Talk:Kingdom Hearts (series)/Timeline
this is from what i understand to be the correct timeline
the main reason i posted it was so that it can be improved bit by bit to be more accurate
remove it if you want, i dont mind...
i just thought it would be nice to have a timeline of events on this site all in one place
Well, I'm doing my part to clean up this mess. I'll see if I can rewrite some parts so it doesn't get repetitive and incorrectly written. User:JudgmentDay95 18:37 23 July 2009 (UTC)
Doesn't 358/2 days' event happen BEFORE CoM? - Sencilia 09:58, September 22, 2009 (UTC)
- Per the argument I've put forth at Heartless, I don't believe the Ansem Reports can be taken as absolute truth. Both writers have known reputations for dishonesty. To an extent, a similar matter goes with Jiminy's Journal, as there is ample evidence within the journal that he is explaining the information he has, and that it may not be right. (See the changing articles on Riku/Ansem in KH2 for an example) I would suggest that if we cover any "Pre-game" stuff here, that it is either straight from Nomura or from cutscenes, and that anything that we have to take on a character's say-so is explicitly explained to be unconfirmed.Glorious CHAOS! 20:47, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
Jkls39 (talk) 13:18, 7 September 2012 (UTC) Can we just be a team and help improve this page better? We need teamwork and cooperation. If anyone's willing to help me out, please let me know. Let's make this a better page for other users to see. I'm actually willing to help but I also need someone to help me out. I can't do this alone. :)
 Separation by Game Really Necessary?
I know that I, for one, came to this page just so I could get a clear idea of how the games all merge together. I mean, I wanted to see what the story itself was, not the individual story of each game. It's a bit confusing, isn't it? It was pretty straightforward until 358/2 Days, which threw the article's order out of whack.
So I suggest that, instead of separating by games, separate events by when they occurred.
That would fix any problems with 358/2 Days technically occurring before and during KH1 and Chain of Memories, right? And it would provide a clear transition between events taking place within the context of different games.
SavageLarxene011 21:04, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
- Agreed. This page should also have specific day numbers for the events of Days, CoM, and KHII, and should be more detailed time wise in the pre-game (we know that Maleficent took the world of Hollow Bastion 9 years before KH1).Glorious CHAOS! 21:39, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
The form of the info on the article was just too riddled with errors to have it up in mainspace. It's too much harm for too little gain. It has been moved here, and it needs to be organized and researched, with times, citations, and Template:Storylink tags.
I would suggest we start with the events of KH1 (using the script and scenes as a reference), and then leave the pre-game type stuff for last - anything which we don't actually see should be amassed as notes from the Ansem Reports, Secret Reports, Jiminy Memo, and any script-claims and then put together.Glorious CHAOS! 21:50, October 30, 2009 (UTC)
- Absolutely no events listed that are not specifically mentioned or observed as happening at that point. For example, we have no way of knowing yet that Maleficent wasn't always allied with Oogie Boogie and them, so don't say "At this point, Maleficent allies with the others." If you are not sure in what order it happened, only speak of it as something like "Maleficent meets with the members of her alliance, which she has so far gathered. Any complications arising from this should be ironed out on the talk page before adding those notes to the main article.
- Anything that is not directly observed within the course of the games needs to have a citation to a character's script, and needs to say "According to x" at the beginning of the note.
- Don't organize by game. Organize chronologically, though you can have little notes saying "The plot of Kingdom Hearts II begins here" or something.
- Any observed events should use the storylink template.
- Any flashbacks should be in their correct area, but should still use the storylink template indicating in which game they were first observed.
- Absolutely no un-canon info, such as Vcast, the manga(*), or the secret movies. (* Depending on discussion, it is possible we may insert manga-only events once the first draft of this is done)
- Where possible, dates should be specified. We can pinpoint virtually any event between Sora using the KoPH and awakening in Twilight Town, and we also know general dates for the pre-game section.

