Let's face it, the products Tomoyo brings out from her mother's company look very similar in terms of design to Piffle Princess products that appear in other CLAMP manga. While Icchan is responsible for Piffle Princess's AngelicLayer branch, there's nothing to suggest that he's in charge of the whole company. It would also make sense, considering that one Tomoyo in ''[[TsubasaReservoirChronicle Tsubasa]]'' was president of Piffle Princess. It would also explain why in later series like ''LegalDrug'' Piffle Princess has branched out into clothing.

Or at least, she was incredibly GenreSavvy. Don't remember Kerberos confirming that she hadn't any magic powers, and she created those things with that card's diary quite too well, perhaps she added a bit of her own magic, unconsciously. Also, it's an unwritten CLAMP rule that nobody that uses glasses can be just an ordinary person (Fuu, Watanuki, Satsuki from X, Yukito and ''friggin' Clow Reed'' are fine examples of it). So, her magical powers can be something small, or even God-like ones. (There was another rule for side characters gaining repentine spotlight, but it was a bit less strict than the megane one.)

* Something that may indicate support to this idea is that, while Yue and Kero seem to have a motif that matches Clow's (rather solar [yes, even Yue], more masculine, and light-colored), Ruby and Suppi's designs are inexplicably dark, feminine, and lunar. With the advent of xxxHolic, it doesn't seem too off the bat to think Yuuko was a bit of inspiration for them, intending to match the two pairs together. Of course, Yue/Yukito still decides to screw fate and fall for Touya, but that may have been the original intention.

****** Supported by the fact that in {{xxxHolic}} we find out that Sakura paid her Star Staff to Ichihara Yuuko (the reason has major spoilers for both Holic and TsubasaReservoirChronicle). It doesn't mention what happened to the Cards or Kero and Yue (we ''may'' find out once Holic and TRC finally finish up, but this is Clamp), but presumably Sakura wouldn't have let anything bad happen to them. So she may have found a way to support them without the staff.

Sakura has effectively stopped the negation of the positive energies of the other fifty two cards. The world can no longer stay stable and will eventually lead to some mass apocalypse. Mayhap this will explored in Chronicles or xxxHolic.

* The logic on this one is pretty simple. Eriol is [[spoiler: the reincarnation of Clow Reed that contains all the memories of the original]]. Clow Reed was very involved with Yuuko and [[spoiler: wished her to open her eyes when she died, causing her continued existence and a lot of the problems in the [[XxxHolic xXxHolic]] story]], so he probably was at the very least a friend and must have known that the butterfly was her symbol. So when Eriol went to make Ruby Moon and Spinnel Sun as alternates to Yue and Keroberos he gave them butterfly wings and a darker color scheme as homage to her. It also explains why, despite being a technically [[NoBiologicalSex sexless]] spirit, Ruby Moon [[WholesomeCrossdresser dresses]] and [[GenkiGirl acts]] the way 'she' does.

(Copy and pasting from XXXHOLiC since it's relevant. Spoilers are for that series.) Syaoran is stated in CCS to be 'Clow's Relative' and it's mostly been assumed that he's descended from a cousin of Clow's from the Li Clan. But we are never given a reason for Yuuko's [[spoiler:death, although her youthful appearance suggests she was physically young (excluding any influence her magic had on her ageing)]], and it's never said that Clow never had children. What if Yuuko [[spoiler:died giving birth and Clow's grief at this is what caused him to wish to see her once more]]? Clow could have left the child to be raised by his Li family, knowing that he would have to [[spoiler:fix the problems said wish caused throughout space/time]]. This could also mean that Meilin is also directly descended from them which would explain some of her physical resemblance to Yuuko.

** Possible, but not in the above form. The main issue being that Sonomi is (or at least was) married. In the athletics festival episode where she and Fujikata meet (after quite some time by implication) he refers to her as Amamiya (or something very like that), implying that she got married and changed her name sometime between that episode and when they last met. Doesn't mean that Tomoyo wasn't concieved by artificial insemination but it makes an anonymous donor far less likely.

** Fanon back in the day held pretty hard to the belief that Meiling, with her lack of magic, is TheUnFavorite among the Li clan. Nobody protested her running off to Tokyo because nobody cared that much about her.

This theory is mainly based on the fact that Touya doesn't resemble anyone in his family, personality-wise or physically. The only thing that connects them is that they have the same ears and Clow's magic, but that says is that he's descended from someone with the same Magic as Clow. As for earsówell, that doesn't say much.
* This troper always thinks of Touya as Yuko's son because they have the same teasing grin.

[[WMG: The Libra, prior to being caught, was in the possession of Yamazaki.]]
[[LivingLieDetector The Libra]] is supposed to tell if someone is lying or not. It would probably be drawn to ConsummateLiar Yamazaki. It may possessed Yamazaki and whenever he'd start lying, he would immediately ''say'' that he was lying. It's pretty clearly a Special card, too, as it has no offensive, defensive, or binding abilities. Most likely, because it's a Special card, Sakura never had to attack Yamazaki to get it. She just had to recognise the card was there and that something was deeply amiss (like with The Illusion, where she didn't have to call out its name to force it back to its natural state; she just realised something was wrong).

[[WMG: Yukito has his memory modified regularly]]
* This would solve some discrepancies involving his grandparents. They don't exist, but Yukito always says that they're out when someone's in his house. To start with, his grandparents have to had told him that they were going out, but they can't do that if they don't exist. So one reason on how this would work is that Yukito is implanted with memories of his grandparents every so often, when no one is around.
Example: In the Illusion Card episode, Yukito brings Sakura to his house and claims his grandmother changed her clothes. If the above theory is correct, then Yukito did change her clothes, but his memory modifier kicked in and altered his memory so that his grandmother changed her clothes. Perhaps this memory modification is one reason (but not all of them) that he needs so much food...
