Flare Force is a recurring technique introduced in Kingdom Hearts II. It allows Sora and Donald to team up and unleash Donald's Duck Flare spell.


In Kingdom Hearts II, Flare Force is an action ability exclusive to Donald. It costs 3 AP to equip and all of Sora's MP to use. The first attack of the Limit is Duck Flare (ドナフレア Dona Furea?, lit. "Dona-Flare"), where Donald casts a barrage of orange and blue colored rockets in front of Sora. Then, the Reaction Command slot is occupied by the Rocket Flare (ロクフレア Roku Furea?) attack, in which Donald calls forth a series of rockets that seek out targets, can be used up to five times. After four uses of Rocket Flare[3], it is replaced by the finishing move, Megaduck Flare (メガドナフレア Megadona Furea?, lit. "Megadona-Flare"), will then become available, in which Donald calls forth a barrage of rockets to attack one target and the enemies surrounding it. From the start, the finishing move is available in the "Limit" slot of the Command Menu, but its activation ends the limit prematurely. While the Limit attack is active, Donald is carried by Sora, who can attack and move around freely.

In Kingdom Hearts III, Flare Force is a Team Attack Situation Command used by Donald and Sora. Donald and Sora summon a series of sixteen rockets that seek out random targets and launch them skyward, similar to Megaduck Flare in Kingdom Hearts II. The projectiles damage enemies twice, once on impact and once from the explosion. The attack deals more damage when used against nearby targets. Donald and Sora are invincible while using Flare Force.
