    MX being such a Creator's Pet villain.

    I'm tired of everything being convoluted and retconned just for him, the good guys repeatedly holding the Idiot Ball just so his "master manipulations" can work (largely regarded as the worst method of attempting to show-don't-tell), and the other villains being devalued just by his very existence.

    The only reason to like him was the late Leonard Nimoy (who made him sound epic, at least).

    Weird editing issues, like how when Ansem's on Destiny Islands, he's standing right in front of Sora...yet Sora's sounding as though he just now appeared.

    And the bit where Donald refuses to allow Riku to join them. I think it should've been made a little clearer why Donald reacted like that. I mean, I grasp why (Riku indeed seemed a little shady in that scene, and Donald was picking up on that before Sora could), but I used to be rather confused by that for awhile.

    I obviously have other qualms with KH beyond that, it's just what's presently on the mind since I'm currently playing KHFM.

    Lexaeus struck me as an idiot in Chain of Memories. He didn't even attempt to manipulate Riku before attacking him. All he had to do was tell Riku Sora is in trouble and Marluxia is the cause of it or even mislead him a bit to get him on his side.

    I remember that, it's one of the first things that struck me as odd.

    I'm guessing his first response was just hearing Ansem, and the second was actually seeing him.

    I guess the main nitpick about that Ansem moment should be that KH1 didn't show very well the difference between when a character appears/disappears and when they were never there to begin with (e.g. Sora's visions of Kairi).

    Yeah, can I just say I was never that fond of Lexaeus in the first place? I totally understand what type of character he was intended to be, but I feel the fans are more in love with the idea of said character that its actual execution.

    Oh, yes, THAT scene. I never really got why Donald didn't want him to tag along since Sora declared his goal of "find Riku and Kairi" every so often, so it was quite clear Sora would want them on the team when they found them. Yes, he was kinda shady back then, but this is even more the reason to take him along, to be able to watch him. Sora's reaction after that is also kinda heartless - when a friend of mine is that mean to another friend of mine which makes the latter disappear, I don't just stand there saying "oh, he's fine, that does it" but I try to find that friend, otherwise it HAS to give the impression that I don't really care. I really hated Donald and Sora in that scene.

    Donald's character was never completely open to other people if not near the end. For the most of KH1 Donald just wants to find the King, and even recruits Sora because he was ordered to (and even then, he states that Sora is needed to find Mickey) and not out of goodwill.
    Makes sense to me that Riku, a non King-related person, was out of the question in his mind: his mission was never to find Riku and Kairi in the first place. Heck, he ABANDONS Sora after he loses the Keyblade, and that happens near the final stretch.
    The entire first meeting with Riku also happens not too long after his whole Deep Jungle argument with Sora as well, where he wanted to leave the World without even searching for Riku and Kairi and even talked about leaving Sora there.
    Donald was just not a welcoming fellow.

    Sora's forgetting Riku is less justified, but at the very least we know that Sora believed Riku was perfect and superior to him in everything. Sora probably thought that if he managed so far, Riku was a-okay.

    Which was then completely blown up in KH2 where Sora, even though he is assured that Riku is mostly fine on multiple occasions, hunts him down like no tomorrow. Enemies? What enemies? I'm trying to make up for not looking for my bae in the first game by doing nothing else now!!

    My current nitpick: The fact that Oogie dabs.
    It bothers me ok

    So that's where Sora got it from.

    It would've still been a bit salvageable if such maddening research actually bare fruit. But Sora stumbles onto Riku only when the latter wants to, and finds him as soon as he stops actively searching.

    Y'all thought the 3D in the title stood for the console or whatever Nomura claimed? Fools.
