SO I'm sure we all know in Kh2 Riku wore a blindfold . But I want to know why? I didn't get it when Sora asked and Mickey said "His eyes couldn't lie." I am like what dose that mean?! I have been wondering for a while now...

when was this confirmed? i dont remember this.not really... he had to cover his eyes to not only keep the darkness back, but so that the organization couldn't recognize him... and the reason why is as if one of them looked into his eyes, They could figure out who he is and since he was responsible for killing Zexion and Lexaeus... They were on the lookout for him.
It seems to imply that wearing a blindfold makes it easier to pinpoint the source of light (only the brightest lights make it through the cloth, try it yourself!). I guess this is a metaphor for the things that really matter or something? So wearing the blindfold makes it easier to focus on his goal and shut out everything else and not be afraid of the darkness?The wind whistled past. The chilliness of it made Riku stir. It had only been days he and Mickey had parted ways.
“Sorry, your Majesty,” Riku said in a low voice, looking down from the top of a cliff. He didn’t know why Mickey had left, and he still didn’t have his answers.
This place was a wasteland on the outskirts of a town called Hollow Bastion.
I still can’t control the darkness inside of me—control Ansem. What do I have to do to become free? Or, is it already too late to ever become free?
If you could stare straight ahead without being afraid of the dark, the things you fear would vanish.
How could I not be afraid?
It’s hard to know where the light is, if it’s always shining. But if the world was covered in darkness, you’d be able to pinpoint the light. If everything was covered in darkness…
Riku covered his own eyes with the black cloth he held in his hand.
If I can just hold the darkness back, I’m sure I could become better person.
Riku jumped off the cliff, swinging his blade.
So many people wanted him to have golden eyes xD;I personally took it to mean that his eyes had turned gold, and he wore the blindfold to lie to himself about what it meant (that he didnt have a strong a hold on Xehanort's Heartless' darkness as he wanted to).
His decision to co-exist with it came in Re:CoM after he basically convinced himself he was 'better' than everyone else who used the Darkness. That didn't stop him from almost losing to XH again and thus the whole mess with the blindfold even came to be. He was struggling and clinging to his Self with all he had; that didn't change.He more of decided to coexist with it, in conjunction with light. This may have been what kept him from getting the orange eyes.
