The realm of darkness sure does wonders for the skin (major spoiler)

7 replies 9 views Edited Oct 2, 2010

anybody find it weird in the blank points video that even though 12 years had past, and Aqua is probably about 30 she looks like she is still in her teens, and juding from the rest of the regulear ending that is not an easy realm to survive in, i figured she should look at least a little haggard.

Well, we know aging exists especially for those who are in their early teens (Sora, Kairi, Riku). DIsney crew have their own jurisdiction obviously. FF characters are up to Square.

 

Concept of death seems pretty non-existant. We see this with Ansem the Wise who ended up in the Dark Realm (apparantly, for the second time). Still, Aqua seems the same. 

 

It could be intended in terms of the story, or perhaps they did not want to make a new texture/model for Aqua. Aging seems a bit confusing in the KH universe. We know it happens except to Nobodies, Disney, and any other character Square chooses (mainly FF characters, but that's up to them).

 

One thing that baffles me is the comparison of Riku. His hair is quite long within a year. 10 years have passed for Aqua and its the same. Then again, who knows if Riku's hair had anything to with Xehanort's Heartless being inside him. Perhaps, I'm just going off on tangents...

Gotta look good to be a hero And who said Riku can't grow 2 feet in a year or less? He's been eatin his veggies. And in KH2 we see Sora's grown as his clothes are insanely small at the beginning.

Come on guys, it's a game.

 

Did Yuna look 16 years old in FFX? I don't think so.

 

Look at Sora. He was asleep for a year. His hair didn't grow one bit (in fact, it hasn't changed at all).

Yes it did. o_o

It changed color, and the spikes were a bit different, and I think it was a bit longer too.

I read a long time ago that time flows differently in the realm of darkness according to Nomura. Sorry, don't remember where I read it.

 

Just sounds like another excuse for all the plot holes in the series...

I don't think anyone would want to play as a much older Aqua anyways. Unless she knew insane spells and stuff.
