  1. World B. A land torn by war between the gods Cosmos and Chaos. The world has begun to heal from the wounds of thirteen cycles of war, and two new gods have arisen in place of the old. Materia, born from the lingering will of Cosmos. Spiritus, born from Chaos' indomitable spirit. The two vie for control in shaping the reborn world, but the world must be maintained by the memories of warriors from distant lands. And so the two gods shall summon their warriors. But these gods do not understand the delicacies of summoning their warriors, and so the various combatants from distant worlds must forge their own bonds and find allies in a world similar to their own. Will the warriors find their gods and figure out why they've been summoned to this world? Will they survive against the other warriors, much less the Fiends and other enemies born from their memories? ~Johnny, Besaid Island~ The waves crashed against Johnny's face, stirring him from his sleep. He awoke with a start, only to find himself on a tropical beach of some kind. "Jaina?" he called out, but no answer was given him. He rose from the waves and the sand and began to assess his situation. His gear was all there, still functioning. Excalibur still rested within its sheath, a reassuring comfort. Johnny moved towards some of the trees, looking for some kind of food. Something he couldn't shake, though, was the feeling that he'd been here before, somehow. But when? Johnny had never been to a beach of any kind prior to this, so where could he be? ~Jaina, Ultimecia's Castle~ The scavenger had searched the area to a great extent, and had found nothing of use, much less a door of any kind. She sighed, collapsing against a nearby cog that had stopped turning a few minutes ago. "Lovely," she said, tired and in need of a drink. "I die trapped and thirsty in a clock tower." She pulled her guns from their holsters and thought to herself what would happen if she ran out of bullets. No way to fight her way out of her with only a single clip each. Her thoughts wandered to Johnny and Luke and Arlene. Were they here too? Trapped in corridors similar to hers? "I better rest," she said, before sliding off the cog and lying down on the floor. "I'll look again once I can think straight." ~Variuer, Crown City of Insomnia~ The last thing he remembered was the searing heat of the core, a pain he had endured for what seemed to be years. The next, nothing. The dark figure opened his eyes and looked around. He saw himself at the center of a grand structure, with the illusion of a city beyond the immediate walls. Behind him, a tower that reached to the heavens, not unlike the one that Variuer had once claimed as his own. Before the boy trapped him. Variuer's anger surged, energy emanating from his body as he remembered how Jonathan's son had bested him. His anger calmed, as he took stock of this situation. He had arrived in a new world, where neither Jonathan nor his son could stop him. He would be free to do whatever he pleased with this world, and he would not be returned to his infernal prison. Variuer began to walk up the steps to the tower, eager to see the world he was now in.

Will the warriors find their gods and figure out why they've been summoned to this world? Will they survive against the other warriors, much less the Fiends and other enemies born from their memories? RULES! 1 ) I'll allow all Final Fantasy/Kingdom Hearts/Square characters, OC characters and select guest characters (message me and okay it with me first BEFORE YOU POST. If you want a guest character, MAKE SURE (A) IT FITS EITHER THE FINAL FANTASY OR KINGDOM HEARTS THEME i.e. Fire Emblem, Legend of Zelda, OR (B) you can convince me that it'll be an interesting addition to the cast.) 2 ) Normal KH13 RP rules. 3 ) No god modding. Any character can die. 4 ) There will be combat. You will not be able to avoid having your character getting into a fight. 5 ) No killing other RPers characters without permission. 6 ) No controlling other peoples characters without permission. 7 ) Swearing is fine, but in moderation. 8 ) The limit on characters is five. I will allow more if you take control of Dissidia Originals or Materia or Spiritus (I will be choosy for the two gods, mind you). 9 ) Characters from the original Dissidia games (all four games are acceptable territory) can be freely used until claimed. 10 ) I'd like to try to keep this RP as a turn-based one (you post, then wait for everyone else to follow it up before you post again). However, I will waive this if it's a one-on-one deal (two characters shooting the breeze or two characters fighting without anyone else interfering) 11 ) Fiends are creatures from the Final Fantasy games, as well as other enemies from other titles being included. This means Heartless, Nobodies, Unversed, Dream Eaters will be able to appear. Your characters will more than likely battle Fiends. Suggestions on other possible Fiends are welcome. 12 ) Label your posts with character names and where the character is just so we don't have to worry about any sort of confusion. 13 ) Limit Breaks are acceptable in battles, but you cannot use it twice in one battle and can only use the Limit Break again after three pages. 14 ) To show me that you have read the rules, type a superhero's alternate identity below your entry form. SIGN-UP SHEET! Name: (This is a given) Original Appearance: (Where did they first appear (If OC, then put your story's name followed by "OC")) Alignment: (What's your character alignment? How do they fit into their alignment? If you're not sure what this means, please consult this link.) Weapon: (What do they fight with?) Appearance: (If you have a picture, that'd be great) Bio: (Give us an idea of who your character is. What's their backstory?) Special Abilities: (Anything your character can do that we should know about?) Notes: (Anything that doesn't fit above that you think we should know about this character?) Limit Break: (A powerful attack/technique unique to your character used as a finisher or a desperation move!) I'll be posting my characters later.
