* 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.

** 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.

** Never mind Lucas. You're the Masked Man, you know the needle score is three on three, you've reached the final needle before Lucas does and you know he's on his way. What the fuck are you waiting for?

** It may be that he uses his bad leg to kick, which opens up another question. Also, why can he fall a painful height and [[ThreePointLanding land perfectly]] without excruciating pain shooting straight up his leg?

* Being masked doesn't necessarily require that you have a literal mask; anything that blocks the face from view even partially is masking it. It also helps that he's using a helmet too since [[spoiler: Claus' orange hair would be a dead giveaway.]]
