Keyblade Difference[edit]

Has anyone else noticed that in the gameplay videos for Birth by Sleep, the teeth of Ven's keyblade now face the other way. I only brought this up because the article says he strikes with the toothed edge, which, granted, he does in the original Birth by Sleep video. Insignificant, I know, just something that's been bugging me. Adaxredael 23:33, 26 February 2009 (UTC)


Ven left-handed?[edit]

It is very strange for someone state that Ven is left-handed, as seen in the secret teaser trailer the Gathering and secret teaser trailer Birth by Sleep. Especially when we have all seen that Ven holds his Keyblade in his right hand in Birth by Sleep game play. I don't even see how that little bit was even put on his page when there is even a picture of Ven holding his Keyblade in his right hand.. The teaser videos may lay down the ground work, but it is rather silly to reference them as factual. Were I am getting is that the little bit on Ven being a lefty should be modified.

Kthnxbai.

Ven seems to be ambidextrous, just like Roxas. Hyperwre_2.0 08:10, November 26, 2009 (UTC)

Ventus' and Roxas' Themes[edit]

I was really hoping that someone would put not only Ventus' theme in the article but that is sounds like a more complex variation of Roxas' theme.

and also how is it that some of you have these really awesome "template" thingies (I have no idea what they are called) that have a picture and a quote in a speech box? How can I make one? Under The Heavens 14:21, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

a question[edit]

Firaga44 - Everyone's favorite anime nerd is back and kicking!Well not everyone's favorite but you people get the idea >.<
TALK - All i hear during that cutscene blah blah blah.
I have a question.When did they say that in english that Jesse Mccartney is gonna voice Ven?(just wondering).


Is that even confirmed yet? If it's not it shouldn't be on the page...

The Wikipedia says he is going voice Ven, but I dunno. I hope so.--NinjaSheik 20:04, October 31, 2009 (UTC)

I wouldnt mind...but has it been confirmed?! aah oh well. it believable i mean rly it just seems like all he has to do is make "The Roxas Voice" n and make it sound a lil younger. (i still havnt gotten over the fact that its Jesse Mccartney who voiced Roxas....but whatever) -Xero

Jesse McCartney just said the following on Twitter:
"Recording yet another Kingdom Hearts Game. All you Gamers eat your heart out! Man what a process tho. First recordin was in 2005 for game 1"
(Yes, I follow him on twitter, don't judge me T_T)
https://twitter.com/JesseMcCartney/status/6211849278
Anyway, since it's very unlikely that this would be for Roxas (They've already covered every moment of Roxas' existence from Birth to Reuinion) I think it's pretty safe to assume he's talking about Ven. I know it's not 100% confirmation, but its pretty strong evidence that Jesse is voicing Ventus. Which I'm excited about :D --Zephyrus11 20:57, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

YAHOO~! JESSE'S GOING TO VOICE FOR VEN!! YAY~!--NinjaSheik 21:18, November 30, 2009 (UTC)

The Armor[edit]

the part of the article about the armor needs to be edited. In the TGS 2009 trailer when he is riding his keyblade the armor is different colors, and recent scans show him wearing the same colored armor from the trailer. The cape has also been removed

Hmmmm...i was just wondering that. i HAVE seen Ven in 2 or 3 diffrnt armor colors. lets see...trailer one. scans...oh thats two. still. odd isnt it?

TALK - It will keep us connected
Maggosh's most recent edit just got me thinking. Considering that it's not actually Ven, but rather Xigbar seeing Xion as Ven, does Days really count as an appearance?
DaysXemnas.png

TALK - That may be... however, what other choice might we have had?
Interdiction KHD.png Cameo appearance maybe.

That doesn't make sense why make Ventus first appear in Days I mean his first appearce is The Gathering. I mean the first appearce means where they first appear I mean like Stich first appeared in Lilo and Stich movie not Kingdom Hearts II. So Ventus should be The Gathering not Days. --Cococrash11 03:29, December 22, 2009 (UTC)Cococrash11

The game template includes times when the subject was just shown or mentioned. It doesn't have to be a physical appearance, or Xehanort wouldn't show up in KHII, for instance.

Xemnas?[edit]

OKay, how do we know that Xemnas sees Xion as Ven? I can't remember that being in Days. I remember Xigbar, but not Xemnas. Can someone clarify?--User:PrincessAndie8thprincessofheart/sig 20:57, January 9, 2010 (UTC)

In the Secret reports. Xigbar comments that both of them see her as Ven, and I think Xemnas might mention it too.--Lapis ofthe Night 21:36, April 23, 2010 (UTC)

Xehanort'SPOILERS'[edit]

[1]Does this mean that Ventus used to be Master Xehanort's apprentice before he created Vanitas.--Masgrande 03:40, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

Yup. It seems that Xehanort was putting Ven in a life-or-death situation, hoping he'd call on dark power, but nope. So he went ahead and made Vanitas.—Urutapu 03:51, January 13, 2010 (UTC)

but something bothers me, if vanitas killed ventus at the same time as he and he x-blade died, that means he was stronger than ventus. if he is ventus's darkness and yet he is stronger than him (wich is his light) so ventus originally had kind of a darkness afinity (like terra or riku) because his darkness was more powerfull than his light?--you and I will have to join together! 02:13, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Trivia section needs some work[edit]

Several, if not all, of the entries in Ventus's trivia section aren't really trivia in-so-far as they are matter-of-fact statements made about the character as well as including unverified research and spoilers. Some of this information could be integrated into the article or disposed of.


Neverfate 17:56, January 18, 2010 (UTC)

Keyblade Graveyard[edit]

Isn't Ventus's homeworld Keyblade Graveyard? I mean his awakeing's back ground is the Keyblade Graveyard. Beside Ventus just met Terra, and Aqua after Master Xehanort created Vanitas. So Land of Departure isn't Ventus's homeworld but the Keyblade Graveyard. --Cococrash11 07:55, January 23, 2010 (UTC)Cococrash11

I think when it says Homeworld, it means the world they primarily live in, not the one they were born in. In that sence Land of Departure is his home. Dellcath 20:31, January 28, 2010 (UTC)

Ven wasn't even born in the Keyblade Graveyard, I don't know where you're getting that. Just because it's on his Awakening, doesn't mean it's his homeworld. I think we can all agree that we don't know enough about the Awakening to make those assumptions.--Nitrous X 22:26, February 10, 2010 (UTC)

Master Xehanort didn't mention when or where he met Ventus. Not even mentions in Xehanort's Report it only says he met him like destiny. MX train Ventus in Keyblade Graveyard. He didn't even visit Land of Departure or Destiny Island before when his heart was shattered by MX. Also the Princess of Hearts' Belle, Snow White, Cinderlla, Aurora, Sora shows background of the sceneary of the homeworld. If you still aren't convined atleast put LOD in other residence since you guys aren't even sure which homeworld he's on. --Cococrash11 01:43, March 31, 2010 (UTC)Cococrash11

behind Ven wielding his Keyblade in reverse? It's pretty unique and makes him the only character in the series, aside from Saïx, to fight in this manor.XYZ. 21:11, March 30, 2010 (UTC)

If Vantias is the darkness from Ven's heart...[edit]

Does this not make Ventus' heart pure, and therefore, him a 'prince of heart'? Would be an interesting plot point later on, I think. Silvermistshadow 05:56, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

Not exactly. The extraction of darkness from his heart seriously screwed up Ventus Kaihedgie 07:09, May 2, 2010 (UTC)

I disagree that Ventus could be a prince of heart, as every princess of heart is born with a pure heart, whereas Ven has had the darkness take out of his heart and was not born with a pure heart. Also, this topic is more suitable for a forum rather then Ventus's discussion page. 07:25, May 2, 2010 (UTC) Danjam

But in that same instance, Ventus' body acts just like a Princess of Heart when they lose their hearts, unlike Sora, who lost his body (which made Roxas) and became a Heartless. Ventus was more like Kairi, especially once the darkness was removed. We also have no idea what makes any girl (since as seen from Kairi and Alice) into a Princess of Heart, so if what makes them Princesses of Heart the removal of their darkness then it's completely plausible. KyrianXVII 19:50, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Ven & Roxas[edit]

I know that Sora's and Ven's hearts are connected, but I don't know how that justifies Roxas looking(and most likely sounding) the exact same as Ven. How is this possible? In simple terms PLEASE. 169.139.1.20 15:40, May 27, 2010 (UTC)DialgaMan, the master of Time

In the Interview in the BBS Ultimania with Nomura it's mentioned, that Ventus' heart formed Roxas' body when Sora stabbed himself with the Keyblade of People's Heart. So the heart was with Roxas all the time and that's why he looks almost as Ventus and has feelings even though he is a Nobody. ----ShardofTruth 15:50, May 27, 2010 (UTC)

