[[Image:Ship.jpg|right|thumb|Gummi Ships can be customized to just about any shape with the help of '''Gummi Blocks''']]

'''Gummi Blocks''' are a material used primarily in the creation and modification of [[Gummi Ship]]s. They are elastic and rubber-like in texture, and appear in many varieties. Each type has its own shape and properties and a wide variety of uses. Gummi Blocks also feature in ''[[Kingdom Hearts χ]]'' and ''[[Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ]]'' in the form of the Gummi Hound raid boss.
'''Gummi Blocks''' are essentially portable blocks of elastic material that have properties attached to them. They can be utilized in one form to create [[Gummi Ship]]s, which are necessary to travel from world to world. Blocks can be found in chests, dropped from fallen enemies and ships and even purchased when [[Pinocchio]] and [[Gepetto]] are in [[Traverse Town]]. They can also be bought from [[Cid]] who eventually proves to be an expert in Gummi engineering and helps when [[Sora]] finds half of a '''Navi-G''' block in [[Deep Jungle]].

==History==
A basic understanding of what Gummi blocks are can be inferred from the [[Ansem Reports]]. It appears that when [[Heartless]] appear, or when the door leading to a world's heart is opened, the wall that protects that world collapses. Gummi blocks then appear in said world, as in the case of Ansem's study of the meteors, suggesting that the blocks are remnants of the protective wall of the world. This would account for them appearing in many shapes and forms and bonding easily with each other. It is possible that Gummi is also present in between worlds, which might explain the presence of so many [[Heartless]] Gummi ships. The nature and origin of Gummi blocks allows them to travel to other worlds.

===''[[Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep]]''===
  +
In ''Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep'', the Gummi Blocks have a larger part in the game's plot. They are known as '''Star Shards'''; [[Mickey Mouse|King Mickey]] uses one he had taken from [[Yen Sid]] to travel the worlds. The Star Shards also appear as star-shaped crystals, as opposed to the block-like, geometric shapes of typical Gummi Blocks. However, the King cannot control the power of the Star Shard on his own.
   
  +
The Star Shard transports the user, as well as anyone in physical contact with the user, to a different [[Universe of Kingdom Hearts#Worlds|World]]. If the user does not know how to control the shard, it activates its power randomly and the traveler never knows where he will land or when he will be transported away; thus, Mickey's visits to the same worlds that Terra, Ventus, and Aqua end up are often purely coincidental. It is known that King Mickey is not the only character to come in contact with the Star Shard; both [[Ventus]] and [[Captain Hook]] have been shown to find King Mickey's Star Shard.
As mentioned in the Ansem Reports, Gummi blocks are "elastic" and "bond easily" when combined, as evident when creating [[Gummi Ship]]s. The blocks themselves are very numerous and come in all shapes and sizes with properties attached to each. When added to Gummi ships, they provide advantages such as improved armor, increased acceleration and greater firepower. In both versions of Kingdom Hearts, specialized Gummi blocks can be used for other advantages, such as warp travel in ''[[Kingdom Hearts (game)|Kingdom Hearts]]''.

  +
According to the [[Ansem Reports]] found in ''Kingdom Hearts'', [[Terra-Xehanort|Xehanort]] caused Gummi Blocks to appear in [[Radiant Garden]] for the first time, and was also the first to study them. By this time, the [[Disney Castle]] world had already made use of this material, as King Mickey appeared in Radiant Garden in a Gummi Ship soon after. Unknown to Xehanort, by opening the door to the heart of Radiant Garden, he also opened the gateway allowing his world to interact with others.

A basic understanding of what Gummi blocks are can be inferred from the Ansem Reports. It appears that when the door leading to a world's heart is opened, the wall that protects that world collapses. Gummi blocks then appear in said world, as in the case of Ansem's study of the meteors, suggesting that the blocks are remnants of the protective wall of the world. The nature and origin of Gummi blocks is what allows them to travel to other worlds.
In the Original Kingdom Hearts, gummi travel was simple. the ship would move foward on it's own, and you could control up, down, left and right. The ability to brake was also included, but merely slowed the ship instead of a full stop. Numerous enemy ships would appear, and upon their destruction would leave a Gummi block or a blueprint for that enemy ship. The meters included in flight would consist of armor( substituting HP) and Power(substituting Mp). Certain blocks added additional meters, such as shield(From the Shield and Shield-2 blocks) and turbo(from the Haste and Haste-2 blocks) On the garage menu, you could create your own ship, with a block limit almost impossible to reach. Blocks could also be turned and colored for use.

