Maleficent summons Sora's shadow at a Heartless altar on Swashbuckler's Island. Sora faces off against the dark entity, tricking his reflection into falling into a pit; however, a tentacle of darkness emerges from the pit and pierces Sora's heart with a dark curse.

Later, Sora explores the potion room hidden within Maleficent's Castle to find a way to restore the Keyblade's magic, and he discovers a mirror which reflects Sora's shadow. Sora is able to use the mirror to control his reflection and learn the Thunder spell.
