The Barnyard Battle is a minigame available through the Classic Kingdom in Kingdom Hearts Union χ and Kingdom Hearts III. In the game, Sora and Mickey try defeat as many enemy cat soldiers without being caught themselves.

The Barnyard Battle is based on Walt Disney’s 1929 animated short "The Barnyard Battle".

Gameplay[edit | edit source]

The objective is to have Sora and Mickey, who are hiding behind bales of hay, hit the enemy cat soldiers coming up on through the rows of hay. If they swing too early, the soldiers will instead catch them, and you lose a life. The game is over if you lose three lives. As you progress through the game, the soldiers move faster, requiring quicker reactions.

The Barnyard Battle was one of the games introduced in Classic Kingdom in Kingdom Hearts Union χ, and was part of the challenge to receive the Starlight Keyblade for Kingdom Hearts III. In order to qualify, one must achieve a cumulative score of 25000 in the mingame.

Origin[edit | edit source]

"The Barnyard Battle" is an animated short released on April 25, 1929 as part of the Mickey Mouse series of cartoons. In the cartoon, Mickey is a conscript in the mice army, while a peg-leg Pete is a leading soldier in an invading cat army. First, Mickey endures physical and emotional abuse to pass a physical exam and join the army. Then, he is given a machine gun and goes to battle. He defeats the army through various comical attacks, and is hailed a hero in the end.
