This page covers fan theories for ''[[VideoGame/BioShock1 BioShock 1]]'' and ''VideoGame/BioShock2''; however, ''VideoGame/BioShockInfinite'' has [[WMG/BioShockInfinite its own page]] due to having a different setting.

* We just don't hear it because Jack is supposed to be a HeroicMime. Remember in the audio log? Of course Jack didn't want to kill the puppy, but think about it; how did Fontaine immediately know that Jack disobeyed him? ''He didn't say the code phrase back.''

* He wouldn't have a very difficult time returning, as time travel is a fairly regular occurrence in ''Franchise/StarTrek''. As for his motives, remember that his brother Rom became Nagus and the Ferengi were already undertaking a number of reforms to their society. Rom would probably continue on this course and make Ferengi society more like the Federation way of life, and strengthen relations with the Federation. After all, he was specifically selected by Zek because he wasn't a traditional profit-centric Ferengi like Quark. Consider the effect this would have on Quark; he would watch in horror as his own brother destroyed everything about Ferengi society that Quark had believed in and built his life around. So, Quark decided to get revenge on humanity by trying to ensure that humanity never abandoned capitalism.\\

Additionally, little boys have more testosterone when their born, though the level drops until they hit puberty, but is still a lot more then girls. Its possible the testosterone in boys is repellant to them, making the girls the more attractive hosts.

** Thinking about this, a few of the characters in Franchise/MetalGear could have their abilities explained by features of [=BioShock=]. [=MGS3=] for example: Volgin has an electroshock plasmid, The Sorrow can see ghosts through ADAM exposure, The Pain uses an insect swarm plasmid, The Fear is a spider splicer with a natural camouflage gene tonic, The Fury is a modified Big Daddy...

[[spoiler:Another reason why it only works on little girls? Because their uterus still contains rich sources of nourishment, but the slug isn't yet disturbed in its new home by the onset of puberty; mainly, menstruation. When they hit puberty and begin to shed their uterine lining, the slug becomes hostile to the changing environment and the resulting reaction drive the hosts mad with aggression, which is why they are made into Big Sisters to cope. The reason boys aren't suitable slug hosts is because they don't have one.]] And now I'll go [[SayonaraZetsubouSensei make myself taller]] for ruining this fandom with my horrible mind. Apologies!

Alternatively, after escaping, he falls into a deep sleep. There he continues mutating until he becomes a completely inhuman EldritchAbomination. He (or "it", now) unconsciously mutates all the Splicers so much that they take on entirely new Lovecraftian forms and think that they're an ancient alien race. [[XCom Then they found a city called T'Leth from the ruins of Rapture, and many decades later, emerge on the surface to do battle with soldiers that can somehow throw grenades underwater.]]

** We aren't looking at this closely enough; the Big Daddies aren't who the equipment was designed for. It started out as maintenance equipment, and was co-opted by the Bigs, who are ''sick fucking bastards, by the way,'' to help them "protect" the innocent girls that they mind control and turn into ADAM processors. Like a lot of horrible things, this wasn't part of the plan originally, but became institutionalized when it went out of control. Which is why we see infrastructure dedicated to Big Daddies and Little Sisters.

The HealingFactor provided by the ADAM slug in his stomach is why he is able to stay along [[WMG/TimeLord J]][[ReallySevenHundredYearsOld a]][[BadassBookworm m]][[GeniusBruiser i]][[{{Badass}} e]] for so long without turning into chunky salsa. This fact, combined with the Little Sister mental conditioning and exposure to ImpressivePyrotechnics led to [[MadBomber an unusually deep fascination with rapid pressurized disassembly of large objects]].

* ''[=BioShock=] 2'' even had an Instrumentality plot.
* When the Little Sisters talk of ADAM-infected Splicers being Angels, they weren't being delusional. They were actually almost Angels, having consumed ADAM's blood. Perhaps Rapture is a SEELE experiment and Ryan and Fontaine were manipulated by them, until both went rogue ala [[spoiler:Gendo]]. The knowledge for alien sciences to construct an underwater city is based from the Dead Sea Scrolls. However, the Splicers and consumers of ADAM didn't turn into [[{{Instrumentality}} Tang]] or [[spoiler:[[BiShonen Kaworu]]]], because they consumed the mass-produced low-quality version that only resulted in [[MindScrew insanity]] and ugly disfigurement. It would be further into the future where one could perfect the best host for both cultivating both ADAM and Lilith in the same entity: [[spoiler:the Evangelions and Rei]].

***It could be all this and several more, if the game involves hopping around various cities in various timelines.
