Drive/Form Abilities[edit]

Notes
  • Valor Form is available when you upgrade your clothes
  • Wisdom Form is obtained by clearing Timeless River
  • Master Form is obtained by talking to The King before the second visit to Space Paranoids.
  • Final Form is made available by reaching the "Memory's Skyscraper" and seeing the cutscene with Roxas. This will unlock the chance for Final Form to appear when changing into any other Drive Form. It is easily obtained by going to the "Fragment Crossing" (the second room of The World that Never Was) and changing into a Drive form. If you change to the form that you chose and not Final Form, then go to the "Alley to between" (the first room of The World that Never Was) and you will have your Drive gauge full. Go back to the "Fragment Crossing" and try again. Also, after you have successfully activated Final Form one time, Final Form will be available under Command: Drive > Final.

It is well worth equipping the abilities
