Avoid using First-Person Writing please.
- Jossed by the bios. Though it is worth noting that Gordon Smith (yes, we now know his first name) does appear in "Complex". (He's in the cafeteria sleeping.)
- Although he isn't a SHIFTer, alternate timelines are confirmed in Completing the Mission.
- Confirmed, kind of. One of the choices in 'Mission' is between three devices, ALL of which have been reviewed by Gadget Gabe. It's up to you to pick the right one.
- A more traditional Gadget Gabe item is featured in the GSPI/IRO route: Henry has a choice between Portrait Portal, Bug Juice, and a Switcher. The correct option is the Switcher.
- Why else would Ellie be in The Wall? Because she was a part of a notorious mercenary group.
- Alternatively, she could have the HAVEN trooper costume as one of her gadget options for the final game.@Love 777
- Moneybag is the only successful ending of Bank.
- Badass is the only ending in Prison where Henry steals a police car. This car later appears in the beginning of Airship, making it canon that Henry stole it for all paths in the game.
- Henrys scooter is destroyed in the Aggressive ending of Diamond, yet reappears at the beginning of Airship - thus Aggressive is non-canon. From there its a toss-up between Undetected and Epic, but is there really any chance that Henry would willingly leave the Diamond behind like he does in the Epic ending?
- The Government endings in Airship are extremely unlikely to lead to Henrys imprisonment in the Complex, as his criminal record was cleared. The Toppat ending would presumably lead to the now-non-canon Betrayed ending in Complex. The Lightning-Quick Larcenist ending gets Henry killed. That leaves the Pure-Blooded Thief as the most-canon ending.
- Convict Allies is just the best ending of Complex, and Ellie was well-liked enough that Puffballs included her as an ally in Completing the Mission. Honestly theres not much to go on here, but it just feels like the correct ending if ever there was one.
- It feels like Epic is canon over Undetected because Undetected makes reference to the Lame Ending of "Prison" and would likely keep the government from knowing Henry stole the titular diamond from "Diamond"
- Don't treat The Betrayed Ending as automatically non-canon, you can choose it in Completing the Mission, as a screenshot reveals.
- 'Completing the Mission' is out, and it has revealed that ALL of the endings are canon... kind of. 'Mission' has an entirely different plot depending on which combination of endings from 'Airship' and 'Complex' you choose, though some are incompatible with others (for instance, the Rapidly Promoted Executive rank in 'Airship' (Henry took over the Toppat clan) cannot be used with the Government Rescue Operative rank in 'Complex' (Charles rescues you from the Wall).
- Jossed entirely; Puffballs himself confirmed on Twitter that all endings are canon, stating that having a canon path defeats the purpose of being able to choose your own path. (Which makes sense; why give people a choice only to later say that some choices are wrong?) If you want proof in the game, an Omega Ending shows that all endings are part of a collective multiverse.
Surprisingly, "The Betrayed" can also be chosen as an ending to continue from, even though Word of God stated Henry dies in that ending.
So, either the creators changed their mind, or choosing this ending as a starting point will lead to an immediate fail, with the fail screen claiming that Henry is dead.
- Maybe choosing The Betrayed ends up revealing Henry had a child before his death, and were playing as Stickmin jr, finishing the job his father started.
- Or maybe we will play as a friend of Henry we never saw before who wants to avenge him, or a member of the Toppat clan who preferred Henry as a leader and thus become a traitor to the clan.
- Jossed. Choosing "The Betrayed" ending leads to the "Revenged" ending of Mission, in which Henry has been revived as a Cyborg and gets his revenge on the Toppat Clan.
- A screenshot heavily implies this is true, as The Betrayed Ending can't be chosen after the Goverment Supported Private Investigator Ending was chosen.
- Confirmed. "International Rescue Operative" can only be paired with "Government Supported Private Investigator" or "Relentless Bounty Hunter". And "The Betrayed" can only be paired with "Rapidly Promoted Executive".
- If this is confirmed, then it might be a funny case of Sibling Yin-Yang, with Jacob being a law-abiding guard and Ellie being a master criminal.
- Jossed. During the first part of the Developer Commentary stream, Puff confirmed that Jacob and Ellie are not related.
- Jossed (kind of). the trailer for Fleeing the Complex reveals that Henry is only 110 pounds. Then again, this might be poking fun at the fact that he's a stick figure, since he's apparently six feet tall. Heck, this might actually be a lot for stick figure standards!
- He probably isn't, as the "consistently with a stick body" part is incorrect. Kev Portly and Mayor Fredrickson are noticeably fatter than other characters.
- There might also be possibility for branches of non-CA pathes from Ellie's perspective, and maybe some Ct M pathes, but it's unlikely.
- Jossed. The trailer for Complex confirms Grigori proposed imprisoning Henry to Dmitri.
- For starters, they've been around for a while.
- Second, they cared about the Toppat Clan.
- Reginald wants the Toppats to have a good leader who's big on loyalty and knows how to be a leader: Reginald sees himself as such, explaining why he betrayed Henry in TB.
- The Right Hand Man is the most loyal Toppat that we know of, allowing to give up his hatred of Henry if Reg trusts him.
With the two being good and caring leaders, Burt feels safe when they are in charge. Sven, however?
- He became the leader a few months ago at best, as the entire series happened in one year. He's new and clearly doesn't know much.
- He doesn't even want to be the Toppat Leader.
- He doesn't hestitate to leave some Toppats behind if he has to.
Burt doesn't feel as safe as before when the Toppat Leader is an unwilling new guy who doesn't hestitate to leave him behind. He panicked in the SALS option above because he feared what Sven could do.
Galeforce purposefully blamed it on the Toppat Clan and got rid of anything connecting Henry to the theft so there will be more dirt on the Toppats.
Henry seemingly remember all the times the Teleporter didn't work, becoming increasingly more afraid of using it, until he choose to destroy it in Mission. These include the time he got stuck in wall in Bank, got shot in the fire range in Prison, got stuck in an empty dimension in Airship and got teleported into Starcraft in Complex.
Charles, in the Government/Rescue route when the player choose to use the IR Sniper, seem to remember when in Complex he accidentally shot Henry with a sniper, saying that "there is zero chance I will hit you with that". But he never took the shot back in Complex. If you choose charles in Government/Dead route, charles said Ive always wanted to that After he crash his ship. Meaning he knows he would crash his helicopter/ship so many times.
- Charles saying "Ive always wanted to that" doesn't mean he know he would crash his helicopter multiple times, every time he crashed it is technically the first time because they all lead to a fail except for the one in Mission. It just means that he was waiting for the opportunity to do it at least once in his life, but it's not a proof of him remembering the fails at all.
Ellie in Complex instinctively shoot Henry with the Taser, when choose in combination with the Sniper Rifle. She seemingly already knows about Henry's bad aim and the accident that happens if combined Sniper Rifle and Crossbow, where Henry erroneously shoot Ellie, which never happened.
