So I was watching my friend Riordan playing Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix
last night. He was wiped out during a boss fight and had the option to get
Mickey’s help—but he chose to restart the fight instead.
Which got me thinking… Imagine you’re Mickey Mouse and for whatever
reason you happen upon a climactic battle between your anime protag friend and
a cheap tough enemy. You’re waiting for your chance to make the most dramatic
entrance possible an opening to strike… only for your friend to lose the will
to live and quit life—more likely than
not out of spite.
Absent Silhouettes, presences of those who were slain. Exactly, though they come in all different shapes and sizes. The item belongs to its owner, who is now nothing more than a shadowy presence. But you can still fight them, of course. And as you do, it’ll slowly awaken the real you.
