Whuh? I'm sure Sora at least has some power of his own. I mean, yeah, his friends' powers have helped him out of tight spots before, but it's not to the extent of when, for example, Ven 'gave' Sora his armor near the end of DDD to protect him from darkness. The basic fighting skills Sora used in the fights I mentioned are what made him victorious. Just because Sora uses his friends' powers doesn't mean that he's completely useless without them, and doesn't mean that ALL of his fighting is without any personal skill.No, he was using the power of hearts connected to his to do all that... It's what the keyblade allows him to do
Riku has also been exposed to Xehanort and darkness far more than Sora has, therefore, he has more resistance to it. It's like in real life when someone gets a cold and then they're resistant to it afterwards, but then another person who hasn't been exposed is not immune. So that person gets the cold and falls under it while the person who already had it just shrugs the virus off. It's not the person who's now afflicted with the cold's fault that they fell sick. It's just that they haven't been exposed yet.They were going to do the same to Riku, but Riku was far more prepared
I'll just repeat what 8298906 quoted from Director's Secret Report XIII:When has he ever shown a resistance to darkness? It's only ever been the power of light that has saved him from darkness... Most of the time (if not every time) it wasn't even his light
"As such, if you use these paths too often you will be completely swallowed by darkness. Sora has used these paths several times before, but the degree of frequency hasn't allowed the darkness to stain his heart, so you can think of the influential power of darkness as being dependent upon the strength of the persons heart."
How do you know that? Have we ever seen Terra, Aqua, and Ven fight without the Keyblade? And who's to say that Roxas's ability to fight with a stick wasn't borrowed power from Sora, however ridiculous that sounds? The only person you mentioned that we've seen fight without a Keyblade successfully is Riku.Not really, most Keyblade wielders are exceptional fighters without a need for the keyblade (specifically)... Roxas could fight just as well with a stick as he could the keyblade... Riku has shown hand to hand combat prowess along with efficiency with other weapons... I'm sure Terra and Aqua are at least on Riku's level, and Ventus probably isn't too far behind... Xion is just as strong as Roxas... The others are an unknown, but seem just as competent
Yes. I agree that his ability is unique and quite special, but just because he utilizes it doesn't instantly mean that without it he's worthless.What makes Sora so special is he seems to be able to freely use the strength of his friends to help him fight- That's what makes Sora awesome, not because he's an exceptional keyblade wielder, but because of his exceptional ability to bond with others and use their strength to help him fight
