    Ursalink got a reaction from The Transcendent Key in Wonderland - A sleeping world?   
    Kida? The one from "Atlantis: The lost empire"? I don't think so. This movie's world will definitely appear in the future, especially because of the part of "The Heart of Atlantis", but Kida doesn't fit for a "heart of pure light", considering how serious and violent her world is. She's not even from the Disney Princesses' franchise. (I know Alice isn't either, but Alice fits the kind of personality of the other princesses). Kida would fit more for party member.

    Ursalink got a reaction from 2 quid is good in The Difficulties of Writing a Story (KH3 Edition)   
    I completely share your point, pal. I personally have the hobby of storytelling/fanfiction, and writing a story is anything but easy. However, I don't care about what the public wil think or if they will like it; I write stories I know I will like, and that's enough. You can't please every single person after all. Writing the stories you will like to hear was one of the keys of Stan Lee's success, and I greatly admired that man. 
    However, it's also true that it's quite easier find error in another ones' work before your own. I have no regrets about Tetsuya Nomura's story for KH3, but some errors can't be avoided to be mentioned. 
    One of them, for me, it's the Replicas' topic. Ansem the Wise, Ienzo and the others used a Replica to restore Roxas; then, somehow, they managed to send it to the Keyblade Graveyard just in time to save Xion and Axel. In the meantime, the Replica used for Dark Riku was supposed to be used for Namine; but Sora and Riku didn't even bother to put it in some safe place until the battle was over. I can't stop thinkign that it could have been more easy if the Replica from Dark Riku was used for Roxas, and the Replica on Ansem the Wise's lab was used for Namine. Don't you think it could have been more logical this way?

    Ursalink got a reaction from Movies798 in Pixar's worlds in the future?   
    After seeing how improved the graphics of KH2 were, I knew worlds from CGI movies would be included to make them look the best possible way. Pixar's movies were clearly proof of that, alongside "Tangled", "Frozen" and "Big Hero 6". Compared with Disney, Pixar's movies are very few. So, which Pixar's worlds would you expect to see in the future games of KH? These are my candidates:  
      
    + "The Incredibles": Quite easy to guess. After the world of Big Hero 6, another world based on superheroes should be easy.   
    + "Brave": Merida could actually a party member, but she's also one of the candidates to be one of the "New Seven Hearts". Merida is CGI Princess, like Rapunzel, Anna and Elsa; so there are high chances for this.   
    + "A Bug's Life": A possibility to continue the story of the first movie is very interesting. Sora and co could take the form of bugs in this world.   
    + "Good Dinosaur": The Heartless in this world would certainly have to be big an powerful, in a world of intelligent dinosaurs. Since there are primitive humans in this world, I don't think Sora had to change form here. Arlo and the T-Rex's family would certainly be helpful to Sora.   
    + "Cars": It's difficult to imagine this world in Kingdom Hearts. Best option?, it could be a world of minigames where Sora has to race against Heartless or something. Goofy and Donald can have cars' forms, as there are Disney Pins with this idea, but I don't know how Sora could look. My guess?, maybe similar to McQueen.   
      
    "WALL-E" could have its characters to appear out of their world, like Remy; but I don't see its world working. "Finding Nemo" could turn too much like Atlantica as the best choice. "Inside Out" could be interesting, but I don't see how the world of our mind could work here.

    Thanks, pal. Glad you like this. 
     
    + About Neverland, I believe Jane can work perfectly. I mean, NeverLand seems to be a world where time doesn't pass. I mean, Wendy becomes adult and have children, but Peter, Hook and all other remain the same. Now that I think of it, "Jake and the NeverLand Pirates" could work, although they should adapt the character to be a little more "serious" and maybe a little "dark".   
      
    + About Land of the Dragons, yeah. Certainly, manipulation from the Heartless could be useful to improve the plot from "Mulan 2".

