I hope this post finds you in good health! This has been a terribly long month of quarantine, and I seriously can’t wait for all of this to be over. In the mean time, I’ve got another quote for you! I know I did a Kingdom Hearts quote last time, but I just can’t help myself to bring this one to light since it’s one of my favorites! Take a look!
“Tell me first, why are you dressed like one of us?”
“So my best friend…sleeps in peace.”
– Xion and Riku (Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days)
Can we just applaud the amount of character development Riku went through? I’d go as far as saying that out of any character in Kingdom Hearts, he had the most development. He has matured SO MUCH since the first game, and it is amazing to see how much a character can change! His trials shaped him to be who he is today. We’ve seen him struggle, but he rose above it all and came out of it wiser than before. 358/2 Days was one of his darker times. He had to walk on the edge of darkness to make sure Sora woke up after getting his memories all fixed up by Namine. To protect himself, he wore the black coat that the members of Organization 13 wore, not to mention a blindfold to cover his eyes from the darkness. He literally trained himself to fight with a blindfold on! I don’t know about you, but Riku is definitely my favorite Kingdom Hearts character!
What do you think about this quote? Are you a Riku fan? Let me know in the comments below! Have a good week and God bless!
