I was suprised by how many requests I got for spoofing Kingdom Heart 3's trailer (err, Kingdom Hearts 2,5,1/3th I guess) I tought the trailer spoof of the second one was a failure.
Ah well, and this one isn't that funny either, tough a great opportunity for me to try out a new colour scheme effect.
Yay, cheap effects.

Right, so my thoughts about the birth by sleep trailer..
1) We get pure Square madness here, with empty poetry, characters that are conceiled to needlessly complicate things, and a war battle for no plot related reason, I'm sure.
Awesome. All there's missing is half the cast commiting suicide for no reason, and it's pure Square Enix magic.

2) Altough I like to call the trio "generic armor guy#1, generic armor guy#2 and generic armor guy#3", they actually have names. The big one's called Terra.
So yay, Terra Branfort from FF6 is in the game? Nah of course not.

Can't have references to other final fantasies then 7, 8 and X, the ones egocentric character designer Tetsuya Nomura created, in respect to his other Final fantasy design collegues.
A respect that caused the only 3 references to other final fantasies to be Setzer who's turned into a coward, Vivi who's made into a loser, and Terra who's an completely diffrent character altogether. Great.
Can't see them accidently naming a unrelated character after Cloud, can we?

Hmm, and trailer related, didn't Terra already have a keyblade before he grabs one from the graveyard? What a inhaley prick.

3)Okay, so all main characters in Square games always HAVE to be fragile teenagers, okay, but can you give them fitting outfits at least? It looks so incredibly silly when the helmets break of the armor, and there's a little 10 year old kid inside.

How come all their helmets break off so easely anyway, you'd think it's the most vital part of their armor. Then again, Mickey Mouse doens't have a helmet at all, even tough his head is as big as the rest of his body.

4)The old guy name's Xemnas, which is... WAIT, WHAT?
So let me get this straight, in the first game there's a guy who claims to be Ansem, except he isn't, since he's nothing or something.
Then there's a guy who calls himself Ansem, except his name is Xemnas, except his name is actually Xenohort. THEN there's a guy called DIz, except he's actually Ansem, and now there's a guy who's name is Xemnas too, Xemnas being an abreviation of the name Ansem... (facepalm)
4 Ansems, and none of them having any personality or interesting thing to do in the games besides being a random final boss, or commiting suicide like a good Square Enix character.

One of the future KH games better have some kind of payoff for all these dumb name "plottwists"


5) The heart shaped moon looks increasingly silly when those FMV movies are getting more violent and dramatic.

6)And then there's the hilarious ending where, after the violence and slaughter, Mickey Mouse is watching over the carnage, looking bad ass.
It's like ending Saving private Ryan with a shot of Goofy with a machine gun and a Chainsaw.
Why did they bother throwing Disney characters in anyway if the games are increasingly more anti-Disney in style and story.

7) Great, and one of the 3 generic armor guys looks just like Roxas. So first we have 500 characters with the same name, now we get 500 characters with the same face. Why yes, the story wasn't confusing enough, thanks Square.
I hope any of the new characters is capable of speaking a human language for a change.

8)So, how much do you wanna bet that all sidestories in Birth by sleep will revolve around Disney characters losing sleep, or give endless dream related hammy speeches?

Then again, Disney characters are incapeble of finishing any lecture without mentioning dreams at least once anyway.

9) I must admit, I do kinda like the old Xemnas guy, with his huge smile. Reminds me of a hyperactive friend I have, combined with master Roshi. This guy better be either hyperactive, or a pervert, or both. Just, SOME kind of personality please.

I know.
This video is entirely based on the trailer before the game was released. I had no idea what was going on and so it's entirely a parody of my impressions of the trailer all by itself.

For a more direct parody of Birth by sleep, I redirect you to my Bored to sleep series instead which is based on my experiences of the actual game.

As a prequel, it should.
And yeah, it does set up the characters...well, at least it sets up Xemnas.
And Sora...kind of.

But most side characters are still mostly unexplained and under utilised, and nothing really happens.
What do we learn about XIII besides Xemnas? Zexion is a kid? Okay. Dilan guards doors? Good for him. Saix has an evil plan that goes nowhere? Well, that's a shock. And that's pretty much it.
Most of the game is still Aqua, Terra and Ven running around aimlessly on Disney planets while everyone twiddles their thumbs.
So meh. Still underwhelming.

Do not under estimate the vague evil plans of Xehanort once he achieves the vagueness of Kingdom Hearts. Only the Keyblade Wielders, the vaguely explained warriors from the vaguely explained Keyblade Warrior, can put a stop to whatever it is Xehanort wants to do, even if it is probable Xehanort might be doing good. Because you see, vagueness is the heart's true essence.

No, this flash movie is only based on the trailer.

So it's not a trailer of my own Bored to sleep flash, it's stand alone.
So to make it clear this flash movie doesn't necesairely do the exact same things as how this scene would look like in the actual flash movie, I gave this one a diffrent title.

Well, Flash itself can be tried for free for 6 weeks from adobe's site.
Otherwise, there's Microsoft silverlight, or somrthing silvery sounding.
Never tried it, but i heard that's a animation programm too.

Actually, most of my predictions for Birth by sleep were incorrect here.

The war scene depicted WAS important to the plot, there's only one random suicide...

Well okay, my comments about the weird armor still stands.. In fact, now I'm wondering why they had armor here since they almost never wear it in the full game, and Mickey's appearence at the climax is pretty random and just a pathetic attempt in forcing Mickey into the story so he knows who Terra and the gang are.
Despite that he has absolutely nothing to do in the story besides being an occasional Deus Ex Machina.

I think I was a bit spoiled on that plottwist, so I vaguely knew it was coming.

As for my opinion, I'm a bit offended that the game keeps preaching about "bringing about the balance between good and evil", and every character even vaguely related to darkness is an idiot and killed of or imprisoned, and the only main character who's close to darkness is immediatly turned into teh main villain. Where's the balance?
Aqua represents the light side of the story, Ven the neutral side, and Terra the dark side, and Aqua is teh only one left to do something, Ven is completely out of the picture and Terra is the main villain. Bleh.

superskeetospro Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Hobbyist Traditional Artist
Lol.

Don't forget Eraqus. He's the most noticable. And actually, I think XEHANORT was the one who had the most "balance."
While he wanted a world cloaked in darkness, he thought light would be the result.

:-l

Kingdom Hearts Logic FTW.

Rogerregorroger Featured By Owner Nov 28, 2010  Hobbyist Filmographer
the villiains were indeed the only ones that made good observations or comments about teh balance of light and darkness.
Xenahort indeed, but also Hades and several others.
But after making good points, tehy immediatly act stupid and evil and get killed, just so we can discard their good arguments.
For a series that's so hammering about this balance of light and darkness, they should have the heroes be more neutral and also having light characters that are evil.
Eraqus is the closest we get to a fighter of the Light side that's kinda evilish..or at least where the game grudgingly throws in a few vague hints that he was a bit too much on the light side.

I sorta agree with you, but I'm still bent on Xehanort a bit.

He didn't do anything majorly hypocritical. He went with his diabolical/"heroic" plans.

Oh, while your on... do you need any additional lines for the KH flash, or any fixed ones?
