  • Time reversal: At any random moment when the protagonist deals damage to him, he could potentially stop and reverse time to the precise moment before he is hit. As soon as time is restored, he uses one of his other attacks before the protagonist can react.

I've never actually seen this. Can someone link to a youtube that depicts it? Is it named in the Ultimania?"We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 06:03, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

There is nothing about it in the Ultmania I'm afraid, since he was added in the Internationl version. I think the time-reverse just happens during the first phase, before he goes batshit insane, you can see it here. It is kind of a rare move, I personally think he uses he uses it only to counter attacks in his near vicinity, meaning no shotlocks and only surges if they stop right by him. --ShardofTruth 15:31, 29 February 2016 (UTC)
Oh, okay. I never once saw him use it in BBSFM HD."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 17:07, 29 February 2016 (UTC)

Critical Mode exclusive attack in KH3D[edit]

There is a move where he does a combo and then finishes with an aerial one, used only in Critical Mode, but I don't find it in the attack list. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 17:08, 3 May 2016 (UTC)

If it's not listed in the ultimania, then I really want to see a video of it before we think of adding it."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 18:09, 3 May 2016 (UTC)
Here : [1], and as I saw myself he used this move only when I played on Critical Mode. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 03:44, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

Almost surely one of either Wild Arcanum, Finish, or Whip Wave. Japanese desc. for each as follows (maybe someone might want to translate, since they all seem to look similar in action):

  • Wild Arcanum: キーブレードでなぎ払ったり突いたりして、なぎ払ったときは三日月形の波動も放つ。これらの攻撃のあとか、空中の相手に近寄ったときには、空中でキーブレードをムチ状にして振りながら波動を放つこともある
  • Finish: ムチ状にしたキーブレードをジャンプして振り下ろすことを2連続で行ない、振り下ろすたびに地を走る波動を放つ
  • Whip Wave: キーブレードをムチ状にして3回振り、振るたびに三日月形の波動を放つ

Is it possible he's actually using several attacks in extremely quick succession? Ultima Spark (talk) Lofty Fantasy KH3D.png 06:57, 4 May 2016 (UTC)

It's certainly not Finish or Whip Wave, but one can suggest that's an advanced version of the Wild Arcanum attack. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 10:54, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
  • Wild Arcanum: Sweeps and stabs with the Keyblade, releasing crescent-shaped waves when he sweeps. He will occasionally approach the opponent from the air after these attacks, releasing a wave while swinging the Keyblade like a whip in midair.
  • Finish: Jumps and swings the Keyblade downward like a whip two times in succession, releasing a racing wave with each swing.
  • Whip Wave: Swings the Keyblade like a whip three times, releasing a crescent-shaped wave with each swing.
Sounds like Wild Arcanum."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 13:44, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
We can also add this midair combo is only used in Critical Mode. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 15:12, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
...not according to the Ultimania?"We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 18:31, 4 May 2016 (UTC)
...but according to my KH3D game experience. This midair combo was totally new for me when I faced YX for the first time on Critical Mode. If you don't believe me, you can confirm this by playing the game yourself. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 03:30, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
My file's on Critical Mode too, so no dice. It's really difficult to prove a negative, I agree, but you're gonna have to demonstrate that this move cannot appear on lower modes. Maybe it's just less frequent, that kind of thing."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 13:25, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
I just said the first time I saw this attack, it was the first time I played Critical, so I never saw it when I played on Proud, Standard or Beginner, and I fought him so many times on lower modes that I can tell now it's a Critical Mode-exclusive attack. You can check it by playing the game yourself on lower modes if you still don't believe the words I say, the game itself isn't that long. That's a bit like Char Clawbster who goes directly berserk at the beginning of its battle on Critical. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 19:31, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Is this the move you're describing? Does it always happen in Critical Mode? In any case, no, you have the burden of proof -- you're the one who needs to provide youtube videos showing the difference in the technique, or find somewhere in the ultimania that demonstrates that bosses have different moves in critical mode."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 23:23, 5 May 2016 (UTC)
Yes, that's the video I was talking about, I also asked if it's only on Critical and the answer was yes. It's just he doesn't use this move on lower modes, I've never seen him using this move since I began playing this game and until I battle him on Critical, and I'm not the guy who likes lying in a serious topic like this one. If you really don't believe me and want a proof, here's a battle on Proud Mode, where he never uses it. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 22:34, 6 May 2016 (UTC)
Yeah, that's fine then."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 01:00, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Then, as it is confirmed now, we should put this fact on the page.
EDIT: Now that it is confirmed, should I put it in the description ? -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 12:23, 7 May 2016 (UTC)
Go for it."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 13:55, 26 October 2016 (UTC)

Oh, for God's sake. Seriously? I mean, you guys haven't heard? I remember reading in an interview that Tetsuya Nourma confirmed that this unknown is Xemnas before he became Xemnas. It's Xehanort. I do remember reading it, but I don't remember how to find it. Maybe in KHInsider or Kingdom Hearts Ultimania.

Either way, this just jumping the gun too fast.--NinjaSheik 01:29, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

if you're talking about me when i had said "like xemnas" i didn't say anything about him being xemnasKhruler 20:02, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

ShadowXemnas - Nothingness...is...ETERNAL!!!
TALK - Turn to Darkness!
Well, whatever this new foe will be named, I'm going to call him "Xehanort's Promise". As it is not a Remnant or an Absent Silhouette, but something before the actual being, it seems fair to list it as a foreshadowing enemy (Read: Enemy that tells of the future in subtle hints), and since Xehanort's desire is to control Kingdom Hearts, and Xemnas is a part of that, this being is a "Promise" that he will do whatever it takes to do so. Thus, I shall call him Xehanort's Promise until the official name is revealed (and if it remains Unknown, I'll just stick with X.P.). What do you guys think of it?

Xehanort's Promise? What? This isn't the page to talka bout what ever name YOU want to give him,this is the offical page. His name is Unknown until the game comes out. Not meaning to sound rude by the way.


Dragoon (Art).png
ShadowXemnas - Nothingness...is...ETERNAL!!!
TALK - Turn to Darkness!
Don't worry, you're not being rude, and I understand where you're coming from. When I said I would call him Xehanort's Promise, I meant as a reference name, like I call Ansem, Seeker of Darkness "Ansem the Dark" in standard conversation. I didn't say that I would change the page name or something crazy like that, since it would be unnecessary and likely net me a warning. So any fears you may have can be assuaged. At this moment in time this character is the new Unknown, but I will refer to him as Xehanort's Promise when mentioning him. Makes it less confusing, considering that Xemnas is called Unknown in KHFM. Aside from that, what do you think of the name, unofficial it may be?


i'm got 35% sure that unknown is xehanort from KH3,the unknown know to rewind time,that means he is coming from the future, maybe he come back to here to try player skill ,just like KH1FM xemnas did to sora.

Well here's my theory: It's Master Xehanort's nobody(or something like that). now before you all say anything, please hear me out. Roxas was born when Sora gave up his heart to free Kairi's. well what happened to Master Xehanort's original body when he forced his heart into Terra's body? I know it's not very likely to some people, but its still a good theory right? I mean it's so close to Xemnas its not funny! User:Chaosmage1

It was me! :O[edit]

I started the page because no one else had before. Pretty much everyone at the KHI community was calling him that, so I figured why not. I did it just so we actually had a page started for the character, and could edit it as the news and videos and whatnot came out.

