Country of the Musketeers



First Appearance: 
KINGDOM HEARTS 3D: Dream Drop Distance (2012)
Origin: Mickey, Donald, Goofy: The Three Musketeers (2004)

Side: Sora

Much to his surprise, Sora found himself making the acquaintance of Mickey back when he was still in training. In this world, Mickey, Donald, and Goofy were still getting the hang of being "Royal Musketeers."

Their current mission was to keep the Princess's carriage safe. Sora offered to help, but along the way, a giant Nightmare attacked and the Princess was kidnapped by the Beagle Boys. Mickey, Donald, Goofy, and Sora dashed to the rescue and saved the Princess.

That night, however, Donald abandoned his post. Now that he knew their own captain had been after the Princess all along, he was just too chicken to keep being a Musketeer, no matter what Mickey said.

But when Captain Pete showed up and nabbed Mickey, Donald had a change of heart. He, Sora, and Goofy set off to rescue their friend, and reminded each other of what made them true Musketeers. With Mickey rescued, it was time to go after Pete.

Mickey and friends confronted their captain, oblivious to the trap they had walked right into. A huge crate came plummeting down from above; Sora would never reach them in time! But before our heroes could be squashed, the crate mysteriously vanished. Sora knew it was Riku that saved them.

Mickey and the others took care of the Princess while Sora dealt with Pete.

With the villain out of the way, Mickey and the others were finally dubbed real, honest-to-goodness Royal Musketeers. Together they shouted the famous words: "All for one, and one for all!"

Knowing he would always be connected to Riku, Sora unlocked the Sleeping Keyhole.

Side: Riku

Riku spotted Pete going into a building and decided to tail him. Inside, Pete and the Beagle Boys were (predictably) up to no good. Sensing Mickey, Donald, and Goofy were in danger, Riku stayed on the villains' tails.

He rescued Princess Minnie, who had been locked inside a large box. She confirmed that Pete was leading Mickey and friends into a trap. Only a special gadget could save them, and right now it was in the Beagle Boys' clutches.

Riku got the gadget back all the same. When Minnie thanked him, she likened him to a "Musketeer" and taught Riku the Musketeers' motto: "All for one, and one for all!"

Riku rolled his eyes at first, but then realised the words spoke volumes for he and Sora's friendship. Remembering their connection, he unlocked the Sleeping Keyhole.