I've got a question based on the Sora's Heartless page, where it says that Sora, beginning after he stabbed himself with the Keyblade of People's Hearts and continuing through Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories and into the end of Roxas's Kingdom Hearts II had been a Heartless the entire time and that Kairi's heart recreated his body. So if Roxas had Ventus's heart, where was Sora's heart? KyrianXVII 17:29, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Inside Sora's recreated heart. Sora becomes a heartless, he had his heart in that pat but his body was made of darkness, when Kairi hugs him the body made of darkness becomes a body made of light and thisbody takes the shape of Sora just like Sora's original body took the shape of Ventus--Xabryn 17:47, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Well, Roxas had the body. Sora just had the heart, and Kairi gave him some light so he could look human again.Glorious CHAOS! 17:51, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

So Sora always had his heart, even though he was a Heartless? KyrianXVII 17:54, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

A heartless always have is original heart, but he don't have the original body and Soul--Xabryn 17:57, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Ohh...thanks, both of you. KyrianXVII 18:05, August 15, 2010 (UTC)

Wait a sec[edit]

--74.240.76.53 16:39, June 17, 2010 (UTC)hold up one minute,IF roxas had vens heart and sora had his own heart,what the FRIG was the point of them joining again?was it because of soras memories?this confuses me greatly.......I mean if roxas had a heart even though he was a nobody wouldnt he notice this?well maybe not since he really wouldnt know how to notice.....,but still this theory negates the need for them to be in one body..... --LostTranslations74.240.76.53 16:39, June 17, 2010 (UTC)

It was Ven's heart, but still Sora's body that made Roxas. It was because of that and the fact that Sora's memories were rebuilt in Roxas that Roxas needed to return to Sora. KyrianXVII 19:53, August 12, 2010 (UTC)

Jesse McCartney[edit]

Last time I checked, Ven's voice actor was going to be Jesse McCartney but now it is "to be announced?" What disproved Jesse McCartney to be Ven's voice actor? I thought he was confirmed. SeanWheeler 01:51, June 19, 2010 (UTC)

He never said who he was voicing, just that he'd finished the voicework. People just made an assumption and said it was so. - Challenge Sigil KHD.pngEternal Nothingness XIIIChallenge Sigil KHD.png 01:57, June 19, 2010 (UTC)
Sounds a lot like his voice in the recent Gameplay trailers. --Lordrogersmith6485 05:01, July 1, 2010 (UTC)
"He sounds like him" is in no way a valid source. We aren't putting McCartney as the VA until there's an explicit, written statement confirming him to be voicing Ventus. It's really just a formality, but it's one we're maintaining.LapisLazuliScarab05:51, July 1, 2010 (UTC)

I agree with LapisScarab. I did a voice test and Roxas and Ventus sound exactly alike, but it just wouldn't be right for us to put Jesse McCartney's name to it unless it's official. KyrianXVII 00:44, August 19, 2010 (UTC)

Still wondering[edit]

Didn't Nomura say in an interview that there was a reason behind Ventus' unique way of holding his Keyblade? And that the reason would be explained in BbS? Did that ever happen?--ΧƳƵach. 22:44, June 21, 2010 (UTC)

Fever pitch and the lock[edit]

Heartless Emblem.png
Erry - Let me think about it.
TALK - Scherzo Di Notte ~ {{{time}}}
So I was wondering, this page is locked because of the extreme editing of adding Jesse as voice actor?

Also, in the Ven Gameplay video on the SE E3 '10 website, it shows 'Fever Pitch' for Ven instead of Speed Rave, so if someone could add that in.

DaysXemnas.png
LapisScarab - Xemnas (card).png 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? Nobody.png
TALK - That may be... however, what other choice might we have had?
Interdiction KHD.png Yes, that's why it's locked. We know that it's basically confirmed, but as a formality we're keeping it as N/A until an official statement is released. Unfortunately, so many people decided not to respect that formality that we had to lock the page.

...Yes... there is a picture on the article showing exactly that...LapisLazuliScarab18:31, July 2, 2010 (UTC)

Just some small things of interest..[edit]

I noticed that Xion is called a Sora replica numerous times in this article and that's just kind of wrong. She is called a replica of the keyblade wielder's nobody by Axel and her page even calls her a Roxas replica. So I know it's not that important but I think it should be fixed.

Also nothing really big here but one of the Xehanort's Report from BBS tell us that Ventus was originally going to be the body Xehanort stole. For that to happen he had to weaken Ven's heart by making him use darkness. But once Ven opted to have the crap beat out of him by neoshadows instead of use his darkness he realised Ven was a lost caused and changed his plan to use him in the X-blade project.

I mean it's not important or anything but I think it make good triva.--24.7.239.218 04:31, July 8, 2010 (UTC)

Vsymbol.png Not sure were to bring this up.

We've been squabbling over the non-canon-ness of the secret videos, and whether characters appearing in them can get the game symbol at the top of the page. It's been established that secret videos in games do not count as canon, thus no game symbol.

Why not create a game icon for the secret videos as well? To put on the {{Game}} template? Just a thought.

TALK -
I don't remember the other opinions, but my own view on why they should not count is that it confuses canon - if we had a video symbol, it would still imply that Roxas's appearances included Deep Dive, which I'd personally want to corral in its own article (He wasn't even Roxas at that point).

I think KrytenKoro was saying that they hadn't named or clarified who he was when they did Deep Dive. Just like we didn't know who Terra, Ven and Aqua were until Birth By Sleep came out. He was Roxas, but nobody knew who he was or anything about him. KyrianXVII 13:09, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

No, I'm saying that Nomura has point-blank said "originally he was just a cool-looking blond kid, but we eventually decided to combine him with "Roxas" into KHII." When Deep Dive was made, Nomura wasn't even planning on making a sequel to KH.Glorious CHAOS! 15:18, August 13, 2010 (UTC)

What confuses me actually more about Ventus' fate is why he even fell comatose after losing his heart and that Aqua then could carry him around. When Ven defeated Vanitas for the final time his heart should be complete again (he gained back the 'dark parts' which were stolen to form Vanitas) so his heart shouldn't be pure light anymore. So why wasn't a heartless and Nobody created? Even if Ven has probably the smallest amount of darkness in his heart we have seen so far in any male in the series...after Vanitas destruction he should have his little darkness back and therefore don't go comatose like a princess of heart. 93.223.141.155 11:33, September 24, 2010 (UTC)

Vsymbol.pngven went in to a comatose-like state because his heart was destroyed when the X-blade was destroyed because his heart was part of the x-blade, and the reason a heartless and nobody weren't created is because ven's heart wasnt swallowed by darkness the darkness was removed so it wasnt the proper conditions to make one.

Thanks, but wait a moment, i know he 'lost' his heart because of the x-blade, but it can't be 'destroyed' since his heart later found refuge inside of Sora's heart, something that is destroyed can't roam through the universe and then contact another heart. Ventus should have his darkness back after the final defeat of Vanitas since he completed/repaired his own heart (signified by his awakening station changing form). His now again completed heart was however immediately lost after cuz Aqua smashed the x-blade. Well, that he didn't create a heartless and nobody cuz his heart wasn't overcome by darkness sounds quite reasonable. Does this mean that when an existence loses it's heart it doesn't necessarily mean always the creation of an heartless? Only if the lost heart is overcome by darkness it becomes a heartless and otherwise it goes directly back to Kingdom Hearts?

Sora got his own body back because of his rejoining Roxas. What is little known is that from when Sora lost his heart after fighting Riku-Ansem all the way until Sora's stasis and rejoining with Roxas is that he was a Heartless. He only gained his "original body" because of Kairi's light due to her being a Princess of the Light.

KyrianXVII - Riku? I defeated a Riku once...
TALK - {{{time}}}
I don't have a PSP so I can't actually play BBS, but I've been watching gameplay videos online and a question popped up in my head. Of all these characters who've seen Ven, do they not recognize Roxas in the same way? I mean, admittedly, some characters may not have seen either Ven or Roxas, and I can't comment on some of them (as I haven't played BBS either) but still I wonder. People like King Mickey and Donald and Goofy have seen both Ven and Roxas (or at least a picture of Roxas). I know it's been ten years, but if I see two people who look so much alike, I'd like to think I'd stop and say, "Hmmm...I've seen him before." Especially when the person was a good friend (i.e. Ven and King Mickey).
At the exact same time as Roxas was out there, Namine was diddling with Sora's memories, which means both Sora's head and every memory related to Sora got mixed up.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 18:51, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think Mickey ever saw Roxas. And when they're looking at that picture, Sora interrupts Goofy and says "this is Roxas", so who knows what they remember. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 18:58, October 13, 2010 (UTC)

I can understand why it seems odd Mickey doesn't even somewhat recognize Ven in Roxas. Mickey seemed to care a lot about Ven in BBS during the end of Aqua's scenario and with all of them suddenly disappearing, you'd think Mickey would remember them or at least their basic appearance, so it does seem a little far fetched the idea of Mickey just not recognizing him in all those years, considering he mentions in Re:Coded both Ven and Terra. Its similar with Xehanort, Mickey doesn't remember Xehanort despite being trained by Yen Sid, fighting his apprentice, talking to Yen Sid several times about them, and seeing his many incarnations at once. He didn't even remember Xehanort in the flashback with Ansem the Wise, you'd think Aqua or Yen Sid would've mentioned something, even off-screen or otherwise Mickey's left pretty much in the dark for most of the Kingdom Hearts universe.

