A year ago, I attempted to make a list of all of the unanswered questions (some people might refer to them as plot holes, though that's slightly inaccurate) in the Kingdom Hearts series. I've been researching, replaying through the games, reading Tetsuya Nomura interviews, and so on, and greatly increasing my Kingdom Hearts knowledge. And I've been slowly updating this list. I've been removing things that have actually been answered and I've added things that haven't. And now, I believe that I have an accurate list that's very close to being a complete list of all the unanswered questions. Tetsuya Nomura said that all questions will be answered in Kingdom Hearts III. After discovering all of these unanswered questions, I doubt that'll be the case, but this list would be fun to use as a list to check off unanswered questions while playing through Kingdom Hearts III and reading interviews that follow the game's release. So, here it is:


 


(Oh, and also, if you think you found an answer to any of these questions, please provide your source in your comment. Thank you!)


 


Complete List of Unanswered Questions



  • Why are there globes and maps of Earth and real world locations in some worlds? Are some worlds just alternate reality-type Earths that exist simultaneously but separately? Or did all the worlds used to be Earth when they were all together in one massive World in the Age of Fairy Tales, and the globes and maps are just artifacts of history?




  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, how did Mickey know about Sora and Riku, and how did he know that they got a Keyblade? Yen Sid has the ability to sort of sense things and people in other realms and worlds, so did Yen Sid tell Mickey about them?




  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, why does Winnie the Pooh's letter to Rabbit have "Mickey Mouse" written on the front with a crown symbol? Also, if you come back later, it'll instead be a letter from Roo. This letter also has "Mickey Mouse" written on the front with a crown symbol. Why is that?




  • In the first Kingdom HeartsGenie says he's heard about a Keyhole before 200 years ago, and implies that he used to know its location. Why does he know about the Keyhole and how did he know its location?




  • Some residents of Halloween Town, such as Jack, The Mayor, Dr. Finkelstein, etc. all know about the Heartless because Jack found a book about the Heartless. Who wrote this book full of research notes?




  • Why didn't Maleficent getting stabbed with the Keyblade of Heart cause her to turn into a Heartless? Why did she turn into her Dragon form instead? The Keyblade of Heart has the ability to "unlock people's hearts," which sounds like the same thing that any Keyblade can do if you're on the level of a Keyblade Master, so it can be assumed that the unique ability of the Keyblade of Heart is that it allows you to do that without being on the level of a Keyblade Master. But, is it possible that "unlocking people's hearts" is actually different? Could "unlocking people's hearts" mean something different for each person who gets stabbed by it? Such as Sora turning into a Heartless, and Maleficent turning into her Dragon form? Or is it that Maleficent is just different than most people and follows different laws of nature?




  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, Xehanort's Heartless possessed Riku, which sort of kicked Riku's heart out of his body and sent it to the Realm of Darkness. Why didn't this create a Heartless and a Nobody? Was it because the heart wasn't either extracted by a Keyblade or succumb to the darkness? Does this mean it's possible somehow for a heart to leave a body without becoming a Heartless?




  • When a Heartless is destroyed by a Keyblade, whether it be an Emblem Heartless or a Pureblood Heartless, a heart is released from it and the original person is recompleted. (For the Pureblood Heartless, the heart isn't visibly released, but it's still released.) If someone has a Nobody too, you have to destroy that as well in order to get their original self to be recompleted. If a Heartless is destroyed by something other than a Keyblade, then the released heart will end up just eventually turning back into a Heartless. So, when Ansem, Seeker of Darkness was destroyed by the light from his artificial Kingdom Hearts (and Xemnas was destroyed later), why did Xehanort get recompleted? He shouldn't have gotten recompleted since his Heartless wasn't destroyed by a Keyblade, it was destroyed by the light from his artificial Kingdom Hearts. Does getting destroyed by Kingdom Hearts count as getting destroyed by a Keyblade for some reason, or have the same effect as getting destroyed by a Keyblade or something?




  • What was written on the letter that Pluto was holding at the end of the first Kingdom Hearts and in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories? It's obviously not the same one from the end of Kingdom Hearts II since Mickey wrote that at the end of Kingdom Hearts coded.




  • At the end of the first Kingdom Hearts, how did Donald and Goofy's clothes change when they got to the grassy area outside of Castle Oblivion? Also, how did their clothes change while they are in Castle Oblivion in Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories back to the clothes they had on before?




  • In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, when referring to Maleficent, Vexen says "Don't be absurd. The witch is gone. She cannot return from the Realm of Darkness of her own volition." This means that after Sora destroyed Maleficent in the first Kingdom Hearts, she got sent to the Realm of Darkness. Why is this? Why did Maleficent get sent to the Realm of Darkness instead of just simply dying? Or did she just simply escape after the battle with Sora to the Realm of Darkness using a Corridor of Darkness? Also, why did she have to wait for someone (the three fairies) to remember her in order to come back when she could've just used a Corridor of Darkness to get out? Why can she not escape of her own volition? When Ansem the Wise was banished to the Realm of Darkness by Apprentice Xehanort, he was able to use Corridors of Darkness to get out, so why couldn't Maleficent have done that?




  • Why did Marluxia and Larxene want to overthrow Organization XIII?




  • In Secret Ansem's Report 12, it says "First I shall convert all of Twilight Town into data and construct a "world duplicate" in Sora's memories. I shall place Roxas within that world to live out his days and regain those memories." If the simulated Twilight Town that Roxas was placed into is located inside of Sora's memories, then how was Sora able to go inside of the simulated Twilight Town by accessing the machine in the basement of the Old Mansion in Twilight Town near the end of Kingdom Hearts II? Is there multiple copies of the simulated Twilight Town, and just one of them is located inside Sora's memories? Or were Sora's memories just hooked up to the simulated Twilight Town before or something? Or is the machine in the basement of the Old Mansion just simply able to access Sora's memories and by going into the simulated Twilight Town, Sora was within his own memories?




  • Why did the guards in Land of Dragons turn into Emblem Heartless (Nightwalkers)? If they were succumbing to the darkness, then they should've turned into Pureblood Heartless. Were they just Nightwalkers disguised as guards or something?




  • How did the Ghosts of Scar form together to create an Emblem Heartless (Groundshaker)? Shouldn't they have created a Pureblood Heartless if anything? Did they just form together with a Living Bone and Shaman Heartless or something?




  • How did Stitch get to Hollow Bastion?




  • Why did Axel and Saïx want to find the Chamber of Waking?




  • Why did Axel and Saïx want to overthrow Organization XIII?




  • How did Saïx get his scar?




  • What are the names and identities of Larxene, Demyx, and Luxord's original human forms?




  • Why hasn't Xemnas wielded a Keyblade? (Assuming he has the ability to). If he doesn't have the ability to wield a Keyblade, then why?




  • How did Ansem the Wise's machine exploding turn Riku back to normal and how did it transport Ansem the Wise to the Realm of Darkness?




  • Why did Naminé return to Kairi, when she's made out of Sora's body and soul? Shouldn't she have returned to Sora instead? Did she have some of Kairi's memories that needed to return to her, the same way Roxas had some of Sora's memories that needed to return to him? If not, then why did Naminé even need to return to anybody?




  • Why does Apprentice Xehanort have brown eyes instead of yellow?




  • Why does Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness have orange eyes instead of yellow?




  • Why does Riku not have yellow eyes in the first Kingdom Hearts when Ansem, Seeker of Darkness is possessing him?




  • How did Sora and Riku get from the place where they fought the final fight against Xemnas in Kingdom Hearts II to the Dark Margin in the Realm of Darkness?




  • How did Kairi's message in a bottle end up at the Dark Margin?




  • "End of Sea" is the name of a world that's half in the Realm of Darkness and half in the Realm Between. Dark Margin is a location at the very tip of this world. It's on the Realm of Darkness half of the world. The ocean that we see there acts as a border between the Realm of Darkness and the Realm Between. How are there worlds in the Realm of Darkness still? They should've all returned to the Realm of Light after Sora sealed the Door to Darkness and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness' artificial Kingdom Hearts broke apart. Does this mean there are worlds native to the Realm of Darkness that have always never had a heart? Or is End of Sea just a world from the Realm Between that's so close to the edge of the Realm Between that it's also touching the Realm of Darkness? Also, how is there a world that's half in one realm and half in another realm in the first place when the realms aren't physically connected?




  • How did Mickey's message in a bottle get to Sora on Destiny Islands?




  • Tetsuya Nomura has stated that Ventus' heart stayed within Sora's body AKA his Nobody, Roxas when Sora was separated from his body and soul and became a Heartless. What is the reason for this? Why didn't it get released along with the other hearts?




  • How did Ventus become so tiny when he went to Castle of Dreams? Tetsuya Nomura said it was because he somehow messed up traveling to the world and ended up tiny, but how does that even happen? How does you not knowing how to properly travel to worlds make you end up very small? I assume that we just simply don't completely know how physics and stuff works in the Kingdom Hearts universe, but it'd be nice to get a specific answer to this question.




  • How is the ship in Deep Space able to access the Lanes Between without a Keyblade or Corridors of Darkness? Or does this mean that somebody aboard the ship has a Keyblade or the ability to use Corridors of Darkness?




  • Where did Vanitas obtain his Keyblade? He can wield a Keyblade because his heart is half of Ventus' heart, but where did he obtain his Keyblade, Void Gear? Did Xehanort Bequeath him? Or does he wield Wayward Wind, except with a Void Gear Keychain on it?




  • If the Unversed are created by Vanitas and come from Vanitas, then how was Lady Tremaine able to turn the coach into an Unversed and how was The Queen able to turn the Spirit of the Magic Mirror into an Unversed?




  • Why did Lea and Isa go into Ansem the Wise's castle in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and why did they get kicked out?




  • How did Ventus and Aqua end up in the Lanes Between after their battles at the Keyblade Graveyard?




  • How did Terra-Xehanort end up at Radiant Garden after the explosion from the χ-blade?




  • Did Terra-Xehanort/Apprentice Xehanort actually have amnesia or was he just faking it?




  • When Terra-Xehanort split himself up into a Heartless and a Nobody, why weren't two Nobodies created? When Sora became a Heartless, his own heart and Kairi's heart released from his body. This created Roxas and Naminé. When Terra-Xehanort became a Heartless, the same thing should've happened. Terra's heart and Xehanort's heart were released from Terra's body. This should've created a Terra Nobody and a Xehanort Nobody, but instead, Xemnas was created; someone who is a mixture of both Terra and Xehanort. Why?




  • How did Young Xehanort leave Destiny Islands and get to Land of Departure?




  • When we see Young Xehanort in the past on Destiny Islands and in the present-day during Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, he doesn't have pointy ears like he does when he's older. Why is this? And when we see Young Xehanort in Kingdom Hearts III, he does have pointy ears. Why is that?




  • Why does Xehanort's Keyblade Armor have the Nobody emblem on it?




  • How did Riku obtain his second Keyblade (Way to the Dawn) after Sora took his first one (Kingdom Key)? Getting Bequeathed causes a Keyblade to choose you, so when Sora took his Keyblade, did another Keyblade choose him? Is that what happens if you lose your Keyblade somehow? Another one will choose you?




  • The Master of Masters forged and tempered Keyblades by pulling them out of the depths of hearts. And ever since then, if you are Bequeathed, a Keyblade will choose you. If all Keyblades already exist somewhere out there and were created long ago, then how come some people's Keyblades resemble them or their character/personality? For example, Lea's Keyblade resembles one of his Eternal Flames Chakrams with fire coming out of it and Riku's Keyblade resembles his Soul Eater sword. Is this just simply because these people are destined to wield these Keyblades or something?




  • Where did Riku get the Keyblade he gave to Kairi (Destiny's Embrace)? And why did he even have to give her a Keyblade in the first place since one should've already chosen her since she was Bequeathed? Doesn't this mean she has two Keyblades now: the one that chose her from her being Bequeathed and the one Riku gave her, Destiny's Embrace?




  • Who Bequeathed Lea?




  • What's the name of Lea's Keyblade?




  • Why does the Kingdom Key look exactly like the two blades that are a part of the χ-blade?




  • It was stated that the pieces of light of the χ-blade were split into seven pieces to protect the number of pure hearts in the world. This is referring to the Seven Princesses of Heart. The Seven Princesses of Heart didn't exist way back in the Age of Fairy Tales though, so how did the χ-blade know that they were going to be born in the future? And in what way are the seven pieces of light protecting the Seven Princesses of Heart?




