* Sora's final boss fight--[[spoiler: Xemnas]]--showcases just how badass he is. First of all, Sora's been kicked back into his fourteen year old body, so he's well below his peak. Second, Sora is essentially in the Realm of Darkness, or somewhere of comparable darkness, so he's being constantly eaten away and corrupted. Nevertheless he's able to beat down [[spoiler: Xemnas, who could have made mincemeat of Sora when he was fourteen, and whom Sora was barely able to beat in VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII]]. And it isn't until after the battle is over that Sora collapses and gives in to the Darkness. And this is with [[spoiler: Xemnas]] pulling out all the stops--warping the Arena, throwing ''lots'' of skyscrapers, and attacking faster than in his other fights in the series.

* The inclusion of MickeyDonaldGoofyTheThreeMusketeers into the series' lore gives the Disney trio a pretty awesome bit of Fridge CharacterDevelopment. In the film, the reasons why they aren't being made Musketeers is: 1. Donald's a coward, 2. Goofy's an idiot, and 3. Mickey's physical stature prevents him from being useful. The film ends by basically saying that they cover for each other's shortcomings and can become better together. This is exactly what happens in Kingdom Hearts: Donald's gotten over his cowardice, Goofy routinely picks up on things faster than Donald or Sora, and Mickey is one of the most powerful characters still active in the story. Even better, all three of these things were true for the original Kingdom Hearts, which precedes the movie by two years.

Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: In a meta sense, the fact that he went from a minor villain character who was supposed to die at the beginning of 2 to a main character who saves the heroes multiple times and even earns a Keyblade through sheer stubbornness is a big one for [[EnsembleDarkhorse Axel/Lea]].]]

** [[spoiler: Implies nothing; the subtitles for the scene outright say that she is the seventh and final Keyblade hero meant to fight against Xehanort. The most awesome part of this moment is TheReveal that it is Kairi who is even there, panning up to her with a {{Badass}} look on her face that makes her greatly resemble Aqua, if it wasn't obvious already that Kairi is her official successor.]]

* Riku vs. Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and the entire cutscene leading up to it. [[spoiler: Ansem, [[TheCorrupter as usual]], is trying to goad Riku to embrace the darkness, tempting him with the promise of being able to rescue Sora. Riku then mentions [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep his encounter with Terra]], and decides he is going to the real world to Sora's side--completely rejecting Ansem's offer. For once in the series, things are not going according to Xehanort's plan, and [[VillainousBreakdown he is pissed]]. Cue an epic, [[SequentialBoss two-phase]] boss battle, which culminates in Riku echoing the words he told Terra years ago, accompanied by [[CrowningMusicOfAwesome his leitmotif.]] ]]

Riku then calls out Ansem on how he now knows the truth of Ansem being the heartless of a former Keyblade Master, and how Darkness stole away his right to wield a Keyblade; He uses this to show the difference from him and Ansem, even after all this time and all of his struggles, he STILL wants to prove himself worthy to wield the Keyblade rightfully, and then mentions [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep his encounter with Terra]], Terra]] (who, initially wanted for Riku to become a worthy Wielder and decides Master someday when he is going gave him the Rite of Passage). Riku resolves now to go to the real world to Sora's side--completely aid--completely rejecting Ansem's offer.offer and showing that Ansem will not get to him ever again.

* There's a subtle one in Riku's final final boss fight. As his desperation attack, the boss readies a [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep ShotLock]], which is a bit of an Uh-Oh, since Riku doesn't have anything readily available in his arsenal to take that on [[note]]His best magic or his Spirit Links weren't anywhere ''near'' as powerful as the shotlock {{Limit Break}}s[[/note]]. However, Riku falls back on his Dream Eaters, who give him enough of a generic boost in power that he's able to meet the boss's LimitBreak head on with sheer force. Even better the if you pay close attention the attack he's using is his signature move Dark Aura. That's right that one move of his in the first game is used to beat a Shotlock.
