Cutscene Quotes[edit]

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

  • "This world is just too small."
    a young Master Xehanort on Destiny Islands.
  • "But darkness did cover the world once, in legend. We know so little about the Keyblade War—only that it was just the beginning. Amidst the crisis, a precious light was found. It is a curious tale—and one worth exploring. They say ruin brings about creation. So what, then, would another Keyblade War bring? When the darkness falls, will we be found worthy of the precious light the legend speaks of? I must have these answers. The χ-blade needs to be forged, and with it, the door to the Keyblade War unlocked!"
    revealing his intentions to Eraqus.
  • "But once again you have it all wrong, Eraqus. Darkness is a beginning, you see, not an end. At birth, every one of us emerges from darkness into a world of light, do we not?"
    arguing with Eraqus.
  • "Not your concern."
    when Eraqus asked him if the darkness has taken him.
  • "No. It is because you are trying to hold it in. Let the dark impulses waken in the pit of your heart. Release them, here and now! Sharpen your fear into rage. You must! If you do not let the storm within you run its course, it will wipe you from the face of the world, make no mistake! Do it. Embrace the darkness. Produce for your Master the χ-blade!"
    trying to get Ventus to succumb to the darkness.
  • "Really? You would rather die than use the power? Feckless neophyte. If I must... I will extract the darkness from within you myself."
    right before creating Vanitas.
  • "Empty creature from Ventus riven... to you, the name Vanitas shall be given."
    naming Vanitas.
  • "There, you see? An empty world, like a prison. I imagine you'll be right at home."
    Master Xehanort leaving Ventus on Destiny Islands.
  • "What do you make of Ventus?"
    asking Vanitas what he thinks of Ventus.
  • "Not here, you won't. I have to keep up appearances."
    telling Vanitas to provoke Ventus somewhere else.
  • "Yes. You are indeed strong. The darkness is nothing to fear."
    talking to Terra after the Mark of Mastery exam.
  • "You are fine as you are. Darkness cannot be destroyed. It can only be channeled."
    encouraging Terra to embrace the darkness.
  • "Terra, come see me at once."
    beckoning Terra to the Keyblade Graveyard.
  • "Someone had to safeguard the light... from the demon I unleashed. You must know about the boy by now, the one in the mask. His name is Vanitas. A creature of pure darkness. One of my making."
    explaining his actions to Terra.
  • "Vanitas is the darkness that was inside your friend. It was an accident. While training with me, Ventus succumbed to darkness, and there was but one way to save him—strip that part of him away. And thus Vanitas was made. In the process, I damaged Ventus's heart in the most horrific way. So I did what I felt was right, and left him with Eraqus. I knew the boy could not stay with me, the man who did him such grievous harm."
    revealing Vanitas's origins to Terra.
  • "Ah yes. Well, I did my best to contain him the moment he emerged, but..."
    discussing Vanitas with Terra.
  • "Vanitas uses the Keyblade to sow seeds of darkness. And now, you see—the worlds teem with his ghastly underlings."
    revealing the origins of the Unversed to Terra.
  • "He has no control over the darkness in his heart. The Keyblade is not his to bear. He's an abomination beyond the hope of salvation. Lend me your strength, Terra. Right this wrong that I have wrought."
    feigning regret over the creation of Vanitas.
  • "What I can tell you about Vanitas amounts to this—his darkness is drawn to the light, which he seeks to disrupt... and then destroy. It stands to reason that he will strike next in the city of light, Radiant Garden."
    advising Terra on where to find Vanitas
  • "What are you doing, Terra?! Fight! Never mind me. You must fight! You can't let this ruffian win. Think of your Master, Eraqus—the shame he and your fellow pupils would be forced to bear! Use the Keyblade!"
    manipulating Terra into fighting Braig.
  • "Well done, Terra. You have taken yet another step forward."
    congratulating Terra on his victory against Braig.
  • "Then don't. You could be my pupil. Master Eraqus, you see, is so afraid of darkness, that he too, has succumbed—not to darkness, but to light. It shines so bright, he forgets that light begets darkness. And Aqua and Ventus, their lights shine too bright. It is only natural that they cast shadows on your heart. Eraqus... He is such a fool! Light and darkness, they are a balance—one that must always be maintained. Terra... you are the one who shows the true Mark of Mastery, but he refuses to see it. And I know why. It is because he fears you. Join me. You and I can do the worlds much greater good, by wielding light and darkness in equal shares."
