Scan is the ability that appears in every Kingdom Hearts game except Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories. It allows the player to view the enemy's HP. In Kingdom Hearts its AP Cost is 1 and in Kingdom Hearts II its AP Cost is 2. In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Scan is found as an Ability Panel and has two variants, Range Extender and Auto-Lock. Range Extender allows the user to lock on to enemies even if they are far away and Auto-Lock allows the user to automatically lock on to available targets while attacking.
