You're not exactly misremembering, but it was never outright stated somewhere in-game, it was as so often in an interview:I've noticed that Nomura and someone else connected to the game has specifically said, "Aqua has fallen to darkness". Is being Norted really the equivalent to falling to darkness? I mean sure, falling to darkness can lead to being Norted obviously, but, I dunno. Why not explicitly say "Aqua succumbed to Xehanort" or something?
If Aqua is not norted, maybe the yellow eyes aren't unique to Xehanort after all? Back when we saw the first footage of young Xehanort and Eraqus playing chess, I noted that it didn't look like Xehanort's eyes were gold, or that gold was mixed in with brown. And we know from the Xehanort reports that Xehanort purposely exposed himself to the darkness at some points during his life.
Could the golden eyes and possibly pointy ears actually be a sign of darkness and not just Xehanort? This would totally explain Braig's transformation by the end of Birth by Sleep because I'm pretty sure Braig was NOT norted yet when he and Aqua fought and yet he had golden eyes (and possibly pointy ears, I don't remember)
But I thought Nomura explicitly said the eyes and ears were unique to Xehanort, or maybe I'm misremembering.
It is given directly there that it has to do with a deep connection to Xehanort, although one has to concede that the interviewer is speaking about the golden eyes and the pointy ears with Nomura giving no further specification.BBS Ultimania said:Comparing the Organisation members when they were human to when they were in the Organisation, apart from Xehanort, only Isa and Braig have differently-shaped ears and differently-coloured eyes - why is this?
Nomura: It's a question of whether or not they're deeply connected to Xehanort. In Braig's case, comparing the scene where he's injured in his battle with Terra and flares up at Xehanort, his appearance afterwards changes, which hints that something happened with Xehanort in between.
But where's the proof that Xehanort fell to darkness at that young of an age? I will concede on the pointy ears since he didn't have them in DDD as Young Xehanort but the yellow eyes were with him from teenagehood and back then it was said he was just curious about outside worlds at best. Nothing about darkness at that time.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
Wasn't there some BBS datamining that had a model of Young Xehanort but with a face? He still had yellow eyes then.Have we seen his face before his implied first contact with his future self? Both of his cameos in BBS, his back is turned. During the scene in DDD when he meets his future self, his back is turned. And every face shot we see after, whether its "present" young Xehanort or "past" yound Xehanort, we're to assume he's already been "infected" eith his future self, but doesn't remember the events to come (as per the rules of time travel), right?
I am harping on this point and I mention for the third time, the first trailer we see of Xehanort in the new graphics, his eyes do not look pure gold/yellow yet. If that is technically the first Xehanort before all the time loop nonsense, then maybe his eyes weren't originally gold just like his ears weren't originally pointy. I think this idea is both reasonable and far fetched
Exactly. Nomura will have to live with our blood on his hands after the game comes out. We are done for."I just wonder if everyone will be okay.".
Lol we're dead. If he didn't predict the reaction to dark Aqua, then we're all dead.
Considering the context of this statement being right after Nomura talked about his own surprise about the strong reaction from fans it is also possible that jab was actually at the fans, lol.Nomura's "I just wonder if everyone is going to be okay" has me real scared. So, who's going to die? Aqua? Ventus? Riku? Place your bets and prepare for ultimate suffering.
I'm almost positive he was talking about the fans. He knows whether the characters are gonna be ok or not. It's us he needs to worry about lolConsidering the context of this statement being right after Nomura talked about his own surprise about the strong reaction from fans it is also possible that jab was actually at the fans, lol.
I agree, there are just so many unanswered questions, that the focus should primarily be on the story. A returning Final Fantasy character does seem more plausible with this statement...KH3 is crowded with tons of mysteries and plot points it needs to resolve for the final confrontation with Xehanort so it's not really the game for introducing new Final Fantasy characters. I'm not that mad. But I do want the Cloud vs Sephiroth sub-story to be cleared up before we go to the next saga.

Iâ€™m 95% sure heâ€™s there. We know thereâ€™s a restaurant there and, with these comments, we know heâ€™s somewhere early on so that we can bring back the ingredients we collect.He didn't answer if Remy's mini game is taking place in Twilight Town.