    trying to convince Terra to join him.
  • "See more worlds. Seek out the darkness that upsets the balance. Find Vanitas. And bring an end to him... Master Terra."
    sending Terra on his way and naming him master.
  • "Unlikely. A powerful light still lives inside of Terra. You see, people like him... they don’t have the power to steal hearts."
    conversing with Braig.
  • "We meet again, boy."
    meeting Ventus at the Keyblade Graveyard.
  • "Ah yes, so you are starting to realize... what you lost—oh, but not for good. You had to lose in order to find. Now it can all be yours again, if you only reach out and take it. Reclaim the part that left you. Clash with him! Pure light against pure darkness, to forge the ultimate key. The all-powerful χ-blade!"
    encouraging Ventus to remember Vanitas.
  • "Not the Keyblades you and I carry. "χ"... A most ancient letter. Some say "kye," but the meaning is the same. Death... A letter that spells endings."
    explaining the χ-blade to Ventus.
  • "Eraqus knows it too. He knows exactly what you are. Haven't you ever wondered? Why he never granted you permission to leave his side, to grow stronger? Eraqus was frightened of you. If you were to learn the truth, realize what you are... He never trusted you. Why else would he keep you within his sight at all times?"
    turning Ventus against Master Eraqus.
  • "Go! You can ask the man yourself. Learn the truth, and remember you have a greater purpose!"
    sending Ventus into the Lanes Between.
  • "Master Terra. Find me. We must speak at once."
    summoning Terra to the Keyblade Graveyard for the second time.
  • "There is no time to lose! I've terrible news. Ventus has stumbled upon the secrets of his origins."
    explaining Ventus's emotional turmoil to Terra.
  • "Ventus is on his way home. If you could have seen the fury in his eyes... I'm certain he's capable of anything. I fear the boy may attempt to force the truth out of Eraqus. Master Terra, you must hurry back and see to your friend's safety."
    sending Terra to battle Eraqus.
  • "What a sight. Why do you trouble yourself with remorse, Master Terra? The man was bent on doing harm to your friend, his own pupil!"
    after defeating Master Eraqus.
  • "You know, at times I find your progress quite striking. But you still fall short. Let all that anger out, my boy. Give your heart over to darkness!"
    encouraging Terra's journey into darkness.
  • "Still so blind... Then I will make you see. Come to the place where all Keyblade wielders leave their mark on fate—the Keyblade Graveyard! There you will watch your dear Ventus and Aqua meet their ends, and the last light within you will die!"
    encouraging Terra's journey into darkness.
  • "You won't need a home anymore where you're going!"
    destroying the Land of Departure.
  • "Behold. These lifeless keys used to be full of power—united with the hearts of their masters. On this barren soil, Keyblades of light and darkness were locked in combat... as a great Keyblade War raged. Countless Keyblade wielders gave up their lives, all in search of one, ultimate key. And it will soon belong to me... χ-blade."
    announcing his plan.
  • "Admirably done. I knew this was a journey you could make—over the unseen wall that divides darkness and light. And I was not wrong, Terra!"
    congratulating Terra on his progress.
  • "Why, I did him a favor and freed the darkness inside him. Alas, poor Ventus never had the fortitude for such strenuous trials."
    explaining his actions against Ventus.
  • "Go take what Ventus owes you. And take Aqua's life."
    sending Vanitas away.
  • "You see how powerless you are to save them? Savor that rage and despair. Let it empower you!"
    trying to get Terra to succumb to the darkness.
  • "Yes, boy, that's it! More! Let your whole heart blacken with anger!"
    as Terra is overwhelmed by darkness.
  • "There, you see? The χ-blade has been forged! And now, Terra, it is time for the final union!"
    upon the creation of the χ-blade.
  • "At last, our moment is here. Out with the old and brittle vessel, and in with a younger, stronger new one! I swore I would survive... and be there to see what awaited beyond the Keyblade War! And now it is your darkness that shall be the ark that sustains me!"
    taking control of Terra's body.

