Cutscene Quotes[edit]

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep[edit]

  • "Mickey... I cannot shake the feeling something terrible is about to transpire."
    before the start of Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep.

Terra's Story[edit]

  • "Yes. Eraqus's pupil. I've been expecting you. It is the Unversed."
    upon meeting Terra.
  • "I am no longer a Master. I doffed that mantle."
    responding to Terra.
  • "You refer to Mickey. He, too, sought guidance here. As a king, he is good and kind. But the weight of a crown has not cured him of impetuousness. He has left with an object whose power he does not understand nor know how to control. Mickey imagines my Star Shard will be of help in his current quest. And, like you, he is eager to use his Keyblade to set things right."
    talking about Mickey.
  • "I must not make assumptions... Find Xehanort, Terra. That is where you should begin."
    giving advice to Terra.
  • "I had hoped, Xehanort, your heart would no longer lead you astray."
    after Terra leaves.

Ventus's Story[edit]

  • "Ah, Ventus. Eraqus has told me much about you. If I am not mistaken, you were ordered to return home."
    talking to Ventus about Eraqus.
  • "Where is this clue to Mickey's whereabouts?"
    talking about Mickey.
  • "As I thought... Mickey has been hurling himself from one world to the next. That explains why I could not discern his location."
    talking about Mickey's situation.
  • "You two? That may not be adequate."
    talking to Donald and Goofy.
  • "Very well, Ventus. We will leave it to you."
    before Ventus leaves.

Aqua's Story[edit]

  • "Aqua, the stars bring me grave news. Master Eraqus's star has blinked out. I am afraid that means he has been struck down."
    talking to Aqua about Eraqus's death.
  • "I hope with all my heart that you are right about your friend. There are some things even the stars cannot tell me."
    talking to Aqua.
  • "Terra's heart is leading him to the ancient Keyblade Graveyard, where wielders of those weapons once waged war."
    telling Aqua the location of where Terra is.
  • "To this day, many legends are told of the Keyblade Graveyard, but what in these legends is true? Not even I can say for certain. Tread carefully, Aqua."
    - talking about the Keyblade Graveyard.
  • "Aqua, you lost consciousness. Fortunately, Mickey found you and Ventus drifting in the Lanes Between, and brought you back to me to receive proper care. I am sorry, but there was no sign of Terra."
    after Aqua wakes up in Mysterious Tower.
  • "I will tell you what your friend needs right now. It is not your protection. He needs you to believe. You see, Ventus's heart hangs in the balance. It sleeps in the place between light and darkness. From all I can perceive, that means he will be looking for a friend--one who believes in him, to show him the way home. Just as long as you love him...then Ventus will be able to find you when he wakes. He can follow that love back to where he belongs--the realm of light."
    talking to Aqua about Ventus.

Kingdom Hearts II[edit]

  • "So, you are Sora. Now then, have you seen the King yet?"
    upon meeting Sora.
  • "Yes. I know. However, everything in your journey, Sora, is connected. Whether you will find your way home to the islands... Whether you will return alone or with your friend... And, whether or not the islands will still be there. And the key that connects them all is you, Sora."
    talking to Sora.
  • "Your past endeavors did prevent an immense effusion of Heartless from the great darkness; make no mistake about that. However, the Heartless are darkness made real---and darkness lingers yet in every heart. The Heartless are fewer. But while darkness exists in a single heart, it will be difficult to eliminate them."
    talking about why there are still Heartless.
  • "If one such as you, Donald, yields to the darkness in their heart, they too will become a Heartless. But you know this. The Heartless are always lurking and ever seeking to capture new hearts. Never let your guard down! Now then...At times, if someone with a strong heart and will---be they evil or good---becomes a Heartless, the empty shell they leave behind begins to act with a will of its own. An empty vessel whose heart has been stolen away... A spirit that goes on even as its body fades from existence---for you see, Nobodies do not truly exist at all. Nobodies may seem to have feelings, but this is a ruse---they only pretend to have hearts. You must not be deceived!"
    talking about the existence of Nobodies to Sora and company.
  • "While Heartless act on instinct, Nobodies function in a higher manner. They can think and plan. And it seems they are working towards a goal. What that goal is, we do not know. The King sensed the danger, and journeyed forth to fight it. He found the dark realm's Keyblade, and with it, closed the door. Now he's traveling from world to world, fighting the Heartless as he seeks the answer to the riddle of the Nobodies and Organization XIII."
    talking about Mickey, Nobodies and Organization XIII.
  • "Through there, you'll find three good fairies. If you ask, they'll create for you appropriate garments."
    talking about giving Sora new garments.
  • "You'll be departing after you've changed in the wardrobe. Take time now to prepare."
    talking to Sora about getting new clothes.
  • "Do not fear. If what the King suspected proves true, the worlds have prepared new pathways along which you may travel. These pathways may be utilized by unlocking special gates. How these gates are opened, I'm afraid I do not know... However, the Keyblade will serve as your guide. When a beam of light radiates from the Keyblade, return to the Gummi Ship. Though the worlds may seem far apart and out of reach, they nonetheless remain connected by invisible ties. As do our hearts."
    talking about how Sora and company can travel.
  • "Now then, that is all the information I can give to you. Go forth, Sora, Donald, and Goofy. Everyone is waiting."
    before Sora and company leaves.

