[[WMG: Magic Is Not Dead, Just Sleeping]]
So, it appears that magic is gone as of the end of the game, right? But isn't that what everyone though after the War of the Magi, too? Who's to say that, 1,000 years after the events of the game, the long-thought-dead-and-gone force of magic will, once again, be brought forth by some improbable chain of events?

[[WMG: Terra Killed Biggs and Wedge]]
So, when Biggs and Wedge go bye-bye, we don't see the usual Doom, Banish, or other spell animation. They just sort of flicker and then are no more. When Kefka attacks Thamasa and "neutralizes" the Espers powers, his Magitek-armored soldiers disappear in a similar manner. The common link between the two? Maduin. Maduin is Terra's father, and she inherited this ability (which she never masters consciously) and Kefka got it via Cid's tube machines at some point.

C'mon, Squeenix, give us a good sequel! (I'd like it to be for the PS3 or the Wii).

[[WMG: The Memento Ring is Shadow's and Relm's mother's wedding rings]]
The love of a deceased loved one protects them, and there's only two of them. Relm has one, passed down from her mother, and Shadow has the other, which he leaves at the counter in Strago's house after rescuing the party from the burning mansion.

The third Memento Ring is stolen from Wrexsoul, in which case it could conceivably be taken to either belong to Cyan or his wife, given where Wrexsoul appears. Though if so, this does beg the question of why Cyan can't equip the Memento Ring.

Think about it, we get no backstory for Banon, none at all. And he and Duncan share the same sprite, Duncan just has a different color palette. Sure, you could chalk it up to being lazy, but remember that when Edgar was using the alias Gerad, he used the same sprite as normal with a different color palette. So why not pull the same trick with Duncan and Banon, use the same sprite but different palettes to hint they're the same guy? Furthermore, with how many other important characters in the game (Madeline, Lola, Cyan's family, Gungho) use generic sprites, and how many [=NPCs=] of minor importance get unique sprites (Katarin, Arvis, Lone Wolf, Rachel), why would the developers reuse Banon's sprite for Duncan? Why not give him a unique sprite or a generic sprite? No other character reuses a party member's sprite like this. It really only makes sense if one presumes there's something to this.

So why not pull the same trick with Duncan and Banon, use the same sprite but different palettes to hint they're the same guy? Think about it, if they ''were'' the same person, then Duncan would easily be found by the Empire as a famous martial arts master. So he makes up an alias, and whenever the Returners refer to their leader, they use his alias "Banon" to keep his identity secret. When Vargas "killed" Duncan, he took the chance to drop out of sight and devote his full energy to the Returners - remember that the timeframe when Vargas killed Duncan more or less lines up with Locke rescuing Terra, so if we assume he sent word to Banon of this young woman who could use magic, it makes sense Duncan would use the "death" excuse to vanish and take on the Banon persona full-time. This is why Banon vanishes in Vector when the Floating Continent rises, he's going back to hide under the Duncan persona again. This is also why, despite the fact he's supposedly alive the whole time, we never see Duncan in the World of Balance - because we ''do'' see him, as Banon. This would also explain Banon's Pray/Health ability which seems to be magic, Duncan would naturally have the ability to harness the same type of energy that powers Sabin's Blitzes.
