Much like the Gummi Ship modes of previous Kingdom Hearts console games, Dive Mode is completely extra as far as mastering it goes. You get a Keyblade for hitting Rank A on all of the Dives, and some items as well, though, so this mode is not worth missing.

The absolutely most important thing in Dive Mode, if trying to hit Rank A or get mass Prize Points for the Trophy, is time. Pressing the A Button rapidly increases your speed, but you must also focus on grabbing prizes. It is more of an art than skill…

Anyways, here, you’ll find some data on the various Dives. You only get A- and B-Rank scores for the obvious reason that anything under is Rank C. Minimum values are only posted to save space; once you reach some higher rank, that will take priority.
