The Gummiphone is a mechanic introduced in Kingdom Hearts III with multiple useful features. Designed by Chip and Dale and made out of gummi, the phone serves as a main method of between world communication with Sora. It also offers a camera (used to capture Lucky Emblems) and a digitized version of Jiminy's Journal.
Story[edit | edit source]
Kingdom Hearts III[edit | edit source]
After their adventures in Olympus, Sora, Donald, and Goofy return to The Mysterious Tower, where Master Yen Sid tells Sora to continue on his search for the power of waking with the end goal of saving Aqua. Before they leave, Sora expresses frustration with not getting a new outfit, until Yen Sid summons another suitcase, this one filled with special clothing from Flora, Fauna, and Merryweather, and the Gummiphone, a gift from Chip and Dale. Sora is ecstatic as he and his friends set off on their journey.
Inside the Gummi Ship, Goofy and Donald are waiting for Sora to set their next path of travel when they are interrupted by a strange ringing sound. Sora pulls a device from the pocket of his new outfit and, confused, presses a button on the front. Dale and then Chip appear on the device's screen, revealing what Sora holds is a Gummiphone, something they created so they could keep in touch with Sora on his travels. They have called to tell Sora about some of Ansem the Wise's data that Riku discovered during their time in sleeping worlds. The conversation is joined by Ienzo, who has been examining the data Riku found, and informs Sora that they have learnt that Sora's heart doesn't completely belong to him. To the other's surprise, Sora is not shocked by the information, for he has suspected Roxas was inside his heart for some while. Intrigued, Ienzo signs off to continue his investigations, while Chip and Dale give a cheery farewell and the promise of help should the others ever need it.
In Twilight Town, Sora, Donald, and Goofy find Hayner, Pence, and Olette and explain that they are trying to bring Roxas back. Hayner, Pence, and Olette don't know anyone by that name, but they remark that it sounds familiar, so Goofy shows them the picture from the Simulated Twilight Town that shows them in front of the Old Mansion with Roxas. Intrigued, Hayner, Pence, and Olette decide to ask around town about Roxas, while Sora, Donald, and Goofy decide to journey ahead to the Old Mansion. Before separating, the group take a photo together with the Gummiphone, which leads to Sora's first discovery of a Lucky Emblem. At the the Old Mansion, Ienzo calls Sora on the Gummiphone and explains that while attempting to decipher Ansem's Code, he received an alert that someone was trying to access the terminal in Twilight Town. With Pence's assistance, Ienzo is able to set up a network between the two worlds. Before hanging up, Ienzo reveals to Sora that Even, the former Organization XIII member known as Vexen, has disappeared and Sora should be careful. Later, outside the Le Grand Bistrot, Hayner and Olette catch up to Sora, Donald and Goofy. The pair are revealed to be working for Scrooge McDuck, putting up posters to advertise a movie festival for the town. Olette teaches Sora how to scan the posters to unlock promotional games on his Gummiphone.
