Going over my issue with the KH1 parallels BBS has, it’s basically the same reason I take issue with the way KH2 handles Roxas/Naminé. It’s riding in the coattails of another relationship.
In order not to spend much time actually establishing how TAV interact with each other and showing us their friendship, they cut corners by repeatedly comparing TAV to SRK.
It’s like they wanted to make TAV as believable as SRK was at the end of the Destiny Islands section, but with that small ass prologue and like one flashback afterwards, both of which had moments that were repeated over and over again throughout the game.
So when they realized that wouldn’t work, they decided to make these KH1 callbacks with “Ven, you sleephead” or “I thought you were stronger than that”. Because if their relationship sounds similar to SRK, than surely that means it’s well-established with little work.
