    [1]Introduction
    
    Welcome to my Chain of Memories Walkthrough.
    
    This strategy guide has been written based on the Proud Mode difficulty 
    setting, health lists on bosses should be a little bit different because of 
    the difficulty.
    
    This guide will also try to remain as spoiler free as possible, however
    certain information, like boss names, can be considered spoilers as well
    so be forewarned if you decide to skip ahead and look at what's next.

    [6]Door Cards - How To
    
    Levels in Chain of Memories are Derived in a set number of doors
    following a pathway, these doors will eventually link up with 3 Quest
    doors that can be accessed with Golden Key Cards and another type of
    card specified at the door itself.
    
    Lets take a look at how these pathways / doors work.

            S
    
    S: Start of Level
    
    This is where you will start at the beginning of every level, you
    will usually be presented with some lore or a short battle, and
    achieve your first Golden Key, The Key of Beginnings. In this
    map representation you will need to travel North to continue to
    the next room.
    
    1+: Door Level Requirement
    
    When you try to synthesize a doorway you need 2 different things,
    the first is a Room Card, which drops at the end of every creature
    battle that you fight and an Adequate number on the card itself.
    
    In order to Synthesize a door you will have to approach a door and
    hit Triangle when prompted. This will enter you into the Synthesize
    menu.
    
    The first door you enter will have a '1+' on it when you enter
    the Synthesize menu, this means that in order to Synthesize the door
    properly you must select a card with a value of 1 or higher. It is
    important to choose the lowest value card you can (not zero,
    explained later.) The reason you want to do this is because the next
    doorway will have to be rendered at least one card higher then what
    you just used, (If you use a 6 card to Synthesize this door, the
    next door will need a 7 card or higher.)
    
    If you Synthesize a door with a 9 card, the next door will require a
    9 or higher again, a door will never increase above 9.
    
    If your door counter gets too high and you do not have a higher card
    you can use a 0 door card. This card can be used on any door regardless
    of the required number. Additionally it will not increase the value of
    the next door, so if your counter is at 5 and you use a 0 card, the
    value of the next door will stay at 5.
    
    A: First Gold Key Door - Key of Beginnings
    
    This is the first quest door you will encounter in a level. It will
    require a specific Gold Card that is usually obtained at the start
    of each level.
    
    In this room you will encounter a Lore scenario, usually learning
    something about the world you are in and meeting certain notable
    characters. You may need to fight in a regular battle in order to
    proceed as well, but it would be either a training battle or just
    against regular creatures.
    
    At the end of the room you will receive another Gold Key, the Key
    of Guidance.
    
    
    Once a Quest room is finished the door will vanish, and you will
    be moved to another room, usually the one you Synthesized the doorway
    from. In order to continue on we need to head north again to the next
    room.
    
    When that room is reached we can head to the second Quest Room.
    
    B: Second Gold Key Door - Key of Guidance
    
    This room will function exactly the same as the first Gold Key
    Door, you will encounter a Lore scenario and may need to battle some
    creatures. After this you will be given the final Gold Quest Key,
    the Key to Truth.
    
    
    You will be moved back to the previous room. Head north again to
    gain access to the final door.
    
    C: Third Gold Key Door - Key to Truth
    
    This is the final Quest Door, which will lead you to the boss
    battle of the particular level you are on. Once you have killed
    the boss you will be teleported to the final room, the Conqueror's
    Respite.
    
    Q: Conqueror's Respite
    
    Conqueror's Respite is the final zone in a level. This room has no
    Heartless but will have a Save Spot. There will also be a final
    door that does not need to be Synthesized, this door will lead you
    out of the Level and back to Castle Oblivion.
    
    D: Key of Rewards
    
    This is a special key that is not obtained through a normal level,
    inside of the room will be special rewards.
    
    G: Green Requirement
    R: Red Requirement
    5: Exact # Requirement
    3-: 3 or Less Required
    
    Certain doors will require a special type of card to Synthesize beyond
    a Gold card. These can either be a Colour of card or the number itself.
    
    Examples can be a Green or Red colour, needing exactly 5 or less 
    then 3.
    
    
    [7]Walkthrough - Sora's Story
    
    Before you start this guide, I would highly recommend that you look at
    the door cards topic in this forum, it will explain how to use the
    cards to continue and should help you understand how my guide is
    layed out. If you encounter any problems after that please send me
    a message on my e-mail address, (which can be found at the very
    end of this FAQ, in the final notes section.)
    
    
    [7.1]Main Floor
    
    When you first enter the castle you will be given a Traverse Town
    card, this card can be used on the door in front of you to create
    the first level for you.
    
    A note about Level cards, You will usually be given these cards in
    groups, you will first obtain only Traverse Town, which serves as
    a tutorial level, then after that you will gain 6 level cards.
    
    **The order of the levels that you travel to makes no difference in
      the overall play out of the story, I will list the Levels that I
      chose in order to create a final path, but the levels can be
      switched around based on your own discretion.

    When you first enter Traverse Town and are able to move you will
    be presented with a few boxes, attack these with X to destroy
    them and collect health / Munny orbs. A crate will then appear,
    pick it up with Triangle to throw it. once it is destroyed a
    single Heartless will spawn, engage it and kill it to gain the
    Key to Beginnings.
    
    Go towards the Key of Beginnings door for a Cut scene, Leon will
    teach you how to assemble Sleights and how to break cards. You
    will also receive the Key of Guidance and the Simba summon card.
    
    At the Key of Guidance room you will receive some lore and a
    Key to Truth card, so continue to the next room.
    
    Inside of the Key to Truth room will be your first boss battle
    against the Guard Armour.
    
    
    [7.2a]Guard Armour
    
    Health: 2.5 Bars (divided into 5 Pieces at .5 Bars each)
    
    The Guard Armour is the first boss you will encounter. He
    has 5 Different Armour pieces. His 2 legs, his 2 arms and his
    head. Start by focusing on his feet as much as possible.
    Eventually a new Friend card will drop in the battle, that
    looks like Mickey Mouses Portrait. This is a special Boss
    Counter Card, use it to either counter a bosses move or 
    immediately after a boss ends his attack if the card number 
    is too low. This will cause the boss to fall apart, stunning 
    it for about 5 seconds as it falls into pieces. During this time
    you can freely smash away at it without it counter attacking
    at all.
    
    The Boss Counters will drop around once a minute. You should
    also reload your deck just prior to using the Counter card, as
    you may need all of the cards during the stun time.
    
    Once you take out all of the 5 Pieces to the Guard Armour
    it will die and you will receive the Guard Armour card.
    
    
    After killing it you will be Ported to the Conqueror's Respite
    room. There are no Heartless in here and a save spot, so save
    and head through the final door to go back to Castle Oblivion,
    however be prepared to fight another boss.
    
    
    [7.2b]Axel
    
    Health: 2 Bars
    
    Axel is your first true Boss battle. He has a full card deck that
    he uses in battle, and is able to use Sleights just as you can.
    Because he uses a card deck he has to abide by the same rules that
    you do, meaning that if he uses a Sleight he loses the first card
    and he will have to reload his deck when he runs out of his cards.
    
    Sleight together your lowest cards first (not zero's) then 2 of
    your higher ones to create high damage initial combo's, these
    will also disrupt any of Axel's standard attacks, as long as
    your total is over 9.
    
    Once you have run yourself out of low end cards just focus on
    slamming him with standard attacks and don't waste your time
    on Sleights. When Axel uses a Sleight attack use one of
    your Zero cards and use it to disrupt him.
    
    Reload your deck before you run out of all of your Zero cards, so
    that you do not get caught off-guard by his Sleight abilities, as
    they can cause a lot of damage.
    
    
    Once you finish off Axel he will Drop 5 World Cards; Agrabah,
    Olympus Coliseum, Wonderland, Monstro and Halloween Town. He will
    also give you a Fire Card.
    
