Is he a new Riku Replica? Is he the old Riku Replica's heart? Is the Riku Ansem indeed?


I've been discussing this with some of my friends and we are pretty much divided on this. I believe it is simply a "Repliku 2.0".


What are your thoughts on this?

He is Riku from when Ansem possessed him in the first game. They dragged his heart from the past and placed it in a Replica which was used to bring back Namine

No he's not? That's what the game leads you to believe into literally his death scene at which point Repliku reveals that it's not Riku-Ansem, but rather himself.

This, but don't they poke at the fact that their Riku is a replica even earlier than that? I recall them dropping a hint as early as the first Graveyard interval.

I assumed this was a new Replica they had created rather than the Replica from CoM. They already had Riku's data. Why not just recreate another him?

After you think about it, it's pretty clear that it's Repliku.

- Despite supposedly being KH1 Ansem-Riku, he doesn't have the dual voice.

- He refers to his time possessed in the past tense.

- His personality is "douchebag" instead of "Ansem"

- Some of his battle quotes are just CoM Riku battle quotes.

- And upon his defeat he says he's the real Riku, which he wouldn't do unless he was Repliku after he was modified into having Riku's memories.

Yep! The hit is dropped by Remy's.

"Oh, no. The replicas are way more real than you remember. I mean one stole my spot!"

I think they might be two separate Riku Replicas, both created from the same data.

OH MY GOD! "Demyx" was autocorrected to "Remy's"! I'm disappointed in all of you for not noticing that.

This. I'm pretty sure the second Riku Replica is meant to be a new one.

A part of me is now expecting the two to merge since they're technically the same guy and eventually return.

I caught the typo, but knew what you were going for, so I didn't really bring it up. I thought it was kinda funny, anyway. That's my story, and I'm stickin' to it!

You're right again, the two Replicas are separate entities. I found the quote I was thinking of in my previous post!

Marluxia: "Vexen's latest replicas are no mere puppets. The Riku Replica we used in Castle Oblivion was just a prototype. The next replica, the one crafted from Sora's memories, was real enough to join our ranks."

I forgot about his last line, so yeah it does sound like that's the last we'll see him. I didn't get why people wanted him back so badly either, but it was nice seeing him again.
