A spire of darkness shoots into the air as Dark Riku is defeated.
Dark Riku: You're not...real...
Dark Riku: I'm...the real one...
Riku: Aren't you my past self? From when Ansem possessed me?
Riku Replica leaves Riku's body.
Riku Replica: No, you beat Ansem and you're still here. This guy...is me!
Riku Replica plunges his hand is Dark Riku's chest, revealing him to be a replica.
Riku Replica: I knew it. It's a replica. A soon-to-be empty vessel. I've been waiting for a chance like this.
Riku Replica extracts Dark Riku from the replica.
Riku: Hey! What are you doing? Take the vessel!
Riku Replica: No. The world already has you. There's someone else who needs the replica more. You know who I mean.
Riku: Naminé. You're saving her.
Flahback to Riku Replica protecting Naminé.
Riku Replica: Good luck.
Riku Replica and Dark Riku fade away.
