A Match Made in Hell is a Kingdom Hearts fanfiction written by Ri2, the individual responsible for Latias' Journey and Brave New World, about the wacky hijinks during the marriage of Pete and Maleficent...

Anyway, the story begins with the Epilogue of Kingdom Hearts II, with Sora, Kairi, and Riku (who, by the way, have to share their minds and bodies with Roxas, Namine, and Xehanort's Heartless, respectively) getting a letter from King Mickey which asks them to come to his castle to act as a representative of a newly-formed confederation of worlds...

But the letter was a fake. It was a trick to get them to let the world barrier down so Maleficent could blackmail the trio into attending her wedding.

Contains, among other things:

  • Mickey Mouse trying to set up an alliance of worlds with Sora's help.
  • Pete and Xenahort competing for the right to be Maleficant's groom.
  • Back at Destiny Islands, Tidus, Wakka, Chapau, Yuna, Rikku, and Paine fight Yiazmat, alien invaders and a giant robot toilet.
  • A ridiculously long Mecha fight with the cast of Final Fantasy VII dressed as Power Rangers.

It's more complicated than described here, believe it or not. Read it here.

Tropes used in A Match Made in Hell (fanfic) include:
  • The Alliance: King Mickey's plan is to gather together some of the guests at the wedding to organise a coalition of heroes to oppose Maleficent. Unfortunately, it falls apart because Simba is too suspicious of humans to participate, Leon is in the middle of a Heroic BSOD over his inability to defend his world, Zeus is more interested in having sex with Anything That Moves and Oberon refuses to join unless Mickey hands over every fairy in the universe to him. And then goes nuts and stuff.
  • Anything That Moves: Zeus. He's trying to outdo Satan.
    • And possibly Roxas.

"Heh, I like that. The return of Roxas, last of the dread Organization XIII! Er, next to Zexion, that is. May the universe tremble before me as I shatter worlds and take all the hot babes and guys to my bed! Bwahahahahaha!... What? I was joking! Sorta."

"Now, my dawg Pete here, she likes him more than I think she's liked any man… BUT…he is kind of a wuss. Then again, she seems to like that in a man, for some reason. She likes feeling superior to 'em…and that's easier to do with a lackey than an equal."

  • Where Are They Now? Epilogue: One that extends through three ridiculously long chapters, ranging from funny to melancholy, but covers just about every character.
  • Worthy Opponent: Gilgamesh wants to fight Sora to claim his keyblade (he already has several keyblades, but he wants the original one for his collection).
  • Xanatos Gambit: Satan allows Oberon to banish him and his demons to avoid his attack that incapacitates most of the magic-powered wedding guests and to trick Oberon into thinking he's not a threat, so he can send his minions to Avalon and cart all of Oberon's children off to Hell. Xanatos himself is mentioned but he doesn't actually appear.