  3. Hi guys! I'm looking for Sound hit effects from keyblades, mainly from KH2FM, but other games will be welcome as well! Thanks in advance!
  4. How fast can you get through it? Or will you prolong it?
  5. Once again, the director of the canceled Kingdom Hearts series is pitching the idea for a 3rd time. Personally, I would love to see this get through this time, and what better time to pitch this idea than now, especially with Disney + being a thing and the release of Kingdom Hearts 3 on the Horizon, I can see this idea getting through this time. I always say third time's the charm, besides I think that would be the only thing that would make me actually buy Disney + if they were to release there and I think many others would agree. What do you think? Like the idea, or no? How would want the series to be made if it gets through? Here is the original tweet, I do like the fact that he isn't giving up on this idea, it's too perfect to pass on! https://twitter.com/SethKearsley/status/1068576229228404736
  6. Alright so, I think I've solved some of the main mysteries regarding the series around the world of union cross but I'm no expert so if I missed anything or you could add to the discussion that would be great, but I really think I'm on to something here So, what we know so far, the world of Union Cross is a virtual replica of the world of Chi which is the actual story of the events that led to the keyblade war of old then after the world perished and was reborn the the data of what happened was used in creating a virtual copy which would be used to study that history and how to prevent that scenario from happening. After the events of the war take place in Union Cross we start meeting new characters that weren't present in the original Chi, the first one we want to focus on is Ventus, for obvious reasons, we know he comes from a time that's definitely after the keyblade war, after the worlds were reborn and separated so how is he back? another charater we meet is Lauriam the original Marluxia(and just now we were introduced to Erlena who later becomes Larxene) what's important about Lauriam is that he looks noticeably younger than Marluxia (we know people may change a bit when they become nobodies but nothing as drastic as aging 10 years) so I believe Lauriam is the key to connecting Ventus to this era, we have just been looking at it backwards. It is not that Ven traveled back in time, but the world of Union Cross was created much much later, specifically around the Birth By Sleep Era, there is a lot of evidence that leads me to believe this is the case like This would place Lauriam in the correct age range (he was probably born around the same time as Isa & Lea, whose younger selves we met during BBS) Ventus is shown in his BBS clothes except missing one thing, his should pauldron which he uses to summon his armor, but! there is one instance during Birth By Sleep where he was seen wearing no pauldron, during his time training with Master Xehanort to extract his darkness before his heart is fractured and falls in a coma This takes place during a flashback and there is an unespecified amount of time that takes place during the gap between Ventus' heart being fractued and his arrival to the land of departure, it was shown that Xehanort was ready to give up on Ven waking up and took him to destiny islands to die I propose that during that gap Ven was used to experiment and research the new virtual world that was developed, but who created that world? Xehanort in an attempt to unlock the secrets of the past? No, he has never been shown to be know about creating that sort of thing, but we know of another character who has done just that, recreate worlds in the datascape and transport people there without them even knowing it I believe Ansem the Wise created the world of Union Cross, true he has never been shown talking about the keyblade war but I think he is more connected to the past than we know, first of all, he is ansem the WISE, king of radiant garden, so it would make sense for a wise king to know about the events of the past that regular people ignore, even Kairi's grandma knew a bit about how the world ended and was reborn so it is confirmed that knowledge of the old world reached radiant garden at least in some form So, Ansem the Wise managed to get a hold of Ven's body for a while, scanned him and added him to the world, maybe he thought that as a keyblade weilder his heart would help his simulated world be more accurate Here's where I must say I DO NOT CLAIM TO KNOW HOW ANSEM THE WISE GOT A HOLD OF VENTUS, maybe Xehanort, having his own desire to know about the past allowed the experiment to take place and after he Ventus could no longer be useful, that's when he took him to destiny islands (Xehanort would obviously have to hide his identity since when Ansem find the amnesiac Terra-nort and hears his name he does not react to it, and it would make sense, Xehanort wouldn't like others, like Eraqus, discover what he was doing) Earlier I said Ansem the Wise (ATW) may know more about