Added DiffLines:

* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Sure, Master Xehanort is the polar opposite of a saint, but the narrative still tries to convey that he's a tragic FallenHero. However, while his Reports definitely succeed at that, his [[ObviouslyEvil actual screentime]] makes it seem like they might as well have been written by a completely different character. And even his one (seeming) PetTheDog moment -- being willing to at least let [[spoiler:Ven die in peace on Destiny Islands]] -- is ultimately subverted because: (1) Xehanort was the one who [[spoiler:tortured Ven to that point in the first place]], and (2) Xehanort simply continues to [[spoiler:abuse and exploit Ven even further after his eventual survival]]. More than a few fans just see it as InformedKindness attributed to a CreatorsPet instead.

* SpiritualAdaptation: The protagonists are knights that travel through space, the BigBad is an old man skilled in said knights' combat discipline, one protagonist makes an eventual FaceHeelTurn after having a taste of the dark side, TheDragon is a DarthVaderClone with some relation to one protagonist, and one of the heroes is a short, acrobatic warrior skilled in the knights' discipline. You sure this wasn't originally a Franchise/StarWars game?

* StrawmanHasAPoint: Given the countless examples of DarkIsEvil in the series, Eraqus didn't exactly pull his dislike of Darkness from out of nowhere. That being said, it still doesn't excuse his PoorCommunicationKills.

* JerkassWoobie: Eraqus; yes, he's an anti-darkness KnightTemplar, but it's hard to blame him when [[spoiler:Xehanort uses darkness to ultimately ruin his ''and'' his students' lives.]]

* EvenBetterSequel: Or rather, Even Better Prequel. Many regard this game as one of the better in the series, if not [[MagnumOpus the best]], mostly due to its battle system (which is regarded as the most polished, refined, and just plain fun one yet), the interesting story and refreshing three-POV narrative.

* AmericansHateTingle: Although this game has just as much critical and fan praise in the US as it does in Japan, it hasn't left nearly as much of an impact among the general audience. In Japan, it's the third best-selling game in the series, very close behind the [=PS2=] installments, whereas in the US it's the third ''lowest''-selling game, behind the 3D remakes of ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsChainOfMemories Chain of Memories]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/KingdomHeartsCoded Coded]]''.

** The novels tint [[spoiler:Vanitas]] to be a WoobieDestroyerOfWorlds instead of the unrepentant monster he appears to be in the game. In the novels, any anger he feels results in an Unversed being born from him, and no matter how many times he tries to destroy them, every time he does, he feels an unbearable pain as a result. The cycle continues, and it is hinted that his reason why he wanted to reunite with Ventus was more or less salvation for him. Again, this is only in the novel adaptations; in the game, there is never even a remote hint that [[spoiler:Vanitas]] feels any sort of pain when spawning or re-absorbing Unversed (if anything, he seems to enjoy it when he's seen doing it! Then again, [[CombatSadomasochist maybe he LIKES being hurt.]] Either that or he's done it so many times [[FeelNoPain he no longer reacts to it.]])