Why not just, you know, wait until there's actual information? We have, what, three more months now?Glorious CHAOS! 06:01, June 23, 2010 (UTC)

from looking through all model files i found this: Xehanort.png

this is one of the models where my model exporter produces only garbage uv data, but from the texture, it is xehanort: h04di00.png

his filename is h04di -> the 4th high poly model from Destiny Island.

here the confirmed pictures: 23hxbht.jpg 2wohlzp.jpg t02nev.jpg jpd55y.jpg looks like Xemnas from KH1FM, but he can't exist at that time, so Xehanort has the highest chance.

Xehanort appears in a black cloak near the beginning of the game, and the texture seems to resemble the "young master xehanort" as well. It's probably just that, not the new boss.Glorious CHAOS! 19:41, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

You can get a keyblade[edit]

it said so in the interview just look at http://www.khinsider.com/

....and this is why you shouldn't rely on incompetent translators. The interview says that you get VANITAS's Keyblade after you beat VANITAS's Sentiment.Glorious CHAOS! 09:56, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Actually, it's Vanitas's Sentiment's Keyblade not Vanitas's Keyblade. Not really sure but, Nomura said "In addition, there were complaints about the reward for defeating Vanitas' Sentiment, so you will now receive his Keyblade as a prize."

"His Keyblade" may mean either one!

Again, don't rely on machine translators. The interview point-blank says "Vanitas's Keyblade".Glorious CHAOS! 10:21, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

has anyone else noticed that he holds his weapon in a reverse where as Xemnas wields his similar weapons as extentions of his hands

Rough translation (because the khinsider post was riddled with error)[edit]

KHBbS: Blitz PS, Mr. Nomura interview, and North America version radio actor and additional element, etc.

- Blitz PS Vol.474 (It is an article on 6/25 sales).

― The sale of North America version "KHBbS" seems to be near.

Mr. Nomura: It is September 7. There is variously additional element, too and it was restlessly changeable. The voice of [erakuu;su] is competing of the dream of "Star Wars" and "Star Trek" because Leonard Nimoy (Leonard Nimoy) took charge of the voice of mark Hamill (Mark Hamill) and [zeano-to]. The enemy character of the mystery is added. It is not possible to win easily probably because it frightens and it is strong. Opinions such as "I did not want to meet twice" and "It was possible to win 20 times at last once" had come out from [debakka-].

― Is it stronger than the thought of [vanitasu]?

Mr. Nomura: There are some people who felt that the thought of [vanitasu] is stronger, and is a person who feels that a new character doesn't fight overwhelmingly easily though the questionnaire was taken. However, a new character is obviously stronger for the performance etc. of the technique. Bang Bang ..already enormous technique.. is used. It is up to a type like the stay thought of "KH2FM+" as for either of this new characters while the following movement etc. were a legible comparatively other parties in the thought of [vanitasu]. Next, what attack you do is not understood, and there is disagreeable.

― Will the new character be still a person in close relation to the story?

Mr. Nomura: I do not think that the true colors is understood at all at "KHBbS" though it becomes so. The existence is made character covered with the mysteries like being so the stay thought now.

― Other main change points?

Mr. Nomura: Because the Mega flare was too brutal oppositely though there was an addition in all places really in detail, the weakening does. The key braid of [vanitasu] can be obtained because there were a lot of voices of dissatisfaction ..[gohoubi] when the thought of [vanitasu] is knocked down... ..novel one.. some as the play element. add such a correctionProbably the tradition of the "KH" series around here.

― Is there a new secret movie?

Mr. Nomura: To our regret, it is not. There was no added time there. The secret movie is preparatory in "KH Re:Coded" though it is what when saying the taking the place. Please look forward because it is a content that not is mobile. The respect was considered this time because there was a lot of hows for being to see the secret movie at "KH 358/2 Days".

Twice!?[edit]

in the article, it says that the unknown is fought twice. Is there any proof that it is fought twice?Keyblade0 01:13, July 20, 2010 (UTC)Keyblade0

Yes: Nomura said so.Glorious CHAOS! 03:05, July 20, 2010 (UTC)

Land of Departure? (Warning: Spoilers)[edit]

Excuse me? Not sure I really understand, so you just make sure to save right before the world gets destroyed? 66.215.20.249 04:09, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

Like in ReCoM, beating the Vanitas's Lingering Spirit unlocks the Mysterious Figure for all save files, even ones you haven't beaten the Spirit on. However, since you can't visit Land of Departure after beating the Lingering Spirit, you have to go back to an earlier save file, or start a new game. There has been some rumor, though, that you can take your stats and inventory from the completed game with you, though I haven't seen any evidence on that yet.Glorious CHAOS! 15:54, September 3, 2010 (UTC)

The Stratagy Guide Messed Up[edit]

The Stratagy guide said he slows down time for your character while he moves at normal speed. Anyone who has seen a battle with him or fought him can tell he actually rewinds time for BOTH him and your character for a few seconds. --Evnyofdeath 16:53, September 8, 2010 (UTC)

Something REALLY important just dawned on me about this boss[edit]

Is says the requirements to fight this boss are to beat VLS then load a game file where you can go to the Land of Departure. It NEVER says you can't fight him on the same file you beat VLS as long as you can go to the Land of Departure on that file. In other words, On any scenario except the Last Episode. --Evnyofdeath 14:45, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Erry - Let me think about it.
TALK - Scherzo Di Notte ~ {{{time}}}
Evnyofdeath, you're right. I defeated VLS on the Final Episode with Aqua, loaded a saving with Terra, Ventus and Aqua BEFORE the final battle with Master Xehanort and Vanitas and went to LoD and was able to fight him.

Ah, thanks guys for that. Nice to see this cleared up. So every chapter but the final one huh? Guess I was wrong when I said all the time. More like all but the final I guess. - Flintlock Vitor 21:25, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Wait, so is it possible to get to LoD AFTER fighting the final bosses on the file used to fight the final bosses? Or do we have to make a second file just before the final bosses? --66.215.20.249 22:42, September 9, 2010 (UTC)

Well, TLoD is available to go to anytime after the point that corrosponds to Terra's fight with ME in any scenario. If you leave the KG you can go to TLoD anytime. --Evnyofdeath 17:50, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

But can we get there in the same file used to defeat the final bosses? 66.215.20.249 02:34, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

If you mean the Final Episode, the part you fight Xehanort as Aqua, then no, because you can't go to the Land of Departure in the Final Episode --Evnyofdeath 03:34, September 15, 2010 (UTC)

I think I can add something to the timeline of this fight as well. In addition to knowing that this fight occurs before the Final Episode, I think it's safe to say that it happened after Master Xehanort ruined the Land of Departure (when you fight the Unknown, you can see half the castle is gone and the sky is dark, evidence of MX's doing). If I recall correctly, after MX does that, Terra, Ven, and Aqua are making their way to the Keyblade Graveyard.

