A long, harrowing, devastating war is reaching its climax... and its resolution. 128 warriors wandered into the Keyblade Graveyard, prepared to do battle with whatever they met... whoever they met. Some fought for safety; for the X-Blade; for dictatorship; for love; for family; for their world; and some didn't quite know what they were fighting for. The canyon looks completely different; entire walls have been blown to bits by mastered blasts of spells, and no wall remains free of the scratches and protruding Keyblades and weaponry of the fallen warriors. 128 warriors wandered into the Keyblade Graveyard; 112 have fallen.

Remaining standing are a mere sixteen warriors, unfaltering forces of power, magic, and keys. Here stand members of many worlds, of many goals, of no true, absolute faction. Members of the Organization that nearly strewed many worlds awry, Keyblade wielders of old that fought valiantly against the greatest evil this canyon has seen, villains seeking domination of not only their world, but others too, and wielders of the Keyblade that have fought off darkness, nothingness, and everything in-between to protect their friends. This world is faltering, how much more can it take?

Slowly, the eight pairs rise up and lock eyes with their partner. Fate has decided once again who they shall defeat next... or they shall be felled by. The warriors charge through the Fissure, Twister Trench, and toward the Seat of War for what they think will be the last time. But suddenly, a blast of light is emitted from the sky. Gazing down on the warriors in the sky is Kingdom Hearts, the mass resulting from over one hundred fallen hearts. Distracted from the battle, the warriors gaze into the magnificent, blue glow of the heart that parted the clouds, now beaming light upon an only collection of raised pillars of rock.

Blasts of light and darkness are emitted in every direction from Kingdom Hearts, moving toward the warriors, ensnaring them in tendrils of the two conflicting, natural forces. Was this it, the X-Blade? Had it been formed, had a warrior proven themselves to be the ultimate? No; locked in place by the swarms of light and darkness, the fighters are suddenly blinded by the forces, and feel movement. They open their eyes again, once they feel themselves freed from the chains. No longer does one warrior stand in front of them; fifteen new challengers gaze at them, the survivors of this unthinkable match, atop the group of mountainous columns of desert land. But this isn't the end. The end is far from here. The warriors, basking in the glow of Kingdom Hearts above, raise their weapons again, locked into combat with new targets. Here, a warrior shall prove themselves to be the ultimate Master, the rightful wielder of the X-Blade and the worlds.

Show Original Statement

Legend has it that once, darkness covered the worlds, a crisis brought about by a destructive and mysterious Keyblade War. Keychains were broken, spells were fired in every direction, and the ground shook with every falling Keyblade Master's sinking of their lifeless key into the wasteland. The forces of light and darkness, once peaceful, turned upon each other in battle with many warriors, holding many keys, with power far too great for one world to hold. Forces so great clashed, the Castle of Dreams shook, and hearts were succumbing to both light and darkness with every passing moment. All of this destruction and loss had a purpose to these since fallen warriors: to create a mighty weapon that could rule all the worlds, the X-Blade. Just as the great World and Ocean Between was nearing its collapse under the pressure of the Keyblade War, all the warriors ceased, the weapons protruding from the hard ground, and their hearts lost to Kingdom Hearts. None were successful, and the relatively few survivors fled back to their worlds, speechless at what had just transpired.

However, darkness now threatens to consume the worlds again, as new forces seek the great power of the X-Blade. The old wounds have healed, and new warriors exist to claim this blade's great power--as do those who wish to oppose them. New warriors from across the realms of light, darkness, in-between, and nothingness have risen up to fight alongside the previous agents of destruction to claim what is rightfully theirs, or to stop the worlds from all falling into a void of chaos. Keyblade Masters have been training, princesses have been preparing, and witty comments have been exchanged, behind which lie fearful expressions of what may truly come out of this new brawl. The time has come for the battle of legend to be continued by a battle greater, larger, more destructive, and more epic than anything seen before on any world, by any Heartless, Nobody, Unversed, or Somebody eye. Perhaps even the old warriors shall find their power threatened by the new warriors of light and dark.

The Keyblade War.png

The Kingdom Hearts Wiki's The Keyblade War was a large-scale tournament, heavily influenced by similar tournaments at the Final Fantasy Wiki, taking place over two months to lead us into the new year. Similarly to the way that the wiki's Mirage Arena functions, two combatants faced each other, and the winner was decided by voting, the loser being eliminated from the tournament. The tournament included 128 characters from all over the series, all the way from Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep to Kingdom Hearts coded. As 128 shrank down to sixty-four participants, then thirty-two, then sixteen, then eight, then four, and finally two, the heat rose as the wiki celebrated all of the fantastic characters created by Square-Enix and Disney. Finally, as the new year began, the winner of our tournament, Aqua, was crowned the greatest, most powerful, most ruling force across all of the Kingdom Hearts universe.

Voting began on Friday, October 15.

Rules and Regulations[edit]

  • Each week, at least two brackets shall be posted for voting. This shall begin on the 15th of October, Friday, and the current brackets shall close the following Friday, at which time new brackets shall be posted.
