#1966942 What are the Foretellers Identities? (without Reincarnation)

Posted by Elfdemon_ on 22 November 2017 - 04:05 PM

I don't really understand how the Foretellers' identities could be characters that don't act like them, don't have the same personalities as them, don't have the same voices as them, and don't have the same body shapes as them. If Ava was Kairi's Grandma, then Kairi's Grandma would be over 110 years old. And if she was brought to the time period of BBS using the same method as Ventus (and all the Foretellers assuming what you're saying is correct), then why would she be so much older than everyone else when everyone else wouldn't have aged? They obviously didn't all just wait and age for the time period of BBS. They got there using some fantastical means, such as the realm of sleep or time travel or body swapping or something. And Aeleus is way too calm and silent to be Aced. Aced is overly emotional and passionate and slightly dumb. The only similarities between Aced and Aeleus is that they're strong. Their chin shapes are also different. Aced's is more narrow. And all the other ones you mentioned just have complete different personalities, and like you said, are big stretches. If these were the same characters, then they would've been given the same voice actors/actresses and they would've been given the same personalities. I don't see why their personalities would have changed since.

I think the Foretellers' faces are more likely to look like characters we know or something, rather than the Foretellers actually being characters we already know. I'm still even iffy about that though too. Either their faces are kept hidden because their identities are being kept hidden from the audience or their faces are kept hidden because their faces are irrelevant because since their voices, body language, and gestures tell all we need to know about their characters and that they'll be irrelevant in the future of the series since they all just end up dying in the Keyblade War. Who knows though. It's hard to tell which of those is the answer.

#1966589 A Third Kingdom Key

Posted by Elfdemon_ on 16 November 2017 - 02:57 PM

There is no "Keyblade of the Realm of Light" and there is no "Keyblade of the Realm of Darkness." There's just Keyblades of Light, Keyblades of Darkness, and a Keyblade of Heart. Keyblades of Light are Keyblades forged in the Realm of Light, Keyblades of Darkness are Keyblades forged in the Realm of Darkness when a world falls to darkness that a Keyblade of Light was forged at, and the Keyblade of Heart is the Keyblade created from the Princesses of Heart's hearts. As far as we know, Kingdom Key and Kingdom Key D are not special in any way. Kingdom Key is just a Keyblade from the Realm of Light (a Keyblade of Light) and Kingdom Key D is just a Keyblade from the Realm of Darkness (a Keyblade of Darkness).

 

All you need in order to seal the Door to Darkness is a Keyblade of Light and a Keyblade of Darkness. You didn't specifically need Kingdom Key and Kingdom Key D. Kingdom Key and Kingdom Key D worked because they are a Keyblade of Light and a Keyblade of Darkness. Any Keyblade of Light and Keyblade of Darkness would've worked.


Ok 2 things: First, ventus joining his heart with ventus in the first place was the reason why sora was able to use the keyblade at first, however sora’s own heart was the reason why he was able to take the keyblade back from riku. Second ventus having a keyblade already means absolutely nothing. Mickey also had his own keyblade but he can use the Kingdom Key D perfectly fine.

 
Ventus has nothing to do with Sora being able to wield a Keyblade. In order to get a Keyblade, you need to be Bequeathed (have the Keyblade inheritance ceremony performed on you). Being Bequeathed causes a Keyblade to choose you. The person Bequeathing someone needs to be a Keyblade Master or someone on the level of a Keyblade Master, and the person being Bequeathed needs to have a strong heart. All you need to wield a Keyblade is a strong heart. In order to obtain a Keyblade though, you need to be Bequeathed. Terra Bequeathed Riku in Birth by Sleep. So, as stated above, that caused a Keyblade to choose Riku. That Keyblade was Kingdom Key. In KH1, during the storm on Destiny Islands, Sora unknowingly touched Riku's heart. During that moment, Kingdom Key saw Sora's heart as stronger than Riku's since Riku was falling to darkness and chose Sora instead and jumped over to him. Sora is able to wield it because he has a strong heart. So, Sora receiving a Keyblade is a rare and unique case since he wasn't Bequeathed. He happened to be at the right place at the right time and happened to have a strong enough heart. Later, at Hollow Bastion, Riku took back Kingdom Key because it was still technically his/he showed that his heart was stronger than Sora's during that moment. But, after Sora gave his iconic speech, Kingdom Key chose Sora again since Sora proved his heart was stronger than Riku's, and this time, it was permanent.

 

Ventus' heart being within Sora is what allows Sora to dual-wield. The Keyblade that Sora dual-wields is Ventus' Keyblade, Wayward Wind. It just has a different Keychain on it. Ventus had nothing to do with Sora wielding a Keyblade in the first place though. Sora, and anyone who can wield a Keyblade, are simply able to wield a Keyblade because they have a strong heart. Sora's connection with Ventus has nothing to do with it. And the Keyblade Sora obtained was Riku's, not Ventus'.

The Organization XIII Mickey Funko Pop! Vinyl was first seen in October 2017 on the back of the box of the Halloween Town Sora Funko Pop! Vinyl's box. The design seems to have changed slightly since then, as the picture of the Organization XIII Mickey Funko Pop! Vinyl on the back of the box has its hood down and is holding its Keyblade up, while the actual Organization XIII Mickey Funko Pop! Vinyl figure has its hood up and is holding its Keyblade down.

UPDATE [Nov 18, 2017]: BoxLunch has now set up a product page for the Organization XIII Mickey Funko Pop! Vinyl figure. The page is not live yet as it is only a placeholder. The price is listed as $12.90 USD.

The item description is as follows:

Funko Pop! presents a stylized vinyl collectible figure of Organization 13 Mickey from Disney's hit video game franchise, Kingdom Hearts.

