* Is Kumatora a girl? I know most people use 'her' and 'she', but thing is... she's raised by the Magypsees. And her design does looks a bit gender neutral.

** Being raised by the Magypsies is [[FridgeBrilliance likely the very reason she looks so gender-neutral]].

* Can of worms time: Why is Fassad Arab? These are the Nowhere Islands, there's no Middle East, there's no Scaraba, just a desert unreachable from any point in the game that smacks of a last-minute disconnected design area, [[spoiler: and given that Fassad is a Magypsy he can't be one of the people Porky imported in.]] It's not the pun -- that was the localization, his original name was Yokuba. His being [[spoiler: Locria]] doesn't clear anything up -- some people have suggested that it's a reference to [[spoiler: the Locrian mode]] being considered Middle Eastern, but it's not -- that's [[spoiler: the Phrygian mode]]. The only explanation left is that he's supposed to play upon the trope of the suspicious if not downright evil foreign peddler coming into a village and corrupting it, which has, to say the least, UnfortunateImplications.

** [[WMG?{{MOTHER3}} There've been theories that the Dr. Andonuts we see here is actually Jeff from the previous game]]. They share the same last name after all, being family.

** The other Magypsies aren't troubled at all by the prospect of fading away. Why would Locria be any different?

*** Not to mention traumatized from the trip on the island. Which probably got a hell of a lot more traumatizing once Claus ''actually'' showed up.

** Who says he knew Alpha? Aeolia just gave him "a powerful PSI technique," she didn't say which one, and if it was Alpha she'd probably be a lot more impressed.

** No one said it was the same [[spoiler: Saturn Valley]], or that the Pigmasks used the [[spoiler: Mr. Saturns]] to make technology. They only needed them to tell them where the [[spoiler: Needle]] is.

**StoryAndGameplaySegregation is all I can think of. That or he was going easy on you.



**(During the fight with the Pork Tank) "The Pigmask threw a cannonball!" (cannonball hits Salsa, Salsa screeches) "The Pigmask threw a cannonball!" (cannonball hits Pork Tank)



* Why the fuck is [[spoiler: Saturn Valley]] here, considering [[spoiler: EarthBound didn't take place on the Nowhere Islands]]? Come to think of it, why are [[spoiler: the Mr. Saturns]] here at all? Why couldn't [[spoiler: Dr. Andonuts]] make all the necessary stuff himself, or the other researchers?

** Claus "only" hit Flint with PK Love Omega. Maybe the massive bolt of lightning was way more powerful.
