WMG / Digimon Story: Cyber Sleuth

Go To

All this time, you're not really playing as the gender you've picked.
You either play as a boy or a G.I.R.L.
  • Jossed as you can see your "real" character model several times in addition to you digital one and it also changes to match your choice. Even the dialog not changing much between the two doesn't fit this as everyone would see and think of you as a girl regardless, so it's just a typo.
  • Hacker's Memory clarifies that everyone's supposed to make their avatar match their real appearance.
    • The prologue of Cyber Sleuth clarifies this as well; a man at the EDEN entrance laments that his avatar is locked to his real-life appearance, and explains it is as a legal measure to prevent fraud and identity crimes. Insofar as gender identity itself, it is actually revealed EDEN does let you choose whether you identify as a boy or a girl independent of your appearance; one of the cases Mirei gives is for sibling hacker trio, the leader of which is non-binary and has a vendetta against EDEN because they discovered when building their account that the only two choices presented were "boy" or "girl" with no option to be "both/neither".

Arata is a Time Lord.
He runs off into danger for no apparent reason, he hacks things, and he calls himself Blue Box. The evidence seems clear.

Postgame, Eden still exists, but was far less popular without the digimon-based hackers drawing people's attention.
  • That or it's Far Less Advanced that it was during the game.
If there is a third game, then Etemon will get a new Digivolution.
He got the Digivolution MetalEtemon in the first game, KingEtemon in the second game, in the third game he will get the Ultimate level Digivolution Etemon Chaos, which can Digivolve into MetalEtemon.

True Mastermind Edition.
If there's a third game in Cyber Sleuth, it will focus on The Man Behind The Eaters who's a Digimon setting up the chaos infecting EDEN and even Kamishiro Enterprises.
  • My guess is Eater-Bagramon, a Bagramon fused with Eaters. His human host is the creator of Eaters, with intent of wiping the hackers' competition out.

The lack of international response to what amounts to an inter-dimensional war.
You would think that with a gate to another dimension opening over one of the largest cities in the world, America would be all over swooping in to save the day regardless of Japanese wishes, but there's actually a possible explanation: It is very subtle, but one mission ends with an incident that detective Mayatoshi fears could damage relations between Japan and another country that remained unnamed, but was heavily implied to be America itself. He then laments that the country in question had just been convinced to move "their bases" out of Japan, and that this incident so close on the heels of that could complicate things. As it is, the United States still maintains air bases on the Japanese mainland, so this means things presumably played out a little differently. With this in mind, it is plausible to believe that with the removal of the bases and the possible international incident, both America and Japan are playing the politics very carefully until things cool off.

How well does it match the trope?