    Once you are finished head up to the next floor, note that when
    you leave this floor all of your doors in Twilight Town will
    vanish, meaning in order to travel back there you will need to
    recreate the doors with cards again.

           S                         Q: Conqueror's Respite 
    
    
    The first room you start in you will find Aladdin, who is under
    attack by Heartless, this will start your first battle.
    
    This battle is rather long, about 4 waves with the final wave
    being Fat Heartless and Agrabah Knights. Don't waste your Sleights
    off the start and keep your potions / high ally cards in reserve
    until the Fat Heartless come in. Once they spawn start using your
    friend cards, as your friends can hit Fat Heartless from the front.
    
    Once you defeat this group you will obtain the Key of Beginnings.
    
    Directly to the East of your current room is the first quest room,
    open it to go through a lore sequence to obtain the Key of
    Guidance.
    
    Go North one room, then East, then North again to access the second
    quest room. This room will take a total card count of 15, so you may
    need to use more then one to achieve it. Inside of this room will be 
    another battle, similar to the initial battle you fought at the 
    beginning of the level. This battle will have more units then the 
    first, so may take a while to beat and is harder then the boss battle.
    
    Once it is complete you will receive the Key to Truth. Head South
    3 rooms then West once to the final room with the boss.
    
    
    [7.3a]Jafar
    
    Health: 2.25 Bars (Lamp)
    
    Jafar himself is untargettable, but there is a Lamp that Iago will
    be flying around with on a random path that is targetable. Destroying
    the lamp will kill Jafar, so focus on it completely
    
    In this battle will be 6 platforms, which will raise and lower at
    random intervals. Since Iago flies at a single height he sometimes
    may jump out of reach.
    
    There are Counter Cards that will drop in this battle, when you use
    them they will cause every platform to raise all at once. While this
    may seem like it is useful it also gives Jafar a very long time to
    attack you openly. You should only use this when you are at full 
    health with a fully loaded deck, as you may take quite a bit of
    damage during the length of the Counter Card.
    
    
    Once you have defeated Jafar you will obtain a Jafar and a Genie
    Card, then you will be transported to the Conqueror's Respite.
    Save if needed and head north to exit this Floor.

    When you first enter you will be given Key of Beginnings, head
    east once then north twice. Go east once and south to the first
    quest room. You'll need both a 5 or higher and a 7 or higher,
    as well as the Key of Beginnings card. Once inside the room
    you'll receive the Key of Guidance.
    
    When you are ported out of the room head south once and east
    towards the second Quest Room. Inside of this room will be your
    first boss battle.
    
    
    [7.4a]Cloud Strife
    
    Health: 2.10
    
    Cloud Strife is a Sleight based boss, you can view his currently
    selected card and he has to reload his deck as he runs out of cards.
    
    Cloud's abilities are long drawn out attacks, so keeping high cards
    stored for breaks is a good idea. Don't waste all of your cards on
    Sleights but try to keep a Sleight of about 17 on reserve in case
    Cloud tries to unleash his Sleights, which can stun lock you and
    deal massive damage.
    
    Keep on the defensive and strike out when he tries to reload, he
    has a rather small deck and will need to replenish often. By the 
    time you run through a deck, he will be on his 3rd lvl recharge,
    so you can smash him down now.
    
    
    After defeating Cloud you will obtain the Key to Truth, head
    North 2 rooms and take the West door to enter the final room.
    This room will require a 3 or less to Synthesize and the final
    boss of Olympus Coliseum, Hades, will be inside.
    
    
    [7.4b]Hades
    
    Health: 2.5
    
    Another Sleight boss, unlike Cloud though, he doesn't
    run out of cards very fast, due to an ability that gives him 
    free reloads, so going defensive isn't the best option in 
    this fight. Group up Sleights and smash down Hades as much 
    as you can off the start of this fight.
    
    Hades casts 2 different Sleights, Firaga and Heat Wave. Both of
    these moves can deal massive amounts of damage, so keep a few
    0 cards in reserve to counter them.
    
    Once you get down to about 15 attack cards just start using
    single attacks, Hades should be quite low by that time, so
    you can afford the lesser damaging strikes.
    
    As long as you keep some 0 cards in reserve throughout the
    fight he shouldn't prove too difficult.
    
    
    Once you kill Hades you will receive both the Hades and Cloud
    cards, as well as be transported to Conqueror's Respite. Head
    North and out of this level to the next floor.

    Wonderland has special Doors inside of it, some of the doors
    will be covered in vines that you cannot kill. Somewhere in the
    level will be purple flowers, usually close to the doors covered
    in vines. Attack these flowers to kill them, which will then
    cause the vines in the room to be removed as well.
    
    You'll obtain the Key of Beginnings at the start without any
    battle, so head West then North once. Head West again and South
    into the first Quest room, you'll need an 8 or higher as well as
    the Key of Beginnings to continue.
    
    In this room you'll fight your first 'Boss' fight.
    
    
    [7.5a]Queen's Cards
    
    Health: 1 Bar each
    
    Wave 1: 3 Spade Cards
    Wave 2: 2 Heart Cards
    Wave 3: 3 Heart's & 2 Spade Cards
    
    While not really a boss, this fight can be difficult in the
    final wave, as there are quite a lot of cards at once.
    
    Spade cards use relatively low end cards (3 - 5) but Heart
    cards use higher (6-8)
    
    Try to drag out the first 2 waves as much as possible, wait
    until you have 3 of either Donald or Goofy, then use them
    together as a Sleight as soon as the final wave spawns. If
    you position yourself dead center of the fighting area you
    should be able to hit all of them with the opening move.
    
    Goofy should be able to take all of them out and Donald
    can severely cripple them, so after that Sleight ends finish
    the rest off with any Sleights you can form of your remaining
    cards.
    
    Once the 3rd Wave is dead you will receive a Card Guard card
    and the Key of Guidance.
    
    
    Head North 1 floor then East once to reach the second quest
    room. You will need a card of 1 or higher, as well as the Key
    of Guidance. Inside is just some lore and the Key to Truth, so
    no battles.
    
    You'll be ported to the start after this, head West once then
    North twice. Head West once then west again into the final
    Quest room. You'll need a Red, a Green and the Key to Truth
    card. Inside will be the final boss fight of Wonderland, 
    Trickmaster.
    
    
    [7.5b]Trickmaster
    
    Health: 3.5 Bars
    
    When you start this battle you will be on a large table, and
    Trickmaster will be in front of you, because of his height you
    will be able to attack him from this table, as well as negate
    one of his 2 attacks.
    
    Trickmaster has 2 main attacks, a ground smash when you are on
    the ground and a melee attack when you are on the table. When
    you are on the ground Trickmaster's ground smash is completely
    un-avoidable, so staying on the table will help reduce your
    damage taken.
    
    If you stay on the table for too long Trickmaster will eventually
    knock it down, causing it to lower until you use a Counter Card,
    which will spawn randomly after the table is brought down.
    
    Trickmaster is a fairly easy boss if you can keep in range to attack
    him. If you want to sacrifice your health run into melee range at
    his feet then use your attack cards, the first one will make Sora
    jump to the height to attack Trickmaster. Extra attacks after this
    will keep Sora in the air and deal massive damage to Trickmaster.
    
    Once you run low on cards you can use the table as a retreat to
    recharge your deck.
    
    
    Once Trickmaster dies you will obtain his card and be transported 
    to the Conqueror's Respite. Take the doorway at the north end to
    continue.

    You'll obtain the Key of Beginnings shortly after entering, during
    a Lore scene.
    
    From the first room head North once then East three times. You'll
    need a total card count of 20 and the Key of Beginnings. You will
    receive the Key of Guidance and the High Jump ability after 
    another Lore Scenario.
    
    Head West once and South twice, this next room requires a single
    Red Card and a card of 5 or less, as well as the Key of Guidance.
    Parasite Cage will engage you in this room.
    
