* SoundtrackDissonance: The opening cinematic of the game uses the shortened PLANITb remix of Hikari/Simple And Clean (just like [[VideoGame/KingodmHeartsI the first game]], a sad and emotional track, which plays over some pretty horrific events that take place during the game, including Master Xehanort crushing and freezing Ven's helmet.

* MakesJustAsMuchSenseInContext: The game's very odd title [[TitleDrop is spoken by]] [[spoiler: Ansem the Wise]] in the "true" ending, but the line itself is still [[MindScrew quite difficult to narratively interpret]]:
-->"So many are still waiting for their new beginning, their [[TitleDrop birth by sleep]]. Even me...and even you.

* KnightOfCerebus: Master Xehanort.

* KnightOfCerebus: Master Xehanort. Past major Kingdom Hearts villains tended to be portrayed as formerly benevolent people who became villainous as a result of accidentally delving into darkness and/or wanting a heart, only to be defeated by the hero in the end. While Master Xehanort is ''also'' a formerly benevolent character who became corrupted by darkness and ''still'' threatens a global apocalypse like past villains, the sheer degree of personal cruelty he inflicts on the heroes goes ''way beyond'' characters like Ansem or Xemnas, [[FalseFriend while pretending to have their best interests at heart only to betray them]], culminating in[[spoiler: subjecting them to [[AndIMustScream horrific fates]] and essentially [[KarmaHoudini getting away with it all]]]].

* GenreBlind: Just about ''everyone'' in this game. Come on... Xehanort is ''obviously'' evil. Yet everyone's trusting him, even Master Eraqus, who [[spoiler:even TRIED to kill him in the past but failed]]. More to the point Master Eraqus knew [[spoiler:that Xehanort had used the darkness to grow stronger than Eraqus and wanted to recreate the Keyblade War and yet Eraqus still never saw fit to warn ''anyone'' about any of this leading directly to a [[PoorCommunicationKills situation that could have been avoided]] if he had just bothered to give some information.]]

* GenreBlind: Just about ''everyone'' in this game. Come on... on: Xehanort is ''obviously'' evil. Yet everyone's a textbook example of ObviouslyEvil... and yet everyone still keeps trusting him, even Master him until it's too late. For example: Eraqus, who [[spoiler:even TRIED specifically his scars? Given to kill him in the by [[spoiler:Xehanort during a past but failed]]. More argument where he flat-out revealed his desire to the point Master Eraqus knew [[spoiler:that Xehanort had used the darkness to grow stronger than Eraqus and wanted to recreate the create his very own Keyblade War and War]]. And yet Eraqus still not only invites him to overlook Terra and Aqua's Mark of Mastery exam, but also unhesitatingly invokes YouAreNotReady upon Terra for demonstrating a never-before-seen bout of noticeably uncontrollable CastingAShadow power... and never saw fit to warn ''anyone'' about any of this leading directly to even remotely suspects Xehanort as a [[PoorCommunicationKills situation that could have been avoided]] if he had just bothered to give some information.]]potential saboteur.

** Alleviated slightly by the fact that [[spoiler:Master Xehanort's stuck in the exact same way. At least he's got someone to taunt.]]

** So we have the prequel story of a well-meaning but troubled young man who is a part of a special order of warriors with magical abilties as well as distinctive blades that struggles with his dark side and becomes frustrated when he isn't granted the rank of "Master". He becomes manipulated by a creepy old man who plays on his desire for validation as well as his attachment/defensiveness towards those he cares about and is at first thought to be an ally to the heroic faction. Eventually pledging himself to him as his apprentice. Going about this said bad guy sets up a threatening antagonist faction led by his secret apprentice as a patsy for his own machinations. With sequences involving him pretending to be captured by one of his chief allies in order to put the troubled youth into a fight where he would embrace darkness, which he does in order to win. Also getting him to become complicit in the murder of a leading master when he threatens someone important to him. The youth disabling him, and the dark lord subsequently finishing him off. The climax involving a battle between former friends after the aforementioned character is overtaken by darkness in some way. [[RevengeOfTheSith Hmm...]]

** Xigbar notes that Ventus has a pretty good "angry look". When he first met Sora in Hollow Bastion, before even removing his hood, he joked how someone used to give him the same glare as Sora.

* EvolvingAttack: Every character has Finish Commands that level up and unlock new Finish Commands in a branching system. Their exclusive Finish Commands unlock stronger versions of themselves--Ven gets Air Flair that evolves up to Level 4, then to Stratosphere as his Level 6 finisher, while Aqua gets Magic Pulse 1-4 with Teleport Spike as her Level 6. Terra's break the naming pattern, Rising Rock 1, 2, then Dark Star 1, 2, then Demolition, but Dark Star is essentially still a powered-up versions of Rising Rock.

** The Surge commands have simple animations and deal moderate damage, but they also provide invincibility during the attack animation, deal a good amount of damage due to dealing multiple hits (circumventing the damage {{cap}} on bosses), and have decently fast reload times. Spamming Thunder or Fire Surge is a common strategy for beating the Bonus Bosses because they're just that effective.
