One thing I think Kingdom Hearts fumbles quite a bit…is the idea of a nobody.
They’re beings without hearts. Therefore they have no emotions. OK, fair enough.
But for the vast duration of the time we see them, they tend to act quite emotionally.
Their masks are so complete, but it can’t be an easy thing for a purely logical being to act illogically almost all the time. Often their feigned emotions run contrary to their goals; prevent them from acting purely pragmatically. This is most evident with Vexen, who is both prideful to a fault and needlessly coy.
Why? Why do the nobodies act as they do? The games hardly offer a sufficient explanation.
I, However, have a theory. I believe they actually are capable of feeling certain emotions. They are capable of feeling emptiness and sorrow, and a deep yearning for their lost heart.
And clinging to how they acted when they had hearts; that diminishes the emptiness somewhat. Acting as if they had emotions; it’s the closest thing they can have to a real heart.
Actually they just regrew their hearts anyway, so they could feel any emotions. The newest game finally confirmed that, but yeah as you and many others caught on way back in even KH2, the whole not having emotions thing was false. Xemnas lied to them to give them a goal to achieve by creating Kingdom Hearts, even though he really just wanted to fuse with it and ascend to a greater being apparently all along.
Edit: Ah wait, I just read your reply to someone else about this as well. :P
