After coming through the portal in the computer system room in ~ the Old Mansion in Twilight Town, Sora, his companions and also the King go into a strange, dark people whose walls and also streets room pure white under the stare of the revered heart-shaped moon, the one and only Kingdom Hearts. There is no hesitation, they decide that they are going to find a way to acquire to the castle that looms over head - The lock That never ever Was - to rescue the kidnapped Kairi that is in the dungeon, according to the deceased Axel.

You are watching: The land that never was kh2

They traverse with the Alley to Between and also Fragment Crossing, plowing with the small fry that obstructs their path, before they concerned a substantial clearing conquered by a vast skyscraper placed by a blank television display - this is the well known Memory\"s Skyscraper. ~ a good look in ~ the looming Kingdom Hearts, Sora sets off again with his pals in tow, yet not before Donald and also Goofy are accosted by 2 Samurai Nobodies, who room seemingly under the regulate of a particular someone - a certain hooded someone who appears from a dark portal. This is a an effective entity, one that wields the Oblivion and Oathkeeper Keyblades and clashes with Sora in a Station-of-Awakening-like place, to wherein he has actually transported them both. It is none various other than the nobody locked within Sora\"s heart, Roxas, reawakened through Axel\"s tragic death.

However, Sora walk not recognize this info yet, and desperately wishes that the figure is Riku, the sole factor he has embarked upon this second journey - however callously, Roxas remarks that has defeated Riku once, a statement the brings torment to Sora. Yet his sadness is nothing contrasted to Roxas, whose fury has reawakened him only to inquiry Sora\"s standing as a Keyblade wielder - however the just thing Sora can do is protect himself from the angry onslaught of attacks from Roxas before he lastly cuts that down, reflecting Roxas why he was chosen. This in turn permits Roxas to find peace that then departs, informing Sora \"You make a good other.\"

Once again Sora is back at Memory\"s Skyscraper with his pals, that say the they have no idea about what has just transpired various other than the reality that Sora disappeared right prior to their eyes after i m sorry they were left come fight part Nobodies. But what really pertains to Sora is the reality that Roxas kept that he beat Riku, deeply worrying that - however Donald thinks nobody might defeat Riku and also Goofy says that if the figure wore an organization XIII cloak, that must have been component of the elite team of Nobodies and also therefore trying come trick Sora, the reason - Donald and also Goofy firmly insist - why no of the other two observed him. Yet even so, this isn\"t the real concern at hand; they must rescue Kairi.

After more paltry Heartless battles, they discover themselves at the lip of the city - The Brink that Despair - the exists under the great, looming, floating castle the is the headquarters of company XIII. While they ponder just how to overcome the threshold, Kairi and also Pluto are visited by an unforeseen heroine - Naminé - that helps lock escape via dark portal. In ~ the touch of your hands - a prize of trust and also friendship - the Keyblade shows up before Sora and shows him exactly how to go into the castle: by permitting it to unlock a miracle path. After ~ this is done, everyone and also the King go into the castle.

As soon as they get in enemy territory they are greeted through a feisty group of Nobodies. While they take care of these fellows, Naminé, Kairi and also Pluto are well ~ above their way to escaping the huge castle yet are waylaid by Saïx and some of his loyal Berserker Nobodies - and also fortunately, they are rescued by yet one more cloaked figure, this one hold a Keyblade the is the method to Dawn. Of food it is Riku, as declared by Naminé, a fact that shocks Kairi come say the least. But Riku has actually bigger problems, one the is named Saïx and also another one called killing him. That is around to seek Saïx ~ Saïx teleports away, but he is stopped by Kairi who is no hope to see him after ~ so long of gift without him. However when she removes his hood, she look at what the doesn\"t desire her come see: Ansem, the type that he take it on long back during his battle with Roxas come detain him.

