Most of zOMG is a themepark built by Johnny K. Gambino.With the possible exception of Barton Town and the Village Greens, there are far too many problems with zOMG for it to be the "real" world of Gaia.
Ruby is actually Rosalie.Curly blonde hair, blue eyes, a penchant for slightly old-fashioned dresses and hair accessories/hats, names beginning with R, and both tend to be seen with a cute young son somewhere in tow. Coincidence? I think not.
Timmy is the Perfect Labtech cloneOr rather, Labtech 101's enginereed clone, to not suffer drawbacks from weird lab accidents like him. 101's reaction to the serum was amusing, and eerily alike to Timmy's personality (and before that, he was already sort like this). Also, nobody mentions who was that section's Boss, only that she was female, specialized in Genetics, and had a special, almost maternal (although sometimes, looking like romantic) fondness for 101. Doctor Singh is female, specialized in Genetics, and has a purely maternal fondness for the oh-so-similar Timmy, that perhaps mantained the memories, personality (or even the soul), and Timmy himself loves her as a woman. Can anyone see a pattern? Conclusion: Singh is Boss, Timmy is 101's clone, because she knew the Grombie Reaction had a huge chance to happen, but liked 101 so much that she managed to build Timmy as his replica, or even, to a really weird extent, their son. Also, 101's name never was revealed, who knows if he wasn't Timothy by himself, and Timmy is Timothy the Second?
Peyo is a robot.Peyo and Gino used to appear to be about the same age. While Gino's Plot-Relevant Age-Up did have other factors involved, he retained the appearance of a teenager even after he and his father were separated again. Peyo remains as little as ever. This could be ignored, except for the fact that Timmy, who also appears to be about the same age, is now going through puberty. While the other children in Gaia mature, Peyo has remained unchanged for more than four years now. Clearly, Peyo is a robot. Ruby claims he's her son because 'bots are only legal in Aekea.
Sasha is a recovering cancer patient.Sasha's extraordinary thinness has been drawing fire from the fandom for some time, and her hair, streaks and flower included, are available from the shops as a wig. Obviously the thinness is from her chemotherapy, and she wore a wig to hide that the chemo had also destroyed her hair. Since she's begun "growing out" the streaks and abandoned the flower, it means she's recovered enough that the chemotherapy has stopped and her own hair is growing back.
At least a good chunk of the staff are TV Tropers.The fact that they deconstruct, play straight, avert, and subvert so many tropes at one time is kind of suspicious. Maybe they just like Deconstructing in general.
Vladimir Von Helson faked his demise in '07.Vlad's body vanished when he "died". Vampires, as presented in Dracula and the Dungeons & Dragons Monster Manual can turn into mist, among other things— and since we've seen various vampires (users in the '07 event and Zhivago in the manga) turn into bats, obviously Gaian vampires can shapeshift. I can't believe I didn't think of this until now. So many users have refused to believe he was Killed Off for Real. He wasn't. He's still out there, plotting his revenge and blaming all his troubles on Gambino until the time is right for him to make his triumphant return, destroy Gambino, and take over the world of Gaia once and for all.
Zhivago sends out those Clutch/Purse Spies into Zen Gardens for a reason.To counter the above WMG, Vladimir really DID die, but his former right-hand man is looking for a way to revive him, if only in spirit. Perhaps he has a golem waiting to store the soul in, or Zhivago's crazy enough to use his own body as a vessel. Either way, he seeks the power of eastern magic (and perhaps a mix of western magic, too) to revive Vladimir so he and Zhivago can take over Gaia.
Jack is far more powerful than he appears to be or shows.For those who have read the "silly" and "serious" endings to Demonbusters, Jack strips both Overseer and Sentinel of their godhood and immortality. Remember that said gods are MUCH older than him, yet Jack calls them "kids" like he was some old-timer, despite his history clearing stating otherwise. It could be that he simply had a lot of power on Halloween, but the event ended... on November 6. Whether that November 6 is on Gaia time or real life time, who knows. But in either case, he is either holding back quite a bit of power so as to not scare his followers, or his powers really are only at maximum near Hallow's Eve, and then once mid-November and December rolls in, those powers go *poof*. It was still a cop-out if you ask me.
The "Bananaman" item represents Ray Comfort.One of the Midsummer Swirl items was a man in a banana suit descriptively called "Bananaman." Now, young Earth creationist Ray Comfort has been known as the "Banana Man" since he released a video in which he claimed a banana was proof of intelligent design. (He used a modern banana for his demonstration, apparently unaware that it was the result of years of domestication and that the wild banana could never be taken as "designed" for human consumption.) Part of Bananaman's costume covers his eyes, preventing him from seeing anything. Ray Comfort's arguments against evolution are so stupid, he appears to be massively willfully ignorant (in other words, blind).
