Goofy in
your team before moving onward, because we've got ourselves a boss battle!

 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | There are some one-time oppurtunity Reaction        |
 | Commands here. Twin Counter and Riding Shot both    |
 | look really cool, so if you get the oppurtunity to  |
 | use them, don't waste 'em.                          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Unfortunately, Pete summoned the Heartless Illuminator into the battle. 
Illuminator sucks out all the light, leaving the battlefield almost completely
dark, and it's impossible to do any damage to Barbosa, for there is no moon-
light, either. Search the walls for two small beads of light, which are the
Illuminator's eyes, and do a quick combo or two on it to kill it easily.

Light floods in the arena, and now you can kick some pirate captain ass. Use
Valor Form to take off a hefty chunk of his life bar, then use regular combos
until another Illuminator shows up and all the light goes away. Don't worry,
this always happens, you can't avoid it.

Kill the Illuminator again, and re-focus your attack on Barbosa. Use the rarely
available, but awesome-damage doing Reaction attacks like Twin Counter and
Riding Shot if the oppurtunity arises, otherwise, use Sora's Trinity Limit, 
which has produces awesome results.

This isn't a hard battle, and for winning, Sora gets the Aerial Finish ability,
along with an extra Drive Gauge. Goofy acquires the Teamwork Limit attack, and
the Auto-Limit ability, and Donald and Jack receive HP Boosts.

We come into Agrabah by encountering our old, er, friend, Iago. Iago wants to
get back on Aladdin and Jasmine's good sides, but it's hard to tell whether or
not he's really reformed... Goofy thinks we should trust him, though, so let's
try. Before you get a chance to head to the Palace to get Aladdin and Jasmine's
input, Heartless attack. Fight 'em off, going into Valor Form for some extra
power. Defeat Heartless until the cutscene starts, and the gang retreat into
a small shop.

Inside is a Moogle and a save point. Turn in any Synth items you have at the
Moogle, save your game, then head back out. Take your time to explore the main
area of Agrabah, killing all the Heartless on it's roofs and streets, then make
a treasure run and open the chests in the area for HI-POTION, MYTHRIL SHARD,
DRIVER RECOVERY, MYTHRIL STONE, AP BOOST, and a MEGA-ETHER. Make your way to
the Palace (north-east exit) and we find Jasmine, one of the Seven Princesses
of Light from the first game!

Jasmine is wary of Iago, but more importantly, she's worried about Aladdin, 
who's been acting funny lately. She wants you to check on him and make sure
he's okay. Who are we to say now?

Head back out to the main part of Agrabah, and lookie lookie! We found Aladdin!
After he joins the party (keep him and Goofy in), fight off Heartless and make
your way back to the Peddler's Shop. It turns out the Peddler has Jafar's Lamp
and he won't give it to you unless you trade him something else valuable! The
gang decides to search the Cave of Wonders to find a prize worthy of the Lamp.

Head to the Bazaar (south exit) and fight off the Heartless that litter the 
area. Try and destroy a few of the shops, too. Items are hidden in them. Open
all the chests for: TWO HI-POTIONS, MYTHRIL GEM, AP BOOST, and MYTHRIL SHARD.
Then make your way out of Agrabah to the Palace Walls. Out here, open the 
chests for a MYTHRIL STONE and a SKILL RING. Save, then take the next exit out
of Agrabah.

Looks like Pete's reached the Cave of Wonders before you. Why would he be here?
Who knows, so let's just get what we came for! Outside of the Cave of Wonders
Entrance, you can find two chests which contain MYTHRIL SHARD and DRIVE
RECOVERY. Heartless are also out here, so deal with them the only way you
know how, feeding 'em a nice dose of Keblade.

In the Valley of Stone, the next area, rock platforms are spread all across the
cavern, as are Heartless. Explore the room up and down, taking out all Heart-
less high and low. When it's clear, grab the items, HI-POTION, MYTHRIL SHARD,
MYTHRIL STONE, and AP BOOST, then move onward to the Stone Guardians room.

Examine the jewel with Triangle, then walk forward and examine the pedestal 
with Triangle. A short mini-game occurs, in which you have to lead Abu across
the room so he can place the jewel in the pedestal. Sounds easy, right? Wrong.
Waves approach, which damage your party and push Abu backwards. Press
Triangle to make Abu jump over the waves, allowing him to go further. Crystals
also fall, but you don't have to worry about those much. Just follow Abu as he
makes his way across the room, and use Reaction to "Set the jewel!" when you
reach the pedestal. For completing this segement, Donald gets the Donald 
Blizzard ability, and Sora, Goofy, and Al get HP Boosts. Head forward to the
next room (though save first, if you want).

The next room is called the Chasm of Challenges for a reason. Examine the 
stand, and accept to start the challenge. Fight the enemies on each floor, and
beware, for after a set time, the floor breaks away, causing you to fall to
another one. You have two minutes to defeat the enemies on all floor, which
range from simple creatures like Icy Cubes to the harder ones, like Fat Bandits
and Fortunetellers. On the bottom floor, a staircase appears. At the top of the
staircase is a save point (use it), as well as a warp, which brings you back to
the top floor, to repeat he challenge. There are also two chests, which contain
the CAVE OF WONDERS MAP and AP BOOST. Examine the stand to open the door, then
head through.

You find the treasure you're ready to give to the Peddler, but Pete overhears
you and finds out that the Peddler has the Lamp. Leaving you with Heartless to
deal with, he sets off to claim the Lamp.

Defeat the onslaught of Heartless that follows. They're the same enemies you
fought on the Chasm of Challenges, so you shouldn't have too much trouble. 
There is a sticky spot at the end, where you're forced to fight three Fat
Bandits, and in the small room, it's simply no fun. Use your Trinity Limit and
Valor Forms to get rid of them easily. There are two chests in this room, that
contain AP BOOST and SERENITY SHARD. You have to come back to get them, though.
For winning this battle in darkness, Goofy gets the Auto-Healing ability, and
Sora, Donald, and Al get HP Boosts. The gang makes their way back to Agrabah,
to get the Lamp!

Defeat all the Heartless in the main part of Agrabah and make your way to the
Palace. This shouldn't be hard!

Pete and the Peddler are at the Palace. Pete snags the Lamp, but Iago steals
it from him! Good going, buddy! Not only that, but our old pal Genie chooses
this time to make his triumphant return back to Agrabah, and not a moment to
soon! Pete summons two giant Heartless for you to deal with, though, so he can
make his escape!

 | 1. Attacks with his staff.                          |
 | 2. Hurls multiple ice chunks at Sora.               |
 | 3. Creates a block of ice around Sora and the gang, |
 |    freezing them solid.                             |
 | 4. Breathes ice onto the ground, making ice cubes.  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Firagun and Blizzagun are very useful Reaction      |
 | Commands that you can use in this battle. You can   |
 | Firagun when Volcanic Lord is bouncing around and   |
 | Blizzagun when Blizzard Lord breathes ice onto the  |
 | ground.                                             |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

This battle may seem hard, I mean, two huge Heartless at once is pretty 
intimidating. Fortunately, the battle isn't as hard as it would seem, and can
be finished pretty quickly.

The Volcanic Lord starts bouncing around right at the start of the battle. Try
and get under him (sounds crazy, right?) so the Reaction Command Firagun 
appears. This does decent damage to him and knocks him down. Lock onto him 
after this and rush forward, getting in as many combos as you can. Eventually,
he'll explode, leaving several Fiery Globe Heartless in his place.

After Volcanic Lord explodes, Blizzard Lord decides he wants a piece of you.
See, the bosses take turns attacking you. Start off with some air combos to do
hefty damage to Blizzard Lord, and use the Blizzagun Reaction Command when it
appears (whenever he starts to breath ice onto the ground).

Suckily, the Blizzard Form sometimes freezes you and your allies. Nothing you
can do here, except wait until you're unfrozen. If you're unfrozen, but your
partners are unfrozen, a nice Fire spell thaws them out. Eventually, Blizzard
Lord explodes as well, leaving Icy Cube Heartless in his place. Volcanic Lord
decides he wants a piece of you again, and the battle continues.

If you can aim it right, Firagun can launch Volcanic Lord into Blizzard Lord,
causing major damage to both. Valor Form is also extremely useful, allowing you
to get in more hits in less time. Keep repeating this simple process and the
victory will be yours in no time.

For taking out the two Lords, Sora learns the Explosion finishing ability, 
Goofy gets an extra Armor Slot, and Aladdin and Donald get HP Boosts.

After the battle, the crew ensures Jafar can't escape and seal away his Lamp.
You get the WISHING LAMP item, which allows you to summon Genie into battle 
when you need him.

Woah! Twilight Town is back on the map, and it's a level 28 world! Something
must be going on there...before checking up, though, let's make a stop by the
Town of Halloween, and visit our old friend Jack Skelington.

Recommended Level: 24

Obtainable Items: Mythril Shard, Hi-Potion x3, Mega-Potion, Mythril Stone x3,
                  AP Boost x2, Mythril Gem, Ether, Halloween Town Map, Christ-
                  mas Town Map

We start Halloween Town off in the graveyard, and our characters have received
familar make-overs, just so they fit in with the spooky setting. Open the 
nearby chests for HI-POTION and MYTHRIL SHARD, then head forward towards the
Town Square.

A cutscene occurs. We wind up back in Dr. Finklestein's lab, and the good 
doctor is up to his usual experiments, though is getting considerably angrier
with Lock, Shock, and Barrel, who won't listen to a word he says. Not only 
that, but Jack is still infatuated with Christmas, and insists on going to
Christmas Town and meeting the man himself, Sandy Claws. There's a chest with 
the HALLOWEEN TOWN MAP in the room, and a save point as well. Save your game 
before moving on.

Defeat all the Heartless that are causing chaos in the Town Square. After the
cutscene, open the chests in the area to score a MEGA-POTION and a MYTHRIL
STONE. Make your way to the Graveyard and continue kicking Heartless ass. 
Though watch out for statues and gravestones. They have a tendency to fall over
and hurt you. Not fun. Beat your way to the farthest South exit to the 
Graveyard, leading to the Hinterlands. Explore the wooded area and open the
chests in it for AP BOOST, MYTHRIL STONE, and a HI-POTION. Examine the Christ-
mas door and another cutscene occurs, putting you smack-dab in the middle of
Christmas Town!

You start off on lonely Yuletide Hill, which houses only a save point and a 
Moogle. Oh well. Drop your synthesis items off at your friendly Moogle, save
your game, then make your way down to Candy Cane Lane. Heartless have invaded
Christmas Town too, unfortunately, and are just taking away all the good will
spirit in the air. Defeat the roaming monsters (you can use the carousel near
Santa's house to your advantage, hitting the Reaction Command near it causes
some damage to enemies). Once you've managed to clear 'em all out, take a brief
moment and open up the chests for HI-POTION, MYTHRIL GEM, MYTHRIL STONE, and
ETHER. Then head into Santa's House and pay the big guy a visit!

Sora's a bit overjoyed about meeting Santa and being on his list. And on that
topic, I don't even see how Sora could be on his list. I mean, yeah, the kid
saved the worlds, but he wants to be a pirate! That's not true goal! Bleh. 
Things occur in Santa's workshop, and we're put on the case, like usual. The
small chest in Santa's House contains an AP Boost, the large one contains the
CHRISTMAS TOWN MAP. Save your game, then head back outside. There's fresh
footprints on the ground, but before you can follow them, you have to take care
of the returned Heartless in this area. Don't worry, they're no big deal. Make
your way to the Hinterlands, contiously following the tracks.

Heartless have reached the Hinterlands, and are spread through the Graveyard as
well. You know what to do. In the Graveyard, take a moment to collect yourself.
Consider putting Goofy in your party, for Valor Form, and equip any Aerial
abilities that you have for Sora, like Aerial Finish. When you think you're
ready, take the Southeast exit to Curly Hill.

Oogie's back, and Maleficent's ready to cause trouble. She leaves Lock, Shock,
and Barrel to take care of you, along with a special Heartless -- The Prison
Keeper!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Prison Keeper                   | 1140 HP           |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Swings around cage, hitting you.                 |
 | 2. Claws at you twice.                              |
 | 3. Bites once or multiple times.                    |
 | 4. Goes high into the air, and spins around, hurling|
 |    bombs.                                           |
 | 5. Hurls fireball at you.                           |
 | 6. Swallows Lock, Shock, or Barrel, or all three.   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Watch for when Prison Keeper does Swallow. He opens |
 | his mouth wide. If you're quick, you can leap into  |
 | it and perform an awesome Reaction attack, Inside   |
 | Combo.                                              |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

As soon as the battle with this creepy Heartless starts out, rush in, leap up,
and begin assaulting him with air combos. After you connect with two, fall back
and lock onto him. You can initiate Goofy's Limit right now, and use Knockback
on his ass, which works incredibly well, or you could use Jack and Sora's
Limit, which work pretty good, as well. Trinity also works just as good.

