Would anyone be up for a Kingdom Hearts thread? Just started replaying KH1 in the HD collection. I'm on the hardest difficulty and in the beginning I picked up the scepter and dropped the sword. I've had a bit of a hard time in parts but the nostalgia is so intense.
I'd say $200 at most when you get one used. I got a used one off of eBay for about $170, but that's only because the seller forced expedited shipping. He took good care of it, though, because it works just fine.
>Picked up the staff, dropped the sword.
You're going to have -fun-.
So for the hardest time. Choose slow early levels and fast late levels, pick sword, and drop shield?
Yeah it wasn't a romance they were just sort of friends if that.
Chose the same setup, OP.
I just beat Halloween town, level 37.
I think the only difference between Proud and normal is the amount of damage enemies do.
It's kind of annoying getting 2HKO'd by some bosses, but aero is a staple.
Is there any good places to Exp grind?
I think the reason they introduced Xion was to give Roxas a love interest because let's be honest even if you aren't a yaoi shipper it was painfully obvious that Axle was in love with Roxas.
OP here. Currently in Atlantica. I'm a level 30 I think and have cure,stop,and aero on my shortcuts. Something that's really fucking annoying is how fucking fast Donald and Goofy will die. Even if I give them high potions in each of their item slots and have them set to only use them in emergencies they use them up so fucking fast and just die. They're just so fucking useless.
I miss the magic of the first game. I don't know how to describe it really.
I'm still a fan of the others I've played, but it feels like the Disney stuff is just a sideshow now, a formality. And I think the series lost some of its appeal because of that.
You kind of have to wonder how much of that was intentional. I mean did they realize a huge part of the fanbase is yaoi fangirls and decide to throw them a bone? Because there are better ways to get across "these two are best friends".
Yeah the only Disney characters that really matter are Mickey because one of the main protagonists, Yensid because he gives the mark of mastery exam and of course has the angle of being a former team mate of Xehanort, and Donald and Goofy are there I guess.
From atlantica forward I usually sub out goofy for the in-world partner. Ariel has good magic adjustment, Peter Pan can deal decisive damage, and beast can tank and pull decent aggro as long as you need him.
I'll admit, the in-world party characters don't have as much synergy with your group (and can't perform trinities) but they really do help for their world if you're in Proud mode.
Cut off Donald's offensive magic or else he'll waste it all.
Well the thing is I know that the party members that the worlds give you are much better then Donald and Goofy but I know that I'll end up missing Trinity marks and I really don't have to go back to worlds more then I need to.
You do realize Days was written by Nomura himself right? It's why the tone is so much different from the other games. There was no "Roxas needs a love interest" or "Too much yaoi". Just Nomura writing Nomura things.
Hmm well as long as Roxas is the same person as Sora and Namine is the same person as Kairi and Sora and Kairi are in love then Roxas and Namine will be forced to be in with each other. There is nothing genuine about their affection for one another.
As much as it'll mess with my autism having him and Ventus both existing, I'd say Xion.
I like Riku with Namine, even though him and Sora are clearly Square's preferred couple
To that anon that recommended that LP, obiwan's really, really annoying. I know it's a blind playthrough, but my god all he does is whine.
>Waaah what am I doing?
>Waaah what's going on?
>Waaah you're so useless.
Though for this series, I guess a duo or someone else to talk would work best since unless you're just funny, it doesn't work out as a solo LP.
Yes, obiwan362. A LP-er who I was recommended to from an anon here. His mic doesn't grate on my ears, but his irritating fumbling does.
>still keeps getting kicked and not trying a new strategy
>Hurr I'm the king of button mashing though
I just want an entertaining KH LP with someone who's familiar and someone blind. Preferably actually amusing and don't have mics that make me want to bash my head against a wall. But as popular as the series is, it doesn't seem to exist.
Doesn't help that most LPers just drone on about their daily lives and other bland crap unrelated to the series or genre. I'd rather watch a longplay.
I can't handle these. Even when Monty did those music videos after Dead Fantasy I couldn't bring myself to watch.
There's a really autistic one with a backstreet boys song I can't find any more.
Kingdom Hearts fan stuff just isn't as cringey because most of it was only made by 13 year old girls. Compared to Sanic stuff, that is.
Wait so you watch people play the game through videos and they talk through a mic...?
That sounds fucking terrible, I don't think I could watch anyone play a video game like that. How do you care about something like that?
>Mfw I bet they think they're saying funny things too
What is wrong with you people
That would ruin any game for me. I usually don't play story-driven games with anyone. I couldn't stand someone forcing themself to commentate.
Okay I lied. I'd watch people play Mario party drunk.
I still wish we had gotten Rikku instead of Yuffie.
>no final fantasy series will ever break the M-rated barrier and deliver with more mature and overtly sexual and violent content in their top-tier cutscenes
>>no high-impact sexual violence
Exact setup I finished my proud mode run in.
Which type of leveling did you pick?
