Will we eventually stop saying "MF"?

The secret fight with Xemnas in KH1FM, EVERYONE now calls "Xemnas", not "Unknown". Same with KH2 Terranort. But neither were named when it came out.

And yet... here we are, still referring to the LoD fight in BBS as "MF". At least, from what I see. But we know who he is, he's not mysterious anymore! I'd like to wonder if it'll wear off eventually like the above... has the name "Mysterious Figure" permanently stuck?

Where did that name come from anyway? It's used like it's a trademark... Isn't he "Unknown" in the Journal?

I don't know. I still use "Terra's Lingering Spirit" to differentiate that fight from any of the Terranort ones in BBS. That way, you're dealing with Terra's LS and Terranort, not just Terra and Terra.

I still call Xemnas the Enigmatic Man when I'm specifically referring to that fight, too.

Because MF sums that guy up quite nicely.

Once KH3 is released, the usage of that name will decrease drastically.

First of all, Lingering Spirit isn't Terranort. It's just Terra's...will, or something.

Second of all, MF is so much cooler than the loser that is Youngnort.

Now that I think about it, I bet if America got the above FM bosses I mentioned above, they would feel "cooler" than the characters they are supposed to be as well as have enough of a following to have their own trademark name.

Also, your right. The Lingering whatever thing in KH2 is what Terra's final boss is, and nothing more. Not Terranort or any other Terra or nort. Hence the music.

tbf, we never got KH2FM in America, and I, regardless, think that LS is much cooler than Terra.

Unknown and Xemnas are probably even, though.

More like what you control during Terra's final boss >.>

Heh, I meant for there to be enough of a distinction to begin with between the two, for everyone, not just yourself.

I'll be honest, I've never played either of the FMs. I know about the bosses though, seen videos and stuff. But still, without the full-on experience, they are just names and sprites to me. Plus, the fact that I knew about the characters already before learning about them doesn't help.
MF, we all fought though. Or attempted.

I'm sure most being in the same boat is the cause of that.
