  1. Kingdom Hearts: A World Without Sky Artist(s) commissioned: Ai-noHikari www.deviantart.com/ai-nohikari ozkh www.deviantart.com/ozkh AlpacaCarlesi https://www.deviantart.com/alpacacarlesi Story by: laika6 / laika665 After Sora's disappearance at the end of Kingdom Hearts 3, Kairi (feeling responsible for Sora's fate & driven by her love for him) sets out on a journey to - hopefully - bring him home. The events of this comic occur between the Ending and Secret Ending of Kingdom Hearts 3.

  2. Which member of the Destiny Islands Trio is most likely to survive a zombie apocalypse?
  3. Man... I had totally forgot about this place after almost 8-9 years since I last logged in. I remember it use to be booming with all kinds of posts years ago. I guess it died down a bunch since then. 1.) Introduction and Explanation Anywho, for those who don't know me. I'm the crazy guy that attempted, Raged hard, raged some more, almost lost my sanity, completed, and proved to everyone on gamefaqs over 8-9ish years ago that it's 100% possible, and legit to be able to complete BOTH (Well... Now 3 is added as well, so more than 2)(NAMELY 2.5, and reasons will be listed next) Kingdom Hearts games at Level 1 Proud Mode for KH1.5(which, if you DIDN'T know, because of the way the mechanics work, Proud mode is actually the harder difficulty for a Level 1 run in KH1.5 instead of Critical because you ALWAYS do chip damage in Proud. Critical is actually a little easier because Sora can do more damage in that difficulty) and Critical Mode(2.5 + 3), but not just complete them at Level 1; (that's been done by a handful of people. However, everybody that has completed the Lvl 1 run always labels their run "complete" Yet, they all stopped at SILVER Crown.) But, I decided, and wanted to take it all a step further, and be the standout of them all. As well as debunking the most ridiculous, yet shockingly widespread belief beyond the masses: the before thought "Impossible" Holy Grail of Kingdom Heart challenges: Completing Level 1 critical mode... AS WELL as obtaining 100% completion in the Jiminy Journal, including completion of EVERY Mushroom XIII challenges, and actually having the GOLD Crown! Which was considered literally impossible. (Yeah, I know. Insane, isn't it?) 2.) The False Rumor And The Mission To Prove The World Wrong To actually 100% the Jiminy Journal, and Obtain Gold Crown in 2.5 which involves the Mushroom XIII challenges. Everybody, and their momma back then swore, and pushed the notion of "You can't complete atleast 1 or 2 of the mushroom challenges (most notably, Agrabah mushroom, Twilight Town, and Port Royal mushroom, respectively) without leveling up, it's totally impossible" As well as the old fable of "It's impossible to get Ultima Weapon in 1.5 at Level 1 because you don't get lucky strike abilities to grind synthesis materials without leveling" etc. Nah, it's all do-able. A huge pain in the ass? Yes. Definitely. But, achievable. 3.) Hype Yourself Up/Believe In Your Ability Like myself before attempting, I'm sure most people would just shake their head, and say to themselves "nope. Never. Cant do it" I was that guy. Then one day, I told myself "Hey... they put the option to void any EXP gain.. I'm gonna try it.. Let's see what happens, and how it goes at level 1. I mean, it can't be IMPOSSIBLE; They obviously added it as a feature for a reason." 4.) The Beginning of Doubt Of course, I begin. I start treading along, beginning my journey into my first attempt into a Kingdom Hearts game without leveling up. Everything goes smoothly, up until you start getting demolished left, and right every second, and the bosses annihilate you in a single hit. Making you re-evaluate, and question your ability, and if you can do it. 5.) Opening Your Perception/Total Realization The KH series, AND the series' difficulty as a whole; drastically, and dramatically changed for me once my eyes opened, and I seen the blatant "slap you in the face" obvious, and stopped trying to play Kingdom Hearts like an Action/Adventure RPG like a normal/casual playthrough would basically literally be. Instead, gaining the Square Enix perspective, and knowing their past; made me realize that it's supposed to actually be played like, (and get ready for a mind blown moment) a friggin' Turn Based RPG... Honestly, I think once you guys get this realization, and mindset in your head like I did while you're playing through; every one of you, and I mean EVERYONE of you guys, no matter how "gud" you ARE or AREN'T at the Kingdom Hearts games in a casual, normal