Zero EXP (EXPゼロ EXP Zero?) is an ability which appears in Kingdom Hearts II, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix. It was also added to the original game in Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX.
It prevents the player from gaining EXP for as long as it is equipped. This ability allows the player to complete the game without gaining EXP, and therefore staying at level 1, resulting in a more challenging play-through. In Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, "EXP Zero" requires one AP to equip.
