One Thing I Don't Get About Xemnas....

23 replies 144 views Edited Oct 7, 2013

How is it that his coat changes during the final fight? Is it due to The World That Never Was collapsing on itself? Or because he is at his last ounce of strength and this is just a sign?

This is me pretending I know what game you're talking about.

It's Kingdom Hearts by the way, also I don't know the answer to this question, it's been awhile since I played KH 2.

Oh! It's from Kingdom Hearts 2! It's not like there are others that use the name Xemnas! Smiley Very Happy

He's a Nobody.

 

He's a supernatural being.

 

I'm pretty sure the fact that his coat changes, is less impressive than producing laser swords, or being able to fly, or teleport.

 

His coat changing is just something he decided to do......

It's not really being impressive it's just....Why? If he decided to do that then wouldn't he just stay with the black coat? That's why I think it must be more to it...

Because wearing a black coat in the World of Light would look weird.

I think you're just looking too far into things, honestly.

 

A bunch of bosses in various games change their appearance, whether it be subtle (like the changing of coat colors) or a full blown transformation.

 

Why?

Just to.

 

Almost 99% of the time, the "subtle" changes, are simply there, just to be there. To make it differentiate between being normal, and being like "this is definitely the end boss".

 

Or to make the boss look cooler.

 

 

And considering the area that you fight Xemnas in is a mix of white and black, having him wear black/white as well gives a nice look.

 

 

I honestly doubt it has anything to do with his fading existence.

I agree with you on the white and black part. Most likely that's what it was. But I don't feel I was looking way deep into it. This boss just looked different from others. And yes, most final bosses change their appearance by the final fight, but most have a reason why. This just may be one that may not. I still think it slightly is about his fading existence because he revealed more attacks that he could do than when he faced Sora the first time. I do agree with you on everything else though...

It's a styleized symbolism of his last-bossed-ness
