Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories for Game Boy Advance "Boss FAQ" By Mykas0 Mykas0 [at] gmail.com version 1.0 11-12-2004 BE SURE TO READ THIS FIRST PART! You can read this faq as long as you don't change ANY part of it (including this small introduction). Also, you can print it but only for use at your home, you may NEVER sell this stuff or else you will make me really mad and maybe I won't work anymore! Finally, if you want to use this faq on your site you have to mail me and ask me for it, I will almost surely grant it to you! =) Also, I must warn you that this faq is full of small spoilers, so if you don't want the game spoiled for you, just don't read it! The order in which I disposed the Bosses are the order I fought them in my game, but you don't need to do it exactly like this, as most of the things only depend on your level or, sometimes, in the cards that you have! Finally, I only consider "bosses" those enemy battles from which you can't run away (except for the Tutorials, but I doubt you need help with those ones... Unless you don't know english, but if you don't know english why on earth are you seeing this o.O'' ), and I will try to cover all of them in this faq! 0.

Introduction Despite that your level doesn't matter much in this game, by levelling up you will be able to gain some extra things, like new moves or get more hp... So, if despite this you can't seem to win against a specific boss, try levelling up to get more SP or HP points, which are really useful for Sora! As for the HP values, when I say something like "(x-Y HP)" it means that its HP can change between those values, depending on the floor in which you are facing it! 1. Guard Armor (200 HP) The first boss battle you will find in the game, and it isn't a very difficult one as you can imagine. Just use your normal keyblade cards against the 5 weak points of this boss (which are his legs, his arms and his... well... the rest of this body!) and use Donald and Goofie as soon as you have a chance for it. The opponent only has an attack that may cause you trouble, but if you use a card with value 0 at the same time that he performs it, you won't have any trouble, as you will break his attack. Don't use the combo thing that you learned from Squall, as it will make your first card used in it disappear until the end of the battle, which isn't a very good idea... 1.1 Axel (320 HP) Despite of his looks, this guy is preety easy to beat. First, be sure to equip the Simba Summon card you got from Leon (Well, I would rather call him Squall Leonhart, but then fans from KH1 would flame me...) on your deck. Now, you will notice that the enemy is always disappearing, so start using your keyblade cards to try striking him, and also use Simba. Also, be sure NOT to use any combos, since you will need all your cards. Finally, and as you may imagine from his special attack (which turns out being not very strong...), he is weak against Ice, so be sure to use your ice card, but ONLY when he is recharging his card, or else he will just avoid it by disappearing. So, keep on striking him with your keyblade cards, Simba and Ice and eventually you will win! 2. Card Soldier (88-120 HP and 110-150 HP) Quite easy battle, I don't think you will need any help with this, but just use Simba and your attack cards and I bet that you will beat them in no time! They seem to be lots, but you can beat them easily, fear not! 2.1 Trickmaster (550-750 HP) Like the Guard Armor, this guy is pretty easy. Once again you won't need to use any combos, so just keep on attacking with your normal keyblade cards (if you have any new, higher level ones, be sure to equip them in your deck) and you will easily win. Also, use Simba, and if possible try collecting 3 Donald cards and use them as a combo, for an high extra damage to this boss. Sometimes he may break your cards, with some of his high level cards, but you can easily avoid his attacks, as most of them are just some Fire attacks thrown at you. 3. Cloud (275-375 HP) This is one of those battles that may turn out being somehow hard if you don't know what to do. Apart from his super hot combo (the one he uses by joining 3 high level cards with his face...) which hits you 3 times however you are, he isn't very strong... So, be sure to take some healing cards with you (2 or 3 are enough...) and heal when your health is below its medium value, but NEVER use combos, as you will need all the cards you can use. Oh, and you can remove Simba from your deck in this battle, as he won't be able to cause much damage (or any at all, but I can't be sure of that...). Finally, be sure to add the best cards you can to your deck before this battle, but also some cards with value "0", as you will need them to stop Cloud's combos... If you really can't manage defeating him, just keep on healing yourself until he can't perform more combos (because he would just have 2 cards left, or something...) and then attack him with everything you've got! 3.1 Hades (440-600 HP) This is surely the toughest battle that you faced up to now, so you will need to be very careful in this one. First, equip the best keyblade cards you have, then equip Simba and other summon cards (if you have any more, which I doubt...). some Cure cards (they are green and they have a leaf...) finally equip some cards with value 0, IN THIS SPECIFIC ORDER. I am not sure if you already noticed this or