- And the famous wind ring is his TARDIS.
- Each of the kingdoms represents a part of Klonoa's psyche, and the fact that people from the kingdoms don't mingle are symbolic of Klonoa blocking out certain emotions. Lolo is possibly symbolic of his hope or desire to do his best. But most of all, the King Of Sorrow looks remarkably like Huepow (note the ring of rope around his neck and the teal colours); this could represent the lost friendship that he and Huepow had, and how he saw himself in Huepow as one would with a close friend. The icing on the cake is that The Fifth Kingdom is called Hyuponia and throughout the second to penultimate level, hints of the Windmill Song play amongst the twisted music.
- There are five kingdoms based on emotions: Tranquility, Joy, Discord, Indecision, and Sorrow. There also happens to be five stages of grief: Denial, Bargaining, Anger, Depression, and Acceptance. Because of imbalance, the kingdoms are displaying their respective stage of grief, and are traveled to in the same order as the stages of grief: La-Lakoosha priestesses in denial that the world has gone into chaos and just waiting for the Dream Traveler, Joliant trying to distract itself with endless entertainment in hopes to stay happy for a little while longer, Volk City devolving into senseless war and Leorina making a ring copy out of anger, Mira-Mira citizens getting depressed and asking "why bother with anything anymore?", and lastly The King of Sorrow accepting that he needs Klonoa's help to end his life. And as each bell is rung, that stage of grief is passed. So during the course of one dream, which in gameplay time is little over 4 hours, Klonoa has coped with grief that would take a normal person many years to resolve. That's pretty badass.
- Also note the symbol of the priestesses of La-Lakoosha, and the statues of the Mother Goddess Claire. The green triangle represents Klonoa's Dream Ring - a fabled artifact spoken highly of by several characters in the game - and the wings are symbolic of Klonoa's ears that he uses to fly (sure it's only for 2 seconds, but it still counts). We can also see this symbolism in the statue of the MG Claire: she has wings that mirror the symbolism of those in the priestess' emblem, and the ball of energy she has in her hands is similar to the ring. The statue of Claire The Ancient has a striking resemblance to Lephise - and the fact it hides The Fifth Kingdom is similar to how the Moon Kingdom was hidden in the first game. Klonoa literally has to overcome his sorrow and accept it, in order to continue with his life.
- Similar to the above, citing most of the same symbolism, but changing target characters; the different kingdoms in LV clearly represent conflicting parts of a healthy psyche, with the final hidden kingdom of Hyuponia being repressed sadness. Also note how Hyupo is phonetically identical to Huepow.
- The overall theme of dream traveling could also suggest that he is very literally traveling throughout the dreams of different people, like some kind of adventure platformer psychologist/therapist. The DttP is quite literally helping a child recover from the trauma of a nightmare before it does long term psychological damage, ala Nahatomb. Once Klonoa's job is done there, the closest person in need is Huepow, who is now grappling with depression.
- Yes, this does suggest that Klonoa's progression through the two main PS games is in fact something like Inception style dream-diving.
- The music tracks associated with Hyuponia contain echoing samples of music from the first game.
The kicker? Shortly after the portal ripples, Klonoa is surrounded by a bright light, and he is walking into it.
However, we do see a giant talking tree in Indecision Pass consider itself part of the Mira-Mirans after Klonoa and co defeat the Hatchling. Maybe Mira-Mirans don't go outside because they somehow take root and turn into the various alpine trees you see if they do. When you consider the legend of Narcissus and the fact that Mira-Miras stare at things and constantly relive their past in the Maze of Memories, it's not totally out there...
