Grandstander (パフォーマンス Pafōmansu?, lit. "Performance"), also known as Performance in Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, is a minigame that can be played as Roxas or Sora in Kingdom Hearts II, and by Roxas again in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days. Similar to the Rare Truffle and Mushroom #8, the point of the game is to keep the ball in the air by attacking it for as long as you can.

Kingdom Hearts IIEdit

StrategyEdit

Each hit knocks the balloon up slightly and each combo finisher sends it flying. Lock on and try to hit the balloon toward a corner. If you swing too early, you will likely lose your combo.

Advanced tacticsEdit

Equip a long Keyblade prior to doing this task. This increases your range, thus minimizing your chances of missing. "Combo Plus" abilities are useful, but do not equip a finisher technique. If the technique takes too long to perform, a ball that is hit far away may hit the ground before you can approach it.

Another good tactic is to equip Fatal Crest or simply the Berserk Charge ability, remove all MP Haste abilities, lock on, then knock the ball into the air. Knock it high, cast Cure, then jump up and continuously attack the ball. Eventually, you will reach the top of the map and be in the air beating the ball and adding hits, this will continue until your MP fully recharges. When your MP recharges, drop towards the ground and continually cast Thunder to keep the ball in the air.When it is high enough, cast Cure again, and repeat the cycle. A good round of this can add over 100 hits.
