* 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.]]

The seventh (not counting remakes) entry into Creator/{{Disney}} and SquareEnix[='s=] [[{{Crossover}} crossover series]] ''Franchise/KingdomHearts'', ''Kingdom Hearts 3D [Dream Drop Distance]'' is a game for the {{Nintendo 3DS}} hand-held. This is the game that serves to connect not just ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep Birth by Sleep]]'', ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2 358/2 Days]]'', and ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded Re:coded]]'', but also every single game before them to ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsIII'' itself. The story initially concerns Sora and Riku's Mark of Mastery test conducted by Yen Sid--a journey into the realm of dreams and sleep, where they are to find the seven Sleeping Keyholes and release the worlds trapped within. However, during their quest, a mysterious and malevolent young man in a black coat makes himself known, and villains from the past begin to follow suit...

* RealityEnsues: [[spoiler: If it took the combined strength of Sora and Riku to finish off Xemnas in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', then naturally Sora will have a hard time here on his own, to the point that it drains him of his energy entirely. And unfortunately, even though Xemnas has once again been defeated, there are now other villains around to pick up the slack, which is easy with a weakened Sora.]]

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything: Under normal circumstances, it is entirely possible to Flowmotion up the side of Notre Dame [[note]]You may need a sharp aim, however, due to the invisible wall between the bars halfway up that cannot be Flowed off of[[/note]]. Try this while the city is on fire, and you'll only make it halfway up - Sora's fight with the Wargoyle is condemned to the square in front of the cathedral, and Riku needs to go through in order to end up behind Frollo for the cutscene.

Not really true. For it to be that trope, their efforts would have to mean absolutely nothing. But it was because of them that he didn't end the world a decade prior to this game, and has been in a position for Sora to stop his other plans.
* ShootTheShaggyDog: [[spoiler:The game retroactively does this to ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsBirthBySleep''. We now see that the sacrifices of the three heroes did NOT stop Master Xehanort at all. He simply regained his memories one year later before splitting into Ansem and Xemnas, both keeping the memories of Master Xehanort while striving toward his ultimate destructive plan, and now he's back and no worse for his set-backs. They partly made things even worse in the long run by merely foiling a quasi X-blade forging, in the process, teaching Xehanort a lesson in patience and setting him on the path for forging the X-blade the correct way. Lampshaded by Mickey. Also, [[GrandTheftMe his possession of]] [[AndIMustScream Terra]] [[KarmaHoudini was perfectly successful in the end.]] ]]