Currently im attempting the - no changing weapons/accessories and beat game in under 15 hours run
I'm at Ansem, but his bitnipers be killin me hard core. I'd cast aero but I have shit for MP
>see people complain about fighting in atlantica
>swim towards opponent
>watch as sora automatically levels out within reach of heartless
I don't see what everyone's issue is
Ok, so we all know at some point, probably right before final boss fight, Xehanort will actually open up Kingdom Hearts in KH3. So, here's the thing. What the fuck happens when he opens it? It's been 7 games now, and we have no idea what the fuck Kingdom Hearts really is.
Any of you ever go back and watch some of the AMVs that were made in like 2006 that had really low quality footage and tended to use much of the same footage over and over again because there were only like 3 games at that point?
It's form has already been confirmed.
The true KH is the blue one in BBS made by the hearts of the worlds. After BBS it gets plummeted into the Realm of Darkness. KH1's door is the door the RoD. KH2's is an artificial KH, made by the hearts of humanity to apparently the Org's members true hearts, but as seen in DDD it was for other purposes.
Well let's think about it. After the credits of KH2 Sora, Riku, and by extension Kairi get the letter from Mickey. Mickey is shown to write the letter at the end of Re:Coded. This means that Re:Coded takes place between the scene where Sora and Riku and transported to the Destiny Islands after beating Xemnas and the scene where they get the letter. How long did Re:Coded seem to last?
man, the idea that Kingdom hearts was a place didnt come into question for me, even after they pointed it out. I just figured it was a silly title for a cheesy family friendly game.
then Ansem goes to that big white door "KINGDOM HEARTS WHERE I WILL ATTAIN TRUE POWER"
then Sora just goes "LOL NOPE, ITS LIGHT, IVE NEVER BEEN HERE,MY BALLS BARELY DROPPED IVE MADE NO RESEARCH TO BACK UP MY CLAIM"
bam, sucked into the light
I'm ready for THE HURT to be delivered.
God now that I think about it the worlds felt so small in BBS. I don't know if it was BBS hardware or what but it felt more "corridors: the game" than KHII.
It just all felt so small, I hope they do something about it in 2.5. Maybe rescale a bit.
>People saying that partners are worthless
That's more or less true but I've found ways to make them work better for you. You can control your allies (somewhat) with the triangle button, so you can call them back to you to avoid getting hit or tell them to attack another opponent so you can solo one. 1.5 fucks this up because your powerful attacks now use the triangle button too.
You pretty much need Tarzan in his world the first time around because he gets Cure before you do. So you unequip his offensive abilities and make him use defensive ones more frequently. Repeat this logic for everyone who has defensive/healing moves.
Donald gets hit a lot but that restores his MP quickly so he can pretty much always heal, especially when he gets Second Chance.
Goofy should never use special attacks (MP gift and Evolution only) and you should equip him with large shields so that he can run around and deflect attacks for you. This helped me a few times because I picked the staff and didn't learn guard until halfway through the game.
>BAAWWWWW ALL THE WORLDS IN KHII AND BBS ARE HALLWAYS BAWWWW THERE'S NOT ENOUGH ROOM NOMURA PLEASE MAKE THE WORLDS BIGGER
>DDD comes out
>BAWWWWWW NOW THERE'S TOO MUCH ROOM
>small, linear areas with little exploration
This is true for almost all jRPGs now, what the fuck happened? I remember world maps having hidden dungeons/towns and shit and the dungeons/towns having hidden stuff you actually have to look for.
At least Dream Eaters and confetti were with him, it FELT like people were there at least and I guess the Dream Eaters count as "living things".
This shit is worse.
>Aladdin talks about loving Agrabah and how it's always lively
>the cameras are literally panning over empty streets as he says this
Goofy and Aqua are literally the two people in KH with a lick of common sense. MAYBE Pluto too.
He deserves at least that much for the shit he deals with, don't you think?
>This always annoyed me as a kid
>Grind to level 12 on Destiny Island by teching Tidus over and over again
>Look at the stats after the boss battle with the guard armor
>Goofy is still a level higher then you
What the fuck is Pluto's deal in Kingdom Hearts anyway?
He's always running around the worlds for no reason with no clear agenda just doing fuckwhatever, he could be in one world and then out the next and no one does anything to him because he's just a fucking dog in their eyes.
I don't even think Mickey knows what the fuck Pluto is doing.
Anon here playing KH2 for the first time after years from KH1.
Here's some highlights:
>Dropped sword get Magic
>Intro is boring as fuck.
>Finally get to sora, start having fun with donald and goofy
>Mulan world kicked ass
>Beauty & The beast world kicked ass.
>If you die, you get to play as Mickey.
>Fun as fuck, Mickey is basically Yoda.
That's as far as I got, here's hoping the Coliseum is as much fun.
>And emulating the games just do them no justice
what does this even fucking mean? you don't like emulations when the HD collection is essentially just emulating it?
Not to mention PC emulation looks far better then the remake.
>intro is boring as fuck
You talking shit m8?
