This sparks a debate between Donald and Sora, allowing Riku to sneak away. As Sora wonders where Riku went, Maleficent and Riku are shown standing on a platform above the trio.

Although disappointed in Riku's disappearance, Sora is content knowing that he is okay. Yuffie then appears, taking the trio to a strategy meeting at the secret hideout. At the meeting, Leon asks if anyone has seen Maleficent, hearing that she has arrived in town. Sora does not know the name, prompting Yuffie to reveal the cause of destruction of their home world. Aerith comments that Maleficent is possibly gathering the scattered pages of Ansem's reports, a series of studies that could potentially reveal how to defeat the Heartless. Determined to find the report's pages, Sora, Donald, and Goofy leave for their next world.

In Agrabah, Jasmine is shown fleeing from a group of Heartless lead by Jafar.

Just as Abu alerts Jasmine of Aladdin being in trouble, Jasmine is captured by the Heartless.

In the desert, Sora, Donald, and Goofy are stuck in quicksand, with a lovestruck Aladdin distracted by thoughts of Jasmine. Eventually returning to the moment, Aladdin summons the Genie of the lamp to save the trio.

After being rescued by Genie, Sora asks Aladdin why he is out in the middle of the desert. Aladdin explains how he was searching for legendary treasure in the Cave of Wonders, which is how he came to possess the magic lamp. Genie interrupts, reminding his new master of his remaining two wishes. Aladdin intends to use his second wish to become a wealthy prince so he can propose to Jasmine. Saving the wish for his return to Agrabah, Genie comments about his lack of freedom. This leads to Aladdin promising to use his final wish to free Genie.

Also in the desert is Abu riding the magic Carpet, searching for Aladdin.

As the Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Aladdin fend off the Heartless, Jafar sneaks Jasmine away inside a Pot Spider. Before the group can attempt to save her, they are squashed by a Fat Bandit and fall through a hole in the ground. Now alone, Jafar uses his first wish to find the Keyhole. A few floors below, the group hurries up flights of stairs, following the path the lead by Sora's Keyblade. At the world's Keyhole, Jafar notes that alongside Genie, the two can rule the world together. Maleficent then appears, preparing to take Jasmine away. Before she can do so, the group arrives. Aladdin pleads Genie to save Jasmine, only to no avail. Maleficent leaves, taking Jasmine along with her. Jafar's second wish pits Genie against his friends. Although compliant, Genie's attempt is only halfway in effort. Angered at the lack of proper punishment, Jafar uses his final wish to become an all-powerful genie. While Jafar basks in his new-found power, Sora retrieves Jafar's lamp from Iago and successfully seals the villain away.

After defeating Jafar, the trio discovers a page of Ansem's report. Genie takes Jafar's lamp and begins to bury it. Meanwhile, Sora locks Agrabah's Keyhole. Once the Keyhole is sealed, the cave begins to collapse. Sora, Goofy, and Donald jump onto the magic Carpet, while Aladdin refuses to leave, worried about Jasmine. After revealing Jasmine was taken to another world, Sora convinces Aladdin and Abu to join them on the magic Carpet. As the group makes their way towards the cave's exit, Goofy is thrown off of the Carpet, forcing Aladdin to use his second wish to save him.

Back at Aladdin's House, Donald scolds Sora for breaking the world order. Aladdin is not permitted to go with the trio, leading Genie to suggest using his final wish to find Jasmine. Aladdin uses his third wish for Genie's freedom. Promising to find Jasmine, Sora is given Genie's old lamp in case they need his help.

KH Manga 24a.png
Maleficent visits Riku, inviting the teen to join their group. Riku agrees, just as a sleeping Kairi is shown. In the hallway, Hades comments how Maleficent has been spending a lot of attention to Riku. Hades continues, suggesting that the witch is hiding something from the other members. Maleficent makes no comment, instead walking away.

Back on the Gummi Ship, Sora, Donald, and Goofy fax Cid the page of Ansem's report they found. Cid informs that group that certain people in various worlds have been kidnapped. After detailing their adventure in Agrabah, Cid signs off, instructing the group to keep sealing the Keyholes.

After landing on the new world, Jiminy informs the group of the fighting tournament held at the Coliseum. Ignoring Donald's words, Sora rushes inside, finding Phil. Phil, distracted with his work, mainly ignores Sora, ordering him to move the nearby pedestal. After several failed attempts, Sora declares that the pedestal is too heavy. Thinking Sora to be Hercules, Phil turns around. Phil refuses to permit the trio to participate in the games until they obtain an Entry Pass. Back outside, Hades gives Sora an Entry Pass. Phil accepts the Entry Pass and begins to train Sora, Donald, and Goofy.

Meanwhile, Cloud is shown alongside Hades. Hades orders Cloud to defeat not just Hercules, but Sora as well. As Cloud leaves, Cerberus is shown behind Hades.

Back in the Underworld, Hades reveals that after the demise of Sora and Hercules, he will use the Keyblade to free the Titans and become the ruler of the world.

The trio successfully climb their way up the game's ranks, eventually leading to the semi-final match against Cloud. The fight is interrupted by Cerberus, forcing everyone to flee. Back inside the Vestibule, Phil and the others wait. After hearing a scream, Sora rushes back inside the arena to help Hercules. Sending Hercules away, the group prepares to face Cerberus.

In the first slide series, Sora calls upon Genie for help on opening a jar of food. In the second and fourth set, Aerith offers Leon lemonade and soda mixed with other flavors. In the third group, Cid accidentally sleeps for eighteen hours. In the fifth and final set, Hades humorously alters a Hercules action figure. 

Featured Worlds[edit]

Differences[edit]

  • Because it was retconed from game continuity due to the estate of Edgar Rice Burroughs pulling back the rights, Deep Jungle is excluded from the manga adaptation.
  • Rather than tossing the Keyblade back to Sora, Riku causes it to re-materialize in Sora's hands.
  • The destruction of Radiant Garden is covered with more detail, including a scene with Leon, Yuffie, and Aerith as children.
  • Aerith does not appear until Sora's second visit to Traverse Town.
  • The order of worlds post Wonderland differs from the order in game. Instead of heading to either Olympus Coliseum or Deep Jungle (which is omitted and retconed), the group returns to Traverse Town. This variation continues with Agrabah, then Olympus Coliseum, and finally Monstro.
  • Aladdin uses his first wish to save Sora and his friends from a pit of quicksand, rather than to eliminate a swarm of Heartless. He uses his second wish to save Goofy, not Jasmine.
  • Sora, Donald, and Goofy never visit Agrabah, they head straight to the Cave of Wonders.
  • The Pot Centipede does not appear
  • Maleficent takes Jasmine, rather than Riku.
  • Abu's vocal sounds are subtitled with actual lines.
  • Cid communicates with the trio by a video transmission.
