                                  INTRODUCTION
=============================================================================
When the Final Mix version of KH2 hit Japanese stores in 2007, the series'
devoted fans were treated to a wealth of new game material.  There were the
new abilities and Drive Form, which elevated the story battles from merely fun
to brain-breakingly awesome.  There was the massive new bonus dungeon, with
its formidable obstacle courses that led up to 13 of the scariest bosses in
the franchise.

But the most extensive addition to the Final Mix version of the game was the
puzzle piece sidequest.  Where the new bosses test your battle prowess, this
sidequest tests your persistence and ability to reach out-of-the-way
locations.  In fact, its sheer scale may be the most intimidating thing about
it: 144 pieces scattered across 15 worlds, many of which require visits to
previously completed worlds and hours of training Sora's Drive Forms.  Though
completing the puzzles is the only way to obtain some of the best items and
equipment in the game, many players may be turned off by the difficulty of
tracking down some of the better-hidden pieces and neglect the sidequest
entirely.

This guide was written for just such players.  In it you will find a complete
listing of all 144 puzzle pieces, as well as their exact locations, when they
can be obtained, and what Abilities are required to reach them.  If you're
curious about the rewards for completing the puzzles or just want help
completing a specific puzzle, there is also information on the puzzles
themselves and the great prizes for completing them.

|     | First obtainable: After the first boss in the World That Never Was   |
|     | Puzzle: 5                                                            |
|     | Other notes: Possibly the toughest piece of all, since you can't use |
|     |    Growth Abilities in Lion Form.  To reach it, you will need to     |
|     |    jump from the ledge and perform a complete air combo (only        |
|     |    possible with Combo Master).  The combo will carry you in a       |
|     |    straight line, so line up your jump carefully.                    |
|     | NOTE: Several readers have informed me that it is possible to obtain |
|     |    this piece on the first visit, by performing a Dash and then      |
|     |    jumping as you reach the edge.  While I have yet to successfully  |
|     |    do so myself, I can say with certainty that the Combo Master      |
|     |    method is much easier.  Since you can't complete the fifth puzzle |
|     |    until well after you've learned Combo Master anyway, I suggest    |
|     |    you ignore this piece until then.                                 |

==============================================================================
                                  THE PUZZLES
==============================================================================

Of course, collecting all the pieces would be pointless if you neglected the
puzzles themselves.  Each puzzle is based on a piece of official artwork,
which must be reassembled from the collected pieces.  Some puzzles only
require you to move the pieces to the appropriate position, while others
require you to rotate the pieces as well.  When the completed image is formed,
the game rewards you with a rare and valuable prize.

For the convenience of those who are only interested in one particular puzzle,
and don't want to worry about the 96 pieces required by the last two, the
pieces required to complete each puzzle are listed in chronological order.  To
save space, only the world where the piece is found and its number in Jiminy's
Journal are listed; more detailed information can be found in the main listing
above.


*PUZZLE 1*

-Overview: As the first puzzle the player has access to, it is also the
easiest to complete.  This puzzle can be completed before your first visit to
the 100 Acre Wood, and requires no Growth Abilities.  The puzzle itself is not
much more difficult to solve.

-Puzzle Pieces: 1) Twilight Town #16 (obtained in the Puzzle Piece tutorial)
                2) Hollow Bastion #8
                3) Hollow Bastion #5
                4) Hollow Bastion #11
                5) Land of Dragons #5
                6) Land of Dragons #8
                7) Land of Dragons #7
                8) Beast's Castle #5
                9) Beast's Castle #6
                10) Beast's Castle #7
                11) Beast's Castle #8
                12) Beast's Castle #2

-Solution Tips: This one's a cinch, especially since you don't have to rotate
the pieces.  If you need advice, just remember that Sora is in the center of
the picture and you should be fine.  Looking for the red lines at the edge of
the picture isn't a bad idea, either.

-Prize: AP Up.  A fairly minor reward, but considering how little effort you
spend to get it it's well worth it.


*PUZZLE 2*

-Overview: This puzzle requires a bit more effort, but still isn't too bad.
This puzzle can be completed during the first Port Royal mission, just before
the Barbossa boss battle.  High Jump Lv2 is required for some pieces, so you
will have to spend some time training with Valor Form.

