 KH Status
- Kingdom Hearts Final Mix began September 12, one day earlier than planned, and ended November 10
It's part of the wiki's Let's Play, and will contain commentary by myself (WARNING: Course language). Anyone who'd like to be a guest in my LP is welcomed, but a Skype account is required.
Due to complications, the liveplay has been cancelled, but I'm still recording the gameplay. UPDATE: there's been an error with recording the LP (and this is not the first time), so expect me to do another round soon.
Due to my goal to gain as much trophies as possible, the party will be trained to level 100 (mostly in Olympus Coliseum, Halloween Town and Hollow Bastion).
As of November 10, trophy completion is at 86%, all Cups completed, all Gummi Ship routes cleared, all blueprints collected and all bonus bosses defeated; just need to get the trophies for Beginner and Proud Modes, plus Unchanging, to get the Platinum trophy. Gameplay was in rotation with the Ratchet & Clank HD remasters (the trilogy and Deadlocked).
There are currently no plans to play Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories until the Japanese release date for 2.5 is confirmed.
 KHII Status
||Kingdom Hearts II
|Previous Time of Gameplay
|Current Guest Character
|Highest Hits with Limits
Fa Mulan: 0
Jack Sparrow: 0
Jack Skellington: 0
Chicken Little: 0
Peter Pan: 0
- KHII will begin at an uncertain time in the near future
Not really used to playing PS2 games now, and I'm too inpatient for the HD remaster. I won't start this game until the Japanese release date for 2.5 is confirmed.
 BbS Status
- BbS (Ventus) was started November 17.
Just an unplanned filler that I intend to finish before Christmas. This will be the last time I play as Ventus on the PSP.
 DDD Status
- DDD will begin December 31
Well, I want to help with the walkthroughs, and I don't want to play KHII until it's on the PS3. But I seem to love this game to death (don't ask why), and with a whole month of summer activities before the children return to school means a lot of places to visit with the Dream Eaters. I just hope that the summer heat will not be as bad as 2009, for an understandable reason.
Dream Eaters and trophies will be retained; game will be done on Proud Mode.
- Sora's Team
- Riku's Team
Like with Kingdom Hearts II, should Sora or Riku be in The Grid, their images will change; if only one of them is in there, both images will change, regardless.
 Other Game Status
Gameplay for the Ratchet & Clank will begin upon Australian release of Deadlocked/Gladiator. Only the canon games will be played.
- Ratchet & Clank: July 6 - July 9
- Ratchet & Clank: Going Commando: July 10 - July 12

 Tips and Gags
Please note that the following content is a high spoiler zone; if you have not played any of the following games, and don't want to know the story, please turn away now.
What do you think guys? Sora's Meow Wow becoming the KH series mascot like Ash's Pikachu
for the Pokémon
- Gag: Most worlds are quite huge, and it's possible that the heroes have only seen a tiny portion of that world. It's also said some people have found ways to travel to other places, such as Genie and Santa Claus. There has yet to be proof that the world boundaries are on land.
- Gag: In Halloween Town, Sora has far more voiced quotes in KHII than in the first game. In KH1, he only has four voiced lines, during the first half of the visit, then remains as silent as Red. Neither Donald or Goofy speak at all in voiced cutscenes during the visit.
- Gag: Out of all world-based party members in the series (excluding main characters), the only ones who are aware of other worlds are Aladdin, Genie, Ariel, Beast and Simba. While Tron does know that there is a world outside his computer world, it's unknown if he knew about any other world (due to his world being Ansem's Computer). It's also currently unknown if he is aware that he is a copy of Rinzler
- Gag: Many females in the series, especially Megara and the Princesses of Heart, are portrayed as damsels in distress, which is quite controversial. Even Mulan herself was a damsel in distress at one point, despite being a party member. Noticeable exceptions (excluding playable characters and villains) are Selphie, Yuffie, Aerith, Olette, Fuu, Mrs. Potts, Cirrus*, Tifa, Kanga, the Grand Councilwoman, Rhyme and the Blue Fairy.
- Only a few "damsels in distress" have been shown in combat: Kairi (Keyblade wealder; rumoured to be playable in KHIII), Ariel (party member in KH1), Mulan (party member in KHII), Belle (elbowed Xaldin in self-defense), Minnie (ally during the Heartless invasion in Disney Castle), Nala (tackled Scar to protect Sora), Cinderella (D-Link; also owns Attack Commands), Snow White (D-Link) and Quorra (attacked Rinzler to protect Sora).