During the Xmas '09 event, Santa ran away from...Zhivago, AKA, The Sniper, who is still alive and waiting to take revenge on all of Gaia for the downfall of his master. Think about it: maybe Santa knows the whereabouts and plans of Zhivago and ran for it to warn Ian and Co. Alternatively, Labtech X and Zhivago have teamed up recently, and both want to know what Santa knows about the Elftech technology that saved him from the brink of death.
Santa, Jack, and Easter Bunny are hiding from 2012.Just think about it. Jack is more or less a god, able to absorb other gods'—or at least demigods'—powers for his own, and is already powerful. He's about evenly matched with Santa. So, two of the three are effectively gods, and Easter Bunny is probably powerful in his own right, yet they're all utterly terrified, when they could probably beat any challengers. How can this be? Because they aren't just gods. They're also holidays. How do holidays survive? People keep on celebrating them and taking part in them, and as the hidden trio represent holidays, they exist as long as people celebrate the holidays they represent. Simply getting rid of or outlawing the holidays wouldn't work, because as long as people celebrated them in their hearts, they would still have power. Getting rid of the holidays would require the eradication of everyone who can celebrate the holidays. Can anyone think of any popular, upcoming end-of-the-world theories? Especially theories that Gaia would love to play with? Yes, the next enemy is going to be an anthropomorphic 2012. Possibly teamed up with both X and Zhivago, and hell, throw in a resurrected Vlad while we're at it. Because the plots leading up to and including Easter, Halloween, and especially Christmas 2012 are going to be fucking awesome, and the more villains, the merrier.
Dr Singh is going to be slowly driven crazy with guilt as the Timmy Evolving Item evolves.She's already squirming and commenting on each stage that it wasn't one of her proudest moments, so she clearly realizes she did wrong and is showing guilt. Since each stage will be showing Singh the consequences of her abuse all over again and she's powerless to stop it this time, she will feel a lot more guilty this time around, and it will eventually break her to the point where she's all but begging for a second chance. This will be the point when the Evolving Item plotline starts up again, perhaps with T-Bone involved (maybe she'll adopt him?) Or she might just brush the guilt off and carry on as usual, but that's not crazy enough for Wild Mass Guessing.
Gino is pregnant.
Rina is really a transvestite.Considering how "she" always was flat-chested, this may be much more plausible than you'd think thanks to estrogen treatments. Rina was at some point recognizably a boy, just one with a slight build. He underwent rigorous estrogen treatments because he always wished he was born a girl. After his body was pumped full of estrogen for a couple months, he started walking around in girl's clothing, undergarments and all. He looks so much like a girl now, nobody even suspects he might not be.
The Sandman's gender is neither female nor male (and the reasons for putting a lot of people to sleep at once).Despite what the being's name implies, "The Sandman" is more like a title and its true form is a living sleeping dust storm. It takes the form of a woman to try and stop Jack from ruining its plans, knowing damn well that Jack can't help but fall for a pretty girl (usually). However, it doesn't work, and their battle between each other results in Jack pulling off Sandman's blindfold, the only thing that stops all the sand stored inside the fake body from gushing out and subsequently exploding. Using the character's SDPlus doll for additional hints to this theory, the reason Sandman puts so many Gaians to sleep fits with the sinister half of the Sandman legend (specifically, of "Derr Sandmann") wherein using enough sleeping sand results in the eyes of that Gaian rolling out of their sockets. Sandman then puts them on whenever taking on a human form, partially because being able to see helps improve its aim as a human. However, since its very sand comes out of said sockets, the eyes don't last long and they simply corrode. This is also why the Sandman wears a blindfold: to (attempt to) keep the eyes it steals in the sockets, even if that means the sand will simply eat at them faster. So the Sandman puts Gaians to sleep en masse and take their eyes in the process for the sole reason of having lots and lots and lots of eyes to use. In one of the RIG's bad ends, the Sandman steals Jack's eyes during the scuffle, probably because the eyes of a being like Jack Frost last much longer against magic/corrosive sleeping sand than regular eyes.
Diedrich is not related to Gambino in any way except for being born out of his ashes.So many assume that because Johnny's ashes were used to eventually birth Diedrich, they are therefore the same being. That is not so. Before the overdramatic funeral given by the staff, someone tampered with Johnny's ashes; it was probably a Labtech who thought the ashes belonged to a zombified coworker, and experimented with them a bit. He was able to figure out a way to create another Grunny through the ashes of someone who had the G-Virus in their veins, whether the virus was active or not. This Labtech would eventually defect to NeXuS and help mass-produce the Grunnies for those Grunny Subs, but anyways... while the man's ashes were tampered with, nothing really happened. It was only until said ashes were in the right conditions -sealed away from air, no light, little to no moisture- that a defective Grunny rose from the ashes. How is it defective? Because it clearly doesn't act like a regular Grunny (and it gave itself its own name)! Which leads to...