    Ursalink reacted to Dagesh Lene in The Difficulties of Writing a Story (KH3 Edition)   
    Not long after I finished Kingdom Hearts III, I made a post on this site called "Rewriting the Story of Kingdom Hearts III [SPOILERS]".  I am not the only person who made content like this, and even if people didn't post their own versions of the story, many of them did talk about how they would change certain parts of the story.  I was originally planning on releasing a "Final Mix" of my original post after I played the Re:Mind DLC, but I decided not to do that anymore for two reasons.
    First, looking back on the story of the game, there isn't much I didn't like about the story except for Sora fading away at the end of the game.  The cliffhanger ending combined with the foreshadowing for the next saga really made it seem like this wasn't a finale but just another game in a larger story.  I have since made peace with the fact that Sora faded away, especially after seeing that it was foreshadowed since the beginning of the game when Xigbar appeared before Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Hercules in Olympus.  So, while I am still not a fan of the large amount of foreshadowing for the next saga, there wasn't really any major story beats that I would change outside of when they happen in the game.
    Second, I don't think many people fully understand how difficult it is to write a story.  Rewriting a story using the power of hindsight is much easier than writing a story from scratch.  When you rewrite a story using hindsight, you use a story that has already been written and alter the parts that didn't work while keeping the story as close to the original as possible.  You are able to do this because you know what parts of the story worked and what parts didn't based on how the audience responded to the story.  However, when you write a story from scratch, you don't have the benefit of knowing what parts of the story worked and what parts didn't.  You have to guess what the audience will like while also telling the story you want to tell, and you have to find the right balance between the two.
    In conclusion, writing a story is hard, and acting as if you could do it better isn't giving Nomura the credit he deserves.  In fact, Nomura himself revealed to us how hard it was to write the Keyblade War scenes in Kingdom Hearts III.  Writing a story isn't as easy as asking yourself, "What would please people the most?" and writing that.  You definitely should keep in mind what will please your audience the most, but knowing what that is isn't as easy as it sounds, especially since you will never know for sure how your audience will react until you release your story.  This isn't to say you should never be critical of someone's story and give suggestions for improvement.  People will never learn if all you do is praise them.  And there probably are people out there who could write better stories.  However, acting as though writing a story that would make your audience happy is easy is not realizing just how difficult writing a story that pleases your audience can be.

    One of the best things about Kingdom Hearts is the idea of exploring new worlds, usually based on Disney's movies. However, you have to admit that, while it's logical for a world (which story has been completed) no longer to appear, there are quite several elements from some others that could be explored. Some worlds have been present during Sora's 3 main journeys, one way or another; like "The Lion King", "The Little Mermaid" and "Hercules". Also, KH3 showed us that the worlds not necesarrily need to follow the plot of their movies, as they can have different kinds of adventures (although with references to the movies). We have examples on "Toy Story", "Monsters Inc" and "Big Hero 6". Therefore, we should analyse which worlds can still be useful for Kingdom Hearts' franchise in future games. I won't count the live-action remakes because they would cause too many non-senses in the continuity. (Live-Action Maleficent is clearly way different from the classic animated Maleficent, for example). Let's see:   
      
    + "Wonderland": First time Sora visited this world, there wasn't too much to explore. In fact, the plot almost didn't follow the plot of the movie at all. More similar to the movie was the plot in KH:UX, where we also met in person other characters from the movie, like the Mad Hatter and the March Hare. The Caterpillar is another character from the movie who appeared in minor products of KH, but not in any main game. So, I believe a new adventure here should be in order.   
      
    + "Deep Jungle": It really bugs the fact that they couldn't use Tarzan's world for more than the first game. After the success of the whole KH's franchise, anyone could say Disney would have permission to use him again. Elements from the animated series of Tarzan would be useful to visit this world again; especially the new villains, like Tublat, the exiled gorilla. And on top of them, we have Queen La, wizard queen of the lost city of Opar.   
      
