Leonard Nimoy: Master Xehanort


  • [Master Xehanort kills Master Eraqus in front of Terra's eyes] 

    Terra : Master Eraqus...

    Master Xehanort : What a sight. Why do you trouble yourself with remorse, Master Terra? The man was bent on doing harm to your friend, his own pupil.

    Terra : Master Xehanort... why?

    Master Xehanort : You know, at times I find your progress quite striking, but you still fall short. Let all that anger out, my boy. Give your heart over to darkness.

    Terra : [Brandishes his Keyblade]  What do you mean?

    Master Xehanort : Still so blind? Then I will make you see. Come to the place where all Keyblade Wielders leave their mark on fate: The Keyblade Graveyard! There, you will watch your dear Ventus and Aqua meet their ends, and the last light within you will die!

    [Master Xehanort summons an orb of darkness which shrouds the Land of Departure completely] 

    Master Xehanort : You won't need a home anymore where you're going.

    Terra : What? Xehanort!

    [Master Xehanort enters a Corridor of Darkness and disappears before Terra can follow him. Terra watches with shock and regret as his homeland crumbles apart before him, and pulls his Wayfinder out] 

    Terra : Ven... Aqua... I won't let him hurt you.

    [Leaves the Land of Departure] 

  • [Master Xehanort and Vanitas defeat Terra, Aqua and Ventus in battle, but Terra faces the two again, this time alone] 

    Master Xehanort : Admirably done. I knew this was a journey you could make. Over the unseen wall that divides darkness and light. And I was not wrong, Terra.

    Terra : My friend, Ven... you tell me, Xehanort... what did you do to him?

    Master Xehanort : Why, I did him a favour and freed him of the darkness inside him. Alas, poor Ventus never had the fortitude for such strenuous trials.

    Terra : XEHANORT!

    [Terra fights both Master Xehanort and Vanitas, and appears to be winning. He starts struggling with Master Xehanort] 

    Master Xehanort : [to Vanitas]  Go take what Ventus owes you, and take Aqua's life.

    [Vanitas leaves the battle. Terra gives chase, but Master Xehanort blocks his way] 

    Master Xehanort : You see how powerless you are to save them? Savour that rage and despair! Let it empower you!

    Terra : [Begins succumbing to darkness]  You will pay, Xehanort! Was my Master... no, my father, Eraqus, not enough for you? Leave my friends alone!

    Master Xehanort : Yes, boy! That's it! More! Let your whole heart blacken with anger!

    [Terra gives in completely, screaming. They fight once again, and Terra wins. Master Xehanort kneels down, panting heavily. Terra moves in to finish him, but a quake distracts him] 

    Master Xehanort : Oh! There, you see?

    [Points to a pillar of light behind Terra. Terra turns around and sees it] 

    Master Xehanort : The X-Blade has been forged!

    Terra : Ven!

    Master Xehanort : And now, Terra, it is time for the final union!

    [Stabs himself in the chest with his Keyblade, releasing his heart] 

    Terra : What?

    Master Xehanort : At last, our moment is here! Out with the old and brittle vessel, and in with a younger, stronger, new one! I swore I would survive and be there to see what awaited beyond the Keyblade War! And now it is your darkness that shall be the ark that sustains me!

    [Directs his heart at Terra, who shields himself with his armour, but he begins choking. Master Xehanort smiles triumphantly as his body fades into darkness. The armour collapses off Terra, revealing that he is now the new Xehanort] 

  • [Motioning to the Keyblade Graveyard] 

    Master Xehanort : Behold. These lifeless keys used to be full of power. United with the hearts of their masters. On this barren soil, Keyblades of Light and Dark were locked in combat as a great Keyblade War raged!

  • Master Xehanort : [to Terra]  It is your darkness that will be the ark that sustains me!

    [Possesses Terra, transforming him into the new Xehanort] 

  • [Terra stands alone in the Keyblade Graveyard. Aqua approaches him] 

    Aqua : I was told the Master was struck down.

    Terra : Yes, that's right. I was stupid and helped Xehanort do it.

    [Aqua gasps] 

    Terra : The Master... he tried to hurt Ven. I only fought because I wanted to protect him. But I was tricked. Xehanort set the whole thing up. All so he could awaken the darkness inside me. You were right, Aqua, and so was the Master. I did need to be watched. I went astray, but no more.

    Aqua : What else is darkness but hate and rage? Xehanort is feeding the dark fires within you, making you fight. You'll go astray again. Tell me, how does that honour our Master's memory, Terra?

    [Ventus approaches them] 

    Ventus : Xehanort wants me and Vanitas to fight, and make some kind of X-Blade. But the Master said we can't let that happen, and he tried to destroy me for it.

    Aqua : X-Blade?

    Ventus : I still don't know exactly what it is, but it scares me to death, even just the thought of it.

    Terra : Relax, Ven. We're here and we're going to take care of you.

    Ventus : I may have to fight Vanitas after all. If I do, guys, I want you to...

    Terra : The three of us can never be torn apart, right? I'll always find a way.

    Ventus : I'm asking you... as a friend. Just... put an end to me.

    [Terra and Aqua gasp. From afar, they notice Master Xehanort and Vanitas approaching them until they stop] 

    Master Xehanort : Behold. These lifeless Keys used to be full of power. United with the hearts of their Masters. On this barren soil, Keyblades of light and darkness were locked in combat as a great Keyblade War raged. Countless Keyblade Wielders gave up their lives all in search of one ultimate Key. And it will soon belong to me.

    [He points to Ventus] 

    Master Xehanort : The X-Blade!

    [Terra, Aqua and Ventus summon their armour and attack] 

  • Terra : Help me understand, Master Xehanort. What is it that I failed to learn?

    Master Xehanort : You're fine as you are. Darkness cannot be destroyed. It can only be channelled.

  • Master Xehanort : What do you make of Ventus?

    Vanitas : Somebody's gotta break that loser in.

  • Master Xehanort : [to Terra]  See more worlds. Seek out the darkness that upsets the balance, and bring an end to him!

  • Master Xehanort : [to Ventus]  You're starting to realise. Now it can all be yours again if you only reach out and take it!

  • Master Xehanort : [to Terra]  Aqua and Ventus, their light shines to bright. It is only natural that they cast shadows on your heart.

  • Master Xehanort : Darkness rules your heart. It gives me control. Muscle and sinew that once obeyed you now rebels against you. How you can remain here at all confounds the mind.

    Terra : It's still my heart. You think you can just come in and take over? I'm not gonna sit by and let that happen.

    Master Xehanort : Hmph. Don't even entertain any notion of escaping me, boy. In the end, your heart will be engulfed by mine forever.

    Terra : Wrong. You're gonna get shown the door, old man.

    Master Xehanort : As I recall, you couldn't even handle your own darkness. How, then, will you triumph over mine?

    Terra : You'll find out soon enough.

    Master Xehanort : [Suddenly realising Terra's trick]  Oh, so that's how it is, is it? Someone else has set foot in your heart. Eraqus, you sly fox...

    Terra : I'm not afraid of what the darkness holds now. Even if you do wrest control of my heart from me, even if you cast me in the deepest, darkest abyss, you'll never sway me from the one cause that pushes me to keep on fighting. Whatever the cost, I'm ready to pay it.

    Master Xehanort : Brave words, to be sure. But I'm a patient man. We can take as much time as we need to settle this little property dispute. However, know this: You are just one of many roads that I might choose to take. Trust me. I made certain of that.
