The heart may be weak. And sometimes it may even give in. But I've learned... that deep down there's a light that never goes out!

Kingdom Hearts is a hybrid action-RPG that was released in 2002, which is notable for being the result of a collaboration between the video game developer and publisher Square and Disney. The game combines characters and settings from Disney's animated features and films with those from Square's Final Fantasy RPG series. Although the game's primary plotlines follow characters who were created specifically for Kingdom Hearts, characters from both companies play major roles in the game and its storyline. The game features real-time rendered backgrounds and scenery, and is followed up by Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts: 358/2 Days and Kingdom Hearts II.

  • I've been having these weird thoughts lately... Like, is any of this for real... or not? [opening movie plays, "Simple and Clean" plays in the background]
  • [Startled by Kairi's appearance] Whoa! [Sits up] Gimme a break, Kairi.
  • Oh, yeah? Well, you'll see. I'm gonna get out and learn what's out there!
  • Wait a minute! What happened to my home? My island? Riku... Kairi...
  • The darkness may destroy my body, but it can't touch my heart. My heart will stay with my friends. It'll never die!
  • Although my heart may be weak, it's not alone. It's grown with each new experience. And it's found a home with all the friends I've made. I've become a part of their heart, just as they've become a part of mine. And if they think of me now and then, if they don't forget me, then our hearts will be one. I don't need a weapon. My friends are my power!
  • Falling... Falling... Into darkness.
  • That's the power of the Keyblade!
  • Even if we're apart, we're not alone anymore.
  • The heart may be weak. And sometimes it may even give in. But I've learned that deep down, there's a light that never goes out!
  • Kairi, remember what you said before? I'm always with you, too! I'll come back to you. I promise!
  • Now, Sora! Let's close this door for good!
  • Say, fellas, did somebody mention the Door to Darkness?
  • [to Goofy] YOU'RE COMING TOO!
  • Aw, phooey. I'm not scared.
  • But you can't come along looking like that. Understand? No frowning. No sad face. Okay?
  • This boat runs on happy faces.
  • All for one and one for all!
  • Let's just get out of here!
  • Well, now what do we do?
  • Hey, why don't you come with us? We can go to other worlds on our vessel.
  • Yeah, ya gotta look funny, like us!
  • Name's Goofy.
  • All for one, one for all!
  • Now, Sora, just remember what Donald said to ya: no frowning, no sad faces.
  • I'm not gonna betray Sora, either, 'cause he's become one of my best buddies after all we've been through together!
  • But no worries. Even if this place goes poof, our hearts ain't goin' nowhere. I'm sure we'll find our pals again. Yup, I just know that we will.
  • Thanks pal! [said when given an item during a fight]
  • Somebody come quick! [said when hurt during a fight]
  • Sora, you lazy bum!
  • So, suppose you get to another world. What would you do there?
  • I'm making a necklace of thalassa shells. In the old days, sailors always wore thalassa shells. They were supposed to ensure a safe voyage.
  • This time, I'll protect you!
  • Take this. It's my lucky charm. Be sure to bring it back to me, okay?
  • Don't ever forget. Wherever you go... I'm always with you.
  • Sora, are you really...? No, he can't be! I WON'T LET HIM GO!
  • I know you will!
  • Hey, aren't you guys forgetting about me?
  • It's just... I've always wondered why we're here on this island. If there are any other worlds out there, why did we end up on this one? And suppose there are other worlds... Then ours is just a little piece of something much greater. So we could have just as easily ended up somewhere else, right?
  • Exactly. That's why we need to go out there and find out. Just sitting here won't change a thing. It's the same old stuff. So let's go.
  • Thanks to you. If you hadn't come here, I probably would've never thought of any of this. Kairi, thanks.
  • If two people share one, their destinies become intertwined. They'll remain a part of each other's lives, no matter what. C'mon, I know you want to try it.
  • I get to share the paopu with Kairi. Deal? The winner gets to share a paopu with Kairi.
  • The door has opened, Sora! Now we can go to the outside world! Once we step through, we might not be able to come back. We may never see our parents again. There's no turning back. But this may be our only chance. We can't let fear stop us! I'm not afraid of the darkness!
  • I have some unfinished business with this puppet.