 Days in Days
- Every day with any storyline on it. Missions with story especially. If stuff needs to be trimmed after that, then we can deal with it then.Glorious CHAOS! 05:07, January 14, 2010 (UTC)
Out of sheer boredom, i actually did construct a timeline lining up the events of 358 days, and COM rikus and soras stories, it details events that only MUST have occured in chronological order. i can post it if anyone would like. it basically lines everything up the way birth by sleep does it, that is, by character and by time it occurs, so basically its a little easier to eyeball, and it follows all the criteria in the above list. yoshiyuki17 11/17/10
- Yes, I think we all would like to see this. --ShardofTruth 22:53, November 18, 2010 (UTC)
- All plots in all worlds, using the FM versions as the final canonicity, should be covered, though we might need to compress some of the sidequests with something like "Sora revisits the worlds, preparing for his final battle," -- stuff like Kurt Zisa and the Hades Cup are canon to the storyline, but are pretty much undateable with any kind of precision.22.214.171.124 14:13, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
 Deep Jungle Argument: Cannon or Not?
- Sorry. I'm just trying to help finish a page. No need to be a wuss. UxieLover1994 15:09, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
- Deep Jungle is not at all non-canon, and ranking the worlds by "general impact" really doesn't matter. Everything needs to be on the timeline.126.96.36.199 15:19, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
- It was withdrawn from the cannon following the pulling of the Tarzan franchice prior to 2004. It's not even in the Manga, and some of us agree it's no longer cannon. If we are going to argue on this, let's put it in a seperet forum. UxieLover1994 15:25, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
- (Deep Jungle was never a cannon...)(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ I AM KING OF THE SHOOPUFS! 19:33, 20 July 2011 (EDT)
- Kryten, maybe we better take this seriously. No time for jokes.
- It was (and will be) only cannon to the first game's story (yes, it's cannon for KH1, but only for KH1), but not the overal cannon. When Jafar mentioned that Sora found a Keyhole in one of the dreams Roxas experianced, the shown Keyhole was in Agrabah. But the only way for Deep Jungle to return is for Disney to pay at least £100 Billion (estimated). (I'm suprised they even let that world's Keyblade be in RE:Coded without a lawsuit happening...) UxieLover1994 02:17, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
Omitting a cutscene is not the same thing as retconning. Otherwise they would have chose a world about as early as Deep Jungle was. Unless there is an obvious indication that the events at Deep Jungle never happened, it remains canon. --Neumannz, The Dark Falcon 03:10, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
- I'll stop picking on it once you take the hint and learn how to spell the word.
- Canonicity has nothing to do with "license to have the setting reappear in future works".
- The EWB estate owns the title, the characters specifically from the original work, and probably any setting overtly based on Tarzan. The Jungle King is a completely original thing that SE made, and EWB has no claim on it. It's ludicrous to claim that they could have been sued "£100 Billion" for putting it in Re:coded.
- As I understand it, SE would still be perfectly able to reference that Sora went to "Deep Jungle", and use broad strokes to summarize what happened there. They just can't depict the actual scenes (as they would be based on copyrighted work) or use EWB-Tarzan-based names. So, there's nothing forbidding it from ever being mentioned again.
- All quests and sidequests remain canon until explicitly said by SE to be otherwise. Even the Mirage Arena battles are canon -- Nomura's misinterpreted line actually means that he designed the two Master bosses as Replica Data in order to avoid them causing a plot hole. Every time someone says "this obviously isn't canon, it's a side quest", later games prove them wrong, so how about we stay with the reliable view of "if it's published in the games, it's canon until proven otherwise"?(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ I AM KING OF THE SHOOPUFS! 11:00, 21 July 2011 (EDT)
- I understand. I still think that Deep Jungle is no longer canon (there; I've spelled it correctly). I just wish we can send e-mails to gather infomation on the canon for everything.
First off, why is this page still incomplete?
Secondly, do we write a gist of the story in point form, do we write a short paragraph for each story, or what? Until and unless I know how this page is going to be structured, this page is going to remain under construction for the rest of the year. TamboursNéant Ensemble ! 11:47, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
- Either way, we better get this list done soon. There is an example of a timeline list on Bulbapedia for both the games and it's anime. Wikipedia's got many timeline lists that might give us ideas for our own.
