to:

** Proven incorrect in the final chapter. The money comes from a big government payoff intended for suppression and they had no intention of ever actually making money from the current Liar Game.




to:

** It doesn't come up again.




to:

** True to a point. They indeed aren't making any money as they aren't actively forcing the debts to be paid. However, Asaka is not involved in any capacity and the money fueling the Liar Game comes from a completely different source.





to:

\n** Untrue, as shown when the veil of the LGT comes down.




** Two of the three are correct. The Eliminated People do not sit on chairs though as it wouldn't help sitting on teammates' chairs, and they'd have to find the opponent's chairs (and if they could do that, they wouldn't need the eliminated people to sit on them and would just take it outright or eliminate it at the first opportunity).




to:

** He is a Nao Fanboy, but no bet was involved.


Added DiffLines:

** The Lawyer never comes up after Nao is sent to the final game.


Added DiffLines:

** This one's a bit tricky to break down. Well Yokoya was uninvolved as the Third Revival Round split up the contestants into two groups due to the excess size. Yokoya and Fukunaga got separated of. Ultimately though, Team Nao/Akiyama and Team Harimoto are absolutely at odds, despite Nao's usual attempts at cooperation but then thanks to Nao's optimism, Harimoto and Abe relent.


Added DiffLines:

** Nope, was just an extreme coincidence.


Added DiffLines:

** They don't make any money at all as it's not their goal.


Added DiffLines:

** While not the specific goal, this theory is actually not too far off the mark.

* It's the money they LGT takes in from rich jackoffs that bet on the game. The whole thing is a more mean-spirited RatRace or less intense (somewhat) version of a DeadlyGame. Of course, if that plot twist shows up, it kind of negates the whole idea that anyone can take down the LGT, because they're making money even if everyone DOES end up freed with one person assuming all the debt.

Related to the RatRace WMG above. Whenever Leronira is shown, he's usually rooting for Nao and/or Akiyama. This is because he placed a large bet on them. Most likely, he placed his bet on Nao because everyone else believed she'd lose. Therefore, the betting odds would be stacked against Nao, so anyone who bet on her can win a ton of money if she wins. Leronira will then use his winnings to help all the players who lost and are in debt because he's a Nao FanBoy.

We know Akiyama is a genius, right? He had to [[LamarckWasRight get his wits somewhere]]. Perhaps Akiyama's mother tricked everyone into thinking she was dead, and for unknown reasons joined the LGT Office (maybe the insurance company was aligned with the LGT Office?). Perhaps she is the officer of the Pandemic game and delivers tournament information to Yokoya. She also [[FreudWasRight resembles Nao]] with the hairstyle. Since Akiyama knows that Nao resembles his mother, this could be powerful evidence.

* It's evident that Akiyama wants to destroy the Liar Game by screwing over the system, and Nao wants to save everybody with the winnings. To do either, one of the two has to win. Considering there will only be one winner, the two will eventually face off. Nao has been progressively becoming better at conning than she was at the start, and by the end of the series could possibly be on par with Akiyama, or at least know him so well she can read through everything. The resulting match will be something that puts Manga/DeathNote and ''Manga/FutureDiary'' to shame with mind-games.

But on NAO. And not only that: The feeling was mutual. Since she knew that Fukunaga would keep on the game, she started to wear dresses, heels and such. She didn't wore that in the first games, and of course, Nao is always asking about Fukunaga. [spoiler]The final scene show her with Fukunaga, and in the end, she did phone Akiyama. The girls were closer.[/spoiler]

If you look at Game Theory, it predicts that in games like the Prisoner's Dilemma, you can have more positive equilibria if the game is played over many consecutive rounds, allowing players to punish defectors and cheaters, and reward those who co-operate. But how do you actually ''prove'' it works when it comes to human beings?

** This theory has not only made overanalysis an art but at the same time has positioned itself at the very pinnacle of it.
