So I was looking up stuff about the creator of Final Fantasy for reasons and

The Kingdom Hearts series would later go on to feature a character named Master Eraqus, who was designed to physically resemble Sakaguchi and match with Disney’s Yen Sid


FDream : Square featured you in Kingdom Hearts as Master Eraqus, have they discussed it with you? Did you talk about it with Tetsuya Nomura or was it a complete surprise for you?

Hironobu Sakaguchi : *seems confused for a while then goes ohhh!* Is he a good guy or a bad guy?

FFDream : He’s master Eraqus.

Hironobu Sakaguchi : *laughs and smiles all the way* MASTER! Oh good, I was sure he’d be a bad guy. I was vaguely aware of this. I thought I’d be a bad guy because back when I worked with Nomura I canned half of what he showed me. I remember it vividly, I assumed he’d use that opportunity to get his vengeance. If you meet him again tell him I said thanks!


I don’t know why but this makes me smile
