Lexaeus appears as a boss in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, and Kingdom Hearts Union χ.

Strategy[edit]

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

Lexaeus's moves consist of him hitting the ground, tilting the arena, stunning Riku and one Sleight. He also has a solid defense that prevents him from flinching when taking damage, though he does flinch after receiving a card break. Try to dodge his Rockshatter sleight by dashing behind him, then card break it. First focus on card breaking Lexaeus's cards to turn into Dark Mode and use sleights to deal heavy damage. Use MM Miracles or the Oogie Boogie card if low on HP. Use sleights while he is charging the reload card so he can't card break Riku, unless he is low on DP, then use as many sleights as possible.

Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories[edit]

Intro of the fight against Lexaeus in RECOM
Lexaeus about to fight against Riku in Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories.

In Kingdom Hearts: Re:Chain of Memories, most of Lexaeus's attacks are similar. He repeatedly strikes the ground and jagged rocks shoot up, attempting to impale Riku. A new attack is when Lexaeus starts to emit a yellow aura, during which his strength is temporarily increased, as well as his defense to which he doesn't flinch when taking damage. Using Dark Aura there can deal even more damage. He can do this a second time while it is already in effect, emitting a red aura, gaining another boost and becomes temporarily invulnerable to all attacks except card duel sleights. These buffs also replace his sleight with another, stronger one.

His first card is usually an eight, as is Riku's, so he has an immediate opportunity for a card duel. Use all the card duel opportunities as possible, as they do a lot of damage (one and a half bars). Focus on breaking his cards and then go in for the combos, because he will smash Riku with his axe sword if he gets too close. After the first card break or combo, Lexaeus will use his Enemy Card, use Parasite Cage to negate the effect, since it causes his Combo Attack to be able to stun him. If choosing to focus on attacking him, Riku will have to side step every time Lexaeus attacks, to avoid being stunned. Use Dodge Roll to pick up Mickey cards. Use the Enemy Cards Maleficent (to power up cards) and Oogie Boogie (if low on HP). Another option is to wait for his attacks and try to card duel him; after the card duel, recharge the deck and repeat.

Since his power up can be fatal if allowed to go through, a good approach to the battle is to prevent him from being able to power up, but beware that all of his magic cards are valued 9, and thus Riku will have to use his 0s or 9s or stack cards to break them. The player should use Sleights, preferably through the lower valued cards (although it is still recommended to leave a few). Through this method, Lexaeus not only will be prevented from powering up but also from attacking, while accumulating DP quick. Once the player enters Dark Mode, the player should assault Lexaeus with Sleights, such as Dark Aura or Dark Break (hence why to leave a few low valued cards, otherwise a 0-7-7 combo can also work). These, in conjunction with the Maleficent Card, will deal a large amount of damage quick all the while stunning Lexaeus, thus greatly simplifying the battle. In order to optimize the damage dealt by Dark Aura, Riku may wait until Lexaeus charges to his yellow aura to then perform Dark Aura, preferably on a Rapid Break, so that Lexaeus won't stagger while taking all hits, for the reason that when Lexaeus isn't under the Charge status, Dark Aura knocks him back after each strike and can cause him to accidentally avoid one strike or two. Beware of any cardbreak in the meantime, and alternatively use this tactic along with Jafar Enemy Card if in need for safety.

When using Charge twice, Lexaeus gains a red aura, becomes invulnerable (excluding Duels and certain hits of Holy Burst and Inverse Burst), can use Ground Impact, and his Combo Attack covers more range.

After taking around 5 card breaks, Lexaeus loses his current state of the Charge status: reverts to the yellow Charge if it was red or loses all Charge if it was yellow.

Both the rocks and the debris deal damage. The attack can be avoided by side-stepping the moment the rocks break, or by double jumping in Dark Mode.

The range of the attack can be altered if Riku prevents Lexaeus from moving to the center of the arena by getting in his way.

Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix[edit]

Absent Silhouette[edit]

During this battle, Sora and Lexaeus have a special power meter. Sora's power level is capped at 100, whereas Lexaeus steadily increases his power level throughout the fight, up to a maximum of 99999. As Lexaeus's power rises, his attack power, range, and defense increase.

Lexaeus's Absent Silhouette
Lexaeus's Absent Silhouette engaging in combat.

Lexaeus has several moves in his arsenal. In one, he performs a Helm Split attack and leaps upwards and slams the ground with his Skysplitter; evade this attack using Reflect or Dodge Roll. In another, he performs Impact Quake and hurls the Skysplitter up into the air and punches the ground twice before the Skysplitter lands back down in his grasp, of which it is then slammed into the ground on the third attack, each time causing rocks to erupt from the ground. The finisher is the most powerful of the three, but comes with an exploitable delay, allowing Sora to predict when to Dodge Roll. In the third attack, Lexaeus performs Mow Down and drags the Skysplitter on the ground to strike Sora. Blocking this attack with Guard or Reflect creates the opportunity to use the Mega-Impact Reaction command. When this command is used, Sora temporarily increases his power level by Lexaeus's current power level and strikes Lexaeus, stripping him of his aura and stunning him; the stronger the power level, the longer Lexaeus stays stunned. After the Reaction Command is complete, Sora loses the power bonus.

Lexaeus steadily boosts his power level as his health dwindles. When increasing his power, he gains a red aura and pushes the party back. At higher power, Lexaeus's attacks gain further properties. For instance, when he uses Mow Down, the attack has more range on higher levels. Lexaeus can also Tackle at Sora, throw him against a stone pillar, and hurl his aura-infused Skysplitter at Sora. Alternately, he can perform a Spin Throw, grab Sora, throw him skyward, and slam him to the ground while pillars of earth erupt around the arena. Both attacks can be nullified by a Reflect spell used once, and Sora can land a combo without fear of getting grabbed.

Lexaeus's ultimate attack, Earthen Fury, involves him flying outside the arena for a number of seconds, before charging back into the arena. He finishes his attack by causing rocks to erupt over the entire arena. Sora should guard the charge and cast Reflect; alternately, High Jump and Glide around the arena.

Data Rematch[edit]

Data Lexaeus before battling Sora in the Garden of Assemblage.
Lexaeus's Replica Data appears before Sora in the Garden of Assemblage.

The Data Rematch plays out nearly identically to the Absent Silhouette battle. Lexaeus's health has greatly increased, and begins the fight with higher power.

To defeat the Data Replica, Sora should use the same strategy he used when taking on the original Absent Silhouette. However, while Sora has access to much more abilities than he had when taking down the Silhouette, Lexaeus is much stronger, and can employ countermeasures as well. Sora however needs to finish him quickly after Lexaeus used Earthen Fury, otherwise his power will keep growing, reaching 99999, making all of his attacks deadly.
