Just like the title says, think of a Kingdom Hearts game and talk about your idea here.

Who should the playable characters be? what should the plot be? what sort of gameplay should it involve?

From other threads-

Neku and his gang as Nobodies.
Roxas in a Persona like adventure- a year long mystery at school.
Maleficent temps a young woman(new character) to the darkside.
Aqua has to deal with being a teacher to Max Goof and PJ.
Terra goes on a journey to master his new Void powers.
Xion becomes an assistant to Ansem the Wise. There's some new crisis in the Data realm that she has to get involved in.
Isa opens a detective agency and struggles to deal with normal life and the impact of his numerous sins.

A prequel set during the ten years between BBS and 1. I originally wanted to follow Lea/Isa/Arlene as they are forced to join the Organization and deal with their new lives. As they "break bad" and become villians, their friendship dissolves. It should end right before Chain of memories.

A stealth game where Namine has to outwit Larxene.

The Star Wars galaxy is native to Realm of Darkness. Aqua gets involved in one of their conflicts.

Sora's father is Sion from The Bouncer but Sora never knew what his old man did before he came to the islands. Riku and Kairi have separate subplots dealing with their families.

Riku gets a love story with a new character sorta like FF13-2.

Someone else mentioned it but I like the idea of Yozora dealing with the live action remakes. Its a way of remaking 1/2 without actually remaking 1 or 2.

Kingdom Hearts 4:

The guardians split into groups and go on their own journeys to search for clues relating to Sora's whereabouts, exploring new and old places to search for their friend. Meanwhile, old and new enemies appear, each with their own goals. And this time, they just might win this endless war.

Four Scenarios
  • Terra/Aqua/Ventus
  • Lea/Roxas/Xion
  • Riku/Kairi/Mickey
  • final

The group parts ways with their friends to explore the Realm of Darkness in search of clues relating to Sora's whereabouts.

Plot Points:
  • Ventus begins to recover memories from his days in the Union
  • Terra gains control over his inner darkness (becomes more porewerful)
  • Final boss is against a powerful heartless (like Dark Hide, Dark Inferno)
Locations visited:
  • Realm of Darkness
  • End of the World
  • Pieces of various fallen worlds

The group go off on their own adventure, exploring the Realm of Light as well as their memories for clues relating to Sora.

Plot Points:
  • They come across Xigbar here and there who reveals small hints regarding his plans and Sora
  • Lea and Isa reveal to everyone their missing friend from Ansem's castle (Isa becomes a party member)
  • Final boss is against Xigbar (who reveals his keyblade)
Locations visited:
  • Twilight Town
  • Mysterious Tower
  • Olympus
  • Pirates of the Carribean
  • Pride Lands
  • (Robin Hood world)
  • Hawaii
  • Memory Worlds (Roxas, Xion)

The group set off and journey to old areas, some new areas, meet with old and new allies, in their search for Sora.

Plot Points:
  • Kairi recovers her memories of what Xehanort did to her, and her being sent to the Islands
Locations visited:
  • Radiant Garden
  • Traverse Town
  • Hollow Bastion (castle area from kh1)
  • Disneyland (like the town world but much bigger and lots of characters, like Max!)
  • Keyblade Graveyard
  • Alexandria (FF IX)
  • Scala Ad Caelum

Final Scenario Plot Points:
  • The groups gather to discuss what they have learned
  • Complete selves of the old Org join to help
  • Lauriam, Elrena, Demyx, and Luxord's other reveal what Xemnas told them about their keyblade legacy
  • They reobtain their own keyblades
  • Xigbar confronts everyone and reveals Xehanort was being used, leads them to Shibuya
  • In Shibuya, Xigbar reveals himself to be Luxu, and tells them of the Master of Master's plans
  • Luxu plans to forge another x-blade with a clash between 13 lights and 7 darknesses.

Final Battle:

13 Lights - Terra, Aqua, Ventus, Lea, Roxas, Xion, Riku, Mickey, Kairi, Demyx (other, Luxord (other), Lauriam and Elrena
7 Darknesses - Luxu, Ira, Gula, Aced, Invi (two others neede, Ava? someone else)

End: the X-blade is forged, Luxu uses it to open the black box, revealing
  • the Master's Keyblade (Pride Superbia or something)
  • the Master's Heart
  • Something else
The Master is revived, who then defeats the heroes. The Master and the fortellers then leave. Sora is then seen in another world with Yozora. KH5 then takes place.

