The Hero's License (ヒーローズライセンス Hīrōzu Raisensu?), also known as Licenses (ライセンス Raisensu?), are special power-ups that appear within the Labyrinth of Olympus Coliseum, in Kingdom Hearts coded. They are obtained after minor story events and are dropped by Heartless and Prize Blox.


In Kingdom Hearts coded, the Hero's License grant the player the ability to use magic. There are several types however the player is initially limited to six.

In Kingdom Hearts Re:coded, Licenses are one-time use items that execute certain abilities. They are sorted into combat licenses, which can only be used within battle, and map licenses, which are used on the field. Only eight types of licenses can be stocked at one time, making older licenses drop if newer licenses are picked up. New varieties of Licenses are always obtained in a save room between layers, with the exception of the first Licenses collected on Layer 2. After being obtained for the first time, they may be randomly dropped after Heartless battles or from Prize Boxes. Defeating a Menace, a battle depicted in the field as a swirling pool of darkness, has a particularly high chance of yielding exceedingly rare licenses like Regen-L, Auto-Life-L, and on higher Layers, Auto-Guard-L. Some Licenses also become less common as drops on later Layers, with Scout-L and Timing-L not appearing at all after Layers 10 and 14, respectively. Power-L and Guard-L are also guaranteed to appear before the bosses on Layers 5, 15, 25, and 30.