playthrough. You can be absolute dirt at the (falsely assumed random, seemingly "unpredictable", ever-constant flow of combat) but start trying to take a slightly different approach/('s) towards the way you actually play games like this, and even open up your mind, and perceive, and acknowledge the gameplay in a different way altogether than what you, and probably, most people normally would have absolutely no idea or even fathom that there's more to, and many more ways to go into a Kingdom Hearts game than the basic, "normal" DmC-esque style combat that we all experience/('d) and most of us, are even conditioned to. 6.) Breaking Old Habits/Adopting New Ones However, once you change the perception/habits you have of the game already, and change the rules ever so slightly, and subtly to merely change towards a playstyle that of the old-school, traditional turn based views, and start planning strategies, and changing your playstyle around a "turn-based rpg mindset" instead of our pre-conditioned, already accustomed, and comfortable free flow combat that most of us are already "comfortable" with or use to. 7.) Acknowledge Game Mechanics/Learn Everything Any of you guys without a doubt in my mind would be able to Level 1 the game as it then becomes almost trivially easy once you decide to perceive KH in just a slightly different way (Turn Based instead of Free Combat) and start to play in an entirely different way accordingly (Having a turn based view/play style really helps not only by helping you learn to better/more accurately time your attacks, guards, dodge rolls, reflects, and etc. But, also makes you a lot more aware, and attentive as you're going to be learning to take it slow, and not rush battles, but to stay on your toes, closely watch for any, even if very subtle visual clues: motions with an enemy's hands, AND their body language. As well as listening for any audio clues or catch phrases; these are everything you are looking for to expect, and anticipate the next move of your opponent. Get a hit in when you can, and defend all the counter attacks that will be delivered back afterwards. Learn the timing to perfect guard; it's going to be the key to your survival, and the timing of each attack you learn never changes. So you don't have to ever expect or assume that a certain attack is ever going to be slower/faster than when previously used. You finally learn the timing for perfect guarding an attack, and you'll always be able to perfect guard it, as it will never be change the rate of speed. 8.) Truth of Developer's 100% Intended Game Design And The Public's Blindness So yes. After stating this, and the way certain mechanics work. Know it or not, even believe it or not. Even though it does EVERYTHING to make you "think" it's an action RPG. Which is semi-true, and fully the case to the masses. It was fully meant, and intended as a Turn Based RPG, and I'm going to open your eyes, and convince you. 9.) How The Kingdom Hearts Series Hides It's True Intended Design, and Disguises Itself As An Action RPG Any casual player gets the action RPG style in a normal playthrough. Just as every first time, 2nd time, etc. player always does. Nothing about the gameplay comes off as "turn based". And is more than often considered the polar opposite of a Turn Based game. Which, was presented this way to appeal to a wider audience such as younger aged, Disney lovers who didn't grow up with RPGs, or just jumped into the game world. As leveling makes it where you literally never have to learn or even use guard, reflect or parry the counters you receive if you really never even wanted to. As taking damage is hardly worrisome, or trivial, and easily tended to with a Cure, and Potions. You can even just carelessly attack, and attack anytime you want. Even if it isn't the best time, and you take a hit. You can still beat the game, and everything in it regardless. - No Turn Based Elements seen/felt whatsoever 10.) Awakening Into Reality/Acknowledging The Hidden Truth: Turn-Based Gameplay In comparison, Level 1: Any hit you take can 1 shot you. If you get caught in a combo attack, you WILL die. There's no possible way to constantly spam attacks, and tank hits. You gotta learn how to properly utilize things that you probably hardly, if ever even used: Guard, Reflect, Dodge Roll, Aerial Recovery, etc. and to learn timing. All this coupled along with the Revenge Counter mechanic (Which, I will explain in more detail below) is how it becomes a Turn Based game; as there is only a certain amount of attacks you can deliver before the