>that final day atmosphere
>no music, nobodies appearing from nowhere, only then music starts playing to quickly fade after battle
>eerie as fuck
>only you with a mysterious weapon which is more dangerous than helpful
KH2 was my first game in the series and the mood is particularly great. When they said the intro was made to appeal gamers new to the series while filling them with KH1's plot they weren't kidding.
>the first time we see Pluto in KHII is him in The World That Never Was trying to track down Axel for some reason
How did he even get there in the first place? Can Pluto just get away with anything because he's a dog? Does no one suspect him?
Sora's 15 nigger, he do what he want, fuck them police.
In all seriousness, they were probably turned into heartless in the first game. We never saw them in Traverse Town, so they most likely got swallowed up. Best case scenario is they got resurrected like the others if Sora killed their heartless and nobody, but even if they never died or were simply resurrected, they probably forgot about Sora like everyone else in that world did. And it's not like they were close or anything. Sora's entire world is destroyed and his first thing to do is search for Jane Doe and Angsticus, so he probably didn't even care about his parents anyway.
But c'mon man, it's Pluto. He's the only dog that's actually a dog in this game.
I mean, Pluto.
Master Xehanort implies it's the true source of Light. Or at least that's what the Ancient Keybladers believed.
Also going by the questionable canon of X/Chi. It's quite sad that the keyblade war got started by 5 Apprentices who were probably all friends but had different ways they wanted to use to protect the light from it's prophesied destruction.
Tried playing Chain of Memories, people said it played like Megaman Zero. It turns out into a Card Battle bullshit game, gave up. Why didn't the game play like Megaman Zero? That plays closer to a console KH game.
We do have a slight timeframe.
We know a year took place between 1 and 2.
We also know that The time between Roxas being born and Sora fighting the bonus battle (and therefore before he killed A:SoD) was 6 days. So we might be able to assume that they spent roughly that long just preparing for the final battle.
And because in game it doesn't feel any longer maybe each world took a week.
>Master Xeanort finally opens Kingdom Hearts
>Kingdom Hearts is an ancient power that ends up combining all the worlds into one.
>Jack Skellingon and Mulan meet with Simba and Stich
No, where else will I get my smut?
It's not like we get straight doujins.
Everyone suddenly has discussion points thanks to that video.
Because you're only looking at Western crap done by 13 year old girls. Pixiv is the best place to go if you want something from Japan to be given justice. DeviantArt is for Western series.
Like my little pony art done by actual young girls.
>tfw Mickey never got to see Xehanort defeated
>tfw Mickey died before the bullshit plot twists in BBS, Re:coded, and DDD happened
>Mickey truly believed that KH ended at Xemnas' defeat in II and that his last performance in Days was just to fill up missing plot holes
Why are you not using Ariel? She's great. Also, potions will go quickly if you're not careful.
>playing on the highest difficulty
And that's why your bitches are dying so quickly. Don't you know you're on bullshit mode?
>Game begins with Kairi training a la Roxas in KH2
>Handholdan two hour tutorial of the game's battle mechanics, normal mechanics, and gummi ships
Then afterwards, it drops you with a set of worlds and they never try to teach you anything again
>yfw Pluto becomes one of the 13 Darknesses
>Mickey will never know what his own letter at the end of KHII said
Disney Princesses and Disney Villains are both marketing franchises in Disney eyes, so it's justified for them.
Mickey, Donald, Goofy are protagonists, again justified.
>Pluto is the shadow beast Aqua fights at the very end of BBS
>The series lore seems to state that all the worlds were one until the Keyblade War happened
I would assume that meant that they were all connected, not that they're all one giant mass.
They were useful in KH1 where they could actually damage enemies. Donald could use Thundaga and actually wipe out a group of Heartless, or at least severely damage them.
In KH2, at Level 100, they deal next to damage to enemies anyway. They were only useful to disappear for Drives.
I would think that if FFXV had the pc version released and did well, KH3 would certainly be on PC, but I'm actually a little unsure now because it's very possible that Disney would cockblock that.
Start Tutorial as Kairi, with Axel being your companion at some parts.
Then after that you get to play as either Sora or Riku with a switching system somewhere between DDD and BBS, so that you can't finish the game on one character alone but it also doesn't force you to randomly switch.
Then just give Sora and Riku some random good commands, 5 extra levels and a few items then boom.
>accidentally read Pitou
I want re Chain of Memories Angry Sora.
3D Sora was so bad.
>I don't want to take the mastery exam, I don't NEED it, right Riku?
>wait you're taking it too? I want to take the test with Riku too
He did. In order to make himself ready for the final battle, and also to thank the dream eaters.
It seems ominous but it's much better than the original end for DDD Nomura had in mind wherein
Sora does become a vessel and the game ends with Kairi and Riku vowing to resuce him. The rescuing would have been the prologue of 3 and explained why you get level drained.
>Just before the boss battle with Riku-Ansem
>Go to save point in castle chapel
>Gumiship to Traverse Town
>Buy a bunch of accessories that boost darkness resistance
People find this battle hard?
>It seems ominous but it's much better than the original end for DDD Nomura had in mind wherein Sora does become a vessel and the game ends with Kairi and Riku vowing to resuce him. The rescuing would have been the prologue of 3 and explained why you get level drained.