    + "Olympus": All the main points of the main movie has been already used, but considering how important have been this world through ALL the games, I believe we could still see it again thanks to the animated series of Hercules. That series put us mainly while Herc was in training and in the High School, but the antagonists used in it could be useful for new adventures. Between them we had Echidna (mother of al monsters), Ares (God of War) and Antaeus (the half titan).   
      
    + "Agrabah": Normally, we could say they already used the main movie and "The Return of Jafar". However, it doesn't have much sense how Jafar was defeated in KHII, as he was defeated, and then his lamp disappeared. To truly defeat Jafar, it should have been like in the movie, destroy the lamp and you destroy Jafar. With this, Jafar could still appear when less expected. Even so, we still have the animated series of Aladdin and the final movie "Aladding and the King of Thieves". Not to mention Sora still haven't seen elements from Agrabah that appeared in KH:UX, like the inside of the Palace, meeting the Sultan and Rasoul. We still have a lot to see from Agrabah.   
      
    + "Pinnochio": There's not much to mention about this, as we saw Pinnochio becoming a real boy at the end of the first game. Still, the fact of a sleeping world being truly restored in still unaswered. After KH:3D, was Pinnochio's world really restored? They should show us.   
      
    + "Atlantica": The first game showed us a story that could have happened in the animated series of "The Little Mermaid", and KH-II followed more of the first movie's plot. Still, elements from the animated series could be used for more adventures, as well as the movie about "The Origin of the Little Mermaid" and of course, "The Little Mermaid 2: Return to the sea".   
      
    + "Halloween Town": Oficially, this world is already completed, but if they can use it, they could expand it using the plot from the videogame "Oogie's revenge".   
      
    + "Neverland": We have the sequel of "Return to NeverLand" to use, but they could use the movies of Tinker Bell too. They are supposed to happen BEFORE Tinker Bell met Peter Pan, but the stories can still be adapted, somehow.   
      
    + "The Land of Dragons": Obviously, the plot they can still use here would be "Mulan 2". There's no much action in this movie, but it can always be adapted to the world of Kingdom Hearts.   
      
    + "Beast's Castle": KH-II ended with, apparently, the spell broken. However, Sora never met Maurice (Belle's father) or Gaston, who appeared back in KH:UX. So, I believe this have to be solved somehow, because is really sad Gaston was never saw in HD.   
      
    + "The Caribbean": Obviously, this world still have material for a lot of future adventures. They had to skip "Dead's Men Chest" for obvious reasons; otherwise, Sora would have surely helped to save Jack from the Krakken, ruining the next movie. "On Stranger Tides" and "Dead Men Tell No Tales" are great material to appear in the future of Kingdom Hearts.   
      
    + "The Pride Lands": Simba has been along Sora for most of his journeys, so it's only fitting for Sora to return to the Pride Lands at some time. The most logical thing would be using the plot of "Simba's Pride", but considering the great things of the animated series "The Lion Guard", I believe this could work too for Sora. Becoming honorary members of the Lion Guard would fit perfectly to Sora, Donald and Goofy.   
      
    + "Castle of Dreams": The main movie was already used, but the sequel "What If...?" could give us a hint for a chance to use this world again, when Lady Tremaine gets her hands on the Fairy GodMother's wand and turns the clock back. Now that I think of it, if Maleficent learns about this trick, she could use in other worlds too, like Agrabah, Dwarf Woodlands and Enchanted Dominion. An interesting new trick to get more from old stories.   
      
    + "Dwarf Woodlands" and "Enchanted Dominion": What I said about Castle of Dreams.   
      
    + "Deep Space": We only saw the part of the movie from the beginning, before Stitch reached the Earth. So, they have to adapt the rest of the story about Stitch finding his Ohana on Hawaii, alongside Lilo. Also, elements about the animated series and Stitch's cousins could still be used to increase Stitch's role in Kingdom Hearts's universe. I don't think it will be too complicated, after all; Sora has already visited a "modern world" in San Fransokyo.   
      