enemy counters. - Turn Based RPG 11.) Notice The Signs/Process Everything/Uncover The Veil The first mentioned; is the game probably 90% or more of the masses experience, and perceive. People just don't see the alternative, and it's funny because I just seen a thread on another forum where the OP literally posted "I absolutely love Kingdom Hearts, because it's not just another cliche Turn Based RPG. I despise them." That was almost laughable, and cringe to read, and goes to show just how many people can overlook major things that are hidden in plain sight. However, if one is to attempt a Level 1 run, and play Kingdom Hearts the true way the developers intended; fact is, it's nothing more than a regular Square-Enix FF style "TURN BASED RPG" with complete movement, and control of character at all times. 12.) The Main Mechanics And Physics: The Enemy's "Revenge Counter" Seriously, when you get down into the physics, mechanics, and all the equations that go into every single boss fight, you begin to see it. Just ONE example is this: You're in the middle of a fight, let's say with Data Roxas; just for an example. Soon as the battle begins, and you gain control of Sora, you need to cast a reflect to counter Roxas' Keyblade Spin. After the successful reflect you are granted a small window where you're allowed to attack, and land up to (and let's just say for instance in this example, maybe 3-4 hits) 3-4 hits on Roxas before he is scripted to automatically counter attack. These counter attacks are termed "Revenge Counter" or just simply "RC" abbreviated. if you ever see the term in guides or posts, or in future research, but didn't know what it meant. 13.1) Explaining "Revenge Counters" And "Revenge Values"/Looping Bosses And Minimizing Danger Ah, Revenge Counter. The key to winning, and main mechanic of a level 1 run tbh. Every enemy has always been scripted to counter attack after a few hits, and this was so everybody at level 100 with Sora couldn't just endlessly wail on an opponent non-stop, and make it even easier than what it already was to begin with. Now, once you actually learn about, and study the revenge counter mechanic, and how each enemy works; you actually can use it 100% in your favor in completing, hell, I'd even go so far as to say even almost cheesing a Lvl 1 crit run. As in, learn to read the small signals before attacks. Nothing is unpredictable. There's ALWAYS a signal/warning. Learn how many hits you can throw before they counter attack Sora. 13.2) Deeper Breakdown Of "Revenge" Mechanics/Examples Of "Baiting" Attacks These hits, the attacks, the number, whatever you're most comfortable calling it; for future reference or research of your own are termed "Revenge Values" or simply "RV" if abbreviated. After you learn how many hits you can land (the number of hits it takes to bait an RC is the opponent's RV) learn the timing to guard the counter attack/(s) after, and retaliating in the enemy's small, brief recovery window. All you do is, count your hits, after you land that 4th hit (or whatever number of hits the current boss' Revenge Counter activates) you need to automatically hit guard so you can negate his RC, and guard his other 2-3 hits he dishes out before leaving another open window to land another 3-4 hits on him. It's literally rinse, and repeat: Attack 3-4 times to force or "bait" the enemy to counter attack-> Guard incoming revenge counter attacks from the enemy -> Throw another 3-4 strikes to hit his Revenge Value again to force another auto-counter. And it's just repeat steps over again. Essentially, what you're trying to do is put an enemy into a neverending loop that you can fully predict. You will see evidence of this in every fight in every video I'm going to post below. You pay attention, and you'll notice that I'll always hit an X amount of times (factor of X is the actual RV. Determined differently with each enemy. Could be 6 hits, like Marluxia's RV. Could be only 4 hits like Roxas' RV) but I ALWAYS land no more, and (hopefully) no less than the exact number of attacks needed to bait them into a RC, and guard it. 14.) Always Land The Exact Revenge Values. No More Any attempt to, or if you accidentally deliver an extra attack that is higher than the actual RV, you might as well retry; because you're not going to be guarding that counter, get caught in a combo you can't escape, and face the 1 hit death. Just follow those simple steps, and it then repeats the pattern if you're doing it correctly, and won't be unpredictable. What you're really trying to do is just try to keep everything in a never-ending loop so any unpredictability, and danger is eliminated. 