** Speaking of people who can reclass into Wyvern Riders: both Frederick and Sully have access to that class, despite neither of them having a connection to Valm (unlike Lon'qu, Virion, Say'ri, Cherche, and [[spoiler:Yen'fay]]), any affinity for dragons (Nowi and Tiki are dragons themselves, and Panne can communicate with other animals), or any other flight-based classes ([[spoiler:Aversa]]). I couldn't understand why those two even had that class...until I remembered that they both have supports with Virion, who is from the continent of Valm, with its large wyvern population. (And the Virion/Sully pairing is even fairly popular) [[HilariousInHindsight It's a sort of Fridge Funny to imagine that Virion just up and decided to teach a couple of his friends how to ride dragons one fine day.]]

* Back before factories and refineries only nobility coul really afford candy due to the production involved (and that it was often brought through Middle Eastern trade). So Gaius trading loyalty for sweets isn't just a gag - it really ''is'' worth it to him.
* Chrom's name is a few letters away from spelling out ''Chrom''osome, which is a term used when discussing the topic of DNA. Recall what the major plot point of this game is.

** Not to mention, this "theory" stinks of trying to make the [[IronWoobie actually remarkably strong despite all the crap they went through]] future children into poor little broken woobies who to project mommy/daddy-like feelings on. VideoGameCaringPotential has its limits, you know.



* A rather obvious one, but why is Olivia the first Dancer to be competently armed, apart from defying the SpoonyBard trope? It's possible she's ethnic Feroxi, and even if she's not, proud Feroxi kahn Basilio adopted her. Either way, the culture would demand she be at least competent with a sword. The real brilliance is the way this affects her dancing - she's so good because learning to handle a weapon with her slight frame helped her develop an amazing sense of balance, a huge boon for a dancer.

* Panne can become a Wyvern Rider. Yarne cannot. Considering his [[CowardlyLion personality]] and the [[BadFuture bad future]] he came from, Yarne's probably too scared of dragons to ever dare to ride one.

** [[spoiler: Anankos attempts something very similar to this in the DLC of ''Fates'', drawing power from multiple versions of himself in different timelines.]]

*** Ricken got the drop on her. Aversa probably sensed wind magic out of nowhere, forgot herself and panicked for a moment. She calms down by her next spoken line, but it was enough of a distraction for Ricken and Maribelle to haul tail out of there.

* Gregor and Cordelia's supports involve him helping her trying to get Chrom's attention, up to Cordelia misinterpreting something and deciding to [[ItMakesSenseInContext launch her love with a "surprise attack"]]. She does this by jumping out of a bush at him wearing a Risen mask. This ineptitude is played for laughs... but it's possible for this to happen before the timeskip, when Chrom recently had his life saved from an assassin who sprang out of the bushes at him. Cordelia might have been within a heartbeat of being skewered.

*** Additionally, one of Lucina's goals was to prevent Emmeryn's death. She actually accomplishes this - because in her timeline, Emmeryn was assassinated - likely by people who made ''sure'' she was dead. Instead, she falls off a cliff. [[spoiler: and receives brain damage from the fall.]]

*** Not ''that'' surprising when we consider Gangrel's backstory [[spoiler: as a SelfMadeMan who rose from the slums of Plegia to the throne]]. It's likely that they admired how he reached the top despite all odds against him.

** Well, ''Fates'' confirms something about Pegasus. In Selena [[spoiler:read:Severa]] and Subaki's supports has ''this'' regarding why Pegasus Knights in Awakening are female-only:
-->'''Selena''': Did I mention that they also said you were arrogant beyond measure? How could a brash man like yourself ever tame a pegasus? Generally, they only allow the most purehearted maidens to ride them.
-->'''Subaki''': What ever do you mean? Oh, you must be talking about the breed of pegasi from your country. They're considerably different from ours.
-->'''Selena''': Really? Is that true?
-->'''Subaki''': They're similar, but they are different breeds entirely. The pegasi of Hoshido and falicorns of Nohr don't mind men. They'll let anyone ride them, whether or not they're female. I'm surprised you didn't know that. It should be written in any basic tactical manual for new recruits.
