Mission 50: Vanquish the Heartless threat
An unidentified giant Heartless has surfaced in Beast's Castle. Find it and eliminate it at once.
Roxas is sent to Beast's Castle to eliminate yet another Heartless boss. After defeating the Heartless threat, Roxas learns of love - through the Beast's unyielding protection for Belle. As Roxas watches the Beast and Belle talk, Xaldin appears and tells Roxas that love is a weakness.
You start in the Ballroom, work your way around the room defeating Heartless and opening the two chests. Exit the Ballroom to reach the Entrance Hall, immediately jump up to reach the Ordeal Blazon floating above the steps. Continue defeating Heartless and unlocking chests. If you prefer to save your strength and magic for the upcoming boss battle, you may skip defeating the small-fry Heartless in the Ballroom and Entrance Hall. Leave the Entrance Hall when you're finished and go to the Courtyard.
Here you will find the Unity Badge to the right of the entrance (near the secret entrance). Proceed towards the gates to watch a short cutscene, then continue on to the Bridge, where you will find the Heartless threat.
Once the Infernal Engine is defeated, you can continue to the end of the Bridge and get the Ordeal Badge. With the boss defeated and all treasures obtained, its time to RTC. Return back to the Courtyard to see a cutscene between the Beast and Belle, showing their love for each other. After the cutscene is over, the mission will end automatically.
This mission will be easier to complete after finishing Story Mode. You'll want to have Glide and Haste equipped, as well as Thunder and Thundara magic. Skip all Heartless battles inside the castle, and hurry to the Bridge. Use your magic to attack both the Infernal Engine and the lesser Heartless on top. Fight the boss as efficiently as you can, attacking the battering ram when it is exposed, and deflecting its cannon shots. Alternatively, using close range attacks and deliberately getting hit to use Limit Breaks is also useful as long as you have a high level with a Keyblade with high attack power, and the Auto-Life, Final Limit and Limit Boost panels equipped. If necessary, use a Limit Recharge. Since you do not have to fully backtrack to your original entry point after defeating Infernal Engine, this can also help save time.
