Kingdom Hearts is a magical action-adventure RPG gaming series combining the worlds of Disney and Final Fantasy, but who is the best Kingdom Hearts character? Gamers were first introduced to Sora, the main character of the the original Kingdom Hearts, in 2002 when it debuted on the PlayStation 2. Since then, there have been a total of 11 prequels, sequels, and spin-offs, as well as a second "main title" Kingdom Hearts II in 2005. Fans are patiently awaiting the confirmed-but-still-TBA follow-up Kingdom Hearts 3.  

Between all of the titles, fans have been introduced to over 90 Kingdom Hearts characters - some old and some new, such is the beauty of crossover. From Disney classics like Mickey Mouse, Donald Duck, and Goofy, to Final Fantasy icons like Cloud, Squall, and Tidus, or brand new characters like Sora, Riku, and Kairi, Kingdom Hearts hosts a cast as epic as its storyline.

This list ranks best and worst Kingdom Hearts characters, with the help of your votes. Vote up the characters based on their worth in the franchise, or simply by how much you love them in the games.
