While playing Kingdom Hearts 3, you’ll come across various side missions you can complete on your journey, from cooking stat-boosting meals with Remy from Ratatouille to searching for hidden Lucky Emblems, as well as taking photos with your Gummiphone for a Moogle shopkeeper.
There are 20 different photos you’ll need to take for this photo-loving Moogle, and each one will net you a different reward. These rewards are generally accessories and rosettes that offer stat boosts and elemental resistances, so you’ll want to collect all 20 of them. The photo missions unlock as you progress through the story, so don’t forget to come back and check what’s available every so often.
Photo Mission 1 - Flame Core
“I need oven mitts to handle that hothead, kupo.”
For the first Photo Mission, the Moogle wants a photo of a Flame Core. These Heartless are found early in the game.
Location: You’ll find plenty of Flame Cores in Olympus. Head to the Overlook spawn point in Thebes and go down the stairs to your right. You should encounter a horde of them at the bottom. You might want to take a few snapshots of the Flame Core, as they move around a lot and the game might not register it on your first try.
|Reward: Firefighter Rosette|
Photo Mission 2 - Water Core
“That fiend keeps getting my pom-pom wet, kupo!”
The Moogle is looking for a photo of a Water Core this time.
Location: Water Cores can be found most easily in Monstropolis. Jump to the Ground Floor spawn point in The Factory, hop in the elevator and go up one level. Walk past the first group of Heartless until you reach a room with yellow pipes. A bunch of Water Cores should spawn here. Like with the Flame Core, make sure to take a few pictures until it registers.
|Reward: Umbrella Rosette|
Photo Mission 3 - Chief Puff
“Fluffy doesn't always mean nice, kupo!”
The Moogle is looking for a fluffy Heartless - Chief Puffs.

“I love watching the tram go by at twilight, kupo.”
The Moogle loves the trams of Twilight Town.
