"The Genie of the Lamp"


"The Price of Greed"

"Devil's Grin" is the twenty-first chapter of Kingdom Hearts. It was first collected in Kingdom Hearts Volume 2 by Tokyopop and republished in Kingdom Hearts Final Mix Volume 1 by Yen Press.

Synopsis Edit

Carpet flies over the desert, nearing Sora, Donald Duck, Goofy, and Aladdin as they discuss a way to disembark to Agrabah. Aladdin suggests calling Genie, but Carpet interrupts by crashing into Sora, shooting him into the air. Abu frantically screeches at Aladdin as he introduces the carpet and the monkey to Sora, Donald, and Goofy. The three decide to ride the magic carpet to Agrabah, but Abu interrupts by announcing that Jasmine has been kidnapped.

At the entrance to the Cave of Wonders, Jasmine is bound and gagged while Jafar and the Heartless stand by. Iago asks his master if he thinks that Aladdin will come to rescue Jasmine. Jafar assures Iago that Aladdin will arrive with the magic lamp and reveals that they let Abu free so that he can inform Aladdin. Jasmine overhears and wishes for Aladdin to stay away. Jafar claims that by having the magic lamp and the powers of darkness, he will become the ruler of the world. Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Aladdin arrive, demanding that Jafar let Jasmine free. Jasmine manages to remove the gag around her mouth and informs Aladdin that it's a trap. Iago quickly steals the lamp and drops it into Jafar's hands who muses that Genie has a new master. Jafar summons the Heartless and orders them to get rid of Sora and company.
