Random Kingdom Hearts Trivia to Know

  1. Ariel was originally meant to be a Princess of Heart, but in order for this to happen she needed to be captured by Maleficent – and this meant that Ursula needed to give Ariel her legs. To make this happen in the story, Ariel would have had to be introduced into Kingdom Hearts already progressed in her story to the point where she had legs. The series was too far into production though to add this. Because of this the producers ended up choosing Alice to be a Princess of Heart.

  2. Sora’s role in the series as the protagonist was originally not something that Disney wanted to do. Disney apparently wanted Donald Duck to be the protagonist, but Testuya Nomura (the series creator) wanted an original human protagonist. It was said that Nomura wasn’t interesting in making someone else’s idea and wanted to make something unique.

  3. Kingdom Hearts producer Shinji Hashimoto is to thank for the series being created, due to him meeting with a Disney executive in an elevator. Tetsuya Nomura, at a panel for the D23 Disney fan club convention in 2017 explained, “The Square Enix Japan office happened to be in the same building where Disney’s gaming division was. It just so happened that our executive producer, Mr Shinji Hashimoto, and a Disney executive rode the elevator together. They would have conversations saying, ‘Wouldn’t it be nice for us to do something collaborative?’ So rather than having either Square Enix or Disney approach the other with a formal business plan, it was all down to being in the same building.”

  4. The Final Fantasy characters were added in so that original characters didn’t need to be created for minor parts in the game.

  5. The Deep Jungle world only appears in the first Kingdom Hearts game as Square Enix did not renew their license for it after the first game was completed. The rights to the original Tarzan are owned by the Edgar Rice Burroughs’ estate. Disney secured animated film rights from the estate for Tarzan back in the 90s, and therefore are allowed to do what they want with their own version of Tarzan. As Square Enix is a separate company to Disney though they most likely would have had to get permission from the Edgar Rice Burrough’s estate for a license to Tarzan. It was never revealed why Square Enix did not renew their license for Tarzan after the Kingdom Hearts game was released.

So as you probably would have seen, Matt and bookishnerdygirl have made posts over the past hours about Kingdom Hearts! And that’s because there’s a lot going on in the KH news department at the moment 🙂

Square Enix’s Kingdom Hearts III was finally given a release date of 29th January 2019! And not only that, but at E3 three trailers for the game were released too!!! We already knew that Monsters Inc and Big Hero 6 were being added as new worlds into the game, but in the trailers we also get to see Frozen, Tangled and Toy Story! The trailers also contain some gameplay, some parts of cutscenes and more!

That scene in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days where Xaldin tells Roxas that love never lasts and is practically useless is still one of my favourite scenes… I don’t know why but I find that scene hilarious…

That scene in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days where Xaldin tells Roxas that love never lasts and is practically useless is still one of my favourite scenes… I don’t know why but I find that scene hilarious…

  1. Xenmas

    Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 11.11.03 pm.png
    Xemnas was actually the last member of Organisation XIII to receive an English translation of his title

  2. Xigbar

    In the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts II, his arrow guns can be combined together to form a sniper with perfect accuracy. However, in the English version Xigbar can’t combine the guns (but he can use one gun to balance the other which pretty much has the same effect as the sniper). The rifle ‘’sight’ is also different in each version of the game

  3. Xaldin

    Xaldin writes in the Secret Reports that he wants a heart so that he can do what only people with hearts can do – not because he wants to be able to feel emotion

  4. Vexen

    Vexen’s cloak is the longest out of all the Organisation XIII members, reaching down to cover his boots

  5. Lexaeus

    Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 11.22.22 pm.png
    Lexaeus only trusts Zexion. Everyone else he doesn’t trust – saying that they are all hiding secrets from each other. He is patricianly suspicious of Axel because he believes that no-one can ever tell what Axel is really thinking

  6. Zexion

    Zexion was never going to be seen in combat, which meant that we also didn’t know what his weapon was. In order to keep Zexion’s weapon unknown in The World That Never Was where all the Organisation XIII members had their weapons shown, the creators decided to have Zexion’s gravestone destroyed. However, it was in Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix that we ended up getting to find out that Zexion’s weapon is a the Lexicon

  7. Saix

    Saix’s berserk ability could be a reference to quite a few things… It could refer to the belief that the moon causes madness, the belief that the moon can affect someone’s mood, refer to the legend of werewolves or it could even refer to the tales of the berserker warriors of the Norse…

  8. Axel

    Axel is actually the first character to technically curse. He says “hell” in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (from when he says, “It’s about time you give me one hell of a show!”) But then in  Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, this line was changed to, “Try and make it enjoyable, Sora. It’s the least you can do for me, you know”

  9. Demyx

    When viewing Demyx’s character model in Jiminy’s Journal, Demyx does not blink. In fact, he is the only member of Organisation XIII to not blink in the journal

  10. Luxord

    Most of Luxord’s decks are named after the Major Arcana of tarot cards. However, Luxord doesn’t use “Wheel of Fortune” or “Judgment” in his deck. In their place are the cards “The Joker” and “Fair Game” (which are cards from normal playing cards)

  11. Marluxia

    Marluxia was originally planned to be female. But the creators ultimately decided to make Marluxia male in order to prevent having both traitors be female

  12. Larxene

    Larxene’s knives are often thought to be Kunai by fans, but… her knives are actually called Foudre (which apparently means “lightning” in French!)

  13. Roxas

    Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 11.27.17 pm.png
    Roxas has shoes named after him. Airwalk has designed a shoe called the Roxas Dot after him. (There is also a model named after Demyx.)

  14. Xion

    Xion’s hair colour is black because Tomoco Kanemaki (the writer of the Kingdom Hearts novels and one of the scenario writers for the series) wanted a girl character with black hair – and his request ended up being fulfilled. Kanemaki also helped come up with Xion’s name! Her name was well-liked by the creators because it has many meanings such as ‘tide’ (which relates to the Kairi and Namine’s name meanings) or can also refer to the flower known as the ‘aster tataricus’ (and when a person presents this flower to another, the meaning behind the act is to tell the receiver of the gift that “I won’t forget you”)