    + "La Cité des Cloches": We already had the plot of the movie in KH:3D, but I'm not sure if that can be counted, considering this world was asleep when Sora and Riku visited. Maybe making another visit to it will be necessary.   
      
    + "Country of the Musketeers": It doesn't have sense to visit this world again.   
      
    + "Symphony Of Sorcery": Maybe Sora could visit this world again, adapting the musical segments from "Fantasia 2000".   
      
    + "Space Paranoids" and "The Grid": The main plots from both movies were already used, but considering how "virtual reality" is getting an important role in the universe of "Kingdom Hearts", maybe Tron's world could have more importance in the future.   
      
    + "100 Acre Wood": You like it or not, I personally like this world in KH; mainly because it works like a "little paradise" where Sora can momentarily escape from all the darkness he fights and relax. Personally, as long as Christopher Robin doesn't appear, I believe this world will keep appearing.   
      
    + "Toy Box": This world gave us the first time we don't truly follow the plot of a movie, so it would be interesting to see them again in the future. Personally, the whole thing of Verum Rex makes this world a point of interest. And even if Sora never meets Andy face to face, it sure is fun to see Sora in the world of Toy Story. I hope next time, he will meet the rest of the gang, like Jessie, Bullseye, the Potato Heads and Bo Peep.   
      
    + "Monstropolis": The main plot of the movie was already "used" into a new adventure, and I don't see any reason to return to this world. However, since I don't think we have seen the last of Vanitas, I believe he could return to this world again to gain more negative emotions. Not to mention there's something really weird with this word; because it seems it can connect with all the worlds we know. During the scene where Mike and Sully throw Vanitas through several doors, we can recognize other worlds from the game: The frozen forest of Arendelle, the floor of Corona's main plaza, the night's street of San Fransokyo, and what appears to be somewhere in Toy Story's world.   
      
    + "Kingdom of Corona": Rapunzel's role as one of the New Seven Hearts makes logical Sora will have to return to this world at some point. For new adventures, they can use the plot from the animated series, where Rapunzel's hair was restored, but without healing powers.   
      
    + "Arendelle": Just like Rapunzel, Anna and Elsa's role as members of the New Seven Hearts makes necessary for Sora to return here at some point. I guess they could use the plot from the new future movie, "Frozen 2".   
      
    + "San Fransokyo": Finally, the animated series of Big Hero 6 could be used to give us more adventures along this team. Especially after the presence of two Baymaxes in the team broke all the continuity until now.   
      
    Well, what do you think?

    One more thing, they keep calling the era of KH UX as the "Fairytales era"; but how is that different from nowadays? I mean, in BbS, the first trio (Terra, Aqua and Ventus) traveled through the worlds of Cinderella, Aurora and Snow White. In his first journeys, Sora traveled through Agrabah, Wonderland and Best's Castle. And in his last journey, Sora visited Arendelle, Coronaand Olympus. 
    How is this any different from the era of KH: UX? I'll say the "Fairytales era" still continues.

    Ursalink got a reaction from Zach2 in KH-III Re:MIND - Extended/changed scenes?   
    Finally!! I was starting to think nobody was going to comment anything else here. OK, let's continue about with suspections about where we could have more new scenes:  
      
    + Dark World: The scene with Aqua and Ansem the Wise is out of place, since chronologically, it should happen right before the first scene with Riku and Mickey in the Dark World. I believe this part should be extended with something like Riku and Mickey wondering what it could happen to Aqua; possibly all while they prepare their new Keyblades. Something between the first conversation of Aqua and Ansem the Wise, and the appearance of Ansem SOD should be, should also happen.   
      
    + 100 Acre Wood: Not sure. Maybe a bonus scene where Merlin talk with Sora about the progress of Kairi and Axel during their training.   
      
