    See the Keyhole thing is why people didn’t catch on the hint that Riku is a Keyblade wielder because for most of the game, the Keyhole show itself to everyone. Sora, Donald, Goofy, Tarzan, Jane, Triton, Ariel, Sebastian, Maleficent, Jafar, Genie… the cutscene is hint-y enough by design, but because the other Keyholes show up to everyone, players I’ve seen just think… oh so that’s where the Island keyhole is located… not that Riku can see it being special.

    The thing at the top of Young Xehanort’s Keyblade looks rather similar to the Goat etching on the No Name… Perhaps a connection to Luxu and the Player character from Union χ?

    You didn’t mention that the jerks at Dark horse list Deep Jungle in the world guide but it’s entry is non existent (it does exist in the Japanese edit). A visual guide on past games doesn’t constitute a new form of media so they should’ve had the page removed because of the copyright issue held by the estate of the author. They added deep jungle in the kh1 strategy guide with full artwork and render models of tarzan so why wouldn’t they allow the same for this?

    And third is cloud strife who is universe level ~ multiverse level.

    Ironic how they didn’t add Rikku to KH1 because of names when the series ended up having 13 Xehanorts some of which share the name Xehanorts, 2 versions of Sora, 2 versions of Roxas, 2 people named Ansem and Riku looking like a 3rd Ansem, and 2 Terras

  46. Julian Muscat
    July 29, 2021 @ 6:19 am

    That voice you don’t hear at the very start of KH1… I always thought it was Ansem for some odd reason.
    After KH2, I thought it was Roxas talking to him.
    Years later I thought it was Ventus actually talking to him.
    Now today after many many years I now find out that it’s actually King Mickey… wow… thank you Jared 👏

    If sora isnt a keyblade master then no one in that game is a keyblade master. They nerf sora every game so every side character can catch up🤣and then they pulled the bs saying riku became a master before sora

    July 29, 2021 @ 6:53 am

    You should do more of these, maybe even cover the whole ultimania

  50. 13KuriMaster
    July 29, 2021 @ 7:09 am

    We know that you don’t need to be an official master to bequeath a keyblade…. we know Sora has the strength needed to pull it off…. we know that Sora and Roxas have the same abilities… and we know that a bequeathment can happen accidentally (Aqua and Kairi). Lets put all of that together with the “Roxas, that’s a stick.” scene from 358/2 Days.

    Even if the keyblade Xion primarily uses now is still a sham brought on by her replica powers and having absorbed Roxas’s powers… we can say that it is still possible for her to get a genuine keyblade all her own that is just as valid as anyone else’s… as all the pieces have been put in place.
    (Also, technically Jack Sparrow can also get one but I feel like the keyblade may not consider him worthy so his odds are less likely)

    Didn’t know that the blindfold was to “deceive his heart”. I though it was somewhat of a limiter, because he pulls it out once (admittedly, from only one eye) in order to see Xion’s face in Days. Also didn’t know about Young Riku being able to see Keyholes, although it makes sense in retrospect.

    The rest of the info eventually found its way in the West. Plus, Xehanort’s gesture at the end of KH3 made Sora a Master.

    Wait so if tidus is 17 and wakka 23 that means they’re 5-6 years apart on the low end because they’re from the same game so if tidus is around 14 in kh1 that means tidus is at least 19 (going into 20) maybe 18 if we make tidus the same age as selphie (which they are just in different games)

  75. Lucas Franzoni
    July 29, 2021 @ 2:29 pm

    So kairi should also be able to see destiny island’s keyhole since aqua made her a keyblad weilder right? So sora’s two best friends would tell him about that giant keyhole and he would be like ok so i might be blind

  78. CGFinalMixx
    July 29, 2021 @ 3:36 pm

    For the keyblade master one, didn’t Sora technically take Kairi’s heart out of his own and transfer it to her body? I’m not saying that he was the level of a keyblade master in KH1 but it’s kinda interesting.

  79. Axels
    July 29, 2021 @ 4:19 pm

    I think that all this information is very interesting.

  80. Robert Lawson
    July 29, 2021 @ 5:23 pm

    Does that mean Kairi saw the Keyhole, since she was accidentally Bequeathed a Keyblade by Aqua around the same time as Riku?
    Okay, now that we know any “Master-Level” Keyblade wielder can Bequeath a Keyblade to someone, when would Sora and others qualify as “Master-Level”? Riku would probably be at the end of Dream Drop Distance, at the same time as his official recognition. But would Sora have qualified at the end of KH2? (Probably.) Would he have been un-qualified at the beginning of KH3 due to being reset to Level 1 (again)? Would he have qualified when he let Captain Jack hold the Keyblade before summoning it back? Well, he would certainly be qualified now; he defeated Master Xehanort himself and was given the X-blade, meaning he is probably an official Master. No takesie-backsies this time.
    I probably guessed that Young Xehanort’s Keyblade wasn’t actually called No Name. But I was surprised that Vanitas’ Keyblade was not called Void Gear. But, of course, Nomura decided to still be coy and not give it an actual name.

  81. ThatKVOBreh
    July 29, 2021 @ 8:09 pm

    I think Sora not being able to see the Destiny Islands keyhole is now considered a continuity error as Sora technically went through some kind of bequeathing by Ventus at the age of 4.

  83. WaveK89
    July 29, 2021 @ 9:56 pm

    I still like to think that even if a wielder has the mastery to bequeath, it’s still up the keyblade to determine the person’s worthiness of being bequeathed with he ability to wield. I just always liked that the keyblade ultimately determines one’s worthiness.

  85. Keiku
    July 29, 2021 @ 11:33 pm

    the bequeathing bit: i wonder if it’s the keyblade itself that determines whether its owner is a master or not. the mark of mastery is just a test to see if a wielder’s keyblade could be of that level, but as it is a human who grades the wielder, it’s not always accurate

  86. lostprogram00
    July 29, 2021 @ 11:35 pm

  87. tripoint23x

  88. Sjono
    July 30, 2021 @ 3:52 am

    It’d make far more sense for Ventus to be speaking to Sora. Mickey wouldn’t even know who Sora was, especially since Riku was originally supposed to get the Kingdom Key. Mickey somehow speaking to Sora in his dreams makes as much sense as Mickey talking to Kairi, Tidus, Wakka, or Selphie in their dreams/heart

    What if Sora could also key the keyholes due to his heart being the refuge place for Ventus and also the mending his heart thus becoming sort of one.

    I’m surprised you didn’t know about Rikku, she was always intended to be in the first Kingdom Hearts but they didn’t want to confuse players by having two characters called Riku so they swapped her out for Yuffie, who is a similar character with a similar design

  97. Brandon Nguyen
    July 30, 2021 @ 10:59 pm

    i feel like having the guiding advice in sora’s dive to heart would’ve been ephemer and it would’ve been a cool link from khux to kh. Cuz at some point ephemer is within sora’s heart too but when did that happen?

  102. Ace of Schrades
    August 1, 2021 @ 2:55 pm

    The part about Mickey speaking to Sora has been confirmed for, like, a while. Way before this particular Ultimania came out. It’s also hinted at a handful of times in KH1, KH1 Final Mix with the extra scenes, and even in BBS 0.2.

    What I really like about the Ultimania is that it explains that Terranort and Xion were hearts from the past. Terranort being the past heart placed in Terras reformed body and Xion being her heart from before she became friends with Roxas and Axel.
    Another thing was that when Xion regained her heart, it was because she could absorb abilities from Sora, since that was her main use in Days. But when Sora called her name in 3, that was apparently Roxas through Sora calling to her. I found that neat reading the Japanese version.
