The Pain and Panic Cup is the first tournament at the Underdrome in Kingdom Hearts II and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, and all of the enemies within are set at level 20. It locks the use of Drive Forms, but reduces the MP consumption of Limits. The Pain and Panic Paradox Cup is a harder form of the Pain and Panic Cup, with all enemies capped at level 60. It is unlocked after completing the Goddess of Fate Cup.
Pain and Panic Cup
Fight alongside your friends. The Drive Gauge can't be used but Limits consume less MP than usual.
No experience is gained.
- Match 4
The player should use magic against the Hot Rods so that it is easier to defeat them while staying out of their range.
- Match 8
Although only 60 seconds is needed to stay alive for this match, it is an excellent opportunity to amass points by using Magnet and Thunder on the Rapid Thrusters.
- Leon & Yuffie
Points can not be collected in this match, so the player should just focus on defeating Leon and Yuffie. As Leon's attacks are more powerful than Yuffie's, he should be targeted first. Once he is down, focus all attacks on Yuffie as she warps about. The players should use the more generous availability of Limits to his or her advantage.