Canon?[edit]

Can someone explain to me how this is exactly a canon fight? The supposed article that states it is canon, from what ive read, makes no reference/ doesnt mention at all that this fight is canon. It just says "hes shrouded in mystery" that means we just dont know who or what it is at this point.FatalMercy 02:52, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Precisely. Why would Nomura tell us who he is and how the fight is canon? Wouldn't be a Mysterious Figure then, now would he? maggosh 02:56, September 13, 2010 (UTC)
"そうなりますが、「KHBbS」の時点ではその正体はまったくわからないと思います。留まりし思念がそうだったように、現時点ではその存在については謎だらけのキャラにしています。"
That's the line that has been translated as (this is from memory, and not exact) "Like the Lingering Sentiment, you think it shouldn't appear at this time [in BbS], but it does. At the present time, its existence if full of mysteries."
It is possible that this was mistranslated, so if anyone can get a better translation (I didn't do this one, and it's kind of hard to unravel the grammar he's using, since he's trying to be very precise in his answer), please do. It's completely possible that we're wrong here.Glorious CHAOS! 15:45, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

Please explain how that means it is canon? Last time I checked, Sora vs Lingering Sentiment(aka Terra) is NOT canon. Terra wasn't supposed to be in KH2FM, but yet he was. Also, "At the present time, its existence if full of mysteries." You are just validating what I said before that it's just unknown who it is. That quote does not prove that the fight is in canon....-FatalMercy 18:38, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

TALK - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
DL Sprite Vanitas Icon KHBBS.pngby saying that "while it shouldn't make sense that he is there during the time, he is" points to the fight being canon because if it wasn't canon, it wouldn't have to make sense, it would just be there.


Kind of like Lingering Sentiment,Unknown KH1FM, Sephiroth , or Kurt Zisa? They are "just there" during the time and are random boss fights to test your skills/something else to entertain you. Those are not canon fights. I still don't see how saying he's there proves its canon.-FatalMercy 19:01, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

I'll use one of your examples. Lingering Sentiment. At the time of KH2FM he was just a super boss, but by the time KHBBS came out we realized he wasn't JUST a super boss, he is the last remaining essence of Terra (unless somewhere deep down Terra is still fighting MX for control of his Heart) --Evnyofdeath 19:22, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

...what do you mean "last time I checked"? Nomura has never said that the LS fight in KH2FM was non-canon. As for Kurt Zisa, the journal and the fact that Xion resembles Kurt Zisa when replicating Sora's memories of Agrabah are evidence for it being explicitly canon. Unknown KH1FM is specifically mentioned in the opening to KH2 ("I've been to see him...") Sephiroth in KH1FM has an entire cutscene added for him. I don't see how any of these could be considered non-canon. As far as I can tell, LS was only considered non-canon because people think that stuff like "New Game+" means that the characters went through the entire plot again, in player-time, rather than it just being a mechanic to unlock parts of the plot.Glorious CHAOS! 19:29, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

So the Phantom is a canon boss? Canon means it is part of the main storyline. A canon fight would be Sora vs. Xemnas, we know it happened, and Xemnas wasn't an OPTIONAL/SECRET boss, it is impossible to progress the storyline further without beating Xemnas. Optional/Secret means you DO NOT have to fight to progress/add to the main story, so therefore it is NOT canon. "Nomura has never said that the LS fight in KH2FM was non-canon" He never said it WAS canon either. Lingering Sentiment,I buy as semi-canon, due to it is Terra's essence, and there could be a possible(note possible, if KH3 has no connection to this fight, then it is non-canon.)connection in the future. My bad on that. But other than that, the other bosses are not canon. "Sephiroth in KH1FM has an entire cutscene added for him." So how come Sora/Sephiroth don't remember each other if it was canon? Sephy was just a Cameo boss.-FatalMercy 19:55, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

...yes, the Phantom is canon. It's given plot-time, a journal entry, the whole shebang. c. There is a difference between "non-canon" and "forgettable". Sora vs. FM1 Unknown is ABSOLUTELY canon. Sora vs. Lingering Sentiment being canon IS WHAT THIS QUOTE IS ABOUT.
Hades Cup is optional in KH1. However, KH2 and KHDays both have the seed listings for the Hades Cup up in the Coliseum, with Sora listed as the winner, none of which happens until you beat the Hades Cup in KH1.
Sora/Sephiroth - it was a coliseum match. Does Cloud ever mention his fight with Sora outside of the immediate cutscenes there? (maybe he does, but I don't think so). Does Leon? You have to beat Leon to seal Olympus Coliseum, and the later games say that Sora sealed everything. The important thing about Sephiroth was that Cloud knows him, and he definitely recognizes Sephiroth in KH2 - they even mention finishing their battle, as I recall.
With fictional canon, if it appears in the published material, and the author doesn't explicitly say that it isn't canon, and it isn't retconned by later material, it is canon. That's how it works. So far, later games have only supported the various sidequests and optional bosses as being canon.Glorious CHAOS! 20:38, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

"It's like you're saying that Angel Star heartless are non-canon because they aren't mentioned later" No, if you actually read what I say, Canon means part of the main story, AngelStar Heartless are part of the main plot, as is it is part of the process of collecting hearts for the Organization. As for Sephiroth, no crap he knows Cloud as he is from the same world, just like how Aerith, Yuffie, etc. all know each other before meeting Sora. As for the cups, in KH1 (copy pasting this from trivia section of Olympus Coliseum "In the first Kingdom Hearts, the player can complete the game without entering this world. But if the player were to go there after sealing Hollow Bastion, the scene between Hades and Maleficent is different: Maleficent is absent, and the scene ends after Hades makes his plan to kill both Sora and Hercules." Even though Hercules and every1 recognize Sora in KH2, its not part of the main canon, and is more of a side story, so anything that went on in KH1 within the Coliseum is not imporatant to the main story, which makes it non-canon; which obviously changes in KH2, when the Coliseum becomes canon. Everything that happens in a game is not canon, but since your completely ignoring my argument, i'll stop arguing.<-- For Real ---FatalMercy 21:36, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

I'm not ignoring your argument. Canon is, basically "What is the true story?". Later games have proven absolutely that the Hades Cup, Kurt Zisa, Sephiroth and Ice Titan (via the One-Winged Angel and Diamond Dust appearing in CoM), the FM1 Unknown, etc., are completely canon. For the rest, there is no reason to believe that they are not canon, because no one has said they are not, the future plots do not contradict them, and unlike the Postcard quest, for example, the developers took the time to develop plot for these sidequests.
By the way, the Angel Stars are not part of the main plot of Days. They are an avoidable common enemy at End of the World in KH, except for the last event swarm at Final Rest.Glorious CHAOS! 22:48, September 13, 2010 (UTC)

