[[WMG: The Zodiarch Council are from a ''third'' world.]]
* At the end of the game, [[spoiler:the Zodiarch Council is revealed to be DeadAllAlong, and the council that we've seen (well, 11 out of 12) are just hardlight illusions made by The White Witch to stave off her isolation]]. Yet somehow they manage to come back to life as hideous monstrosities that seek to kill Oliver, The White Witch, and take over Ni No Kuni. The White Witch theorizes that her magic has spun out of control and created them against her will, but what if they were always something more? [[spoiler:There's more than two worlds, and harvesting the resources of this lush, magic-saturated, war-free world would be more than enough reason to open up an expensive portal between two entirely alien worlds and masquerade as an insane demon queen's illusion puppets, harvesting resources while hidden away by her madness]]. Not to mention, the Miasma cataclysm would be a good catalyst for a portal.


* Marcassin is [[InexplicablyIdenticalIndividuals already identical]] to Howl and there are [[{{Expy}} many similarities between the two]], like how both are powerful mages and seem very vain and [[{{Wangst}} Wangsty]] at first glance. Well if you combine the Ghibli film's character design for Howl and remember that the book mentions that [[spoiler: Howl originally came from our world]] and if we assume that the town Oliver comes from is supposed to be our world the only problem would be the time period differences.

[[WMG: The whole thing was staged for Oliver's "benefit".[[note]]Or lack thereof, hence the quotes.[[/note]]]]
* Shizaku/Drippy is some omnipotent being who set the whole thing up in order to teach Oliver a(n [[FamilyUnfriendlyAesop unfair]]) moral lesson: [[spoiler: that his mother is gone, and needs to accept it]]. However, as many people can tell you, [[spoiler: "gone/dead" and "accept"]] are subjective terms. In fact:

The Kingdom of Halcyon did eventually find her; and killed her. Seeing her as his sole light; he learned the forbidden spell and resolved to cast it, no matter the cost. As revealed by the story "The Bear-Man and the Princess's Tears" in the Wizard's Companion; the EquivalentExchange is [[spoiler: forgetting that the resurrected person exists; so Lucien erased his MoralityChain from his mind. This made his despair even greater as he can't remember anything good coming from his disobeying Halcyon; making his becoming Shadar. Naturally, when he died, the memory erase no longer applied.]]
