A Power Boost as seen in Kingdom Hearts II

Power Boost (also called Power Up) is an item that raises your Strength by one point. Like the AP Boost, it can only be used from the stock menu once obtained. They can be found in treasure chests and made through item synthesis.

In Kingdom Hearts Final Mix: Beginner Mode, Sora starts off with 8 Power Ups in his stock.

  • Sora's max Strength in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix is 152. This can be raised to 171 with Full Blooms and Fenrir, and to 177 by using a Drive Form.
  • After passing the Door to the Final Battle in Kingdom Hearts II, all power and magic boosts are negated.
  • Increasing Sora's Strength increases the damage of Goofy's Limits and Genie's Valor "Sonic" Limit.
