Roxas Abilities: Combat 5, Celerity 5, Samurai 5, Knight 5, Darkness 4, Black Magic 3, White Magic 3 Equipment: Dagger, Sword, Katana, Hat, Bracer, Light Armor, Robe Elements: Holy primary, Dark secondary
Explaination: mostly taken from his appearances in KH2 and Days. He commands the Samurai nobodies, is very fast and Holy is his primary element. He also gets Darkness because he's a Nobody and as such he's capable of traveling through the Corridors of Darkness. Black and White Magic 3 because he has balanced MAG in Days so it's mostly for flavor.
Terra Abilities: Combat 5, Heavy Combat 5, Knight 4->5, Darkness 5 Equipment: Dagger, Sword, Katana, Hammer, Axe, Gun, Hat, Helm, Bracer, Light Armor, Heavy Armor Elements: Earth/Dark primary
Explaination: his elemental affinity and access to 5* Heavy Combat and Darkness are beyond obvious. Knight 4 that can be dived to 5 to give him more Earth options without Aegis Strike which doesn't fit him. Equipment options are the typical "heavy guy" ones, plus gun to reference his Ultima Cannon Shotlock.
Sora Abilities: Combat 5, Celerity 5, Sharpshooter 5, Spellblade 5, Black 5, White 5, Summoner 4 Equipment: Dagger, Sword, Spear, Hammer, Gun, Hat, Shield, Bracer, Light Armor, Heavy Armor, Accessory Elements: Holy/NE
Explanation: Sora has shown to be really powerful through his feats against mighty swordsmen like Sephiroth. Sora is really fast and agile with his Slide Dash attacks so has Celerity 5. Sora's keychains often have elemental varieties so Spellblade 5. All his magic gets upgraded to -Ga level.
Riku Abilities: Combat 5, Darkness 5, Celerity 5, Black 4, Knight 3, Heavy 5 Equipment: Dagger, Sword, Axe, Katana, Hammer, Spear, Hat, Helm, Shield, Bracer, Light Armor, Robe, Heavy Armor, Accessory Elements: Dark/NE
Explanation: Riku is obviously dark because he is constantly trying to fight the darkness in his heart and his struggle against Ansem's grip. He is very strong for a young boy and is surprisingly fast and agile too.
Alladin Abilities: Combat 4, Thief 5, Celerity 5, Support 3 Equipment: Dagger, Sword, Light Armor, Hat, Shield, Bracer Elements: Fire/Wind
Goofy Abilities: Combat 5, Knight 5, Support 4, Celerity 4 Equipment: Shield, Heavy Armor Elements: Earth/NE Explanation: Combat and Knight 5 cause he's captain of the royal knights. Support 4 cause he's soras partner, Celerity 4 cause he does moves that stuns enemies.
Why does everyone's "hypothetical character skillsets" demonstrate that they have no idea how to design balanced characters?
Who said anything about balance? Or have you forgotten about Orlandeu, Cloud and OK? Either way, it's the relics and LD that decide if a character is balanced or not nowdays, which is precisely why I avoided mentioning them. Expansive equipment and ability options nowdays are more of flavor bonuses than anything after a certain thresold. I mean, even if you gave Cloud 5* Black, White and Summon because he could technically cast high level magic in FFVII, what does it matter? He has almost no use for those.
Sora Balanced stat Combat 5, celerity 5, knight 5, spellblade 5, black mage 5, white mage 5, summoner 5 (but all need to be dived to reach 5* like OK) SSB coop with donald/goofy or other KH character BSB brave form/wisdom form USB master form OSB final form
Where is heaven? Above the sky, and below your feet.
