* It may seem weird at first that Watanuki [[spoiler:was born as a replacement of Tsubasa!Syaoran, (the whole "he'll be your parent's son") given how different they are in appearance. Even if, as Fei Wong says, Watanuki looks like a young Clow, normally it would be quite strange for a child to be born with the features of such a distant relative. Yet, Watanuki as Syaoran and Sakura's child makes sense because he ''does'' have a close relative with pale skin and black hair: CCS!Syaoran's mother, Yuelan Li. Also, one of his sisters may have blue eyes as well, which would close the circle as proof that Watanuki's characteristics are indeed in the Li's (even if recessive) genetic pool. We could say that Watanuki is the child that manifests all the recessive traits on his father's side, unlike Tsubasa who had inherited all the dominant traits (brown hair and fair, but not pale, skin: Syaoran and all four of his sisters share these); thus, they are truly "two sides of a coin".]]

* Names are important in this Verse. When they appeared to Yuuko, the only characters who said their real names were Watanuki, Syaoran and while Sakura didn't say her name herself, she was introduced by Syaoran. The real Syaoran, Fai and Kurogane gave fake names. It meant that the first three had no control on their destinies because they were shaped by other while the formers could (and did) seize control on their future.

* When I first read through ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', I figured the second promise [[spoiler:Kurogane]] talks about in Chapter 134 is just [[spoiler:to stay with [[TrueCompanions the gang]] and help find Cloney, blah blah blah]]. It was only much later that I realized that's not it at all; the new promise is really [[spoiler:to take responsibility for Fay's life and [[HoYay stay by his side]] to give him the blood he needs to survive. (Notice he only confirms that he would stay with the group after Fay says he will.) After Kurogane says this, Sakura and Mokona give him almost questioning looks, but Fay looks down sadly he understands exactly what Kurogane is talking about]].

** Actually, "elder prince" implies that Yui and Fai had an older brother. The "younger prince" would have been the two of them. The king, however, was indeed their uncle.

** Actually, [[spoiler: "elder prince" implies that Yui and Fai had an older brother.brother, as one cannot have a prince without having a king (or queen, but in that case the "elder prince" would have immediately been made king going by traditional royal heir shenanigans). The "younger prince" would have been the two of them. The king, however, was indeed their uncle.]]

* In Fai's backstory, [[spoiler:it says that the elder prince looked forward to their birth. It also says that the twins' mother and father (the younger prince) died. That means that the ruler who imprisoned Yuui and Fai was their own uncle.]]

* This only seems to work in hindsight, since [[YukiKajiura Kajiura]] would have had no real idea what twists the plot would take at the point when the anime adaptation was begun, especially since it's one of the first tracks that plays in the anime as a whole, but A Song of Storm and Fire applies to [[spoiler: both Syaorans.]] The [[spoiler: original uses wind magic almost exclusively, and the clone prefers to use fire over everything else, both with Hien and Fai's eye.]] It's a literal song of Storm ( [[spoiler: The original Syaoran]]) and Fire ( [[spoiler: the clone.]] ), especially when they end up battling each other in [[spoiler: the world of dreams.]]

* In the early days of the manga, I kept wondering why [[TheDragon Kyle Rodart]] looked so much like [[{{xxxholic}} Watanuki]]. Much later, I realized that it's intentional, [[spoiler: Kyle is a clone of Syaoran, just like Watanuki]].

* In volume 24 we have a visit to the shop that was illustrated with the same angles and lines as the first chapter of ''xxxHolic'' as a big foreshadowing to the revelation that [[spoiler:the original Syaoran and Watanuki share the same role.]]

* The anime ''didn't'' cast MotokoKumai and Creator/SakuraTange in the lead roles, despite reusing the same voice actors between in-universe counterparts. Fandom was rather annoyed at this at the time. [[spoiler:But, as it turns out in the manga, they aren't really AlternateUniverse counterparts of the lead couple of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''...]]

* In RGVeda it was established that a ThirdEye represents "sins even a demon wouldn't commit", so I was really confused when the Ashura statue in the country of Shara had one. But just now I remembered that he wished for Yasha to come back from the dead. Perhaps in the original timeline of that world (before Syaoran and co. mucked it up), this wish led him to doing something that messed with the natural order of things, hence the extra eye.

**[[spoiler:Well, they become true alternate counterparts once they reincarnate. Their originals, the two Tsubasa - one of which is their son - count too, which gets confusing...]]
