This page is a list of all optional item locations in Kingdom Hearts and its Final Mix version, excluding items received through Trinity Marks. Aside from Trinity Marks, the only other items not listed are those received after defeating mandatory bosses or by sealing Keyholes, nor those that you have to collect as part of the story. Collectibles are generally sorted by when they are able to be acquired at the earliest convenient moment, without going out of the way from what the plot intends, unless the relevant area is easily available and not visited at all, and without abusing exploits or bugs.

In several instances chest contents where changed or swapped around in the Final Mix version compared to the original, particularly those containing Dalmatians, but also several gummi blocks and accessories. If a specific chest has two different items listed, then the first can only be found in the original version, and the latter only in the Final Mix version.