  • You were just the delivery boy!
  • Only the Keyblade master can open the secret door, and change the world.
  • Giving up already? Come on, Sora. I thought you were stronger than that.
  • Possessed by Ansem
    • Yes. A Keyblade. But unlike yours, this Keyblade holds the power to unlock people's hearts. Allow me to demonstrate... behold!
    • Now, open your heart, surrender it to the darkness! Become darkness itself!
    • A fitting end for such a fool.
    • Kairi's heart rests within you!
    • It is I, Ansem. The Seeker of Darkness!
    • Open the door! Lead me into everlasting darkness!
    • Behold the power of darkness!
    • Well, what now?
    • You're nothing!
    • Show me your power!
    • Here it comes.
    • You're finished!
    • Give up yet?
    • Is that it?
    • Try to heal this!
    • Welcome oblivion!
    • Now witness true power!
    • Behold the power of darkness!
    • It's over.
    • Open your heart to darkness!
    • My skills failed.
  • This world has been connected. Tied to the darkness... soon to be completely eclipsed. You do not yet know what lies beyond the door. There is so very much to learn. You understand so little... A meaningless effort. One who knows nothing can understand nothing.
  • Open yourself to the darkness. That is all. Let your heart, your being, become darkness itself.
  • Take a look at this tiny place. To the heart seeking freedom this island is a prison surrounded by water. And so this boy sought out to escape from his prison. He sought a way to cross over into other worlds. And he opened his heart to darkness.
  • Don't bother. Your voice can no longer reach him where he is. His heart belongs again to darkness! All worlds begin in darkness, and all so end. The heart is no different. Darkness sprouts within it, it grows, consumes it. Such is its nature. In the end, every heart returns to the darkness whence it came! You see, darkness is the heart's true essence.
  • So you have come this far, and still you understand nothing. Every light must fade, every heart returns to darkness!
  • Behold the endless abyss! Within lies the heart of all worlds: Kingdom Hearts! Look as hard as you are able. You'll not find even the smallest glimmer of light. From these dark depths are all hearts born. Even yours. Darkness conquers all worlds!
  • [last words] Light... But... Why...
  • In that case, by all means.
  • (Final word to Sora before fading away for good) What? It is time to move on, boy... There is more to seek... so go forth now, and seek it...
  • Fight
    • Return to darkness!
    • Submit!
    • You insolent little...
    • Darkness... Now, you weak-hearted fools... Witness REAL power!
    • My strength returns...What do you hope to accomplish? Do not deny your fear. The final darkness is nigh. [Dark Shadow]
    • Take this!
    • Come guardian!
    • Come, open your heart.
    • Welcome the darkness into your heart.
    • Still confused? Then perhaps this will enlighten you!
    • All shall be extinguished...
    • Is this the answer? It can't be!
  • That name rings familiar.
    • when asked if he is Ansem
  • Impressive. This will be enjoyable.
  • I am -- but a mere shell.
  • To Sora
    • Ah... It seems you are special, too
    • You remind me of him.
    • It means you are not whole. You are incomplete. Allow me -- to test your strength.
    • It is beyond your comprehension, for now. Until we meet again.
  • (after defeat) Bested... yet again...
  • (answering Sora) I feel... the emptiness where my companions once stood. I took them for granted. And now,I have... nothing. My first surge of emotions in years... for as long as I can remember... and it's... loneliness. Do you see? A heart is just pain.
  • (final words before fading away for good) Really? It must take... incredible strength...
  • Looks like things are worse than we thought. A lot worse!
  • That's Leon!
  • And there is darkness within every heart.
  • The Heartless have great fear of the Keyblade. That's why they'll keep coming after you no matter what.
  • You know what? I really don't know.
  • Sora, go with them. Especially if you want to find your friends.
  • Yuffie, go! Sora, let's go!
  • Every world among the stars has a Keyhole. And each one leads to the heart of that world.
  • We may never meet again, but we'll never forget each other.
  • It's Over! [Using Rough Divide]
  • Our hearts will bring us together again.
  • [to Sephiroth] As long as you exist, I'll never wake from this nightmare.
  • Farewell.
  • Got you going.
  • Is that the best you can do?
  • Meet your fate!
  • Dodge this!
  • Descend, Heartless Angel!
  • Time to die!
  • I am the chosen one.
  • I shall lead you to the promised land!
  • The planet has failed me!