"They are an avoidable common enemy at End of the World in KH, except for the last event swarm at Final Rest." And in various Cups... You are reinforcing my point that you ignore/only read what you want to for some reason unbeknownst to me. I already stated what canon is in about every post of mine. I also already stated that the Hades cup was canon because of KH2, but again, you only read selectively. "For the rest, there is no reason to believe that they are'not canon, because no one has said they are not, the future plots do not contradict them" There is no reason to also believe they are IN canon if they are not stated to be so... which is what i've been trying to say since my first post. Assuming that something is factual when it has not been proven to be so, has no place in the wiki, as the point of the wiki is to provide the facts. Assuming that "X" is canon without viable proof (an article that is vague/cant be interpreted effectively is not viable proof) is irresponsible/stupid. You could say the previous sentence was hypocritical, but if something is not proven to be in the canon, it is then, by default, non-canon, until proven otherwise. You know how the saying goes "Never assume because it makes an A-- out of U and Me." What i've been trying to say all along is that the "proof" of it being canon is not a viable/ useful source, as it is confusing/vague, which means that posting that the Mysterious Figure is in canon 100%, is unfactual, and therefore not acceptable for being in the article...You'll probably ignore this and say "Nothing disproves it is canon, so therefore it is." *Sighs*---FatalMercy 01:12, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Please stop doing this.
  1. "There is no reason to also believe they are IN canon if they are not stated to be so" - Yes, there is. They were in the released and published material. With your method ("Only if producer explicitly says it"), almost nothing would be considered canon, because Nomura has rarely ever needed to say what is and isn't canon.
  2. "Assuming that something is factual when it has not been proven to be so, has no place in the wiki, as the point of the wiki is to provide the facts." - That is an extreme exaggeration and contortion of the definition of facts. You know better than that.
  3. " You are reinforcing my point that you ignore/only read what you want to for some reason unbeknownst to me." - You absolutely did not say that the Hades Cup was canon. You said "Optional/Secret means you DO NOT have to fight to progress/add to the main story, so therefore it is NOT canon.", and then "Even though Hercules and every1 recognize Sora in KH2, its not part of the main canon, and is more of a side story, so anything that went on in KH1 within the Coliseum is not imporatant to the main story, which makes it non-canon;". Claiming that you said Hades Cup was canon is an outright lie.
  4. "that the Mysterious Figure is in canon 100%, is unfactual" - actually, the MF and LS are pretty much the one time that Nomura has said anything anywhere near defining something as canon. With your definition, it would in fact be pretty much the only thing that is considered canon.

Finally, your constant ad hominem attacks are tiresome, and useless. I'm trying to respond to your points here, and you're not impressing anyone by calling me names.Glorious CHAOS! 12:54, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

In summary, and correct me if I'm wrong - your definition of canon is "The producers explicitly say it is canon, or it is important to the story". This does not include events called out by later games, because you specifically say that the Cups in KH1 are non-canon. Whereas my definition of canon is "Anything in a produced and released work that is not declared non-canon, nor contradicted by later material". If you'd like to read up on how other franchises handle canon, read here.

Excerpts:

  • "The policy decrees that most fiction is canonical unless it is contradicted by a higher level source or is explicitly marked as non-canonical (such as material released under the Infinities banner)"
  • "By contrast, Paramount, the owners of Star Trek, have for the most part limited their canon to events within the live-action television series and the motion pictures."
  • "Some franchise owners ignore canon totally. The BBC, owners of Doctor Who, have no canon policy. Indeed so little attention is paid to it that the franchise is riddled with countless irreconcilable continuity clashes despite being presented as a single continuous story, even in the TV movie and continuing television series that were made many years after the original series was cancelled. It has been the fans who have therefore attempted to create a canon for the series, though this is in constant flux as new material is released and is the subject of perpetual arguments. "
  • "Hasbro's only real input on what constitutes canon in Transformers comes from the Transformers Universe franchise, which grew out of the BotCon merchandise and fiction produced by 3H Productions, and has continued with Fun Publications' fan club and Timelines comics. These stories present the idea that each Transformers continuity exists in its own separate universe, with Primus and Unicron as entities which straddle (or easily travel between) these universes. This approach is essentially a tacit endorsement of the model that the Transformers fandom had already started working under: Everything is canon. "
  • "In Transformers, "canon" is for all intents and purposes a synonym for "official". If it was released by a Transformers licensor with Hasbro approval, then it is canonical. However, simply being canonical doesn't say anything about what continuity or continuities it applies to. "
  • "All officially-licensed fiction is canonical for some continuity. "

Even Star Trek, the most restrictive of these, still says that pretty much everything that occurs within the main series is canon. That's what we're saying here - if it occurs within the main game series, it's canon. I honestly don't know of anyone that says that only the "important" events count (for no small part being that that is such an arbitrary distinction), or even worse, that it is only canon if the producers take time to say so (they rarely ever do).Glorious CHAOS! 12:54, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

Ok ok, since you went through all that trouble just to try and destroy little old me, you win. Lemme just clear up where " i outright lied."

Quoting myself--

"...and is more of a side story, so anything that went on in KH1 within the Coliseum is not imporatant to the main story, which makes it non-canon; which obviously changes in KH2, when the Coliseum becomes canon. <--------------- I said it later becomes canon, and i thus repeat my sentence of: You only read what you want to read. -FatalMercy 14:23, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

"and i thus repeat my sentence of: You only read what you want to read."
Oh, so that's what you meant. Okay, so no, the problem was not selective reading, it's that you are terrible at clarifying your point, and you take an absurd amount of offense when people misinterpret you, rather than clarifying yourself.
Here's what your section actually says:
"In KH1, Olympus Coliseum's KH1 story is non-canon because it is unimportant. In KH2, Olympus Coliseum's KH2 story is canon because it is important."
What you should have said is "...and is more of a side story, so anything that went on in KH1 within the Coliseum is unimportant to the main story, which leaves it as unconfirmed canon; which obviously changes in KH2, when the Coliseum story from KH1 is retroactively made canon."
This would have meant
"In KH1, Olympus Coliseum's KH1 story is not confirmed as canon because it is unimportant. In KH2, Olympus Coliseum's KH1 story is confirmed as canon."
Have I captured your point, then?Glorious CHAOS! 14:56, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

The post I was referring to, was to one that I wrote after the angelstar heartless post, which has somewhat better grammar. And no, you haven't "captured" any points of mine, so there's no reason to continuing arguing with someone who does not think canon is ambiguous. I say there's no reason to continue arguing, but yet you continuously post responses in order to antagonize me, so I must do the same.

My point EXACTLY. I said nothing except you were the antagonistic one, and you insult me in such a way. I believe thats called an ab homonim attack.

You come in out of nowhere and attack me, so that's why I attack you. "You reap what you sow." Maybe if you just, you know, didn't say anything, I wouldn't have been antagonistic towards you.

Like I said, verbally attacking/insulting my intelligence out of the blue isn't ending the dispute, i've been trying to get answer to "how is something proved to be canon, when the creator does not say so?"

Which is what i've been trying to say the whole time, if Nomura does/does not say the fight is canon, it should not be posted in the article as so.-FatalMercy 16:56, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

The wires are getting crossed somewhere. Nomura has said that the fight against the mysterious Figure IS canon, however refuses to explain HOW it is or WHO it is. --Evnyofdeath 17:01, September 14, 2010 (UTC)

  1. Disagreeing with you is not the same as "ignoring you".
  2. I post responses because you keep saying I'm misreading you. I want to figure out what the hell you're saying, 'cause so far it all seems like illogical nonsense.

Why are we using the image of hooded Xemnas for the MF (no pun intended)? While they both use similar weapons, we shouldn't assume that s/he is Xemnas, or any other character for that matter. As far as any of us know, right now s/he could be Kairi's Grandmother. We should just use a screenshot for now, until somebody can render out an image from the game.

