Reasons why they're questing.
What are the less-easily-identifiable costumes?
Angry Joe and Todd In The Shadows will duel at some point.Simply because Joe is dressed as Inigo Montoya and Todd appears to be dressed as Westley/Dread Pirate Roberts.
The Angry Video Game Nerd will be a villain.He has plenty of costumes, so he'll show up dressed as Batman or Ganondorf or something and him and NC will have a rematch.
Paw will be a villain.He's possibly dressed as Profion and Doug has said in the past that he wanted to do more with Paw this year since he gave him such a small role in Kickassia.
Doug will quote Link's "Well excuse me princess!" lineWe all know it's gonna happen. If he quoted M. Bison's "Of course!" line last year, it's a guarantee.
Bennet is dressed as Aslan.Why? Irony of course! Bennet the Sage would be the devil playing Jesus.
Todd will rescue LupaThat, or if she eats a poisoned apple, and falls into a coma, Todd will kiss her awake
The costumes are just for the trailerAnd maybe one scene, but not for the whole thing. That'd be silly ('specially with Lupa).
Someone will rip off Todd's mask to reveal...Another mask.
"Suburban Knights" is Channel Awesome's attempt to make a movie better than one they've reviewed.Picture it: a terrible sequel to a fantasy movie inspires the crew to show the creators how real fantasy sequels are done. They try and pick the "greatest fantasy ever created" to make a sequel to, but none of them can agree on what the greatest fantasy is, so they wind up in all the different costumes you see in the trailer. Undeterred by this, the crew decides to keep their promise and film a movie that will serve as a sequel to all of CA's favorite fantasy movies. Unfortunately, everyone's ideas for the script differ, they have no budget, and they're all slowly going insane as they get a little too "in character." In the end, they unite to make a terrible, terrible movie. THOUGH, as Doug points out: it was still better than the garbage that inspired it.
Alternatively, "Suburban Knights" is their attempt to "save Chicago" by becoming like their heroes.A crime wave inspires Doug Walker to gather his posse of insane vigilante critics and embark on a quest to rid Chicago of "evil". Needless to say, the group get really into it.
Luke's reaction to Film Brain will be similar to Film Brain's reaction to Critic in KickassiaHe'll be a complete fanboy around him, and will dress as Harry Potter after he sees Film Brain's costume. He'd be modelling himself after his idol.
Linkara is Himself.He'll claim that, considering how much crazy fantasy stuff goes on in his show, he might as well just be himself in a more fantasy-esque costume. And possibly try and make himself into a Mary Sue.
Alternatively, Linkara is Bayban.Bayban the cosplayable!
Suburban Knights will be an Alternate Universe.Rather than having the members of TGWTG taking on fantasy personas and going on a quest, they will BE those personas. It won't be "Spoony as 'Spoony the White'" or whatever, it would be straight-up "Spoony the White", his main persona playing no role in the actual story.
Doctor Insano will return.Alternatively, Black Lantern Spoony will return. After all, Black Lantern Spoony took over the revived Spoony (the reviewer Spoony at the time being a clone), who referred to himself as "Spoony the White". Who is Spoony playing right now? Granted, the two have fused, but that doesn't mean the Black Lantern form is gone for good...
Tommy Wiseau is the Big BadIt is just so fitting
The movie will be a parody of The Lord of the RingsThe trailer already seems to parody the shots from the Fellowship of the Ring trailer, where the characters march over the mountain. It would also be a fitting plot - they have found the ultimate terrible movie/comic/video game and must go to a Mount Doom-esque setting to destroy it.
The three dark-robed antagonists are the Shadowlords from Ultima V.Let's see... three vaguely Nazgūl-like figures who have magical powers and genuinely terrify Spoony the White, a.k.a. The Goddamn Avatar? Keep in mind, he had to destroy their power sources before he could defeat them before. His advice for their physical forms was to get away fast, or as he puts it in the trailer, "Run like children!"
Phelous will sing "Born To Be Wild".He's made a few... enthusiastic singing cameos recently and his role is confirmed as the Rockbiter from The Neverending Story. Given the Critic's review of the third movie and the site's love of callback references, even when not the original reviewers (recall Linkara telling MarzGurl about Disneyland), it's hard to rule out the possibility.
