Kairi is a supporting character in the Disney/Square Enix video game Kingdom Hearts.



Where Kairi is concerned, the Kingdom Hearts fandom is often divided. Being the main female character, she is unquestionably popular in shipping, however many fans scorn Kairi due to her distinct lack of a personality, often favouring more developed female characters such as Larxene, Aqua, any of the characters from Disney or Final Fantasy universes, or even Naminé, who is supposed to be a 'clone' of Kairi.


Despite her flaws, Kairi is shipped heavily in the Kingdom Hearts fandom. Common pairings see Kairi shipped with Sora, Riku, Axel, Yuffie and Naminé.

It's not uncommon to see Kairi/Sora/Riku as a threesome, while Kairi/Naminé is effectively a selfcest pairing, and has its fair share of controversy.

Lesser seen pairings involve Kairi being shipped with any of Organization XIII's other members, Leon, and Olette.
