Talk:Ansem, Seeker of Darkness

From Kingdom Hearts Wiki: A world of information not accessible by Gummiship

Move?[edit]

Would anyone be opposed to moving this? "Xehanort's Heartless" is more what he is than one he's called. Maybe what he calls himself, i.e. Ansem, Seeker of Darkness? I'll go ahead and do it if no one objects over the next few days. Scottch 05:28, 13 January 2007 (UTC)

I really think it should be called Xehanort's Heartless. Ansem may be a name he stole and uses, but it's not who he really is. It's what everyone in the game calls him, so why not here? DannyP 18:01, 30 March 2007 (UTC)
Didn't see your reply, so this is late...
Anyway, it's definitely not the only thing he's called in the games, he's called that by a few characters even after it's been made clear who he is, especially at the end of the game. Besides, it's also the name he takes, it just makes more sense to me to call him by a name than an "object description", for lack of a better phrase. He's also called "Ansem" for a full two of the three games, and the first half of the last game (in the sparse times it's mentioned). Although he was originally thought to be Ansem the Wise and that turned out to be untrue, it doesn't change the fact that he identified as "Ansem" still. I guess it sort of comes down to "what's in a name", but I think the use of the name makes it his identity, even if it's based on a lie. Scottch 21:04, 3 May 2007 (UTC)

Ansem, Seeker of Darkness was the name he chose, so that should be what the page is called. it shouldnt be what he is, Sora's page isnt called Kingdom Key weilder, thats what he is not who he is. 1a2b3c 11:50, 30 May 2009 (UTC)

I agree this page sould be called Ansem, Seeker of Darkness just like Xemnas page is Xemnas and not Xehanort's Nobody also the name could be consider a bit of a spoiler to those who haven't played KHII.Masgrande 21:17, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Also, it shouldnt matter wether or not Ansem stole the name, all the oranization members stole there names from there former human selves. the only difference between the two is that Org. XIII made their names into anagrams.

Merger[edit]

I have another question. Couldn't we just merge this with the World of Chaos and Guardian? After all, both sections are stubs, and both creatures are never seen without him. Thoughts?

Good idea. It'd be a perfect fit for a battle technique kind of section. DannyP 15:52, 27 March 2007 (UTC)

abilites[edit]

sorry to bother the editors but I think there should be a section called abilites which lists all of "Ansems" named attacks. I know in kh he just grunted but every time he saves up 3 cards in chain of memories we see the name of the slate underneth.

sincerly luis

PS I also reckomend we do this with all other charectors but also file magic underneth abilites (only because very few charectors use spells) this should go with all charectors like tarzans healing herb ability (because it a heal)


That sounds like a very logical idea. I wouldn't mind doing that on various pages! Maybe even describe the attacks! Muhahahaha!

This page contridicts itself![edit]

This page can't seem to decide if Xehanort's Heartless looks human because of strong will or a warped Riku. I'm not sure whether to delete one of the theories, show that they're theories, or a third option. Any ideas? 96.28.108.27 23:57, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Unsure about this statement[edit]

It says "Xehanort's Heartless body is actually Riku's body. When he fully gained control of it he changed the body's appearance" But wouldn't this imply that Riku had lost his body and become a heartless, and thus would have a Nobody? But since the latter two are untrue, I don't see how Xehanort's Heartless could have been doing anything other than making his own form look like Riku's on Destiny Islands at the end of the game. Can someone explain?

Twoface13 - There's someone with a "key" -- the key to our survival.
TALK - No... They'll pay for this!
It's true that Riku lost his Body but kept his heart. Therefore he does not have a nobody, nor is he a heartless. However as Xehanort's heartless uses his Riku's body, he could be considered Riku's nobody. But he's not. He uses Riku's body because it was drawn to the Darkness, and he lost his true body. Xehanort's Heartless already had a set figure, and Riku's body changed to his form.

FA icon.png I didn't put that category there. But come to think of it, wasn't he the one who usurped Ansem the Wise's leadership ? By banishing Ansem to the Realm of Nothingness, his Heartless became the ruler of what was then known as Hollow Bastion, whilst his Nobody took charge of The World that Never Was.

