Eveyone who had their fate averted in the main timeline of the game have repressed memories.
This game is the Ace Attorney universes version of Reaper's game; as opposed to the trials in those games themselves.
It actually is possible to prevent your own death
When all's said and done, Sissel can still talk to everyone in their heads. This is a bit weird.Does everybody still have orange cores from being saved from death, or would red-guy be the only one (his death being the last one to be reverted)? Sissel can still use Ghost World skills (apparently) at the end and at the very least the Crack Team who went back to 10 years ago will all remember the fragment incident, so he should still be able to talk to them.
Sissel can still talk to Kamila, Jowd, etc.The sequel will have them helping him avert fates as various partners. Missile will somehow be re-Temsikified, Kamila can help set up machines, Jowd, Cabanela and Lynne take him with them to work, and Yomiel returns with programming skills and hacking, barring another Temsik.
The main villain of Ghost Trick 2 will be a bird.Specifically, Sissel will hunt and kill a bird. As a result, the bird will become Temsikified and go on a murderous rampage.
The Pigeon is also a Temsik Immortal.The meteor broke into many pieces, after all. That day in the park, it got hit too. For some reason, it's able to block ghosts from seeing the radiation.
Phoenix didn't try to find the truth and reclaim his badge because Sissel was making it hard to find work anyway.Obviously. I mean, how many people did Sissel un-kill in one night? If we assumed Ace Attorney and Ghost Trick took place near each other and the only major crimes that seem to take place there are murder and costumed burglary, what's a defense attorney to do when people suddenly stop dying in such numbers?
Yomiel's life was lonely even before Temsik happened.Think about it. As far as it can be determined, his fiancee Sissel was the only person he had in his life. There are no mentions of any other friends or family, and given how desperate he becomes to no longer be alone, it can probably be safely said that if Yomiel had them he would have tried to get in contact with them. It is logical to assume, therefore, that he didn't have them. So Temsik may not have created a problem so much as worsened an already existing one.
Kenny's repeated deaths are/were the result of him being stalked by a Temsik-influenced spirit.IT EXPLAINS EVERYTHING!
The foreigners are from BorginiaThe blue skin is simply stylistic exaggeration.
The foreigners are AliensThey are blue skinned, having advanced, weird technologies. They specifically come to earth, disguised as foreigners to take the power from Temsik meteorite.
Lynne either will kept her memory or will eventually realize what awesome powers Kamilla's kitty has. She will take Sissel to every single of her homicide-related jobs from then on and the town's rate of sucessful murder attempts will shrink by at least 80% for mysterious reasons.
Sissel is a girl in Japan.Think of the plottwist in the end. We know that "Sissel" is a feminine name, even in this universe. We also know how damn hard it is to tell a male and a female cat apart on first glance. Also, Sissel only looked like a man because he believed himself/herself to be Yomiel. Add the finishing touch that in the japanese version, Yomiel never refers to Sissel with any gender specific pronoun or the like and that Sissel uses "Watashi" for "I", which is absolutely gender neutral and that his true form's sprites look just plain adorable... We might have a female protagonist on hands here after all, people.
Detective Jowd was the defendant in Gregory Edgeworth's final caseGhost Trick is confirmed to take place in the Ace Attorney universe. However the time period is not given, which creates the possibility that Jowd could have been defended by Edgeworth Snr. Given the sparse amount of evidence, this could have lead the prosecutor Von Karma to create false evidence Which was revealed by Edgeworth Snr leading to Von Karma receiving a penalty, ruining his perfect record and leading to Gregory Edgeworth's death despite this due to Detective Jowd's confession he was found guilty.
Ghost Trick and 9 Hours 9 Persons 9 Doors co-exist in the same universeThis is almost begging for a crossover considering how Layton and Phoenix Wright got it together.
In the epilogue, Yomiel has prosthetic legs.Despite Ghost Trick running at least partially on Rule of Cool, it seems a little farfetched that his legs would survive being crushed by a heavy concrete monument. The universe probably does have the technology necessary for fully functioning prosthetic limbs, and if they resembled automail then it would still fit the coolness factor, as well as bringing that surrogate body that Yomiel made out of objects when they were in the submarine to mind.
The cause of all of this was that Yomiel accidentally summoned Temsik.Okay, he was a genius programmer working on "multi-dimensional programming." That sounds like something that could become Sufficiently Advanced. So this started getting data in and out of time and space and other dimensions; messing with cause and effect, and creating this big chunk of fate that just materialized and landed on him. It took redirecting that Fate against itself to move its target.
Sissel kills Beauty and Dandy in the new timeline.He remembers them, and when they take a job robbing a place tied with his family; he changes the "grams" on the safe-cracker recipe with "kilograms". He's not adverse to killing, after all.
If there is a sequel, that poor little blue rat will turn into an empowered ghost.After all, we already know from Missile and Sissel that animals can manage it. And with how often that little dude recurred throughout the game, he deserves an expanded role.
Right after the final scene, Yomiel and our Sissel are reunited.They clearly remember each other, and it would be the Crowning Moment of Heartwarming to end all Crowning Moments of Heartwarming.
The Assassins are robots.Who self-destruct when they die, hence nobody ever finding their bodies. Yes, these robots are near sighted and afraid of light. They're created by the same people who made a giant robot who types things onto a console and then hits the console to make it work.