Prison Keeper retreats high above the battlefield after he's taken some damage,
and begins raining down bombs. He's impossible to hit while on low ground, so
run up Curly Hill and continue the assault, leaping up from the hill to get 
some whacks in on him. Valor Form can be used to deal some extra damage from
the top of the hill, but also consider using Wisdom Form to be able to reach
him from low on the ground.

Prison Keeper has a lot of HP, a whopping five bars, so expect a very long 
fight. You'll probably need to heal more than once, so retreat far away from
the Prison Keeper before doing so.

The (pretty weak) bonuses for winning this battle are the Hyper Healing ability
for Donald, and HP Boosts for Sora, Goofy, and Jack.

We find out Oogie Boogie is back again, and causing all sorts of trouble. And,
like always, it's up to us to fix things. Yippee. We've got to go all the way
back to Christmas Town. Fight your way through the Graveyard and Hinterlands,
killing everything in your path for the extra experience. In Christmas Town,
save your game at Yuletide Hill and make your way through Candycane Lane as 
you continue to kill Heartless, and finally head into the Toy Factory.

Oogie Boogie's set up a nice little trap for the gang!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Oogie Boogie                    | 371 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Throws dice at Sora which explode on impact.     |
 | 2. Giant boxing glove hammers the belt four times,  |
 |    hitting Sora and destroying green gifts.         |
 | 3. Sends lightning bolts along the conveyor belt.   |
 | 4. Purple gifts on the conveyor belt break open to  |
 |    reveal Heartless enemies.                        |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Keep a close eye on the color around the conveyor   |
 | belts you're going into and want to go to, as it    |
 | indicates where you'll end up. If both are blue,    |
 | you'll end up there. Move quickly when changing     |
 | belts, or you may end up on the wrong one.          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

You don't fight Oogie directly for much of this battle. You're on one of three
moving conveyor belts, all going backwards. Don't stay still for too long, or
you'll be moved backwards towards a wall of spikes. Oogie resides in a control
box above the conveyor belt that you cannot reach. Well, how do we win this
battle, you ask?

Green presents are scattered the conveyor belt you're on. When they reach the
wall of spikes, they're destroyed. However, you can use the Reaction Command
"Fore!" to knock the present up into Oogie's box. Fill his control box with ten
boxes, and the glass will shatter, and Oogie will fall through. Use this moment
to move in and begin your attack on Oogie. Normally, I'd recommend using Valor
Form for extra damage, but Oogie has a set time limit before he goes back up
into his box, and while Valor is damaging, there's just not enough time to put
it to good use. However, Jack and Sora's Limit, Applause, Applause, works 
incredibly well in short time. Trinity and Knocksmash work amazingly, too, but
Knocksmash has the fallback of Valor Form.

Oogie re-creates his control box and hops back up. This time, however, it 
shifts to a different conveyor belt, and you'll have to switch using the 
conveyor hole teleporters. Purple presents also start to appear on the conveyor
belts, and these explode to reveal a Heartless. Ignore these, and continue
knocking presents up to Oogie's box. Your partners can handle the Heartless.
Oogie also has a tendency of sending a giant boxing glove to strike down on 
the conveyor belt four times, smashing you and your partners, as well as green
presents. Make a rush to knock the presents up to Oogie's box before they're
smashed, but be careful not to be distracted and get hit by the spikes.

The most you'll have to repeat the process is probably three or four times, 
and Oogie will go down yet again. Sora gains a new Item Slot, Goofy learns the
Once More ability, and Donald and Jack get HP Boosts.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Jack and Santa make a compromise, and Sally delivers the santa suit to Jack,
who's absolutely overjoyed. However, the suit turns out to be what triggers the
Keyhole to appear, and Sora unlocks a new pathway! Before leaving the world, 
you get the Magnet Element, which allows you to use the spell Magnet.


+-----------------------+
| G U M M I   S P A C E |
+-----------------------+

More options, yet again. Magnet can be used to start the first real chapter of
Atlantica, if you initiated the pre-chapter earlier. However, that's all 
covered in the sidequests section. If you want to progress the story, then we
move on to the Pride Lands. Open the door via a Gummi Ship route, and make your
way to Simba's domain!

We start off with a flashback. Simba, as a child, is rescued in a stampede by
his father, Mufasa. However, when Mufasa leaps from the stampede, his brother
Scar kills him, letting him fall back and be trampled to death.

The first thing you'll notice is that, like in Halloween Town, our heroes
appearances change, to become animals of the savannah. Sora becomes a lion,
Goofy becomes a turtle, and Donald becomes some kind of bird, which is odd,
because isn't a duck a type of bird to begin with?

You start off in an area called the Gorge. Open the three chests for the 
SAVANNAH MAP, an ETHER, and a MYTHRIL STONE. Save, then head through to the
Elephant Graveyard. Now, that Lionness seems to be bothered by those Heartless.
Maybe they don't know that no means no? Anyways, defeat the Heartless and
after the cutscene, explore the area and open the many chests for: AP BOOST,
MYTHRIL SHARD, ETHER, MYTHRIL STONE, and HI-POTION. Leave the area and go to
the Savannah.

The Savannah is just a huge field, and it is, of course, peppered with Heart-
less here and there. No chests are in this area, so either head to the huge
rock formation (known as Pride Rock), or spend some time killing Heartless for
experience and then heading to Pride Rock. It's up to you. Once you get there,
you meet Scar and find out that Pete has once again beat you, and has reached
Pride Rock (in a very ugly lion form, by the way). You're not welcome here for
much longer. Take a look around the area, talking to the various lionesses to
learn of their distaste for Scar's rule, and open the chests for MYTHRIL STONE,
MEGA-ETHER, and PRIDE ROCK MAP.

Go into the small recluse near the area exit, and this is the Stone Hollow, 
where Rafiki, the knowledgable monkey, lives. Save your game before heading
back out. Once everything's done, go back to the Savannah and make your way all
the way across to the Southeast exit, the only one you've yet to visit.

This area is called the Wildebeest Valley, and the first thing that happens is
Sora learning the "Dash" ability for lion form. This ability lets you move at
very fast speeds as long as you hold the Square Button. Fight the Heartless
in the area, like usual and make the rounds of the area for the treasure, which
consists of: MYTHRIL GEM. MYTHRIL STONE, HI-POTION, AP BOOST, and TENT.

The next area is called the Wastelands. It's a twisting, turning pathway, 
packed with Heartless all waiting for you to kill. It's areas like this that
make me wish the platforming element of the first Kingdom Hearts was retained.
Anyways, once they're all dead, the three chests only hold MYTHRIL SHARD, HI-
POTION and MYTHRIL STONE. The Jungle's not much different, so just cut through
the Heartless here and open the three chests here for HI-POTION, SERENITY
STONE, and MYTHRIL STONE. Things are getting boring aren't they? It's okay,
proceed to the next area.

HERE WE GO! IT'S SIMBA, HEIR TO THE THRONE OF GONDOR-ERR, THE PRIDE LANDS, AND
HE IS VOICED BY NONE OTHER THAN CAM CLARKE! After the long cutscene, you regain
control. At the Oasis, there are chests with the OASIS MAP, TORN PAGES, and AP 
BOOST. There's a save point, as well as a Moogle. Turn in your Synth items at 
the Moogle, and buy Lord's Broom for Donald and Dreamcloud for Goofy, then save
your game.

Back in the Jungle, talk to Simba, and after a touching scene, you get the
CIRCLE OF LIFE KEYBLADE. Simba also joins your party. Make your way all the
way back to Pride Rock, killing the Heartless along the way. Make sure to try
out Sora and Simba's Limit move, King's Pride.

At Pride Rock, the rebellion begins. Simba battles Scar, and Timon and Pumbaa
are attacked by the three Hyenas you met earlier, Banzai, Shenzi, and Ed!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed          | 305 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Leaps forward and swipes with claw.              |
 | 2. Tackles forward, knocking you backward.          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | I felt bad during this entire battle, simply        |
 | because of the sad dog noises the hyenas made when  |
 | hit and defeated.                                   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

The main goal of this battle is to defeat the three hyenas, which isn't a hard
task. However, you also have to protect Timon and Pumbaa. Their life bar is
displayed at the top-left corner of the screen, and if it is filled with red,
it's game over.

The hyenas themselves are very easy to defeat. Lock onto one and unleash an
onslaught of combos on it. Keep track of it, and pummel until it's life bar 
goes down all the way. Each has their own life bar, so just repeat the process
until they all take a nice dirt map. If Timon and Pumbaa ever appear to be at
risk of an attack, use the Call Over Reaction Command quickly. If you time it
right, the hyenas will accidentally attack each other, giving you an easy 
oppurtunity to attack.

For winning, Goofy gains the Lucky Lucky ability, while Sora and Donald get HP
Boosts.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

Head to the top of Pride Rock to bear witness to a nice battle. Simba is
fighting Scar atop the mountain, and Sora wants to interfere, but is held back.
It's Simba's battle. After Scar is seemingly disposed of, however, Pete reveals
that Scar actually agreed to become a Heartless, and sure enough, Scar leaps
back up onto Pride Rock and now we get to be involved.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Scar                            | 915 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Spins into the air and scratches.                |
 | 2. Leaps on Sora, and scratches.                    |
 | 3. Engulfs body in flames, then lets out flames in  |
 |    a small area.                                    |
 | 4. Engulfs body in electricity, then lets out       |
 |    lightning in a small area.                       |
 | 5. Rushes around the arena, then attacks.           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Keep an eye out when Scar leaps on you, for during  |
 | this wrestling attack, you can use the Reaction     |
 | Command Counter, which hurls him upwards.           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Scar moves quick, and his attacks are swift. The only way you can beat him is
by being even quicker. Rush forward as soon as the battle starts and unleash
a few combos. Use your Dash ability to dodge his attacks after you lay in some
initial damage. Once you see another opening, move in and continue the
onslaught.

King's Pride is an amazing attack, and works well in this battle, just make 
sure Scar isn't far away. This can be used more than once very quickly if you
use some spare Ethers.

After Scar has lost roughly two and a half life bars, he begins his rush 
attack. Energy surrounds his body, and he circles the battlefield at a mad
sprint, then rushes across it, hitting you if you're in the way. He repeats 
this several times, and the best way to keep yourself from being hurt is by
using the Dash ability to move quickly and dodge his furiously quick run. When
the energy disappears, and he comes to a stop, move in for some more attacks.
You'll probably face this attack several times.

Look out when Scar's body is surrounded in flames or electricity, for he'll
unleash a fury of fire or lightning in the area directly around him. All you
have to do is back off when this happens, then move in for attacks afterwards.

When the battle ends, Donald learns the Fire Boost ability, while Sora, Goofy
and Simba get HP Boosts.

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

You get another Fire Element after this battle, which upgrades your Fire spell
to Fira. After a short goodbye, we find ourselves back in Gummi Space.

Many things to do, so much time, what to choose? You can continue in assisting
Pooh Bear regain his memory in the 100 Acre Wood, as you have more Torn Pages.
Or, you could head over to Olympus Coliseum and participate in the Cerberus
Cup. Like before, these are both detailed in the Sidequests section. To
continue the main story, we'll be revisiting Twilight Town!

Obtainable Items: Seifer's Trophy, Oathkeeper Keyblade

From your Tram Common starting point, head to the Sandlot. After a short, but
grueling battle with Nobodies (which includes the introduction to the new
Beserker Nobodies, that wield huge swords), there's a scene with Saix, a blue-
haired member of Organization XIII, Seifer decides you're worthy of the
Struggle Trophy, which he's aptly renamed SEIFER'S TROPHY.

Olette informs you that Kairi is waiting for you at the station! This huge
news! Reaching the station, however, you're quickly disappointed. Kairi was
abducted by Axel. We get the OATHKEEPER KEYBLADE, and it's already time to
leave Twilight Town. Head straight to Hollow Bastion!