Sora: Say, Kairi, what was your hometown like? You know, where you grew up.
Kairi: I told you before, I don't remember.
Sora: Nothing at all?
Kairi: Nothing.
Sora: You ever want to go back?
Kairi: Hmm... Well, I'm happy here. But you know... I wouldn't mind going to see it.
Sora: I'd like to see it too. Along with any other worlds out there. I wanna see 'em all!

Riku: Sora! [He throws a paopu to Sora] You wanted one, didn't you?
Sora: A paopu fruit...
Riku: If two people share one, their destinies become intertwined. They'll remain a part of each others lives no matter what. C'mon, I know you want to try it.
Sora: What are you talking– [Riku laughs and runs away, Sora throws away the paopu and follows him after Kairi]

Donald: Wake up, Goofy, wake up! This is serious!
[Goofy continues to sleep. In a fit of anger, Donald casts a spell that strikes Goofy with lightning and wakes Goofy in an instant.]
Goofy: Hey there, Donald. G'morning.
Donald: We've got a problem, Goofy! But don't tell anyone...
Goofy: Queen Minnie?
Donald: Not even the queen.
Goofy: Daisy?
Donald: No! It's top secret!
Goofy: G'morning, ladies.
Donald: What? [looks behind himself to see Queen Minnie and Daisy right there, eavesdropping the whole time. Donald laughs nervously.]

Kairi: You know, Riku has changed.
Sora: What do you mean?
Kairi: Well...
Sora: You okay?
Kairi: Sora! Let's take the raft and go—just the two of us!
Sora: Huh?
Kairi: Just kidding.
Sora: What's gotten into you? You're the one that's changed, Kairi.
Kairi: Maybe... You know, I was a little afraid at first, but now I'm ready. No matter where I go or what I see, I know I'll always come back here. Right?
Sora: Yeah, of course!
Kairi: That's good. Sora, don't ever change.
Sora: Huh?
Kairi: I just can't wait. Once we set sail, it'll be great.

Donald: [reads a letter from King Mickey aloud] Donald, Sorry to rush off without sayin' goodbye, but there's big trouble brewin'. Not sure why, but the stars have been blinkin' out, one by one. And that means disaster can't be far behind. I hate to leave you all but I've gotta go check into it. There's someone with a "key"—the key to our survival. So I need you and Goofy to find him, and stick with him. Got it? We need that key or we're doomed! So go to Traverse Town and find Leon. He'll point you in the right direction. P.S. Would ya apologize to Minnie for me? Thanks, pal.
Daisy: Oh dear! What could this mean?
Minnie: It means... We'll just have to trust the king.
Goofy: Gawrsh, I sure hope he's alright.
Donald: Your Highness, don't worry. We'll find the king and this key.
Minnie: Thank you, both of you.
Donald: Daisy, can you take care of the—
Daisy: Of course. You be careful now, both of you.
Minnie: Oh, and to chronicle your travels, he will accompany you.

Goofy: While we're in other worlds, we can't let on where we're from. We gotta protect the world border!
Donald: "Order"!
Goofy: Right. World order. I guess we'll need new duds when we get there.

Donald: Where's that key...
Goofy: Uh, Donald. Ya know, I betcha that...
Donald: Aw, what do you know, you big palooka?
Goofy: [scratching his head, then following Donald] What do I know? Hmm...

Leon: They'll come at you out of nowhere.
Sora: Who are you?
Leon: And they'll keep on coming at you, as long as you continue to wield the Keyblade. But why? Why would it choose a kid like you?
Sora: Hey, what's that supposed to mean?
Leon: Never mind. Now, let's see that Keyblade.
Sora: What? There's no way you're getting this!
Leon: [about to attack] Alright, then have it your way.

[In Hollow Bastion]
Hades: That little squirt took down that Heartless! Who'd have thought it?
Jafar: Such is the power of the Keyblade. The child's strength is not his own.
Ursula: Why don't we turn him into a Heartless? [laughs] That'll settle things quick enough.
Captain Hook: And the brat's friends are the king's lackeys. Swoggle me eyes, they're all bilge rats by the look of them.
Oogie Boogie: You're no prize yourself.
Captain Hook: Shut up!
Maleficent: Enough. The Keyblade has chosen him. Will it be he who conquers the darkness? Or will the darkness swallow him? Either way, he could be quite useful...

