* Anime/DotHack is a straight example (the characters do make friends and fight evil online, but there are some campy elements), while Modern VR stories like Anime/SwordArtOnline have a darker take on the concept (although there is still some {{Camp}} there, too). With this in mind, TOME seems to be mainly based on the .Hack model, but does away with a lot of the {{Camp}} and features some dark aspects such as the Forbidden Power. The characters face personal challenges, but these are resolved by the end; and ultimately the story comes out better for it.

* [[spoiler: The main characters team up with Zetto and Kizuna in the final episode, but it's not to stop the virus, it's to stop ''Rubirules'', who is the BiggerBad in the whole TOME story. Alpha is actually able to make an {{Inverted}} DealWithTheDevil to join forces with the Virus aas well.]]



* Namely the reboot's version of Blitz128, based on the similar voice and style of humor
** Can't be Blitz128 because he's voiced by Todd Haberkorn here, but it could easily be somebody else.

* [[spoiler: one of the Netkings DID turn out to be evil, but it wasn't Webmaster OR Execk - it was RUBIRULES, who wanted to control SOFDTI to kickstart a technological revolution so he could become a pioneer in the field of computer science. He fed the mods misinformation to keep them off his scent, and was using Zetto and Kizuna to accomplish greater things than just destroying the Forbidden Power.]]

*** What about Sniperwheel and someone voiced by PeanutButterGamer? He works with WebVideo/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.

* 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.

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).