THAT WOULD HAVE BEEN TEN TIMES BETTER WHY DIDN'T WE GET THAT
I'm approaching this series like Naruto. It's been going on for so long that I'm just waiting for it to end. Not necessarily with anticipation, though. I'll be skipping DDD because I can't be bothered to play through it. Hopefully I won't be missing much.
I wish Nomura would do a sequence where Sora violently murders a villainous character like how Gon did to Pitou. I love when heroes show their hatred and drop the optimistic side of their natures for a moment. I don't count CoM because Sora forgot the events and by the time he got his CoM memories back, the events became 100% irrelevant and way too distant to matter.
Xemnas lied to the Organization by stating that they don't have hearts, since he knew that Organization members could develop hearts of their own over time (like Roxas). The organization's true purpose was to have 13 vessels for Master Xehanort, collected all throughout time.
Of the 13, Xemnas and Ansem are memebrs because they came from Terra-Xehanort. Young Xehanort and Master Xehanort are also members. Saix and Xigbar are also members (though Xigbar is half Xehanort for some fucking reason).
There are a total of 6 confirmed members, with 6 unconfirmed members. Sora was supposed to be #13 but he was saved by Axel (now Lea). Riku was rejected because of his journey and triumph through the darkness.
Now Yen Sid and friends have to gather 7 Heroes of Light to battle the reformed Organization 13. They're probably Sora, Riku, Kairi, Mickey, Lea, Aqua, and who knows the last one.
KH3 is the battle between the new Organization, and the heroes of light.
Sora has deteriorated into a generic Shounen Protagonist. He's a Retard at EVERYTHING except fighting. All that's missing is Nomura grabs Sora and makes him randomly adopt a habit for eating large quantities of food like Goku and Luffy. You know Japan loves retards who are only good at fighting and eating.
I've damn near given up on giving a fuck about such a lame protagonist like Sora.
>Hopefully I won't be missing much by not playing DDD
Final battle of KH 3.
The seven warriors are ready to face True Org. XIII.
>Seems like it might really be a 7 v 13.
Xehanort goes nope, and it turns out he sent out a summons directed at anyone evil to come to the the Keyblade Graveyard.
>Suddenly 1million Heartless
>Followed by an assortment of random Diseny and FF villains. (Some of them come late and serve as bonus bosses)
>Heroes look doomed.
>Suddenly Gummy ships fly in out of nowhere and do bombing runs
>All the FF cast members and Companions and some extras flood out
>A small army of Dream eaters appears as well
>Fucking huge ass battle.
Longest number of consecutive bossbattles ever
>Each with a new cast of companions.
Yeah. I like that they made Riku bro tier, but I really wish they hadn't neutered Sora that badly to do it.
Just playing ReMix right now and holy fuck, they're like two different characters. If only because Sora seemed to be aware that he was slightly dim and seemed ashamed of it.
It's the second thing they didn't like. They Veto'd the KH anime because they didn't like the idea that sometimes non-evil characters might fight each other and/or get killed.
Yes it is weird.
This is my fetish.
I agree. CoM Sora is one of my favorites, but he gets the same treatment as Re:Coded Sora. Why can't Sora ever be competent?
Meh, Naruto is 100% unlikable as a series. KH has good concepts but honestly Nomura and the writing staff are irredeemably pieces of shit who should be beaten with a crowbar everytime something seems stupidly executed (so that's a lot of beatings). I frankly turn my brain off when it comes to KH, I fully expect it to be a poorly done pretentious pile of garbage writing. About the only thing I can say the writing has done consistently well is Riku's entire character arc.
It's Xigbar actually Braig at this point?
Hard to tell though.
Also you forget Ven as >>249820334 said.
Also it's weird that Roxas could develop a heart since he already had one (Ven's).
He's still got the Light Realm's keyblade...whatever that means. We still don't really know how significant the Kingdom Key and Kingdom Key D are compared to all the other fucktons of keyblades there are out there
Plus he's got Jesus heart magic
has anyone here got this ive just to get the gummi blueprints
>veto'd KH anime
Oh that takes me back.
Apparently there's a pilot with Sora, Donald, and Goofy in Olympus Coliseum that is trapped in the Disney Vault forever and will never see the light of day.
It's not even stereotypical shounen protagonist syndrome.
How many problems could Sora have avoided in KH2 had he not gotten fucking emotional and charged in?
Fuck, when you're making Donald look calm, you need help.
Life and Times of Scrooge McDuck world when?
Sora can't be competent because Nomura is a joke of a moron. No matter how many times Sora slays a villain they'll live cause....
Nomura - There is no death in Kingdom Hearts.
This is worse than Echiro Oda's "No death unless flashback" rule (except anomalies like Ace/White Beard).
We all agree that DDD has the best opening so far right?
That was totally in-character of him though. He WOULD get all cocky about his skills after saving the world twice over. He was like that in 2 as well, talking hot shit to the Organization and getting way overconfident in his abilities
There IS death in Kingdom Hearts, it's just that no one ever fucking kill anybody.
