  • Dawson Casting: In the remake, Sora is supposed to be fourteen at this point like in the original Kingdom Hearts, yet the voice of Haley Joel Osment sounds nothing like a kid anymore. Averted in the original Game Boy Advance, however, because Sora's voice came from sound files reused from Kingdom Hearts.
  • Fan Nickname: The Riku Replica is occasionally referred to as "Repliku."
    • It's even his official name in the D-Report in the German version.
  • Marth Debuted in Smash Bros: The Diamond Dust and One Winged Angel keyblades are in this game. They actually came from Final Mix, which nobody outside of Japan saw without importing it.
    • The Neoshadows, who only showed up in the original game in the secret ending, but were limited to a secret cutscene, and similarly to the above Keyblades were introduced as actual enemies in Final Mix. They return in this game.
  • No Export for You: Subverted. Re:Chain of Memories got an American release in December 2008. About 18 months later. Meanwhile, Europe and Australia are still screwed.
  • The Other Darrin: Every Organization member except Axel[1] got a different and professional voice actor once they appeared in a fully-voiced game.
  • What Could Have Been: Deep Jungle was intended to have made a return. The card for the keyblade obtained from that world was actually programmed in the game, but due to copyright infringements, Deep Jungle was never featured.
  1. Axel arguably still applies for the English version; due to Non Dubbed Grunts, Keiji Fujiwara was used in the English version as well, and later English installments replaced him with Quinton Flynn