    
    [7.6a]Parasite Cage
    
    Health: 4.0 Bars
    
    Parasite Cage's arena will be 4 small pedestals rotating around
    the room, with Parasite Cage standing on the edge of one of the
    sides. The rest of the floor is covered in acid, standing in
    this acid will slowly damage you as well as stunning you for
    a second. The damage can be avoided by jumping however, so the
    second you hit the ground jump and you should always avoid the
    acid damage.
    
    Parasite Cage has very weak attack cards, so you shouldn't have
    a problem overpowering it. Just keep hammering away at its
    health. If you land in the acid just jump and resume hitting him
    with combo's, if you jump fast enough you will never take damage.
    
    There are Counter Cards in this match, they will completely
    remove the acid for a short time, so if you get one use it.
    
    Kill him to obtain the Parasite Cage card and the Key to Truth.
    
    
    Head North once and West once. Go North, then East, then North
    again. You will need a 0 card in order to open this door, as
    well as the Key to Truth. Once in this room you will start the
    Monstro's Belly Brawl event.
    
    
    [7.6b]Monstro's Belly Brawl
    
    While not a boss, it does warrant a description. Monstro's
    Belly Brawl is an encounter against 20 or so Heartless, the
    goal is to either defeat all of the Heartless or fill a
    gauge located at the top of the screen to full within a
    two minute time limit.
    
    Killing a single Heartless will increase the bar by roughly
    one tenth, while the bar will decay by approximately one
    twentieth each second.
    
    
    Once you have beaten this event you will be teleported to
    the Conqueror's Respite, save if required and head through
    the doorway to the north for the next floor.

    Upon the start of this level you will be ambushed by heartless.
    It's a 2 wave fight so shouldn't be too much trouble, after
    defeating them you will receive the Key of Beginnings.
    
    Head East, then North then West again, you'll need both a 3
    and a 4 card as well as the Key of Beginnings. After a Lore
    event you will receive the Key of Guidance.
    
    Go East then North twice and East again. Head south into
    the next Quest Room, you'll need a 6 and a 7 as well as the
    Key of Guidance. Another lore scene and you will get the Key
    to Truth.
    
    Head South, then East 3 times. South is the final quest room,
    you need a red card of 3 or less and green cards totaling 30.
    
    Inside will be the boss, Oogie Boogie.
    
    
    [7.7]Oogie Boogie
    
    Health: 3.5 bars
    
    Oogie Boogie will start the fight on a high platform,
    surrounded by spikes so you cannot reach him immediately. In
    order to reach him you will need to use Counter Cards to bring
    down the spikes. Counter Cards drop from Dice that Oogie Boogie
    throws.
    
    Oogie Boogie will throw 3 Dice into the platform you are in,
    all of the die will land as the same numbers, ranging from 1 to
    6. Each face number that lands will cause a different effect:
    
    1 - Saw Blades
        3 Saw Blades will spawn and travel across the floor on
        random pathways. Jumping can negate the effect, but it
        is difficult as the 3 saw blades can take up most of the
        area at once.
    
    2 - Enemies
        3 Random enemies will spawn, engaging you.
    
    3 - ?
        Unknown, haven't seen this die roll.
    
    4 - Line Daggers
        A row of daggers will spawn on the right side of your
        platform, (If you are facing Oogie Boogie,) and trace
        across the platform to the right side, there are spaces
        in between each dagger, so it is possible to avoid them.
    
    5 - Enemies
        3 Random enemies will spawn, engaging you.
    
    6 - Heal
        Oogie Boogie will start channeling a heal on his platform.
        The heal takes roughly 5 seconds to charge and appears to
        fully heal him.
    
    All of the die rolls, minus 2 and 5 can be canceled after the
    Die fade and the ability starts. All of the die rolls will
    cancel if you hit a card break as he is throwing the Die.
    
    In order to get Card Counters to spawn you need to hit the Dice
    with an attack before they fade, Oogie Boogie will usually
    throw the dice with a 7 card, so you will need higher in order
    to both break the ability and attack the Die. Wait for the
    die to land, then hit them or else you risk them fading
    before you can strike them.
    
    Once you have the Card Counter it can be used to lower the
    spikes surrounding your platform and allow you to reach Oogie
    Boogie, as well as stun him for about 10 seconds. During this
    time you can easily smash him down without a problem. After
    the stun wears off Oogie Boogie will knock you down to your
    original platform and the cycle of Die rolls will start again.
    
    Another strategy is to wait and collect 3 Jack cards, then use
    them in a Sleight ability on Oogie Boogie once you use a Counter
    Card. If Jack hits him with a damaging ability (anything but
    Gravity) it should kill him in one shot.
    
    
    Upon killing Oogie Boogie you will receive his card, as well
    as get transported to the Conqueror's Respite. Head north to
    leave this floor.
    
    
    [7.8]Sixth Floor Exit Hall
    
    When you enter this floor you have to fight a new boss,
    Larxene.
    
    
    [7.8a]Larxene
    
    Health: 3.5 Bars
    
    Larxene is a troubling boss if you get sidelined by her
    attacks, each attack that Larxene uses stuns you for longer
    then a normal attack would, leaving you less time to put up
    a counter or dodge out of the way. There still is room to
    do this however in the fight, so being able to passively
    counter her abilities is very useful.
    
    Larxene is a Sleight based boss, so she will have to charge
    her deck eventually, don't expect to see it happen though.
    
    Stack your deck with the highest attack cards you can, 6 or
    higher minimum. Keep a few 0's in reserve, just in case. 
    Get in melee range and wail away at her, keep smashing her 
    as fast as you can to keep her stun locked.
    
    Larxene has quite a few 0 keys, so some of your attacks will
    get countered, immediately after the card is placed dodge
    roll and you should be able to completely avoid her initial
    strike.
    
    Her Sleight abilities can link up some massive damage, so
    make sure you have the 0 cards ready for them.
    
    With 2 potions and a single recharge, you should have enough
    attack cards to take her down, just keep up your attacks and
    you should be fine.
    
    
    When you defeat Larxene you will obtain another 4 world
    cards; Atlantis, Neverland, Hallow Bastion & 100 Acre Wood.

    This room will require a single red card, as well as the Key
    of Beginnings.
    
    After another Lore scene you will get the Key of Guidance. Travel
    East then North then East again to reach the second Quest room,
    You'll need a Green card as well as the Key of Guidance to enter.

    [7.9a]Ursula
    
    Health: 3.5 Bars
    Tentacles: .5 Bars (4 Tentacles total)
    
    Ursula is compromised of 2 phases, Tentacles and
    Ursula herself.
    
    Your first phase involves attacking Tentacles, 4 total.
    Once all 4 are dead you will advance to the next phase,
    but they respawn rather quickly, so make sure you can
    take them all out in quick succession.
    
    once all 4 are dead Ursula will come in close, allowing
    you to target her. She will stay in range four about 10
    seconds, so make sure you have a full deck and go all
    out on her to bring her down as much as possible.
    
    After phase 2 ends Ursula will move back out of range,
    and the 4 Tentacles will respawn and Phase one will
    start over again.
    
    In addition to this Card Counters can also drop when
    you defeat Tentacles, these Card Counters will instantly
    stun Ursula for about 5 seconds. This is best to use during
    the second phase to extend your time damaging her.
    
    
    Defeat Ursula to gain her card. You'll be teleported to the
    Conqueror's Respite, make sure to save as this next battle
    is tricky.
    
    
    [7.10]Seventh Floor Exit Hall
    
    When you enter this area you will find Riku, who will
    attack you, starting the first boss battle with him. Be
    warned that this is not an easy fight if you do not have
    experience with it, he is quite capable of mopping the
    floor with your face even at 5% health - Especially
    at 5% health *twitch*
    
    
    [7.10a]Riku V. 1
    
    Health: 5.5 Bars
    
    Riku cannot use Sleights in this battle, but you can still
    see his currently selected card and he has to recharge his
    deck as you do. He can easily mop the floor with you without
    Sleights so don't worry about it being unfair.
    
