Type A and Type B Save Points as they appear in Kingdom Hearts.

Save Points, also called Save Spots, are places within worlds that any playable character can use, with the exception of Sora's Heartless in Kingdom Hearts and King Mickey in Kingdom Hearts II. Upon standing on one, the player can save the progress they have made in their travels, fully restore their HP and MP, and in Kingdom Hearts, organize the party. Save Points are dispersed throughout the worlds, usually every three or four rooms (enemies such as Heartless and Nobodies usually do not spawn in these rooms), as a tracker. There are some exceptions, however, where rooms with Save Points may be infested with enemies—such as the Rabbit Hole in Wonderland and the Palace Courtyard in Castle of Dreams. This Save Point will not appear until all enemies are defeated.


Appearances[edit]

Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts II, and Kingdom Hearts coded[edit]

Type A and Type B Save Points as they appear in Kingdom Hearts II.

Save Points are divided into two types; Type A and Type B.

Type A and Type B Save Points as they appear in Kingdom Hearts Re:coded.

Type A Save Points remain throughout the game, regardless of how far the player has progressed in the storyline. In addition to the regular features of the Save Points, some Type A Save Points also serve as a link between the Gummi Ship and the world currently being visited, meaning that once activated (by touching them for the first time), one can teleport from the Save Point to the Gummi Ship and vice versa. In Kingdom Hearts II, these may become temporarily inaccessible because of the storyline, and will have to be re-activated later.

Type B Save Points are in some cases only temporary and will therefore sometimes disappear as the player progresses in the storyline. Unlike the Type A Save Points, these may or may not not serve as links to the Gummi Ship (e.g. In Kingdom Hearts, the Save Points in Wonderland: Queen's Castle and Rabbit Hole are both Type B, but both of them are main Save Points which transport the player to the Gummi Ship). They do have all the other functions of a Save Point though.

However within Kingdom Hearts coded, Save Points will always stay in their place not disappearing. Save Points lead to the choice of going to World Selection where you can go to other Worlds and replay the episode or do a Free Quest. You can also choose to go back to the Main Menu or go to the Camp Menu.

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, save points are accessed through a card known as "Moment's Reprieve". They can be used in any room except for story rooms and boss rooms. Save points are also found on the entrance to every floor of Castle Oblivion, as well as the last room after a boss fight, Conqueror's Respite.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, save points do not appear. Instead, players can press the start button to open the main menu, where they can then go to "Save Game". This can only be done outside of missions in the Grey Room, or in Twilight Town before the battle with Xion on Day 357.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

Save Points A and B as they appear in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.

Both types of Save Point appear in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, although their appearance differs from earlier depictions. The Save Point A, which only appears in the Land of Departure, consists of four orbs of light orbiting above the Save Point, while Save Point Bs only have two orbs of light.

According to Ventus, the function of the save points is to record what has happened to their user. They also allow the user to access their Command Boards.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, there is only one kind of save point which has two light orbs orbiting the save point; however, they cross each other and go in diagonal lines up and down the save point, rather than circular above the save point. The save point also gives the user the option to Drop to the next character.

World Map[edit]

In Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, the World Map functions as a Save Point by pressing Start.

Introduced in Kingdom Hearts II, a character's face would appear on the save file, depending on the player's progression through the story, or the story mode being played.
