Kingdom Hearts Wiki

Bumble Buster (ハチたいじ Hachi taiji?) is a mini-game in Twilight Town in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix. Both Roxas and Sora can play it, though only the former gets munny for completing the mini-game. It involves killing Honey Bees in the Tram area in Twilight Town. Completing it faster reaps you more munny.

The mini-game, like all others in Twilight Town, becomes available when Roxas needs munny to help go to the beach with Hayner, Pence, and Olette.

When playing as Sora, Bumble Buster must be completed in a set time in order to complete the requirement for Jiminy's Journal.


Bumble Buster in Sora's story.

For both Roxas and Sora, the ultimate goal of the mini-game is to clear out the local bees. The player must press R1 to lock onto the bees, but must release the lock-on feature before swinging. This way, the yellow auto-target will zero in on whichever swarm is closest.

The key to defeating all of the bees within the set time is to bring them together with the Magnet spell. The more powerful the spell, the more likely any bees at a distance will be drawn in. Follow this up with a combo or jump in amongst the swarm with a Fire or Thunder spell to bring a quick finish to the mini-game.