You can lose your HEART but nobody ever KILLS anybody else. Losing your heart =/= dying. If you die, you literally can't come back to life, if you lose your heart, you can.
Getting shot in the fucking skull won't give you a Nobody, m8.
A good theory is that KH3 will end the Saga with a reboot of the universe and a new beginning. If that comes to pass, then I hope Nomura & the writers are given an editor with a crowbar ready to go to town on them like Joker on Jason Todd.
In Sora's defense, he was ripping shit in literally everyone he came across. I mean, the dude mastered using a keyblade in what, 2 years? God knows how long Ven, Aqua, and Terra had to train. Sora was fucking sleeping for two years and had not even touched a keyblade, yet he wakes up tearing holes in people.
I'd be stroking my fucking beard, too.
>All the good FF characters throughout BBS-KH2
>Neku and the gang
>Every Disney companion
>Even the original Org. XIII helps
>The new Org. XIII
I would die for and ending fight like this
I guess it could be Ven, but it'd have to be late into the story since nobody knows where the fuck he is other than Aqua. Also, isn't his heart inside Sora? I don't know if they can actually take hearts out, let alone the fact that everyone else's heart is in Sora as well, so who knows if he'll actually get HIS heart back.
And Roxas doesn't have Ven's heart. He's Sora's Nobody, and since Sora has Ven's heart he shares Ven's appearance. Roxas originally didn't have a heart, but developed one over time by becoming friends with Axel and Xion.
I'm not sure he does. Though if he did it was probably when Roxas give him the hurt.
I always liked that scene since it showed that Roxas really was okay with Sora being the One.
I mean from KHII it seems like he's just going along because Sora is stronger/has more connections, but after Sora talks to him him he's all "See that's why it has to be"
I always thought he meant metaphysically. I mean clearly people still die of old age.
>Did Sora get shit done?
Yes. Though since he was digital it's not like he could ignore his programming. Anyway, he actually had charm.
He actually has expressions that go past happy and butthurt.
>Eraqus comes back
I know it will happen. Jesus Nomura kill someone. Only deaths we really know are Mufasa and... oh wait just Mufasa. Though him doing the Remember who you are makes little to no sense unless you've seen the movie. Seriously KH2 trying to follow the movie plot while taking out integral parts was one of the many pants on head retarded things.
Can someone explain to me why Axel and Xion, who are supposed to be Roxas's BEST friends.
Both try and kill him? Like what the hell
>How many problems could Sora have avoided in KH2 had he not gotten fucking emotional and charged in?
This. Sora refuses to mature because Nomura wants him to keep living his life being led by his feelings (like a woman). And I hate how in DDD Ansem the Wise PRAISED Sora because he follows his heart even though it makes him easy to trap, easy to lure into danger, and all around cause problems forcing his friends to bail him out. If Riku did not exist in the series, Sora would be DEAD. I seriously wanted Riku to insult him during DDD's ending and tell him off:
"You keep doing this crap! I'm not going to babysit you forever! I have my own life to lead so either shape up or screw off! I'm tired of this garbage where I always have to protect you to make sure you don't do something stupid!"
The best course of action IMO with Sora is to FORCE him to be independent. Make a couple of games where he is 100% separated from everyone. He gets no support from Riku, Kairi, Donald, Goofy, Mickey, etc. Like strand him in an original world where he has to use his own judgement to flat out survive and hopefully mature his mentality.
I thought the scene was supposed to imply that Roxas gave Sora his memories of the events in Days.
Because they love him.
<3Can't say you love someone without trying to murder them first.
>"You keep doing this crap! I'm not going to babysit you forever! I have my own life to lead so either shape up or screw off! I'm tired of this garbage where I always have to protect you to make sure you don't do something stupid!"
Do you know what you're playing?
>"You keep doing this crap! I'm not going to babysit you forever! I have my own life to lead so either shape up or screw off! I'm tired of this garbage where I always have to protect you to make sure you don't do something stupid!"
And then he and Kairi go and live their lives together.
Yeah, if I remember correctly it was taken down by Michael Eisner because he didn't want OMG 2SPOOKE action in a kids show depicting Donald and Goofy beating the shit out of things. I have more pics if you want me to dump them.
>Wait, when does Sora remember what happens in COM?
During the final boss fight with Xemnas in Kingdom Hears 2 FINAL MIX (exclusive mini-cutscene). Sora outright tells Riku he remembers Namine and by default the Castle Oblivion events. But since Sora is in the middle of the final boss fight he can't exactly chill and reflect on what it all means.
With Axel I always figured that it was because he was starting to develop a heart, and felt hurt and betrayed by Roxas. So he goes apeshit and flips out.
You don't even need that. He already got handed a slice of humble pie in DDD. All you need to do is have him go back to a similar characterization as KH1.
That's all I want. Sora to be a kid who got to be a hero, and accepted the responsibilities that came with that.
Kairi would be dead in minutes. And that's if Vanitas is toying with her and isn't in a hurry. Even Aqua a Keyblade Master, passed out after beating him alone.
