Stop (ストップ Sutoppu?), Stopra (ストプラ Sutopura?), and Stopga (ストプガ Sutopuga?) magic are spells that appear in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix and Kingdom Hearts Re:coded. They utilize the element of time.
Much like the spell in Kingdom Hearts and Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Stop makes an appearance in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.
Stop will give enemies the Stop Status Effect. Enemies inflicted by Stop will not move or attack for an amount of time, depending on the tier of spell used, and will display a clock above their head. Stop inflicts a three-second freeze, Stopra six-second, and Stopga twelve-second.
By using Stop, Sora can prevent a target from moving for a limited amount of time. As the rank of Stop increases to Stopra and then Stopga, its range and duration increase. The duration of Stop, Stopra, and Stopga can be determined by taking Sora's Max MP and adding 2 to it. When a frozen enemy is attacked, no damage is dealt at first, but the accumulated damage is dealt when Stop wears off.
After the keyhole in Hollow Bastion is revealed, the efficiency of Stop against a foe is reduced to 60% of what it once was for many enemies.
