KHIII wishlist!

bring back the others of org. xiii for khiii 2k15

More Kairi and Olette interaction in KHIII, or bust:)

Or can Sora and Olette TALK about Kairi with each other, at the very least ?

With Sora, perhaps, assuring the Twilight Town trio that he saved Kairi– and even said “hi” to her for them, like Olette asked him to?

Bonus points if Olette tells SORA that she thinks his and Kairi’s relationship with each other is romantic:

It would just be a cute parallel, imo.

“hmm, i wonder what sorts of spirits live in those lights!”

But something else I want from SoKai in KHIII: them both bonding over how they weren’t chosen.

No Master deemed Sora worthy of a Keyblade (and I know Aqua thought about giving him one, but she didn’t in the end. So it really doesn’t count), and he only got a Keyblade when it moved down the list of candidates.

And Aqua gave Kairi the power by accident.

But I really want a scene in KHIII, where Sora and Kairi finally confess their love for each other when thinking they’re going to die.

I don’t really need something like Ron and Hermione’s moment, or Will and Elizabeth’s wedding (though I maybe wouldn’t mind a sweet kiss between them, where it also flashes to Roxas and Naminé for a second).

But I’d be A-okay with them just, like, holding hands all night while staying awake, and a radio playing in the background or something.

Sora and Kairi wouldn’t really say or do anything, but it would be enough:

They AND the audience would realize that it was a Relationship Upgrade between them, in this intense moment.

So I was looking up KH cutscenes mostly from BBS and I was reminded Ven was taken by Aurora's beauty and I think he also like Snow White so what I'm getting at is....when Ven wakes up I want Kairi to be there and his first response is, "Are you an angel?" and develops this adorable little crush on her. Meanwhile, Sora starts stewing in jealousy and it kind of gives him the push he needs to I guess solidify what they are to each other. I dunno I just think that'd be a fun scenario.

…You know… I guess I’ve read so many fanfictions where it happens (or just imagined scenarios in my head where it’s happened), that I hadn’t realized that we never really have seen Sora and Kairi get jealous of someone when it comes to their significant other.

So, yes. I am all for this! Bless.

I think the closest we’ve ever gotten is Sora being jealous of Riku, like when Riku makes the race about sharing a paopu with Kairi (which Sora probably thought he was going to lose, because “I kinda always thought you were better at everything, too”).

And then maybe somewhat when Riku’s trying to smooth talk Kairi in KHI (the “If you hadn’t come here, I probably never would have thought of any of this” moment). Sora’s face there really says it all. LOL.

And maybe Sora may have been a little jealous that Riku found Kairi first in KHI? But there’s really no evidence to that one, so…

And as for Kairi being jealous… That’s never happened. Though I used to think she might someone get jealous of Naminé , if she ever learned what went down in CoM. But now I think that’d be OOC. Moreover, I think Kairi would be A-okay with Naminé, and not blame her for any of it (rather, she’d probably be impressed that even under the Organization’s thumb–and with no way to defend herself–she still did the right thing in the end), and if anything… maybe she’d just feel hurt that she got forgotten. And temporarily cheated on… with herself. But I don’t think she’d even blame Sora for that, either. Maybe Kairi would, sadly, just think that maybe she isn’t very memorable; and then our group would have to talk her out of that feeling.

…I also kind of used to think that maybe originally there was going to be a Roxas/Kairi suplot (similar to the Sora and Naminé one in CoM, before Roxas finds his true soul mate Naminé, or whatever), because they do interact some in II. And in Days and II both, Roxas dreams of her (because he’s getting Sora’s memories). And even maybe sees her on Destiny Islands in Days? And in the Deep Dive and Another Side, Another Story trailers, the TV on Memory’s Skyscraper is flashing images of Kairi while Roxas and Riku fight (almost making it seem like they were fighting over her in that stage of development?). And maybe if there had been a Roxiri subplot, Sora would have been jealous then… But that never happened (if it was ever even supposed to), and the closest thing we ever got to Roxas/Kairi is Roxas/Xion–because according to Naminé, Xion is “Kairi as Sora remembers her”–and Roxas/Naminé itself, of course.

So with all of that being said, I’m all for a moment in KHIII where Sora gets jealous. Especially since if this game is going to push SoKai–like it’s looking like it’s going to–they really need to start doing stuff with it, then. 