Why do people want romance in KH? It's supposed to be about friendship.
Man, it always amazes me that they never used Beast as a companion again. He wrecked so much shit.
As said, he was just starting to develop a heart.
If you went your whole life without feeling any emotion, and then suddenly you felt anger, wouldn't you be a bit overwhelmed? Maybe overreact a bit?
Elsa has too much darkness in her heart. Anna's the pure one.
Axel had given up on Roxaa remembering him and was fed up with everything. So he just went along with his orders and fought him to the death.
Xion was a little more complicated. Throughout the course of Days, she was being groomed into a replacement for Roxas (and even Sora). She was siphoning power and memories from the both of them and Xemnas had managed to pull her almost entirely under his control. If things had gone unchecked, The real Sora would have literally ceased to exist and Xion would have essentially become him, memories and all. The Organization would have their keyblade wielder.
Xion forced Roxas to fight and kill her before any of this shit could happen.
I never got the impression Vanitas was worth a damn as a fighter. He got his ass repeatedly handed to him by Ventus/Aqua in both playthroughs that I can't take him seriously. Even when he was juggling Ventus & Aqua at the same time. Still Kairi would logically lose to someone like him due to outright ferocity in his nature. Kairi has no business beating any of the Norts. It will reek of GURL POWAH Feminist shit.
This. If Frozen had existed at the time of KH1 Anna would be a Princess of Heart and there would probable be some shit about Maleficent trying to get Elsa to join her and become part of the counsel of villains.
>Xion forced Roxas to fight and kill her before any of this shit could happen.
Vanitas still rips his shit.
>yfw he dual wields halfway through the battle
Agreed. I want Sora single. The best heroes are single. I can't stand loser pussy begging simps who are in TRU WUV bullshit anymore. Let the Disney characters hook up with their movie love interests, but fuck that shit in the original story.
>I never got the impression Vanitas was worth a damn as a fighter.
>He got his ass repeatedly handed to him
>Damn near kills Ventus early in the game
>could have done so easily if he weren't fucking around
>fighting him and Mickey at the same time until he decides to leave
At what point did Ventus hand his ass to him?
I want Maleficent to make a final stand. As in realizing how much of a joke she was treated as and is ready to knock some heads. And with magic apparently being a rarity and feared int he Frozen world, I can imagine Elsa being weak to her words.
>Even when he was juggling Ventus & Aqua at the same time.
I think that's actually impressive. It's not like Ven was weak or anything either, he was just too kind. There had to be a reason Xehanort took him of all people in after all. And Aqua had Mickey too. Now imagine him going all out on 1 little girl with nothing else to really focus on.
>mfw JM can make Roxas and Ventus sound alike but differently at the same time
It spookied me out in DDD's ending.
If its seriously one on one, then Kairi beating Vanitas would be a shitty development. Princess of Heart means dick shit, it just means she's a part of a set of MacGuffins. It doesn't mean any actual SUPA KEYBLADE POWAH. Of course knowing Retardura he'll probably go down that route, he is Retardura for a reason.
I think that's amazing, same with Sora and Vanitas. I honestly didn't hear Sora at all until I really concentrated.
>Robin in Young Justice sounds like Roxas
I can't hear him as anything else. T-thanks McCartney.
If you want to cheat, you can grind until you play past 100 hours. The clock resets and turns green to signify that you've played past 100 hours, but you still get the trophy.
Well considering she's a Princess of Heart she has the power to manipulate the power of light. This is how she, though accidentally, brings Sora back to life and how the other 6 help to ward off the power of darkness in Hollow Bastion. So it's safe to assume that if Kairi were to learn how to manipulate the power of light willingly she could use it in an offensive way.
>You will never be raped by Larxene
>You will never wrestle a reluctant Larxene and have rough sex together
It's either because of the fact that Xemnas sorta had her under mind control or because she already knew the truth about Sora and that their continued existence would keep him asleep forever
Sorry faggot, Ariel has "darkness", apparently.
Or maybe it's because being out of water for the shit that happens in Hollow Bastion would have been too awkward.
I can't find any of the KH females attractive. They're so...unable to get the blood pumping. They look infertile like lacking in the spark of libido. Compare that to the females in Street Fighter or Legend of Zelda. KH females are garbage. Midna in her cursed form is hotter than "snowflake" Aqua.
I was just about to basically say >>249826875
Alice is insane, but pure. Ariel is a soulless ginger. This is why Anna could actually replace or fill in the spot for a new Princess since unlike her sister, she's not filled with
Well yeah of course she wanted to exist, but she eventually would have ended up killing Roxas anyway because of how she was absorbing their power.
She did meet Namine and got the whole story from her, so I guess she decided to act for the greater good.
No she's just an ordinary citizen of Radiant Garden. What she's doing with her grandmother in the castle library in the flash back is never explained. Maybe Ansem had it opened to the public? Also it's not that they are princesses but that they have hearts of pure light. The only reason Maleficent called them the Princesses of hearts was because 5 of them just happened to be princesses.