He's the ruler of the End of the World, the final level that is in and of itself the Heartless HQ. It's all but outright said that's probably the King of Heartless or something like that. Also Trois, I'm pretty sure that when Ansem was at his biggest threat Maleficent was the ruler of Hollow Bastion, not Ansem.

Names - Unsure[edit]

Just looked at the Riku Replica page, and noticed it calling Xehanort's Heartless "Ansem." Is this because he wasn't known as Xehanort's Heartless at the time of CoM? I think it makes more sense calling him by his true name....Endless Oblivion

"Xehanort's Heartless" isn't a name, though, and "Ansem" belongs to him just as much as the Organization member's names belong to themselves. He was attempting to take someone's reputation, yes, but "Ansem" is still who the Heartless was.
Plus, it's a rather large part of the plot, them not knowing who DiZ is yet and thinking the Heartless was Ansem, and it would be confusing to anyone who's not played KH2 yet.Glorious CHAOS! 16:12, 14 July 2009 (UTC)

Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png I see how that makes sense...Thanks.

Other forms[edit]

Well, his cloaked form is his true Heartless form, while his fancy silver-haired form is merely how he manipulates riku's body (perhaps that's what Riku will look like grown up?) So we should be clear on that in the article.

Also, we might want to have a section covering the guardian, though there's not really much to say beyond battle stuff. We should add as much non-battle info as we can, though.

Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png By Cloaked, do you mean the Organization Cloak or the cloak from KH1? And no, I don't think that he attained that form because of controlling Riku. Xehanort had hair similar to that, and so does Xemnas...Xemnas is closer in hair design to Xehanort because he is Xehanort's empty body given new life after the Xehanort's Heartless was born.It specifically says Xehanort retained his physical appearance as a Heartless and Nobody. That means the "fancy" silver-haired form IS his true form. He just wore the cloak from KH1 to disguise himself until the time was right. But I don't know... and since the Guardian is not truly counted as a Heartless, I say we merge it. And the Guardian is actually a part of Xehanort's Heartless...

Battle Quotes[edit]

TerraCharm.png Question to those who could answer. Why are these the only battle quotes on his page? These are technically Riku's... Shouldn't we instead use his quotes from End of the World? I understand he controlled Riku when he used these quotes, but we don't use the Dark Riku battle video on his page, so this doesn't make sense...


Symbol Character - Mickey.png
FA icon.png Well, let's see : the quotes from the actual Xehanort's Heartless I can think of are...
  • "Come, guardian!"
  • "Submit!!"
  • "Come, open your heart."
  • "Insolent."
  • "What do you hope to accomplish?"
  • "Do not deny."
  • "My strength returns..."
  • "The final darkness returns."

Correct me if I'm wrong, and use these quotes where you see fit.

Why[edit]

Why the f**k does everyone keep the deleting the guardian section?!

Why?!


EMO_NA1.jpg
xNaminéx - 大キライだけど好き!
TALK - I am...glad.
Mainly because there is absolutely no reason for the Guardian to have its own section, as most if not all of the attacks are made by the Guardian, wich will lead to it being mentioned numorous other times thoughout the article. Not to mention the fact that the "Xehanort's Heartless's Guardian" section was a short, puny group of sentences that had little information and didn't need its own section. That's why the f**k we keep deleteing it.


I just think the Guardian should get it's own page back.

Because the edit was absolute trash.
  1. The story bit was completely redundant to the story covering when Riku took Xehanort's form.
  2. The "speculation" was not only completely ridiculous, but the links all pointed in the wrong directions.
  3. The edit ripped up a ref note.
  4. The rest of it is all battle strategy info, which is covered on the boss page.

Finally, "Guardian" is not its name. "Guardian" is a Surveillance-type Heartless. The only thing we know about Ansem's guardian is that it always appears with him, even when it's actually Riku. Thus, there's no reason to believe it's not simply the Pureblood part of Xehanort's Heartless.

y'know,, you don't have to be dicks about it, guys.

If the anon is going to cuss, then I feel perfectly justified in being frank about the lousiness of the edit. I re-added as much information as could be salvaged - most of it was, as I explained, trash. The guardian does not need specifically separate coverage, as it is simply an extension of the rest of Xehanort's Heartless, as the article covers.

