In Kingdom Hearts III, you learn early on in your adventure about Lucky Emblems, which are Mickey Mouse symbols that you’re encouraged to photograph with your Gummiphone. The reward for photographing Lucky Emblems isn’t made entirely clear at first, but know that doing so will . If that entices you, then we encourage you to always be on the lookout. Sora, Donald, and Goofy often note when a Lucky Emblem is nearby, so take the time to investigate. They’re usually hidden behind objects, on walls, or somewhere up above.
Depending on the difficulty level you’ve chosen, the number of Lucky Emblems you need to get the secret ending will vary. If you’re playing on easy, you need to get them all, but any difficulty level above that requires less. We’ve yet to collect the full data on how much you need for each difficulty level, but just know that you should start making a habit of snapping shots of these cleverly hidden symbols.
Seeing as you’re here, the importance of this task isn’t lost on you! To help you nab that secret ending, we’ve collected the locations of every Lucky Emblem below. It helps to know that the game organizes all the Lucky Emblems on your Gummiphone in order of where you find them in the world, so if you’re missing one but have the others around it, try covering the ground in-between the two. But if the shots below aren’t enough to point you in the right direction, for further clarification on where each one is.
It’s worth noting that getting all the Lucky Emblems also nets you Orichalcum+, an essential synthesizing material required to craft the best Keyblade in the game, the Ultima Weapon. Photographing all 80 Lucky Emblems is but one of the few ways to get an Orichalcum+; you need seven to craft the Keyblade.

Olympus is a great sampler of the open design of the game’s maps. When you start your journey here alongside Hercules, you unfortunately aren’t made aware of Lucky Emblems, but you might’ve noticed their presence.

While Arendelle is a beautiful winter wonderland, it’s rather difficult to find many of its Lucky Emblems given how its copious amounts of snow makes a few of its areas look rather similar to each other.
