* RuleOfSymbolism: There's a lot of Taoist symbolism, namely the themes of duality and how nothing can exist without its opposite to give it proper meaning; namely, yin and yang, neither of which is innately evil. This is seen in the series with the balance of light and darkness, the belief that DarkIsNotEvil, it's just misused, and the existences of the Nobodies and Heartless. Furthermore, the three realms of Light, Darkness and Nothingness, tie into the "third" element of yin and yang, wuji, which symbolizes nothingness and limitlessness.

** A lot of Christian symbolism ties together Sora, Xehanort, and Kingdom Hearts. Sora acts as a stand-in for Jesus Christ, TheChosenOne who travels worlds fighting darkness and helping those in need; Xehanort acts as {{Satan}}, a FallenHero who corrupts others to darkness and can possess them to act through them; Kingdom Hearts stands in as Heaven, the realm from which all hearts and life comes that Xehanort is trying to take control of and Sora fights to stop him.
** As a flip of the Christian symbolism applying to Sora, Organization XIII consists of thirteen Nobodies led by Xemnas as a DarkMessiah, and Roxas, the thirteenth member, betrays them. This is really driven home in ''II'' when the other members repeatedly refer to Roxas as a traitor.

** As of ''3D'' and the PS3 era, the series is finally making an effort to avert this at make it easier for new players to catch up. ''3D'' contains plot summaries of the past games with character bios and plot points recapped, and the entire series was ported to PS3, including the ''Final Mix'' versions at last. Thus, all you need is a PS3 to play most of the games, and the two left out (''358/2 Days'' and ''coded'' were given cutscene plot summaries, not full ports) are still on the DS, so once you get a 3DS for ''3D'', you can play those two as well.

* BlondesAreEvil: Naminé, Roxas (arguably), and Ventus [[SubvertedTrope subvert]] it in that they are on the side of good.
%%** Larxene definitely proves this. Vexen and Luxord are also this (though technically nobodies can't be sorted as good or evil due to lacking a sense of self, emotions and ultimately a soul)