15.) Explanation of "I-Frames" and How To Use Them For An Advantage Also, another biggie is learning I-Frames. Or, "Invincibility Frames" meaning the tiny few frames where Sora is invincible for instance: when you use a Drive Form, there are a few brief seconds of frames where you will not take any damage in the middle of using a form. Or using a skill like Donald's Duck Flare, and using it to your advantage, as you will see me do a bunch against Lingering Will at Level 1 to avoid being skill/attack/item locked, whip locked, and to stay safe during his DM or "Desperation Move" (Every boss has a DM which is expressed by the screen going dark, and the boss does their "finisher" per se.) 16.) The Biggest Slept On/Underestimated Skills In The Game: Reflect/ra/ga And Guard To probably over 90% of the KH community that sleeps on, and probably have never once used the spell Reflect-Reflectga. You have no idea just how busted, how necessary it is, and how brokenly powerful that spell is. Especially in a Level 1 run. It's pretty much an absolute MUST in it to do any real damage at that level. Not only that, but if you're not a master or not use to timing your guard precisely yet, Reflect/ga is an alternative that is safe, and don't need to be facing any particular direction to guard anything. Only downside to spamming reflect constantly instead of mixing up guards, and reflects is that if you don't rely on using guard, and spam reflect instead; you're going to be struggling to keep, and have MP when you want/need it. 17.) Short Summary/Review Of Everything So Far/Convinced Yet? Convinced yet? Literally. Turn-Based RPG. Except think of each of your 3-4 chain attacks as a "turn" and you know that as soon as you land your 4th keyblade hit, your turn is over, and it's automatically going to be the opponent's "turn", and since you're expecting this, and know this, you block perfectly in time with his counter attacks, and learn their pattern. The key is to try to just keep it in a constant, simple, loop-ish kinda fight. Making sure to force the counter attack yourself so you know precisely when to guard; rather than having to randomly guess/pray when their next attack is going to be, and if you're going to be able to read it quick enough. 18.) Opening Up Your Mindset/Perception/Planning Strategies Toward The Hidden Turn-Based Gameplay Is Key This was the biggest, and most obvious "eye-opening" realization that helped me tremendously once I started looking at it as a Turn Based game. Respectfully like most of Square Enix's works prior. Which, I believe if most people started having that mindset of playing it like it's turn-based, just about everyone that truly wanted to would be able to complete the level 1 challenge a lot easier than ever initially thought. Literally every boss has their own respectful number of attacks they can receive before being scripted to auto-counter attack. Don't matter who you're facing. Don't care if it's a regular ol' Heartless, and Nobody, or if it's the friggin' One-Winged Angel, Sephiroth or the "Seemingly impossible, even at Level 100" Lingering Will himself... They all can be read, and baited into an auto-counter. All of them. 19.) Outro/Final Messages/My Video Proof If anyone is interested in watching a few of my Level 1 Crit 2.5 Organization fights for entertainment or maybe to study for your own future level 1 run, I'm going to be posting links to them below. I just wish like hell that I had a good camera back then... I'm so sorry, and apologize from the bottom of my soul about the quality, but... It's literally all I had. My crap phone camera, and setting it up to point directly at my TV while I'm actually playing live in the moment, as you can probably tell by the noise of all the button mashing but, at that time, all I was worried about was having proof so all the board back then stopped saying that I was a liar, and showing that I actually did it... Recorded most of the highlight battles anyway Level 1 Crit Run .vs Sephiroth - https://youtu.be/GtBcldOxgIg Level 1 Crit Run .vs Marluxia - https://youtu.be/mDz2O8CZxFo Level 1 Crit Run .vs Larxene (THIS BITCH RIGHT HERE...) - https://youtu.be/nf684D52Mwc Level 1 Crit Run .vs Axel (w/ Restrictions) - https://youtu.be/vztQYNIeT4U Level 1 Crit Run .vs Lexaeus (No Damage) - https://youtu.be/ad58PWJmt80 Level 1 Crit Run .vs Roxas (w/ Restrictions) - https://youtu.be/TTaMJpxxxJM Level 1 Crit Run .vs Lingering Will + Silver Crown (Evidence of me using I-Frames to my advantage, and how you can utilize it) - https://youtu.be/dTm215sIhmI Obtaining Crown From All Data Battles Lvl 1 - https://youtu.be/IydQ7qub5-w Obtaining The Elusive and "Impossible" Gold Crown Lvl 1 Proof - https://youtu.be/YdbUuJd5JM8 Then the creme de la creme. 