* Aside from being Alpha's love interest in the show Niosi hasn't been able go much of anywhere with her character arc so far. This has been noted in episode 5 when Kirb and Flamey argue with each other. And Niosi clearly wants to make her more of a BadAss this time around. Giving her unique powers is one way he could do that. So in an effort to figure out what's going on with Alpha she'll stumble upon a virus power that puts her into a similar situation to the one Alpha's in. [[spoiler: Also the D-bug in TTA has purple FLAMES. c'mon! It totally makes more sense for her to have it!]]

[[WMG: The world of ''VideoGame/MegaManBattleNetwork'' takes place in an alternate universe where Rubirules got his way.]]
* After being defeated in the Season 2 Finale, Rubirules's description of what he was trying to accomplish sounds an awful lot like the world of 20XX in the Mega Man Battle Network and Mega Man NT Warrior franchises, which WordOfGod acknowledges in the final Fact Bubble Special. Who's to say Rubirules's work with SOFDTI didn't influence Dr. Hikari on some level, and help create [=NetNavis=] as we see them in the MMBN series?
** This would even make sense from a timeline perspective - TOME takes place in the years 2020 and 2021, and MMBN takes place in the undefined year of 20XX. Who's to say that Dr. Hikari didn't notice SOFDTI shortly after Rubirules's hypothetical victory, and that Lan was born in the later part of the 21st century (say, the 2070s or 2080s?) By then, the world Rubirules was trying to create would have long since happened.

* While it may be unlikely to happen from a production standpoint. We know The Forbidden Power was created when SOFTDI was influenced by negative thoughts and emotionss. That's why she's made to sleep in episode 00. But what If she woke up and was suddenly aware while she was interpreting all the player's negative thoughts? That could overwhelm her, and cause an even bigger problem. Perhaps virus counterparts of the players instead of herself?

[[WMG: Zetto's character model is specially adapted for [[spoiler: Christopher's paralyzed arm.]] ]]
* In episode zero, Zetto's player reacted as if his own arm was cut off by the forbidden power and even his character needed a prosthetic. This could mean that, since YourMindMakesItReal in TOME, [[spoiler: Christopher]] would lose control of his left arm in real life as well. As a token of good faith, the other netkings would have given Zetto a special interface to continue playing despite his disability. [[spoiler: This would also partially explain the significant skill gap between Kirbopher and Zetto, despite being played by the same person. Kirbopher was Christopher's anonymous character that likely wouldn't have a special interface, meaning that he was literally fighting Alpha one handed.]]
** Jossed. Word of God states that the pain, while he feels it, is just an illusion, and that he didn't lose control of the arm.

is specially adapted for [[spoiler: Christopher's paralyzed arm.]] ]]
* In episode zero, Zetto's player reacted as if his own arm
perfectly aware of what she is capable of and is sympathetic to whatever her creators decide is best. As Gamecrazed, SOFDTI is shown to have learned much about human nature, and is a very aware, intelligent and capable individual. As such, SOFDTI was cut off by technically "awake" the forbidden power and even his character needed a prosthetic. This whole time, operating Gamecrazed so that she could mean that, since YourMindMakesItReal in TOME, [[spoiler: Christopher]] would lose control of his left arm in real life as well.

SOFDTI's capablities couldn't necessarily open up potential future story arcs, however.



[[spoiler:When he went OOC in episode 5, he said he was "just an ordinary chap" outside of TOME.]] Plus, it's a tad odd that such a seemingly energetic character would have an ice sword and element, instead of something else like fire. Perhaps the element is foreshadowing it?

[[WMG: [[spoiler: SOFDTI can possess people just like The Forbidden Power can.]]]]
* This isn't a prediction about future events so much as curiosity over whether or not she can do it too. She might prefer not to do it unless she had to, such as [[spoiler: possessing Flamegirl, who carries part of SOFDTI's antivirus power, in order to confront the virus]]. But even then, she might be a bit hesitant or guilty about doing so, especially without proper permission.

**It seems as though Nylocke, while certaintly not without his troubles, is genuinely happy while playing TOME with his friends (in episode 15, he even tells the Netkings in his true voice that TOME is one of the best things he'd ever had the honor of being part of).

** There are numerous examples in played-straight Tournament Arcs where the protagonist team does not win, DragonBall, YuYuHakusho and Pokemon among them. And again, having no underlying plot to the tournament is playing it straight, not subverting or deconstructing it.

*** What about Sniperwheel and someone voiced by PeanutButterGamer? He works with JonTron a lot, and doesn't have Ego's criticism of the show (as far as I'm aware.) Although, they wouldn't be able to make WebVideo/GameGrumps references, which would be the main reason for having Egoraptor there in the first place.
*** It should be noted that Chris O'Neill (aka Oney), who ''also'' criticized the early episodes of TOME very harshly, made a cameo appearance in "Infectuation", and since he (like JonTron) is a close collaborator with Egoraptor, that might (emphasis on ''might'') be a good sign for Arin's chances of making a cameo himself.

* Basically a rebuttal to the "obvious" conclusion that Kirb joined the FiveManBand to scout for the Forbidden Power. I think he honestly wanted to put the "drama" of his time as Zetto behind him and enjoy hanging out with some other players. (I think the ending of episode 10 supports this - Kirb really seems content with being there.) Obviously he wants to avoid fighting the hackers because they're with Kizuna (and ''they're'' the ones looking for the Forbidden Power), but I think he was more than happy to let them do their thing until it latched onto Alpha, which forced his hand (and Zetto didn't show up until immediately after Kirb was attacked by Demon Alpha - it was the only way to keep him under control at that point). There are still plenty of unanswered questions, though - like how Gamecrazed is involved (was he genuinely curious about him in "Mansion Midnight" or was there more to it?), and what would have happened if Kirb ''did'' get Alpha to partner with him for the tournament. Surely at some point Alpha/Kirb would have gone up against Zetto/Kizuna - how would ''that'' have gone down?