- Gag: There are many symbols around the series. I'll write more later.
- Gag: Space Paranoids and Symphony of Sorcery are the only two worlds in the series without any female characters. However, the DTD computer voice in the former uses a female voice.
- Gag: Even though most films with a KH world have sequels or spinoffs, only two have been adapted within the Kingdom Hearts series: The Return of Jafar and Tron: Legacy.
- Gag: Several characters have broken the fourth wall. In at least one case, it can be difficult to point out.
- Donald Duck: Pulled camera towards himself during his meeting with Aerith. (KH1 game)
- Genie: "I can even go to the other side of this page!" (CoM manga)
- Mushu: Pulls out KH1 manga, complaining that he's been cut out (KHII manga)
- Hades: Looks at camera when he says "...and I know just the warrior" (KHII game)
- Tron: "Sora, Donald, Goofy, and all the users out there. Thank you." (KHII game; hard to point out)
- Gag: (Sora to his friends: "We can't just go around knocking kings off their thrones...") You should see how many rulers were de-throned because of them (or their allies):
- Jafar: Directly (Took control of Agrabah while in search of Jasmine)
- Ursula: Directly (Twice)
- Maleficent: Indirectly (despite two battles with her, it was "Riku" who caused her death)
- Shan-Yu: Directly (Might not count, as his attempt to get the throne failed because of Donald Duck spotting him)
- Scar: Indirectly (Simba defeated him alone. Scar, however, became a Heartless, forcing the party to join him in battle)
- Master Control Program: Directly (Derezzed along with Sark due to the HBRC's teamwork)
- Grimhilde: Indirectly (Chased by Dwarfs, killed by nature. Nothing to do with the main party, though...)
- Frollo: Indirectly (Not really a ruler; killed by molten copper after falling)
- CLU: Indirectly (Absorbed by Kevin Flynn in front of Riku; both die in the resulting explosion)
 Playing in a Car
A few tips on playing KH games while in a moving car. Make sure you're wearing earphones at all times, especially if you're in the country and are traveling at more than 50mph. Always play in a shade; the sun can really reduce your visibility. Due to the movement, fighting and doing certain mini-games is harder. Trust me: it took me three tries to complete Ice Cream Beat in the main storyline (as Ventus) in BbS. NEVER play near if there is an open window; if you lose your console (by accidently throwing it, dropping it, or having a younger sibling/cousin through it out), chances are, it'll be destroyed before you can pick it up. (Trust me; I lost my Game Boy Color this way, along with a copy of Pokémon Blue)
If your family/friends decideds to do a stop, it's worth to stop playing for a little while. Simpally switch off the game (if you're on BbS) or close the (3)DS (if you're playing Days, Re:Coded or DDD) and you can resume where you left instantly. Hide your handheld in the car to keep it safe. (Though I took my PSP with me when my dad, grandmother and I decided to have lunch in a town on the way home; I kept it in my bag, though).
- Gag: In Halloween Town, the two snakes that are biting each other's tails (Hope and Despair) appear to be a reference to The Neverending Story, as a talisman, known famously as AURYN, shows two snakes biting each other's tails.
- Tip: In the Awakening, each Dusk will grant you 6 EXP each. In the area between the place with a Save Point and the boss, there are ten Dusks at a time (meaning: 6 x 10 = 60). Use this until Roxas is at least on level 5.
- Gag: There are 14 Vivis that are fought. A 15th one appears, but it does not fight Roxas.
- Tip: The easiest way to get 2,000 Munny is by the Mail run. My best record is 7.86 seconds.
- Gag: Sora has a one-handed pose (which is only shown in some cutscenes). I'll keep track of when he uses it.
- 1: Twilight Town: When the Nobodies are fought at the station before King Mickey appears the first time.
- 2: Yen Sid's Tower: Just before fighting the Heartless sent by Pete.
- 3: Hollow Bastion: Just before fighting the Nobodies alongside Leon.
- 4: Space Paranoids: Just before the Solar Sailor battle.
- Gag: 16 Rapid Thrusters charge down the mountain alongside Shan Yu before they are hit by the avalanche.
