[[folder:The Pistil Ejection System]]
* Nobody likes a nitpicker, but how exactly does the Pistil ejection system work as seen in episode 9? At first it seems like it armors the girl and completely ejects the mount she's on, then locks down the Franxx until it can be recovered, which makes perfect sense. Problems start to arise when we see the mount is still intact in front of Goro when he's alone in the cockpit. So how the hell was Ichigo extracted downward in the time period seen without ripping her limbs off, and what victor was used to launch her from the cockpit? The possibility exists there's a redundant mount that plugs the hole as part of the lockdown, but this comes across as over-engineering (then again, that doesn't seem out of character for their apparent creator...).
** This way. The upper armor half rolls in, the saddle pulls down, releasing her limps, and the lower half of the armor shell rolls in within the same second while the pistil in in midair. Once the pod (seed shell) is established, it's ejected as seen. From there, the saddle is pulled back up and in starting position once more. In short, the escape pod might be a compressed portion placed in front of the saddle and easily replaced once going in for maintenance.
*** Makes perfect sense. Thank you.

vision and in starting position once more. In short, her last moments as a ghost that her people usually don't have such a big tail. Yes, Klaxo Sapiens do have a tail, but not even close to fully operational octopus-like tentacle.Also, again in her vision, her folk wears quite a casual clothing, while our [[{{GreenSkinnedSpaceBabe}} Bluish Beauty]] is dressed in what looks like a swimsuit. Overheating problems? And third thing: everyone in her vision has a pair of horns growing above their foreheads, just like Zero Two's. But Princess has a non-symmetrical pair of horns from back and fore side of her head. With all that said... What is she, actually?

So, was she specially designed to be like that by her people? Like,
the escape pod might champion of her race, empowered to lead every single remaining Klaxo Sapiens into the [[{{Film/EndersGame}} all-or-nothing battle against VIRM]]?

... Or was she merely a mutant, put into special suit and equipped with some combat augmentations (the tail) just because she for some reason couldn't be used as a pilot of a mecha?
In general, I wonder if 001 is the most badass creature of her time (and, almost, of our time) since she was the one to stand against VIRM twice? Or is she a poor child unable to

[[folder:Hiro piloting Delphinium]]
* How was Hiro able to pilot Delphinium with Ichigo in episode 15? In that very episode they explained that Hiro could only pilot with Zero Two due to him ingesting her Klaxosaur blood as a child so how could it work? For that matter, why was it even necessary for him to take Goro's place and leave Goro on the ground? Couldn't Hiro have just entered the cockpit and have Goro and Ichigo pilot Delphinium to reach Strelitzia? As far as I can tell this is a strange plot hole that could have easily been avoided.
** Judging by their memory synchronization, his desperation to see and immense love for Zero Two was able to serve as motivation to allow him to achieve it with Ichigo. Who was able to due to her own feelings for Hiro and finally putting aside her possessive and jealousy issues for his happiness.
** In episode 2 he was shown to be able to connect with Ichigo and pilot Delphinium for at least for a short time. It could be that their mutual need to reach Zero Two was sufficient to keep the connection active for long enough to achieve this goal.
** He had amazing aptitude for piloting as a child, which is implied to be because of a driving motivation to escape the Garden and the fate of his fellow parasites. It could be recovering his lost memories and personality restored his ability to pilot with anyone. [[SingleTargetSexuality Although, he probably doesn't care at this point]].
** Just about anyone can pilot with anyone, hence the point of them offering the chance to switch partners around like two episodes prior. However, the more synchronized the duo is the better the result. Hiro was basically the genius of the group when he was younger and it's heavily implied that the only reason he ever started having problems to begin with were because his memories were tampered with, which led to changes in his personality as well. Had he never met Zero Two to begin with or never had his memories altered, it's likely that he and his original partner would've worked out just fine and he never would have had any issues. The Klaxosaur blood then only matters in terms of a regular human being able to pilot with Zero Two specifically and not die. It doesn't give them the ability to pilot in general.

There are thousands of ships and this is only matters in terms of a regular human being able to pilot with Zero Two specifically their "Air Force" and not die.

[[folder:Futoshi's Health Issues]]
* In episode 16, why was Futoshi throwing up his food? Did he have some sort of eating disorder?
** He's sick, probably from the child fever, and trying to hide it. Some of the others have already gone through it.
** With the repeated hints that the kids will not be able to grow up into adulthood I took his inability to keep food down as the beginning stages of his bodies preprogrammed shutting down processes. Similar to how Miku's hair was shown starting to go grey.

