Kingdom Hearts: Terra, Aqua, and Ventus / Characters - TV Tropes
Kingdom Hearts 3 sounds like it is shaping up to be an epic One last question: Why did Sora fight Terra at the end of Final Mix +, was that just. To me, Aqua felt like the guardian to Terra and Ven. . like I said, Pathetic and that's the end of the matter so I won't argue about it anymore. Terra (Japanese: テラ, Hepburn: Tera) is a fictional character from Square Enix's video game The game's secret ending shows Terra's heart continuing to resist Xehanort, who still possesses his Following the release of the Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Nomura revealed a connection between them and the game's villain .
Terra's role from Birth by Sleep is reprised in Tomoko Tanemaki's light novels of the game. Nomura also confirmed that the Lingering Will was connected with Terra.
He also stated that his name, meaning "earth" from Latin, follows the "land" theme Riku represents, as well as connecting him with the other main characters' names from the series.
Ever since development of Birth by Sleep started, the staff already decided that the three stories would be told in separate scenarios, with Terra's story being the first one written. Nomura wrote Terra's conversation with Riku early on development, wishing to explain the reason for Riku's ability to use the Keyblade, and he requested the staff in charge to make it into the game.
The staff also wanted to emphasize the lack of coincidences in the series, leading to the characters' interaction between the three scenarios. Nomura recommended players to first play as Terra in Birth by Sleep in order to understand the story better. Terra's gameplay was also described by Nomura as "heavy" in comparison to Ventus's and Aqua's. Nomura expects that in future games, the connection between both of them would be expanded. The staff found Chikao's was a dry sort of voice, Akio's a deep, resonating sort of voice, and liked how Okiayu bore elements from both actors.
However, when considering Terra's weapon being a Keyblade in contrast to all the other Final Fantasy characters shown in previous Kingdom Hearts games, he thought he may not be Zack. Kondolojy from Cheat Code Central found there have been various speculations regarding the similarities between Terra and Zack, but thought it would not be strange considering the existence of Nobodies in the series.
VanOrd also pointed this out when Terra interacts with Disney characters, finding the latters' voice actors to be "uniformly excellent and absolutely comparable to the original source.

The Relationships of Kingdom Hearts
Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep. Square Enix, Disney Interactive Studios. The Land of Departure. However, only Aqua has shown the Mark of Mastery. There is really nothing left of their home.
They're on their own now.
The sheer depth of the remorse and sorrow Terra feels after he is suckered into contributing to the death of Master Eraqus and the destruction of their homeland. At the end of his story, the Lingering Will is left alone on an empty battlefield, having lost Xehanort, Ventus, Terra, and Aqua in the aftermath of the horrific battle. As he kneels in the dust, prepared to wait for as long as it takes, one thought is left in his mind.
One day, I will set this right. Cry at what happened to their friendship. Lea's wish to be "immortal", knowing how he went out.

Keeping that in mind, Days and the prologue of II just got even sadder. The Secret Reports in Days makes it even worse, driving it home how that dorky kid and his snarky best friend are effectively dead, and how much their relationship has deteriorated over the last ten years. Talking to Roxas and Xion always brings back memories of my human life, back when I was a kid.
It's a weird sensation. It's strange, but I'm content with just missing what's gone. I'm not the one who changed. What were you really after, Lea? We joined the Organization at the same time, and formulated our plan. At this point, it's just an idle fantasy. It's even more tragic as of KH3D: The end of all three stories.
If you managed not to cry at Terra's story The entire latter half of Birth By Sleep. Sora is driven to tears in-game, and he doesn't even know why. The tearjerker is simply that powerful. During the credits, Mickey Mouse is so devastated over the fate of the three protagonists, he hands over both his starshard and his keyblade to Yen Sid.
As he turns to leave, Yen Sid gives him back the Keyblade.Kingdom Hearts Birth by sleep PS4: Aqua Vs Terra-Xehanort
Between Yen Sid not approving of Mickey's training before, the events of the game, and what's to come, it was quite a gut punch. Gets worse when you see the ending and realize that all the time she spent in the Realm of Darkness actually did make her a bit until her friends' keyblades restored her hope. When she sacrifices herself to save Terra, and those three words she says with a smile: I won't make it back as soon as I thought.
But I promise I'll be there one day to wake you up. So then, if something happens, and Riku's about to get lost That's your job, Sora, and I'm counting on you to do it, okay? The sad thing is that Sora couldn't keep his promise: In A Fragmentary Passage, during his conversation with Aqua he tells her all he can see is absolute darkness but again, mitigated somewhat by his greatly improved Fighting from the Inside. When Xehanort takes over his body, Terra's mind reanimates his discarded armor as the Lingering Will.
A lighter example than most, but still applies.
Terra is extremely trusting of others, even when they are Obviously Evilwhich causes him to take some questionable actions. He is also obsessed with power—power to protect his friends, but this single-minded motivation allows the darkness to easily fester within him and makes him more ruthless than the other protagonists. Not holding back results in him killing his father figure Eraqus, and eventually he is consumed with such hatred for Xehanort that the Lingering Will outright attacks Sora with full strength over a momentary misunderstanding.
A vaguely flame-like, pitch-black one whenever he taps into the power of darkness. Ultima Cannon, Terra's Signature Move and ultimate Shotlock, allows him to morph his Keyblade into a giant cannon to fire upon his foes.
The right timing causes the bullets to become explosive. His signature Keyblade, Ends of the Earth, is longer than Sora is tall.