The first thing the gang notices is that more Heartless are in town. Head down
into the main Marketplace and we find that our stores have been upgraded!

 | Dreamcloud       | 600        | near the exit to initiate a short cutscene
 +------------------+------------+ where he tells you about a certain person
he's looking for, the villainous Sephiroth (pronounced Sef-ee-roth, not like
how the people say it in KHII or Final Fantasy VII: Advent Children). Aerith
catches up with him and the two share a short interaction. Head to the
Borrough when you're ready, and fight your way to  +-------------------------+
Merlin's House. After the short scene there        | Item Shop               |
concerning the discovery of Ansem's computer, the  +---------------+---------+
gang is sent to Postern, to talk to Leon con-      | Item          | Price   |
cerning Ansem's computer. Save your game, then     +---------------+---------+
head out. Go to the Bailey, where you encounter    | Potion        | 40      |
Yuna, Rikku and Paine...the Gull Wings! They want  | Ether         | 150     |
information on Leon, and seem to be working with   | Tent          | 100     |
the enemy. But there's something lovable about     +---------------+---------+
them, still...

Fight your way through the new alleyways as you head towards the Postern. If 
you take the high road in one alley, you'll acquire an AP BOOST and the MOON
RECIPE, so make sure to pick those up.

Once you reach the Postern, you meet up with Aerith. Search the area and open 
the chests in the area for MYTHRIL GEM, AP BOOST, and the CASTLE PERIMETER MAP.
Save if you wish, then take the path down and enter the Corridors. Navigate 
through the maze-like collection of corridors, defeating Heartless as you go. 
Chests are placed at several parts of it, which contain: HI-POTION, MYTHRIL 
STONE, MYTHRIL CRYSTAL, and AP BOOST. Take the only door-way heading onward, 
and you find yourself in a circular room, with a new guest...Tifa. Tifa is
searching for someone, and decides to search the room. Lucky, too...for she 
finds a doorway! Take a moment when you have the chance to open the chest in
Ansem's Study for a SKILL RECIPE, then move onwards. Notice Stitch in the back-
ground during the cutscenes?

After messing with the computer, something very unexpected happens...Sora,
Donald, and Goofy are transported INTO the computer! It's time for...

Recommended Level: 28

Obtainable Items: Mythril Crystal, Mythril Gem, Mythril Stone, Drive Recovery,
                  Mega-Potion, AP Boost, Tent, Gaia Belt, Ukelele Charm,
                  Pit Cell Map, I/O Tower Map, Photon Debugger Keyblade

Well, well, well. We wind up in the computer world, where the program Tron 
exists. And speaking of Tron, he happens to be in the same cell you're locked
in. Not only that, but the characters looks have been changed yet again, to fit
in with the digital landscape. He seems like a friendly fellow, but let's first
and foremost escape. Slash at the doorway with your Keyblade, and when you've
collected enough orbs, use the "Freeze" Reaction Command to break the doorway.
After the cutscene that follows, take a moment to open the two chests in the 
room to get the PIT CELL MAP and MYTHRIL CRYSTAL, drop off your Synth items at
the Moogle, save your game, then continue onward!

In the next area, the Canyon, explore it for a few moments, taking out the
resident Heartless and opening the chests to acquire DRIVE RECOVERY, MYTHRIL
GEM, MYTHRIL STONE, and MEGA-POTION. Then, head into the main chamber and 
examine the large terminal.

Many, many boxes appear around you, in a circle. Almost all are blue, but one,
and just one, is red. Move quickly and find the red one. When the boxes begin
to spin, keep your eye on where you know the red one is, for as they continue
to spin, the red color disappears from the box. When they stop, go to where
you know the red one is, and attack the group it's in. If you've done it right,
this short part will be over. However, to go onwards, Tron requests you go back
to the "user world" and find the password, so they can access the Dataspace.

Back in Hollow Bastion, head to Ansem's Study. A long cutscene ensues, with
Mickey making his return. After all is said and done, you receive the Master
Form for your Drive Forms. Make your way back to the computer room, opening the
chest on the way to get the UKELELE CHARM (which allows you to summon Stitch
into battle), and go back into Tron's world.

Unfortunately, things have gotten worse. Tron has been captured, and we're
forced to participate in "games" at the MCP's will. Luckily, it's a fun game of
Lightcycle.

In Lightcycle, you're constantly moving. Use the Left Analog Stick to move left
and right, use L1/L2 to turn left and R1/R2 to turn right. Only three face
buttons are used, and they operate in a manner where each one has a strength
or weakness to another. The X Button attacks with your Keyblade, and using this
attack stops an enemy from using a Charge. The Square Button charges, which
destroys an enemy Guard, which appears as a shield around them. And the O
Button guards, which blocks an enemies' attack.

Make your way around the track, dodging the transparent pillars that appear in
the road and taking out the Heartless that try to stop you. You eventually make
it through the crack in the wall that was blown there just moments ago. Yay!
We're reunited with Tron! Battle Heartless as you make your towards the Data-
space. When you reach there, examine the main terminal, and we're put into a
little test.

You have two minutes to freeze the three monitors in the room. If you do not,
you will be de-resolutioned. To freeze a monitor, you must defeat the Heartless
in the area and collect the orbs to fill up your Clusters Gauge in the top-
left corner. When it's full, go to one of the three monitors in the room and
use the "Freeze!" Reaction Command. You must successfully do this twice more to
end the threat. After this event, Donald gets the Thunder Boost ability, while
Sora, Goofy, and Tron get HP Boosts. Exit the Dataspace room and go directly
across, to what appears to be a lift.

At the I/O Tower: Hallway, you'll encounter a group of Heartless (which you'll
kill of course) and two chests. Open them for TENT and AP BOOST. Take the exit
to the right (not the left, the left exit leads to a dock where a ship that's
not there at the moment leaves). In this new room, the Communications Room,
open the chests for the GAIA BELT and I/O TOWER MAP, then save your game. When
you're ready, head back to the I/O Tower: Hallway to find that the MCP has sent
a new enemy after you...

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Hostile Program                 | 640 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Shoots homing bomb clusters at Sora and co.      |
 | 2. Sends out a blast of white before retreating.    |
 | 3. Uses a large gun to shoot you for multiple hits. |
 | 4. Shoots out large laser beams across the field.   |
 | 5. Quickly jumps off the wall and attacks.          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Make sure to collect the Cluster Orbs that he drops |
 | as you attack him, for when you collect enough, you |
 | can use the Reaction Command "Freeze!" to tempo-    |
 | rarily stun the Program and allow you to get some   |
 | free attacks.                                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

The Hostile Program is very intimidating at first glance, but he's a cinch to
defeat. Start off by using your regular combos on him, then move on to more
advanced attacks, such as Tron's Limit "Tron's Pride," or Sora's Trinity Limit.
If you have Goofy in your party, Knocksmash also works incredibly well.

After you beat on this ugly thing for while, you'll probably have collected 
quite a few Cluster Orbs. Probably even filled your whole Cluster Gauge! If 
this is true, take a few steps back from the Hostile Program and use the
"Freeze!" Reaction Command, then you're free to move in and score some extra
hits.

The only problem in this battle is dodging the damn things laser attacks, which
come in several patterns. It's best to have High Jump Lvl 1 (or, if you've been
using Valor Form since you got Master, you could even have gotten it to Level
5, meaning you'd have High Jump Lvl 2!), for better mobility, and Quick Run
(which you get from Wisdom Form) is helpful as well. Just watch his patterns
and learn how to dodge the lasers.

When you win this battle, Sora's Drive Gauge gets powered up to 5, and he 
learns the ability Horizontal Slash. Goofy learns the Jackpot ability, and
Donald and Tron get HP Boosts.

Sora gets the PHOTON DEBUGGER KEYBLADE before being sent on his way. Seems the
Space Paranoids world is safe for the time being...

Use the computer to mess with it some, and bring up a picture of an old guy,
who King Mickey identifies as...!

King Mickey begins one HELL of an explanation that's just getting to the good
part when...HOLLOW BASTION! IT'S UNDER ATTACK! Heartless and Nobodies are
everywhere, and even fighting each other. That is, until they both decide that
you're a much better target. Defeat all the Heartless and Nobodies in the room,
then the gang will make their way to the Postern, where yet another enemy halts
their progress. Lucky for you, you don't have to fight him yet. Sephiroth's
just interested in Cloud.

Make your way through to the Restoration Area, defeating all of the Nobodies.
You meet up with King Mickey at the Bailey, who actually expects you to leave
this fight, and go on your own journey. Yeah, right, we've got to help our 
friends. Speaking of our friends, if you're a Final Fantasy fan, feel free to
geek out at the awesome sites of these people fighting Heartless together,
most particularly the scene with Cloud and Leon...

Your progress is halted as you move forward, by your old Organization XIII pal
Demyx. This time, Demyx is here for a real fight, and though he's not much of
a fighter, you better be prepared!

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Demyx (Second)                  | 1005              |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Creates water forms to fight you.                |
 | 2. Creates different patterns of water pillars that |
 |    hurt you.                                        |
 | 3. Creates a giant water wall and pushes it towards |
 |    you.                                             |
 | 4. Shoots exploding balls of water at you.          |
 | 5. Speeds towards Sora and attacks with Sitar       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | When you're on the clock while fighting the water   |
 | forms, use the Reaction Command Wild Dance to       |
 | eliminate them quickly. If you don't beat the clock |
 | then it's game over!                                |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 
To start off the battle, you have to defeat water forms again, and this time,
it's 50 in 40 seconds. Use Wild Dance to to help you along quickly, and be
ready, for once they're all gone, it's time to attack Demyx straight on!

Combos work well, but constantly stay aware, and dodge as many of his attacks
as you can, because they are quite damaging. Especially look out if he says 
"Dance, water, dance!" When he does, more water forms are created, and the time
limit is much more strict -- 10 forms must be defeated in 10 seconds. Wild
Dance is a necessity here, so use it, use it, use it!

Trinity works well, but Knocksmash works much better than anything. Use the
Reaction Command Show Stealer if Demyx rushes towards you for an attack, as it
not only damages him, but it knocks him backwards and leaves him vulnerable for
more attacks.

Due to Demyx's high HP, and the frequency of his attacks, this will probably be
a long battle. Be sure to have Ethers available to use in your Item menu, as
they help you use Knocksmash and Trinity more often. Valor Form also works if
you're low on MP and can't use Limits. Just keep on the attack, and stay on 
your toes and this battle will end with you as the victor. And for winning,
you get a new Blizzard Element, which allows you to use the Blizzara Spell!

=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=-=

GOOFY! Mickey and Donald are pissed, and I was pretty upset too. Let's get
revenge for our friend, and take out the things reponsible for this! Battle 
your way down the mountain, defeating the many Heartless with the help of our
Hollow Bastion friends, Yuffie, Leon, Tifa, and Cloud! When you reach the end,
the Crystal Fissure, a cutscene plays and you get the Cure Element, which
allows you to use the Cura Spell!

Open the chests at the Fissure for AP BOOST, ELIXIR, TORN PAGES, and THE GREAT
MAW MAP. Save your game (really, I mean it), then continue onward. After a 
cutscene with the Organization XIII leader and Mickey's revelation about his
identity, it's time for one of the biggest challenges yet...

THE BATTLE WITH 1,000 HEARTLESS.

A counter appears at the top-left corner of the screen, which counts how many
you've killed. Rush into battle and start hacking away. There's really no
strategy here, just kill as many as you can. You MUST make use of the Reaction
Commands in this, Rising Sun and Snag/Sparkle Ray. Rising Sun allows you to
swoop through the air five times, eliminating Heartless as you go. Snag grabs
one of the Surveilance Robots floating about and Sparkle Ray uses the Robot
to shoot a laser beam in a full circle, killing many. Without these Reaction
Commands, the battle takes much longer, and is much more of a threat. If you
plan on using plain combos every once in a while, make sure you have the 
Explosion ability equipped, as well. For winning, Sora gets the Guard Break
ability, and the gang moves forward.

King Mickey is doing battle with the Organization leader! A shocking series of
events take place, that I absolutely cannot spoil, and the gang ends up back
in the Gummi Ship, recalling what happened. You get the ICE CREAM and the 
PICTURE, then it's time to revisit the worlds you've been to, and put an end to
this all.

Synthesis in Kingdom Hearts II is the process of making new items using items
in your inventory. It's come back over from Kingdom Hearts I, though luckily is
a bit more simple this time. To Synthesize, first you have to get Synthesis
materials from an enemy, or from treasure chests. You also have to pick up
various recipes spread across the worlds. Only once you've accomplished this
can you go to a Moogle (little floating white things, they appear near save 
points a lot) and effectively create an item. Let's start off with some of the
basics:

Now, I know you're saying "But Lestat, those percentages are so low!" Indeed,
they are, friend. However, you can help yourself guarantee more items after 
battle. Equip Donald with Meteor Staff (from Port Royal) and Goofy with the 
Genji Shield (Titan Cup). Then equip Sora with the Sweet Memories Keyblade,
acquired from the 100 Acre Wood. Finally, equip someone (I'd say Sora) with the
Lucky Ring (from the Pain and Panic Cup). These weapons and this accessory
all have the "Lucky Lucky" ability. This means they increase the chances of an
item being dropped. You can also go through your character and equip the
ability on the Ability Menu there, to stack it up. You should have no problem
getting items now.

