* Why do Hikari translated into Simple and Clean? The lyrics are complete opposite. Are they just trying to make it into pop song for the western audience?

** Hikari and Simple and Clean are indeed two entirely different songs set to the same piece of music. Each was written with their respective audience in mind. Utada Hikaru is a trained and experienced songwriter in both languages, and thus knows that a song written for one language will never sound as good when translated into another.

** Donald's reason for not taking Riku is that there would have been no purpose for him going. Sora's the Keybearer, so he has to seal Keyholes in other worlds, whereas Donald and Goofy have to both help him and try to find where Mickey went. As for Sora's nonchalant reaction to Riku's leaving: he just has full confidence that Riku can handle himself. He's always considered Riku to be a worthy rival, and the fact he's already proven to be able to destroy Heartless shows he could presumably stay in Traverse Town relatively safely. Taking Riku, to him, would probably just be putting his friend in danger considering they're facing both Heartless and the Disney villains who control them.

** Their world, Disney Castle, didn't get destroyed. They just wanted to follow in their Unca Scrooge's footsteps about selling expensive stuff to people in other worlds. They at least picked a world where the inhabitants were aware there were other worlds due to it being essentially a giant interstellar refugee camp.

** Maybe normally it isn't allowed. But with worlds being destroyed left and right, and the princesses being kidnapped - it's a little more acceptable. And aren't the Heartless everyone's problem? So it's not like they're travelling to Atlantica to solve an Atlantica-exclusive problem.


Added DiffLines:

** Maybe Jafar didn't know about Kingdom Hearts. Hell, maybe Maleficent didn't even know. Their mission was to round up the princesses to open this door to the darkness - but maybe that's all they knew. And if it's like how it is was in the film, Jafar made a rash wish and didn't think it through. He wished for the power of the genie and forgot that genies are bound to serve a master.

** And really Ariel never really feels like a princess in the same way the others do. She's in the Disney Princess line but like Mulan she doesn't really fit in with their personalities. Ariel is the most ostensibly flawed of the princesses and there's none of that "I see the good in everyone" aspect to her character - Snow White, Cinderella and Aurora are all TheIngenue, Alice is merely an innocently curious child (and Kairi is quite similar), and Belle and Jasmine both are kind-hearted enough to fall for their respective men for their inner beauty rather than superficial stuff (the Beast's appearance and Aladdin's poverty). So they might have felt weird including her as this paragon of virtue and kindness, when she's more like Esmerelda and Mulan in terms of personality.

* Why is the Keyblade able to cut through buildings in ''normal gameplay'', yet unable to cut through a measly Shadow in less than three strikes? Personally, my friends and I decided that it was [[SchrodingersCat Schrodinger's]] sword -- It exists as both an impossibly sharp blade and a giant key at the same time, and it's state can only be defined when it is in the action of cutting something. Or ineffectually bludgeoning something, as the case often is.

* So, the Trickmaster, the heartless that Sora and Co. Fight in wonderland is supposedly medium sized, right? So why didn't Sora and Co. simply drink the [[BuffySpeak/growing water]] to resize?

* Keyblade. That name is so uninspired. When I first saw a quick preview of Kingdom Hearts in a magazine I thought, "Hey that kid's weapon looks like a key," and it took me literally seconds to come up with the name Keyblade. This is a company that routinely comes up with very cool-sounding names, so it [[{{Headscratchers}} Just Bugs Me]] that the main weapon name is so boring.

** Honestly, something tells me that not even Normura himself really knows the answer to that. The answer posted above does make enough sense though, especially when you consider than Ansem SOD is also a sentient Heartless. If this never ends up being confirmed though, the only other explanation is that Kairi's light granted Sora a new body and soul out of thin air. Which... doesn't make sense, I know.

*In the Monstro world, there was a moment where Pinocchio told Jiminy that he wasn't gonna make it and his nose grew longer. His nose is supposed to grow longer everytime he lies, but he thought he wasn't gonna make it so... does that really count as lying? Should it have counted?