Strategy[edit]

I've beaten this guy with all three characters now but i'm new to editing wiki pages so i'll let someone who knows what they're doing decide if the information i have is relevant and worth adding to the article. If you want I'll post my strategy here or in the forum. Here are a few things I think should be mentioned in the article. In the "Appearance" section, the shape-shifting nature of his weapon should be mentioned; it can change into a double bladed lightsaber, a whip and the hilts can also change into spear or arrowheads to be used during his attacks. The strategy section should also discourage the use of Shotlocks and D-Links. Shotlocks leave the player vulnerable and it's almost impossible to get a full lock on count against this boss as he is very fast and is always on the attack. D-linking during the battle will cause him to enter his invisiblity stage right from the get go making this difficult battle much harder. That's what I think should be added to the article and freely give out any other info i have if anyone thinks they need it.MyNameIsTheMaster 02:03, September 16, 2010 (UTC)

Thunder Surges will always work regardless off any character, provided that you need to perform well-timed dodging and blocks. Do this and you can use the Rhythm Mixer's finisher to finish him off. In this way, you'll save a lot of time. Samcrux 11:04, December 18, 2015 (UTC)

Real name literally "Unknown"[edit]

In this video, approximately 5 minutes and 20 seconds in, there is shown a journal entry for this mysterious figure naming it the "Unknown".

Lssj4, the only thing that prevents us from doing so is that this is a mainspace article. This is not a discussion. Now, on KHFR, we put Xemnas from KHFM (who was then known as "Unknown") under Game:Xemnas, considering that the details had already been revealed. Same goes for KHW, because it was created in 2006, i.e. during the time KHII was released. Now, we might have an "Unknown (disambiguation)" page, but one will have to link to Game:Xemnas, and the other will link to Unknown (i.e. without any suffixes ; Unknown is just going to be Unknown. Over on the other side, fr:Inconnu, the general term, only redirects to this page. TROISNYX Symbol - Bell.png AMDG 06:01, September 19, 2010 (UTC)

Strength and Defense[edit]

The stratagy guid lists the MF's strength and defense as '?', so I don't think its possible to find out what they actualy are, unless someone hacks into the game and gets the info, or its listed in a Japanese guide, which won't exist until BBSFM comes out. --Evnyofdeath 20:54, September 20, 2010 (UTC)

Larxene is much thinner and has a lithe, hourglass figure. The Unknown has a similar body structure to Xemnas; more broad-shouldered.

Take two minutes to read the section right above you. We don't know anything about its physical appearance other than its general body structure, and it never talks. That is not enough to decide on a gender.LapisLazuliScarab20:26, October 9, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, but body structure does look masculine but, same goes for Larxene. It is most likely male but it COULD be female but we won't know untill Nomura says anything. (Or in a couple games from now.)--My Keyblade + Your face = pwnage 23:45, October 9, 2010 (UTC)Chihuahuaman

Lea Frisbee.png Okay guys disregard my last post on how it didn't reveal any identity. I just had to look closer! Turns out that this texture:

n_zz010_02out.png

Is identical to a texture used only used by Saïx. The other Organization members use a similar texture only they don't include the little white earring piece. There are four textures like this used by the Organization as seen here:

Normal one: GenericEtc.png Luxord's: LuxordEtc.png Xaldin's: XaldinEtc.png Saïx: SaixEtc.png

You can see Saïx's earring here: SaixEar.png

This is what that portion of the texture is used for and it isn't present on the other Organization member's textures. I even compared it to Master Xehanort in his black coat and it doesn't have it either.

I said the model didn't contain any secrets up above but turns out that it very well may. Here's a side by side wireframe overlay of the meshes for the faces of Saïx and the Mysterious Figure:

SaixMysteriousFigureFaces.png

Obviously the Mysterious Figure's is lower polygons/triangles but all the models in birth by sleep are about 1/3 the polygon/triangle amount. This means that not as much detail is able to be displayed through the mesh alone. A lot of the detail is left to the texture on the psp models. But if you look that quite looks like a pointed ear and when I put the wireframes over each other they line up near perfectly.

I never would have considered the possibility of Saïx being the Mysterious Figure but based on what I found by comparing the actual materials used in the game I'm convinced that he is indeed some incarnation of our beloved lunar warrior.

DL Sprite Vanitas Icon KHBBS.pngO_O....As much as i don't like the idea of it being Saïx, I am finding it very hard to argue with this evidence. for the sake of being thorough, again have you compared this with any of the other members?


This does raise questions as to why it's Saïx who's the Mysterious Figure...

...but your evidence is pretty undeniable. Especially that Earring bit. And, of course, it makes us wonder about why Saïx changed weapons.

But then again, in Blank Points, MX mentioned that Terra was one of many paths he (MX) could take to achieve his goals...

You have two points, the texture and the build. The texture one has already been addressed so I'll address the build. Yes, it they do seem to have the same build, however that in and of itself doesn't prove anything, as in real life two different people can have the same build. --Evnyofdeath 22:49, October 25, 2010 (UTC)

Lea Frisbee.png Okay you asked for comparison against another Organization member. So here you go. You said that it looked like Xemnas to you so here's what I have after comparing the Mysterious Figure to Xemnas.

So to start here is Xemans's face aligned with MF's as well as side by sides. It should be noted I had to scale the height of the face of Xemnas down to get a close match while I didn't have to do this, or any other modification for that matter, to get Saïx's to line up:

XemnasMF.png

Now for a side by side of Xemnas, Saïx and the Mysterious Figure:

XemansMFsidebyside.png

And here's an overlay with the Mysterious Figure outlined in blue:

I'm still convinced it's some form of Saïx even though I'm surprised by this myself. Besides I don't think Squeenix would be so careless as to use an accidental texture.

TALK - HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA
DL Sprite Vanitas Icon KHBBS.pngok, so the body type seems to only match Saix perfectly, shocker, as for the texture, they might if it really didn't matter which one they used, considering the hood was up. Keep in mind you don't neccesarily have to consider canon material when deciding stuuf like that, especially if the extra accessories aren't going to be seen due to the hood being up


It really, really doesn't make sense for this to be Saix, but it could be more than just "eh, use Saix's model, who cares". It's possible that, whoever it is, they look similar to Saix, and so they used Saix's model as a stopgap. I highly, highly doubt that it is actually Saix, though.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 00:19, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Lea Frisbee.png "I'm still convinced it's some form of Saïx even though I'm surprised by this myself."

As I said Kyrten Koro it might be some form of him. I never would have suspected Saïx until I began looking at the model and textures themselves. Granted Saïx was the right hand man of Xemnas so if Xehanort has an accomplice when he returns Saïx could make sense. Though how or why really really doesn't make sense to me. It's the only thing I can think of though.

@ShardofTruth Your very welcome I'm just trying to provide the best help I can. Even if it may be proved wrong eventually.

Vsymbol.png Impressive find, iZerox, kudos.

This is all very conclusive and all, but I would be really let down if the Mysterious Figure was Saix. I mean, he's a cool guy and all, but I expect someone a lot, well, bigger than Saix. If you ask me, I think the identical renders were probably a coincidence, or maybe even just Square using a random render.

Hopes aside, this is great evidence, but it is based on sight only, which is a poor way to make conclusions. The eyes can deceive you, after all. Riku wore a blindfold because of it.

And if it was Saix, then I detest these render ripping programs for being able to spot on match up renders. It's almost like cheating the series. Sort of like "Young MX's" real face. Cool and all, but it was intended to be a mystery, and the program did a dandy job at cheating what could be a big spoiler to the series.