    The key to this fight is being able to keep him recoiling
    from your hits as much as possible, his blows deal massive
    damage and have about a 75% chance to stun you for 1 second.
    As Riku can attack you more then once a second, getting hit
    once can easily lead to your death.
    
    Create a new deck with Jafar and Queen's Card enemy cards,
    Stack your deck with as many high level attack cards as you
    can and at least 2 cures. add in 2 potions after that
    - You should have about 24 cards total; 18 attack, 2
    enemy, 2 heal and 2 potions - All of this should take about
    600 CP. Don't bother with 0 cards, they won't be effective
    in this battle for the CP cost.
    
    As soon as the battle starts pop Jafar and wail away at him
    with your attack cards, Riku will not be able to counter your
    attacks even with a 0 card and as long as you don't stop he
    shouldn't ever be able to get an attack in edgewise.
    
    Use your standard reload once you run out of attack cards,
    only charging one level is easily manageable at this point
    and you need the potions for when you can't break his
    cards with Jafar.
    
    Once Jafar runs out finish your attack cards again, Recharge
    with a level two charge, this is where the fight can get
    tricky. Stand at melee range on Riku and the second you see
    him lay down a card hit your dodge key (Square) and roll
    out of the way, you'll have about a half of a second to keep
    charging to get your cards back. It should take about 8 turns
    to get the full recharge, at that point pop the Queen's Card
    enemy card and attack as fast as you can, the speed of your
    attacks will keep him from being able to get attacks in edgewise.
    
    Queen's Card will last you for almost 2 full decks of attack cards,
    so pop your first potion to get an instant reload. Run these attack
    cards completely out even after Queen's Card end, then pop your
    final potion.
    
    Once you have a reloaded deck concentrate every card into Sleights,
    Strike Raid works wonders as it will stun Riku but even the standard
    3 hit combo works fine. Once you run out of attack cards use any
    friend cards that have been collected (should have about 6) to
    finish him off.
    
    If he has any health left after this kiss your ass goodbye, you
    won't last long enough to get a level 3 charge off. If you manage
    to land almost all of your end Sleights he should die from it
    however.

    The first lore scene when starting will give you both the Key
    of Beginnings and the Glide ability, (When in the air hold
    Circle to fly.) Head East once, then North and East again.
    The first door requires a 5 card and the Key of Beginnings.
    
    Inside you will get the Key of Guidance, Peter Pan will also
    join you as an ally card. Head South, then east then south
    again. This door requires a 6 card and the Key of Guidance.
    
    Another Lore scene, you will lose Peter Pan as an ally card,
    but you will gain the Key to Truth. Head North 4 rooms then
    East once. This final door requires a total card count of 30
    and the Key to Truth.
    
    Inside will be the boss fight, Captain Hook. Also note that
    Peter Pan will rejoin you as an ally card for this fight.
    
    
    [7.11a]Captain Hook
    
    Health: 4.25
    
    Captain Hook is a relatively easy boss, the trick is avoiding
    his attacks, which can hit you rather hard.
    
    Hook can use Sleights in this battle, but the Sleights are
    usually more detrimental to him then to you. His first
    Sleight is a melee stab, he will port to you and try to
    hit you a few times, then throw grenades all around him,
    causing moderate damage. There is a brief pause between the
    port and when he actually starts attacking, so use that time
    to Dodge roll out of the way. Roll again to clear the blast
    radius of his grenades.
    
    The Second sleight is more advantageous to you, Hook will move
    to a new platform and start throwing explosive barrels, these
    barrels will travel slowly towards you, and if you contact
    them they will detonate. The barrels are staggered in their
    release stages, so it is possible to dodge roll through them as
    they get near. If you can clear the barrels Hook will jump off
    the platform and into the final Barrel, exploding and stunning
    himself for a few seconds, close in and wail on him freely with
    everything you have.
    
    Peter Pan is also extremely useful against Hook in this battle, get
    3 linked together in a Sleight and use it whenever possible to deal
    massive damage to him.
    
    Once you kill Hook you will receive both his card and Tinker Bell's.
    You'll be teleported to Conqueror's Respite, so head north to
    exit the level. Save first however, because you will be facing a
    rather hard fight.
    
    
    [7.12]Eighth Floor Exit Hall
    
    On first entering the Exit Hall Riku will encounter you
    again, be ready for a good old fashioned beat down, (unfortuanetley
    you will probably be the one getting beaten down.)
    
    
    [7.12a]Riku V. 2
    
    Health: 5.5 Bars
    
    Riku is back and meaner then ever, in this fight he can
    use Sleights, and these Sleights can Obliterate you. The
    same strategy as the first Riku works fine here, the
    difference now is you will need one or two spare 0 cards
    to add into the deck, to counter his Sleights during your
    final half of the battle.
    
    -Copied from the Riku V. 1 fight, skip if you've read already-
    
    The key to this fight is being able to keep him recoiling
    from your hits as much as possible, his blows deal massive
    damage and have about a 75% chance to stun you for 1 second.
    As Riku can attack you more then once a second, getting hit
    once can easily lead to your death.
    
    Create a new deck with Jafar and Queen's Card enemy cards,
    Stack your deck with as many high level attack cards as you
    can and at least 2 cures. add in 2 potions after that
    - You should have about 24 cards total; 18 attack, 2
    enemy, 2 heal and 2 potions - All of this should take about
    600 CP. Don't bother with 0 cards, they won't be effective
    in this battle for the CP cost.
    
    As soon as the battle starts pop Jafar and wail away at him
    with your attack cards, Riku will not be able to counter your
    attacks even with a 0 card and as long as you don't stop he
    shouldn't ever be able to get an attack in edgewise.
    
    Use your standard reload once you run out of attack cards,
    only charging one level is easily manageable at this point
    and you need the potions for when you can't break his
    cards with Jafar.
    
    Once Jafar runs out finish your attack cards again, Recharge
    with a level two charge, this is where the fight can get
    tricky. Stand at melee range on Riku and the second you see
    him lay down a card hit your dodge key (Square) and roll
    out of the way, you'll have about a half of a second to keep
    charging to get your cards back. It should take about 8 turns
    to get the full recharge, at that point pop the Queen's Card
    enemy card and attack as fast as you can, the speed of your
    attacks will keep him from being able to get attacks in edgewise.
    He can counter your cards at this point though, so be wary of him
    trying to lay down combo's on you.
    
    Queen's Card will last you for almost 2 full decks of attack cards,
    so pop your first potion to get an instant reload. Run these attack
    cards completely out even after Queen's Card end, then pop your
    final potion.
    
    Once you have a reloaded deck concentrate every card into Sleights,
    Strike Raid works wonders as it will stun Riku but even the standard
    3 hit combo works fine. Once you run out of attack cards use any
    friend cards that have been collected (should have about 6) to
    finish him off.
    
    If he has any health left after this kiss your ass goodbye, you
    won't last long enough to get a level 3 charge off. If you manage
    to land almost all of your end Sleights he should die from your
    damage, however.

    After attaining the Key of Beginnings from the first lore event
    head North 4 rooms, then West once. This door will require a Red
    card and the key of Beginnings, after another Lore scene Beast
    will join you as an ally card and you'll receive the key of
    Guidance.
    
    Head South twice, then East once, then South twice more. This
    door will need an exact 9 card and the Key of Guidance. Another
    lore scene and you'll get the Key to Truth.
    
    Head North twice, then west twice. The final quest room requires
    an exact 1 card and the key to Truth. Inside will be the boss
    fight Maleficent
    
    
    [7.13a]Maleficent
    
    Health: 5.5 Bars
    
    Maleficent is a fairly easy boss, she appears as a large dragon
    with the 3 distinct abilities: a Ground slam a melee swipe and
    a flame breath. The most deadly of these are the Flame breath.
    
    Maleficent's room is a giant circular room. Maleficent will
    stand in the centre, and won't move from there, giving you ample
    room to move. You can only attack her head though, so keep her
    direction in mind when fighting.
    
