  1. I agree that the box is important and will most likely play a big role in the climax of Kingdom Hearts III or in the events leading up to it. However, we have been given no reason to believe that any Keyblade other than Master Xehanort's Keyblade can see the future. In fact, what has been revealed to us so far through those lines of dialogue that I mentioned in my previous comment seems to suggest that Master Xehanort's Keyblade is the only one that can see the future. I could be wrong, but as of right now, I see no reason to think otherwise. Why would Nomura make us think that only one Keyblade can see the future and that the eye in that Keyblade is the Master of Masters' real eye if neither is true? Is the origin of the "Gazing Eye" that important not only to keep the origin a secret but also to trick us into thinking something about it that isn't true? Again, I could be wrong, but that's how I see things right now.
  2. You may have a point. However, if all of those eyes function the same as the eye in Master Xehanort's Keyblade, why is the eye in Master Xehanort's Keyblade the only one that can see the future? Chirithy said in Back Cover, "The Master of Masters had an eye that gazes into the future." So, that seems to confirm that there is only one eye that can gaze into the future. Then, when the Master of Masters told Luxu that his eye is in Master Xehanort's Keyblade, Luxu reacted by shouting, "Ew!" To which the Master of Masters responded, "Oh, you think that's "gross," do ya?" This seems to imply that it is indeed his real eye that is in Master Xehanort's Keyblade. That being said, you do bring up a good point. If the eye in Master Xehanort's Keyblade is one of the Master of Masters' real eyes, how come the eye appears in other Keyblades? What I think is that the Master of Masters' eye became a symbol, which then began to appear in other Keyblades. In fact, it seems to have already become a symbol at the time of the Foretellers, which is why it appears in the Keychains of each of their Keyblades. The symbol may have even gotten a name since Luxu called it "the Gazing Eye".
  3. You do have a point. However, if it was just an eye that he made, I feel like that would have been made more clear. What would be the point in making us think it was one of his real eyes?
  4. One theory that has been made is that the Master of Masters did what Xehanort has been doing to others and turned Xehanort into a vessel for himself, which would mean that Xehanort is the Master of Masters. I never believed this theory, but I still prepared myself for it to be true because I still thought that it was at least a possibility. However, I recently realized two things that have convinced me that Xehanort couldn't be the Master of Masters. We know that when one person takes over another person's heart, the person whose heart was taken over starts to look more like the person who took over their heart. For example, when Xehanort takes over someone's heart, their eyes turn yellow, their hair turns silver, and their ears become pointy. So, if the Master of Masters took over Xehanort's heart, it would be safe to assume Xehanort did not originally have yellow eyes, silver hair, and pointy ears, but that all of those features are actually features belonging to the Master of Masters. Since we don't know what the Master of Masters looks like, this could be true. However, there is one problem. We found out in Back Cover that the "Gazing Eye" in Master Xehanort's Keyblade, "No Name", is actually the Master of Masters' eye. The eye is blue with a cat-like iris, and if the Master of Masters was telling the truth that it is indeed his eye, then his other eye most likely looks the same. But if that is what his eyes look like, then he couldn't have taken over Xehanort's heart. If he did, wouldn't Xehanort's eyes at least turn blue? Even if the Master of Masters had one blue eye and one yellow eye, wouldn't one of Xehanort's eyes turn yellow and the other eye turn blue? In addition to this, why would the Master of Masters call himself "Xehanort" if that isn't his real name? Well, we don't know for sure what the Master of Masters' real name is, but we are all assuming it is some variation of "superbia". Since all six of his apprentices are named after six of the seven deadly sins, it would be shocking if he wasn't named after the seventh deadly sin. We even see "χ Super" on the black box. Not only does he call himself "Xehanort", but his vessels call themselves "Xehanort" as well. When he took over Terra, he called himself Xehanort. Braig announced that he and the other vessels are turning into Xehanorts. Why would the Master of Masters keep the name Xehanort and not his real name unless he can't use his real name for some reason? These two reasons are why I don't believe that the Master of Masters turned Xehanort into his vessel. However, I'll probably still prepare myself for it to be true. You never know what Nomura has planned. What do you guys think?
