The Emblem Heartless are Heartless created in Ansem's Lab. According to Secret Ansem's Report 5, They were created by Xehanort using the Pureblood as synthesizing material.They are usually more powerful than normal Heartless and they all bear the Heartless Emblem. They were originally created by Xehanort and possibly the other apprentices.

In Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, it is revealed that "Emblem Heartless" release a Heart when defeated, unlike Pureblood Heartless.

Journal Entry: Evidence of Emblem Heartless

As a start, I have built a device that artificially creates Heartless. By recreating the conditions that spawn the Heartless naturally, I should be able to produce them artificially. This device is the culmination of all my research thus far. The machine's test run successfully created a Heartless.

This may be a step toward creating a heart from nothing. The artificially and naturally created Heartless showed nearly identical traits. But the two types remain distinct for the purpose of the experiment. So, I will mark the ones that are created artificially.
