* Alternatively, Anime/TheBigO is set in the period after ''Ergo Proxy'', the Amnesia is caused by humans waking from a cryogenic state in orbit and the Megadeuces were left behind by a few Proxies who fled the surface when the sky was restored, they continue to build and supply the mecha because they can't directly disobey humans, but by ensuring the proliferation of giant robots they can push humanity back to extinction for revenge. Dorothy exhibits the final stage of the Cogito Virus, while other androids have been built in such a way that they are immune to cogito as it no longer serves a purpose. All the strange bizarre stuff about whether something is real or not is probably old tech left in the city that was built by proxies thats malfunctioning or being tampered with by humans, as its established very clearly that proxies have access to nearly everything except space-flight, time-travel and meteorological terraforming. Gordon Rosewater was left in charge the same way as Donov Meyer was, but he got tired of it all and had Alex made from him as a clone to take over his duties letting him relax, but also control things from behind the scenes. Schwartzwald is an auto-reiv that was built to look human and after being infected with cogito now thinks he's human. The constant reappearances after his death are his residuals of his infected personality AI surviving in other systems. Roger's issue with respect to his memories could be that he is 2nd-3rd generation replication similar to Re-L, Real and Monad. [[WMG: The Big O occurs during the events of ''Anime/ErgoProxy'', and several main characters are Proxies]] The Amnesia is all due to the humans being created by a proxy, which they experimented on and cloned.

** Angel, a blond woman who had wings that were cut off, was one of the defective clones of Monad Proxy, who was given to Paradigm City geneticist by Daedalus from Romdu to help them out with the Proxy genetic engineering. ** Paradigm City-manufactured Proxies can withstand sunlight since they do not actually have a separate Proxy form, and it is the Proxy form, not the human form, that is vulnerable to sunlight. Also, they can, and do, absorb memories from others around them in order to maintain their disguise. The events of forty years ago where when the original "Roger Smith" was outed as a Proxy, and had no choice but to absorb the memories of all of the population to prevent them from knowing that he was a Proxy.

** Alternatively, just as Vincent Law was Ergo Proxy unknown to himself, Roger Smith is the original Mnemosyne Proxy, and the event forty years ago was caused by Angel ** Angel, a blond woman who had wings that were cut off, was one of the defective clones of Monad Proxy, who was given to Paradigm City geneticist by Daedalus from Romdu Romdeau to help them out with the Proxy genetic engineering. ** Angel is Swan, the dream-invader Proxy. The reason why she is physically present in the US rather than near Rome (where Romdeau is located), is that dreams transcend place. ** Paradigm City-manufactured Proxies can withstand sunlight since they do not actually have a separate Proxy form, and it is the Proxy form, not the human form, that is vulnerable to sunlight. Also, they can, and do, absorb Roger Smith, as the Proxy of Memory (Mnemosyne Proxy) absorbs memories from others around them in order to maintain their disguise.

* Gordon basically confirmed that the Resistance were 'failed tomatoes,' artificial humans who were supposed to be able to contain/retain pre-Event memories, and when they proved faulty, they were abandoned. It's not too far-fetched to say that all but a handful of Paradigm's citizens are similar failed clones.

[[WMG: Big O is a sequel to ThunderBirds]] * The events of 40 years ago were caused by a disaster even International Rescue couldn't stop. The advanced technology and engineering of International Rescue was what allowed the Megadeuses to be constructed. Roger's Griffon was constructed based on innovations seen in FAB 1. Then there's the similar RetroUniverse/RayGunGothic vibe (admittedly, Big O is more 30's/40's while Thunderbirds is obviously more 60's, but an apocalypse will do that...).

[[WMG: The {{Myst}} theory.]] It's not that the show is a literal {{crossover}} with Myst; it's that Paradigm City is analogous to an Age created like those in {{Myst}}.

Roger Smith is a seeker of Order in a world of Chaos; he has friends who are followers; he has a doomed romance; he has a magical black superweapon. And everything is doomed no matter how many times or how much the hero wins. It's pure MichaelMoorcock.

Dorothy is the Tin Man, Roger is the Scarecrow, Dastun is the Cowardly Lion, Gordon is the Wizard of Oz, Alex is the Wicked Witch of the West, Beck is the King of the Winged Monkeys, Angel is Dorothy (much like in SerialExperimentsLain, Alice is not [[Literature/AliceInWonderland Alice]]), and Angel's "mother" (the leader of the Union) is the Good Witch of the North. Memories are the Silver or Ruby Slippers. So in the end, Angel is able to use her power to become remembered again ("I just want to go home"), setting the world back as it should be. Please note that the world would probably not be the ''exact'' same, but changed subtly to a better world. (Think SerialExperimentsLain, which the author wrote ''just'' before Anime/TheBigO).