After the possible DDD2 and BBS2, I want to see the trios changed up.

One game about a new Mark of Mastery (but this time not in the realm of sleep), where we have Terra and Sora retry, and Kairi try for the first time. Sora doesn't really care about the title, but if the test is tied to a mission (looks like at this point that its a tradition in dark times), he will go along, plus Kairi will be there. They are not separated, and the words in the game are the ones that also appear in Union Cross and Dark Road, as they are on a path to understand the book or Xehanort or something along the lines. You can freely choose who to play as, and the others are party members. Final world is Scala or Daybreak Town.

One game where the current active masters are on an important mission. Riku, Aqua and Mickey are roaming either the Realm of Darkness, or alternate worlds (maybe worlds based on the live action versions of movies used for previous worlds), or Square worlds, in search of the origin of Darkness or Yozora, or some other mystery. This would be like BBS, where you have separate scenarios, but they meet up sometimes.

One smaller game where they are trying to find Subject X, you play as Lea, and Isa is a party member. Roxas and Xion join later, and maybe Ven (if X is Skuld). Not sure about the worlds, but Twilight Town and Radiant Garden are a must. Maybe have it as a 0.2 sized game, where are free to roam the whole of Radiant Garden, searching for clues.

So much of Kingdom Hearts now is all these little plot threads slowly entwining and building, so I don't really have a particular story idea to make since I'm not sure where it could be fit in other than making it have little to do with everything else. I guess I probably would make a new protagonist and new villains. The story wouldn't use the KH structure very much, instead having a lot of interesting events happening in a smaller amount of worlds. And of course, just for fun I'd fulfill my dream of seeing DQ/Chrono content in KH. (I'd say Aya Brea as well, but I've not given up on her being 'on the table' for Nomura.)

I guess it would be more "a crazy JRPG in the KH world" than something that has that much to do with Nomura's work, then.

Face My Fears

She's not an "it"!

BbS 2: Terra/Aqua/Ven explore the Realm of Darkness, Land of Departure (secret rooms), The World That Never Was, and the remaining PoH worlds. The main story would be discovering that Ven had a connection to the past and they are looking for clues about his true nature (darkness/light). Main villain: Ava

3D2: Riku/Kairi (with Namine as their Jiminy) go into the Sleeping Realm to search for Sora. Yozora/Namine have some sort of connection (Yozora may think that Namine is the Nameless Star). Main villain: Durol/Yozora

358/2 Days 2: Roxas/Xion/Axel (with Saix) explore Radiant Garden and Twilight Town for clues regarding Subject X. They find something that leads them to worlds that she visited and they investigate to get more information about her. Main villain: Luxu

Epic Mickey: Mickey/Donald/Goofy visit worlds Sora visited to see if his disappearance has affected the people he's connected to in those worlds. Main villain: Maleficent/Pete

Kairi explores her own heart in sleep, searching for clues that might lead her to Sora -- recovers her own lost memories in the process and kicks Xehanort's ass:

Action-RPG with rhythm mini-games

Merlin's Secret Forest / The Sword in the Stone
Destiny Islands
Radiant Garden/Hollow Bastion
100 Acre Wood
Bambi (1 and 2)
Dream!Enchanted Dominion (as a connection to Aurora's dream and memories from another reality)
Fantasia 2000 (times 4)
The Caribbean (post-KH3)
Finding Nemo
Traverse Town
Scala ad Caelum
Final World

That's Arc 1.

The other arcs would be more or less what @Face My Fears said ❤ except I'd add a co-op action game in which Namine and Xion have their own separate journey from the rest of the cast, to figure out together their new individual selves

I want a whole box set of games.