  5. I personally don't think that Xehanort is the Master of Masters. Young Xehanort explains in Dream Drop Distance that the whole reason he decides to leave Destiny Islands in the first place is that his destiny was etched in his heart while he was visiting the future. In other words, if it wasn't for his experiences in the future, he might not have had the desire to leave Destiny Islands in the first place, which means that he would never get the desire to start a second Keyblade War. However, if he is the Master of Masters, he wouldn't need his future self to give him a reason to leave Destiny Islands and become the man who wants to start a second Keyblade War. The only thing that I can think of that would explain this is if the Master of Masters got amnesia sometime after he got his new body. Also, when Xehanort says, "You are just one of many roads that I might choose to take. Trust me. I made certain of that," I think that he is referring to his plans to create thirteen versions of himself. Plus, Braig is already becoming a Xehanort by the end of Birth by Sleep. By the end of the game, he already has a yellow eye and pointy ears. With that being said, I still think that you may be right. Xehanort may end up being the Master of Masters. I just personally don't think that it's going to happen.
  6. While I don't think that Sora has that much of a chance of getting in, I think that a lot of people assume too many things about why he probably won't get in. One of the things that I see people assuming the most is that including Sora means that Donald and Goofy (or other Disney characters) would have to appear as well. Why? Just because Sora comes from a game that heavily features Disney characters does not mean that the Disney characters have to appear in the game with him. There are lots of original characters and worlds that you can choose from to appear in the game that aren't Disney related at all. As far as the other "arguments" that were made on that site, most of them were just reasons why they personally don't want Sora to appear. The only actual argument I saw was that Disney owns him, which I don't think is completely true (I have no idea how that whole agreement between Disney and Square-Enix works), but because he comes from a Disney game, it definitely makes it more difficult to make him a fighter in Super Smash Bros. That is really the only reason I can think of for why Sora in Smash probably won't happen, but hey, stranger things have happened, so I guess we will just have to wait and see.
  7. I don't get it either. It's not King Mickey willingly left Aqua there. While fighting the Demon Tide, she disappeared back through the door they entered through, which then vanished. So, even if he wanted to, he had no way to chase after her. True, he could have searched for her after he and Sora locked the Door to Darkness. However, he chose to stick with Riku, and it's a good thing he did because he ended up saving Riku from the darkness many times in Castle Oblivion. Without King Mickey, Riku may have been lost to darkness again. In addition, Master Yen Sid explained that, even if they found a way back into the Realm of Darkness, none of them possessed the necessary means to get Aqua back out safely. Because of that, Master Yen Sid not only forbade King Mickey from telling anyone about what she did but also forbade him from going after her.
  8. I think that Kairi would start with Necho Cat.
  9. I actually made a comment on Riku's death not that long go in response to a video posted by VoltEditzz on the topic. Here is some of what I said: "Along with the official Kingdom Hearts recap videos released by Square-Enix, memorial leaflets were also released, and each of them had a quote connecting to Kingdom Hearts III. One of the three quotes that you could get in the 'Dawn' leaflets said, 'Now our journey ends too, yours and mine...' Since the 'Dawn' recap video told Riku's story from Chain of Memories to the end of 358/2 Days, I think that this quote must relate to Riku somehow, and since it is talking about journeys coming to an end, I'm guessing that Riku may know that he is going to die. However, if Riku is the one talking, who is he talking to? Could Riku be talking to Riku Replica? Will both of them sacrifice themselves for the sake of the World and their friends? Also, if he is saying that he and the unknown person's journeys will end 'too', the 'too' must mean that at least one other person's journey has either already ended or is going to end. I guess there is a possibility that we will see multiple significant characters die by the end of Kingdom Hearts III." As far as Master Yen Sid dying, I agree that he would be the most likely Disney character to die, but I doubt that Disney would allow any Disney character to die who doesn't die in their movies. Yes, Square-Enix tricked us into thinking that Goofy died in Kingdom Hearts II, but he didn't actually die. I think that, if Disney does allow one of their characters to die who doesn't die in their movies, it would be Master Yen Sid, but I think that he is the only one of their characters who they would allow that to happen to.
