Talk:Olympus Coliseum

From Kingdom Hearts Wiki: A world of information not accessible by Gummiship

Spelling[edit]

I know Colosseum is the proper spelling, but the game uses the "Coliseum" spelling. Any thoughts?--Dreyfus 23:00, 6 January 2007 (UTC)

  • Oops, I should've looked here before moving. I moved because of that, I think we should go with the in-game spelling, but I can move it back if there are major objections (normally anyone can revert moves, but I had to delete a redirect to do this one, so...).

Trivia check![edit]

It says only Destiny Islands and Hollow Bastion are the other worlds in all three games, but wasn't 100 Acre Wood in all 3 too?


Symbol Character - Mickey.png
FA icon.png Not only 100 Acre Wood, but also Agrabah, Atlantica, Halloween Town... Which part says that ? I'll get it rectified.

Also, it says that the clip with Maleficent still plays, but i saw a video on youtube where they went there after hollow bastion and maleficent was edited out...

It's set after the movie[edit]

Someone removed this info I contributed saying that KHII used the movie's plot, but this isn't correct. There's some references to the film (Hades using Hercules's relationship with Meg in his ploy, Hades falling into the Styx, the Hydra), but the main plot in this world is Hades using Auron to fight Hercules and reopening the Underdrome with Pete's assistance, tricking Sora into unlocking it. It's been a while since I saw the film, but I don't remember anything about an Underdrome, so I deduce it is something they made up for the game (and obviously Auron isn't in the movie, either). Also, Zeus and Mount Olympus are only mentioned in KHII while in the film the whole plot revolves around Hades wanting to take over Mount Olympus and overthrow Zeus. With all this in mind, I'm putting back the info I contributed. And as my contributed info already stated, Hercules already has his divine glow in the first KH, which he attains at the end of the film. I.e. the world is set after the events of the film.

Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png So long ago it was decided that the games did not count as Heartless/Nobody appearances. But technically, they still take place in the Coliseum/Underworld. Thus the games should be taken into account in terms of the Enemies section on the article. I mean, in the "Somebodies" section, Cloud, Leon, Yuffie, and Sephiroth, as well as Hades and the Ice and Rock Titans, are listed, but they only are fought in the games, aside from Cerberus and the Hydra. Shouldn't the Heartless and Nobody list be expanded to maintain consistency?
Symbol Character - Mickey.png
FA icon.png As far as I know, yes, it should.

On KHFR we did the same thing, we went so far as to include every single Heartless/Nobody appearing in the Coliseum. The Enemy section would be huge, no doubt, but it also goes to show that there were some enemies unfit for purposes of the Games. Like the Atlantica Heartless, for example. The list needs meticulous preparation, but I'm sure that it'll give a comprehensive list of what to expect in general.

As for Heartless appearing within the area proper, we can subsection them.

KrytenKoro - Most bears were content to live their lives, mauling and eating one, maybe two humans at most. "Mass-murder," as the bears always said, "is for the sharks." But not Barry. Barry was different. He knew that one day, he would kill ALL of the humans. This is the inspiring, tear-jerking story of one bear and the dream he dared to dream.
TALK -
As far as the enemy galleries, I thought we had agreed to place the ones for each game on the pages for the games (though they need major cleanup anyway). I mean, the Enemy template lists such appearances as separate from Olympus Coliseum appearances, just like the Ultimania/Bradygames guides do.

In that respect, only the BBS bosses as well as Hydra, Cerberus, Cloud, and Hades should be listed in the Somebodies box. (So, remove Ice Titan, Rock Titan, Sephiroth, Yuffie, and Leon)

Symbol Character - Mickey.png
FA icon.png Wait, the BBS bosses do include Ice Titan, n'est-ce pas ?

We have to decide on something. If we're going to lump all Heartless and Nobodies into their respective sections, I say by all means, do it. Provided that we state a section for Coliseum-area-specific enemies and bosses.

With the enemy cups, I personally think it would be best to have galleries like the ones here on the individual Cup pages.