- Kryten also said earlier that we must put everything that happened on it, since even the Mirage Arenas and Deep Jungle are canon (I've spelt it correctly again) at this point (though I still doubt that for the latter). UxieLover1994 11:58, 10 September 2011 (UTC)
I would agree with Kryten for Deep Jungle — as much as it didn't appear in the rest of the series, the hints in that world are integral to the rest of the story of KH1: Hollow Bastion (the castle), the process of becoming a Heartless (Clayton lost his heart, ASOD discarded his body according to the Ansem Reports), the definition of friends, the second of three tensions between Sora, Donald and Goofy. It's only fitting that after this split comes the major split in Hollow Bastion. If it weren't canon, it'd have the same effect as, say, the Kingdom Hearts manga whereby Vexen creates several dozen replicas of himself, and they kill another OXIII member — that doesn't even happen in-game.
- Of course. Here's the games' and here's the anime's. (Please note that the movies in the anime, along with some episdoes, try to make Ash Ketchum and his Pikachu sound as legendary and needed as some of the protagonists in our series). UxieLover1994 12:48, 10 September 2011 (UTC)

 Potential Dating System Substitute
One of the main reasons the timeline on this talk page seems messy and cluttered (to me, at least) is because it lacks an obvious indicator of when any particular event takes place relative to other events (other than those directly preceding and following it). Translation: It needs dates.
It sounds simple in theory, but the reality is far from it. We have no way of knowing how much time our heroes spend in any given World, and even if we did, Riku and Joshua's discussion in Dream Drop Distance indicates it wouldn't matter anyway; time flows differently in every World. Furthermore, concrete measures of time are rarely used with much specificity by characters nor in Reports, aside from Roxas's conveniently labeled year of existence. All this makes everything sort of difficult to measure (and don't even get me started on Xehanort's time travel shenanigans), but I think I've come up with a potential solution, or at least the beginnings of one.
The idea actually came to me while re-watching Blank Points. I suggest we separate the current timeline into three sections, or eras: 0, 1, and 2. Each would use the beginning of its corresponding game (Birth by Sleep, KH1, and KH2) as the beginning of its own dating system, and would continue through subsequent games and events until reaching the start of the next era. Thus, we would have Era 0 lasting from Sora's birth all the way through to Sora, Riku, and Kairi starting work on their raft. We could then further separate this era into up to 10 (or potentially more if it proves necessary) sub-eras based on related events. We could then number the events that occur in each sub-era in sequence. The same formula could be applied to eras 1, 2, and potentially 3 as well. Here's a bare-bones example timeline I've come up with.
- 0.0.00 Sora is born. Master Xehanort takes Ventus to the Destiny Islands. Sora's new heart joins with Ventus's fractured one, restoring it.
- 0.0.01 Master Xehanort brings Ventus to the Land of Departure.
- 0.0.02 Terra, Ventus, and Aqua grow up together and become inseparable. Aqua begins crafting the Wayfinders.
- 0.0.03 There is a meteor shower the night before Terra and Aqua' Mark of Mastery exam. Aqua presents her friends with the Wayfinders.
- 0.0.04 Eraqus names Aqua a Keyblade Master, but Terra does not pass his Mark of Mastery due to interference from Master Xehanort. Ventus and Vanitas meet. Master Yen Sid warns of monsters called Unversed threatening the Worlds. Master Xehanort is nowhere to be found. Terra, Ventus, and Aqua begin their adventures.
- 0.1.01 Xehanort arrives in the Enchanted Dominion. He teaches Maleficent about the Seven Princesses of Heart and of the existence of other Worlds.
- 0.1.02 Terra arrives in the Enchanted Dominion seeking Master Xehanort. Maleficent ends up using him to steal Princess Aurora's heart.
- 0.1.03 Terra arrives in the Dwarf Woodlands.
And so on. Anything taking place before Sora's birth could either be classified as simply "Pre-0" and not use the era system, or it could be the Negative Era or something, and labeled with negative numbers.
The idea is that since the majority of the series doesn't bother specifying the time periods between different events, we shouldn't either. Note that I do think time periods should be noted where they are given. It's just that they're given so sparingly it's impossible to base a chronology off of that.
Anyway, to finish us off, here's how I would see the general layout of eras and sub-eras going if this idea were to take hold, excluding the Pre-0/Negative Era.
