* Basically, everything is pretty much canon. [[spoiler:The Devourer basically pulls whatever data obstructs its ideal and rewrites the world as it chooses between installments.]]

* Bullet Heaven may not be canon, because it features the party fighting [=Godcat=], in which the party has never seen [=Godcat=] before EBF4, and after [=EBF4=], [=Godcat=] flew off to make a new world for cats. Adventure Story may be canon, where in the intro [=cutscene=], Natalie is shown introducing [=NoLegs=] to Matt, showing that it takes place before [=EBF2=] (where Matt casually summons [=NoLegs=]), but after [=EBF1=] (Where [=NoLegs=] was an enemy). One More Final Battle and Brawl [=Royale=] are cannon due to Red Mage's appearance in Brawl [=Royale=] (opponent #3) and [=EBF2=] (the first shopkeeper), where he's even cited as "an old rival" (or something to that effect). The thing about White Mage though... I don't think that she's the same as Natalie. Maybe she's a twin or something. First of all, White Mage has [=heterochromia=], while [=Natz=] doesn't. Also, White Mage became a ninja in Brawl [=Royale=] (for some reason), while Natalie (who has only appeared in games after this one) consistently has piss-poor physical attack stats. I mean, you'd think that SOME of her [=ninjary=] would have carried over. She's the EIGHTH opponent in [=Royale=], just behind Lord [=Canti=] (whoever he is) and [=SS3=] Zombie Goku for crying out loud!

** Or perhaps this is a red herring, and "Red Mage Armor" stands for "An armorpiece formerly worn by a mage; that just so happens to be red."

*** Natalie can equip the sol spear in ''[=EBF5=]''. Since it's a reboot, however...

to:

*** About that ''Bullet Heaven'' bit; it's apparently possible that Godcat can't actually show herself to any party member yet, even though she's part of the boss sprite. As far as the party is concerned it could be the bird/dragon hybrid monster that's wreaking havoc with the world. For her to appear at all, though, this could possibly overlap with the theft of the Greenwood jewel in ''[=EBF4=]''. Each jewel giving Godcat some power might actually make sense, given [[spoiler:her surprise encounters in the midgame overlapping with the Greenwood and Whitefall jewel thefts]].

[[folder:Canonicity]]

So what exactly is canon in this world? Did Bullet Heaven and Adventure Story actually happen in between the main [=EBF=] games? Is One More Final Battle and Brawl Royale canon? Is the white mage from Black Mages 5 the same person as Natalie?

[[folder:Red Mage Armor]]

* Natalie is explicitly stated to use WhiteMagic and BlackMagic, making her a RedMage, but she is the only one who can't equip the Red Mage armor in the third game. [[FlatWhat What]].
** It's ''male'' Red Mage armour.
** [[FridgeLogic Wait, so Natalie can't wear pants?]] [[http://kupo707.deviantart.com/art/FF-Battle-2-Screenie-35450206 She's perfectly capable of doing so.]] [[RealWomenNeverWearDresses There's nothing preventing her from wearing mens' clothes]], unless there's some unstated rule saying she can only wear dresses.
** Maybe the clothes don't fit her? Also Natalie is actually closer to the Final Fantasy 3 & 4 class Sage than the Red Mage, as she excels in White and Black magic but [[SquishyWizard lacks physical ability]], unlike a Red Mage [[MagicKnight who can dish out and take a bit of damage]].
** That makes sense. After all, she has a much larger figure in one area than the men do. Of course, she has counterparts to a few of them. But the question is raised as to why she can't equip sol spear and Matt can't equip thunder spear. They're both spears, for Godcat's sake!
