I finished it with both characters in the lv 43-54 range. i had 1 balloonga, 2 baloonras, 3 curagas, and then a firaga and blizzaga on Sora and 2 dark firagas on Riku. Just have the strongest magic keyblade you have and make sure you have superglide and Counter Rush on Sora (superglide away from the wall jump thing and counter rush his punch spams. With Riku, have Dark Roll for the extra invincibility and distance and equip Dark Barrier so you can block almost any attack and counter it when needed. The fight itself isnt hard, its just about focusing and enduring long enough =/
I beat him with Riku at level 51, with the Unbound Keyblade, and Dark Break, Dark Firaga, Dark Splicer, Dark Aura, and two Curagas. For action commands, Dark...everything. I went a little nuts with the darkness-related abilities in this game because you seldom get to use them in this series. It was surprisingly easy battle, the only thing to really watch out for is his attack in which he climbs a building and drops down on you, then bounces. It does enormous damage and often disables one of your commands. I've never figured out a consistantly effective method for evading it, I'm afraid.