I'm a staff member. Not a god. Please stop calling me "sama".

If you're frustrated about your work being deleted, don't put it on a wiki, or at least, back it up. I have ten years of notes and fan-documents on my PC, and only a small fraction of them are ported to wikis. As the editing notice says "If you don't want your writing to be edited mercilessly and redistributed at will, then don't submit it here."

Shouldn't there be warnings for the spoilers? If someone new to the game read even some of the article, sure he's/she's confused and reads just more?

Just suggesting.

After a certain point, it becomes ridiculous to concede to spoiler warnings - for example, everyone knows how King Kong or the Sixth Sense ends, it would be strange for us to have spoiler warnings on articles like that.
Currently, only information on Days, Mobile, coded, and BBS has spoiler warnings, as they are new/have not been released.Glorious CHAOS! 17:02, November 14, 2009 (UTC)

Other Emblem.png True the name has been proven false but so has Xemnas's name. Ansem is the name that he picked for himself just as Xemnas is the name that his nobody picked for himself. If this page is going to remane Xehanort's Heartless because of that reason, then Xemnas's page should be moved to Xehanort's Nobody. Like I said before, I think Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless) would be the most appropriate title. As for causing problem on the wiki, it wouldn't mess up any links if we left a redirect behind and if we left (xehanort's Heartless in parenthesis, we wouldn't have to go through and change the text of multiple articles. But that's just my opinion on the matter. Feel free to disagree.

Interdiction KHD.png Unless I'm mistaken (which is totally possible), he is called "Xehanort's Heartless" in the KHII Journal. Xemnas' name was in no way proven false. He's called "Xemnas" everywhere--including the Journal. And the entire Nobody naming system is based on the fact that they mix up the letters of their original beings' names and add an "X"--i.e. they pick the names themselves or have Xemnas pick them. By your logic we'd need to change "Roxas" to "Sora's Nobody" too. And what about the members without reveald original names? "Demyx's Original Being's Nobody"? The Xemnas analogy doesn't hold water. That said, "Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless)" isn't a bad idea (I like it better than "Ansem, the Seeker of Darkness; too wordy), but I'd still prefer what the journal calls him.

Earthshaker Keychain KHBBS.png Were I too side with either of the two titles, I'd suggest Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless), but I am in full agreement with LapisScarab. If the journal calls him Xehanort's Heartless, then we should do that here, as well. My point is we should leave the article as-is. Two names would lead to things like changing Ansem the Wise to Ansem the Wise (DiZ) and Pete to Pete (Captain Pete) (Captain Justice) (Captain Dark). It'd be too confusing and unnecessary.

TALK - Rather a stubborn ol' goat, wouldn't ya say?
Other Emblem.png I see your points and I do agree that he should be called what the journal calls him even if it's more of an adjective that a name. All the same, I still feel that Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless) would be the best name. In response to what LapisScarab said, what I meant by Xemnas's name being proven false is that it's an amalgam of Ansem with an X added even though his priginal name wasn't Ansem. However, we still call him that because that was his choosen name and we don't call him Xehanort's Nobody or some amalgam of Xehanort with another X added so I feel that we should apply the same standards to this character. In response to EO, I don't think we'd have to change the names of those articles because their titles are their true names that everyone calls them (e.i.: the article is caused Ansem the Wise so adding (Diz) would be the eqivilent of moving this article to Xehanort's Heartless (Ansem)). This has an adjective decribing the character as the title so it's a bit different but I do see your point.

Interdiction KHD.png Of course we don't use an anagram of "Xehanort" with an "X" added. We don't make up names here. We call him Xemnas because he's called that in every Journal entry in the series, and because there's no one else to confuse him with. I think that's another big reason as to why we changed this page to "Xehanort's Heartless"; to differentiate "Ansem" and "Ansem the Wise". And in response to the "everyone calls him Ansem" thing, dont the characters in KHII stop calling him Ansem and start using "Xehanort's Heartless" once they learn who he is?