While Gummi travel did not appear in Kingdom hearts: COM, it appeared in a different form in Kingdom Hearts 2. Although the System was more complicated, the concept became that of a mini-game. A path would have to be traversed once to get to a world, and then that world would become availible without the use of Gummi travel. However, each track has 3 missions with set goals and a score system, which acted as a side game that did not affect the story. Blocks would be awarded as prizes for score, and rarely dropped by a ship, which also included Nobody ships.The most notable features are the ability to urn the ship around during flight, the Overdrive feature, the concept of in-flight bosses, and the addition of Teeny ships, smaller ships that can fly along side you.While the game allowed for the customization of ships, completed blueprints were awarded for flight, based off of the Highwind, Invincible, and the Falcon, all airships of the Final Fantasy series. Bonus ships included the Tonberry, Moogle, Chocobo, Cactuar, Cat Saith and Fenrir, all modeled and named after characters or enemies in the Final Fantasy series.

===''[[Kingdom Hearts]]''===

The primary way that [[Sora]] obtains Gummi Blocks is by destroying enemy Gummi Ships and obtaining blocks or blueprints from their remnants. Rarer blocks, however, can be found in chests throughout the worlds and dropped from certain [[Heartless]].
   
  +
Later on in ''Kingdom Hearts'', they can be purchased from [[Cid]] who, in a nod to his affinity with Airships, is an expert in Gummi engineering. Cid resumes his former work with Gummi Ships when Sora finds half of a '''Navi-G''' block in [[Deep Jungle]]. An entire set of Gummi Blocks is also awarded as a prize for finding all of [[99 Puppies]] for [[Pongo and Perdita]].
Also, ship customization was improved as well. Along with coloring blocks, the player also has the choice of using block skins, which have special designs. New blocks were included, such as blades, shields, saws, propellers, and even wheels. Also, each block has a cost, instead of a "Block Limit". The most abstract feature is the ability system, which grants certain powers to the ship during flight

Notably, enemy ships in ''Kingdom Hearts II'' are not made of Gummi blocks, but are in fact actual ships.

Gummi Ship as seen in Kingdom Hearts

Gummi Blocks are a material used primarily in the creation and modification of Gummi Ships. They are elastic and rubber-like in texture, and appear in many varieties. Each type has its own shape and properties and a wide variety of uses. Gummi Blocks also feature in Kingdom Hearts χ and Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ in the form of the Gummi Hound raid boss.

History

A Star Shard.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, the Gummi Blocks have a larger part in the game's plot. They are known as Star Shards; King Mickey uses one he had taken from Yen Sid to travel the worlds. The Star Shards also appear as star-shaped crystals, as opposed to the block-like, geometric shapes of typical Gummi Blocks. However, the King cannot control the power of the Star Shard on his own.

The Star Shard transports the user, as well as anyone in physical contact with the user, to a different World. If the user does not know how to control the shard, it activates its power randomly and the traveler never knows where he will land or when he will be transported away; thus, Mickey's visits to the same worlds that Terra, Ventus, and Aqua end up are often purely coincidental. It is known that King Mickey is not the only character to come in contact with the Star Shard; both Ventus and Captain Hook have been shown to find King Mickey's Star Shard.

Kingdom Hearts

According to the Ansem Reports found in Kingdom Hearts, Xehanort caused Gummi Blocks to appear in Radiant Garden for the first time, and was also the first to study them. By this time, the Disney Castle world had already made use of this material, as King Mickey appeared in Radiant Garden in a Gummi Ship soon after. Unknown to Xehanort, by opening the door to the heart of Radiant Garden, he also opened the gateway allowing his world to interact with others.

A basic understanding of what Gummi blocks are can be inferred from the Ansem Reports. It appears that when the door leading to a world's heart is opened, the wall that protects that world collapses. Gummi blocks then appear in said world, as in the case of Ansem's study of the meteors, suggesting that the blocks are remnants of the protective wall of the world. The nature and origin of Gummi blocks is what allows them to travel to other worlds.

As mentioned in the Ansem Reports, Gummi blocks are "elastic" and "bond easily" when combined, as evident when creating Gummi Ships. The blocks themselves are very numerous and come in all shapes and sizes with properties attached to each. When added to Gummi ships, they provide advantages such as improved armor, increased acceleration and greater firepower. In both versions of Kingdom Hearts, specialized Gummi blocks can be used for other advantages, such as warp travel in Kingdom Hearts.

Obtaining Gummi Blocks

Kingdom Hearts

The primary way that Sora obtains Gummi Blocks is by destroying enemy Gummi Ships and obtaining blocks or blueprints from their remnants. Rarer blocks, however, can be found in chests throughout the worlds and dropped from certain Heartless.

Later on in Kingdom Hearts, they can be purchased from Cid who, in a nod to his affinity with Airships, is an expert in Gummi engineering. Cid resumes his former work with Gummi Ships when Sora finds half of a Navi-G block in Deep Jungle. An entire set of Gummi Blocks is also awarded as a prize for finding all of 99 Puppies for Pongo and Perdita.

Kingdom Hearts II

Unlike its predecessor, Kingdom Hearts II gummis can only be obtained within the Gummi Ship mini-game, or through purchase in the Gummi Ship editor. Rare gummis are awarded by completing special goals within Gummi Missions, or by destroying special enemies.

Notably, enemy ships in Kingdom Hearts II are not made of Gummi blocks, but are in fact actual ships.
