    during Roxas's flashback of his initiation.
  • "You have been with us for six days now. The time has come... Sora."
    during his meeting with Roxas at the Dark Margin.
  • "The time has arrived. Look to the skies! There hangs the heart of all hearts—Kingdom Hearts—shining down on us at last. See the countless hearts that have gathered? Hearts full of rage...hate...sadness...and bliss. There, in the sky, hangs the promise of a new world. My friends! Remember why we have organized—all the things we hope to achieve. The strength of the human heart is vast. Soon, though...we will have gained power over it! Never again will it...have power over us."
    during his meeting with his Organization, to show them Kingdom Hearts.
  • "Put your mind at ease. Xion is a valued member of the Organization, but she needs her rest. Sora."
    his answer to Roxas's question about Xion.
  • "He's the connection."
    his answer to Roxas's question about Sora.
  • "He is what makes you and Xion a part of each other's lives. Just as he is the reason I placed Xion among our number. And if you want her to stay that way, I must insist you get your mind off these needless distractions. I will have Xion return to her duties tomorrow. Today, you must focus on yours."
    explaining what Sora is to Roxas.
  • "It is probably for the best. Get me back my Keyblade wielder. Fetch me Roxas."
    his reaction to Xion's death.

Kingdom Hearts HD 1.5 ReMIX[edit]

  • "The time has arrived. And at long last, we see before us the great collection of hearts. Hearts full of rage...hate...sadness...and bliss. Shining down upon us is the crystallization of all hearts—Kingdom Hearts. There, in the sky, hangs the promise of a new world. My friends! Let us gain further power, to conquer the human heart, and claim it as our own. Let us remember why we are here and what we hope to achieve. Hearts shall be gathered, and be made our own. Hearts shall never again have power over us."
  • "No matter what unfolds, our plans remain unchanged. Axel, Roxas, and Xion will play the respective roles that Kingdom Hearts has given them."
  • "Leave it be. How can you not see how perfect this is? In truth, this is more than perfect. Xion is marching right into the arms of destiny, but to destiny's own time. We need not take any more steps. All we must do is watch with caution and patience."
  • "I will admit, Xion has strayed from our original designs. However, we are also seeing an interesting side effect."
  • "The Key. Xion was affected by Roxas, just as we had anticipated. This was indeed what we had hoped to achieve... But then, through Roxas, Sora himself began to shape "it" into "her," giving Xion a sense of identity. Our plan seemed like a failure at this point... But then it occurred to me. Xion is keeping Sora's memories trapped by claiming them as her own. Keeping her close to Roxas will ultimately prevent Sora from ever waking."
  • "See that he stays away from Roxas. He is merely an impurity that would make Xion's existence incomplete."
    when Saïx asks Xemnas about the impostor.
  • "Yes, it was not supposed to gain a mind of its own—nor become the person we see. But in the end, it only proves that the puppet is the more worthy vessel."
  • "The time has come. Saïx, are the devices ready?"
  • "Both of them have connections to Sora, but we only need one of them under our thumb. Whether Xion takes from Roxas the rest of what he has to give...or, whether he destroys her first and takes back what is his, there is no change to our plans. No matter how, Sora's power will belong to us."
  • "Xion has disappeared yet again."
  • ""It"—not "she"—is a replica, merely a puppet."
    when Xaldin asks his superior about Xion's location.
  • "The purpose was to take a piece of the Keyblade wielder's memory and copy it, thus making his powers our own. This was one of several projects of ours being undertaken at Castle Oblivion. However, our efforts were severely derailed by Vexen's untimely demise. Needless to say, losing Vexen was not part of our plans. We were also caught off guard when this particular replica we called Xion formed an identity of its own."
    when Xaldin requests he and his cohorts should know about the Replica Program.
  • "Whatever the puppet may decide to do, we can be certain it will no longer have an impact on our plans. Still, it knows our secrets. We need to shorten the leash. Perhaps even tighten it."
  • "Axel. The onus is on you to capture and bring back Xion. The escape was on your watch. I will overlook any nicks or scratches. Just ensure she still functions on arrival."
  • "Dismissed."