TALK -
I found the seed listing in the Bradygames guide, so I started the page at Preliminary Tournament. Basically, any of the KH1 enemies still listed on this page should be removed (unless they are CoM enemies), since Cerberus is the only enemy that truly appears in Olympus Coliseum. The enemy articles should have the Prelim seed listing added to their infobox - make sure to check if the templates still display correctly, because I might need to fix it for this.

I'll try to get info on the KH2 Hades Cup listing as well.

KHD mini-games[edit]

  • Beginner's Training (Mission 36)
  • Practical Application (Mission 39)
  • Champ's Challenge (Mission 46)

There are also a few that aren't listed for points, but are treated more like the normal cups:

  • Mission 61: Games
  • Mission 73: Games

The first three are obviously variations on Phil's Training, but do we want to consider 61 and 73 (Games 1 and Games 2) as full-fledged cups? They do act like it, at least.Glorious CHAOS! 03:40, July 19, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, I think we should treat them as cups. They have seeds and plenty of enemies. But do they have cups? I don't really remember. I might be able to play a holo-mission to find out, though. --VenCharm.pngLegoAlchemistVenCharm.png 04:18, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
61 and 73 are functionally the same as cups (though you have to holomission in order to redo them, like all other minigames in Days), but they are just called the "Games".Glorious CHAOS! 04:42, July 19, 2010 (UTC)
When I said "cups", I was actually refering to the prize you win at the end...
Anyway, I replayed those missions last night and got a list of seeds and the enemies in them. I'll swing them by when I get to a decent computer. And, for the record, there are no "cups" as prizes when you beat them.
EDIT: Okay, here it is:
Mission 61
  1. Shadow x3, Soldier x3
  2. Hover Ghost x7
  3. Striped Aria x3, Ice Cannon
  4. Yellow Opera x4, Tailbunker
  5. Xigbar
  6. Guard Armor
Mission 73
  1. Sky Grappler, Air Battler x2
  2. Jumbo Cannon x3, Li'l Cannon x6
  3. Snowy Crystal x2. Switch Launcher
  4. Watcher x4, Ice Cannon
  5. Stalwart Blade

Underworld Characters[edit]

Shouldn't the titans be moved to the Underworld page? I know that they're fought at the Coliesum, but they do originate from the Underworld.--63.107.215.212 02:01, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Weeeell, no, they don't really. They were imprisoned deep in the earth, but they didn't come from the Underworld. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 02:33, August 27, 2010 (UTC)

Touranment rules error.[edit]

Rule 3 of the games states that no summoning is allowed; you must fight on your own strenght. This contradicts what Hades says in Birth By Sleep. His exact words were: Rule number 2: Combatants may call for back-up. Aren't summoning and back up the same thing, or am I missing something? Should it be mentioned?(Bananaphone1996 04:03, September 13, 2010 (UTC))

Rule 3 might have been instated after Hades's display of his interpretation of Rule 2. Keep in mind, there's a ten year gap. maggosh 04:12, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Are there any requirements in order to enter the games? I'm all the way to the End of the World in my replaying of KH, and I've gotten every treasure, trinity, except the one for the keyhole, and every time I go to talk to Phil, he just says to clean things up. Can any one help? I would prefer if you would leave me a message on my talk page.

Somebodies[edit]

I understand that this section is for those who appear outside the tournaments, but Sephiroth DO appear in a cutscene outside the Platinum Match. The one with him and Cloud in the Final Mix version. This does not count? I wanted to clarify that.--Dark-EnigmaXIII 22:21, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

....that's the boss list."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 23:12, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

You mean, bosses who has an impact on the storyline or what? I dont quite understand--Dark-EnigmaXIII 23:59, February 7, 2011 (UTC)

I think the somebody ememies here are enemies who were fought in the actualy story yes? Which is why Sephiroth dosen't quite belong. twobecomeoneleft20px.png roxaspageicon20px.png Roxas roxaspageicon20px.png twobecomeoneright20px.png 00:02, February 8, 2011 (UTC)

Er, what?[edit]

I'm sorry if this sounds stupid, but why does it say that the enemies from Days should be removed from the enemies sections?--Riot\AU 20:13, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Because most of them are encountered within the Games, which have their own pages and enemy lists. Any enemies in Days from outside the Games should be left on this page, like the Deserters."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 20:56, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

Oh. I didn't know the Day's games had a page. Well, thanks.--Riot\AU 21:39, February 24, 2011 (UTC)

I was wondering if you had to seal the Olympus Coliseum's Keyhole in KH before you can compete in the games? If not, what 'cleaning up' that Phil says you have to do needs to be done before you can compete in the games?

