Chronology Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories


Sora, Donald, and Goofy begin to plan their strategy on defeating Marluxia. Donald worries if the group is unable to have their memories restored. He comments, revealing he is unable to remember who they are supposed to be looking for.

In the basement levels, Riku continues progressing up the floors. Eventually he finds Ansem, who is disappointed to see the gift he previously gave Riku unused. Also in the basement levels is Zexion, who finds the keychain Lexaeus used to have. Fearing his own elimination, Zexion resolves to persuade Riku to join him.

Marluxia has captured Naminé, now ordering her to erase Sora's memory completely. Axel interrupts, instantly starting to fight Marluxia. Sora later arrives, successfully separating the two. Temporarily stopping the battle, Marluxia reveals himself as the mysterious figure who first led Sora to Castle Oblivion. Axel resumes the fight. Marluxia grabs Naminé, using her as a human shield. Axel smirks, stating hiding behind Naminé won't save him. Marluxia warps away from Axel, asking Sora which enemy to deal with first: him, or Axel.