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

  • "You have arrived. I've been to see him... He looks a lot like you."
    to Roxas after he arrives in the Dark Margin.
  • "I'm what's left. Or...maybe I'm all there ever was."
    to Roxas in the Dark Margin.
  • "My name is of no importance. What about you? Do you remember your true name?"
    Xemnas's iconic line during his conversation with Roxas.
  • "The Keyblade...a truly marvelous weapon. Were it only in more...capable hands..."
    to Sora during their second meeting.
  • "What a shame... And here I thought we could be friends."
    meeting Sora for the first time in Hollow Bastion.
  • "Gentlemen. The hero of the Keyblade has embarked on a new adventure. Make sure it is one he will remember. Now go."
    giving the remaining members of Organization XIII the orders to test Sora throughout the worlds.
  • "Good. Not only have you the power to inflict pain, you also have the power to plant seeds of doubt in one's receptive heart. Sora will soon begin to doubt himself. It will cause him to hesitate, and that hesitation will turn to anger. That anger will fuel him to get rid of his apprehension and move forward. He will pave the way for the future we desire."
    applauding Saïx's plan to turn Sora to their side.
  • "About Axel. The poor fool. How long will he keep chasing the illusion of friendship, when he himself lacks emotion? Trying so hard to retrieve what he has lost, when it may never have existed in the first place. He deserves nothing more than our pity."
    commenting on Axel's goals.
  • "It has been far too long, "friend.""
    talking to Aqua's armor.
  • "How long has it been since I abandoned that name..."
    to King Mickey after he calls him "Xehanort."
  • "I know nothing of any Kairi. As for Riku... Perhaps you should ask your king."
    to Sora during the battle of Hollow Bastion.
  • "If he is to die so easily, he is of no use to us."
    responding to Xigbar's question whether letting Sora to get defeated would disrupt the Organization's plan.
  • "But weakness has the power to awaken that which is dormant. It is clear that through his actions, however foolish they may have been, Axel has touched Sora's heart. Perhaps HE will soon awaken."
    voicing the possibility of Roxas's return due to Axel's actions.
  • "Yes...Kingdom Hearts... Rejoice, and feast on these hearts we offer! Shine your pale light on this empty realm... Share your power with all Nobodies!"
    to Kingdom Hearts.
  • "I was wondering who would dare interfere with my Kingdom Hearts. And look—here you all are. How convenient for me. Ansem the Wise... You look pathetic."
    meeting with Ansem and the others in the Castle That Never Was.
  • "Students do take after their teachers. Only a fool would be your apprentice. After all, none of this would have happened without you. YOU are the source of all Heartless. It was your research that inspired me to go further than you ever dared."
    mocking Ansem the Wise, before his device explodes.
  • "All that and more. I'm carrying on what you yourself began, and I'm creating a brand new world, one heart at a time. I thought you'd praise me, but all you ever do is hold me back. I understand, though. Unlike me, you have a heart. And you're powerless to control it. Consumed, by the jealousy you feel toward the student who surpassed you."
    to Ansem the Wise, during their conversation.
  • "Ohh...my Kingdom Hearts...ruined. Now I'll have to start all over again. Warriors of the Keyblade! Go forth, and bring me more hearts!"
    lamenting over Kingdom Hearts.
  • "Denizens of light, answer this: Why do you hate the darkness?"
    trying to deceive Sora, Riku, and Mickey.
  • "Then allow me another question. You accept darkness, yet choose to live in the light. So why is it that you loathe us who teeter on the edge of nothing? We who were turned away by both light and dark—never given a choice?"
    during his speech to Sora, Riku, and Mickey.
  • "Very good. You don't miss a thing. I can not feel—sorrow... No matter what misery befalls the worlds. No matter what you think, what you feel, or how you exist."
    before his first fight.
  • "Hear me, Kingdom Hearts! It seems we must begin anew. Ah, but know this: I will give to you as many hearts as it takes. Mark my words! You can no more be complete without me than I without you. Heed me, Kingdom Hearts! Lend me your power, so that we may be complete! The power to erase the fools that hinder us."
    before fusing himself with Kingdom Hearts.
  • "Hearts quivering with hatred... Hearts burning with rage... Hearts scarred by envy... That fool Ansem said the heart's true nature was beyond his understanding. But it's not beyond mine! Hearts are the source of all power!"
    before fusing himself with Kingdom Hearts.
  • "So...it seems your hearts have led you to obliteration. Perhaps it doesn't pay to be too loyal to one's heart. I will have to be sure and remember that."
    when being followed into the door to darkness.
  • "I need...more rage... I need more...hearts..."
    after being defeated for a second time.
  • "Heroes from the realm of light... I will not allow it to end this way—not yet. If light and darkness are eternal, then surely we nothings must be the same... Eternal!"
    after being defeated for the fourth time
  • "No more eternal than that radiance of yours..."
    before fighting him for the final time.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

  • "My my, a hollow puppet that's managed to grow a heart. Just imagine that."
    observing Pinocchio in Prankster's Paradise
  • "Maybe so. However—do not forget that you, yourself, are not so very different from us."
    answering Sora about Nobodies having hearts.
  • "The memory and heart are tightly linked. Rub a few memories together, and you get a spark of emotion, a feeling. But in a digital world, memory does not work like that. Nothing is ever felt. You can hold a thousand, a million times the information, but there is still no heart with which to parse it."
    telling Sora how data cannot possess any emotion.
  • "Once, my master, Ansem, found an old system and made a copy of its Master Control Program...and used it to serve his own ends. This is the original data of that system. Here, data can be copied. Memory can be changed and easily manipulated. Tron is a digital entity, so why would he be any different? He obeys the rules of this world."
    explaining the Grid's connection to Space Paranoids.
  • "Sora—what about you? Your heart, memories, your data, and your dreams. The bits and bytes that have made up your life so far—can you say for sure they are not just copies of someone else's?"
    questioning Sora.
  • "You had better check. Make certain the box's contents match what's on the label...since you have been chosen."
    replying to Sora.
  • "Indeed. A heart is never lost for good. There may have been variances in our dispositions, but a number of us unquestionably showed signs of a burgeoning replacement. Once born, the heart can also be nurtured. Our experiments creating Heartless were attempts to control the mind, and convince it to renounce its sense of self. But understand, one can banish the heart from the body, but the body will try to replace it the first chance it gets, for as many times as it takes. And so I knew, even after we were divided into Heartless and Nobodies, it was just a temporary separation."
    telling Sora the background of their experiments as Heartless and Nobodies.
  • "However—through weakness of body...weakness of will...or weakness of trust—most of the original members we had chosen for the Organization were inadequate. Thus, naturally, they never had a chance to attain their goal. Yet, even this was to be expected."
    explaining how the individual weaknesses of the original members of Organization XIII made them incompatible as vessels for Xehanort.
  • "We have learned of the heart's folly, and we have achieved our other goals. This last excursion has proven to be a worthy closing assignment for the Organization."
    concluding his words to Sora.
  • "You!"
    upon seeing Lea arriving to save Sora.
