An Updated List of the Seekers of Darkness

An Updated List of the Seekers of Darkness

Yesterday’s Kingdom Hearts III trailer not only gave us a release date of January 29, 2019, it also revealed another returning character… and a shocking twist. We now have two more names to add to the Seekers of Darkness.

If you haven’t seen the new trailer, check it out now.

Previously, we had eight of the thirteen members confirmed, so the two new announcements bring us up to 10.

After seeing Marluxia and hearing from Larxene’s VA that she would be returning in Kingdom Hearts III, it wasn’t too big of a surprise to see Larxene in the new trailer.

It’s noteworthy, however, that she has yellow eyes.

This makes Marluxia the only known member of the new Organization XIII whose eyes aren’t yellow, making that even more of an anomaly.

Larxene previously had blue-green eyes, so her eye color has definitely changed. Why hasn’t Marluxia’s?

Update: According to KH Insider, the newest Japanese trailer includes a shot of Marluxia with yellow eyes.

However, the ending of the trailer raises many more questions.

Unless it is an illusion or impostor, it appears as though Xehanort has claimed Aqua as a vessel.

This also puts Ventus in grave danger. While his heart is safe within Sora’s (and from the previous trailer, we know Vanitas is trying to claim it), his body has only been safe so far because Aqua is the only one who can navigate Castle Oblivion and reach him.

If Xehanort has Aqua, it seems like only a matter of time before gets Ventus.

(There is also a theory that the reason Sora found Eraqus’s old Keyblade in the very first Kingdom Hearts III trailer was because Aqua needs it to reach Ventus and sent it to Sora in a final effort to protect him when Xehanort got her.)

On the other hand, this could be good news for Terra. We don’t know when Xehanort possessed Aqua. If he claimed her before the events of Dream Drop Distance, he could have been the person he meant when he told Mickey “Sora and another on your list belong to me now.”

I always thought he meant Terra, but if he meant Aqua, he might have lost Terra when they re-formed.

However, Aqua could have been the replacement #13 after Xehanort failed to possess Sora.

Another trailer was shown at Sony’s press conference, allowing us to add an 11th to the list.

  • Master Xehanort
  • Ansem (Xehanort’s Heartless)
  • Xemnas
  • Young Xehanort
  • Xigbar
  • Saix
  • Vanitas
  • Marluxia
  • Larxene
  • Aqua
  • Luxord