  10. I have actually thought that Riku is going to die for a long time. I have always thought that someone of importance is going to die, and so I thought to myself, "Whose death would leave the biggest impact, apart from Sora's?" The answer I arrived at was: Riku. Then, the more I thought about it, the more it made sense to me. I think that you really hit all the main points that back this up. Like you, I just don't see where Riku's story can go from here. Recently, there has been one more thing that has convinced me that Riku is going to die. Along with the official Kingdom Hearts recap videos released by Square-Enix, memorial leaflets were also released, and each of them had a quote connecting to Kingdom Hearts III. One of the three quotes that you could get in the "Dawn" leaflets said, "Now our journey ends too, yours and mine..." Since the "Dawn" recap video told Riku's story from Chain of Memories to the end of 358/2 Days, I think that this quote must relate to Riku somehow, and since it is talking about journeys coming to an end, I'm guessing that Riku may know that he is going to die. However, if Riku is the one talking, who is he talking to? Could Riku be talking to Riku Replica? Will both of them sacrifice themselves for the sake of the World and their friends? Also, if he is saying that he and the unknown person's journeys will end "too", the "too" must mean that at least one other person's journey has either already ended or is going to end. I guess there is a possibility that we will see multiple significant characters die by the end of Kingdom Hearts III.
  11. I would have to both agree and disagree with you. Terra-Xehanort is Xehanort in control of Terra, just like how Riku-Ansem was Ansem in control of Riku. So, in a way, Terra-Xehanort is a different person, but in another way, he isn't because Terra is still there. With that being said, once Ansem forced Riku's heart out of his own body and into the Realm of Darkness, he was no longer Riku-Ansem but was now just Ansem. Riku still existed in the Realm of Darkness. He even kept his appearance. He just no longer had a body. So, if Xehanort does the same thing to Terra, or if the way that Terra escapes Xehanort is by abandoning his own body, then I could see both Terra and Terra-Xehanort existing at the same time. Now, in theory, whether Terra and Terra-Xehanort are the same person or not, Terra-Xehanort could still be brought to the future, right? After all, both Master Xehanort and Young Xehanort exist at the same time. Yes, I think that it is possible. However, I think that the whole point of the seekers of darkness who are vessels becoming Xehanort is that they are Xehanort in the present, not in the past. Nomura has hinted that the seekers of darkness who are vessels for Xehanort who have been revealed so far are not from the past but from the present. As far as I can tell, Young Xehanort, Ansem, and Xemnas are the only ones who are from the past. Because of that, if one of them escaped from Xehanort's control, I think that it would seem pointless if Xehanort could just go back in time and bring a version of them from the past who was still under his control. I am not saying that it is impossible. I think that it is possible. I am just saying that I think it is unlikely. I think that Lingering Will will only appear in the final battle if Terra is a seeker of darkness. If Terra escapes from Xehanort's control, I think that he will reunite with Lingering Will and become a complete person again. However, if only his heart escapes from Xehanort, or if Xehanort forces his heart out of his own body, then I think that his heart will enter Lingering Will and claim it as his temporary body until he can reclaim his body from Terra-Xehanort. I agree that Radiant Garden would be a good world for Terra-Xehanort to appear in, but we don't even know if Radiant Garden is going to be a world you can visit. Yes, we saw it in the E3 Showcase trailer during the cutscene when Ienzo was talking with Sora over that communicator, but we saw Radiant Garden in cutscenes in Dream Drop Distance too, and we didn't get to visit it in that game. So, it's possible that Radiant Garden may just be seen in cutscenes once again in Kingdom Hearts III. True. I won't be surprised at all if I am proven to be 100% wrong about everything that I have theorized about for Kingdom Hearts III. No one can understand the mind of Nomura except Nomura himself.
  12. LEGO Batman 2: DC Super Heroes is my favorite Batman game. I have always loved the LEGO games for being fun and faithful to the source material they are based on, and this one is one of my favorites.