Seriously, though, not everyone had been affected, right? The only people who met Ven who also actually met Roxas were Phil, Tinker Bell, Pete, and Organization members I-VIII. I can understand how Phil and Pete might be affected, and Tinker Bell has no attention span anyway, but why did, say, Axel not recognize him--especially before Namine did her business? --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 04:10, October 15, 2010 (UTC)

I thought that was the point of a talk page: to question and debate these things. And to correct you, everyone remembered Sora at the same time. So when Kairi remembered Sora in the game, at the exact same time Leon and the gang and everyone else remembered Sora too. And I hope I don't sound rude (and if I do I am extremely sorry) but what did that little tidbit of information have to do with the question at hand?

Whoever has seen him will probably notice. Xigbar remembers Ven AND Roxas, which is evident during his conversation with Sora in TWTNW. But yes, it is weird that NOBODY else remembers him. But in the Saix article (I'm not fucked to put those things above the "i" every time) it states that he thinks that friendship between nobodies is possible, as long as they have memories to fall back on. This may be why Axel became friends with Roxas so fast, it may be subconscious though, as he didn't really know Ven that well. Also, about the Phil and Pete are not very bright to begin with though. LiLLiPaDDy ~True tears are never seen, only hidden~ 13:02, October 17, 2010 (UTC)

I thought I might as well put in what I think: As far as I know Mickey only sees the Data Roxas in Coded and after that he rushes to Yen Sid saying that he's found out where Ven's heart is. Donald and Goofy only really met Ven in passing and have only seen a picture of Roxas so they might not have made a connection or forgot what Ven looks like or both, Axel befriends Roxas in the blink of an eye so even if he forgot about Ven, Ven might have had an influence over Axel's subconscience. Saix, well we never really know what goes through his mind other than wanting to have his heart back, so I really can't say as to him. Dilan, Aeleus, Even, and Ienzo only meet him for about a second so they most likely forgot about him. Finally Xemnas most likely remembers him because of his past with him and we know Xigbar remembers him which is why I made the assumption about Xemnas but then again with the exception of Xigbar.LightoftheDarkness 23:51, November 27, 2010 (UTC)

Arkward cutscene[edit]

In the cutscene in which Ven takes out the wooden Keyblade Terra gave him, where the hell was he keeping that thing?! This may sound immature, but it appears as if he pulls it out of his... yeah...

Exactly how deep do you think a pocket is? That would require the pocket to go down further than his knee, and past half of his shin. Honestly, I just think that it was an epic fail design choice that was overlooked. It's kinda like when the characters pull ice cream out of no where, it's not like they'd put THAT in their pocket.

What you may want to do is check out the manga comic if they make it. They might address that effect, since in there Sora doesn't summon the keyblade, he tucks it in his belt. In any other event, as an RPG, you can't really question that...if that was the case, Sora shouldn't be able to carry all of that stuff everywhere with him.

Problems with trivia[edit]

i dont see why and they don't even try to explain themselves, but i added a trivial fact. Ven is the only one in birth by sleep who met all 6 apprentices of ansem the wise. Aeleus, Dilan (gaurds) ienzo and Vexen (scientists) and Braig in the keyblade graveyard and of course xehanort, but before he became his apprentice.

If you disagree, please add your reasoning in your edits.Bijinder 00 01:07, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

The trivia you added stated "Ven is the only character that has met all 6 of Ansem the Wise's Apprentices", this is not true because a)while he has met MX and Terra seperately, he has never met Xehanort, who is considered to be a seperate character, and B) because of course Ansem the Wise has met all 6 of them--ShadowsTwilightΧ-blade (Incomplete) KHBBS.png 01:17, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

THey're the same person with different circumstances, so I'll change that. Despite that, it was clearly obvious the trivia was referring to gameplay-wise not circumstantial.Bijinder 00 01:23, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Which means it's pretty stupid to mention at all. If it's not true all the way, and it's not unique, then it's like saying "Water is the only thing that's blue, except really its mostly transparent and there are a lot of other things that are blue."(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 01:27, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

But it is true, but story and gameplay. only you guys tend to focus on the exceptions. Ventus out of the three protagonist, Aqua and Terra was the only one who met all of Ansem the wise's apprentices. And trivia even comes in when something is controversial, so something not true all the way can be entered in the trivia section.Bijinder 00 01:33, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

It's still not noteworthy. It's basically saying Ventus is the only protagonist who encounters Dilan, Aeleus, Even and Ienzo. That's great and all, but the encounters are already under "Story", and it's not really remarkable.

Not to mention he's the only protagonist to encounter Donald and Goofy. Not to mention Aqua's the only one to encounter Hades. Not to mention Ven's the only one not to meet the Fairy Godmother. Etc. They're just not significant enough, even for trivia.

Are you guys making this up? Donald and goofy encountered both aqua and ven. Hades encountered both terra and aqua. Plus fairy Godmother is a disney original, not a kh original, it's not the same. Disney is more circumstantial depending on how relevant the situation was. Ventus meeting the 5 apprentice was important, especially with braig and even.

20px-Pin_000.png Neumannz means that there are a million things that we could put under trivias that are like the ones that you put up. For example "Sora was the one who defeated all Org. 13 members, not counting Axel and Riku." It's the same idea.

Interdiction KHD.png Neumannz was just making a point. The information is already noted in the story section, just not in the way you wanted. Instead of one trivia point that says "Ven has met the original five apprentices" the Story section describes how he meets each one as it happens. There's no reason for the trivia to be there, it's redundant.

On a side note, the idea that the Fairy Godmother "doesn't count" because she's a Disney character is just stupid. Characters are characters. And where is there a trivia point saying that Ven is the only one to see Vanitas' face? Okay, I removed that, thanks for pointing it out.

Wikipedia is better, because they highly discourage, "pointy" remarks. I'm saying Disney is circumstantial. Depending on how relevant it was in the series. Fairy Godmother, barely plays a role in BBS, and considering each went there separate ways, i would say that there were plenty of characters to do such thing. Whats the difference between one disney character and a group of kh originals? that much is what i say.

You're all think shallowly, you're not looking at it deeper, you give examples that don't even fit to this exact circumstance. For example, Sora was the one and only protagonist in the series, anyone who was defeated in kh2 would have to be sora. And please dont make some smart-mouth remark such "what about riku and roxas". you get the idea i'm trying to tell you.

AS for this particular situation, Ventus met ALL 5. Aqua and Terra has met 1 in particular, Braig. In fact that could be a trivia fact on his page. "Braig is the only apprentice to meet all 3 protagonist in birth by sleep". But beside the point, Ventus met all of them, that's a worthy trivial fact, he didn't just meet one. Out of the 3, terra and aqua, ventus met them. Sure, a few disney characters were left out, but again, i say it depends on how relevant they were. the same applies to kh too, such as "Riku is the only one out of the trio to not meet hayner pence and ollette" now that's something that isn't note worthy, because those characters barely played any role, and only met sora and kairi for a brief moment. Unlike ventus, ventus left an impression on all 5. and their meeting was hinted in BBS, and days.Bijinder 00 02:13, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png You're only able to make what you're saying true by tacking on ludicrous technicalities like "except Ansem", "except Riku", etc. If you have to attach a conditional to make it true, it's not unique--ergo, not trivia worthy. That's how trivia works on this Wiki. By the by, Braig has met all six too if you tack on the conditional "if you count Braig as having met himself". See? We can play this game with anything. Lastly, as I said before, this information is all in the article already, it's just in the Story section instead of trivia. The only difference is that it's not highlighted for no reason like you're trying to make it.

EDIT: And why did you start talking about Wikipedia all of a sudden. This isn't Wikipedia, and we really don't care how they do things there.

Not exactly, the story doesn't state, ventus was the only one, and again, you're jumping the gun without properly thinking. Ont of the three protagonist, ventus was the only one, it was just a description problem, not a factual one. Clearly, it's true, and wont be highlighted anywhere else, and it is trivia. And you guys have added speculation on the trivia sections in the past, and are presently left untouched. You guys are doing "playing dirty" discussion. I mention one fact, when circumstances change, you still stick to the first one to prove your point, and when someone does make a point, yo water it down to something less worthy, and say it as such.Bijinder 00 02:27, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT CONFLICT: I have absolutely no idea what you mean by "circumstantial". If you mean "inconsequential in terms of the overall series", that's a subjective and rather silly criterion. Besides, the Fairy Godmother has about the same significance as Phil, if less screentime. (I also have no idea what you mean by "pointy", but that's irrelevent.)

I don't know what you;re trying to explain in your second paragraph.

It is not significant that Ven is the only one to meet all 5. It is significant that he met them, but that's in "Story". Besides, how much of an impression do you think Ven had on Dilan or Aeleus?

Basically, you don't get to decide who's more significant than whom.

