Medals are a gameplay element in Kingdom Hearts Union χ. They are used to boost the player's Strength and Defense, as well as grant access to passive and active Special Attacks.
Medals are the physical manifestation of power from the future, drawn by the Book of Prophecies.
Medals are divided into eight groups: Attack Medals, EXP Medals, Boost Medals, Cost Medals, Evolve Medals, Sell Medals, Trait Medals, and Subslot Medals. They can be categorized by rarity based on their Special Attack Bonus.
Attack Medals can be equipped to Keyblades and come in one of three attributes: Power (パワー, Pawā?), Speed (スピード, Supīdo?), or Magic (マジック, Majikku?), as well as either Upright (アップライト, Appuraito?) or Reversed (リバース, Ribāsu?). They determine the player's Strength and Defense stats, have different sets of abilities, and are preferred by certain Keyblades. A full deck consists of six Attack Medals. Each player can also share one Attack Medal for others to use as a seventh Medal.
EXP Medals provide experience for Attack Medals and are used to boost their power. EXP Medals are represented by Huey, Dewey, and Louie. Players cannot equip EXP Medals; they can only be sold or fused with Attack Medals. EXP Medals with the same attribute as the Attack Medal provide more experience. Scrooge McDuck appears as special EXP Medals that offer experience and add a Skill to the Attack Medals with which they are fused.
Boost Medals increase Attack Medals' stats and are represented by Chip and Dale. Boost Medals with the Magic Mirror on them increase Attack Medals' Special Attack Bonus by 1%, while Mickey and Magic Broom Medals increase an Attack Medal's Special Attack Bonus.
Cost Medals are represented by Cid and decrease the Cost of 6★ and 7★ Attack Medals. They can be fused to form stacks of five or 10 that reduce an Attack Medal's Cost stat by the same amount.
Evolve Medals are used to evolve Attack Medals. Evolve medals with the Cheshire Cat on them are used to evolve 1★ Attack Medals, those with Merlin on them are used to evolve 2★ Attack Medals, those with the Fairy Godmother on them are used to evolve 3★ Attack Medals, those with Yen Sid on them are used to evolve 4★ Attack Medals, those with Fantasia Mickey on them are used to evolve 5★ Attack Medals, and those with the Blue Fairy on them are used to evolve 6★ Medals. Certain Medals can be evolved to Supernova by using Evolve Medals with Meow Wow on them. Evolve Medals are paired with Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather medals to evolve 4★ and 5★ Attack Medals. Only Medals of the same attribute can be fused to allow evolution.
Trait Medals appear as monochrome versions of Attack Medals, and can be used to add a Trait to the matching Medal.
Upright Medals depict heroic characters and are bronze, silver, or gold in coloration. Reversed Medals depict antagonistic characters and are dark blue, purple, or red in coloration.
