Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix > New Ansem Reports
Kingdom Hearts: Final Mix included three new Ansem Reports that weren’t available in the original Kingdom Hearts. They are detailed below.
Ansem Report 11
Location: Defeat Kurt Zisa in Agrabah
I was reunited with an old friend at Castle Oblivion, but was unable to disclose my identity.
If he knew the situation, he would likely try to stop me from carrying out my revenge.
As much as I would dearly love to converse with him as in the old days…that is now but a hopeless dream.
My friend has been fighting in the realm of darkness. Most likely he found his way there through Traverse Town.
Like Castle Oblivion, that village also rests in the cleft between light and dark. It consists of the remnants of worlds whose hearts have been stolen by the Heartless.
It is where those who have barely escaped the destruction of their worlds eventually find themselves.
This “realm between” is quite unstable, with corridors of darkness appearing from time to time.
Whenever a world disappears, some of its inhabitants must arrive here through these corridors. Surely Sora traveled these same corridors of darkness when he first came to Traverse Town.
It seems my friend, fighting in the realm of darkness, appeared in Castle Oblivion through a corridor of darkness constructed by Organization XIII.
My new ally Riku also effected his return via one of these corridors.
He swore to me he would give his all for his best friend Sora.
In fact, Sora’s memories have been slow to return.
Thus I have asked Riku to bring me another Sora — his Nobody.
Sora is indispensable if I am to achieve my goal.
I require the Keyblade-wielding hero to fly through the realm of light and defeat Organization XIII.
Ansem Report 12
Location: Defeat Sephiroth in Olympus Coliseum
Apart from Naminé, Nobodies retain their memories of their time as humans, but Sora’s Nobody, Roxas, has lost Sora’s memories.
This is likely because Sora’s time as a Heartless was short, having recovered his heart and returned to his human form soon after leaving behind Roxas, his Nobody.
It would seem Roxas is much like Naminé. Naminé is Kairi’s Nobody, but came into being via Sora’s body and soul.
Likewise, Roxas is Sora’s Nobody, but was left behind because Sora’s Heartless regained human form using Kairi’s heart instead of his own.
It may be that Sora’s memories are slow to return because the half of him that Roxas is still lacking.
I must convert Roxas into data and return him to Sora.
As a member of Organization XIII, it was exceedingly difficult to bring Roxas in. Having lost to Roxas once, Riku laid everything on the line and used the power of darkness in their second battle, only just managing to bring Roxas back with him.
But Organization XIII grows ever nearer. Here, Twilight Town, is where Roxas was reborn as a Nobody.
This is where Roxas first encountered Organization XIII and joined its ranks. They are bound to search this place thoroughly.
First I shall convert all of Twilight Town into data and construct a “world duplicate” in Sora’s memories. I shall place Roxas within that world to live out his days and regain those memories.
There is little time.
The Organization’s schemes must be making steady progress as well.
Ansem Report 13
Location: Defeat the Unknown in Hollow Bastion
Tomorrow Sora awakens.
My long and drawn-out revenge is nearing its end.
Xehanort, who took everything away from me. Though as a Heartless he is no more, as the leader of Organization XIII his ambition once again is to capture Kingdom Hearts, the most colossal heart of all.
His Heartless had attempted to draw out the great darkness of Kingdom Hearts, created from the hearts of all worlds. His Nobody, however, is now almost finished gathering human hearts to be assimilated into Kingdom Hearts as well.
Only one mystery remains.
How did Xehanort manage to open the door that appeared in the basement of my castle…?
No…any theory posited now, when everything is nearing completion, would be meaningless.
Roxas, Ansem, Naminé…
They defy all logic, yet there they are: singular exceptions to the rule.
The theories proposed by me and by Organization XIII have been blown to pieces by a handful of strong-hearted individuals.
Sora, Kairi, Riku.
Ah, yes — Riku.
Though his heart has its weaknesses, making it prone to darkness, he found support in the hope he discovered beyond suffering.
This hope allowed him to stand his ground and turn the darkness in his heart from an enemy into his greatest weapon.
When all this is over, it is my fervent hope that he will be able to return with Sora to his island.
If I can, I should like to return to Radiant Garden, to look once more upon the beautiful water, the lovely flowers, and the hopeful smiles of the people.
Dear King, my friend!
I believe that, at some point in time, you will come across these, my truthful accounts.
How I wish I could have chatted with you again.
I was a fool, obsessed with revenge.
