KHU Roundtable #2 – Does Kingdom Hearts have Gender Issues? (Part 2) » khuxion

Xion is perhaps one of Kingdom Hearts' most complex characters--and that's saying a lot when you're amongst the likes of Roxas, Ventus, and Namine. Is she ultimately a stereotype of the Japanese idea of women or is she an androgynous placeholder for the viewer? Either way, her role is more about connections than action.
