It can also be activated by pressing the and on the PlayStation 4 controller. Reality Shifts can be used to damage nearby enemies or to interact with the field, often allowing access to new areas. When the Reality Shift is activated, Sora or Riku dives into the bottom screen, and the action on the top screen is paused until the action is completed; furthermore, the character does not take damage until the Reality Shift is completed.
Each playable world in Dream Drop Distance has at least one Reality Shift associated with it.
