DISCLAIMER: Due to the shadowy figure's vague pronouns in the Japanese script and lack of context, we have substituted in "we" in their dialogue for the time being.
(Maleficent limps back to her castle after the battle with the Player and Prince Phillip.)
Why can I not change how it ends?
(A voice sounds out.)
???: Did you think nobody knew you were from the future, Maleficent…?
(Maleficent whips around.)
Maleficent: Who goes there? Show yourself!
(A figure steps out from the shadows, still hidden from view.)
(Note: Don't know if it's important, but the figure looks like static fuzz.)
???: Who am I? I guess you can call me…
That's certainly vague.
Darkness: Your scheme was rather simple, Maleficent.
Travel to the world of the past, rewrite your own defeat, and gather the seven hearts of pure light. That's what you wanted.
Darkness: However, changing the past is not so simple that any ignorant person can do it.
"You may travel back in time to a past in which a version of you had existed. This requires your body and heart to have once been split."
These are the rules of time travel.
(Cuts to an image of Rikunort stabbing Maleficent in KH1)
Darkness: When the boy you thought you'd manipulated so cleverly pierced you with a Keyblade, it crossed your mind.
(Cuts to side by side image of Maleficent and Master Xehanort.)
Darkness: You would most likely now be able to travel back in time using the method that elderly Keyblade wielder once taught you. Right?
(Back to Maleficent.)
Maleficent: So everything had been foreseen from the start.
Darkness: The Master knew, of course, that you would come to the past using that method. This is why Enchanted Dominion was never constructed in the real world, before the Keyblade War.
Maleficent: You grow tedious! The point is that you've trapped me, have you not?
(Cuts to Book of Prophecies.)
Darkness: Before the Keyblade War, the Keyblade Wielders
(The book flips open, revealing the worlds we visited.)
Darkness: defeated monsters of darkness and gathered light, from future worlds of light drawn from the Book of Prophecies.
(Cuts to image of the Foretellers.)
Darkness: After the Keyblade War. the Master and the Foretellers vanished,
(Cuts to the Keyblade Graveyard.)
Darkness: and the remaining Keyblade wielders' memories of grief were overwritten with new experiences.
However, without the Master and the Foretellers, it would no longer be possible for worlds to be drawn from the Book of Prophecies.
(Cuts to the Disney characters at various points in their story, mostly happy endings.)
Darkness: For this reason, worlds were reconstructed in advance from data.
Including, you see, ones that had never been constructed in the real world.
(Back to Maleficent)
Maleficent: I told you to get to the point. So what you mean to say is that this place is not the real world?
Darkness: Correct. This place you have come to is not the real world. This is a data world that was prepared in advance, and its story has already been decided. You have been locked out from rewriting anything at all.
Maleficent: Ah, so you were forced to trap me in this isolated space because you feared my power.
Darkness: A good guess. However, it was not your power we were afraid of.
It was your memories. You know the future.
This may only be data, but one of the worlds of the seven hearts has been left out.
It would be inconvenient for us if memories of what happens in that world were to transcend time.
Maleficent: Hmph! So? What do you plan to do?
Do you intend to keep me trapped here in this world of… data, or what have you?
Darkness: That would also be inconvenient. We need to have you return to your original time.
Maleficent: But isn't it impossible to travel forwards through time?
Darkness: There is a way.
