* We can infer from context that anyone killed by someone from another world has their soul go to that world. Hence, a normal human sent to another world would technically be a World Eater in that world... but they wouldn't be hugely powerful. The "World Eaters" that we're used to thinking of are powerful beings who were further empowered and twisted by Gamma, Joules, and Drazil; that empowerment doesn't actually have anything to do with them being World Eaters.

* Trish's like that because the party was too late in saving her from Hawthorne, who in the Normal Story is revealed to have done the same thing to several other girls, raping and then murdering them on or just after their 17th birthday. The party got there to save her from the killing, but were too late on the rape. She basically went through what [[spoiler:Caska]] went through in {{Berserk}} in a somewhat lesser degree.

[[WMG: What's with DeathIsCheap in this game?]]
It's really inconsistent when it comes to gods. Sorting out the cases:
* [[spoiler: Median killing Vigilance. Vigilance's soul is stolen, but he regains a body almost identical to his original, as well as the ability to reap souls. If the Master of Life can apparently resurrect herself, why couldn't the Master of Death do the same?]]
* Not to mention that in TheStinger, [[spoiler: Gig comes back to life with all his memories, and fully grown.]]
* [[spoiler: In the Median Ending, Median killing Virtuous. She says the world collapses because there is no Master of Life or Death anymore, but...]]
* [[spoiler: Virtuous is fine when Levin kills her. Maybe it's because she's the Master of Life, but that's not consistent with the above post.]]
* [[spoiler: Gig kills Gamma, Joules, and Drazil in the end. Apparently, this would destroy the world of Drazil, for two reasons a) according to the Median Ending, killing both the Masters destroys the world and b) plain killing Drazil destroys the world in the Bad Demon Path Ending.]]
* [[spoiler: Layna killing Virtuous. Maybe she gets a free pass because she's the Master of Life, but see first example.]]
* [[spoiler: Gig killing Layna and Virtuous. He implies that it's possible to cheat death with an extra soul, but that just raises more questions. Maybe Virtuous can resurrect herself, but if Gig sent all the souls he reaped to Drazil, how could he have missed this?]]

[[WMG: What is a World Eater?]]
[[spoiler: Layna]] says that a World Eater is [[spoiler: a person sent to other worlds by the gods, but that alone isn't a good explanation. Why do they have the power to eat souls? How did Revya arrive from Drazil? Why does young Layna have a new body after she gave hers to Virtuous? Layna also mentions that she wonders why some World Eaters are giant, but...]]

to:

* Maybe it's because Dio is a title, not an actual name.
* In the scene where Odie gets dominated, Odie is the one who suggests that it might be the name. At the point, Odie doesn't seem to have any experience with dominion. Maybe it's not the name. Maybe it's a condition that was lifted simultaneously with telling the name, like consent (not necessarily consent).



Everyone else has a reason for snapping, but she comes alreddy crazy.

Everyone else has a reason for snapping, but she comes alreddy already crazy.

** Another question is [[spoiler: why the world didn't fall apart when Virtuous was killed by Levin]], assuming the above is true.

[[WMG: Why is Gig so absurdly powerful?]]
It makes sense that he's powerful, since he's a god, but why is he so powerful that [[spoiler: He could kill Gamma, Joules, and Drazil in one shot?]] What story reason would justify that?

**The entire setup is 'A final boss battle from the boss's side'. Thus the 'enemy' winning is the Good Ending in that the heroes win.


Added DiffLines:

**Given Layna and Danette's ending, it's presumed that Layna is holding the world together.