Coliseum in the film[edit]

So I watched Hercules recently, and I noticed that the coliseum where Herc argues with Phil is actually situated in Thebes, not on Olympus so I was wondering if it is actually the Olympus coliseum like it says in the article or just a normal coliseum and the one in KH was just created specifically for KH. What do you think? Should the article be changed?

First, always remember to sign your posts via the signature button on the edit screen [looks like a scribbled signature], or typing ~~~~ Now, onto your question... No. This article is named as it is because this is how the world is named in-game. Regardless of where the coliseum is actually located in the movies, the game trumps all. This Wiki is about the Kingdom Hearts series. Not the movies.--Xion4ever 04:30, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
What the anon is saying is that our coliseum is clearly located on Olympus, clouds and mountain and all, and appears to be heavily inspired by the Theban coliseum. The article recently claimed that it was directly taken from the Theban coliseum, which is in error."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 19:58, 9 January 2015 (UTC)

Opening[edit]

So it is here where it all begins. Byzantinefire - There are no strings on me 20px-AOU_Audi_Promo_07.png (talk) 07:57, 19 January 2017 (UTC)

Worlds that are explicitly the same world but are renamed[edit]

  • Olympus/Olympus Coliseum
  • Land of Departure/Castle Oblivion (easier to differentiate)
  • Timeless River/Disney Town/Disney Castle
  • Radiant Garden/Hollow Bastion (caveat of the castle)
  • Monstro/Prankster's Paradise (easier to differentiate)
  • Mysterious Tower/Symphony of Sorcery (caveat of the books)
  • Port Royal/The Caribbean
  • Space Paranoids/The Grid (easier to differentiate)

There are a few of these that we have, through interpretation, decided are clearly delineated locations; alternatively, like SP and LoD, there's a clear line in the story where the nature of the world "changes". However, there are at least three where they are treated very explicitly as "literally the same world, nothing changed other than the name in this one game". I feel like we may have to merge those in order to have a sensical plot synopsis."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 19:52, 29 January 2019 (UTC)

Olympus Coliseum is only the Coliseum, the Underworld, and a random town near Thebes. Olympus is the mountain, Thebes, and the Realm of the Gods, so they are different locations, like Monstro/PP, and HB/RG. The same applies to Timeless River/Disney Town/Disney Castle. We never actually see a location that is part of more than one of these worlds. I haven't been to the Caribbean yet, so I don't know how that works yet. Also, one of the loading screen social media things in KH3, mentions that Yen Sid can move his tower, which would explain it being part of Twilight Town in one game, and separate in another. TheSilentHero 20:01, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
I'd have to disagree with the coliseum being separate from realm of the gods -- the characters make a specific comment about hearing the same fanfare they always heard from the coliseum, and hercules' plot in particular consists of him going back and forth between these areas. Really, that's the issue with the main three I'm asking about -- those that are easier to differentiate, you don't have the characters going back and forth, and honestly you barely have interaction between these subworlds. However, Disney Town has Minnie going back and forth to the Castle, Olympus has Hercules spending his time at the Coliseum but also (implied per dialogue) going out to do heroics in Thebes.
For Mysterious Tower, I'm talking about the differentiation between the waking and sleeping versions. While the tower itself appears within the 3D world, the symphony seems to only include the musical books.
I think we can pretty easily keep the other five separate, with some acknowledgement early on that it is the same world, but for the three in particular I think the plot would make most sense being interleaved."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 21:37, 29 January 2019 (UTC)
Got to The Caribbean today, and both Goofy and Luxord mention that they have been to the world before. So Port Royal = The Caribbean. TheSilentHero 21:02, 30 January 2019 (UTC)
