Added DiffLines:

* How come [[spoiler:Mumkhar, Fiora, and Gadolt get unique face units? What's so special about them compared to Xord and the other mass-produced faces?]]

Added DiffLines:

** Stopping Zanza is not the only goal. Mercy killing the transformed High Entia is among the goals Dunban's group has in the game. He's referring to that.


* So... how exactly are [[spoiler:Machina]] made? I find it hard to believe that [[spoiler:a race who are essentially really advanced robotics are anatomically correct]], and the fact that juvenile [[spoiler:Machina]] look so different to adults that make me hesitant to believe it's by viviparous birth.

* I'm not sure how well I understood something that Dunban said, at the end of one of the Surprise Quests: [[spoiler:"Melancholy Tyrea" saw the eponymous assassin part ways with Melia and the others. After she left, Dunban said, "We and Tyrea share the same goal. Our paths are sure to meet again." I get that at the very least, Tyrea won't be trying to kill them, but she was trying to fulfill her mission to MercyKill her transformed mother, while Shulk and co. are getting ready to stop Zanza. I don't think "killing the god of the Bionis" is the goal Dunban was referring to, so my question is: what goal ''do'' these two parties have in common? Is it fighting for their people?]]

* How in the actual heck is the Nopon Sage 9,999 years old? Nopons live longer than Homs, but shorter thank High Entia, apparently, because it's stated in a quest that there's a Nopon's grammypon who's celebrating his 160th birthday, but 9,999 is much longer than any Homs, Nopon, High Entia, or hell, even [[spoiler: most Machina]]. HOW? Was he the first Nopon ever created? Are all Nopon descended from him and a deceased partner? Is he just lying? Who knows.

Added DiffLines:

** Because [[spoiler: Klaus' good side, the Architect revealed in XenobladeChronicles2, revealed alternate possibilities. Klaus' soul was fragmented, though the Architect side seems to be whole, albeit a dimensional portal on his left hemisphere. It is possible that Zanza's soul was further fragmented.]]


**** It is possible that this was made in Meyneth's image.



** Both it seems.

to:

** Both it seems. Then again, [[spoiler: Dickson would not betray Zanza and the passage of fate presented at that time.]]


Added DiffLines:

** [[spoiler: XenobladeChronicles2 reveals that the Architect is none other than Klaus' good half, while Zanza is his bad half. The earth-like image is just an illusion of the events before the story began. It is also possible that the Architect may have indirectly helped Shulk and his party, alongside Alvis (assumed to be Ontos in XC2) because Shulk's nature is a parallel reflection of the Architect.]]


* Not so much a complaint as an observation- does anyone else see the symbol of [[XenoSaga the Testaments]] on the back of Alvis's jacket? I can't shake the feeling that it's the exact same symbol, but heck if I can make any connection between Alvis and the Testaments- even speaking as someone who believes all the Xeno games are on the same timeline.

** [[spoiler: Considering the [[ScrewDestiny themes of the game]], it's doubtful that Shulk was ''actually'' his doppleganger. It's possible that Shulk was considered a good vessel because he happened to look and sound like Zanza/ Klaus did. After all, Zanza does note that his imprisonment was really not a big deal at all, so he would have been A-OK with being picky about appearances.]]

** The above answer is most likely correct. Egil seemed to assume that Shulk 99spoiler:was possessed by Zanza. He only realized that Shulk "retained his sense of self" when he spared his life after the battle]].