Interdiction KHD.png Yes, it is true... once you add a conditional like "the only protagonist" (which is, again, not true; Ansem the Wise is a protagonist; you mean he was the only playable character, which is still just another conditional). We're not perfect. If there's speculation in trivia, let us know and we'll remove it. We've been sticking to the exact same points through this whole thing. 1) Your trivia piece is only technically correct. 1.5) The rule on this Wiki regarding Trivia is that if it's not unique, it's not worth mentioning as trivia. Addin technicalities prove it isn't unique. 2) This information is already in the article. Since you clearly don't want to read it, here:
  • "Shortly after, the Star Shard sends the two of them both to Radiant Garden, and Ven tries to follow Mickey, only to be intercepted by Aeleus and Dilan."
  • "His search is interrupted again, when he spots Ienzo being attacked by the Unversed. Without any hesitation, Ventus protects the boy and defeats his attackers. Even arrives shortly after and thanks Ventus for his help. Then, when asked about Terra's location, he tells Ven to look in the Outer Gardens."
  • "Braig quickly appears and fights Aqua. Stalling long enough, Braig withdraws from the battle."

The only difference is that it is not highlighted, i.e. not made a big deal of because it isn't a big deal. There' no reason to point out that he's the only one who meets them, largely because heisn't.

Also, you're adding "unnecessary" "air quotes" a lot.

Also some, unnecessary commas. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 02:41, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

see what did i say about playing dirty?

So if it's taken account, then i suppose every piece of trivia related to them should be added? Again, you guys say it's not noteworthy, because you can do that to any character, but each of them have different circumstances like I've said before. And again like I've said before, you guys have even less noteworthy trivia on other articles, this one seems legit, but you're downgrading it more than what it actually is, because you don't dare to look deeper into it.

Aqua's has almost the exact same situation, but mentioning different characters and more detail.Bijinder 00 02:42, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

If you mean that all the trivia shuld be integrated into the article, that's exactly what we do. Trivia here is something that simply cannot fit anywhere else in the article; we merge it wherever possible.
BUt then again, this one doesn't fit. and there is a big difference from mentioning it on trivia, and implying it on the story. But i personally, think you guys twisted trivia, like chitalian said, you guys, intentionally work differntly, i suggest you guys get closer to . But it does get irritating, when you see conflict of interest.
Scarab removed one obvious one, but didn't remove the one that is practically the same as this one. Aqua meeting Sora Riku and Kairi, due to terra only meeting riku and ventus vaguely meeting Sora a few times.Bijinder 00 02:54, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png How is there a big difference? The information is there either way. That trivia point is different in that it is true without the use of any nonsense technicalities. Aqua is the only one to meet all three. And what do you mean by "twisted trivia" and "conflict of interest"? You're the only (for lack of a better word) dissenter in this discussion.

EDIT: Actually, come to think of it, that trivia piece is unneeded because the information is also contained in the Story section. But do you see the difference? It didn't need to tack on "Except blah blah blah" or "along with so-and-so" to be true.

sigh.....i keep trying to post it, but too much edit conflicts, disrupt it. like I've said i changed it to make it have no technicalities, without the word "except" in it. Either way, you know theres a difference between implying it and directly saying it. for one, in order to actually imply that trivia, you would have to read all 3, not just one page. Aqua met sora, riku and kairi, does it say she was the only one to meet all3 from the 3 protagonist? no, you would have to read terra and ven's too. thats the difference, a big difference, and i'm pretty sure you saw this coming.Bijinder 00 03:07, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png Our readers are not idiots. These articles are meant to be read. Trivia is not just a cliff-notes version of the main article. Honestly, no, I did not see this coming. I didn't expect that anyone would so lazy to actually complain about having to read the articles on the Wiki.

Don't flatter yourself, not everyone reads every little detail in the wiki's. Readers aren't stupid, but they most certainly aren't always ready to read everything this wiki has to offer. And the trivial fact, will not be remembered so easily. the only ones who know are the ones who played it, but not everyone on the wiki has played the game. The implication is far more vague and much more difficult to detect.Bijinder 00 03:17, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png So they can read the sections of the article that the information would be in. This isn't complicated. If they wanted to know if Aqua met Sora, Riku, and Kairi, they'd look in the Story section, because it is unlikely to be in another section. I'm not suggesting that they read every little detail; they read the little details that they're interested in. If something is a "trivial fact" that will "not be remembered so easily", then it wasn't important to begin with. That's what "trivial" means. As I said before, Trivia on this Wiki is only meant for things that don't fit into other sections of the page.

And what on Earth do you mean by "the only ones who know are the ones who play the game"? They'll know and so will anyone who read the articles like they're flippng supposed to. Of course not everyone has played the game, that's why we wrtie these articles. Take me for example; Before I got KHII, the first game in the series I got, I read basically everything about it on this Wiki.

But thats not the point in trivia. we don't post things people are going to look for. we post what doesn't fit in exactly to the story , and technically it's not in the story. It's implying it by with 3 others.Bijinder 00 03:31, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

TALK -
How about this, Bijinder - trivia sections are terrible, awful things that are strong evidence that God likes pissing with us, and sees at least some humor in human suffering (as long as it's temporal). They train human minds to be lazy, and only swallow hollywood-insider class snippets of information about a topic, totally devoid of context or understanding, and their overall impact is to result in people putting less effort into actual learning because they think they know the "interesting tidbits".

...soooo, given that, why is this trivia point necessary? In what way does it improve human understanding of the universe well enough to overcome the damage it causes to the advancement of civilization?

i'm gonna ignorr, krytenkoro due to him being the real troll, @LapisScarab, it's obvious, don't make it seem like you can't understand it. What i'm saying is super simple, and if you don't understand, you would've asked something by now, which you haven't. lets say i want to learn something about ventus, not directly on storyline, not something properly explained. i got to trivia section, and there it is. I dont know "ventus met all 5 apprentices" and not everyone (certainly not most) will be reading all 3 stories to find something they didn't know. thats the difference, story implies and a vague implication. And not everyone will be looking for it because they won't know what they're looking for exactly. thats the difference between the story section and the trivia section. big difference. don't understand? ask questions.

@Neumannz, the last significant part in the story section. not in the trivia section, anything can go n there as long as it's trivia relating to the character. but then again, you guys change opinion. first you say not relevant, but then switch to already explained in the story which both controversial.Bijinder 00 03:58, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

...Can you rewrite that? --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 04:01, December 7, 2010 (UTC)
Hahaha...no, I was being deadly serious. Anyone who wants to take things from the existing sections and splooge them over a "trivia" section is essentially a vandal. A truly perfect wiki, or tome of any kind, has no trivia sections. To be in the trivia section, something must be truly important and notable, but totally incompatible with the other sections. That's our policy, and always has been - no amount of calling the editors names is going to change that.
Seriously though, you're saying you "want to know what Ventus did", but it's too hard to browse the section that is literally "things Ventus did"? That pretty well explains how you got to the end of the article without finding this thing out.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 04:05, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

no, that's not what i'm trying to say krytenkoro. looking for things that are implied, but too difficult, because they're not exactly implied, just something people can know about if you really looked for it.


trivia section can have anything as long as it's trivia and doesn't fit in directly into other sections, you guys are indecisive with your reasoning against it, first it's wasn't true, now it has exceptions in it, then you guys say it's not important enough while the other says it's mentioned in the plot (not really).Bijinder 00 04:10, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT CONFLICT:Sorry to jump in, but you're the one that's troll here, Bijinder. Most of the people WILL read all the three stories since they wanna know what's going on, that's their reason to come to this wiki in the first place: To get infos'. And besides that 3 story thing is ridiculous, why would you find that out about Ven by visiting the other article? the article itself explained that Ventus had met the apprentices, that's why the trivia is said to be redundant. And the policies for the trivia here is different than the other wiki, it's that simple: follow the rules. And from my point of view, you should be the one asking questions by now, Bijinder.
"Ventus is the only character whose name starts with "Ven"".
That is a true thing that has no qualifiers, and is completely unique. In every way, it is superior to what you are trying to add. It is, however, absolutely redundant to the article, and truly worthless and mind-numbing. Your argument, however, says that it should be in the trivia section.
Ventus meeting five of the six apprentices is not implied, it is outright stated. It's also reiterated on the story sections in each apprentice's article.
Our reasoning has been completely consistent - we don't allow qualifiers, we don't allow non-unique trivia, and we don't allow meaningless trivia. These are all policy on this wiki, and are followed as best as we can without outright banning new editors.
"First it wasn't true" - because it wasn't. You said Ventus met Apprentice Xehanort, which is a patent lie.
"Now it has exceptions in it" - because it always has - Ansem, Xehanort, Braig, Dilan, Even, Aeleus, and Ienzo, at the least, met all of these same people, and since you are relying on cutscenes for Ventus meeting them, any other cutscene or story-bit is fair game as well.
"It's not important enough" - it really isn't. Trivia notes should be truly exceptional, like the Roxas mural which showed him as a 20-year old, and was used as prominent advertising for Days.
"It's mentioned in the plot" - It is. It's just mentioned in a way that assumes that the reader can, well, read. I'm not making fun of small children or foreign readers here, but if you can't read more than a paragraph of English, this wiki isn't the place for you.
Again, I bring back my water example: "Water is the only thing that's blue, except it's mostly transparent and tons of other things are blue." This analogy fits exactly to the trivia note you are trying to add.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 04:21, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png Okay, see the first half of that statement is what I'm talking about. I have no clue what you're trying to get across with that. I'm not feigning ignorance; I'm seriously having a hard time comprehendin what you're trying to say half the time.