TALK - Rather a stubborn ol' goat, wouldn't ya say?
Other Emblem.png All I'm saying is that he was called Ansem for two and a half games (three and a half if you count Reverse/Rebirth as a seperate game) and those looking for information on Ansem from the original Kingdom Hearts that have only played the original Kingdom Hearts would find themselves in the mist of a major spoiler for the series. Just to make it clearer, I think we should go with Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless) since it uses the name that he choose for himself with the true identity of the character in parenthesis.
At the very end of the game, they call it Xehanort's Heartless. However, it is still called "Ansem" in Days, which was released after KH2, indicating that it's still a valid name. It is also the name that it gave itself, which is much more valid from an in-universe perspective than the weird moniker Sora and Mickey give him. There is also a lot of pages on the wiki that still call it "Ansem" because it doesn't make sense to be calling it Xehanort's Heartless in respect to KH1, CoM, and Days.Glorious CHAOS! 02:35, March 21, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png They learn that he is not Ansem halfway through the game, though. Days is chronologically behind KHII, and thus behind when the characters learned who he was, right? As for spoilers, they are almost unavoidable on the wiki, especially for the first game's characters. And doesn't the title "Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless)" give the connection away immediately? I was under the impression that our policy was to use the most recent name of a charatcer, but if we must move it (which I'm still not convinced is needed), perhaps "Ansem (Heartless)" would be better, at least to avoid spoilers?

Other Emblem.png Ansem (Heartless) is a good idea but I still think Ansem (Xehanort's Heartless) is a little bit better. True it is a spoiler but it at least makes the article a bit easier to find. People who know him as Xehanort's Heartless could easily find the article and those who know him as Ansem would also, in theory be able to find the article better.

Interdiction KHD.png Now you've changed your reasoning for the move. Are you concered with spoilers? If so then it would be better to leave out "Xehanort's" which spoils the fact that they are connected. If you're concerned about confusing people who know him as Xehanort's Heartless, the best way to avoid that would to, well, not move the article.

TALK -
I prefer a "most proper name" approach, I guess, and since there's no reason why "Ansem, Seeker of Darkness" is any less valid than "Xemnas", I would choose that. I mean, while Xehanort may have been masquerading as Ansem the Wise, and that's false, there's no real reason to say that the Heartless isn't allowed to name itself. I got the distinct impression from KH2 that they were not trying to use its proper name - they were trying to keep from confusing themselves, and they were continuing with the incredibly rude bit they had been going on for that game - talking to intelligent Heartless and Nobody as if they were just objects, and not people, i.e., they would call Roxas "Sora's Nobody" (and I recall that people do in Days and KHII, any way, especially DiZ).

Basically, "Xehanort's Heartless" is what he is, not who he is, and since he was already calling himself Ansem before he became a Heartless, the new entity was only ever known as "Ansem, Seeker of Darkness". It's the difference between calling it a "Red Nocturne" or a "fire-using flying Heartless". They're both technically correct, and are used in the journals and games, but one is obviously more proper.

Other Emblem.png @LapisScarab I didn't change my reason for the move. There are several reasons and I'm just putting them all out there. Spoilers are only one reason why it should be moved (but a more minor reason). The main reason why I think we should move the article, as I've said before, is because Xehanort's Heartless only describes the character and that Ansem is the name he choose for himself.

@KrytenKoro I never thought about it that way but you make a very good point. The name DOES seem to be a way of talking down to the character. This only confirms my belief that this article should be moved.

On one hand, the gamesprite is low quality, even though it's larger, but on the other, our guide image is kind of small.

Honestly, both seem "official" to me. As long as it isn't fake crap like the first Vanitas Keyblade image (where someone inserted their own speculation of the hilt) or the Fresh Breeze image (which was made wholecloth on a graphics editor, and had so many errors it was laughable), it should be fine. We use sprites ripped from the games all over the place.

Right now, though, I think our pic is fine. It's just large enough, and is the higher quality image. If we can get it bigger, that's daisies, but I don't think we need a betterpic template.