100% Jiminy Journal At Level 1 Proof - https://youtu.be/I0d1_Ec_UdY Bonus: My proof of getting Ultima Weapon on Level 1 PROUD Mode (Ultra Difficult) in KH 1.5 (Was hilariously, also considered impossible at first) - https://youtu.be/ye2ZsgQWI_Y 20.) Final Words Of Encouragement/Faith In You All Hope others may find help, and for others, even courage to attempt this challenge. If anyone is interested in trying it, and maybe have questions, I'd be more than happy to help out in any way that I possibly can, and any feedback, comments, questions, and anything is welcome, and wanted. Thanks guys! Like I said earlier, don't ever doubt yourself in anything. If myself, of all people can beat every KH game at Level 1; then I KNOW for a FACT anybody at all can. I promise you. As for the brave souls that will be attempting this seemingly impossible task anytime in the upcoming future, I leave you all with 1 final, and important message: "May Your Heart, Be Your Guiding Key"
  4. Yozora, the mystery man of the fictional “Verum Rex”, holds an appearance similar to Riku's. However, Yozora himself and the Nameless Star both have implied that he was originally a very different person in looks. So, why does Yozora look like Riku in Kingdom Hearts canon? Perhaps Yozora's heart has somehow found refuge in Riku's body? If Yozora is indeed inside Riku's body, then he maybe in control and carrying on Riku's mission. When he first appeared in Kingdom Hearts III, he already had the Riku-like appearance in the promotional material for “Verum Rex”. He has this form again Secret Ending “Yozora”, when he was looking down on Riku. However, this was only a recurring dream Riku had as mentioned in the end of the Limit Cut episode. Finally, before you fight Yozora, he made a claim that the appearance he has was “not what [he] really looks like.” This is backed up by the Nameless Star's claim in her meeting with Sora: “[Yozora's] been changed beyond recognition – his heart replaced with another's.” If Yozora is inside Riku's body, it should not be surprising given previous cases of multiple hearts inside other people. Sora and Xehanort are the most well known in this field, only in different directions: Sora has hearts inside him, while Xehanort put his heart or pieces of said heart inside others. Riku has also had a record of possession and hosting other hearts inside him; from Xehanort's Heartless possession of him in Kingdom Hearts I to Riku's Replica's heart residing with Riku during Kingdom Hearts III. There also is a case of dominance, most cases of hosting don't have outside hearts possessing their hosts, like Sora's hearts. Hostile takeovers, however, tend to take control of the body or at least has some physical indicators. Either way, each method does hold influence to the host's physical or mental traits. Yozora may be a special case as he could be unintentionally in control of Riku's body because he has a stronger heart than the latter. The two may be exchanging influence on the other. While Yozora is the one acting for both of them, Riku could possibly be influencing Yozora's memories. Not much is known to why Yozora wanted to “save Sora”, but it could be related to Riku's goal after Melody of Memories: finding and saving Sora in Unreality/Fiction. Yozora mentioned that he had wondered into the location where he would fight Sora by chance and was eventually told to “save Sora”. While most of his abilities and weapons are his own, the one skill Yozora has that could be from Riku: controlling Sora's Keyblade. In Kingdom Hearts I, Riku took temporary possession of Sora's Kingdom Key at Hollow Bastion. In his own boss battle with Sora, Yozora temporary steals Sora's Keyblade but it is absorbed and added onto his laser sword. We may not know yet what happened to Yozora or whether he and Riku crossed before Yozora fought Sora or not. Due to their similar appearances, the clues to Yozora's current state, and the ability to use Sora's power briefly; it can be implied that they are connected to each other. Finally with the possibilities of heart and body possession, Yozora could be inside Riku's body. Only he is unintentionally the dominant heart. Yozora may ultimately be possessing Riku's body, but he is being influenced by Riku to reach the latter's goal of saving Sora.

