Party members (仲間キャラクター Nakama kyarakutā?, lit. "Fellow character"), or Friends in Kingdom Hearts III, are allies who fight alongside the protagonist, often with customisable behaviour, equipment, items, and abilities. They have their own HP and MP gauges, displayed above the protagonists'. Generally, a defeated party member is knocked out temporarily for a certain period of time, unless they are healed.

Cooperation characters (協力キャラクター Kyōryoku kyarakutā?) and joint struggle characters (共闘キャラクター kyōtō kyarakutā?) are similar allies who only appear during certain story sequences. Cooperation characters are distinguished by their lack of health gauges, which makes them invincible, while joint struggle characters behave identically to party members.

There are also other allies who help during certain battles to provide some sort of support, often by opening up new attacks for the protagonist to use.

Kingdom Hearts[edit]

Party members have individual stats and can be equipped with items, accessories, and weapons. Party members have different base stats, abilities, and number of item and accessory slots. Each party member has their own weapon type and cannot equip weapons of any other type. They earn experience and level up independently to Sora and are rewarded with stat boosts, new abilities, more item slots, or more accessory slots when leveling up. While Donald and Goofy are permanent party members, many worlds provide a third ally. World-specific party members have limitations as each of them has only one weapon that they can equip and leveling up solely grants stat boosts.

Only two party members can be placed in the active party at a time. A menu to swap party member positions can be accessed at Save Points and whenever a party member joins or leaves the group. This menu may also be accessed via Jack Skellington's dialogue tree after locking his world's Keyhole. Experience is granted to party members, even if they are not in the active party or they are in another world.

In battle, pressing Triangle causes party members to attack the locked-on target. There are several enemies that are never targeted by party members, including the White Mushroom, Rare Truffle, and Black Ballade.

Some characters must be present in the active party in order to carry out certain actions.

AI customization[edit]

From the "Customize" tab in the pause menu, a party member's AI can be altered to perform actions at different frequencies, which can create specialised fighting styles. There are a number of pre-made fighting styles to select: Offensive focuses on attack, Defensive concentrates on recovery and defense, Conservative preserves MP and items, and Balanced provides a mix between offense and defense. In addition, each party member has a unique Personal fighting style and with Manual, the player can create their own fighting style.

Frequencies can be set on a number of different actions and each party member has access to a particular set of actions. Each action can be set to one of three frequency levels, "Constantly", "Frequently", or "Occasionally", with the exception of the HP Items and MP Items actions which instead use "Immediately", "Frequently", and "Only in emergency".

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

Main article: Friend card

In sync with the game's card-based system, party members are replaced with Friend cards, which temporarily call allies onto the battlefield to perform attacks.

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

Party members have individual stats and can be equipped with items, armor, accessories, and weapons. Party members have different base stats, abilities, and number of item, armor, and accessory slots. They earn experience and level up independently to Sora, which reward them with stat boosts. Obtaining bonuses provide party members with further stat boosts, new abilities, and more item, armor, and accessory slots. Limits are new techniques that allow Sora to perform powerful attacks with a party member. While Donald and Goofy are permanent party members, many worlds provide a third ally. World-specific party members have limitations as each of them has only one weapon to equip and bonuses do not provide item, armor, and accessory slots.

Only two party members can be placed in the active party at a time but switching between party members is much smoother than in the original Kingdom Hearts. In the Command Menu, a "Party" command allows the player to swap out a party member on the fly, even if they are fallen. Support abilities, such as Auto Change and Auto Healing, can be equipped on party members to aid the process. Party members can also be swapped around from the "Party" tab in the pause menu. Experience is granted to party members, even if they are not in the active party or they are in another world.

AI customization[edit]

In the menu's "Customize" tab, the player can change their party members' settings. Each enabled action ability can be set to be used at a different frequency, ranging from Free (じゆうに Jiyū ni?, lit. "Freely"), Well-Balanced (バランスよく Baransu yoku?), or Rare (あんまり Anmari?, lit. "Not Often"). Like Sora, party members can enable Auto-Reload through a toggle for each item slot.

Also, each party member's behaviour can be set to a particular Battle Style (バトルスタイル Batoru Sutairu?):

  • Technic Attack (じゆうにたたかえ Jiyū ni Tatakae?, lit. "Fight Freely"): Party Members fight with their individual techniques.
  • Target Attack (いっしょにたたかえ Issho ni Tatakae?, lit. "Fight Together"): Party Members concentrate attacks on Sora's target.
  • Huddle Attack (ちかくでたたかえ Chikaku de Tatakae?, lit. "Fight Close By"): Party Members fight close to Sora.
  • Party Attack (わかれてたたかえ Wakarete Tatakae?, lit. "Fight Separately"): Party Members will fight a target other than Sora's.
  • Sora Attack (ソラにまかせろ Sora ni Makasero?, lit. "Leave It to Sora"): While Sora attacks, Party Members will support him.
  • Relentless Attack (ねらいをさだめろ Nerai o Sadamero?, lit. "Take Aim"): Party Members defeat their target before attacking another.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

Members of the Organization XIII are automatically assigned as party members on certain missions. Typically, only one party member accompanies Roxas on each mission, although Mission 56 begins with two party members and Roxas works alone for many other missions. In battle, party members physically attack enemies and cast magic. In multiplayer Mission Mode, other players are displayed as party members.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

Party members only appear during certain events in the story, similar to cooperation characters from Kingdom Hearts II. Friendship Commands are most effective within a party, especially when playing multiplayer Mirage Arena. Enemies do not grant experience if it is defeated by a party member. Some commands, like Group Cure, support party members through restoration or buffs, while other commands, such as Trinity Limit, are attacks that deal extra damage with party members.