  • While Aqua was carrying Ventus' comatose body, his Keyblade raised and opened a door that led them to the Land of Departure. This door was not a method of travel that we've ever seen or heard about before. It wasn't one of the portals they've been opening with their Keyblades, it wasn't a Gate, and it wasn't a Corridor of Darkness. It looked pretty much exactly like the Door to Light from the end of Kingdom Hearts II. So, what was this door? Was it the Door to Light? And how was Ventus able to open it?




  • At the end of the first Kingdom Hearts, Sora, and Donald, and Goofy were standing on a piece of land at End of the World. End of the World was a world located in the Realm of Light that's made up of chunks of worlds that fell to darkness. When a world is falling to darkness/falling to the Realm of Darkness, some chunks of the world might stay behind in the Realm of Light. These chunks formed together to create End of the World. Once Sora and Mickey sealed the Door to Darkness, Ansem, Seeker of Darkness' artificial Kingdom Hearts broke apart and the hearts returned to the worlds, and they were restored. They left the Realm of Darkness and went back to the Realm of Light. The chunks that made up End of the World also went back to the Realm of Light. The chunk of land that Sora, Donald, and Goofy were on was a part of the Land of Departure/Castle Oblivion world. So, when the worlds were restored, they got sent to the recompleted Land of Departure/Castle Oblivion world since they were standing on that chunk of land. But, this means that the Land of Departure/Castle Oblivion world fell to darkness sometime in the past. So, what happened to Ventus' body when this happened? Was it also sent to the Realm of Darkness with the world, and was safe from the darkness/Heartless, because he was in the Chamber of Waking? And does this mean that his body was sent back to the Realm Between with the world when it was restored?




  • Why did Mickey not recognize the name "Xehanort" when he met Apprentice Xehanort? Is that just a common name in the Kingdom Hearts universe?




  • What exactly is a "mind?" And how is it different from the "soul?" Is it even different from the soul or are they the same thing?




  • Braig says he has his hands full with his own plans. What are these plans?




  • In the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded "Destiny" secret ending, we see the Organization XIII members who were residents of Radiant Garden lying on the floor after being recompleted as complete people again. We also see Braig, who is not lying on the floor like the rest of them. He presumably woke up before them. (We know this Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and before Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance because Ienzo is an adult in this cutscene. There is a cutscene at the beginning of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance that shows Even and Ienzo on the floor turning into Heartless/Nobodies and Ienzo is a little kid in that cutscene, so we know the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded "Destiny" secret ending takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded because we know Ienzo grew up as an adult while he was a Nobody.) In Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance, we see Xigbar. It is thought that this is actually Braig, not Xigbar and he's just going by the name "Xigbar" for some reason (most likely because of the Recusant's Sigil in that name). If this is the same recompleted Braig that we saw in the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded "Destiny" secret ending, then how come he has long hair again and how come he has gray in his hair again? It would not make sense for him to just all of a sudden change appearance and grow hair that quickly. Is this actually Xigbar and not Braig? If it's Xigbar, then that can either mean that he was brought to the present day from time travel, or that can mean that Young Xehanort turned the recompleted Braig back into a Nobody for some reason (maybe to be a more suitable vessel?). And is this the same case for Saïx? Was he turned back into a Nobody or was he brought back using time travel? Or it's possible that he's the recompleted Isa since his recompleted human form has no visible differences than his Nobody, unlike Braig and Xigbar. Speaking of which, do people keep their appearances that they had as Nobodies when they turn back into people, or are they reverted to how they looked before they were turned into Nobodies? This is very unclear. It seems that some parts of them did keep their appearance and some parts of them didn't for some reason. Ienzo, Lea, and Isa aged as Nobodies and kept their ages when they turned back into people. Lea lost the markings under his eyes when he became a person again though for some reason. From what we know, this is how it is: You are reverted back to how you looked before you became a Nobody, but you keep your age. For example, Lea was reverted to how he looked before he became a Nobody which is why he lost the markings under his eyes, but he still looks older because he kept his age.




  • Why did Lea and Isa get recompleted with their black coats on? Does that mean they were the only ones who were wearing black coats before they became Nobodies?




  • Ienzo seems to have known this whole time that the original person can get recompleted if their Heartless and Nobody is destroyed, so when he was Zexion, why did he act like he didn't know?




  • It has been confirmed that Axel, Roxas, Xion, and Naminé all grew hearts. As seen with Roxas, if your Nobody grows a heart and recombines with your other pieces to recreate the original person, the heart that the Nobody grew will be trapped inside of you. Since Axel grew a heart of his own and has been recompleted, does this mean that Lea now has two hearts: his original heart and the heart his Nobody grew? Or did the heart that his Nobody grew combine with his original heart? If so, then why didn't Roxas' heart combine with Sora's? Would it be because Roxas had a completely separate personality and memories than Sora, while Axel had the same personality and memories as Lea?




  • Tetsuya Nomura said that Nobodies don't age, but Axel, Saïx, and Zexion all clearly aged. Maybe you need a heart to age, and since Axel grew a heart, he didn't count as a regular Nobody so he aged? Does this mean Saïx and Zexion grew hearts as well? Do you need a heart to age?




  • Where is Terra's heart and body? Is Xehanort still possessing it, but just making it look like his old man form, like how Ansem, Seeker of Darkness in the first Kingdom Hearts was still possessing Riku's body, but making it look like himself?




  • What's the situation with Eraqus being inside of Terra's heart? After Terra-Xehanort split into a Heartless and Nobody, what happened with Eraqus' heart, and where is Eraqus' heart now?




  • Why can't Sleeping Worlds dream about Heartless? All the "realm of sleep" is, is dreams. It can be dreams of people or dreams of worlds that have fallen to darkness/fallen to the Realm of Darkness, since worlds that fall to darkness, also fall to sleep, and they dream. So, since people can dream about Heartless and have them appear in the realm of sleep, then why can't worlds do the same?




  • Heartless can be created in the realm of sleep by someone dreaming about a Heartless in their dream, but Heartless can't enter the realm of sleep from the outside world. If Heartless can't enter the realm of sleep, then how was Ansem, Seeker of Darkness able to enter the realm of sleep? Is it because he's not just a Heartless, he's a Heartless possessing a body (Riku's body form the first Kingdom Hearts)? Does him having a body allow him to enter the realm of sleep? Also, why can't Heartless enter the realm of sleep in the first place? Why can't they just use Corridors of Darkness to enter? Young Xehanort, and the other Seekers of Darkness, follow Sora and Riku into the realm of sleep. They use that as an entrance. But, I'm still pretty sure that Corridors of Darkness can get you into the realm of sleep since they were all using Corridors of Darkness while in the realm of sleep. That's also presumably how they got out of the realm of sleep when they were done putting Sora into that weird sleep coma. Presumably. So, yeah, why can't Heartless use Corridors of Darkness to enter the realm of sleep?




  • Who are all of the Seven Guardians of Light?




  • Who are all of the Thirteen Seekers of Darkness?




  • Why did the time traveling members of the Thirteen Seekers of Darkness have to go back to their own time? And how are they going to come back?




  • The Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states that Xehanort's heart being in thirteen vessels serves as raw material for the χ-blade. Why is this? Xehanort's heart isn't pure darkness, so how does him putting his heart into thirteen vessels work for creating the χ-blade?




  • What was the Riku that Riku saw in Monstro in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance? Was it the dream world projecting an image of Riku from the first Kingdom Hearts? Putting Riku "back in his place," like it did to Jiminy in Sora's side of Prankster's Paradise? If so, then why is he wearing a black coat? Riku wasn't wearing a black coat in the first Kingdom Hearts, and the worlds only dream about their pasts, so this wouldn't make sense. Is it a Seeker of Darkness? If that Riku is a Seeker of Darkness, is it Riku Replica? If it's Riku Replica, then why did Riku say "That was my... my dark side. I gave into the darkness once, and ever since, it's chased be 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 versions of his darkness that have chased him around in one form or another. He lists Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and Riku Replica, and then says that now, he's facing himself. That implies that it's not Riku Replica. So, it's not Riku Replica, right? Unless Riku's just assuming it's not Riku Replica. If it's just himself (Riku) that he was facing, then was it when he was a villain in the first Kingdom Hearts that's time traveled to present-day to be a Seeker of Darkness? If it's Riku Replica or himself from the first game time traveled to present-day to be a Seeker of Darkness, then how come Young Xehanort isn't there with him? Tetsuya Nomura has stated that Young Xehanort functioned as a "portal" that summoned the Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. Wouldn't it be the same for Riku Replica/Riku from the first game and any other time traveling Seekers of Darkness? If not, then why?




  • How are we going to save Ventus, Terra, Roxas, Xion, and Naminé?




  • What is the Key to Return Hearts?




  • In the Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance secret ending, Goofy says that Lea hurried back to Radiant Garden. Why did he hurry back to Radiant Garden?




  • It was shown that the "illusion" of Terra we see in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- was there because of Naminé's help. This took place right after Sora went into the pod to restore his memory, so why/how did Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- end with how the first Kingdom Hearts game ended? How does that make any sense timeline wise?




  • Why did the illusion of Ventus we see in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- have a black and white checkered design on the back of his jacket rather than the half black half white design the back of his jacket usually has?




  • If the dark counterpart of Keyblades of Light (Keyblades of Darkness) are found on the dark side of the world the Keyblade of Light was gained at, then does that mean Keyblades of Darkness are only created when a world that a Keyblade of Light was gained at falls to darkness? Or are Keyblade of Darkness counterparts to Keyblades of Light created in the Realm of Darkness right when a Keyblade of Light is gained, but just teleports to the world the Keyblade of Light was gained at when it falls to darkness?




  • How did Aqua and Mickey end up at the Realm of Darkness area that was behind the Door to Darkness? There was just a flash of light and then they got teleported there. What was that flash of light from and how did they get teleported there? Was it the flash of light that came out of the Door to Darkness when Sora said "Kingdom Hearts is light" in the first Kingdom Hearts?




  • How did Mickey get his shirt back in time for Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories after it got destroyed by the Demon Tide?




  • How long ago does Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] take place? We know that the Age of Fairy Tales takes place "more than a hundred years before Sora received the Keyblade," but "more than a hundred years" is a very vague number.




  • What is the name and identity of The Master of Masters?




  • What were the Foretellers' and Luxu's original names before The Master of Masters gave them new names and what do their faces look like?




  • What are the names of all of the Foretellers' Keyblades?




  • Who is Xehanort and Eraqus' master? Is it Luxu, or was there another generation in-between them and Luxu, or even more? Also, was this Yen Sid's master as well, or did he have a different master? If so, then who was Yen Sid's master?




  • What's in the black box that The Master of Masters gave to Luxu, and why isn't Luxu allowed to open it?




  • How was The Master of Masters able to see the future with the Gazing Eye when it wasn't even passed down yet? Wouldn't that just be him looking into the present since he has to wait until it's passed down?




  • Why did The Master of Masters disappear?




  • How do the Dandelions survive the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?




  • How does Luxu survive the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?




  • If The Master of Masters only put his one eye on one Keyblade, then how are there so many eyes on so many Keyblades in the future?




  • Who Bequeathed Ventus, the Player, Ephemer, Skuld, Brain, and all of the other Keyblade wielders from the Age of Fairy Tales?




  • How did Ventus and Lauriam get from the Age of Fairy Tales to the time period of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.




  • How was present-day Maleficent there in the Unchained realm during the Age of Fairy Tales during the Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] secret ending?




  • How did the light from children's hearts recreate the World? Do children's hearts just simply have the ability to create an entire universe? Or was Kairi's Grandma just being vague in her story? If so, then what really happened?

Wow... that's what I call an excellent school research. I'm little busy right now, but some of your questions are actually answered in the games. When I got some spare time, I'll gladly answer them. Also, it would be easier if you put numbers in front of the questions, it makes it easier to answer hahaha

How did Axel and Saïx know about the Chamber of Waking?

 

Xemnas must have told him. After all, through Saix, he gave Axel the task to search for it in Castle Oblivion.

When Terra went to Destiny Islands and looked at Riku, how was he able to sort of see into the past and the future and see the young version of Xehanort and the older version of Riku? Was Young Xehanort messing with him with his time powers or something?

 

I think Nomura himself stated that this was more of a wink to a player rather than trying to imply that Terra could look into the future. I don't have the source though.

 

When Terra-Xehanort split himself up into a Heartless and a Nobody, why weren't two Nobodies created? When Sora became a Heartless, his own heart and Kairi's heart released from his body. This created Roxas and Naminé. When Terra-Xehanort became a Heartless, the same thing should've happened. Terra's heart and Xehanort's heart were released from Terra's body. This should've created a Terra Nobody and a Xehanort Nobody, but instead, Xemnas was created; someone who is a mixture of both Terra and Xehanort. Why?

