** Alternatively, in the English version Giygas is stated to be carrying out his invasion from the ''distant'' past. Considering EarthboundBeginnings takes place no more than a decade before Earthbound, this means that Giygas traveled likely traveled back in time to the past and performed a RetGone that erased his defeat by Ninten from history.

** There's not really anything to suggest that they're direct sequels or even part of the same universe other than recycling the villain's name. There are no recurring characters, no cameos, no plot links, no cross references, not one thing tying one game to the other. No reference is ever made to Giygas's past, either. A lot of fan theories assume they're tied together somehow or that Giygas at least is the same character, but you may be surprised by how little evidence of that you'll find in-game.

** Interestingly, no gameplay/story segregation need take place. She starts with PSI Freeze alpha, more than enough to dispatch a low tier enemy or level 1 character, but nowhere near enough to one shot Carpainter. She seemingly has the Franklin Badge, but his basic physical deals more than enough damage to deplete all of her health in one go, so he has no need to even use the Crashing Boom Bang attack. In story terms, she could probably defeat an ordinary kidnapper, but Carpainter is apparently empowered by the Mani Mani (where else is he getting PSI Thunder beta?) and hence was capable of overpowering her. To say nothing about the advantage of numbers, who knows how many cultists assisted. By contrast, Ness goes in fully armed, forewarned about his powers and carrying the exact tool that reflects them, and with some considerable combat experience, after having bashed his way through the throng of cultists to face Carpainter alone.

** Probably to give Summers more relevance to the overall plot as not much happens there besides Poo's introduction and joining.

** Probably to give Summers more relevance to the overall plot as not much happens there besides Poo's introduction and joining. And the other events that do happen there (the magic cake and the hieroglyphs at the museum) involve Poo anyway.

** Fourside was relatively long, whereas Summers was short in comparison, so having Poo's introduction and joining happen there seemed more appropriate.

** Fourside was relatively long and filled with plot already, whereas Summers was short in comparison, so having Poo's introduction and joining happen there seemed more appropriate. Also, it allowed a break in-between the fifth and sixth sanctuaries by having Poo join after Fourside.

** Fourside was relatively long and filled with plot already, whereas Summers was short and empty in comparison, with Poo's introduction and joining pretty much being the only important things to happen there.
