In the first act Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Cloud all meet Phil and Hercules, they sign up to compete, and The Games begin. In the second act Sora, Donald, and Goofy catch up to Cloud who says he is waiting for Hercules so that he can take him out. Sora decides to fight Cloud, but he disapears before Sora can finish him off. In the third act Sora catches up to Cloud to find him mid-battle with Hercules, both worn and tired. Suddenly Hades appears, stating that because Cloud failed to take out Sora and Hercules, the deal is off and Hades will take care of the tired Hercules himself. Sora steps in to protect Hercules and defeats Sora. Before Cloud leaves, Sora speaks to Cloud, telling him that even something small may help restore his memories as the truly important memories never disapear completely.