[[folder:What Zero Two thought of Hiro]]
* So, did Zero Two think Hiro was her Darling when they met back in Episode 1 or was she completely oblivious the entire time? I don't think she'd go around throwing all those hints and specific references to anyone, and Hiro in Episode 15 does realise that she never truly forgot, but she still called him fodder as her mental state went worsening. Was it just because she couldn't jog his memories and ended up thinking she mistook him for someone else?
** Zero Two has better recall than Hiro, but her memory was also mostly erased. They both felt attracted to each other but it's unlikely she was certain that Hiro was her real Darling until episode 12/13.
** The manga clarifies - Zero Two was convinced she really had found her Darling after he survived their third flight together, but the fact he never remembered her resulted in her becoming increasingly bitter she'd been "tricked" by a lookalike, contributing to her downward spiral.

[[folder:Sexuality and Piloting]]
* If Ikuno found another lesbian pilot, would they be able to pilot together? I mean, I thought so, because of the Nines, but it seems that the Nines don't have gender, so Male/Female relationships might really be the exclusive relationship accepted by the Franxx outside of Genderless/Genderless. Does sexual/romantic attraction between the parts play a role in it? Would Mitsuru and Hiro be able to pilot like they mentioned before out of sheer PowerOfFriendship?
** Later revelations make this unlikely, since the roles of pistil and stamen are defined by genetic material. Which puts the Nines in an interesting spot, but their situation is ambiguous and they all pilot AceCustom frames, so it's possible they're an engineered exception.
** Episode 23 confirms that the Nines can act as both pistils and stamens so they are the exception. For everyone else it needs to be a male/female pairing since the Franxx are based on the Klaxosaur system that works the same way. Sexuality has nothing to do with it besides how it might affect the pilots' ability to synch with each other psychologically.

** The wedding raid was a show of power. There's absolutely no reason to use that much force to subdue a group of children, except to scare the hell out of them and get them to stop listening to Kokoro and celebrating her deviant actions and ideas. The reason why sex, pregnancy, and childbirth are forbidden is, of course, if a pistil becomes pregnant she can no longer pilot her Franxx effectively and APE loses a pawn. They care little about the morality of it because they only see humans as tools, which is why they also overlook any sort of rebellion brimming among them. Why care? From their perspective, the real enemies are the klaxosaurs and regardless of the human pilots' personal feelings towards APE, they will all die in the final battle anyway.

** First of all, not all members of APE were VIRM so any decisions made by them solely based on that threat would have required tricking the other members into agreeing with it. Second of all, APE realizes the value of Squad 13 that comes from their unique upbringing and being allowed individuality. Squad 13 had proven to be very effective as they were so wiping al their memories would likely greatly diminish their combat values. Hiro and Zero Two in particular were essential for taking control of Star Entity, which was the key to ending the war (or at least that was what VIRM wanted the other members of APE to think), so they couldn't just mind wipe them and destroy their connection. Basically they only brainwashed Mitsuru and Kokoro since they were the two most dangerous people in terms of their actions and rebellion so as to minimize the loss of valuable soldiers.

** Or it could be part of the saurification that the parasites are slowly undergoing (assuming it and the "child fever" aren't the same thing...) and in his case, it started with his digestive system, which is slowly being rerouted into a more "klaxosaur-friendly" diet (aka magma), and him being left in the dark about it, tries to reason away "why" he can't hold in his food anymore.
** But how does it have anything to do with child fever? Why was is sad for Zorome?
** "Child Fever" might be what the adults are telling the children that the "saurification" is when they get their "fevers"(as the immune-system reacts to the yellow blood-cells and tries to fight it, showing incompatibility until the next degree of assimilation is complete and progressing.) The children might know it as "child fever" but the adults knows it as "saurification" which is closer to the truth since the adults are rarely honest with the parasites from the start. Why Zorome is sad? Well, Futoshi tried to play off a serious problem as nothing, making Zerome only worrying more which also makes him sad since Futoshi is basically ''lying'' to him by trying to play it off without being honest about it.
** That really belongs as a WMG--there's no evidence that child fever and saurification are the same thing as of episode 16. Saurification has only been applied to Zero Two and Hiro, the latter of which has not had the child fever yet; Mitsuru is the only one who had the fever, which came unusually early for him, until episode 16 where we find out that the entire squad is getting it in quick succession without their handlers around. The point of Futoshi's illness is that it's [[OOCIsSeriousBusiness so out of character for him to avoid eating that he must be suffering a lot]], which causes Zerome to realise that their days are numbered.