For the umpteenth time, that is not how Trivia sections work on this Wiki. Trivia on this Wiki is something that cannot fit into any other section on the article. We weren't being indecisive, there were just a crapton of reasons not to have that trivia point; One was that it wasn't true (it wasn't and still is't true that Ven is the only character to meet all five), adding conditionals and technicalities means it isn't unique and, by this Wiki's definition of Trivia, not Trivia-worthy, it really isn't all that important, and (most importantly, in my opinion) it is already mentioned in the article. Yes really. Read the damn article. I'm not saying this for my own benefit, the information you are trying to add is literally in the Story section.


Like i've said before, theres a difference, a clear as day, right in your face difference. the story will not tell you ventus was the only one out of the 3 to meet ansem the wises's apprentice. you can't tell the difference between "ventus met all 5 of ansem the wises's apprentices" from "ventus was the only one out of the 3 protagonist to meet all 5 protagonist"?

you guys state policy, but no link? i don't think you have a written policy. And, although it fits, this isn't a wiki about water, so the circumstances change, plus this is more story-driven, than factual. who represents water and who is blue? if it fits, then please elaborate a little better.

And yes, you were indecisive because your reasoning contradict another. and there is no technicality, it's just that it was vague, and i didn't explain it right. when i did, that's when you started to mention all this other stuffBijinder 00 04:34, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

It's not relevant to Ventus, honestly. He doesn't care that he's the only one who met five out of the six of them. On their pages, it mentions the one's they met, so there's that. It's also a textbook example of negative information - instead of presenting pure facts, it interpolates from "what wasn't", introducing tidbits that, in the end, are not important.
We have Template:Trivia. We have this, this, and the Manual of Style
It is a wiki about Water, actually.
"Water" is Ventus, "Blue" is "met the five protagonists", "is actually transparent" is the fact that Master Xehanort is a totally different, though to be fair spiritually related character.
I think you're confusing "you are so wrong that there are a multitude of blatant faults with your claim" for "we keep changing our mind when you prove our criticisms wrong, oh sublime master."(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 04:43, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Talk_Bubble_Legend_zpsa9c4698c.png This really has gone too far. Bijinder, you seem like a reasonable guy. You seem like you're legitimately trying to improve this wiki and it's content with your contributions. But right now you're trying to add an incorrect piece of information to the article. Others have stated it before, but I'll state it again: Ventus did not meet all six apprentices. Considering none of the three protagonists in BBS met Xehanort you could say that Ventus was the only one to meet the other five apprentices, but this is already written down in the story section for all the characters. You're saying: "What if someone came to the wiki just to find out if any of them met all the apprentices? Well then sure, they'd have to do a little bit of something called research. Reading honestly isn't that hard, it's quite easy actually. If you don't enjoy reading then that's too bad, you may want to get your facts somewhere else. If it really came down to it they could ask on Yahoo or Wikianswers. But we don't actually want trivia sections in our articles. We place them there because there are some pieces of information that wouldn't fit into other sections of the article that we feel need to be said. And this fact is stated. It's just not put in bright, bold, flashing text. Your contributions are appreciated, but this argument really needs to come to a close.

reading isn't hard in general, but reading everything an article has to offer is different. again, although people can and some people will, not everyone and certainly not most non-wikia users read everything. Again, i changed it so there weren't technicalities like Xehanort, and Xehanort (Ansem the wise's apprentice) isn't someone different from Master Xehanort and/or Terra. And no, the idea isn't to go and read something you already know or took account of. Though, i can see why trivia isn't acceptable, in wikipedia, you guys will have to come to terms with it.Like i said, give link to your policy (if you really have one).

ANd what do you mean "If I remove the technicalities, then it's not good" that was the point of one your arguments. that was one oyur main points. NOw you're saying if i made it so there weren't technicalities, then that's also a reason why it's no good? And, I never said this was wikipedia. Are you even reading everything right? You guys have been inconsistent, from the beginning. why don't you make a real policy section. a guideline isn't a policy, and neither are those other sectionsBijinder 00 16:58, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

EDIT CONFLICT: True, if you had, unecessary comma, written it better, it would have had a better chance of going unnoticed (though not by much).
But by having to add limitations and exceptions, you make the item contrived and forced. Let's say it would have been significant if Ven had been the only one to meet all of Ansem's apprentices. The fact that he didn't meet Xehanort and the fact that Terra and Aqua also met Braig make it untrue. Making it instead that Ven was the only one to meet Dilan, Aeleus, Even and Ienzo makes it far less significant, notable, and interesting.
But, you say, he was the only one to meet all five. That's as if you said, "Aqua is the only protagonist to meet both Jaq and the Fairy Godmother." It's true, and it's even well written, but it's contrived, silly, and purile. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 17:39, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

I don't think you even understood the trivia. How does that disprove it? That's like saying "I met all 5 characters, but it's not true because one or two other people met only one of them". Again, it would depend on the relevance in plot. there's a big difference between 5 ansem the wise apprentices (characters prominent in kh timeline that were relevant during BBS time) then Jaq and Fairy Godmother (characters, not needed to know about during the events of BBS). But then again, you guys don't want trivia, although this is a legit one, you guys wont have it for your preference in relevance.Bijinder 00 17:59, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Bijinder - if you try to remove the technicalities from your bit, it becomes false. If you add the technicalities, it becomes non-unique. Either of these mean that the trivia is not acceptable.
Also, the Manual of Style is official, written policy, and it states everything we've been saying here.
Community consensus arrived at through forums, or even talk pages, is official policy. We don't have to draft a constitution to create rules. This is a wiki - so long as the community at large agrees on a policy, it is official.
No, you lost in reasoning. We have provided multiple reasons why the trivia bit is moronic, contradictory, and useless, and have even provided links to written policy and community consensus. Your refusal to accept the face that you are blatantly wrong is on no-one's hands but your own.
Let me just state this here, since apparently authority is needed here - the trivia will not be placed. No change that you make to it will make it acceptable. Nothing you say or do will change this decision. End of story.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 17:42, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

When you rewrite it you're not removing technicalities you're hiding them. They're still there. And if you make it a separate fact on it's own that separate fact isn't remarkable enough to be in the Trivia section. --JFH_Sig_zpsfaa1e7d5.jpg 20:14, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Repetition for emphasis.

that's not true, you probably didn't even read it yourself. Out of the three protagonist, (terra, ven, aqua) Ventus was the only one who met all 5 apprentices. no technicality, no nothing. and trivia doesn't need to be remarkable.Bijinder 00 20:24, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Of course it has to be remarkable, otherwise it could be anything, like "Terra is the tallest protagonist in the series." Your trivia is straight out unremarkable. Which is to say, there's no point in making a remark about it. There is nothing remarkable in Ventus being the only one to meet all five of those people. You can say any character was the only one to meet a specific set of people (e.g., Aqua was the only one who encountered both Prince Philip and Maleficent), but if that set is arbitrary--as it is here, since you are discounting Xehanort, who Ven didn't meet, and including Braig, who everyone met--then it has no meaning. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 21:19, December 7, 2010 (UTC)


if one character met a complete set, while the other two didn't, then that would be worthy. But the examples you are giving are incomplete sets.Bijinder 00 23:42, December 7, 2010 (UTC)

Don't see why. "People who have spent lots of time in Maleficent's Castle" is as significant as "five out of the seven people who spend lots of time within Hollow Bastion, but only during KH BbS because after that Maleficent moves in", if not more so.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 23:51, December 7, 2010 (UTC)


Wait, why? i didn't quite understood that. a castle, is a place, a world, and all of them were in that world. sure not all of them were in the same place and some places were locked. But i think cutscene-wise, it was relevant. that and what i really wanted to put was "Out of three protagonist, Ventus was the one who met most of the organization 13's somebodies. Xehanort (yeah, same person, different memories, no memories, hinted in re:coded secret ending), Aeleus, Dilan, Even, Ienzo, Braig, Lea, and Isa. Quite a large number, and i would say it's more significant, then three or two people that was a constant pattern in the scenarios. ansem the wise apprentice was a large group, from one world.Bijinder 00 01:11, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Then why didn't you put that before? It makes more sense, but you still have to use "most of," which still counts as a technicality. Virtually any way you put this still will have too many flaws to put on the page. RoxasNobody

He knows 1-8, and vaguely 13 somebody. It was easier to use ansem apprentices, because it was more implied, but it seemed no one wanted to think it through. but they still probably think it's not necessary.Bijinder 00 05:40, December 8, 2010 (UTC)

Facepalm, causes dumbness. Think about it, he was. Except some are using the xehanort excuse, but in terms of who's who with kh, it's pretty easy to distinguish that Xehanort and Xehanort the apprentice are pretty much the same person, despite terra and eraqus inside him, he still has control over it. same person, different appearance.Bijinder 00 02:06, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png If you're going, to be a smart ass, use commas, correctly. And did you read what you typed? The forbidden word, "except". That's a conditional. And it doesn't matter if you think They're the same person; neither the games nor this wiki do. Apprentice Xehanort, Terra-Xehanort, and Master Xehanort are all different characters. They all have seperate Journal entries and similar, but still different roles in the story.
That's like saying Mysterious Tower and Yen Sid's Tower are different worlds. Did Xehanort the Apprentice get his own journal entry in BBS? If he didn't then it's flawed. They are the same person and re:coded condones to it. the only difference is that he has no memories of his past. Though i will admit, Terra-Xehanort and Master Xehanort are different because Terra was still fighting within, so both people controlling the same body would cause him to be called Terra-Xehanort, same with Ventus-Vanitas. But as for Xehanort the Apprentice, i'm pretty positive he didn't get a journal entry in BBS considering he only appeared in the secret ending as an apprentice. despite that, Ventus was the only one to meet all 6.Bijinder 00 02:17, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png It was was quite impossible for him to have a Journal entry, for the exact reason you stated (thank's for answering your own question). Apprentice Xehanort came about after BBS ended, i.e. there was no Jounral for him to have an entry in. Where does Re:coded "condone" that (I'm not entirely sure you know what "condone" means). "Mysterious Tower" is the name of the World, by the way. Yen Sid's Tower is the actual tower (the name of the room).

