Trophies are special awards for feats of gaming skill that were introduced in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.
In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, the player does not receive a notification that they have gotten their trophy. They must check the Trinity Archives to receive notices of their trophies in the order they were obtained. They can then check the "Trophies" tab to see the trophies they have earned. Furthermore, when a player starts a new game in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix, they are asked if they want to load a save file from the original Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and are awarded Trophies and the respective Trophy Bonuses depending on which Trophies this save file contained.
In Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, each Trophy also comes with a Trophy Chip. Reaching goalposts of 2, 5, 8, 12, 16, 20, 25, and 30 Trophies will also award the player with pieces of the "King Mickey" outfits in the Avatar Menu, and collecting 20 trophies is required to unlock the secret movie, Signs of What's Next. The player does not receive their trophy when they complete its requirements; instead, they must also open the Debug Reports and select "Trophies" to receive the trophy and prizes. As such, it is in fact possible to "lose" a trophy if a player manages to undo the fulfilled requirements before collecting the trophy. In addition, the tutorial text explaining the purpose of the trophies will not appear until the player has obtained the "Twilight Triumph" trophy at the end of the game.
In Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX and Kingdom Hearts HD 2.5 ReMIX, trophies are not unlocked in-game. Instead, they use PlayStation 3's trophy system and are handled like a set of trophies for any other PlayStation 3 game. This means that they are ranked in platinum, gold, silver and bronze. Also, players are notified of their achievement moments after they unlock a trophy. Trophies have no in-game use, though they do increase the player's PlayStation Network trophy level.