    Ground slam will only affect the area around her, so just dodge
    roll away. Flame breath is a conical attack, so it will only
    affect 1/4th of the entire area. Standing in the fire will 
    obliterate your health, so stay out of it as much as possible.
    
    Maleficent uses rather high cards, 8 usually, so you'll need
    a slew of 9's or Sleights to overpower her. At random times
    in the fight you will receive Counter Cards, these will reduce
    her card attack strength to 2, allowing almost any card to over
    power her for a short while.
    
    
    Once you have finished of Maleficent you will obtain her card,
    as well as be transported to the Conqueror's Respite. Head
    north and out into Castle Oblivion.

    While not an actual level in the fact that it does not require
    cards to Synthesize doors in the level, this level still does
    need to be completed. Granted you can easily run through all
    of the rooms to the very end and skip everything in the middle,
    but you'll miss some great rewards (Megalixir) and miss all
    the fun mini-games.
    
    Each mini game listed below is listed based on when you see them
    while running through this level. It will also be explained 
    who / what to talk to to activate them.
    
    
    [7.14a]Veggie Panic
    
    Veggie Panic is offered by Rabbit and can be started in the second
    room. To spawn th event you need to head towards the third room,
    after nearly being run over by a vegetable. After that you can
    talk to Rabbit to start this Mini-game.
    
    Goal: 25 Sorted
    
    This Mini-game involves sorting between Cabbage and Pumpkins. You
    can sort them by using different key presses as the vegetables are
    about to hit / pass you.
    
    Use square to hit Cabbages to the Left
    Use Circle to hit Pumpkins to the Right
    
    Pressing the wrong button on the wrong Vegetable, or failing to hit
    the Vegetable / it hitting Sora will count as a miss. You will get
    5 misses in a game, and once you hit 0 misses the game ends.
    
    There are also 2 reaction based events, that occour randomly.
    
    The first pooh will wander out into the pathway of the vegetables,
    if a vegetable is about to hit Pooh, you can use a reaction command 
    to keyblade hit the vegetable away from pooh, adding it as a sorted
    point at the same time. If a vegetable hits pooh it will count as
    a miss.
    
    The second is a large Vegetable will roll down, this needs to be hit
    multiple times (5?) with your keyblade, (using a reaction command)
    in order to force it out of the path. The trick to this is before
    the large Vegetable will spawn, dosens of carrots will preceed it.
    These carrots cannot be hit, and must be weaved through, (there
    will be a path that you can take to get through them unharmed.)
    Hitting a carrot will count as a miss.
    
    Sort 25 Vegetables to win, the game will go indefinatley until
    you run out of misses, so after 25 just let them go by to end the
    game.
    
    
    [7.14b]Baloon Glider
    
    In the third room you will see 3 balloons tied to a log.
    Interacting with these ballons starts this game.
    
    Goal: Reach the top of the tree
    
    Circle to Float up
    
    You will start at the bottom of a giant tree, with 2 ballons.
    The goal is to float to the top of the tree, collecting as
    many honey pieces as possible while avoiding branches / bee's.
    Touching Branches / Bee's will cause a baloon to pop, once you
    run out of baloons you will fall to the ground, and the game
    will end.
    
    There are spare baloons as you climb up the tree and you can
    hold a total of 3 baloons at once.
    
    There are 500 Honey pieces total that can be collected.
    
    
    [7.14c]Tigger's Jump-A-Thon
    
    Entering the 4th room you will find Tigger bouncing on 4 stumps,
    as you come close he will jump off and talk to you. Talking to
    him will start the game.
    
    Goal: 25 jumps
    
    This is basicly a game of Simon Says. Tigger will jump along
    a set number of stumps, based on the 'round' you are on.
    
    Round 1: 3
    Round 2: 4
    Round 3: 6
    Round 4: 7
    Round 5: 8
    Round 6: 10
    
    (Rounds appear to function on a +1 / +1 / +2 gain ratio, meaning
     rounds are grouped into sets of 3, the first 2 of those sets
     increase the total count by 1 each, while the third of the
     set increases the total count by 2. After the third the set
     restarts again, at 1 then 1 then 2.)
    
    Tigger will always jump along the same path, just add more
    with each subsequent round. For example:
    
    Round 1: Circle -> Square -> Cross
    Round 2: Circle -> Square -> Cross -> Triangle
    Round 3: Circle -> Square -> Cross -> Triangle -> Circle -> Cross
    
    Land successfully 25 times to win, game end when you make 1
    mistake.
    
    
    [7.14d]Whirlwind Plunge
    
    Whirlwind Plunge is started by jumping into a well with air
    blowing up from it. The well is found in the 5th room.
    
    Goal: Reach the ground while collecting as many honey pieces as
          possible.
    
    You will start in the air, quickly falling to the ground. On your
    way down you can collect honey pieces, which will be in the form
    of a square, a circle, a cross or a traingle. Touching any side
    of the formations will cause you to grab all of the honey pieces
    in the formation, and there will usually be 6 - 8 formations
    layered above / behind eachother.
    
    In addition to the honey pieces there will be pitfalls, large tree
    trunks / pieces of wood that will try to block you. If you get hit
    by any of these you will loose hold of Pooh, while not holding on
    to Pooh you will not be able to collect honey pieces. You can
    grab hold of Pooh by traveling close to him and hitting Triangle
    when the reaction command appears on screen.
    
    There are approx 2000 honey pieces total, the game ends once you
    hit the ground.
    
    
    [7.14e]Bumble Rumble
    
    You will find Eeyore wandering around in the 5th room, beside
    him will be a large tree with an opening that will be pointed
    out during the Lore scene with him.
    
    Goal: Kill 30 Bee's
    
    When you start this event Pooh will be wandering around and will
    be attacked by swarms of Bee's. Each bee has .5 bars of health
    and will slowly attack Pooh. Each attack against Pooh will reduce
    his "Honey Level" (the bar at the top left of the screen.) If this
    bar fully depleats the game will end.
    
    You will be presented with a special deck, that has 3 different
    types of cards, the first are attack cards, they will be used
    to deal damage to Bee's an help you kill them.
    
    The second is Honey, honey is used as a heal for Pooh, replenishing
    his Honey Level.
    
    The final card is a Wind card, these cards create a large tornado,
    pushing back all Bee's from Pooh, giving you some free room to 
    breathe.
    
    Most of the attack cards you will be presented with will be rather
    low and can be broken by the bee's very easily, you will want to
    use Sleights as much as possible to attack the Bee's. The best one
    is to Sleight together a keyblade, a Honey and a Wind card. this
    will create a large Tornado of honey pots, healing Pooh while 
    dealing a large ammount of damage to all Bee's.
    
    Defeat 30 Bee's to win, and the game will end.
    
    
    [7.15]Tenth Floor Exit Hall
    
    Now that we are out of cards, we need some more. So lets
    start the next boss fight, Vexen.
    
    Before you engage this boss, you will need a specific deck, which
    will be used in all of the following boss strategies - Minus Riku.
    
    Check out my Deck section for a specific layout on the deck,
    titled Final Bosses Deck
    
    
    [7.15a]Vexen
    
    Health 6.25 Bars
    
    Vexen is a rather easy boss once you learn his abilities
    and how exactly to counter them. The first thing to know
    is that you cannot hit him directly with melee attacks,
    as his ice shield will block anything you throw at him.
    The only way to get initial damage on him is to card break
    his attacks, this will stun him and let you get in a few
    strikes. You can only get in 3 hits maximum during his
    recoil, if you try to hit him a fourth time he will either
    guard it or card break you. Since Vexen can deal massive
    amounts of damage with his melee strikes, you cannot
    afford to be hit by him. With this in mind you must play
    this fight defensively.
    
