Eternal Nothingness XIII - Terra Master Symbol.png Ven, Aqua... I'll find some way to make things right.

Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png I honestly think the previous phrasing for the Birth by Sleep section on Xehanort's article was better, as it was straight-forward by using normal links rather than the ones that let you link to a page while still using a "cool phrase."

Plus the way it is now makes it seem like we need a Terra-Xehanort article, as one user's edits (and the respectable KrytenKoro's more recently) made it seem like Xehanort himself had no appearance in Birth by Sleep. The way the first line states his name simply as Xehanort makes the section confusing with the constant referrals to "Terra-Xehanort", and suddenly transitioning into using "Xehanort" for the rest of the article again makes the Birth by Sleep section seem unnecessary and adds confusion.

Remember the reason I changed it back to Xehanort the first time was because it eliminates confusion and spoilers, and also remains consistent. Ultimania isn't always right, an example being how they didn't categorize Vanitas as an Unversed.

I'm not very good at explaining myself, but for once actually pay attention to my feelings on this rather than shut me down with some explanation that makes it sound like I'm the one who's wrong. I'm not referring to anyone in general, but I would love for the community to make a final decision on this.

I always thought that he was referred to as Terra-Xehanort before he joined Ansem the Wise and he started using the name "Xehanort" around the time of meeting Ansem the Wise. Also, is Terra-Xehanort ever called just "Xehanort" in Birth by Sleep? I think the reason he is called Terra-Xehanort initially is because Terra's heart isn't fully consumed by darkness. I haven't played nor read the story of BBS so I could be totally wrong (`v`;)

Simply put, I would refer to Xehanort as "Terra-Xehanort" before his meeting with Ansem the Wise and use "Xehanort" after the meeting.

As far as I understand it, that's the difference between the two.

Can you provide a diff to explain what you mean about the spoilers, etc.? I don't know what you're talking about.

Not to nitpick, and I know it's kind of hard to do, but can we change the title of this thread to something waaaay less spoilery please?

Keyblade-Blk.png I will take care of that, BebopKate. Thanks for picking up on that, we nit-pickers have to stick together.

The name "Terra-Xehanort" is the name refers to the character (Xehanort) when Terra and Master Xehanort are in conflicting control of Terra's body. The name "Xehanort" is the name that refers to the character after Terra-Xehanort under Terra's control seals Master Xehanort heart, along with his own.

Also, sorry to get off-topic, but I think the Ultimania is correct in not listing Vanitas as an Unversed. The Unversed are the product of the conflicting existances between Ventus and Vanitas, conjured though Vanitas's ability to manipuliate emotions into physical enemies. Vanitas is what creates this conflict, not a product of it.
