The End, also known as the Battle Report in later games, is a phrase used to refer to the ending of a work of fiction. It is included in almost every Kingdom Hearts game to date. Dearly Beloved is often the theme that plays during the ending frame of the game. When a "The End" screen appears, there is usually no need for user input, however, there is user input in later games such as Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, due to the fact that these savings may have later use.
The End screen in Kingdom Hearts is simply the cover artwork of the North American version, with "The End" written in a white font at the bottom left. The End screen in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix is the cover artwork but set to night, with "Fin" and various statistics shown on the left side. Dearly Beloved -Reprise- plays in this incarnation of The End.
The Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories version of Dearly Beloved plays while the End screens are shown.
Chain of Memories: The end screen is a picture of Sora, Donald, and Goofy climbing the stairs of Castle Oblivion with Naminé at the top, similar to how Castle Oblivion is shown in the opening of Kingdom Hearts II.
Re: Chain of Memories
Chain of Memories: The end screen is a picture of Sora and Riku posing back to back displayed in the style of the box art.
Re: Chain of Memories
The End screen in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days is similar to the cover of the game's Ultimania, with "End" written in a black font at the bottom right while the Kingdom Hearts II version of Dearly Beloved -Reprise- plays.
The Kingdom Hearts version of Dearly Beloved plays while the End screens are shown.
The End screen in Kingdom Hearts Re:coded depicts a jumping Sora sprite that can also be seen in the game's ending sequence, with "The End" written in a blue font at the bottom right corner of the upper screen while Dearly Beloved -Reprise- plays. Kingdom Hearts coded does not have a "The End" screen like in other Kingdom Hearts titles, but instead restarts Sora back at Destiny Islands.
The End screen in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance depicts Sora and Riku wielding their Keyblades on the right of the top screen, but if the game mode is critical, it will show the Twilight artwork. On the bottom right, it shows a moving render of the most used Dream Eater. On the left of both screens shows the Battle Report and the bottom left of the bottom screen has "The End" written while Dearly Beloved -Reprise- plays. In the Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue version, the Battle Report is separated into two pages, due to the lack of dual-screen functionality.