  6. Other than the series always thematically showing that love is the ultimate answer and power, even more so than the power of light or darkness, here are some quotes: From Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep: Aqua: "A pure heart filled with light... It's strange, the Master taught me darkness needs to be destroyed. But how, if not with light?" Fairy Godmother: "Oh, my dear, you're too young to know. Experience more things, and you'll find the answer. Just trust in your dreams." (Fairy Godmother implying the only way to defeat darkness other than with light is with love.) From Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep: Yen Sid: "I will tell you what your friend needs right now. It is not your protection. He needs you to believe. You see, Ventus's heart hangs in the balance. It sleeps in the place between light and darkness. From all I can perceive, that means he will be looking for a friend--one who believes in him, to show him the way home. Just as long as you love him...then Ventus will be able to find you when he wakes. He can follow that love back to where he belongs--the realm of light.” (Yen Sid implying the balance between light and darkness is love and that love is the only thing that can lead Ventus' heart home.) From Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories: Riku: "What are you making me choose now?" DiZ: "Between the road to light and the road to darkness." Riku: "Neither suits me. I'm taking the middle road." DiZ: "Do you mean the twilight road to nightfall?" Riku: "No. It's the road to dawn." (Riku not choosing light or darkness, but choosing what he calls "dawn.") From Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance: Riku (to Ansem, Seeker of Darkness and Young Xehanort): "I walk the road to dawn!" Riku (to Ansem, Seeker of Darkness): "Consume the darkness, return it to light.” Young Xehanort (to Riku): "I don't know how you did it, but you really have found a way to trap darkness inside your heart. And a boy who's immune to darkness is of no use to us." (Riku reaffirming that he wields both light and darkness, and that he turns the darkness into light. That is the state he calls "dawn." And Young Xehanort confirming that by walking the road to dawn, Riku has somehow become immune to darkness.) From Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance: Data-Ansem the Wise: "The heart has always been quick to grow. Each exposure to light, to the natural world, to other people, shapes this most malleable part inside of us. Nobodies are not different from us in that manner. Sora was the only one able to return to his human form without destroying his Nobody. That is a statement to the love in his heart for other people, and the bonds that tie them together. Perhaps...he has the power to bring back the hearts and existences of those connected to him—to recreate people we thought were lost to us forever. Our most precious treasures—even an empty puppet—the trees of the forest, and the petals on the wind—there are hearts around us everywhere we look. And it does not take superhuman powers to see them. Surely we remember as children the way our hearts made everything seem so shiny, and perfect. Sora has a heart like that—uncorrupted, willing to see the good before the bad. When he sees the heart in something, it then becomes real. When a connection seems broken, he may have the power to mend it. He has touched countless hearts, he has accepted them, and he has saved them. And some of those hearts have never left him—whether they fell into darkness or were trapped there—whether they sleep in the darkness of Sora's heart, or were welcomed into its warmth—they can be saved. All Sora needs to do is be himself and follow wherever it is that his heart takes him. It is the best and the only way." (Data-Ansem the Wise saying that Sora's uninhibited undying love for people and his willingness to always see the good before the bad in anyone or anything is the ultimate answer that could solve everything and save everyone.) From Kingdom Hearts III: Ventus: "I didn't ask for this. To be sifted apart nice and neat. We should be free to choose. Not just light, not just darkness. We decide what we are." (Ventus implying light and darkness are choices and you can choose to be both or neither.)

  17. Wasn't sure if I had posted this here or not, but I don't believe I have. So here a piece I did of the Destiny Island trio!
  18. I know I'm kinda beating a dead horse with this topic, but I wanted to give my take on it. As many of you know, the world of Arendelle from Disney's Frozen has gotten the title of being the worst world, not only in Kingdom Hearts III, but in the entire franchise in general. In the list of Disney worlds of the series, Arendelle definitely sticks out like a sore thumb, both gameplay and story-wise. The worlds and characters in Kingdom Hearts III all find someway to tie into Sora's character arc and journey. Hercules helping him to find the courage and strength to get back up after a defeat, Woody and Buzz showing him just how strong the power of friendship really is, and even Rapunzel reminding Sora about his first time outside of the Destiny Islands. But with Arendelle, there are really no thematic elements that tie into Sora's arc. Hell, the trio barely interact with any of the characters. And if that wasn't odd enough, none of the main character even serve as your party members! Elsa is understandable, and so is Olaf, but seriously? No Anna and