*** HighFantasy is pretty timeless. Besides, the setting seems more [[FantasyCounterpartCulture reminiscent]] of a [[XMeetsY cross]] between OliveGarden with {{Intrepid Merchant}}s (Figaro), FeudalJapan (Doma, yet it's mixed with Cyan's [[YeOldeButcheredeEnglishe olde englishe]]), DarkestAfrica (the Veldt, it even comes with African folk music, but thankfully avoiding that trope's more UnfortunateImplications), UrbanSegregation (Jidoor vs. Zozo with surprisingly sturdy-looking ''skyscrapers''), {{Steampunk}} (practically everywhere but especially Figaro, Vector and Narshe) and TheGayNineties (household technology), with lots of SchizoTech to go around (Come on, the Empire has mecha and genetic engineering (Celes' implied origin) yet they still use ''carrier pigeons''? Well if one has Magitek he can easily build an Internet for starters). Overall, the world feels less Middle Ages and more post-Renaissance, with sprinkled pieces of pure AnachronismStew and that make the setting difficult to pin to any real world time period. Basically, the story can get away with anything it pleases, including certain modern-style laws like age of consent.

[[WMG: Kefka's makeup causes him to overheat.]]

The bust shot of Kefka that appears during dialog scenes shows him with white makeup on his face and neck. The makeup prevents heat from escaping from his head, so he overheats easily. For example, in Terra's flashback, Kefka is letting Terra handle all of the combat in her training exercise so that he doesn't have to exert himself in the fiery environment. When Kefka and his bodyguards arrive outside of Figaro Castle, Kefka crouches and complains about how hot he is. He flees from combat situations throughout the game because he's overheating from exertion.

[[WMG: Kefka is attracted to Celes.]]

At some point in the game, Kefka feels attraction toward Celes. He persuades Emperor Gestahl to forgive her treason (provided that she kills her teammates), allow her back into his inner circle, and arrange a breeding program between himself and Celes because he wants Celes for himself. Kefka completely loses his composure when Celes stabs him on the Floating Continent because he has been betrayed by the woman he desires.

A lot of emphasis is placed on Maria's beauty and Celes' striking resemblance to the singer, but there's no way she would have been able to step into Maria's role with zero musical background. Celes doesn't have to be as good of a singer as Maria, but she at least has to be passable. Celes can sing because, as a low-ranking soldier in the Gestahlian army, she was also a member of the imperial choir, reinforcing the values of the empire through jingoistic anthems. The reason she keeps this part of her past secret from Locke is because she's ashamed to have once bought so deeply into the Empire's propaganda machine.

[[WMG: Edgar's two-headed coin is a denomination of Figaro's esoteric currency.]]
Though Figaro uses Gil, the kingdom retains its own currency, maybe just for collectors' purposes. The reason this particular coin has two heads is because it bears the twin princes of Figaro, Sabin and Edgar. Sabin doesn't notice that it's their coin when Edgar flips for the throne because [[ContrivedCoincidence he doesn't look at it]].

* This opens up a new perspective on everything Kefka does after the cataclysm. He does virtually nothing for that year but sit up in his tower, draining all of the magic from the Warring Triad. There's no reason why he lets life continue in the world of ruin, but Wrexsoul would need living bodies from which to farm despair. Assuming Cyan rejoins the party and faces Wrexsoul at Doma castle, that only leaves a used up, godlike Kefka by the endgame. Without Wrexsoul feeding from his own troubled past, Kefka decides to erase all existence in an extreme, opposite reaction to Wrexsoul's initial plot.

[[WMG: 3 of the 4 additional Espers added in ''Advance'' are a new generation.]]
As Kefka ran the Warring Triad's power havok, he unwittingly made espers out of the following:
* A deep-sea creature became Leviathan.
* A cactus in a small desert near Maranda became Gigantaur, Who then spawns smaller Cactaur.
* An Imperial soldier will a lesser rank became name. His name was still originally Gilgamesh, and he is an alternate version of of Gilgamesh from VideoGame/FinalFantasyV.

[[WMG: Etymology of Bastard Sword]]
They are named so because they are all illegitimate children of the Esper, Ragnarok.