Then if it was impossible to mention, then i think it wasn't worth mentioning. (that and i lend my game out, i already beat aqua and ven's story, but i don't like terra's so I'm letting my friend play it). Condone = excuses it right? Mysterious Tower, and Yen Sid's tower, what are they both referring to specifically? the same tower....same thing, different circumstances. similar to Xehanort. But at the moment, I'm trying to figure out how to add it in (including Lea and Isa) considering ven has a strong connection to org.13 and Roxas was a big link to them.Bijinder 00 02:45, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Interdiction KHD.png That first sentence baffles me. I don't know what you're trying to say, but it was impossible for the Apprentice Xehanort to have a Journal entry in BBS. He has one in KHII. Okay, so you know what it means, good, but you're not using it correctly and haven't answered my question. What does Re:coded "excuse" about MX and AX being the same person?

The Mysterious Tower is the actual name of the World. "Yen Sid's Tower" isn't even an official name. The rooms of the worldin BBS are "Mysterious Tower" (the outside grounds), "Tower Entrance" (the entrance), and "Sorcerer's Chamber" (the top floor).

Lastly, are you kidding me? This really is just going in one ear and out the other. You're just tacking on more and more conditionals to a Trivia piece that is already invalid for half a dozen reasons.

Look, as a rule of thumb, if you really have to work so hard to make a piece trivia be correct, significant, and policy-compliant, than it's probably not a good piece of trivia to begin with.

And I still don't think you get what Trivia is. It's someting that is worth not but not already noted elsewhere and cannot be fit elsewhere. Ven's relation to Org XIII is very complex and not practically contained in a single trivia point, first of all. Second, because of that, it is described throughout other pages. He is the reason Roxas looks as he does, Xigbar remembers him, Xemnas is looking for him, etc. All that is noted on other pages.

Do you want a POLICY? Go here for one, and in that page it explicitly says:

Do not insert redundant information into the trivia section, particularly when the information is already contained within the main article body.

But it's not exactly in there. you ,e, and everyone here knows there's a difference between the trivia i mention and the plot in there. Both state different things, but that's not the point. Manual of Style, is more like a format on how things should be placed, but you don't have a general rule for forums and, what your standards are. These guys keep saying, they gave me the link, but i know they didn't even look at the title themselves. They linked me to forums, and a usage section that doesn't even cover it. The idea is to have one official page, so that it's clean enough to look at, easy to look up without some user pointing it out when you make a mistake.

Okay.
  1. We do not allow rules-lawyering here. We have policy on the manual of style, and we have general formatting that we, as a community, agree on. We all know that you want some "Constitution of the Wiki" so that you can try and find some snippet that you can twist to try and force the trivia, and it's not going to work.
  2. The consensus is overwhelmingly in favor of "the trivia's not fucking being put there", and multiple reasons, many of which stem from policy, have been given as to why the trivia point should not be there.
  3. You are spamming this page. If you continue to post on this topic (or the Keyblade Armor discussion), you will receive an official warning, which can lead to a block or ban.
  4. You have personally driven away one of our best editors with your belligerent attitude, and you have pretty much lost all good faith on this wiki. I think it's fair to say that no one is willing to oblige you on anything.
  5. If you desire to contribute to this wiki at all, I personally suggest you choose one of the simple cleanup projects (like filling in the Card: articles), and wait until the community isn't out for your blood to even attempt a discussion on any other topic.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 04:40, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

I noticed repeated edits to the header-paragraph despite it being all right before it. I appreciate Kryten's approach to merge both versions as to avoid another edit war, but as I see it it makes the article unnecessary long, as all this added information is redundant. Most of it is already covered by the story section and does not need to be mentioned in the first paragraph again.
The Lead is meant to summarize the topic, so some redundancy is to be expected. If you want to post a draft on the talk page for discussion, then by all means do so.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 04:40, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

I've actually set this back to the way it was last done by Soxra because this version is grammatically and story-wise the most correct one. I actually dissected the supposed better version and found some glaring errors or respectively sentences explaining facts already covered there in a more complicated language. The most obvious being this: alternate persona of Vanitas., there's no discussing it that this is plainly and utterly wrong. Vanitas originated from Ventus and was created from his darkness, but nevertheless they're both distinct persons. Then granting the boy the ability to use the Keyblade. is also wrong, as Ventus's heart within Sora only allows him to dual wield, the ability to wield a keyblade is Sora's own.

As for comparing both versions of the paragraph [here], I personally found the one on the left is way more understandable written and was fine as it was. The only two things not covered in that old version were that Ven was Master Xehanort's apprentice four years before BBS, which is said in the very first sentence of the story-section and that Vanitas got Sora's face because of the deep heart-connection between Sora/Ven, which for my comprehension belongs on Vanitas's article. But if it is wanted to really re-write that section despite it's good shape I'll give it a shot...;)

Nomura did say that Sora became a Keyblade wielder due to touching Ventus's heart; however, the Kingdom Key he later gains is his own, while his second Keyblade is Ventus's. Basically, joining with Ventus did two things.
There's no such thing as an "awakening station". There are Stations of the "Dive to the Heart", but "awakening" is just a name for the "Station of Awakening", one of the pillars in Roxas's Dive to the Heart.
"is a Y before X becomes one" is very awkward wording.
The coverage of his connection to Sora does best as one paragraph.
Your version of the Sora coverage has a run-on sentence punctuated with improper commas.
Ventus's heart, appearance, and Keyblade specifically went to Roxas while he was in existence.
The name meaning thing has really nothing to do with his connection to Sora, plot-wise, so putting it there doesn't make much sense.
"even though they only ever meet through their hearts" doesn't seem necessary here, especially since that kind of thing is rife throughout the series anyway.

If there are specific factual or grammatical errors you'd like to bring up, please do, but because there are a multitude of factual and grammatical errors in the current version (and I can't find any in mine), I'm reverting it again.(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 16:34, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

TALK - I see, so that's a keyblade... - 16:57, December 9, 2010 (UTC)
Ok, this version really covers it better. I rephrased it a bit to bring out some factual nuances better, as Sora didn't really absorb Ven's heart, he just allowed it to find refuge inside his own were it went to sleep.

In what interview or Ultimania did Nomura say that? Because I remember another Nomura interview where he said Sora didn't got/inherited anything from Ven beside his dual-wielding. But maybe this version is acceptable now... Ooops, just noted one spelling error at the word similar...;)

"sustains an even severer injury due to the destruction of the χ-blade, it establishes contact to Sora again and is granted shelter and protection inside Sora's own heart. " - this is just not English, I'm sorry.
"As Sora filled in Ventus’ fractured heart, the fractured part (Vanitas) was effected by Sora and ended up with Sora’s face"
"Yes he does have connections with Ventus’ heart, among others, but he hasn’t inherited anything from them." - While Nomura says this, it is poppycock. Nomura flat-out says otherwhere that Sora's second Keyblade, Roxas's second Keyblade, is due to Ventus's heart. (Though, it's possible that "them" refers only to the other hearts).
"A: Because he can use both Sora’s and Ventus’ keyblades. Sora can wield two keyblades at once because he has Ventus’ as well as his own. As Roxas is a part of Sora, he also can use two. In Days Roxas awakened his ability to dual wield after fighting Xion. In KHII once Sora absorbs him, he can also dual-wield." - Here, specifically.
"When he was born into the world, he linked with Ventus filling his fractured heart. Many years later, when Ventus was on the verge of disappearing after his fight with Vanitas, Sora took him into his own heart."
"To use a keyblade you must have been chosen to inherit as well as been chosen by the keyblade itself. In BbS you could see that Terra performed the ceremony with Riku, and that is why Riku was able to take the keyblade that Sora used." - I can't find an exact quote supporting Sora inheriting wielder status from Ventus, but this basically says that some form of the ceremony must go through. Sora only ever touched Ventus's heart (and thus his Keyblade); before the final episode, when Aqua arrived at Destiny Islands, she does not sense that Sora is a Keyblade wielder. However, as soon as Sora takes in Ventus's heart at the end, he goes so far as to have a Dive to the Heart. Although Nomura doesn't specifically say that the final absorption is what made him a Keyblade wielder, the game does (by having a Dive to the Heart), so that's supported.