Now, you've gone material hunting? Time to go onward!

One of the best new things for Kingdom Hearts II! Drive Forms first become
available when you gain your new clothes for Sora, at Yen Sid's Tower. At
first, only one Form (well, two, technically) is available, but as you go
through the game, you gain three more.

Drive Forms allow you to the absorb the powers of your AI partners, Donald and
Goofy. To use a Drive Form, you have to build up your Drive Gauge. Building up
this Gauge requires you to unleash successive attacks on enemies, or collect 
Drive Orbs that certain enemies drop. Each Form requires a certain number of
Drive Gauges filled:

 +--------+-------+
 | Form   | Gauge |
 +--------+-------+
 | Valor  | Three |
 | Wisdom | Three |
 | Master | Four  |
 | Final  | Five  |
 +--------+-------+

You won't be able to use a Form unless you have the required amount of Gauges
filled.

Forms level up, though special circumstances determine how each ones level. As
they level up, the Forms themselves gain more Support Abilities for you when
you use the Form, and they even offer bonuses for Sora to use outside of the
Form. These abilities will be detailed in each Form's sub-section. Forms only
can level up to Level 7.

When you first receive Valor Form, you can only level it up to 3. When Wisdom
Form is achieved, you can level both Forms up to level 4. Upon acquiring 
Master Form, all Forms can be levelled to 5. And when you get the Final Form,
all Forms can be levelled up to level 7, and reach their full strength.

Valor Form is your initial Form, though it's Japanese name (Brave) is 
considerably more suitable. The Valor Form changes Sora's clothes to mostly
red, and allows him to wield two Keyblades (initially, the second one is Star
Seeker, though you can change it as you gain more Keyblades). This form has 
Sora combining strength with Goofy, so he always has to be in your Party when
you go to activate this. Using this combined strength, Sora can wail away at
enemies for lots of damage. Because he's combined with Goofy, Sora can't use
any Magic while in Valor Form.

The Valor Form gains one experience point for every strike that hits an enemy.
Your best bet for quick levelling is to go to areas with lots of weak enemies.

+--------+-------+------------------+
| Exp.   | Level | Ability          |

| 1750   | 6     | Combo Boost      |
| 2500   | 7     | High Jump Lvl. 3 |
+--------+-------+------------------+

High Jump, when equipped, allows Sora to jump higher (by Level 3, much higher)
than normal. Combo Boost makes your combo longer by one hit, and seeing as you
can equip both of them, that's two whole combo hits. Auto Valor makes Valor 
Form a Reaction Command if you're in a critical situation (30% health or 
below).

Wisdom Form combines Sora with Donald and unleashes magical power galore! Like
Valor made them red, Sora's clothes are changed to a nice shade of blue with 
Wisdom Form. Wisdom Form is gained after completing the Timeless River. While
Sora, unfortunately, does not gain two Keyblades with this form, he gains 
immense speed, as he floats above the ground at all times. Also, instead of
swinging the Keyblade to attack, Sora fires beams of magic from the end of it
at enemies. Magic strength is boosted, as well.

The Wisdom Form gains experience for every Heartless you kill. Quite hard to
level up early on, but the streets on The World that Never Was are a great and
easy place to level this form up.

+--------+-------+------------------+
| Exp.   | Level | Ability          |

| 500    | 7     | Quick Run Lvl. 3 |
+--------+-------+------------------+

When equipped, Quick Run allows Sora to dash forward by pressing Square. The
higher the level, the longer the dash. MP Rage restores your MP whenever you 
take damage. MP Haste makes the MP Gauge refill faster. Auto Wisdom makes 
Wisdom Form a Reaction Command when in a critical situation (HP below 30%).

An elite form, which combines the powers of Wisdom and Valor. For this form,
Sora combines with both Donald and Goofy. His clothes turn yellow, and two 
Keyblades materilize with him. One he holds in his hand, but the other floats
in the air, controlled by Sora telepathically, and this adds to it's reach 
during attacks. Both Strength and Magic are increased.

The Master Form levels up in an odd manner. You know those orange-y Drive Orbs
some enemies and items drop? Well, the Master Form gets 1 experience point for
every small orb you gather (3 per large orb). Because of this, you should focus
on areas with enemies that are more likely to drop Drive Orbs, or destroy items
that drop them. Jackpot increases the Drive Orbs drop-rate.

+--------+-------+---------------------+
| Exp.   | Level | Ability             |
+--------+-------+---------------------+
| 0      | 1     | N/A                 |

| 1050   | 6     | Air Combo Boost     |
| 1500   | 7     | Aerial Dodge Lvl. 3 |
+--------+-------+---------------------+

Aerial Dodge means you jump using Circle, then press Circle again to do a mid-
air spin. It's sort of like a double jump, and with each level up to the
ability, the second jump goes higher and farther. Air Combo Boost increases the
amount of hits in your combos while in the air by one (so by level 7 Master 
Form, it's two extra hits). Auto Master sets Master Form as a Reaction Command
under critical circumstances.

The true power of the Keyblade. Sora uses two Keyblades, both of which hover
and are controlled telepathically. Sora himself also hovers above the ground,
and hence gains great speed. His clothes turn all white, and he can even glide
after a jump. The Final Form has Sora combine with Donald and Goofy to achieve
full power, and his attributes are increased dramatically.

The Final Form levels up by defeating Nobodies. For every Nobody you destroy,
you gain another experience point for the Form. Hence, it is best to level up
in areas overrun with Nobodies.

+--------+-------+--------------+
| Exp.   | Level | Ability      |

| 350    | 6     | Form Boost   |
| 500    | 7     | Glide Lvl. 3 |
+--------+-------+--------------+

Glide allows you to soar through the air, after pressing Circle to jump, hold
Square to glide, and use the Left Analog Stick to steer. Each Glide level 
allows you to glide faster. Form Boost increases the amount of time you get to
stay in each Form. Auto Final sets Final Form to Reaction Command in critical
situations.

| As you've probably noticed, sometimes if you turn into a Form,    |
| you instead turn into a black creature with yellow eyes, similar  |
| to a Heartless. In this Form, Sora is powerful, and capable of    |
| pulling off many combos, and fierce attacks. However, attacks do  |
| more damage on him, and he can't pick up Health Orbs, or use      |
| Items or Magic.                                                   |
|                                                                   |
| How do you know if you're going to turn into Anti-Form? Each time |
| you turn into a Form, you earn an Anti-Point. When you reach 10   |
| Anti-Points or have more, you have a 50-50% chance of turning     |
| into the Anti-Form. Before that, the chance varies. Gaining a new |
| Form (Wisdom, Master, and Final) automatically resets your Anti-  |
| Point counter to 0. Driving into Final Form takes off 10 Anti-    |
| Points from your counter. Actually turning into Anti-Form takes   |
| away 4 Anti-Points.                                               |

Sora-
-----
A boy chosen by the Keyblade, a mysterious weapon.

Not long ago, Sora journeyed with Donald and Goofy
in search of his longtime friend Kairi, who had been
spirited away into the darkness.

In the end, they saved the world of all worlds from the
darkness that was closing in.

After that, Sora continued journeying in search of Riku,
his best friend who was trapped on the other side of the
door to darkness. And somewhere along the way, Sora fell
into a deep slumber.

With a new outfit and strengthened resolve, Sora has set
out once more on a search for his friend Riku.


Donald-
-------
The Royal Court Magician.

Not long ago, Donald left Disney Castle with Goofy
in search of King Mickey. During that quest, they
met Sora and became fast friends.

After they helped Sora save the worlds from darkness,
Donald and Goofy continued their search for King Mickey,
who had decided to stay behind in the realm of dark-
ness.

But before they could find the King, the three friends
were plunged into a deep sleep.

First Appeared: The Wise Little Hen - 1934

Goofy-
------
Captain of the Royal Knights.

Not long ago, Goofy left Disney Castle with Donald
in search of King Mickey. Along the way, they joined
Sora, obeying the King's commands to "follow the Key-
bearer."

After helping save the worlds from darkness, Goofy
continued his quest to find the King. But like
Donald and Sora, he fell into a deep slumber before
he could finish his quest. Wonder what Goofy was
doing just before he fell asleep?

First Appeared: Two Weeks Vacation - 1952


Riku-
-----
Sora's longtime friend. He had clad himself in
darkness in order to wield it, and had even changed
his appearance.

But when the real Ansem's Kingdom Hearts Encoder
exploded, Riku returned to his own form.

You could say it was a miracle -- worked by a heart
no darkness could eclipse.


Kairi-
------
Longtime friend of Riku and Sora, and one of the
Seven Princesses with ties to the Keys and Key-
holes.

She had lost her memories of Sora, and after they
returned, she wanted to see him more and more with
every passing day.

Falling through an unexplored hole in the darkness,
she arrived in Twilight Town and befriended Hayner,
Pence and Olette before being captured by Axel.

Kairi is fervently hoping to meet up with Sora once
more.


King Mickey-
------------
The King of Disney Castle. He was the first to
realize what a threat the darkness was, and the
first to act. King Mickey travels across the worlds,
battling the Heartless and searching for an answer
to the riddle of Organization XIII and the Nobodies.

After many great battles, the King seems even more
determined than ever to fight against the darkness.

First Appeared: Steamboat Willie - 1928


Ansem the Wise-
---------------
The man who called himself "DiZ" and dresse his
face in bandages to conceal it, now revealed to
be none other than Ansem the Wise.

The true Ansem once studied the hearts and the
Heartless, but soon ceased his research for fear
of disturbing the order of worlds. But his
apprentice Xehanort betrayed him, robbing Ansem
of his discoveries and his pride.

Since that time, Ansem was driven by vengeance --
but when he saw Riku go so far as to give up his
physical form to help his friend Sora, he had a
change of heart.


Xehanort-
---------
The former apprentice of Ansem the Wise.


Maleficent-
-----------

Jack Skelington-
----------------
He loves to scare people silly -- but when Jack
discovered Christmas, he was captivated. He even
thought he could improve  it by adding his own
special brand of fright.

Jack wanted to deliver presents to the children
of the world for Santa. Santa helped him realize
that his talents were really meant for Halloween.
But Jack still has the Santa suit Sally made for
him!

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Sally-
------
One of Dr. Finklestein's creations, Sally's patched
together with parts that sometimes fall off and move
around on their own. She's gotten very good at 
mending herself with a needle and thread.

Sally usually helps Dr. Finklestein around the lab,
but she'd much rather spend time with Jack.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Dr. Finkelstein-
----------------
The mad scientist of Halloween Town. Sally is one of
his creations.

The first time Sora and his friends met the doctor,
he was trying to create a heart. He failed, but he
hasn't lost his appetite for strange invention.

The doctor's head is made of steel plates that open
up for maintenance.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Zero-
-----
Jack's ghost dog. He comes out of his grave whenever
Jack calls, and never gets tired of playing fetch
with his master.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


The Mayor-
----------
The two-faced mayor of Halloween Town. His face
switches from a happy version to a sad one depending
on his mood, which seems to change pretty often.

The Mayor relies on Jack to make preperations for
Halloween. In fact, the Mayor can't decide a thing
without Jack's help.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Lock-
-----
A member of the prankster trio that includes Shock
and Barrel. Their walking bathtub helps them get
around while they commit all kinds of mischief.

They sometimes help Oogie, but they're not really
loyal to him.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Shock-
------
Another member of the trio of troublemakers. Shock
is the most cunning of the three, and comes up
with a lot of their ideas for mischief. Last time
Oogie was defeated, she started behaving better --
well, just a little bit better.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Barrel-
-------
A member of the trio that includes Lock and Shock.
He's often the object of his partners' pranks and
practical jokes.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Bathtub-
--------
The walking bathtub Lock, Shock and Barrel use to
get around. It's also big enough to carry any
mischief-making tools they need to bring along.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Reindeer-
---------
A special set of Halloween-style reindeer, custom-
made by Dr. Finkelstein for Jack. They're just right
for pulling Jack's coffin sleigh through the Christmas
Eve sky.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


Santa Claus-
------------
Known to some as Father Christmas, Santa Claus makes
children's dreams come true every year on December
25th, delivering presents in a sleigh drawn by
flying reindeer. To get ready for Christmas, he
depends on his list of this year's good little
girls and boys.

