Kingdom Hearts creator and producer, Tetsuya Nomura, has said that the idea of the game did not appeal to him at first, and Sora carried a chainsaw as a weapon originally.


“Square wanted to make a game starring Mickey Mouse, and Disney wanted a Donald Duck title. Meanwhile, I wanted neither,” he told Famitsu.

“The first weapon I showed Disney was a chainsaw. It was this chainsaw-like weapon that I had a rough sketch of when I first showed my concepts to Disney. Everyone got this scrunched-up look on their face and nobody said a word in the entire room.

“Dead silence. And I thought ‘No, I guess this wouldn’t work, huh?'”
