FF16's Clive: Perfect Fit for KH4

Kingdom Hearts 4: Clive and Sora – The Perfect Dark Duo


Get ready, Kingdom Hearts fans, because Kingdom Hearts 4 is bringing some serious darkness to the beloved franchise. Based on the initial trailers and artwork, it looks like this installment is taking a much more serious turn. And you know what that means? It’s the perfect opportunity to bring in Final Fantasy 16’s brooding protagonist, Clive, to join forces with Sora. I mean, his home game is one of the darkest entries in the Final Fantasy series, so it’s a match made in heaven, or should I say, in Quadratum!

Now, if there’s one thing Kingdom Hearts does well, it’s the crossover between Final Fantasy and Disney properties. From Cloud to Auron to Vivi, these iconic characters have graced the series alongside Donald, Goofy, and the one and only Mickey Mouse. And let’s not forget about the gang from The World Ends with You making an appearance in Kingdom Hearts 3D: Dream Drop Distance. So, it’s only natural to imagine Clive stepping into the Kingdom Hearts universe in all his brooding glory.

Speaking of brooding, Clive’s desGameTopic is a perfect fit for Kingdom Hearts 4’s darker tone. The game takes us to the world of Quadratum, a more realistic setting based on Shibuya. Sora wakes up here after seemingly meeting his demise in Kingdom Hearts 3. But hey, don’t worry, our hero is back and ready to embrace the darkness. And who better to guide him through this new world than Clive? Final Fantasy 16 tackles heavy themes like war, slavery, and grief, and while Kingdom Hearts 4 may not go as deep, Clive’s experiences can provide valuable lessons for Sora as he navigates his own grief and separation from loved ones.

But it’s not just about the story and themes; the gameplay connection between Final Fantasy 16 and Kingdom Hearts 4 is strong too. Final Fantasy 16’s combat feels like it’s taken a page out of Kingdom Hearts’ book, with its fluid, action-based mechanics. Clive would fit right in with his impressive battle prowess, making him a perfect companion for Donald and Goofy as they embark on their quest to reunite with Sora. Who needs a Keyblade when you have Clive by your side?

Now, I know what you’re thinking. Clive’s medieval fantasy aesthetic might clash a bit with Quadratum’s real-world vibe, but trust me, Kingdom Hearts has a knack for redesGameTopicing characters to fit its unique style. Just look at how Sora’s appearance has evolved over the years. It’s safe to say that Clive would undergo a similar transformation to blend seamlessly into this new setting.

So get ready, folks, because Kingdom Hearts 4 is shaping up to be one epic adventure. With its darker tone, the inclusion of Clive would bridge the gap between Final Fantasy’s dark storytelling and the evolving tone of the Kingdom Hearts series. We can’t wait to see what Square Enix has in store for us!

Remember, Kingdom Hearts 4 is now in development. Stay tuned for more updates!