Man you are a genoius but its just impossible for it to be Saix look at how he fights and his body structure macthes Xemnas more.Also Saix died so it cant be him.In BBS Saix was still human he was Isa and just a teen.But as we see this guy can control time but still he must have a connection to Xemnas not Saix.--{{SUBST:User:Lssj4/sig2}} 13:42, October 26, 2010 (UTC)

Graceful Dahlia KHD.png @Lssj4. Yeah, but you can disregard how old anyone may have been during any time in the series. The reason is, Unknown can obviously control time.

But, about it being Saix, it has to be mere coincidence. Saix never has shown any "time controlling" abilities, and if he could control time, I would think he would have shown it already. Also, if it is Saix, he would have to have traveled back to the Land of Departure before he was slain. Furthermore, if he had such immense powers wouldn't he have used them to save his own life? Regardless if he was keeping them a secret, surely he wouldn't die for it. Just to many reasons why its not him than why it is. But your research is legit, and there's no denying the body-type is like/ or just is Saix's render. But, what about characters that aren't in the Organization?

i personally think its a new character tp be properly introduced in kingdom hearts 3 as its obviously not saix hes gead uses a completely different weapon, fighting style, etc and its not luxord for the same reasons so i think we just have to wait and see 86.178.227.136 00:32, November 25, 2010 (UTC)

Saïx has longer sleeves that Mysterious Figure's, that's the biggest difference I have noticed. Did you also check Marluxia's hooded model ? It's quite the same as Mysterious Figure's. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 21:14, 7 December 2015 (UTC)

His sleeves are exactly the same, he just has longer hands. iZerox posted a wireframe overlay. Please review the evidence that's already been presented before trying to find objections just to support your pet theory."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 02:50, 9 December 2015 (UTC)
Yeah, the hands are longer, that's already a difference. Plus, I've shown a comparison between MF and Saïx and you could see with your own eyes the differences, with the sleeves and the shoulders being different. Here you've shown no contradiction against the fact the hooded Marluxia model and the MF one are the same, though they look they are. You've also shown no comparison between both Saïx's, Marluxia's and MF's hooded models. So finally, no, this isn't a "pet theory", since I noticed something people haven't noticed, or, contradicted with their prooves, which you clearly didn't, you just compared with Xemnas's, Xaldin's, and Luxord's, but not with Marluxia's hooded model.
Plus, if you want another reason why he would have Marluxia's appearance : this Mysterious Figure has two of his techniques : Doom, and Whirlwind to the Void, and you battle him in what became Castle Oblivion.
Ah, and you said iZerox in the title that it could be Saïx, meaning that's not completely sure and confirmed. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 03:57, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
"Yeah, the hands are longer, that's already a difference."
Goalpost moving.
"Plus, I've shown a comparison between MF and Saïx and you could see with your own eyes the differences, with the sleeves and the shoulders being different."
No you didn't. You made a claim about the sleeves which is actually false.
"Here you've shown no contradiction against the fact the hooded Marluxia model and the MF one are the same, though they look they are."
Begging the question.
"You've also shown no comparison between both Saïx's, Marluxia's and MF's hooded models." / "you just compared with Xemnas's, Xaldin's, and Luxord's, but not with Marluxia's hooded model."
iZerox did compare the textures. Marluxia uses the "normal" texture.
"Plus, if you want another reason why he would have Marluxia's appearance : this Mysterious Figure has two of his techniques : Doom, and Whirlwind to the Void, and you battle him in what became Castle Oblivion."
This is irrelevant twaddle. The discussion is not "who, plot-wise, could Unknown be?", since we already know it's Young Xehanort. It's a direct question of how SENA made the model.
"Ah, and you said iZerox in the title that it could be Saïx, meaning that's not completely sure and confirmed."
"It's just a theory! That means anything at all else is more likely to be true!"
Stop it. Either put in the actual work that iZerox did, the work you're ignoring and claiming is "obvious" when asked to put up or shut up, and, well, put up or shut up."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 14:50, 30 November 2016 (UTC)
Now, do you think that's polite ? Telling me to shut up like this ? I've seen with my own eyes the differences between Saïx's and Mysterious Figure's models, and there are several of them you could see ! Look at his model when Saïx appears hooded at Twilight Town and compare it to Mysterious Figure's model ! Words can be enough to notice things such obvious as similarities and differences, it's like playing the seven errors : you don't need an actual work to prove that you're right, the eyes's ability can be enough. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 04:13, 3 December 2016 (UTC)
"Now, do you think that's polite ?"
That's tone-policing, and the point is that you've ignored several explicit requests to provide evidence and are criticizing the basic use of evidence and measurements in determining truth.
"you don't need an actual work to prove that you're right, the eyes's ability can be enough."
And the community is looking at the actual in-game model from the Unknown overlayed over Saix's, and seeing that they are virtually identical. They are seeing that the skins for the two models match, while Marluxia's is different. Bloody hell, they're not just saying "well, it's probably Saix, he wears a black cloak in'e?", we're looking at actual work that has been done to conclusively and objectively demonstrate that the Unknown's model uses data from Saix's.
Again: look at the evidence iZerox actually provided, and either demonstrate how iZerox's method is allegedly fatally flawed and unusable, or show how your candidate (Marluxia) has a better result via this method. But stop it with the "Marluxia fits it better because I say Marluxia fits it better"."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 19:22, 5 December 2016 (UTC)
Telling someone to shut up isn't polite, it's rude and mean. Do you think by telling me to shut up that would make me want to agree with you anyways ?
Now between those two : Cy_jZNXXUAAXmaj.jpg
I can see differences, like the lines around the chest being deeper on MF, the chest itself being more noticeable in MF's and the hood's lines being more visible in Saïx's model and not in MF's. You actually compared MF's model with Saïx's not-hooded model, that can be deceiving, as you didn't use Saïx's hooded one. And of course, I don't have the ways to go deep into the game's data, but that's not necessarily my fault.
Also n_zz010_02out.png SaixEtc.png
If the first one is MF and the second one is Saïx, then no they're not the same, the shades are way different. And don't forget : this is still a theory, so on Saïx's page, make sure to put the fact it's probably the same. -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 12:38, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
"I can see differences"
I can't see any differences that can't be accounted for by the two models literally being on different hardware.
"then no they're not the same, the shades are way different."
That's not the part that matters -- that shade difference is present between MF and Marluxia's as well. The actual shapes present are what matters. The MF's skin packet has Saix's earring -- a feature that is only present in Saix's skin packet, and on no others, including Marluxia's.
"I don't have the ways to go deep into the game's data, but that's not necessarily my fault."
No one's saying that it's "your fault". This isn't a matter of being "fair", or you being "bad" for not being able to do the same work iZerox did. I'm saying that you simply have not presented an appropriate rebuttal. Just because you don't have a rocket ship doesn't mean I have to say "well, scientists have an unfair advantage in tools, therefore Braviaggron is probably right about the Earth being flat because if you squint it looks pretty flat."
As I have stated multiple times -- you simply have not presented the due diligence necessary to rebut iZerox's work. Your points aren't very cogent just from a rhetorical basis -- it's mostly complaining that I'm not being fair to you, or polite to you. And you know what? If you're not able, through skill or opportunity, to perform the necessary due diligence, it's an oh well."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 15:08, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
Okay, okay, fine ! You're all right ! Saïx and Mysterious Figure are the same (though the cutscene don't show any obvious similarities, I mean look at that
CzAS0FDWQAE9xqY.jpg
you can't say they're the same, look at their chests for example), my thoughts, my brain and my opinions are all flawed ! I hope you're happy about the fact I'm wrong ! -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 15:58, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
I mean, I can easily say they're the same because they look virtually identical and you've failed to do any sort of actual rigorous, good faith comparison like iZerox did, but jesus. I keep trying to tell you not to take this personal -- it's simply a matter of empirical fact, not a judgment on you as a person. You're not going to, like, end up homeless because Square decided to use Saix's model instead of Marluxia's."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 16:44, 6 December 2016 (UTC)
What does have ending up homeless have to do with a flaw brain ? But look at their chests : they're not the same : Saïx's is flat ! -- Miniat_Braviaggron.png Braviaggron 19:53, 6 December 2016 (UTC)

