Alight let me give you the low-down. I would describe EACH game but that would take too long so let’s just describe KH1 and KH2.
KINGDOM HEARTS 1: So Sora (the protagonist of the series) is spending a lot of time with this girl, Kairi, and his BFF, Riku, is getting jealous. So Riku puts up this front like he likes Kairi but that’s disproved later when Riku is holding out his hand for Sora to grab and Sora is failing at grabbing it so they get separated and blasted to these other worlds. Sora makes new friends and eventually finds Riku, who doesn’t want to go with Sora because he feels Sora replaced him. So then Riku gets manipulated by all these adult assholes (AKA the Disney villains) and captures Kairi (who apparently is a princess or some shit. Whatever) and Sora is like “Dude no!” So he goes to save Kairi, and also Riku who is now possessed by Billy Zane. And so he saves Kairi (and she gets to go back home) and he continues forward to save the world and Riku. So he saves Riku and Riku, realizing he was being a dick, sacrifices himself to help save the world and Sora’s all like “NO” but then he understands so he let’s Riku go. And thus their romance starts. Game summed up: Riku became dark but was saved by Sora’s light.
GAY LOVE PIERCED THROUGH THE DARKNESS AND SAVED THE DAY
KINGDOM HEARTS 2: So apparently, ever since the end of game 1, Sora has been searching for Riku. BECAUSE APPARENTLY HE COULDN’T SAVE THE WORLD AND GO HOME WITHOUT RIKU. YUP. HE NEEDS RIKU. So he spends literally the ENTIRE second game searching for Riku while taking down Organization XIII. Like he’s Riku-focused. Then at one point Kairi shows up and Sora’s like “Kairi what are you doing here?” and Kairi is hanging with the baddie from the first game and Sora’s sort of like “WTF BILLY ZANE.” and so Billy Zane (but it’s not Billy Zane anymore) is leaving to let Kairi and Sora have alone time or whatever and Sora tells him to wait. And then Kairi’s all like “HOLD HANDS SO GAY LOVE CAN PIERCE THE DARKNESS AGAIN” and Sora goes with it and when they touch he realizes it’s Riku and that Riku is using these powers he’s acquired to take the form of Billy Zane. And literally Sora breaks down. I mean he sees Kairi and he does this: He sees that Billy Zane is Riku and he does this: YUP. So then later on Riku’s disguise disappears and literally Sora is like “WHOA” and you cant blame him cause damn Riku got hella fine. I mean look at this boy*Fans self* OH RIKU~~~~ SO YEAH. Then they fight a Billy Zane wannabe together (just the two of them) and then they get stranded on this beach together (and Sora grabbed Riku’s ass. Not joking. It happened. It’s canon). And they laid together on the sand. And then they have a chance to go home and Sora doesn’t go without Riku so they leave together and it’s beautiful. And Sora asks Riku what he thinks the door to light is and he points to Sora’s heart because it was Sora’s light that kept saving Riku from the darkness. It’s canon. Shh.
DREAM DROP DISTANCE AKA THE GAYEST GAME I HAVE EVER PLAYED CAUSE THE WHOLE GAME THEY ARE TRYING TO GET BACK TO ONE ANOTHER AND THEY KEEP SEEING ONE ANOTHER AND TRY TO TOUCH ONE ANOTHER BUT THEY CANT BECAUSE THEY ARE IN DIFFERENT DIMENSIONS AND IT SUCKS BECAUSE THEY ARE SO CLOSE YET SO FAR AND UGH IT’S LIKE JUST LET THEM BE TOGETHER BECAUSE I CANT EVEN FUCKING HANDLE THIS SHIT ANYMORE. GOD.
