I swear that was Data!Riku in Sanfransokyo. He doesnt act like Repliku.

Dark Riku just kinda feels tacked on

He isn't Riku's past flaws rubbed in his face

He isn't the homicidal existential crisis Repliku afraid of the fact he is gonna die and has no idea whats gonna happen to himself

He isn't Data Riku forced to be evil against his will 'Ala Tron'

He's just an asshole so you can have the classic Riku fight' cept Kh 1's most iconic bosses don't translate well in Osaka team's style...' and so Namine can have body back.

He really does. He feels like a last minute substitution, honestly. Maybe they were going to use Data-Riku, changed their minds, and then came up with some bullshit so they didnít have to make a new character model?

And Iím still confused as to why they brought Repliku back only for him to die again. I guess this time it was more on his terms, but still. It kinda stands out compared to all the other assorted offshoots who are allowed to be their own characters.

As for Data-Sora...presumably he's still there, but I feel like having him show up now would be really awkward for anyone else involved. Maybe another time.

So fun fact

All the org members who have demise themes have some variation of the Org XIII

Cept Vanitas and YX

Vanitas is less org XIII and now Ventus and Sora's Personal Demon 'BROTHER!!!'

and

YX well he's just a little shit

Sai'x doesn't have one... cause he's cutscene is in complete silence 'There is NO background music' Perhaps to show he was the Traitor afterall

and Dark Riku and Terra-Xehanort have their bodies jacked

So those two don't have proper demise themes either

Hmm... do you think it would have worked better if rather than Dark Riku it was a fusion of Data-Riku and Data-Sora forced to fight for Orginization 13?

Not really. That sounds even weirder than what we got.

I mean, Vexen is just kind of hanging around, perfectly willing to make as many replicas as they need. Namine could've been saved just as easily without Dark Riku.

Before it's midnight, I want to mention that today is the 17th anniversary of the debut of Kingdom Hearts in North America.

Also, KH characters are going to be at California Adventure. Apparently.

Man, Dark Inferno looks more like a King Mook than a Bonus Boss. Even his name reinforces that.

That's why I'm glad the DLC is adding the Org back as optional bosses. At least they look visually interesting.

Its not like Invisibles aren't striking designs on their own [lol]

Sep 18th 2019 at 6:11:39 AM

I mean, I'd say the Invisible designs are more distinct and interesting at this point than the Organization. At least the Invisible design hasn't been endlessly recycled for practically every new character in the series the way that the Organization Black Cloak has been.

Honestly, it'd have been even lamer if the secret boss had been yet another guy in a black cloak.

Dark Inferno's problem is... there is no intrigue or presentation

You walk into a barren wasteland and he just appears and YOU KNOW exactly what your looking at despite having a theme that doesn't tie back into any previous themes

unlike the the Demon Tide where someone is just SO fucking proud of that design/concept that they whore it out as much as they can

[up]Wasn't Dark Inferno the Heartless illusion Saix used to manipulate Roxas and Xion to attack one another?

Also, wasn't he alive at that random moment he showed up? Why was he there anyway? Was he a ghost?

Demon Tide is legitimately amazing as a Climax Boss. And even if it's just Black Coat Guy number Who The Fuck Even Knows, I'm down for the Master of Masters as the super bonus boss cause there's no way that fight wouldn't be fun as hell.
