It seems as though that Eraqus, Xehanort, Ansem, Yen Sid and recently Odin seem to be somewhat ineffectual in the series. Ansem and Yen Sid were wrong about the Nobodies being emotionless beings with no hearts. Eraqus jumped the gun in zeal to destroy the darkness. Master Xehanort was right about balance but wrong in how he approached it. Odin died before we knew what was going on. I wonder if Nomura is trying to say something with these characters? Or is this a small step in some larger plan?
