  • "You mean laughter? Sometimes people with hearts do that even when it doesn't make any sense."
    talking about laughter.
  • "Hey, Roxas. Let's meet up for ice cream again after your next mission. I mean, who wants to spend their days just bouncing between work, and the castle, right?"
    while on the Clock Tower with Roxas.
  • "The Organization's got a second castle situated in the world between worlds. It's called Castle Oblivion. Got it memorized?"
    talking about Castle Oblivion.

Kingdom Hearts Chain of Memories[edit]

  • "Looks like it's my show now, Keyblade master. My name is Axel. Commit it to memory."
    meeting Sora.
  • "Good, you learn quick. So, Sora, now that we're on a first-name basis...... don't go dying on me!"
    before battling Sora.
  • "Congratulations, Sora. You passed! You're ready to take on Castle Oblivion. Follow your memories. Trust what you remember, seek what you forget...and you will find someone very special."
    talking to Sora and company.
  • "That's my kind of answer. Just what I'd expect from the Keyblade master. But be forewarned... When your sleeping memories awaken, you may no longer be you."
    before disappearing.
  • "He became a Heartless, Larxene—and you know what happens to people who do."
    talking to Larxene.
  • "He's partly one of us."
    talking about Sora.
  • "Can we help you, Vexen? It's not very often we see you topside."
    talking to Vexen.
  • " Heh heh... I know exactly how you feel. Don't get your hopes up. Nobodies can't be somebodies. But think, Naminé. I'm sure there's SOMETHING you could do..."
    talking to Naminé.
  • "He'll really do it, you know. He's got no choice."
    talking to Marluxia.
  • "Done. There's no taking that order back later."
    after Marluxia orders him.
  • "NOW you can tell me I don't respect my elders."
    before he slashes and kills Vexen.
  • "Marluxia, you used Vexen to test Sora's strength, right?"
    talking to Marluxia.
  • "You're all he's got left. If you don't stop this, no one will."
    talking to Naminé about Sora.
  • "Oh, I don't think you should give up just yet. By the way, Naminé. I don't see Marluxia around. Do you?"
    talking to Naminé about Marluxia.
  • "There's no one here to stop you. Do it right."
    before Naminé escapes.
  • "Hm Hmm... Ha ha haaa! Now THIS should be good. All the actors are in place. Now, Sora! Naminé! Riku! Marluxia! Larxene! It's about time you gave me one hell of a show!"
    Talking about everyone.
  • "Right, your big plan. You use Naminé to rewrite Sora's memory piece by piece. He becomes her puppet. Then, using Naminé and Sora, you and Larxene overthrow the Organization. Did I get it right? 'Cause that would make YOU the traitor, Marluxia. Not me."
    talking to Marluxia.
  • "Larxene paid the price for disloyalty. You're next, Marluxia. In the name of the Organization you betrayed, I will annihilate you!"
    talking to Marluxia about his betrayal to the Organization.
  • "Hmm... Listen, Sora. We've got more in common than you think. I'd rather not fight you... but I do have a reputation to think of!"
    before battling Sora again.
  • "Sorry... I'd hate to kill the suspense."
    after disappearing.


  • "Whatever, Vexen. Do what you want. But cut the act. Testing Sora is just an excuse to test your little follower."
    talking to Vexen about Sora and the Riku Replica.
  • "Larxene's out of the picture, too. Naminé turned on her. Gee, I wonder who's next?"
    talking to Zexion.
  • "Me? Naah. I already took my pounding from Sora. He thinks I'm done for good. I don't plan on doing a repeat performance anytime soon. No, I think Marluxia's next in line to go."
    talking about whose next to go from the Organization.
  • "Well, you can. All you need is strength that the real Riku doesn't have. Get that, and you can be a new person, your OWN person. Not Riku, not anybody else. You won't be someone else's copy. You'll be you."
    talking to Riku Replica.
  • "Sorry, Zexion. Saving you doesn't seem half as entertaining as observing Sora and Riku."
    before Riku Replica absorbs Zexion.

Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories[edit]

  • "My show now, Keyblade master. Who am I? Oh, my name's Axel. Got it memorized?"
    meeting Sora.
  • "Good, you're a quick learner. So Sora, now that we're getting to know each other better...don't you go off and die on me now!"
    before battling Sora.
  • "And you passed. Congratulations, Sora! You're ready now—ready to take on Castle Oblivion. You will need to follow your memories. Trust what you remember and seek what you forget. Then you will find someone very special."
    talking to Sora and company.
  • "You will just have to give some more thought to who it is that's—most important to you. Our most precious memories lie so deep within our hearts that they're out of reach. But I'm sure that you can find yours, Sora."
    talking to Sora and company.
  • "You have lost sight of the light within the darkness. And it seems that you've forgotten that you forgot."
    talking to Sora and company.
  • "Good answer. Just what I'd expect from the Keyblade master. But be forewarned... When your sleeping memories awaken, you may no longer be who you are now."
    before disappearing.
  • "There was a time he became a Heartless. And if one becomes a Heartless—"
    talking to Larxene.
  • "Right. But not Sora. He held on to his feelings, even as a Heartless. And there's only one other man who's been able to do just that."
    talking about Sora.
  • "How can we help you, Vexen? It's not very often we see you topside."
    talking to Vexen.
  • "Does it hurt, Naminé? Watching your two childhood friends fight all because of you? You have my sympathies. From the heart. But don't waste your time. We Nobodies can never hope to be Somebodies."
    talking to Naminé.
  • "You give a challenge like that to Vexen and he'll seriously want to eliminate Sora."
    talking to Marluxia.
  • "No taking that back later."
    after Marluxia orders him.
  • "We are just Nobodies who have no one to be, yet we still "are." But now you can be nothing instead of just being a Nobody. You're off the hook."
    before he sets Vexen on fire.
  • "You're all that he's got left. So then, if you don't stop this, no one will."
    telling Naminé to end her manipulation after Sora yelled at Donald and Goofy.
  • "Say, Naminé. Have you noticed? Marluxia doesn't seem to be around."
  • "Just that there's no one here who would want to get in your way."
  • "Just make it count."
  • "Now THIS should be interesting. Try and make it enjoyable, Sora. It's the least you can do for me, you know. Wait a sec, I'm enjoying this, you guys are something else."
  • "Ohh, right, your big plan. You use Naminé to rewrite Sora's memory piece by little piece. And he turns into her total puppet. Then, using Naminé and Sora together, you and Larxene overthrow the Organization. Am I right? I would say that YOU are the traitor, Marluxia."
    talking to Marluxia.
  • "Remember the order: "You must eliminate the traitor". I always follow orders, Marluxia. Larxene paid the price for disloyalty when she disappeared...You must do the same!"
    talking to Marluxia about his betrayal to the Organization.
  • "Hmph. Now, Sora. We've got more in common than you might think. I'd really rather not fight you... But I can't dishonor the Organization, now, can I?"
    before battling Sora again.
  • "Sorry... I would hate to kill the suspense."
    after disappearing.


  • "Vexen, Larxene, Lexaeus... I wonder who will be next in line."
    talking to Zexion about the loss of members.
  • "Me? No way. I already took my pounding from Sora. He thinks I'm done for good. Nope, I think it'll be Marluxia next. For defying the Organization and targeting Sora. I hope he moves exactly as his heart commands him to. So, what about you? I thought you guys had plans for Riku."
    asking Zexion about his plans.
  • "All you need is the kind of power that the real Riku doesn't have. If you can get that, you can be a new person---not Riku, nor anybody else. You won't just be a copy of someone. You will be unique, your OWN self."
    goading Riku Replica to attack Zexion.
  • "So sorry, Zexion. You just found out way too much."
    after Zexion's demise.

Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days[edit]

  • "Correction: the weaklings were annihilated."
    talking to Roxas about the members in Castle Oblivion.
  • "Come on, I would have told you that much. I gotta hand it to you... You were right. About Marluxia, the traitors... You knew exactly what was up."
    talking to Saïx about the traitors.
  • "Change of plans, Roxas! Our new mission is following Lunkhead there."
    talking to Roxas about following Pete.
  • "So what's your story? Why are you down here?"
    talking to Pence.

