hm... i like the idea and wouldnt mind it happening but i'd like to see him become light-obsessed or blinded by light like Eraqus was.

Aqua's got a better chance of that happening to her than Sora I think. Although I will be quite shocked if that does happen to him. I think though, that Sora has at least a vague understanding of balance through Riku.

No...Sora is far from being blinded by the light/light-obsessed. At the end of KH2 he practically says he doesn't mind "becoming the Dark" with Riku.

And these are two game mechanics, but the Eternal Session limit during the Dark Cannon part, Sora also sends out dark energy blasts. And Sora has Anti Form as a drive form. Those things don't seem too important, but Nomura wouldn't have let Sora have a dark drive form, or use an attack with Darkness if Sora was a mainly Light --based character.

I can see Aqua being light-obsessed, though. Never know how the RoD affected her...Well, we may find out in BBSv2.

I won't mind if it really happen.
But most probably the one who turn into dark maybe Riku again.

I have to disagree with every here about Sora NOT falling into darkness. Sora has all this hurt built inside him form housing Ven, Roxas and Xion. It may not actually turn Sora evil, but it might be just enough for Sora to at least develop a split personality made of darkness. I call Anti-Sora as Sora's inner darkness BTW. Another option would be for Sora to pull a Kira and lose faith in humanity and end up using darkness to kill the poeple Sora views as evil. Thus, Riku tries to snaps Sora out of it throughout the game.

I think Sora pulling a Kira would work well for KH3D's theme of trust.

I'm sure he WILL have a moral test involving the Darkness, but I doubt he'll succumb to it. Besdies, Anti-Sora was a one-time boss from KH2. Your'e probably thinking of Anti-Form. Though he LOOKS like Anti-Sora in this form, I doubt they'll revisit that boss again. Especially since Sora's Heartless was fought in KH: Re Coded. They've milked the whole "evil clone of Sora" thing so many times.

Besides, He's the prime example of the hero without temptation, staying true to himself all that jazz.

As far as the split personality goes, I agree. I'm sure that since Sora has Ventus's Heart within him (as of BBS) Vanitas will probably resurrect himself from Sora's Darkness (Since him and Ven are basically two parts of one whole: namely Ven's Heart) and him and Sora will enter into an Awakening battle with him similar to Ven's. (Especially since the KH series is fond of "mirroring" scenes from it's past games. Read: Riku/Roxas TWTNW building scene vs. Xemnas/Sora TWTNW Building scene. Or Aqua/Terranort's final battle and Sora and/XH's final battle)

But no, I doubt he'll become this stone-cold Dark killer. He's the series' main hero. He'll triumph against all possible odds like in every cliche story. They won't turn him evil. Though if they DO decide to resurrect Vanitas, it could make for an interesting gameplay element. Maybe playing as Vanitas VIA a "Dark Form" similar to Riku's in Re: CoM?

Lol I'm going to quote myself from this very same thread as my response to you both since I'm too lazy to write a new post:

When I think of Sora falling into the Darkness, I think of it more as Sora facing his own inner-Darkness and trying to defeat it. I don't think he'd go dark or evil and Riku would have to stop him, but rather Sora would spend time trying to overcome his emotions.

Somebody said that Sora has gotten past his anger and sadness pretty well, but I have to disagree. It was more like he pushed it aside to stay positive. He hasn't faced any of his anger head-on, and his sadness has been partially dealt with because he found his friends, who were the source of his sadness. Even so, there would still be lingering bits of that anger and sadness. It just doesn't go away like nothing. It sits and festers until it all comes out.

Maybe this is me theorizing, but if the theme of the game is trust, talks about "when light and darkness stand beside each other, light falls to darkness", Nomura's quote of "a Sora that falls, a Riku that flies", then I think Sora will probably have to learn how to trust in himself, and trust that Riku won't leave again. A big event like that had to affect Sora in some way, and what better way for that to be shown than facing his own inner Darkness--his doubts and fears and anger and hatred.

I guess I'll say some extra. I don't think we'll dight Sora's Darkness like an Anti-Sora or a Dark Side or anything like that, but I can see something similar...

I could see him start dealing with anger and sadness in his emotions, but he would stop himself before things got too far.

I have an idea for a scenario:

Something bad could happen to Kairi and/or Riku....and then all of the emotional buildup crashes out, so he snaps and vows revenge on everyone responsible to the point of murdering every suspect.

Kind of like how Jack Bauer was in the last six episodes of 24.

I can't really see it, as he would just pull a Ventus and ask Riku to "put an end to him" when Sora realized he was falling.

Maybe it's a tad weird that I'm almost waiting for it to happen? It doesn't have to be anything permanent but when it comes down to it, Sora doesn't really deal with negativity. He just kind of...denies it. Donald and Goofy don't really help they just say "no sad faces". But poor Sora's been through a lot and it seems like he's not allowed to angst that much whereas Riku is allowed to be as moody as the hell he wants.

Doesn't sound impossible to me, considering what Nomura said about "a Sora that falls and a Riku that flies."

This makes it sound like Riku and Sora have some sort of opposing relationship, like one must be light and one must be dark. So a dark Sora would create a light Riku... :/

Alternatively, that quotation could just not be relating to light and dark in the first place. Maybe Sora dropping has to do with the title (Dream Drop Distance) and how Sora "drops" into... his heart? His memories? Meanwhile, Riku gains the ability to fly.

... yeah, I dunno. But to respond to the topic, I don't think Sora would fall into darkness, unless it was intentional. But even then, Sora's heart is different than Riku's, and I bet that even if Sora was capable of falling into darkness, he would handle it differently than Riku did. Regardless, I see it as unlikely--Sora's supposed to be the good-hearted one who always chooses the light.

I don't think Sora will ever just fall into darkness of his own accord. However, I believe it is possible that he could turn much darker as the result of something else's effect on him. Like, if Vanitas somehow made his way into Sora's heart, I could see Sora getting darker as a result and having to fight off Vanitas' influence. Or, if Sora traveled into his own heart (or dreams :))and his darkness somehow manifested itself in him, I could see that swaying his actions to be more dark. But I don't think Sora will ever just straight up choose darkness. Riku already did that, so not only would it be repetitive, it would ruin Sora's character as the perfect hero.

This it what I think. I think Sora may turn darker over stress and frustration, but I don't think it would get to the point where he falls to darkness. And of course he wouldn't choose it either, that's just OOC.