not, but the cards with value 0 can ALWAYS stop any combination of cards from your opponent. When Hades is about to use his best attacks, he will turn red. So, go the section of the deck in which you have your cards with value 0 and use one of them, which will instantly stop his attack. As soon as you don't have any card with a 0 left, be sure to shuffle your deck. After sucessefully stopping his attack, strike with Simba and with the best cards you have currently on your deck to cause him some damage. Be sure NOT to use any combos, since those will take some cards from your deck and you will surely need them later in this hard battle. If you can't seem to win despite my advice, try gaining some more levels in order to get more HP and SP points and be able to put more/better cards on your deck. There is also a small tip... You can use many ice cards instead of those of Cloud, since (and as you may imagine...) Hades attacks with fire element you can use the ice element against him, meaning that it will cause him great pain, mainly if you make combos using 2 or 3 consecutive ice cards... 4. Parasite Cage (605-825 HP) Despite that this is a very easy battle, your best bet will be taking some healing cards and best keyblade cards you have. Since the poison really inflicts some damage, you need to stick to the platforms and only attack when you are near the enemy. Never use your summons, since the summoned thing may appear on the poison field and it will be instantly stopped. However, the combo of 3 Cloud cards can work good, but I doubt you have 3 of those by now. Despite that this boss' attacks can't make you much damage, use the healing cards as soon as needed for having an easier time. Finally, be sure to get the mickey card if you see any, since it will make you invulnerable to poison for a certain time, which can really help you make some extra damage to the boss. 4.1 Lots of weak hearthless (each with 36-50 HP) Appears that some people were having trouble with this, despite of this one being an easy battle... All you need to do is start killin them as soon as possible, and NEVER stopping... How can you do this? Don't use any magic, combos or summons (other than Cloud), so in a quick sum up... Just strike as much as you can you your keyblades and kill as many as possible, and if the bar gets red and starts flashing, that's because it is starting to go down, which means that you need to attack more of those monsters. When the bar get full and turns yellow, just kill all the enemies that are currently on screen, and that will finish the level... The keyword here is... FAST! 5. Oogie Boogie (550-750 HP) Most people seem to think that this is an hard battle. However, it is easier than people think. For this battle you just need to take as many Cloud cards are you can and as many cards with value 7, 8 or 9 as you can. You will notice that this boss only throws you some dice, and those are always activated by a level 7 card. So, when he throws the dice, use one of your cards with level 0, 8 or 9. This will make one of the three slots under the fence stop rolling, and once all three are stopped, then fence will go down. Then, you can enter the place where the boss his and attack him for a limited time. So, your best bet is using your Cloud cards on front of him as soon as you can, if possible using a combo of 3 Cloud cards, to get a special attack that will greatly damage him. One the fence returns to its place, shuffle your cards and repeat the entire process up to the point in which you finally get to defeat him. Possibly you will get at least 1 mickey card (looks like a green card shaped like Mickey's head) if you destroy a certain dice during this fight, so be sure to use it when all the three slots are ACTIVE, I mean, rolling! This will make the fence stay down for a longer time, giving you the oportunity to make some extra damage to this weak boss! 6. Jafar (550-750 HP) As soon as this battle start, you will notice that the red genie is invulnerable to ANY of your attacks. So, how to defeat this giant monster? Well, you will notice that sometimes the 3 panels move and one of them will go high up. Make your way up there and you will spot Iago (Jafar's bird) holding the magical lamp. As you may imagine, your target is to hit him, and the best way is to always make your way up to the highest panel, jump and try to hit him at least 3 times with your best keyblade cards. DON'T USE COMBOS, as they would spend some of your cards and, if you are unlucky, this battle may take you a long time to finish. As before, I think your best bet will be taking a lot of keyblade cards and some healing ones, as Jafar has an attack in which he throws a huge stone at you, and as you may imagine that REALLY hurts! As for the mickey card, they seem to put all the 3 panels high, and then you can easily attack Iago, but as you may already know by now they are not that usual. If you are wondering about summon cards, Simba and Cloud may turn out to be somehow useful, the first one to be used whenever you want and the other one to be used it "eventually" you get a mickey card and you have the change of being near the bird. If you still having trouble with this, well... just be sure not to loose any of your healing cards (be sure to take 3 or 4 into this battle...) and keep on striking Iago, he will eventually die. 6.1 Larxene (1120 HP) Ok, another of those guys in black clothes, which