Kingdom Hearts III: The Heart's Greatest Weapon is the first half of a two-part Kingdom Hearts fan fiction written by "Heroes1202" of FanFiction.net. It is set after Kingdom Hearts II and begins on Destiny Islands after Sora, Kairi and Riku reunite and return home. The story continues during it's second half, called Eternal Light.
Chapters 1 - 4: The Legend on Destiny IslandsEdit
In the Realm of Darkness, a mysterious armored figure learns from a Heartless of the return of the Keyblade. He deides to meet this Keyblader personally. Meanwhile, on the Destiny Islands, Sora and Kairi are relaxing on the beach when Riku appears and reminds them that they are supposed to go investigate another island where a mysterious crash occured years ago. As they leave, Roxas and Namine briefly appear. As they arrive on the island, Kairi finds herself having problems summoning her Keyblade, leaving Sora and Riku with the honors of cutting through the thick foliage. They soon discover the source of the crash: an ancient Gummi Ship. They're soon attacked by Heartless, but are rescued by Donald and Goofy. They learn that they're here to find Goofy's son Max, who was investigating an S.O.S signal. Soon enough, Max appears, being chased by the Dark Knight. Upon seeing Sora, the Knight challenges him to a fight, but is knocked away by a strange light emanating from the ship. They find the source to be Tinkerbell, who leads them to a massive temple. After Kairi inadvertently activates a strange mechanism, they go inside to investigate.
Inside the temple, the group finds multiple paintings of Keybladers on the walls, as well as statues of past Keybladers. After checking out one of a beautiful maiden, Sora is startled to find one of himself. Next to his, they find statues of Riku, Kairi, Mickey, and Roxas. The last one apparently makes the real Roxas appear, as well as Namine. Soon after, a wall beside Sora's statue opens, revealing a chamber containing Ventus' Keyblade. Hearing a voice within, Sora pulls out the sword, unleashing a snake-like darkness which captures Kairi and disperses into several far more vicious Heartless. As Sora attempts to fight, Ven's Keyblade unleashes his spirit, which helps Sora kill the Heartless. After another battle with a Heartless who takes the form of Lexeaus, they free Kairi and meet Michael, the temple's guardian who instantly recognizes Sora as a Keyblader. They learn that the temple is the Sanctuary of Heart, a haven for Keybalders and contains the Keyblades of every wielder who ever lived.
As they learn more of the temple, they learn that it is also the final resting of deceased Keyblader souls. Preventing said souls from being consumed by darkness and bringing them here is Michael's job and the statues are the work of Tinkerbell. Sora also learns that the voice he hears in the Awakening is Michael's. Michael then asks for a small favor: to awaken the souls of Terra and Aqua, who reside here. This is a task that can only be done by Riku and Kairi, who accept. As they enter their own Awakenings, the temple is attacked by the Knight and a massive snake-like Heartless. Though they hold their own, the group soon starts having trouble. Luckily, Riku and Kairi finish their Awakening and, equipped with Terra and Aqua's souls, drive off the Knight and the Heartless. However, Michael soon discovers that the Keybladers are gone.
They figure that the Knight did this and the Heartless was just a diversion. They also learn that the Dark Knight was apparently the first ever Keyblader and therefore, the first to fall to darkness, back when all Heartless were like the one they just fought before being locked away by Keybladers and later revived by Xehanort. They learn that with the Keyblader souls, the Knight could become all powerful and plunge the worlds into darkness. They decide to retrieve the souls and bring them back. Soon after, King Mickey appears and announces that in order to defeat the Knight, Sora will need to bring together a group of friends from across the worlds to aid him. With this goal in mind, they leave the Destiny Islands (Roxas, Namine and Ven disappearing upon exiting the temple) and head to Twilight Town.
Once there, they go looking for Hayner's gang, but instead meet Seifer and his gang. A pontential fight between Seifer and Sora is interrupted by Hayner and crew. Sora learns that the town has been hearing some strange noises at night. An investigation leads to the source: Pete.
Chapter 5: Twilight Town ChaosEdit
Back at the Secret Place, a bawling Pete reveals what happened after they saw him and Maleficent last time (though he is originally lying to keep Maleficent's whereabouts a secret). A huge piece of rubble from the Castle That Never Was fell on her and several Heartless, apparently killing all, but not before she sent him here. Since he hasn't seen Maleficent since, he assumes she's dead. Feeling bad for him and deciding to give him a second chance, Mickey lets him join them, despite Donald and Goofy's protestations. After everyone is almost crushed by the giant cat's bear hugs, Sora explains the situation not just to Pete, but to the Twilight Town gangs. Though Seifer doesn't believe him, Hayner, Pence, and Olette do and decide to join. Just as Seifer demands proof, a Heartless similar to the Guard Armor called Crushor attacks the Sandlot. While Sora's group and Pete battle the Heartless, the others stay back. When the Knight is revealed to be behind the Heartless, Seifer joins in, wielding a broken pipe. However, he is soon badly injured, but his love for his town and his friends allows him a weapon, Final Fantasy VIII Seifer's Gunblade. With this, Seifer helps Sora kill the Heartless while the Knight flees. Deciding to help, Seifer and Pete join the group while Hayner's gang stays behind.
Chapters 6 - 7: Radiant Gardens AwaitEdit
After leaving Twilight Town, the King's ship soon comes within sight of Radiant Garden. Unfortunately, a suprise attack by Heartless ships, coupled with a complete lack of weapons on Mickey's ship results in them risking a crash landing that proves successful. Upon arriving in town, they are overjoyed to see the large amount of progress made already, and soon find Scrooge, who's ice cream business is booming. Though he is weary of Pete at first, Mickey explains everything. Soon after they meet up with Yuffie, just in time for a massive Heartless attack. Luckily, Leon and Cloud show up and slay them all. They learn that the Commitee's been having a lot of problems with Heartless atacks lately, and decide to learn more at their base. As the group heads off, Leon and Seifer see each other and take an instant dislike.
At the base, Sora's group meets up with Cid, Aerith, the Gullwings, and a new member, Rinoa.
