What has always perplexed me is that despite how many times they have proven themselves in the series to have strong hearts and stuck by Sora since day one, they never obtained the power of the Keyblade. It was even mentioned and joked about twice in KH3 as I recall. After all the insurmountable odds they helped Sora conquer such as the Titans, a Greek God, a Kraken, a giant sea witch, a sorceress/dragon, a powerful evil Genie, the Organization members, and multiple forms of Xehanort, you would think at some point they would be granted the power of the Keyblade. Meanwhile Axel and Kairi train for a little while and suddenly they become "masters". That never sat well for me at all. Is there some special qualifications I am not aware of that constitutes you becoming a Keyblade Wielder? I know it wouldn't be the same with Goofy not having his shield and Donald without the wand, but is that really it? It's just purely an aesthetic thing as to why they can't have a Keyblade? Why not let them dual wield? Goofy with a shield in one hand and a Keyblade in the other would look pretty badass actually. What are your thoughts on this?