Goofy: Wouldn't that be muddling?
Donald: "Meddling"!

Cloud: The great god of the Underworld is afraid of some kid? Sorry, but my contract says...
Hades: I know! You think I don’t know? I wrote the contract! I know you're only required to take out Hercules in this tournament. But you’ve gotta fight that kid to get to him. Come on. Hey, it’s like that old goat says: Rule 11: it’s all just a game, so let loose and have fun with it! I mean, a casualty or two along the way is no big deal, right?
[Cloud walks away silently]
Hades: Geez. Stiffer than the stiffs back home. Still, suckers like him are hard to come by...

Sora: Hey, are you all right?
Cloud: Yeah.
Sora: So... why you go along with him anyway?
Cloud: I'm looking for someone. Hades promised to help. I tried to exploit the power of darkness, but it backfired. I fell into darkness, and I couldn't find the light.
Sora: You'll find it. I'm searching too.
Cloud: For your light?
[Sora nods]
[Cloud stands up, hands Sora a Gummi Block]
Cloud: Don't lose sight of it.
Sora: Hey, how about a rematch next time? Fair and square. No dark powers involved!
Cloud: [smiles] I think I'll pass.

Tarzan: Tarzan. Tarzan go.
Sora: And I'm...Sora. Tarzan go, Sora go go!

[In Hollow Bastion, after the battle with Clayton]
Jafar: What drew the Heartless to that world?
Maleficent: The hunter lured them there. It was his lust for power that was the bait. But it seems the bait was too tasty for his own good.
Oogie Boogie: [laughs] Yeah, he got chomped instead!
Jafar: A weak-hearted fool like him stood no chance against the Heartless. But the boy is a problem. He found one of the Keyholes.
Maleficent: Fear not. It will take him ages to find the rest. Besides, he remains blissfully unaware of our other plan.
Ursula: Yes, the princesses...
Maleficent: They are falling into our hands, one by one.
[It reveals they've captured Alice or Snow White, depending on if the player completed Wonderland before Deep Jungle]
Maleficent: Speaking of which...

[In the world of Agrabah]
Maleficent: And the Keyhole?
Jafar: The Heartless are searching for it now. I'm certain we'll find it soon enough. So that just leaves...
[Iago appears]
Iago: Jafar! I've looked everywhere for Jasmine. She's disappeared like magic!
Jafar: The girl is more trouble than she's worth.
Maleficent: You said you had things under control.
Jafar: Agrabah is full of holes for rats to hide in. But why worry about Princess Jasmine? With her or without her, surely this world will be ours when we find the Keyhole.
Maleficent: We need all seven princesses of heart to open the final door. Any fewer is useless.
Jafar: Well, if the princess is that important, we'll find her. Find Jasmine and bring her to me at once.
[Jafar's Heartless goes to find Jasmine]
Maleficent: Don't steep yourself in darkness too long. The Heartless consume the careless.
Jafar: [laughs] Your concern is touching, but hardly necessary.
[Jasmine is hiding behind the fruit stand]

Jafar: Aladdin? Where might I find this street rat? Jasmine, allow me to find you more suitable company, my dear princess. These little rats won't do, you see.
Sora: Jasmine, run!
[Jasmine escapes]
Jafar: Ah, the boy who holds the key.

[In the Treasure Chamber]
Jafar: My first wish, Genie! Show me the Keyhole!
[Genie reveals the Keyhole]
Maleficent: That boy again?
Jafar: He's more persistent than I expected. Why not explain the situation to that boy Riku? Doing so may actually prove useful to our–
[Sora and the others arrived]

Sora: Wait a second. Are you Maleficent?
[Maleficent disappears]
Aladdin: Jafar, let Jasmine go!
Jafar: Not a chance. You see, she's a princess—one of seven who somehow hold the key to opening the door.
Goofy: Open...
Donald: ...the door?
Jafar: But you fools won't live to see what lies beyond it. Genie! My second wish. Crush them!
Aladdin: Genie, no!
Genie: Sorry, Al. The one with the lamp calls the shot. I don't have a choice.
[After the first battle]
Jafar: Genie! My final wish! I want you to make me an all-powerful genie!

