Kingdom Hearts Makes Zero Sense (Fans vs. Faves Pt. 4)

Kingdom Hearts Makes Zero Sense (Fans vs. Faves Pt. 4)


[MUSIC PLAYING] – From Proto Man to
the protomolecule, nerds like a lot of things. But there’s something
they love above all else, and that is correcting people. This is Um, Actually. And joining us today,
we have Ify Nwadiwe. – Hey, what’s up. It’s your boy. I’m back. – He’s back. And Siobhan Thompson. – Hi, what’s up? It’s your girl. – And our fan contestant
for this game, from Lexington,
Kentucky, Jeremy Puckett. – Hi-diddly-ho, neighborenos. – There we go. We’re very excited
to have you here– very excited to get
the fans in here. This will be the last episode
that we’re doing for a while. It’s like this,
but hopefully we’ll get to do some
more in the future. If you didn’t hear about
this before, I don’t know, get on the Discord. You two have played before. You’ve certainly seen some
episodes in your time, so you all know how
this game works. But for those at home, I have
here a stack of statements. These are incorrect
statements, about the things that you know and love. It’s up to these
fine contestants to find the thing that
is wrong and correct it. Corrections must be preceded
with the phrase, “Um, actually.” If you don’t, I won’t
give you the point. And you can correct me at
any point in my sentence. Pretty simple rules,
pretty simple game, let’s see how it goes. Based off the 1990s
manga of the same name, the film Alita: Battle
Angel takes place in the post-apocalyptic
distant future of Earth, focusing on the sprawling
junkyard metropolis of Iron City, which sits
below the wealthier, floating city of Zalem. [DING] – Um, actually, it doesn’t
actually take place on Earth. – Incorrect. – Well, you always make it look
like [INAUDIBLE] I’m right. – That’s what I
was going to guess. [DING] – Yes? – Um, actually,
the manga is called Gunm, or Battle Angel Alita
in the English translation. – That’s correct. The manga is called Battle Angel
Alita, not Alita Battle Angel. – Whoo! – OK. [INTERPOSING VOICES] – I go home with a point. – Nitpicky. – And that’s where we
can sit back and go like, OK, I got this. – Now I don’t have to worry
about dishonor on my house, dishonor on my cow. – Oh yeah, that’s perfect. Yeah, no dishonor around here. You got that point. – Cool cool, you got the
pedant questions then. And that’s the ones you’ve got. – What game do you
think we’re playing? – Cool, cool. I thought we were talking
about some real nerd stuff, not rearranging words. This ain’t Scrabble. – All right. Well, that’s a point for Jeremy. We’ll move on to
our next question. This is about Kingdom Hearts. – Well. – Yours. – The Kingdom Hearts series
brings together characters from Final Fantasy and Disney in
a notoriously hard-to-follow adventure story. The first game starts,
however, in a location known as The Destiny
Islands, a location that is original to Kingdom
Hearts and populated entirely by original characters,
like our protagonist, Sora. [DING] Jeremy? – Um, actually, it is not
inhabited by entirely original characters. – That’s correct, can
you be more specific? – I cannot. You’ve exhausted the depth of
my Kingdom Hearts knowledge. – Well, that’s fair enough. Anyone else? [DING] – Um, actually, Minnie
Mouse lives there. – Oh, man that was– – Incorrect. [DING] – Hoo, this is a
free throw, because I got to take myself
back to Ify in 2006, playing this right
before senior year. Getting ready, I had
two things on my mind, beating Kingdom Hearts,
losing my virginity. – Which one did you do first? – And the two are in conflict. – I lost my virginity first. – You know what? Congratulations. – Yeah, yeah. Thanks. You know– – Well, Kingdom
Hearts is a hard game. – Yeah, yeah, yeah. – American Pie type story. – Well, that’s what
I grew up off of. I was like, I can’t
graduate a virgin. You know, movies they
have an effect on me. So, I’m going to go and
guess that the character was Lilo from Lilo and Stitch. – Incorrect. So we’ll give that
point to Jeremy. [DING] The island was also
populated by child versions of well-known Final
Fantasy characters– – Oh, yes. – — like Titus from
Final Fantasy X. – What? OK. – And Sophie from
Final Fantasy XIV. – Sure. – That’s the correct response. – No, I have a friend
who was recently [? playing ?] Kingdom
Hearts III, and I asked him, “So you finished it. Does the ending make any sense?” And his response was, “About as
much as the rest of the series does.” – Nothing in the
series makes sense. I think these are
already characters that have back stories that
are existing elsewhere, but here they are as children. – It also seems insane
to me that Disney, which is notoriously very
proprietary about their stuff and how you use them, it’s like
sure, Mickey can have a sword and kill people. Absolutely. – Well, actually–
um, actually– I believe, although
I may need someone to check me on this because this
could be apocrypha or something just invaded my brain. I believe that part of the
reason that Sora wields a giant key instead of a sword
is because Disney was like, no, no, no, not a big sword. That’s too violent. So it’s like, what
if it’s a big key? It’s like that’s cool,
that’ll work all right. So yeah, the weapon
is just a giant key. – That makes as much
sense to me as anything about Kingdom Hearts. – Yeah. – Sure. – Wild. – Well, a point for Jeremy
on that one for identifying that it wasn’t
populated entirely by original characters. Here’s a D&D question for y’all. In the Planescape setting
of Dungeons and Dragons, the city of Sigil
serves as a kind of interdimensional crossroads. It is ruled by The Lady
of Pain, an inscrutable being powerful enough to kill
a god with a single thought. She also does not
allow beings like gods into Sigil, instead insisting
that the denizens of Sigil worship her as their
one true goddess. Yes, Jeremy? – Um, actually, one of The
Lady of Pain’s primary rules is that she is not to
be worshipped as a god. – That is correct. – Oh, man. – Wow. – Yeah, I didn’t have a chance. I just play my own
cooked up games. I don’t do these systems. Sorry. [INTERPOSING VOICES] – The best thing
about Planescape is Tony DiTerlizzi’s art. It’s just beautiful, and like
labyrinth-type stuff as D&D, and it’s gorgeous. – Oh so you just read
it for the pictures? – Oh, absolutely. – I mean, I think I’ve
talked about this before. But when I was a kid, I would
get monster manuals just for the art. I didn’t play
Dungeons and Dragons, but I was like, “That’s
a cool monster.” I’m going to buy that. – I feel like this is the
more– beat for beat– the difference between
nerds and regular dudes. He was like, oh, I read
it for the articles. Like no, I read it
for the pictures. – Well, that is another
point for Jeremy. This is a new thing that we are
doing, this is a fan question. This is a question written by a
fan and submitted to the show. So this will be fan v.
