Ya know, that is the only thing that really ticks me off about Kingdom Hearts: over half the fandom automatically labels Sora, Riku, and the other Square-original male protagonists as gay, when ABSOLUTELY NONE OF THEM ACTUALLY SHOW ANY SIGNS OF SUCH! I mean, it's obvious that Sora likes Kairi more than just a friend; Kairi has at least two games going for her (ESPECIALLY the ending of the first game; I would've thought that solidified her in the role of Sora's love interest.)
The annoying thing is, what the yaoi fangirls consider to be "evidence" of a gay pairing ACTUALLY STEMS FROM SORA'S NAIVETE! Sora has proven to be not exactly the sharpest tool on the shed (that's not to say, however, that he is just plain stupid; he's not), so he wouldn't understand what homosexuality really was if somebody speeled it out to him.
This argument could also be used against me, but I'm just saying that he's more likely to end up with Kairi than turn gay for his best friend WHO IS ALSO IN LOVE WITH KAIRI!
...Sorry, I kind of lost my cool there. Good work. This is funny.
According to WHO exactly? Because the only sources about Sora's potential origins I could find was that Disney wanted Donald Duck as the protagonist, while Square wanted Mickey Mouse (which I find ironic and hilarious), and Sora could've had a tail.
What you're saying doesn't sound like Square to me.
Hehe, I see what you did there.
But even still, my theory about the tail issue was that, after drawing Sora's original design, Square worried they'd be ripping off Dragon Ball with their original premise for a tailed protagonist. I guess they decided to go with the traditional "spikey-haired RPG protagonist" that Square had become accustomed to (and become rather infamous for).
