* UselessUsefulSpell: Zantetsuken. You would think the single strongest finishing move in the series would be as equally devastating in this game, right? Not exactly. It requires three 9 Cards to perform, which are the second most expensive card value to equip (but makes the attack nigh-unbreakable). Its effect does absolutely worthless damage and, if used to break a card, prevents that card from being used for the rest of the battle. It has its uses in boss fights, but outside of that there is no reason to use the Sleight ever.

** Gets [[LampshadedTrope lampshaded]] after Sora gets through Floor 9 as Goofy and Donald look around, wondering where Riku is and assuming in the end that he got tired of fighting Sora.

** Marluxia's third form in the remake has a nasty version of this: one of his attacks actually ejects all the cards from your deck and scatters them around the arena, rendering you completely powerless until you can pick a few up.

** Donald's Friend Card and associated Sleights have him cast two spells randomly selected from Fire/Fira/Firaga, Blizzard/Blizzara/Blizzaga, Thunder/Thundara/Thundaga, and Cure/Cura/Curaga, with potential double-casting of one spell. You could have scenarios when he would cast Cure on you two times in a row when you're at full health, not heal you when you actually need, and use spells on enemies that heal off of them (i.e. Blizzard on Blue Rhapsody Heartless).

* NoPronunciationGuide: English-speaking players of the text-only GBA version were very surprised upon playing the fully-voiced remake to learn that Marluxia was actually pronounced "Mar-loo-sha".

** For Sora players, Simba. Simba is very useful in the game boy advance version because he hits everyone "in front of" him (which, in the game boy advance's view, is basically "In the direction he's facing"). Thus with good positioning you'll have an attack that can't miss and can knock enemies around. By the time you fight Larxene the first time, you'll have to put him in a sleight for him to hold up though.

''Chain of Memories'' was later remade as a UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 game (titled ''Re:Chain of Memories'') as part of the [[NoExportForYou Japan-only]] release of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII: Final Mix+''. It was (much later) released as a standalone [=PS2=] game in North America. [[NoExportForYou Europe and Australia never got it]], but did get ''Kingdom Hearts HD I.5 Re[=MIX=]'', which contains ''Re:Chain of Memories'' remastered in HD. The remake replaces the 2D sprite art with 3D graphics, has voice-acted cutscenes instead of pure text with small voice clips, adds a new form for the FinalBoss, includes some new Attack Cards based off of Keyblades and Enemy Cards based off the Organization XIII members that appear in ''Kingdom Hearts II'', made small tweaks to the battle system such as adding or removing some sleights, and completely removed the PlayerVersusPlayer mode. The ''HD I.5 Re[=MIX=]'' version is mostly identical to the the [=PS2=] remake, but has higher graphics resolution, UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 trophy support, and replaces the Attack Cards of the ''II'' Keyblades with some from ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2''.

** For Sora, it's Card Points (CP). The more CP he has, the more cards he can put into his deck and the more powerful the level of cards he can put into his deck at a time. This leads to being able to use more and more Sleights and Enemy cards in combat with ease.
** For Riku, it's Attack Points (AP), since unlike Sora he can't raise his damage through better attack cards and new sleights. Dark Points (DP) run a close second, as once Riku is in Dark Mode he has increased speed, can utilize several powerful sleights, and deals more damage. His three-hit combo even has the power to stun with the second hit. DP increase the length of time (reduced by damage and card breaks taken) that Riku is allowed to remain in Dark Mode.

* CrypticConversation: Just about everything the Organization members say to Sora until late in the game is very cryptic and they avoid actually answering his questions, particularly those about Riku and King Mickey. Justified, [[spoiler:as they're simply trying to get Sora to stay in Castle Oblivion as long as possible so they can brainwash him.]] When Sora finally finds out what's going on, the remaining members drop this.
