It makes sense that the last piece is Riku Replica because his identity was based off of Riku when he was being influence by darkness, namely Maleficent, with the design of the piece being reminiscent of Maleficent's dragon features. "X" could also be a seashell, which is what Xion left behind when she disappeared, and "XI" bears more resemblance to the guard of Master Xehanort's Keyblade (which Terra-Xehanort wields) than it does Vexen's shield.

It's obvious Nomura wanted to keep the identity of some of the Seekers of Darkness a secret from eagle-eyed fans deciphering the opening cinematic and subsequent chess scenes between Eraqus and Xehanort, leading him to design vague and symbolic pieces that might fit a couple characters. Story-wise, it could be the uncertainty of future events, meaning not everything is predictable to Master Xehanort.

I've been of the opinion that X is Xion's piece since it bears more resemblance to her final form helmet than anything belonging to Demyx. Since Demyx contributed absolutely nothing to the Seekers, it made sense that he'd be the one not represented.

THANK YOU! I have been trying to get proper images of the pieces for so long! It's interesting that some of the designs are similar to designs we've seen in Twilight Town.

I think they're referencing this. In the screenshot for the chess pieces in production you can kind of make out a piece that looks like Xion's crown.
Huh, completely forgot about those. Nice to get confirmation at least.

Thanks to you and Antifa for the follow up, the rest of y'all were completely unhelpful :p
