The Story So Far… Part Three
DiZ and Namine pull a Matrix on Roxas, plugging him into a fake version of Twilight Town and giving him fake friends and a fake summer vacation from fake school. Eventually, Roxas gets wise and confronts Naminé, who tells them that they’re actually both Nobodies so they should totally hang out. DiZ disappears with Namine and Riku (who still calls himself Ansem), and Roxas goes to wake up Sora, causing himself to disappear as all of his memories and personality revert to Sora.
Sora, Donald and Goofy then resume their search for King Mickey and Riku. Organization XIII shows up and eventually – gasp! – it’s revealed that 1) Ansem from the first game wasn’t really Ansem, he’s some dude named Xehanort; 2) Xehanort stole the real Ansem’s identity and became both a Heartless (who’s now part of Riku) and a Nobody (Xemnas); and 3) DiZ was the real Ansem, but now he’s just Christopher Lee most of the time.
More Heartless show up and swarm all over the fake Final Fantasy origin planet, Radiant Garden/Hollow Bastion. Then for whatever reason, Organization XIII kidnaps Kairi just to piss Sora off. Mickey shows up again, this time dressed like an Organization XIII member for no other reason than that it looks bad ass. He helps Sora find his way to Organization XIII’s headquarters to rescue Kairi and get rid of Xemnas. Christopher Lee shows up too, with some sort of machine to encode Kingdom Hearts as data, which he thinks will somehow fix everything.
Instead, the machine makes Kingdom Hearts explode and Sora and Riku are left to deal with Xemnas inside of a monochromatic painting. Then Sora and Riku go to the beach, share a hallucination of Kairi and somehow wind up back on the island they first tried to run away from along with Goofy, Donald, Mickey Mouse and Kairi.
The end. For now.