Kingdom Hearts Re:coded[edit]

Signs of What's Next[edit]

  • "Is that so? Then that leaves only Terra."
    when Mickey says they are close to figuring out where Ven's heart is.
  • "Hmm... The question is: What does Xehanort intend to do next?"
    at Mickey's resolve to rescue all three of his friends.
  • "Correct, those two met their end. However, therein lies exactly our problem. Their destruction now guarantees the original Xehanort's reconstruction."
    talking to Mickey about Xehanort's resurrection.
  • "Xehanort's heart, once seized by his Heartless half, is now free. And his body, which had become his Nobody, has been vanquished. Both halves will now be returned to the whole. In short...this means Master Xehanort will return."
    talking to Mickey about Xehanort's resurrection.
  • "A man like Xehanort will have left many roads open."
    upon Mickey asking whether he thinks Xehanort is going to try something after returning.
  • "Yes, they are indeed strong. But...not true Keyblade Masters, like you."
    talking to Mickey about Sora and Riku.
  • "Tell me...would a single one of you suffice if what you faced was not a single one of him?"
    asking Mickey.
  • "Mickey, please summon Sora hither. Riku as well."
    requesting Mickey to summon Sora and Riku.
  • "To show us the Mark of Mastery."
    answering Mickey's question.

Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance[edit]

  • "As a Keyblade Master, Xehanort had a gift like few others. But such great minds are often plagued by a single great question. What is the essence of the human heart that weakens us, or empowers us? The answer, he believed, would be found in the "Keyblade War." What if the challenges of our past were, in fact, a map to the light and darkness that battles within us all? Xehanort had to know, so he renounced his duties as master and chose the seeker's life. Since then, in many a guise, he has clashed with protectors of the light—Keyblade wielders like yourselves. And mark my words—he will trouble us yet again."
    explaining to Sora and Riku about Xehanort.
  • "We must be ready. Which is why you, Sora and Riku, are to be tested for the mark of a true Keyblade Master. No doubt you fancy yourselves masters already, but it takes years of training. Only a true master can teach you the proper way. Both of you are self-taught Keyblade wielders—an impressive feat. However, the time has come for you to let go of preconceived notions, forget what you know about the Keyblade, and begin your training again with a clean slate."
    telling Sora and Riku to begin training.
  • "Very well, then. Sora and Riku, let your examination begin."
    beginning the Mark of Mastery Exam.
  • "If we are ever to strike down Xehanort, we need the individuals King Mickey spoke of in his letter. We must lead them out of sorrow and slumber, and back to our world. To do so, seven Sleeping Keyholes must be found and unlocked, and a great power retrieved. As you know, every world is walled off from the next, preventing travel between them. In the past, you could bridge these gaps because the walls were broken, or because you could open special Lanes with your Keyblades. But your new goals, the "Sleeping Keyholes," are harder to reach. You'll recall, in your first journey, that you brought many worlds back from the darkness—but some never returned completely. They still sleep, cut off from all outside channels. Not even the Heartless can enter. But these Sleeping Worlds are said to have their own manner of darkness. They are called "Dream Eaters," and there are two kinds—"Nightmares," which devour happy dreams—and benevolent "Spirits," which consume the Nightmares. The Dream Eaters will guide you, just as the Heartless once guided you, to the Keyhole you seek at the heart of each world."
    explains to Sora and Riku about the Sleeping Worlds and the Dream Eaters.
  • "Long ago, in the age of fairy tales, the World was filled with light—a gift, many believed, from an unseen power known as "Kingdom Hearts." You see, Kingdom Hearts was protected by its counterpart, the "χ-blade," so that none could ever lay hands on its mysteries. But in time, the World was overrun by legions who wanted the light all for themselves, and the first shadows were cast upon the land. These warriors crafted "Keyblades" in the image of the original χ-blade, and waged a great war over Kingdom Hearts. We call this the "Keyblade War." But though the war extinguished all light from the World, the darkness could not reach the brightness inside every child's heart. With that light, the World was remade as we know it today, with countless smaller worlds shining like stars in the sky. As for the real χ-blade, it did not survive the battle. The two elements that created it, one of darkness and one of light, shattered into twenty pieces—seven of light; thirteen of darkness. And as for the source of all light—the one true Kingdom Hearts—it was swallowed by the darkness, never to be seen again. As long as it remains there, even the brightest world will have its dark corners. After all, light begets darkness, and darkness is drawn to light. For this reason, some decided to use the Keyblade—a weapon designed to conquer the light—to defend the light instead. These were the first heroes of the Keyblade."
    explains to Sora and Riku about the Keyblade War.
  • "One dream is connected to another, which means we must choose in which "Sleeping World" you will begin. I will return you to the Destiny Islands just before they were swallowed by the darkness and plunged into sleep. Once dreams take you, you must let them guide you to the Sleeping Worlds. As there are seven pure lights, there are seven "Sleeping Keyholes." Unlocking these will both grant you new powers, and free the worlds from their wakelessness. Complete this task, and return here safely, and I will name you both...true masters."
    explains to Sora and Riku about the task they have to do.
  • "In the Sleeping Worlds, real time does not flow. Unless one restores the world by waking it from its slumber, it will stay locked in a dream forever. Thus, you may encounter familiar faces...but they are just figments of the dream. In actuality, they are sound asleep—trapped within a world that is also sleeping. What's more, while someone may no longer dwell in the real version of a world, dreams may paint a fuller picture, and restore what seems to be missing."
    explains to Sora and Riku about what happens when the Worlds dream.
  • "That raven is Maleficent's."
    talking about Diablo.
  • "Mickey, there is no time to waste."
    - telling King Mickey to go save Queen Minnie.
  • "The timing is too perfect, too calculated. Maleficent must sense a change in the forces of darkness. A change...like Xehanort."
    talking to himself about Maleficent and Xehanort.
  • "I sensed something was amiss nearly the moment Sora and Riku departed. Xehanort must have known what we were attempting before we even began."
    after Lea told him something.
  • "You must understand, this examination is in no way how the Mark of Mastery is usually found. However, in light of what they must do next...it was a necessity. If Sora and Riku complete their test, by finding the seven doors corresponding to the seven pure lights, they will return home with a new power. At that point, they will both be true masters. However, the dangers make this more trial than test."
    talking about Sora and Riku's task.
  • "Considering their ability, I would like to believe that they are. However, all my attempts to locate Sora and Riku end...questionably. Xehanort is a devious tactician. There is nothing we can do that he will not, to some extent, be able to predict."
    talking about Sora and Riku's location.