In some sequences, an ally must be escorted through an area of Unversed. A "Damage" gauge fills up when the ally takes damage, forcing "Game Over" when full.

In the company of a party member or escorted ally, Dimension Links are disabled and several Reaction Commands may be triggered.

Kingdom Hearts coded[edit]

Only two worlds feature party members in Kingdom Hearts coded, and they each use different gameplay systems.

In Olympus Coliseum's turn-based combat Labyrinth, party members are controlled by the player in the same way as Data-Sora, although "Game Over" only occurs if Data-Sora dies. Each party member has a different special attack and amount of health.

In Hollow Bastion I, Data-Sora cannot attack and instead issues instructions to his party members. In place of Attack, the Ask for Help command cycles the party members' focus between following Data-Sora, attacking enemies, and destroying Bug Blox. Deck commands are replaced with new commands that party members carry out; a deck command's type determines which party member executes the new command. Finish commands are disabled, except Spinner Ray which can be used when both party members have joined the party. If a party member's HP is reduced to 0, they can be revived by going to them and using Rescue.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

See also: Dream Eater

Spirit Dream Eaters act as Sora and Riku's party members and are synthesized out of Dream Pieces. They each have different stats, abilities, and Ability Link boards. The new Link System allows characters to perform powerful techniques with Spirits. Only three Spirits can be brought into the party at a time and only two fight alongside Sora or Riku. Spirit positions can be changed within the party by dragging their icons around on the touch screen. Experience is only awarded to those in the party. In the "Spirits" tab of the pause menu, Spirits can be placed in and out of the party. If a Spirit's HP reaches 0, it can be revived by using Rescue within 30 seconds; failure to do so results in the Spirit reverting to a Dream Piece permanently. When selecting a New Game Plus, Spirits carry over with their stats.

In the opening battle against Ursula on the Destiny Islands, Riku acts as a cooperation member to Sora. Riku can attack with his Soul Eater and heal.

Kingdom Hearts χ[edit]

Players can form Parties with each other of up to thirty members, which allows them permanent access to each other's Friend Medals and Raid Bosses, while also allowing the Player to activate a daily 5% Lux Boost towards the party's total, participate in Weekly Party Rankings, access a Party Chat, and compare stats.

Party's can recruit unaffiliated Players, while Players can also request to join Parties. The Parties can be set to accept players automatically or at a party admin's discretion.

Kingdom Hearts III[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts III, some worlds will have two friends, and all friends remain active.

Rapunzel leaves the party after the main story of Kingdom of Corona is cleared, and she is unavailable as a friend afterwards.

During certain battles in the story, Sora will be accompanied by joint struggle characters. These characters behave identically to party members, but have fixed stats, equipment, abilities, and AI that cannot be customized.

AI customization[edit]

A party member's AI behavior can be adjusted from the "Customize" tab in the pause menu. The degree of customization is divided into three separate categories: Combat Style (バトルスタイル Batoru Sutairu?, lit. "Battle Style"), Abilities (アビリティ Abiriti?), and Recovery (回復 Kaifuku?).

"Combat Style" determines which enemies the party member targets in battle:

  • Stick By Sora (いっしょにたたかえ Issho ni Tatakae?, lit. "Fight Together"): The friend will target enemies near Sora.
  • Be Yourself (じゆうにたたかえ Jiyū ni Tatakae?, lit. "Fight Freely"): The friend will target enemies of choice. Not all friends behave the same.
  • Hands Off (ソラにまかせろ Sora ni Makasero?, lit. "Leave It to Sora"): The friend will stay out of the fight and take a supporting role instead.
  • Finish the Job (ねらいをさだめろ Nerai o Sadamero?, lit. "Take Aim"): The friend will target an enemy and stay on that enemy until it's defeated.

"Abilities" determines how frequently the party member uses abilities that consume MP.

  • Go Wild (じゆうに Jiyū ni?, lit. "Freely"): The friend will use abilities at will.
  • Watch MP (バランスよく Baransu yoku?, lit. "Well-Balanced"): The friend will balance using abilities and keeping MP in reserve.
  • Conserve (あんまり Anmari?, lit. "Not Often"): The friend will keep ability usage to a minimum.

"Recovery" determines how often the party member uses recovery items and magic. The player can also toggle between whether or not the party member will use them On Sora (ソラ Sora?, lit. "Sora"), On Self (自分 Jibun?, lit. "Oneself"), and On Others (仲間 Nakama?, lit. "Comrades"):

  • Use As Needed (よくつかう Yoku Tsukau?, lit. "Use Often"): The friend will use recovery items/magic as needed.
  • Use in Emergencies (ピンチだけ Pinchi dake?, lit. "Only in a Pinch"): The friend will use recovery items/magic in an emergency.
  • Use Like Crazy (いつもげんき Itsumo Genki?, lit. "Always Healthy"): The friend will use recovery items/magic if selected targets lose even the slightest amount of HP/MP.

Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory, there are four different teams the player can choose from that are made up of three characters. Occasionally, in certain worlds, a guest character will replace a random ally in the current team and replace certain enemies in a given level with friend orbs that net higher scores when struck, although this can be toggled on or off. A Summoning Star can summon King Mickey to join the team as a fourth member, with his design differing depending on which team he assists.