Meanwhile, Sora and co. Take treatment of some an effective Nobodies in Nothing\"s Call, the entry ar of the castle and also do the same during the elevator journey of Crooked Ascension, before they with Twilight\"s watch for a pit stop. It turns out that this is substantially needed together they proceed to the hall of north Melodies wherein they are stopped by Saïx who does what the does finest - exacerbates the instance by informing Sora that Kairi no longer has actually need of Sora now she has actually \"her girlfriend from the darkness\" (this gift Riku), and then add to that since Sora has actually done together a swell task of defeating Heartless and sending their remains to Kingdom Hearts, the company only demands one last little bit of help, and just prefer that, Saïx orders a literal military of Heartless to assault Sora and also pals through the idea that Sora will destroy them. That course, the gang is totally outnumbered yet Riku and Kairi - currently with a Keyblade indigenous Riku - rush to aid them v the destruction of the Heartless ~ above the top floor that the Hall, but the point that signals Saïx\"s departure is an unexpected appearance indigenous Maleficent and also her goofy sidekick, Pete.

Meanwhile, the King forges ahead and after doing away through a few Nobodies and also Heartless follow me Naught\"s Skyway he comes throughout a collapse DiZ and a strange machine, both the whom space under attack. ~ rescuing him, DiZ clears his bandages and also reveals his true identification - Ansem the Wise, old king that Radiant Garden. Mickey, quite than gift angry, is more annoyed, wishing Ansem had actually consulted him earlier prior to getting right into such a mess v the Organization, but due to the fact that Xehanort - the human type of Xemnas - to be his apprentice, that is his burden to bear. But that isn\"t the complete reason behind his tasks with Riku and also Roxas and also Sora; he to be consumed by concepts of revenge, come get back at his apprentices that stole whatever that mattered to him - namely, his research study and more importantly, his pride. That goes on come talk around Riku and how he assisted Ansem the wise after Riku left the King to address the remnants that Xehanort\"s Heartless the were lingering in his heart and that that is come blame because that Riku\"s existing appearance, exactly how he urged him to take it on the powers of darkness to detain Roxas to reawaken Sora. Currently that Ansem the wise realizes the damages he has actually caused come Riku and to Roxas because that his own an individual gain, he assures that he will certainly make amends, and also then with Mickey in tow, the carries the device - one the Ansem the Wise hopes to use to encode Kingdom Hearts into data - come a point out on Naught\"s technique to put these amends right into effect.

While this conversation is walking on, Sora, his two companions and also Riku and also Kairi have actually been surrounding by Heartless and also the result looks bleak; yet then a shower head of pink bullets destroys the fiends and though they have actually been conserved from gift gobbled up, the savior is by no means good news; that is none various other than the Organization\"s Number II, the verbose laid-back Freeshooter who has no qualms around teasing his prey with riddles and smirks, the well known Xigbar. And tease he does; he calls Sora \"Roxas\", a name that is unfamiliar to the Keyblader, in turn confusing him. Yet does Xigbar care? not really, as he phone call Sora \"not fifty percent the hero the rather were\" - a recommendation to Terra, Aqua and also Ven - despite having \"put company XIII in a pickle\", and with the proceeds come shoot the life light the end of them in a feisty battle that yes, really tests Sora\"s strengths and limits.

However, Sora and also friends prevail together heroes when again and Xigbar perishes, yet not prior to he laughs turn off Sora\"s question around Roxas\" identity. Currently with that gone, the fist moves back to Kairi that is on the upper level that the Hall, fighting Heartless v Riku, though this critical person\"s identification is unknown to Sora at the moment. To gain to her, lock go with Naught\"s Skyway, at which suggest Kingdom understanding is soaking up prefer a sponge the Heartless being destroyed, empowering it and transforming it right into the perfect weapon of power for Xemnas who is atop the Altar that Naught wax poetic around it as usual.