The girl glanced at 2:52 is a MacGuffin Girl.At some point the gauntlet will transform into a girl, and the group will have to figure out how to change her back, or whether they even should.
At one point, one of the villains will claim that he loves the gauntlet......because it's "so bad".
Linkara is the Goddamn Avatar.He does seem to be wearing a version of the suit Spoony wears...
Linkara is the Linkara from the fantasy novel series he self published as a teenager.He mentioned that he took the name from those books and he has his own logo on the costume...
At least one of the unseen female guests (Nella, Elisa, Liz, or someone not previously mentioned) will portray a valkyrie.They're splitting up into groups. There are several warriors, several wizards and even several elves. They're trying to find a Gauntlet. What more needs to be said?
Orlando is dressed as Harry Dresden.Between the staff, the duster, and the blowing stuff up, it seems pretty likely. Granted, that still doesn't explain the crazy kung-fu...
That Guy's cameo will be important.He will be the guardian of the gauntlet.
Team listJust so its clear who's with who since they don't seem to be altogether Team A: NC/Link, Chick/Arwen, Linkara, Lupa/Snow White, Sage, Tom, Mickey/Robin Hood, Benzaie/Conan, Phelous/Rock Biter Team B: Spoony/Gandalf, Todd/Westley, MarzGurl/San, Snob/Indiana Jones, Joe/Inigo Montoya, Paw/Profion, Luke/Harry Potter, Film Brain/Harry Potter, J-Dub/Jareth
Possibles for those not presentSome possibilities.
The Implacable Man/Antagonist is Roger the (former?) Angel.And, really pissed off that the Critic killed him, he's back for revenge. Same actor, same martial arts moves; and the Critic would be the only one who recognizes him. Coming back from the bullet wound to the head? Well, Death Is Cheap.
Dark Nella will returnThe villains may make her Brainwashed and Crazy or something like that...
The Power Gauntlet will be given to Ma-TiBecause it will be given to the one with the most "Heart"
Iron Liz is the mysterious witch in blackSince it has been confirmed that Team Nostalgia Chick and Iron Liz are in this, it seems most reasonable that this witch is played by Iron Liz because the best shot we have of her doesn't really look like Nella or Elisa. Which would make it even funnier in The Reveal if Linkara is the one to first notice her.
Linkara will sing at some point.He's dressed as a knight and he loves Camelot, it's easy to imagine that he'd sing a little.
The Power Gauntlet is the key to controlling the Internet.Whoever wears it can delete any internet personas he wants, and the Critic will use it to erase the Nerd once and for all. The villains want it to banish all internet reviewers to the worst prison imaginable on the net, TV Tropes.
The Power Gauntlet is actually the Power Glove.
The Critic seeks the Gauntlet of Unspeakable Power...
Jedi are involved.
Gandalf!Spoony will execute a Shoryuken for the third year in a row.
At the end the team will get back at the Nostalgia Critic for both the adventure and the events in Kickassia.They still aren't over what Critic did in Kickassia, Joe and Spoony especially. No one would have showed up if Critic called saying "It's Time" Again so he had to improvise with the free car.
The ring wraiths are...
The "Great Evil" mentioned in the trailer will turn out to be the Critic.Everyone else will naturally sigh with an "We should have seen that coming" reaction.
Current Movie Theories
The photocopied map will be important.They established that the Critic is giving away the original map to the other group. This has to be a fairly important plot device, e.g. the original map will hold some hidden text that the photocopy doesn't. That is of course, if the Critic actually gave away the original.
Ma-Ti will be Killed Off for RealThe rest of the characters are doing everything they can to leave him behind. One of the villains will come to the Critic's house looking for the team, find Ma-Ti, and kill him. It's been said that Bargo doesn't like to be typecast as Ma-Ti, so it would make sense to give him a big send-off.
There won't be a rivalry between Luke and Film BrainFilm Brain suspects Luke of trying to "overthrow" him, starts acting all antagonistic towards him, and Luke just shrugs it all off revealing that he doesn't really care about being Doug's favorite or anything; he was just trying to be nice. This leads to Film Brain re-thinking his life ditching the whole "annoying Nostalgia Critic fanboy" attitude and he starts to act more like his own person. This causes him to become more respected by others around him, including Doug.
Nella, Elisa and the other sidekicks are the hooded wraithsIf only because it's been hinted at that they will be part of the anniversary and because a few of the wraiths seems to be women, and there aren't many of those on the site.
