* EveryoneCallsHimBarkeep because his species don't use names, instead identifying themselves by some other means. IIRC, none of the Hypello have ever been given names on screen in either game, and this would explain why it doesn't seem to have occured to anyone to ask.

ask.

[[WMG: Wakka and Lulu were always meant to get married, it just turned into a PerfectlyArrangedMarriage]]
Considering how short life expectancy in Shinra was, there might have been a traditional (if not legal) obligation for single men to care for the widows of their deceased brethren; in a mostly monogamous society, that meant the man would literally marry his dead brother's wife and any children they had would be considered to belong to the brother for purposes of deciding inheritance. Wakka and Lulu may have already been considered married in the eyes of the community upon Chappu's death, or they were engaged. The journey cemented/deepened their relationship with each other such that, two years later, Lulu is about to bear Wakka's child as she would have already been expected to do, but the game presents the pregnancy as a result of love.


[[WMG: This game was inspired by TheCrystalMaze.]]
The spheres have a lot of flat surfaces and jagged edges due to the graphical limitations, and one day the resident Anglophile (hey, us westerners have Otakus...) among the developers was watching an episode of TheCrystalMaze, noticed the [=PS2=]'s graphical limitations made the spheres look like the crystals, and pitched the idea of FFX-2 being a game in which you run around puzzle dungeons collecting these "crystals."

In the Good Ending, Yuna is content and happy. She will always remember Tidus, but she is ready to move on with her life and embrace the future. In the "Perfect" Ending, she once again returns to the arms of Tidus; instead of dealing with her loss normally like every other person on Spira, she finds a way to circumvent it. To cheat it. One wonders what would happen to her if Tidus was to die a second time, considering this proof that she is ultimately unable to deal with loss and move forward to the future.

* While Yuna seems happy in the good ending, the HundredPercentCompletion ending sheds some doubt on Tidus' return, and implies he might not be around for long.

Because there is no one on Spira who would ever wish for Sin to return, but Jyscal Guado is just loyal enough to beckon Seymour to return, and Seymour, in turn, is crazy enough to bring Sin back.

[[WMG: The Special Dresspheres offer a glimpse at the Aeons YRP would have produced if they had chosen to become Fayth]]

The Special Dresspheres are unique to each character and seem to call upon aspects of their personality. Yuna's Floral Fallal features the flower she shares her name with and is magic oriented, Rikku's Machina Maw is a machine (fitting for an Al Bhed) and Paine's Full Throttle...tries to be Gothic just like her?

This is because the Special Dresspheres are attuned to a sort of "Fayth Potential" each an every Spiran has and are fashioned after the sort of Aeon a character would have produced had they become a Fayth in a temple (or for the Final Aeon) before Sin was destroyed.
Of course the actual Aeons would have not featured the girls' bodies and would have had better sounding names (if Aeons don't simply use the name of the person who became their Fayth)

Yuna's Aeon would have been an elfin woman wrapped in that huge flower dress from the Floral Fallal
Rikku's Aeon would have looked very much the same as the machina featured in the dressphere, only without Rikku riding on it.
Payne's Aeon would have had a bird-like head or upper body where Payne is positioned in the Full Throttle.

* This could explain why Yuna breaks up with Tidas in Will. She noticed there is something very wrong with Tidas. Or maybe it was just she realizes just how dangerous bringing back the dead really is.

Added DiffLines:


[[WMG: Angra Mainyu, Zarich, and Tawrich were once an Aeon from pre-Sin times.]]
They do have the look of an Aeon (being an exceptionally large, Fiend-like entities of Spira), and they use the Aeon battle music. They were once a trio of sisters, like the Magus Sisters, or a mother and her twin daughters, who became one Aeon rather than three separate Aeons from a single fayth. However, their temple was lost long, long ago in the sands of Bikanel, and as a result, they were lost. When Shuyin was overtaking the Fayth, that also meant he got to Angra Mainyu. This is why their official art is so colourful like the Aeons were, but their actual appearance is darker and more muted and grey, like the Aeons that Shuyin corrupted. Aeons seemed to exist pre-Sin, seeing as Yunalesca and Yu Yevon were accomplished Summoners and were able to create Aeons with no trouble.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Tidus never came back.]]
Not the real Tidus anyway. In the sequel novel, as I understand it, Tidus is suicidally overconfident and doesn't act much like Tidus at all. Also Sin's back because reasons. At first, I took this as Square screwing there fans, but it's possible this means it was just an incomplete Tidus that came back, and the real Tidus ended up essentially becoming Yuna's Final Aeon, and due to how Yevon set things up, became the new Sin.

Added DiffLines:

[[WMG: Shuyin is a Pianist, and Resemblance to Tidus is Coincidental]]

Part 1: Shuyin is a pianist, not a blitzballer. We know he can play the piano because of how well he plays Vegnagun, and it also explains how he met Lenne. There's no evidence whatsoever for him playing Blitzball, apart from the fact that he resembles someone who did.

As for his resemblance to Tidus...it seems plausible that the Fayth only had a limited set of bodies to work with. Fayth!Zanarkard clearly has a history, based on the fact that people have children, and those children grow up (exhibit A, Tidus). How many millions of times must they have merged together the same few faces, bodies, and personalities? There's probably a million Shuyin lookalikes running around in Fayth!Zanarkand (which explains why Tidus says nothing about the lookalike background characters in Spira).