  13. I agree, but I also think that Nomura will not have the same character appear twice at all, which means that I don't think that we will see both Terra-Xehanort as a seeker of darkness and Terra as a guardian of light. Either we will see Terra-Xehanort as a seeker of darkness or we will see Terra as a guardian of light. We will not see both (as far as I know). I can be stubborn too. Don't worry. I suppose it's also possible that Young Xehanort appeared in that time only to be a secret boss and that's it. Knowing Nomura, there is probably a bigger reason than that, but I suppose that it doesn't have to be connected to the overall plot in a big way other than to tease the villain of an upcoming game (Dream Drop Distance). After all, it looks like he just fades into existence right before the fight, which might be a sign that he just arrived from the past, and then he fades away right after the fight, which might be a sign that he started traveling further into the future. If this is true, then there is no bigger reason for him to be there other than as a secret boss and to tease the villain of Dream Drop Distance.
  14. The only problem is that Terra-Xehanort is Terra. So far, the only character who we have seen a past version of is Xehanort himself (Young Xehanort). I don't think that we will see any other past versions of characters besides him. Otherwise, all of the seekers of darkness could be made up of just one person. For example, we are not going to see both Braig and Xigbar as members of the seekers of darkness (as far as I know). We are just going to see Braig (or Xigbar, if he is going by that name now). To further back this up, I think that we will not see Riku-Ansem as a seeker of darkness due to a quote that Young Xehanort spoke to Riku in Dream Drop Distance, "We originally had our sights set on you. But, you developed a certain...resistance to darkness. So we did what the Keyblade did, and moved down the list." Young Xehanort then talks about Roxas, saying that he was a worthy candidate. This means that they must have decided to no longer make Riku a seeker of darkness back before Kingdom Hearts II, which means that they must have been planning to make him one up until the end of Chain of Memories when he finally defeated Ansem. However, if they wanted to make him a vessel so badly, why not just travel to a time when he had succumbed to darkness (when he was Riku-Ansem) and make him a vessel then? Well, there was technically already a Xehanort possessing him, Ansem, and he found a way to resist him. If he found a way to resist him then, he probably would have found a way to resist him in the future, even if they took him from a time when he had succumbed to darkness. After taking all of this into consideration, I think that we are left with two options: Either Terra has found a way to escape from Xehanort, which would mean that we won't see Terra-Xehanort as a vessel since, no matter what time they take Terra from, he will still find a way to escape him, or Terra-Xehanort is a seeker of darkness, which would mean that Terra couldn't find a way to escape from Xehanort and is still one of his vessels.
  15. I usually join a new console generation once a game that I really, really want is released for it (such as a new Kingdom Hearts game).
  16. Someone definitely could have explained everything to Young Xehanort, except that the Ansem who visited him was the Ansem from before Kingdom Hearts 1 (at least, I'm pretty sure that's the Ansem who visited him; if I am mistaken, please tell me). That means that Ansem would not have known what the future held yet, and, as far as I know, Ansem was the only one who contacted Young Xehanort before he set off on his mission. This means that, if someone did tell Young Xehanort who to collect and when and where to find them, it would have been sometime during his mission while he was in the middle of searching for his other selves. As far as Terra-Xehanort is concerned, I think that, if Terra-Xehanort is going to be one of the seekers of darkness, he would have been the one that Master Xehanort was talking about in Dream Drop Distance. However, that would mean that Aqua isn't one of the seekers of darkness. The only way that she could be is if she becomes the thirteenth darkness, which would mean that Riku and King Mickey would have to find her later than I am guessing they do. This is all entirely possible, as I am expecting that I could be completely wrong. However, based off of the few out of context cutscenes that we have seen in trailers so far, I am guessing that she is a seeker of darkness and that she is the one Master Xehanort was talking about in Dream Drop Distance, meaning that Terra-Xehanort can't be one of them. However, like I said, it is entirely possible that I am completely wrong.
  17. Maybe Young Xehanort wasn't searching for anyone in particular. Maybe he just traveled to that time to see if there were any Xehanorts there. After all, we were never told that he knew what times to travel to. We were just told that he was given a mission to collect versions of himself from throughout time (this isn't my strongest argument, I know, but I really can't think of anyone that I think he would have taken with him to the future from that time).
