* This troper once wondered why after seeing the scene with Namine shattering Repliku's Memories (and thus his heart) and why she didn't try that with the Organization to escape. Then the troper realized, most Nobodies begin as EmptyShell s before they begin regaining their memories. Even if we take into consideration that [[spoiler:Nobodies can regrow their hearts]], they're still extremely small and thus, barely anything there to manipulate or destroy. Ergo, being a Nobody is basically NoSell ing Namine's ability.

** Actually, no. 358/2 Days takes place before, concurrently with, and after CoM. At first Roxas can't emote because he has no memories with which to base them on (or, going with 3D's 'Nobodies have hearts' thing, he wasn't used to his heart, or whatever.) Sora went through Castle Oblivion around 358/2 Days's midpoint time-wise, as Marluxia, Larxene, Zexion, Lexaeus, and Vexen show up in Days (You get trained by Lexaeus, and Vexen [[spoiler: created Xion]]), before they get sent to Castle Oblivion. After CoM happens, Axel does mention his 'cleanup' there in Days. The first time Roxas and Naminé could ever meet was in the White Room in data-Twilight Town, and even then, Roxas might not even feel anything at all towards her, because he never got Sora's memories (remember, Sora had all his memories once he got unShadowed in 1). Unless it was deep memory of Xion, there is no way Roxas or Naminé could be in love in II's prologue.

* The terms "Heartless" and "Nobody" are figuratively apt names for what these creatures are, but taken literally are the exact opposite. A "Heartless" is a creature of pure evil that devours hearts, and a "Nobody" is a remnant of what a person once was, a soulless being which is occasionally stated to not actually exist. But they're not Heartless as in "lacking a heart", they're creatures with ''only'' a heart. And a Nobody can be read as "no body", but they're only a body.

* More like Fridge Hilarity, but I just noticed: Saïx's weapon is a [[{{BFS}} giant Claymore]] . He is also the [[LuckySeven seventh]] member of the Organization. Now, [[VideoGame/FinalFantasyVII which game is best known for having a protagonist with a ridiculously large sword]]?

** Hold on, if she does know about the command slots, does that mean that she can break the fourth wall? I mean, sure, she wouldn't be be the first Kingdom Hearts character to do so, but still...



* About character themes: Ventus [[spoiler: and Vanitas']] themes are medleys and remixes of Sora's and Roxas' themes, right? However, remember that this game is a ''prequel''. Ventus' theme isn't an expanded remix of Roxas' theme, Roxas' theme ''is'' Ventus' theme, [[RuleOfSymbolism stripped of several of it's instruments and notes.]] Likewise, Ventus' and [[spoiler: Vantias']] themes aren't using riffs from Sora's theme, [[FridgeHorror Sora's theme is the '' union'' of their themes.]] [[OhCrap You know what]] [[SealedEvilInACan this implies]] [[EnemyWithin for Sora, guys.]] Pretty ironic, considering that the part which comes from [[spoiler: Vanitas]] is the ''cheerful'' one in Sora's theme.

* At the end of Chain of Memories, Naminé puts Sora to sleep in a pod that resembles a giant lotus bloom. Traditionally, lotus are associated with the concept of rebirth--meaning that Sora was actually experiencing a Birth by Sleep!

** In Kingdom Hearts 3d, Xemnas reveals that [[spoiler: he was technically lying all along about the whole "nobodies don't have hearts or emotions" thing, wich means that nobodies CAN have hearts and emotions. This means that the quirks and personnalities given to the nobodies in the games and manga are basically foreshadowing this revelation by making them appear more human, thus making ourselves ask: "are these guys really as apathetic and hollow as their reputation makes them out to be?" Seriously, if it wasn't for the black coats, the [[StockSuperpowers stock superpowers]] and you knowing otherwise, you would've definitely mistaken most of them for regular humans.]]

* One of the recurring themes throughout the entire series is that Sora's usage of the PowerOfFriendship creates a bond with others that can be felt in numerous and extreme circumstances. Notably, the fact that even though they'd all forgotten him due to ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories,'' as soon as Sora started waking up numerous friends began remembering him again. Now look at [[BigBad Xehanort,]] who has been going out of his way to plant the seeds of his research into every facet of his plans, to the point of not only GrandTheftMe but [[spoiler: creating numerous vessels out of both willing and unwitting pawns.]] Xehanort isn't just a MagnificentBastard that stays one step ahead of the heroes, he is by all rights and means a ShadowArchetype to Sora; both have great power and potential that can do things no one thought possible, and yet are on opposite sides of the spectrum as Xehanort forcibly embeds himself into other's lives for his own purposes while Sora creates his connections in a friendly and benign manner. While the series mostly emphasizes his [[NotSoDifferent similarities to Riku,]] Xehanort truly evolved into ''Sora's anti-thesis.''

** Fragmentary Passage reveals that while Riku didn't find Aqua, [[spoiler: ''Mickey did'']]. Specifically when he was [[spoiler: closing the Door to Kingdom Hearts]] (at the end of the first game). It's highly possible that [[spoiler: Aqua gave it to Mickey]] who handed it off to Riku to pass on to Kairi.

* A bit of FridgeBrilliance that crosses over with BBS, but this game explains something most chalked up to RuleOfCool: the [[AnimalEaredHeadband animalistic "ears"]] seen on the BBS trio's armor. The helmets from the armor resembling animal heads isn't coincidence - it's something carried down from Daybreak Town and its leaders, even if that world no longer exists. All of the survivors of the Keyblade War were members of the Foretellers' unions, so there's no wonder that the idea of animal masks and powerful warriors remained connected in the minds of the remaining children. Bonus points in that both Terra and Ven's helmet "ears" strongly resemble those seen on Ava's mask - the one who trained the children who would rebuild the world(s).

* There's a new bit of FridgeBrilliance for the Master's Characterization of a future full of futility. His MagicalEye is the Eye of Darkness, seen on several keyblades such as in the keychains of the various Foretellers Keyblades, Xehanort's Keyblade (which is also Luxu's), Vanita's Void Gear (which Terra, Ventus and Aqua can use), Terra's Darkgnaw and Chaos Ripper, Riku's Soul Eater and Way to the Dawn, and finally on the End of Pain Keyblade wielded by Sora and Riku. It's said that the Master can see through the eye and it's how he sees into the future. Consider the factor of each wielder of the Keyblades and their stories. They've all experienced some pretty depressing stuff, and in the case of Xehanort he's caused some terrible things! Perhaps the reason the Master sees things as futile is because most of the people who've had the Eye of Darkness about them tend to have generally depressing lives or endings, and in a sense he might also have a moment where [[MyGodWhatHaveIDone he realizes his order for Luxu to pass down his keyblade through the eras]] would eventually have it land in the hands of [[OmnicidalManiac someone trying to start the Keyblade War]] ForScience

* Here's something I noticed, though it's probably nothing. Sora's hair color in KH1 is a light/normal brown, while in KH2, it seems to be between brown and blonde, before turning dark brown in KH3 (as I've seen so far). We know that in KH1 and 2 Sora's holding [[spoiler: Ventus's]] heart, and in 2 he's also holding [[spoiler: Roxas's]] heart. As it's been shown that hearts affect hair color (one of the telltale signs of a Xehanort vessel is this), could it be that his hair color turns blonde/brown in 2 [[spoiler: BECAUSE he's holding both Ventus's and Roxas's hearts (they're both blonde), and the reason his hair is dark brown in 3 is that they are no longer within his heart?]].