As in the evidence you presented is common knowledge, and it doesn't necessarily say for sure that it's Xemnas, in fact there id very little that points directly to xemnas at all, and even if there was, we have had no official word on the identity of the Unknown, so it would be speculation anyway.--ShadowsTwilightΧ-blade (Incomplete) KHBBS.png 02:28, November 26, 2010 (UTC)

Yeah. Although some info seems very convincing (the fact that they have similar build and their weapons are extremely similar) other info would contradict it (the fact that, if they were the same, Xemnas has never before seen time powers or the fact that this takes place many years before Ansem, Seeker of Darkness is even created). Heartless Emblem.png I never said most of the things I've said Heartless Emblem.png

He doesn't have Xemnas' exact build. He has Saix's game model, which has a different body build than Xemnas'. Scroll up the page.LapisLazuliScarab13:54, January 23, 2011 (UTC)

Combat Level[edit]

When the Unknown appears in the Land of Departure, I notice that the combat level goes up to 13. This could be another hint towards the Unknown's association with Org. 13? Or perhaps just coincidence? What do you guys think? --Naxxcr 23:06, December 4, 2010 (UTC)

Attacks (need formatting)[edit]

  • Sword Combo-The Unknown preforms a long combo using his swords. Can be blocked.
  • Sliding Dash-Preforms a short dash similar to the Sliding Dash Deck Command.
  • Uppercut-Preforms an uppercut, throwing the player into the air.
  • Sonic Blade-Rapidly charges at the player several times, similar to the Sonic Blade Deck Command. Can hit if the player is in the air.
  • Collision Magnet-Jumps into the air and throws sword at the player. If it connects, the player is pulled to the Unknown and then thrown back down, taking damage. If the Unknown is close to a wall, the attack will be cancelled. Similar to the Collision Magnet Deck Command.
  • X-Slash-Fires a X-shaped projectile. Similar to one of Vainitas' attacks, except executed much faster. Can be blocked.
  • Tornado-Lanuches a fast-moving tornado after a short start-up time. If hit, all of your Deck Commands will be dropped. Similar to the Tornado Deck Command, evening using the same graphic.
  • Raging Storm-After a noticable delay, summons three pillars of flame and charges around the battlefield. After the Unknown's HP dips, he'll start using other attacks while this one is active. Very similar to the Raging Storm Deck Command, except the Unknown can move must faster than usual.
  • Meteor-Summons a Meteor to bombard the player. Similar to the Meteor Deck Command, except executed faster.
  • Mega Flare-Fires a fireball after a short delay that explodes shortly after use. Similar to the Mega Flare Deck Command, except that is doesn't require contact to explode and uses different explosion animation.
  • Laser Spike-The Unknown creates a number of energy spheres from his swords, then proceeds to walk around while the spheres fire spears (shaped like the swords' handles) at the player, each disappearing after a single shot.
  • Vanish-The Unknown makes himself invisible when his HP is low or when a D-Link is activated, preventing the player from locking on to him. Virtually the same as the Vanish Friend Command, except the Unknown's weapons are still visible.
  • Doom-Casts Doom on the player, leaving them 5 seconds to live. Pressing the X button rapidly will prevent demise.
  • Renewal Guard/Barrier-The Unknown guards after being hit several consectutive times, also restoring HP.
  • Clone-The Unknown makes 4 copies of himself to attack alongside him. They disappear after one hit (to themselves or the original), but appear to have the same HP as the original when locked-on.

Unknown3619 17:37, 13 December 2011 (UTC)The unknowns weapons are basied off a popular clock hand style called Hermle Serpentine. As for the symbol that appers below him/her when he/she use's magic spins. I dont know if that means anything but it brings us one step coser to his identity.

You should put his weapon design yourself, Unknown2619, thanks! As for the symbol, ShardofTruth or ErryK could probably get a game rip of it. The17Ultima Weapon Keychain KHBBS.pngMaster 16:37, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Unknown3619 15:37, 6 January 2012 (UTC) wait! The Unknowns blades emit a blue energy. The same shade of blue that Riku uses. Riku shows it in the session limit. And when he uses bladecharge in 368/2 day and Dream Drop Distance. And there is a 2nd Riku in the Dream Drop Distance trailer at monstro. Could there be a conection there?

So, have we gotten any images of "young Xemnas" using weapons?[edit]

Because it's pretty obvious now who the Mysterious Figure has to be, if he's supposed to be a hint at characters in KH3D.192.249.47.196 15:51, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

If you're talking about that guy that appears at the end of the Jump Festa trailer, it's young Master Xehanort. And regarding the weapon, there aren't any image of him using one for now. The17Ultima Weapon Keychain KHBBS.pngMaster 16:34, 5 January 2012 (UTC)

Dark Impetus=Roxas and/or ven?[edit]

Unknown3619 15:12, 18 January 2012 (UTC) I Have recently been compareing Dark Impetus with other songs in the KH series. I was told that the Mysterious Figure's theme was a clue to his/her identity. The result was that Roxas and Ven's theme share the same beat and score. I've never noticed it before because Dark impetus is a faster remix with different insruments. Could Ventus and/or Roxas be connected to the Mysterious figure somehow?

Master Xehanort[edit]

Has anyone else recently seen in the Famitsu interview that Nomura said that this guy is actually the young Master Xehanort who has the power to manipulate time? Nomura even mentioned that he might go into the future and all that. EnglishJoker 08:33, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Uhh...no. The hell did you read that? maggosh 14:00, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Unknown3619 15:04, 19 January 2012 (UTC) Yeah. I have been looking in every interview and always Stuying all things about the mysterious figure. And i havent seen the Interveiw you are talking about. Do you have a link to it?

Unknown3619 15:24, 19 January 2012 (UTC) I am very serious about The Mysterious figure. I have been working hard to find his/her identity. Please dont add any Unsorced staements without proof. Thank you.

It was a little snippet www.kh2.co.uk added on their website before khinsider and kh13 did. I trust you've seen it now. EnglishJoker 18:17, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

January Famitsu interview[edit]

Unknown3619 17:04, 19 January 2012 (UTC) I have read the Interveiw online. There are a lot of cool things on it like: Ad hoc 2 player options and new Pitures. They talked About seeing past events what happed in Radient Garden. But there was nothing about the unknown or master Xehanort.

There was a short mention of it in one of the summaries, but until more of the interview is translated, you won't find that part of it. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 17:08, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Unknown3619 17:23, 19 January 2012 (UTC) This is killing me man! I worked so long finding his identity. I cant calm down.