Johnny and Gino were given the G-Virus... sort of.For Johnny, it partially explains his ability to survive ludicrous scenarios such as falling from a tower and fusing with his son; it is in-the-blood Plot Armor. The virus becomes more active during times of stress, such as facing imminent death. Consequentially, a tumor forms around his heart instead of forming a Grunny on his skull, so while Johnny may be "clean," the virus can kill him at any time should it wish. But because it's parasitic, it won't. It also partially contributed into his descent into madness around 2005. When Zhivago shot Johnny, he was shot in a place where the tumor was eradicated and could not either heal or save Johnny; whether this was by coincidence or because this was information given to him is not clear (although the last time he tried to snipe Johnny, it was also to the heart, so maybe...). This also contributes to the miracle that is Diedrich's odd birth. As for Gino, it was given to him by his father, perhaps as a child, so that he may eventually inherit not just the family fortune and business but the family attitude of being insane. It did what he did not expect, though: Gino was completely immune to the virus and it died shortly upon entering his system. The fact that Gino later lost his family fortune and business while roadtripping with Sentinel and Overseer is also probably a coincidence.
(SPOILERS AHEAD) Labtech X is going to foil the plot to kill all the gods and divinely-blooded Gaians.Nobody outside of zOMG! indicates knowledge that Labtech X is still alive, much less that he is a clone of Johnny Gambino and therefore presumably shares his divine blood. The only character in the mass-deicide plot who is (indirectly) in zOMG! and might know about this is Zhivago, who as of "Leash" is being forced to cooperate unwillingly with his boss's demands and thus unlikely to volunteer the info. So, Labtech X is probably the safest divinely-blooded Gaian in the world, adventuring crews periodically crashing his laboratory for gold/loot/lulz notwithstanding. Sooner or later, X will learn about Gambino's assassination, and come looking for revenge because he wanted to do it first. This will likely bring him into contact with a) Gino or Edmund, who can redirect him to b) Zhivago, who can redirect him to c) the Kuro Gang, thus sparking a massive all-out war reconnecting Gaia's main plot with that of zOMG!.
In the final chapter of zOMG!, Labtech X will go back in time, wash up on the shore of the Isle De Nativ with Identity Amnesia, and become the original Johnny Gambino.Thus creating a Stable Time Loop.
Sentinel will side with Nyx.In faction, if not in sentiment. While Sentinel isn't evil or (usually) malicious, she does see power as the only way to get anything done, and she seemed pissed enough after Gaia's judgement to do something drastic. She no longer has the hope of having her godhood restored by Gaia, and she doesn't have Overseer around to act as her conscience; it wouldn't be impossible for Sentinel to wind up supporting Nyx, in hopes that a new order will grant her divinity again. While she'd probably join up with the intention of using any power gained against Nyx, it could easily go wrong if that power corrupts or overtakes her. It would also put Sentinel and Overseer on opposite sides of the upcoming event, as they were in their first appearance
Gaia is not the fair goddess she wants us to think she is.Gaia states in the Return manga that she *created* her five sons, and shows obvious favoritism toward Meili. Meili was given the role of guiding humanity; meanwhile, Nyx is stated to not have the creative ability of the rest of Gaia's sons, so he was given the moon to tend to. Now, Gaia created her sons- couldn't she have created Nyx with those abilities? It was entirely within her power to do so, but she didn't. She gave the rest of her sons everything, gave Nyx a lifeless place to call his own, and then she was surprised when he went and meddled with the gods and demigods who Gaia actually gave power to! So, when Nyx and Ambition caused the feud between Sentinel and the Overseer, Gaia punishes Nyx by essentially CASTING HIM INTO A VOID FOR ALL OF ETERNITY. Now, was it a good thing to do to tear two demigods apart? No. But couldn't Nyx have been given a less extreme punishment? Even stripping Nyx of his godhood would've been better than casting him into a void. Gaia, do you REALLY expect your son to learn a lesson when he's by himself for centuries upon centuries? Put a human being in isolation for two mere weeks, and they'll come out of it without a full grasp on their sanity. And that's not a permanent punishment, like being alone for all of eternity is. Gaia got upset when her creation was inferior when SHE MADE NYX INFERIOR IN TERMS OF HIS ABILITIES. And when she gave one child everything and another child nothing, she acted surprised when Nyx had the guts to try to weasel his way into power he was never given. This is leaving out Gaia's punishment to Sentinel and the Overseer, which was equally unfair. In a nutshell: Gaia is not 'fair', as she would describe herself- she's been deliberately unfair not only to Nyx, but to Sentinel and the Overseer as well.
