This article lacks: Each mini-game section needs a short paragraph of basic tips. Describe moves with more detail, link to wikipedia if it's a real technique. Correct Jiminy Objectives based on Journal. Appearance section describing each Skateboard. Correct any errors in mini-game descriptions, and identify what the mini-game arena is based on Kingdom Hearts Wiki talk:Project World.

The skateboard is a prop in Kingdom Hearts II. It can be ridden by both Roxas and Sora, and appears in Twilight Town, Hollow Bastion, Olympus Coliseum, Disney Castle, Timeless River, Port Royal, Agrabah, Halloween Town, and Space Paranoids. Although the details of the design vary from world to world, the basic design is based on the real-world Zero Skateboard.[citation needed] Skateboards usually appear within multiple areas of a world, and can be used both to traverse the room more quickly, and to inflict minor damage to enemies while being invulnerable to attack.

On several of the worlds with skateboards, it is possible to talk to a character and activate one of the SB mini-games, in which Sora must either perform a certain amount of stunts in a set period, or collect a multitude of crystals hidden along a path. Each of these mini-games has a score requirement for Jiminy's Journal, meaning that it is necessary to master these mini-games in order to complete Jiminy's Journal. The Mail Delivery mini-game at Twilight Town also requires the skateboard, although it is not classified as a skateboard mini-game.

Points are scored by performing combos, which are made up of the three tricks tied into the controller buttons. Stringing these tricks into combos can be done as long as a character is airborne or grinding on an edge; hitting the ground or running into a wall ends the combo and the attempt. Jumping into the air without performing a combo also counts as an attempt. It should also be noted that skateboards can damage enemies, though it deals minimal damage.

Controls[edit]

Note: All commands for Circle and X are switched for the Japanese versions of the game.

When the player finds a skateboard, they can mount it using the "Hop On" Reaction Command with Triangle. Anytime that they approach a grindable edge while on the skateboard, whether on the ground, in the air, or already grinding, they can "Grind" with Triangle. During the Mail Delivery mini-game, they can also "Deliver" with Triangle whenever they approach one of the target recipients.

On the ground, the player can "Jump" with Circle, "Heelflip" with X, and "Get Off" with Square.

Once in the air, the player can "Air Walk" with Circle, "360° Spin" with X, and "Method Grab" with Square.

While grinding, they can "Pop-Jump" with Circle and "Handstand" with Square.