    Vexen's first attack is a standard melee combo swing, he
    will attack 3 times in rapid succession. The turning point
    in this combo is his fourth attack summons a large pillar
    of ice in front of him, causing minor frost damage. The
    reason that this is a hassle is because even if you card
    break him while he is in the middle of the 4th swing, the
    ice pillar will still form and cause you damage for touching
    it. To avoid this attack stand 5 yards away from him at all
    times, dodge roll backwards when he starts his swings.
    
    Vexen's second attack is a flying ice shard summon. He will
    stand still and channel a spell to send a piece of ice at you.
    Avoiding this ice shard is difficult, if possible put your back
    to a wall before the ice shard hits you. Once the ice shard
    is about 5 yards away dodge roll to its side. Think of it
    like positions on a clock, if the ice shard is at 12 you want
    to roll to either 10 or 2. Doing this will cause the ice shard
    to bypass you, and hopefully, smash into a wall or the ground.
    If the ice shard does not hit a structure it will keep moving,
    trying to track back and hit you. Keep dodging left and right
    to confuse it enough so that it isn't able to hit you.
    Eventually it will ground out and disappear.
    
    In addition to these 2 standard attacks Vexen can use 2 Sleights.
    The first is a useless sleight that you can easily avoid, the
    second is a lot more tricky, and can kill you if hit by it.
    
    The first is called Ice Needles. Vexen will summon ice shards
    around himself to protect him from you, then summon a chain
    of shards that slowly trace towards you. This move is easily
    avoidable by dodging to gain ground on the shard chain, as it
    moves a little bit slower then your run speed. This Sleight
    lasts about 10 seconds.
    
    His final Sleight is called Freeze and it can destroy a perfect
    attempt on him within seconds. Vexen will stand still and channel
    another spell, immediately before casting he will cross his right
    hand across his body, in a swiping motion. At the apex of his hand
    movement a large ball of ice will spawn on you, freezing you and
    making you unable to move, while causing moderate damage. Vexen
    will then teleport to you and smash the ball of ice, causing
    major damage. You can counter this in 2 ways: Either by hitting
    him with a higher card count or a 0 card, nullifying the attack.
    Or you can dodge away from the ball of ice, which is quite
    difficult and will take some practice. As Vexen begins swinging
    his hand dodge in any direction, (dodging to the right or left
    works best as you can still watch his movements without being
    blocked by your camera.) With the right timing the ball will
    summon directly behind your dodge, missing you completely Doing
    it too soon though will cause him to just freeze you in your
    dodge animation, dealing the same damage as usual.
    
    Your best time to attack is when he tries to fire his single
    ice shards, but any time you can get a counter in you can hit
    him a few times.
    
    Keep at him and after a while you will eventually bring him
    down. Also of note, there are faster ways of killing Vexen
    then playing defensively, but you will need the experience
    of dodging his attacks and staying alive for a later boss battle.
    
    
    Once you defeat him he will give you the card to Twilight Town.

    [7.16a]Vexen V. 2
    
    *If you have yet to red my first Vexen strategy guide I suggest
     you read it, as it gives detailed information about Vexen's
     initial 4 attacks, which I will build on in here
    
    Health: 7.25
    
    Vexen V. 2 functions exactly the same as the first Vexen fight,
    with 3 differences. Vexen now has enemy cards, one which will
    double his frost damage - all of his attacks. The other will
    give him a 2 bar heal once he reaches 0 health, so in essence
    you need to take out 9.25 Bars from him.
    
    The second Difference is the amount of times you can attack
    him during a recoil. Originally you could attack him 3 times
    before he counter attacks, now you can only get in 1 severely
    limiting your damage output.
    
    The final difference is a 3rd Sleight, which he will only use
    during his final 2 bars of health, this Sleight forms a large
    Ice blade for him, which he uses to attack 3 times with. It
    is possible to dodge the first 2 hits, though rather unlikely
    and completely impossible to avoid the final, which deals over
    100 damage alone. This move is literally a fight breaker if he
    can get it off.
    
    He will vocally announce that he is summoning the Ice Blade
    when he starts his Sleight. At that point you will have 5
    seconds to either break it with a 0, a higher damage Sleight
    or to hope to hell that you have enough health to survive all
    3 hits.
    
    Just like the initial Vexen fight, counter his attacks and
    deal a single hit to him each time he tries to attack. Do this
    for a whole deck then reload and do it twice more. You want to
    bring him down to 3 bars of health before you start using your
    Sleights.
    
    Once he reaches that point pop your regular potion and start
    your Sleights, work through your Sonic Blade rotation to bring
    him down the final 3 bars, then through his Auto-Life if he
    has time to activate it.
    
    
    Once you have defeated Vexen you will be transported to the
    Conqueror's Respite. Save then head north and back to Castle
    Oblivion when ready.
    
    
    [7.17]Eleventh Floor Exit Hall
    
    Your good old pal Riku is here again, apparently he doesn't
    like you all too much right now, so you'll have to fight him
    again.
    
    
    [7.17a]Riku V. 3
    
    Health: 6.25
    
    Another Riku fight, and he seems to have gotten a lot faster and
    way more pissed off. His attacks not only hit in melee but deal
    splash damage around him, so dodging is almost useless.
    
    The same strategy as before works perfectly on this guy, you'll
    want to add one or two Hi potions / megalixir's though, for the
    end of the battle, as Riku has more health in this version then
    previous. 2 potions capable of reloading all attack cards will
    trivialize his extra health.
    
    -Copied from the Riku V. 1 fight, skip if you've read already-
    
    The key to this fight is being able to keep him recoiling
    from your hits as much as possible, his blows deal massive
    damage and have about a 75% chance to stun you for 1 second.
    As Riku can attack you more then once a second, getting hit
    once can easily lead to your death.
    
    Create a new deck with Jafar and Queen's Card enemy cards,
    Stack your deck with as many high level attack cards as you
    can and at least 2 cures. add in 2 potions after that
    - You should have about 24 cards total; 18 attack, 2
    enemy, 2 heal and 2 potions - All of this should take about
    600 CP. Don't bother with 0 cards, they won't be effective
    in this battle for the CP cost.
    
    As soon as the battle starts pop Jafar and wail away at him
    with your attack cards, Riku will not be able to counter your
    attacks even with a 0 card and as long as you don't stop he
    shouldn't ever be able to get an attack in edgewise.
    
    Use your standard reload once you run out of attack cards,
    only charging one level is easily manageable at this point
    and you need the potions for when you can't break his
    cards with Jafar.
    
    Once Jafar runs out finish your attack cards again, Recharge
    with a level two charge, this is where the fight can get
    tricky. Stand at melee range on Riku and the second you see
    him lay down a card hit your dodge key (Square) and roll
    out of the way, you'll have about a half of a second to keep
    charging to get your cards back. It should take about 8 turns
    to get the full recharge, at that point pop the Queen's Card
    enemy card and attack as fast as you can, the speed of your
    attacks will keep him from being able to get attacks in edgewise.
    He can counter your cards at this point though, so be wary of him
    trying to lay down combo's on you.
    
    Queen's Card will last you for almost 2 full decks of attack cards,
    so pop your first potion to get an instant reload. Run these attack
    cards completely out even after Queen's Card end, then pop your
    final potion.
    
    Once you have a reloaded deck concentrate every card into Sleights,
    Strike Raid works wonders as it will stun Riku but even the standard
    3 hit combo works fine. Once you run out of attack cards use any
    friend cards that have been collected (should have about 6) to
    finish him off.
    
    If he has any health left after this kiss your ass goodbye, you
    won't last long enough to get a level 3 charge off. If you manage
    to land almost all of your end Sleights he should die from your
    damage, however.
    
    
    Once you have defeated Riku he will drop the Destiny Islands' world
    key. Go ahead and use it to enter the next floor.

    After you get the Key of Beginnings from the first Lore scene
    head West, then North, then East. You'll need an exact 2 and
    an exact 8 card, as well as the Key of Beginnings to enter.
    
