The wiki contains spoilers

The Kingdom Hearts Wiki maintains the policy of documenting all information about the Kingdom Hearts universe in an "omniscient" point of view. When using the Kingdom Hearts Wiki, you will find that every article contains as complete and thorough information as is possible. If you do not wish to have the details of any Kingdom Hearts storyline spoiled for you, it would be best if you did not use the Kingdom Hearts Wiki until you have finished playing or reading through the storyline.