the world before the keyblade war than he lets on and that there is something else that connects him to the past, something that I noticed long ago but couldn't find a solid reason for it to exist in such detail During Kingdom Hearts we not only learn about ATW's knowledge of creating virtual worlds and encoding real world objects into data, we learn that the old mansion in twilight town serves as his hideout/research lab but if we explore the place and pay attention to it's surroundings we can find something peculiar, all around the mansions we see iconography of something very important, we see images and sculptures of unicorns adorning the whole placethe unicorn being the symbol of one of the foretellers in chi/union cross So what if ATW in his research over the years found this information and tried to learn more about this old world (maybe he believed Ira as the Leader would be the one who held the answers so he aligned himself with his union) Skipping over a bit, during the new cutscene added to Re:Coded we see Maleficent talk about the similarities to between the datascape and the tome of prophecies and a few weeks ago we discovered that the Maleficent in UC is not a virtual character but the true maleficent, whose heart traveled back in time after being defeated in KH1 and is trying to change her fate, but instead of traveling to her true past she was (somehow) trapped in a virtual past by a hooded character refering to himself only as "darkness", since they don't want her interfering with the future and the plans they have, this had led many to believe this "darkness" to be Xehanort since he knows about time travel and has big plans in store, but I don't think that's the case, I believe, again this darkness is our man, Ansem the Wise, he also has been conducting research all this time and would want an uncontrolled outside force to interfere with it, and taking care of the easy one, the figure calls himself "Darkness", what other name has Ansem given himself? DiZ: DARKNESS in Zero So Ansem as the administrator of this virtual world would have no problem in controlling anyone inside his world/software this would help his research to continue on. And I believe this research, this knowledge of the past studied to prevent a future disaster is the very same research that has been alluded by him all these games, the very same research that he hid inside Sora while he was asleep, the knowledge to finding yourself or your lost friends in your hour of need Back to Maleficent, we know she traveled back in time and I stated how the world of UC was created around the time of BBS, but we don't really know how long it lasted so it could be that, maleficent traveled back to the time of BBS trying to undo her defeat during that game, but was trapped in a virtual world by Ansem and during the time she spent there the other events of BBS took place and then the betrayl by Xehanort and the other apprentices, when ATW was betrayed and sent to the realm of darkness that's when Maleficent, without Ansem eye on her, was able to escape and return to the real world, to the time of KH2 So in conclusion Ansem the wise wanted to know more about the keyblade war in order to prevent it and protect all worlds, using the knowledge he gathered over the years he created a virtual simulation of that era (probably thanks to Xehanort's own plans) added Ventus in an effort to enhance the world by adding a true keyblade weilder, Lauriam and Erlena were also added (we could think of them as a sort of Beta testers), they might've lost their hearts at the end of the simulation in whatever way that happens, at the same time Maleficent is trapped in the virtual world by Ansem to prevent her from changing history, the simulation continues, Xehanort takes Ventus back to destiny islands and the events of the games take place from BBS to KH2 by this time ATW has been sent to the realm of darkness and returned as DiZ, maleficent escapes the datascape (because UC is just another datascape, that's why the world of the journal in Re:Coded seems familiary to her) and Ansem after experiencing all he has, and gaining all that knowledge over the years, takes his data and places it inside a sleeping Sora, hoping that somehow the experiences of the past help save the future PHEW.... so that's it. I know some parts are out of order but im writting all this from ideas I had on my head and giving it structure as I go on, I hope you found in interesting and bring forth your own ideas about what you think I got right or not so right Thans for reading! May your heart be your guiding key
  7. Here is a brief comparison of the trailers showing how the models in the game look like compared to their movie and how beautiful they are.
  8. Late night thought of what am I going to be playing till KH3 releases so it got me thinking, what is your gaming plans looking like until KH3 day? Mines is currently some BO4/Assassins Creed Odyssey. Probably going to skip RDR2, then get Spyro and apart from that I have no idea! Give me your suggestions and all!
