About this mod

Adds the Coliseum with a whole host of features to the Realm of Gods in Olympus.

Permissions and credits

Unzip the file and put it in "/KINGDOM HEARTS III/Content/Paks/~mods/".
Now simply head over to Apex in the Realm of Gods, and Meg and Pegasus will help you over to the Coliseum.


The Coliseum is quite flexible and should be compatible with almost anything. That said, there are still some things that could interfere with it:
  • Not compatible with mods that modify the Realm of the Gods umap file.
  • Older versions of my own mods, notably Improved Movement or Enemy Healthbars, may cause crashes. Simply update them.
  • Modifying the different ENVs and Checkmaps that the mod loads lighting from can break lighting.
  • The Coliseum modifies Olympus Area Name, Save Area, Treasure, and the Lucky Emblem datatables.


There are a ton of features, and it's difficult to list them all, but here are some highlights:
  • New area - The Coliseum has been added to the Realm of the Gods overworld, featuring an area name, custom mini-map, and save point.
  • New collectibles - Two Treasure Chests and one special Lucky Emblem have been added to the Coliseum.
  • New NPCs - Meg, Phil, and Pegasus are here to help you out, now with voice acting!
  • Cups, old and new - Recreated cups from KH1 and KH2, as well as new ones!
  • Scoring system - You gain score from defeating enemies. You gain more the faster you defeat them and the higher your health percentage.
  • Coliseum menu - Talk to Phil, and a menu with loads of cups becomes available.
- Press F, Triangle, etc. on the Series Menu to open Settings. Here you can change your settings and delete your progress.
- Profiles - Change your profile to change your saved progress.
- Crowd Density - The amount of people in the audience.
- Crowd Volume - Set the volume of the crowd's cheering.
- Unlock Everything - Gives access to all cups and matches regardless of progress.
- No Restrictions - Disables restrictions such as those on Forms and Shotlocks.
- Always Scale Enemies - Scales enemies to match your level.
- Press F, Triangle, etc. on the Cup Menu to activate Hard Mode, similar to Paradox Cups from KH2.
- Party override - Press  FTriangle, etc. on the Match select menu to open a menu that allows you to set player and allies in the Coliseum.
  • Crowd - A Kingdom Hearts first: an actual crowd! The crowd density can be adjusted, and their size and colours are randomized.
  • Progression gating - Cups are locked off based on your progress in the game. This can be circumvented in the settings.
  • Cup rewards - Completing a cup for the first time will grant you various rewards.
  • Trophy stand - There's a stand in the Coliseum for all the trophies you've earned.
  • Coliseum Crown - Earned by completing all main cups. Can be loaded in other worlds by adding "ColiseumCrown" to the ModLoader.
  • Rulesets - Matches come with a variety of rulesets and restrictions.
  • Dynamic lighting and music - Music and lighting is set on a per match basis, giving a lot of flexibility.
  • Dynamic party - The player and party members are set on a per match basis.
...and a whole lot more.

Recommended Mods
Party REHAUL AI - this makes all party members function properly outside their intended fights.

User-Created Content
This will require some modding know-how, but here's the guide for it.
Once complete the new .pak file can simply be placed in your mod folder.
If you've made your own series, please upload it on the Nexus with the Coliseum as dependency.


The mod is in a good state, but there are still things that need to be added or improved:
  • Balancing is still incomplete, a lot of enemies remain untouched or need further changes. This has proved challenging and time-consuming.
  • Custom enemies, including Sephiroth, is something I want to include eventually. Some custom enemies have been made.
...and more polish and fine-tuning.

Known Bugs

  • There's a Concurrency Error that sometimes occur. C-Mod may still cause this error when attempting to load in certain enemies.
Major Bugs
  • Some enemies have issues when spawned, such as not using path finding or bosses relying on external functions. This sadly means some enemies are kind of broken or simply won't work.
Minor Bugs
  • The Moogle Shop sometimes doesn't want to appear.
  • While cup restrictions can stop you from activating forms, they still appear among your reaction commands.
  • Team Attacks from non-standard party members could put you outside the arena.
  • Losing as a player other than Sora will cause the player's death animation to bug out.
  • Enemies can leave "attacks" or effects when they die.
  • Player and allies don't idle underwater properly the first time they are underwater on transition.
  • Focus meter greys out after swimming, and doesn't return to normal afterwards.
  • Custom NPCs can be stood on.
  • Starting a tutorial and returning to the Realm of the Gods will not load in the Coliseum.
  • Using a shotlock while a match is being completed can cause camera issues, at least for Aqua and Riku.
  • Sora as an ally can cause issues, often being replaced with other allies, or not appearing. This is not caused by the Coliseum.