Renders and Artwork[edit]

Why is everyone insistent on using crappy, I repeat, crappy renders when his official artwork is the absolute best official image of him there ever will be? Every official render of Ansem sucks. In fact, I've yet to see a good render of anything on this site. They're all blurry and have tattered edges. What do the people of this website have against clean, 2D artwork? Or are they all just 3D-whores? Dachimotsu7734 02:04, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Yes, whining and insulting is the way to get your point across... One reason I can give you is that official artwork is not always true to the appearance of the character in the game. Take Lea for example. Also, that his official artwork is the "absolute best official image of him" is entirely your opinion.LapisLazuliScarab02:11, June 29, 2010 (UTC)
I apologize for the whore remark, but your response doesn't satisfy me. "Not always true to appearances" may be a good counter-argument for many characters, but not for Ansem. His appearance in-game is indentical to that of his artwork. The article has a header asking for a better image, so I gave it one. Opinion or no, I think everyone would agree that we'll never find a better picture for him than his artwork. Dachimotsu7734 02:24, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

Not necessarily. We could get a better render at a later date. I admit I don't know for certain, but I would imagine the reason we prefer to have renders as the main images for all the characters is for consistency. It's jarring to have 90% of the articles leading off with a render, and then a couple major ones with artwork.LapisLazuliScarab02:37, June 29, 2010 (UTC)

TALK - Parley!
"Ansem appears to have characteristics of both Emblem and Pureblood Heartless, in both his human and world forms. In both forms, he carries the Heartless Emblem on his chest, the distinguishing mark of an Emblem Heartless. Though this could possibly be an article of clothing for his human form, the emblem is notably absent from Master Xehanort version of the same outfit. Furthermore, the shadowy symbiote attached to him in both forms possesses the "hollow heart" shared by many other Pureblood Heartless. Though it is uncertain what the situation of this Heartless is, it is possible that this makes him both an Emblem and Pureblood Heartless."

This sounds like either speculation or it should be re-worded.

Xehanort's heartless' INITIAL APPEARANCE.[edit]

I can't believe that nobody added this already. From what we've seen in BBS, Master Xehanort walks with a rather hunched back. This is rather similar to the gait of Xehanort's Heartless in KH prior to his possession of Riku. Is it possible that since the re-energized Heartless near the endgame looks almost identical to young Master Xehanort, the brown-cloaked man is his older form?

It would make sense, considering Xehanort is an amalgamation of Master Xehanort's heart and Terra's body (Well, technically his heart, soul and body, with his mind being in the LS). This means the heart within the heartless should be MX's, giving it his physical features. We've only ever seen XH when he was somehow using Riku as a conduit. Yes, this includes the final battle in R/R.

He's never looked like young MX, he looks like Terra-Xehanort. Besides this is speculation, and unsuitable for the page. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 01:08, December 19, 2010 (UTC)

Emblem or Pureblood?[edit]

76.232.3.42 04:24, December 27, 2010 (UTC)On the page for Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, it says that it's unclear whether he falls into the Emblem or Pureblood Heartless. In my opinion, he is a Pureblood Heartless. Sure, he lacks the black skin and has the Heartless emblem on his chest, but I think I remember that in one of the Ansem Reports in KH2 it says that Emblem Heartless are artificially created and that Pureblood Heartless are formed when, well, when someone yields to the darkness in his/her heart. Xehanort the apprentice willingly gave his heart to darkness right? So, I think he falls under the Pureblood category. If I'm wrong, tell me otherwise, please! 76.232.3.42 04:24, December 27, 2010 (UTC)A Wikia Contributor

No, Emblem Heartless are created (like Ansem did when he gave up his heart).

Ansem is Master Xeahnorts heartless?[edit]

Isnt Ansem Master Xeahnorts heartless?Due to the fact he is MXs heart wrapped in darkness or is the darkness in his heart?I mean the outfits are the same and even the same exact lines.When MX took over Terra in kh bss he said the whole line about "All worlds began in darkness and all so end the heart is no different darkness grows with it sprouts with it consumes it and all retun to once it came.I swear Ansem says the same exact thing in kh 1 when he fights Sora in the end of the game.So sence he has the same outfit as MX says the same things wouldnt that make him his heartless?I mean he has to be his heartless.When Terra plunged himself with the keyblade he destoryed his heart and Eraqus.Similiar to what Sora did in kh 1.He plunged himself to free MX heart but since that keyblade doesnt unlock hearts all he did was destroy his own heart and Eraqus's.Meaning MX heart still resisded in Terras body.Meaning:

Terra: His own body and Soul and his heart(With Eraqus inside) Terra-Xeahnort:Terras body and Soul with MX heart. Ansem, Seeker of Darkness: MXs heart wrapped in darkness or the darkness in it or both. Xemnas:Terras soul and body. Lingering Sentinent: Terras mind. Msterious Firgure:Possibly Terras heartless(Because when Terra plunged himself he created a pureblood heartless)(Unlikely) No Heart: MX's Lingering Sentinent.