  9. What Summon was planned but wasn't finished for Kingdom Hearts 1? Update: The answer was indeed Bahamut!

    The Feckless Youth

    ---- 10 years ago, before the events of Kingdom Hearts 1, we follow three young warriors: Terra, Ventus, and Aqua. All follow their teachings of their mentor, Eraqus (pronounced AIR-UH-KISS) to become Keyblade Masters. Terra and Aqua take on the Mark of Mastery judged by Eraqus, as well as Master Xehanort. Suddenly, Eraqus learns that Master Xehanort disappears and was informed [by Master Yen Sid] of the rising manifestations of negativity called Unversed. Terra and Aqua were sent on a mission to investigate the mysteries of the Unversed and Master Xehanort's disappearance. Meanwhile, Ven is informed by a mysterious masked boy about Terra's upcoming fate and Ven goes after him before it's too late. All lead to a fate that effects the future events of this series. ---- Before I begin, I will dedicate a drawing on each character. The order I go is Terra, Ventus, and Aqua. From them, will only be judged by character and gameplay. There will be 4 posters of Birth by Sleep. The last one will contain my overall thoughts on the entire game, extra content included. ---- Starting with Terra. He, out of all the characters, is the most controversial, at least with his character. If anything, I hear a lot of people really hate Terra for his....um....naiveness and gullibleness (and his...arrogance? Ignorance? Stubbornness?) to put it lightly. The best example I could think of why people hate is through HMK. Please understand, I do not hate HMK. Heck, I respect his reasons why he doesn't like Terra (not calling you out my dude just don't know anyone else that hates him more than you LOL So I hope you do not mind me using you as a reference). However, personally, I am more midground with him (Terra). While he did make stupid decisions and he was quite a dunce, but he was still a good person through any circumstances. Dare I say, he has a good heart. I will restrain from that to avoid spoilers. ****People compare him to Anakin Skywalker. Both let their heart talk instead of using their head. They have people they truly care for and are willing to fight for them. However, there was one thing Terra had that Anakin didn't: the will to stay a good person and is internally fighting back simply because someone forced upon an unfortunate fate that affects the future events of the entire series. Anakin, on the other hand, made a choice to follow his darkest desires. At a cost, lost his loved ones and his morality.**** Then there is the gameplay. Now THAT I am not a fan of. He was heavy and slow, especially from his "dodging" which are mostly dash sliding. I one time had to go through his gameplay style when fighting some secret bosses. I will tell you right now, if you want a challenge, he is right here. I had to redo SO MANY battles to get it finished. Aqua and Ventus are better candidates for secret bosses because they are faster and their dodges are broken (easily invincible from rapid attacks, which I'll get more into when I finish them). The damage he inflicts on enemies and bosses are somewhat impressive, but it lacks speed and is low on magic. That is just a type of gameplay I am never a fan of. In terms of order in story, I am glad Terra was first. Getting the worst out of the way to get to the best. So, in short, I'm actually tolerant with this character, despite his obvious flaws. I do not hate him as much as HMK, but I can understand why people like HMK do. The gameplay, however, was not that pleasant....at least through bosses honestly. So, for those who want to do a platinum trophy for BbS, good luck. [ARTIST NOTE] I was actually REALLY excited making this, as well as the others coming up this month. I want you all to keep an eye out on each of the characters posters. Each share some elements in common. It will mostly apply on Terra, Ventus, and Aqua's solo posters. I will be making 4 posters on just BbS (there is a fifth, but will be for 0.2 BbS and that will have to wait till January). Until then, keep an eye out! As for this particular poster, like I said, this makes me excited for other posters because of the backgrounds. Seriously y'all, I never thought I would have fun with backgrounds, mostly elemental. Turns out I love the sky. I love sunsets so much guys. I think they are just beautiful and colorful. Doing Terra was kinda easy, but the armor on his arm was tricky (trying to put it in the right position). I didn't plan on adding his Keybalde simply because I feel the wayfinder he's holding feels more relevant and important from the narrative (that and I just wanna get these done LOL). I mentioned there are some elements in common. I won't beat around the bush when I say this. Terra, in Latin, means "Earth". So, simply, I surrounded him with his element. The other will have their own elements. However, there is more to it than that. Keep an eye out with the other posters ^^ [also, apparently as of this post, today is director Tetsuya Nomura's birthday] ??