EDIT:

Here is my final revision of the section, which I believe addresses your complaints; however, looking at it, I realize that it has become more about Sora, rather than an overview of Ventus. It should be recycled for use within the article itself; I'm going to try a new version of the lead.

When Ventus's heart was disappearing due to Vanitas's creation, Sora's heart reached out and lent part of his own heart to Ventus, mending Ventus's heart and bringing him back to life. Ever since, Sora has shared a strong bond with Ventus, and when Ventus's heart is once again damaged, this time due to Vanitas's destruction, he takes it in completely. This act turns Sora into a Keyblade wielder, and eventually allows him to wield Ventus's Keyblade alongside his own. Ventus's appearance and Keyblade are even passed on to Sora's Nobody, Roxas, while he exists.

Does the new lead look okay to you?(ಠ_ೃ) Bully!

About it not being proper english...well, since I'm native german I can't really argue with you on that...but this particular one was also modified by Soxra I think. Although I don't know what severer means, if at all it should be more severe, should it not?

Yeah Nomura rescinded this to didn't inherit anything from Ven except the second keyblade, however this one I never challenged. "When he was born into the world, he linked with Ventus filling his fractured heart. Many years later, when Ventus was on the verge of disappearing after his fight with Vanitas, Sora took him into his own heart." This one is however somewhat tricky, it is true that Ventus's heart sustained a second, grave injury after his last fight with Vanitas, but the reason for this was not Vanitas's destruction, but the destruction of the x-blade. Both hearts (Ven's and Vanitas's) were tightly connected to the x-blade and therefore its destruction backlashed on both of their hearts. Vanitas himself even says so, if the blade would be destroyed so would be the hearts which were used to forge it. The only reason it was an grave injury instead of full destruction of their hearts was because the x-blade was incomplete. So this new version looks fine except for the reason for Ven's second injury...;)

I think the new version goes into too much detail; also, as I understood it, Ventus could only live so long as Vanitas lived, even though they were separate. I may be wrong, but if Ventus's heart was being actively destroyed, I don't see how Sora could fix it by letting the heart hide within him. Plus, Vanitas's heart and body were totally destroyed, unlike Ventus who simply went comatose.
The x-blade was definitely the cause of it (pretty sure that's what killed Vanitas), so how is the new version?
There's also a few bits of too awkward wording.
forcing it at the end to go to sleep inside Sora's heart until it can be healed and safely rejoin his body, which lies comatose but safe within the Chamber of Waking.
  • Ventus's heart wasn't forced, the two of them agreed to it.
  • "recover" is better indicative of the long, passive process; "be healed" suggests that it is waiting for someone to cast Cure.
I changed that a bit to take both wordings into account; how is it now?(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 18:25, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Ventus could live without Vanitas, because of his connection with Sora. His newborn heart clearly said in the prologue it would support Ven's heart until he can fully heal it by himself. If Ven would have destroyed Vanitas without the x-blade in the mix he would be perfectly fine because of that connection. No, no, Ven's heart was not actively destroyed, just the injury was several magnitudes stronger so that the connection with Sora wasn't enough to sustain it anymore, it was fading. If the x-blade would have been complete then Ven's heart would have been destroyed without even having a chance to contact Sora. That's why also Vanitas's heart wasn't fully destroyed, yet the body and soul of Vanitas were.

About this forcing, yeah, both agreed to it since Ven politely requested Sora's help, yet Ventus's heart was indeed forced to leave its body because it was so heavily injured...if Sora had denied Ven's request, his heart would have been doomed to fade into the darkness. As for recover, do we really know that a heart can heal by itself? The trinity archives only say Ven's heart went to rest within Sora. It's actually implied that the secret how to heal a heart lies within the data Ansem the wise hid inside Sora among some other things. However, I don't want to be nitpicky...if it comes to actual fine-tuning of word meanings my english is probably not yet good enough...

I'm still not sure that the injury wasn't due to part of Ventus's heart (Vanitas) being obliterated, but your claim seems reasonable enough, so let's go with that for now.
"Forcing" implies that it was shoved into Sora's heart against one or both of their wills. While the circumstances were that Ventus's heart needed it, both of them agreed to it.
"be healed" implies something much more active and immediate (like being at the hospital and being treated), while "recover" implies a long, passive process, something your body does through natural healing over time. "Rest and recover" are sometimes used, while "rest and be healed" are not, basically.
I corrected the lead to just say "due to the x-blade's destruction". Does it look OK?(ಠ_ೃ) Bully! 19:15, December 9, 2010 (UTC)

Ok, then let's go with this. Yeah, now it looks really OK that way. Overlooking it all and your last explanations I noticed I tend to use sometimes too strong wordings...have to look out for this for sure. Thanks for your patience, Kryten. Now it's fine. And as the move is not commencing yet I probably shall go and work on the abilities-section of Aqua and Terra now, to adjust them to Ven's according to the format you suggested. ^_^

Did anyone else notice...?[edit]

If Ventus's heart is in Sora, then shouldn't it have been forced out in Kingdom Hearts I when Sora used the Keyblade of the People's Hearts like Kairi's and his own were? Following that, shouldn't that have created a Nobody as well? ~AKAAkira

Ventus's heart is made entirely of light, because of Master Xehanort stripping it of Darkness. Just like with the Princesses, he simply lays dormant inside Sora instead of creating a Nobody and Heartless.


"Ventus's heart is made entirely of light." ~ I don't quite think that argument works, because if that was true, Naminé wouldn't have been created either, seeing as Kairi's heart is also made entirely of light. "Ven's heart went to Sora's Nobody Roxas." ~ That would make sense, I guess, but wouldn't Ven's heart leaving Sora's body also create a Nobody just like Sora's own heart leaving and Kairi's heart leaving? ~AKAAkira

Because Kairi's heart is entirely light, Namine has no real body, and ends up being just the memory of a Nobody.
The long and short of it is that because everything was mixed up in that scene, Nomura can saw whatever he wants about the mechanics of it."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 17:26, December 22, 2010 (UTC)

TALK - I see, so that's a keyblade... - 20:37, December 22, 2010 (UTC)
Actually there's another little twist which makes the difference between Kairi's and Ven's heart: Kairi's heart was fully awake and unharmed, therefore it could "create" Naminé. However, Ven's heart is badly injured and asleep/inactive => ergo no nobody was formed. Ventus's heart actually rested within Sora's but was expelled when Sora's heart was overtaken by its darkness. Therefore Ven's heart remained inside Sora's body, which became Roxas and this explains why Roxas looks the way he does.

Ventus's Body[edit]

what ever happened to his body? it's not in the chamber anymore...is it? someone please tell me cause last i checked only Aqua's armor and keyblade was in there, and im confused.

OathOblivTalkPic_zps6eebf78e.png His body is in the Chamber of Waking while Aqua's Armor is in the Chamber of Repose. They're two different chambers. The Chamber of Waking was created by Aqua to house Ven's sleeping body while the Chamber of Repose was built by Xehanort and the other 5 apprentices to house the armor and her keyblade.

I'm pretty sure that it isn't, seeing as how Master Xehanort took him there o Eraquas.

It almost certainly isn't where he was born, but it's the only home of his we know of."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 00:31, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Okay, a "homeworld" designates that that is where the character lives and calls home. So, Land of Departure is definitely Ventus' homeworld. Where he was born, and where he was living before the creation of Vanitas is yet to be determined, and I doubt Nomura will ever tell us either answer. --Jacobmirror 16:39, February 3, 2011 (UTC)

Story Section[edit]

Is it really necessary for every single world to be detailed in the story section? Because other character articles (i.e. Sora) don't do that.
The Story sections should include all plot that a character has. Sora's article is pretty heavily summarized, to its detriment."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 00:01, 16 October 2011 (UTC)

Yep, probably so. I don't own BbS, so I don't actually know which styles he has, so you or someone else will have to do it. LightSymbol Character - Roxas.pngRoxas 02:34, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
I decided to do it myself. Blackchaos27 (talk) 04:07, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
Actually, the reverse is true. Terra, Aqua, and Ventus's abilities and weapons sections should all be completely overhauled per the notes in this article.
I've copied your draft to this section. However, it's really important that these parts of the article be in a cohesive prose that covers how the various abilities define Ventus's style, rather than a lot of sentence fragments that end up redundant to our many Ability articles."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 06:38, 19 July 2012 (UTC)
[[File:Fever Pitch KHBBS.png|thumb|200px|right|Ventus utilizing his exclusive Command Style, Fever Pitch]]

