* It's been noted that Larxene seems more like just an AlphaBitch to the point of being LaughablyEvil when around her fellow Organization members, but suddenly becomes [[KickTheDog extra-evil]] up against Sora, Donald and Goofy. Then you realize that Larxene is a sadist who gets off on inflicting pain on others' ''feelings''...and the rest of the Organization don't have true feelings, just like her, so she has no reason to go as far in being cruel toward them. Even in [=RE:CoM=], a moment is added when after taunting Vexen and causing him to shout at her, Larxene looks disappointed and says "Predictable response. Forget it. Men with hearts are so boring".

** Also note that "Lord of the Castle" (the re-recorded song) is the only one that wasn't in the GBA version of the game.

* For the ''[[CompilationRerelease I.5 HD ReMIX]]'', the fandom rejoiced when ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'' received re-recorded tracks - and raged upon learning that ''Re:Chain of Memories'' not only ''didn't'' receive re-recorded tracks, but it didn't use ''the already re-recorded tracks for I'' - instead, the HD version of ''Re:Chain'' uses the PS2-generated songs from the ''original release''. Then you remember: this is not ''actually'' one of Sora's adventures, it's an imitation of his previous adventure. Castle Oblivion just couldn't get the audio right. The exception is the battle with Marluxia: the... last? phase of the fight ''does'' receive a re-recording, signifying that he's breaking free of the imitation and finishing his adventure ''properly''.

** However, it does seem to be a case of {{Flanderization}}...which, of course, also makes total sense given that Naminé was made to re-arrange his memories so that this would be the case. It's the same with Sora...Kairi is deemed the most important person to him, but Naminé starts to exceed that as the ''only'' important person to him the more fake memories based on his feelings for Kairi that are planted in his head. Both Sora and the Riku Replica are flanderized so that they are total puppets to Naminé...and thus, to the Organization.

* Sora starts exibiting some OOC behavior towards his friends later in the game. This could easily be chalked up to Namine's manipulations. Once Roxas enters the picture, it sheds a new light on things. Sora's been a heartless since he fought Ansem in Hollow Bastion. There was only so much Kairi's light could do to protect him.

*** These are all great theories, except there's one problem here. Mickey is unavailable during this time due to having to use up a good amount of his power to save Riku from Ansem; which left him cut off from Riku for awhile since Mickey was still in the Realm of Darkness at the time and not physically there to begin with. He couldn't have helped Riku out during this time even if he wanted to.

* There are a lot of subtleties to the way cards are used by the various characters in this game.
** Notice how only humanoid bosses use red and blue cards instead of the black cards used by the Heartless and (most) Disney bosses.
** In addition, the only characters who use cards that ''don't just represent themselves'' is Sora (and Riku, but only with enemy cards). What's Sora's special power, again? Linking his heart with others.
** Riku's fixed decks make him fight more like a boss would in Sora's story. He also does not have magic cards because he [[HoldingBackThePhlebotinum hasn't fully accepted the darkness enough]] to use it outside of Dark Mode. Riku Replica, who is in permanent Dark Mode, doesn't have this problem and can use darkness-as-magic freely, which also [[ThatOneAttack (in)]]conveniently [[TheComputerIsACheatingBastard lets him use Dark Aura with lower-level cards]].

* In the ''Re:chain'' remake, several of Sora's Sleights were changed, giving him attacks like Magnet Spiral, Firaga Burst, and Freeze. Not to mention his numerous "Raid" variants, Holy, and Tornado. Now go play ''Birth By Sleep''. [[spoiler:Those are ''Ven's'' attacks -- Sora's heart is reacting to Ven's sleeping body inside Castle Oblivion, and the deeper he goes, the more of Ven's abilities he gains access to]]. This is also why Sora loses those attacks come ''Kingdom Hearts II''.

* In ''Kingdom Hearts I'', the Powerwild and Bouncywild Heartless were found in the Deep Jungle world. Because the rights to Tarzan were lost before Chain of Memories, those Heartless are now found in Olympus Coliseum; the only world not to have any world-exclusive Heartless in KHI.

* The Riku Replica's bizarre {{Jerkass}} behavior and desire to fight Sora for what appears to be no good reason should send up red flags that he's a fake, but doesn't because ''this is exactly how Riku acts throughout the entire first game''. The subject of his anger at Sora has simply been changed from Kairi to Naminé.