    Another lore scene and you'll be transported to the start of
    the level with the Key of Guidance. Head West, then North 3
    times. Head East twice and into the next quest room. You'll
    need a total card count of 50 as well as the Key of Guidance
    to get in. Inside will be a boss battle, but it is very easy
    to defeat.
    
    
    [7.18a]Darkside
    
    Darkside is by far the easiest boss of the latter half of Sora's
    story. He has four main attacks that he will rotate through. Each
    of these attacks are fairly weak and can be countered easily.
    
    His first attack is a standard ground slam. He will raise his
    right hand and smash it into the ground, causing a shock wave
    to emanate and encompass the entire arena. Jumping before the
    shock wave hits you will negate this, however.
    
    His second attack is an AoE dark energy rain. He will slam his
    left hand into the ground and bring up a large energy ball. He
    will then use this ball to rain smaller energy balls all over
    the entire area, these energy balls are very hard to completely
    avoid, but for the entire cast time his attack card is present,
    meaning you can counter it any time you want. The only attack he
    uses with his left hand is this, so if you see him raise his left
    hand just counter immediately.
    
    His third attack is a summon spell. He will slam his right hand
    into the ground and create a large black pool, spawning several
    small heartless. The heartless on their own are weak and pose no
    threat whatsoever. The advantage of this move is the entire time
    that Darkside is summoning you can smash away at his hand, causing
    a good chunk of damage to him.
    
    The final attack Darkside uses is later in the fight, when he gets
    below 2 bars. He will drop to his knee's and create a large energy
    ball in his chest, which will fire homing missiles at you. Dodging
    the missiles is quite difficult, so just break his card when you
    see him drop to his knees.
    
    You can target Darkside in 3 locations, both of his hands or his
    head. Normally you cannot target his head as his height prevents
    you from reaching it, so just focus on his hands. Jump in the air
    then do a single attack, then drop to the ground. Multiple attacks
    will usually miss, so a single one is the most advisable. Sleights
    are useless here, as his hand is too far in the air for them to
    reliably hit.
    
    Counter Cards can drop in this fight from the heartless that spawn
    from Darkside's third attack. These Counter Cards will stun Darkside
    and cause a large amount of rocks to raise out of the ground,
    giving you a jagged path to reach Darkside's head. Attacking his
    head deals extra damage, but it is not normally worth it, as the
    time taken to reach his head and the fact that after 2 swings you
    will usually fall off make it more useful to just hit his arms.
    
    Keep smashing him down with melee attacks and he'll fall.
    
    
    You'll receive the Darkside enemy card and be transported to the
    Conqueror's Respite. Head north to leave this floor, make sure
    that you save though, the next fights aren't easy.
    
    
    [7.19]Twelfth Floor Exit Hall
    
    You'll fight 2 Boss battles in here, with no save point in
    between you'll have to take them both down.
    
    
    [7.19a]Riku V. 4
    
    Health: 7.25
    
    Another Riku fight, this time he is radiating dark energy and has a 
    lot more health then normal. His attacks not only hit in melee but 
    deal splash damage around him, so dodging is almost useless.
    
    The same strategy as before works perfectly on this guy, you'll
    want to add one or two Hi potions / megalixir's though, for the
    end of the battle, as Riku has more health in this version then
    previous. 2 potions capable of reloading all attack cards will
    trivialize his extra health.
    
    Oh and one thing of note, no friend cards in this fight.
    
    -Copied from the Riku V. 1 fight, skip if you've read already-
    
    The key to this fight is being able to keep him recoiling
    from your hits as much as possible, his blows deal massive
    damage and have about a 75% chance to stun you for 1 second.
    As Riku can attack you more then once a second, getting hit
    once can easily lead to your death.

    - You should have about 24 cards total; 18 attack, 2
    enemy, 2 heal and 2 potions - All of this should take about

    in this battle for the CP cost.
    
    As soon as the battle starts pop Jafar and wail away at him
    with your attack cards, Riku will not be able to counter your
    attacks even with a 0 card and as long as you don't stop he
    shouldn't ever be able to get an attack in edgewise.
    
    Use your standard reload once you run out of attack cards,
    only charging one level is easily manageable at this point
    and you need the potions for when you can't break his
    cards with Jafar.
    
    Once Jafar runs out finish your attack cards again, Recharge
    with a level two charge, this is where the fight can get

    attacks will keep him from being able to get attacks in edgewise.
    He can counter your cards at this point though, so be wary of him
    trying to lay down combo's on you.
    
    Queen's Card will last you for almost 2 full decks of attack cards,
    so pop your first potion to get an instant reload. Run these attack
    cards completely out even after Queen's Card end, then pop your
    final potion.
    
    Once you have a reloaded deck concentrate every card into Sleights,
    Strike Raid works wonders as it will stun Riku but even the standard
    3 hit combo works fine. Once you run out of attack cards use any
    friend cards that have been collected (should have about 6) to
    finish him off.
    
    If he has any health left after this kiss your ass goodbye, you
    won't last long enough to get a level 3 charge off. If you manage
    to land almost all of your end Sleights he should die from your
    damage, however.
    
    
    Defeating Riku will drop his enemy card for you. You'll have a
    brief relapse to change your deck if need be before the next battle.
    Talk to Riku when you are ready.
    
    
    [7.19b]Larxene V. 2
    
    Health: 7.75
    
    Larxene is back, and she's a little pissed off now. Her health
    has been increased, as well as her damage output. The overall
    layout of the fight and her abilities haven't changed though.
    
    Since she now has increased damage, and could always stun you
    briefly with her lightning attacks, it is imperative that you
    do not let her get attacks in. Immediately at the start of the
    fight unleash your Sleights and don't stop. You should have
    enough to finish her off completely, but if you run short on
    your final reload try to draw it out with single attacks.
    
    You'll also be receiving friend cards throughout the fight,
    don't use Donald because he's too stupid to not use lightning
    on her, healing her a lot. Use goofy though, as he can deal out
    a ton of damage with his Lvl. 3 ability.
    
    
    Defeat Larxene to obtain her enemy card. Head up to the 13th
    floor and into the final Level, which does not need a card to
    initially Synthesize.

    Axel is back again, and he's recieved quite a significant boost.
    In addition to his normal fire based abilities he has recieved
    the ability to warp around the room. He is considerably more agile
    and difficult to hit with standard melee attacks. He also has a
    large damage boost, while nothing rivaling the damage output per
    attack that other bosses can achieve.
    
    Axel is by far one of the easiest end game bosses to defeat, (next
    to Darkside,) his problem relies in the ability to get him to stand
    still long enough to actually hit him.
    
    Concentrate on your Sonic Blade Sleights, as long as the first hit
    lands he won't be able to warp during the rest of the attack, so
    you can rack up some easy damage.
    
    
    Defeating Axel will provide you with Axel's enemy card.
    
    After you leave the room, head East, then North, then East twice.
    You'll need to head East again once more, but you will want to
    create a Moment's Reprise room to save in, as the next boss can
    kill you very quickly if something goes wrong. Synthesize a save
    room if you can then proceed North, (there will be an open door
    this time, so no need to Synthesize it,) to the next boss.
    
    
    [7.20b]Marluxia
    
    Health: 8.75
    
    While Marluxia is not a very agile boss, he can output huge
    portions of damage with his Scythe, getting hit by even a melee
    attack can obliterate you.
    
    Marluxia's attacks are generally melee based, so keeping your
    distance and waiting until he attacks to break and then
    counter-attack is your best way to go.
    
    His Sleights all use his Scythe, but they are abilities you
    cannot avoid by dodging, (Simmilar to Vexen's Ice Blade ability)
    Countering these attacks are the only way to go.
    
    Again, focus in on Sonic Blade Sleights, you want to keep Marluxia
    unable to counterattack for as long as possible, stay at least
    10 yards away from him at all times to help against his basic
    cards.
    
