- “I don't need a weapon! My friends are my power!”
- ―Sora in Kingdom Hearts
Sora is the main protagonist of the Disney/Square Enix video game series Kingdom Hearts. Sora is a teenager who originates from Destiny Islands but obtains the Keyblade, a weapons used to fight creatures known as the Heartless. In order to find the King, Donald Duck and Goofy recruit him in their journey across various worlds to save them from darkness, as well as find Sora's friends. Throughout the games, Sora journeys throughout worlds, interacting with various characters as he gains experience with the Keyblade as well as his growth as its wielder. He is voiced by Haley Joel Osment in the English version and Miyu Irino in the Japanese version.
Powers and abilities
Sora's primary strength lies in his ability to use the Keyblade, which not only allows him to vanquish the Heartless and other Darkness-based beings, but also acts as his primary weapon against foes big and small. Although Sora was not chosen to inherit one like most wielders, Ventus' heart granted this ability, as well as fast experience in using it. Over the course of the series, Sora becomes a skilled fighter and has triumphed in various feats against the most dangerous of the game's enemies.
Sora is also knowledgeable with magic, which allows him to cast various spells to aid him or cause damage onto foes. He can also use spells to heal himself and his allies or revive them whenever they fall in battle. Applying magic with his fighting skill, Sora can access other magical abilities that affect his own physical prowess, such as Drive Forms. However, these abilities only last for short periods of time.
Sora is also able to fight in combined attacks with allies or other characters. With allies, Sora can perform special attacks known as Limits in combat. In cases when the character is not physically available, Sora has the ability to summon them via Summon Gem, card or charm for a temporary time.
Kingdom Hearts series
In the Destiny Islands, Sora and his two friends, Riku and Kairi begin work on a raft, hoping to leave the island and sail to new worlds. Sora searches the island for a couple days looking for building materials and provisions. One day while exploring, Sora rediscovers the "Secret Place" he and Riku found when they were young. On the wall, he draws himself giving a paopu fruit to Kairi. Unexpectedly, an unknown figure warns Sora that the world will be consumed by darkness.
That night, when a great storm hits the island, Sora checks the raft. He sees a dark cloud in the sky and notices that the islands are being overrun with Heartless. As the island is being devoured by the darkness, Sora searches for his friends and finds Riku. Although Sora wishes to get Riku to safety, Riku refuses, and tells Sora that the door to other worlds has been opened and that he does not fear the darkness on the other side. As Sora reaches towards his friend, they both sink into the darkness. Before Sora is consumed, he receives the Keyblade, which chooses him as it wielder and frees him from the darkness. Using the keyblade, Sora fights the Heartless and reaches the Secret Place, finding Kairi. Before he can help, the door flies open. Kairi disappears and Sora is blown outside where he disappears into the darkness.
Pluto licking his face, Sora comes to in Traverse Town. After Pluto runs off, Sora meets Leon and Yuffie. The two explain the Keyblade and the Heartless to him. Next, he meets Donald and Goofy. The three fight numerous surrounding Heartless. After they introduce themselves, Donald and Goofy invite Sora to travel to other worlds with them, because of King Mickey's request. Hoping to find his friends, Sora agrees to accompany them.
Sora begins travelling through many worlds, becoming good friends with Donald and Goofy and making other friends also. Sora encounters Riku, who is being manipulated by Maleficent, numerous times and each time he sees Riku, his old friend becomes increasingly more aggresive. Riku eventually turns against Sora, leaves him alone to fight off Heartless, and takes Kairi with him. Fighting courageously, Sora goes on to Hollow Bastion. Again, he encounters Riku, who has just defeated the Beast. Defending the Beast, Sora stands against Riku. However, Riku takes control of Sora's keyblade, claiming that he is the true master of the keyblade. Reluctantly, Donald and Goofy go with Riku, because of the King's instructions to stay with the keyblade. Sora is left alone with the Beast, but the two join forces and go into the castle. When they are separated, Riku, along with Donald and Goofy, confronts Sora again, but Sora will not give in to Riku. Donald and Goofy choose to abandon Riku and go with Sora because of their friendship with him. Because he has his friends, his heart finds new strength, allowing Sora to take the Keyblade back, and brings down Riku, who draws back.
When the group find a comatose Kairi with the rest of the princesses, Sora rushes to her to wake her up. Riku (now possessed by Ansem) appears and reveals that Kairi is asleep because her heart was within Sora the whole time, and proceeds to extract it from Sora. After defeating Ansem, Sora stabs himself with Ansem's Keyblade in order to release Kairi and the rest of the princesses' hearts, causing Sora to fade away and turn into a Heartless. Although confused in his new form, Sora follows Donald, Goofy and Kairi until Kairi is able to recognize him and manages to turn Sora back to normal. However, the group is forced to flee as Heartless begin to flood, placing Kairi in the safety of Traverse Town while the trio returns to close the final Keyhole. Although successful, they discover that Ansem has departed to open Kingdom Hearts itself. Sora and company proceed to track Ansem down to the Door to Darkness and defeat him. Ansem, in desperation, tries to open the door, but Sora states that behind the door is light, which vaporizes Ansem. Unfortunately, with the door opened, Heartless begin appearing. Sora, Donald and Goofy attempt to close the door before the Heartless can come through, and receive help from the other side by Riku and King Mickey, where Sora and Mickey use their Keyblades to seal the Door to Darkness, leaving Riku and Mickey on the other side.
As the End of the World breaks apart, Sora finds Kairi and promises to return to her before they are separated, with Kairi returning to Destiny Islands. The game concludes with Sora, Donald and Goofy ending up in a grassy field when Pluto appears with a letter from Mickey, causing the trio to chase after the dog.
