As some of you know Dragon quest is also a square enix property so that could make the series more likely to show up in Kingdom Hearts... what are your guy's thoughts on this and what game do you think they would add? I think characters from DQ8 would fit well.

Akira Toriyama's art style is drastically different from Nomura's. I'm not against the inclusion, I just think that there's not much point in adding Dragon Quest characters when there's a lack of Final Fantasy representation outside of VII, VIII and X in Kingdom Hearts.

DQ as a whole is a really fun and (most of the time) light-hearted series of games, at least when compared to Final Fantasy's more gritty and serious stories. I definitely wouldn't mind seeing it in KH, would mix very well with Disney's overall tone. 3, 7 and 8 I think have the most fitting characters.

The big issues here, I think, are its artstyle (same issue as with getting Chrono Trigger in KH, Akira Toriyama doesn't mesh well with everything), the fact that its many and varied monsters play a very important role in the series which would be hard to translate into KH (you CANNOT have anything DQ without at least slimes and drackies, though I guess FF in KH has made it this far without chocobos so who knows), and the fact that Nomura might pull the good ol' "I don't feel comfortable working with characters I didn't design" rhetoric that he used back before he worked on Dissidia.

I'd kill to see Alena or Yangus in KH, really.

See, I do love Akira Toriyama's artstyle, but I doubt it'd "fit" into the KH game, especially because both series have very different artstyles.
Other than that... I wouldn't really be against it.

To be fair though, the Final Fantasy characters have very different art styles from the Disney characters, so that shouldn't be a problem. But anyway I actually hope that I never see Dragon Quest in Kingdom Hearts, because they made the Final Fantasy characters in the Kingdom Hearts games way too different from their Final Fantasy counterparts.

I would actually be OK if they included DQ characters into the KH franchise if they treated them like most FF characters, cameo appearances in certain world where they are different to their original FF version.

It would be interesting to see the DQ Slimes running their own business like the Moogles do.....there could even be competition between the two companies, leading to comedic situations in their competition against each other.

Nomura has redesigned other artists creations before to make a consistent familiarity between models, so it wouldn't be the first time or that hard of a stretch. TWEWY's supermodel thin, angular characters fit (depending on who you ask) and there's obviously no need to mention the array of Disney art direction.

Maybe, but if that happens wouldnt that mean all the shounen Jump anime are in the same universe as KH.

Dragon Quest is Square Enix first. To my knowledge, only the manga with Dai or whatever is created by Shōnen Jump.
