poppet
small human figure used in witchcraft and sorcery
Anyone else realize how Xigbar calling Xion "poppet" could refer to her not being real and used for completing Kingdom Hearts (witchcraft?) for the Organization.

To be honest,
I think he meant poppet = puppet
Like how in POTC Pintel goes: "Ello Poppet" to Elizabeth

Yes, it is an old phrase. Which is why it seems nothing special but it just seemed like a bit of foreshadowing to me.

Xigbar called Xion Puu-chan, which I believe means "doll".
So "poppet" could be foreshadowing, I suppose.

Using that logic, Elizabeth Swan isn't real.

. . .

'Tis be true. I guess it was a mesh of two ideas I had in mind.
It didn't really come out the way I wanted it to :embarassed:

I remember laughing to myself around the time they state that Xion was a puppet, looking back at how Xigbar always called her poppet. It's nice in the way that he calls her a puppet indirectly, in a way that you wouldn't even think of unless you knew she was a puppet. xD

Poppet can be used in different ways, and, technically, Elizabeth Swan isn't real. :D

I think he was basicly calling her a puppet, since he doesn't have the whole british accent like Luxord.

[Plus he was one of the few that knew Xion was a replica

1) Technically speaking, Elizabeth Swann is a made up character, i.e. not real :D

2) Fuck you Roxas is a tiger.

3) I actually like this idea of foreshadowing. It definitely seems like something square would do. And yeah, I never really saw Xigbar using phrases like this, but hey, it works.

Xigbar also called Roxas a kiddo, which Roxas actually is. XD He called Roxas tiger, like once. So that don't count. c:

I always thought there was a connection. Poppet and puppet sound too close together to be a coincidence. =)

It was foreshadow, he called her poppet as a joke, making fun of her almost.

Oh, and Elizabeth swan could be seen as a puppet, they WERE using her in the first movie. it's a cute name to give to a girl, it's old fashioned.

Poppet is also a British term of endearment for younger women, generally.

Xigbar calls her “Puu-chan”, which comes from the French word “Poupee”, meaning doll.

Nomura said in one of the interviews he requested the writers to have Xigbar call Xion by a petname which parodied "doll". Poppet being the old term for "Puppet" was how they translated it.
