She's not an "it"!
- Apr 9, 2007
Well Sora, Xion, Roxas, and TAV seem to be the only ones who won't change their keyblades. I do want Aqua to use Master's Defender (doubtful after KH3). I actually don't like people changing their keyblades - especially Riku/Mickey. I loved Way To The Dawn and Braveheart is kind of bland to me and doesn't even feel like Riku. Braveheart should have been designed to be a "completed" form of Way To The Dawn that would signify that Riku has reached the dawn. My opinion on people's keyblades is that they should have kept their original one UNLESS there was a valid story reason -- like Aqua using Master's Defender and NOT like Riku/Mickey's one line "LOL we strolled into the depths of hell and forgot to power up our keyblades, which we can apparently do now".By that logic everyone should have a new Keyblade by now, lol. But I see what you are saying somewhat.
So yeah, the only person I thought (pre-KH3) that should swap their base state keyblade was Kairi. She got hers handed to her so quickly, I assumed that she could get a brand new one just a quickly and no one would bat an eye. Kairi could have even gotten a brand new one at the start of KH3 and I wouldn't have even questioned it. They could have easily said "Kairi powered up her keyblade after completing training". Lea also needs a redesigned one because I REALLY don't like his design. I wish it was more like his chakram and able to switch between keyblade mode/chakram.
They could have shown Kairi going to the Realm of Darkness shore in KH3 and getting attacked. Destiny's Embrace could have been broken and Kairi would also get a Heartless Haircut, which would explain the new look when she talked to Axel. The scene could have happened a few minutes right after Riku got his haircut a la ReMIND.I can easily see Kairi using Destiny's Embrace in a full game where she's playable (DDD 2 or whatever the next game is) like Riku did in DDD, and then Kairi replacing it in KH4.
You know, History repeating itself, not unfitting for a KH game.
