He's based off of Sakaguchi. And Eraqus is an anagram of Square.
So many problems would have been solved with BbS had Eraqus said this to Terra in the beginning. But that's the nature of a prequel.
Nomura likes anagrams. You can break Xehanort into No Heart + X, Another, and No Earth + X.
Oh don't worry they seem bent on rectifying that in KH3. Young Eraqus is something else.
>Young Eraqus doesn't look like old Eraqus
>just like Old Xehanort doesn't look like Terranort
Hm, wonder where Xehanort learned that trick from.
Not that anon, but Xehanort looks just like Terra when he was younger, just with darker skin and grey hair, so you'd think he would just look like an old man version Terranort really.
You see Sora, you're not actually the protagonist because of your good heart, and Riku didn't go through hell because of the darkness in his. It was actually a bunch of weirdos in armor who put their soul goo in you and set your entire fate in motion just like that.
