In KH2 she does have a few redeeming qualities though, I'll give her that much. She actually tries to fight instead of having Sora do stuff for her. But for me, I can't think of her as having no darkness due to KH1. Nice people don't hit their friends! D:<
Stage - Zido
Since I didn't see the hit in KH1, I can't say if it was supposed to be one of those friendly hits to get someone to stop talking or playing around, or if It was like a really hard hit that was supposed to hurt Sora. (Either way I don't think it was supposed to hurt him), and since I didn't play KH 1, my only assumption is that it was an in game part to have to go collect all the things, since that is pretty much how ALL games are in the begining
I could be entirely wrong about this, but these are kist my guesses based on my knowledge of videogames and Kairi's personality change from KH1 to KH2.
She's okay, I just hate that she wears that damn short pink dress! D:< I like KH1 Kairi more.
I personally hate how SE makes a lot of the females. Like Yuna, Rikku, and Paine in Final Fantasy 10-2 are dressed a little too showy. And Tiffa's first outfit (the one with the white tank top) drags A LOT of attention to her clevage. I know for a fact that a woman with a large bust would never wear something like that, no matter how proud they are of their bra size D:<
And I was actually hoping Kairi got more screentime in KH2 for the time she lacked in KH1. Yeah, the outfit annoyed me a little (mostly the color) but that's not fair at all.
But it she doesn't have a bigger part in KH3 I'm not going to be happy D:
Although that charm part really doesn't count. I see it more as her wanting HIM to bring back the charm.
