In Kingdom Hearts II: Final Mix, a new side quest was added to encourage players to level up their drive forms. Puzzle mode (found in the collections section of Jiminy's Journal) allows you to complete six puzzles with official art, using a total of 144 pieces that you find across the worlds of Kingdom Hearts II. Many of these puzzle pieces require you to know abilities like High Jump (learned by leveling Valor Form) or Glide (learned by leveling Final Form). With this guide, you can find all of the puzzle pieces and earn some unique rewards for putting the puzzles together. Let's start with the Awakening puzzle!

Note: If you're on mobile, you can scroll the tables to the right to see the specific locations of each piece.

Awakening Puzzle

This puzzle has 12 pieces and all pieces can be found in the first three worlds, so you will probably finish this one first. Your reward will be an AP Up.