 

 

The same happens with Sora and Roxas though? I mean this isn't a definite answer, but I would suggest that in the same way Ven's heart was buried deep inside of Sora's body (so it could go on to Roxas), Terra's heart is probably buried deep inside of Xehanort's heart which could make it impossible to form a separate Nobody. But since they were inside of Terra's body at that time (and Xehanort's heart seemed to change at least some physical features of him), Xemnas was created, who in turn looks a little more like Terra again, at least compared to Apprentice Xehanort.

 

Tetsuya Nomura said that Nobodies don't age, but Axel, Saïx, and Zexion all clearly aged. Maybe you need a heart to age, and since Axel grew a heart, he didn't count as a regular Nobody so he aged? Does this mean Saïx and Zexion grew hearts as well?

 

Or Nomura just retconned it in BBS because he wanted to make the "Terra turns out to be Ansem/Xemnas" twist and needed aging Nobodies for it. Xemnas also ages (compared to Terranort or Apprentice Xehanort) and even Braig/Xigbar starts to grow some grey hair. Also, Axel likely only grew his heart when Roxas came around, so he must have aged even before that.

 

In the Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance secret ending, Goofy says that Lea hurried back to Radiant Garden. Why did he hurry back to Radiant Garden?

 

I mean he might have another reason, but it looks just like he hurried back for his training. Yen Sid probably told him to go so he could talk to Kairi by himself first.

How did Terra-Xehanort know about the Chamber of Waking?

 

An assumption, too, but Terra/Xehanort probably felt Ven in Castle Oblivion, in a similar way Roxas did. How he would be able to know the name is beyond me though, probably only so the audience isn't confused.

 

If The Master of Masters only put his one eye on one Keyblade, then how are there so many eyes on so many Keyblades in the future?

 

They don't necessarily have to be connected to the MoM :) Or actual eyes or anything.

 

I hope it was okay to answer this! I mostly only have assumptions based on the games, I am pretty positive about the first two answers and the Nobody answer, though.

First off, I want to say that I really appreciate and admire all the hard work you put into this Elfdemon; truly inspiring. So I want to try and help out, discuss and answer some of these questions.

 

· In the first Kingdom Hearts, we see a cutscene of young Kairi and Kairi's Grandma in the library of Ansem the Wise's castle in Radiant Garden. Why were they there? Do they know Ansem the Wise? are they related to Ansem the Wise? Does Ansem the Wise just let people into his castle sometimes? Or is the library a public library or something like that?

 

In Birth by Sleep, Aeleus tells Ventus that, “The castle is presently closed.” While this may not be fact, but rather possibly implied, maybe the castle is just open to the public sometimes?

 

·         What is the Door to Light, and how was Sora able to summon it?

 

But the Door to Darkness makes a pair with the “Door to Light.” This door is said to exist within the hearts of people, and if one’s heart envisions it, it will act as the ticket home for any resident of light that has been trapped in the realm of darkness.

·         When Terra went to Destiny Islands and looked at Riku, how was he able to sort of see into the past and the future and see the young version of Xehanort and the older version of Riku? Was Young Xehanort messing with him with his time powers or something?

 

  • What’s the meaning behind the several puzzling images in Terra’s chapter where we cross over into his mind?

Firstly, when he hears the name of the masked boy from Master Xehanort at the mysterious wasteland, and we see an image of Aqua and Ventus defeated, that’s a hint of the future. On Destiny Islands, when he makes Riku his successor, he has a special view of him and catches a glimpse of his future. However, this isn’t to say that Terra has the ability to see the future–it was a directive nuance intended to portray the future connection between Terra and Riku.

 

http://kh-info-block.tumblr.com/tagged/BBSNom2

 

·         Tetsuya Nomura stated that if you are Bequeathed and have suitable power, then a Keyblade will choose you. But, he's also stated that Keyblades are forged by reaching into the depths of a heart. So, does this mean that there are different ways to gain a Keyblade? Method #1 is forging a Keyblade by reaching into the depths of your heart or someone else's heart, and method #2 is being Bequeathed. There's also a third method that's mentioned in the games. Method #3 is being passed down a Keyblade from a Keyblade Master. All three methods require you to have a strong heart AKA "suitable power". But, doesn't this make being Bequeathed or passed down a Keyblade from a Keyblade Master kind of pointless? What's the point in Bequeathing someone or passing someone down a Keyblade if they can already just simply forge their own Keyblade since they have a strong heart, just like Lea did and just like Riku did after Sora took his Keyblade?

 

  • This time we saw the “Bequeathing”. Is that a required condition for becoming a Keyblade user?

That’s essentially correct. In terms of the Bequeathing itself, the successee just has to make the successor grasp their Keyblade–if this rite is performed by a Keyblade Master, and if they have suitable power, the Keyblade could choose that person as a Keyblade user, and appear before them. Terra, Ventus; all have passed this rite. Sora is the only exception.

 

So according to this, Riku did not obtain his Keyblade from forging his own. As of this point (BBS) Sora was the only one who obtained a Keyblade without the Bequeathing.

 

Now in Lea’s case. While we don’t know for sure how he was able to summon a Keyblade, in DDD, he wanted a Keyblade to be able to traverse worlds without the use of the Corridors of Darkness:

 

·         Why did Lea visit Disney Castle when he should have been looking for his friends?

To search for his friends he needed the power to move between worlds, and there is no way to do that other than to become a Keyblade wielder. While wanting to be made a Keyblade wielder, Lea saw a message from the past recorded by Ansem the Wise and, knowing it was dangerous, used the Corridors of Darkness once more to go talk with King Mickey and the others. That’s why after Maleficent left he was questioned at the Mysterious Tower.

 

http://kh-info-block.tumblr.com/tagged/DDDint2

 

So it’s possible that Yen Sid performed the Bequeathing on Lea. Again, we don’t know for sure, there’s nothing else supporting it, but there’s also nothing against. Yes, Yen Sid was surprised at the end, but my guess is that he was surprised Lea obtained his Keyblade so soon.

 

·         Like stated above, when a Keyblade Master or someone on the level of a Keyblade Master Bequeaths someone, and they have a strong heart, then a Keyblade will choose them. Or is "choose" just a metaphorical way to say "forged from their heart"? If it's not just a metaphorical way to say "forged from their heart", then what's the point in Bequeathing someone, like stated above? And where do these Keyblades that choose people come from? If it is just a metaphorical way to say "forged from their heart", then does this mean that Bequeathing is mandatory for someone to gain a Keyblade? If so, then who Bequeathed the very first Keyblade wielder (The Master of Masters)? 

 

- So the box’s contents will be revealed in [KHIII]... By the way, in this world that can be considered to be during “the time period spoken about in fairytales”, what sort of position is the X-blade in? 

Nomura: The Master knows about its existence. Using the X-blade as a model, he creates his own Keyblades. Well, by create I don’t mean that in the physical sense, such as forging and tempering them, I mean more along the lines of pulling one out from the depths of a heart. 

 

The Master of Masters created the Keyblades. As states in a previous quote, the Bequeathing is essentially needed to become a Keyblade wielder, with Sora being the only exception (as of BBS’s release). Since the Master of Masters is the only one who has created Keyblades, and his is stated to be the oldest one and thus the first, the Master of Masters didn’t go through the Bequeathing.

 

·         Did Eraqus and Yen Sid get Bequeathed or did they forge their own Keyblades? Or did they get passed down Keyblades from a Keyblade Master?

 

In the BBS Ultimania quote from earlier, it was stated that Sora was the only exception. So, Yen Sid and Eraqus have passed through the Bequeathing.

  • How did Sora, Donald, and Goofy end up at the grassy area outside of Castle Oblivion? Did they go there simply by Gummi Ship? Or were they sent there by being sucked into a Corridor of Darkness?

     

    At the end of KH, during Sora and Kairi goodbye, you can see a road behind Sora where the Door was. Maybe they just followed that road and Marluxia lead them there like shown in the beggining of CoM.

     

     

  • What was written on the letter that Pluto was holding in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories? It's obviously not the same one from the end of Kingdom Hearts II since Mickey wrote that at the end of Kingdom Hearts coded.

     

    One of the questions that I've always had and no one knows the answer and it seems we'll never know. :(

     

     

  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, how did Mickey know about Sora and Riku, and how did he know that they got a Keyblade? Yen Sid has the ability to sort of sense things and people in other realms and worlds, so did Yen Sid tell Mickey about them?

     

    I don't think Mickey knew about Sora and Riku. He actually just asked Donald and Goofy to find the Key and they decided to go to Traverse Town and begin their search there. Happy coincidence maybe?

     

     

  • How did Axel and Saïx know about the Chamber of Waking?

     

    Xemnas gave direct orders do Saïx and Axel to search for it in Castle Oblivion as seen in 358/2 days.

     

     

  • Why does Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness have orange eyes instead of yellow?

     

    Exposure to darkness turn the eyes to an orange color, like Ansem The Wise.

     

     

  • It was stated that the pieces of light of the χ-blade were split into seven pieces to protect the number of pure hearts in the world. This is referring to the Seven Princesses of Heart. The Seven Princesses of Heart didn't exist way back in the Age of Fairy Tales though, so how did the χ-blade know that they were going to be born in the future?

     

    Like you said, the χ-Blade is from the period of χ and Union χ. Since Master of the Masters and the Foretellers know the future it might be related to them. We just need to wait for Union χ ending and a lot of questions form the mitology might be answered.

     

     

  • Braig says he has his hands full with his own plans. What are these plans and what is he off doing?

     

    This isn't much of an answer but more like a guess. The way Braig/Xigbar acts and talks remind me a lot of Master of Masters, so maybe Braig turns out to be him and that's what he is refering to as his own plans...

     

     

  • In the Xehanort's Reports, it is stated that when the χ-blade is forged, then the real Kingdom Hearts will appear. So, we can assume that the Kingdom Hearts we see in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is the real Kingdom Hearts that came out of the darkness it was lost to way back in the Age of Fairy Tales, because that was around the time that the χ-blade was being forged. But, in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, Master Xehanort says "...the only real Kingdom Hearts was swallowed by the darkness, never to surface again." So, if the real Kingdom Hearts never surfaced again after it was swallowed by the darkness in the Age of Fairy Tales, then what Kingdom Hearts is the one we see in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep? It's obviously not Ansem, Seeker of Darkness' artificial Kingdom Hearts or Xemnas' artificial Kingdom Hearts, since those started being created sometime after Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. So, how did this Kingdom Hearts come to be and why was it there during the end of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep?

     

    Xehanort himself answers that question in DDD. He states that he was reckless and rushed his plans in BbS. The χ-Blade in BbS isn't the "real" one, since it has to be made from seven lights and thirteen darkness. That's why the KH shown wasn't a real KH, more like an incomplete version of it.

     

     

  • Why did the time traveling members of the Thirteen Seekers of Darkness go back to their own time? And how are they going to come back?///The Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states: "Due to discarding his body and becoming the Robed Figure, all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to travel through time. However, the only ones actually able to do so were the Robed Figure and the one he had given his power to, Young Xehanort." If all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to travel through time, then why were the Robed Figure and Young Xehanort the only ones able to do so? That's obviously not the case though since we see Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness from the past in present-day Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Did they not time travel? Is Young Xehanort gathering them from across time different from them time travelling? If so, then how so? Tetsuya Nomura states that Young Xehanort "borrows" the power to time travel in one interview, states that Young Xehanort "gained the ability" from the Robed Figure by making contact with him in one interview, and the Kingdom Hearts Ultimaniastates he "gave" Young Xehanort some of his own power. Which one is the truth? Did Young Xehanort borrow the power from the Robed Figure, did the Robed Figure give Young Xehanort some of his power, or did Young Xehanort gain the power by making contact with the Robed Figure? Oh, and why did the Robed Figure even need to give Young Xehanort some of his power to travel through time in the first place if all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to do so anyway? Tetsuya Nomura states 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." What does Tetsuya Nomura mean by "summon"? I assume he's referring to the fact that a version of you has to exist at your destination in time in order for you to time travel there and that Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness would use Young Xehanort as that version of themselves they need to travel to the future. But, like stated above, the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania says that only the Robed Figure and Young Xehanort can travel through time for some reason. And this brings us back to one of the questions I asked above: Is Young Xehanort gathering/summoning them from across time different from them travelling? And if so, then how so?

