"My friends are my power... and I'm theirs!"
Story[edit | edit source]
After their adventures in Olympus, Sora, Donald, and Goofy have returned to The Mysterious Tower. Their conversation with Master Yen Sid is interrupted by the return of King Mickey and Riku from the Dark World, who come bearing bad news--they weren't able to locate Aqua. All is not lost, however, as Riku recalls how Sora was lost to darkness during his exam, but Riku was able to save him. He explains that if they are able to find someone who is close with Aqua, that person might be able to travel into the abyss and find her. Mickey and Yen Sid ponder this option, but things seem grim as they realize that everyone Aqua was close with is gone. Suddenly, Sora exclaims that he will save Aqua, though when the group reacts with shock to this suggestion, Sora becomes confused and admits he is unsure why he offered. Still, the declaration was convincing, so Sora is told to continue on his search for the power of waking with the end goal of visiting the realm of darkness to save Aqua.