Kairi, Minnie, and Daisy form a trio and go on a adventure together. Kairi is the keyblade wielder, Minnie is the mage, and Daisy could be a FF class like Swordsman or Monk

Worlds could be comprised of older and newer Disney films dealing with the new and former Princess of Heart. It'd be interesting if Kairi sought out the new PoH herself. Worlds would be

1. Agrabah
2. New Orleans from PatF
3. Enchanted Dominion
4. Castle of Dreams
5. Kingdom of Corona
6. Moana
7. Radiant Garden

Villain could be either Maleficent or possibly the Foretellers

Gameplay wise I'd like a FF7 remake style game, where you can switch between party members, with their own moves, specialties and such. A game like this would certainly help characters like Terra, Xion, Axel, and Ventus get playable, as well as having more time with Aqua, Roxas, Riku, and Kairi and fleshing out their gameplay more. I know that's probably been said a lot, but I want a KH style game like that.

Melody of Memory also had a good idea with the Sonic Heroes vibe with the teams too.

Untitled Vanitas/Villains Game

Console: PS5/XSX


Vanitas has returned from his apparent demise in KH3. He never believed in MX's plan (or at least that it would work out in his favor) so Vanitas had set up a contingency plan in advance. The scream energy stolen from Monster Inc., the remaining unversed that are fragments of his being, & a new Vanitas Remnant that formed following the death of his replica body are all fused together to create a new body for the will of Vanitas in the Keyblade Graveyard. However something is missing: his heart. Or his half of a heart anyway. Ventus now has his whole heart back, including the dark half that had been Vanitas. The Will of Vanitas has a new body but no heart to go with it, he's effectively a nobody in his current state.

With no heart, he has no keyblade, the remaining unversed were all sacrificed for his resurrection, & without a heart he can't produce new unversed. So while he's alive again, Vanitas has nothing to work with. As much as he hates to admit it, he needs help...

Meanwhile, Maleficent & Pete have been going through problems of their own. Some external force has taken away control of the heartless, no matter where they go, the heartless now attack the duo. Maleficent has returned to her castle in Enchanted Dominion to rally the goons that once served her. Pete on the other has retreated to Disney Town to find some old friends of his. The two return to the graveyard to see if there's anything to learn about what's going on & there they come across Vanitas.

The three of them realize that it would be in their best interests to work together for the time being. Maleficent uses her magic to give Vanitas a souleater sword just as she did for Riku. (OK, I don't actually know where exactly Riku got Souleater from but unless it's otherwise stated somewhere, I'm rolling with the idea that Maleficent created it) so that Vanitas can do some fighting on his own.


The base gameplay is fundamentally similar to KH2/3 but with a few tweaks due to Vanitas' fighting style & darkness based magic. Combos & dodging involve flashsteps & short range teleporting. Instead of Cure, he uses Drain as his primary means of recovering HP. Dark Fire splits apart when cast & the fireballs home in on a single target. Dark Thunder is horizontal instead of vertical. Dark Blizzard fires off an icicle that travels a set distance & then shatters, becoming an area-of-effect spell. He also has shotlocks of his own (as demonstrated in Ven's final boss in BBS) & teleporting takes the place of airstep.

Vanitas has 2 weapons that he can switch between on the fly with a tap of the L1/LB button: Souleater & Keyblade. The souleater is stronger against normal people while the keyblade is stronger against the heartless.

Which on that note, the common enemies of the game are in two categories: heartless & "protectors". the heartless we're all familiar with, as stated earlier an unknown force or entity has taken control of them & now they seemingly no longer serve any masters. Protectors are world specific local factions that protect the people & fight both heartless & villains. This means in many battles there'll be a mix of both factions battling it out & the player will have to rapidly switch between weapons to defeat both groups efficiently.

Because this is a game about being the bad guys, there are two additional mechanics to create the of playing as a video game boss: "Minion Summon" & "Limit Drive". Minion Summon is a quasi-RTS mode where the player summons the followers of one of the active party members. Each party members, including guest members, have their own minions. By leveling Minion Summon, stronger & more numerous minions can be called forth.

Limit Drive is a transformation the party member undertakes when they receive a certain amount of damage. It's meant to replicate how final bosses in games so often have a 2nd form after their HP is depleted. When transformed, the party member & all on-field enemies are transported to a member specific arena where they battle until 1 side is defeated. This is to accommodate the possibility that not all Limit Drives will be able to fit in every area of every world. each Limit Drive has an accompanying track to boot.