It seems our friend Jack Skellington is a bit
confused. He thinks Santa's name is actually Sandy
Claws.


Oogie Boogie-
-------------
An evil bag of bugs who loves gambling with dice
and dreams of causing trouble for Jack in Halloween
Town. Sora and his friends defeated Oogie once before,
but Maleficent brought him back as part of her evil
plan.

First Appeared: The Nightmare Before Christmas - 1993


The Experiment-
---------------
Dr. Finkelstein's puppet creation.

Unlike Sally, it didn't have a heart -- so it went
to find one in the love that's bundled with all
presents.

Aladdin-
--------
A young man from the desert city of Agrabah. Not long
ago, Sora and his friends helped Aladdin defeat
Jafar and free Genie from the lamp.

Aladdin used to worry that someone known as a "street
rat" couldn't really earn the love of a princess. But
Jasmine taught Aladdin that it's what's inside a
person's heart that really counts.

Aladdin's friend Abu, the monkey, is never far from
his side.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Genie-
------
Genie spent ten thousand years stuck inside a magic
lamp until Aladdin found him. After Genie helped 
Aladdin defeat Jafar, Aladdin used his third and
final wish to set Genie free.

For Genie, it's a dream come true. Instead of
being at every master's beck and call, he's enjoying
a carefree life.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Princess Jasmine-
-----------------
The princess of Agrabah, and one of the Seven
Princesses needed to open the door to the realm of
darkness.

Jasmine met Aladdin after she fled to the palace to
try and lead her own life. She's very grateful to
Aladdin, Sora, and his friends for saving her city
from Jafar.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Abu-
----
Aladdin's faithful and rather furry sidekick. Abu
doesn't talk a lot, but he always understands what
Aladdin needs.

Unfortunately, Abu won't resist treasure, even if
it belongs to somebody else.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Magic Carpet-
-------------
A magical flying carpet.

Carpet is an old friend of Genie's. Ever since Aladdin
found him in the Cave of Wonders, Carpet will do
anything to help him. Carpet can carry Aladdin across
the vastness of the desert in the blink of an eye.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Iago-
-----
Jafar's boisterous and cunning parrot. He's Jafar's
eyes and ears for everything going on in Agrabah.

Iago's mischief finally landed him inside the lamp,
imprisoned with Jafar. Now that he's finally free
again, he swears he's turned over a new feather. But
I wonder....

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Jafar-
------
Before he became an evil genie, Jafar was the Sultan's
royal vizier. The last time we were in Agrabah, Jafar
was trying to use the Heartless to take over the city.
He even got control of Aladdin's pal Genie and wished
to become a powerful genie himself. Aladdin, Sora, and
his friends joined together to defeat Jafar, and
imprisoned him in his own lamp.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


Jafar (Genie)-
--------------
When he was master of the lamp, Jafar used his last
wish to become an all-powerful genie. He was imprisoned
in the lamp, but eventually made his escape, thanks to
the Peddler.

Jafar then used his magical power to grow to a colossal
size. He tried to take over Agrabah, but Sora and his
friends defeated him once more.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992


The Peddler-
------------
He runs a shop offering all kinds of merchandise.
There's definitely something suspicious about this
fellow, though.

First Appeared: Aladdin - 1992

Simba-
------
Son of the great Mufasa who grew up to succeed his
father and rule the Pride Lands.

As a young cub, Simba mistakenly thought he was
responsible for his father's death. He left the
Pride Lands and met two new friends: Timon, and
Pumbaa. They taught him to lead a carefree life.

During their first quest, Simba helped Sora, Donald,
and Goofy whenever they called on him.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Timon-
------
A meerkat and one of Simba's closest pals. He found
Simba, almost dead of thirst, when he was just a cub.
Timon and his beat buddy Pumbaa taught Simba their
motto, Hakuna Matata, which means "no worries."

And that's how Simba grew up -- with no worries, 
taking life one day at a time.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Pumbaa-
-------
A warthog and one of Simba's closest pals. He found
Simba, almost dead of thirst, when he was just a cub.
Pumbaa and his best buddy Timon taught Simba their
motto, Hakuna Matata, which means "no worries."

Some folks are a bit put off by Pumbaa's pungency,
but a kinder fellow you'll never find.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Nala-
-----
Simba's childhood friend Nala has grown up to be a
strong lioness. She's searching for help to save
the Pride Lands, which have fallen into a terrible
state.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Scar-
-----
Simba's evil uncle and brother of Mufasa.

After Mufasa's death and Simba's disappearance, Scar
became king of the Pride Lands and used the hyenas to
do his dirty work. Scar hasn't taken care of the Pride
Lands, and almost all the animals have been forced to
leave.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


The Ghost of Scar-
------------------
This phanton appeared in the Pride Lands after Scar's
death. It seems to have been created from the evil in
Scar's heart and it preys on the weakness in Simba.

The ghost may be a sign of more evil to come. Simba
still can't seem to believe in himself, and the other
lions are getting more and more worried.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Mufasa-
-------
A great king of the Pride Lands who was loved by all
the animals who lived there. He passed on the wisdom
of generations of kings to his son Simba.

Mufasa tried to climb to safety after saving young
Simba from a stampede, but Scar sent him falling
to his death.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Rafiki-
-------
A mandrill that lives in the Pride Lands, Rafiki
is a wise old shaman.

Rafiki was a trusted advisor to Mufasa, and has
always looked forward to the day Simba would 
take his father's place as king.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Shenzi-
-------
A cowardly hyena who hates lions. Shenzi takes
the lead when she and her friends are up to
mischief. She's always quick to follow the strongest
leader.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Banzai-
-------
A cowardly hyena who hates lions. Banzai likes to
complain but doesn't like to work. He's always
looking for an easy meal.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Ed-
---
A witless hyena who's not very smart, but loves
to laugh. He takes a lot of ribbing from his pals
Shenzi and Banzai, but he doesn't seem to care.

First Appeared: The Lion King - 1994


Pete-
-----
Pete's using the Heartless to get control over
all the worlds.

He's helping Scar's phantom, too. Seems like
Pete's trying to cover all his bases.

First Appeared: Steamboat Willie - 1928

Tron-
-----
A security program improved and upgraded by Ansem
the Wise. He's the fellow who also reprogrammed
the MCP. Tron is dedicated to making sure the
system functions perfectly, but the MCP wants to
take control away from the users.

Only Ansem knows why these two programs behave so
differently.

First Appeared: Tron - 1982


Commander Sark-
---------------
A powerful program who doesn't serve any user --
just the MCP. Commander Sark is pretty harsh to
any program that tries to resist his master's
power.

First Appeared: Tron - 1982


MCP-
----
The Master Control Program. He rules the system
as the chief control program.

Instead of working for the users, the MCP is
planning to take over the system for himself.
By refusing to follow the users' orders and
trying to enact his evil plan, he's causing
chaos among the other programs.

First Appeared: Tron - 1982


Hostile Program-
----------------
An executable called from the DTD dataspace to
destroy the town.

Xemnas-
-------
Organization XIII's Number I, who acts as leader
of the group.


Xigbar-
-------
Organization XIII's Number II.

He told Sora once that he reminded him of someone else.
Puzzling words, indeed...

Some part of him did seem to be enjoying Sora's
reaction.


Xaldin-
-------
Organization XIII's Number III. He sought the
Beast's Heartless and Nobody in order to acquire
Kingdom Hearts.

He was a master of wind who wielded six lances --
but he met his end at the hands of Sora.


Vexen-
------
Organization XIII's Number IV. He has been eliminated.

Vexen, Lexaeus, and Zexion were among the Organization
XIII's founding members, and there was no love lost
between them and neophytes like Marluxia. Vexen opposed
Marluxia's plans to take over the Organization, and was
consequently destroyed by Axel.


Lexaeus
-------
Formerly Organization XIII's Number V. He once brandished
a giant tomahawk, but now he has been eliminated.

Lexaeus rejected Marluxia's bid to dominante the
Organization, and formulated his own plans -- but the
plans failed and he met his end.


Zexion-
-------
Formerly Organization XIII's Number VI. He has been
eliminated.

Zexion disliked dirtying his own hands, and relied
on his wits to dispose of any rivals -- but it was
one of his own schemes that wound up destroying
him.


Saix-
-----
Organization XIII's Number VII.

He was in pursuit of the renegade Axel, but for
some reason seemed more concerned about Sora's well-
being.

Saix has no heart, but knows all too well how to
injure one. No doubt his pose belies a more savage
nature. He also insinuated he knew something about
Riku.


Axel-
-----
Organization XIII's Number VIII. He commands fire
and carries a uniquely-shaped weapon.

He has proven to be an odd duck of sorts within the
Organization, lashing out against treachery, yet
stirring trouble within his own betrayals all the
while.


Demyx-
------
Organization XIII's Number IX. He used a type of
instrument called a "sitar" to control water...
but he wasn't very good at fighting.

Demyx was under orders to "liberate Sora's true
disposition" while surveying the world of Olympus.


Luxord-
-------
Organization XIII's Number X, a gambler who can
manipulate time.

Having shaken Sora and his companions with wily words,
Luxord entertained himself by drawing them into a
game-like battle.

In Port Royal, Luxord used Heartless and the cursed
medallions to conduct experiments on the Organization's
behalf and collect hearts.


Marluxia-
---------
Formerly Organization XIII's Number XI. He has been
eliminated.

He plotted an Organization rebellion and tried to
seize power of the Keyblade, but Axel's betrayal
led to his destruction.


Larxene-
--------
Formerly Organization XIII's Number XII. She has been
eliminated.

Larxene conspired with Marluxia to turn on the
Organization.

Larxene was unfeeling and loved nothing more than to
bring other people down, but she met her demise when
that malice came full circle.


Roxas-
------
Organization XIII's Number XIII, a Keyblade wielder
and denizen of darkness.

He vanished with a satisfied look after battling
Sora -- but Sora was the only one who could see him
in the first place.

Selphie-
--------
A girl who lived on the same islands as Sora. She
always played with Sora and the other boys.

Selphie's whereabouts were in question after 
Destiny Islands vanished some time ago, but thanks
to Sora's help, she was able to return home.

First Appeared: Final Fantasy VIII


Jiminy Cricket-
---------------
Glad you could join us! Cricket's the name --
Jiminy Cricket. Queen Minnie asked me to come
along on this quest as the Royal Chronicler. And
what an adventure it's been!

You might remember that I also help my pal Pinocchio
out as his official conscience. I try to keep the
little fellow on the straight and narrow and show him
right from wrong. He sure can be a handful sometimes.

First Appeared: Pinocchio - 1940


Moogles-
--------
A strange race that pops up in even stranger places
to open shop.

Moogles hate having their pompoms ruffled (don't we
all?), but pompom rufflers just keep coming in droves.
Maybe that's why the moogles use holograms to run their
shops now, while they kick back at home.

First Appeared: Final Fantasy III


Chicken Little-
---------------
Chicken Little has more pluck and heart than most
boys twice his size. He never turns away from a
challenge, no matter how big it is.

He's a loyal pal of Sora's, and is always quick to
answer a call for help.

First Appeared: Chicken Little - 2005


Stitch-
-------
A strange visitor from a distant planet.

Stitch is very strong for his small size and is
prone to mischief.

He's always ready to help his friend Sora whenever
Sora needs him.

First Appeared: Lilo and Stitch - 2002


Peter Pan-
----------
The boy who can fly. He's from Never Land, where
children never grow up.

Not long ago, Peter helped Sora and the others
defeat the Heartless.

During this new adventure, Pete and his friend
Tinker Bell help Sora out once again.

First Appeared: Peter Pan - 1953


Pluto-
------
The King's faithful dog. But Pluto's more than a
pet. He and King Mickey are bound together by the
strongest ties there are: friendship and loyalty.
When the King disappeared, Pluto set out with the
others to find his master.

I hope that famous nose of his will lead him to the
King.

First Appeared: The Chain Gang - 1930

The follow section is to cover the many enemies you encounter throughout the
game. You will find the locations of each enemy, it's Hit Points, it's 
Strength (STR), it's Defense (DEF), it's experience points given (EXP), and
the level of the world they appear in (LEV). The LEV is the recommended 
level given at the start of each world in the walkthrough. In the game, you
can see this level before landing on the world. However, when it comes to
Cup tournaments, the LEV represents the level you must be in order to access
the tournaments.

is helpful for players who are simply having trouble with a boss, and don't
need additional walkthrough notes, or those who wish not to be spoiled.

