Form and sommoning building

sorry for spelling errors lol

This isn't really a cheat but it is very usefull. If you haven't noticed already that if you go into your form and exit the world you are in while in the form and come back to a new world your drive gage will be completely restored. It also works for summoning. I will tell you the best places to level up each form. Make sure that when you do this you return to a save point and exit the level before your gage is depleted or else you will have to build it up again.

Valor- For valor form you rais the level by each hit on a heartless. I have found that the heartless with the most health will alowe you to get the most hits on it. So I went to mulans level to the thrown room and went into t..

Keep your drive going

If you don't want to waste time getting back your drive then once you have one gauge left go to a save area and go to the world map(while still in the form),then go back into the same world and you should have your drive gauge full!

Automatic Refill for Drive Gauge

If you want to have your Drive Gauge refilled without having to go back to Olympus Coliseum, here is a simple solution. To refill your Drive Gauge, simply walk into a save portal with Sora still in a Form (any Form). Head to the World Map and go to wherever you need to, even the same planet you were on. When you go back in, you should have your Dirve Gauge maxed out. This works when using Genie and the others too.

Form Training & fighting Xemnas

Don't listen to those people that say you have to be a level 70 to kill xemnas, I did it when I was a level 52, all you need is alot of high potions (I only used 4) and skill. You also don't need to use reflect or any upgraded forms of it, you only need to use all the reaction commands that you can and get in close to hit him. One more thing, try your best to dodge his moves.

To train valor, master and wisdom forms all you have to do is have ay least 6 drive gagues and go to Merlin's house in Radient Garden/Hollow Bastion. Next go outside and unequip all abilities for your team mates and move forward. Kill all the heartless then run to the enterance to the Baily (don't go up the stairs, go the other way) killing all the heartless on the way. Go the opposite way to the enterance to t..

The King

You can fight as the king in the second level of beast's castale. When fighting Xaldan when you die as sora it says I will never give up then you get to fight as the King

Always get Max Drive after any Form Transformation and Easy Form

First (if you don't know how to level up a certain form), go to the main menu and then status then go to the form you want to level up.

Second, pick a good place that's good for leveling up that form (I can't help you decide and make sure it's near a save point).

Third, go to that place you picked and transform into that form you want to level up and fight the enemies.

Fourth, After you defeted all the enemies, go directly to the save point (make sure you're still in that form) and go to the world map.

Fifth, go back to that same place you were just in and look at you're drive gauge (it's full!), continue these steps for as much as you want for any of the forms to train them.


If you are in a Drive Form and you want to replenish your drive, go to a Talking Pit. Its a place where you can talk to the people in your party without them following you around. In The World That Never Was, there is one right before you walk into the door of light. Go into a drive form, then walk in there. It will be full, and you wont be in your drive anymore. If there isnt a Talking Pit around, you can just go to the Gummi Ship menu (the screen where you pick which world you want to go to) while your in a Drive Form.

Hope that helped!

Gliding Sora

Ok, to make sora be able to glide this is what you have to do:

First: Make sure you have Final Form, if you don't have get it!!!

Second:Go to Twilight Town, at the tower, enter the tower, then go up the stairs into that little portal.

Third: Change into Final Form and defeat the nobodies, you have to do this quick or the Drive Gauge will run out!!!

Fourth: When you deafet the Nobodies on the First Set of Stairs, DO NOT go into the next room, go back down the stairs to the save point at the bottom of the tower.

Fifth: Make sure you're still in Final Form, go to the save point and do World Map,

Sixth: Go right back to the tower from the world map, ( your Drive Gauge will be full again!!!)

Seventh: Keep doing that untill you get your Final Form to Level ..

Flying Sora

Ok first you need to have final form

Then you need to level it up to level 3

Just go to Twilight Town,the tower, go outside, turn into final form and just fight all the nobodies and defeat them before the Drive Gauge runs out. After your done fighting them, go back into the tower


Go to the save point and select world map

Then just go to the tower again

Your drive gauge will be filled again,

Just turn into final form and fight the nobodies again and repeat this process untill you get Final Form to level 3

Then just equip Glide level 1 to SORA

Now you just have to jump and hold SQUARE and you will be flying

If you get the high jump from VALOR form, it will help with your flying

You can gliding..

Max Drive Guage

Ok, Get 3 drive bars and turn into Valor or Wisdom form. Then go straight to a save point that lets you go to the world map before your drive runs out. Once your at the save point go to world map and the got back or to another world. Once your there, look at your drive guage. It's full HURRAY

Form lvls

Go to hollow bastian before fighting seporath

Automatic Refill

To automaticilly refill your Drive Form or your Summon Form, simply enter the save station in one of your forms. While in the station click the World Map and head back into the planet you want. Your Drive metre should be full

How to restore your drive

Ok,all you half to do is go to the start menu and go to status,when your there look at any form you would like to level up and check how to level it up,then once you found out how to level it up go to world map and pick any place were the enemy you have to kill when your on the map you then look were you save,go to your drive form and kill as many enemy's you like then watch your drive gauge go down(make sure your close to a save point)and once it hits 1 or 2 run to the save point and press world map then go back were you left of and you will have full drive again.

Train Master Form high

If you want your Master Form up to lv 7, then read on. First go to the Crystal Fissure in Radiant Garden (Hollow Bastion, you had to beat Demyx there for the second time to get to the Crystal Fissure). Anyways, go out to the Ravine Trail and put on Master Form. Kill the Morning Stars (the giant green spikey dudes) and they drop giant drive balls which give you 3 experience for Master Form every time you pick one of them up. Then keep going until you get to the end of the trail. If you had enough drive bar, run back to the Crystal Fissure, and go to the world map if your still in Master Form. This will put your drive gauge up to max and you can keep doing that. If you didnt make it in time, then go to Olympus Colloseum and enter one of the tournaments, then immedeatly quit and you will ha..

