    Officially away from KH III spoilers

    Default Re: Why Didn't Kairi take the Exam?

    For all her flaws and misfortunes, Kairi's a character that struck people in many different ways, going from hatred to love/wanting better for her.
    It's a different kind of ambivalency than the "I love Xion/I hate Xion": probably because Xion, for better or worse, got her own story while Kairi's always been kind of a sidekick to what happened.

    Same way Riku got his Road to Dawn and Mickey's pursuit of Xemnas ended up.

    Lea and Kairi are also training with Merlin, who canonically has power over time-travel. They're training in the "temporally flexible" most likely.

    Yeah, it's pretty uncalled for; the series has definitely been neglectful and inconsistent with her characterization but that's par for the course with KH, so it's not as though there's nothing of substance (or of any less substance than usual) to convene around when the topic presents itself. If we were to adopt a glass half-full perspective, the case could be made that she still has a lot of...unused potential.

    I'm of the mind that KH3 ought to use it and do so unapologetically. She's still more of a character than most of the anime rainbow villains making up the Organization so if we can spend time with her over them I'll take it.

    Default Re: Why Didn't Kairi take the Exam?

    Lol I only made that bad joke because I find Kairi the most stereotypical/borderline sexist female character in series, especially compared to the other female characters (Aqua, Xion, Namine, or hell even Olette) who are more their own persons with their own drives that exist outside of filling in the role as the male hero's object of saving and default love interest. The writers themselves couldn't think of an actual purpose for her past KH1/CoM because her archetype purpose was already fulfilled in the first game, which they didn't have or plan a solid sequel for. As Sephiroth pointed out:

    This. The fandom's characterization of her is 100% superior and more creative than anything the KH writing team has ever come up with.

    I mean I get that people want Kairi to do more cuz she's the only one in her trio who hasn't "put in work." I'm pretty sure her body count is 1. But in all seriousness, taking her character seriously and writing a compelling enough character arc of her own not revolving around Sora or Riku is would only help her as a character in the long run

    I do want to note that in the novel and the manga, Kairi actually kills a substantial amount of Heartless in rather flashy manners so at least she is a badass in some other versions of this series.

    So this probably isn't the case but maybe instead of going on some grand adventure to become a keyblade master she wanted to finish her semester of classes when Axel tried to abduct her (and instead she ran off with Riku). She even shows selphine the letter bottle with the letter in it while coming home from school one day. Now classes are done she can go train with everyone else.
    I mean in anime kids are always saving the world while in school. How is this any different?

    The only person who cares about school in this series is Olette xD

    Kairi, as far as we’ve seen, is much like Sora and Riku in that she is 100% okay leaving her life behind to go find her friends or go on an adventure. If it keeps them together, she’d always chase after them. Way back when, BBS’s ending with Kairi staying on the island absolutely astounded people because she was so adamant in chasing after Sora and Riku before. It was completely out of character for her to just send them off when she swore she’d always go after them or stay with them so they would never be split apart again.

    But thats just my point, Thats the only time she's actually just sent them off. Even in KH1 She asks Sora if she can go with him and he shuts her down fast. Can we honestly say that she left the island of her own accord (kh1- fused with sora, kh2- running from Axel) other than to show up at the end of DDD. Again, we don't even know the exact circumstances of how she got to Yen Sids other than Donald and Goofy probably suck at explaining things. She really exists to drive the plot forward like, Pluto... poor lost Pluto.
    I mean she constantly says she wants to be with the boys, but her actions never really prove otherwise. I have a sub theory (not that this joke I made is even a theory) that Namine actually has more control inside kairi than we were led to believe initally. We see that Roxas can conversate and influence Sora. Why can't Namine do the same? I mean post Kh2 anything Kairi does is questionable... not that we've seen much of her lol

    Also super side not I want Hayden back :'(

    Hayden isnt up to anything as of now to my knowledge... even if she doesn't voice Kairi I hope she voices some character. Like Alyson was fine for Xion. I just don't think she has the proper voice for Kairi...and her kwirks.

    I sort of headcanon'd this situation as Sora and Riku maybe having had a conversation with her, convincing her to stay, and that they'll be back soon. It doesn't excuse the scene from being bad, but I think that is a trait of Kairi's-- she has determination when she needs to but isn't impossible to be convinced to stay back. She's the only kiddo from the island you can't fight.