Unknown3619 17:37, 19 January 2012 (UTC) I found this :O --Other than Fantasia's world, there is the appearance of a character wearing a black coat and has gold eyes. Who is this character?

Nomura: In KH Birth By Sleep Final Mix we added a boss, a mysterious man who can manipulate time. That's him. KH3D will talk about what sort of person he is. For instance, where he will go in the future, and the appearance of Vanitas, we will see some appearances of this person of darkness.

There, see? I just wanted to bring it to the wiki's attention. I'm not suggesting a merge or redirect or anything like it. EnglishJoker 18:16, 19 January 2012 (UTC)
Okay, so if we can verify that that translation is accurate, we should add this to the article and rejigger it into a character/boss suite. If the Unknown turns out to indeed be Xehanort, and not some "Xehanort's Vanitas" or any other thing like that, we can do a merge.
Thank you for bringing this to the wiki, EJ!192.249.47.195 18:21, 19 January 2012 (UTC)

Re: Interview.[edit]

Unknown3619 15:23, 20 January 2012 (UTC) Its done. I have seen the entire interveiw 100% Translated. I Read It all 6 times over again. Here is what i have: The Unknown appears in many worlds that are in sleep. Wherever he appears villians from the past appear. (yes its a he. The interview called the unknown a "man".) (also this explains why vanitas appears in the trailer so vanitas in the game is canon, (that means you were right erry, My bad.)) Also It was not confirmed that the unknown is xehanort but he chose this form. He seems to be able to change his form.(Examples are: The unknown turns into Ansem seeker of darkness in Notre dame talking to riku, The unknown turns into Riku in Monstro talking to Riku, And The unknown turns into young Xeahanort in Notre dame.) He seems to be able to summon Dream Eaters as well.(He summons Sora's boss in Traverse Town) I dont know about you guys but im kind of sad that the mystery of him will end soon. Trying to figure out who he was gave me something to do.

Where ever did it say that Ansem and Xemnas were forms of the Unknown? EnglishJoker 09:00, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
You supposedly read the interview 6 times and yet got this part wrong: "Everywhere he goes, a few people of the darkness turn up, like how Vanitas came out in the trailer". It is never once said that he 'chose' to look like Young Master Xehanort, nor does it say that he changes into Ansem, Xemnas and Riku. It says that everywhere he goes, people of darkness appears such as Ansem, Xemnas, Vanitas and perhaps this Riku inside Monstro. - JTD95 17:32, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Examples are: The unknown turns into Ansem seeker of darkness in Notre dame talking to riku, The unknown turns into Riku in Monstro talking to Riku, And The unknown turns into young Xeahanort in Notre dame. - This is what you said, duh. EnglishJoker 16:54, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
I believe you mistook my reply after yours to belong to Unknown3619 seeing as I forgot to add my signature at first - JTD95 17:34, 21 January 2012 (UTC)
Well its good to see someone's not contradicting himself. EnglishJoker 19:48, 21 January 2012 (UTC)

Unknown3619 15:32, 23 January 2012 (UTC) I got the extra information from the new trailer. Just look closely at the Riku in Monstro and Ansem in Notre Dame. And i never said anything about Xemnas. And the Interveiw never said it was Xeahnort. Why is the Unknown article saying it is Xeahnort? In BBS the unknown appearing was canon. And this was before Anseam and Xemnas were destroyed. That means it couldnt be young Xeahnort because he couldnt come back yet. And look at young Xeahnort's body model in Notre Dame. Its totally diffrent from the body model in BBS. The Unknowns body in BBS is larger and Buffer then young Xeahnort in Notre Dame.

The article doesn't say that the Unknown is Xehanort, it says that the Unknown bears a resemblance to a Master Xehanort in his youth. "In BBS the unknown appearing was canon. And this was before Anseam and Xemnas were destroyed." Ehm, what? Yes the Unknown does appear before Ansem and Xemnas was destroyed but, when the Unknown appears in BbS Ansem and Xemnas hasn't even been created yet. Heck, Master Xehanort hasn't even taken over Terra's body when you fight the Unknown in BbS. The reason the young Xehanort in Notre Dame is different from the young Xehanort in the opening of BbS is because they're two different people. At least as far as we know. I have know idea what you tried to prove with your second post. In your first post you claim that in the recent interview it says that the Unknown can transform into other people when no such thing is mentioned in the interview. And in this second post you talk about something else. What are you trying to prove? - JTD95 19:02, 23 January 2012 (UTC)
The body model we have for young Xehanort, according to the editor who provided it (DE), is in error due to the game not including a bone structure for that character. He is actually fixing the model now to match what we see in the trailers, because it is clear that the skins are the same.
Please sign at the end of your posts, it's really confusing to read that jumble at the beginning.
Nomura explicitly says the Unknown has power over time, it really doesn't matter whether Ansem or Xemnas were destroyed or created yet.192.249.47.195 19:25, 23 January 2012 (UTC)

Hmmmm...[edit]

Since it's pretty clearl the Unknown can summon other villains, and possibly trans form into them himself, does anyone think he might be a sort of replica, like Xion, who appears different to everyone who see him, but doesn't have a real identity himself?

I had stated that the unknown could transform. It seems he is gathering people from the dark and making a group. It is also clear they are working to a goal. And for that goal they apparently need Sora, for they kidnapped him in the new trailer. So we need to ask: what does Sora have that they want? The hidden memories of those connected to him? (as shown in kingdom hearts re:coded). As for his identity, we dont have enough information at this time to say for sure, but i highly suspect that he is connected to Master Xeahanort someway. Unknown3619 17:28, 15 February 2012 (UTC)

I was saying perhaps he is some sort of modified replica of xehanort. If organization xiii had technology for replicas, it stands to reason that xehanort would too. However the body type he had seems quite different than anything seen of xehanorts before. Also xehanort doesnt possess the same abilities at all.

That is a valid point. He might very well have had that kind of technology. In fact he could have had many things we still dont know about. It could also be that the unknown isnt connected to Xehanort at all, but in fact a completly new character. We should wait for the next trailer. Unknown3619 19:12, 19 February 2012 (UTC)

It's also possible he's part of sora.

who isnt these days? He seems to have a connection to everyone. Unknown3619 13:58, 21 February 2012 (UTC)

20px-Pin_000.png Since this guy's appearing in KH3D, is Unknown (Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep) still an appropriate name for the article? Should we perhaps just call the page Unknown?
I, for one, find it hilarious that his official name is "Unknown". But yeah, most likely we should move it to "Unknown". --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 23:01, 22 February 2012 (UTC)

His name is probably shocking in some way and will be revealed mid-game (a la Vanitas's face). But yeah, I think it should be moved.

TALK -
We already have "Unknown" pointing at "Unknown (disambiguation)". Furthermore, the Unknown's name is almost certainly going to be revealed in KH3D. Seeing as KH3D isn't actually out yet, and moving this to Unknown now would be making an unholy mess of the disambiguation for a temporary simplification...I don't think this is a good idea.

Worst case scenario the game doesn't reveal his true name, and we can fix it then.

I guess we just wait until the game comes out in japan and someone plays it and finds the name and quickly change it on the wiki. its only 34 days away. Unknown3619 14:08, 23 February 2012 (UTC)
