Gummi Blocks (KH)
There are seven broad categories of Gummi Blocks, each with a primary function regarding the Gummi Ship's performance and/or appearance. Gummi Blocks may be obtained from Treasure Chests, rewarded for completing side quests or mini-games, dropped by destroyed enemy Gummi Ships or purchased from Cid's shop in the First District.
Additionally, there are a number of tools available for purchase from Cid that facilitate Gummi Ship building or otherwise power up the ship.
A full set of all Gummi Blocks (excluding Design Gummies) is obtained after rescuing all 99 Puppies.
Gummi Blocks have several stats:
Cockpit Gummies (コクピットグミ, Kokupitto Gumi?) have various effects focused on replenishing the Armor Gauge. True to their name, the Cockpit Gummies contain the Gummi Ship's cockpit, from which Donald flies the ship; as such, a Gummi Ship must include one Cockpit Gummi in order to be flown.
Curaga-G increases the effect of Armor prizes by 1.5x, Life-G will replenish 1/4 of the Armor Gauge when it is depleted one time, and Full-Life-G fully restores the Armor Gauge once when it is depleted.
Engine Gummies (エンジングミ, Enjin Gumi?) control the speed and horsepower of the Gummi Ship, while also providing a bonus to the Armor Gauge. As such, every Gummi Ship requires at least one Engine Gummi in order to move. The Engine Gummis gradually increase in size, armor bonus, and speed range as they increase in horsepower.
Armor Gummies (シールドグミ, Shīrudo Gumi?, lit. "Shield Gummi") increase the length of the Gummi Ship's Armor Gauge, and come in eight different shapes. Each shape can be found in three strengths. Protect-G are one solid color, Shell-G have a solid trim, and Dispel-G have a jagged trim.
Wing Gummis (ウィンググミ, Wingu Gumi?) improve the maneuverability of the Gummi Ship, while also providing a bonus to the Armor Gauge. The Wing Gummis gradually increase in size and armor bonus as they increase in handling. The Wing Gummis generally come in mirrored pairs for both sides of the ship.
Special Gummis (オプショングミ, Opushon Gumi?, lit. "Option Gummi") bestow various special abilities to the Gummi Ship while also providing a bonus to the Armor Gauge.
Drain-G and Osmose-G can grab items from an extended range by tilting the right control stick, but consume energy from the Power Gauge when used. Esuna-G illuminate the objects hidden along the routes, while Scan-G display nearby enemy ships on a radar screen; the parabolic dish Scan-G can only detect enemies in the direction it is aimed at, while the omnidirectional sensor Scan-G can detect enemies in any direction. Shield-G allow the Gummi Ship to use the Shield Gauge, which incurs damage in place of the Armor Gauge until it is depleted; the basic Shield-G only protects a small region of the Gummi Ship, while the more powerful Shield2-G protects the entire ship. Haste-G allow the Gummi Ship to use the Charge Gauge, which temporarily accelerates the ship when is pressed. Warp-G allows the Gummi Ship to instantly teleport from the current world to any previously visited world, regardless of distance; it is automatically equipped to all ship designs and cannot be removed. Transform-G allows the Gummi Ship to transform from its current design into a paired design that also includes the Gummi by pressing the button.
Weapon Gummis (ウェポングミ, Wepon Gumi?) add firepower to the Gummi Ships in order to shoot down enemy ships and obstacles, while also providing a bonus to the Armor Gauge. A maximum of ten Weapon Gummis can be equipped to one ship. Weapon Gummis come as both cannons and lasers. Cannons fire projectiles using ; Thunder-G fires a projectile straight ahead, Thundara-G fires two projectiles in in a V-shaped trajectory, and Thundaga-G fires a more powerful, but slower, missile straight ahead. Lasers fire homing projectile at targeted enemies and obstacles using , but each fire consumes a portion of the Power Gauge. Comet-G fires a weak laser, Meteor-G fires a medium-strength laser that can be followed up by a quick second fusillade, and Ultima-G fires a strong laser that can pierce one or more targets up to three times.
Design Gummis are exclusive to Kingdom Hearts Final Mix. Design Gummies are mostly for decoration, although the Angel-G and Dark-G provide a bonus to handling, and the Drill-G deals damage. Most Design Gummies are obtained through completing Gummi Missions.
Extras (エクストラ, Ekusutora?) are upgrades to the Gummi Ship builder. These extras include alternate colors, a bigger building area, or more blueprints.
The Special Gummies are named after supportive or status-based spells. Drain and Osmose drain a target's HP or MP, Esuna is a spell that heals most status ailments, Scan is a spell that analyses a target's HP and weaknesses, Haste and Hastega are spells that increases the target's speed, Barrier and Wall are spells that nullifies damage, and Teleport is a spell that allows the party to escape a dungeon or battle.