[In the Council of Villains]
Hades: That smarmy vizier could've had 'em—if someone had stuck around to give him a hand.
Riku: Hey, I did my part. I brought the princess, didn't I?
Maleficent: Jafar was beyond help, consumed by his own hatred. One should beware of letting it burn too fiercely.
Hades: Whoa, whoa, whoa. Lighten up. I'm as cool as they come, okay? By the way, kid, have we got something special for you.
Riku: Huh?
Maleficent: We had a deal, yes? You help us, and we grant you your wish...
[Maleficent reveals Kairi]
Riku: Kairi!
Maleficent: Go to her, your vessel is waiting.
[Captain Hook appears]
Captain Hook: Just remember, this is no pleasure cruise. It won't be a pleasant voyage.
Riku: Why are you doing all this for me? What's the catch?
Maleficent: Catch? What's the catch? Silly boy. You're like a son to me. I only want you to be happy.
Riku: I seriously doubt that.
Maleficent: Believe what you wish. But lest we forget, I kept my end of the bargain.

Goofy: Y'know, I think that ol' whale Monstro just swallowed us. And for today's weather: expect showers! [An item falls on him.] Heavy showers!
Donald: Who's there?
Pinocchio: It's me!
Donald: Oh, it's just Pinocchio. Pinocchio?!

Riku: What? You'd rather fight me? Over a puppet that has no heart?
Sora: Heart or no heart, at least he still has a conscience.
Riku: Conscience?
Sora: You might not hear it, but right now it's loud and clear. And it's telling me you're on the wrong side!

[Sora, Donald, Goofy, and Ariel are running away from the Heartless when suddenly a energy blast destroys them]
Triton: That was too close. As long as I have my trident, I will not tolerate those creatures inside this palace.
Ariel: Daddy!
Triton: Oh, Ariel! When will you listen? It's dangerous out there! Strange creatures lurk outside.
Sebastian: Behold. You swim before the ruler of the seas: His Majesty, King Triton.
Triton: And who are they?
Ariel: They helped us fight off those creatures.
Triton: They don't look familiar.
Sora: We're from an ocean very far away.
Goofy: Yup. We came to find the Keyhole.
Triton: The what?
Ariel: What's that?
Goofy: Well, it's a—
Triton: There's no such thing. Certainly not here.
Ariel: But, Daddy...
Triton: Ariel, not another word! You are not to leave the palace. Is that clear?
[Ariel swims away, followed by Sora and the others]
Triton: Perhaps I'm being too strict... I'm just concerned for her safety.
Sebastian: Of course, Your Majesty. But I must admit, now I'm quite curious about this Keyhole.
Triton: That need not concern you, Sebastian. Have you anything to report?
Sebastian: Just as you suspected, Your Majesty, they seem to be coming from Ursula's grotto.
Triton: I knew it. That sea witch is up to no good again. I see exile from the palace has taught her nothing.
Sebastian: Yes, she poses serious danger.
Triton: And I told you keep Ariel away from such danger, did I not?
Sebastian: Your Majesty, please. I, uh...

[In Ursula's grotto]
Ursula: Those impudent fools will never find the Keyhole. But the girl could prove useful. And I've got the Heartless on my side. Triton, my old friend... Your day is coming.
[Ursula laughs evilly]

[Triton arrives in Ariel's grotto]
Triton: Ariel, you've disobeyed me again! I told you not to leave the palace!
[He sees the trident symbol and destroys it]
Ariel: Daddy, no! How could you...
[She swims away]
Triton: Young man, you're not from another ocean. You're from another world. Aren't you?
[Sora gasps]
Triton: Then you must be the key bearer.
Sora: How did you know?
Triton: You may fool Ariel, but you can't fool me. You don't know your dorsal fin from your tail. As the key bearer, you must already know... One must not meddle in the affairs of other worlds.
Sora: Of course I know that, but...
Triton: You have violated this principle. The key bearer shatters peace and brings ruin.
Goofy: Aw, Sora's not like that.
Triton: I thank you for saving my daughter. But there is no room in my ocean for you or your key.
[Triton leaves the grotto]

