Template:Game Stop (ストップ Sutoppu?), Stopra (ストプラ Sutopura?), and Stopga (ストプガ Sutopuga?) magic are spells used by Sora, Donald, and other characters and enemies that utilize the element of Time.

Along with Gravity and Aero, Stop and its more powerful forms were absent from Kingdom Hearts II, having been replaced by Magnet and Reflect.


Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep

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 Effects. Enemies inflicted by Stop will not move or attack for a short amount of time.

Time Splicer, an Attack Command only usable by Ventus and Aqua, inflicts Stop on nearby enemies and deals blows to the them, resembling the Lethal Frame sleight from Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, except that you deal damage to multiple enemies.

Kingdom Hearts

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.
