"Kid, I got two words of advice for you: Attack!"
Phil is a long time trainer of heroes, the most noteworthy of his protégés being the demi-god Hercules. He is often found at the Coliseum, where, after a little convincing, he offers training opportunities to those who pass through.
Story[edit | edit source]
Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit | edit source]
Phil does not appear in Chain of Memories, but instead a figment of him is created based off of Sora's memories from Kingdom Hearts. Because Phil, and every other denizen of Olympus Coliseum in Chain of Memories, is just a recreation of a memory, they act the same way they did at the start of the first game before meeting Sora.
Upon entering the world, Sora, Donald, and Goofy discover that Phil is hosting The Games. In the first act, Phil was about to cancel The Games because no one made it through the preliminary round. However, Sora and Cloud show up and convince him not to cancel, so that they can have a chance to fight Hercules. Phil agrees to this and starts The Games.
Eighteen years ago, the Fates looked into the future and predicted Hades would succeed in taking over the cosmos and dethroning Zeus. Hoping to fulfill his fate, Hades has released the Titans and started his war against the Gods, raining destruction over all of Olympus. As Hercules, Sora, Donald, and Goofy finish fighting a swarm of Heartless in Thebes, Phil arrives on Pegasus with Meg. Both he and Meg are pleased to see Hercules safe and Sora, Donald, and Goofy returned. With the city of Thebes on fire, Hercules implores Meg and Phil to get to safety, which they agree to do. They make their escape atop Pegasus.
After Sora and company have scoured the city for endangered citizens, Phil, Meg, and Pegasus return. The trio have flown all over Thebes and are happy to report that all the citizens have been saved. Phil watches as a dark cloud forms around the peak of Mount Olympus. When Sora and Hercules decide to investigate, Phil and Meg leave with Pegasus once more.
Once Hades has been defeated and Thebes begins work on its reconstruction, the statue of Hercules in Agora is one of the first landmarks to be rebuilt. At the unveiling ceremony Phil stands in the crowd, reveling in the cheers of the townspeople as if they are for him and not Hercules.
