My overarching theory is this. Tidus disappears in FFX, after killing jecht/sin. We know in FFX that whoever defeats sin becomes sin. Yuna was SUPPOSED TO. But Tidus changed Fate. I think Tidus is the one dreaming the realm that sora is currently existing in. Here’s why.
Final fantasy X, X2, 13, and 7 are all along the same timeline. The Jenova project of FF7 was to make a hybrid of a human and raw energy. They found out that was the life of the planet. The light.
Kingdom hearts bad guys have consistently tried to create a being, capable of copying the keyblade. Every time failed, and even Xion couldn’t wield its true power without shattering.
What if Yozora is that project completed somehow? In KH3 remind he scans the keyblade. And he knows how to use it, very well. He could be the replica project come to fruition somehow.
Could the dandelions have been sent to quadratum for yozora to copy? It would make sense as to why he’s so keen with a keyblade
If Tidus is the dream, and all of KH is in this, quadratum could be another dream, and they could be touching via sora being in the realm of sleep currently.
If Tidus is actually the dream, this is what’s also true. The overwhelming karma imbalance in Verum Rex, the inability to vanquish the heartless, even time travel, as Tidus traveled 1000 years into the future. It would all be cannon. Along with every FF character in KH to date.
In application of this theory to FF and KH, EVERYTHING remains cannon. And it doesn’t influence the story at all.
Everywhere you apply the theory that Yozora is the ultimate Replica program completed, you realize this.
Xehanort, MoM, Tidus, and the Shinra corp would all have the same motive. To create a being strong enough to capture the keyblade’s light. They would still always need sora to go through how his events have unfolded, and yozora would have motive for wanting to stop sora too
Noctis, would still be the FALSE KING. Because although he can copy every weapon in his world, YOZORA would be the true king, able to copy any weapon in any dimension.
The arena in verum rex is offshore of a city. The buildings around it are the same shape, size and look like storage containers. Like In FF 7. Maybe, verum rex is attached to the data world somehow, and MoM made a replica of the system from FF7, but because it’s a videogame, it would allow for unlimited use of energy. But it also allows for what? BUGS. The mechs are eerily bug shaped. in this arena too, I think the gold mech we fight, is actually yozora. He might think “beating sora” to gain the power is all a game because KH might be a game in his world. But it could be Sora’s reality that’s in jeopardy. We’ve seen this format in Re:Coded.
What if baby Xehanort was copied?
Xehanort decoded is heart, and Nox. A nox is a goddess of the night. But in GREEK. Not Latin. Quadratum would have an entirely different “Origin” as we all know. Heart of the night could mean that yozora is the alternate timeline of XEHANORT in the data realm. It would account for his identity problem, along with every player being in his heart from KHUX. It would explain his ability to use the keyblade instantly after copying it. it explains his motive to stop sora. That could be why we also plan through TWO versions of the ending
If baby Xehanort was also copied, and that’s who resides inside yozora’s body, it accounts for his red and blue eye. He would never have needed to choose between light and darkness because they don’t exist there. But I think he will become the ultimate villain. A Gilgamesh. Which would explain VERSUS 13’s idea
I just don’t think remind was either or. I think it was Both and
It seems like this is basically what phase 2 is comprising of. Shaping out Sora’s scenario. But I think Riku is going to be in trouble and that’s what Sora’s oath will change to. Saving Riku somehow, even though Riku went to save sora.
I think yozora and sora met, because yozora was dreaming in his world.
Maybe— Yozora sets his sights to save nameless star, which I have a sneaking suspicion has connective ties with kairi, so they all race to kairi but all for different motives. Sora’s oath to return could still be to kairi, but a new oath in is heart could be forming. One larger than them all. I think yozora is going to choose the darkness and become what sephiroth is to cloud. What Seymour was to Tidus, etc. the parallels are wild. Even Final Fantasy X has 7 characters of light in the party.