Era 0 (Birth by Sleep)
- 0.0 Sora's birth through Aqua's departure from the Land of Departure
- 0.1 Xehanort's arrival in the Enchanted Dominion through Aqua's departure from the Enchanted Dominion
- 0.2 Terra's arrival at the Mysterious Tower through Ventus's departure from Radiant Garden
- 0.3 Terra's arrival in Disney Town through Aqua's departure from Never Land
- 0.4 Ventus's arrival at the Mysterious Tower through Aqua's arrival in the Realm of Darkness
- 0.5 Ansem the Wise's initial heart experiments through King Mickey's departure from Disney Castle (Note: This sub-era covers about a decade of events, but the vast majority of these events are not directly witnessed by us, the players. This sub-era has the potential to span across more sub-eras should additional information arise)
Era 1 (Kingdom Hearts, Chain of Memories, 358/2 Days)
- 1.0 Sora's Awakening through his first departure from Traverse Town
- 1.1 Sora's arrival in Wonderland through his second departure from Traverse Town
- 1.2 Sora's arrival in Agrabah through his transformation into a Heartless
- 1.3 Roxas's 1st day through the locking of Ansem's Door to Darkness
- 1.4 Roxas's 20th day (roughly) through his 49th day (Note: Includes the entirety of Chain of Memories. Could possibly span two sub-eras.)
- 1.5 Roxas's 50th day through his 148th day
- 1.6 Roxas's 149th day through his 254th day
- 1.7 Roxas's 255th day through his 351st day
- 1.8 Roxas's 352nd day through his placement in the Simulated Twilight Town
Era 2 (Kingdom Hearts II, Coded, Dream Drop Distance)
- 2.0 The first day of Roxas's simulated "summer vacation" through Sora's departure from Hollow Bastion
- 2.1 Sora's arrival in the Land of Dragons through his departure from Pride Land
- 2.2 Sora's return to Twilight Town through his escape from Hollow Bastion
- 2.3 Sora's return Land of Dragons through his second departure from Pride Land
- 2.4 Sora's fourth arrival in Hollow Bastion through Axel's sacrifice in Betwixt and Between
- 2.5 Sora's arrival at the World That Never Was through his return to the Destiny Islands
- 2.6 Jiminy's discovery of the mysterious message in his journal through Sora and Riku's departure from the Destiny Islands (Note: Contains all of Coded.)
- 2.7 Sora and Riku's arrival at the Mysterious Tower through their departure from the Symphony of Sound
- 2.8 Sora and Riku's arrival at the World That Never Was through Kairi's arrival at the Mysterious Tower
Era 3 (Kingdom Hearts III)
- I think this is actually a really good idea. What I also like to see is which events occurs in which game, meaning there could be a colored heart (or something like that) before the number that indicates the game, like it's done with the game template. But what about events we were only told about (King Mickey's adventures in the Realm of Darkness, the first Keyblade War etc.), when we have such a concrete timeline it may be difficult to insert these events. --ShardofTruth (talk) 20:32, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
- A few comments:
- I don't think we should actually call these "Era X" in the headers, since we could raise up a hullabaloo similar to the somebody fuss. Instead, The headers should probably state some important, definitive event, probably the ones that start off each game; "The eve of Terra and Aqua's Mark of Mastery exam", "The morning Sora undergoes his Dive to the Heart", "Roxas's birth", "Sora's reawakening".
- On a very banal note, I'm going to say we have to assume that the events in each world generally take a day or two, if only because we usually don't see the sun rising or setting during a world's episode. When we do, we can obviously adjust that. Furthermore, there's not much hint that each journey lasts more than about a month, so I don't think we should assume the Lanes Between take too much time either. In regards to Riku and Joshua's discussion, if that's the one at the beginning, isn't he just implying that the Sleeping Worlds can have copies within a visitor's dreams?
- Most of the prologue stuff is actually fairly well nailed down, if we just work systematically. Ventus's fracture would have to be fourteen years before KH1, for example, while Maleficent attacking Radiant Garden would be one year after the start of BbS (nine years before KH1).
- I definitely like this idea, though. For sub-headers, I think just indented the bullets would work, though I think we can come up with a system to provide approximate dates for the events, especially with the help of the Ultimanias and the official timeline that was printed somewhere (I think Neumannz posted a link). If we need to denote explicit dates from assumed, we can.188.8.131.52 21:09, 2 August 2012 (UTC)
- Ah, good point.