-Puzzle Pieces: 1) Hollow Bastion #7
                2) Land of Dragons #1
                3) Land of Dragons #4
                4) Beast's Castle #4
                5) Olympus Coliseum #1
                6) Olympus Coliseum #2
                7) Olympus Coliseum #9
                8) Disney Castle #2
                9) Disney Castle #3
                10) Timeless River #3
                11) Port Royal #1
                12) Port Royal #9

-Solution tips: This picture is taken from the cover art to the original
Kingdom Hearts II, except with a blue-sky background instead of gray, so you
can use that as a reference.  Some rotation is required, so it can be a bit
more difficult than the first puzzle.  Start with the silver tip of the heart
(bottom center) and the Mickey piece (top center), and the rest should fall in
line pretty quickly.

-Prize: Serenity Crystal.  While you can pick up a few of these as rewards at
the Moogle Shop, it's still rare enough to be well worth the effort.


*PUZZLE 3*

-Overview: You can complete this puzzle after reaching both Agrabah and
Halloween Town, and getting through the mandatory battles at the beginning of
both missions.  As with the second puzzle, High Jump Lv2 is required for
certain pieces.

-Puzzle Pieces: 1) Hollow Bastion #4
                2) Olympus Coliseum #8
                3) Olympus Coliseum #4
                4) Disney Castle #5
                5) Disney Castle #4
                6) Timeless River #1
                7) Atlantica #3
                8) Port Royal #3
                9) Port Royal #10
                10) Agrabah #1
                11) Halloween Town #1
                12) Halloween Town #3

-Solution tips: This can be a tricky one, but the puzzle is still small enough
that it shouldn't take too much time.  Start by putting the moon pieces in the
upper half of the picture, and the rest will fall in line.

-Prize: The recipe for the Draw Ring (and, with a Serenity Crystal, the Lucky
Ring).  While the Draw Ring itself is only important for Mushroom III's
minigame (though in that particular case, it is VERY important), the Lucky
Ring is quite helpful to anyone with plans to do a lot of synthesizing.  A
pretty valuable prize, and well worth the effort of getting it.


*PUZZLE 4 [EDGE]*

-Overview: This one requires some revisiting of old locations, but it's still
fairly quick.  You can complete this puzzle as soon as you've reached Space
Paranoids and obtained Master Form.  High Jump Lv2 and Aerial Dodge Lv1 are
required for some of the pieces, requiring you to train Master Form as well as
Valor Form.

-Puzzle Pieces: 1) Timeless River #2
                2) Atlantica #1
                3) Atlantica #2
                4) Port Royal #4
                5) Agrabah #2
                6) Agrabah #3
                7) Agrabah #8
                8) Halloween Town #6
                9) Twilight Town #3
                10) Twilight Town #4
                11) Hollow Bastion #3
                12) Land of Dragons #3

-Solution tips: You might recognize this one from the cover of the original
Kingdom Hearts II game manual.  Simply put Kairi's feet in the bottom center,
turn all the pieces upright, and the puzzle will more or less solve itself.

-Prize: Found Illusion.  This Final Mix-exclusive material is a required
ingredient in four of the most powerful accessories in the game (the Draw
Ring, the Lucky Ring, and the powerful Strength- and Magic-boosting
accessories from the Marluxia and Zexion Silhoutte battles), but it's also
ridiculously rare.  Aside from a single chest in the Cavern of Remembrance,
the only other sources of the material are the superboss Terra (after beating
him at least twice) and synthesizing it from other hard-to-get materials
through Free Development (after earning over 1300 EXP to raise your Moogle to
Level 8).  Easily the most valuable prize for the effort spent to get it.


*PUZZLE 5*

-Overview: Where the first four puzzles were small but profitable diversions
that require only a small investment of time, the last two are each full-blown
sidequests that require lots of Form training and revisits to previously
completed worlds.  You might as well finish training your forms before you
tackle this puzzle: you need High Jump Lv3, Aerial Dodge Lv1, and Glide Lv3 to
reach several of these pieces.  Story-wise, you must complete both Olympus
Coliseum and Pride Lands missions, reach Ansem's Study during the third Hollow
Bastion mission (you do not need to complete the Space Paranoids part of the
mission), complete the entire 100 Acre Wood, and defeat Xigbar in the World
That Never Was.

