* What's the point of delivery services like Enzo's if you can just hand stuff to distant people through a vid window, just like Megabyte did when he passed his package to Enzo?

* In "Racing the Clock", we see that the User is invisible due to the game being played in 1st person. This makes sense, as the game wouldn't bother rendering something that isn't shown on the screen. The problem is: Going by this, the User should be invisible in FPS games too. So how are Sprites able to see him and attack him in these games?

* Why did Megabyte need to employ Enzo's Delivery Service to send a bomb to Hex, when he could just have sent it to her through a vid window just like he sent it to Enzo?

** [[spoiler: The bigger question here the guy who has all the original show merchandise and stuff in his house that notes Mainframe has come back online. Does this imply that ''[=ReBoot=]'' was an [[ShowWithinAShow in-universe show]] that was based on an actual computer mainframe? VERA and the others find the actual computer Mainframe originated from behind the scanner in their base. So, LogicBomb much?]]

** [[spoiler: ''The Guardian Code'' addresses this in the 10th episode: Mainframe is actually a mainframe, and the User is playing games directly on the mainframe instead of on a network]]

** My headcanon is that all systems (including Mainframe) take place in a (super)computer's RAM (Random Access Memory), not on the hard drive. So unless the game is always running, there will be beginnings and endings to every User session. Even in building games, the User will eventually get tired or just move on to doing something else. Considering the time scale (and the possibility of multiple users), no wonder games repeat themselves so rarely. The hard drive is also where the backups are kept.

** Because neither Bob nor Mike himself had the faintest idea that Hex had a portal to the Web in her mirror, much less that it might break open? If you absolutely insist on blaming someone besides Megabyte, then blame Daemon-Turbo mentions in a later episode that she was the one who arranged the web creature's coming to Mainframe. If Mike hadn't (again, ''accidentally'') given her the opening she needed, she would almost certainly have found another way.

*** You seem to misunderstand. Say I'm playing Mass Effect. I gun down one group of enemies, then spend one second to readjust my aim. To the billion times faster people, 31 years would pass between gun bursts. To put it in the other side: say a Game lasts 2 hours to the perception of the Sprites. If they live at one billion times our speed, then 0.0000072 seconds would pass for the User. How does the User interact?
