Kingdom Hearts II

I’m in Halloween town where there’s a sign on Dr. Finklestien’s wall that says, “After modifying the drain, climb over it to…” . What is the rest of the sentence and what does it mean, or what am I supposed to do?

Games Guru: I don’t think it means much of anything, except maybe to Dr. Finkelstein.

I can’t beat the Cerberus Cup. I get to the last level and I run out of time. Help needed!

Games Guru: You and me both, pal. My experience was that Cerberus ran away and I ran out of time. As I understand it, the tricks for beating this demon pooch appear on the screen-Evade, Jump-Dog Paddle. Words to live by. They will leave the monster mutt temporarily stunned, giving you a chance to strike.

How can I get lots of points in the tournaments, and how do I unlock the third paradox cup?

Games Guru: If we’re speaking about the Cerberus Cup, you will need to clear the Agrabah, Pride Land and Halloween worlds before you can enter.

What is the best way to get points in the Cerberus paradox battle? Also, where do you get twilight stones for Goofy’s shield?

Games Guru: A lot of people have trouble with this level. The best advice I can give you is to level up before you enter, and arm your keyblade with the thunder and magnet. As for the twilight stones, try taking them from nobodies in the World that Never Was.

How do you defeat Demyx in Hollow Bastion?

Games Guru: As it turns out, you never really fight Demyx. The trick to beating this rather timid bad guy is to destroy 100 of his water minions in 80 seconds. That may sound hard, but take heart—these guys are weak. In this battle of quantity, the trick is to use the “Wild Dance” reaction whenever the prompt appears. This will allow you to kill many minions at once.

It’s tough to find all the “Orichalcum+”es. I have one from the Hundred Acre wood, one from the throne room (Land of Dragons) and I understand I get one from the “goddess of fate” cup. Where can I find the others?

Games Guru: Square Enix was kind enough to give us a complete list of places to go for Orichalcum+:

  • Central Computer Mesa
  • Sunset Terrace (L4)
  • The Brink of Despair
  • Finish Starry Hill
  • Finish A New Day is Dawning
  • Finish Goddess of Fate Cup

    Riku’s keyblade is awesome!!!! 🙂

  5. How do you beat the leader of organization 13?

  6. i beated the whole game of kingdom hearts 358 2 days and got oathkeeper and two become one

  7. how do i beat xenmas in level 99

  8. Cool game but Kingdom Hearts 358/2 days is cool I got the game and beat it know every thing on it and I also got the dual keyblades for the power of light and darj known as Oathkeeper and Oblivion so ask me anything I will help you all.

  9. I started playing the original CoM (Chain of Memories) and am on the 13th (final) floor, but it asks you for a 2=, 8=, and 99! The 8= I am fine on, but these requirments for 1= and 2= are killing me!

    Anyway, want a tip on beating Xemnas when he uses the laser thing? Well, it gives you an option to either rapidly press the X or Triangle buttons (Riku or Sora), but press BOTH. Otherwise you will die unless you can press buttons faster than the speed of light. 😛

  10. how do you beat the guy with the dual guns and keeps calling you Roxas

  11. KHII is better than I better re:chain of memories is still the best

    You know, Sora, Riku, and Kairia are all Japenese words for sky, ground, and water.

    No it is called Kingdom hearts birth by sleep.

  14. for all kingdom hearts fans with a psp there is going to be a new game only for psp it is clled kingdom hearts birht by dreams

  15. beating sepheroth is hard

  16. in 358/2 how do you get past the antlion?

    • when it does tordado hit back boxes to k.o. it. repeat

    • When He Dos a Tornado After He Doesn’t Hit u several times, he will chuck out some box’s (explosive) doge them than use your KEYBLADE (NOT MAGIC) 2 knock them back at him (aim at him, when u hit) the box’ll get in the tornado and explode on him

    • find him and beat the crud out of him then when he gets off the ground a little bitstill beat him and when he goes to the sky beat his blocks right back at him when there glowing it might take a while and you might get defeated

    I noticed that all the Organization XII’s member’s names are an anagram of their original names (just take away the Z or X in their name). For example, when you remove the x in Roxas’ name and rearrange the letters you get Sora.

