Re: Nomura talks Final Fantasy characters, Cooking with Remy, Aquaï¿½s Reveal
Obviously I fully acknowledge that yellow eyes and pointy ears are supposed to be traits of Xehanort and not darkness in general. I even remembered Nomura's statement correctly. I am only calling it into question because of how they have decidedto speak about the Aqua reveal. More than one person has said, "Aqua has fallen to darkness". The connection to Xehanort should be obvious yes? I dont expect them to use the term "norted", but they seem to be avoiding connecting the reveal to Xehanort. Or at least, it seems that way to me.
Correct me if I'm wrong, but we didn't see Xehanorts face before his future self came to get him. And as I speculated in my first post, his eyes in the first reveal do not look completely gold yet to me.
To sum up my current thoughts, maybe the yellow eyes and pointy ears are unique to Xehanort not because they are traits he was born with (i dont think his younger self had pointy ears), but because he purposely exposed himself to the darkness and developed those traits. Therefore, everyone connected to him will have those traits too.
What if the yellow eyes and pointy ears are a result not of just darkness, but the result of bathing in darkness for extended periods of time? Like legit DROWNING in it like Aqua has for 12 years of RoL time. A sign that darkness has eaten away and corrupted your being? In which case, Aqua would have fallen to darkness alright, but she is a "Xehanort" all of her own
Ps, sorry for massive mistakes, on my phone