Altough he isn't Ven's actual brother, their relationship is more or less this in a nutshell. Terra is protective of Ven no matter what happen. This develops into Knight Templar Big Brother behavior by the end of the game in regards to everyone seeming to want to end Ven's existence, whether they were good people or bad people. Terra displays most things that would make him a good Keyblade Master, such as strong beliefs and great strength and skill, but the darkness in his heart causes him to lose that chance.
It only goes downhill from that moment. Terra, who has been overly-conscious and quite a bit afraid by the darkness in his own heart, had quite a bit of respect for Master Xehanort, who assumed a guiding role in regards to channeling the darkness towards something good. Sadly, his respect for the old master turned entirely into rage and hatred when Xehanort manipulated him into fighting his father-figure Eraqus, murdering said father figure, and revealing himself to have been screwing with everyone Terra knows for the sake of his evil plan.
In fact, part of Xehanort's plan was to purposely set up this trope to maximize Terra's hatred and send his darkness into overdrive, giving the old man the chance to take that younger body for himself. When his mind reanimates his armor into the Lingering Will, it hands Xehanort his ass, and then years later proves to be one of the most insanely difficult bosses the series has ever seen. He has a strange tendency to shout "Unversed!
Cast from Hit Points: His "Sacrifice" move drains his HP for an extra-powerful attack. Red-orange to Aqua's blue-purple and Ven's green. Expressed most prominently through their Wayfinders, though their outfits also play a part. Terra's story is a darker version of this than usual. He comes off in a lot of ways as a young man who wants to be seen as an adult but also still desires validation from his "father," Eraqus.
Terra's outrage at the revelation that Eraqus expects him to fall to darkness and Aqua is supposed to be keeping an eye on him resembles him being angry they are treating him like a child. Xehanort manipulates him by flattering him and calling him a Keyblade Master, i. Terra usually has quite a lot of determination despite the situation, yet has little self-confidence due to his use of darkness. However, once Terra reaches a certain point he snaps and becomes almost unstoppable.
This is shown to excellent effect with both Lingering Will fights. This is a man whose will is so strong it can function on its own. While largely stoic, Terra goes through a lot of hidden emotional turmoil in his journey.
Not that it stops him from smacking Unversed. Kingdom Hearts II features an unknown soldier in full armor as a Bonus Bosswho murmurs about his friends before fighting. All there really is to establish his character is his theme, "Rage Awakened," which captures his sense of injustice and establishes a connection to Big Bad Xehanort by reprising one of his Leitmotifs. It isn't until Birth By Sleep until we learn this figure is Terra.
Everything's Better with Samurai: Well, do you have a better explanation for the hakama? He wants power to protect his friends from any harm that might befall them.
In a series where Ambition Is Evilhe's doomed. Terra never really seems to pick up the concept of "someone arguing in bad faith". He never picks up on any sort of clue that Xehanort's playing him like a cheap kazoo.
Fighting from the Inside: It's what lets Aqua overcome his Xehanort-possessed body when she joins him in his Battle in the Center of the Mind. Continues to fight in 0. Terra is a girl's name in the West, and Square Enix knows that. Terra really doesn't do well at spotting the Obviously Evil bad guys he meets and trusts them to help him. Lampshaded by Peter Pan if you talk to him in Neverland after finishing the storyline there. I'd watch out if I were you.