If you're lucky, you may receive a 1 in 6 glow-in-the-dark chase variant!

Please note: Chase variants shipped at random. No guarantee of receiving chase with purchase. All sales final; no returns or exchanges.

A BoxLunch Exclusive!

  • Pop! Disney 334
  • 3 3/4" tall

There is no release date available; however, Funko enthusiast Nick (@sw_up_wir20) has revealed that the product "will release next month or January". Nick has previously been our source for pictures of the Halloween Town Sora Funko Pop! Vinyl figure, and for revealing the release window of the Kingdom Hearts Funko Mystery Minis.

#1966082 Is Ansem SoD Not being Ansem a retcon or a plot twist?

Posted by Elfdemon_ on 08 November 2017 - 02:19 PM

It's both. It's a plot twist and a retcon. Nomura most likely didn't come up with Ansem the Wise until after KH1's development. A lot of the retcons in the series are to either create plot twists or to make sure that plot twists that were created make sense.

#1965438 (Theory) Do Pureblood Heartless evolve?

Posted by Elfdemon_ on 29 October 2017 - 11:49 PM

I thought in Days, it was stated that only one of them released hearts? (The DS version, I think I remember someone saying that in the first few missions)


No one says that as far as I'm aware. Maybe you're thinking of this:

Marluxia speaking to Roxas in 358/2 Days: "The rest of us can defeat Heartless, but we have no way of collecting the hearts they release. Eventually, the hearts will return right back into Heartless."
 

Fool. You're right. Pureblood Heartless are born in the realm of darkness and not from anyone's heart. Emblem Heartless are born when someone's heart is taken by a heartless. The heart that was taken becomes the Emblem Heartless. The body then sometimes becomes a Nobody. Emblem Heartless strength is based on the amount of darkness in a person's heart when they turned into a heartless. 
 
I wouldn't be surprised if Pureblood Heartless evolve. Those Heartless towers are considered its own category of Heartless, and those were just a bunch of Shadows put together.


Not true. Pureblood Heartless are the natural Heartless. They are what you turn into when you succumb to the darkness and they are what you can create from the darkness in your heart. They are the darkness from the heart turned sentient (except not really since they can't feel things and only act on instinct lol). When you destroy a Pureblood Heartless, the heart within them isn't visibly/physically released, but it is definitely freed. The freed heart will eventually end up turning back into a Heartless. When a Pureblood Heartless is destroyed by a Keyblade, then it's freed for good. It goes into a sort of limbo state and waits for the corresponding Nobody to be destroyed so that it can combine back with the body and recomplete the original person. If the person has no corresponding Nobody, then all you have to do to recomplete them is destroy their Heartless (with a Keyblade) since their body is already waiting in the limbo state.

Emblem Heartless were created by a machine constructed by Apprentice Xehanort. It uses real hearts and replicates how a heart succumbs to darkness. The process is obviously different though since it is done by science and a machine. When they are destroyed, the corrupted heart that's freed will end up turning back into a Heartless, just like the Pureblood Heartless. Except the hearts are visibly freed. When Emblem Heartless are destroyed by a Keyblade, the heart is freed for good and goes into the aforementioned limbo state and waits for the Nobody counterpart to be destroyed, just like the Pureblood Heartless. If there is no Nobody counterpart, then all you need to do to recomplete the original person is to destroy the Heartless with a Keyblade. Them being destroyed by a Keyblade also allows Organization XIII to be able to collect the hearts before they get a chance to recomplete.
 
Oh, and another way to become a Heartless is being devoured by one. If your heart is devoured by a Pureblood Heartless, then you will become a Pureblood Heartless and if your heart is devoured by an Emblem Heartless, then you will become an Emblem Heartless.

#1965225 [Spoilers] Theory: Riku Replica is a Seeker of Darkness? Why is that?

Posted by Elfdemon_ on 27 October 2017 - 01:14 PM

After the second Riku goes away, Riku says "That was my... my dark side. I gave in to the darkness once. And ever since, it's chased me around in one form or another. The Seeker of Darkness who stole my body... a puppet replica of the shadows in my heart... and now, I'm facing me."
 
He lists the forms of his darkness that have chased him around in one form or another. He lists Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and RIku Replica. Then he says that now, he's facing himself. The way this is worded implies that the second Riku we saw is not Riku Replica.
 
You get the Chain of Memories glossary specifically right when Riku says "a puppet replica of the shadows in my heart." So, that's not really proof of anything. In his sentence, he mentioned Riku Replica, who appeared in Chain of Memories, so you get the Chain of Memories glossary then.
 
Like you said, another option that the second Riku could be is a projection of the dreaming world. But, that doesn't make any sense because Riku was never wearing a black coat when he was at Monstro in KH1. And the Monstro we're inside of in DDD takes place before KH1.
 
And also like you said, another option could be that the second Riku we see is a time travelling Riku from when he was a villain in KH1. But, Nomura said that "Young Xehanort functioned as a “portal”, summoning Xemnas and Ansem each time they appeared. That’s why Young Xehanort was there whenever they appeared." Young Xehanort was no where to be seen with the second Riku. This contradiction would also apply to the theory of the second Riku being a Riku Replica from the past.

 

So yeah, there are contradictions to every theory about this essentially. Nomura's got some explaining to do.

#1964786 Ventus Age

Posted by Elfdemon_ on 20 October 2017 - 12:26 PM

We saw him sitting on the chair in the Chamber of Waking at the end of Dream Drop Distance. He hasn't aged at all. Ven is around 15 years old, and judging by how he looked at the end of DDD, he'll still be around 15 years old in KH3.

I think the most likely explanation for this is that you most likely need a heart to age. This would also explain why many of the Organization XIII members aged as Nobodies, since typically, Nobodies do not age. The explanation would be that they grew hearts, so they aged.