+---------------------------------+-------------------+
| Twilight Thorn                  | N/A               |
+---------------------------------+-------------------+
| 1. Grabs Roxas and begins a chain of attacks. Meant | 
|    to be countered with Reaction.                   |
| 2. Electric waves emitted from head, use Reaction   |
|    to dodge.                                        |
| 3. Cartwheels across arena. Jump over his moving    | 
|    arms.                                            |
| 4. Backflips in air, then lands head first on plat- |
|    form, arms spread. Swims across arena. Move to   |
|    side of arena to dodge.                          |
| 5. This follows 4. After swimming across, he lands  |
|    on his head and begins to emit electric waves    |
|    from his head while he's upside down.            |
| 6. Summons smaller Nobodies (Creepers) to attack.   |
+-----------------------------------------------------+
| Seeing as this is Roxas' "Dive to the Heart," it's  |
| obvious this boss is meant to be the Nobody         |
| equivelant of Darkside, from Kingdom Hearts I.      |
+-----------------------------------------------------+

This is one big Nobody, but luckily, he's a cinch to beat. As you start off the
battle, white will fill the screen and Roxas will find himself suspended in the
air. Twilight Thorn shows up, and begins his attacks. You'll notice a Triangle
appear on screen at several different times. What does this mean? Press
Triangle, of course! It's covered in the Battle Basics! The Reaction commands 
lead to a series of events and Roxas is thrown onto the platform, and Thorn
slithers off. However, he's not done yet. He turns the world upside down, and
tries to draw Roxas into his big, swirling vortex. Use Reaction when you can,
and you will counter this attack, leaving Thorn stunned on his head on the 
platform. Take this oppurtunity to attack with a few combos.

Now the battle really begins! Twilight Thorns emits what seems to be electrical
waves from his head. Use Reaction to dodge these waves. Using the Reaction 
command repeatedly allows you to ride these waves up to his head, and get a
nice combo in.

Around this point, the boss will probably use move 3 (as detailed above). Dodge
it as necessary, and ride the waves back up to his head to get in as many hits
as possible.

Eventually, the boss will do move 4, which leads right into move 5. Dodge 4 by
jumping to the side of the arena. Then, when he flips onto his head on the
other side, target his head and rush in (using Reaction to dodge as necessary).
Get as many hits on the head as you can, but focus primarily on using Reaction
to keep yourself out of harm's way. If your HP falls low, kill one of the
smaller Nobodies (Creepers) for HP orbs, or use a Potion. I recommend killing
the Creepers, as they also earn you experience points.

After quite a while, the boss will either go back to his standing-attack phase
(if you haven't caused enough damage), or it will simply stand up as the screen
is filled with whiteness, and we're forced to repeat the events of the
beginning of the battle. Let's just say it's the latter, and use Reaction as 
necessary. By the time boss lands, you know you can get some free shots on it's
head. If it's not dead by this point, simply repeat the above tactics to do 
any necessary extra damage, and it'll fall soon.

The rewards for this battle are a boost to HP, and the Guard ability.

+---------------------------------+-------------------+
| Axel (First)                    | N/A               |
+---------------------------------+-------------------+
| 1. Throws fiery rings at you.                       | 
| 2. Kneels down, then rushes behind Roxas and uses   |
|    rings and fire to do a vicious combo attack.     |
| 3. Raises fire from the ground to hurt Roxas. Yells |
|    "Burn!" before doing this.                       |
| 4. Drops one ring, flames engulf upper body, and a  |
|    hard-hitting combo follows.                      |
+-----------------------------------------------------+
| With Axel's fiery personality, and powers, and the  |
| spiky rings he uses to attack, I couldn't help but  |
| get the impression that Axel is a Johnny Cash fan.  |
+-----------------------------------------------------+

Axel is a tough boss. Your best bet is to lock-on right at the start and un-
leash combo after combo on him. After you score a few good hits, Axel's going
to start hitting heavy on the offense. Jump around, or use the Guard ability to
dodge or stop his attacks.

Usually after you hit him with a combo or so, he'll kneel down. Then, he rushes
up behind Roxas, and goes for a fiery combo, using his rings and his fire
abilities. The best bet to counter this is to run away while he's kneeling,
then use Guard to block his charging attack (or jump away to dodge it).

Sometimes after that, he'll raise fire from the ground. You can tell when he'll
do this because he yells "Burn!" right before it, so it's easy to dodge, and
move in for the attack.

Keep up the offensive and use healing items as needed and you'll be through 
with this battle in no time. You don't get anything for winning, except some 
mild satisfaction.

| Axel (Second)                   | 345 HP            |
+---------------------------------+-------------------+
| 1. Throws fiery rings at you.                       | 
| 2. Kneels down, then rushes behind Roxas and uses   |
|    rings and fire to do a vicious combo attack.     |
| 3. Raises fire from the ground to hurt Roxas. Yells |
|    "Burn!" before doing this.                       |
| 4. Drops one ring, flames engulf upper body, and a  |
|    hard-hitting combo follows.                      |
| 5. Axel engulfs the entire arena floor with flames. |
| 6. Disappears behind wall of flames, then rushes    |
|    out with a powerful dash attack.                 |
+-----------------------------------------------------+
| Nothing to say here! Focus on Axel!                 |
+-----------------------------------------------------+

Axel's got the same tricks from his first battle, plus some new ones this time
around. To start off with, he covers the floor in flames at the beginning of
the battle. What does this mean? It means Roxas will take damage slowly every
second he's on this floor. Naturally, I suggest focusing on aerial attacks
and combos at first. Use air combos to take down his first, shorter health bar,
then try and sneak a ground combo in somewhere.

Why the ground combo? Well, your ground combo launches him up in the air, which
opens up the option of using the Reaction attack "Overtaker." Use Overtaker, 
and it's follow-up, Clear Light, to cause some nice damage to Axel, and clear
the flames from the arena floor.

Ground combos work nicely from here on. Occassionally, Axel will teleport
behind the wall of flames and stay there momentarily. Press R1 to lock-on to 
where he's hiding and be ready, because he charges out with a powerful attack.

Keep the assault up (healing if necessary, of course), and you should have him
beat in no time. He'll probably cover the floor with flames sometime before his
death, but if you keep pounding him, he'll be defeated before the oppurtunity
to use Overtaker/Clear Light comes up again! After winning this battle, you get
a boost to your HP stat.

| Shan-Yu                         | 442 HP            |
+---------------------------------+-------------------+
| 1. Charges across arena, sword out.                 | 
| 2. Leaps into the air in a spirial, sword out-      |
|    stretched.                                       |
| 3. Sword-swipe combo.                               |
| 4. Locks swords with Sora, use Reaction Commands.   |
+-----------------------------------------------------+
| Red Rocket, the Limit command, is very useful in    |
| this battle, as it can damage Shan, his bird, and   |
| any Heartless enemies nearby.                       |
+-----------------------------------------------------+

Shan-Yu may look intimidating, but he's a cinch. Start the battle off by going
right into Valor Form. Rush forward and hit Shan-Yu with repeated combos. You
should be able to do quite a bit of damage (I took over a bar and a quarter of
his health) by the time Valor Form runs out.

Once it does, you'll notice another piece of Shan's plan -- he has Heartless
attacking the gates to the palace. The palace gates have a health bar, and if
they are fully depleted, it's game over. If they're a problem (usually they 
aren't, your teammates have a great habit of taking them out), abandon Shan for
a few moments and help protect the gates.

Before moving back to attacking Shan, focus on his falcon. It can be quite a
pest, as it's speedy and has decent-hitting attacks. Once it's dead, all you
have to worry about is Shan, who, luckily, isn't much to worry about.

A few more combos should easily take care of Shan-Yu here. For winning the
battle, Sora gets a boost to HP and the ability Aerial Sweep. Donald and Mulan
get a boost to HP, and Goofy gets the ability Goofy Turbo.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Thresholder and Possessor       | 137 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Swipes you with outstretched arms.               | 
 | 2. Evil breath comes from their mouths.             |
 | 3. Creates a large ball of Dark Energy that breaks  |
 |    multiple balls.                                  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | If the small Heartless are getting too annoying,    |
 | take a moment to defeat them. Use Reaction Commands |
 | to defeat the Hook Bats and the Gargoyles easily.   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Let's start off with a nice assault against Thresholder. Immediately go into
Valor Form and rush the creepy door with the long arms. Beat away on it, and
it's HP bar should go down fairly quickly. When it's completely dissipated,
Possessor reveals itself. A floating purple ball that kicks your ass. Yeah.

Possessor floats around the room, doing nothing. Lock on to him early on and 
chase him down, getting in as many hits as you can before Valor Form wears off.

You're not going to be able to fully deplete his HP the first time, and he'll
eventually retreat back into Thresholder. Around this time, the wandering 
Heartless in the room are probably getting on your nerves.

Stay to the back of the room to avoid Thresholder's outstretched arms. The 
Heartless in the room will make their way back to you, giving you the oppur-
tunity to destroy them without taking damage from the Thresholder.

Once you've eliminated the few remaining waves of Heartless, make another
attack run on the door. Approach from the side as you head in, and unleash
combo after combo. Possessor will soon be released again, and you'll be able
to pound on him and put an end to the battle. For winning, Sora gets the
ability Upper Slash, Donald gets the ability Donald Fire, and Goofy gets an
HP Boost.

 | attacks. However, I find it easier to just attack   |
 | him and use "Wake Up" when his HP reaches zero.     |
 | That way, you don't have to do any recharges.       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Fighting against the Beast is amazingly simple. Unleash combo after combo
on him. Don't get trapped in a corner, and lay the beat down on him. After
you deplete his HP fully, use Triangle to activate Cogsworth "Wake Up" command.
Press Triangle repeatedly to charge him up, then a strong beam of wake-upness
will zap the Beast, bringing him back to his senses. Sora gains an extra Armor
Slot, allowing him to equip more armor. Donald gets an HP Boost, and Goofy
gets the Defender ability.

 | Shadow Stalker                  | 176 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Appears as a giant form in the window and shoots |
 |    projectiles.                                     |
 | 2. Joins with one of the many surrounding pillars   |
 |    and hides, use attacks and Reaction to bring him |
 |    out.                                             |
 | 3. Goes into the ground, and tries to "eat" Sora    |
 |    from below.                                      |
 | 4. Leaps up to the chandelier, brings it down, then |
 |    shoots lasers from the sides. Use attacks and    |
 |    Reaction to bring him out.                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Nothing here, focus on the Heartless!               |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Lock-on is the most important thing in this battle. Constantly lock onto the
Stalker, just to keep track of him! His first attack often varies. He'll
either fly into the window, into a pillar, go up to the chandelier, or go into
the ground. Try and unleash a combo on it before it does whatever attack.

If it went into a pillar, attack the pillar it's in until it's small HP bar
is depleted, then use the Reaction Commands to Release it, and leave it open to
some more combos.

If it went into the ground, watch for a white light to appear at Sora's feet,
and jump away to dodge it's "eat" attack. Attack it when it comes up from the
ground.

If it went into the windows, line up with a vertical frame of the windows in
front of you, or rush towards the pillars on the sides to avoid the huge attack
he lets loose. Then move in for the attack when it comes out of the window.

If it went up to the chandelier, and dropped it down, dodge it's laser attacks
that it bombards you with, then move in towards the Chandelier and unleash
combo after combo on the monster on it.

Anytime the monster is in limbo (floating from one area to the next), unleash
combos on it. Follow these tactics, and the monster will be down in no time.

 | Dark Thorn                      | 390 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Claw swipes.                                     |
 | 2. Goes invisible, and unleashes combos on you.     |
 | 3. Leaps up to the chandelier, brings it down, then |
 |    shoots lasers from the sides.                    |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Anyone else think Dark Thorn looks a tad bit like   |
 | Final Fantasy Summon favorite Ifrit? Something      |
 | about his red hair, horns, claws and body reminded  |
 | me of the friendly hell demon.                      |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Dark Thorn is considerably tougher than Shadow. The best way to get an early
advantage in this battle is by going into Valor Form immediately. Thorn should
have a considerably smaller amount of HP by the time your three gauges have run
out.

Fighting towards the center of the ballroom causes Thorn to use his chandelier
attack more often, which can be a pain. However, it also allows Sora to use
an absolutely AWESOME three-part Reaction attack where HE brings the chandelier
down, and you get to use it to attack the Dark Thorn. 