Brown Robed Figure[edit]

We should rename him either Xehanort's Heartless or the Brown Robed Figure, as Ansem was just an alias, while Xehanort's heartless is his real name and Brown Robed Figure is the name Nomura gives when speaking about him.--124.168.242.102 09:08, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

He gives this title officially when possessing Riku. He also has this name as his Report name, so our only choices are either Ansem (Heartless) or Ansem, Seeker of Darkness. Brown Robed Figure is just an alias, it's like Unknown for Young Xehanort, however we know he's Ansem, and Xehanort's Heartless is an extremely generic title and is a simple name. I'd understand if it were our only choice but it isn't. So we use what's best to keep them different from others, it is also the reason why Xemnas is not "Xehanort's Nobody" and Roxas is not "Sora's Nobody" either. Ay, dios mio! I might be late tomorrow. - Erry 09:40, 22 May 2012 (UTC)
There's also the fact that "Nomura always calls him Brown Robed Figure or Xehanort's Heartless" is an outright lie. Nearly all of the Ultimania dialogues and interviews, and even the latest games, call him Ansem. Honestly, until I see the original text of the latest KH3D interview, I'm not likely to believe Nomura even said it there, given how often the community's fan-translators like to make up their own names for things and stick them in as if that's what Nomura actually said. As for Xehanort's Heartless, that's a descriptor of what he is, not how he refers to himself.
Also also, a name is your alias. This series isn't even Merlin, or something, where everybody has "one true name that is fundamentally wired into their being". Your name is whatever you call yourself.192.249.47.177 13:21, 22 May 2012 (UTC)

Do it as a secondary profile, like with Vanitas as "Masked Boy" or the various Sora profiles.192.249.47.177 21:26, 19 July 2012 (UTC)

Cleanup?[edit]

The template thingy says the captions need to be revised, but I don't see anything wrong with them...If the answer is super obvious, then sorry. I'm new here. ZeypherMage7 (talk) 03:59, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Feel free to ignore that for now, there's a bit of a caption war going on at the moment... or at least, there was recently. Once it's settled and we've decided upon an official format for captions, we'll make sure all pages meet those standards. RadiantSymbol Character - Roxas.pngChaos 04:09, 26 August 2012 (UTC)

Right. Thanks for the info. ZeypherMage7 (talk) 09:55, 31 August 2012 (UTC)

I'm confused[edit]

the two Ansem pages-Seeker of darkness and "the wise"-both say that said Ansem is the one who gave Riku control over his dark mode. Could someone tell me which page is right and fix the one that's wrong? 97.81.35.41 21:54, 19 March 2013 (UTC) Rex Ronald Rilander

The Seeker of Darkness is the one who gave Riku his Dark Mode. However, the "Ansem, Seeker of Darkness" who gives Riku this ability is Ansem the Wise (DiZ) in disguise, and not the true Ansem who possessed Riku in the past. Both pages are accurate. - Challenge Sigil KHD.pngEternal Nothingness XIIIChallenge Sigil KHD.png 22:03, 19 March 2013 (UTC)

Point taken, but it's not exactly clearly stated. And thanks for telling me. 97.81.35.41 22:16, 19 March 2013 (UTC) Rex Ronald Rilander

name...?[edit]

Why would Xehanort's Heartless still be called "Ansem, Seeker of Darkness" when there are eleven or twelve other seekers of darkness soon to be revealed? And since he stole the name "Ansem," shouldn't his real identity be known as "Xehanort's Heartless?" just wondering :)

Well, if he stole the name "Ansem" then his identity is now "Ansem", as that is the name he rightfully stole. We'll get more information concerting the other seekers of darkness as it becomes available to us! For now, please post questions like this in the forums instead. Thanks!