Critic researches the wrong information about the gauntlet, leading to complicate things.The Critic said he "did research" on it before gathering all the reviewers, but we never see him do it. We just have to take his word for it. Therefore, particularly after knowing the Critic, anything he's saying to them could be completely false, and give the villains the upper hand.
Ma-Ti will find the gauntlet in the end.He does really want to help and, based on the original Captain Planet review, he's actually just a guy dressed as a fantasy character.
The Gauntlet will end up being something related to the Power Glove.Even if it's just a joke I could totally see it, like after everyone gets into a battle, someone runs up, put it on and just says "It's so bad.". And if it's more than a joke I could see the AGVN making an appearance, if he doesn't then it could work with any gamer, or even the big bad, if he is actually a bad guy and not just there to stop the true evil
The map was created by the Critic - well, actually, BOTH of them were.In the beginning, when Critic picks up the map and VHS, there is a Sharpie nearby. It could be that he just used said Sharpie to write 'EPICNESS' on the label on the VHS, but the map also looks like it could have been drawn by the Critic - in fact, both of them do. But why would you need to re-draw the map, rather than photocopy it? Well, maybe Critic drew two different maps, using the exact same Sharpie that Linkara used to draw his beard. That's why Linkara ran out of Sharpie - those maps must have taken an awful lot of ink.
Film Brain in a fit of rage will kill Luke, where Nostalgia Critic will banish him. Then he gets taken in by the dark side.At one point Film Brain will have enough of Luke stealing the spotlight from him and kill him, though he will immediately regret this when everybody rushes to the see what was going on and the Nostalgia Critic is so ashamed of Film Brain and tells him something around, "He really looked up to you, he thought you were awesome. You sicken me!" And banishes him from the group and winds up getting taken by the Sunglasses Guy and is manipulated into thinking that he's with the good guy and his fellow reviewers are out to get the gauntlet and use it to destroy the world.
The crew will encounter Chester A. Bum on their journey.He will be either
The producers who aren't in Chicago were Genre Savvy enough to realize the Critic's plan.And those who weren't Genre Savvy but didn't go because they didn't have enough money.
Todd in the Shadows is going to get unmasked, accidental or otherwise. Even than, it'll be another unreveal
Handsome Tom will end up with Marzgurl.Tom, who is as handsome as his name indicates, comes bursting into the same with his massive height, glistening red hair, and enough charisma to drown out the vast majority of those around him. But he believes himself to be a member of an incredibly short race. In other words, he's Carrot Ironfoundersson. Well, he is dressed as a tall dwarf ... So who best matches Angua?
Ma-Ti will pull a Face-Heel Turn.The bad guys will get him to join them, either by just tricking him or by playing on his feelings at being rejected by NC and crew. Who he sides with will be a major plot point.
Ma-Ti will turn out to be very important.Somehow the power of Heart will very vital to this and he'll finally get a day in the limelight (before it's stolen).
The identity of the Cloaks.Lord Kat, Geoff Keighley (To get round 2 with Angry Joe LOL), and the head Cloak is Jordan. That troll from Busy Street.
Rob's character is very much alive and probably the current wielder of the Hand.He could be like the old knight watching over the Holy Grail in Indiana Jones, tying it all in with Brad's offbeat choice of character. It just seems so unlikely to me that such a hugely Genre Savvy group of folks could introduce a character like that (mysterious, barely mentioned and only at the very beginning, played by a notable actor) without following up on it somehow.
The whole film is going to be a story told by Santa Christ.Something drastic will happen to the whole cast, and then it'll cut to Santa Christ reading the story from the same book that he used during the Christmas special.
Spoony's lantern ring will be importantthat big pink ring looks incredibly out of place with his Gandalf costume. Linkara doesn't seem to have his magic gun along that we know he has from the opening so the fact that Spoony has something from his shows mythos also seams important. It might be that something will happen here that leads into his Ultima storyline's finale.
Critic will have to play the heroAt the moment he's actively refusing to play anyone but himself while everyone else is more or less getting in-character. And we saw him doing the Link scream in the trailer.
Critic will have actual character developmentHe apologizes for "sounding douchey" after the "Excuse me, Princess", which is something he's normally not concerned about. Rob said on the forum that the movie has an arc that might carry over into next year—perhaps Doug is a bit tired of the exaggerated anger and wants to take the Critic in a more mellow direction.
