[[folder: Fridge Logic ]]

* Well, after reading up to Ch. 224, this troper realized that [[spoiler: Assuming that the clones of Sakura and Syaoran have the exact same DNA as the originals... 1. C!Syaoran + C!Sakura = Original Syaoran (50% Sakura's DNA, 50% his own DNA) 2. If the original Syaoran and the original Sakura had a kid....he/she'd be 75% Sakura's DNA and 25% Syaoran's DNA... 3. This also means that the original Sakura and Syaoran are related...because Syaoran has 50% of Sakura's (clone) DNA and 4. Because the clone of Syaoran is 100% Syaoran's DNA, then that means that the clone of Syaoran is has 50% from Sakura, and 50% from the original (Because this is the make-up of the original's DNA)]]
** Well, since its a loop, there's actually an infinite regression going on here, with each generation changing. [[spoiler: Tsubasa Li's DNA is an infinitely small % Syaoran and an infinitely large % Sakura, since there is a literally infinite chain of /2 Syaoran going on in his ancestry and genome as the genetic loop runs over and over, since each change in his genome to be +x% sakura means the clone is retconned to also have that genome, passing that Sakura DNA to Tsubasa Li instead of Syaoran DNA. The 50/50 thing applied the first time, the second loop Tsubasa Li was 25% himself and so on. Since it was infinite, he has an infinitely small amount of his own DNA]]. The MindScrew page is over there.
** Oh we've had enough MindScrew already. It's much simpler to consider that [[YouFailBiologyForever Clamp failed biology forever.]] See MyOwnGrampa.
** Actually, this wouldn't occur at all, because [[spoiler:by the time he conceived Tsubasa, C!Tsubasa is longer a clone of him. He's now his clones reincarnation, but actually now inhabits the body of an CCS!Syaoran making him alt of him, with lineage from Clow Reed and a different origin now. And Presumably different genetics with it. Assuming that was truly the case however it need not be complicated, as Syaoran only had Tsubasa Li once, ontologically speaking. One inception, one copulation, one scramble of genetics, that was it. Just because his DNA would find itself back into the clone who would birth him doesn't mean I'd be necessarily selfcest. Syaoran is a paradox temporally created copy of Tsubasa who in turn also happens to be his son.... in this given scenario. The gene's are all there for the two to be created, and that Sakura was in the mix doesn't mean she's splicing/inserting herself into his existence, but she always was and always meant to be, coinciding with the whole destiny/cosmic familiarity theme ongoing. It's a simple stable time-loop; Syaoran's existence is facilitated by Tsubasa's and vice-versa, (With Sakura's somewhere mixed in) looking into it deeper is just obfuscating the matter. But that's all completely irrelevant, since Syaoran being reincarnated into Alt!CCS!Syaoran, with the deceased C!Syaoran's soul is what helps make this less relevant of headscratching to think about.]]
** [[MST3KMantra It's better if we all just don't think too much about it...]]

[[folder: Fridge Brilliance ]]

* In the early days of the manga, I kept wondering why [[TheDragon Kyle Rodart]] looked so much like [[{{xxxholic}} Watanuki]]. Much later, I realized that it's intentional, [[spoiler: Kyle is a clone of Syaoran, just like Watanuki]].
** Whilst I'm not sure he's [[spoiler: a clone of Syaoran]], he does follow the aesthetic pattern: [[RavenHairIvorySkin pale with black hair]].
* In RGVeda it was established that a ThirdEye represents "sins even a demon wouldn't commit", so I was really confused when the Ashura statue in the country of Shara had one. But just now I remembered that he wished for Yasha to come back from the dead. Perhaps in the original timeline of that world (before Syaoran and co. mucked it up), this wish led him to doing something that messed with the natural order of things, hence the extra eye.
* The reason FWR found Fai and Yuui was because [[spoiler: real!Fai wished for death in the tower]] and that FWR fulfilled his wish while at the same time making it seem like they really had a choice in the matter when [[spoiler:he asked them who should be the one to die so the other could live.]]
* Mokona's [[TranslatorMicrobes powers]] are the only thing that allows the characters from different worlds to communicate with each other, and only work when they're all near him. So why, when they split up in Outo country can they still talk to each other, and the other people in Outo? [[spoiler:Why of course, because Outo is actually a RPG made to be played be people from different worlds and has it's own translation circuit]]
* This only seems to work in hindsight, since [[YukiKajiura Kajiura]] would have had no real idea what twists the plot would take at the point when the anime adaptation was begun, especially since it's one of the first tracks that plays in the anime as a whole, but A Song of Storm and Fire applies to [[spoiler: both Syaorans.]] The [[spoiler: original uses wind magic almost exclusively, and the clone prefers to use fire over everything else, both with Hien and Fai's eye.]] It's a literal song of Storm ( [[spoiler: The original Syaoran]]) and Fire ( [[spoiler: the clone.]] ), especially when they end up battling each other in [[spoiler: the world of dreams.]]
* The anime ''didn't'' cast MotokoKumai and Creator/SakuraTange in the lead roles, despite reusing the same voice actors between in-universe counterparts. Fandom was rather annoyed at this at the time. [[spoiler:But, as it turns out in the manga, they aren't really AlternateUniverse counterparts of the lead couple of ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura''...]]
* Most fans agree the casting was rather spot on.
* Creator/AyaHisakawa did return to her role as Kero from ''Manga/CardcaptorSakura'' in the anime.
* In volume 24 we have a visit to the shop that was illustrated with the same angles and lines as the first chapter of ''xxxHolic'' as a big foreshadowing to the revelation that [[spoiler:the original Syaoran and Watanuki share the same role.]]

