Volcano is Vulcanus' Daughter and nothing more.
Flonne is a candidate for Vulcanus's old job.She's studying to be an Angel again; and we can see her Angel sprites in the promo art; so it's going to be part of the main plot. Flonne can at least pretend to be an Archangel as seen in Raspberyl Mode in Disgaea 3. Volcano is the other candidate.
Disgaea 4 will go Meta-recursive, and will make its serious moments an over the top parody of its own Sliding Scaleof Seriousnessversus SillinessThe second Promo suggests it. And the games into video has hints of it too.
The obligatory second mode will star FuukaThere's already at least one piece of art with her in the human world - in her "pre-Prinny" life. The second game mode, like the Axel mode, will be a prequel to the main story and cover Fuuka's descent into delinquency, but uniquely, will take place in an alternate modern day human world, filled with monsters and the like.
Desco and Asagi will team up.Asagi wants to star in her own game; Desco wants to become a final boss. Clearly a match made in the Netherworld, and they simply must join forces — all with the intent of eventually facing off in their very own spotlight title, of course...!
The Netherworld the game takes place in? Axel's home world!Disgaea 2: Dark Hero Days has the last chapter taken place in a children's orphanage where building contractors have been commissioned to build an Overlord's castle. Axel stops them, of course, but that doesn't mean the castle doesn't ever get built. Cue Time Skip, and Overlord's castle is finished, with the antagonist as the Overlord. That explains how the Dark Hero is without a cameraman or director in sight; he's home!
Valvatorez has a direct connection with this Netherworld's previous Overlord.In all three of the previous games, the main character had a direct connection with the previous overlord (for the first and third ones it was the main characters father and in the second it's their girlfriend) So going by this pattern, it seems almost obvious.
Valvatorez will be voiced by Yuri Lowenthal.He looks the part...
The names of angels are actually Nom de Guerre.It would explain why there are now two people named Vulcanus: the events of the first game led to the first becoming Unpersoned, and his Code Name and ranking were assigned to someone else. As for why Flonne got to keep her name after becoming a Fallen Angel, she never exactly disobeyed Lamington's orders...plus, the audience is too used to calling her Flonne by now.
Fuka's father wanted and needed Fuka to die.Given his reaction to seeing his dead daughter, either he truly is insane, or having her die was part of the plan all along. A human, even with two final boss sisters, would have trouble taking over the world in his mind. So, by having her die, she would have to end up in Hell since her ambitions are not Heaven worthy, as he says. By killing her, he sends her on her way to become a demon, makes Deso fall to Hades as well to find her, and BAM now she can take over the world. He... just didn't think or know about the whole Prinny roadblock thing.
By the time of Disgaea 4 Father Salade has died and gone to CelestiaHe's now working as the uniform designer for Angel Trainees...
Valvatorez got the title of Tyrant from defeating BaalUnless the Japanese is different, Baal is the only other demon to be called a Tyrant, and that's how it worked in the original Disgaea.
God and Baal are somehow related, though how is uncertain, whether it being the same entity in a different body or what not.One of the more common forms for Baal's multiple bodies is that of an Enryngi. What does "God" manifest as? An Enryngi. With God Is Evil being in play in the 4th game, it may be possible.
Someone at NIS is a Castlevania fan.The plot to late the game has some disturbing similarities to the back story of Symphony of the Night. Artina plays the role of Lisa, Valvatorez plays the role of Alucard, and Nemo plays the role of Dracula. To elaborate, the circumstances of Artina's death are in many ways similar to Lisa's (both die as a result of medicine related No Good Deed Goes Un Punished). Valvatorez is pissed but is stopped by the dying words of Artina. Nemo goes nuclear as a result, becoming a dark lord of sorts hell bent on the destruction and punishment of man kind as retribution for Artina's death.
The Chara world is inside that characters mind.The Chara world is essentially a character equivalent of an item world. You go inside Him/Her/it, beat up enemies, and solve geo puzzles. Now this would be all fine and dandy if it wasn't for the fact that you can DEPLOY THE CHARACTER YOU ARE CURRENTLY INSIDE, INSIDE THEMSELVES! Inception jokes inside, this instantly rules out you being physically inside them as this would create a paradox. Therefore you are most likely actually inside their minds and are beating up nightmares and when you deploy them you are deploying their imaginary self who if dies results in that real character going into a coma which is why they cannot be used again until they are healed at the hospital. The geo blocks are probably their latent abilities.
God is YHVH.Think about it, God is a jerk to the residents of the Netherworld and Earth.
Gig and Prier knock each other outBoth of them were too strong for the game's cast, so they just stood back and them Mutal Kill each other, except they're not dead.
