Code Break is a technique which appears in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. It allows the user to manipulate the base code within a digital world for a variety of effects.

Mechanics[edit]

RS Sprite Code Break KH3D.png

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, Code Break is the Reality Shift in The Grid. Upon activation, a multitude of constantly-shifting letters will appear on the touch screen, which sometimes resolve into certain word fragments of a specific color. The player must use the stylus to select the word fragments which compose the desired subroutine. Once Code Break is activated, a variety of actions can occur depending on the exact subroutine chosen. Touching outside the colored word fragments three times cancels Code Break.

In Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, the word fragments have either X, Square, Circle, or Triangle in front of it, requiring the player to press the corresponding button to select the word fragments. Pressing an input with no effect three times cancels Code Break.

List of actions[edit]

Image Name Effect Fragments
Target: Enemy
Moving Spark (Code Break RS) KH3D.png MOVING SPARK When activated, MOVING SPARK charges the target with energy and gives the player control over its movement. After a short time, or when pressing A/X, the target explodes and damages nearby enemies. MOVING
SPARK[1]
PRIZE BOX Causes the enemy to drop an Item or Deck Command. PRIZE
BOX[1]
Switch Target (Enemy) (Code Break RS) KH3D.png SWITCH TARGET When activated, SWITCH TARGET causes the target to attack its allies instead of the party for 15 seconds. Any circuit lines on the target will turn from CLU's orange to Flynn's white. SWITCH
TARGET[1]
Target: Turret
Auto Destruct (Code Break RS) KH3D.png AUTO DESTRUCT When activated, AUTO DESTRUCT immediately destroys the turret. Any enemies within a short distance of the turret will take damage.

If the turret is placed on a destructible wall, floor or glass, AUTO DESTRUCT will destroy the turret whose explosion will damage nearby enemies, and take out that destructible wall, floor, or glass, opening new paths and preventing the turret from ever respawning. AUTO DESTRUCT will also be the only subroutine available when using Code Break in this case.

DESTRUCT[2]
Prize Shot (Code Break RS) KH3D.png PRIZE SHOT When activated, turrets shoot small (unless the Forecast's effects apply where they're big instead) HP prizes, munny, or Droplets instead of lasers for 30 seconds, after which the turrets shoot regular bullets. PRIZE

Switch Target (Turret) (Code Break RS) KH3D.png SWITCH TARGET When activated, SWITCH TARGET causes the turret to indefinitely attack enemies instead of the party. SWITCH
TARGET[1]
Target: Recognizer
Transport (Code Break RS) KH3D.png TRANSPORT When activated, TRANSPORT causes the target Recognizer to stop firing and become usable for transportation, indicated by its circuit lines changing color from CLU's orange to the white associated with Users. Recognizers will remain commandeered on future visits to The Grid. TR

Target: Rinzler
Disc Jammer subroutine under Code Break DISC JAMMER When activated, DISC JAMMER prevents Rinzler from attacking with his discs for a short time. During this time, Rinzler is surrounded by a red, pixelated aura. Also returns the gravity of the arena back to normal if flipped. DISC

Target: Commantis

Learning Code Break[edit]

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

  • Sora and Riku can use Code Break when a Reality Shift is triggered in The Grid.
  1. ^ a b c d e In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, this effect appears as two fragments while in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD it appears as one fragment to select.
  2. ^ In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, AUTO DESTRUCT appears as two fragments regardless of the situation while in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance HD, AUTO DESTRUCT appears as two fragments only if no other subroutines are available, otherwise, it appears as one fragment to select.
