At the end of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, for those who beat it on Critical Mode (a great critical mode that game had), or collected everything on the other modes (who did that?) you would be granted the bonus ending. SPOILER*** The ending was brief, but impactful; with Mickey and Master Yen Sid discussing Xehanort's plan about the x-Blade, what they should do to counter Master Xehanhort's plan, and of course the biggest part is the end where Riku brings Kairi to the Mysterious Tower in order to be trained as a Keyblade Wielder ***END OF SPOILER.

Before I continue on, and this may count as somewhat of a spoiler for those who did not play Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep or Kingdom Hearts 2, Kairi has had the power of the keyblade, bestowed from (ugh) Aqua and the power was first revealed in Kingdom Hearts 2 at/by the end. Although, it was rarely used and has been pretty low-key (pun), it has shaped somewhat of the question impending this blog.



Now, throughout the entire plot of Kingdom Hearts Dream Drop Distance, which chronologically is the most recent, you hear about the Seven Lights v. The Thirteen Darknesses. All in all, a short-version point of the game is actually figuring out Master Xehanort's (if you didn't play or don't know that's the bold old-one) plan, where he tries to make Sora the 13th vessel, rather than Riku and how he plans to create the true X-blade rather than the psuedo-version he made with his experiment. This experiment for those that do not know was where Xehanort used Vanitas and Ventus aka pure light and pure darkness (Birth By Sleep) to forge his own blade. In order for Master Xehanort to do this he will need to capture the Seven Princesses of Light (Kingdom Hearts 1 people, stay with me), so in turn he can gain access to Kingdom Hearts and start another Keyblade War (BBS).

[if you need a refreshing or don't believe me here is the secret ending]

As mentioned in the previous paragraph, the Seven Lights v. Thirteen Darknesses is the central figure of the upcoming Kingdom Hearts 3. However, this is not clearly answered or defined which is pretty much why I made this blog. Here's some direct information  "The resurrected Master Xehanort reforms Organization XIII, only consisting of several incarnations of himself from many alternate timelines. So far only known members are Master Xehanort himself, Xemnas, Ansem, Seeker of Darkness, Young Xehanort, Braig, and Isa. There are also six others whose identities are not yet revealed. Sora was supposed to be a member, but Lea (Axel for people who don't know anything) saved him from being possessed by Xehanort. Master Xehanort says that someday a new Organization, which he calls 13 Seekers of Darkness, is supposed to battle against the 7 lights. The Organization soon vanished into darkness after Sora was saved."



During Riku's story in KH3D, Young Xehanort explains to Riku that they originally wanted him to be their 13th Vessel but because he has built an immunity against the darkness, like the Keyblade, they chose Sora instead, henceforth Lea and Riku saving Sora etc.

Now this is the most IMPORTANT PART AND THE REASON BEHIND MY QUESTIONING, "Master Xehanort mentioned that 1 of the 7 lights was in his possession - this, given that he merged with Terra, is presumably his heart, as Ventus's remains in Sora and Aqua is trapped in the Realm of Darkness."

With Terra under his control, that brings up the question is Terra on what side of this impending war? Even Master Xehanort mentions that he (Terra) is 1 of the 7 lights, so in order to figure the team out we must include him, as the all-knowing Xehanort knows this to be true. Including Terra, if we list the Seven Keys of Light we get:

1-Sora
2-Riku
3-King Mickey
4-Terra
5-Ventus
6-Aqua
7-Lea
8-Kairi

Clearly, there is a contradiction here as I listed 8 including Terra. However, we all know the Birth By Sleep trio is out of commission and maybe Kingdom Hearts 3 will focus on their rescue. The real concerning problem is Lea or Kairi not a true Keyblade Warrior of Light? There is a better argument in the case of Kairi because she was bestowed the power in her heart by Aqua in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep by Aqua in Radiant Garden. However, you can also mention that Kairi is one of the Princesses of Heart/Light and those seven must be protected (because they are needed to make the true X-Blade).

But, there's another twist, what if it is actually Sora who is not a Key of Light? He was never truly blessed with the power like Riku (through Terra) and Kairi, and he was only given the Keyblade due to Riku's descent into darkness in Kingdom Hearts. Though the Kingdom Hearts 3 trailer when Sora picks up Master Eraqus' keyblade (THE HYPE ON THAT PART) could be a sign he is destined to be the best of them all. A counter/the same could be said for Lea/Axel in a way that he even surprised Master Yen Sid when he summoned a keyblade himself.



That curious look cause he doesn't know gjlgjdflikg

We won't know until we get Kingdom Hearts 3, or whenever the issue will be truly addressed. However, this is food for thought and I would love to hear fellow Kingdom Hearts fans (not those who only "play the main games" because EVERY DAMN GAME IS IMPORTANT) on what they think of the situation of the 7 vs 13. In addition, who do you the remaining six darknesses will be? Will they be old Organization XIII members? All new faces? Let me know down below!