Regina Berry is Emma's "Darling Angel" from an averted timelineAfter her real father died she ran away from home and Russel Berry took her in, like Acro and Bat. She was the first one he adopted, (and the only one he legally took in) so she's the only one with his family name. The similarities are eerie, really: the hairstyle, Spoiled Sweet disposition, they're both rather sheltered and a bit ditzy.
Each time Sissel goes back in time, he is actually going to an alternate universe; not the past.When going back in time, wouldn't the events that Sissel caused to occur before happen again? This also explains why some times Sissel can go back in time to a certain time when he has changed a fate. Thinking logically, what Sissel changes should have always been changed even before he went back to change it. It's like in Ocarina of Time when that guy teaches you that song. You then go back in time and teach the song to the man so that he can, in the future teach it to you so that you can teach it to him ect. Basically despite the fact that you hadn't done it yet you had technically still gone back and done it in the past meaning that it happened. This is the same thing in Ghost Trick. Surely the fate changes should have always existed in the concept if time. The alternate universe theory makes sense of this.
"Nearsighted" Jeego and "One Step Ahead" Tengo are the same person.They're extremely similar in appearance and manner, the only differences being their guns and the fact that Tengo wears glasses. Jeego had no answer when Lynne asked why he doesn't wear glasses, so it could be that he doesn't actually have a reason to not increase his accuracy at longer distances outside of his "Nearsighted" persona. When an infiltration or sniper mission was required, he could become the more covert-sounding "One Step Ahead", and all he would have to do was don his spectacles and equip a more appropriate weapon.
Ghost Trick takes place some time before Ace Attorney.Cell phones are fairly common in Ace Attorney, but nobody seems to own one in Ghost Trick. Sure, you can chalk this up to just being for the convenience of gameplay, but it'd make sense that everybody was using rotary-style landline phones. This could lead to some nice connections between the two series.
Detective Jowd now has the same kind of body that Yomiel had.In the final timeline, he and Sissel were hit by fragments of Temsik. We later get a throwaway line about how 10 years have passed and yet the latter is still a kitten. Assuming that he didn't die, that means that what happened to Yomiel's body can happen without death. If he never had the fragments removed (as is common with uninfected projectiles that would cause more damage by removing), then it is quite possible that Jowd is now the immortal detective of the force!
Memry died at the diner in the Alpha Timeline
Cabanela doesn't walk down the stairs...He "dancingly descends" down them. I don't really have any evidence or conjecture (baseless or otherwise) to back this theory. It's just too good an opportunity to pass up.
Yomiel will be the main character if a Ghost Trick sequel is ever madeBut he'll be going by the code name Sissel, the avoid spoiling the first game... at least until the last few chapters, where the events of the first game suddenly become relevant, and you'll have to team up with Sissel the cat to save the day.
Beauty's Sixth Sense means she's been savedAfter Sissel saves Jowd from execution, he explains that he can now sense his presence within a room, allowing Sissel to lead him out of the prison. If Beauty has been saved, she may be able to sense a ghost's presence as well. But Beauty doesn't have a core, which means that if she was saved, whe was unconscious. The obvious question is, "Who could have saved her?" Yomiel can't, and it couldn't have been Sissel or Missile. But There are other possibilities, especially when one considers that Temsik's origin is unknown, so it could have caused the "powers of the dead" to arise elsewhere.
Ghost Trick follows the Unfinished Business rule with ghostsThe Temsik Shard made Yomiel's body immortal, but what kept his soul from passing on were his feelings of anger at what led to his death. Similarly, this is why Sissel couldn't, since he didn't even know his own name after he died. And everyone else who died had some important things to do as well. Souls exist in this universe already without the radiation, so it stands to reason the afterlife and its usual rules exist as well. Presumably, this is why Sissel isn't too concerned about the living forever deal in the epilogue.
Ghost Trick and Jojos Bizarre Adventure take place in the same universeWhen an arrow fragment (which came from a meteorite) is shot into a person, it grants them supernatural powers even if it killed them. Just like Temsik. So Sissel, Missile and Yomiel are basically Stand users.
Ghost Trick takes place in EuropeGyakuten Saiban takes place in Japan, whereas the localization takes place in the U.S. Los Angeles specifically. Ghost Trick takes place in the same universe but is not necessarily connected. That's because it takes place far away from both those locations: in this universe's version of Europe somewhere, probably in the great Britain. The Justice Minister has British Royal guards working for him, and the flag in his office is decidedly not American. Plus, the football in the park is identified as a Rugby Ball. Rugby uses the same type of ball as American Football, but is a European sport. An American person would never identify a Football as a Rugby ball, showing that the game takes place in Europe.
In the new timeline, Sissel is already deadIn the new timeline, Sissel the cat has a core. This can be explained due to the "dead memories" psyche, but remember, due to the deflection, Jowd was shot through the leg, and suppose that Sissel was killed in the way that Yomiel was killed in the original timeline.
Bailey, the prison guard, is secretly a member of the Armstrong family.After all:
Ghost Trick is an Alternate Universe of Ace Attorney.
Lynne became Athena Cykes in the one of the new timelines Sissel has created
Damon Gant is Inspector Cabanella's brother
The country Ghost Trick takes place in is Borginia.Which possibly explains the lack of cell phones and the oddities in the legal system.
Cabanela is able to hear background music
