The Smiling Man
- Feb 14, 2006
In an entire world populace, AtW could not find someone suitable or at least potentially suitable for the position of a guard aside from his own apprentices?
Who knows? Maybe not.
Might not have been up to his standards.
"I have transcended to an existence of only the heart. I should have come back as a Heartless, but there is no sign of such a transformation.
My body has surely perished. However, I am different from the other Heartless, keeping the memories of before, and I have not taken on the form of a Heartless. "
I still fail to see how this would be around the same time that Maleficent comes in.
All he said is that he should have come back as a Heartless, but that he didn't. He came back as what XH is most likely: a free-floating heart.
Also, why does it follow that Ansem's banishment must have happened before the Heartless invasion?
Notice how Ansem does not write anything about Radiant Garden being taken over by Heartless in the SARs before he wrote anything about being banished?
No one ever mentions that Maleficent was behind the Heartless invasion much at all.
Leon said:We lost our world, thanks to her.
Right before Cid says:
Cid said:One day, a swarm of Heartless took over our world!
They all state simply that the Heartless overtook the world. In SAR 3, Ansem states "Chaos affect not only this world, but many other worlds besides." which could relate to this event.
Chaos could mean several things, including the events of BBS.
Also, do you notice that this is also the report in which Ansem is banished?
Did Ansem see this happen? No. He simply assumed.
It sounds a little more than just an assumption. How Ansem worded it in SAR3, it sounds like he knew Xehanort passed through the door, just not why. He even then said that his "other five apprentices, believing it was for the sake of research, stared deep into the darkness and were pulled into it."
Ansem calls himself a fool later, talking of how much of what he had thought was false.
I really don't feel like scouring through reports and scenes, so do you mind pointing out exactly when this was?
Taking Ansem's words as fact is not something which can really be done, as much of what he discusses in those secret reports were not directly seen by him.
I'd take Ansem's words as fact over a guess...
Again, why did this have to occur before the invasion?
Neither Ansem, Xehanort, or XH ever wrote about the takeover happening.