  • "Couldn't tell ya. I don't have one."
    while talking about best friends.
  • "Exactly. It's because of you two and the Keyblade that we're finally making some progress. We might finally get hearts of our own."
    talking to Xion.
  • "Hey hey! What are you grinning about?"
    while on the Clock Tower.
  • "So what, now I've gotta rat on my friends to you? Get out of my room, man."
    talking to Saïx.
  • "Oh, hey, Roxas. You hear about this vacation? About time we had a day off."
    talking about vacation to Roxas.
  • "Well, they do get a little help. Their teachers dish out plenty of homework. Trust me, it's over before you can blink."
    talking about vacation to Roxas.
  • "Ha ha, relax, would ya? I'm kidding. I just gotta keep my mouth shut about it, or else Saïx will get on my case. You know how he gets."
    talking to Roxas about his secrets.
  • "Hmm, true, but... I don't think that's quite the same. I guess the closest thing we Nobodies have got is our past. You know, memories of the stuff we couldn't bear to lose, back when we couldn't bear to lose it."
    talking about hearts and memories.
  • "Because you're not so complicated. But don't take it personal. Most Nobodies aren't."
    talking to Roxas.
  • "Once Kingdom Hearts is complete, you'll be able to do all kinds of things."
    talking about Kingdom Hearts.
  • " But he did say he would take back calling her broken—IF she proves herself more capable going forward. The best thing you can do for her now is keep up the good work."
    talking about Xion.
  • "You wanna know why I do? Because you're my best friends. The three of us... we're inseparable."
    talking to Roxas about friends.
  • "I can fly... I can fly!?"
    while flying.
  • "Then how 'bout I tag along? I know Castle Oblivion better than anybody else in this outfit."
    talking to Saïx about the fraud in Castle Oblivion.
  • "I can't make that decision for you. You're no puppet in my book. You're my best friend. Mine and Roxas's. Got it memorized?"
    talking to Xion.
  • "It was rigged so you two would battle each other."
    talking to Roxas and Xion about the mission being a setup so that Roxas and Xion to fight.
  • "Once you finish your ice cream bar, check the stick. It might say WINNER."
    talking to Roxas about the ice cream.
  • "I didn't let her go. The old man needs to get his eyes checked. Anyway, she wasn't taking no for an answer."
    talking to Saïx.
  • "The Organization made her to duplicate your powers. She's a puppet"
    talking to Roxas about Xion.
  • "You really think the truth is going to make you feel better? It won't."
    talking to Roxas.
  • "You can't turn on the Organization! You get on their bad side, and they'll destroy you!"
    talking to Roxas about leaving.
  • "WHAT'S YOUR PROBLEM?! You both... think you can do whatever you want. Well, I'm sick of it. Go on, you just keep running. But I'll always be there to bring you back!"
    talking to Xion before battling her.
  • "How did this happen?"
    before opening the letter with the "WINNER" ice cream stick.

  • "I gotta check in with the boss. Or he's gonna let me have it."
  • "You know, I sure wish the Heartless would hold still once in a while. I fell right on my butt chasing them around."
  • "Keep your mouth shut."
  • "You're a replica whose original purpose was to copy Roxas' powers. So if you see Roxas' powers getting weaker, while your powers are getting stronger... it could be that you're robbing Roxas' powers more than you oughta be."
  • You gotta think for yourself. Cuz I know you're not just a puppet. We're best friends. You, me, and Roxas that is. Got it memorized?"
  • "Finding out the truth doesn't always work out for the best!"

  • "Guess that's that."
    upon realizing Sora's departure from Twilight Town.
  • "Go where? It's not like we have homes to return to. We don't exist, remember?"
    bewildered by Riku's suggestion.
  • "Same here. So, you think you might let us go? I know you're here to get rid of us, but..."

    beginning to fade away.
  • "Think I'll pass. My heart just wouldn't be in it, you know? Haven't got one."
    while fading.
  • "I wanted to see Roxas. He... was the only one I liked... He made me feel... like I had a heart. It's kind of... funny... You make me feel... the same... Kairi's in the castle dungeon. Now go."
    lamenting on his true motive.
  • "Look who's finally awake."

    while talking to Roxas.
  • "You know, I've been thinking about something Naminé said. Roxas, are you really sure that you don't have a heart? Is it possible that we ALL have one? You, me, her... Or is that just wishful thinking?"