Sometimes Thorn will throw Sora across the room. Not fun, it may seem, but if
you're thrown anywhere near the pillars, you can use a quick Reaction Command
to slingshot Sora towards the enemy. You can then unleash some more attacks.

Dark Thorn will sometimes turn invisible. You'll have to search him out, and
attack him with all your might. If you keep the assault up, you'll have Dark
Thorn defeated.

For winning this battle, Sora gets the Retaliating Slash ability and HP Boost
for Sora, Donald and The Beast get an HP Boost, and Goofy gets an Item Slot.
After the cutscene, you get the CURE ELEMENT, as well.

 | Cerberus                        | 440 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Bites.                                           |
 | 2. Jumps and twirls around, hitting you with tail.  |
 | 3. Leaps up into the air and crashes down, causing  |
 |    a shockwave.                                     |
 | 4. Outer heads pull back, then lunge inward, grabb- |
 |    ing Sora, use Reaction to defend.                |
 | 5. Heads create dark fireballs.                     |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Cerberus, this time around, is easier than his KHI  |
 | counterpart. He doesn't move around the battlefield |
 | as much, and he lacks some annoying old attacks.    |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+ 

Donald and Goofy aren't in your party this time around. Luckily, Auron provides
more than enough back up for a battle of this caliber. Start off the battle by
going into Overdrive and focusing on any of Cerberus' heads. Just try to let
loose as many attacks as possible.

Once your Limit has been used, lock onto the middle head and let loose with
air combos (the Star Seeker Keyblade has Air Combo Plus, to add an extra slash
to your air combos, try using this). Also, when attacking the middle head, you
increase the chances of the outer heads pulling back, then striking inwards and
clutching Sora. Why would you want this to happen? Because it allows you to
initiate a 3-part Reaction Command counter-attack, which takes off a lot of
health, and knocks Cerberus out temporarily, allowing you to go in for even 
more hits.

The battle isn't that hard. Keep up the offensive, and retreat if your health
gets low. It's easy to fall back from the battle, heal yourself, and re-enter
before taking any additional damage. For winning, Sora gets the Dodge Slash
ability, and Auron gets an HP Boost.

 | Demyx (First)                   | N/A               |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Creates 100 water forms to fight you.            |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Get used to fighting these water forms, you'll need |
 | the experience for later!                           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 
This isn't a battle, per'se, as you never actually fight Demyx. In fact, all
you fight here are the water figures he creates with his badass Sitar. There
are 100 forms total, and you have 80 seconds to defeat them all. That's a
minute and twenty seconds, people. You may think that unleashing combo after
combo on grouped together forms works well, and while it's not bad by any
means, it's not the best way of heading into this situation.

The best way, you ask? Use the Wild Dance Reaction Command on the water forms,
and repeatedly press Triangle to swing it round and round, and finally throw
it into the air, where it sucks in and destroys other forms. Using Wild Dance,
you should be able to destroy all 100 forms before the timer runs out easily.

For defeating Demyx's err, forms, Sora and Goofy get HP Boosts, and Donald gets
the ability MP Rage. You also receive the Olympus Stone, allowing you to use
your full abilities.

 | Pete (First)                    | 264 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Throws bombs at you.                             |
 | 2. When angry, rushes forward in repeated tackles.  |
 | 3. Creates a shockwave on the ground, after dancing.|
 | 4. Brings boulders down from the ceiling.           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Pete's invincible phase is a pain in the ass. You   |
 | can't do anything about it until the second phase   |
 | of the battle, though.                              |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Right now, you have to focus on protecting Meg. Her life bar appears in the
top-left corner of the screen, and the red on it will grow in accordance with
the damage she takes. Take a quick moment at the start of the battle to get rid
of the annoying Hook Bats, then, when they're eliminated, go into Valor Form
and attack Pete relentlessly.

You'll only be able to get in a combo to a combo and a half before Pete goes
"invincible" and makes a shield. This only lasts a few seconds, so keep an eye
on him and go back on the offensive when the shield goes away. After you almost
deplete all of Pete's HP, a cutscene starts and the second part of the battle
commences.

Hercules has arrived, and this battle becomes much easier. When Pete becomes
"invincible" and gains a shield, you can knock him into Hercules using the 
"Pinball" Reaction Command. This only gets rid of his shield, so once it's 
gone, move in for some swift attacks. You can also use the Reaction Command
"Aura Guard" when near Hercules, to protect you from Pete's attacks, like the
boulders he summons.

When you finally win the battle, Sora gets the Trinity Limit ability, which
is incredibly useful and fantastic. Goofy gains the ability Hyper Healing, and
Donald gets an HP Boost.

 | Hydra                           | 462 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Whips tail at you.                               |
 | 2. Uses lightning bolts against you.                |
 | 3. Uses black projectile balls of death.            |
 | 4. Bites at you.                                    |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Megara can be found cheering you on just on the out-|
 | side of the battlefield. She'll toss you HP Orbs if |
 | you need 'em.                                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

You start off only fighting one head. It will swing its tail to attack, and 
sometimes moves it's head down to bite. Take the oppurtunity while it's head
is down to attack relentlessly. When you deplete it's HP bar, it's head will
get all crooked, and you'll have a Reaction oppurtunity. Use the chance, and
cut off it's head.

It's severed neck will fall into the ground. Three new heads will pop up around
the arena. You can focus on each one, bringing it's HP down and then severing
it, though this can take a while, and runs the risk of a new head sprouting in
an old one's place if you take too long.

Preferably, follow Phil's advice and get on the Hydra's back. You'll then get
the oppurtunity for a two-part Reaction attack, Phil One-Two and the Urninator.
This knocks all three Hydras into a state of unconsciousness, and allows you
the oppurtunity to freely bring their HP down and sever their head. My 
recommendation? Go into Valor Form, and go on a rampage. Not only does Valor
increase the amount of hits you can do, but with each strike, you give more
and more experience to Valor Form, getting you closer to levelling it up.

Once you sever the three heads, the neck pulls itself up from the ground...this
time with seven fresh heads. The number of attacks increases greatly now.
Not only with the standard tail sweeps and bites, but with summoned lightning
bolts and black projectile balls that I've labelled balls of death. At certain
times, two heads will lower and give you the oppurtunity to move in for the 
attack. Occassionally, you might even be able to leap onto a head while it's
low to the ground. This keeps you out of harm's way, and also gives you the
oppurtunity to get a few extra hits in.

Sometimes, you'll get a Reaction oppurtunity for Pegasus Run. For this attack,
Sora leaps upon Pegasus' back and flies around the large monster, making swipes
at each of its heads. This causes massive damage, and if you're lucky, you get
the option several times during the battle.

For winning this battle, Sora gets the THUNDER ELEMENT (giving you the ability
to cast Thunder) and an HP Boost, Goofy gets an HP Boost, and Donald gets an
extra Armor Slot in the menu.

 | Pete (Past)                     | 123 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Pete punches you.                                |
 | 2. Pete runs around, flailing, hitting anything in  |
 |    his way.                                         |
 | 3. Creates shockwave by falling to the ground after |
 |    running around.                                  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Anyone find it weird that Pete, in his early days,  |
 | yet is very clearly a dog in the future? What the   |
 | hell? I can understand changing looks, but changing |
 | species completely?                                 |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Start off this battle by unleashing a few combos on Pete. Once approximately
half of his life bar is depleted, he should start to run around, hitting you
if you're in his way. Use Reaction (About Face) to send him in a different
direction and wait until he comes to a halt. When he does, initiate Valor Form
and beat the living crap out of him, until the rest of his health bar goes 
away. If you timed it right, and Valor is at level 2 or 3, then rather than
running out of Gauge power before the battle ends, you'll still be in Valor
Form when it ends, and when you resume control after the following cutscene,
you'll be out of Valor Form and still have all three gauges filled. Neat 
little trick, eh?

 | Pete (Steamboat)                | N/A               |

 | 1. Pete throws debris at you.                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Heartless only appear if you fall off the crane. Do |
 | your best not to fall off, and you won't have to    |
 | worry about added pests.                            |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Pete's tryiung to make his getaway with the Cornerstone and we've got to stop
him. He throws debris at you from the steamboat, which you can block and knock
back at him using Reaction Commands. After four or so hits with his own debris,
the steamboat will spin out of control and land near shore, Pete unconscious 
on the cage.

Run up to the boat, and grab onto the crane using Reaction Commands. It will
move you towards the cage, and you'll be able to lay a few whacks into it,
bringing it's health bar down and breaking it some. Watch out, though. The 
crane will move back into it's original position, and if you don't hit the
Reaction Command in time, you'll fall off and have to deal with Heartless, then
repeat the whole process of making the steamboat crash. Make sure you hang onto
the crane, then when it moves back into attack position, unload on the cage and
save the Cornerstone.

For winning, Sora gets the Slapshot ability, Donald learns the Fantasia Limit
and the Auto-Limit ability, and Goofy gets an HP Boost. Hm, Goofy sorta got
shafted...

 | 2. Punches Sora.                                    |
 | 3. Creates large shockwave.                         |
 | 4. Shields himself.                                 |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | With no Hercules this time, Pete's shield is again  |
 | impossible to overcome. And don't even get me       |
 | started on the time paradoxes this battle would     |
 | cause...                                            |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Pete's attacking both your crew, and past Pete. Luckily, past Pete helps out
some (but not much during this battle). Use unrelenting attacks on Pete, and 
only back off if you need to heal. Valor Form is advised, as well. Pete soon
decides to change the scenary, and we go from the Wharf to Scene of the Fire.

This isn't quite the Scene of the Fire that you were at earlier (it appears to
be the Wharf, with some added burning buildings), but oh well. Valor Form
should still be in effect, and you should take your oppurtunity to lay some
ass kicking on Pete before it runs out. If past Pete starts running around
crazily, use the About Face Reaction to knock him back into future Pete. Pete
soon decides to change the area to Mickey's House.

Ignore the sucking vortex, and unload some more combos onto Pete. Trinity 
Limit works okay, but because Pete's using his shield again, you can't really
get the full effect of it. Just focus on ground and air combos. If his shield
goes up, back away and wait for it to fall before moving in to attack again.
Yawn.

Next area is a modified Lilliput (modified as in, different from the earlier 
Lilliput, just like Scene of the Fire was different). I wasn't in this area for
that long. I did roughly two combos on Pete and he changed the area that 
quickly. Odd, but whatever. Next, and finally, is the Building Site.

Like earlier, the scaffolding has a tendency to send you and your enemies 
bouncing into the air. Use these oppurtunities to use the Air Slash Reaction
on Pete, which does some awesome damage against the big guy. Just keep up the
attack (though here it gets a bit annoying, because he throws way too many
bombs and the bouncing can be disorienting) and Pete will be out in no time.

For winning, Sora gets the REFLECT ELEMENT, which allows him to use the Reflect
spell, and he also gets an HP Boost. Goofy gets the Goofy Tornado ability, and
Donald gets an HP Boost.

 | 1. Rushes forward and slashes twice.                |
 | 2. Tackles, causing you to stumble, then slashes    |
 |    twice.                                           |
 | 3. Does a combo of stabs and slashes.               |
 | 4. Tosses four bombs onto the arena.                |
 | 5. Uses a pistol to shoot at Sora.                  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | There are some one-time oppurtunity Reaction        |
 | Commands here. Twin Counter and Riding Shot both    |
 | look really cool, so if you get the oppurtunity to  |
 | use them, don't waste 'em.                          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Unfortunately, Pete summoned the Heartless Illuminator into the battle. 
Illuminator sucks out all the light, leaving the battlefield almost completely
dark, and it's impossible to do any damage to Barbosa, for there is no moon-
light, either. Search the walls for two small beads of light, which are the
Illuminator's eyes, and do a quick combo or two on it to kill it easily.

Light floods in the arena, and now you can kick some pirate captain ass. Use
Valor Form to take off a hefty chunk of his life bar, then use regular combos
until another Illuminator shows up and all the light goes away. Don't worry,
this always happens, you can't avoid it.

Kill the Illuminator again, and re-focus your attack on Barbosa. Use the rarely
available, but awesome-damage doing Reaction attacks like Twin Counter and
Riding Shot if the oppurtunity arises, otherwise, use Sora's Trinity Limit, 
which has produces awesome results.

