This scene is exactly why I hate the HD remake apart from the blatant removal of Saïx’s boss fight because this is literally my favorite scene in the entire game.
Saïx: You cannot help your comrade. Xion will not wake up.
[Roxas looks down and shakes his head.]
Roxas: That’s not the point! I should still be with her.
[He tries to run again.]
Saïx: What do you care? The creature is broken. Defective.
[Roxas stops and turns around.]
Roxas: Don’t call her that!
Saïx: I’ll call that thing whatever I want. How we deal with Xion is no concern of yours.
Roxas: I didn’t ask you if it was!
Saïx: Look at you, Roxas. Up in arms over a nobody.
Roxas: We’re all Nobodies!
Saïx: Settle down. Xion’s failings won’t affect your standing with us. You’ve nothing to worry about.
Roxas: Won’t affect my— What is WRONG with you? Look, I’ll do my mission—later.
dis scene. dis fucking scene is a giant insight into the differences in their psychology and how warped Saïx has become, and even Roxas calls him out on it.
He cannot understand how Roxas can be concerned for someone who has no use and why simply being there for them means anything. If you are useless, you are nothing.
He thinks it’s entirely illogical to be at Xion’s side because her uselessness won’t affect Roxas negatively unless he puts off his work for her sake and there’s nothing Roxas can do to help her so why waste the effort; it wouldn’t make any sense.
His thinking is completely self-centered and “logical” while Roxas is being entirely selfless and human.
Saïx got all his scenes with Axel, but in return, all the scenes with Roxas that were skipped over ruin the remake for me since those two really develop each other and define each other as characters. imo.
