Looking at pics. of Riku, I realized that on the Final Mix cover he has wings. I was wondering why he has them, or is it just a play on Sephiroth's wings? And if Riku and Sephiroth have nothing to do with one another, then why does Tetsuya Nomura continuously make them look alike and sometimes act alike? Is he just playing with us!!?? Here's the pic.

Maybe it means that Riku is the devil? Due to the go with Maleficent, become a controller of Heartless and all that.

well, wings usually have to do with angels. usually angels are associated with light. except in cases like sephiroth. so maybe it's put there for us to question which he is: a person of light who embraces darkness, or a person of darkness who contains a glimmer of light.

it prolly has a meaning cuz many artists (japanese artists of any sort especially) often put a deeper meaning into even some of the smaller, less obvious things included in their artwork. [many manga artists admit to doing this as well] so i don't know.

yeah, i think they're just playing with what the one-winged angel for sephiroth means. i kinda agree with nothingsfear. but again, its part of the statue.

1. He's on a statue.
2. same question could be asked about the crown above sora's head and the wing near kairi.

I think they added that stuff just to look cool.

The wing in that picture is obviously from a statue. But if you've noticed in other pictures, riku is holding souleater behind him (kh1 cover and another final mix pic). They could just be showing black wings to signify that riku is not a completely light person, or uses the power of darkness. I'm pretty sure the wing has nothing to do with sephiroth (I used my common sense on that one).

yeah it's the statue.
but if it had a meaning i think it would e riku is like a guardian angel that watches over sora and kairi.
(makes sense)

I like this theory the best. As for everyone else...yes I know the wings are from the statue...so what? It could still be symbolic! :p Otherwise, why would the artist specifically put the wings behind Riku?