[Ariel is crying in the gardens when suddenly...]
Flotsam: My, my, the poor child suffers such deep sorrow.
Jetsam: What a pity. If only there were something we could do...
Flotsam: Wait. Maybe she can be of some help.
Jetsam: Yes. Maybe she can be of some help to you.
Ariel: Who're you talking about?
Jetsam: Oh, she would surely help you.
Flotsam: She'd make all your dreams come true.
Flotsam and Jetsam: Ursula can help...
[Ursula appears]
Ursula: You called, my dear?
Ariel: You're Ursula? I was just wondering if—
Ursula: It's all right. Helping others is what I live for. Let me guess. You wish to see other worlds. That shouldn't be too hard. After all, your new friends came from another world.
Ariel: What?
Ursula: But they had special help—that mysterious key.
Ursula: Now, now. Cheer up, sweetie. You have something special, too. Now listen carefully.
[Ariel and Ursula arrives at the palace]
Ursula: I think the Keyhole they seek is somewhere in the palace. Now, my dear, if you can take me there without your daddy knowing... I can help you get to these other worlds you long for.

[Sora and the others arrives at the palace when suddenly...]
Ursula: [laughs] The trident is mine at last! And I couldn't have done it without your help, my dear.
Ariel: Ursula, no! I didn't want this!
Ursula: Why not? Aren't you tired of following your dear daddy's orders? Oh, yes. We had a deal, didn't we? Time for a little journey—to the dark world of the Heartless!
Flotsam: We cannot find the Keyhole.
Jetsam: The Keyhole is not here.
Ursula: What?
[She sees Sora, Donald, and Goofy]
Ursula: Why, we have company. I'm afraid you're a little late, handsome!
[Ursula disappears]
Ariel: Daddy!
Triton: [injured] The trident... We must get it back.
Sora: Come on, let's go!
Ariel: Wait, I'm going with you! My father is hurt and it's all my fault! I have to stop Ursula!
Sebastian: That's right. I'm right behind you, Ariel.
Ursula: You pathetic fools! I rule the seas now! The sea and all its spoils bow to my power!

Riku: I didn't think you'd come, Sora. Good to see you again.
Sora: Where are Donald and Goofy?
Riku: Are they that important to you? More important than old friends? Instead of worrying about them, you should be asking... about her.
[He reveals Kairi who's in a really bad shape]
Sora: Kairi!
Riku: That's right. While you were off goofing around, I finally found her.
[Sora runs to her but he's stopped by Captain Hook]
Captain Hook: Not so fast. No shenanigans aboard my vessel, boy.
Sora: Riku, why are you siding with the Heartless?
Riku: The Heartless obey me now, Sora. Now I have nothing to fear.
Sora: You're stupid. Sooner or later they'll swallow your heart.
Riku: Not a chance. My heart's too strong.
Sora: Riku...
Riku: I've picked up a few other tricks as well. Like this, for instance.
[He summons a shadow of Sora]
Riku: You can go see your friends now.
[Sora fells into a trap door]
Riku: Let's get under way, already. And keep Sora away from Kairi until we're ready to land.
Captain Hook: That scurvy brat thinks he can order me around!
Mr. Smee: What shall we do, Captain Hook?
Captain Hook: Nothing! The hold is crawling with Heartless. Let them keep an eye on the brats.
Mr. Smee: But, Captain, you-know-who is also down—
Captain Hook: Shh... Did you hear that, Smee? Oh, that dreadful sound!
Mr. Smee: No, Captain.
Captain Hook: Are you quite sure? Did I imagine it? Oh, my poor nerves...

[In the ship's cabin...]
Captain Hook: What? So Wendy's not one of the chosen ones?
Riku: There are seven, supposedly, and Maleficent says she's not one of them. Hoist anchor as soon as possible. Leave all the dead weight behind, including her.
Captain Hook: After the trouble of capturing her? And why those seven? What is Maleficent planning, anyway?
Riku: Who knows? As long as it means getting Kairi's heart back, I couldn't care less.
Captain Hook: You're wasting your time! The Heartless have devoured that girl's heart. I'll stake me other hand it's lost forever.
Riku: I will find it no matter what.
Mr. Smee: Uh, Captain...
Captain Hook: What?
Mr. Smee: The prisoners have escaped. What's more, Peter Pan is with them.
Captain Hook: Blast that Peter Pan! All right, then! Bring the hostage to me cabin, Smee! Hop to it!

