Headscratchers / Dark Cloud

  • (The flavor text on one of Xiao's slingshots: Divine Beast Title. Because this weapon grants the holder the title of "Divine Beast", does this mean that Dran gets demoted when you build up to it?)
  • In the first game, why are "Fairies" and "Gods" effectively the same word?
  • Why is Toan the only character who looks like an elf in what is clearly a Mexican-themed village?
    • His father was stated to be an adventurer. Maybe his father was from a village where everyone looked elfy, and Toan got it from him.
  • In the first game, if the allies can only be "summoned" in dungeons, how does Toan get to where his ally was standing? Didn't the Fairy King himself say "Mind Connect" doesn't work if there are still monsters?
  • Xiao started life as a cat, right? So why is it in the Back Floor of the Demon Shaft, her radius of light is exactly the same size as everyone else's? Can't cats see in the dark?
    • We could be seeing the dungeon from our own point of view rather than Xiao's.
    • By this logic, she should only be able to go "meow," yet she speaks. We get no indication of just what features transferred over in the change aside from the ears, tail, and agility. She could very well have human vision in her human form.
    • At the same time, she also retains some of her cat features: claws, ears, fur, tail. Her eyes may also still look feline.
  • Temporal Paradox: If breaking the Life Sphere returns Rando and La Saia to the day they were suppossed to get married and they do/did so, shouldn't the Shipwreck dungeon cease to exist because La Saia never committed suicide?
    • I simply assumed that was a vision of them finally being together in death, rather than being sent back into the past. This is sort of supported by at least 2 characters in the town mentioning Rando and/or La Saia after the boss battle
