The Finest Fantasy 13 is a joke deck of Cards available to Luxord in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days.

Design[edit]

A "card" from the Finest Fantasy 13 deck looks like an enormous compact disc, presumably a game disc. It is predominantly silver and has a white border. The upper half of a black Nobody sigil is present on the right half of the disc, and there is a small, white diamond on the tip on the left spike. There is a black Roman numeral 13 (XIII) on the upper left side.

Finest Fantasy 13 is one of only four of Luxord's weapons whose name is not drawn from one of twenty-two cards that make up a Tarot deck's Major Arcana. The others are The Joker, Fair Game, and High Roller's Secret.

The name "Finest Fantasy 13" is a play on the term "Final Fantasy"; "Ultimate Illusion" as a play on "Final Fantasy" has also been used in Final Fantasy XII as a move used by Gilgamesh. Also the name "Finest Fantasy 13" is a clear reference to Final Fantasy XIII, a Final Fantasy game released for the PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 within the same year as Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. The name may also be a reference to the compilation, Finest Fantasy for Advance.

According to Tetsuya Nomura in the Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days Ultimania, this weapon was originally intended to be named "Ultimate Delusion 13" (究極妄想13 Kyūkyoku Mōsō 13?), but the idea was scrapped due to the complaints of the overseas translators.[citation needed]

Gameplay[edit]

Finest Fantasy 13's normal ground combo starts with a narrow spray of "cards" forwards and ends with an upward spiral of "cards". The Y combo can be activated after the first attack, and consists of Luxord performing a spinning leap, surrounded in an upward spiral of "cards", followed by riding a larger version of one the "cards" like a surfboard while performing a forward 360° spinning attack with larger versions of the "cards" held in each hand.

The aerial combo consists of Luxord throwing his "cards" forwards in a boomerang-like fashion, followed by a spinning leap, surrounded in an upward spiral of "cards", and ends by riding a larger version of one the "cards" like a surfboard while performing a forward 360° spinning attack with larger versions of the "cards" held in each hand.
