Kingdom Hearts brings together two things all Millenials love: Final Fantasy style role playing video games with indelible Disney characters one can interact with. Aided by Disney stalwarts Donald Duck and Goofy, protagonists Sora and Riku go on a quest to defeat Master Xehanort and Organization XIII across infamous Disney environments like Sleeping Beauty's castle, the Pride Lands, and even Mickey Mouse's original steamboat. Full of memorable characters such as Axel and Ansem, these quotes from the Kingdom Hearts franchise are sure to get you feeling nostalgic about the days when the PlayStation 2 was king of the consoles.

I’ve been having these weird thoughts lately… Like, is any of this for real… or not?
The darkness may destroy my body, but it can’t touch my heart. My heart will stay with my friends. It’ll never die!
Thanks to you. If you hadn’t come here, I probably would’ve never thought of any of this. Kairi, thanks.
I’m no hero… I’m just an…Auron. My name.
Don’t ever forget. Wherever you go… I’m always with you.
Let’s cut to the chase. Here’s the deal I’m gonna offer you. I’ll let you out of the slammer – no strings – you’ll be free as a bird.
Behold the endless abyss! Withing it 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 those dark depths are all hearts born. Even yours.
Now, Sora, just remember what Donald said to ya: no frowning, no sad faces.
Did you forget who you’re talking to? I am the Lord of the Dead!
He was the only one I liked. He made me feel… like I had a heart.
The first to run out of time is the loser.
You’re wrong! I know now, without a doubt, Kingdom Hearts… is light!
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.
You really do remember me this time? I’m SO FLATTERED!
I’m not gonna give up now. I came here to find someone very important to me.
Look at what it’s come to. I’ve been given all these icky orders to destroy you- if you refuse to come back with me.
The closer you get to the light, the greater your shadow becomes.
This world is just too small.
Absurd. Defeating me is meaningless. You know that more than anyone, Cloud. No matter how many times I fall, Your darkness keeps calling me back!
All for one and one for all!
This time, I’ll protect you!
This boat runs on happy faces.
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?
Sora. You’re lucky. Looks like my summer vacation is… over.
Take this. It’s my lucky charm. Be sure to bring it back to me, okay?
We may never meet again, but we’ll never forget each other.
It’s me. You know. Axel.
He dosent have too. He just needs someone to surrond him with light. The darkness will be there , Sephiroth. But in a place you can’t reach!
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!
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.
No matter where we are, our hearts will bring us together again.
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!
The darkness in men’s hearts drawn to these cursed medallions, and this Heartless… a veritable maelstrom of avarice…
All my life, I’ve been protecting others… But now, there’s no one left to protect. Maybe… It’s time I shaped my own story.
My thoughts exactly! If you have a dream, don’t wait. Act. One of life’s little rules. Got it memorized?
Maybe he can set things right. A boy like him who touches so many hearts—he could open the right door, and save all those people whose lives I managed to ruin. So many are still waiting for their new beginning, their birth by sleep. Even me… and even you.
True… we don’t have hearts. But we remember what it was like. That’s what makes us special. We know all too well how to injure a heart.
Whatever you think is right, is wrong.
You said we’d meet again, but when we did, we might not recognize each other… I think I understand. I see myself the way you remember me. And you see yourself the way I remember you.
It seems we were fated to meet. Maybe you need a guardian?
Don’t be reckless. Do you want to end up like Riku?
Somehow, I just knew you’d be here. I tell ya Kairi, you’ve got a lot of guts, jumping right into the darkness like that.
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.
I know now I don’t need the Keyblade. I’ve got a better weapon. My heart.
Thanks to you, we’ve collected countless hearts. Just look there! Can you hear their euphoria?
And Sora…about that friend of yours, the one you’re looking for…You’ll find him. Trust me.
You accept darkness, yet choose to live in the light. So why is it that you loathe us who teeter on the edge of nothing? We who were turned away by both light and dark – never given a choice?
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.
No wonder no one wants to die.
When he sees the heart in something, it then becomes real. When a connection seems broken, he may have the power to mend it. He has touched countless hearts, he has accepted them, and he has saved them. And some of those hearts have never left him- whether they fell into darkness or were trapped there- whether they sleep in the darkness of Sora’s heart, or were welcomed into its warmth- they can be saved. All Sora needs to do is be himself and follow wherever it is that his heart takes him.
A scattered memory like a far-off dream. A far-off dream like a scattered memory. I want to line the pieces up, yours and mine.
Let’s see here: “If the subject fails to respond, use aggression to liberate his true disposition.” Right… Did they ever pick the wrong guy for this one.
We’ve got something in common, Kairi. We both miss someone we care about. Hey, I feel like we’re friends already.
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.
If I had a heart, this would be where I would die of laughter.
Kairi, remember what you said before? I’m always with you, too! I’ll come back to you. I promise!
Oh, we do too have hearts. Don’t be mad…
I don’t know who these Organizers are, but I will say they’re makin’ we pirates look like proper gents.
Don’t stop moving, or the darkness will overtake you!
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!
Oh, yeah? Well, you’ll see. I’m gonna get out and learn what’s out there!
Let’s meet again, in the next life.
Thinking of you, wherever you are. We pray for our sorrows to end, and hope that our hearts will blend. Now I will step forward to realize this wish. And who knows: Starting a new journey may not be so hard, or maybe it has already begun. There are many worlds, but they share the same sky—one sky, one destiny.
Yeah, but you and I didn’t. We got to meet our original selves.
Whoever you are, let Riku go! Give him back his heart!
But you can’t come along looking like that. Understand? No frowning. No sad face. Okay?
The worlds are made of Light and Darkness. You can’t have one without the other, because darkness is half of everything.
You should share some of that hatred with Sora. He’s far too nice for his own good.
You shouldn’t judge anyone by appearance!
Giving up already? Come on, Sora. I thought you were stronger than that.