Malecite's Hand is really Malecite's Hand
Phelous will lose his "friends" somehowAnd when he does, he will pull off that "They looked like big, strong, hands, don't they?" thing.
Cat is actually possessing the human he is on ala AnkhIt's similar to Ankh... So maybe?
Snow White Lupa will Take a Level in BadassWe already know that she is strong-willed and not willing to take crap from people. This time she swooned. In the final battle, she's going to channel a different Snow White.
The cloaks will be demaskedThe cloaks will confront the critics group, and will end up demasked. They'll all then use the confusion of their faces to attack the group. It'll be explained that they take the form of the person closest to the person who decloaked them. So Linkara will have an intense dramatic scene where he tries to bring himself to attack Liz!cloak...and then critic will quickly stab Geek!cloak to avoid questions of why the geek is closest to him
The Cloaks and Cat are actually good guysThey're guarding the gauntlet from evil, so obviously they're well intentioned. The only reason they seem evil is because they're spooky and they attacked the reviewers. It's doubtful that the guardians would deem them "Pure of Heart" enough to have the glove. And the Cloaks probably thought Spoony's party was composed of idiots, considering the events of their first meeting.
Someone will be killed by the Big Bad.Possibly Spoony, thus becoming BL Spoony. The last time Spoony appeared, he became evil. Why not have an undead dragon for the Big Bad? It will up to Linkara and pals to resurrect Spoony, and forever destroy the influence of Nekron. Or Spoony could be made the first good Black Lantern, and have cool immortality powers. The other candidate is Phelous-given how Death Is Cheap for him, it should be intresting.
The Big Bad will preach of nostalgia and there will be a running theme of nostalgia with the villains.Building of the WMG above the Big Bad talked with the guy he kills in the beginning about how he enjoys the new time we live in and whether he would give up his past for it(or at least something a long those lines). He says that people have more in the past than they realize. He's referring to nostalgia, and everything that we loved in the past and how it makes us who we are. The Big Bad refuses to accept the change to the 21st century and wants to use the gauntlet to bring back simpler more nostalgic times, and sees all the new technology and media as a threat to it. Our heroes at TGWTG loose faith and angst, because really isn't that what they want too? Then they realize that the technology of the 21st century allows them to connect with one another and share their nostalgia with the internet, and that while there were good things about the past there are also bad things like the 21st century. Their dressing up and doing reviews is homage to the past, and in several ways preserve it through the reviews they put up on the web whether it's sleazy exploitation films, bad kid's movies, or cheesy cult classics. Even further they can joke that the 21st century still gives them plenty to make fun of and enjoy.
There will be a Blair Witch Project joke in part 4The second group has lost their map as of the end of part 3. That is all.
Someone besides the Critic has set everything upThe Critic got the map as a chain letter and Ma-Ti got a letter that wasn't written by the Critic. Someone wants the gauntlet found, knew that Ma-Ti was vital and knew that the Critic would never consider bringing Ma-Ti into this.
The disgruntled mom and kid in Part 3 was not scripted.The mom and kid were about to go on the playground, when they saw the cast and began wondering what the hell they were doing. Once they explained, the cast realized that it could be a great joke. So they asked the mom and kid to participate, and they were good sports and agreed. You can see that the kid is trying her best not to laugh.
Several memebers in each group are being mind-controlled by the villainsIn the trailer something is mentioned to have "power over the phenomenally weak minded". While nothing's been made explicit, there are several people who are getting way too far into character, the most obivous being Paw and his constant want for rage, and Phelous beleiving in his action figures more than his allies. Also he wants to kill sage. They're not the only ones though, as Snob seems to be doing a lot to make Indiana Jones gags, MarzGurl is biting people and only speaking Japanese despite there not being a need for it, and Linkara is far too interested in writing musical numbers than usual. Some force is causing them to think more and more like their characters, and at some point they will turn against the rest of the reviewers in an epic and angsty (and possibly singalong) battle.
One of the cloak guys is SeanBecause one of them is obviously fat...
Linkara has the Magic Gun on himEven given his roleplaying, I'm pretty sure that he'd be on his guard for his own foes, and given the events of the Silent Hill arc of his own show, the gun is the most likey thing he'd bring with him. and yes, this will be important, who else has more of a chance (Aside from Ma-Ti) of passing this other than them?