  18. I didn't consider that. I think you may have a point. However, I think that if Young Xehanort brought anyone from that time to the future with him, it would be Vanitas. I pretty sure that the reason why Terra-Xehanort ended up at Radiant Garden was that the explosion of light from the shattered χ-Blade sent him there. Also, I think that the reason why he got amnesia is that he turned his Keyblade on himself when Terra began to resist again. Because of this, he almost lost his heart (and if Aqua had not saved him, he probably would have), and his amnesia is a result of that (although Braig suggests that he may have never lost his memories in a flashback that we see at the beginning of Dream Drop Distance, but we don't know how true this is). I still think you have a good point about Young Xehanort's appearance in that game though.
  19. I played Kingdom Hearts II before the rest of the games too. However, I didn't pay attention to the story at all and didn't even watch the cutscenes my first time playing through it because I didn't have a memory card for my PS2 and tried to play as much as I could before having to stop and lose all my progress. Even when I did finally get a memory card, I still skipped all the cutscenes because that was just what I was used to doing and I wanted to get through the stuff I had already played numerous times. I do see your point though. You don't need to play the previous games in order to pick up on the story, but I would say that, if you want to know what's going on, you should play them or at least find out what happened in them. I agree. I don't mean that they need to play all of the games. If they don't want to, that's fine. I'm just saying that their stories are more important than people realize. I would have to agree with you. I don't mind releasing them on two different consoles (such as the PlayStation and Nintendo DS), but they released them on pretty much every console known to man. However, I think that they may have learned their lesson, especially since they released them all on one console now, but I guess we will have to wait and see.
  20. I think that Sora should have a mixture of his most iconic melee attacks and magic attacks for his move set. I also think that his Final Smash should be Trinity Limit. In my opinion, all of Sora's appearances should be options as different costumes and skins (maybe Roxas could even be one of his skins). I would like Riku to be an Assist Trophy. As far as stages go, I would have to go with Destiny Islands with the Destiny Islands theme as the stage music for my first choice, Memory's Skyscraper with "Another Side -Battle Ver.-" as the stage music for my second choice, and the Keyblade Graveyard with "Fate of the Unknown" as the stage music for my third choice.
  21. If there's one thing that irritates me, it's when people think that Kingdom Hearts 1 and 2 are somehow more important than the rest of the games in the series. Even people who realize that every single game in the Kingdom Hearts series has essential information seem to think that all of the non-numbered games are still not as important as the numbered games. So, I decided to give my take on how important all of the KH games are to the overall story and how essential they all are in order to understand what is happening in Kingdom Hearts III. I divided the games into two groups: Games that are extremely important to understanding the overall story and games that are less important. Extremely Important Games 1. Kingdom Hearts 2. Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories 3. Kingdom Hearts II 4. Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 5. Kingdom Hearts [Dream Drop Distance] Less Important Games 1. Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days 2. Kingdom Hearts Re:coded 3. Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]/Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover 4. Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- Many people mistakenly think that Kingdom Hearts II is the sequel to Kingdom Hearts 1. However, Chain of Memories is the sequel to Kingdom Hearts 1. Kingdom Hearts II is the sequel to Chain of Memories. Now, Chain of Memories isn't necessarily needed in order to understand Kingdom Hearts III (other than maybe having to know about Riku Replica, Marluxia, and Larxene), but Kingdom Hearts II is, and if you skip Chain of Memories, you won't know what's going on in Kingdom Hearts II. Birth by Sleep is extremely important because it introduces us to Terra, Aqua, Ventus, Vanitas, and Master Xehanort. All of these characters are extremely important to Kingdom Hearts III. I mean, Master Xehanort is the main antagonist! It also shows us the fates of all of these characters, which we will need to know for Kingdom Hearts III. Not to mention, we find out what Master Xehanort's ultimate goal is in this game: to forge the χ-Blade and start a second Keyblade War (this isn't as important to know ahead of time since we probably will be told this in Kingdom Hearts III, but this is when we are introduced to his goal for the first time). Dream Drop Distance is also extremely important because it literally sets up Kingdom Hearts III. It ties everything from the past games together (or at least it attempts to), informs us of what Master Xehanort's new plan to achieve his ultimate goal is, and leaves us with the heroes preparing for what to do next. The remaining four games (five if you count Back Cover as its own thing) are still important but are less important than the other games since they only have a few things in each of them that are needed to understand the overall story. 