    
    Once you have defeated Marluxia you will recieve his enemy card.
    You will also be presented with a save point in this room, so save
    again, (this is the point of no return spot, {once you enter the 
    next room, you can't retrun.} )
    
    When you are ready, head North into the final room, and The Final
    Battle.
    
    
    [7.21]The Final Battle
    
    The Final Battle consists of 2 battles, one after another with no
    rest / save spots in between. This means the deck you take into the
    first battle is the one you must use on the second. The Final Bosses
    Deck works fine for these 2 battles, though with limited use during
    the first. Since the second battle is harder then the first it is
    more advisable to gear for the second.
    
    
    [7.21a]Marluxia V. 2
    
    Health: 1.75 x2 (Arms)
    Health: 6.5 (Body)
    
    At the beginning of this battle, Marluxia can rip your character
    to shreds. He stands on a giant flying machine, equipped with 2
    large Scythes for arms and a body capable of firing large energy
    balls at you.
    
    Initially all 3 targets, (both arms and the body) can all attack
    you. The arms can not only melee, but can send out large shockwaves
    that encompass parts of the battle field and are hard to avoid.
    
    Taking down the arms is your first priority and will make the rest
    of the battle much easier. Jump into the air beside an arm and
    strike it with melee attacks, as many as you can pull off before
    landing on the ground. If you keep your cards above 7 Marluxia
    should have a rather hard time trying to counter your attacks.
    
    Each arm should take about 10 shots and once both are dead you
    can move to the body.
    
    The body uses energy attacks, and when not defended by the arms
    poses very little threat in terms of damage output. The body
    does 2 main attacks, the first is a quick firing energy ball
    and the second is a longer, channeled energy blast. The first
    attack does not pose much problems, as it is generally used with a
    lower level card and thus can be countered easily. The second
    attack uses higher level cards to cast, but as an advantage has
    a long cast time and a cutscene when he tries to use it, giving
    you ample time to counter it with a higher card / 0 or a Sleight.
    
    As the body gets weaker it will start to fly around more and more,
    trying to evade your attacks, you will have to wait for it to
    start an attack, then counter it in order to stop it from moving
    around for a short while.
    
    Because of Marluxia's machine being able to fly, Sonic Blade will
    not work during this fight, stick to single attacks and only
    group together Sleights for use on breaking a large attack.
    
    
    Defeating Marluxia will cause the second battle to start, you
    will refresh your deck, (all cards will be restored / counter
    reset,) for the next battle as well.
    
    
    [7.21b]Marluxia V. 3
    
    Health: 9.75
    
    Marluxia will summon a large avatar to attack you in this battle.
    Your target will be Marluxia though, who remains stationary for
    the entire battle, giving you free rain to attack him.
    
    The Avatar has 6 attacks, 4 are Sleight and the other 2 are
    basic attacks.
    
    His first attack is a melee strike similar to the ones that
    the arm blades in Marluxia V. 2 use. It will cause a shockwave
    and attacks along either the length of the battle area or
    intersects a portion of it and goes left to right.
    
    His second attack will summon 3 Rose petals. These petals
    will rotate around Sora, and occasionally try to shoot Sora
    with small energy bullets. The bullets cause low damage and are
    more of an annoyance then anything else. The petals can be killed
    as each has .25 bars of health, but are usually not even worth
    the effort.
    
    In addition to those 2 attacks Marluxia can deal 4 different
    Sleight attacks. The first of these is a wind attack, while
    it does not deal any damage to you it will push you to the
    other end of the area, cutting down on your time to attack
    Marluxia.
    
    The second Sleight will summon about 6 Rose petals into the
    air. These petals will each summon small lasers, all of which
    will attack you at once. This ability deals moderate damage
    as well as stunning your briefly.
    
    The third Sleight is a bit more sinister. A large energy
    beam will hit you, this causes no damage but will make you
    lose all of your cards. The lost cards will scatter around
    the battle arena, and you will need to pick them up in order
    to be able to use them. After the Sleight Marluxia will pause
    for about 5 seconds, giving you a small edge to collect
    back as many cards as you can.
    
    The final Sleight is called Doom. Marluxia will trap you in
    dark energy and start a counter, that ticks from 9 to 0. The
    ability is not counterable, in order to defeat it you need to
    do a card duel against 5 cards that Marluxia will pick. Each
    of these cards needs to be beaten by a card you posess before
    the counter reaches 0 to break this attack. During the Sleight
    you can reload, so if you run out of cards you can gain more.
    
    Whenever you have an opening, close into Marluxia and keep
    using Sonic Blade. Most of Marluxia's Sleights are low card
    counts, so your Sonic Blade can break over most of them.
    
    Bring his health to 0 to finally defeat Marluxia and complete
    the game.
    
    
    The end lore scene will run, followed by the credits. At the
    end of the credits you will be asked to save, saving at this
    point gives you clear game status, this lets you access Theatre
    mode and start the second mode of the game, Reverse / Rebirth.
    In addition this save game data will let you reload Sora's
    game just before engaging in the Final Battle, allowing
    you to backtrack and redo previous levels.
    
    
    Congratulations, you have finished Sora's Story.
    
    *End of Sora's Walkthrough*
    
    
    [8]Sora's Battle Decks
    
    Here is a detailed list of cards to assemble in decks for
    certain situations. Currently there is only one for the
    final boss battles, as having specialized decks for them
    will make the fights easier.
    
    
    [8.1]Final Bosses Deck
    
    6x Assorted Keyblade Cards (Value of 8)
    9x Assorted Keyblade Cards (Value of 7)
    2x Standard Keyblade cards (Value of 0) for counters
    1x Cure (Value of 6 at least)
    1x Hi-Potion (any Value)
    1x Cure (Value of 6 at least)
    1x Megalixir (any Value)
    1x Cure (Value of 6 at least)
    1x Potion (any Value)
    1x Maleficent (optional)
    
    Total CP Required: 700 (625 without Maleficent)
    
    Deck should be assembled as layed out: 8 Card Counts first, then
    7's, then 0's, etc.
    
    The point of this deck is based around the Sleight Sonic Blade,
    which is attained as the 6th level based Sleight (available at
    level 28) This Sleight is done by having 3 different Keyblade
    cards totaling between 20 and 23.
    
    Start any fight by using the Maleficent card if you have it.
    After that page to the last 8 card you have, Sleight that
    together with 2 7's and unleash it. Keep grouping Sleights
    together, using the 8's first and then filling with 7's.
    After you get 4 Sleights in you'll have 2 8's and a single
    7 left over, Sleight all of those together to do a final.
    
    Depending on the fight you can choose one of 2 different paths,
    you can either draw out your deck length by reloading and
    attacking with the 9 7's that you will have left, getting another
    3 Sleights in.
    
    If you choose to reload or not, when ready Sleight a Hi-Potion
    with a single cure card, then use it (press both L1 and R1 to use
    a 2 card Sleight,) during an enemies attack that you can break
    with the combined value. They will recoil causing your potion
    to go off 100% of the time, they might break your cure but
    the cure aspect is a moot point to increase the card value of
    the potions.
    
    Once your deck is fully reloaded with a Hi-potion repeat the
    previous steps of Sleighting together everything you have, Reload
    again if necessary to prolong, then Sleight together your
    Megalixir and another cure during the enemies attack.
    
    *optional step to increase life span of deck*
    
    Take all of your reloaded cards and use standard attacks, this
    is where your Maleficent enemy card will come into affect,
    increasing the damage of all of your attacks significantly.
    Once you run out of cards Sleight your final potion and 2 Cures,
    which will have been reloaded with your Megalixir This will
    reload your spent cards and create a cura, healing you for any
    damage incurred during using regular attacks.
    
    
    With your final rotation, use Sleights again until you run out.
    Reload if necessary but as long as most of your Sleights hit
    almost nothing will survive.
    
    Your 0 keys are meant for Sleights that the opponent uses
    that total higher then 20, as your Sonic Blade Sleights will
    either cancel each other out or fail, negating a high amount
    of damage you can deal.