16 Rapid Thrusters were present with Shan-Yu
just before they were hit by the avalanche.
- Gag: It appears Pete thought Hades was going to revive Maleficent, due to the line "Mother of all bad guys" (Pete to Hades: "You don't say...").
- Gag: When Hades mentioned that Zeus locked up the underdrome tight, Pete said "D'oh".
- Gag: The Moogle in Timeless River is the only one in the game with a form change. Somehow, the Moogles in Halloween Town and Space Paranoids does not have different forms, even though the Heartless in both worlds chance form as well.
The Moogle in Timeless River
is the only Moogle with a different form.
- Gag: Timeless River is set sometime (presumably around 100 years) before the events of KHII. Ironically, it's one of the most modern worlds in the series, as many worlds are set even further in the past (some even before Christ). Only Halloween Town, Space Paranoids (in some ways), Deep Space and The Grid are set after 1928, being set in 1993, 1982, 2002 and 2010, respectively. (If one counts the Timon and Pumbaa TV series as canon, then the Pride Lands would also count, since it would be set in 1994).
- Tip: If you manage to stun Present Pete during the second battle with him, Past Pete will laugh at him as long as Present Pete is not attacked by Sora.
- Gag: Donald Duck to Past Pete - "Yeah, well, just don't make a habit out of it!" However, despite this, Present Pete seems to be worse than ever, and was quite happy when both Barbossa and Scar were planning on killing the trio.
- Gag: Sora also appears to have forgotten Ariel, as well as how to swim. (Sora to Ariel: "Hi there!")
- Gag: When Genie returns from his trip, during the scene where he mistakes Pete for Aladdin, he says "Oh, the humanity". This is a reference to Herbert Morrison's infamous report on the Hindenburg disaster, which happened in New Jersey, 1937.
- Gag: At one point, Jack Skellington says "Santa Claus".
- Gag: Maleficent is the only Disney antagonist to refer to Sora and his friends by name. However, the only times she does that is during the first trip to Halloween Town in KHII.
- This is also true in BbS, where she, again, refers to the protagonists by name; this time, in front of Ventus and Aqua after being defeated by the former.
- Gag: Donald was only on the ground twice in the Pride Lands (when Sora mentioned on knocking kings off their thrones, and when they bowed down to Simba during the second visit).
- Gag: How did Goofy get across the ridge? Sora was able to leap over (thanks to Nala teaching him how) and it's assumed Donald flew across.
- Gag: According to Pete, Scar became a Heartless due to Anger and Jealousy. It's assumed Lady Tremaine and her daughters also became Heartless for the same reason 11 years ago, since Aqua said that the darkness in their hearts overtook them.
- Gag: If you look over the cliff during the battle with Scar, you can see that the world is falling into darkness (again). Is it even possible to destroy a world when the Door to Darkness has already been closed and locked?
- Gag: I wonder why Stitch is living in Hollow Bastion, when his (new) world has already been restored. There is a chance that he never met Lilo and traveled all over the galaxy, making new friends, learning much about the good stuff, and possibly got his name from somebody. It's already been proven that ship's built under the command of the Grand Councilwoman can travel through space, as shown with Terra and Ventus.
- As his world didn't appear in Dream Drop Distance, who knows why he's in RG.
- Gag: It appears Goofy was telling the truth during the Light Cycle sequence, since he didn't appear to touch the terminal at all.
- Gag: If you look closely, you can see a Hidden Mickey just as Sora, Donald and Goofy are returned to the Pit Cell.
- Gag: Space Paranoids is one of only two worlds where the antagonist appears first, followed by supporting characters, then the main character. The other world is Port Royal.
- Also, both are based on live-action films, and the party member for both worlds die in a sequel: Captain Jack Sparrow was lost to Davy Jones' Locker (but later rescued), while Tron (also known as Rinzler) was presumed to have drowned after using a Kamikaze move on CLU's airship and falling into the Sea of Simulation below. (His fate remains disrupted as of July 2013, but it's most likely he perished)
- Gag: Sora was shown to be upset during the password sequence. After Donald and Goofy said the names for Belle, Snow White, Aurora, Alice, Jasmine, Cinderella, Sora was shown to be looking down, before mentioning Kairi (Tron: "Kairi. Got it!")
