14 FACTS ABOUT THE ‘KINGDOM HEARTS’ ORGANISATION XIII MEMBERS

That scene in Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days where Xaldin tells Roxas that love never lasts and is practically useless is still one of my favourite scenes… I don’t know why but I find that scene hilarious…

  1. Xenmas

    Xemnas was actually the last member of Organisation XIII to receive an English translation of his title

  2. Xigbar

    In the Japanese version of Kingdom Hearts II, his arrow guns can be combined together to form a sniper with perfect accuracy. However, in the English version Xigbar can’t combine the guns (but he can use one gun to balance the other which pretty much has the same effect as the sniper). The rifle ‘’sight’ is also different in each version of the game

  3. Xaldin

    Xaldin writes in the Secret Reports that he wants a heart so that he can do what only people with hearts can do – not because he wants to be able to feel emotion

  4. Vexen

    Vexen’s cloak is the longest out of all the Organisation XIII members, reaching down to cover his boots

  5. Lexaeus

    Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 11.22.22 pm.png
    Lexaeus only trusts Zexion. Everyone else he doesn’t trust – saying that they are all hiding secrets from each other. He is patricianly suspicious of Axel because he believes that no-one can ever tell what Axel is really thinking

  6. Zexion

    Zexion was never going to be seen in combat, which meant that we also didn’t know what his weapon was. In order to keep Zexion’s weapon unknown in The World That Never Was where all the Organisation XIII members had their weapons shown, the creators decided to have Zexion’s gravestone destroyed. However, it was in Kingdom Hearts Re: Chain of Memories and Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix that we ended up getting to find out that Zexion’s weapon is a the Lexicon

  7. Saix

    3.jpg
    Saix’s berserk ability could be a reference to quite a few things… It could refer to the belief that the moon causes madness, the belief that the moon can affect someone’s mood, refer to the legend of werewolves or it could even refer to the tales of the berserker warriors of the Norse…

  8. Axel

    Axel is actually the first character to technically curse. He says “hell” in Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories (from when he says, “It’s about time you give me one hell of a show!”) But then in  Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, this line was changed to, “Try and make it enjoyable, Sora. It’s the least you can do for me, you know”

  9. Demyx

    When viewing Demyx’s character model in Jiminy’s Journal, Demyx does not blink. In fact, he is the only member of Organisation XIII to not blink in the journal

  10. Luxord

    Most of Luxord’s decks are named after the Major Arcana of tarot cards. However, Luxord doesn’t use “Wheel of Fortune” or “Judgment” in his deck. In their place are the cards “The Joker” and “Fair Game” (which are cards from normal playing cards)

  11. Marluxia

    Marluxia was originally planned to be female. But the creators ultimately decided to make Marluxia male in order to prevent having both traitors be female

  12. Larxene

    Larxene’s knives are often thought to be Kunai by fans, but… her knives are actually called Foudre (which apparently means “lightning” in French!)

  13. Roxas

    Screen Shot 2018-02-08 at 11.27.17 pm.png
    Roxas has shoes named after him. Airwalk has designed a shoe called the Roxas Dot after him. (There is also a model named after Demyx.)

  14. Xion

    Xion’s hair colour is black because Tomoco Kanemaki (the writer of the Kingdom Hearts novels and one of the scenario writers for the series) wanted a girl character with black hair – and his request ended up being fulfilled. Kanemaki also helped come up with Xion’s name! Her name was well-liked by the creators because it has many meanings such as ‘tide’ (which relates to the Kairi and Namine’s name meanings) or can also refer to the flower known as the ‘aster tataricus’ (and when a person presents this flower to another, the meaning behind the act is to tell the receiver of the gift that “I won’t forget you”)

I love anything to do with Kingdom Hearts I’ve even made my own sea salt ice cream I can’t wait until the third kingdom hearts comes out it looks bad ass.