Everyone in the group will be stuck as their characters or act like themPhelous and several others are victims already.
Chuck Jaffers is a Chekhov's Gunman
Chuck Jaffers is the Big Bad
Chuck Jaffers and the Big Bad are related somehow
The third Cloak is Apollo Z. HackListen at the end of part 3 where the group get ditched by Spoony's group.
Dr. Insano will show up in front of Spoony's Group.Dr. Insano will show up holding the map. Everyone will look at Spoony confused since it was established that Dr. Insano and Spoony was revealed to be the same person in Kickassia.
Orlando's character isn't looking for the Gauntlet.If he were, he would have recognized the map, and kept it, instead of giving it back to Spoondalf. His goal is not to acquire the amulet, but rather to destroy anyone who is far too reliant on technology, from his perspective. Which, in our day and age, is just about everyone. While he does go after the team, it will be for reasons not concerning the magical gauntlet.
The gauntlet is a metaphor.For what, I don't know. Maybe it's a metaphor for technology, which explains Mr. I-Hate-The-21st-Century who's hell-bent on destroying any who even appears to be remotely reliant on technology. The Cloaks are actually trying to protect technology from Orlando's character, and believe that the reviewers were sent by him to track down this techonology metaphor and destroy it. Eventually, the reviewers will find out, be pissed at the Critic for dragging them along, the Cloaks and the reviewers will team up, fight Orlando's character, then they will all go home muttering about how this was all a waste of time.
Paw will be killed by Orlando's character.He's perpetually wearing a pair of giant headphones. That's not easily missable, especially by someone who murders people for being too reliant on technology.
The Angry Video Game Nerd is one of the cloaks.Because he has to make a cameo somehow.
Film Brain will be cured of his brainwashing by the Power of LoveNo... not the usual power of love. But the Power Of... the Critic being nice to him...
Orlando's character is using the heroes to find the gauntletWhile the reviewer's may not be that pure of heart, they're certianly purer than he is. He gave them the map because he knows they have better chance at finding the gauntlet, but as soon as they have it he'll take it from them.
The Big Bad gave Team 2 the map in order to lead them to their deathsHe hates technology and feels that the TGWTG contribute to people's dependence on it for entertainment, thus he wants them continue on in order to die.
Spoony's entire team will be corrupted eventuallyThey are meant to serve as the adversaries to Critic's team. That's also why Critic keeps finding the supposedly benevolent guardians and Spoony keeps running into cloaks. Also why Orlando's character helped. Besides, did you notice that his team has the two characters based on villains, and three if you count Inigo's early work with Vizzini?
One path leads to the gauntlet, the other to the jewel that goes into it.Either that, or they won't find the jewel until next year's anniversary.
Chuck Jaffers' fantasy character will be Santa ChristAnd whoever finds him will tell him that he looks nothing like him.
Film Brain will take a level in badass after his brainwashing.
The "Give me Light" thing will become an important Chekhov's Skill
The Big Bad didn't kill Team 2 because they aren't using any 21st century technologyWhile Paw has his headphones and Joe has his gun somewhere, these were common in the twentieth century. His other victims were using technology that didn't become common until the turn of the century; cell phones, GPS and recent generation cars. After all he is using clothing and sunglasses made with twentieth century technology, so it seems he isn't a complete Luddite.
Film Brain's love of the Nostalgia Critic may become a major plot point.If he's put back on Team 2 as a spy, this may happen inevitably. Jossed. He was himself again just after being brainwashed.
Iron Liz and the other two Cloaks were turned into Cloaks the same way as Film BrainIt's been confirmed that Cloaks can Brainwash people, so who's to say the same thing didn't happen to them by other, unseen Cloaks before they first appeared. Could also lead to a Crowning Moment of Heartwarming with Linkara curing Iron Liz with The Power of Love.
The Big Bad is, currently, trying to help the groupThere's currently no reason for him to want to kill either group. So far as he's aware, none of them are particularly reliant on technology and the fact that they're on a quest that requires them to use their brains should get his respect, since his main complaint about technology is that people rely too much on it and get soft. That's why he gives the map to Jew Wario without question. Once he learns that they're planning to obtain the gauntlet in order to make money, that's when he'll turn against them.
