The Top Ten Most Awkward Keyblades

One of the best rewards of a Kingdom Hearts game after every world completion is gaining a new, more powerful keyblade. It’s the most important customization for Sora and the one that requires the least amount of thinking. A few menu presses and you can benefit hugely from a keyblade that gives you a longer reach, like the Jungle Key, or one that infuses great strength, like the Metal Chocobo. Then there are those conflicting moments when I would rather equip a less powerful weapon than subject Sora to handling something that is terribly ugly.

Kristopher Moore is a returning guest who offers us his rant on what went wrong with some of the keyblade designs. This week, it’s purely about looks.

The Villains Special Part II: The not-so-villainous Villains

In Part 2 of our Villains series, we look at more of Sora’s antagonists in Kingdom Hearts. Not all villains are made equal of course, and there are some rather unimposing ones to be found in the series–different strokes for different folks. Sakuchan looks at two more villains featured in the games, who may be less threatening than expected.

This is the second part of a series. Make sure to come back for more in the coming weeks!

The Villains Special Part I: The not-so-villainous Villains

Villains are fun, and evil. Perhaps they’re fun because they’re so evil. For better or for worse, there are villains who don’t quite snarl at us, set exploding trip lines in our paths or act very…well, villainous. Everyone’s standard of how evil a villain should be is different, and changes from time to time, but maybe, this one time, we might agree on the personalities of villains who are lower in the food chain of evil. This is the first part of a series, where Sakuchan shows you the metaphorical dark side of the moon, and in this case, we find that it’s not very dark at all.

Your favourited/hated XIII members: Poll results

The week before last, we opened up the voting floor for you, our readers, to tell us who you hate and who you love within Organization XIII. We received loads of insightful and oftentimes, humorous comments. Now we have the results here. Twelve members to choose from, six made the cut. Who did you feel worthy of being a fan favourite, and who deserves the hammer of hate?

Growing up in Kingdom Hearts

Sometimes it’s cherishing friendships, sometimes it’s being responsible for your actions, and other times, it’s attaining wisdom beyond your years. Maturity comes in many different forms, and this week, Arcane discusses the hardship, trials and tribulation of attaining maturity for characters in Kingdom Hearts.

Every Monday, we publish a Guest Blog post on the Kingdom Hearts series, written by a member of our community. Get in touch with us if you want to be involved.
