Similar to an above theory, only for the {{Dreamcast}}[=/=]PS2 game as opposed to the Genesis series. The player character's interactions with the various cetaceans are the first sparks of the alliance between Singers and Humans. Endless Ocean 2 is where the more in-depth interaction starts, with ambassadors from different dolphin species guiding the player to better understand Singer culture, showing them the remnants of a previous alliance with the Okeanides, which ultimately fell to ruin for reasons as-of-yet unrevealed (possibly falling apart after fending off an earlier Foe attack, in which they were victorious but with too many losses to continue their culture). The Commerson's dolphin is the final guide, implied to be able to speak and guarding the ancient treasures alongside the singing dragons. Basically, the player in the Endless Ocean games is responsible for the start of the utopian society spoken of at the beginning of Defender.

Those ruins seemed to be a good location for fishes to hide from dolphins, a.k.a. [[AlternateCharacterInterpretation Ecco's friends]].

[[AsYouKnow As you might know]], if you put in the password "NNNNNNNN" in the first ''Ecco the Dolphin'', you'll be transported to everyone's ''favourite'' level, "Welcome to the Machine". I suspect the programmers knowingly planted that one, for "[[{{Angrish}} NNNNNNNN]]!" is the sound most players will soon be making upon arrival.

"The ocean is alive now - it feels and thinks." The Asterite's has become its brain, and the water is its extended body. That's also where the Skyway came from - it wants its Singer friends to be able to travel anywhere, even the ones that can't fly.

[[WMG:Ecco 3 would have consisted entirely of Ecco's XanatosGambit to save the Atlanteans and/or screw over the Vortex for good.]]
According to the same interview linked above, Ecco didn't even bother going to the same time period the Vortex Queen did at the end of ''Tides of Time'' -- he went to the Atlanteans, who had been wiped out by the Vortex a few thousand years before the present. Perhaps he [[XanatosRoulette already knew]] the Vortex would get stomped and killed off by wildlife in Prehistory (turns out they survived just well enough to integrate into it instead), or figured any major ramifications to the timeline [[TimeyWimeyBall would have already happened]] the moment the Queen beat him to the Time Machine anyway, so whatever they did must have been a StableTimeLoop and it was okay to let it be for the moment. Instead, he went for reinforcements, hoping to enlist their help in taking the fight starward and wiping out the Vortex altogether.
