* After Giygas's death, his race makes no further attempts to invade earth, unless, what if after becoming the [[EldritchAbomination swirling red abomination he is now]], [[GenocideFromTheInside he murdered his own species?]]

* Another observation regarding the robot bodies the Chosen Four occupy. During the final boss fight, [[spoiler:Giygas' battle music is more or less [[HellIsThatNoise static]] that is even more distorted as the fight progresses. Given the above example, it can also be interpreted as the audio input in the robot bodies picking up whatever bizarre signals Giygas gives off and outputs that into what we, the player, are hearing through the characters. It makes sense that during the beginning of the fight we hear beeping. The second and middle sections when Giygas starts to undulate can be interpreted as an increase in signals, hence more chaotic that the incomprehensible droning. The last section of the fight is even more [[SoundtrackDissonance ear-splitting]] because both Giygas has lashed out and the robot heroes have taken heavy damage.]]

** Then imagine the shock and terror when Kumatora learns that Fassad, the cruel, abusive, manipulative mastermind that was killed just a little bit before, turns out to be [[spoiler: a traitor, too. His true identity is revealed to be Locria, the last Magypsy, and one of Kumatora's caregivers as a child.]] Imagine not only the sadness, but the betrayal she must have felt after all that.

* This is most likely unintentional, as it's unlikely that Itoi could have planned ''that'' far ahead, but you never know: The slogan for MOTHER is "No Crying Until the End". The game is emotional for an NES game sure, but still, it can feel a little out of place. But maybe, just maybe, it's referring to the end as in, ''[[MotherThree the end]]''.

* Remember the bells in Tazmily Village, and how [[spoiler:they prevented the villagers' memories of the old destroyed world from reverting? Well, Leder isn't ringing the bell anymore. All those memories are coming back. And if you've read ''TheGiver'', you know what that's like.]]

* While the soundtrack borrows tunes and riffs from all sorts of sources from past games and beyond, there's exactly one song from outside the world of MOTHER that's totally unchanged from its source: [[spoiler:"Leder's Gymnopedie", which plays over the story of how humans left the outside world behind and came to the Nowhere Islands, as told by the only person left who remembers that outside world]].

* '''All the final boss fights.''' In each of the games, despite the fact that you pretty much beat the crap out of all your enemies prior to the final boss battles with baseball bats, guns, [[ArsonMurderAndJaywalking frying pans]], and PsychicPowers, the actual final boss isn't like that at all.

* Towards the end of Chapter 1, when Flint and Alec meet the Magypsies and they tell them that [[spoiler: Claus showed up not too long earlier, and they directed him to where the Drago Plateau was]], Aeolia mentions how they taught him a "very powerful PSI Technique" before he left, and that he wouldn't be able to use it very easily. Now, upon replay and knowing that [[spoiler: Claus after this becomes the Masked Man who can use PK Love and pull the needles]], you might be inclined to believe this very powerful PSI technique [[spoiler: Claus]] learned was PK Love, since it s a very strong move and something only he and one other person can use. But if you think deeper into it, Ionia and the other Magypsies made a big deal about the fact that Lucas could learn PK Love to begin with, as not even they can use that PSI technique, and they realized it signaled that [[spoiler: people who could pull their needles had finally appeared to fulfill the prophecy.]] Yet, Aeolia says it very casually, as if what she taught [[spoiler: Claus]] was something than any of the Magypsies were capable of. So, what other PSI does he have later on that is known for being very powerful? He has his Infamous One Hit KO Thunder attack, which is something not even Kumatora was taught. (It's implied with Kumatora that extremely powerful PSI techniques like that were not taught to her because they were dangerous and difficult to master.) And like Aeolia said, the technique [[spoiler: Claus]] learns is something he wouldn't be able to use very easily, and was something they were able to teach to him and unlike Kumatora, didn't have any qualms about doing so, as they clearly didn't care for his life and how he was so willing to throw it away for revenge. So, it's not a stretch to say that the move that Aeolia taught [[spoiler: Claus]] and by extension, The Masked Man, was his powerful Thunder technique.
** Further evidence to prove this is, when Lucas has his PSI awakened in Chapter 4, Ionia never teaches him how to use PK Love, Lucas just automatically unlocks the capability to use it once he awakens to his power. So, if the way [[spoiler: Claus]] learned PK Love was similar to Lucas's, then he would've automatically unlocked the power of PK Love once he was awakened to his Psychic potential as well, and wouldn't have been something that Aeolia could've taught to him. Which only leaves the Thunder technique as for what she could've taught [[spoiler: Claus.]]
