Mickey is a badass: CONFIRMED.
This is the very last scene of DDD and is the last time we see Sora. You know what kills me about this. Look at that smile. That’s a not a smile of happiness. That’s a half-assed cover up smile. It looks like he is about to burst out into tears and I don’t blame him. After everything he didn’t become a key-blade master, but Riku did. Granted yes, he is happy for Riku that’s evident, but you can just tell he is devastated even through is smile. I mean can you imagine going through the events of the original KH and everything up to this point and finding out that you didn’t make the cut. That’s like you and your best friend walking up to get your diplomas at graduation and without any prior warning the dean’s hands are empty and he/she tells you that you didn’t graduate only for them to pick up a diploma and happily hand it to your best friend.
You just want to hug and tell Sora it’s going to be alright, but he just disappears into the light. To be honest we don’t know if everything is going to be alright. We have no idea where he is going and what he is about to do. As confusing a story as DDD had it did a great job with this scene and of leaving a great cliff-hanger for KH3.
“After everything he didn’t become a key-blade master, but Riku did. Granted yes, he is happy for Riku that’s evident, but you can just tell he is devastated even through is smile”
He never wanted to be a Keyblade Master. That was clear from the game’s opening. He didn’t think he needed it, that he was strong enough on his own, and it wasn’t until Riku made clear that he wanted to go through the test for his own sake + well being that Sora agreed to do it. The sole reason Sora participated in the test was to support Riku. He’s not secretly devastated that he didn’t become a Master, he’s obliviously happy for Riku because Riku finally accepts himself fully, and realizes that he is loved and perfect just as he is. This is a long struggle for Riku that has taken place over countless games and at every turn Sora is there trying to support Riku.
“I mean can you imagine going through the events of the original KH and everything up to this point and finding out that you didn’t make the cut. ”
You literally just described the plot of KH1. And, in case you forgot, the message at the end was that Sora realized he didn’t need any “special” status or weapon, that he was strong and important and capable of great things because of the people he loved and cared for, and that their bonds were all he really needed.
“We have no idea where he is going and what he is about to do. As confusing a story as DDD had it did a great job with this scene and of leaving a great cliff-hanger for KH3.”
This wasn’t a cliffhanger. We know exactly where he is going and why he is doing it, lol. He’s going back into the Realm of Sleep because he “dozed off” and didn’t get a chance to say goodbye to the Dream Eaters he became friends with. In the post credits scene, we see him in the RoS, where he reunites with his Dream Eaters and he thanks them.
The game ends with Sora deliriously happy, surrounded by his friends, and the only people who are mad or sad about him not becoming a Master is the fandom. Sora couldn’t care less.
I think it’s super naive to think that Sora “couldn’t care less”. As in, I think that it’s so naive that the OP’s exact idea will show up in KH3 as part of the plot.
Really naive. Also a really depressingly shallow idea of Sora’s personality. *~no negativ emote~*
I really never understood the desire of fandom to remove the reality that is human life. There are negatives. There is jealousy. People feel bad about themselves and each other. What is the point of crushing down everything that Sora’s been to down to “and he’s happy and all that bad stuff that happened lol nah”?
Why is that the fandom way to operate? Why can’t you sit in your corner and just play Disney, if you desperate want that 1-D view of people? I like my characters to be involved. People are angry that Sora didn’t become a Master because they are thinking of themselves in his position. Nearly being killed by Riku and his asshole selfishness. Fighting on several different worlds and dealing with being hurt and having things taken from him and losing friends for years and nearly losing his entire sense of self, and then in the end, the boy who has always been better than him is still better than him?
People are angry because it’s a LOGICAL WAY TO BE. Assessments like this one are based on HUMANITY HAVING FEELINGS ABOUT THINGS and there isn’t anything in the canon directly proving them wrong, either!
I’m also really tired of this idea that as long as you can’t prove something happened in canon, it did not happen. Well, then no one ever goes to the bathroom and all kids are adopted because their parents never had sex. See how ridiculous that is? For a video game where the creator has encouraged people to read between the lines and see within it what they’d like, the amount of people sticking their two cents on a bat and beating others with the canon when the absence of evidence is not evidence of absence is getting really old…really fast.
Also I’m confused about ppl who say that Sora “never wanted to be keyblade master”. Like yeah he was iffy in the first one but by 2 he had pretty much sucked up all that UR A HERO and basically spent the whole series fapping to being a keyblade master? And that’s why he was so pissy at the beginning of DDD? Because he was like “bitch i been the master already wtf is u?”
While your response was a little unorthodox haha it was funny but you get what I was trying to convey. He acted like he could care less and I know he stated in kh2 that he knew the Keyblade didn’t choose him that it chose the people he was apart of BUT. He is a human kid. It doesn’t matter whether it he knows it chose him because of Ventus or that he has accepted that is just a part of something greater. He is a human who is upset about not getting the position. It’s probably just a slight disappointment, but he is allowed to feel disappointment none the less. Yen Sid even said “You both deserve the honor”. He didn’t get something he deserved. Any human would feel some sort of disappointment even if it’s happy-go-lucky Sora. Of course he puts Riku before himself, Sora is a super optimist which is great, but he is not a robot programmed to be happy all the time. He does feel negative emotions and I feel as if he did a little in this event. That’s all I was saying.