    + Arendelle: Not sure about this one. Maybe one scene to explain how Sora felt Anna's pain when she was hit by Elsa's magic by accident. Another one could be right after Larxene leaves the world saying "We are ready now".   
      
    + Mysterious Tower: Some scene before Sora's team arriving to inform right after Arendelle, when Sora says they are sorry for being late.   
      
    + Keyblade Graveyard: An extention of the scene involving the "Secret of the 4", meaning why the Organization chose Luxord, Larxene, Demyx and Marluxia for their ranks. (Obviously, is because their old lives in KH UX).   
      
    + The Caribbean: No one clear. Maybe an extention of a scene with Luxord? This could give us more hints about his "past live".   
      
    + The Secret Forest: No sure, maybe a scene with Kairi receiving her new clothes from Merlin?  
      
    + Dark World: An extention of the scene of Riku and King Mickey vs the Demon Tower? Maybe show us how they arrived to the Dark World and this fight started.   
      
    + Twilight Town: Something else to gives more information about the mysterius girl that Ansem SOD and Ansem the Wise were talking about. Also, some more hints of Vexen's secret plot to help Sora's team, and probably revive Xion.   
      
    + San Fransokyo: Nothing, except maybe an extention of the scene with Maleficent and Pete meeting Dark Riku.   
      
    + Dark World: A scene showing us how Riku Replica got Riku's old Keyblade and repaired it, and maybe an extention of how Sora saved Aqua in the end.   
      
    + Radiant Garden: An extended conversation between Vexen and Demyx, and something else revealing us more details in the scene with Ansem the Wise's return, and the Replica Demyx brought to the laboratory.   
      
    + Castle Oblivion/Land of Departure: Maybe a scene with Sora's team back to the Mysterious Tower right after rescuing Aqua. Also, and extention of Sora's moment when he awoke Ventus.   
      
    + "Reunions": These scenes are already long, but we could have even longer versions. One of them could be when everyone is together at the Mysterious Tower. In Aqua and Ven's scene, Ven mentioned "People he didn't recognize", which could be the main characters from KH UX. The scene with Maleficent and Pete could give us more hints about where the accursed box really is. Finally, Axel and Saix's scene could give more information about the mysterious girl; or Saix give us a hint about his secret plan to bring back Xion.   
      
    + Keyblade Graveyard: Nothing interesting between their first arrive until the tragic moment. The flashback scene with young Eraqus and Xehanort could be extended, to explain from where came the 7 extra white pieces from the light side.   
      
    + The Final World: Some other star that Sora can talk? His conversation with Namine could be extended, and show us the scene from the KH Concerts where Namine contacted with Terra's Lingering Will. In case the anonimous star that Sora talks is actually Strelitzia, we could get more info from her? Finally, Chirity could make more references about his old owner, Ventus.   
      
    + "The Worlds": Nothing important, really. Except maybe Toy Box's part could give another hint about Verum Rex. And in San Fransokyo, an extention of Young Xehanort's mysterious words.   
      
    Well, this is all for now. I still have to analyse the final battles; and by the look of the trailer, it looks like we will have a lot of them here.

    Ursalink got a reaction from The Transcendent Key in KH-III Re:MIND - Extended/changed scenes?   
    Guys, I think I have a few clues about the changes that Re:MIND could give us in KH-III's story. I believe there are quite a great number of scenes that could be changed or extended. These are some examples:  
      
    + Toy Box: The scene that was apparently cut from the demo years ago, where Rex mentions that Donald and Goofy were "Yozora's super sidekicks, Magia and Aegis". I don't get why they cut this scene, unless it has a bigger importance for the future.   
      
    + Olympus: The last scene, where Saix says "May your heart..."; I believe this scene will be extended to show us the scene of the trailer where he's talking with Luxord. I mean, it's pretty obvious the scene must happen right there.   
      