you will have to defeat in order to gain access to more levels... However, it is quite easy to win this battle, just take 2 or 3 healing cards, Simba and Cloud. Now, use the same technique as I told you some battles before... Start by having the enemy use his combos (she has 2 or 3, if I recall...) so that she spends her cards on them, and then attack her with your best keyblades, Cloud and Simba... Be sure to heal if your health drops below his medium value... Sometimes she can send you some rays that will catch you and take you to her, but those don't seem to cause much damage, don't worry... Also, NO COMBOS this time (well, appears that I say this in every battle or something...), as you will need all the cards for attacking that you have... Hope you can win to her easily too, just like I did! =) 7. Dragon Maleficent (960-1140 HP) One of the worse things about this boss is that it spits some flames that sticks to the ground and can heavily damage you. Once again, your best bet would be using your best keyblade cards and lots of healing ones (once again, 3 or 4 cards will be enough...). Be sure to attack these flames on the ground sometimes, as they grant you mickey cards, which will create a platform in the middle of the screen, which makes it easier for you to hit the dragon's head (its weak point, if you were wondering about it...) and a big help to avoid other flames for some time. Except for this small detail I guess this is an easy battle, you will just need to avoid the flames (the dragon can bite you, but that doesn't cause you much damage...), heal when necessary and then strike with your best keyblade cards. However, DON'T USE COMBOS, since they are somehow a way to spend some cards, which you may need later. As for summon cards, I guess that only Simba will be of great help in this one, because it will be able to hit the dragon's face even if it is in a hard to defeat place! If you really can't seem to do it, try Dumbo too... 7.1 Riku (1120 HP) Despite of what I heard about this character, this battle turns out being really easy you just need to use the same cards you used for the last boss and you will easily win, mainly by using lots and lots of keyblade attack. The opponent has some combos, but they aren't very powerful, so just attack him with every keyblade attack you can, heal from time to time and he will go down in no time. Just don't try using your summons, as he will break them or just avoid them... 8. Ursula (640-760 HP) Another easy battle, for this one you will just need to take your keyblade cards with value 7, 8, 9 and 0 (two will be enough)and some healing cards. As soon as the battle starts, attack one of the two central tentacles until it goes down. Then, start jumping and hitting the head 3 consecutive times (NOT USING A COMBO!) or more, if you have the time for it before the tentacle going up. Then keep on repeating for some time, until Ursula seems to move left (or right) and appear with the trident. Then, wait until she makes a weird noise and seems to send some rays at you, which you should stop by using your cards with value 0. Then, attack her tentacles and head again until you win. Also, be sure to avoid the bubbles that sometimes she uses, they don't cause much damage but they can get Sora confused, which isn't a very good idea, as you will have an harder time with your controls... If you find a Mickey Card use it right away, as it will send the tentacles away and lower Ursula's head for some time, giving you the chance to land some good blows. 8.1 Riku (1120 HP) This battle is almost as easy as the first one that you fought against this character. He has a new ability called "Dark Firaga", which doesn't seem to cause you much damage... So, just do exactly what you did in the last battle with him, and everything will go find... Oh, you don't want to scroll up just to read that stuff again? Ok, I will paste it here... " Despite of what I heard about this character, this battle turns out being really easy you just need to use the same cards you used for the last boss and you will easily win, mainly by using lots and lots of keyblade attack. The opponent has some combos, but they aren't very powerful, so just attack him with every keyblade attack you can, heal from time to time and he will go down in no time. Just don't try using your summons, as he will break them or just avoid them... " Good luck with it! ;-) 9. Captain Hook (640-760 HP) Truly, this may be the thoughest battle that you will face so far, that's why I chose this level in last place. Apart from having lots of high level cards, Hook can also throw some bombs at you, which will REALYYYYYYYYYYY damage you. Also, you will be fighting in his ship, which means that the entire scenario will be moving, making it hard for you to dodge some of his attacks (like the bombs!). So, I guess that your best best will be taking 3 healing cards, 3 or more Cloud Summon Cards and then put the best keyblade cards you currently have, on your deck. Now, the best idea is... Use the 3 Cloud Cards to make a combo, which should use a really good triple attack that will deal Hook a huge ammount of damage. Then, use the 2 Cloud cards that you still have ALONE, and only when you are at a distance from Hook that ensure you not to fail your attack. Finally, heal as necessary and continue striking with all the best keyblade cards you have. If you are still having problems, try adding some cards with value 0, in order to break his best attacks (yep, mainly the bombs...). Oh, and the ship you are in is always moving left and right, meaning that you will have an hard time avoiding the bombs! 