A friend of mine pointed out that Kairi is a useless character and Kingdom Hearts is better off without her if she disappears somehow or went to another world. She said she is a come-save-me character in KH1 and KH2 which is true but it wasn't really her fault. My friend likes Namine but if I remember correctly she was in the same position in Chain of Memories.
She also pointed out Kairi has about 30 minutes or less worth of screen time while the others have hours worth of screen time all together in the games(does it even matter?).
In KH2 she gets a keyblade and wants to help Sora fight and not sit back and wait for Sora but my friend still calls her useless.
If Kairi wanted to try out for the Keyblade master test or want to try out using magic would she be useless? Or is Kairi better off being the person to wait for Sora?

I thought of this sometime ago and I think that Kairi should go into battle such as how Aqua is. I have to agree with the OP for her being mario-princess peach kind of role. I want her in action! Like Riku, Sora, and Kairi. Kairi being the support player that does heals and all kind of buffs.

In other words you want her to still be useless. As for her being like Aqua, she can't be like that. Aqua has years of training in how to actually use a keyblade. Kairi hasn't done anything significant combat-related at any point in the story. It's not that it's a bad thing though. Seeing her forced into combat would just put her in the "Mary Sue" spot and her character is bad enough as it is right now.

Kairi's a Princess of Heart...she hasn't really done much for the story outside of Kingdom Hearts 1 and in KH2 she was just a damsel in distress and nothing more. I'm sure Nomura might have something in mind for her later but just not now. >>

Kairi is a damsel in distress. Her character is only for the advancement of the story.
She should be more like Aqua!
Kairi isn't ready for the Mark of Mastery Exam anyway.

My thoughts exactly.


I think she's just another one of those "Aerith" characters that's just there to support the main characters.

Even still, couldn't she be in some use like what if they needed another princess because another one died? Couldn't she be the last resort in saving the world from destruction. I think she could be good in some ways.

If you ask me, the reason why kairi got her keyblade in KH2 was so they could begin to build her character to be more like Aqua. I feel it's safe to assume kari will be getting more action in future games.

She would be better off sitting in a castle acting as one of the seven pre light/ princess. In aqua case it's different because she was already using the key blade and training kairi to boost her chances up would mostly be silly.

Well Kairi is similar to Aqua.

Aqua really has nothing to do with the story until the end.

She is a useless character and doesn't have any special abilities. What can she do for kingdom hearts? but only kill sora?

Why don't you read some of Nomura's interviews about Kairi and see if she was really put in the game to be recognized as useless.

It'd be nice to see Kairi do something for once in her life.

No she isn't, remember her in kh1 the scene with her and her grandmother and birth by sleep, aqua and kairi meet with faith? I'm not giving hints but you should know.

i think she could or she maybe really useless in my opinion. maybe nomura wanted her to be useless or didn't really want to give her just a role yet. maybe in the upcoming kh3 she will.
