If Ven didn't look like Roxas there wouldn't be nearly as much attention paid to him now. Since his story like Xion and Riku Replica are rather self contained and clean up nicely, is there any real point of him and by extension Vanitas existing? They just make the X-Blade and goes on to explain why he looks like Roxas. He didn't have to look like Roxas to get our attention. Yes he's canon and has his place in the plot, but according to Nomura how does he matter? Your opinions?
