Did anyone else thought that Sora was a Final Fantasy character at first when we were first-

-introduced to him in the first Kingdom Hearts game?


When I first started playing Kingdom Hearts, I used to think that Sora was from a Final Fantasy game because of him looking like a Final Fantasy character and because of Kingdom Hearts having Final Fantasy characters in it. But later on, I found out he was a original character strictly created for Kingdom Hearts. But still Sora is more of a Square character than a Disney one, since the people at Square were the ones that created him.

When KH first came out, i had a vague idea what FF was. So i didnt make the connection till later.

I didn't know anything about this game but saw someone else playing it. Because of that, I didn't have any kind of context to guess where he was from. Well I did see the Beast and Bell were in the game but I didn't think he was from Final Fantasy. I just thought he was some weird kid with big clown shoes and a one piece jumpsuit. (Such a weird dresser XD)

I didn’t think so, but I had also been following this game’s development as a kid with nothing better to do on the internet. So I knew what FF characters were FF characters and what original characters were original.

Nah, my first impression or introduction of Sora came straight from Kingdom Hearts itself. I was much younger back then and I didn't hear about Final Fantasy around that time so, ironically, I thought characters like Squall, Yuffie, Cid, and Aerith were from Kingdom Hearts.

Silly me!

I'd never even heard of Final Fantasy before I'd played Kingdom Hearts the first time, so I immediately pegged Sora as a KH original character and thought of the FF characters as though they were invented for KH as well. I did realize they were from something else due to their entries in the journal, though.

I personally don't see Sora as a FF character. Definitely JRPG material though with that spiky hair. Every time I think Final Fantasy I think of Amano's art.

That's pretty impressive; my first exposure to the game was via the Brady Games guide from the library.

The first time I saw Sora, or KH rather, was from the KH1 trailer that played during commercials back in the day. I didn't know what Final Fantasy was back then but I knew anime, so I though Sora was an anime character.

I thought Riku was Sephiroth.

I didn't play any FF before KH so I barely even heard of this Sephiroth guy everyone was going nuts over.
