Everything you need to know about Kingdom Hearts:

These are the main characters:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd5QZrJDV2U&feature=player_embedded#!

Got it memorized?

Some games don't have these guys. Well, they usually have a guy who looks like Sora but not Sora himself. These games are 358/2 Days (Yes that is the name) and Birth By Sleep. Re:Coded doesn't star Sora either, except it does.

This guy is the villain.

It makes even less sense if you play the games.

These are the games:

Kingdom Hearts: Disney Worlds, FF characters, bad camera, semi sensible story.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=371G9tTF-4w

Darkness is the heart's true essence!

Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories: Cards, rehash, Org XIII members dying like flies, Blondes having more fun:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MOqLY8xzF4g&feature=related

PS2 Version opening, the first version is on GBA. Even the opening is a rehash.

Kingdom Hearts II: Shitty FF cameos, good Disney worlds, plot finally falls into itself creating a black hole of Kingdom Hearts ness. Add X to everything to make it sound cooler.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0q4Z5Iik9Oc&feature=related

He's talking about Riku in the beginning. Ignore the girl. Also I hope you like Sanctuary, you'll be hearing it a lot.

Kingdom Hearts:Coded/Re:Coded: It's basically MGS2, only instead of Raiden doing Shadow Moses, Mickey does KH1. Again. Re:Coded was released on the DS and is a lot better.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Dhn0OUSjaMs

Re:Coded intro. Hard to find footage of a cellphone game like Coded, so I went with the DS version. This game actually isn't half bad though few people even know it exists.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days: It's got Roxas! Multiplayer! Sea Salt Ice Cream! It takes place in that crazy area between 1 and 2 and therefore has a ton of retreads like the other game in that area!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8eRPhPOoplE

I hope you like sea salt ice cream and backstory. Mainly sea salt ice cream. Also back to Sanctuary.

Kingdom Hearts Birth By Sleep: 3 in 1, just like the holy trinity. Basically KH Zero, new worlds unlike the rest of the non numbered games. Same plot as Naruto. Surprisingly fun.

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WmSVTJMo1e8

True Story: First time I heard this intro I thought some fan took a trailer and put Simple and Clean over it to make a fake ending. Boy was I wrong!

Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance: NEKU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NnyQWDmYQjw

NEKU, Riku, NEKU, Summon Beast thingee, NEKU, Done by the BBS team so it'll probably be better than KH III, NEKU.

If you don't want to play all these games just go with 1, 2, and BBS. CoM is pretty fun if you like CaRdPGs, and actually does an ok job of explaining the incomprehensible KH2.

Final Mixes: They exist. No you don't get to play them. Well, if you played the western version of KH1 then you played 90% of the first final mix. If you played Re:CoM then you played the bonus game from KH 2 FM. KH 2 FM is amazing, it actually has semi difficult fights and references BBS. No, you can't play it without importing, they didn't release it here because it was too much of a game to release on regular gaijin DVDs.

So play the games with:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd5QZrJDV2U&feature=player_embedded#!

and the one with the same plot as Naruto:

WHAT THIS THREAD IS FOR:

Hearts, Darkness, Celebrity Voice Acting and sound alikes, Shameless Disney Cross Promotion, Lord Nomura's fabulous belt filled artstyle, wishing for TWEWY 2, Light, Lookalikes, Soul tag a longs, Nobodies, Heartless, Pete. Gummy Ships from KH1 can be discussed, but not Final Mix unless Gilder says so.

Also please feel free to post various KH fanart and offical art as this game has some good ones.

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What is Kingdom Hearts?

A: Light. (Action game with Disney and Final Fantasy characters. Light hearted, fairly easy, bad cameras.)

Q: What is the heart's true essense?

A: Darkness.

Q: Who are the main characters?

A: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Vd5QZrJDV2U&feature=player_embedded#! (and Roxas, and latin elemental people from BBS)

Q: Is Birth By Sleep's plot really the same as the one from that shitty anime ninja in the orange tracksuit?

A: Basically. Naruto might make more sense.

Q: Yet you still suggest we play it?

A: Probably the best game in the series.

Q: How many young boys does the main character have inside him?

A: Two at the same time. Three if you count himself.

Q: So your Nobody is your name mixed up with an x added?

A: Yep, I'm Boxx. Or noexreagsforobex.

Q: So why doesn't anyone give a damn about Kairi after KH1?

A: Because Namine is blond Kairi.

Q: Which FF characters did Nomura ruin in KH 2?

A: Setzer, Vivi, Seifer. Auron is immune because he is dead.

    I thought the cellphone game was just Coded, and it was the DS remake that was Re:Coded.

    Is the new trailer that was shown at that 3ds event earlier today up somewhere yet?

    The best thing about KH games are usually the main themes, like Dearly Beloved, though I could say most of the music in the games are all very good. Neku better be a playable character. PIN attacks > Keyblades.

    Coded is cellphone. Re:Coded is the DS port/remake. It's shockingly good for a cellphone port and probably the better of the two DS games.

    Pretty sure that is the new KH trailer.

    Not sure if you're joking about Coded like you are everything else, but it was ported to the DS last January. I suppose that doesn't make it any easier to find footage for it though, it was a pretty low key release.

    EDIT: Well ok then.

    So far there have been two ports, one from cellphone to DS, one from GBA to PS2. Both were spinoffs like BBS.

    KH 3D had better be good considering how much of a step up Birth By Sleep was from the other portable games. Also, Neku. Would not mind if Shiki made a special appearance too.

    I think I'm the only one who cares more about the original story they're trying to tell than the disney stuff, as pathetic as that sounds. It's the only new and interesting plot, because every single disney world is just a 45 minute rehash of the movie. And when you strip away everything but the whole light dark heart story... well you can really see how silly and ridiculous it is.

    Yeah, I don't exactly know what kind of direction they were shooting for with the truncated Disney stories, but they were pretty fun to see when they were executed well. The original stuff they've been putting to the forefront has actually been quite good (see BbS) when it's not being so overly convoluted. I blame Nomura.

    It's basically too late to expect KH III on any current gen system.

    It would fit nicely on the Wii U however.

    Since I only just played through the KH series I'm a little lost here. How is BBS the same plot as Naruto? I have seen the comparison a few times but I just don't get it. The main games have more connections to Naruto for me than BBS ever did. (I actually read Naruto to my shame)

    (Then again. I also don't get how FFXII is any more Star Wars than any other FF Plot so I may just be bad at comprehensing and comparing plots in general)

    TEWEY's story runs circles around KH. I shudder to think of Neku in KH babbling about darkness.

    Yes Neku's a jackass, but he pays for it, over and over until he fixes it. In any other JRPG, he'd be that way to the very end, and he'd have two girls in his party throwing their vaginas at him.