Out of the main protagonists of ''Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep'', Ventus is the fastest and most agile, which reflects in his primary fighting style of dodging, quick movements and swift combo attacks. Ventus has an affinity for the wind and [[Light]] elements and mixes both into several of his techniques and magic attacks. Ven's primary battle style consists of very fast, wide backhanded strikes with his Keyblade in quick succession to deal damage. His single strikes aren't as powerful as Sora's two-handed strikes or Terra's powerful blows, but his ability to attack quickly makes up for his lower attack power. Small and spry, Ventus has access to the already well-known [[Dodge Roll]] technique, as well as an offensive variant named [[Thunder Roll]]. Furthermore he can use the [[Glide]] and [[Superglide]] abilities as well as another offensive version called [[Fire Glide]]. The [[Reversal]] command allows Ventus to quickly dodge an enemies attack and rush behind it, similar to the [[Reaction Command]] in ''Kingdom Hearts II'' used against the [[Dusk]] Nobodies. His known [[Command Style]]s are:
*[[File:CS FeverPitch.png|link=Fever Pitch]]: Ven's personal Command Style that puts a large emphasis on overwhelming enemies with wide-ranged, speed-based combos. Activated by filling the Command Gauge with physical-based commands. The finisher of this Command Style consists of a long combo ending with five beams of light. This was named '''"Speed Rave"''' in the Japanese release.
*[[File:CS Cyclone.png|link=Cyclone]]: A powerful Command Style that attacks surrounding enemies with spin attacks. Activated by filling the Style Gauge with Raid, or Aero-based commands. The finisher consists of Ventus spinning around and hitting enemies, like a cyclone.
*[[File:CS WingBlade.png|link=Wingblade]]: A Command Style designed to combat multiple enemies from all directions with a wingspan of phantom swords. The finisher consists of Ventus jumping in the air with his blades pointed downward; Ventus lands and causes a flash of light that damages nearby enemies. Bears a resemblance to Riku and Sora's "Session" limit. Activated by filling the Style Gauge with Edge-type commands, Reprisal commands, or Magnet-based commands.
*[[File:CS SkyClimber.png|link=Sky Climber]]: A Command Style that gives Aqua and Ven a great midair advantage, it allows them to ride their Keyblade around to attack foes from above at high speed. Activated by filling the Command Gauge with Dash commands (ie.Sliding Dash, Sonic Blade) or Zero Gravity-based commands. The finisher consists of Aqua or Ven mounting their Keyblades and hitting multiple enemies before heading skyward then crashing back down and finally, spinning on themselves, causing a small tornado. This was named '''"Air Rider"''' in the Japanese release.

===D-Link===
{{main|Game:Ventus (D-Link)}}
[[File:DL Ventus.png|right|150px]]
Ventus becomes a D-Link for Terra and Aqua, after they receive the Wayfinders Aqua made for the three of them. While in link with Ventus, they can use swift and quick commands, reflecting Ventus's swift fighting style.

===Shotlock===
**'''[[Pulse Bomb]]''': Launch energy blasts from the tip of your Keyblade and bombard targets with a series of small explosions. Has a high lock-on count. Perform a well-timed button press to cause additional explosions (based on your timing rating).
**'''[[Multivortex]]''': Ventus's ultimate Shotlock. Rapidly swing the Keyblade and harness the wind to launch shockwaves at targets with every stroke. Rotate the analog pad to elongate the whirlwind.
**'''[[Dark Link]]''': Final Vanitas fight only. Through the [[Game:Vanitas (D-Link)|D-Link with Vanitas]], Ventus gains Light version of Vanitas' personal Shotlock, [[Dark Cannon]]. Generates three yellow crystals in a trigram formation which project rays that fuse and become a beam of light energy. Named '''"Dark of Link"''' in the Japanese release.

Novel Fact[edit]

You think we should add the info from the novels about Ven being an "orphan who had never seen his parents"?

If we can get a source to the exact passage, the specific novel, and can get the original Japanese text to check it for accuracy, yes."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 14:18, 30 July 2012 (UTC)

"That's right! He used to give me the exact same look!"[edit]

This quote really refers to Ventus? Xigbar used to compare Sora to Roxas, so, doesn't "He" in this quote refers to Roxas? Is there an Ultimania or Interview that confirms this refering to Ventus? In fact, the only cutscene related to Birth by Sleep in KH2, before the additional cutscenes of the Final Mix version, was The Gathering secret ending. So, if there aren't any confirmation in any games, interviews or Ultimanias, I think this quote refers to Roxas, doesn't it? I'm kinda confused. - MateusinhoEX - 17:23, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Ultimania. "At the end of Ventus and Aqua’s scenarios, they went against him in the Keyblade Graveyard, and Ventus glared at him while frozen. This is Xigbar remembering that scene." maggosh 19:17, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Thanks, Maggosh. No more doubts :) - MateusinhoEX - 19:38, 24 May 2013 (UTC)

Sora's Keyblade[edit]

Yes, he can dual wield because he has Ventus's heart within him. However, don't we have an Ultimania quote somewhere about this also being why he can wield in the first place?"We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 17:09, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

So I was right? KH3D seems to imply that Sora was never meant to be a Keyblade wielder. Riku was chosen by Terra, and Kairi received it accidentally through Aqua. Ventus entered Sora's heart, thus the Keyblade was able to "move down the list" when its chosen wielder chose to use the power of darkness instead of the light. - Challenge Sigil KHD.pngEternal Nothingness XIIIChallenge Sigil KHD.png 17:11, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
Didn't he promise to Aqua to protect Riku if he ever fell to the darkness in BBS? I thought that's why he got the Keyblade, which was meant for Riku. TheSilentHero 17:46, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

He wasn't supposed to be a wielder, since he didn't get a bequeathing ceremony, but he was capable of wielding. I'm not sure if there was a quote saying Ventus is the reason Sora can wield at all, rather than just the reason he can dual wield. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 17:51, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

My understanding is that Sora can wield the Keyblade because of his strong heart, and being right there when Riku was taken by the darkness during the destruction of Destiny Islands. As I recall, that was in an interview, though I cannot remember when or where it is. I will see if I can find it. However, the quote I did put in the article (hidden because I am still not sure if it's from an Ultimania, though it's widely accepted as a page from the Birth by Sleep Ultimania) seems to imply that no, Ventus has nothing to do with Sora's ability to wield the Keyblade at all. In fact, I recall a separate interview in which Nomura specifically said that (I remember because after reading the interview, I was even more lost about how the Keyblade chooses its wielders). I will look for both these interviews, see if they exist and such. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 18:19, 12 January 2015 (UTC)
We already had a discussion about this here. The conclusion was that we know how Sora got the Keyblade but not why he was able too wield it, it may have something to do with Ventus' heart or it may not. The concept of the Keyblade works has changed greatly in KHII and also in BBS, so it's probably all speculation at this point. --ShardofTruth18:31, 12 January 2015 (UTC)

Variations[edit]

Should Roxas and his offshoots be added?"We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 15:13, 15 June 2016 (UTC)

Roxas, yes. Offshoots? I'd say no, personally. Rex Ronald Rilander (talk) 02:22, 16 June 2016 (UTC)

Order of Events[edit]

Wasn't Vanitas simutaneously fighting Aqua in the real world and Ventus at his Dive and the X-blade reverting to its incomplete form a result of Ventus destroying it and Vanitas in his Dive?Cloudtheavenger (talk) 04:58, 12 August 2016 (UTC)

I am unsure what you are even asking. What do you want the page to say?"We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 15:09, 15 August 2016 (UTC)

Actually, should we say Ventus's metaphysical battle happened when the X-Blade was damaged by Aqua? That would make more sense because if the X-Blade was damaged in the real world, it should appear as damaged during the metaphysical battle as well and that battle happened as Vanitas's attempt to repair it. I want to put that information on Vanitas's page but want to wait for input first.Cloudtheavenger (talk) 18:03, 24 August 2016 (UTC)

That's an assumption. We have no reason to believe that it would appear the same in both instances, and the reports themselves imply that it would always appear damaged until Ventus accepted the fusion."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 19:13, 24 August 2016 (UTC)
The χ-blade was complete in the real world because the fusion was complete on the outside, meaning their bodies had fused properly, whereas the χ-blade was incomplete in the Dive to the Heart because the fusion was incomplete on the inside, meaning either their hearts, minds, or souls hadn't fused properly.

Daybreak Town[edit]

Is it safe to add a link to Daybreak Town in Ventus' infobox or should we wait on that? --Doggieboy9 (talk) 19:11, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

It may be best to hold off on it. There's something definitely off about the whole game's timeline, so we should probably wait until that's a little more sorted out. 'Tis my opinion. Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.pngKeybladeSpyMaster Diamond Dust Keychain KHFM.png 20:15, 29 August 2017 (UTC)

Original world[edit]

"As a boy, I dreamed of seeing the farthest reaches of the World. If I only went far enough, there had to be a world out there in which no one had ever before set foot. And now I know of just such a world. If I become the first to open Kingdom Hearts' door, I can create a Next World in which light and darkness exist in perfect equilibrium. So there I stood, with vast knowledge in one gnarled, dying hand, and newfound purpose in the other. The next step was clear: I needed a new vessel. And that was when I met Ventus and made him my pupil."

It's indicated that Xehanort found Ventus on some world where no one had ever before set foot."We're werewolves, not swearwolves." (KrytenKoro) 14:39, 20 May 2019 (UTC)

It sounds to me like the Next World is the world no one had ever set foot before, and he needed Ventus to get there. TheSilentHero 14:42, 20 May 2019 (UTC)