fan a little bit here. This comes to us from Tikiza– maybe that’s how
you say your name. Ta-kye-zah? Tikiza? Tikiza. Let’s go with Tikiza. The Norse pantheon is full
of familiar figures like Odin and his sons, Thor and Loki. But there are many
obscure deities, too. Forseti is a god who peacefully
settled disputes between men. Sol is the goddess of the sun. Mani is the god of the moon,
and Hodr is a warrior god typically depicted as blind. [DING] Ify? – Um, actually, Hodr’s
not one of the gods. – Hodr’s one of the gods. – Now, all right. – Hodr, Hodr, Hodr. [DING] Siobhan? – Um, actually,
Hodr isn’t blind. Odin is blind. Like, does he have two– – Odin is missing an eye. Hodr is depicted as blind. – That’s a lot of blind
deities in Norse mythology. – Hey, you know? [DING] – Um, actually, in
Norse mythology, Loki is not Odin’s son. He’s Odin’s brother. – That’s correct. – In Marvel, they are brothers. – See, that’s why– – I was still doing it as MCU. [INTERPOSING VOICES] – You can’t let
the MCU trick you. Yep. – Stan Lee! Done again. – You’ve tricked me again. – Just remember, if you ever
think that mythology is weird, Loki once had sex with
a horse to win a bet. – Oh yeah, and then didn’t
he have a horse child– – Yeah, a horse baby. – –that he gave birth to? – He was the mother of a horse. – Great. – Yeah. – Look, if you’re living
in classical times, we’re living in the
mythological age, you’ve got to be careful
with the animals. Because you’re going to
give birth to animals. – Yeah, yeah. – Thank you Tikiza, for
this tricky Norse mythology versus Marvel question. It’s another point for Jeremy. And this will bring us to
our first shiny question of the game. Shiny questions, of course,
same number of points, just a little bit different–
a little bit rare, just like shiny Pokémon. This is a game
called Where Am I? [MUSIC PLAYING] So this is a game
called Where Am I? This is a game
we’ve played before. So on the other side of this,
there are a series of maps. So we’re going to go
kind of one at a time. First person to buzz in and
correct it will get the point. Wait till I say next to
flip to the next one, just so everyone’s
looking at the same thing at the same time. Now, in the past these have
been predominantly fantasy maps from fantasy novels. This time, these are going
to be video game maps. Flip your stack. Tell me, where am I? What map this? [MUSIC PLAYING] [DING] Jeremy? – This is Final Fantasy VI. – It is Final Fantasy VI. All right, flip to the next one. Where am I? What is this? Ify? – Witcher, Witcher 3. – This is The Witcher 3, yes. All right, flip. [DING] Ify? – Super Mario World. – Yes. That was just a race to
see who could get it first, and that was Ify. All right, and flip. – Oh. – Oh. – Oh, yeah. Bleh. – Where am I? Where is this? [DING] Jeremy? – Fantasy Star? – Incorrect. [DING] Siobhan? – Is this Civilization? – It is not. [DING] – Zone of the Enders? – Incorrect. This is Capital
Wasteland from Fallout 3. – Oh my god. – Oh. – Oh. – I’ve never seen it
completely revealed like this. – We’re zoomed way out. – Oh my god, yeah. – Yep, yep. So no one gets that one. We’ll get ready here for
the next one, and flip. [DING] Ify? – This is– I was almost going to say
Fallout, but this is Fortnite. – This is Fortnite. – This is a season six, too,
I think, season five or six. – Ify, I don’t have that
information on my card. I couldn’t tell you, but
this is in fact, Fortnite. All right, and let’s
get that last map. Flip. [DING] Jeremy? – This is Oregon Trail. – This is the Oregon Trail. – I didn’t even need to read
the map, the shape of it was burned into my eyeballs. – Yeah, this is– yep, there it is. That’s our grand country
there, Soda Springs and all. Well, that was a
very fast-moving one. Jeremy, you got two. Ify, you got three. That point goes to Ify. – Look at so many maps. – That’s it for this
preview of Um, Actually. But wait, there’s more– in fact, a whole
66% of this episode. To watch it, just
go to dropout.tv. Start your free trial today. And since we’re all
about being correct here, I should point out that
it’s not actually 66%. It’s 66.6666666666666. It will be up to you to
give the appropriate food to the appropriate
character, that is matching the food from the
franchise to the character that it would belong to. Whoever can get the most
correctly matched up will get the point. All right, let’s
flip those over. Look, look who we got here. Look at these fun folks.