Sora: I still can't believe it. I really flew. Wait ‘til I tell Kairi. I wonder if she'll believe me. Probably not.
Peter Pan: You can bring her to Never Land sometime. Then she can try it herself.
Sora: If you believe, you can do anything, right? I'll find Kairi. I know I will.

[In Hollow Bastion...]
Maleficent: It was reckless to bring her here without at least using a vessel. Remember, relying too heavily on the dark powers could cost you your heart.
[A roar is being heard outside the castle]
Maleficent: A castaway. Though his world perished, his heart did not. When we took the princess from his castle, he apparently followed her here through sheer force of will. But fear not. No harm will come to you. He is no match for your power.
Riku: My power?
Maleficent: Yes, the untapped power that lies within you. Now, child, it's time you awakened that power and realized your full potential.
[Riku unleashed his true power]

[Sora sees a young Kairi in the Hollow Bastion library with her grandmother]
Sora: Where am I?
Kairi's grandmother: Long ago, people lived in peace, bathed in the warmth of light. Everyone loved the light. Then people began to fight over it. They wanted to keep it for themselves. And darkness was born in their hearts. The darkness spread, swallowing the light and many people's hearts. It covered everything, and the world disappeared. But small fragments of light survived... in the hearts of children. With these fragments of light, children rebuilt the lost world. It's the world we live in now. But the true light sleeps, deep within the darkness. That's why the worlds are still scattered, divided from each other. But someday, a door to the innermost darkness will open. And the true light will return. So, listen, child. Even in the deepest darkness, there will always be a light to guide you. Believe in the light, and the darkness will never defeat you. Your heart will shine with its power and push the darkness away. Do you understand, Kairi?
Sora: Kairi?!

Riku: No vessel, no help from the Heartless... So tell me, how'd you get here?
Beast: I simply believed. Nothing more to it. When our world fell into darkness, Belle was taken from me. I vowed I would find her again no matter what the cost. I believed I would find her. So, here I am. She must be here. I WILL HAVE HER BACK!
Riku: Take her, if you can!

[At the Grand Hall...]
Ansem: So, I see the path has emerged at last.
Maleficent: Yes. The Keyhole to the darkness.
Ansem: Unlock it and the Heartless will overrun this world.
Maleficent: What do I care? The darkness holds no power over me. Rather, I will use its power to rule all worlds.
Ansem: Such confidence.
[Ansem summons his Keyblade]
Maleficent: Oh! Impossible! The princesses of heart are all here! It must be her.
Ansem: Without her heart, she will never be able to release her power.
Maleficent: The king's fools are here. I'll deal with them myself. You stay here and guard the princesses.

[Sora and the others arrived at the Grand Hall]
Sora: Kairi! Kairi! Kairi! Open your eyes!
Ansem: It's no use. That girl has lost her heart. She cannot wake up.
Sora: What? You... You're not Riku.
Ansem: The Keyhole cannot be completed so long as the last princess of heart still sleeps.
Sora: The princess...? Kairi's a princess?
Ansem: Yes, and without her power, the Keyhole will remain incomplete. It is time she awakened.
Sora: Whoever you are, let Riku go! Give him back his heart!
Ansem: But first, you must give the princess back her heart.
[Sora is struggling with his heart]
Donald: Sora!
Sora: What's...
Ansem: Don't you see yet? The princess's heart is responding. It has been there all along. Kairi's heart rests within you!
Sora: Kairi... Kairi's inside me?
Ansem: I know all that there is to know.
Sora: Tell me. Who are you?
Ansem: It is I, Ansem, the seeker of darkness.
[Donald runs to stop him but Ansem knocked him out]
Ansem: So, I shall release you now, Princess. Complete the Keyhole with your power. Open the door, lead me into everlasting darkness!
[Ansem is about to strike Sora when suddenly...]
Kairi: Sora!
[Sora blocks his attack with his Keyblade]
Sora: Forget it! There's no way you're taking Kairi's heart!

Riku: You'd betray your king?
Goofy: Not on your life! But I'm not gonna betray Sora either.

[After Riku is defeated by Sora]
Riku: Why? It was mine.
Hooded Man: Know this. The heart that is strong and true shall win the Keyblade.
Riku: What? You're saying my heart's weaker than his?
Hooded Man: For that instant, it was. However, you can become stronger. You showed no fear in stepping through the door to darkness. It held no terror for you. Plunge deeper into the darkness, and your heart will grow even stronger.
Riku: What should I do?
Hooded Man: It's really quite simple. Open yourself to the darkness. That is all. Let your heart, your being, become darkness itself.

