Go to the Pridelands and be sure you go to the save point at Pride Rock that is in Rafiki's place go the Lion's Den to the Peak where you fought Scar's Ghost and now it is full of nothing but Heartless as far as the eye can see. This is a great way to level up and you can keep going back to it to it whenever you want to level up, remember though the higher up in levels you are the longer it takes to level up but you can do this several times but to resummon the Heartless you must leave the Lion's Den to Pride Rock go back into the Lion's Den and back to the Peak and they will be back to battle you again. There are a lot of them so you get your experience points worth doing this.
Okay to do this you need to get to the begging of the world that never was I highly recommend you do this the moment you get there because it saves you a lot of time. To do this trick all you have to do is pick the form you want to level up (besides master) and go and fight all the heartless until your drive guards about to run out when it's about to reach zero run to the previous screen Donald and goofy should be standing around and your form will be cancelled and the drive bar will be at max if you defeat all the heartless then go into the world map and go back this works for summons to.
Leveling the summons to do this you need all the summons stitch (radiant Garden), chicken little, peter pan (Pirates of the Caribbean), and genie. To do this use the chicken little summon go into the area and use fps mode then end it do this until the bar reaches it's last gauge and go back to were Donald and goofy are then just repeat the process you get all of them to max within 2 hours at the most.
Master form leveling: to do this go to the beasts castle in the main hall area that leads to west and east wings make sure you have the jackpot ability on and the keyblade with that ability kill the enemies by the door run back to the save point go to the world map and go back it takes some time but this is the fastest way I've found
Final form: reach a the point when you have the option to fight Saix and Luxord go to the room before it defeat as many nobodies as possible and then run to back if you defeat them all run back and use the world map method mentioned above to spawn more enemies to kill them quickly I suggest using the magnet spell and thunder
Final Form is an extreme pain to level since there isn't really place where Nobodies continuously spawn for you to kill. The best place to level up Final Form is inside Organization XIII's Castle, in the room right before the Altar of Naught where you enter the void to fight Xemnas.
There are a few groups in there that spawn once or twice, and they are close together, so it makes good use of Final Form's limited Form Gauge.
The best way to level up your Wisdom Form is the areas before Organization XIII's Castle on the World That Never Was, such as the Memory's Skyscraper and the areas before it. The Heartless spawn in threes and continue to spawn after you kill them for several minutes, and since Wisdom Form gains EXP from the Heartless you kill while in Wisdom Form, it makes getting Wisdom Form up in levels very easy.
Once you've beaten the game, the next thing you'll want to do is level your character all the way to level 99. This is extremely easy if you go the The Pride Lands world and go to the top of Pride Rock. There are tons of Heartless there that give 55 exp per kill, and once you've killed them all, you simply leave the area and re-enter it and the whole group will be there again.
When you get to such a high level, more and more enemies will appear; If you were at level, say..... 10 or something, there would be only one wave for each (Roaming) battle, but on lvl. 30-40+, there would be more and more (and more, lol) waves of battles. (Depending upon which exact level you are on, of course.)
You must finish the Spooky Cave Mini-Game in the Hundred-Acre Wood, then you will unlock this keyblade.
Beat Shan-Yu in The Land of Dragons, then you will unlock this keyblade.
Defeat Pete at Timeless River, then you will be rewarded this keyblade.
You must finish the fight with Axel in Twilight Town, the part when Axel fades away. Then you will get this keyblade.
You must beat Barbossa at Port Royal, then you will unlock this keyblade.
You must beat Sephiroth, the optional boss at Hollow Bastion. This fight is challenging so have your form levels leveled up.
You must beat Xigbar in The World that Never Was, and after that you will unlock the keyblade.
You get the Ultima Recipe in the basement of the mansion in Twilight Town.
You must finish Chapter Three of Atlantica, and you will unlock it.
To win this Keyblade win the Goddess of Fate Tournament in the Underdome.
All that you have to do is get all of the 800 munny that Hayner tells you to get while your Roxas. I found this easy by practicing the job where you hang up flyers. When you take him the munny he gives you an ability point
After you beat every world and getting to the finish of The World That Never Was equip your 2 strongest keyblades to Valor form and go to a strong world such as Radiant Garden(Hollow Bastion) Twilight Town or The World That Never Was(I suggest the castle and in front of the skyscraper) and just go around battling heartless or nobodies. If you are low in the drive gauge head to a save point and go to the world map. It will fill your drive gauge all of the way. If playing on standard mode I would battle Sephiroth at level 75 with Ultima Weapon or Bond of Flames. Expert probably around 80 with ultima weapon or bond of flames. When you defeat him start using Fenrir
instead of just running away when he attacks just jump and float inplace and he will miss his attacks and you can take his first 4 health bars out without getting touched
