Hey guys! We’re back to another Monday, and that means another quote! Continuing with the Kingdom Hearts theme, I decided to take one from my favorite game in the series, Kingdom Hearts II! Take a look!
If the world is made of light and darkness…we’ll be the darkness.” – Riku (Kingdom Hearts II)
Riku’s character development is a true work of art, in my opinion. I’d even say that he got the most development compared to all the other characters, since he is the focus a lot of times. But yet, I still think there is a lot more to see with him. At the end of Kingdom Hearts II, Riku and Sora defeat Xemnas together, but get trapped in the Realm of Darkness. It’s one of my most favorite scenes in the entire series, because of how they didn’t fall into despair. In fact, they accepted their fate. Riku was a character who started out already trapped in darkness, but we got to see just how far he came after the first game and Chain of Memories in this scene. He still had a long way to go, but he was beginning to accept that he was light and darkness combined.
What do you think of this quote? How do you feel about Riku’s character development? Let me know in the comments below!
As always, God bless y’all and have a wonderful week!