Film Brain and Luke will become buddies.They both seemed to enjoy screwing with the Gate Cleaner, despite seemingly hating each other (Well, it's more Film Brain hating Luke, but still). And Luke was the first to notice that Film Brain had gone missing. Their subplot will probably end with them realizing "Hey, you're pretty cool after all" and become friends. And then after SK they will do a crossover review.
Spoony will die and come back as Insano or Black Lantern Spoony dressed as Gandalf the White.
Suede is one of the Cloaks or one of the Guardians
The ending will be somewhat anti-climactic, with the main focus being on making Doug's character (The Critic, not Link) look pathetic.
The climax will have Ma-Ti in possession of Malecite's Hand while the team and Malecite simultaneously try to sway him to use it against the other.
The green jewel on the front of Jaffers' book is the one needed to power Malecite's hand.
The Entity will kill Malecite, with Linkara taking the Hand and the Gemstone in the aftermath for the inevitable...
Malecite's main weakness is heart.
90s Kid will help thwart Malecite.
The Cloaks will never actually be unmasked.Now that we know they're Jaffers' friends from thirty years ago, it wouldn't make a lot of sense for them to be Iron Liz or the Last Angry Geek.
Film Brain was not actually hypnotized by the cloaked ones. Only by Jew Wario and his ball's cheap novelty.It would make sense, as not only Film Brain doesn't see the cloaked one's eyes (he goes as far as pointing it out!), but also does the cloaked ones all repeat the sentence "One of us! One of us!" on him. This didn't seem as much as hypnosis as it did as peer pressure (which - given the context of a group of dorks really getting into their role-playing game - makes perfect sense). Also, while "hypnotized", Film Brain does not act or speak any differently than when he did on the team; he was just kind of walking along with the cloaked ones, if at all (which was the reason they abandoned him quickly again). Then, when the team finds him and tries to de-hypnotize him again ("I'm an internet reviewer!"), the first very thing he responds to them was "I'm a brilliant internet reviewer." They figure he isn't de-hypnotized yet and carry on, until he himself only says "I'm an internet reviewer." Perhaps, the only time Film Brain was hypnotized was here, as he in fact was in his typical snobbish state all along. And the only thing that changed after the hypnosis was his overly fond perception of himself (which may also be the reason why Luke and he suddenly get along so well).
There's a Not So Different approaching, fast.Malecite will catch up with our heroes and deliver his "what do you think of the 21st century?" line, with attendant spiel. Whereupon the heroes will point out that he's being... critical. In fact, sociopathically critical. May tie in with the Nostalgia Critic becoming less of an asshole.
Suede is not an obstacle placed by Jaffers or the Cloaks.He only pretended to be an obstacle, either to catch up with the group to join them or to trick them. It will be revealed that he doesn't really know where he is going. Jossed,He's a substitute to the former obstacle,who got a desk job(and the Cloaks are friends of Jaffers)
The unknown Cloak is the Angry Video Game Nerd
That Dude In The Suede will be killed off for real
The crew will eventually give a "The Reason You Suck" Speech to Malecite
The TGWTG team will defeat Malecite through the power of Internet Friendship
Cloak #4The fact that Film Brain is now dressed as one of the Cloaks, instead of his Harry Potter costume, will become a plot point later on (perhaps during the climax).
Jaffers will make an Heroic Sacrifice to stop MaleciteIn the climax of the movie, he will understand that the team TGWTG are pure enough to deserve the glove and will sacrifice himself to stop Malecite once and for all.
The Climax will have everyone summoning the person who's true of heartEach and every single reviewer will shout out what type of reviewer they are, ending with Ma-Ti shouting "Heart" and in an All Your Powers Combined moment, they will summon Captain Planet/Santa Christ/Donkey Kong Jesus on a cloud of smoke/some combination of the above. Jossed
Ma-Ti will have nothing to do with the "pure of heart" thingSeems a little too obvious to me. Jossed.
The Climax will be a Deus Angst Machina
More General: Santa Christ will appear
The story of Aeon and Malecitewas actually a LARP game instead of an ancient tale, and it took place in the early 80's instead of several centuries ago. The whole thing was just a LARP game that became a little too real. Malecite's outfit looks too modern to match with his anti-science attitude- but he was so into his character that he became him. Jaffers was the one who played Aeon, and he was lucky enough not to give in to the LARP power so he stayed his usual self while inside the book. The Voice told Team 2 about the tale in a way that made it sound like it was an actual historic story.
