I never understood who they were or what they were supposed to accomplish. I get that they were supposed to be Roxas's friends, but beyond that, they seemed to try to make them out to be these super important characters to the plot. In reality, they disappear completely after the prologue, and I'm not even sure what their relevance was during the prologue. You could have taken these characters out (along with Seifer, Fuu, Rai, Setzer, and Vivi) and nothing really would have changed. You would never be left wondering why a character wasn't included for those gaps, so why did Square Enix come up with them?

Hayner, Pence and Olette are Disney characters original to KHII though, right?

I always imagine that they wanted to use other characters but kinda thought twice when the Final Fantasy count built up too high. So it was maybe meant to be Zell, Larsa and Penelo or something.

Maybe. I don't know. They were a little bit lame, really. Good characters, but every time they showed up the story seemed to goooooo slooooooww...

I just think they were characters specifically invented to be Roxas's friends. It was alright to make his rivals FF characters, but they wanted his friends to be original characters, because it made for a tighter parallel to Sora (who also has original friends, and then a group of characters in his friend circle one ring out who are FF characters).
Talking about skull****ing someone's mom because he happens to prefer the PS3 over the 360 does not paint us in the best light as a group.
