* Juzo Mido experiments on Revenants and the Lost. What status aliment does he inflict? Inhibit. Which shuts down the powers of both, making all the harder for them to fight back.

Added DiffLines:

** Alternatively, he doesn't drop one because he explodes rather than turning to ash after being defeated, which most likely destroyed his heart and perma-killed him, leaving no Vestige behind. After all, the Protagonist certainly doesn't mind taking his sword and using it, so why would they feel differently about using his blood code?


* Imagine how dangerous the Protagonist would be if they were ever to become a Lost. In addition to being insanely strong they would also be able to absorb the blood code of any Revenant they killed and grow stronger.

* Given the vampiric nature of the Revenants, [[spoiler: even if they somehow bonded with a God Arc or were able to fight an Aragami to a victory, what happens if a Revenant consumed ''Oracle Cells''? Possibly something far, far more dangerous than even what was seen in the game perhaps.]]

Silva also created the Goal of the Mists to keep the Lost and the Revenants contained so neither would threaten the outside world, similar to how Hades kept the dead locked away in the underworld.]]




to:

* How is Io able to become such a good fighter, despite telling the Protagonist that she is not one after they meet? There are actually two ways this can be interpreted. [[spoiler:It could be that her dedication to serving the Protagonist as their attendant gave her the strength and drive to become stronger. At the same time, it could be that her desire to [[GrewBeyondTheirProgramming grow and gain a purpose beyond just being the protagonist's attendant allowed her to realize her full potential.]]]]


* The Cathedral of The Sacred Blood is a giant Labyrinth which has earned a spot as ThatOneLevel on the YMMV page. The Successor of the Ribcage [[spoiler:, Aurora Valentino, may have done this on purpose, in order to help protect Karen, who dwells beneath her crypt and is the source of the Blood Beads helping to sustain the Revenants.]]

Casual looters would take one look at it and turn around, and only the most determined Revenants would even get halfway through the maze... and if they somehow got to the end without turning into Lost, they would likely be running on fumes and be easy prey for Aurora's Attendant.]]


* Louis/Rui chooses to be a JackOfAllStats because a leader must be able to adapt and react to any situation. Choosing a more balanced and versatile skill set so he'll be ready for anything.

* Bayonets using ichor instead of regular bullets: Not only would ammunition be difficult to produce in large quantities in the devastated world, they probably wouldn't be powerful enough to do any real damage to creatures like the Lost. Ichor on the other hand can be turned into powerful munitions thanks to the Revenant's powers, is plentiful, can be gained by battling enemies, and would not weigh them down like regular ammo. Making it a perfect alternative.

** Riki's code, Assassin, is a GlassCannon that specializes in sneak attacks and offers large buffs to offense as long as you avoid being hit. Representing how Riki would fight when it suited him, but was always ready to cut his loses and run when things looked bad.
** Yakumo's code, Atlas, focuses on close combat with tremendous physical strength and endurance. The titan Atlas was known for holding the world on his shoulders, and Yakumo is willing to put himself in harms way and endure enormous struggle to protect his friends.
** What did Prometheus steal from the gods to give to humanity? Fire. Now what element does Louis make use of?

** This also gets reflected elsewhere [[spoiler: such as the "Dwellers in the Dark" ending, where Io becomes a tree that helps protect Vein in an identical fashion to Karen becoming the Source of the Blood Beads keeping at least some of the Revenants sane and stable. Or the fact that Karen's attire as a Successor invokes a very similar WomanInWhite role to Io.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Assuming that the Protagonist has the power to choose whether or not they'll absorb a blood code, it could be that they decided to reject it. Since they didn't want any trace of that monster to live on, especially within themselves.

** [[spoiler:Karen]]'s blood code is Demeter, the goddess of harvest. [[spoiler:As the Successor of the Heart, she produces the blood springs and thirst quenching bloodbeads which allow the Revenants to survive.]]

[[spoiler:Isis was also the wife of Osiris, and went to great length to find her husband after he was killed and dismembered by his brother Set. Aurora became a successor and placed her crypt above Karen's in order to protect her.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Jack Rutherford mentions that [[spoiler:a Successor should shape their crypt into something that puts them at ease. Aurora, the successor of the Ribcage, chose to be entombed close to someone she loved.]]


* Oliver Collins is a very strong CrutchCharacter who can kill most early enemies in one or two hits. Is it any wonder he becomes a boss after succumbing to bloodlust and turning into a lost?

* Io's appearance is ''startlingly'' [[IdenticalStranger similar]] to Karen, Louis' sister. Beyond the obvious color changes and looking more disheveled and {{Stripperific}}, there's arguably a very justified reason for this that the game never touches on: [[spoiler: as the several Attendants are all ArtificialHuman clones made by Cruz specifically to care for the Successors, it's entirely plausible that Cruz modeled all of them after Karen, who specifically was her caretaker during Project Q.U.E.E.N.]]

* The game mentions in background lore that the Gen One revenants where deployed against and successfully drove out or killed all the "Horrors" in the city and surrounding area. [[spoiler:It's why we never encounter any Aragami in the game, they'd been driven back by the time the Goal of Mists trapped everything inside. There's no telling if this means Revenants are some form of God Eater or if their own abilities are just effective due to their nature, but they apparently work regardless.]]



* TheReveal towards the end of the game that beyond the Gaol of the Mist [[spoiler: lies [[VideoGame/GodEater Aragami]]]] flips the entire plot on its head. [[spoiler: Not only are Aragami canonically a nigh-unstoppable existence of ExtremeOmnivore that can automatically devour whatever they come into contact with, but they can evolve based on that. The Revenants we see victimized turn to dead ash like any other, but if one were to able to genuinely consume a Revenant in whole, ''god only knows'' what might result!]]

** [[spoiler:If Aragami can only be killed by God Arcs, then literally ''everything'' humanity did was AllForNothing. Let that sink in. Everyone who was made a Revenant, or gave up their humanity to become one, to combat them were doomed to failure. Cursed to fight an unending battle they can never win. Dying and reviving endlessly until their hearts are destroyed or they succumb to blood lust and are doomed to spend eternity as a mindless monster.]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[MadScientist Juzo]] [[TheSociopath Mido]] does not drop a blood code. This may have been intentional meta/story wise, as [[spoiler: the developers did not want to give him [[HateSink any potential sympathetic qualities or character development through vestiges]], which did give a lot of backstory through other characters.]]

Added DiffLines:

* [[spoiler:Karen, the successor of the Heart]] is hidden deep inside the Cathedral, protected by the successor of the Ribcage. Kinda like how the ribcage protects vital organs.
