** [[AllInTheManual In the game manual]], No Face {{HandWave}}s this away by claiming [[DisabilitySuperpower he's gotten extra perception by enhanced smelling and hearing]]. As for how he or Dollface can "eat", I assumed it's because they had stomach-pump devices [[TheLawOfConservationOfDetail that just weren't shown onscreen or explicitly mentioned in their stories]].

** This has to do with the design of the mask. It ''looks'' like his left eye is the damaged one, but his right eye is [[RedEyesTakeWarning red]] [[TearsOfBlood for a reason]], and that right eye-hole in the mask [[EyeScream wasn't always there]]...

** In the reboot, I assume it's made by dousing his head with gasoline, and then lighting it up. This was seen in the Twisted Metal 2011 teaser, where he lights his head up with a discarded cigar, and [[spoiler: in the epilogue, where Charlie Kane explicitly lights his head on fire in this manner]].

* Why is Agent Stone in solitary confinement in a mental institution? He had gone a little crazy during a high stakes operation, and accidentally killed two civilians, something he blames himself for. He is fully repentent, and aside from the contest, shows no violent tendencies.

to:

*** Presumably, the "homicidal" is when he went TriggerHappy during the HostageSituation, getting the mother and daughter killed, and it's implied that he holds a buried AxCrazy personality against criminals: swinging between suicidally depressed and homicidally aggressive would explain why he was locked up in Blackfield, and why he's willing to kill others in the Twisted Metal competition to try to "undo" his mistake.

*** Along the same lines, [[BoomHeadshot Calypso getting sniped]] would explain why [[EyeScream one of his eyes is sunken in his head]].

** Also remember that real-life serial killers have and do build fandoms around themselves, either because people believe they're in love, or because the people are drawn the killer's personality.

** He transplanted his left eye into his right eye socket?

\n* In Sweet Tooth's flashbacks, he is seen being stabbed in his right eye by his daughter, but in every other cutscene and promotional material, it's his ''left'' eye that's gone. How can that be?

\n** When it comes to Sweet Tooth in the reboot, I always imagined that, as the legend of Needles "Sweet Tooth" Kane gained momentum, other crazies began to idolize him, and came to him in clown regalia, asking to work for him. Seeing some use in them (especially considering he's an ice cream truck driver by trade, not a mechanic), he agreed. As he kept killing people, including an entire high-rise hospital without a single scratch on him, he began to be revered by the crazies as a god/king of some sort. As for the transforming bit, I imagine one of the nutters in his employ was a mechanical savant, something like Charlie Kane's Son from Black, but on Sweet Tooth's side. I also imagined he gained the weapons mostly from being in the tournament, procuring them on the black market, or just storming a military base and killing everyone and taking the weapons.

* Why is Needle's head on fire? In Black, he is cursed, okay, makes sense. According to the very non-canin Twisted Metal 4, he seems to have been transformed by Calypso when he became the star of the competition. What about every other game? The closest thing I can think of for the reboot is that he's hallucinating. But then, why does everyone else see it?




to:

[[AC: Reboot]]
* In Sweet Tooth's story, all we can really assume is he loaded his old ice cream truck with weapons and became a serial killer. His story has nothing to suggest anything more than this, and yet he has his own gang of devoted followers AND the aforementioned ice cream truck can now turn into a giant robot. I think this sort of thing is worth an explanation outside of 'its awesome.'
