She's not an "it"!
- Apr 9, 2007
Very early on I thought that Lightning was going to be in Olympus in KH3. Hades could have tricked her into believing that he could help Serah if she killed the gods of Olympus. Imagine a fight against Lightning with the titans by her side.She would've been the natural pick for Olympus in 3 (after Auron in 2 and Cloud in 1), but alas...
I was going to respond to your post with "That's because they only ever incorporated new FF characters in a new main title and the only one that came out since 2 was 3, which was by the time Nomura was bitter about FF," but I realized that's not true. Zack was in BbS, after all. Which made me think about what FF character could've been utilized in 3D, for example. I thought it would be interesting if Auron had reappeared in that game in the sleeping realm because, having "faded away" at the end of 2, he had either returned to or become a part of the dream world (sort of relating to Zanarkand being the dream of the fayth in FFX). Come to think of it, they could've also included Jecht as a secret boss in the 3D considering he was from the Zanarkand dream in FFX, too.
This may be crazy, but I think FFX version of Tidus (not the KH1 version) could have appeared in KH3D. It could have been Tidus' dream interacting with the dream worlds or something. I think the reason they didn't do FF in KH3D is because they went all out with The World Ends With You - which I loved.
