Chronology Kingdom Hearts


Cid tells Sora, Donald, and Goofy that their ship lacks the navigation data to reach Hollow Bastion. However, Goofy won a Navi-G from the Lost Boys, solving the problem. Instead of returning to Traverse Town, Chip and Dale decide to install the Gummi. While waiting for the duo to finish, Donald and Goofy cheer up a doubtful Sora by proclaiming that as long as they are together, things will work out okay. Riku arrives at Hollow Bastion where Maleficent chides him for being reckless when a roar interrupts them. The fairy informs Riku that a castaway has tracked his princess to the castle in hopes of rescuing her. Sora, Donald, and Goofy arrive in time to stop Riku from killing the castaway, Beast. However, Riku surprises everyone by claiming the Keyblade, stating Sora was merely the delivery boy. He grants his old friend a wooden sword before departing with Donald and Goofy, who follow the Key as their King instructed.
