So my brother and I realized that you can divide just about any Jrpg protag into one of two groups which we decided to call Sora and Riku
Riku: The reserved, “cool” guy. Usually this is accomplished by the character being either quiet, brooding, an asshole or some combination of those things. Whether or not they actually are cool is irrelevant Ie wannabes count
Sora: The outgoing, happy-go-lucky. The always smiling do goer who never lets anything get them down. Makes friends super easily and may or may not be a goofball.
I mean granted Sora and Riku aren’t the epitome of these archetypes but damn if they aren’t good examples.
