Trivia

A World based on The Jungle Book (1967), was to appear in this game, but was taken out for timing constraints and similarities to the jungle located in the Neverland (Peter Pan (1953)) World. The World was also supposed to appear in the original Kingdom Hearts (2002), but was taken out there due to similarities to the Deep Jungle (Tarzan (1999)) World. The World can still be accessed in this game's code (in the Japanese Version anyway), with areas such as King Louie's throne room, a mountainside on the way to the Man Village, and a river with giant lily flowers to cross to play in.

Goofs

In Kingdom Hearts 2, Goofy tells Sora that King Mickey banished Pete to another dimension for his mischief. In this game, we see that it was actually Queen Minnie who ordered Pete's banishment. See more »

Quotes

Master Eraqus: [to Terra and Aqua] Today, you will be examined for the mark of mastery. Not one but two of the Keyblade's chosen stand before me as candidates... but this is neither a competition or a battle for supremacy, not a test of wills, but a test of heart. Both of you may prevail, or neither. But I am certain our guest, Master Xehanort, did not travel all this way to see our youngest prospects in years fall short of the mark.

The best KH game
28 December 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Oh how I love me some Kingdom Hearts.This is by far the best out of them all.The beginning of the game lets you choose out of three characters.Terra(strong but he has trouble with the darkness inside him.),Aqua(A brave fighter who always puts her friends first.),Ven(Looks a lot like a much better character named Roxas).The story is really good and the combat has improved a great deal.The setup of the combat system has a lot of depth to because you can choose what attacks and magics you equip to your deck.(spoilers) The best story in my opinion is Terra's.We see him struggle with the darkness inside him and I really enjoyed watching his journey on becoming Xehanort.9/10
