Quotes are all from Nomura, unless otherwise specified

<<<On Keyblades>>>

Keyblades seem to have been developed since last I cared to look at updates on Kingdom Hearts.

The composition of keyblades have been defined as having one of “two different constitutions”, the material either being from the “Light side or the Dark side”. The importance of this seems to be that a light and dark-side keyblade are required to seal the door to Kingdom Hearts, as this is what Mickey did in KH1. However, “…the inner [essence of the] key can act from either side and its abilities won’t change”.

“The special hearts held by the Princesses were used to artificially make [Riku’s first] keyblade….so it is different from a proper keyblade.” The topic of artificiality makes me think keyblades are natural occurrences, contrary to the idea of the Chaser as a keyblade creator. Also, Nomura’s statement that “Riku's ‘Way to the Dawn’ and Kairi's keyblade are naturally the same type of keyblade as Sora's” makes me think they are also natural with his use of that word. I know it’s a translation, but it’s what I have to work with.

There is also a “normal process of acquisition” to receiving a keyblade, and I have no idea what it is since only Sora seems to have had a normal acquisition. The Knights get theirs in the field, Mickey gets his from the Realm of Darkness, Riku’s has the “Soul Eater’s transfer and occurrence” and Kairi gets her from “Riku’s handing it” over to her.

The only qualification for being a keyblader that has been revealed so far is that one must have a “strong heart”. The amount of keyblades correlates with the amount of people “with qualified hearts”. As per Nomura’s statement about the uniqueness of Roxas, since Sora and Roxas both have the ability to use two keyblades, either they are using their own and someone else’s, or Roxas had his own heart – which was hinted at in a Nomura interview.

Also, Nomura made it a point to say that the King has “the ability to use keyblades from both the Realm of Darkness and of Light”, which makes me think this is abnormal and should be considered special.

<<<On the Knights>>>

Sora means Sky, Riku means Land, and Kairi means Sea. Ven is a nickname for his real name meaning wind, Terra means Earth, and Aqua means Water.

However, considering there might be a relationship between the people with similar elements, I find it amusing that Terra claims to hate Xehanort in KHII:FM and Riku has Xehanort’s heartless/heart within him. Quite inconvenient.

Also, I hear Ventus might be a probable name for Ven’s real name.

Nomura said “The armored figures have a connection to Xemnas but after all I can't give any specifics at the present stage”. However, he sort of did. The armored figures have a connection to XEMNAS, not Xehanort. As far as I know, Xemnas was a NOBODY. Any thoughts?

<<<On the First Secret Video>>>

”There are four main untold stories to consider: the period of the King's absence, the period of Riku's absence, Roxas' time in Organization XIII, Xehanort's past.”

“Master of Keyblade” sounds strikingly similar to the epitaph we saw in KHII for Roxas, “The Lost Two” could easily mean the King and Riku, and the “Memory of Xehanort” is obviously a reference to his past.

As for Chasers and Keyblade War, ya got me!

<<<Other>>>

“In the near future, when you experience the new Kingdom Hearts, please see about opening this book. I think surely some of these points will tie together.”

Is this a translation error, or does he really mean “book”. As in, Zexion’s book. Right?

<<<On the Second Secret Video>>>

Are there three knights or four?

I don’t know why Nomura would put in such a deceptive shadow, but I screenshot it and you can view it here. What is this? Look at the shadow in the helmet. The shadow can't be from what the Knights are looking at, the Elder Mage and his heartless, nor any of the other Knights since they are on the other side of the helmet. ???

<<<On the Future of Kingdom Hearts>>>

Nomura said: "Kingdom Hearts is Sora's story."

Enough said.



And I know a lot of this is old, but I just started getting back into this.

No, Twilight didn't write too much. If you can't sit in one place and read a few things for about five minutes, then you have ADD.

Also, nice information. But the 'deceptive shadow' thing is merely the fade-in of the approaching UEM.