     

    To be able to time travel you must be only a heart; travel to a time where there is a version of yourself; when you reach the time you wanted to go you can only go foward on the timeline; and you cannot change things that are supposed to happen. The Robed Figure (Ansem SoD) was only a heart at the time and was able to time travel to Young Xehanort period and giving him the same power. With that YX was able to time travel and gather several versions of himself and bringing them all to the end of DDD. When they vanished, everything that has happened will be asleep in their memories and this will aid them on making their decisions through life, leading them to the final showdown in KH3.

     

     

  • In the Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance secret ending, Goofy says that Lea hurried back to Radiant Garden. Why did he hurry back to Radiant Garden?

     

    To begin his traning with Merlin.

     

     

  • It was shown that the "illusion" of Terra we see in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-was there because of Naminé's help. This took place right after Sora went into the pod to restore his memory, so why/how did Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- end with how the first *Kingdom Hearts game ended? How does that make any sense timeline wise?

     

    First: the talk between Terra and Naminé is set before the events of 0.2, as stated by Nomura (https://www.khinsider.com/news/SPOILERS-A-special-conversation-before-KINGDOM-HEARTS-0-2-Birth-By-Sleep-revealed-during-First-Breath-concert-6805)

    Second: You must remember that time in the the Realm of Darkness is totally different form the Realm of Light. So the meeting between Terra and Aqua happened between the time Sora became a heartless and the end of KH.

     

     

  • How did Terra-Xehanort know about the Chamber of Waking?

     

    Xehanort was trained in the Land of Departure and as a Master, he knows the secrets of the land just like master Eraqus stated to Aqua in BbS. So he knows that castle Oblivion is Land of Departure and about the Chamber of Waking.

     

     

  • How long ago does Kingdom Hearts χ take place? We know the Age of Fairy Tales takes place "more than a hundred years before Sora received the Keyblade", but "more than a hundred years" is a very vague number.

     

    KH χ tells the story of the Keyblade War or the Age of Fairy Tales like you said. But I don't think it makes any difference about when it happened...

     

     

  • How do the Dandelions survive the Keyblade War and the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?

     

    The pc version answers that (Union χ is actually a direct sequence to the pc version) and the american version is about to show us a little bit.

     

     

  • How was present-day Maleficent there during the Age of Fairy Tales during the Kingdom Hearts χ secret ending?

     

    She is searching for a copy of the Book of Prophecies as said on Re: Coded. How she got it and if she has one is yet to be shown.

Not exactly an answer, but officially from Nomura for the question:

  • Why hasn't Xemnas wielded a Keyblade? (Assuming he has the ability to). If he doesn't have the ability to wield a Keyblade, then why?

 

-- Roxas, the "Sora + Ventus" Nobody, was able to use a Keyblade. In contrast Xemnas, the "Terra + Master Xehanort" Nobody, wasn't able to use a Keyblade. Why is this?

Nomura: I'd rather that point remain a mystery. It's possible that he intentionally wasn't using one.

Woah. How did I not know about this part of the Ultimania!? That's crazy. This has so much enlightening info. Well, that's one question I'll edit off the list so far.

 

·         When Terra went to Destiny Islands and looked at Riku, how was he able to sort of see into the past and the future and see the young version of Xehanort and the older version of Riku? Was Young Xehanort messing with him with his time powers or something?

So it’s possible that Yen Sid performed the Bequeathing on Lea. Again, we don’t know for sure, there’s nothing else supporting it, but there’s also nothing against. Yes, Yen Sid was surprised at the end, but my guess is that he was surprised Lea obtained his Keyblade so soon.

 

·         Like stated above, when a Keyblade Master or someone on the level of a Keyblade Master Bequeaths someone, and they have a strong heart, then a Keyblade will choose them.

- So the box’s contents will be revealed in [KHIII]... By the way, in this world that can be considered to be during “the time period spoken about in fairytales”, what sort of position is the X-blade in? 

 

Nomura: The Master knows about its existence. Using the X-blade as a model, he creates his own Keyblades. Well, by create I don’t mean that in the physical sense, such as forging and tempering them, I mean more along the lines of pulling one out from the depths of a heart. 

 

The Master of Masters created the Keyblades. As states in a previous quote, the Bequeathing is essentially needed to become a Keyblade wielder, with the Sora being the only exception (as of BBS’s release). Since the Master of Masters is the only one who has created Keyblades, and his is stated to be the oldest one and thus the first, the Master of Masters didn’t go through the Bequeathing.

In the BBS Ultimania quote from earlier, it was stated that Sora was the only exception. So, Yen Sid and Eraqus have passed through the Bequeathing.

 

So many questions answered thanks to you, thanks a ton.

 

So, in order to become a Keyblade wielder, you need to have a strong heart and you need to be Bequeathed. Being Bequeathed causes a Keyblade, that exists out there somewhere, that The Master of Masters created, to choose you. All you need in order to wield a Keyblade is a strong heart and all you need in order to obtain a Keyblade is to be Bequeathed.

 

Sora touched Riku's heart and Kingdom Key chose Sora over Riku because Sora had a stronger heart and Riku was falling to darkness. If Sora didn't have a heart strong enough to wield a Keyblade, then the Keyblade wouldn't have passed on to Sora, and Riku would've kept it. Sora is the only known case of a Keyblade wielder who wasn't Bequeathed. He is a lucky kid who was in the right place and the right time.

This answered many questions, but it did bring up a few other questions that I'll add to the post:

 

How did Riku obtain his second Keyblade (Way to the Dawn) after Sora took his first one (Kingdom Key)? Getting Bequeathed causes a Keyblade to choose you, so when Sora took his Keyblade, did another Keyblade choose him? Is that what happens if you lose your Keyblade somehow? Another one will choose you?

 

The Master of Masters forged and tempered Keyblades by pulling them out of the depths of hearts. And ever since then, if you are Bequeathed, a Keyblade will choose you. If all Keyblades already exist somewhere out there and were created long ago, then how come some people's Keyblades resemble them or their character/personality? For example, Lea's Keyblade resembles one of his Eternal Flames Chakrams with fire coming out of it and Riku's Keyblade resembles his Soul Eater sword?

 

Where did Riku get the Keyblade he gave to Kairi (Destiny's Embrace)? And why did he even have to give her a Keyblade since one should've already chosen her since she was Bequeathed?

 

And of course, like you said, who Bequeathed Lea? And who Bequeathed Ventus, Ephemer, Skuld, Blaine, the Player, and all the other Keyblade wielding residents of the Age of Fairy Tales?

Thanks again btw. This definitely cleared a ton of things up.

 

I don't think Mickey knew about Sora and Riku. He actually just asked Donald and Goofy to find the Key and they decided to go to Traverse Town and begin their search there. Happy coincidence maybe?

He did. He talks about Sora and Riku in 0.2 and talks about how Sora's the one who's going to seal the door and Riku's the one who's going to help close the door. Also, Mickey was the one who was speaking to Sora in his dream at the beginning of KH1.

 

Xemnas gave direct orders do Saïx and Axel to search for it in Castle Oblivion as seen in 358/2 days.

You're right. I'll edit out that question. Thanks.

 

Exposure to darkness turn the eyes to an orange color, like Ansem The Wise.

Ansem the Wise's eyes have always been orange.

 

Xehanort himself answers that question in DDD. He states that he was reckless and rushed his plans in BbS. The χ-Blade in BbS isn't the "real" one, since it has to be made from seven lights and thirteen darkness. That's why the KH shown wasn't a real KH, more like an incomplete version of it.

Fair enough.

 

To be able to time travel you must be only a heart; travel to a time where there is a version of yourself; when you reach the time you wanted to go you can only go foward on the timeline; and you cannot change things that are supposed to happen. The Robed Figure (Ansem SoD) was only a heart at the time and was able to time travel to Young Xehanort period and giving him the same power. With that YX was able to time travel and gather several versions of himself and bringing them all to the end of DDD. When they vanished, everything that has happened will be asleep in their memories and this will aid them on making their decisions through life, leading them to the final showdown in KH3.

This doesn't answer any of my questions.

 

The pc version answers that (Union χ is actually a direct sequence to the pc version) and the american version is about to show us a little bit.

I'm completely up to date on KHX and KHUX. The answer to this question has not been provided yet.

For somebody who's called KingdomHearts3, I thought you'd be enthusiastic to give these questions a shot.

Well, I will try.

 

Okay for the question as to how Sora and Riku got out, I believe this was answered. I think it was Sora's heart led him to Kairi and therefore opened the Door to Light. That's the only question I can answer with enough detail.

Wow, these are seriously a buttload of questions! I'm impressed that you were able to come up with so many, Elfdemon! Truly impressive! I bet this must've taken you quite a while to compile! And well, like you said, Kingdom Hearts III probably won't answer absolutely all the questions in mind, but I'm sure most of them will be answered in one form or another! One has to keep a sharp eye and a sharper ear to details as we play the game whenever we finally get the chance to have it! :3

Saw a topic posted by Elfdemon_ about the unanswered questions currently present in the Kingdom Hearts series as a whole and I want to give my own two cents on the topic to add more to the conversation and maybe clear up at least some confusion along the way. I try to answer all of them as best as I can since some of them are rather ambiguous and vague at best. If there is any other source I forgot to mention don't be afraid to message me on this. Also if I forgot a question listed on the original topic you can message me if you want. 

 

Remember to take some of these answers with a grain of salt since because of the KH series storytelling being similar to One Piece and Metal Gear Solid where it leaves clues and hints towards further developments in the story some things are open to interpretation especially since all three of these series tend to be infamous with ambiguity and vagueness. 

 

My answers/responses to the questions are next to the second bullet points. 

 

Complete List of Unanswered Questions Response

  • Why are there globes and maps of Earth and real world locations in some worlds? Are some worlds just alternate reality-type Earths that exist simultaneously but separately? Or did all the worlds used to be Earth when they were all together in one massive World in the Age of Fairy Tales, and the globes and maps are just artifacts of history?

    • I think it is safe to remember the majority of the worlds in Kingdom Hearts originated from other film and video game franchises such as Cinderella and TWEWY. So of course they take place in some real-life location since the creators of the original did not have a crossover franchise like Kingdom Hearts in mind obviously while making them.

  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, why does Winnie the Pooh's letter to Rabbit have "Mickey Mouse" written on the front with a crown symbol? Also, if you come back later, it'll instead be a letter from Roo. This letter also has "Mickey Mouse" written on the front with a crown symbol. Why is that?

    • I am just going to use Occam’s Razor here and say it could just a graphic quirk not meant to be in the game or just a little easter egg. Not much here is worth reading too much into.

  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, Genie says he's heard about a Keyhole before 200 years ago and implies he used to know its location. Why does he know about the Keyhole and how did he know its location?

    • This part kind of reminds of the time King Triton mentions how the “key-bearer shatters peace and brings ruin”. Considering the events of Kingdom Hearts X and the whole Keyblade War incident, I think it is safe to assume some people had at least some scraps of mythos from the Age of Fairy Tales and just passed them on. Kind of like how many urban legends happen. Also I believe Genie’s memory is a little fuzzy about the keyhole thing. He found it because Jafar made a wish to find it.

  • Some residents of Halloween Town, such as Jack, The Mayor, Dr. Finkelstein, etc. all know about the Heartless because Jack found a book about the Heartless. Who wrote this book full of research notes?

    • Again it may have something to do with the events of Kingdom Hearts X, the Keyblade War, and legends being passed on, but some details may have been misinterpreted.

  • How did Sora, Donald, and Goofy end up at the grassy area outside of Castle Oblivion? Did they go there simply by Gummi Ship? Or were they sent there by being sucked into a Corridor of Darkness?

    • My guess when some of the worlds are restored they just happened to be on the same land which is part of the grass area/crossroads world. Kind of  stretch honestly but it is the best guess I can think of for this.

    • Quote Qrow: "At the end of KH, during Sora and Kairi goodbye, you can see a road behind Sora where the Door was. Maybe they just followed that road and Marluxia lead them there like shown in the beginning of CoM."

  • What was written on the letter that Pluto was holding in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories? It's obviously not the same one from the end of Kingdom Hearts II since Mickey wrote that at the end of Kingdom Hearts coded.

    • Probably not important at this point. It could be just retconned out of the way.

  • In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, how and why did Donald and Goofy's clothes change?

    • Again, using Occam’s Razor, don’t read too much into this. They could have just changed clothes for a change of pace.

