Keyblades are tied to the specific person's heart, right? So how come these dead ones don't just disappear into nothing when their wielders die?

I'm not sure we've ever seen a Keyblade disappear when its wielder died. The closest we ever saw was the Keyblade of Heart, and that didn't disappear because its wielder died; it disappeared because the hearts that comprised it were returned to their owners.

This doesn't really answer the question of why the Keyblades in the KG didn't disappear, but it does mean that they aren't acting unusually. It does seem intuitive that Keyblades "should" disappear when their owners die, but apparently, for whatever reason, they don't.

Probably a symbolic gesture akin to "leaving their mark on the world" only something to do with a part of their heart living on despite their body perishing.

These blades weren't broken, they were just left and became empty. No longer keyblades, just pieces of metal.

Keyblades are left behind when a wielder dies.

It happened with Eraqus (which got picked up by Aqua), and again in KH3 with Xehanort (which got picked up by Luxu).

It just always seemed weird to me because we know that the keyblade chooses the wielder in the end, inheritance ceremony or not. But I guess that doesn't have to mean they need to stick with their owner forever even beyond death.

these dead keyblades are from the wielders from the KHX storyline. serving as the remains of wielders who couldn't cooperate with each other in their unions which became the keyblade war. Cause all of them weren't masters or near that level. they couldn't past down their keyblade to another. thus the battlefield of the war became a graveyard.

the sad thing is no heartless or nobodies were created, kingdom hearts open after the war taking all of the hearts of the wielders.

I was going to say this too, given that I just played through that section earlier today.

No one dies in Kingdom Hearts. They'll all be back eventually.
