Let’s review:
He messes with Sora’s feelings for Kairi even before Destiny Islands is destroyed with that paupu fruit race bet.

He’s willing to trust the word of a Disney villain over his best friend

He adds injury to insult when taking the keyblade by manipulating Donald and Goofy into ditching you.

Until KH2 this little bugger was the bane of my existence and I was honestly disappointed we didn’t leave him a stain on the carpet after the first time ya beat him up in hollow bastion

LOL, yes. You know I was thinking as I was re-playing KH1 a few days back that him being a villain for the most part in that game may be why his design was better in that game. They gave him a look that accented his flashy, show-off, in-your-face personality in that game, whereas he's more hesitant, with more of a quiet confidence, in the post-1 games.

KH1 Riku is probably one of the best examples of the "best friend turned rival" archetype. Sora and Riku feel like friends from start but you can see the places where the cracks eventually form. But said cracks only deepen enough to cause problems because of the extreme circumstances they were facing. The best part is that after their friendship falls apart their relationship actually feels like a "friendship gone sour due to bad influence" instead of them being enemies. Which is why Riku works so hard to fix things in the following games.

I only started to like him CoM, because he was such a jerk to Sora in KH1. Sora could've have died and he didn't care.

Now he's one of my favourite characters in the series. That's how good his development has been, because when I don't like a character I rarely change my mind.