  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, we see a cutscene of young Kairi and Kairi's Grandma in the library of Ansem the Wise's castle in Radiant Garden. Why were they there? Do they know Ansem the Wise? are they related to Ansem the Wise? Does Ansem the Wise just let people into his castle sometimes? Or is the library a public library or something like that?

    • To quote Master Eraqus of the News Team: “In Birth by Sleep, Aeleus tells Ventus that, “The castle is presently closed.” While this may not be fact, but rather possibly implied, maybe the castle is just open to the public sometimes?”
       

  • Why did the guards in Land of Dragons turn into Emblem Heartless (Nightwalkers)? If they were succumbing to the darkness, then they should've turned into Pureblood Heartless. Were they just Nightwalkers disguised as guards or something?

  • How did the Ghosts of Scar form together to create an Emblem Heartless (Groundshaker)? Shouldn't they have created a Pureblood Heartless if anything? Did they just form together with a Living Bone and Shaman Heartless or something?

  • How did Stitch get to Hollow Bastion?

    • It is implied in the credits of Birth by Sleep that he used the red ship to travel there

    • I know this is from the wiki, but the image of the D-link when activated shows Stitch's name anyway despite not meeting up with Lilo in the Kingdom Hearts series so far. I think the developers just called him Stitch most of the time just so people will recognize him more. Usually whenever somebody mentions the little koala-like alien people will call him Stitch and not his original name. It is not a perfect analogy but its kind of like how people keep calling Saitama "One-Punch Man" despite not being his actual superhero name in the series. Not much to read here honestly. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Game:Experiment_626_(D-Link)

  • How did Saïx get his scar?

    • Considering Braig got his scar on his right eye from a battle, I think it is safe to assume he just got the scar while fighting. Again it is one of those things you should not read too much into.

  • How did Axel and Saïx know about the Chamber of Waking?

    • To quote Alja: Xemnas must have told him. After all, through Saix, he gave Axel the task to search for it in Castle Oblivion.”

  • What is the name and identities of Luxord, Larxene, Demyx, and Marluxia's original human forms?

    • We may have to wait for Kingdom Hearts iii on this.

  • Why hasn't Xemnas wielded a Keyblade? (Assuming he has the ability to). If he doesn't have the ability to wield a Keyblade, then why?

    • Simple, he chose not to. Think about it, if he did try and use it will go against his plan to suppress the emotions of the heart and use the rest of the Org. 13 members for vessels and they will start to have doubts (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Xemnas#cite_note-4 )

  • How did Ansem the Wise's machine exploding turn Riku back to normal and how did it transport Ansem the Wise to the Realm of Darkness?

  • Why does Apprentice Xehanort have brown eyes instead of yellow?

    • Occam’s Razor here. Could be an artistic license thing. It still does not change the fact Terra-Xehanort is corrupted by darkness

  • Why does Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness have orange eyes instead of yellow?

    • Same as before. Artistic license. Orange is a stronger color compared to yellow. Also Ansem the Wise’s eyes turned orange and his ears became pointy after using darkness numerous times.

  • How did Sora and Riku get from the place where they fought the final fight against Xemnas in Kingdom Hearts II to the Dark Margin in the Realm of Darkness?

    • This is kind of a stretch but it is implied the realm of darkness and the realm of nothingness are the same place. It is world where it is pitch-black and void of any normal life. The Realm of Darkness is known for having bizarre laws which normal people cannot comprehend. Sora and Riku may have just walked to the Dark Margin. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Ansem%27s_Reports#Secret_Ansem.27s_Report_5  )

  • How did Kairi's message in a bottle end up at the Dark Margin?

    • I believe it represents how just all worlds share the same sky, all the worlds share the same sea. There is a theory/analysis video talking about this. 

  • What is the Door to Light, and how was Sora able to summon it?

    • Quoth Master Eraqus of News:But the Door to Darkness makes a pair with the “Door to Light.” This door is said to exist within the hearts of people, and if one’s heart envisions it, it will act as the ticket home for any resident of light that has been trapped in the realm of darkness.”

  • "End of Sea" is the name of a world that's half in the Realm of Darkness and half in the Realm Between. Dark Margin is a location at the very tip of this world. The ocean that we see there acts as a border between the Realm of Darkness and the Realm Between. How are there worlds in the Realm of Darkness still? They should've all returned to the Realm of Light after Sora sealed the Door to Darkness and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness' artificial Kingdom Hearts broke apart. Does this mean there are worlds native to the Realm of Darkness that have always never had a heart?

  • Tetsuya Nomura has stated that Ventus' heart stayed within Sora's body AKA his Nobody, Roxas when Sora was separated from his body and soul and became a Heartless. What is the reason for this? Why didn't it get released along with the other hearts?

    • Ventus’s heart still needed to be healed. If it were to be released than it will be detrimental to Ventus

    • Expansion: Ventus's heart was damaged the first time because Xehanort created Vanitas in order to have two beings of pure darkness and light to clash for the x-blade. Ventus barely managed to recover due to being into contact with a newborn Sora's heart, halting the deterioration. After meeting with Eraqus, falling to unconsciousness, and waking up again Ventus's heart managed to heal and formed bonds with Terra and Aqua. During the events of BBS after Ven beats Vanitas and prevents the completion of the x-blade, his heart became fractured again and needed to be kept safe until Ven's heart  will heal for a second time. In order to be healed Ven's fractured heart found its way to a young Sora to heal once more. What I am getting at here is because Ven had to fractured his own heart in consequence of fighting Vanitas immensely it probably took a lot longer to heal compared to what Xehanort did. Xehanort just wanted to create the x-blade, not smashing Ven's heart entirely. Ven's heart must have chosed to stay with Roxa's being/Sora's body in order to heal fully. 

  • How did Ventus become so tiny when he went to Castle of Dreams? Tetsuya Nomura said it was because he somehow messed up traveling to the world and ended up tiny, but how does that even happen? How does you not knowing how to properly travel to worlds make you end up very small? I assume that we just simply don't completely know how physics and stuff works in the KH universe, but it'd be nice to get a specific answer to this question.

    • Just going to throw in Occam’s Razor here and say it is just a gameplay mechanic to add in variety for the Cinderella World. I mean nowadays people are not questioning about why Donald and Goofy are completely different from other humans like Shang and Jack Sparrow.

  • When Terra went to Destiny Islands and looked at Riku, how was he able to sort of see into the past and the future and see the young version of Xehanort and the older version of Riku? Was Young Xehanort messing with him with his time powers or something?

    • To quote Master Eraqus of News again: “Firstly, when he hears the name of the masked boy from Master Xehanort at the mysterious wasteland, and we see an image of Aqua and Ventus defeated, that’s a hint of the future. On Destiny Islands, when he makes Riku his successor, he has a special view of him and catches a glimpse of his future. However, this isn’t to say that Terra has the ability to see the future–it was a directive nuance intended to portray the future connection between Terra and Riku.”

  • If the Unversed are created by Vanitas and come from Vanitas, then how was Lady Tremaine able to turn the coach into an Unversed and how was The Queen able to turn the Spirit of the Magic Mirror into an Unversed?

    • I admit I got nothing on this so far.

  • Why did Lea and Isa go into Ansem the Wise's castle in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and why did they get kicked out?

    • Typical teenage behavior. What else? Trespassing into other’s property uninvited. Don’t read too much into this.

  • How did Terra-Xehanort end up at Radiant Garden after the explosion from the χ-blade?

    • Same idea as the heart encoding machine; anything can happen.

  • How did Aqua and Ventus end up in the Ocean Between after the explosion from the χ-blade?

    • Same as before. Anything can happen.

  • When Terra-Xehanort split himself up into a Heartless and a Nobody, why weren't two Nobodies created? When Sora became a Heartless, his own heart and Kairi's heart released from his body. This created Roxas and Naminé. When Terra-Xehanort became a Heartless, the same thing should've happened. Terra's heart and Xehanort's heart were released from Terra's body. This should've created a Terra Nobody and a Xehanort Nobody, but instead, Xemnas was created; someone who is a mixture of both Terra and Xehanort. Why?

    • Quote Alja:  “The same happens with Sora and Roxas though? I mean this isn't a definite answer, but I would suggest that in the same way Ven's heart was buried deep inside of Sora's body (so it could go on to Roxas), Terra's heart is probably buried deep inside of Xehanort's heart which could make it impossible to form a separate Nobody. But since they were inside of Terra's body at that time (and Xehanort's heart seemed to change at least some physical features of him), Xemnas was created, who in turn looks a little more like Terra again, at least compared to Apprentice Xehanort.”

  • How did Young Xehanort leave Destiny Islands and get to Land of Departure?

    • Wait for Kingdom Hearts iii

  • Why doesn't Young Xehanort have pointy ears like he does when he's older?

  • Why does Xehanort's Keyblade Armor have the Nobody emblem on it?

    • From a release date perspective, since Kingdom Hearts ii is released before BBS, it makes sense to just see it as just a nod for the audience. Kind of like this example sourced here

    • You could say the same thing like his keyblade armor has Sora's signature crown symbol on this helmet and shoulder pads. 

  • Tetsuya Nomura stated that if you are Bequeathed and have suitable power, then a Keyblade will choose you. But, he's also stated that Keyblades are forged by reaching into the depths of a heart. So, does this mean that there are different ways to gain a Keyblade? Method #1 is forging a Keyblade by reaching into the depths of your heart or someone else's heart, and method #2 is being Bequeathed. There's also a third method that's mentioned in the games. Method #3 is being passed down a Keyblade from a Keyblade Master. All three methods require you to have a strong heart AKA "suitable power". But, doesn't this make being Bequeathed or passed down a Keyblade from a Keyblade Master kind of pointless? What's the point in Bequeathing someone or passing someone down a Keyblade if they can already just simply forge their own Keyblade since they have a strong heart, just like Lea did and just like Riku did after Sora took his Keyblade?

    • Quoth Master Eraqus of News team: “That’s essentially correct. In terms of the Bequeathing itself, the successee just has to make the successor grasp their Keyblade–if this rite is performed by a Keyblade Master, and if they have suitable power, the Keyblade could choose that person as a Keyblade user, and appear before them. Terra, Ventus; all have passed this rite. Sora is the only exception. So according to this, Riku did not obtain his Keyblade from forging his own. As of this point (BBS) Sora was the only one who obtained a Keyblade without the Bequeathing.Now in Lea’s case. While we don’t know for sure how he was able to summon a Keyblade, in DDD, he wanted a Keyblade to be able to traverse worlds without the use of the Corridors of Darkness.”

  • In Kingdom Hearts II, before Riku handed Kairi Destiny's Embrace, there was a very distinct bright light and sound that was very similar to when Sora touched Riku's heart on Destiny Islands in the first Kingdom Hearts. If I'm correct about the whole Sora forging Riku's Keyblade thing, does that mean Riku reached into the depths of Kairi's heart and forged her Keyblade (Destiny's Embrace) for her, and then handed it to her? If so, then why did Riku have to do this? A Keyblade should've already chosen her since she was Bequeathed, so she should already have a Keyblade. Does this mean she has two Keyblades? The one that chose her after she was Bequeathed and the one Riku forged for her? Or did Riku forging a Keyblade for her cancel out her previous Keyblade for some reason?

    • I honestly don’t know here. We really don’t know where the whole Destiny’s Embrace thing came from so far anyway.

  • Like stated above, when a Keyblade Master or someone on the level of a Keyblade Master Bequeaths someone, and they have a strong heart, then a Keyblade will choose them. Or is "choose" just a metaphorical way to say "forged from their heart"? If it's not just a metaphorical way to say "forged from their heart", then what's the point in Bequeathing someone, like stated above? And where do these Keyblades that choose people come from? If it is just a metaphorical way to say "forged from their heart", then does this mean that Bequeathing is mandatory for someone to gain a Keyblade? If so, then who Bequeathed the very first Keyblade wielder (The Master of Masters)?

  • Tetsuya Nomura stated that Aqua, Terra, and Ventus were all Bequeathed. Who Bequeathed each of them? Did Eraqus Bequeath Aqua and Terra? Who from the Age of Fairy Tales Bequeathed Ventus?

    • I don’t think Ventus was bequeathed a keyblade of his own during the Age of Fairy Tales. We don’t really know how the player characters get their keyblades once they join a union. But then again we don’t know the full circumstances of how Terra and Aqua come to apprenticeship with Eraqus. It is ambiguous at best.

  • Did Eraqus and Yen Sid get Bequeathed or did they forge their own Keyblades? Or did they get passed down Keyblades from a Keyblade Master?