Drive Forms

The best places to level up drive forms are at Hollow Bastion/ Radiant Garden & The World that Never Was. The first one has a lot of heartless and the second has a lot of nobodies.

Level up master form

The master form is leveled up by collecting drive orbs so for an easy way to level it up is to go to the mulan level (I have no clue what it's called) and go to the ridge section and thats north from the burned down camp...

I think it's the ridge..

Well anyways clear the area of heartless and nobody's and go south to the camp and go back to the ridge with no enimies there

Now just go to the master form and destroy and collect the drive orbs from wagons, dragon fireworks, and some other stuff you light on fire to get orbs

Hope I helped! Just do this over and over until you reach the maximum level

Easy to get to Zemnas with Riku

All you have to do is keep doing the dark fire thing and hold down the up button at the same time you should be shortly after.

PS: when you destroy the clone of Zemnas he'll make another.

Easy form level ups

You can easily level all your forms to level 7 (MAX) within an hour by following the below guide.


World: The World That Never Was

Location: First save spot

Guide: Okay start out by equipping Sora's weapon (not the form's) as Oathkeeper, this will give him a form boost. Equip Valor's weapon as any that give drive points (ex: damage drive). This will give drive boots if Sora receives damage. Proceed through the ally into the area with the Shadow heartless. Go into valor and attack. If you have six drive gauges (which you should by now) you can let Valor run out, and reenter after Goofy reappears. If you don't, or when you enter the second time, when you drive gauge reaches about half way down 1 head back to the save sphere. When you reach the save sphere, ..

Perfect Training Groud for all Forms



Once you've unlocked The World That Never Was (TWTNW) go to the Fragment Crossing. Once you've stepped far enough, Shadow Heartless should appear. In this area, no matter how many times you kill them, they keep more appear. This is good for Wisdom, because you need to kill Heartless to level up, and since they're HP is so low, you could destroy them with ease, and they still come back. If your Drive Gauge is low, then go to the Alley in Between. Your Gauge should be filled up, getting you ready to fight more Heartless.


Go to Mulan's world, or the Land of the Dragons, and stop by the Village. Go up the slop to the mountain and kill the Heartless that are in this area. Go back to the Village, then go back up the slope. ..

Under wold second pain and panics cup

After you beat all of the cups from panic there is another tournement at hades place and thats were you get all of the second cups....hope I'm right

Pride Rock Surprise

Okay, so right before you fight the huge Heartless boss in the Pride Lands (the final boss), go into The King's Den at Pride Rock. Go through the den and up the staircase. You'll arrive at the peak of Pride Rock and find a BIG surprise!

Tons of flying Heartless will be there, just itching for a fight. If you fight every one of them, you'll gain approximately 1 and 1/4 level, depending on what llevel you are already on.

Levelling Up Final Form

The easiest thing to do to level up your Final Form is this:

Go to Olympus Coliseum and enter a tournament. Doesn't matter which one becuase your not going to fight in it.

Exit the tournament and your Dirve gauge should be full.

Go to Twilight Town and land in The White Room (Namine's Room)

As uou walk out the door to the main hall, switch into your Final Form. Nobodies will be all over the place so simply go around destroying them. You get about 20 Nobodies each time you do this. Make sure to equip several skills that prolong your Drive gauge.

Simply return to Olympus, refill your Drive and return to Twilight Town

Quicker way to level up Final Form

Another way to level up your Final Form quicker is:

1.Follow the steps as far as filling your Drive Gauge over and over

2.Go to the WTNW and go to the save area just before the Alter of Naught

3.Walk down the ramp out of the room

4.This walkway should have a very large area in the middle, ignore the Nobodies here, they are difficult to hit and are a waste of time. Go out the other side(basically retracing your steps)

5.Here is where you will launch your Final Form. Step out a little further away from the door and you will have Berserk Nobodies appear. They are difficult so try to destroy the first wave quickly. When the first wave is finished, move down the ramp and continue hacking away at the Nobodies that constantly keep appearing on the ramps.

Master Form Level Up Fast

If you want to get your "Master Form" up really fast then all you have to do is go to the Land of Dragons world after you lock it two times or one (it doesn't matter) and go up to the "Ridge". There you should see some wagons...go into "Master Form" and blow them up by attacking them they should drop 10-33 drive balls. Go to the next area and then straight back while still in "Master Form", the wagons will be back. Rinse and repeat until "Master Form" is a high level.

God speed leveling

Requirement: able to one hit ko rapid thrusters in one magnera.

Short and simple: Equip gullwing keyblade (exp boost effect) and equip skill exp boost. (that is a total of triple exp when you're at low hp). Go to the peak in pride lands (remember to be at low hp), so run around the tiny area and cast magnera at a decent rate (don't let your mp run out). The rapid thrusters drop mp balls (to your good cause). Magnera can kill the rapid thrusters and lure more in when they enter the area. At this rate, you can get around 36k exp in a mere minute. Don't worry about hp since you would have killed anything close before they reach you. When the area is cleaned out just reenter the area and it's full again. Repeat the sequence.

Best way to gain final form levels

Go to the world that never was and to the altar of naught

Go down the stairs, when the nobodies appear transform,

Kill them all, go back up the stairs and your drive gauge

Should be full again, then keep repeating until you get to

Level 7


You can fight seifer after sturgle tornement

Name change and the secert of NOBODIES

Some names in the game have been changed.