    + Keyblade Graveyard: We will have a lot of scenes in particular, but I have one in mind. It was said that, when Sora called Xion's name with Roxas' voice, Xion's current heart left Sora's body and entered inside Xion's new Replica body. I believe we will have a scene where we will see this clearly, and an effect where, the moment Xion's heart enter in her new body, she will suffer flashbacks from her "previous lifes". That could explain why she's suddenly suffering a breakdown.   
      
    Do you have any suspiction about where else we could have an extended scene of this story?

    Ursalink got a reaction from Sinre in UPDATED: Tetsuya Nomura states Kingdom Hearts III Re:Mind DLC will have a similar amount of bosses to KH2FM, that he plans to release it as soon as possible, and more   
    So, after reading the news, there are a few things that I want to comment:   
      
    1º) "Reminder, reconfirmation, and heart’s regeneration".   
    It's quite weird to understand what this could mean:  
    - "Reminder": I believe it means for Ventus to REMEMBER his past life in KH-UX.   
    - "Reconfirmation": No idea.   
    - "Heart's regeneration": I'm not sure what this could mean. It could mean Ventus, but also Vanitas? Or maybe even Xion? I'm not sure.   
      
    2º) "The elements shown in the video are from the main story, not related to Limit Cut".   
    For some reason, I'm not surprised. But that would mean the scene between Young Xehanort (no yellow eyes) and the Master of Masters actually happen during the main story? Now, that would be confusing. About the battles controlling different characters, I guess they will be simply "retellings" from different points of view. I mean, Sora entered into those battles when they were already fighting, so now we will see them from the other guys' perspective.   
    + Riku: He started his battle alone against Ansem, Dark Riku and Xigbar; so I guess we will see how the battle started before Sora entered. Then, at the middle of the fight, Sora will join the group. (The scene proved Sora will be Party Member for Riku).   
    + Aqua: Aqua and Ventus started their fight against Vanitas and Terranort by their own, so I guess we will see the start of this battle before Sora joined in. The first fight could be using Aqua, with Ventus as a Party member, then Sora becoming another Party Member. Considering the scene after defeating Vanitas, I don't know if this one will become a different battle where we control Ventus and Sora us the Party Member; while Aqua keeps Terranort aside until they join her to defeat him and free Terra.   
    + Roxas: This one doesn't have sense because it contradicts the original story. Roxas should be fighting alongside Xion and Sora, not Axel. Especially when his Keyblade was (apparently just temporary) destroyed by Xenmas. I suppose this could means the story will be modified and Sora will leave as soon as Kairi is kidnapped.   
      
    3º) "I can’t say much about the Limit Cut boss(es) for now, but it will contain a close amount of bosses like last time (Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix)".  
    That sounds like too many bosses. We should make a recount:  
    - Roxas's battle with Sora at the Station of Awakening became playable, that's one.   
    - The Lingering Will's portal appearing at Disney Castle, that's two.   
    - The Absent Silhouette sidequest, which included all the members Sora fought in the Castle Oblivion during Chain of Memories; but we didn't see them again in KH-II. Those were Vexen, Laxeaus, Zexion, Marluxia and Larxene. 5 more than makes them 7.   
    - The Organization XIII's Replica Data in the Garden of Assemblage, making them 20.   
    - Finally, even if they are not battles as the others, we have the Mushroom XIII. This adds 13 more to the previous 20, makin a total of 33 new battles.   
    - I wonder what kind of story could give more than 33 new battles in the Limit Episode.   
      
    4º) "I want the DLCs to come out quickly".   
    The trailer said "Winter", so that would mean for December as much, surely for December 21st when Winter starts. But I would like to believe maybe we could get it for the end of Fall, November or October; especially is Tetsuya Nomura really want them to come out as soon as possible.