Kristoff? Seriously? And before any of you say that they wouldn't work as party members, let me remind you that Rapunzel and Eugene were your party members in Corona. And I know they both had some sort of weapon (Rapunzel using her hair and Eugene using a frying pan and a barrel), but what about Woody and Buzz. We saw Buzz ground-slam, spin and leg-sweep his enemies, and was packing heat with his lasers, and don't tell me y'all didn't see Woody throwing hands at the Heartless. Even Mike Wazowski, who game-wise and canonically, is the weakest party member, still fought alongside Sulley. The only Frozen character that you actually get as a party member is Marshmallow, that snow monster Elsa made that only had like three scenes in the entire movie (one of which was an after-credits scene). Don't get me wrong, Marshmallow was a nice change of pace and was a good party member, it was kind of disappointing that we didn't get any of main stars as one. Most, if not, all of the blame for this can go to Disney. Tetsuya Nomura stated in a interview that for Kingdom Hearts III, he and his crew were given the most guidelines for the Disney worlds in this game, and Arendelle, without a doubt, was the one with the most. This claim is pretty easy to believe since Frozen is Disney's highest grossing movie, plus the fact that the movie would be getting a sequel just 10 months after KH3's release. So I decided to give my own take on what Arendelle possibly could've been like if Square Enix didn't have to deal with all these guidelines. Storywise, it would start off a little different than before. The trio would land in the middle of the Village, right after Elsa's ice powers had been exposed. Right away, Elsa would run right pass our heroes, with Anna following. The trio decide to follow as well, out of curiosity. Unfortunately, they lose Elsa when she makes it to the lake. Soon after, several Heartless appear and begin attacking the kingdom. As usual, Sora, Donald and Goofy take them out. Sometime later, the trio introduce themselves to Anna, who introduces herself, and Hans. Soon after, Anna announces to the people of Arendelle that she'll be going off to find Elsa and bring her back home, with Sora, Donald and Goofy accompanying her. Before they head off, Hans tells the trio to make sure they keep Anna safe, while the Duke of Weselton (yes, he is appearing in this version of the game) tells them to take out Elsa. Just like in the movie, the Duke believes that Elsa is a threat to everyone because of her ice powers, but here, it's even more apparent since he sees her as even more dangerous because of the Heartless, who he believes are her doing. From here, the story pretty much plays out the plot of the movie. They journey to the North Mountain, they meet Kristoff, Sven and Olaf, and so on and so forth. Also, over the course of their journey, Sora and Anna develop a close friendship with one another due to the former relating to the latter's situation, since Elsa closing herself off reminds him of Riku closing himself off to keep Sora and Kairi safe. But everything changes when they arrive at Elsa's Ice Palace. Before the could reach the doors, Larxene appears. She explains to our heroes that the Organization are interested in Elsa due to her indecisive nature. Just like her, they don't know whether she's good or evil, and if she is evil, she may be of use to them. Sora and Anna both deny this, saying that Elsa would never be evil and would never hurt anyone, especially the latter of them. But Larxene says otherwise as she reveals Elsa and Anna's past and why Anna doesn't remember any good memories with her older sister, much to the princess' shock. Soon after, Larxene uses her magic to create the Labyrinth of Ice, trapping our heroes inside. During their search for a way out, Anna begins to question why her parents would have the trolls erase her memories of all the good times she had with Elsa, even if the fact that Elsa hurt her was on accident. After awhile, they finally make out of the Labyrinth and end up in middle of the Ice Palace, where they find Elsa pondering on the upper floor. Anna tells everyone to wait for her outside while she talks wait Anna. This pretty much plays out the same as it does in the game. Anna and Elsa talk, Elsa actually hurts Anna with a blast of ice, Elsa creates Marshmallow and throws everyone out, Anna throws a snowball at Marshmallow and pisses him off, Sora, Donald and Goofy handled him while the others escape, they fall off the Mountain, they wake up and find Hans carrying Elsa, prompting the trio to following him, and Marshmallow decides to join them. While we're on that, let's talk about Hans real fast. Unlike the game, Hans will actually have a role here, and talk as well. The prince of Southern Isles would've been in cahoots with Larxene the whole time in order to take the throne of Arendelle for himself. Back to our heroes, they would meet up with Kristoff and Sven, who would both be a little startled by Marshmallow at first, but the trio assures the that he's on their side. Suddenly, the blizzard starts brewing up over at the kingdom, prompting the band of six to head over there to see what's going on. Our heroes make it to the Castle and rush inside to find Anna, alongside Olaf. Soon enough, they manage to find Anna, who's slowly freezing to death, while Hans looks at her. The trio are happy to see Hans and tells him to kiss Anna, since Kristoff told them about her frozen heart situation earlier. But the prince reveals