Blank Points[edit]

  • "Darkness rules your heart—it gives me control. Muscle and sinew that once obeyed you now rebels against you. How you can remain here at all confounds the mind."
    conversing with Terra inside the new Xehanort.
  • "Hmph. Don’t even entertain any notions of escaping me, boy. In the end, your heart will be engulfed by mine forever."
    threatening Terra.
  • "As I recall, you couldn't even handle your own darkness. How, then, will you triumph over mine?"
    insulting Terra.
  • "Oh? So that's how it is, is it? Someone else has set foot in your heart. Eraqus, you sly fox..."
    discovering Eraqus has been in Terra's heart.
  • "Brave words, to be sure. But I'm a patient man. We can take as much time as we need to settle this little property dispute. However, know this— You are just one of many roads that I might choose to take. Trust me. I made certain of that."
    revealing his intentions.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded[edit]


  • "I will be led... wherever it is I am destined to go."
    discussing his destiny.
  • "Every Keyblade master is bequeathed a Keyblade of his very own. With the passing of time, as you can imagine, more and more Keyblades were forged to be handed down. But of all the Keyblades in existence, Master Xehanort's is the most ancient. That is my destiny. But it has yet... to become a reality."
    explaining Keyblade inheritance and the importance of Master Xehanort's Keyblade.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

Young Xehanort[edit]

  • "How did you get here? By choice or chance, you cannot control what you are not aware of. This wakeless sleep will be your prison, to wander forever."
    Young Xehanort's first words to Riku.
  • "Hypocrite. You are the one who has made your heart a prison... even if you are not the prisoner."
    Young Xehanort's first words to Sora.
  • "Your best friend is never far."
    appearing with Ansem, Seeker of Darkness in Riku's side of La Cite des Cloches.
  • "Still afraid of the dark, I see."
    before leaving Riku.
  • "That's what we do. Put the most precious memories in the back of our minds where they're safe. Or in your case, the most precious...hearts?"
    appearing in Sora's side of the Grid.
  • "You think this is the realm of dreams, but there, you are mistaken. Data does not dream, cannot dream. This world is real. You haven't the slightest idea where you are, that you have already wandered off the path."
    before leaving Sora again.
  • "So easily you sink into the depths of slumber."
    appearing in Symphony of Sorcery.
  • "Beautiful world, isn't it? Almost like a dream."
    marveling the world within the musical score.
  • "You really haven't caught on? Or are you just assuming it's all part of your little 'test'? I'm not part of the dream. And if you thought I was... then you're softer than they say. But...this will all be over soon. Sleep on and we will meet again."
    answering Sora's question on why he's following him.
  • "Yes. The boy chosen by the Keyblade--Riku. It was yours first, wasn't it? But you succumbed to the darkness you could not control, and your prize--the Keyblade--passed onto Sora instead. Your mistakes always end up being other people's problems."
    reminding Riku of his previous endeavors.
  • "Once again you performed predictably, although on a grander scale than I imagined."
    marveling and judging Riku's efforts.
  • "I don't know how you did it, but you really have found a way to trap darkness inside your heart. And a boy who's immune to darkness is of no use to us. Your abyss awaits."
    before summoning Chernabog.
  • "Yes. This was where it started. At this point, I still had no idea that I was talking to myself. He cast away his bodily form just to set me on the appointed path."
    talking to Sora as they see a flashback.
  • "That is Xehanort reduced to just a heart--the being you and your friends called 'Ansem.'"
    explaining to Sora who the figure in the brown robe is.
  • "Yes. The point in time that Xigbar mentioned."
    as he and Sora see past-Sora run into the Secret Place.
  • "To move through time, you must leave your body behind. Ansem first sent me on my way, and then placed himself here when the time was right. That was what set all these events in motion."
    explaining to Sora about Ansem's time travel
  • "No, not everything. But remember, Ansem possessed Riku and saw his experiences in real time."
    when Sora asked him if Ansem could predict everything.
  • "You've been here many times: your first journey... your voyage through memories... in the Datascape... in your dreams. Relived again and again...like déjà vu."
    reminding Sora of his visits to Traverse Town.
  • "You just make it too easy. I know you think you've won, but you lost the moment you dived this far in. You're in the deepest pit of slumber, and you've worned yourself down to nothing. There's no returning to the world above. We told you. It was not the Sleeping Keyholes that guided you. They are not the reason you are here. You've been on a path, one we laid out for you. That sigil on your chest is the proof. See? That sigil, the X, it tells us where you are at all times. You have wondered aloud before— why we kept showing up where you were? It's because we need you, Sora. Or, to be more precise, we need what will be left of you - the thirteenth dark vessel. Why was it assured you would come here today? Because I followed my destined path, and I'm here looking at you right now. You can move through time, but time itself is immovable. Today, all of my selves throughout time were meant to gather here, and to welcome you, Sora, as our thirteenth member. These facts cannot be changed. I have now told you all that I know. We are all here, and what the future holds in store is beyond my sight. I will return to my own time, and grow into the man who becomes all these others. While I know this future now that I haved lived it, returning to my own time will erase the memories and experiences I have gained here. Still, my appointed path is now etched in my heart, which will first lead me to seek the outside world. Your heart will sleep forever in the folds of darkness. And your body will be another vessel for me. So light gives way to darkness. Good night, Sora.''
    explaining to Sora more of what he knows.
  • "Hands off my new vessel."
    keeping Riku away from Sora.
  • "Yes. We originally had our sights set on you. But, you developed a certain... resistance to darkness. So we did what the Keyblade did, and moved down the list. Roxas... Now, there was a worthy candidate. But, unfortunately, he became too aware of himself, and returned to Sora. Organization XIII's true goal is to divide Xehanort's heart among thirteen vessels. Thanks to you and Sora, we learned not all our candidates were fit for the task. But, we managed to make up the difference. And now, Sora, the thirteenth vessel, is within our grasp."
    revealing the Organization's true goals to Riku.
  • "I am Xehanort from the most distant past. My future self gave a task— to visit the splintered versions of myself in many worlds, and ensure they gathered here today."
    revealing his true identity.
  • "There are restrictions to movement through time. First, you must leave your body behind to do it. Then, there must be a version of you waiting at the destination. Upon arrival, you can only move forward as per the laws of time. And you cannot rewrite the events that are destined to happen."
    explaining time travel.
  • "My most future self will arrive soon. Then, time for all of us will return to normal, and I will go back to my era to live the life fate has in store. He can vouch for that."
    explaining Master Xehanort's return.

