It may seem weird at first that Watanuki 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".

** Yuko apperas to find Tanpopo's form ''appropriate'' once she sees it for the first time. The little bird was born thanks to Watanuki's wish to make Himawari happy. He literally gave something of ''himself'' (i.e. his symbol) to her.

* Back in Volume two, when Yuko had folded a butterfly to track someone, she mentioned that if it had to travel farther, it would need to become a bird. The symbols that represent Yuko and Watanuki, a butterfly and a bird respectively. Watanuki isn't just a replacement of Yuko, he's her successor through and through, and one day he'll be more powerful than she ever was.

* After reading the last chapter of ''Manga/XxxHolic'', something hit me in relation to the symbols Yuko and Watanuki used to represent themselves, a butterfly and bird respectively. Back in the volume two, when Yuko had folded a butterfly to track someone, she mentioned that it could also become a bird if it had to travel farther. Meanwhile, in the completely different Creator/{{Clamp}} series Manga/{{Chobits}} from years back, Zima ends that series mentioning that children were meant to surpass their parents. Watanuki isn't meant to just be a cheap replacement- He may not be Yuuko's son, but he's her successor through and through, and one day he'll be more powerful than she ever was. Also, Clamp is ''really'' big on keeping track of their multiverse's rules. Tropers/{{Zashiki-Warashi}}
** Something hit me as I was reading this; Tanpopo. The little bird that Watanuki hatched and gave to Himawari.[[{{Shipping}} Regardless of your ship]] Watanuki gave something of ''himself'', (i.e. his symbol) to her in the hopes of making her happy.
** When the series gained the tagline "Rou" (meaning "cage") it was obvious that it referred to how the shop had become a cage that Watanuki was trapped in... but then he ''really'' became "the bird in a cage" when he decided the bird would be his symbol.

* The FacelessMasses. The fact that people outside of the main cast and Yuuko's customers are always depicted this way [[spoiler: foreshadows that Watanuki can't remember the faces of anyone else. ''This is how he literally sees them''.]]
