So how did Jiminy survive the heartless tornado? Or was he put back together along with Sora in the Final World
I imagine it has to do with Jiminy Cricket being turned into the embodiment of a “conscience” by a god-like fairy. Perhaps it made him immune to conventional death.

Also the name Jiminy Cricket comes from that old school colloquialism that replaced saying “Jesus Christ” in sentences.

So Jiminy is Jesus hahaha

What if the plot twist is that the abnormal "chosen one" power people feel from Sora is actually Jiminy

Sora is actually just a normal kid and Jiminy is the one performing the plot miracles

Arendelle had only 1 memorable location from the film that you can visit (Elsa's Castle), although you can't even enter it.

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.
I took it more as Ansem the Wise redemption that his final gift was bringing Riku back to normal.

And when Frozen is used again in later games it’ll probably use the sequel with the plot taking place in a different land, no more Arendelle. So that means we lost our one chance to enter the castle. I'll never let this go.

Ansem had to have fought Aqua and kidnapped his old master either during or before Riku and Mickey were in the Realm of Darkness/When Sora's at Olympus. Meaning Ansem kidnapped Ansem the Wise at the very beginning of the game. Shoved him in a locker for 70% of the game. Then took him out so Ansem could maybe find something in the Old Mansion computer.

I know the weird gap between the kidnapping of Ansem the Wise to him and Ansem at the mansion has been mentioned before, but I don't believe the when this would have to had started was.

That whole thing is a hole in the time-space continuum if I've ever seen one.
Seriously, Riku and Mickey's first visit proves Ansem SoD met Aqua and Ansem earlier (either that or Dark Margin is wider than we thought and they reutilized assets), but he leads Ansem to the Mansion in "real time".

What's even crazier is that somehow Vexen was ready for it. I don't see Ansem SoD leaving a post-it on one of the Graveyard's rock saying "Brb, went to kidnap Ansem. Maybe we'll get X girl, fingers crossed ^^ "

*pfft!* Ah, yes. How could I forget Vexen's selective omniscience.

This plot thread is so screwed up. All I can assume is that maybe there was originally more to it.