Is Leonard Nemoy going to record his lines for KH3? I thought he said he was done doing VO work.
He has a more dickish sounding voice than the tosspots voicing Xemnas and Ansem
Also, keep in mind that Ariel willingly did that contract shit with Ursula. And that Ursula is DARKNESS.
Aside from the out of water shit, Ariel is pretty rebellious, moreso than the other princesses. I can see why it's justified she isn't one of them.
>tfw took staff dropped shield
>tfw the whole game i've been dying in two hits
>But the damage game ridikulus
Spam Firaga, fellow Magic anon, you have the MP to spare.
>Tfw beat Kurt Zisa without Second Chance at level 51 and the lowest amount of item slots out of the three choices.
>I can now Zantetsuken, making up for my lack of physical damage and reliance on Ripple Drive for ground based damage combos
>All those Air Combo pluses though.
Feels too good, mang. I am playing on proud mode Final Mix. Currently going to beat Phantom
Shuld be gud.
>Leonard Nimy is a famous actor
>he reads the total nonsense "12 SELVES EVERYONE'S XEHANORT" script from DDD and knocks it out of the park anyway
why is it that the bad guys are always great voice actors in this nonsense
>Not licking Paul St. Peter's voice.
>Not replaying the final Xemnas fight just to jerk off while he shouts "HERE" "BIND" "FIRE" "WE SHALL GO TOGETHER"
Are you gay, son? I agree with you on Ansem Seeker of Darkness' voice. Goddamn it's just not the same as Billy Zane.
I still get a boner listening to his speech in KH1 just before the fight starts.
Xion understood that she was an unnatural existence that was kept alive at the direct expense of another, and that her whole purpose was to be used as a slave for the Organization who she discovered were evil as shit.
She knew what she had to do?
She was always planning to lose.
But chances are she might have been able to merge with Sora.
Yeah she's definitely the something of Radiant Garden since she had access to Ansem's Castle.
Since BBS I've assumed RG has a Constitutional monarchy wherein there's a royal family and then an actual government. But it seems Ansem was President for life.
The hell does that Make Ienzo then?
Daily reminder that Aqua has the best battle grunts.
>Not licking Paul St. Peter's voice.
>implying I wouldn't
Terranort shows up in BBS and does the DARKNESS speech from KH1 word-for-word
Fucking goosebumps man
She's human now. Besides I wish Nomura would do a Pass the Idiot Ball with the Princesses of Heart to remove Kairi's status as one of them so she's a regular girl and give the status to an actual Disney female from the Disney Princess Brand.
Good battle grunts and shouts, terrible line delivery, perfect tone of voice. Same with Terra. They always fall short of the mark when actually trying to act.
You just did. Congradulations. Aqua best girl all day every day followed by Larxene>Namine>Xion.
This series has shit tier women. All of them bland and unappealing (fuck you in advance). The women are so sterile like they are made in a generic manner unable to be seen as attractive.
Midna in her cursed form is hotter than every KH girl combined. Oh yeah I went there, fuck off again.
It's not as bad in Final Mix, you get a few of your combo pluses from the Colosseum i instead of level. Plus you learn Ripple Drive so early and it's a stupidly powerful Combo Finisher( Damage is based off your Max MP) so less combo hits means Ripple Drive triggers sooner and its a area of effect magical nuke that fucks heartless up.
>Oh yeah I went there, fuck off again.
I'll fight you anon. Don't disrespect my waifu.
KH females have boring personalities, that's why they're lousy faps. And Larxene could be passable in personality for not being a generic Nice Girl, but her annoying voice acting and lack of a good figure (doesn't help she's wearing that cloak all the time) kills it.
Legend of Zelda in general is able to have actually attractive women. Hyrule Warriors hasn't come out and there is a surprising amount of interest/porn of that masked woman and the new Great Fairy. KH can't design hot women for shit.
>No wanting those kissable lips
You're trolling, right?
Birth By Sleep was the best KH game.
>Multiple characters, each with their own unique abilities
>Interconnected story line
>Sora/Rikku/Kairi aren't center-stage
>Actually had a really fun Extra-Difficulty, especially if it was played initially.
I honestly can't wait to play it again in HD.
>lots of mini games
>just right story even if Terra was stupid
>you will never wonder why Vanitas looks like Sora ever again
Only real blunder I can recall were Isa and Lea being so unimportant. Dilan and Aeleus (?) had bigger roles.
>In the beginning parts, I'd agree.
And again, I don't agree. It's pretty much a normal playthrough until you reach Olympus Colosseum and Neverland. Then enemies and bosses just become a pain.
I feel like the game is too short for the expectations it has.
A lot of your HP, commands, and everything else is only halfway leveled up by the time you reach Keyblade Graveyard.
>Ven in a coma
>Aqua in general
>Terra spending 10 years with Xehanort in darkness
KH3 may wrap up the saga, but I'm sure KH4, which may be like KH1 in terms of scale, will go right back to someone losing their soul. Only bad end KH3 may offer would be killing Saix since I'm sure Lea will try and save him.