This isn't a hard battle, and for winning, Sora gets the Aerial Finish ability,
along with an extra Drive Gauge. Goofy acquires the Teamwork Limit attack, and
the Auto-Limit ability, and Donald and Jack receive HP Boosts.

 | 2. Hurls multiple ice chunks at Sora.               |
 | 3. Creates a block of ice around Sora and the gang, |
 |    freezing them solid.                             |
 | 4. Breathes ice onto the ground, making ice cubes.  |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Firagun and Blizzagun are very useful Reaction      |
 | Commands that you can use in this battle. You can   |
 | Firagun when Volcanic Lord is bouncing around and   |
 | Blizzagun when Blizzard Lord breathes ice onto the  |
 | ground.                                             |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

This battle may seem hard, I mean, two huge Heartless at once is pretty 
intimidating. Fortunately, the battle isn't as hard as it would seem, and can
be finished pretty quickly.

The Volcanic Lord starts bouncing around right at the start of the battle. Try
and get under him (sounds crazy, right?) so the Reaction Command Firagun 
appears. This does decent damage to him and knocks him down. Lock onto him 
after this and rush forward, getting in as many combos as you can. Eventually,
he'll explode, leaving several Fiery Globe Heartless in his place.

After Volcanic Lord explodes, Blizzard Lord decides he wants a piece of you.
See, the bosses take turns attacking you. Start off with some air combos to do
hefty damage to Blizzard Lord, and use the Blizzagun Reaction Command when it
appears (whenever he starts to breath ice onto the ground).

Suckily, the Blizzard Form sometimes freezes you and your allies. Nothing you
can do here, except wait until you're unfrozen. If you're unfrozen, but your
partners are unfrozen, a nice Fire spell thaws them out. Eventually, Blizzard
Lord explodes as well, leaving Icy Cube Heartless in his place. Volcanic Lord
decides he wants a piece of you again, and the battle continues.

If you can aim it right, Firagun can launch Volcanic Lord into Blizzard Lord,
causing major damage to both. Valor Form is also extremely useful, allowing you
to get in more hits in less time. Keep repeating this simple process and the
victory will be yours in no time.

For taking out the two Lords, Sora learns the Explosion finishing ability, 
Goofy gets an extra Armor Slot, and Aladdin and Donald get HP Boosts.

 | 2. Claws at you twice.                              |
 | 3. Bites once or multiple times.                    |
 | 4. Goes high into the air, and spins around, hurling|
 |    bombs.                                           |
 | 5. Hurls fireball at you.                           |
 | 6. Swallows Lock, Shock, or Barrel, or all three.   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Watch for when Prison Keeper does Swallow. He opens |
 | his mouth wide. If you're quick, you can leap into  |
 | it and perform an awesome Reaction attack, Inside   |
 | Combo.                                              |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

As soon as the battle with this creepy Heartless starts out, rush in, leap up,
and begin assaulting him with air combos. After you connect with two, fall back
and lock onto him. You can initiate Goofy's Limit right now, and use Knockback
on his ass, which works incredibly well, or you could use Jack and Sora's
Limit, which work pretty good, as well. Trinity also works just as good.

Prison Keeper retreats high above the battlefield after he's taken some damage,
and begins raining down bombs. He's impossible to hit while on low ground, so
run up Curly Hill and continue the assault, leaping up from the hill to get 
some whacks in on him. Valor Form can be used to deal some extra damage from
the top of the hill, but also consider using Wisdom Form to be able to reach
him from low on the ground.

Prison Keeper has a lot of HP, a whopping five bars, so expect a very long 
fight. You'll probably need to heal more than once, so retreat far away from
the Prison Keeper before doing so.

The (pretty weak) bonuses for winning this battle are the Hyper Healing ability
for Donald, and HP Boosts for Sora, Goofy, and Jack.

 | Oogie Boogie                    | 371 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Throws dice at Sora which explode on impact.     |
 | 2. Giant boxing glove hammers the belt four times,  |
 |    hitting Sora and destroying green gifts.         |
 | 3. Sends lightning bolts along the conveyor belt.   |
 | 4. Purple gifts on the conveyor belt break open to  |
 |    reveal Heartless enemies.                        |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Keep a close eye on the color around the conveyor   |
 | belts you're going into and want to go to, as it    |
 | indicates where you'll end up. If both are blue,    |
 | you'll end up there. Move quickly when changing     |
 | belts, or you may end up on the wrong one.          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

You don't fight Oogie directly for much of this battle. You're on one of three
moving conveyor belts, all going backwards. Don't stay still for too long, or
you'll be moved backwards towards a wall of spikes. Oogie resides in a control
box above the conveyor belt that you cannot reach. Well, how do we win this
battle, you ask?

Green presents are scattered the conveyor belt you're on. When they reach the
wall of spikes, they're destroyed. However, you can use the Reaction Command
"Fore!" to knock the present up into Oogie's box. Fill his control box with ten
boxes, and the glass will shatter, and Oogie will fall through. Use this moment
to move in and begin your attack on Oogie. Normally, I'd recommend using Valor
Form for extra damage, but Oogie has a set time limit before he goes back up
into his box, and while Valor is damaging, there's just not enough time to put
it to good use. However, Jack and Sora's Limit, Applause, Applause, works 
incredibly well in short time. Trinity and Knocksmash work amazingly, too, but
Knocksmash has the fallback of Valor Form.

Oogie re-creates his control box and hops back up. This time, however, it 
shifts to a different conveyor belt, and you'll have to switch using the 
conveyor hole teleporters. Purple presents also start to appear on the conveyor
belts, and these explode to reveal a Heartless. Ignore these, and continue
knocking presents up to Oogie's box. Your partners can handle the Heartless.
Oogie also has a tendency of sending a giant boxing glove to strike down on 
the conveyor belt four times, smashing you and your partners, as well as green
presents. Make a rush to knock the presents up to Oogie's box before they're
smashed, but be careful not to be distracted and get hit by the spikes.

The most you'll have to repeat the process is probably three or four times, 
and Oogie will go down yet again. Sora gains a new Item Slot, Goofy learns the
Once More ability, and Donald and Jack get HP Boosts.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Shenzi, Banzai, and Ed          | 305 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Leaps forward and swipes with claw.              |
 | 2. Tackles forward, knocking you backward.          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | I felt bad during this entire battle, simply        |
 | because of the sad dog noises the hyenas made when  |
 | hit and defeated.                                   |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

The main goal of this battle is to defeat the three hyenas, which isn't a hard
task. However, you also have to protect Timon and Pumbaa. Their life bar is
displayed at the top-left corner of the screen, and if it is filled with red,
it's game over.

The hyenas themselves are very easy to defeat. Lock onto one and unleash an
onslaught of combos on it. Keep track of it, and pummel until it's life bar 
goes down all the way. Each has their own life bar, so just repeat the process
until they all take a nice dirt map. If Timon and Pumbaa ever appear to be at
risk of an attack, use the Call Over Reaction Command quickly. If you time it
right, the hyenas will accidentally attack each other, giving you an easy 
oppurtunity to attack.

For winning, Goofy gains the Lucky Lucky ability, while Sora and Donald get HP
Boosts.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Scar                            | 915 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Spins into the air and scratches.                |
 | 2. Leaps on Sora, and scratches.                    |
 | 3. Engulfs body in flames, then lets out flames in  |
 |    a small area.                                    |
 | 4. Engulfs body in electricity, then lets out       |
 |    lightning in a small area.                       |
 | 5. Rushes around the arena, then attacks.           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Keep an eye out when Scar leaps on you, for during  |
 | this wrestling attack, you can use the Reaction     |
 | Command Counter, which hurls him upwards.           |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

Scar moves quick, and his attacks are swift. The only way you can beat him is
by being even quicker. Rush forward as soon as the battle starts and unleash
a few combos. Use your Dash ability to dodge his attacks after you lay in some
initial damage. Once you see another opening, move in and continue the
onslaught.

King's Pride is an amazing attack, and works well in this battle, just make 
sure Scar isn't far away. This can be used more than once very quickly if you
use some spare Ethers.

After Scar has lost roughly two and a half life bars, he begins his rush 
attack. Energy surrounds his body, and he circles the battlefield at a mad
sprint, then rushes across it, hitting you if you're in the way. He repeats 
this several times, and the best way to keep yourself from being hurt is by
using the Dash ability to move quickly and dodge his furiously quick run. When
the energy disappears, and he comes to a stop, move in for some more attacks.
You'll probably face this attack several times.

Look out when Scar's body is surrounded in flames or electricity, for he'll
unleash a fury of fire or lightning in the area directly around him. All you
have to do is back off when this happens, then move in for attacks afterwards.

When the battle ends, Donald learns the Fire Boost ability, while Sora, Goofy
and Simba get HP Boosts.

 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | Hostile Program                 | 640 HP            |
 +---------------------------------+-------------------+
 | 1. Shoots homing bomb clusters at Sora and co.      |
 | 2. Sends out a blast of white before retreating.    |
 | 3. Uses a large gun to shoot you for multiple hits. |
 | 4. Shoots out large laser beams across the field.   |
 | 5. Quickly jumps off the wall and attacks.          |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+
 | Make sure to collect the Cluster Orbs that he drops |
 | as you attack him, for when you collect enough, you |
 | can use the Reaction Command "Freeze!" to tempo-    |
 | rarily stun the Program and allow you to get some   |
 | free attacks.                                       |
 +-----------------------------------------------------+

The Hostile Program is very intimidating at first glance, but he's a cinch to
defeat. Start off by using your regular combos on him, then move on to more
advanced attacks, such as Tron's Limit "Tron's Pride," or Sora's Trinity Limit.
If you have Goofy in your party, Knocksmash also works incredibly well.

After you beat on this ugly thing for while, you'll probably have collected 
quite a few Cluster Orbs. Probably even filled your whole Cluster Gauge! If 
this is true, take a few steps back from the Hostile Program and use the
"Freeze!" Reaction Command, then you're free to move in and score some extra
hits.

The only problem in this battle is dodging the damn things laser attacks, which
come in several patterns. It's best to have High Jump Lvl 1 (or, if you've been
using Valor Form since you got Master, you could even have gotten it to Level
5, meaning you'd have High Jump Lvl 2!), for better mobility, and Quick Run
(which you get from Wisdom Form) is helpful as well. Just watch his patterns
and learn how to dodge the lasers.

When you win this battle, Sora's Drive Gauge gets powered up to 5, and he 
learns the ability Horizontal Slash. Goofy learns the Jackpot ability, and
Donald and Tron get HP Boosts.

\\\Secret Ending---------------------------------

The Secret Ending offers a possible glimpse into Kingdom Hearts III. How do you
see this video? Well, you have to play on Standard or Proud Mode. Sorry,
Beginner players, but it's not unlocked for you.

On Standard Mode, you must complete each world as you would going through a 
normal game, AND you must fully complete Jiminy's Journal. How do you know if
everything is complete? A gold Mickey Mouse head will appear next to all
worlds.

On Proud Mode, all you have to do is complete each world as you would going
through a normal game. Much more simple, eh?

This section covers the actual FAQ of the guide. Any questions I've seen 
commonly asked on the board, or commonly e-mailed to me, I will include here.
Not so many, now that we're at the start. But who knows what the future holds?

Question 1: Why waste your time on this? Do you have no life? Blah blah nerd?

Answer 1: I "waste my time" because I enjoy writing things, especially about
games that I enjoy. I also enjoy being helpful. Why are you reading this FAQ if
you don't need help for Kingdom Hearts II? Oh, I'm sorry. I'm afraid I answered
your question with another question.

Question 2: Where can I find all the Orichalcum+? I want to create Ultima
Weapon!

Answer 2: A complete list of where to get the Orichalcum+ is given in the
Synthesis section. For reference, here it is again:

Space Paranoids      -   Chest in Central Computer Mesa
Twilight Town        -   Chest in Sunset Terrace
100 Acre Wood        -   Complete Starry Hill in 100 Acre Wood
Atlantica            -   Complete "A New Day is Dawning" in Atlantica
Olympus Coliseum     -   Complete the Goddess of Fate Cup
World That Never Was -   Chest in The Brink of Despair
Obtain at least one of each Material item

Yes, there are only seven.

My name is Lestat Gray (yes, it's my real name), and I'm more commonly known 
as LionHart627. I live in the state of Maryland (recently moved here). I'm 28,
and enjoy numerous things. I'm a fan of music, art, books, and of course,
video games. I have quite a collection of games, all of which I love with a
passion so extreme that I consider them my children.

I picked up the first Kingdom Hearts "late in the game," about a year or so
after it came out, and it's story, gameplay, characters and music all drew me
in and held me captivated, and revisiting the worlds I'd known throughout my
youth only made me like it even more. From the moment I finished the game and
saw the secret ending, I was ready for the sequel. And now it's here, and I do
hope my FAQ does it justice. I love you, Donald Duck!
