While my friend David looked at some Disney worlds he’d love to see fit into the Kingdom Hearts 3 universe, I feel he’s neglected some great characters that I hope to see make an appearance. This doesn’t include characters that have already made an appearance or have their own worlds. While we haven’t seen a Final Fantasy world per-say, with the 30th anniversary of the series upon us and remakes of classics releasing, I think there are some memorable character’s that deserve to be thrown into the mix with Sora, Donald, and Goofy.
Noctis, Prompto, Gladio and Ignis – Final Fantasy XV
If there’s a crew that I’d love to see in KH3, it’s these four. Seeing as they were the best part of Final Fantasy XV, it only fits that they would in some form make their way into KH3. Noctis and friends share the same friendly sentiments that Sora, Donald and Goofy share. They keep each other in line and alive, and they’ve shown the true power of friendship. It’s what both stories were all about. Maybe they would be seen in a new hub world, or find themselves in a World of Final Fantasy chibi style, helping give Sora and friends guidance. If anyone knows responsibility the way Sora does, it’s these guys.
Reynn and Lann – World of Final Fantasy
Speaking of World of Final Fantasy, these twins who were the center of that game easily reflect Sora and the game, and would be the perfect summons from a Final Fantasy stand point. They were the entrance into Final Fantasy just as Sora was to the world of Kingdom Hearts. Plus, he’s an adorable summon in World of FF so it’s only fair for these twins to return the favor.
Lightning and Snow – Final Fantasy XIII
These characters have been everywhere, from fashion campaigns and more. Lightning at this point is iconic and seeing her in a new adventure as the stoic hero to help Sora along is something I’d love to see. I mean, she spawned a few sequels of her own, there’s no reason her and Snow couldn’t help the KH crew on their way.
Milo Thatch – Atlantis: The Lost Empire
One of my favorite Disney heroes, Milo is the unassuming good guy. The guy with the brains and the empathy to make a difference. He’s got a moral compass set to good and helping Sora would be his first priority. Plus, seeing Milo means we might see Princess Kida.
The Triplets – Brave
These rambunctious kids are the clever children that make life really hard for everyone else. The perfect summons, calling on these three will really turn the tides of any battle if they came as a summon. Plus, they’d be adorable.
Yzma & Kronk – The Emperor’s New Groove
It was brought to my attention that Yzma would make a great KH villain, and I couldn’t agree more. The potential for her to cause problems for Sora (and probably the other villains) can create for some great comedic moments in the game. Just imagine Yzma and Kronk showing up at the most inopportune moments as you travel, and tell me it wouldn’t be perfection.
Final Fantasy Classic Summons – Final Fantasy Series
Yes, I know that the summons in the KH series have been designated for Disney characters, but imagine how cool it’d be to see Shiva, Ramuh and Ifrit come down to help Sora, Donald and Goofy. They could take a ton of different forms, from FFX to World of FF, and FFXV. Imagine Sora summoning a Diamond Dust from Shiva!
Todd & Copper – Fox and the Hound
Continuing on the Summons train, these two were the original best friends of Disney. Imagine being able to summon these two adorable creatures that embody friendship to the best extent.
Terra Branford – Final Fantasy VI
With her resolve vowing to make the world a better place for children, Terra is strong and represents the light. With parallels to other KH characters with brain washing and mental enslavement in her past, she continues to fight for the light. She could guide the way for the trio in some other world.
Zidane Tribal – Final Fantasy IX
Laid-back, yet always ready to help a friend, Zidane is a fun character who hasn’t made his way to the KH universe yet. Though he’s a bit of a skirt-chaser, he is always there to provide aid in whatever way he can. He’d be somewhat of a big brother figure to Sora for sure.
There are a few others that I’d love to see, including Fran and Balthier from FFXII, Tiana from The Princess and the Frog, and the characters of Treasure Planet. But those can be incorporated in worlds, and there’s a great article you can check out HERE about what worlds we’d love to see in Kingdom Hearts 3.