* This is not just FridgeHorror, Creator/{{CLAMP}}'s upgraded to AscendedFridgeHorror = {{Squick}}: [[FridgeHorror Fridge]] {{Squick}} - Everyone's related in this TangledFamilyTree.
** [[spoiler:Tsubasa Li]] now has [[spoiler: the memory of sending himself to another dimension to fall in love with his moms original self because his wife had a dream]]
** And [[spoiler:Tsubasa]] Sakura has all the [[spoiler: memories of C!Sakura which means she has all the memories of what it is to be Syaoran's mom. But never mind she was seeing everything through her clone's eyes ''the whole time'']], even while FrozenInTime.
**** Doesn't this only apply if we assume that [[spoiler:Tsubasa obtained all the memories of C!Sakura!mom's entire existence? I just assumed it was only of original Clone!Sakura up until the point where she died. Did it state whether or not she inherited Reincarnated mom's memories? If you mean when she absorbed the last feather, I felt like that was more like absorbing her essence/soul type thing like with [[KingdomHearts Kari/Nami]] rather than obtaining her full set of memories. I cannot imagine how squicky it would be only to see your clone's travels, and than there new life as your crushes mom, than remembering several years of being trapped/frozen for years (a bit willingly), and than being freed only to get adsorbed (ded pretty much) shortly after before getting to greet your son and original self.]]
*** Wait a minute, then that would mean that [[spoiler:Tsubasa!]]Sakura and [[spoiler:Tsubasa!]]Syaoran would remember [[spoiler:Tsubasa!]]Syaoran's, ahem, conception. That is, that one special night between his parents, when a mommy and a daddy love each other very much... yeah, awkward to the max.
** Regardless of [[spoiler:Whether or not Tsubasa is related to himself or not, he's already naturally sort of an incestual child. His father (C!Syaoran reincarnated) was born as a relative of Clow Reed (Son? He's a descendant somehow). Mom clone Sakura also is related to Clow Reed already, assuming we believe the original timeline still happened, and to top it all off Princess Tsubasa Sakura is born of an Alt-version/reincarnation of Reed well before any of that happened. Squicky.]]
** Now the clones and the originals have become one. [[AllPsychologyIsFreudian Which means...]] There are quite a lot of reasons why R!Syaoran wants them back alive.
** All along, the originals have been seeing (and experiencing and therefore re-living) each other through the clones' eyes.
* When I first read through ''TsubasaReservoirChronicle'', I figured the second promise [[spoiler:Kurogane]] talks about in Chapter 134 is just [[spoiler:to stay with [[TrueCompanions the gang]] and help find Cloney, blah blah blah]]. It was only much later that I realized that's not it at all; the new promise is really [[spoiler:to take responsibility for Fay's life and [[HoYay stay by his side]] to give him the blood he needs to survive. (Notice he only confirms that he would stay with the group after Fay says he will.) After Kurogane says this, Sakura and Mokona give him almost questioning looks, but Fay looks down sadly he understands exactly what Kurogane is talking about]].
* In Fai's backstory, [[spoiler:it says that the elder prince looked forward to their birth. It also says that the twins' mother and father (the younger prince) died. That means that the ruler who imprisoned Yuui and Fai was their own uncle.]]
