Shortly after Riku retrieves an item known as the Stage Gadget from the Beagle Boys, he returns backstage to stop the trap that Pete has set for Mickey, Donald and Goofy. As Riku runs towards the machinery, the Holey Moley pops out from one of its holes and knocks Riku off his feet before ducking back into the hole. While Riku scans the room for it, it briefly reappears on the wall behind him and taps him on the back before disappearing again. Momentarily confused, Riku glances over his shoulder and spots the Nightmare on the far wall. He then engages it in battle, muttering how "they just never want to make this easy". After a long battle Riku managed to defeat the Holey Moley. Shortly after defeating the Holey Moley, Riku returns the gadget to its place and uses it to disable Pete's trap.
