Abilities in Kingdom Hearts Re:coded are much like the format within Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. However, you will require Status Chips which will link the ability panels to CPU panels. Though, once abilities are received they can be leveled up when another ability panel of the same ability is linked to a CPU panel.
Stat Matrix abilities
Stat Matrix abilities are abilities which are gotten by the use of linking with Status Chips, these chips will help level up your Magic, Strength, resistance and magic power.
Clock abilities are passive abilities that can be used by Data-Sora by increasing his Keyblade's clock gauge's level. For every time the clock gauge's level is increased, an Overclock ability is activated. Additional Overclock abilities can be obtained by leveling up the Keychain.
