Kingdom Hearts 2 – But it was such a pretty butterfly!

After defeating Luxord, you can once again chat with your friends in a safe zone. Riku confusingly addresses his weapon as the “Soul Eater” here (rather than the “Way to the Dawn”), which has confounded discussion of his Keyblade for years. I personally feel it should be regarded as a gaffe on the writers’ part. Meanwhile, Kairi mentions speaking to Roxas telepathically during the prologue, though Sora seemingly still doesn’t understand that Roxas merged with him. Granted, the evidence is very thin from Sora’s perspective, but what narrative purpose does his confusion serve? We’ll explain things to him in one boss fight, but why not have explained things to him when Roxas was in front of him?
