The one thing I never wanted Kingdom Hearts 3 to be was more of the same predictable story-telling that didn't add anything, risk anything, or show deeper interaction between the characters. That's why I was so ecstatic when I saw Kairi in the secret ending of Kingdom Hearts 3D, I saw it as proof that Kingdom Hearts 3 would be taking things farther than any of the other games had.

 

What am I supposed to expect of Kairi at this point? Do you really expect me to WANT her to stay on that god-forsaken Island for another whole game? I'm excited for it, because we finally get to see her interact with the characters we've been told for so long are her best friends. We finally get to see more of what kind of person she actually is. Could any of that even have the potential to happen if she was trapped on that Island for the entirety of the next installment?

 

You make it sound like Kairi has no "place" in the majority of Kingdom Hearts at all. Do you really believe that shutting her out from all of the other characters is a good thing? Do you really want just more of the same? Well, I'm afraid I can't vouch for you there.

For a KH secret ending, it wasn't all that exciting as I saw Kairi sooner or later going to properly use the Keyblade. (With training to get ready ASAP for KH 3) Although at the same time I was excited because at least it was a confirmation she will.

This is probably a horrible idea. We've had a million side/filler games already. But for all those that are really interested in Kairi being being a keyblade weilder, they should make another game with Riku (our new keyblade master) training Kairi to wield the keyblade. Maybe make some sort of plot point that she has to visit the original worlds of all of the princesses to ensure that they are safe and protected from this upcoming keyblade war. Explain to them that Should the 7 lights (keyblade wielders) fail, it is up to them to join together and do w.e they can to stop the thirteen darknesses. something along those lines. Anyway, it would be a good opportunity to see kairi fight, and at least learn to use the keyblade so that its more believable when KH3 comes along. and then we can get fighting with her out of our systems and not worry about it too much. Possibly see her two or three times throughout the game as she carries on her part of the mission.. idk..just a thought. plus it would hold us over until KH3 actually comes out. 

 

then again..putting any effort into this Kairi game would distract from KH3, and i dont want to wait any longer for it so....theres that

Well I don't care about Kairi. She should be training. But if she takes GoL or spotlight from Donald and Goofy, I will dislike her a lot. She's already a pure light. Donald and Goofy were the ones that helped Sora with every obstacle they been through in KH, KH:CoM, and KH 2. If anything they deserve it more than Riku.

 

And I went off topic.

 

Kairi should be training with Axel.

Well, I think its pretty good that Kairi is going to be a Keyblade wielder and perhaps a Keyblade Master despite she is one of the seven Princesses of Heart and despite she DID touched Aqua's Keyblade by accident.

To me as a grown woman and after hearing my dad talking to me about defending myself from predators  A LOT of times, this is a really good benefit for Kairi to at least learn how to defend herself properly since she a Princess and you got bad guys going after her and the other Princesses.  It would be best for her to have a weapon to kick some butt if needed.  

 

Personally, that whole "Damsel in Distress" thing is REALLY getting old. I rather see her whooping some Nort-butts then her staying in Destiny Islands, waiting and potentially getting captured again.

I would like to see Kairi get involved with her keyblade as well. Though I don't think she'll have a major part in the final battle in KH3, I do think, and hope, that she will be doing something, and that we're gonna be seeing her training during Kh3 as well along with Lea, who has more fighting experience and hopefully will have a positive impact on her in learning how to fight.

 

Edit: Nevermind, she's definitely going to be one of the 7 GoL. I slightly thought it before, but now I'm sure especially after seeing the KH3D secret ending. I'm now sure it's going to be Mickey, Sora, Riku, Lea, Ventus, Aqua, and Kairi.

I think it really depends on where the series decides to take this.  If they should end up giving Kairi a great deal of development throughout making her a Keyblade wielder then that's great, but if she remains the flat'ish character she is I too agree that her addition in the main cast will only hurt and not help the game.  At this point we've really seen so little of Kairi, and what we have seen is the typical school girl with no real unique personality to speak of.  If she's like this, and we have to play as her a lot, I might cringe a little.

*cough* Lea *cough* And plus, I'm pretty sure you have to be a keyblade wielder to be a GoL, Donald and Goofy may be there beside Sora in the final fight, but most likely not as GoL. And in rebuttal to the "but Braig and Isa don't have keyblades" argument, remember Xehanort is putting some of himself inside each of them, so they will most likely be getting a keyblade from that. Nonetheless, I don't think she will be a GoL anywho, but will have some sort of role in the final fight.

Nomura has already mentioned that they don't HAVE to be keyblade wielders.Even donald and goofy could be lights .He said we would be surprised at who they are .So you never know ...

I was upset at First her coming and training just seems unnecessary. Anywho Kairi is a plot device, I'm pretty sure she's there just to get kidnapped and keep the plot moving nothing more.I just don't get why she had to get a key blade? she's just going to get in the way anyway

She had to get a keyblade because they decided they wanted her to have a keyblade. I'd say, you're blowing it a liiiitttle out of proportion.

I really didn't care for Kairi the whole series and I never wanted her to play a bigger role in KH3 because... well, in my eyes she, as a character, was just there.

But I'm going into Kingdom Hearts 3 completely open-minded. Maybe she will take the game to the next level, who knows :D
