Just for fun, I thought it will be nice to think about it (eventhough KH3 is still in development). Anyways, give you thought in as well and IF the newer enemy will exist, give em' name. Anything goes for it.

Maybe the newer one will be "Anybody" that come from people who has straying light. or so the setting. XfNot sure what kinda enemy I'd like to see though....
You're saying... Beat up and murder actual living characters as a regular thing?New enemy will come around the corner, you see. And like you say, this time maybe it's come from RoL. Xehanort lifespan will end at KH3, with that said the darkness may reside in heart without being disturbed but I maybe wrong. And another thing is, with Xehanort gone, Disney villain may take his place, and again I maybe wrong.

I'm pretty sure heartless will stay around, they're too iconic not to.
They likely will. It's just a pipedream of mine to see every enemy associated with Xehanort die with him. I wouldn't bank on nobodies being big though. Nobodies are rare and few in contrast to heartless which are basically without countable number. The nobodies also require motive to be enemies since they think and plan on a human level. The heartless just mindlessly attack.i don't see the heartless leaving until the very end of the series tbh. as yen sid and goofy explained, the only way to actually get rid of them completely would be to fill everyone's hearts with light. that seems like endgame stuff for the series, likely accomplished by opening kingdom hearts and restoring the world to how it was before the keyblade war.
and if the heartless are still around, so are the nobodies.