9.1 Vexen (1120 HP) Another of those guys in black suit... Appears that each of them is specialized in a particular type of attack, and this one seems to use a lot of Ice attacks, so you know what to do, right? Well, you can just take this battle with the cards you usually use, but in order to have an easier time you should use lots of Fire cards (alone or in combos of 3) and some Cloud cards, apart from cards with value 0 (to stop his attacks, you don't need them but you want want a couple of them, to stop some of them...) and some healing cards, as usual. If you want to use your keyblade cards to attack him, be sure to attack him from behind, as his big shield is able to stop ALL the physic attacks used in his front. Also, if he freezes you (well, this is easily noticed, as Sora will "just", well, like... BE INSIDE OF A HUGE ICE BLOCK -_-'''' ), just keep pressing directions in the control pad and you will, after a while, make the ice block destroy itself and continue the battle. Again, be sure to take a LOT of Fire cards, as they will be your main way of attacking in this battle! 10. Vexen (1120 HP) This is almost exactly the same battle that you fought before, so it will be rather easy. Despite that your opponent has some new powers (1 or 2...) that aren't very powerful, your best idea is just trying to avoid them and continue striking with lots of Fire attacks and Cloud cards, as in the previous battle. This time he will also have some cards that enable him to revive himself and win some HP when he is just about to die, but just keep on healing yourself (be sure NOT to use combos with the healing cards) and attacking him and eventually he will die... 10.1 Riku (1120 HP) Strangely, this is exactly equal to the last battle that you fought against him. Personally, I took on him with exactly the same deck that I had used against Vexen, but you can use something else, as long as you take some Cloud cards (5 or more...), some healing ones (which, as before, shouldn't be used as a combo) and lots of keyblade cards for attacking. 11. Darkside (1920 HP) This is an easy battle, however it may become boring since you may take a long time to finish it. First, be sure to put on your deck the following things: 2 Cloud Cards, 3 healing cards, 3 cards with value 0 and the best keyblade cards as you can, in the biggest ammount you can. Now, what you have to do is... first, evaluate his pattern, as it is always almost the same. When he is using the attack in which he sends a huge energy ball to the air, break it with with your cards with value 0. When he puts his hand on the floor you can have a good time and attack it, if you use a Cloud card you will cause him more damage but if you take too much time you may not be able to attack him. Then, keep on attacking when he puts his hand on the floor or try to get a mickey card (I am not sure, but you may have more chances of getting one if you destroy those things that usually are seen flying across the scenario), which will create a flying platform that takes you exactly to the front of this huge monster's face. And after a long time, hope you can finally defeat him! =) Oh, but there are easier ways to defeat this giant monster... You can put some more extra Cloud cards, some healing cards and lots of Keyblade cards with value 7, 8 and 9. Now, use the Cloud cards ONLY in combos of 3, in order to get 3 powerful strikes on the monster's face. Then, use the keyblades to attack him "normally" (well, if there is anything normal about this giant monster...) on the hand (when possible) and on the face, healing when necessary. Keep on doing this for some time and *eventually* you will beat him. Not very hard, is it? 11.1 Riku (1680 HP) This time, some things have changed... First, he seems to have a lot more HP, plus now he has a new special attack, which "only" turns out being one of the best ones in this game... So, I guess you will need some more advices this time... Be sure to put lots of 7, 8 and 9 keyblade cards on your deck, some healing cards (3 or 4...), many Cloud cards (5 or 6, I would say) and finally some cards with value 0, all in this particular order. Now, use the same technique that you used against him before, I mean, strike with combos of 3 Cloud cards, lots and lots of strikes with your best keyblades and heal when necessary, I mean, whenever your health probs above its its medium value. Also, be sure to use your cards with value 0 to stop Riku's best move, which turns the entire screen black and causes you a lot of damage. Apart from this move and his increased health bar, just be sure to beat him as you did in the previous fights against him... 11.2 Larxene (1680 HP) Ok, appears that you will have to face this girl again... Personally I took on her with exactly the same deck that I had taken against Riku, but if you are having trouble, try adding some more Cloud cards to your deck. Now, use the keyblades to attack when you have the chance for it (be careful, since Larxene will sometimes break your cards), use the cards with value 0 to stop of her attacks (you don't need to use those in this battle, if you want just remove them and add some extra Cloud cards) and heal when