I die a lot in Kingdom Hearts, especially during boss battles. Is there any way to skip the cutscenes that often occur before them? I am tired of seeing the same cutscene four or five times while I struggle with a particular boss.

In the first game, no. This was a major gripe from fans about the game. They added it in for the Rereleased version, but that is Japan only. The ability is added in later games, however.

Argh. :( I guess I have to learn to just do better in battles ;) – Ash Jul 14 '12 at 2:13
Thankfully the first game is pretty easy once you get the hang of it. – Shinrai Jul 14 '12 at 2:26
@Shinrai Are you sure you actually got to the second Riku battle? :D – TylerShads Jul 25 '12 at 20:00
@TylerShads - Yeah. I still maintain that the first game, even on highest difficulty, is relatively easy. – Shinrai Jul 25 '12 at 21:00
See, I have a much easier time in 2. Cleared proud mode a few times with no effort. – TylerShads Jul 25 '12 at 21:44