    I know many of you might be tired of hearing the topic about "Marvel in Kingdom Hearts", but after seeing the movie "Avengers: Endgame" (which was, as Stan Lee used to say, "EXCELSIOR!!!"), I couldn't avoid to notice certain "similarities" with the final act of "Kingdom Hearts 3". (For those who haven't seen the movie, maybe you prefer to avoid reading this). Check this out:   
      
    + In both stories, we have time travel involved; and in both cases, the bad guys take advantage of it to reach their final objective. Like Xehanort's counterpart, Thanos travel to the present from the past; although in a different way.   
    + In both stories, one of the goals of the main characters is to bring back "fallen fellows". Sora and the others try to bring back characters Roxas, Ventus, Aqua y Terra; while the Avengers try to bring back half of the erradicated universe.   
    + Both stories turn around powerful artifacts. The Avengers try to recover the Infinity Gauntles and its Gems, while Xehanort's quest is around the X-Blade. In both stories, in the end, a hero use the artifact to put an end to the fight, once and for all.   
    + Both stories have the horrible sacrifice of one a female character. In KH3, Xehanort sacrifies Kairi to get what he wants; similar to how Thanos sacrified Gamora in "Infinity War", and later Black Widow sacrified herself. (Why it had to be the only woman from the original team?).   
    + At the very end of both stories, a hero makes the ultimate sacrifice to save everyone (or almost everyone). In KH3, Sora sacrifies himself to bring Kairi back; in "Endgame", Tony Stark sacrifies himself to put an end to Thanos and his army, once and for all.

    Ursalink got a reaction from The Transcendent Key in MCU in the future of Kingdom Hearts?   
    This is just an idea, but considering some things, I believe there might be a way to include the Marvel Universe inside of Kingdom Hearts. It would be using elements from MCU.   
      
    1º) According to recent revelations through "Spider-Man: Far From Home" trailers, Thanos' snap could be the key for the crossover. It appears Thanos' snap caused a disruption through the universe and individuals from other realities were dragged to the MCU. That could work to explain Sora's presence in the MCU.   
      
    2º) To explain Sora presence through different movies, I guess the Quantum Realm could be used. If the Gummi Ship would be capable of traveling through the Quantum Realm, this could allow Sora to travel through the different eras in MCU and meet several heroes. For example, go to 1942 and meet Captain America in "The First Avenger"; then going forward and meet Captain Marvel in 1995. Of course, Sora could only go forward to avoid the whole "time changes" and stuff.   
      
    3º) Sora would have to avoid certain moments in the MCU to avoid inconcluences. For example, just like they skipped "Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men's Chest" to avoid Sora from interfering in events (surely saving Jack from being devoured by the Kraken), Sora couldn't be in "Infinity War" to avoid Thanos' snap. It would be like Ant-Man escaping the snap in the Quantum Realm.   
      
    4º) Disney's characters in this story should be reduced. I mean, considering Howard the Duck, Sora could have Donald and Goofy with him. Also, since there are some similarities between characters from Disney and Marvel, maybe Sora should rescue those characters from being dragged to the MCU too. For example, both Disney and Marvel have an Hercules. Marvel's Arabian Knight has several similarities with Aladdin. Disney and Marvel have both a character known as Beast. And of course, Big Hero 6 were based on a superhero team of Marvel.

    You know?, I'm thinking about a remake of the "Avengers Assemble" scene where all the heroes gather together, only replacing them with most of Sora's allies through his journeys. And many of them, wearing Keyblades based on their homeworlds. I have some parts in mind:  
      
    1º) The scene of Falcon flying, replaced by Peter Pan.   
      
    2º) The scene with Valkyrie, the surviving Asgardians, Miek, Korg and Scarlet Witch; I'll replace them with Hercules, the Olympians Gods, Auron, Zack* and Aladdin.   
      
    3º) The scene with Giant-Man, Hulk, Iron Patriot and Rocket Raccoon; I'll replace them with Simba (in his giant fire form as a summon), Wreck-It Ralph, Buzz Lightyear and Stitch.   
      
    4º) The scene with all the female heroines; replace them with all Disney Princesses, old and new ones.   
      
