The Outside World
"The Outside World" is a cutscene in Kingdom Hearts.
Story[edit | edit source]
After spending the day working on the raft, Sora, Kairi, and Riku relax on the paopu tree and begin to discuss their journey. Riku explains that he has always wondered what lay beyond their island, and expresses desire to go out to find out, despite not being sure whether the raft would work of what he would do upon arriving on another world. He then notes that his whole plan is because of Kairi and her arrival from another world years before.
Later, as they begin to head home, Riku tosses a paopu fruit to Sora, and explains the legend of the paopu fruit to him. He then teases Sora, telling him he knows Sora wants to try the fruit before running off. Sora, confused, tosses the fruit aside and gives chase.
Transcript[edit | edit source]
Sora: "So, Kairi's home is out there somewhere, right?"
Riku: "Could be. We'll never know by staying here."
Sora: "But how far could a raft take us?"
Riku: "Who knows? If we have to, we'll think of something else."
Kairi: "So, suppose you get to another world. (giggle) What would you do there?"
Riku: "Well, I haven't really thought about it. It's just... I've always wondered why we're here on this island. If there are any other worlds out there, why did we end up on this one? And suppose there are other worlds... Then ours is just a little piece of something much greater. So we could have just as easily ended up somewhere else, right?"
Sora: "I don't know."
Riku: "Exactly. That's why we need to go out there and find out. Just sitting here won't change a thing. It's the same old stuff. So let's go."
Kairi: "You've been thinking a lot lately, haven't you?"
Riku: "Thanks to you. If you hadn't come here, I probably would've never thought of any of this. Kairi, thanks."
Kairi: "You're welcome."
Riku: "Sora. You wanted one, didn't you?"
Sora: "A paopu fruit..."
Riku: "If two people share one, their destinies become intertwined. They'll remain a part of each other's lives no matter what. C'mon, I know you want to try it."
Sora: "What are you talking--"
