This isn't so much a nitpick as something that sadly prevented me from enjoying something fully; did anyone else get nausea from playing the Final World? I mean the concept and design of the world was beautiful so it's impossible for me to dislike it wholly, but I think the stationary ground and fast moving sky plus the neverending repeating background gave me some sort of weird motion sickness or vertigo.

Also a legit nitpick: Chirithy annoying ass squeaky voice and vomit inducing chirping while flying was obnoxious as hell, it was like nails on a chalkboard. If it had a deep voice like Darth Vader or Morgan Freeman it would have improved it's monologue scenes 500%.

Huh. Can't say that I did, I love losing myself in that place, but that's interesting to hear it had this effect on others.
I'll try play with gravity more next time and see if it has any effect.

Again, the only good way to end this is by revealing that the MoM are just 6 Chirithys in a trenchcoat and the top one just happens to have Ray Chase's voice.

Also I could see Dark Chirithy having a Darth Vader voice.
(Or maybe we can get filtered Lance Bass again)

We never got to play the ending of Chi in UX:

At least give us the Nightmare Chirithy fight!

So...Young Xehanort going to Toy Box was to find a way in bringing back Xion, right? But didn't Vexen just use his old data on Xion to make a new her?

Now we know why Xehanort never used hair regrowth products.
But what if his beard also works?

That people can't experience this outside of Youtube grinds my gears.

They really should have included Vexen, Lexeaus, and Zexion's nobody types in the Battle Gates. I'm hoping those can be added in the DLC.

Same. I was also hoping to see Demyx's and Roxas' too, since they weren't in the game either.

Right, so initially the plan was to create the X-blade (using the clash between light and darkness, so what we got in KH3 was clearly not initially planned to be THE war according to earlier statements given by the characters) and summon enough Keyblade wielders (via using the newly forged blade to provide them with transport to the battlefield) in order to prompt a second, genuine war, and from there they would see what became of the world after. See if they were worthy of the "precious light the legend speaks of." That was Xehanort's stated endgame in BBS, correct me if I'm wrong, so I don't know where this whole using the X-blade to "purge" the worlds and reset them to a blank slate came from ,in KH3. The statements and logic given just doesn't track to me. Where was this information back when he was explaining his goals in BBS? Mind you, 80 percent of what little Master Xehanort says in KH3 is taken word for word from BBS (the redundancy is mind boggling), so what changed? DID anything change? Why do I even have to ask this question? Such a head scratcher...

The lack of a donkey dream eater in Prankster's Paradise. Like it's bad enough that dream eaters don't even bother with trying to thematically fit in with the worlds but donkeys were right there for obvious animals.

Also, there are dinosaur dream eaters. There were dinosaurs in Fantasia. The dinosaur dream eaters do not appear in the Fantasia world. Huh?

I guess they all got turned into those million Heartless we see when we first enter the world. Either that, or they just conveniently forgot after 11 years.

Why is Yen Sid's "important" book you're told to read in KH II just a bunch of gibberish? Even reading it with newfound knowledge, it doesn't really say anything aside from some very general "don't give up hope" metaphor.
And he tried to make Sora of all people reading it.

*Sora uses the Union X Keyblades from the past to defeat the Heartless*
*Vanitas, screaming in the distance*
"See? See? I told you! You all called me crazy! Well who's crazy know, huh?!"
*He says as he keeps hitting on Xemnas' shoulder and nudging an unresponsive Xion*

Right, so initially the plan was to create the X-blade (using the clash between light and darkness, so what we got in KH3 was clearly not initially planned to be THE war according to earlier statements given by the characters) and summon enough Keyblade wielders (via using the newly forged blade to provide them with transport to the battlefield) in order to prompt a second, genuine war, and from there they would see what became of the world after.

Maybe this is what Nomura meant about Xehanort's character changing. From wanting to gather Keyblade wielders to re-enact the War and conjuring the Darkness and the true Light, to summoning the X-Blade to reset everything because people are bad.

So he basically went from Hellsing's Major to Zamasu, and I can't really say it was an improvement.
The only thing that works in Nomura's favour is that minus Maleficent's one line they never really tried to sell KH III as a "Keyblade War".

All this talk about Xehanort's motivations for the "Keyblade War" makes me wonder if something was lost in translation or was it just plain retconned by the writers? I

After seeing the Re:Mind teaser trailer, I just realized that the OC’s tend to bon their heads when they talk. Why? For what reason? Do they all share some weird disorder where their blood stops going into their head if the don’t bob their heads up and down when they talk?

I think it is a technique to channel their power

To give the boring answer: It's an old video game technique from the early days of 3D graphics of over-animating a character to signify they're talking or just to make things look more interesting as the characters could be considered too stiff otherwise. Not only head bobbing, but KH3 still has characters make a lot of default arm movements for the same reason.

There's really no need for either of them though here. It's not like this is the PS1.

So this is like, really weird, because I'm sure I'm just digging a 13 years old nitpick, but it only hit me now:

Riku gets blasted by an explosion and that rids him of Ansem's shadow.

Yeah, I know. Oldest point to bring up in the book, and I'm sure everyone has exhausted whatever insight can be given on the subject, but I'm just reflecting on how that was a bit hasty and kind of a shallow conclusion to the redemption arc Riku has been on since KH1 (which was also great in CoM).
It could've been a way to keep writing a unique scenario far different from Sora's for him as a character, instead of making him repeat "Darkness might still have a hold on me" for 3 games straight.
It's also proof the non-descript "magic of the heart" fix-it-all was around for a long time in the series.

Now I say that, but I'm not sure keeping a character looking like another character would've been a good move for this franchise, and surely enough Riku's popularity and fandom would've taken a colossal hit.

"Angelic Amber" will never not sound dumb. Angelie Amber sounds way better to me.

So how did Jiminy survive the heartless tornado? Or was he put back together along with Sora in the Final World
