VS Battle (バーサスモード Bāsasu Mōdo?, lit. "Versus Mode") is a gameplay mode that appears in Kingdom Hearts Melody of Memory. It allows the player to face off against computer opponents or other players online. The mode is unlocked after clearing ten Field Battle stages. VS Battles are narrated by Chirithy.


VS Battles are a competition to earn the most points in a Field Battle track. Exclusive to this mode, the player has access to the Trick system, which can be used apply various negative effects on the opponent.

In a COM battle, the player chooses opponents from a list of five, each with a unique song and varying difficulty. The player is given a rank, and winning three matches will promote the player to the next rank. If the player loses three matches, the opponents are reshuffled and progress towards the next the rank is reset. The starting rank is Bronze, while the highest rank is Platinum.

In an online battle, both opponents choose a song to play, which is then picked at random. Instead of ranking up, players fight for Collector's Cards. The winner of the match will receive two cards, while the loser will receive one. There is also an option to play a Free-for-All match with up to seven players through local online play.


Tricks (トリック Torikku?) are special powers that can give the upper hand in a VS Battle. Each player's Trick gauge fills up as they successfully hit notes, unleashing a random trick on the opponent when full. Tricks interfere with the opponent's game, similar to status effects.
