Headscratchers / Klonoa: Door to Phantomile

Go To

  • If Huepow brought Klonoa into his reality, why can't he do it again?
    • He can't because Klonoa was only brought there to restore the balance of dreams, plus The Song of Rebirth would erase Klonoa from that world again. He doesn't belong there.
      • Just because Huepow brought him into that world for a specific reason doesn't mean he can't do it again for an unrelated reason. As for the Song of Rebirth, that's an easy problem to solve: just do it again after every time she sings it.
  • If Huepow created all of Klonoa's memories, doesn't that means that Klonoa's friendship was fake all along? He literally made Klonoa believe they were great friends, after all.
    • That's the point. Huepow filled Klonoa's mind with memories, but ended up Becoming the Mask while spending time with him. Why else would he have been torn up while confessing to Klonoa?
  • I'm personally more concerned with Klonoa's OTHER supposed relationships. Did he not actually have a close relationship with Grandpa? Was Grandpa in on it? Did Grandpa even exist? What about the fact that all the people from that same area looked to be the same species as Klonoa? Was that all made up, or do the same species just happen to live there too? Really the only two answers are either that everyone Klonoa thought he knew were in on some grand conspiracy, or they didn't even exist.
    • Well, Grandpa died as a result of the plot, so he had to have been pretty dedicated to whatever cause he would have belonged to. Either that, or they just weren't expecting Joka to go so far as to kill someone. It does seem a little odd, though, especially considering that Huepow still wanted Klonoa to finish his duty, even though he knew exactly how big of a toll that it was taking on the guy. Perhaps, if everyone in Phantomile was in on some sort of plan, no one really realized how nice of a person Klonoa actually was, and just how much his life sucked in retrospect, until the very end, after everything had been said and done and they had all gotten to know him. But in spite of all that, they still had to let Klonoa be taken out of Phantomile for it to be saved. So, though the "plan" would have worked and everyone would have wanted Klonoa back in Phantomile, doing such a thing would ruin everything they worked for... or maybe you're right, and everything was just a dream, or something.
  • I know that this sounds petty compared to the other Headscratchers here, but what is that curly thing on Joka's back? It can't be a tail, because he already has one, just below the curly thing, and I don't think it's a second tail, because it never moves. Could it be hair? He is a Walking Head, after all.
  • Another question about Joka: Does he have a Cheshire Cat Grin with red teeth, or a Jagged Mouth with red facepaint over it?
  • If Phantomile is not Klonoa's home, why do all the residents of the wind village resemble his species? Did there just so happen to be another population of Klonoa's species in that world when it needed Klonoa? Is Huepow or someone else casting some sort of illusion that causes Klonoa to see the residents of the wind village as his own species so he doesn't ask questions?
    • His species isn't endemic to Phantomile. What about the King of Sorrow from Lunatea's Veil?
  • How did Joka know where Grandpa's house was? Sure, he knew (or at least, he could have surmised) that Klonoa lived in the Wind Village, but how did he know where in the Wind Village it was?
    • Phantomilian White Pages?
    • Or maybe he pulled a Batman Gambit and secretly tailed Klonoa through the Wind Kingdom's ruins.
  • How exactly does Klonoa fire his ring? Where's the "trigger"?
