Aqua in Kingdom Hearts 3
Aqua’s story is prominently featured in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts 0.2: A Fragmentary Passage. In Birth by Sleep, she sacrifices herself to save her friend Terra, letting herself fall into the Realm of Darkness. She eventually meets King Mickey and Ansem the Wise there, having her hope renewed when she learns that Sora will save her and her friends.
In the first Kingdom Hearts 3 E3 2018 Trailer, Aqua was shown emitting a dark aura. Her eyes have also noticeably changed color from blue to gold.
It should be noted that Aqua’s golden eyes may imply a connection with Master Xehanort. It might also be possible that Aqua has been recruited to Organization XIII, though these are just speculations.