While the player mainly plays as Vanitas in normal gameplay, they take control of party members during Limit Drive & have control over their summoned minions too.

The core party for the game is Vaniatas as the player's character with Maleficent & Pete as the AI allies. The idea is for these 3 to form a sort of dark counterpart to SDG: Vanitas as a dark Sora is obvious, Maleficent has magic like Donald, & Pete's forcefield is a counter to Goofy's shield. Most worlds have a guest party member, another villain who agrees to aid the trio in their endeavors in exchange for defeating common enemies. To break down the core party's abilities:

Minion Summon
-Tier 1: Floods
-Tier 2: Scrappers
Tier 3: Bruisers
Limit Drive
-Tier 1: Dual wields both keyblade & souleater. (Enter the Darkness)
-Tier 2: Chimera amalgamation of unversed body parts joined together in an eldritch horror-looking monstrosity (Unforgettable)

Minion Summon
-Tier 1: Goons with axes
-Tier 2: Goons with bows
-Tier 3: Wyvern heartless
Limit Drive
-Tier 1: Dragon form. (The Deep End)
-Tier 2 : Hybrid, her witch & dragon form merged into a half-human, half-dragon hybrid (Hellfire ~ Battle mix)

Minion Summon
-Tier 1: Beagle Boys
-Tier 2: Weasel Soldiers from Prince & the Pauper
-Tier 3: Defender heartless
Limit Drive
-Tier 1: Steamboat Willie, enemies are transported to Timeless River where the steamboat launches fireballs from its stacks at them (Rowdy Rumble)
-Tier 2: Julius, which probably requires some retconning (The Encounter)

If you're wondering what's up with listing keyblades/unversed/heartless that these supposedly don't have, that's because they gradually get all of their shit back over the course of the game & the keyblade & higher tier are unlocked by changes in the story.

It turns out the one who seized command of the heartless was The Horned King all along, somehow using the magic of the Black Cauldron to control them. VMP arrive at Prydain to overthrow him & take back the heartless. The heroes also want to stop Horned King's invasion of the worlds so Vanitas & Ventus form an uneasy alliance.

The save point before the Horned King fight is the point of no return. This is due to how radically the game changes once Maleficent has her heartless back, they wouldn't be fightable enemies anymore & she'll move on to her next objective....

All of the party members & their armies are loaded into the hold of Hook's ship which lands in Disney Town, begining a full scale invasion & war insde of Mickey's world. Most of the guest party members engage in battle with the various Guardians of Light, with Vanitas jumping in on each duel & defeating the heroes (basically a reverse KH3). Eventually, the Cornerstone of Light is destroyed, allowing Maleficent to call forth her heartless & turn the tide of battle in her favor.

With no other options, the citizens of the world are evacutated via a fleet of gummiships piloted by the GoL. The refugees later settle on Traverse Town, making it the new home for the Mickey Mouse cast & giving TT a reason to reappear in future games. VMP meanwhile, finally have the Datascape at their disposal. However one last obstacle stands in their way...

13. Datascape
Final Boss: Data-Sora with Donald & Goofy https://www.khinsider.com/forums/index.php?threads/design-a-kh-boss-battle.221905/#post-6584988

So I originally had a lot more story typed up (I've been working on this post on & off for over a week) before deciding it was getting to be overkill & kept it to the basics. Suffice to say, there were ideas behind each GoL appearing in Disney worlds.

Ever since I found out Final Fantasy XVI's gameplay is similar to Devil May Cry due to having Ryota Suzuki, the designer for Devil May Cry 5 and Dragon's Dogma, as the battle director for that game, I now wish for a Kingdom Hearts that plays like Devil May Cry. I want to be able to switch between my Keyblades.

They should also bring back the Wardrobe mechanic from Kingdom Hearts 0.2. I like to customize my playable character. And maybe also be part-affectionate parody where it doesn't take itself seriously and makes fun of the stuff that KH is criticized for, but still embrace the core elements of the series with an understanding as to why fans like Kingdom Hearts.