    What do you think?
    *EDIT* I just realized another detail. In both stories, the main hero (or heroes) cause a "time travel anomaly" to save people who died or was lost. The Avengers went back to the past to recover the Infinity Stones, undo Thanos' snap and bring back all the missing ones. In KH3, Sora used the Power of Waking to make time go back and save the Seven Guardians who fall at the beginning of the Keyblade Graveyard.

    Ursalink got a reaction from Yessie Maltese in The return of two Characters? (*Possible Spoilers*)   
    There has been some deaths at the end of Kingdom Hearts 3, but there are two particular characters that I believe we haven't seen the last of them at all. Two characters that apparently, nobody has thought about them; but I have my suspictions about their potential return in the future. These characters are:  
      
    1º) RIKU REPLICA: Yes, I know we saw him disappear after freeing the Replica body of his dark self; but maybe we haven't seen "the whole picture". From the beginning, I suspected Riku Replica could be still alive somehow after his ultimate defeat in Castle Oblivion at the hands of the real Riku. Why?, well, because he had an ace under his sleeve. Remember, before his last battle against the real Riku, Riku Replica absorved Zexion into himself; which means he could have adquired Zexion's powers over Illusion. Not to mention he may also have absorved part of Zexion's personality in a try to be his own person again. Well, apparently I was wrong about this; but I was right about the Riku Replica's return. Well, the point is, Riku Replica removed his dark self from the Replica body to save Namine; and then, he dissolved himself into a pilar of Light (himself) and Darkness (his dark self). But when I saw this, I thought about someone else: Ventus. Remember, Ventus was separated into Light (himself) and Darkness (Vanitas); but I believe that when Riku Replica dissolved himself with his dark selve, we saw just the opposite thing. Riku Replica became a Light, dissolved himself with his dark self; and if we add the possibility of still having absorved part of Zexion's essence, this could lead Riku Replica to be "reborn" as an all-new all-different person, not just a Replica of someone else. That way, he could be reunited with his beloved Namine.   
      
    2º) VANITAS: I knew from the very beginning that Vanitas would return. Remember, Light can't exist without Darkness, and it works the other way around. So, as long as Ventus (and probably Sora) is still alive, there's surely no way Vanitas can be completely destroyed. His role is that of a tragic villain, and his obsession to be reunited with Ventus (although with he taking control) was actually just a wish to be whole again. So, I think Vanitas WILL return once again, but I think there's a chance he can be "redeemed"; and for that, we would need ANOTHER character almost forgotten: Data-Sora. You see, Data-Sora lives inside a computer, he's aware of his nature as a digital replica but he doesn't care at all. I believe, at some point, Data-Sora will be able to exist in the real world somehow; as his journey made him evolve into something more that just a bunch of data. And to live in the real world, maybe he will gain a Replica body or something. Well, anyway, Data-Sora is a Light, so he could find his match on Vanitas, a Darkness with Sora's face. So, in order for Vanitas to be stopped once and for all, Data-Sora could merge with Vanitas; turning them into a whole new person, with a chance for a new life. It would be similar to when Xehanort transfered his heart into Terra, but with a better goel in mind.

    Huh, that's an interesting point. I never thought about that before, but you may be on to something there. Now that all the keyblade wielding trios have been reunited (minus Sora, but he won't be down for the count for long) there are already more than seven wielders of light. So I could very well see them intending for this to be relevant in some way. 
    Elrena/Larxene and Lauriam/Marluxia may also join the ranks. I don't know for sure, since Larxene didn't seem interested in repenting for her actions when she faded away, but Marluxia seemed to be admitting that he was feeling some kind of emotion, and I got the distinct sense that he was feeling guilt for his actions. There's also Luxord, who seemed to be somewhat repentant. And we all know that Demyx switched sides with Even. And we can only assume that Demyx and Luxord were keyblade wielders during the age of fairy tales, but who knows for sure at this point?
    Anyways, I like this detail. You very well may be onto something.