    • I believe since Eraqus passed his Mark of Mastery exam and chose to teach and safeguard at the Land of Departure. I think it is most likely Eraqus’s keyblade was passed down from his and Xehanort’s master. If you look at the past Kingdom Hearts iii trailers, the No-Name keyblade is just hanging on the wall like a trophy. Why would a keyblade master leave it on a wall like a picture frame? (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Eraqus#Story )

  • Why does the Kingdom Key look exactly like the two blades that are a part of the χ-blade?

  • It was stated that the pieces of light of the χ-blade were split into seven pieces to protect the number of pure hearts in the world. This is referring to the Seven Princesses of Heart. The Seven Princesses of Heart didn't exist way back in the Age of Fairy Tales though, so how did the χ-blade know that they were going to be born in the future?

    • The sevens pieces of light don’t protect the the seven princesses, the seven princesses are the seven pieces of light. What do you mean by “protecting the number of pure hearts”? The wording is a little fuzzy for me. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Princesses_of_Heart)

    • Maybe it's aware of the book of prophecies and just found worthy hosts to house the seven pure lights? Or maybe x-blade didn't know after all and just found people worthy of keeping the pure light. Kind of like how Sora's keyblade just chose Sora in KH1 because he is the closest one to wield it and is not corrupted by darkness. 

  • While Aqua was carrying Ventus' comatose body, his Keyblade raised and opened a door that led them to the Land of Departure. This door was not a method of travel that we've ever seen or heard about before. It wasn't one of the portals they've been opening with their Keyblades, it wasn't a Gate, and it wasn't a Corridor of Darkness. It looked pretty much exactly like the Door to Light from the end of Kingdom Hearts II. So, what was this door? Was it the Door to Light?

    • It looks like a gate opening or special lane to me. I think both gates and lanes between are used interchangeably in Kingdom Hearts.  

  • What exactly is a "mind"? And how is it different from the "soul"? Is it even different from the soul or are they the same thing?

  • Braig says he has his hands full with his own plans. What are these plans and what is he off doing?

    • We need to wait for Kingdom Hearts iii for that.

  • In the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending, we see the Organization XIII members who were residents of Radiant Garden lying on the floor after being recompleted as people again. We also see Braig, who is not lying on the floor like the rest of them. He presumably woke up before them. (We know this Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and before Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance Because Ienzo is an adult in this cutscene. There is a cutscene in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance that shows Even and Ienzo on the floor turning into Heartless/Nobodies and Ienzo is a little kid in that cutscene, so we know the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded because we know Ienzo grew up as an adult while he was a Nobody.) In Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, we see Xigbar. It is thought that this is actually Braig, not Xigbar and he's just going by the name Xigbar for some reason (most likely because of the Recusant's Sigil in that name). If this is the same recompleted Braig that we saw in the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending, then how come he has long hair again and how come he has gray in his hair again? It would not make sense for him to just all of a sudden change appearance and grow hair that quickly. Is this actually Xigbar and not Braig, and they were just implying that it was Braig just to trick us? If it's Xigbar, then that can either mean that he was brought to the present day from time travel, or that can mean that Young Xehanort turned the recompleted Braig back into a Nobody for some reason (maybe he's stronger as a Nobody?). Also, do people keep their appearances that they had as Nobodies when they turn back into people, or are they reverted to how they looked before they were turned into Nobodies? This is very unclear. It seems that some parts of them did keep their appearance and some parts of them didn't for some reason. Ienzo, Lea, and Isa aged as Nobodies and kept their ages when they turned back into people. Lea lost the markings under his eyes when he became a person again though for some reason. From what we know, this is how it is: You are reverted back to how you looked before you became a Nobody, but you keep your age. For example, Lea was reverted to how he looked before he became a Nobody which is why he lost the markings under his eyes, but he still looks older because he kept his age.

  • Why did Lea and Isa get recompleted with their black coats on? Does that mean they were the only ones who were wearing black coats before they became Nobodies?

    • Possibly. We don’t know the full details on how Isa and Lea join the organization. Still very vague.

  • Ienzo seems to have known this whole time that the original person can get recompleted if their Heartless and Nobody is destroyed, so when he was Zexion, why did he act like he didn't know?

    • My guess Zexion did not know until later on. After his somebody did went to the research office first and looked for something. Must be finding more evidence to prove his hypothesis.

  • It has been confirmed that Axel, Roxas, Xion, and Naminé all grew hearts. As seen with Roxas, if your Nobody grows a heart and recombines with your other pieces to recreate the original person, the heart that the Nobody grew will be trapped inside of you. Since Axel grew a heart of his own and has been recompleted, does this mean that Lea now has two hearts: his original heart and the heart his Nobody grew? Or did the heart that his Nobody grew combine with his original heart? If so, then why didn't Roxas' heart combine with Sora's?

    • Axel remembered most of his lifetime as Lea. Roxas did not remembered most of his lifetime since Sora’s time as a heartless is short. Roxas had time to develop into his own person as stated by Sora in Dream Drop Distance. Roxas and Sora are not the same. Why would Axel and Lea have two hearts if they are both the same in both memory and heart? Axel and Lea may have combined into one. 

  • Tetsuya Nomura said that Nobodies don't age, but Axel, Saïx, and Zexion all clearly aged. Maybe you need a heart to age, and since Axel grew a heart, he didn't count as a regular Nobody so he aged? Does this mean Saïx and Zexion grew hearts as well?

    • Just a retcon. Sometimes word of god can flip-flop on rules sometimes depending on how the story is going.

  • What's the situation with Eraqus being inside of Terra's heart? After Terra-Xehanort split into a Heartless and Nobody, what happened with Eraqus' heart, and where is Eraqus' heart now?

    • Wait for Kingdom Hearts iii. Other than I have no clue on this one either.

  • In the Xehanort's Reports, it is stated that when the χ-blade is forged, then the real Kingdom Hearts will appear. So, we can assume that the Kingdom Hearts we see in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep is the real Kingdom Hearts that came out of the darkness it was lost to way back in the Age of Fairy Tales, because that was around the time that the χ-blade was being forged. But, in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, Master Xehanort says "...the only real Kingdom Hearts was swallowed by the darkness, never to surface again." So, if the real Kingdom Hearts never surfaced again after it was swallowed by the darkness in the Age of Fairy Tales, then what Kingdom Hearts is the one we see in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep? It's obviously not Ansem, Seeker of Darkness' artificial Kingdom Hearts or Xemnas' artificial Kingdom Hearts, since those started being created sometime after Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. So, how did this Kingdom Hearts come to be and why was it there during the end of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep?

    • The x-blade created during BBS is the result of both Vanita’s pure darkness and Ventus’s pure light colliding with one another. The Kingdom Hearts in BBS is most likely an artificial/failsafe one since Xehanort stated the true way to create it is to have 13 pieces of darkness and 7 pieces of light to clash with each other. Xehanort even admitted it is the true way and acted out of impulse.

  • Why did the time traveling members of the Thirteen Seekers of Darkness go back to their own time? And how are they going to come back?

  • The Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states: "Due to discarding his body and becoming the Robed Figure, all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to travel through time. However, the only ones actually able to do so were the Robed Figure and the one he had given his power to, Young Xehanort." If all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to travel through time, then why were the Robed Figure and Young Xehanort the only ones able to do so? That's obviously not the case though since we see Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness from the past in present-day Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Did they not time travel? Is Young Xehanort gathering them from across time different from them time travelling? If so, then how so? Tetsuya Nomura states that Young Xehanort "borrows" the power to time travel in one interview, states that Young Xehanort "gained the ability" from the Robed Figure by making contact with him in one interview, and the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania States he "gave" Young Xehanort some of his own power. Which one is the truth? Did Young Xehanort borrow the power from the Robed Figure, did the Robed Figure give Young Xehanort some of his power, or did Young Xehanort gain the power by making contact with the Robed Figure? Oh, and why did the Robed Figure even need to give Young Xehanort some of his power to travel through time in the first place if all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to do so anyway? Tetsuya Nomura states 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." What does Tetsuya Nomura mean by "summon"? I assume he's referring to the fact that a version of you has to exist at your destination in time in order for you to time travel there and that Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness would use Young Xehanort as that version of themselves they need to travel to the future. But, like stated above, the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania says that only the Robed Figure and Young Xehanort can travel through time for some reason. And this brings us back to one of the questions I asked above: Is Young Xehanort gathering/summoning them from across time different from them travelling? And if so, then how so?

  • The Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states that Xehanort's heart being in thirteen vessels serves as raw material for the X-blade. Why is this? Xehanort's heart isn't pure darkness, so how does him putting his heart into thirteen vessels work for creating the X-blade?

    • Considering how Xehanort just let the darkness corrupt him and all the terrible things he did, Xehanort might as well be pure evil and all “good intentions” he preaches are all twisted and distorted to his selfish needs at this point.

  • What was the Riku that Riku saw in Monstro in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance? Was it the dream world projecting an image of Riku from the first Kingdom Hearts? Putting Riku "back in his place", like it did to Jiminy in Sora's side of Prankster's Paradise? If so, then why is he wearing a black coat? Riku wasn't wearing a black coat in the first Kingdom Hearts, and the world's only dream about their pasts, so this wouldn't make sense. Is it a Seeker of Darkness? If that Riku is a Seeker of Darkness, is it Riku Replica? If it's Riku Replica, then why did Riku say "That was my... my dark side. I gave into the darkness once, and ever since, it's chased be 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 versions of his darkness that have chased him around in one form or another. He lists Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and Riku Replica and then says that now, he's facing himself. So, it's not Riku Replica, right? Unless Riku's just assuming it's not Riku Replica. If it's just himself (Riku) that he was facing, then was it when he was a villain in the first Kingdom Hearts that's time traveled to present-day to be a Seeker of Darkness? If it's Riku Replica or himself from the first game time traveled to present-day to be a Seeker of Darkness, then how come Young Xehanort isn't there with him? Like stated above, Tetsuya Nomura stated that Young Xehanort functioned as a "portal" that summoned the Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. Wouldn't it be the same for Riku Replica/Riku from the first game and any other time traveling Seekers of Darkness? If not, then why?

    • ​The whole facing me thing may just be Riku beating himself up too much for letting himself be corrupted by darkness. He was being more metaphoric in that sense. As for why there is only one person without Young Xehanort acting as a portal. This is a stretch, but Rhyme was used as a portal for Joshua's friends but most of the time they are separated but are still able to act on their accord somewhat. It is possible both Young Xehanort and Xemnas meeting Sora and Riku meeting with the doppelganger in Prankster's Paradise happened at the same time, so you could say the portal is there but we just can't see it because that is not the main focus for the Riku portion of pranksters paradise. Ansem SoD was able to talk to Riku alone while they are both in TWTNW and Young Xehanort is nowhere to be seen, lending more to how the portal does not have to be close to the recipient of the portal in order to work or transport. Ansem SoD may have just been messing with Riku by transforming as him. I admit this is dubious but if finish Hollow Bastion before finishing Monstro in KH1 than alternate takes of the scenes take place. So instead of real Riku messing with Sora, it is Ansem SoD messing with him. Sora even states Ansem SoD is not Riku. Again it is another stretch but it is possible Ansem SoD can transform. I realize if you don't count the Robed Figure and TWTNW appearnces Ansem SoD's full appearance with Young Xehanort only happens in the Notre Dame world. Most of it is just has Young Xehanort taunting Riku alone. 

  • How are we going to save Ventus, Terra, Roxas, Xion, and Naminé?

  • What is the Key to Return Hearts?

    • We have to wait and see once Kingdom Hearts iii releases.

  • It was shown that the "illusion" of Terra we see in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage-was there because of Naminé's help. This took place right after Sora went into the pod to restore his memory, so why/how did Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- end with how the first *Kingdom Hearts game ended? How does that make any sense timeline wise?

    • There’s is honestly no concrete answer saying where the whole Terra/Namine conversation takes place. This is only an interpretation on my part and there is no way to confirm this but my guess the meeting between them after Namine was born and tested what she can do and managed to find all of these connections before the Organization took her hostage. Just a guess honestly.

  • How did Terra-Xehanort know about the Chamber of Waking?

    • I believe it is in the scene in 0.2. where Terra and Aqua meet. Terra-Xehanort asked a trick question to make Aqua lose her guard. 

    • Quote Qrow: (Xehanort was trained in the Land of Departure and as a Master, he knows the secrets of the land just like master Eraqus stated to Aqua in BbS. So he knows that castle Oblivion is Land of Departure and about the Chamber of Waking.)

