To elaborate on this a bit, this seems to not just be good timing/themeing but a reflection of the truth of the plot.Isn't it so perfect that the virtual Daybreak Town is glitching out and collapsing right before the game's about to be shut down?
Yea not sure yet if its been confirmed when or exactly where xehanort was born. If dark road story ends when khux story ends the stories are probably gonna line up at that pointNot unless it's revealed he was actually from the Chi era who was sent from the past to Destiny Islands. Which I hope isn't the case
Hmm... No Name having one of MoM's literal eyes in it might be the reason. They all received their own keyblades from him and he was their Master. And it would mean the contents of the box could be more exciting still than random effects of the Foretellers. Besides, what would those objects be?I mean I get why the MoM keyblade is HIS medium - but why would it be the medium for any of the other foretellers? I don't imagine they had contact with or any meaningful connection to the MoM's keyblade? Just seems weird.
There should be something in that box that is relevant to each of those foretellers, based on how this has worked so far. Maleficent's coat + someone who remembered her.
Now that you phrase it like that, I suppose it makes the abrupt end of Union Cross all the more intentional.Isn't it so perfect that the virtual Daybreak Town is glitching out and collapsing right before the game's about to be shut down?
There's a lot in this update that I love.
This makes alot of sense and goes along with this other theory i saw somewhere that i really like. So the foretellers are named after the 7 deadly sins, and the one not accounted for is pride...which easily could be the Master. Going along with that idea. Lucifer in the bible had an issue with pride. He believed that he was better than God, and so that led to his rebellion. There are obviously arguments that can be made that MOM is a warrior of light..but so was lucifer. I think the most damaging thing to the MOM of being a good guy is the end of the secret video where he makes the heart hands. In that moment I think it's very clear the MOM has plans that involve Kingdom Hearts. If Kingdom Hearts is "God" in this situation, you could make the argument that the Master wants to surpass that role believing that he is better than KH. So if darkness is a security force, it would need to go to make the path to the prize easier. I just don't see a good guy making the heart hands like that who had good intentions in mind. Side note maybe in order to really harness whatever power the MOM is after HE can't be the one to summon it?Honestly the more I read and think about it the more I think Darkness isn't actually the bad guy here. Something that has been bothering me, why does darkness react so strongly with protection? When people want to protect others that's when we tend to see people most easily be consumed by their own darkness. When things fall into sleep the darkness tries to protect them, an entire species of creatures called the dream eaters exists in two forms one to keep sleep going forever the other to protect the sleeper. As said a couple times in this series sleep is often equated to protection, a type of safety where you are alone but shielded from the outside. Even in DDD when Ansem the Wise recounts the hearts that fell into the darkness of Sora's heart he says that some were trapped there but others were welcomed into its warmth. For such a vicious force darkness gets associated with warmth, protection, security, etc....
So now what about Darkness? Well think about the keyblade war according to legend it all began when people of the light grew greedy for kingdom hearts and began to fight over it and then darkness was born in their hearts. The MoM said the original keyblade war was fought between people of the light and beings of darkness which makes it sound like a battle of good and evil, yet according to the legend the entire fight began from greed. So what if darkness is nature's defense mechanism. What if the people of the light were the greedy and evil ones, of which MoM is the last of, and the darkness was born to stop them. What if the original events went something like this...
People of the light greedy for the light fought over kingdom hearts and in the process they shattered the X-blade, the counterpart to kingdom hearts which exists to safeguard it. The blade split into two halves, light and darkness, and further into 7 lights and 13 darknesses. Maybe that's where Darkness first truly came from. The original Darknesses might have been the 13 hearts of darkness that came from the X-blade, and they still retain their desire/purpose to protect kingdom hearts from the greedy people of light. Likewise maybe the 7 lights are also retained a desire to protect but manifested that in a different way, as long as they exist they prevent light from vanishing. In essence it's a two prong defense one keeps light from vanishes the other seeks to take out any who would claim the light for themselves.
We don't know how the war ended up but in the end I think maybe Darkness won, they stopped the light from taking Kingdom Hearts and peace was brought to the world. But the darkness is unbalanced it didn't stop with the war, it continued to infect and spread silently, swallowing and imprisoning all the light it could not for evil but to protect it. So it's a slow growing plague and yes that makes it a negative but in a sense that also means it's the security system. As long as it exists kingdom hearts is lost and the world is on a course for destruction, but at the same time kingdom hearts is out of the reach of those who would abuse it and the 7 pure lights ensure the world will never truly cease to be. It's a broken messed up balance but a balance none the less, one which protects kingdom hearts from greedy people.
Thus the MoM trying to destroy darkness may not be a beneficial thing. On one hand he be taking out this plague that has kept the world in a cycle of destruction but on the other hand if this is nature's way of protecting kingdom hearts then he's removing the obstacles that stopped the people of light from claiming kingdom hearts in the very first war. In other words he might want to destroy the security system not because it's a broken messed up system, but because its still functional enough that it blocks his way to the prize. Darkness may be an antagonistic force but the MoM is the real threat and destroying Darkness would just remove the barricade in his way.
The Master is definitely prideful in other ways too: he misleadingly presents himself as the origin of the Keyblades and the beginning of this whole story, and when he does acknowledge the fact that there were other Keyblade wielders before him, he says that he was the only one that matters.
More than Lucifer, I wonder if the Master might be considered a demiurgic figure... that's a pretty huge rabbit hole, actually.
Newest update sure implies that it's his actual eye, and Darkness says that he "came to this world just to destroy it?" implying that he's also alien to Daybreak Town. He seems to have a friendly (?) relationship with Darkness despite always wearing his darkness warding (leather) cloak. Thinking about KH always leads me back to FF3 for some reason, in which Darkness is not actually evil, and neither is Light but both have caused destruction in each other's realm. MoM seems to want to stave off Darkness in the Realm of Light, but has a very outside perspective of the world where even though he's intimately connected with everything he's also very detached from people and matters in general. He's almost too cool about everything, and it goes beyond just being able to tell some of the future; He says multiple times that he's bored and I can believe him.And if No Name really does have his actual eye, then he's clearly not human, because in no way does that look like a typical human eye.