>tfw no playable Aqua in KH3
The only good protagonist, we won't even get Birth By Sleep 2
None of the bad things in the universe would have happened if Terra and Ventus would have just listened to Aqua and Mark Hammil
>all those princess worlds in the beginning of BBS
Talk about the epitome of boredom.
So... Organization XIII remembers Xion, and so does Axel. Roxas remembers her at the last minute,
>Who will I have ice cream with?
but does he remember her in KH2? I'm a bit confused.
>a sequel to a prequel
Of course that won't happen.
>Aqua x Cinderella
That was great. Also Terra acting like a dork was gold. I want to see more of the OCs being awkward with someone outside their universe.
Also Drakengard reference/cameos when?
>Xion was voted "Best New Character" in the 2009 Nintendo Power Awards.
Shut up you emasculated beta faggot bitch. Men who like to play as women should be beaten to death. God I'm so sick of the "Women are just men with tits" mentality. Any guy who thinks like that to justify female protagonists and playable characters needs to castrated.
No everyone forgot about her. It's possible that Xemnas and other 2 vessels still remember in a vague " We know we had a doll that should have done our plan but now it's gone and we don't really remember when it disappeared"
>Clearly it failed and was erased from existence.
I just like to force myself to think that Eraqus simply raised them all not to judge and act a certain way when visiting others. See Aqua immediately bowing to Minnie after finding out her status or Terra calling Merlin Elderliness or whatever.
>KH voice acting
probably my favorite aspects of the series and how consistent it is
can't believe we've had the same voice actors for the past 10 years, not to mention most of the original disney voice actors
It's because the actors love the series. They always seem so happy to talk about it. Even more than the people interviewing them.
Xemas>Y. Xehanort>M. Xehanort>Ansem
I like them all but Xemnas is my favorite.
In hollow bastion or some place Sora learns that hearts have a light that never goes out or someshit, even in 2deep4u darkness. Kingdom hearts is in 2deep4u darkness and has heart in the name so Sora took a fucking gamble that it was the light in the DARKNESS
Yes. Also Riku is still sexiest guy.
>Longest number of consecutive bossbattles ever
>>Each with a new cast of companions.
So its gonna be like sephiroth at the end of ff7 with 3 teams but sora doing the final blow?
What if all the Xehanort incarnations just end up betraying each other?
I mean, can you really see them all actually working together? I think they're way too self-absorbed and egotistical to take orders from any of their other selves.
I'm not sure to be honest, I know it scales in proportion to your current Max MP prettly heavily, KH1 is wonky with Magic Based damage as you don't have a proper magic stat like in later games, so All magic damage is proportional to your Max MP.
I'd like for this to happen, but doubtful if it does. Ansem and Xemnas both acknowledge the strongest rule and dominate everything. They know that Xehanort is stronger than them, so they just choose to follow regardless of whatever thoughts they may have. And it's possible trying to rebel may end their own existences. Again.
Truly you fools underestimate the power of Doorginization XIII...
I just want Caim or Zero as a wandering NPC. As in you'd see them in worlds FF characters have appeared before. Talk to them in each location, maybe do a small quest, and then get Angelus/Mikhail as a summon.
>old man Sid is the GOAT keyblader
>steps out the tower to kick ass like Yamamoto in Bleach
>First you have Ven
>His heart get's split, Sora's heart saves him
>Ven's dark half becomes Vanitas, looks like Sora
>Ven shatters his own heart to defeat Vanitas after becoming complete, goes full coma
>Sora grows up, has Ven's heart again
>Kairi also hides in there for some reason
>Sora releases his own heart
>Sora's memories of Kairi become Xion
>Sora's Nobody, Roxas, has Ven's heart
>Namine's Kairi's nobody but with Sora's memories for some reason
>Roxas is moodier than Ven because his heart isn't full light anymore (he's reincorporated Vanitas)
>Xion gets absorbed by Roxas. Roxas can use Sora's keyblade and Ven's keyblade.
>Roxas gets absorbed back into Sora.
>Namine gets absorbed back into Kairi
Looks like Hayner's gonna join the party. Omlette for mage assistant. Pence for team cheerleader.
>MX loses to Terra as an old fart
>loses to Terra again when he has his body
>loses to Aqua while possessing Terra
Xehanort aint all that strong, it's just his body shenanigans that keep him going
He never really fought. He was just using words and avoiding combat. If anything he let Terra win. He gave him a hard time, but it was just so he could get him at his beyond pissed point.
Xion doesn't look like anything. It depends on who views her. Roxas and a couple of people view her as a kind of dark haired Kairi. Xigbar views her as Ven. A few other members view her as a hooded figure with no face.
>uses his fat to jump on and stun enemies
Would giggle and keep in party forever.
>the entire time Xigbar was looking at two Roxas/Vens running around collecting hearts
I wonder if he ever thought he was tripping out.
I'm not him, but he's both right and wrong.
Xion is formed from Roxas' leaking memories, and since Kairi was the biggest thing in Sora's mind, Xion resembles a black-haired Kairi to most people.