    Beginning

    I uploaded this to my Twitter and few other social media. But I figured I should upload this here. I am working on a dedication project that's in a way related to a countdown. I will play every playable game (including the DS games + their movie counterparts...Union Cross is an acception because the story is not finished yet LOL) then I will draw them out based on that game and this will be monthly. Example: KH1 in June, Chain of Memories (including reverse/rebirth) in July, KH2 in August, etc etc. Starting with, of course, the beginning of the series, simply just Kingdom Hearts. We all remember: inserting the disc to our PlayStation 2, hearing dearly beloved, being blown away by the opening, going through the tutorial starting with out own choices (I know most of us chose the sword LOL), fighting the once terrifying Darkside, exploring Destiny Islands, hanging out as Sora with Riku and Kairi, fighting heartless, getting a Keybalde, meeting with Donald and Goofy, going to many Disney worlds, meeting a few Final Fantasy characters like Cloud, facing difficult bosses, solving puzzles, the final boss, the ending. All of that for the first time was magical. A mix of Disney with the aesthetics of Final Fantasy was what many of us would never dream of would exist. Here we are now with the many games after KH1 getting us prepared for KH3, a revolution we are ready to face. And here's my review and thoughts overall here (synopsis included): --- Our story begins with Sora, who lives on an island with his best friends Riku and Kairi. They attempt to build a raft to explore outside worlds. One night, the island is attacked by creatures if darkness, called Heartless, the forcibly separated Sora from his friends. Sora stumbles upon another world, with a strange weapon [the Keyblade] aside him. There in the new world, he stumbles upon Donald and Goofy (who are traveling looking for "the key" in hopes to find their missing King). They all travel together to many different worlds while fighting the heartless in hopes to find their friends. --- This is the game that started it all. I first discovered this game at a friend's home in 2004 or 2005. What attracted me was art work of the cover. To think that there is a beautiful art work featuring Donald Duck and Goofy. Another attractive feat is realizing it was a crossover. Since I was a kid, I've always LOVED the idea of crossovers. Discovering this was a whole other level. We were able to burrow it to play at home. I inserted the disc and this song plays at the menu screen https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=8LXTui5vl6Y . Something about it was so indescribable. It was unique, gave me a new feeling which I have never felt before. If that couldn't anymore unique, we have the [opening|https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=29KHZ3jVguk]. This is just the song for now because I want you all to experience it yourselves at your own time (also hoping to avoid spoilers). I STILL listen to this song to this day. The opening was....breath taking. I have never seen anything like it before. Growing up with Disney and this was something even I think Disney wouldn't pull off. Then we have he tutorial section. Had to go through decisions and learning the basics of fighting. I even had to deal with a boss that terrified me the first time fighting it. Then there was Destiny Islands. Seriously y'all, this is an island I want to visit. A place like that looks perfect for exploration and imaginative adventures. A child's dream play ground. It was saddening that I eventually had to leave. However, visiting Traverse Town was like home in a way. Meeting Donald and Goofy was also a highlight, because Disney of course. Traveling to many worlds, the plot thickening, fighting difficult bosses and feel like a champion winning them. The music was also a great feat of the game, the entire series for that matter, thanks to Yoko Shimomura (to which she became my absolute favorite composer of all time This game was unique and strange but it was a good feeling. There was Disney magic, but this game had it's own magic that a mix of Disney and Final Fantasy. It was a truly magical experience I will never forget. Looking at it years later, the fact that it was possible to remaster the game that is over 15 years old, shows that it has aged well. That being said, the gameplay is a mixed bag and it is heavily subjective. Sora did feel a bit clunky. But, I also felt this seemed appropriate for Sora honestly simply because it is the beginning of his massive journey. Of course you'd feel clunky jumping around swinging an oversized key (I'm sure this was not intentional from the developers) LOL. It was alright for me playing the game simply because my nostalgia was stronger than my own critique. There was one thing that bothered me was the editing in transitioning via dialogue. The original had this issue before the final mix. However, I did know that there was one scene when a character made a deal and was offered the thing they were looking for. It took them about 5-6 seconds to respond....in the original it took them 3. Out of all the games, this game had the most awkward editing with dialogue. This game is not perfect and I may be a bit biased because of nostalgia. But, in terms of gaming, his had changed me. When in was a kid, I remember my mother playing a lot of videogames growing up (particularly Ocarina of Time for example). I could never get past after the first round for most of the games. That is until I played Kingdom Hearts. This has me so invested in the story I had to work hard going through his game. It is all thanks to this game I managed to get through Ocarina of Time on my own. So, I gained independence for gaming LOL The titles in the series is a journey in itself to reach to the one game we had waited for for so many years. I hope to entertain you with my thoughts and my artwork for this series. It is thanks to this series that I an doing this. I hope you all enjoy what I offer. [ARTIST NOTE] This was simply fun to do. I had some struggle trying to pose Sora the way I want him to. The shoes were especially difficult (I am not used to drawing huge shoes LOL). The water was my most favorite to do. The shore bit was something I am extremely proud of. Sora from Kingdom Hearts © Square Enix and Disney

    Advise For Improvement

    I am just wondering how I can improve especially with this Halloween drawing of Lea in a Sharpedo costume. Any advice or recommendations for tutorials to see backgrounds like someone's front door and BBS Lea, Sora, Kairi, Riku and Isa?
