[[folder: Lora's fate]]
* Does the game ever say how (or when exactly after [[spoiler:the fall of Torna]]) Lora [[spoiler:passed away?]] Or is it more or less left to the player's imagination?

Added DiffLines:

** Remember that the Spirit Crucible was an area that's not only arduous to get through, but extremely dangerous for Blades--i.e., most of the party--to even be in. It's not as simple as going down a few steps and retrieving a cool weapon for your trouble. If Rex doesn't currently ''need'' to go there, and especially if Gramps isn't sure he can handle it, he could well have decided it was better not to direct him there. In Nia's case, she acknowledges in-game that people have suffered and died because she was scared to reveal her true nature (whether or not she could have actually saved Vandham, she still seemed to view his death as due to her failure to act.) It's not an inconsistency in the story, it's a character flaw she overcomes in the crucible.

Added DiffLines:

** Perhaps the idea is that a blade's master needs to be someone who is brave enough to go out into the world with their blade and accumulate a wide range of experiences, even if the monsters present in nearly every area would make that difficult. If people know that they could get harmed for trying to resonate with a Core Crystal, then it helps weed out the people who might resonate with their blade, and then end up hiding in their house with it for the rest of their life. Or it could just be an unintended consequence of how Core Crystals are designed that was never given the opportunity to be fixed, and not an intentional feature.


** One fan theory is that Galea did split in half, one half becoming the Infernal Guldo. The only real evidence for this is that the ID tag Rex finds on the guldo looks like her, but this could have been a case of a reused asset and isn't followed up on regardless. On the other hand, Klaus notes "many" people disappeared into distant dimensions when he performed his experiment. It's possible only he was split in two, perhaps because he was at the epicenter of the event (Galea was very near him admittedly, but perhaps that simply meant she got to go to the same universe as the part of Klaus that became Zanza). Klaus likewise thinks he was split in two as punishment, and if this is the case then there'd be no reason for Galea to also be split. Since we aren't given a concrete explanation beyond this for why Klaus was split in half, we can't speculate much on why Galea wasn't.

* The reason why the Architect is the way that he is now is because Klaus' creative half was left behind in the modern-day Alrest, while his God-seeking half was transported to the World of the Titans to become Zanza. However, if only half of Klaus, who kickstarted the project to create a new universe, was transferred, how exactly did Galea make it in one piece to become Meyneth? Why didn't one half of her stay behind in the old world?


** Who says nobody tried? Maybe they tried but never reached the top

** Who says nobody tried? Maybe they tried but never reached the toptop.
** Reaching the world tree was relatively easy. Climbing it and finding an entrance was still hard and many would die trying. Then, if you do manage to reach the inside, you'll now have to deal with some extremely powerful automated defense robots that can even be a challenge for a full party with the Aegis. The few who made it that far died fighting them or were forced to flee, at which point they're in for another perilous journey back down. Amalthus was the first who managed to make it all the way and come back alive.

[[folder: Origins of the Nopon, Gormotti, Indoline, and so on]]
* In Xenoblade 1, the origin of the non-human species is Zanza, who was effectively a god and created new life as he wished. Xenoblade 2 however takes place on the remains of Earth. Where did all these other species come from? Did Klaus create them for some reason? Or did this Earth have multiple sapient species to begin with?

** A major reason for that is indicated during Amalthus' final scene where he states he cannot die before he's met the Architect and erased everything with his own hands. He wants the world to end, but he wants it to be done on his terms and he wants to be the one to do it. As for Malos, having inherited Amalthus' hatred of humans means Malos hates Amalthus to some extent as well and thus stopped working with him as soon as he no longer needed him.

* Why did they start fighting each other? It seems like they both still share the same goal of [[OmnicidalManiac destroying everything]]. If they'd worked together they almost certainly would have succeeded.

** It's not confirmation, but there is a line of speculation that can give us an answer. Namely we may have an answer if we interpret Mythra's description of a Blade's bond with their Driver to be literal. If a Blade and Driver are indeed one in body and soul, then it makes sense that only the "body" of their Driver can be successfully infused into them in a way that enables them to not return to their core. That infused piece of their Driver's body and soul continues to live, or at least function, inside the Blade, enabling the Blade to retain their form and memories despite their Driver's independent body having died (hence why multiple times a Flesh Eater is described as having a "human life" inside them). Likewise, the former Jin described the process of becoming a Flesh Eater as a way of creating a bond between the Blade and their "partner," further suggesting that not just any flesh can create a Flesh Eater. And so since Nia's "father" refers to Nia's new state as her "sister" living on inside her, the most likely scenario is that she was Nia's Driver.

[[folder:Nia's former Driver?]]
* Is there anything official in the game or otherwise that says if it was Nia's "father" or her "sister" who was her previous Driver? We know she became a Flesh Eater using the girl's cells, so I'd always assumed she was the Driver, but on a wiki and some updated entries here they instead state that the girl's father was Nia's Driver, and that he had her take in his daughter's flesh after her death so that she could keep "living" through Nia. It makes some sense that he would be the Driver rather than his deathly-ill daughter (we know he sought healing Blades), yet for the life of me I can't recall anything in the game that said this was how it happened (the alternative being that the girl was Nia's Driver and Nia got infused while the girl was still alive).


*** Or he could be the opposite, [[spoiler: a Titan who has only just completed the transition from being a blade, and still retains some of their properties. He even has a limited ability to regenerate, and he's tied himself to one person almost as if resonated, rather than producing life-forms of his own.]]