  • If the dark counterpart of Keyblades of Light (Keyblades of Darkness) are found on the dark side of the world the Keyblade of Light was gained at, then does that mean Keyblades of Darkness are only created when a world that a Keyblade of Light was gained at falls to darkness? Or are Keyblade of Darkness counterparts to Keyblades of Light created in the Realm of Darkness right when a Keyblade of Light is gained, but just teleports to the world the Keyblade of Light was gained at when it falls to darkness?

    • Xehanort’s reports mentioned something about how the Keyblade of hearts are a third type which only appear after the Keyblade War. This implies both Light and Dark keyblades have existed for many years during the Age of Fairy Tales. Makes sense the world of the Kingdom Hearts series is made of both light and darkness. As Mickey quotes: “You can’t have one without the other, because darkness is half of everything.” MoM is the one who created the first keyblade which is No-Name, so it is possible a dark counterpart is created after a light one is created. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Keyblade_of_heart#cite_note-1 )

  • How did Aqua and Mickey end up at the Realm of Darkness area that was behind the Door to Darkness? There was just a flash of light and then they got teleported there. What was that flash of light from and how did they get teleported there?

  • How did Mickey get his shirt back in time for Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories after it got destroyed by the Demon Tide?

  • How long ago does Kingdom Hearts χ take place? We know the Age of Fairy Tales takes place "more than a hundred years before Sora received the Keyblade", but "more than a hundred years" is a very vague number.

    • I admit it is a very vague number. Usually whenever cosmic origins like this happen they usually do take place millions of years in the past.

  • What is the name and identity of The Master of Masters?

    • This one is kind of a stretch, but we can speculate it may have something to do with the Seven deadly sins since all besides MoM are named after them. MoM’s name represents pride by process of elimination. Hints of this can seen on the sigil on top of the black box. If you look closely it roughly spells out “Super” (from Superbia meaning pride in latin).

  • What were the Foretellers' and Luxu's original names before the Master of Masters gave them new names and what do their faces look like?

    • For the names, I admit I am lost here as well. For the faces, Kingdom Hearts iii will likely show them, but nothing is concrete yet. It does help to build up hype.

  • Who is Xehanort and  Eraqus' master? Is it Luxu, or was there another generation in-between them and Luxu?

    • Wait for Kingdom Hearts iii

  • What's in the box that The Master of Masters gave to Luxu?

    • Wait for Kingdom Hearts iii

  • Why did The Master of Masters disappear?

    • Again, we need to wait for Kingdom Hearts iii

  • How do the Dandelions survive the Keyblade War and the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?

    • They made it to the Unchained Realm. Master Ava did ordered the rest of the Dandelions to not fight and go to the world outside.

  • How does Luxu survive the Keyblade War and the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?

    • Could be a similar method just like how the Dandelions took refuge at the Unchained Realm.

  • How were the pillars of ground that Xehanort created in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep at the Keyblade Graveyard during the first Keyblade War way back in the Age of Fairy Tales in the "The World's End" cutscene from Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage? Or does "The World's End" cutscene take place in Kingdom Hearts III?

    • Honestly it could be just a nod/reference to past games again. The keyblade graveyard/badlands does have a lot of high rock formations and not just flat ground.

  • If The Master of Masters only put his one eye on one Keyblade, then how are there so many eyes on so many Keyblades in the future?

  • Were the Player, Ephemer, Skuld, Blaine, and all of the other Keyblade wielders from the Age of Fairy Tales Bequeathed or did they forge their own Keyblades? Or did they get passed down Keyblades from a Keyblade Master?

    • Kingdom Hearts Union Cross is still updating the story so we still we need to wait until then. Or you could just argue they are just like the player characters and just got them while being part of a union.

  • How was present-day Maleficent there during the Age of Fairy Tales during the Kingdom Hearts χ secret ending?

    • This could provide some insight on what happened, but we still have to wait and see 

  • How did the light from children's hearts recreate the World? Do children's hearts just simply have the ability to create an entire universe? Or was Kairi's Grandma just being vague in her story? If so, then what really happened?

    • We need to wait in the not-so-distant future since KHUx is still ongoing and updating constantly. I will say since it is Kairi’s Grandma telling the story and not an actual witness of the creation of the worlds the story could have been just distorted due to people telling different versions of the legend in the past. Kind of like how Greek Mythology and Roman Mythology have similar tales told from a different set of eyes.

I think it is safe to remember the majority of the worlds in Kingdom Hearts originated from other film and video game franchises such as Cinderella and TWEWY. So of course they take place in some real-life location since the creators of the original did not have a crossover franchise like Kingdom Hearts in mind obviously while making them. (Source: [/size]

This doesn't answer the question from a plot/story perspective.

 

I am just going to use Occam’s Razor here and say it could just a graphic quirk not meant to be in the game or just a little easter egg. Not much here is worth reading too much into.

Well, yeah. But that doesn't answer it from a plot/story perspective. I know it's not worth really looking into, but it's still an unanswered question.

 

My guess when some of the worlds are restored they just happened to be on the same land which is part of the grass area/crossroads world. Kind of  stretch honestly but it is the best guess I can think of for this.

Castle Oblivion never fell to darkness.

 

If I recall, The voice talking to Sora in Kingdom Hearts 1’s Dive to Heart is actually King Mickey. I think he is the voice talking to Riku while he is wandering around in the realm of darkness. Not sure why he does not do this often, but there is a source to this on the wiki. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Dive_to_the_Heart,

I know, this is the basis of question. My question is how did Mickey know about them? How did Mickey know to contact them?

 

Since the ghost of Scar is not Scar’s heartless form, it could be one of the lingering darknesses latent abilities (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/The_Ghost_of_Scar#Journal)

That doesn't answer how they were able to merge together to create an Emblem Heartless. Emblem Heartless were all created from Apprentice Xehanort's machine, so how is that possible?

 

It is implied in the credits of Birth by Sleep that he used the red ship to travel there. (Source:

He had the name "Stitch" in Hollow Bastion, so he had to have landed in the Lilo & Sitch world first because Lilo is the one who names him "Stitch".

 

Considering Braig got his scar on his right eye from a battle, I think it is safe to assume he just got the scar while fighting. Again it is one of those things you should not read too much into.

Nomura has heavily implied in interviews that Saix's scar is related to the Recusant's Sigil. Seems very worth looking into to me.

 

Ansem the Wise did say anything can happened when the machine is going to explode. (Source:

Yeah, but that doesn't explain it.

 

It is part of the realm of darkness. If it is not the case than what Riku said near the end of Kingdom Hearts ii would not make sense in context. (Source:

What? I never said it wasn't a part of the Realm of Darkness.

 

Ventus’s heart still needed to be healed. If it were to be released than it will be detrimental to Ventus

It takes place 10 years after BBS. There's no way it's not healed by then. When he first connected with Sora's heart, it only took a few seconds for Sora's heart to heal Ventus'. I don't see why it'd take over 10 years to heal his heart the second time.

 

The sevens pieces of light don’t protect the the seven princesses, the seven princesses are the seven pieces of light. What do you mean by “protecting the number of pure hearts”? The wording is a little fuzzy for me. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Princesses_of_Heart)

Yen Sid: The Keyblade Wars of yore plunged the true Kingdom Hearts into darkness, and the X-blade was shattered. But the light still shining in the hearts of children rebuilt the world that we know today. And the light from the broken X-blade was then divided into seven, to protect the number of pure hearts in the world.

 

They are both the same thing. (Source: https://www.khwiki.com/Soul)

Wikis aren't a proper source to use. They can be edited by anyone, therefore unreliable. Use the sources that are provided at the bottom of wiki pages, if there are any. And there's none for this page.

A year ago, I attempted to make a list of all of the unanswered questions (some people might refer to them as plot holes, though that's slightly inaccurate) in the Kingdom Hearts series. I've been researching, replaying through the games, reading Nomura interviews, and so on, and greatly increasing my Kingdom Hearts knowledge. And I've been slowly updating this list. I've been removing things that have actually been answered and I've added things that haven't. And now, I believe that I have an accurate list that's very close to being a complete list of all the unanswered questions. Tetsuya Nomura said that all questions will be answered in Kingdom Hearts III. After discovering all of these unanswered questions, I doubt that'll be the case, but this list would be fun to use as a list to check off unanswered questions while playing through Kingdom Hearts III and reading interviews that follow the game's release. So, here it is:

 

(Oh, and also, if you think you found an answer to any of these questions, please provide your source in your comment. Thank you!)

 

