** Strangely enough, both Ganondorf and Alexandra fit rather than Link and Alexandra. While the latter two are heroes, for the former it's due to the [[BookEnds contrast and comparison that the two have]], with Ganondorf usually causing the problems while Alexandra fixes them and how they both write the histories of others, with [[spoiler:them both]] causing 3 timelines due to their actions. Meanwhile, Link mixes with Pious due to the fact that their fates were already writen, [[YouCantFightFate and how they are doomed to repeat it]] [[spoiler:within the 3 timelines.]]

** Going further with the color coding, the Ancients (Chattur'gha, Ulyaoth, Xel'lotath, and Manatorok) mix with the colors of another bunch of people - [[TheLegendOfZelda the hylian Goddesses (Din, Nayru, and Farore).]] At first, this doesn't fit regarding both Xel'lotath and Farore, who are beings of Sanity and Courage, respectively. That is, unless you regard the fact of that both are similar within their meanings. Even more, Majora doesn't have the Temporal capability like what Manatorok had...but more rather the fact that they were both within a nearly dead state and caused plenty of issues towards both the [[TheLegendOfZeldaMajorasMask the Skull Kid]] and Alexandra. As for his Temporal power and benevolence, it fits alongside [[HyruleWarriors Cia]], who alongside Majora, is purple.

* A certain Sanity-effect let's the head of a character explode, and if picked up it recites Hamlets famous "To be or not to be"-scene, in which he thinks about suicide. This enforces the theme of the game itself. The player can either go through the game the easy way and stop or go on and finish it with all the problems that have to come, including the sanity-effect.

* In Max's voiceover for Ulyaoth Bonethives, he says "Those creatures inhabit the bodies of men and women... exorcising the human soul and replacing it with their own putrid spirits," but for Xel'lotath Bonethives, he says that they "[Secret] madness inside our very heads, while our souls are pushed into the corners of our skulls... watching as our hands do tasks that we have no control over!" This makes sense, as Ulyaoth Bonethives have no need for the persons former soul, but being aware while possessed can drive you insane, perfect for Xel'lotath (presumably Chattur'gha Bonethives discard the soul like Ulyaoth's do). But it makes sense in another way to: Unlike the other two varieties, Xel'lotath Bonethives don't have heads, meaning that the head, and therefore the brain, of the victim does not get replaced.

* In Peter's chapter you come across a room with an unfinished letter that hasn't been touched in a long time "as though its user suddenly turned away and never returned." One could guess the writer was another victim of the Black Guardian, but in all appearances, it seems they left on their own accord without bothering to finish the letter first. It's likely a bonethief snuck up on the letter writer and possessed them, then, not caring about its host's letter, simply got up and abandoned it.

Added DiffLines:

* In Peter's chapter, the guard stationed at the organ says that he is determined that the organ remain undamaged so long as he is alive. After the lights go out and the monsters attack, there is a rifle on the alter "probably discarded by a fleeing guard." Of the four guards you see before this point, one is called away and two lie dead by their stations, but the one by the organ is nowhere to be seen, implying he is the one that fled. Guess he wasn't willing to protect the organ with his life after all.

* It takes Michael a while to get the Tome of Eternal Darkness, much longer than any of the other characters. Furthermore, his character was originally envisioned as being a Gulf War soldier, whose gear eventually is taken by the Michael we know. This could be taken to mean that Mantorok ''did'' plan for the soldier to be his Chosen for that chapter, but he was killed before the Tome and the Ancients' essences could be passed on to him, and Mantorok assumed Michael would soon succumb to the monsters within the Forbidden City. But Roberto gave Edwards the essences out of desperation, and he pressed on... and kept pressing on... and by the time he completed the Staff of Ra puzzle, he had shown himself to be resourceful enough to be entrusted with the mission to stop the Ancients, thereby being warped to the Tome's hallway.

** WordOfGod confirmed that the yellow color was for a fifth Ancient that was cut from the final game. They just repurposed his/her color as a generic, non-aligned color.

* Out of all the characters in the game, the ones with the lowest sanity are Peter Jacob and Michael Edwards. Why? Peter is struggling through UsefulNotes/WorldWarOne, while Michael Edwards is experiencing Gulf War Syndrome.
