Let's say that, hypothetically, Maleficient managed to subdue Ventus in BBS. When Xehanort extricated the darkness (Vanitas) from Ven, it made Ven's heart devoid of darkness, pure light.

Because of this, could Ven's heart have been used, along with the other PoH, to open Hollow Bastion's keyhole in KHI?

I kind of doubt it tbh. While every PoH has a heart of pure light, not everyone with a heart of pure light is a "PoH". The PoH are special for not entirely classified reasons besides their pure hearts, or of those being that they're incorruptible. There's something about their hearts in particular that keeps them from being tainted by darkness, and if the old fairytales are anything to go by, everyone used to have pure hearts until the darkness came.

Up till now, completing HB's Keyhole and opening the DtD has been a very PoH-centric thing, unlike MX's plan to create a substandard X-Blade for example. It only required a heart of pure light and darkness but nothing was said about needing a "PoH" though one probably could have been an option.

Why does everyone assume Ven has PoH powers? His pure light nature isn't even natural.

The way I see it is the Princesses are pure of heart naturally from birth due to their status as a Princess of Heart. Not that they are PoH because they are pure.

Just the quote on the screen.

From a certain point of view, it seems like the PoH had the purest of hearts because their hearts were completely devoid of all darkness. Before BBS, only PoH were known to have hearts that contained no darkness.

Then in BBS, Ven's heart seems to match the same description.

However, you two raised important points about the PoH's special nature. For instance, I cannot imagine Ven as being able to recreate the worlds; according to KHI, the PoH rebuilt the lost worlds iirc.

The PoH are the purest of hearts. However it's never said that they are special or hold special powers because of that fact alone. They could very well be pure because of that status instead of the other way around.

That's just how I look at it anyway. These 7 are born like that, naturally, while Ven was just some normal kid who was the victim of a crazed old man ripping his darkness out of him. Ven isn't natural and even if his darkness is gone from his heart it still exists as Vanitas. The darkness didn't vanish from Ven, it just changed form.

PoH lack darkness in any shape or form naturally from the get go.