If someone runs out of magic, they dieThey have hyped this for a while, so it must be dangerous.
Malecitewill kill everyone except the Critic And then, after defeat Malecite, he will use the Power Glove to resurrect everybody.
Spoony's Ring is Aeon'sThe ring in the Voice's flashback is the same color as Spoony's. It can't be a coincidence.
Linkara will challenge Maleciteto a duel. Linkara wields magic and he has his magic gun with him. He may felt that as the team's expert on magic, he should fight Malecite.
Aeon's Ring is Ma-Ti's Heart RingIt HAS to be!
Doctor Insano will make a cameo during the final battle against MaleciteBecause if the existance of science itself is threatened, of course he'd show up to defend it! Jossed. He never showed up.
Ma-Ti will do nothing of use.They're pushing it waaaay too hard with the pure heart thing, so Ma-Ti saving anything is now far too obvious. Either they're going for another 'all the cast are complete morons' thing like last year or it's all a mislead and Ma-Ti will remain pointless as he has always been. Alternatively, he would have been of use but they keep sending him away so he misses all his chances. Jossed. He saved the day.
Ma-Ti will show up with a flock of poorly animated birds.Ma-Ti will show up to fight Malecite and used his ring to summon up poorly animated birds like from Birdemic. They will be useless. Jossed
Aeon is Dr. Insano.It will be yet another origin story for Dr. Insano. Aeon used SCIENCE! to achieve eternal youth just like Malecite did with magic. Overtime he forgot his real identity and created the doctor we all know and love. And Malecite's magic will be no match for Insano's SCIENCE!
Ma-Ti and Spoony's Ring are both red herrings; Jew Wario will save the day.The Voice makes mention of a ring made by Aeon that can reflect Malecite's magic. This and frequent references to being strong of heart would point to either Spoony's ring or Ma-Ti being the key to beating Malecite. But thus far, the only thing that has actually been SHOWN reflecting magic has been Jew Wario's crotch. Can you say "crotch ring?"
This movie will spell bad news for Linkara.According to Suburban Knights, using magic drains your life-force. This cannot be good for Linkara, who uses a magic gun that's already cursed. Especially since the weapon is powered by an Eldritch Abomination-infused child, with evil parents.
The Big Bad survived the final battleMalecite, despite appearing to be killed, will reappear as a Nostalgia Critic antagonist, the lost artifacts (or at least his own) in his possession.
Maleciteis a Straw Hypocrite. After all, we know Aeon was chosen as the founder of modern society, and Malecite was left in the dust. When Malecite said "at least I'm not a hypocrite", he wasn't being stupid. He genuinely doesn't care about technology, and is only trying to destroy the modern world out of revenge for not being the founder of civilization. And to start a new world order. This also leads him to becoming a bigger monster. Much like Ghetsis.
Ma-Ti is the last descendant of Aeon
Linkara is a descendant of Malachite.It would fit. Not to mention that Malachite has been around for centuries, so he's bound to have a descendant
Next Anniversary Predictions
The Cinema Snob movie. Coming summer 2012.
The Snob, Cinema snob goes Hollywood.
Jaffers will return.Considering that Malecite shot him in the sky,and that he also shot spoony up the sky,and he circled a the world at least 2 times and he came backit's possible that he was shot with more force,he may come back,not knowing that the hand was destroyed,or will come back wanting revenge.
Linkara will get Malecite's Hand back, and utilize it, or attempt to, against The Entity.I mean, hey, one more weapon in the Arsenal of Freedom couldn't hurt.
When Ma-ti died he gave the Critic the power of the ringHis last words can be considered a Shout-Out to Captain Planet but, as the ring itself isn't anymore, it's possible that Ma-Ti received its power and then, gave them to the Critic.
One of the other Planeteers will be taking Ma-Ti's place for awhileAnd the Critic will treat that Planeteer as one big Replacement Scrappy.
Spoony really WILL review Final Fantasy XIII sometime.Complete with a seemingly random scream of "MA-TIIIIIII!!!" somewhere in the middle.
