"The Friend They'd Never Met" is a cutscene in Kingdom Hearts III. It shows Sora, Donald, and Goofy reuniting with Hayner, Pence, and Olette and learning about Lucky Emblems.

Story[edit | edit source]

After fighting the Demon Tide off, Sora, Donald, and Goofy find Hayner, Pence, and Olette and explain that they are trying to bring back Roxas. Hayner, Pence, and Olette don't know anyone by that name, but they remark that it sounds familiar, so Goofy shows them the picture from the Simulated Twilight Town that shows them in front of the Old Mansion with Roxas. Intrigued, Hayner, Pence, and Olette decide to ask around town about Roxas, while Sora, Donald, and Goofy decide to journey ahead to the Old Mansion.

Before separating, the group take a photo together with Sora's Gummiphone, which leads to his first discovery of a Lucky Emblem.

Transcript[edit | edit source]

Fade in on Sora, standing in the Tram Common streets. He turns around to face Hayner, Pence, and Olette as they walk on-screen behind him. Hayner grunts and swings one arm back and forth. He, Olette, and Pence stop before Sora.

Hayner: "Nice fightin'! Thanks, Sora."

Sora: "Hayner, Pence, Olette. It's been ages!"

Hayner: "What? It hasn't been that long."

Donald and Goofy walk to Sora's side.

Donald Duck: "Ya see?"

Olette: "Donald! Goofy! How are ya?"

Donald Duck: "We're good."

Goofy waves.

Goofy: "Howdy there, Olette."

Pence: "So does this mean that weird stuff's going down again?"

Hayner leans towards Pence and starts gesturing wildly, causing Pence to groan in surprise.

Hayner: "You kidding, Pence? When have we ever seen a tornado of shadowy blobs before? It's not "weird." This is underprecedented."

Pence lifts a hand to his chin in thought.

Pence: "Hmm, I guess it is. The creatures from the last time were bright white. These things must be new."

Holding his arms in front of his chest. Pence slams his right fist into his left palm, excited.

Pence: "Man, I can't wait to get to sleuthin'."

Beside Pence, Hayner is posed with a fist clenched in front of his face. Beside Hayner, Olette leans forward to address the both of them.

Olette: "We're already done with the school project, silly."

Hayner and Pence relax out of their poses.

Olette: "Whatever's going on, you wouldn't be here unless you had a good reason."

Hayner: "Which is?"

Sora: "Well, actually, we're looking for Roxas."

Olette: "Roxas?"

Hayner grunts and lifts a hand to his chin.

Hayner: "That's funny... I don't know any Roxas,"

Pence nods and grunts assent.

Hayner: "but the name sounds familiar."

Pence: "Maybe we bumped into him somewhere."

Donald and Goofy exchange glances.

Donald Duck: "Uh, that's one way to put it."

Goofy: "Actually, he mighta been friends with another version of ya."

Goofy pulls a photograph from his pants pocket and hands it to Hayner. It's a photo of Hayner, Pence, Olette, and Roxas in front of the Old Mansion. Hayner, Pence, and Olette examine the photograph with shocked expressions.

Olette: "This photograph..."

Pence: "Yeah. We've got the same one."

Pence pulls a photograph from his pants pocket and holds it up next to the photo from Goofy. The pictures are identical except Roxas is missing from the one Pence holds.

Hayner: "Oh yeah! The other Twilight Town!"

Pence: "It's like one of those "spot the differences" puzzles... except really easy. I guess in that town, we're friends with this "Roxas" person."

Hayner looks up.

Hayner: "Sora, let us help you track Roxas down."

Olette and Pence nod and grunt agreement.

Sora: "Really?"

Hayner lifts the photo to take a closer look.

Hayner: "Sure, he seems like a pretty cool guy."

Sora chuckles, smiling widely.

Sora: "Yeah. He is."

Pence: "Great. Then let's all go ask around town. If alternate-us knew Roxas, then maybe alternate-other folks did too."

Olette: "Mm-hmm. Sora, you three should go to the place in the photo. It's the old mansion. The three of us'll cover places in town."

Sora: "Thanks. Oh yeah! I got this phone thingy that takes pictures."

With a "Ha", Sora pulls the Gummiphone from his back pocket.

Sora: "Wanna snap a photo while we're all here?"

Hayner: "Sure."

Pence: "That's a great idea!"

The screen fades to black. Fade back in on Sora, laughing and posing with crossed arms. The camera swings across to show Hayner next to him, laughing and giving a thumbs up. On the wall behind Hayner, a symbol that looks a lot like the shape of King Mickey's head can be seen carved into the brick. The camera swings down to show Donald standing in front of Sora and Hayner. With a "Hyah", he poses with his hands on his hips. Cut to a shot of the whole group, Goofy and Olette (with one hand crossed behind her back) to the left of Hayner, and Pence (his hands resting on his head) to the right of Sora. They all pose for a moment before Pence starts, lifting his eyebrows with a "Hmmm?".

Pence: "Wait, who's taking it?"

Sora and Hayner gasp, then sigh. The screen cuts to black, then returns to show the group again, this time missing Donald and Goofy. Cut to a shot of the Gummiphone, then zoom out to show Donald holding it up to take the picture. He lowers the phone, reveals his deep frown, and groans.

Donald Duck: "Why do I have to do it?"

Sora: "Hey, tough luck. You drew the short straw."

Goofy: "It's okay. I'm sittin' outta the photo with ya, Donald."

Donald Duck: "Then you take the photograph!"

Donald shoves the phone into Goofy's hands and marches back to join the group. With a pointed "Ha!", he returns to his hands on hips pose.

Goofy: "Everybody smile. A-hyuck!"

Goofy presses the photo button and the screen cuts to black. Cut to a shot of the Gummiphone screen, which is filled with the photo.

Pence: "Wow, that came out great!"

Cut to show the group huddled around the phone. Olette places a finger on the screen.

Olette: "Oh! A lucky emblem."

Return to the shot of the screen, revealing that Olette is pointing to the wall in the photo where the Mickey-head symbol can be seen.

Sora: "Lucky emblem?"

Olette: "Oh yeah, they are huge right now. Supposedly, these things are hidden all over town. And if you get a picture of them, they'll bring you good luck."

Goofy and Donald say "Wow".

Sora: "Cool! Wait."

Sora jabs a finger at the screen.

Sora: "Look, guys! Is that..."

Donald and Goofy lean in excitedly. Goofy gives an "A-hyuck!".

Goofy: "You're right! I see it too."

Donald Duck: "Is it the King?"

Sora chuckles and smiles.

Sora: "I knew it."

Olette: "Good luck, because they're not all this easy to find."

Hayner: "Okay, we'd better start asking around. You start by checking out the old mansion. We'll catch up."

Sora: "Got it."

The screen fades to black.
