The Story So Far: DARKNESS
0:05
Who are we fighting?
How did this all begin?
0:08
The Thirteen Seekers of Darkness
And the Great Battle to Come
0:09
And why did it take us so long to notice?
0:14
Master Xehanort has returned.
All that has transpired was exactly as he planned it.
0:17
As a Keyblade Master,
Xehanort had a gift like few others.
0:24
Ansem. Or...Xehanort.
0:32
You used to be a Keyblade wielder.
0:35
But darkness stole your heart,
and the Keyblade with it.
0:41
Twice now, Master Xehanort has sought to drag
the World into a great Keyblade War
0:47
between the forces of light and darkness.
0:51
They say ruin brings about creation.
So what, then, would another Keyblade War bring?
0:58
I must have these answers.
1:02
The χ-blade needs to be forged, and with it,
the door to the Keyblade War unlocked!
1:10
But both times his ambitions have been thwarted.
1:15
In his first attempt,
he divided a boy's heart into two beings—
1:19
a pure light named Ventus
and a pure darkness named Vanitas.
1:24
The two were to clash and forge
a relic known as the χ-blade.
1:29
Empty creature from Ventus riven...
1:33
to you, the name Vanitas shall be given.
1:40
So what are you waiting for?
Join with me right here and now.
1:45
Become the χ-blade.
1:47
He told me, the only way the χ-blade
can be forged is if you and me fight.
1:52
Well guess what? I'm not fighting.
1:55
Three students of Master Eraqus,
Xehanort's former brother-in-training,
2:00
rose up in order to stop
the χ-blade from being forged.
2:06
I may have to fight Vanitas after all.
2:10
If I do, guys...
2:13
I want you to—
2:14
The three of us can never be
torn apart, all right?
2:19
I'll always find a way.
2:23
They fought bravely.
2:25
And their strong bond allowed
them to triumph over Xehanort.
2:32
I've got a better idea.
How 'bout I destroy you both?
2:40
The χ-blade is made of your heart, too, idiot.
2:43
If you destroy it, your heart
will vanish forever.
2:48
Whatever it takes.
2:50
Anything to save Terra and Aqua.
2:55
But, all three paid a terrible price,
and their destinies were sealed.
3:01
The destruction of the χ-blade
plunged Ventus into a deep sleep.
3:08
Aqua sacrificed herself to the
realm of darkness to save Terra.
3:13
And, by the time he was found,
Terra was going by a different name.
3:21
Xeha...nort.
3:25
Master Xehanort's second attempt
to start the Keyblade War
3:29
involved pitting seven pure lights
against thirteen darknesses.
3:34
His heart and body acted separately.
3:37
His heart, Ansem, manipulated Riku and Maleficent
into capturing the seven pure lights he needed,
3:44
the princesses of heart.
3:47
His body, Xemnas, founded Organization XIII,
who would serve as the thirteen darknesses.
3:54
But his plans were dashed by Sora and his friends,
who defeated Ansem and Xemnas.
4:02
Light... But why...?
4:14
Organization XIII's true goal is to divide
Xehanort's heart among thirteen vessels.
4:22
Thirteen...Xehanorts?
4:29
What is...
4:31
The real Organization XIII.
4:34
Now, Master Xehanort has warned
of a third attempt to start his war.
4:42
Master Xehanort!
4:44
We were right about you!
4:50
All of this was decided.
4:53
My twelve selves would welcome me here on this day,
when I would return a complete person.
5:00
It is the future which lies beyond my sight.
5:04
Let us finish this at the fated place, once your
lights and my darknesses have joined together!
5:13
Not even time itself can contain Xehanort's ambitions,
but the End is near.
5:18
Thirteen darknesses. Seven lights.
The End is coming...