[Sora and the others at the Grand Chapel]
Maleficent: I'm afraid you're too late. Any moment now, the final Keyhole will be unsealed. This world will be plunged into darkness. It is unstoppable.
Sora: We'll stop it! After coming this far, there's no way we're gonna let that happen!
Maleficent: You poor, simple fools. You think you can defeat me? Me, the mistress of all evil?

[Maleficent is gravely injured after the first battle and possessed Riku arrives]
Riku: Do you need some help?
Sora: Riku!
Donald: Is that—
Riku: Yes. A Keyblade. But unlike yours, this Keyblade holds the power to unlock people's hearts. Allow me to demonstrate... Behold!
[Riku thrusts his Keyblade into Maleficent's heart]
Maleficent: Wha—
Riku: Now, open your heart, surrender it to the darkness! Become darkness itself!
[Maleficent gains more power]
Maleficent: This is it! This power! Darkness... The true darkness!
[Maleficent use her power and transformed into a dragon]

[After Ansem is beaten]
Sora: A Keyblade that unlocks people's hearts... I wonder.
Goofy: Sora?
[Sora takes Ansem's keyblade and they realize what he is thinking]
Goofy: Sora, hold on!
Donald: No, wait!
[Sora smiles and impales himself on the keyblade and releases his heart and the hearts of all the princesses; Kairi awakens but Sora begins to fade]
Donald: Sora... Sora!
Kairi: Sora!
[Sora turns into yellow sparkles]
Donald: Sora! Come back, Sora!
Sora: What's... What's happening to me? Falling... falling... into darkness.
Kairi: Sora, are you really... No. He can't be! I won't let him go!
[Ansem arrives]
Ansem: So, you have awakened at last, Princess. The Keyhole is now complete. You have served your purpose. But now it's over.
Donald: Don't make another move!
Goofy: Do you think we can stop him all by ourselves?
Donald: I don't know!
[Riku's heart starts to fight back]
Ansem: Impossible...
Riku: No. You won't use me for this!
Kairi: Riku!
Riku: You've got to run! The Heartless are coming!

[Kairi, Donald, and Goofy start running and a Heartless follows them]
Donald: ...Confounded Heartless! Get lost, will ya?
Kairi: Sora? Is that you?

Sora: I was lost in the darkness. I couldn't find my way. As I stumbled through the dark, I started forgetting things—my friends, who I was. The darkness almost swallowed me. But then I heard a voice—your voice. You brought me back.
Kairi: I didn't want to just forget about you, Sora. I couldn't.
Sora: That's it! Our hearts are connected. And the light from our hearts broke through the darkness. I saw that light. I think that's what saved me. No matter how deep the darkness, a light shines within.

I know now, without a doubt, Kingdom Hearts... is light!
Ansem: It is futile. The Keyblade alone cannot seal the door to darkness. Kingdom Hearts! Fill me with the power of darkness... [The Door to Darkness begins to creak open with ominous black smoke seeping out.] Supreme darkness...
Sora: You're wrong. I know now, without a doubt, Kingdom Hearts... is light!
[Light comes out of the Door to Darkness.]
Ansem: Ugh... Li- light... But- but why?

[The group tries in vain to close the Door to Darkness.]
Donald: Hurry!
Sora: I can't...
Riku: Don't give up!
[Riku appears on the other side of the doors.]
Riku: Come on, Sora! Together, we can do it!
Sora: Okay!
[The four try harder to close the door, but the Heartless are approaching.]
Donald: It's hopeless!
[Light pierces the darkness on Riku's side of the door, destroying the Heartless. Goofy and Donald gasp as a silhouette appears.]
Donald & Goofy: Your Majesty!
Mickey: [holds his Keyblade up] Now, Sora! Let's close this door for good!
Donald: Close it, quick!
Sora: But...
Mickey: Don't worry. There will always be a door to the light.
Goofy: Sora, you can trust King Mickey.
Riku: Now! They're coming!
Mickey: Donald, Goofy, thank you.
[Sora's group closes the door. Riku turns to Sora before he is locked inside the realm of darkness.]
Riku: Take care of her.