  • "As you can see, the Organization's members are complete people again. Xehanort will be no different. We cannot afford another moment's hesitation. We must consider any strategy to outwit Xehanort and catch him off guard."
    talking about Xehanort.
  • "I must warn you again—the road will not be easy."
    talking to Lea about his request.
  • "It's clear you cannot teach a cat to bark. But Merlin and the three good fairies are aiding him in a place that's more...temporally flexible. My hope is that he can at least learn to wield it. He certainly has fire, so I suppose it depends now on how strongly it burns."
    talking about Lea.
  • "Well, if we are running on the assumption Xehanort knew what we were planning, then he still would need to have been there—back in the very place and time when the Destiny Islands were lost to darkness. Otherwise, Sora and Riku would have been beyond his reach."
    talking about Xehanort being at Destiny Islands in the first place.
  • "No, as a matter of fact, I do not."
    when Mickey talks about Xehanort planning things ahead.
  • "For that to work, a version of himself would have had to exist at both source and destination. Not even Xehanort can transport his whole body across vast reaches of time."
    talking about the ability to travel through time.
  • "No! It cannot be. Could he be that cunning, possess that kind of foresight?"
    talking about Xehanort's Heartless' ability to travel through time.
  • "How? You cannot enter the world of a dream. Where will you go?"
    when Mickey wants to go and help Sora and Riku.
  • "Mickey, I was not able to locate Sora, but I sense Riku's presence in the realm between. Trust your heart, and I know you will find him."
    talking to Mickey about where Sora and Riku are.
  • "Seven lights, thirteen darknesses... Master Xehanort has been busy."
    talking about Master Xehanort's plan.
  • "No, Mickey. This affliction is not the same."
    when Mickey wonders if Sora's heart is sleeping too.
  • "In your Mark of Mastery exam, you were to unlock seven Sleeping Keyholes. By doing so, you would awaken those worlds from their prison of slumber, and also acquire the power to free a heart from its sleep. Riku, you unlocked those Keyholes within Sora's dreams. Therefore, it stands to reason that you now have the power to awaken Sora's heart."
    talking about Riku's power to awaken Sora's heart.
  • "And perhaps you may even succeed, Mickey. But there is no denying Riku stands the better chance, having dived into Sora's heart as long as he has."
    when Mickey offers to go into Sora's heart.
  • "You performed truly admirably, both of you."
    when Sora asks whether they passed the test.
  • "More than anything, I am grateful to have you both back from Xehanort's deception unharmed. And I am grateful to Lea, whose spontaneous actions turned the tides. I am also deeply sorry, for failing to perceive the danger and throwing you headlong into a perilous test. This experience has revealed many hidden truths, and we must gird ourselves for the great clash with darkness that lies before us. I believe we need a new Keyblade Master, one with a new kind of power."
    talking about the events that happened.
  • "Sora and Riku, you both deserve the honor. However, one of you braved the realm of sleep again to unlock the final Keyhole and save a friend. Riku, I name you our new true Keyblade Master."
    saying that Riku is the new Keyblade Master.

