...he decided to leave town to find his place now that it was finally physically possible, somewhere along the way his mental instability increased before finally, er, "stabilizing" at its own odd point in its own odd way, his obsession with the all-powerful Drosselmeyer ended up as some kind of [[GodIsEvil segue]], his paranoias led to him using an alias for whatever reason, and he ended up as a [[strike: cultist]] priest in the town of SilentHill.

[[WMG: Mytho is [[RevolutionaryGirlUtena Dios.]] ]]
Once his heart is restored, he is the [[TheWisePrince glorious ]] [[PrinceCharming ideal]] of the KnightInShiningArmour. He is self-sacrificing to a near suicidal degree (even before he was [[EmotionlessGirl emotionless]] ). In Rue's flashback, we seen her as a little girl while Mytho still looks the same as he does at the time of the series - it's as though he doesn't age. Once fully awakened, he is able to save the woman he loves and defeat ultimate evil. [[RevolutionaryGirlUtena Dios]] is described as "That which is eternal, that which shines, the power of miracles, the power to revolutionize the world..." and is shown as having been around since a golden age. He, too, has temendous powers of swordsmanship and defends the world form evil , at a great cost to himself. [[spoiler: This could mean that Raven!Mytho is in fact Akio. ]]

[[WMG: RevolutionaryGirlUtena and Princess Tutu occur in the same universe]]

Episode 1 must have been Duck's first day as a human, since A) She didn't recognize Mr. Cat and B) [[{{Dojikko}} Knowing her]], she wouldn't have been able to go more than a day or two before turning back into a duck. She clearly thought that she had been human all her life, so Drosselmeyer could just as easily have made her think that she had been at the Academy for a while, too. But if that was her first day, how could Pique and Lilie be best friends with her? Because they were written that way, in order to help incorporate her into the community. And it just figures that Drosselmeyer would give her "friends" who would explain things without offering any real emotional support.

[[WMG:Drosselmeyer is Creator/GenUrobuchi.]]
Gen Urobuchi's very stated obsession with only telling tragic tales is extremely similar to how Drosselmeyer also openly proclaims it. In addition, Drosselmeyer walks off at the end to tell more stories, so it makes sense that he'd get involved with other things. Hell, he even wrote [[Anime/PuellaMagiMadokaMagica another magical girl series]], with references to German stories. He learned not to involve himself with any of these other works, though, after what happened last time.

[[WMG: Mr. Cat is related to [[TheCatReturns The Royal Family]]]]
The King Cat in TheCatReturns keeps trying to get Haru to marry either the Prince or (at the end) him. However, [[TakeAThirdOption a third option is taken]]. Somewhere down (up?) the line, Mr. Cat was born and ended up in Kinkan town where things got... Screwy.

[[WMG: Drosselmeyer is JossWhedon.]]
The first syllable of his name sounds like "Joss", and he loves angsty stories. Hence, ''Anime/PrincessTutu'' was secretly written by JossWhedon, and conversely, ''{{Series/Firefly}}'' was secretly written by Drosselmeyer. The reason it ended so early was that the characters revolted.

* Different Troper. I had this idea myself way back, though instead of another Story Spinner, I had assumed the human Drosselmeyer created the character Drosselmeyer. It's been said that Drosselmeyer [[spoiler:wrote one last story with the blood of his stumps after his hands were cut off]] to forever continue his love of tragedy. The story he wrote was of himself as a pseudo form of immortality.

The characters refuse to behave out of character - an EnsembleDarkhorse TallDarkAndHandsome KnightInSourArmor can't die in a fight according to a prophecy, a [[PluckyGirl Plucky]] [[CuteClumsyGirl Ditzy]] MagicalGirl won't give up [[ThePowerOfHope hope]] and won't just [[SenselessSacrifice sacrifice herself to a villain]] [[YouCantFightFate conforming to set destiny]]. This just doesn't happen in this genre, no matter how much Drosselmeyer wants it to; for that, he should have set it up as [[SlidingScaleOfIdealismVersusCynicism more serious/realistic]] from the start.
