Welcome to my unpopular opinions.
Yeah I consider myself a rare specimen in this fanbase.
Lol glorious isn't it? This is why CoM is in my top 3 KH games.
The Effects Of Using Zantetsuken a little too much.
Once he loses something important that is.
What are your thoughts about this?
Can't agree with you more. I also felt like the Disney worlds were a lot more relevant in the first game when compared to all the other games in the series. I mean I'm all for Square Enix original characters but I feel like the more they introduce them the more some characters (like Kairi) don't get the attention that they deserve & others like (Sora) just become exaggerated personas of what they used to be (like the more SEO characters there are the more the writers want to show how incompetent or dumb Sora is in comparison). But that is just me.
However, maybe they just might return to that way of storytelling after KH3 when the Xehanort sage ends? Possibly.
What concepts from original game do you miss (& may want to return in future games) from the first Kingdom Hearts game?
Gotta love that Jafar Card.
I guess Roxas, Donald, and Goofy aren't too important for the list.
Also should Riku-Ansem be counted?
Topic title says it all and to make it interesting:
Let's count No Heart, Xigbar, and Saix.
Chaotic Neutral seems to be the one.
This means that they are the ultimate free spirit and they do things just for the heck of it. Just like Chaotic Evil however, they don't have a particular allegiance to good OR evil. The two examples we have are Pete and Axel. Pete I really don't understand because the dude is obviously aligned with Maleficent. The only time Pete actually does breaks his standard allegiance is when both he and Maleficent defeat the enemies pursuing Sora, Riku and the gang when they are about to fight Xemnas.
Axel on the other hand I think is a pretty good example. In CoM at he was aligned with the Floor Trio then he released Namine, killed Vexen, and got into a fight with Marluxia (and was even willing to kill Namine in said fight despite the fact he released her). Then in Riku's story he was apparently aligned with the Basement Trio but like he killed Vexen AND had the Replica get rid of Zexen as well. We later learn however that he was teamed up with the Organization (who wasn't in the castle) and Saix.
However, despite having an "allegiance" with them he still betrays the Organization several times throughout KHII. This is because he kidnaps Kairi, messes with Sora throughout his adventure, and sacrifices himself at the end of the game so that Sora could break through their ranks. Plus, even though he did try capturing Roxas because they ordered him too he only did it because he wanted to Roxas as well.
I see why you think Ansem SoD is neutral evil. You think that SoD strikes a good balance between wanting darkness for everything and aiding Riku. Because of this he balances out being Chaotic as well as Lawful.
However, if I recall in Chain of Memories I was always thought it was DiZ helping out Riku most of the time in the game. Because not only does is he the "Voice" for Riku but he also impersonated Ansem (which is kind of funny) several times throughout the game as well. Such as when you fight Ansem in the beginning of the game or when you go to Twilight Town. This kind of discredits the idea of Ansem actually helping Riku throughout most of the game.
Plus, when you said "so is more like he doesn't know better?" That sounds like Chaotic Evil because they are in fact more of a destructive force who doesn't know any better like the Heartless. Which Ansem SoD is.
Lol I almost forgot about that. So what would classify him as or who would make a better example for Lawful Good? Because I really don't see Donald as the poster child for that.
On a side note, I think Vanitas is a bit more Chaotic Evil than Ansem SoD despite the fact he worked for MX.
Alright now what do you think about Master Eraqus being classified as Lawful Good?
I knew you were going to say the Heartless. That reasoning also made me think that Ansem SoD should have been classified more so as being Chaotic Evil.
I forgot that Ansem SoD is working for MX now. However, he was interpreted in KH and CoM he seemed more Chaotic Evil so I agree that if he were a standalone character he would be more Chaotic Evil.
So who in Kingdom Hearts would make a better representation of Chaotic Evil?
On a side note I still think Saix is better representation of Lawful Evil.
Exactly! MX maybe evil however he has a sort of technique or strategy to his madness.
Now what do you think about Ansem SoD as being Chaotic Evil?
Well this isn't even mine. I just found on this on Google.
As for the lawful neutral. I think they are classifying how Roxas felt when he was JUST in the Organization. Lawful Neutral means they always put the law before their own personal matters. Even though Roxas did not feel too comfortable working for the Organization at the end of the day he always did his job.
Xion I don't think would fit better because she was the main reason why Roxas defected. Roxas would have still been lawful neutral if it wasn't for her. Plus, where as Roxas was sort of content with his situation Xion actually went on and did something about it.
As for Xehanort thing. I agree with Xemnas but I see Ansem as being more chaotic than Xehanort because dude was actually a Heartless and it wanted to drown anything and everything in darkness. Master Xehanort is a COMBINATION of Ansem and Xemnas so he has shades of being both Lawful and Chaotic. So he is more neutral evil to me.
Now that I think about it Saix is WAY more fitted to lawful evil than Xemnas. Kingdom Hearts is also good for being True Neutral. I still think Axel is better for Chaotic Neutral (especially in Chain of Memories.) and Master Xehanort is still Neutral Evil to me. Other than that great list.
Lawful Good implies that they 90% of the time they follow the law in order to pursue the greater good. Good examples would be like Coby or Smoker from One Piece or Wynne from Dragon Age.
Sora is Good but I don't really see him following the law most of the time. I mean most of the worlds he went he had to break the rules of that world in order to pursue the greater good. Wonderland is a great example of this.
Neutral Good implies he follows the law 50% of the time in order to pursue the greater good.
As for Riku I really don't know...
