I don't actually believe you, Ozma shits out so much damage even with heals and regen

You're bad in that your characters died but Amarant lived and somehow magically soloed? I think what happened at best is the others did the damage and after a long fight you decided to not revive and amaranth did a few thou damage and you claim it was a solo attempt

Donald was broken as fuck in KH 1 but was nerfed to hell and back in KH 2. Goofy has been a bro in both games though.

Why did they nerf Donald so badly in KH 2? He was useless. I always swapped him out. Goofy stayed with me in all the worlds.

kimarhi was garbage, quit fooling yourself. anything he could do, everyone else could do better. his only use is stealing from the gay ronso butt buddies to get easy keysphere unlocks. all his blue magic was overdrive onry, meaning all he could do was either attack or cast magic. he was shit at doing both.

his piercing ability was rendered useless by his low strength, and you get auron quickly enough. lancet was decent enough to make him cast spells, but his magic is dwarfed by the other 2 bitches that could cast infinitely better.