necessary, and I believe that by now you already know what I mean by this... 12. Axel (1680 HP) As before, he is weak against Ice attacks, so my strategy for this battle is somehow weird... Get lots of Ice cards, Cloud cards and healing cards, none of them in a premium fashion. Now, equip as many Ice cards as you can, then lots and lots of Cloud cards and finally some healing cards (as many as you want, but personally I took 4 high level cards), plus some keyblades with value 0 (I am not sure if you noticed this before, but in order for a deck to be completed to need to have at least one keyblade card on it!), in order to break one of his best attacks, in which he uses some fire balls that just go round and round around you and hit you several times, if you are not careful with it... And even if you are, maybe you will take 1 or 2 hits from it... So, now go into battle and use combos of 3 Ice Cards and combos of 3 Cloud Cards, always starting with the card with lower value that you have on your deck, since you will loose it when performing your combo. So, do this with both the Cloud cards and the ice cards, but be sure to heal when necessary... This is the easier way to defeat him, but there may be other ways, since most people don't seem to have the same good cards I have, your better chance is taking your best keyblades, as many Cloud cards as you can and lots (and I mean LOTS) of healing cards. Now, strike with combos of 3 Cloud cards and with as many single (DON'T USE COMBOS WITH THESE!) keyblades as you can, and heal every time it is possible, but try not to spend any healing cards on combos, as you will really need them. Using this technique you may face an hard and slow battle which may take a long time to complete, but eventually you will win... If you still are having trouble, try going back and levelling up, in order to put even better cards on your deck. 12.1 Marluxia Despite of what you could think, this turns out being a not very hard battle... Just do what I tell you and I bet you will have a lot more chances than you could think on first place! In the correct order (I mean, in the same order that I am telling you), put lots of keyblade cards with value 7, 8 and 9, lots of Cloud cards with high value (I mean, 7, 8 or 9), at least 4 healing cards (with high values, of course...) and then 4 or 5 of the cheapest cards with value 0 that you can find. Now, attack him with the keyblade cards of high value, with combinations of 3 Cloud cards (be sure not to let him break them, as he has combo cards of high value but sometimes he also uses cards wih value 0), use your cards with value 0 to stop his combo attacks and also be sure to heal yourself before it is too late. Also, be sure to be extremely careful with one of his normal attacks, in which he raises his scythe and quickly makes an attack with it, which seems to cause you more damage than most of the attacks he uses (yey, the screen is full of petals! ... so what? -_- ), and that can turn out being a problem. Apart from that, just keep on atttacking him with everything you've got, also healing yourself, and after some time you would have finished this batle... 12.2 Final Battle So, you will be facing Marluxia on top of a giant robot, or something like that, I don't actually know what THAT is... Personally I took into this battle exactly the same cards that I had taken against Marluxia, but you can choose your own options, based on everything that you learned on all the battles up to now, but please to be sure to take at least 4 Cloud cards of value 7 or above (not 0, please!). Now, start by attacking the two arms of the robot until you destroy them. If he sends some some flying flowers at you, be sure to break the cards that appear, that will destroy one of the flowers. Once you destroyed the 2 arms, the real battle is just starting. He seems to use lots of different attacks, but your best bet is just staying "quiet" when you can't seem to attack Marluxia on top of the robot and then just break all the cards he uses against you, that's an easy task since he won't use any combos, and also be sure to attack Marluxia when you get the chance for it. Then, when you get the chance of jump on top of the robot, do it as soon as possible, and if Marluxia is looking at your side, be sure to be really next to him and use a SINGLE Cloud card, and keep on using them one by one until you are thrown out of the robot back into the ground. Now, keep on repeating all this until he dies, but be sure that heal ONLY when that action is sure to break one of his attacks. Eventually you will be able to finish the battle and watch the final sequence of the game! Now, if you did i up to here you would have unlocked a new option in the main menu, which will enable you to play as Riku. 13. Dragon Maleficent There is not much you can do in this battle... Be sure to enter the battle completely healed, and just jump as much as you can and try hitting the enemy in its head, while using your attacks to destroy those green flames that sometimes are created by her. This will sometimes grant you one of those green mickey cards, which creates a platform that may be somehow useful to you. Keep on hitting her and eventually you will win! 13.1 Ansem Once again, there isn't much thing to do in this battle. Just hit him with everything you have got (don't use combos against him, never do that when you are playing with the "normal" Riku) and eventually you will win... Try to avoid his special attack (performed with 3 combo cards), since it won't damage you a lot but it can make you sad... Hope you can beat him easily, as there isn't much choice here... 14. Guard Armor Another easy battle, just start by attacking his 2 legs, then the 2 arms and finally the rest of his body. If you want, use a combination of 3 Mickey cards (from now on, when I say this, it means the cards you get on the field, not the green ones you usually got before!) which will cause him a lot of damage and greatly heal you. Apart from that, attack as much as you can and heal with Mickey cards! If you manage to get any of the green ones, use them to instantly attack his head for some time! 15. Parasite Cage Unlike you did with Sora, ignore the platforms and stay really in front of the enemy. Now, give him everything you've got, but be sure to get all the Mickey cards that appear in the screen, and use them to heal yourself (one by one or in combos of 3) when necessary. Keep on striking and eventually you will win this battle, but you can also use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card (press SELECT in battle and then use it using A), which will increase the power of your attack cards. 15.1 Vexen As in the battles against Sora, he seems to be using a large shield, which nullifies all the physical attacks that you use in front of him, so use the Dragon Maleficent's enemy card and always strike him from behind, but only when he is stopped or you will have an hard time hitting him. Keep on doing that, avoiding (or breaking) is attacks when he performs a combo, healing with Mickey cards and attacking him once possible. If Riku goes into Dark Mode (I mean, your character will get some black clothes) and strike faster, be use to perform a combo of 3 cards with value 9, which will activate the Dark Aura special attack, which surely causes your enemy an huge ammount of damage. But BE CAREFUL since this attack can only be used on dark mode! 16. Captain Hook Unlike the time in which you faced him with Sora, this battle turns now to be a lot easier. As soon as possible, use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card, and then attack him with everything you've got, never using combos or stuff like that. If he seems to use the bomb combo, use a card with value 0 to break it, and it won't cause you more trouble. Also, and as usual, use the Mickey cards to heal when necessary, and I bet you won't have any trouble this time... 17. Jafar Easy battle, just try going all the times to the higher platform, jump and try always striking Iago 3 times before falling. Just ignore the big red Genie, since he is invulnerable as before, as strike like I told you, and be sure to get any green mickey card to have all the platforms go up, and use the Mickey cards to heal yourself. Keep on striking and eventually you will win this easy battle... 17.1 Riku Hum? You are fighting yourself? o_O Well, guess you will understand later on what is happening here... As soon as you enter the battle, be sure to use Jafar's enemy card (which will make your cards unbreakeable for 20 attacks) and give him everything you've got until that card wears off. Then, use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card and keep on striking, and eventually you will get into Dark mode. There, use your "Dark Aura" (yep, that special combo attack that takes 3 cards with value 9 to perform) and by that time he should be already defeated. ;-) If not, just keep on striking him for more damage, as usual! 18. Oogie Boogie This time, just use cards with value 7, 8 or 9 to break his cards and stop one of the slots, once all three are down, you will get a chance to join him in the platform and give him some serious damage, so at that point use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card and strike him as much and as fast as possible. Keep on repeating until he dies, but if you don't seem to have any card with value 7,8 or 9, just reload your deck until you have one! Good luck, I just hope you don't need any help in this one since it is really easy... 19. Hades Once again he may turn out being an hard battle, if you don't know how to face him... First, use the cards with value 0 to break his combos, until you reach Dark mode. Now, use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card and keep on attacking him with your normal keyblade attacks. Strangely, each time you use in sucession it will, at the third hit, perform a more powerful attack that really damages Hades, so be sure to keep on hitting him. If you are taken back to your normal mode, break more of his combos until you go to Dark Mode again and repeat until he is defeated. Also, you can use your "Dark Break" in dark mode, if you make a combo which total card value vary between 5 and 15 or, even better, use your "Dark Aura", but for that you will need three cards with value 9, and maybe you don't have them now... 20. Trickmaster Really easy battle, just attack him with everything you've got and he will easily die. I even doubt that you will need to use your Dark mode, since just attacking him with your normal attacks and healing with the Mickey card will be more than enough to beat him! 21. Ursula If you are low in health (like I was), be sure to use the Oogie Boogie enemy card as soon as the battle starts, since it will constantly heal you for 10 seconds, time in which you should just hang around and dodge her attacks. Now, every time she uses the bubble attack be sure to avoid it, as you did with Sora, since it will cause Riku to stay confused for a while, which is really bad for you. Then, use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card and strike one of her middle tentacles, until she lowers it, and then jump and strike her head. If you ever go into Dark mode, use it wisely for an even easier way of defeating her. Just keep on repeating what I said, healing with Mickey Cards when needed and using the green mickey card if you get any (it will lower Ursula's head up to the ground, so that you have an easier time hitting her) as soon as possible. 