Go To

The Anime

Fridge Horror
  • The Phoenix's soul split into 5 Mystery Disks. That's all well and good... until you look at the disks and realize they were Lost Disks. Meaning the main characters started out dead until the Phoenix inhabited them.
  • Who figures out that the five Searcher Monsters might be the soul of the Phoenix? Mocchi. The youngest. And at first he doesn't even realise that it would mean giving up his own life.

The Games

Fridge Brilliance
  • In order to get a Beaklon, the worm needs to be C Rank or less. Other than the Cup Jelly, this is a requirement that seems to be out of place. but no more if you realize that Beaklon is Rank C on its card.

Fridge Horror

  • In 3, Ragnaroks/Ragnarox is just a normal, if powerful, Dragon who you face as the last boss. This game is a prequel to the rest of the series, and in 2 its data card says "They say the ancient culture might have been destroyed by it." In 1, Fleria and other Tochikans are revered as gods, suggesting a loss of information about that time period, which 4's data files state explicitly. This all suggests that after its first defeat, Ragnaroks went on a rampage and destroyed the Tochikan civilization.

Fridge Logic

  • With Training/Errantry, your monster is basically working hard to get stronger all by itself without any apparent means of outside supervision or guidance. And that's not just speculation; your monster can get injured or lost while they're out training, and if it happens then you've just wasted a lot of money and time. There's no assumption of liability whatsoever on part of the agency running the service. What exactly are you paying those assholes for?
