Another thing I'm curious about in the KH3 manga, Riku Replica. How will they tackle that since he didn't die in the COM manga? Riku just kinda ignores his Replica when they meet. How will they do the Dark Riku twist here?

That's a good question.

Like, the rest of Repliku's story in CoM never happened in the manga. Once he woke up from the Namine-induced coma he kinda turned into a joke saved for the end of the manga.

Hmm, maybe he won't be time traveled at all? Maybe Dark Riku is just a bitter Repliku? He was still obsessed with Namine at the end so that still remains for his character.

I believe in Amano. He'll probably have had Replica die at the hands of an evil Replica, eliminating the time travel thing but still keeping the whole Replica plot mostly in tact.

Maybe Repliku can just team up with the Guardians of Light and be an honorary member like Donald and Goofy. Since bringing back Namine is one of their goals he may want to help out in any way he can.

The way I see it Amano should either maintain Repliku's living status and have him join the team along with picking up where CoM's manga left off, or kill him offpanel in order to handle Rikuception.

...y'know I just realized...Vexen Replica 44 is probably still hanging out at Castle Oblivion.

So basically SDG and Aqua will run into Vexen 44 when they restore Castle Oblivion? That'd be pretty funny.

I hope they reference Vexen Replica 44. Maybe even have a funny side story of the Vexen Replicas vs the Xehanort Replicas. That would be legendary.

KH3D stuff, though? He’s gonna rip on it so hard because it’s just so ludicrous.