In the meantime, Sora and co. Space on the top floor that the hall of empty Melodies where Sora is finally reunited through Kairi, an emotional exchange the prompts Riku - tho in Xehanort\"s Heartless\" type - to leave, however not prior to Kairi stop him, obtaining Sora to hold his hand to check out that it yes, really is Riku. This in turn sets Sora off on a bout that tears, lastly happy the he has discovered his lengthy lost friend, and then everyone - Sora, Riku, Kairi, Donald and Goofy - declare the they will go and meet the King to finally end Xemnas\" dominion of terror. Together they pass right into Proof that Existence, a location where portals to the personal realms the the Nobodies of company XIII exist, Ansem the wise activates his device and fires a beam in ~ Kingdom Hearts, placing his encryption plan into effect.

In proof of visibility there room two portals which room still active, namely those of Saïx and also Luxord. The very first portal they enter is that of Luxord, which takes them come Havoc\"s divide from whereby they have the right to see the machine\"s beam aimed in ~ Kingdom Hearts, who properties Riku explains. Once they are about to turn back, yet one more member of organization XIII procedures out that a portal, and it is none various other than the wily handsome devil, Luxord. The sweeps everyone but Sora away, forcing Sora right into a timed fight with the king of cards, i m sorry Sora wins, regardless of Luxord being a master gambler. After ~ Luxord eludes and also angers Sora through calling that \"Roxas\", Sora wins back his friends before they return to Proof of Existence.

Next they go into Saïx\"s lair, Addled Impasse, wherein they discover the Berserker mulling over existing affairs under the moon. The calls Sora \"Roxas\", currently a tiresome thing, before he clashes into battle with the original trio. As solid as the is - especially during his lunar-fuelled Berserk state - that meets his end at your hands. After that fight is done, Sora finally gets to ask the question Xigbar didn\"t answer: why anyone calls the Roxas. Riku explains simply that it is since Roxas is his no one who currently resides in Sora\"s heart, one who was used by Xemnas because that his Keyblade-wielding skills. With this revelation passed, they leave.

Past proof of visibility is Naught\"s approach where castle finally discover Ansem the Wise and also the King and the machine which is encoding Kingdom Hearts. But it seems Ansem the way finds the irony of the whole thing funny together he says that hearts room incalculable because it surpasses any type of system; his newfound theory is showed by his malfunctioning device which is around to self-destruct, native which the King need to run to conserve himself. And as if matters couldn\"t get any type of worse, Xemnas mirrors his face. He laughs at Ansem the Wise however Ansem the Wise just shakes it turn off in agreement; he was a silly to tutor Xehanort, an action which collection everything in motion, due to the fact that the just thing Xemnas desires is his own world over which he has sovereign. But as Ansem the wise famously says, a people of Xemnas\" would just be an empire of ignorance, and with that, the an equipment explodes, killing Ansem the Wise. In the after-effects of that blinding light, it nearly destroys Kingdom Hearts, creating a shower of caught hearts and releasing them ago into the world, birthing a titanic new wave of Heartless. It likewise restores Riku earlier to himself.

Now the only thing left to perform is ruin Xemnas, therefore they relocate onto Ruin and also Creation\"s passage while taking care of stray Nobodies; yet when they go to exit, they watch thousands upon hundreds of Heartless swarming in through the windows. This yes, really looks favor the finish for them, however lo and behold, Maleficent autumn in through Pete, producing a diversion because that the team of do-gooders - not that she\"ll ever before live the down, mind. The gang runs off to the Altar of Naught because that a confrontation v Xemnas, who is deep \"upset\" at his destroyed Kingdom Hearts. ~ a spiel about the nature the light, darkness and nothingness, Xemnas finally does battle with Sora at Memory\"s Contortion, a contorted variation of Memory\"s Skyscraper.

Xemnas is an effective with his light sabers but Sora proves too much for him. Finally, once the end of Xemnas might just have passed, they check out him in floating before Kingdom Hearts back at the Altar, requesting that power. Unfortunately, it grants him his request and also now they have to kill this empowered variation of that which is now inside Kingdom Hearts. They go into it v a door come Kingdom Hearts, provided by the desire to avoid Xemnas through the various other worlds, and set off for round number two through the crazed Superior.