358/2 Days is the most important out of all of them because Xion's story is the story of the game, and Xion is who you need to know about for Kingdom Hearts III (assuming she plays an important role in the game, that is). All you need to know about from Re:coded is that there are people tied to Sora who are waiting for him to save them (also that Maleficent and Pete are now after the Book of Prophecies, which you find out in a new cutscene added to Re:coded in KH 2.5, but this probably isn't as important since you will probably be told this in Kingdom Hearts III). It is unclear how much you need to know of Union χ[Cross]/Back Cover, but you definitely don't need to know everything. You at least need to know about the Book of Prophecies, the black box, and what was revealed about Master Xehanort's Keyblade (you may also need to know about the Foretellers since Young Xehanort mentions the "lost masters", who he says started the Keyblade War, to Young Eraqus in one of the first Kingdom Hearts III trailers). I don't know how much from 0.2 you need to know, but I assume that you will at least need to know that Riku and King Mickey are off on a mission to save Aqua from the Realm of Darkness, that Kairi is going to train with Lea, and that Sora, Donald, and Goofy are off to Olympus Coliseum so that Sora can learn from Hercules how to regain the strength that he lost (most of this will probably be told to you in Kingdom Hearts III, so I don't know how much of this you will actually need to know before you play Kingdom Hearts III). So, that's my take on how important all of the games are to the overall story and to Kingdom Hearts III. While it is true that not all of the games hold the same level of importance as others, I think that many of them are more important than people make them out to be, especially Chain of Memories, Birth by Sleep, and Dream Drop Distance.
  22. I voted for Cloud for the sole reason that he already is an opponent in Kingdom Hearts. If Cloud wasn't in Smash Bros, I would say, Mario, just because I would want to see them fight.
  23. I think, in order for a movie to get a TV series, it has to have the potential for infinite possibilities. "The Incredibles" and "The Great Mouse Detective" fit this qualification since, in both shows, the heroes can take on different criminals every single episode with the only limit being the imagination of the show creators. Other movies that I feel fit this qualification are "Peter Pan" (although it technically already has a show: "Jake and the Neverland Pirates", but I'm talking about a show with Peter Pan as the main character), "The Rescuers", "Zootopia", and "Toy Story" (I know that "Buzz Lightyear of Star Command" was a "Toy Story" show, but I'm talking about a show that is like the beginning of "Toy Story 3" in which we see the toys taking on different roles and acting out different stories in different settings depending on how Andy or Bonnie plays with them).
  24. I didn't think of Vanitas! I just assumed that he was one of the twelve darknesses that had already been chosen by the end of Dream Drop Distance. However, since we know that the Vanitas we see appear next to Young Xehanort in La Cite Des Cloches was just an illusion, it would certainly make you wonder why the Vanitas that showed up was just an illusion if he had already returned as one of the seekers of darkness. Vanitas could also be counted as a former darkness. After all, he did have yellow eyes in Birth by Sleep, which could mean that he was already a vessel for Xehanort before he was destroyed by Ventus within his heart. However, this begs the question: if Vanitas was not one of the twelve seekers of darkness present at the end of Dream Drop Distance and is going to be the new thirteenth vessel, who was the twelfth vessel (the one we thought was Vanitas)? We already know who ten of them are (not counting Vanitas): 1. Master Xehanort 2. Young Xehanort 3. Ansem, Seeker of Darkness 4. Xemnas 5. Braig/Xigbar 6. Isa/Saix 7. Luxord 8. Marluxia 9. Larxene 10. Terra/Aqua/Ventus (we do not know for sure which one of them Master Xehanort was referring to at the end of Dream Drop Distance) I had assumed up until now that Vanitas was the eleventh known member in that room, but if he wasn't, then that means we don't know who two of them are. Of the original characters who we know about, I