And I do think Ven’s a good candidate for this scenario: for the reason that you yourself said–and maybe because Ven has Sora’s memories of Kairi, and fell for her himself that way.

…I just remembered that the manga has Seifer crushing on Kairi… but I don’t think Sora ever really grasps it, and is just confused more than anything. So that doesn’t really count. XD.

Edit: Also, bonus points if Ven is so moved by Kairi, because he remembers she’s the goddess he used to equip medals of on his Keyblade in order to kick major ass. LOL.

But if Kairi was the second playable character–or even if she’s not, and is just a party member and/or just does some mean fighting in cutscenes–it would just end her character development from KHII off so well, and make it amazing.

Because she actually did have a great arc in II, that people have either forgotten about, or don’t even consider (due to them expecting too much from her, or then moving onto the next game and not thinking about it much… if they’re maybe new to the series, that is), but it did happen:

She actively goes to look for Sora and Riku herself, the moment the opportunity is presented to her (and dodges Axel while doing it, with the help of Riku and Pluto).

Gets kidnapped by Axel, yes, but ends up escaping him for a while! Axel - “I kidnapped Kairi, but she got away from me! After that, Saïx caught her…”

She escapes her imprisonment with the help of Naminé, who technically is her, and nearly gets into a throw down with Saïx.

After that, she jumps off a balcony, gets her Keyblade, and fights some Heartless to help Sora (and I’ve seen people shit on the way she fights before, but the girl’s had no training! She’s doing well! Plus, there’s gameplay and story segregation. Sora and the gang do not pull off their cool gameplay in cutscenes. The way they fight in cutscenes is actually pretty dang similar to how we saw Kairi fight).

And just the entire game, she’s going on about how she’s sick of waiting and wants to go with Sora and Riku from now on; and how she wishes she could fight like they do, because they shouldn’t be the only ones getting hurt.

“Maybe… waiting isn’t good enough.”

Edit: And her “This time, I’ll protect you” line from KHI evolves into, “This time, I’ll fight!”

“So all of you were out adventuring while I was living a normal life. Why do I always get left out!? You’re going to tell me about it later!”

“I wish I could fight like you and Riku… I know what you’re thinking, but you guys shouldn’t be the only ones getting hurt.”

“I’m tired of waiting, so don’t tell me to stay behind! From now on, wherever one of us goes, the other follows, got it?”

“All three of us together like this reminds me of being back on the island. If we all make it back together, let’s finish that raft of ours!”

“Thinking of you wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows? Starting a new journey may not be so hard. Or maybe, it’s already begun!

And as a whole, she tries so much more in the second game than she ever did in the first (but even there, she did want to go to the final battle to get Riku back. But Sora just refused).

Speaking of the final battle, Kairi does walk into that in KHII… even if she does quickly get thrown out of it. But it’s still progress.

I’m also still convinced that Kairi originally was supposed to be a party member (as there is some evidence to this), and a part of the fights, but they just had to remove it at the last minute. But feel free to ignore this, since it can’t be proven.

ANYWAY, the only thing that kind of destroyed all of this was that Coded and Dream Drop Distance ignored all of this about Kairi, and even seemed to shelf it.

But it’s not too late to bring it back, and make it matter and real again. 

And having her being officially trained under Merlin now, and writing to Sora happily about how maybe now she’ll be able to help, is certainly a good start.

And if Nomura does this… I honestly think Kairi could have some of the best character development in the entire series (and maybe even in any work that I know of, but I’m clearly biased):

Weird to think about with her, I know, but the potential is certainly there. 

It always has been. 

It just needs to be taken somewhere.

People have probably talked about this before, but this thought just hit me:

Ventus and Kairi friendship. VENTUS AND KAIRI FRIENDSHIP!

They both have hearts of pure light (though Ven has artificial pure light, but whatever).

Both of them were targeted by Xehanort’s schemes as children.

They’ve both been in comas…

They’ve both been in Sora’s heart, and were actually canonically there at the same time for a while!

So seriously: Give me all the Ventus and Kairi bonding moments in KHIII.

I even sort of hope that Nomura has Kairi say she’s meant Ven before, in Sora’s heart. We all know he didn’t have BbS planned when making KHI… but honestly? This would be a lie/retcon I’d be more than okay with. Especially if it finally let us know what being inside Sora’s heart was like for Kairi, and what she remembers from it.
