Ventus Story

Keyblade Graveyard

Defeat Vanitas

Loot the four chests for a Mega-Potion, Elixir, Xehanort’s Report 12 , and the Keyblade Graveyard Map. The Ice Cream Sticker can be reached with a simple High Jump. Head to the Twister Trench where spinning tornadoes will chase after Ventus and start a tough battle. Beware the Mandrakes in these battles or you could wind up feeling their wrath. There are five chests in total in the Twister Trench: a Mega-Ether, Mega-Potion, Elixir, Wind Raid and Megalixir strewn across the plain. The final sticker, an Ice Cream Sticker is found on the northern wall. Enter the Fissure and use the save and shop if you need. This is your last chance to save before the finale.

BOSS - Vanitas

Ventus faces Vanitas alone in the final battle’s first round. Vanitas will use most of the same tricks as in the first fight, but he has a few new ones as well. One involves riding a wave of Keyblades around the battlefield shooting beams at you. You can dodge with Superglide but it’s best to use a Shotlock here for damage. A simple Mine command will help stop Vanitas in his tracks with this attack.

Keyblade surfing (left) is one of Vanitas' new tricks as is shooting out fireballs (right). These are in addition to his attacks from the previous fight.

BOSS - Vanitas (Again)

Vanitas typically uses a Shotlock-style attack at the start of this fight. Respond with your own Shotlock immediately to become invulnerable and deal damage. Most of Vanitas’s new moves are completely unblockable and it will become difficult to track what is going on amidst the chaos. Dodging is a low priority; utilize your own attacks to counter his instead and use Shotlocks when you have a large enough opening. Faith and Salvation will be lifesavers if you have them. When Vanitas gets low enough on health the screen will explode and Ventus becomes a Dimension Link. You basically are made to do a series of button combinations in order to fend Vanitas off. The ultimate goal is to charge your Command Gauge and use the Last Word finish command; it’s the only way you can win the fight.

Vanitas rushes at you constantly (left) but you can dodge the attacks if you're fast enough. He also uses his sword to create a ton of energy (right) in various forms.