NO, I like your theory a lot. Actually has some depth in it. But I can't agree with you when you said Roxas once had his own heart...but at the same time I think it's kinda sloppy that Nomura would say 'oh Roxas could use the Keyblade because he had a connection with Sora' If I may ask, where did Nomura hint about Roxas having a heart at one point? Thanks

In the additional event "Farwell to a Friend", there's a scene where Axel tells Roxas "You really do have a heart, don't you". What is the actual case here?

Nomura: In this scene, it ends bringing up more mysteries about Roxas, so for the answer, maybe take care to follow your hunches well, it's also related to Xehanort's memories, but I can't give any specifics now.

Sort of. Honestly I haven't been paying close attention to everything new with Kingdom Hearts but this is what I gathered what I found in the last few hours. I never played FM+, but I assume it still has bearing on the series.

What I think when Nomura said "Roxas can use the keyblades because he has a connection with Sora" is that the heart of Sora is connected to the body of Roxas. Both are running on one heart. They are sharing that one heart. The power of Sora has been splited into two bodies, thus explaining why Roxas has power over the keyblade. It's because they are sharing the same heart!

Twilight I love ya ... great compilation of thoughts :)

Also enjoyed the last part... "Nomura said "Kingdom Hearts is Sora's story" ... Enough said." Well said XD

I think Sora can use two Keyblades because Roxas is within him. And vice versa, in some respect... because Roxas is within Sora, Roxas can also use two Keyblades. Interesting how Sora doesn't actively use two, though... does Sora choose to only use one while in a normal state of mind (while not in a drive form), or is there a hidden restriction to why he only does? I don't recall where it was said, but it was indeed said that Sora can use two Keyblades.

Yes I reallize this.

But Nomura said the amount of Keyblade's is the same as the amount of people with qualified hearts.

This makes me think that either by having a nobody, you get special powers to control two keyblades, or that Roxas had his own heart and corresponding keyblade.

Sora can still wield two keyblades now that he is reunited with Roxas, so I think that a keyblade wasn't just created for Roxas - it was meant for him. AND Sora to use. And Roxas had at least had a piece of Sora's heart.

nice, and thing though about the Keyblades, if you say that Sora got his through 'normal acquisition': Sora got his keyblade because Riku's Heart was tainted wit Darkness and was literally swallowed by it at the moment he was supposed to get his keyblade. Because the Keyblade had to go to someone, Sora was the one nearest by. The fact that he's got a strong Heart made it possible for him to actually wield it. Now, once (I think) Terra said: You're not the one I chose... Or something like that. Since Terra was the one to wield KK in The Gathering, it is possible to assume that Terra was its previous wielder. When Terra says 'chose' does this mean that the previous owner decides who gets the keyblade? Is that normal acquisition?
Sora was able to wield a Keyblade, so Roxas is too... This is too simple for me. A Keyblade has to be wielded by a strong Heart. If not, then it will dissapear, as with Riku and Sora's conflict at Hollow Bastion in KH1. So Roxas probably does have a heart. (This can be followed by a seperate theory, but lets save that for later...)
I think anybody is able to wield Keyblades from both realms, it doesn't matter if it's Light or Darkness. I mean, why would somebody not be able to wield a Keyblade from the Dark Realm as long as they have a strong Heart?

I think Xemnas is essentialy the same as Xehanort. This can be proven by this: Nomura once said: If Ven is related to Roxas, then Sora is probably connected to. Why? Because they are the same 'existence'. So if the knights have a connection to Xemnas, then Xehanort must surely be involved as well.

My theory on 'The Lost Two' is that they are Ven and Aqua. Both have been severely hurt. (We all know how Ven was hurt and in FM+ we see Aqua's armor shattered.) Now, about that shadow in Ven's helmet. Could it be his own armor, or could it really be something else. It could be something beast-like since at some point it looks more like a dog/wolf. But I think it's just something of his armor, since after Ven moves because of Terra, it's gone. btw, here's a screen shot:

Okay, please understand that all this is not meant to undermine your theory IN ANY WAY. This is just how I look at the things you mentioned. Please gimme some feedback :p