think it is safe to assume that we can exclude all of the other members of the original Organization XIII (including Xion) except for Demyx (since Demyx is the only one whose fate is still unknown). I also think we can exclude Namine since she became a part of Kairi. So, that would leave these characters as possible seekers of darkness: 1. Demyx 2. Riku Replica 3. Ansem the Wise 4. Master Eraqus 5. Lingering Will 6. All of the original characters from Union χ[cross] and Back Cover I think that is safe to assume that none of the original characters from Union χ[cross] and Back Cover will be one of the seekers of darkness for two reasons. First, Young Xehanort said that he was the Xehanort from the most distant past, and since all of the original characters from Union χ[cross] and Back Cover existed way before Young Xehanort, that would seem to imply that none of them could be seekers of darkness. Second, I think that all of the members of the seekers of darkness will be characters that Sora has interacted with throughout his many journeys (except for Vanitas and Master Xehanort), and, since Sora never interacted with any of the original characters from Union χ[cross] and Back Cover, I think that lessens the likelihood that any of them will be seekers of darkness. However, Young Xehanort did mention the "lost masters", who started the Keyblade War, in one of the very first Kingdom Hearts III trailers, so maybe the Foretellers (and maybe some of the other original characters from Union χ[cross] and Back Cover) will play a bigger role in the game than I thought. I also think we can exclude Master Eraqus from this list since Master Xehanort killed him in Birth by Sleep. Even though Master Xehanort hinted that Master Eraqus may have set foot in Terra's heart, which could hint at a possible return for him, I don't think that we will see him return in Kingdom Hearts III since he has never been mentioned among those who need to be saved. I think we can exclude Lingering Will from this list as well since he is a part of Terra, and not a part of Terra in the same way that Roxas is a part of Sora. Lingering Will is literally the lingering will of Terra and nothing more (as far as I can tell). However, from some of the canon dialogue that was spoken at one of the Kingdom Hearts Orchestra performances, it sounds as if Namine has reached out to Lingering Will, which might mean that there is more to Lingering Will than I thought. I think we can exclude Riku Replica from this list as well since I am fairly certain that he is the one we see next to Riku in the Pirates of the Caribbean trailer. That would leave these characters as the two unknown seekers of darkness present at the end of Dream Drop Distance: 1. Demyx 2. Ansem the Wise If Vanitas is the thirteenth vessel, then I think that these two are the most likely options for the eleventh and twelfth vessels. However, as I already said, Lingering Will and the original characters from Union χ[cross] and Back Cover could still be potential candidates, as there may be more to them than I originally thought. However, I still think that Demyx and Ansem the Wise are the most likely candidates. With all of this being said, I think that, while Vanitas could be who Young Xehanort was referring to, he is one of the least likely options, in my opinion, because I personally think it is more likely that he was one of the twelve seekers of darkness present at the end of Dream Drop Distance.
  25. At the end of the Toy Story trailer, Young Xehanort says some interesting things to Sora. This is how their exchange goes: Young Xehanort: "One heart's shadows fill the emptiness of another. See how they bring him to life? Like Heartless and Nobodies, they fit together." Sora: "Yeah, great. Why are you doing this?!" Young Xehanort: "There is a darkness we are missing and must reclaim. The way hearts connect in this world can provide a clue." Now, if Young Xehanort had just said that there was a darkness they were missing, I wouldn't have thought much of what he was saying. After all, we did see that they still need a thirteenth darkness at the end of Dream Drop Distance. However, because he said that the missing darkness must be reclaimed, I am led to think that whoever this darkness is was once a darkness but is one no longer, and the seekers of darkness are on a mission to make this person a darkness once again. Who could this person possibly be? I think that it could be four different people: 1. Sora I think that this is the least likely person who Young Xehanort could be referring to, but he was supposed to be the thirteenth darkness. Maybe the seekers of darkness haven't given up on making him one of them yet. There are few quotes from the seekers of darkness that could be interpreted in a way that backs this up. Xemnas says to Sora in the Orchestra trailer, "How do you expect to bring Roxas back when he should never have existed in the first place? There is only one way to accomplish it...Sora, are you finally