** Or perhaps you're taking him and his nation hostage, as a puppet state.



* Florence's leitmotif is "Nobody's Side," a song about her HeroicBSOD. Elements of the song are common throughout many of her other songs.

** AlternateCharacterInterpretation: Two kings can't even make an effort to attack each other directly, combined with the fact that chess ends with a checkmate rather than the taking of the king, suggests the possibility that it's all a trick, and the [[DystopiaJustifiesTheMeans the real purpose is to keep the other pieces killing each other instead of the kings.]]

* "The Story of Chess" can come off as an IrreleventSong as on the main page, but it indirectly establishes that it's not so much about the game itself, but TheChessmaster in the story who is betraying his brother and manipulating his mother into agreeing with him.

* I was watching Chess: In Concert (2008, London), and the scene where Freddie ambushes Anatoly during an "interview" by demanding to know about his family in Russia was quickly filed under Freddie's asshole file. But later, I was listening to Pity the Child again (I have the Murray Head version on my I-Pod) and it occurred to me that Freddie was probably taking the opportunity to [[CallingTheOldManOut vent his anger at his own father for abandoning him by taking it out on Anatoly.]] Freddie still comes across as a ManipulativeBastard, but [[JerkassWoobie a somewhat more sympathetic one.]] - TimeTravelerJessica

** Also, in the era when chess was invented, playing a game where you won by killing a royal could have been seen as tantamount to a declaration of high treason.

* Why are we not allowed to capture the King? Why do we have to corner the King in a checkmate? Why can't you kill him if your opponent did not notice that his king was in check? Because like in real life, killing the opposing King on a battlefield is not very profitable. It is much more useful to capture him alive and ask for a ransom, thus preventing a new King and getting a huge sum of money.