Complete List of Unanswered Questions

  • Why are there globes and maps of Earth and real world locations in some worlds? Are some worlds just alternate reality-type Earths that exist simultaneously but separately? Or did all the worlds used to be Earth when they were all together in one massive World in the Age of Fairy Tales, and the globes and maps are just artifacts of history?
  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, why does Winnie the Pooh's letter to Rabbit have "Mickey Mouse" written on the front with a crown symbol? Also, if you come back later, it'll instead be a letter from Roo. This letter also has "Mickey Mouse" written on the front with a crown symbol. Why is that?
  • Some residents of Halloween Town, such as Jack, The Mayor, Dr. Finkelstein, etc. all know about the Heartless because Jack found a book about the Heartless. Who wrote this book full of research notes?
  • How did Sora, Donald, and Goofy end up at the grassy area outside of Castle Oblivion? Did they go there simply by Gummi Ship? Or were they sent there by being sucked into a Corridor of Darkness?
  • What was written on the letter that Pluto was holding in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories? It's obviously not the same one from the end of Kingdom Hearts II since Mickey wrote that at the end of Kingdom Hearts coded.
  • In Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories, how and why did Donald and Goofy's clothes change?
  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, how did Mickey know about Sora and Riku, and how did he know that they got a Keyblade? Yen Sid has the ability to sort of sense things and people in other realms and worlds, so did Yen Sid tell Mickey about them?
  • In the first Kingdom Hearts, we see a cutscene of young Kairi and Kairi's Grandma in the library of Ansem the Wise's castle in Radiant Garden. Why were they there? Do they know Ansem the Wise? are they related to Ansem the Wise? Does Ansem the Wise just let people into his castle sometimes? Or is the library a public library or something like that?
  • Why did the guards in Land of Dragons turn into Emblem Heartless (Nightwalkers)? If they were succumbing to the darkness, then they should've turned into Pureblood Heartless. Were they just Nightwalkers disguised as guards or something?
  • How did the Ghosts of Scar form together to create an Emblem Heartless (Groundshaker)? Shouldn't they have created a Pureblood Heartless if anything? Did they just form together with a Living Bone and Shaman Heartless or something?
  • How did Stitch get to Hollow Bastion?
  • How did Saïx get his scar?
  • What is the name and identities of Luxord, Larxene, Demyx, and Marluxia's original human forms?
  • Why hasn't Xemnas wielded a Keyblade? (Assuming he has the ability to). If he doesn't have the ability to wield a Keyblade, then why?
  • How did Ansem the Wise's machine exploding turn Riku back to normal and how did it transport Ansem the Wise to the Realm of Darkness?
  • Why does Apprentice Xehanort have brown eyes instead of yellow?
  • Why does Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness have orange eyes instead of yellow?
  • How did Sora and Riku get from the place where they fought the final fight against Xemnas in Kingdom Hearts II to the Dark Margin in the Realm of Darkness?
  • How did Kairi's message in a bottle end up at the Dark Margin?
  • "End of Sea" is the name of a world that's half in the Realm of Darkness and half in the Realm Between. Dark Margin is a location at the very tip of this world. The ocean that we see there acts as a border between the Realm of Darkness and the Realm Between. How are there worlds in the Realm of Darkness still? They should've all returned to the Realm of Light after Sora sealed the Door to Darkness and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness' artificial Kingdom Hearts broke apart. Does this mean there are worlds native to the Realm of Darkness that have always never had a heart?
  • Tetsuya Nomura has stated that Ventus' heart stayed within Sora's body AKA his Nobody, Roxas when Sora was separated from his body and soul and became a Heartless. What is the reason for this? Why didn't it get released along with the other hearts?
  • How did Ventus become so tiny when he went to Castle of Dreams? Tetsuya Nomura said it was because he somehow messed up traveling to the world and ended up tiny, but how does that even happen? How does you not knowing how to properly travel to worlds make you end up very small? I assume that we just simply don't completely know how physics and stuff works in the KH universe, but it'd be nice to get a specific answer to this question.
  • How is the ship in Deep Space able to access the Lanes Between without a Keyblade or Corridors of Darkness?
  • If the Unversed are created by Vanitas and come from Vanitas, then how was Lady Tremaine able to turn the coach into an Unversed and how was The Queen able to turn the Spirit of the Magic Mirror into an Unversed?
  • Why did Lea and Isa go into Ansem the Wise's castle in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, and why did they get kicked out?
  • How did Terra-Xehanort end up at Radiant Garden after the explosion from the χ-blade?
  • When Terra-Xehanort split himself up into a Heartless and a Nobody, why weren't two Nobodies created? When Sora became a Heartless, his own heart and Kairi's heart released from his body. This created Roxas and Naminé. When Terra-Xehanort became a Heartless, the same thing should've happened. Terra's heart and Xehanort's heart were released from Terra's body. This should've created a Terra Nobody and a Xehanort Nobody, but instead, Xemnas was created; someone who is a mixture of both Terra and Xehanort. Why?
  • How did Young Xehanort leave Destiny Islands and get to Land of Departure?
  • Why doesn't Young Xehanort have pointy ears like he does when he's older?
  • Why does Xehanort's Keyblade Armor have the Nobody emblem on it?
  • How did Riku obtain his second Keyblade (Way to the Dawn) after Sora took his first one (Kingdom Key)? Getting Bequeathed causes a Keyblade to choose you, so when Sora took his Keyblade, did another Keyblade choose him? Is that what happens if you lose your Keyblade somehow? Another one will choose you?
  • The Master of Masters forged and tempered Keyblades by pulling them out of the depths of hearts. And ever since then, if you are Bequeathed, a Keyblade will choose you. If all Keyblades already exist somewhere out there and were created long ago, then how come some people's Keyblades resemble them or their character/personality? For example, Lea's Keyblade resembles one of his Eternal Flames Chakrams with fire coming out of it and Riku's Keyblade resembles his Soul Eater sword?
  • Where did Riku get the Keyblade he gave to Kairi (Destiny's Embrace)? And why did he even have to give her a Keyblade since one should've already chosen her since she was Bequeathed?
  • Who Bequeathed Lea?
  • Why does the Kingdom Key look exactly like the two blades that are a part of the χ-blade?
  • It was stated that the pieces of light of the χ-blade were split into seven pieces to protect the number of pure hearts in the world. This is referring to the Seven Princesses of Heart. The Seven Princesses of Heart didn't exist way back in the Age of Fairy Tales though, so how did the χ-blade know that they were going to be born in the future?
  • While Aqua was carrying Ventus' comatose body, his Keyblade raised and opened a door that led them to the Land of Departure. This door was not a method of travel that we've ever seen or heard about before. It wasn't one of the portals they've been opening with their Keyblades, it wasn't a Gate, and it wasn't a Corridor of Darkness. It looked pretty much exactly like the Door to Light from the end of Kingdom Hearts II. So, what was this door? Was it the Door to Light?
  • What exactly is a "mind"? And how is it different from the "soul"? Is it even different from the soul or are they the same thing?
  • Braig says he has his hands full with his own plans. What are these plans and what is he off doing?
  • In the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending, we see the Organization XIII members who were residents of Radiant Garden lying on the floor after being recompleted as people again. We also see Braig, who is not lying on the floor like the rest of them. He presumably woke up before them. (We know this Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded and before Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance because Ienzo is an adult in this cutscene. There is a cutscene in the beginning of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance that shows Even and Ienzo on the floor turning into Heartless/Nobodies and Ienzo is a little kid in that cutscene, so we know the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending takes place after Kingdom Hearts Re:coded because we know Ienzo grew up as an adult while he was a Nobody.) In Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, we see Xigbar. It is thought that this is actually Braig, not Xigbar and he's just going by the name Xigbar for some reason (most likely because of the Recusant's Sigil in that name). If this is the same recompleted Braig that we saw in the Kingdom Hearts Re:coded secret ending, then how come he has long hair again and how come he has gray in his hair again? It would not make sense for him to just all of a sudden change appearance and grow hair that quickly. Is this actually Xigbar and not Braig, and they were just implying that it was Braig just to trick us? If it's Xigbar, then that can either mean that he was brought to the present day from time travel, or that can mean that Young Xehanort turned the recompleted Braig back into a Nobody for some reason (maybe he's stronger as a Nobody?). Also, do people keep their appearances that they had as Nobodies when they turn back into people, or are they reverted to how they looked before they were turned into Nobodies? This is very unclear. It seems that some parts of them did keep their appearance and some parts of them didn't for some reason. Ienzo, Lea, and Isa aged as Nobodies and kept their ages when they turned back into people. Lea lost the markings under his eyes when he became a person again though for some reason. From what we know, this is how it is: You are reverted back to how you looked before you became a Nobody, but you keep your age. For example, Lea was reverted to how he looked before he became a Nobody which is why he lost the markings under his eyes, but he still looks older because he kept his age.
  • Why did Lea and Isa get recompleted with their black coats on? Does that mean they were the only ones who were wearing black coats before they became Nobodies?
  • Ienzo seems to have known this whole time that the original person can get recompleted if their Heartless and Nobody is destroyed, so when he was Zexion, why did he act like he didn't know?
  • It has been confirmed that Axel, Roxas, Xion, and Naminé all grew hearts. As seen with Roxas, if your Nobody grows a heart and recombines with your other pieces to recreate the original person, the heart that the Nobody grew will be trapped inside of you. Since Axel grew a heart of his own and has been recompleted, does this mean that Lea now has two hearts: his original heart and the heart his Nobody grew? Or did the heart that his Nobody grew combine with his original heart? If so, then why didn't Roxas' heart combine with Sora's?
  • Tetsuya Nomura said that Nobodies don't age, but Axel, Saïx, and Zexion all clearly aged. Maybe you need a heart to age, and since Axel grew a heart, he didn't count as a regular Nobody so he aged? Does this mean Saïx and Zexion grew hearts as well?
  • Where is Terra's heart and body? Is Xehanort still possessing it, but just making it look like his old man form, like how Ansem, Seeker of Darkness in the first Kingdom Hearts was still possessing Riku's body, but making it look like himself?
  • What's the situation with Eraqus being inside of Terra's heart? After Terra-Xehanort split into a Heartless and Nobody, what happened with Eraqus' heart, and where is Eraqus' heart now?
  • Who are all of the Seven Guardians of Light?
  • Who are all of the Thirteen Seekers of Darkness?
  • Why did the time traveling members of the Thirteen Seekers of Darkness go back to their own time? And how are they going to come back?
  • The Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states: "Due to discarding his body and becoming the Robed Figure, all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to travel through time. However, the only ones actually able to do so were the Robed Figure and the one he had given his power to, Young Xehanort." If all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to travel through time, then why were the Robed Figure and Young Xehanort the only ones able to do so? That's obviously not the case though since we see Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness from the past in present-day Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance. Did they not time travel? Is Young Xehanort gathering them from across time different from them time travelling? If so, then how so? Tetsuya Nomura states that Young Xehanort "borrows" the power to time travel in one interview, states that Young Xehanort "gained the ability" from the Robed Figure by making contact with him in one interview, and the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states he "gave" Young Xehanort some of his own power. Which one is the truth? Did Young Xehanort borrow the power from the Robed Figure, did the Robed Figure give Young Xehanort some of his power, or did Young Xehanort gain the power by making contact with the Robed Figure? Oh, and why did the Robed Figure even need to give Young Xehanort some of his power to travel through time in the first place if all incarnations of Xehanort gained the ability to do so anyway? Tetsuya Nomura states 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." What does Tetsuya Nomura mean by "summon"? I assume he's referring to the fact that a version of you has to exist at your destination in time in order for you to time travel there and that Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness would use Young Xehanort as that version of themselves they need to travel to the future. But, like stated above, the Kingdom Hearts Ultimania says that only the Robed Figure and Young Xehanort can travel through time for some reason. And this brings us back to one of the questions I asked above: Is Young Xehanort gathering/summoning them from across time different from them travelling? And if so, then how so?
  • The Kingdom Hearts Ultimania states that Xehanort's heart being in thirteen vessels serves as raw material for the X-blade. Why is this? Xehanort's heart isn't pure darkness, so how does him putting his heart into thirteen vessels work for creating the X-blade?
  • What was the Riku that Riku saw in Monstro in Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance? Was it the dream world projecting an image of Riku from the first Kingdom Hearts? Putting Riku "back in his place", like it did to Jiminy in Sora's side of Prankster's Paradise? If so, then why is he wearing a black coat? Riku wasn't wearing a black coat in the first Kingdom Hearts, and the worlds only dream about their pasts, so this wouldn't make sense. Is it a Seeker of Darkness? If that Riku is a Seeker of Darkness, is it Riku Replica? If it's Riku Replica, then why did Riku say "That was my... my dark side. I gave into the darkness once, and ever since, it's chased be 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 versions of his darkness that have chased him around in one form or another. He lists Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and Riku Replica and then says that now, he's facing himself. So, it's not Riku Replica, right? Unless Riku's just assuming it's not Riku Replica. If it's just himself (Riku) that he was facing, then was it when he was a villain in the first Kingdom Hearts that's time traveled to present-day to be a Seeker of Darkness? If it's Riku Replica or himself from the first game time traveled to present-day to be a Seeker of Darkness, then how come Young Xehanort isn't there with him? Like stated above, Tetsuya Nomura stated that Young Xehanort functioned as a "portal" that summoned the Xemnas and Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. Wouldn't it be the same for Riku Replica/Riku from the first game and any other time traveling Seekers of Darkness? If not, then why?
  • How are we going to save Ventus, Terra, Roxas, Xion, and Naminé?
  • What is the Key to Return Hearts?
  • In the Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance secret ending, Goofy says that Lea hurried back to Radiant Garden. Why did he hurry back to Radiant Garden?
  • It was shown that the "illusion" of Terra we see in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- was there because of Naminé's help. This took place right after Sora went into the pod to restore his memory, so why/how did Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- end with how the first Kingdom Hearts game ended? How does that make any sense timeline wise?
  • How did Terra-Xehanort know about the Chamber of Waking?
  • If the dark counterpart of Keyblades of Light (Keyblades of Darkness) are found on the dark side of the world the Keyblade of Light was gained at, then does that mean Keyblades of Darkness are only created when a world that a Keyblade of Light was gained at falls to darkness? Or are Keyblade of Darkness counterparts to Keyblades of Light created in the Realm of Darkness right when a Keyblade of Light is gained, but just teleports to the world the Keyblade of Light was gained at when it falls to darkness?
  • How did Aqua and Mickey end up at the Realm of Darkness area that was behind the Door to Darkness? There was just a flash of light and then they got teleported there. What was that flash of light from and how did they get teleported there? Was it the flash of light that came out of the Door to Darkness when Sora said "Kingdom Hearts is light"?
  • How did Mickey get his shirt back in time for Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories after it got destroyed by the Demon Tide?
  • How long ago does Kingdom Hearts χ take place? We know the Age of Fairy Tales takes place "more than a hundred years before Sora received the Keyblade", but "more than a hundred years" is a very vague number.
  • What is the name and identity of The Master of Masters?
  • What were the Foretellers' and Luxu's original names before the Master of Masters gave them new names and what do their faces look like?
  • Who is Xehanort or Eraqus' master? Is it Luxu, or was there another generation in-between them and Luxu?
  • What's in the box that The Master of Masters gave to Luxu?
  • How was The Master of Masters able to see through the future with the Eye of Darkness when it wasn't even passed down yet? Wouldn't that just be him looking into the present since he has to wait until it's passed down?
  • Why did The Master of Masters disappear?
  • How do the Dandelions survive the Keyblade War and the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?
  • How does Luxu survive the Keyblade War and the darkness that covers the World after the Keyblade War?
  • If The Master of Masters only put his one eye on one Keyblade, then how are there so many eyes on so many Keyblades in the future?
  • Who Bequeathed Ventus, the Player, Ephemer, Skuld, Blaine, and all of the other Keyblade wielders from the Age of Fairy Tales?
  • How was present-day Maleficent there during the Age of Fairy Tales during the Kingdom Hearts χ secret ending?
  • How did the light from children's hearts recreate the World? Do children's hearts just simply have the ability to create an entire universe? Or was Kairi's Grandma just being vague in her story? If so, then what really happened?

End Notes & Updates

 

If you'd like to know more about the Braig/Xigbar situation talked about above, check out my explanation on the whole situation here.

 

I'll be updating this list if I happen to find any more unanswered questions, so be sure to check back here every month or so! I doubt I'll find much more, but just in case.

Also, in KH2, if Naminé restored the memories of Sora and ALL of his allies, then how come Ariel doesn't remember Ursula and all the troubles the mermaid has been through in KH1?
