“My friends are my power. And I am theirs.”
Bonds are a big deal in Kingdom Hearts. Bonds between characters—be it a bond nurtured by friendship (as it is in most cases), or a bond born from clashing differences—have shaped and created the chain of events that span across our beloved franchise. These tiny links of fate, these unbreakable connections, have led characters to their ultimate demise or their salvation, time and time again.
Here, I would like to highlight the relationships closest to my heart—what makes them so interesting, how their relationship contributes to their characters, and what my hopes are for them in future titles. The first relationship I’d like to highlight wasn’t so hard to pick. This pair is a combo from different trios, and is a relationship that is still important despite it being given less stress since Kingdom Hearts II (KH2): the relationship between Sora and Roxas.
What about you? Which bond between two characters struck you most in Kingdom Hearts? What do you wish to happen to this bond in KH3? Tell us in the comments!
