Puzzle

From Kingdom Hearts Wiki: A world of information not accessible by Gummiship
A puzzle piece, represented by a silver crown, found at Disney Castle.

Puzzle is a sidequest minigame that was added to Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. As the name implies, the minigame consists of simple jigsaw puzzles of six different pieces of artwork that can be assembled from pieces found throughout the game. Successfully completing one of the puzzles by finding all of its pieces and correctly assembling them will result in a reward for Sora.

As Sora and his party travel throughout the various worlds, they come across puzzle pieces, represented by silver crowns. There are 144 puzzle pieces in all, and each piece will fit into one of the six puzzles. The first four puzzles consist of twelve pieces while the last two puzzles are larger and consist of forty-eight pieces apiece. The puzzles and their pieces can be accessed through Jiminy's Journal; pieces will not automatically go into the correct spot in the correct puzzle, but must be selected, moved with the left analog stick, and occasionally rotated with the right until they are in the right place.

The Puzzle solving screen, found in Jiminy's Journal.

However, some pieces Sora may be unable to get because he lacks the proper abilities. Along with the Mushroom XIII sidequest minigame which was intended to make players level up Wisdom Form, the Puzzle minigame encourages the player to level up the other Drive Forms to the highest level. Many of the puzzle pieces require Sora to know High Jump from Valor Form, Aerial Dodge from Master Form, and Glide from Final Form. Note that some of these may be obtained with the creative use of other forms' abilities (e.g. using Master Form's Aerial Dodge and an attack to reach the puzzle piece at Halloween Town's Curly Hill).

The puzzle sidequest is the model for the Sticker Album quest from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. Collectible stickers appear in the field with the same crown-like appearance as the puzzle pieces, and collecting all the stickers and placing them in the album unlocks rewards, just as completing the puzzles do.