going to call upon the darkness?" This could be Xemnas trying to trick Sora into calling upon the darkness so that they could make him a seeker of darkness. Also, Braig/Xigbar says to Sora in the Pirates of the Caribbean trailer, "And at the end, you'll finally realize what destiny has in store for you. In fact, your reward might be right around the corner." This could be Braig/Xigbar talking about how Sora is destined to be a seeker of darkness. However, there are also some other quotes from these same scenes that could be interpreted to prove that they are not trying to make Sora a seeker of darkness. In the E3 Showcase trailer, Xemnas says, "Nothing would please us more than Roxas' return." This could mean that they actually want Roxas as a seeker of darkness and not Sora. Maybe they are telling Sora to call upon the darkness because they think that it is the only way to bring Roxas back. After all, that's how Axel was trying to bring Roxas back in Kingdom Hearts II. Also, Braig/Xigbar says in the E3 Showcase trailer, "Still Sora, that doesn't mean you should change. Accept the power you're given. Find the hearts joined to yours." This could be the destiny that Braig/Xigbar is talking about in the Pirates of the Caribbean trailer. So basically, there is evidence to support both cases. However, I don't think that Sora is the one that Young Xehanort is talking about, mostly because he's the hero of the story, and who will we play as in the final battle if not Sora? Unless this is one of the surprises that Nomura is warning us about. 2. Terra Terra (from within his own heart) hinted that he had a plan to free himself from Xehanort's control in the secret ending of Birth by Sleep, and the fact that Xehanort returned as Master Xehanort and not as Terra-Xehanort, which he should have since Terra-Xehanort was the one who became a Heartless (Ansem, Seeker of Darkness) and a Nobody (Xemnas), could be a hint that Terra did successfully free himself from Xehanort's control. Perhaps Xehanort wants him back. However, there is one thing that makes me doubt that this is the case. At the end of Dream Drop Distance, we see that twelve of the thirteen darknesses have already been chosen, and we know that one of them was Terra, Aqua, or Ventus since Xehanort said that one of the Keyblade wielders King Mickey mentioned, in addition to Sora, belonged to him now (the only other Keyblade wielders King Mickey mentioned were himself, Riku, and Sora). It is possible that Xehanort was referring to Terra, however, in the E3 Showcase trailer, we see Riku and King Mickey return to Mysterious Tower while Sora was still in his Kingdom Hearts II outfit. This seems to imply that this scene happens early on in the game, which means that, if they are returning from their mission to the Realm of Darkness, they already found out by this point in the game that Aqua was a seeker of darkness. And if they found out about Aqua that early in Kingdom Hearts III, then she had to have been the one that Xehanort was referring to, unless Terra freed himself from Xehanort's control and Aqua became a seeker of darkness within the short amount of time between the end of Dream Drop Distance and the beginning of Kingdom Hearts III. Also, if it is true that Terra wasn't the one that Xehanort was referring to in Dream Drop Distance, then this must prove that he had no intention to get Terra back since he was trying to make Sora his thirteenth vessel instead of Terra, unless he is no longer after Sora and is now trying to get Terra back as his thirteenth vessel. 3. Roxas Roxas was part of the original Organization XIII, which would explain why Young Xehanort would count him as a former darkness since the original Organization XIII was supposed to be the seekers of darkness before they were all defeated. This would also explain Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, and Xemnas' interest in bringing Roxas back. Also, maybe that is why Young Xehanort is talking about getting a clue from the way hearts connect in Toy Box. Maybe the seekers of darkness are researching the way hearts connect in Toy Box in order to find a way to bring Roxas back from within Sora's heart. 4. Xion Like Roxas, Xion was technically part of the original Organization XIII and could, therefore, be counted as a former darkness. True, Saix says in 358/2 Days that she was never a real member because there were never more than thirteen chairs in Where Nothing Gathers, but Xion was also considered as a replacement for Roxas. Also, like Roxas, she could be the reason the seekers of darkness are researching the way hearts connect in Toy Box since she is also within Sora's heart. However, I don't think that Xion will end up being the one who Young Xehanort is talking about, especially since everyone forgot about her once she was defeated by Roxas and went back to Sora. However, these are just my thoughts. What do you guys think? Also, are there any other people who Young Xehanort could be referring to who I missed?