You'd think a guy as positive and determined as Klonoa would deal with the sorrow and trauma of not being a native Phantomilian, or maybe try to find a way back without getting thrown out by the Song of Rebirth. Heck, finding out your memories are fabricated probably wouldn't cause such a reaction as it did, as long as they became real over the course of the adventure. So why does Klonoa freak out so hard when he's getting pulled out of Phantomile?`
Simple. The Song of Rebirth is trying to send him home...which does not exist. It is destroyed. Gone. Just black interdimensional void left. Maybe during his adventure in regular Phantomile the Alt!Phantomile Ghadius succeeded in ending the world. Heck, maybe Klonoa knew his home was going to be destroyed and escaped to Phantomile willingly before getting fabricated memories overwriting his escape. Thus, it stands to reason he's not freaking out over having to leave, he's freaking out over having to go into the void, a literal unknown, instead of moving in to Phantomile for good. Even the ending could just be a genuine dream of waking up in his homeworld while being blissfully asleep in the void where his homeworld used to be.
In Lunatea's Veil, he willingly goes through the portal. This isn't because he's going home, but because he's made a decision. Maybe him staying could imbalance Lunatea and he couldn't do that to Lolo, or maybe he saw KoS's sadness and decided no one else should suffer the same, fully taking on the mantle of dream traveller and protecting the worlds from harm, and set off on his next adventure.
By the time the manga rolls around, he's found a nice home and even a way to contact previous world and bring people over, hence the existence of Lolo and Garlan in the world. Heck, Dream Champ Tournament could do that, why couldn't the manga?
As for the Moos, one befriended Klonoa and started serving as the postman of Breezegale once the new homeworld was found. In truth, the Moos aren't hostile and mostly content to just waddle around, help where they can and respawn if they should "die". The only reason touching them damages Klonoa is because they secrete a contact poison as a defence mechanism whenever out of their homeworld. Thus, Postman Moo acted as a radar for Klonoa's search for a safe homeworld. When he stopped secreting poison, they were home.
- Here's a compromise: He was supposed to spy on Klonoa, but he enjoyed being the mascot so much that he completely forgot about being a bad guy.
- Probably jossed. Grandpa, Balue, and the other Breezegale residents are Klonoa's species, and they're all basically normal people... Unless there's something going on with them that we don't know.
- Ghadius calls Klonoa a "strange dream." He seems to know more about Klonoa than we do, but although he doesn't reveal much, he does seem to imply that Klonoa is the only strange dream.
- The webcomic is called Dream Traveler of Noctis Sol. Singular form. While Klonoa's friends also travel between worlds in the comic, maybe Dream Traveler is like an official title that only Klonoa has?
- A retelling of Door to Phantomile, which would make up for the Wiimake's somewhat lackluster performance. It could be a retelling of Lunatea's Veil or Empire of Dreams too, although those seem less likely.
- A retelling/continuation of the webomic, Dream Traveller of Noctis Sol. We've gotta find out how Klonoa defeats Tenebrae Hue!
- Supported by the involvement of Henshin, Rob Pereyda, Hiroshi Ariga, and Ash Paulsen.
- Jossed. Rob confirmed on Kitsu that the movies story wont be a rehash.
- Unless he was specifically referring to "Door to Phantomile".
- Supported by the involvement of Henshin, Rob Pereyda, Hiroshi Ariga, and Ash Paulsen.
- A completely new story. Although, of course, some characters from previous games would return. Let's theorize which characters might appear if this is the case:
- We'll never know, since it was cancelled in January 2019.
- Jossed. mostly because the movie is cancelled.
- Another remake of the first game.
- A remake of Klonoa 2.
- The "Encore" is a Red Herring, and it's actually Klonoa 3.
- A bundle of either two or all three of the above.
- A simple compilation rerelease of some or all of the games.
- Seeing how the Mr. Driller encore ended up it is most likely going to be a remaster or remake
- Here's a little evidence: Though this may not have been intentional, Klonoa is like a Composite Character of the Noops and Wuts: He has the Noops' friendliness, and the Wuts' badassery.
- Continuing from this, what if all the villains in the series were created by Zordrak? What if he is the true Big Bad of the games?
