* BodyguardBetrayal: Implied. It's revealed that several future Organization XIII members, such as Braig (Xigbar), Dilan (Xaldin), and Aeleus (Lexaeus) were guardsmen in Ansem's castle before Xehanort overthrew him, implying that Xehanort convinced them to turn against Ansem.

** In the secret ending, Terra says that Xehanort is going to get "shown the door." At the end of ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsI'', [[spoiler:that's exactly what happens with Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, who is Xehanort with LasterGuidedAmnesia]].

** Tinker Bell meets Ventus in Neverland and she meets Roxas in ''VideoGame/KingdomHearts358DaysOver2''. She treats Roxas as though she's met him before, even though the player had no idea why until ''Birth by Sleep'' came out.



** Watch the ending of the introduction movie closely. [[spoiler:After Ventus descends from his Awakening and transforms into a ball of light, if you look real close at the next scene, you can see him enter Sora.]]
** At the beginning of the game, we see [[spoiler:a younger Master Xehanort, who looks very much the present day Xehanort, as well as Terra. He even appears to be voiced by both Creator/RyotaroOkiayu and Jason Dohring (who voice Terra). When Terra picks Riku to be his successor, we see a brief silhouette of Young!Master Xehanort and then Riku circa ''KHII''.]] [[HarsherInHindsight This should make you cringe]], as [[spoiler:when Terra performed the [[TakeUpMySword Keyblade Rite of Succession]], he didn't intend for Riku to end up being body snatched by Xehanort like he was.]]
** Note how Tinker Bell met Ventus in Neverland... suddenly her interactions with Roxas in ''Days'' make a ''LOT'' more sense!
** Pay close attention to Braig's sudden change from when Terra [[EyeScream knocks his eye out]] and when he confronts Aqua at the climax. Near the climax of Dream Drop Distance? [[spoiler: Braig drops the WhamLine: "I'm already half Xehanort!" and ''points at his yellow eye.'']]
** At Destiny Islands, Aqua muses [[spoiler: "One Keyblade is enough for any friendship...I wouldn't want to wish our lives on all of them.]]
** When [[spoiler: Master Eraqus]] was killed by Terra while he was trying to protect Ventus, [[spoiler: Master Eraqus]] faded in the same way Master Xenahort faded away when he [[spoiler: unlocked his heart in order to possess and steal Terra's body]], as well as [[spoiler:the way Ventus faded away while he was moving into Sora's heart at the end of his own story]]. As it is revealed later, [[spoiler: Eraqus deliberately put his heart inside inside Terra's body so that he could help him overcome the darkness in his heart and as well as help him resist Xehanort's influences]].

** Watch Xehanort wears the ending Organization XIII coat in the opening scenes and his normal boots are the same as what the members of the introduction movie closely. [[spoiler:After Ventus descends from Organization wear.

* CallForward:
** "My friends are my power, And I'm theirs!!" - Ventus.
** [[spoiler:From the true final boss (Xehanort) fighting JUST like Xehanort's Heartless first form (Guardian and all). Also, when Master Xehanort possesses Terra, his first lines are the "His heart has returned to darkness" speech Xehanort's Heartless gives Sora before you fight him in ''[=KH1=]''. Xehanort is full of these.]]
** Vanitas's suit resembles Riku's Heartless suit (minus the Heartless emblem on it, natch), they share a fighting stance, and the demonic appearance of his Void Gear closely mirrors that of Riku's Soul Eater. In the intro FMV, Vanitas and Ven re-enact the scene from the [=FMV=]s of ''I'' and ''II'' where Riku [[TakeMyHand outstretches his arm]] and Sora runs after him.
*** And, in one of the opening scenes, a young Master Xehanort stands on the shore of Destiny Island and says 'This island is like a prison'.
** Xehanort wears the Org XIII coat in one of the opening scenes, and in his normal clothes he wears the same boots that Ansem and Org XIII wear (you get to see them in Terra's story, at least).
** One line in ''VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII'' from Xigbar, where he says that the Keyblade picked a dud "this time" and that Sora wasn't half the hero the others were... Meaning Aqua, Terra, and Ventus.
** Near the end of the opening scene with Ventus at the Station of Awakening where he talks with [[spoiler: newborn heart Sora]], mention is made that they will "open the door", something that is told to Sora by a mysterious voice in KHI. What makes it double as {{Foreshadowing}} is that if you listen closely when Ven says the line, you can hear [[spoiler: Sora]]'s voice speaking alongside his.
** It's not all serious stuff, either. Aqua waking up Ven the same way Kairi woke Sora up in ''KHI'', complete with "Gimme a Break, Aqua.", and Terra saying [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts "Come on, Ven. I thought you were stronger than that."]]. The beginning scene also mimics ''KHII'', where Ventus wakes up in the same manner as Roxas.
*** In addition to Terra's line, [[spoiler: Ventus-Vanitas says "What's wrong? Giving up already?" as a CallForward ''and'' a CallBack!]]
** Another one (that retroactively doubles as {{Foreshadowing}}) is [[spoiler:Master Eraqus' death scene. As he [[DisappearsIntoLight fades into light]], his body phases through Terra at the last moment. Much like the whole [[ItWasWithYouAllAlong Sora-Kairi deal in the first game]], Eraqus' heart is locked away inside of Terra's as revealed by "Blank Points".]]
** From the epilogue:
-->[[spoiler:'''Terra''' (''inside his mind/heart, conversing with Master Xehanort''): "Wrong. [[BeCarefulWhatYouWishFor You're going to get shown the door]], old man."]] [[note]]And as we all know, [[spoiler: in KHI, when the door to darkness holding Kingdom Hearts is opened, Xehanort's Heartless, Ansem, is destroyed by the immense light coming from the door, since Kingdom Hearts is pure light.]] [[/note]]
** From Aqua's meeting with Sora and Riku at Destiny Islands:
-->'''Aqua''' (''to Sora''): "So then, if something happens, and Riku is about to get lost--or say he starts wandering down a dark path alone--you make sure to stay with him and keep him safe."
*** [[http://monjava.deviantart.com/art/Aqua-meets-sora-and-riku-184775868?q=gallery:monjava/27230077&qo=28 "Why do you say it like it's a pre-determined thing?"]]
** In a flashback to Master Eraqus confronting [[spoiler:Master Xehanort]] about his objectives:
-->'''Master Eraqus:''' ''"Would you [[VideoGame/KingdomHearts blanket all the worlds in darkness?]] [[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsII Reduce them to nothing!?]]"''
** After Lea introduces himself to Ventus, he says something quite familiar:
-->'''Lea:''' "We're friends now. [[CatchPhrase Get it memorized]]."
** 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.

CallForward: This being a {{Prequel}} to the whole series, there are a few Call-Forwards to the original game.
