      Huh, so I guess that improvised stance that she did back in KH2 and we saw in that group shot in Kh3D was actually close her normal fight stance. It kind of looks like she's copying Sora a little.

      Maybe now people will shut the hell up about her being useless.

      her hair is a strange thing. it looks absolutely beautiful from some angles and then other angles it's kind of bad.

      it's so relateable actually.

      100% agree on it being relatable. It's like that awkward haircut almost every girl had in middle school. XD I'm trying to like it cuz she mah girl and all, but... I'm not sold on it. >.<

      Well...to be fair, up until now she kinda has been. The most she's really accomplished aside from restoring Sora from being a Heartless in KH1 has been KO'ing a few Shadows in KHII. Which is really a shame, because there's a lot of potential for her that's just been ignored, but hopefully KHIII will finally give her something substantial!

      First off, she was pretty much in a coma for a majority of KHI, so it's not like she could do anything. Secondly, you act like the moment she got her Keyblade in KHII she was supposed to automatically be on the same level as Sora and Riku or even Aqua. Kairi was always a support character and she did her job as one. If you want to talk about useless KH girls, Naminé and Xion are who you should be looking at.

      I feel like I need to start this by saying that I like Kairi. She's a fun and interesting character. The problem is that the games' writers give her very little to do. Of course I don't expect her to start firing off -ga magic or omnislashes the instant she gets her hands on a Keyblade. Battle prowess is not the only measure of usefulness. But you're not actually refuting that Kairi's been largely useless in the series as a whole.

      I think the main problem in this conversation is that we're coming at this from different angles. If I understand you correctly, you think that my criticisms of Kairi are focused on her not doing anything in-universe. But my real issue is with the writers not giving her anything to do. It's been almost seventeen years now since the first KH game came out and in that time, in all the games that have come since, what focus has she gotten as a character?

      Why would the writers give her anything to do in the earlier games? First game was to establish Sora's story. Second game was to expand on the Organization plot. At no point in any of the games before KHIII was there a need to focus on Kairi.
    9. Day~Dream
      I've never really thought of Kairi as useless, but out of genuine curiosity what in your opinion made her not useless (couldn't find a better word >.<) within the amount of screen/game time that was focused on her?
    10. Ability King KK

      The fact of what her role in the story was. It's not like she's there just to be there. She's not like Xion where if you take her out of the story the story would be the same. She might not be in your face like Sora and Riku are, but she's still important.
