Trivia[edit]

  • Coincidentally, the total number of Spirits for the Kingdom Hearts series is 13, an important number in the Kingdom Hearts series.
  • Most of the Kingdom Hearts spirit battles are stamina battles, referencing the HP mechanic shown when engaging in battles in the Kingdom Hearts series.
    • Kairi's spirit battle is the only one that is not a stamina battle.
  • Strangely, despite how none of the fighters are shown to possess a Final Smash Meter in Aqua's spirit battle, Lucina has one enabled after dealing and receiving enough damage as normal fighters with visible Final Smash Meters do. This is currently the only spirit battle with this oddity.