- It takes less than a day from that World's perspective, but from another World's perspective it could take more or less time. I was referring to the conversation Riku and Joshua have during Riku's second visit to Traverse Town, when Joshua reveals that when Shiki crossed over to Sora's Traverse Town, the timer on her hand had more time left than her partner Neku's, and when Rhyme crossed over to Riku's Traverse Town, the timer on her hand had less time left than her partner Beat's. This indicates that time moves more quickly in Sora's Traverse Town than it does in Riku's. Riku argued that since they were different Worlds that was normal, but Joshua pointed out that it meant they couldn't be parallel Worlds like they'd first thought. So, yeah. An entire day in Radiant Garden could be half that in Twilight Town. And that brings another point. Who can say if a day has passed if the sun is continually setting? And if we think too much about the precise number of days that a journey takes we start to ask how long a day would be from Sora's perspective. Would he measure days based on how long they were on the Destiny Islands? Would he just say it had been a day once he felt sleepy? In the end, I've decided it doesn't really matter, which is why I came up with the numbering system seen above to make it easier to reference specific events and when they happened without relying on terms like days and years which are unreliable and variant in this series.
- The issue I have with that is that there's no reference point other than "the start of X game." If we want to use dates at all we need to decide on an event to use as a reference point and get a system going. We could use that for the headers too, if we wanted. Instead of "Era 1" or "That day when Sora takes a nap and Riku throws a log at him," for the header, we could have "14 years since Sora's birth" or "9 years after Kairi's arrival on Destiny Islands." We could alternatively come up with a year system like, as an example, BA (Before Awakening) and AA (After Awakening) and measure events from the start of KH1 like that.
- I guess I just take issue with the idea of giving some of the events valid "this many days exactly" dates while giving most of the non-prologue stuff "kind of this many days ish" dates. It's unavoidable, I know, but I loves me some consistency. (My opinion is still that since the games don't bother with specific dates we shouldn't either, but I'm a vocal minority in that department, I think.) Fabala011 (talk) 00:11, 3 August 2012 (UTC)
- Twilight Town still has night, it's just the sun apparently never gets too far up above the horizon. That's normal for a planet if the town is at an extreme latitude. For the day thing, that's getting into issues of "universal time", which doesn't exist in the real world either. If the sun rises and sets on whatever world he's on, that's a day.
- I really, really don't want this to be subdivided into a false date numbering system like "BA" or "AA". We should stick to what is actually shown in the games. Pulling headers based on significant events only is also going to make it difficult to represent the events leading up to them, since they would naturally go slightly before it. I think the best bet is to organize them roughly before the start of a game, where the known events start happening.(╯°□°）╯︵ ┻━┻ I AM KING OF THE SHOOPUFS! 07:31, 12 August 2012 (UTC)

 Update based on Official Site
This is the first time I've done anything to help on this site, so please tell me if I'm doing something wrong. So I was looking for something related to Kingdom Hearts (I can't remember what anymore) and I came across the new portal for the Kingdom Hearts page in Japan. So I was thinking, what if we modeled the timeline article based on that. The new portal has a chronology section. I think all we need to do is translate and use that for the timeline here. I couldn't find the North America portal, so I don't think there is an official translation. The site is here: KINGDOM HEARTS| KINGDOM HEARTS PORTAL SITE| SQUARE ENIX Any thoughts?
- That seems like a good starting point, but we need someone who knows Japanese to decipher it first *cough* Pea *cough*. PS. You need to sign your posts with four ~~~~ TheFifteenthMember 23:35, 11 August 2012 (UTC)
- Ok, well, I kind of stopped trying, but last night I found a picture of the chronology page, just translated. Now, this isn't an official translation, but it's the same page, just translated (and it personally makes more sense than Google Translate's version). I just don't know how to upload it yet. By the way, thanks TheFifteenthMember for the help. KeybladeSpyMaster (talk) 22:26, 26 December 2012 (UTC)
- Ok, The link is here. What do you guys think?KeybladeSpyMaster (talk) 20:41, 27 December 2012 (UTC)
 Timeline needs more detail
I don't know about you guys, but I think that under the Timeline, that there should be a story, or even better: make a story page. The one in Kingdom Hearts (series) is a bit... un-chronological/doesn't have enough detail. Can I have permission to do this? Neku's Nobody (talk) 00:39, 23 September 2012 (UTC)