Another Guardian of Light[edit]

  • "The Keyblade Wars of yore plunged the true Kingdom Hearts into darkness, and the χ-blade was shattered. But the light still shining in the hearts of children rebuilt the world that we know today. And the light from the broken χ-blade was then divided into seven, to protect the number of pure hearts in the world."
    on the seven lights.
  • "Indeed. Those seven pure hearts form the very source of all light in the world. If they are lost, the world will again give way to shadow. Thus, even if we deliberately avoid finding our seven lights to avert another Keyblade War, Xehanort will still target the seven princesses in order to forge the χ-blade."
    on the importance of the seven princesses.
  • "To protect the seven pure hearts, we will need seven lights strong enough to stand against the thirteen darknesses."
    talking about gathering the seven guardians of light to protect the Princesses of Heart.
  • "I have come to learn that you, too, can wield a Keyblade. I am glad you are here."
    welcoming his newest student.

Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep 0.2: -A fragmentary passage-[edit]

  • "The great battle with Xehanort is almost upon us. As you know, we must take action to keep the seven pure lights safe, and thus we must hasten to assemble the seven guardians of light. It is time to return to our world the three Keyblade wielders we lost over a decade ago. Ventus, Terra, and Aqua must be saved from their sad end, for they have more to achieve. Following their first battle with Xehanort, Ventus's heart refused to awaken, and so Aqua found a safe location to conceal him. But when she set off in search of her other missing friend Terra, she fell to a place from which there is no return without outside help."
    talking about bringing back Terra, Aqua, and Ventus from their sad fates.
  • "Do not be rash, Riku. As Mickey told you clearly in his story, reaching the realm of darkness the first time was not a simple task. And even if we had found a way back in, regrettably none of us possessed the necessary means to get Aqua back out safely. So I forbade Mickey from telling you, let alone going after her."
    explaining to Riku why they couldn't go after Aqua.
  • "That much is obvious. If not you, then certainly Sora would have staged a reckless attempt at rescue."
    talking to Riku that saving Aqua would be reckless.
  • "I have entrusted the wizard Merlin to oversee the training for our new Keyblade wielders, yourself and Lea."
    telling Kairi that Merlin will train her and Lea.
  • "Mickey, take these along with you. The three good fairies asked that you be presented with them. They are new vestments which will shield the both of you from the darkness."
    giving Mickey and Riku suitcases filled with new clothes.
  • "The others all had important work to do. So I sent them on their way."
    upon Sora's arrival from the Sleeping Worlds.
  • "We have matters to discuss."
    ending Sora and Donald's arguing.
  • "In order to defeat Xehanort, there are allies we must gather, acting now to rouse them from their slumber. We have discussed this before, Sora."
    reminding Sora about how to defeat Xehanort.
  • "Your Mark of Mastery exam was conducted in the hopes you would acquire the power to wake them. However, the darkness nearly took control of you, and your grasp of your new abilities leaves much to be desired. Furthermore, Xehanort nearly made you his vessel, and in the process stripped you of most of the power you had gained by then. I suspect you have already noticed this, correct?"
    telling Sora what happened to his power when Xehanort nearly made him his vessel.
  • "Yes. Chip and Dale are currently analyzing data that Ansem the Wise provided to Riku and which could offer us a clue to retrieving our friends' lost hearts. I have very high hopes for this data. However, our greatest chance of stopping Xehanort's plan still lies with you, Sora. If you trust the guidance your heart gives, I know we will find all of the guardians of light."
    informing Sora that he is the one who will stop Xehanort's plans.
  • "But first, you must regain all the strength you have lost. Perhaps it is foolish to expect a complete recovery, but it is absolutely vital you perfect one power—the power of waking, which you failed to master during your exam. There's someone who lost his strength and found it again, a true hero to whom you ought to pay a visit. Perhaps he can point you in the right direction."
    advising Sora to regain his power and that Hercules will be able to help him.
  • "I would have it no other way. I put Sora in your hands."
    permitting Donald and Goofy to accompany Sora.

Kingdom Hearts III[edit]