his true nature to them and tells them about his and Larxene's plans. He also reveals he that was in fact, the person who was seen carrying Elsa and informs our heroes that she's currently locked up in the dungeon. But before he leaves, he conjured up some Heartless to finish Anna off in her weaken state, and the others as well. Marshmallow, knowing how important Anna is to Elsa, decides to make it his duty to protect her, alongside Olaf and Sven. While they do that, Sora, Donald, Goofy and Kristoff decide to take out the Heartless. After that's over, our heroes take the weaken Anna with them as they rush to the Dungeon. When they get there, they find that Elsa is gone, but there's a huge hole in the wall that leads outside, believing that Elsa must be outside. Our eight heroes rush across the frozen bay to find Elsa, while dealing with the Heartless along the way. Unfortunately, the blast from a Frost Serpent causes our heroes to separate and get lost in the blizzard. Luckily, Anna manages to spot Elsa and Hans, who's telling the former that she's dead. After the revelation, Elsa starts to breakdown and cries. But she as continues to sob, Hans starts slowly pulling out his sword. Anna notices this and begins walking towards them as fast she can. You all know that drill, Anna completely freezes over and shatters Han's sword, the blizzard stops, everyone begins to mourn for Anna's death, and Anna unfreezes thanks to the power of familial love. Shortly after, everyone regroups at a nearby ship. Elsa finally introduces herself to the trio and thanks them, along with Kristoff, Sven, Olaf and Marshmallow, for keeping Anna safe. But this loving reunion is cut short as Hans reveals that he has one more trick up his sleeve, that trick being none other than Sköll. Everyone would run off while the trio stay back to fight. Luckily, Elsa decides to join in, as a sign of gratitude for them protecting her sister, alongside Marshmallow. And with that, the five manage to defeat Sköll and save everyone. After that, Hans gets knocked the f**k out by Anna and arrested for his crimes, Elsa lifts the eternal winter from the kingdom, and also freezes the Duke so he can finally shut the hell up. Arendelle would finally come to an end as Sora, Donald and Goofy bid farewell to their new friends and wish them all a good summer. Elsa tells them they're invited to come to Arendelle anytime they liked, Olaf and Marshmallow show off their little flurries, and even Anna reveals that she's in a relationship with Kristoff now. Now that we got the new story out of the way, let's get to the gameplay itself. The world of Arendelle would be split into three mains sections. We still have the North Mountain and the Labyrinth of Ice, though the latter would be a sub-area for the Ice Palace, which is a main area this time around and can be explored. The Kingdom of Arendelle itself can also be explored as well; from the Castle, to the Village, to the Fjord and Bay. Now that we got that out of the way, let's talk about the section I'm most excited for....party members! This world would offer the most party members, having a total of four. We still have Marshmallow, who serves as your ally for the last half of the world. But for the first half, we have Anna and Kristoff. Their fighting style is similar to that of Woody and Buzz. Anna is more on the agile side, attacking enemies with punches and kicks. She can also throw snowballs at aerial enemies. But just like Ping and teenage Herucles, she's rather clumsy and can stumble alot. Kristoff on the other hand, while not as agile, has higher strength. He attacks enemies with punches like Anna, but mixes it up with tackles and charges. He also uses a grappling hook to attack aerial enemies as well. Their team attack would be called Snowball Slide. The attack has Sora, Anna and Kristoff rolling around on a giant snowball, crushing any enemies in their path. The attack would then finish with the trio jumping off the snowball and Sora striking it with his Keyblade, sending it bouncing all over the place like a pinball and collecting any enemies it runs over. The snowball would be sent flying into the air via snowy ramp, and plummet to the ground, destroying itself and the Heartless along with it. Finally, we have Elsa, who'll serve as a party member for the fight with Sköll. Like Donald, she's a mage character that relies on magic to attack enemies. She able to simply freeze enemies with her ice powers, conjure up barrages of sharp icicles, and cause giant icicles to pop out of the ground. Her team attack would be called Frozen Heart. The attack has her and Sora attacking their enemies with a barrage of Blizzard-based attacks. The attack would finish with the duo using their ice magic to form a giant chandelier made of ice, with a snowflake-like design, and drop it on enemies. As for enemies and bosses, the enemies would stay the same, but the bosses would be different. There are three bosses in total in this world. The first boss is with the wolves that caused Anna, Kristoff and Sven shortly after they met. The second boss would the Frost Serpents, who Sora and company would fight in the Labyrinth of Ice. And finally, we have Sköll. Unlike in KH3 where he was a giant Heartless wolf made out of ice, he would....still be giant Heartless wolf...but made of fire this time. I think I've went on about this for long enough. I'm gonna go, I hoped you all liked my discussion and if you have any ideas on how Arendelle could be fixed, let me know!
