From Jiminy's Journal:I'd also like some elaboration on how Repliku "came back." Was he in Riku's heart? Did he join with him in the Dark Margin? How did he get the Way to the Dawn? A lot has been left unanswered about him.
He was picked up when Riku was hit by the Demon Wave in the Realm of Darkness (when Riku spoke to the person whose voice was muffled).Riku had been holding his own against Dark Riku and Xigbar – and Ansem, who retreated when Sora joined the fight.
The two friends defeated Dark Riku, who insisted the Riku on the side of light was the fake. But the final judgment was rendered by a third Riku – the replica inside Riku’s heart. He could have seized Dark Riku’s body for his own, but instead the replica sacrificed himself in order to tear Dark Riku free of the vessel, so that it could be saved for Naminé.
From Jiminy's Journal:And some more: Why/How did Aqua become Anti-Aqua? Is it because Ansem SoD pushed her in? Was it just the water, or did Ansem SoD have something to do with it?
Sora followed Riku’s voice to the shore of a dark sea. There, he found his friend and the King barely holding their own against Aqua, whose heart had been consumed by darkness. Sora prevailed over Aqua, and pulled her from the sea as she began sinking into its depths. At long last, Master Aqua returned to the realm of light.
So the "how" she became Anti-Aqua is explained thanks to Jiminy, but Jiminy's Journal implies it was because of the water though I would guess that Ansem's blast was a big contributing.Aqua, after she fell to darkness. Years and years of wandering through the realm of darkness ended with her being cast into the watery depths beyond its margin.
I think it was said in 0.2 that he fights with Xehanort for control, so it's like a tug-o-war, so he probably wasn't aware that he was fighting them.Was Terra, as the Guardian, conscious of the fact that he was throwing one of his best friends around?
Yeah, 0.2 showcased this (unless you mean anytime between then and that fight).Was Terra's heart "conscious" at all before the fight against Terranort and Vanitas?
I don't think it is, but since Terra had Xehanort within his heart and that heart is shared between the two and exist in KH3 thanks to time travel, it may be the one Guardian just from different time periods? Otherwise I guess they both summon the Guardian when the other isn't using it?How is the coexistence of both Ansem's and Terranort's Guardians explained during the time that they both exist?
Probably. I mean, Xemnas retained Terra's memories so it should stand to reason that Terra retains the memories of the last 10-ish years. Hopefully this is expanded upon with the new Lingering Will storyline because he just drops out of the game after his fight with Terra-Xehanort and it isn't addressed what happened to him.When Terra's heart, mind, and body all reunite in the KG, does he remember his time as the Lingering Will AND the Guardian?
This series does love to obfuscate plot details a lot but I really wouldn't rule it out. If Nomura does address this in some form then it'll be put into a game way down the track lol.So many questions, so little time.... And probably no answers.
I probably got some things wrong, so I apologise in that event, but I hope some of your questions and wonder has been cleared up, even a little.
