KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory Synthesis Guide

Cue the KINGDOM HEARTS Music!

KINGDOM HEARTS MoM | Waltz

I recently had a really good time diving into the music and creativity of KINGDOM HEARTS in KINGDOM HEARTS: Melody of Memory. This was pretty unexpected, since I hadn’t played any other title in the series. But the best part of Melody of Memory is playing through the wonderful variety of songs. But not all of them are available from the very beginning of the game. Some you have to earn through a process called Synthesis. Which is why I decided to write up this handy guide.

First a couple quick things. Though I was able to chronicle where to find the vast majority of the key materials used in the Synthesis of new songs, there’s a few I don’t recall where I got. I presume that was because I gradually acquired them at set progression points in the game, instead of getting rewarded with them in World Tour. You’ll always get notifications of having unlocked something cause you’ve leveled up enough, or hit a certain benchmark. It’s a constant process. Additionally, by the time I wrote this KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory guide, I had maxed out my Moogle at level 8.

Now, the first part of this guide will focus where to find Synthesis Materials. The part afterwards will chronicle a handful of KINGDOM HEARTS MoM Songs I’m not positive where to find their key Materials. And the final portion will cover how to Synthesize generic gems used in the creation of some of the Songs. But I’m only focusing on the gems actually necessary for crafting these Songs. It would be too unwieldy to focus on gems for other purposes, such as those used in item crafting.

How To Synthesize Those Shiny Gems

KINGDOM HEARTS MoM | Moogle

So there’s a lot of gems in KINGDOM HEARTS MoM, but most of them are acquired randomly. Sure, you’ll get set amounts of certain ones the first time get an All Clear on various World Tour stages, but that’s a one time thing. After that point, you’ll have to grind for them. I just recommend playing through World Tour or the Track Selection to get higher scores. You’ll get enough gems to Synthesize what you need eventually. That said, these formulae should help a bit.

Blazing Shard; Materials required: Frost Shard x 2
Frost Shard; Materials required: Lightning Shard x 2
Lightning Shard; Materials required: Blazing Shard x 2
Betwixt Gem; Materials required: Betwixt Shard x 4
Lucid Gem; Materials required: Lucid Shard x 4
Lucid Shard; Materials required: Pulsing Shard x 3
Pulsing Gem; Materials required: Pulsing Shard x 4
Pulsing Shard; Materials required: Writhing Shard x 3
Mythril Gem; Materials required: Mythril Shard x 5
Twilight Gem; Materials required: Twilight Shard x 4
Twilight Shard; Materials required: Mythril Shard x 2
Writhing Gem; Materials required: Writhing Shard x 4
Writhing Shard; Materials required: Betwixt Shard x 2


And that’s it for this KINGDOM HEARTS Melody of Memory Synthesis guide. Hope it helped, and enjoy playing through this stunning assortment of Disney and Square Enix songs!
