Added DiffLines:

** Cats very much have the understanding of "friend" - its why they're kept as pets and why bringing dead mice to your doorstep. 2 is shown to indeed protect 1 on several occasions and brings him food. Rabbits are harder to say, and 3's peacekeeping behaviour is questionable, but for the most part he just sticks near the others.


* In the opening, we see the animals suits include shields to protect their faces and hide what they are, but after they return to base, those are never used again. Are the animals unable to put those shields down themselves? It leaves their heads extremely vulnerable. Likewise, why was 4 deployed without a face-covering mask? It might've kept him safe when 2 clawed out his eyes.

* Having members of three different species communicate, let alone cooperate is a bit far-fetched even by comic standarts. I mean, some of them (2 and 3 to be certain) even do not have concepts for "friend" and "foe" in their psyche as we understand it - only "food", "danger" and so on. But they clearly need to follow some sort of rules of engagement to function as a team, so they actually HAVE to have a conscience of a human (or something closely resembling it, like a dolphin) to do all this stuff - only they cannot communicate their thoughts properly.

* I do not see how the gear they are wearing could be removable. Its control systems have to be hardwired to the animals CNS to function, for one thing, and I doubt it is done through a handy plug socket. Considering the subjects are non-human, and, in the end, expendable, the process of cyborgisation is likely to be non-reversible. Certainly not by themselves and some random guy. So the ending may be considered a compromise between realism and the author's wish not to have a completely pitch-black and hopeless closure.

Added DiffLines:

** Part of it is probably some creative brain surgery and/or drugs and large amounts of behavioral training, but mostly they seem to be able to work as a team because 1 is smarter and bigger than 2 or 3 and can boss them around, and he's a dog - pack animal to the bone. He's the one who reacts immediately and decisively whenever the other two are threatened, too; I think we only see 2 back up 1 on one occasion, and that might just have been 2 taking advantage of 1 being threatened to flank their enemy. And they do seem to all have the concept "We3" hammered into them on the same level as kill, eat, shit and sleep, even if 2 and 3 have a more limited understanding of it.


** I may be misremembering, but it seemed as if 4 was rushed into the field. Facial armor seems like an odd thing to leave until the last moment, but it's possible that 4 didn't take as well as the earlier ones did to having its natural senses blocked off.

For that matter, preferring the open air on their faces may explain why 1, 2, and 3 don't deploy the shields themselves: not being armadillos, they don't really grasp what 'armor' does.


** Considering how much dogs hate to wear clothes, the real miracle is that they kept the titanium plating on in the first place.

** Bad news. Every year, in Real Life, vice units bust dog-fighting rings and have to put the dogs down. Not because they're "[[AxCrazy irredeemably vicious]]" - although a few are. They're killed, by the thousands, because the cost of screening out the crazy ones and then housing, healing, rehabilitating and finding homes for the redeemable majority is almost always more than local animal control agencies could possibly afford. (The Michal Vick dogfighting case was virtually the only exception.) But let's return to the [[NightmareFuel comparatively nicer]] world of ''We3:'' if it's a choice between "decommission, dismantle and remove mental conditioning" for several thousand dollars, or "poison them as they sleep" with twenty cents' worth of bleach, the accounting department is going to insist on the cheaper option.

** And even if the suits ''are'' removable, how did 1 and 2 get them off? It's not like one of those doggie sweaters you can wiggle your head out of if you try hard enough; they'd need thumbs to manipulate the suits in that fashion.

** They didn't know they could. Dr. Trendle is pretty clearly shocked at the end to see 1 and 2 doing just fine without their suits or medication. In fact, that's probably at least part of the reason why [[WeCouldHaveAvoidedAllThis he starts crying]] when he does.
