The Terranort Report
NOT A SPOILER FRIENDLY BLOG.
Endgame questions. Destiny Islands Trio version.
He’s able to use both his Ethereal Blades and a Keyblade, like how (spoiler) Axel can use his Chakrams and now a Keyblade.
Oh! This reminds me of a theory I have, that Keyblade wielders can summon weapons that are not their Keys at will. Riku summoned the Soul Eater at the beginning of the game, Axel could use his Chakrams after he got the Keyblade, and YMX uses the Ethereal Blades in addition to the Keyblade. So I believe that they can summon weapons besides the Keyblade.
The light in the darkness, leads to the last key.
This scene made 3D even more worth then seeing Riku countless times, Aqua ;___;
i also wonder know where Ansem the Wise went to…
In Atlantica and Pride Lands Donald’s magic allowed them to blend in, yeah. But at the beginning of the game the boys are on the Destiny Islands shore, in their KH1 attire and bodies. They were purposely de-aged in order to relearn the ways of the Keyblade. Going to the Sleeping Worlds doesn’t de-age you, because at the end of the game we see Sora in Traverse Town in his KH2 outfit surrounded by Dream Eaters.
The most frequently asked question I’ve gotten since Dream Drop Distance was announced was “Why do Riku and Sora” look like their KH1 ages in this game?”. My initial answer before playing the game was that you weren’t playing as the real Sora and Riku, rather their dream selves, but I was wrong. Now that’ I’ve beaten the game and had time to analyze it my definitive answer is now time travel.
In the flashbacks taking place before the start of the game, Yen Sid explains to Sora and Riku that in order to effectively combat Xehanort they not only must become masters, but they must also forget their self-taught method of using the Keyblade and learn from scratch, the easiest way to do so? Have Sora and Riku revert to themselves at the moment when they first received their keys, the moment the Destiny Islands fell to darkness.
The golden eyes are the only change I can tell. It’s only after opening Kingdom Hearts that the thirteen darknesses will all become Xehanort.
Because Riku passed the Mark of Mastery exam, by unlocking the seven sleeping Keyholes within Sora’s dream he gained the power to awaken sleeping hearts. Yen Sid explains this in the ending.
Inside of Sora. When his body is located from within Castle Oblivion Riku will be able to awaken it.
