* BalanceBuff: The animation for using items in battle - such as Potions - is a lot shorter than ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', making them much easier to utilize without getting interrupted.

Added DiffLines:

** After Oogie Boogie is knocked off of his platform for the first time, his machine starts producing Heartless. They make dodging the boss' painful but predictable attacks a lot harder and are quite capable of taking you out on their own, meaning you can't afford to ignore them.
** Demyx will start off his boss fight by using his sitar to conjure up watery clones of himself. Beating them is required, as they are accompanied by a timer that will cause a NonStandardGameOver if it runs out before they're all dead.

** The Twilight Thorn will summon Creepers to assist it once the second stage of the fight has started (i.e. after the first round of Reaction Commands). They aren't a huge threat since they are easily avoided, though they can be dispatched quickly to grab HP Orbs to restore Roxas's health.
** During the back-to-back fights against Pete in Olympus Coliseum, several species of Heartless will occasionally spawn to assist him. They are actually more dangerous than Pete if playing on Critical, as a couple do a large amount of damage and they can overwhelm Sora with pure numbers.

* HoldTheLine: The game is fond of using this for the 'smack around waves of enemies' sections, except the Heartless / Nobodies are rarely a serious threat to whatever you're protecting (even when you're at level 1).

* DevelopersForesight: The Cavern of Remembrance in ''Final Mix'' is split up into several platforming areas that [[AbilityRequiredToProceed require maxed out Growth abilities to proceed]], with the last of these area necessitating Glide (obtained from leveling up Final Form). If the player cheats to get Glide before beating Roxas (the trigger that allows access to Final Form) and goes to the end of the Glide room, they will find an invisible wall that prevents passage into the last part of the Cavern until Roxas is defeated.

* AbilityRequiredToProceed: The Cavern of Remembrance in ''Final Mix'' cannot be fully explored until all Growth abilities are maxed out (done via leveling up the Drive Forms), as there are some instances of platforming that require their specialized movement.

If the player cheats to get these abilities early, they will find that the end of the Glide room has an invisible wall to prevent passage until Roxas is defeated.

* MundaneMadeAwesome: Opening big chests involves Sora/Roxas tossing the keyblade into the air then hitting the chest, all the while whooshing sounds and dramatic camera movements add to the mood. Said big chests will usually contain powerful one-of-a-kind armor, charms that will grant new summons, torn pages for the Hundred Acre Wood, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking or area maps]].

** Magic overall has been heavily weakened since ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI''. Casting times are longer (especially if done in midair) unless you're in a Drive Form, you get less uses before you run out of MP, and MP can no longer be restored by hitting enemies with melee attacks.
