She would've been the natural pick for Olympus in 3 (after Auron in 2 and Cloud in 1), but alas...

I was going to respond to your post with "That's because they only ever incorporated new FF characters in a new main title and the only one that came out since 2 was 3, which was by the time Nomura was bitter about FF," but I realized that's not true. Zack was in BbS, after all. Which made me think about what FF character could've been utilized in 3D, for example. I thought it would be interesting if Auron had reappeared in that game in the sleeping realm because, having "faded away" at the end of 2, he had either returned to or become a part of the dream world (sort of relating to Zanarkand being the dream of the fayth in FFX). Come to think of it, they could've also included Jecht as a secret boss in the 3D considering he was from the Zanarkand dream in FFX, too.
Very early on I thought that Lightning was going to be in Olympus in KH3. Hades could have tricked her into believing that he could help Serah if she killed the gods of Olympus. Imagine a fight against Lightning with the titans by her side.

This may be crazy, but I think FFX version of Tidus (not the KH1 version) could have appeared in KH3D. It could have been Tidus' dream interacting with the dream worlds or something. I think the reason they didn't do FF in KH3D is because they went all out with The World Ends With You - which I loved.

Rinoa... she was teased in kh2 and i was hoping she would make a cameo in kh3

She has to be part of a new Final Fantasy quad for Kingdom Hearts IV. Her, Lightning, Balthier, and Sazh would make for a nice group. I could see them as the Final Fantasy characters who reside in The Land of Departure.

She's Squall's love interest.

Let him loose once more.

May he fall from above, screaming about Pi and equations and calling Sora an attogram or whatever.

I don't care if Quadratum Shibuya and TWEWY Shibuya have no connection I just want my math man

I definitely didn't want to see Rinoa (never a fan of that character), but at the same time 2 clearly was setting her up to be shown in the next one. Unfortunately, the long wait between games means most of Nomura's thought process changes by the time he finally gets around to the next one and so many little things like that go nowhere.

I will never understand why Nomura assumed that people didn't want Final Fantasy characters in Kingdom Hearts anymore just because Final Fantasy crossover games became more common.

Did he really think that? I thought it was just in 3D he used The World Ends With You instead of Final Fantasy. Then when KH3 came about he was mad about how they treated him with FF XV and left out the FF characters (still had FF references though).

Is it plausible that the world from FF6 exists in the kh universe and if so is it possible for more characters from that game to appear in kingdom hearts. Also things from Final Fantasy Tactics, FF13 and Type 0 could work. Tactics could be fun and the other two are there because of the whole versus 13 thing.

I genuinely hope they're only included if Nomura actually has a fun idea for them, rather than just ticking a box. It's one of those things where I really only care if they play a role in the actual video game, rather than just appearing in cutscenes and disappearing when you're in control, like the TWEWY gang. Nothing scares me more than a favorite of mine, like Zidane, appearing in KH4 and never actually playing a tangible role in the gameplay. It just seems so pointless to me!

Personally I think the "We had too many characters so there wasn't any space for them" excuse will once again reign supreme
But just with the sheer number of original characters that we have now, it's hard to say what the exact balance is going to be and how it will play out in Kingdom Hearts IV. We can't really give you a firm reply on this just yet

My genius... sometimes it's frightening....
