* TheReveal at the end, means that Mohlan Mohan Ghale ''[[spoiler: murdered a one-year-old baby]].'' He then has the audacity to leave a journal entry saying he [[spoiler: did it for Ajay.]]



* Ishawari's urn has her birth year labelled as 1968, and she and Mohan got married in 1981. Do the math, and she was no older than 13. While we don't know how old Mohan was, in the same journal entry where he says he was just married to Ishawari, he mentions he is to be transferred to the Royal Guard, which suggests he was old enough to have some experience in the military. So Ishawari was [[ArrangedMarriage married to a grown man when she wasn't even done with puberty yet.]] Bleeds into Fridge Brilliance if you assume that Pagan Min was much closer to her age than Mohan was (Mohan describes Pagan as "a bit young" in one of his 1986 journal entries) then it's easier to deduce why Ishawari formed a connection with Pagan. She wanted a relationship with someone her age, and a relationship that wasn't dictated for her without her consent. And if you subscribe to the hypothesis that Ishwari was trying to get Pagan Min to become less of a despot, it must have also been refreshing for her to be married to a man who actually listened to her, and wasn't raised in a culture where women were just meant to support men, and not have ideas of their own.

Added DiffLines:

** Speaking of Longinus, I just worked out something funny. He's a Christian priest( though a very [[ArtisticLicenseReligion unorthodox]] one), and he's supporting a rebellion against a tyrant king called ''Pagan''. RuleOfSymbolism much?


* In the beginning, just after meeting Pagan Min, you'll hear the lyrics "Should I stay or should I go?" from the song of the name. This is a subtle bit of {{Foreshadowing}} for the part of the game. If you leave despite Pagan Min asking you not to, you go on with the rest of the game, ''but if you stay '', [[spoiler:you'll activate the SecretEnding]].

* The way Sabal and Amita [[spoiler:die]] both reflect their attitude towards their followers. [[spoiler:Sabal, who [[AFatherToHisMen places the lives of his men before the mission]], chooses to face his death alone. Amita, who is willing to [[WeHaveReserves sacrifice her men for the sake of the mission]], throws her soldiers at you in a desperate attempt to save herself.]]

Added DiffLines:

** Assuming the "[[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gxhd2ObxKqU Longinus is Prosper Kouassi]]" theory is true, then Longinus' habits with a gun haven't really changed much: [[https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zi50wJJUBYY when meeting Kouassi for the first APR mission]], [[EstablishingCharacterMoment he quickly shows he's an arrogant hothead]] [[AffablyEvil by cheerfully explaining he's hiring the player to assassinate the Chief of Police]], and then [[RecklessGunUsage miming shooting his gun while saying "BAM!"]] - [[SeanConneryIsAboutToShootYou while he's pointing said gun right at the player]].



to:

* The individual stories of Kalinag the ancient warrior, Robert the British lieutenant, and Ajay the dutiful son, all share similar themes. While Ajay and Robert's stories are mostly similar in terms of how they both had the same visions of Shangri La and Kalinag's experiences, the two of them initially came to Kyrat for mundane reasons that quickly were put aside when something more major came up (Robert was there to train the Gurkhas when he got roped into the Shangri-La business, Ajay came to fulfill his late mother's wishes and got caught up in a civil war). Similarly, Kalinag was only sent to find Shangri-La and report back, but when he found the Rakshasa, he took it upon himself to drive the demons from the land. All three of them gradually get lost in their new goals, losing sight of where they came from in the first place and growing more dedicated to the new land they found themselves in. Ajay's fight against Pagan Min can even be compared to Kalinag's fight with the Rakshasa. The two antagonists are both invaders who have set themselves up as rulers of Kyrat and Shangri-La, and the two protagonists are also outsiders (Ajay was born in Kyrat, yes, but he left long before he could have ever remembered any of his time there) who make it their own personal mission to oust the invaders for the sake of the land.

While we don't know how old Mohan was, in the same journal entry where he says he was just married to Ishwari, he mentions he is to be transferred to the Royal Guard, which suggests he was old enough to have some experience in the military.

* In the Negotiation Ending (talk with Pagan Min at the end of the game instead of shooting him immediately), he reveals that [[spoiler: he originally intended to hand control of his kingdom to Ajay all along (and will still do so, even after all that has happened). If Ajay had just stayed at the dinner table at the start of the game, Pagan would have led him to Lakshmana, let him place his mother's urn there, then hang out with Ajay - the son of the woman he loved - to groom him to be the next king. In fact, if you trigger the hidden ending (stay at the dining hall at the beginning of the game for fifteen minutes, just like Pagan asked you to) this is ''exactly'' what he does. This bypasses all of the revolutionary bloodshed, betrayal and destruction that happens in a normal playthrough where you just get up and leave. What's the name of Far Cry 4's main theme? The Clash' ''Should I stay or should I go''.]]

** Amita is also noticeably cool to Ajay, believing Sabal brought him to strengthen his position in the Golden Path. [[spoiler: He could be right but Ajay has the opportunity to turn this around on Sabal.]]

* Longinus frequently uses a pistol as to GivingSomeoneThePointerFinger. However is one looks close to his finger placement you see that he keeps his finger off the trigger. Which is a fundamental part of gun safety.... Now if he could just not point it at people.

* Why does no one know where Lakshmana is? [[spoiler: They're lying so that you'll stay and do their dirty work for them.]]


* Pagan Min acts like a PapaWolf, killing his men for shooting at you and then inviting you up for supper. He then talks about how he and Ajay's mother used to be lovers. We, eventually, discover this is because [[spoiler: Pagan Min cherishes the son of his beloved and wants to had the country over to him.]] but Ajay may believe Pagan Min thinks Ajay is his ''son.'' [[spoiler: In fact, it's just that he doesn't care about Ajay being the son of his hated enemy, only that he's the son of his beloved Ishawara.]]
** Pagan Min may have intended to [[spoiler: install Ajay as his heir]] in order to demoralize the Golden Path. While Ajay is the son of his beloved Ishwara, he's also known as the son of Mohlan Ghale and the Golden Path is very likely to have serious issues fighting against him. This, ironically, would be a great move for bringing the land to peace.

** Notably, Ajay is likely to be a figure to appeal to both factions and capable of uniting them since he's both the son of Mohlan Ghale and Ishwara plus a moderate Western-educated progressive. The fact he's personally won the war of them means he should be able to step into the leadership of the Golden Path if he [[spoiler: kills the two leaders.]] Indeed, he should have no difficulty [[spoiler: with Pagan Min's former followers either since he was named Pagan Min's heir.]]
