When watching the playthrough of the Secret Episode earlier today, I noticed that there was something familiar about the Realm of Darkness, which reminded me quite strongly of Kingdom Hearts II -- or, more specifically, The World That Never Was.

I'd always found the creepy mist in TWTNW to be kind of interesting in KHII -- it's red and blue and flows around the upper levels, and you mostly see it after Ansem's machine ruins Xemnas' artificial Kingdom Hearts, though it's in the Ansem-and-the-machine scene before it blows up, too. It kind of felt like a demonstration that the world itself had been injured, but I didn't think much beyond that, because it really didn't seem relevant.

After watching the Secret Episode, though, I'm not so sure -- because that stuff is all over the place there, and in much greater quantities. It's in the skies impersonating an aurora, and it's off to the sides of the platforms. There seems to be more and more of it as Aqua approaches the boss, though it's not visible in the secret movie afterwards.

Honestly, I'm stumped as to what it means at this point. But I can't help but feel it's connected somehow, and that it represents something. It's not really how they represent the darkness... might it be connected to something else?

Actually, I think it's due to TWTNW residing in the Realm Between, lying somewhat closer to the Realm of Darkness than of Light. It could be some kind of overflow of darkness that seeps into the world. Showing that the two are near to one another.

But that's just my thoughts on it. It could be something else entirely.

Pretty much this.
TWTNW resides in the Realm Between but it's very close the the Dark Realm. Even Pete (yeah I know, Pete) says that the place was to close to the darkness, or something along those lines.