Nostalgia Critic and Nostalgia Chick will do a cross over where they mention Ma-TiLindsey visted Doug lately (as evidence by the two of them doing a commentary on their Ferngully review), which means they might have done a cross over review. The Critic will be feeling down about Ma-Ti and the Chick will try to cheer him up by pointing out the fact that her best friend died recently and then came back. Then Critic will point out that she came back evil and will not be cheered up at all.
The quest to bring Ma-Ti back will not be the fourth anniversaryIt seems unlikely that they'd wait an entire year to bring him back and the ending seemed to implay that the rest of the crew wouldn't be joining the Critic. Instead it'll be a short subplot taking place over the next few Nostalgia Critic episodes where the Critic recruits his various alter egos, such as Ask That Guy and the Bum to help him, while stopping every now and then to do reviews.
The ending is set almost a year later.It's the five stages of grieving. After almost a year, the crew will get over and used to Ma-Ti's death. Hence why we see Spoony reviewing Final Fantasy XIII in a flashback. The only one who hasn't gotten over it is the Nostalgia Critic. This is how bringing back Ma-Ti could take place in the 4th anniversary-because it's closing into that date.
Critic and co. were pure hearted enough to find the Gauntlet.Yes, they were mostly there because of money or forced, but not once did any of the group think of taking the hand and using it as a weapon. In fact, after they realised what it was, they STILL chose not to use it. Therefore, as they sought not the gauntlet's powers, they were pure hearted enough to find it.
We won't see Critic's epic search for the Necronomicon, but we'll see the outcome.And we won't like it.
Ma-Ti might become a black lantern.Well he does have a power ring, and he wouldn't be the first TGWTG Character to come back as one.
The Critic Planned To Get Malecite's Hand For Yearshe probably Got the chain letter in the late 90s,searched auction sites for a good quality copy of the GNN Broadcast,observed Jaffers friends from a distance,gave a desk job to one of the obstacles,flew Suede to Chicago To take the guardian position,waited 2 years for Suede to get friendly with the other guardians,and them went after it.
Dr. Insano was going to get the gauntlet but was scared off by Malecite.He probably followed Spoony and his magic meter (He had a gaydar, I'm sure he had a magic meter) detected Malecite and realized that he was very powerful, hates science, and won't hesitate to kill.
The quest for the Necronomicon will be done by the Critic and everyboy's side characters.Linkara said that everybody was adventered out and wouldn't be up for another one of the Critic's zany schemes. The critic responds by sending a letter to Chester. We can assume that he may have sent letters to everybody else's drop-ins as well. 90s Kid, Professor Celluloid, Dr. Insano (the one that isn't Spoony's other personality, that is), anybody from Team N Chick, Yanki J, Space Guy, etc.
Santa Christ will revive Ma-TiBut the effects are only temporary.
Ma-Ti will stay dead.To show that death in Channel Awesome actually can have an effect. If the Critic tries to resurrect Ma-Ti, it'll only be temporary. Or he wouldn't be living. Ma-Ti will be Deader Than Dead, because the way he died was the best moment of his life, and a Heroic Sacrifice. And, unlike the Critic, he didn't die for comedy.
Aeon built the other Planeteer rings after his first one was a success in battleHe even constructed a homunculus that could be summoned when the five rings combined powers. He wound up giving the rings to Gaia as some from of deal.
Malachite will undergo a Rogues-Gallery Transplant.Possibly even appearing in Linkara's Rogues Gallery.
Malachite will come back.Maybe not next year, maybe not next month, but he'll come back someday, somehow. According to this video he's not dead— he was banished to... a coffee shop for all eternity!
Next years anniversary will be a Villain Team-Up.Now hear me out on this one, because I know this was suggested before. Doug mentioned in the video explaining what his 3rd year idea originally was that he had planned to somehow have all the villains from the Channel Awesome-verse come together. Even though the Pirates vs. Ninjas thing got scrapped, is it not possible that he would still find that to be a good idea? Also, in the Alternate Ending on the DVD, we see Mechakara, a popular villain from Atop the Fourth Wall, finding Malechites Hand under some rubble. And this was stated by Doug himself to be a hint as to what will happen next year! Since, to me anyway, it doesn't really make sense for only one villain from one show on TGWTG to have the spotlight, it really seems like a possibility that there might end up being more...
The fourth-year will be a Linkara piece — at least as much as SK was a Ma-Ti piece.
The fourth year will come about by someone fucking up.
The power of Ma-Ti's ring is not actually Heart.