Once inside they view what is at some point Xemnas\" best world, a dark version of the Dark City of The civilization That never ever Was, finish with its own Memory\"s Skyscraper and also mechanical paris dragon - atop which is Xemnas himself, spouting turn off again around hearts being weak. Like any madman wanting to ideal his enemy, Xemnas throw a building at the gang and also in the plea come escape Sora, Riku, Donald and Goofy space trapped inside. But these are strong warriors and also even skyscrapers prove no match for your strength, i beg your pardon they overcome to with the mechanically dragon\"s cylinders, 2 monstrous initiatives whose blasts can obliterate them. However, they destroy the cylinders by throwing stray Nobodies into them, and then proceed further.

Their next task is to protect against the energy core, i beg your pardon isn\"t hard also after a couple of Nobody interventions. When this is defeated, they move onto another section, this time Xemnas himself in a kingly knight kind that merely radiates power, sit on his throne v a crown atop his head. He has actually the powers of all his once-were no one underlings in ~ his disposal, a colossal stamin that Sora should overcome. When he does, Xemnas is dethroned and is no more than peasant prior to the currently reunited group atop the Altar, and also as normal he wants an ext power, but Sora look at strikes a note within the - as much as that is possible for a nobody - and also Xemnas admits somewhat sadly the he can not remember what it is favor to feel, before he fades away right into nothing.

The castle starts come tremble, a authorize that castle must obtain out, yet when Riku tries to summon a dark portal because that them, it doesn\"t work; he isn\"t a component of the dark realm anymore. But thankfully, a ghostly Naminé appears and opens a portal, with which Pluto, the King, Donald and Goofy escape, before Naminé turns to Sora and also from Sora emerges a ghostly Roxas. Finally, they are together again just as lock promised and will be every day as lengthy as Sora and also Kairi space together. After ~ they go back to their others\" bodies, Kairi actions through the portal; Sora and also Riku are about to follow suit when the portal disappears. Completely unaware the what is walking on, Sora and also Riku space taken aback once the mechanical dragon from before breaks complimentary of a prison some miles away and starts heading toward them prior to it collides with the Altar, knocking lock off, but fortunately Riku clues a flying maker which he and also Sora jump onto. Together the dragon paris away to cause havoc, Riku cd driver the device after it through Sora in ~ his side, ready to to win the beast down.

After grinding the dragon\"s gears to a halt, they need to deal yet again with Xemnas, that is earlier in his king type inside the dragon, only this time he supplies buildings and also lasers and also the affinities of his underlings, making him quite a little bit more complicated to beat, but yet again they take it him down. However, it would be foolish come think Xemnas would certainly go under so easily; ~ the dust of this penultimate calamity clears, Sora and Riku finds themselves in a realm of Nothingness v Xemnas. After a speech around Nothingness being eternal, Xemnas sets out on his critical fight, one that will certainly test Sora and Riku every little thing they have learned so far and also will possibly push them also far.

But alas, they perform away v him, and this time he yes, really does die, displayed by a genuine disappearance into nothing. However don\"t think it ends there; thousands of lesser Nobodies surround the two boys and in a bid to conserve them, Riku exerts the last of his power, damaging every last among them. Clearly this pipeline him weakened, yet they both look for an leave together - which come in the type of a bright irradiate enveloping them and dropping them turn off at the Dark Meridian deep inside the Dark Realm, wherein they sit by the water\"s edge and ponder your positions in life. Not lengthy after this, Riku feels something struggle his leg and finds a glass bottle through a post inside it and hands it come Sora. The is the keep in mind Kairi wrote.

They pass through and also fall v the sky right into the ocean, and also once they reach shore, they discover all your friends wait for them: Kairi, the King, Donald and also Goofy. Below is the much-awaited heartwarming reunion and also Sora discover Kairi\"s great luck charm, before Roxas and also Naminé appear together once more for the critical time.
