She's not an "it"!
- Apr 9, 2007
I don't think Nomura had KHUX stuff in mind around KH2. I just meant that the interest in Xigbar being more than just a regular Organization member was present in KH2. I assume Nomura ran with it after and when KHUX became a thing, he must have been really inclined to using Xigbar even further. You would think a more shocking reveal would have been Demyx or Luxord, two characters with literally no known backstory and the least expected to have been there at the end, so I guess Xigbar written as Luxu shows how much Nomura was interested with his character.I always saw it as using him for prequel material like what happened in the spinoff games, not really sequel stuff. But I suppose it all paid off in the end with what they did with him.
(which is weird because I find Xigbar's fighting style and fights in general not that interesting, but like he always says... IF HE HAD A KEYBLADE maybe his fights would be cooler)