Master Xehanort[edit]

  • "I said, hands off!"
    after possessing his younger self and overriding Mickey's Stopza.
  • "All of this was decided. My twelve selves would welcome me here on this day, when I would return a complete person. It is the future that lies beyond my sight."
    upon taking his place in the real Organization XIII.
  • "In ancient times, people believed that light was a gift from an unseen land by the name of Kingdom Hearts. But Kingdom Hearts was safeguard by its counterpart, the χ-blade. Warriors vied for that precious light, thus beginning the "Keyblade War." The violent clash shattered the χ-blade into twenty pieces— seven of light, and thirteen of darkness. And the only real Kingdom Hearts was swallowed by the darkness, never to surface again."
    telling the story of the Keyblade War.
  • "I once tried to create my own pure light and darkness to forge the χ-blade, but the attempt ended in failure. In my eagerness, I had lost sight of the correct way to achieve my goal. I acted rashly. I can admit that now."
    admitting his past mistakes.
  • "Ah, but destiny is never left to chance. I merely guided them to their proper places. The broken boy who failed to be the blade... the misguided master who sacrificed herself for a friend... and the feckless youth who became my new vessel."
    responding to Mickey's accusations over changing the destinies of Ventus, Aqua and Terra.
  • "Yes. They were all my doing. I used the evil fairy to find seven pure lights for me, just as I prepared thirteen vessels to fill with pure darkness."
  • "Yes, he did. That dull, ordinary boy— a Keyblade wielder so unlike any I have ever seen. However, I have not abandoned my ambitions— the seven guardians of light and the thirteen seekers of darkness."
    in response to Riku's claims about Sora.
  • "Yes, little king. Perceptive. But Sora and another on your list belong to me now. And that puts you three guardians short. But worry not. All of the pieces are destined to appear. Your seven lights just like my thirteen darknesses, whose final clash will beget the prize I seek— The χ-blade!"
  • "But first, the thirteen darknesses shall be united. All the seats have been filled. And now the last vessel shall bear my heart like the rest!"
    beginning to turn Sora into the thirteenth vessel.
  • "We are out of time. Neither the union of light nor darkness has been achieved, and we must all return whence we came. But, the gathering of the seven and thirteen is nigh. Let us finish this at the fated place, once your lights and my darknesses have joined together!"
    leaving with the new Organization.