  16. How will you be buying Kingdom Hearts III? I'll go standard physical myself if my parents don't preorder it for me for Christmas.
  17. Which is your favorite visit to the Olympus world?
  18. (This is a part of my "Explained" series of posts. To view my "Time Travel Explained" post, click here, to view my "Heartless, Nobodies, Unversed, and Dream Eaters Explained" post, click here, to view my "The Realm of Sleep Explained" post, click here, and to view my "The Braig/Xigbar Situation Explained" post, click here.) To start this off, I will first have to explain the differences between all of the "χ" titles of Kingdom Hearts games: Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] was a Japanese-only browser game that is now discontinued. So, in order to experience this title, you can watch all of the story-related cutscenes translated to English in the YouTube playlist here. You can also watch a full English translated playthrough in the YouTube playlist here. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ was the name of an iOS and Android smartphone game before it got rebranded to "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]." Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] is essentially a rebranding of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ. You don't have to get Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, because by getting Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross], you are getting Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, since it's a part of the title. They renamed the app to "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]" to help promote the "season two" of the game, which is titled "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]." Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover is a movie included in the Kingdom Hearts HD II.8 Final Chapter Prologue HD collection for the PlayStation 4. Yes, Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover, and Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] are all different titles. They are not remakes or remasters of each other. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is a sequel to Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]. Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] is a rebranding of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, as well as the name of the "season two" of the game. Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover is a movie that tells some of the story of Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], but through the perspective of different characters. These things makes all of these separate Kingdom Hearts titles. It's sort of difficult to explain how Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is a sequel to the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]without spoiling things, so here's an explanation that's light on spoilers and one that's heavy on spoilers: Spoiler-light explanation: Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is a sequel to the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], because at the end of the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], something happened to the characters which causes them to go through their entire journey again, except without the finale (the Keyblade War). Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is you playing as the character from the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] going through their entire journey again, except without the finale. So, as you can see, Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ sort of acts as a mobile port of the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], as well as a sequel to it. The "season two" of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, called "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]" continues the game from after the characters have completed going through their entire journey a second time. Spoiler-heavy explanation: A part of Ava's role given to her by The Master of Masters is to divide the Dandelions into five different Unions with their own Union leaders, just like how the Foretellers were the Union leaders of five different Unions. The five Dandelion Union Leaders are Ephemer, Skuld, Ventus, Brain, and Strelitzia. Marluxia's original self, Lauriam, has killed Strelitzia, took her copy of the Dandelion Union Leader rule book, and then took her spot among the Dandelion Union Leaders. They are to go into the Unchained realm (the realm of sleep) in order to prepare for the world after and to forget their moments of tragedy (their memories of the Keyblade War). To make this happen, the Chirithys owned by the Dandelions will bring their owners into the Unchained realm (they're Dream Eaters, so they can do this) and they have to lie to the Dandelions and say that the Keyblade War was just a dream and they can't tell them they're in the Unchained realm. This is all to make them forget their moments of tragedy because those memories won't be needed in the world after, according to The Master of Masters. The only people who know about these lies that they have to tell the Dandelions are the Dandelion Union Leaders, Ava, The Master of Masters, and the Chirithys. Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ is a sequel to the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] that takes place in the Unchained realm. During the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], the Dandelions (as well as the soon to be Dandelion Union Leaders) went into the Unchained realm. The Dandelion Union Leaders then left the Unchained realm and came back to the real world after the Keyblade War ended, while the rest of the Dandelions stayed in the Unchained realm. The Player survived the Keyblade War, and Ephemer and Skuld decided to make the Player a late Dandelion. The Player's Chirithy took the Player to the Unchained realm and had them forget what happened. Now, this is when Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ begins. There, in the Unchained realm, the Player and all the Dandelions are repeating their entire journey from the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] over again in order to have them forget the Keyblade War and make it seem like it was just a dream. They're within their own dreams, just like how Sora was within his own dreams near the end of Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. Now, in the "season two" of Kingdom Hearts Unchained χ, called "Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross]," the Player and the Dandelions have finally caught up with and gone through their entire journey from the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] over again (except without the Keyblade War). The Player has begun getting flashbacks from the Keyblade War. They think it's just from a dream though. The group of Dandelion Union Leaders go from the Keyblade Graveyard back to Daybreak Town and decide to celebrate by providing new Spirits for the Dandelions. Ephemer goes with Skuld and Ventus to collect the necessary ingredients, while Brain and Lauriam stay behind in order to prepare. Soon after, a Chirithy approaches the Player and, using some of Player's Chirithy's fur, creates a "pet" Spirit for them. In the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], the Foretellers used the Book of Prophecies to conjure up illusions/projections of worlds of the future. These are the Disney worlds in the game. In these projected worlds, the Keyblade wielders are to destroy Heartless (which are also conjured up projections from the future) in order to gather Lux (light) from the future. In the original Kingdom Hearts χ[chi], all of the Disney worlds that the characters go to, all of the Disney characters that the characters meet, and all of the Heartless (except for Darklings) are just illusions/projections conjured up by the Book of Prophecies. Since The Master of Masters and Luxu both disappeared and the Foretellers (presumably) died in the Keyblade War, there is no one to conjure up the illusory worlds of the future any more. So, The Master of Masters created data versions of the worlds in advance. The worlds that the Dandelions are going to in the Unchained realm are these data worlds. Maleficent was stabbed by the Keyblade of Heart by Riku in the first Kingdom Hearts. This gave her the ability to time travel. So, she time traveled to the past in order to try and rewrite history and make it so she wasn't defeated. She time traveled to after the Keyblade War and ended up in the data version of Enchanted Dominion. A data version of herself exists there, so she was able to time travel there. She was unaware that it was a data world until a shadowy figure calling himself "Darkness" pointed it out to her. He explained that The Master of Masters knew she was going to do this, and prepared the data version of Enchanted Dominion to trap her in in advance, so that she would not be in the real world. He does not want her in the real world since she possesses memories and knowledge of the future. "Darkness" then explains to her that she needs to return to her own time. If you would like to know how time travel works and how Maleficent was able to time travel since she was stabbed by a Keyblade, you can check out my "Time Travel Explained" post here. And if you would like to know more about the Unchained realm (the realm of sleep), you can check out my "The Realm of Sleep Explained" post here. Here's a simple step-by-step of what you should do to experience the entire "χ" story: 1.) Watch the story-related cutscenes for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi] translated to English. You can watch them in the YouTube playlist here. You can also watch a full English translated playthrough in the YouTube playlist here. 2.) Watch the Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover movie that's included in Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. If you've already seen it, then watch it again since it will now make a lot more sense after watching the story-related cutscenes for Kingdom Hearts χ[chi]. 3.) Watch the first cutscene in Kingdom Hearts 0.2 Birth by Sleep -A fragmentary passage- Kingdom Hearts HD 2.8 Final Chapter Prologue. This cutscene with Luxu takes place after Kingdom Hearts χ Back Cover. If you've already seen it, then take a look at it again since it will make a lot more sense now. 4.) Download Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] for iOS or Android. 5.) Play Kingdom Hearts Union χ[Cross] for iOS or Android. If you don't want to play it, then you can just watch the cutscenes. It's very repetitive and long, so I understand if you don't want to play it, but I recommend giving it a shot. If you don't like it and decide to just watch the story-related cutscenes, then you can watch them in the YouTube playlist here. The game is still ongoing, so I will update that playlist whenever new story-related cutscenes come out. And that's it!

  20. Hey everyone. I am making a very dumb Youtube Poop in the style of Kingdom Hearts Crazy Files.With my own flavor of course and maybe remaking some classic Crazy File clips in HD as a tribute. So I was thinking about uploading them to Youtube once they are finished. Anyone interested? P.S. I wanted to upload a sample, but it says I am not permitted for some reason.
