Having Area2Ds in different scene instances interact

I’m trying to make a platform fighting game, and I’m using area2Ds as hurtboxes and hitboxes, under a KinematicBody2D, which I’m using as the character. The KinematicBody2D is it’s own scene, so I can make multiple instances of it. I need the Area2Ds uto be able to detect each other across different instances of the character. Is this possible?

Once they are added to the sceneTree then its mighty possible

Connect the Area2D’s signals body_entered(body) and body_exited(body) to your script or call the get_overlapping_bodies() function from the Area2D node.

func _on_body_entered(body):

func _on_body_exited(body):

And alternate approach, you could add each KinematicBody2D instance to a group and iterate the group to find each member’s distance from another and react accordingly

Sorry, how do I add the Area2Ds to the main scene tree so that the they can interact?
