Added DiffLines:

* InformedKindness: Xehanort's ObviouslyEvil KickTheDog streak certainly calls into question whether or not he really is the FallenHero that both the narrative and his Reports keep painting him as.


Added DiffLines:

* NotHelpingYourCase: Sure, Xehanort, flat-out tell your {{Heterosexual Life Partner}} about your ApocalypseHow-worthy desire to force BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil, then permanently scar him with a CastingAShadow blast just for good measure. Surely '''''that''''' will get him to reconsider his stance on Light and Darkness, right?

Added DiffLines:

* BrokenAesop: The whole BalanceBetweenGoodAndEvil message is especially egregious here. Master Xehanort, the most vocal supporter of it, is the absolute worst example of DarkIsEvil in the entire series. Eraqus, who actually has plenty of ProperlyParanoid reason to dislike Darkness, is painted as a LightIsNotGood KnightTemplar (granted, his actual decision-making is still poor). The Fairy Godmother tries to convince Aqua not to use Light to fight Darkness, despite (A) that being the primary objective of just about every single game (including this one) and (B) [[spoiler:the would-be {{Asshole Victim}}s ending up dying anyway soon afterward]]. And in the end, [[spoiler:each of the main trio gets a DownerEnding via Darkness-related circumstances, while each one's surviving Light is what keeps him/her from being completely lost.]]

* FiveBadBand: Master Xehanort creates a loose one with the allies he recruits from different worlds:
** BigBad[=/=]TheEvilGenius: Master Xehanort
** TheDragon: Vanitas
** TheBrute: Braig
** TheDarkChick: Maleficent
** TheSixthRanger: Pete, although we see how he came to be Maleficent's henchman.

** Aqua is the only one of the trio who qualifies to become a Keyblade Master. Ventus is too inexperienced to apply, and Terra [[{{Antihero}} has too much darkness in him]], partially because of circumstances outside of his control. As a further example, take the Deep Space world. Both Terra and Ven have to constantly evade detection by the ship's inhabitants as they clear out unversed and help Experiment 626 (better known as [[Disney/LiloAndStitch Stitch]]) escape, which includes being attacked by the ship's defensive turrets. Aqua, on the other hand, simply walks up to the [[ReasonableAuthorityFigure nice lady in charge]] and explains why she's there. Of course, that could have been just luck; if the Grand Councilwoman wasn't there and it was just [[JerkAss Gantu]] in charge, Aqua would've gotten herself [[TooDumbToLive tossed in the brig even faster than Terra]].

*** Altered somewhat in ReMIX (and possibly Final Mix) with the addition of another "personality": Experiment 626 knows how to hoard Jokers and use Golden Fortune when he has enough. Most other AIs will still use Jokers immediately, however, only using Golden Fortune in the rare event of drawing three Jokers at once.

** 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 force 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...]]