    • True. Xaldin is Dilan, Xigbar is Braig, and get this, Xemnas is ANSEM

      • Iff this is true then whats Axel and Xion

      • TheDudeAbides // November 7, 2010 at 9:11 pm //

        Axel’s true name is Lea.

      • jonbuddy1 // July 17, 2011 at 12:49 pm //

        @platapus, Xion’s could be Noi or Oni, except Xion was created out of Sora’s memories.

      • Ace Trainer Ash // July 22, 2011 at 7:09 pm //

        Wrong Xemnas is really Ansem’s apprintece look on the Secret Ansem Reports it states that he stole this name and when his nobody was created it was none as Xemnas.

        Ask me all bout the game I beat all of it.

        Questions accepted.

    • you need to sythesis enough to have a master kupo*i cant remeber name* but you get all orchlium + and you have to use the half amount of materials used ability to get the ultima weapon, for sephiroth you have to go to hallow bastion and confront him again on the far ouskirts past the battle against 1000 heartless

  21. Im stuck on the first boss plz hlp!

  22. in 358/2 days the first boss is the darkside a GIANT HEARTLESS!!!!
    he keeps shooting energy balls,bring in purebloods, make a energy ring, and meteors that follow you. so WATCH OUT!!!!!!!

  23. Hi im the frist person to use the name Sora and im the real Sora!!!

  24. there is a healing thing hidden in the water,so jump in when you got 1 life,{snicker snicker}

  25. sephiroth is hard 2 beat he goes so fast.what do you do after you beat sephiroth. i got kingdom hearts 358/2 days. i beat it it was EASY!!!!

    • After you defeat the mama’s boy, talk to Cloud and then you’ll initiate a cutscene. Then go back and talk to Sephiroth the mama’s boy and you’ll see another cutscene and get a new keyblade.

  26. Same as the first one: SUPER easy to beat. But I’m still waiting on birth of the unsleep to come out for the psp. 😛

  27. If you Want kingdom Haerts 358/2days you face this Hartless named LEECHGRAVE. IF you want Information to beat any boss gust ask me

  28. how do u get past the phantom thingy in port royal??!!! its hard i cant get it to drop any medallians =(

    • TheDudeAbides // November 7, 2010 at 9:16 pm // Reply

      The Phantom thingie is one of the more difficult bosses. What you do is hit him with magic like Fire to make him go ballistic and drop medallions everywhere. Grab them and immediately put them in the chest. Keep doing this until all medalions are in the chest and beat the thing up. Eventually it begins to suck up the medallions and an information will appear on the top of the screen. Get close to it and use a couple reaction commands to make fly. You’ll get the joke.


  30. best game trilogy ever!!!!

  31. to jp sunshine: all you have to do is use abitlitys such as trinity limit or and other devastating sleight and demyx should be very easy. Also, you might already know this, but his water clones can only take 1 hit before being defeated.

  32. To THX 118 (jonbuddy) I am getting Kingdom Hearts 362/2 days. 🙂

  33. i have beatin kindomhearts2 it is ooper much does kingdom hearts 368/2 cost and when is it going to come out

    no offense,but this game is a bit odd

  39. oh yeah BTW at the final boss when he uses his lasers press X and triangle REALLY fast and you wont take damage

  40. im at the final door but want to complete the synthesis stuff but am having rouble getting enough items–specifically the dense and twilight materials

  41. lol im level 99 my drive is 9 and i have ultima i got it in 3 days lol with no help

  42. Don’t feel relecutant to use the diffrent “Drive” forms as you will eventually unlock the “Final” form, no this is not the form where you turn into a shadow creature, but where his clothes turn whiteish gray and afterwords you can access “Final” form on the “Drive” command and in the Pause menu.