- Gag: Based on what Tron said before returning to Hollow Bastion after defeating the Hostile Program, it might be possible for programs to leave their computer worlds; this was later confirmed with Quorra.
- Gag: Donald and Goofy express signs of two of the Deadly Sins following the defeat of the Storm Rider; Donald with Greed, Goofy with Gluttony. We already know about the former's fault thanks to Port Royal and Agrabah, but this is (currently) the darkest thing we ever see the latter do.
- Gag: How did the Beast change back into his purple cape? It was only one small battle, y'know!
- Gag: Some people wonder if the Ship Graveyard is based on the one that appeared in At World's End. I doubt that, as nobody seems to live there, and it's assumed Luxord send the undead pirates there himself to stop us (in case we survived). Not only that, the second film was not even released when the game came out in Japan.
- Gag: The star images of Sora, Donald and Goofy are actually their official renders for the game.
- Gag: For some reason, no one from Organization XIII has bothered to show his face in Halloween Town or the Pride Lands. Xigbar, Xaldin, Demyx and Luxord have all appeared in The Land of Dragons, Beast's Castle, Olympus Coliseum and Port Royal, respectively, while an unknown member (presumably Luxord) appeared in Agrabah (as mentioned by the Peddler).
- Gag: In some scenes in Halloween Town (PAL version only), you can clearly see Sora's covered eye. This happens when he said "Huh? What fellows?" (during the first visit), and later on, just before he said "But, you'd thought you'd hold onto the suit" (during the second visit). In both the PAL and NTSC versions, following his famous daydream with Kairi, he looks up at the sky and his eye is exposed again.
- Tip: I was able to crack the mystery of the Rapid Thruster battle at the Pride Lands: there are 226 of them! This means: 56 X 226 = 12,656 EXP!
- Gag: Merlin is the only character outside the party to have connection with all three worlds-within-a-world (100 Acre Wood, Timeless River and Space Paranoids): he found the book that contains the 100 Acre Wood, he assigned Sora, Donald and Goofy on their mission in Timeless River, and he and Cid worked together (by force) to create an MCP Eradication Program (also known as a "loony wizard special") for Tron.
- Gag: For some reason, Tron was never given the "!" during the second trip, since he is needed for the MCP battle. The party members who got this mark were Mulan (as Ping), Auron, Captain Jack Sparrow and Simba, though only the first and third of these party members for was needed for certain battles.
- Gag: "Sora, Donald, Goofy, and all the users out there. Thank you." Anyone notice Tron's line might be breaking the fourth wall?
- Gag: If you talk to Kairi at the Proof of Existence after killing Saïx, she'll mention that she wants to fight as well as Sora and Riku, since they should not be the only ones to get hurt in battle.
 Synthesis T/G
- Tip: Frost Stones can only be obtained in Timeless River. If you don't want to return after defeating Pete, try to obtain at least twelve Frost Stones. The best way is to kill all the Heartless in Mickey's House, then fight the Hot Rods and Aeroplanes in the Scene of the Fire. After killing all the Heartless there, head back to Cornerstone Hill through Mickey's House, then head to where you fought Past Pete, and return to CH. Go through Mickey's House again, and head back to the SotF, and the Heartless there will respawn. Repeat until your stockpile is at 25, which will enable you to purchase the stones in the shop.
- If you manage to pick the Dream Sword as Roxas, and then train Sora to level 41 after he wakes up, you'll obtain Lucky Lucky. However, reaching lv. 41 in TR is not easy, so it's easier to use this route.
- Tip: There is only one Moogle Shop in the Pride Lands, and it is at the Oasis. During the second visit, it cannot be accessed at all, since by time you reach the Oasis, a cutscene will begin, and you will be automatically taken back to Pride Rock, with the route blocked off by the Groundshaker.
- Gag: Demyx might have been based on David Bowie; he resembles the singer, dreams of becoming a rock star (like Bowie) and even states a quote ("Dance Water, dance!") which is similar to one of Bowie's songs (Dance Magic, Dance, from the film Labyrinth). Heck, see for yourself.
- According to that website, lots of characters actually resemble Bowie. Such examples include Castor, Blanka, even Zangoose.
- Gag: If you look into the ballroom before heading into the side passage (as Terra), you can see Cinderella and Prince Charming dancing.
