Or rather he had realized that his body was his own and not Xehanort's heartless' build. That is if you were talking about the cutscene that proceeds AtW death.

^ Oh yeah, that was it. That sort of fits the expression he had more.

Can Riku accually see with his blindhold on or not?
Because in Deep Dive, he fights with his blindfold on, but in a trailer for Days, he pulls his blindfold off to look at Xion.
So can he accually see with it on or not?

I suppose he can see with it on, but if he can't maybe he uses the darkness to sense the enivorment around him or he was good at listening. As for taking a peek out from under his blindfold to look at Xion, I guess he just wanted a closer look.

i belive when he looked at xion it was b/c of shock that she had the keyblade(he was like wtf so he wnated to see it better)
if riku could see (at least somehow, with eyes or "sensing" things) he wouldnt be able to fite
and in deep drive he would have splatted when he jumped off the skyscrapper....

I don't think he can 'cause I remember him mentioning being able to sense Xemnas right before you go up to Naught's Approach and fight him the first time so he's been sensing people instead of seeing them. *nodnod*

Of course, they just didn't see him at first so he could have just been stating.

no "his eyes couldnt lie" since he had sided with darkness his eyes turned orange (w have seen this many a times) and he wanted to hide thus the blindfold

Oh eye color foreshadowing.

This is how I see it (pun, har har):
Riku hides his eyes from others because, as Mickey puts it, his eyes can't lie. He can't meet someone face-to-face and stare them straight in the eye without reliving the shame of what he's become as a result of what he had done.

As for whether or not he can see, of course he can't. That would be incredibly stupid and contradict the point of him even wearing it.
So how does he fight?
He has other senses to use, particularly his sense of "smell." As shown in CoM, he has that capability of feeling the alignment of another being.

In Days we see him take off the blindfold and he has his usual eyes, so no. Though, to be honest, I think they missed a perfect opportunity with that.

EDIT: 70% say yes?

Where are you?
I wonder if he can "see" like Toph, by feeling vibrations.
But i think he mostly goes by his sense of "smell"

The darkness give people super natural abilities, I was under the impression that his senses were so highly tunned, that he didn't need to see. I remember in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories that Riku developed the ability to detect oders or scents and presences given off. My guess is that Riku used that highly developed sense to determine who people were and where they were. Like was mentioned earlier, the blindfold was used as a means to hold back the darkness slipping out. He had relied too strongly on the darkness of Xehanort's heartless residing in his heart, that he had to suppress it. Once he took off the blindfold, Xehanort's Heartless would emerge.

Though it was heavily implied by what Mickey stated. "His eyes couldn't like." Either we misunderstood what Mickey was talking about, or Riku's eyes only change at the moment in which the darkness come rushing out. Either way, we haven't seen the truth for ourselves, although we know from Birth By Sleep, that something was up, as Terra's eyes went from blue to yellow, hinting that he perhaps drew upon the power of darkness, as heartless eye are usually a yellow color, and heartless are considered the darkness in people's hearts.
