"Has-been" and "Also-ran" XD Minor KH3 spoilers

Recommended Posts

Very minor spoilers

Did anyone else kinda cringe laugh at the bad puns of nicknames they were trying to use in KH3??

I actually thought Sora calling the Nobodies 'Has-beens' was kinda mean because it's rubbing it in that they used to be sobodies and lost their hearts. I wonder what the Japanese version of that was XD

And then Xemnas trying to make a pun calling Axel an 'Also-ran' which makes me think the only possible explanation is Marluxia told him about Sora name calling and Xemnas spent the rest of the freaking game trying to think of a good come back and this was the best he could come up with!!!


Again, would really love to know what that was in the Japanese version.

What even is an 'Also-ran'? I was just majorly confused.




I had to look it up myself because I was also confused. Essentially Xemnas was calling Axel a loser. Also-rans are people that also participated in a contest or race or something comparative and finished last by a significant margin. It's used as an insult to tell insinuate that people are such big losers they didn't matter in the slightest.

At first I thought also ran was like some reference to a name of a character from the past or something  lol because of the way Xemnas said it... 

But no it's just an insult. Like a guy who also ran in a race, he was just there, didn't really have any significance, just showed up and participated. 

Which is actually an actuate description of Lea's and indeed most of the 7 lights roles in the finale of this game. Ah well.
