Goofy was more useful in KH1.
No MP Gift = useless
agreed. i'm actually surprised that Goofy ever had that ability. if it wasn't for his weak amount of MP, it wouldn't be realistic. i'd say Sora and Donald were about 3:1 to Goofy's MP, so i guess it worked out in the end.
in KH1, Goofy's Strength was higher than mine, even when i used Strength Ups on Sora and chose the sword.
