1. INTRODUCTION

Hi, my name is Litz5522. Well, that's obvious. Anyway it's been about two months
since Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories came out. I got the game on Christmas 
and I was so glad that I could finally play the sequel of one of the most genius
games ever in full english. The game kept me busy for a long time. I decided 
that  once I beat Sora's Story Mode if there was no  Sleight Guide on 
GameFAQs, I would write one knowing that they would accept it. And look 
two months and  still no sleight guide! I think I have all of the sleights in 
my game if I am missing one please send me an E-mail at litz5522@yahoo.com 
giving me the name, description,  requirements and location of the sleight and 
I will put it on the guide ASAP. Also if you have any questions contact me.


2. VERSION INFORMATION

Version 1.0 - I put every sleight I know into the guide and sent a request 
for the guide to be on GameFAQs. So If you are reading this, hooray for 
me they accepted!

Version 2.0 - It's been over a year and most everyone is probably working
on Kingdom Hearts 2. I fixed some small things including some ratings
and did the FAQ. There will be little need to update again.

Version 3.0 - I told you little need. I added the location of Cross Slash +
thank you very much DvlHntr.

3. BASICS OF SLEIGHTS

In Kingdom Hearts: COM you may or may not know that Sora can no 
longer use his abilities from the first game as he's forgotten them the 
instant he stepped into Castle Oblivion. Donald and Goofy also can 
no longer help him in battle. A mysterious cloaked figure explains all of 
this and tells the heroes that their abilities are now in the cards. So 
what happened to those cool looking attacks Sora can pull off like 
Sonic Blade and Ars Arcanum. Well in battle you can "stock" three 
of any cards except enemy cards to pull of a combo. To stock a card, 
in battle press L and R at the same time when the card you want to stock 
is highlighted. You can stock up to two more cards and depending on what 
cards you use, you can do a different sleight. Finally, when the proper cards 
have been stocked the sleight name will appear next to the stocked 
cards. Press L and R once more to activate them. Sleights are like and card 
you use If an opponent uses (a) card(s) higher leveled than the sleight, it 
is broken. Also, a level zero card can break any sleight. And another 
addition to make it so you are using a sleight over and over every turn, 
everytime you pull of a three-card sleight, the first card is removed from
battle, so use your sleights sparingly and wisely. Some items can reload lost 
cards so sleight users should have some good items in their deck.

Here are some cards that can help you in sleights:

Riku - When you use a sleight, all cards can be reloaded. Works for 
5 sleights. ( CP-80 )
Location: Defeat Riku IV in Sora's story mode

Marluxia - Use a sleight twice in a row. Works for 3 sleights. ( CP-99 )
Location: Defeat Marluxia I in Sora's story mode

Ansem - Opponents can't see stocked cards. Works for 10 sleights. ( CP-60 )
Location: Complete Reverse/Rebirth mode and find it in a chest in Castle 
Oblivion in Sora's story mode.


4. TYPES OF SLEIGHTS 

  A. Attack Sleights
Uses keyblade cards ( red ) of differing types or same types to pull off fun 
and cool looking attacks. Probably the most useful of the sleight types.

  B. Magic Sleights
Uses magic cards ( blue ) of the same and different types to pull off 
powerful magic attacks  that do special effects or elemental 
damage to  the target. A truly useful set of sleights but the most 
extensive set of sleights. Most of these sleights require to be done
in the order shown otherwise they won't work.

  C. Friend Sleights
Uses Summon cards ( blue ) and friend cards ( green ) of same and 
different types to have allies fight alongside you. They are used a 
lot throughout the game but later on should be removed for a more 
attack based deck. Most of these sleights require to be done
in the order shown otherwise they won't work.

  D. Dark Sleights
Uses Riku's Soul Eater cards to pull of insanely powerful sleights. 
Only avalible when Riku is in Dark Mode.

7. FAQ
E-mail me with questions at Litz5522@ yahoo.com. Make sure 
they're on topic and no spam/viruses. Please don't say like 
"This game sucks" or "You have no life" or "Go get a girl". 
Also make sure the E-mail is spell and grammar checked 
and the subject should be "Kingdom Hearts COM Sleights"

SOME SPOILERS READ AT YOUR OWN RISK!!!!

Q. I have some sleights but they don't work. What do I do?
A. You need to stock the right cards so check that you have
the right combination first. If that doesn't work then try to
put them in the order I listed then they should. If they don't
then don't forget you do need to learn the sleight before you
can use it. 

Q. Is this game the same as the first one? Will I miss much
of the story?
A. Sorry but, no and yes. The game is similar in the Disney
worlds but the main story is much more. You are introduced to
the mysterious Organization XIII in Castle Oblivion where
Sora recalls a long lost friend and the events lead right up
to Kingdom Hearts 2. You will be very confused if you
don't play this before Kingdom Hearts 2.

Q. Can I have tips on how to play? How about a good deck?
A. I don't give the best fighting tips but you can consult a
full guide. I would say a good deck goes like this: Attack lvl 6+ 
then  Offensive Magic and Summons followed by an optional
Ether and a recommended Potion. After the potions place your
Cure cards and last: Level 0 attacks. Enemy cards depend on
your style. For sleight users I say Marluxia, Ansem and Riku.
For all decks I say Vexen and Lexaeus.

Q. I can't beat so and so, please help!
A. Refer to a boss guide, it's not my forte.

Q. Who is that Blonde Haired Kid?
A. Well technically there are two Blonde Haired kids in 
this game one is Namine and you'll see her a lot. The one
you are probably thinking of is Roxas. He will show up in
Kingdom Hearts 2. He's in a small scene at the end of
Revers/Rebirth.

Q. Who is DiZ?
A. He is truly an enigma isn't he? Play Kingdom Hearts 2
and you will understand all.

Q. What does that Organization want?
A. Jeez what's with all this story stuff? Once again play
Kingdom Hearts 2!
