* 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...]]

* The reason FWR found Fai and Yuui was because [[spoiler: real!Fai wished for death in the tower]] and that FWR fufilled his wish while at the same time making it seem like they really had a choice in the matter when [[spoiler:he asked them who should be the one to die so the other could live.]]
* FridgeBrilliance: Mokona's [[TranslatorMicrobes powers]] are the only thing that allows the characters from different worlds to communicate with each other, and only work when they're all near him. So why, when they split up in Outo country can they still talk to each other, and the other people in Outo? [[spoiler:Why of course, because Outo is actually a RPG made to be played be people from different worlds and has it's own translation circuit]]

* Most fans agree the casting was rather spot on.
* Creator/AyaHisakawa did return to her role as Kero from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' in the anime.

**** Doesn't this only apply if we assume that [[spoiler:Tsubasa obtained all the memories of C!Sakura!mom's entire existence? I just assumed it was only of original Clone!Sakura up until the point where she died. Did it state whether or not she inherited Reincarnated mom's memories? If you mean when she absorbed the last feather, I felt like that was more like absorbing her essence/soul type thing like with [[KingdomHearts Kari/Nami]] rather than obtaining her full set of memories. I cannot imagine how squicky it would be only to see your clone's travels, and than there new life as your crushes mom, than remembering several years of being trapped/frozen for years (abit willingly), and than being freed only to get adsorbed (ded pretty much) shortly after before getting to greet your son and original self.]]
