  1. 1. What's your favorite encounter in the Keyblade Graveyard?

    • Luxord, Larxene, and Marluxia
    • Xigbar and Dark Riku
    • Saix and Xion
    • Terranort and Vanitas
    • Ansem, Xemnas, and Young Xehanort

Mine are as follows:

1. Xion and Saix
The way Axel was able to finally make up with Saix/Isa was really well done, as was Xion's return to the side of light. I found that the interaction with Isa here did a great job of humanizing him and making him much more sympathetic. Plus being able to have Roxas and Xion in your party was an awesome bonus.

2. Terranort and Vanitas
This one comes in a very close second. It gave us some amazing closure to the whole idea of the Wayfinder Trio reuniting and the whole scene with Terra managing to seize control of the Guardian was just perfect. Vanitas also became a little more sympathetic, which I liked. 

3. Xigbar and Dark Riku
This one was good, I guess. It was nice to see Repliku truly redeem himself, although I'm hoping we'll be seeing him again. Xigbar's always a lot of fun to watch, too.

4. Luxord, Larxene and Marluxia
This one was nice because it gave us a bit of insight into Larxene and Marluxia's characters. I also liked that it hinted towards the depth of their relationship (I'm assuming the person with whom Larxene was along for the ride was in fact Marluxia). I also liked the final conversation between Sora and Luxord.

5. Ansem, Xemnas and Young Xehanort
This one was actually pretty forgettable, which is such a shame because it was supposed to be the final clash before the game's big bad. Honestly, I don't really remember much of what was said aside from Young Xehanort repeating his warning that Sora won't survive the battle.

I LOVED the Xion and Saix fight. Especially after Roxas joins in and we get the amazing remix music Q~Q Plus Roxas and Xion returning had me literally sobbing. Tho I did kinda just keep hitting Saix until he fell down. Learning more about him and his motivations was really nice too :)

The encounter with Saix and Xion gets an honorable mention for basically everything that happened during it and for having the best boss theme in the entire series (in my opinion) play during the Saix boss fight once Roxas and Xion became your party members.  However, my favorite encounter was with Ansem, Xemnas, and Young Xehanort.  Never in my wildest dreams did I ever think that I would fight a boss fight against Xehanort's Heartless, Xehanort's Nobody, and Xehanort's younger self at the same time.  Plus, Master Xehanort was looking down on you the entire time, just watching the battle, while occasionally surrounding you in a vortex of Keyblades that he would hurl at you while his other selves attacked you.  To top it all off, the second best boss theme in the entire series (in my opinion) played during the boss fight.  It was amazing.

I pick the Saix/Xion one, because I'm super biased! All of the encounters were great. But only one returned to me my boi Roxas in all his dual wielding, overpowered glory. I cried so much. The image of Sora, Roxas, and Xion about to go into battle together is one of the most iconic scenes in KH3 for me. It almost makes me wish Roxas was using the regular Kingdom Key to start the battle, so we'd have three of them. The fusion of "The Other Promise" and "Vector to the Heavens" in their more triumphant versions has to be one of the best soundtracks in all KH. Then you have the emotional scene with Lea and Isa at the end. This game made me feel emotions for Isa/Saix of all people. Outstanding. When I play KH3 again with all the added difficulties and new content, this will be the encounter I'll put a save file for to play it over and over again. I love it. Seasalt Trio for life!

Second would be Vanitas/Terranort. Fighting these two with remixes of their themes was also epic. Funny, Vanitas and Terranort are put together. They both hurt my hand when I played BBS on the PSP. Those reactions commands from Vanitas, and those counterguards of Terranort. They were such nightmares, so when I saw these two paired together I was terrified.

Third would be Marluxia, Larxene, and Luxord. Why? I just like them. They're cool guys. I remember Larxene being the last one I took down, she was so fast in the fight, zipping from one point of the screen to the other. Luxord's end was also really nice. It fit his character that Days portrayed him.

Fourth and fifth are a mix up. I can't decide between the Norts or Xigbar/Dark Riku. It's a toss up. Both are good, but I don't know which I prefer. I really did like smacking around Dark Riku though. It reminded me of all the times I fought Riku in KH1. In fact Dark Riku was the very first Seeker I defeated in the Graveyard.

Definitely the Nort Court. While I didn't like the team up battles on the whole, I did enjoy how these three had a big team attack.

"That's Checkmate"

"Are you ready?"


Also, the intro with "If you survive that long" and the death scenes, especially Ansem's.
