* LethalJokeItem: The Sweet Memories keyblade. It has no attack or magic stats at all and its range is pitiful, making it less than lethal, but it has the Lucky Lucky ability, which boosts the drop rates of items, invaluable when farming synthesis materials. ''Final Mix'' gives it the new ability Drive Converter, which makes enemies drop drive orbs instead of munny, invaluable for leveling up Drive Forms, especially Master Form which gains exp as you collect drive orbs.

* LimitedSpecialCollectorsUltimateEdition: ''Final Mix'', which already includes a ton of extra content compared to vanilla ''Kingdom Hearts II'', is topped by ''Final Mix+'', which contains on top of that a remake of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories''. While the latter eventually made it to North America as a standalone game, neither ''Final Mix'' nor ''Final Mix+'' were released outside of Japan until a ''third'' UpdatedRerelease: ''Kingdom Hearts HD II.5 [=ReMIX=]''.

* MoodWhiplash: Congratulations! You've just defeated Xemnas, for good this time, and Sora, Riku and Kairi have all gotten home safely. And now they've got all new adventures to go on. Cue the ominous images of three people in armor, in somewhere filled with a ''lot'' of abandoned keyblades. And what's with the unnerving piano music...?

* RewatchBonus: Go back and play this after playing KH3D and Birth By Sleep. Some plot holes get cleared up. Others lead to massive FridgeHorror and FridgeBrilliance.
* {{Retcon}}: The Ansem from previous games wasn't the real deal, but an impostor who was also the Heartless of a man named Xehanort. The real Ansem is a good guy that Xehanort banished to the Realm of Darkness 9 years before the events of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI''.
** At YenSid's tower Goofy says that Mickey banished Pete from Disney Town. ''Birth By Sleep'' retcons this into ''Minnie'' banishing Pete. This makes sense with DDD revealing that Minnie is the royal one and more than has the authority to do that.
* {{Retraux}}: Timeless River is one big homage to the [[UsefulNotes/TheGoldenAgeOfAnimation oldest]] Disney shorts. The art style resembles old Disney cartoons, the entire level is in black and white, and most of the audio is in a grainy mono (with large amounts of static in the ''HD Final [=ReMIX=]'' version).

** Completion in certain areas, such as the Hundred Acre Wood and Atlantica is not required to clear the game. Despite this, if you beat the game without clearing these areas, you will still see happy cutscenes of resolution in the credits as if you had.

* HitodamaLight: Small balls of bluish-white flames float aimlessly and harmlessly through the underworld. Sora can [[RewardingVandalism smash them for money and health.]] Think about what this means.

* ArtisticLicense-Physics: Sometimes the rules of Physics like to take a day off. When facing Xemnas they go get popcorn. Highlights include: Flying, running upside buildings, fighting literally nowhere, using the keyblade to cut buildings in multiple pieces from far away with clean cuts, hitting the pieces towards Xemnas, walking on literally nothing (again), and knockback.

In the World That Never Was, Riku joins your party after what's left of Xehanort's Heartless is removed from his heart.

** Most levels have a mini-game or two; skateboarding in [[Film/PiratesOfTheCaribbean Port Royal]] is not what one would expect to do there, for instance.

* BonusFeatureFailure: Unbeknownst to most players, pressing the Select button activates a First-Person mode. It works fine, except the game is forced back into third-person whenever a Reaction Command is activated, making playing only in first-person practically impossible.

** When visiting Kanga's house in the Hundred Acre Wood and playing its' mini-game, you can see the valley of butterflies in the background from ''WesternAnimation/PoohsGrandAdventure''.