21.1 Lexaeus Oh my god, he has a giant weapon! He is really strong! But... this is a really easy battle! Like, he will mainly use combos, so be sure to break them with a card with value 0, until you enter Dark mode. Now, just use the "Dark Aura" move (yep, the one that takes three cards with value 9) and it will cause your opponent and incredible ammount of damage. If he seems to break that attack with a 0 card, just keep on repeating it (I mean, using "Dark Aura" more times) and eventually you will win to him. However, if you don't have more cards to perform "Dark Aura" with, just reload your deck and attack him, in Dark mode, as the third strike will greatly damage him, like what happened to a certain boss that you faced before. But I must tell you of something... never try battling him in your normal mode, since he would just kick you really hard... Your only chance here is really going into dark mode, or else you can't really beat him, unless you cheat... 22. Darkside Here, the only problem is that you can't heal yourself, as Mickey seems not to be in your party anymore. Start by breaking the enemy's attacks, until you reach your Dark Mode. Now, you can just stay there, breaking his attacks and attacking his face when possible, or you can also use "Dark Break" attack (which is performed by a combo of 3 cards whose total value would be between 5 and 15), but be sure only to use it when he isn't about to disappear, or else you will miss the attack. Keep on doing that, but be sure to always break the attack in which he sends some energy balls into the air, as it can really damage you! Also, the best time for striking is when he puts his hand in the ground, since the 3 attacks you use from Dark mode can cause him some good damage. Apart from that, just continue breaking the attack I told you, attack when possible and eventually he will die! 23. Riku First, be sure to enter in this battle with your HP bars full. This time you will have to face him in a improved way, I mean, he will now have exactly all the power that you have on your Dark mode. Start by breaking some of his attacks (and the really careful, since you will REALLY need to break his "Dark Aura" or you will be in big trouble) until you reach your own Dark mode. Then, try seeing if you have cards for performing your own "Dark Aura", and if you don't, you may be in some problems... First, use Jafar's enemy card, and then You can just strike him without stopping, or you can combine your cards to use a "Dark Break". However, be sure to remember that you can't heal yourself, so you will have to strike as much and as fast as possible, or you will be in big trouble. If you really can't seem to beat him, level up and try getting more attack points, since that way you will be able to cause him more damage! 24. Ansem This is the final battle, and be sure to enter it with a full HP bar or you will be in big trouble. This surely gonna be the thoughest battle that you will face in this game, so please only face it when you are really ready for it. Personally I only fought him at level 94, but perhaps YOU can do better than myself. First, Mickey is back, meaning that you will be able to use him in the battle for healing yourself. However, that won't surely be enough for this amazing opponent. As soon as the battle begins, be ready to break ALL of his combos, as they are truly deadly. When you enter Dark mode, use Dragon Maleficent's enemy card and strike him with everything you've got, and in a non-stop way. If he seems to perform another combo, be careful and quick break his combo, ALWAYS using cards with value 0, not your own combos. I don't think it is a very good idea for you to use your "Dark Aura", since he can break it or avoid it by putting his hearthless in his front, which completly blocks the damage of an attack. Personally, I thought that the best chance for causing damage to him was just striking him in Dark mode, mainly because of the extra damage given by the third strike... However, you will notice that most of the times he just puts the hearthless in front of him, preventing any damage, so you must just keep on striking and eventually it will go away, and at that moment you will be able to damage him. When you need to heal yourself, always do it with a combo, mainly of 3 Mickey cards (if you have them at that moment) which will completly heal you, or only using 2 Mickey cards plus a normal card, but be sure to pick a card with an high value. If, despite all this you can't really seem to defeat him, just go fight some more enemies and get more level ups, since this is going to be the toughest battle in the entire game and you will surely need all the help that you can get!
