** Played entirely straight with the Mushroom family of Heartless, save for the Black Fungus. The White Mushroom, Rare Truffle, and Pink Agaricus are all friendly and never attack the player. They either need the player's help in some form or another, or are there to challenge the player in some way. If successful, they happily jump around for a bit and toss out huge rewards. The Mushroom XIII ''look'' evil, but are more or less the same. Some ''are'' more aggressive than other, but at the end of the day it's all just a challenge. Defeating all twelve of them results in the thirteenth descending down like some cute, fungusy angel to present the Winner's Proof Keyblade.

* StandardStatusEffects: In its normal state it's affected by Sora's magic the same way the undead pirates are. Blizzard freezes it in place, Fire sends it running, [[CaptainObvious on fire]], and Thunder stuns it. This carries over to its undead state, but without damage.

* BonusBoss: A minor example in the postgame of ''III'', where a lone Berserker acts as the final opponent in the Arendelle Battlegate. It's the only one in the game, but it makes up for it with how much tougher it is than its ''II'' counterparts or any Nobody encountered in the main game.



* MetalSlime: In ''III'', they only appear in a single battle gate in Arendelle where only one of this kind appear and in a massively inflated health comparable to a MiniBoss.



* TookALevelInBadass: The sole Berserker in ''III'' has the strength of a boss to make up for being the only one.



* BonusBoss: A lesser example in the postgame of ''III'', where a single Sorcerer appears at the end of the Battlegate in Twilight Town, and is much stronger and healthier than the ones in ''II''.



** BossInMookClothing: In ''III'' they're even stronger, and have a lot more health on top of that. They're also restricted only to appearing in battle gates in the postgame.

* TookALevelInBadass: In ''III'', only a single Sorcerer appears in the postgame, but it has the strength of a boss.

Added DiffLines:

* TookALevelInBadass: Sure, you've fought this guy many, many times over the course of the series. Sure, Sora now has infinite airdashes and can reach his head off a regular jump attack now. Sure, Darkside himself does not have any new moves at all. But if you're playing ''III'' on Critical mode, do NOT underestimate him.

The Shadow Stalker and Dark Thorn are the bosses of the first visit to Beast's Castle in ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII II]]''. The Shadow Stalker is a spherical pureblood Heartless wrapped in chains that is very similar in appearance to the Darkball, but it acts like a Possessor with the ability to inhabit inanimate objects. It mainly fights by taking control of the Ballroom to attack Sora and friends.

* KnightInShiningArmor: The Kyroo series of Dream Eaters. Sir Kyroo is a winged frog that wields a lily pad and cucumber-like vegetable, which gives the appearance of a knight. [[LethalChef Chef]] Kyroo gives off the same imagery, but with a chef's hat and weilding a pan and a pot lid. Lord Kyroo is a frog who is also a proper knight, wearing a cape and weilding an actual Rapier and shield. In addition to the usual movements of the other Kyroos, he blows a kiss with a visible heart coming out. He's also a BonusBoss, and the only Nightmare (if he is one) that doesn't seem to want to kill you, but rather says "I challenge thee", something the player can decline, and leaves the battle once the player deals a fair amount of damage. The actual fight has him running away pretty cowardly, ironically enough, but once defeated he gives the recipe for a spirit version of himself that fights like a proper knight. They're KnightsErrant, travelling with the player.

For example, Powerwilds and Bouncywilds make cartoonish gestures (Powerwilds clutch one foot and hop around on the other when a sliding kick is blocked); White Mushrooms and their variations are the most obvious standouts however, as they can be helpful and fun in their challenges.
