** Keep in mind, that while the retcon is canon. The Onion Knight characters are more "Nostalgic" in Japan which I think was the point, as Nostalgia and Fanservice were really the only two reasons Dissidia was made.

The Onion Knight characters are more "Nostalgic" in Japan which I think was the point, as Nostalgia and Fanservice were really the only two reasons Dissidia was made. Even if that was only meant for Dissidia, they were pretty much forced to carry Onion Knight over to Theatrhythm being TheArtifact. Though that doesn't excuse Luneth, Arc, Refia and Ingus being absent in Curtain Call, especially since they have two separate Tifas and Yunas.

***What I think it was that Cid and the children did get caught in the time freeze, but the crystals guided them to the floating continent when the time was right. Because Unei's spirit was in the dream world, she was still aware of the passing of time. If she said time was stopped for 1000 years, it probably was.


** It's the [[FinalFantasyIX Kuja plan]]. No point in the world going on if you won't live to see it, right?

Added DiffLines:

** While I haven't seen any details in the story to confirm it, it's entirely possible that Xande was a bit of a {{Jerkass}} to begin with. Might've been a dumb idea to give him the "[[BlessedWithSuck gift]]" of mortality, it'd make sense as an example of KickTheSonOfABitch.

Added DiffLines:

** Dissidia seems to waffle on whether the characters are actually pulled from their timeline or are just sort of AU versions. But either way, it's also implied that there are at least several different copies of any given world. In one world, the Onion Knight and his companions did the work; in another, it was Luneth et al.


* So this is taken from the AdaptationDisplacement entry. The [=DS=] remake gives the Onion Knights set identities, and these identities are official canon as the people who saved the world. But in ''Dissidia'', the hero is the Onion Knight, who is definitely not Luneth, Arc, Refia, or Ingus--you can make him look like Luneth or Ingus, but it's purely cosmetic. And Dissidia... is also official? It seems like ContinuitySnarl to me; is one more official than the other or what? Or is Dissidia set in some kind of AU universe?

* "Light and darkness, one cannot exist without the other, just like ''the sun and the world''". Wait, what? If the Earth disappeared somehow, wouldn't the sun just continue on burning anyways?

*** In addition to that, the Cloud is always made up of ''both'' Light and Darkness. Either Darkness revolving around a core of Light, or Light surrounding a core of Darkness.

** [[DwarfFortress Ricochets]]. More seriously... They [[StrongFleshWeakSteel shatter]], and each piece does a certain amount of damage on average?

** They probably have Tolkien-style elfy immortality. Or to put it in a less weird way; they have what our article on {{Immortality}} calls Type II. They probably are immune to disease and have no fear of death by old age, but they can be mortally wounded, etc.

Added DiffLines:

*** No. It was stated that it was also the Cloud of Darkness last time as well. The Cloud of Darkness is a being that arises when an imbalance occurs, light or dark. So we're back to square one. Why is it the Cloud of "Darkness"?

** Or maybe that one arrow turned into a [[MoreDakka Rain of Arrows]], [[RagnarokOnline Double Strafe]] style?

Added DiffLines:

*** Probably, yeah. It just feels like an abrupt cut between "Dispute over plan that could have split the whole team up" and "OK, we'll just ignore what she said and get on with it". And they could have resolved it with maybe two or three lines of dialogue.
