Hello khinsider! first thread...something quick i thought of while reading a thread on vanitas' appearance:

if i remember correctly, Nomura said that he chose the name Vanitas for 2 reasons.
1. It's meaning ("Emptiness", in latin)
AND
2. It sounded similar to VENTUS.

for those that have played some form of Chain o' Memories, toward the end of the game, Riku Replica would talk to sora about how he is fake and EMPTY...

now, maybe sometime in BBS, Vanitas finds out that he is a replica of Ven. this could xplain why Vanitas is obsessed with Ven's strength, because he might want to **DAYS SPOILER*** absorb Ven like Xion wanted to absorb Roxas. **END SPOILER***

although i would personally hate if this were true, cuz i think the replica idea has been more recycled than Starbucks coffee sleeves. thoughts?

I dunno how much I buy into this theory...but I do think you are onto something with the absorbtion.

Riku Rep sencerely believed he could become whole by absorbing Zexion/draining his life force

Xion unknowingly started draining Roxas's life force....and then by the end intended to make them one being by absorbing him

Nomura did say that Days had a TON of hints toward BbS
i just kinda hope this isn't one.

u just gave me an idea...about life force.
maybe the THING that MX tells Ven he is losing is life force, instead of memories...

could be a direct correlation to Vanitas, if hes a Replica...

Thats a good theory
I think Vanitas is a nobody or some kind of heartless or an unversed? or a replica
in the new trailer Master X says to Terra to destory Vanitas, the one who destoryed the balence.
There's also the quote to the unknown person, "you shouldnt exist" which could be directed ta Vanitas.
which supports the theory

Hmm...that does kinda make sense in a way. You might have something here.
However, we're not sure yet if Vanitas is a replica of Ven, or even a replica at all.
The whole thing about who or what Vanitas may be is a mystery.

That would make sence!
but then why does he resemble riku so much, or why is he voiced by sora's VA?

I was considering this a while back. I keep saying to myself "They have some sort of connection, what is it?" Maybe Ven is the replica, maybe Vanitas is. They seem to have similar keyblades (teeth) and they seem to have something going on. You may not be far off.

Vanitas being the first nobody kinda makes sense to me, cuz we all know how the ORG feels about themselves lol. Vanitas fitting the whole emptiness thing...

i will b quite pissed if hes a replica tho...

Heartless were non existant at that time....thus making nobodies impossible.

any reason why? or do you just...not think it true?
(I have some reservations about the replica theory myself XD)

I think replicas are a possiblilty but unlikely.....
-just because...they were made to obtain the keyblade for the organization. That is the purpose of the only replicas we have seen so far.
-We have only seen Vexen make replicas...and he didn't...non-exist yet.

@rose girl
the definition of a nobody is someone with a strong heart who clung to existance after being turned into a heartless.
heartless give birth to nobodies...just how it is.