-Puzzle Pieces: 1) Land of Dragons #6
                2) Beast's Castle #3
                3) Olympus Coliseum #3
                4) Olympus Coliseum #5
                5) Disney Castle #1
                6) 100 Acre Wood #4
                7) Port Royal #7
                8) Port Royal #5
                9) Agrabah #5
                10) Agrabah #10
                11) Agrabah #11
                12) Agrabah #9
                13) Agrabah #6
                14) Agrabah #7
                15) Halloween Town #4
                16) Halloween Town #5
                17) Halloween Town #7
                18) Twilight Town #2
                19) Pride Lands #5
                20) Pride Lands #6
                21) Pride Lands #3
                22) Pride Lands #4
                23) Pride Lands #7
                24) Pride Lands #8
                25) Pride Lands #9
                26) 100 Acre Wood #3
                27) Pride Lands #2
                28) Hollow Bastion #2
                29) Space Paranoids #2
                30) 100 Acre Wood #2
                31) Olympus Coliseum #6
                32) Olympus Colliseum #7
                33) 100 Acre Wood #5
                34) Land of Dragons #9
                35) 100 Acre Wood #6
                36) Port Royal #12
                37) Agrabah #13
                38) Agrabah #12
                39) Hollow Bastion #10
                40) Twilight Town #11
                41) Twilight Town #14
                42) Twilight Town #13
                43) Pride Lands #10
                44) Twilight Town #1
                45) Twilight Town #10
                46) 100 Acre Wood #1
                47) Land of Dragons #10
                48) The World That Never Was #4

-Solution tips: Just be grateful that you don't have to rotate the pieces this
time.  The picture is a big montage of the Re:Chain of Memories cast, featured
on the back cover of the game box.  (The American re-release of the game
features a larger version on its back cover, for those who have that version.)
To solve this, you really need to pay attention to the blue lines at the
border of the picture.  Start by locating the four corner pieces (make sure to
move them around, since it's sometimes unclear which piece a blue line is
attached to), then move the other border pieces to the appropriate side, and
rearrange the pieces from there.  I find it helpful to start with Marluxia's
distinctive pink hair (he's in the lower left corner), then fill in Sora and
Riku above him, and solve the rest of the puzzle from there.  Be especially
careful about the torsos along the bottom of the screen, since it can be hard
to tell all the black coats apart.

-Prize: Executive Ring.  While it takes a whole lot of effort to acquire, the
extra 30 AP (!) the accessory gives you is well worth the trouble.


*PUZZLE 6*

-Overview: The puzzle to end them all.  Like the previous puzzle, you need
High Jump Lv3, Aerial Dodge Lv1, and Glide Lv3 to reach many of these.  This
one cannot be completed until a good bit later, though: you must complete the
final Space Paranoids mission, go through the entire Cavern of Remembrance
(though you are not required to fight the Nobody battles), and defeat Saix in
the World That Never Was.

-Solution tips: I hate this one.  Put the large number of low-resolution
pieces together with the need to rotate them, and you have a mess that will
probably take you longer to solve than the other five puzzles combined.  Even
more than before, you absolutely must pay attention to the blue lines marking
the borders of the picture.  (Though since you often can't be sure which side
an edge piece corresponds to, this involves some guesswork too.)  Turn the
pieces upright first, when possible, and otherwise look carefully for matching
colors and shapes between pieces.  As for more specific advice, pay special
attention to Sora, Axel, and Xemnas; all of them appear on the right side of
the picture, in that order from top to bottom.  The lower middle is a mess of
black coats and indistinct faces, so you would be wise to leave that section
for last.  (A small version of the same picture can be found on the back cover
of the game box.)

-Prize: Highest Ribbon.  For such a difficult puzzle, this is a pretty
disappointing reward.  While it is the best elemental armor in the game, its
25% resistance isn't that much better than the Ribbon (which has 15%
resistance and the same Defense bonus).  It would be more impressive if the
armor came as a recipe, in which case the superior resistance could stack for
greater effect, but since you only get one you're effectively left with a
slightly more effective Ribbon that you don't have to synthesize.  If you're
not solving the puzzle for 100% journal completion or the simple satisfaction
of completing a formidable sidequest, I wouldn't bother.

starkk: Without his impressively comprehensive Translation FAQ I never would
have completed my first Final Mix playthrough, let alone mastered it to the
point where I could write this guide.  Everything I did involving the new
additions to Final Mix was heavily dependent on his FAQ.

ElectroSpectre: His Kingdom Hearts II FAQ was my indispensable reference for
everything that was kept from the original game.  This guy's KH and KH2 FAQs
remain two of the finest guides I have seen for any game.

Square-Enix: For making this wonderful expansion of an already-great game.
Even if they were foolish enough to never bring it to America.
