** Similarly, the Drop mechanic itself overall. [[spoiler: Riku is effectively a Dream Eater within Sora's dreams]], so ''of course'' he can't be awake/asleep at the same time as Sora.

* LastChanceHitPoint: In addition to the already-existing Second Chance and Once More, this game adds Waking Dream, which is essentially both abilities combined for all of your Spirits. You're almost {{Railroad|ing}}ed into getting Waking Dream; by contrast, Second Chance and Once More are GuideDangIt level to find.

** DarkIsNotEvil: The "Spirit" Dream Eaters eat bad dreams just as there are "Nightmare" ones that eat good dreams. Spirits can also be synthesized by Sora, Riku, and others. [[spoiler:This trope, along with DarkIsEvil, is also the reason why Xehanort ultimately chooses Sora as a vessel, because Riku's CharacterDevelopment and revelations about the darkness led him to develop a natural resistance to its more corrupting effects, so even if Riku himself continues to use it, Xehanort can't use Riku as a dark vessel.]]

* InvincibleVillain: [[spoiler:Master Xehanort becomes a rather egregious example near the end. He's BackFromTheDead as if ''Birth by Sleep'' never even happened; gets to KickThemWhileTheyAreDown on Terra, Aqua, and Ven for their seemingly {{Senseless Sacrifice}}s; pulls a HijackedByGanon over pretty much everyone with his new StableTimeLoop; and, despite failing to possess Sora, still gets away largely successful with his near-complete True Organization XIII in the end. Not to mention how he already has a XanatosGambit set up for ''Kingdom Hearts III'': the Guardians of Light have no choice but to fight in his artificial Keyblade War, or else he'll just target the Princesses of Heart to use them for the X-Blade instead. Before the game's even out, no less.]]

* RedHerring: [[spoiler: Roxas in the opening joining the other Keyblade wielders in their fight against Master Xehanort. This was done to foreshadow that there was going to be Seven Keyblade wielders (the warriors of light). At the end of the game, it's revealed that it's ''Axel/Lea'', not Roxas, who is going to be the 7th member.]]

* DifficultButAwesome: Use of the Flowmotion mechanics in combat takes some getting used to. That said, they turn the game from a button mashy HackAndSlash to a {{Badass}} SpectacleFighter that has you blasting around enemies like a light-powered ninja.

** It's possible for the final boss to get stuck in the middle of an attack - he'll freeze, allowing you to attack him mercilessly without retribution. But if this happens, you won't be able to defeat him, as [[spoiler: the game will be unable to load his final attack when he reaches 1 HP]]. The only recourse is to reset to your last save - meaning you'll need to fight [[spoiler: Young "Trollnort" Xehanort]] [[invoked]] all over again, as well as repeat the final dive into Sora's heart.
