Ursula Debate Part 2
So…in the article in the last Ursula Debate…this was said:
In the Kingdom Hearts video game, Ursula appears as one of Maleficent’s co-conspirators, using the power of the Heartless to attack Atlantica and gain power. In this version of events the official walkthrough states that Ursula was King Triton’s fortuneteller before she was banished. Ursula is eventually defeated by Sora, Ariel, Donald Duck and Goofy. In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, she appears as a facsimile created from Sora’s memories. In Kingdom Hearts II, Ursula mysteriously returns through the powers of darkness and appears to Ariel, and recreates her film role. As the film’s storyline is retold in the game, Ursula does not recognize Sora and co., and Ariel makes no mention of her defeat in the original Kingdom Hearts. In fact, when Ursula arrives to make the deal with Ariel, the latter reacts as though she has seen Ursula for the first time. Sora, however, does note that Ursula “got what she deserved” in the first game. At the story’s climax, she is defeated when Eric hurls the trident straight through Ursula’s chest, destroying her seemingly once and for all.
I didn’t realize that they never questioned why Ursula was back in Kingdom Hearts 2, or that they ignored the fact all that happened in Kingdom Hearts 1 happened. I know Ariel didn’t find Prince Eric in KH1. They have her find him in KH2…so I guess I just overlooked the defeated in KH1 part in favor of the story line of “The Little Mermaid” finally being fufilled.
When I do play KH2 again, I’ll be looking at these scenes a bit more in depth.