- Gag: It's assumed that the Tremaine Trio were turned into Heartless*, since Aqua said that their darkness overtook them. According to Pete, Anger and Jealousy can turn one into a Heartless, as proven with Scar eleven years later.
- Tip: If you play on the Command Board while in a world, the Prize Pods will respawn after the game.
- Gag: On the select option for the Command Board, if you take a look at Aqua, she will break the fourth wall by looking at the camera and wave to the player.
- Gag: Another reference to the Number 13: In the dungeon in the Dwarf Woodlands, you have 13 seconds to reach caged areas (during the second run). If you are playing as Terra, then you will be able to reach some Prize Pods.
- Gag: People always wonder why Lea and Isa broke into Hollow Bastion, only to be caught and thrown out by Dilan. One reason could be because there may be treasure. Another because they want to steal some records from Ansem the Wise to make it public. We may never know...
- Gag: For some reason, a spaceship can travel through space, despite the walls between worlds, and the worlds between being forbidden pathways. Maybe the ship that's Deep Space has some functions that can allow it's crew to visit other worlds?
- Tip: The Blasters in Deep Space will not attack Aqua, so there is no need to worry about them.
- Gag: Hades called Aqua "a little girl, a little lassy and a little bluebird". The first two are possible insults to her gender, and the latter towards her hair and clothing.
- Gag: How did Terra get into the ship? And why would Gantu throw him in jail when he was unconscious and possibly injured
- Gag: Since when did Hook gain control of the Unversed? He sent some to attack Ventus after kidnapping Tinker Bell. Well, maybe he (along with the Tremaines) met Vanitas...
- Gag: A lot of stuff in Dream Drop Distance appears to make references to other Japanese franchices, namely Pokémon.
- Dream Eater is the name of a Psychic-type move in the Pokémon series. In the KH series, it is the name of the creatures that both serve as fightable enemies and serve as party members. A difference from the Pokémon series here is that the "trainers" (Sora and Riku, in this case) fight alongside the "Pokémon".
- The Necho Cat (and, by extension, Frootz Cat) appears to be a combination of two Pokémon: Glameow and Purrloin.
- The Sudo Neku partly resembles Snivy, the Grass-type starter of Unova.
- The Dual Disc's name could be a reference to Yu-Gi-Oh, as the original series rival invented a device that allows players to duel on the streets. This device is also called a Duel Disc.
"Do I look like a Purrloin? Or a Glameow?"
- Gag: A Necho Cat can be an active party member for Riku. As I said earlier, the Dream Eater resembles Purrloin, and Riku shares his Japanese voice actor with Cilan, who hates Purrloin. It's a surprise that Riku can handle cats while Cilan cannot.
- Gag: The Court of Miracles actually contains the gallows that Quasimodo and Phoebus were nearly hanged on in the film.
- Gag: The way Sora enters The Grid and checks out his armor mimics how he entered Space Paranoids and checked out his original armor (by waking up, looking around and looking at his hands and under his arm).
- Gag: Despite what Yen Sid said about old allies within the dream world not regonising Sora or Riku, at least one person does regonise Sora (but only for a few minutes).
- Gag: I wonder how Sora was able to survive being underwater in Prankster's Paradise without diving equipment or becoming a Merman. Maybe the Blue Fairy casted a spell on him to temporarily prevent drowning, since Sora mentioned in an earier game that he could drown if he enters Atlantica.
- One explanation is that Sora's clothes are magical, like his KHII outfit, allowing him to breathe underwater. Another is that Sora could be wearing a hidden O2 Mask, which would make further sence for Sci-Fi fans like myself. It's also possible that the Dream Worlds don't require breathing, though Sora did struggle to breathe in The Grid at one point...
- Gag: In Country of the Musketeers, Donald is portrayed as a coward and Goofy as an idiot. Though they soon manage to get over all this, both might have kept some of their preveous personalities as Donald was shown to be a coward in Atlantica, the Underworld, Halloween Town and the Pride Lands, while Goofy was shown to be an idiot by fiddling with the terminal in the Pit Cell in Space Paranoids, accidently sending the trio into the Game Grid (the manga adaption sticks more closer to his true nature, however)
- Gag: Two of Sora's former party members (other than the main characters and Tron) are referenced in DDD: Captain Jack Sparrow's name is a part of the Dream Eater cups, while Auron will sometimes send Sora or Riku a party or challenge through a Link Portal.
