Because it's not that big of a leap to joke about.
- The real question is "can we make a sexual innuendo about that?"
- Plenty. 'Can you fit your key in the door' 'It really is bigger on the inside'note and the obvious 'let's go for a ride'.
- By honing her ability to interact with the morphogenic field, she eventually discards her physical body, leading her to Ascend to a Higher Plane of Existence and becoming a 4-dimensional being who would later be named Blick Winkel.
- Word of God is that Seven got his scars while fighting an evil secret organization. It also confirms that Zero really is part of a large organization as Ace guessed. Why wouldn't they be one and the same?
- More specifically, when Aoi and Akane became rich with Cradle Stock under assumed names, Seven thought that was suspicious and investigated their connection to Hongou, having a few violent encounters with minions. What he found was the complete opposite of his expectations, to say the least. Luckily for him, they needed him alive for their time-gambit to work (and probably pulled a We Can Rule Together while they were at it.)
- Jossed in the sequel. The large organization was actually an organization named Free the Soul of Y.
- Must... resist... funyarinpa... urges...
- So wait, are you saying that Gordain could bring the dead back to life?
- My god, you're right! Given that The CEO of Cradle Pharmaceutical uses it on himself, and Zero gained her power via Cradle Stock...
- This isn't really a WMG since it's all but blatantly stated in-game that the gas used to kidnap the characters was in fact Soporil.
Junpei: The Captain's... You mean Zero?!
Ace: Of course. It's a worthwhile possibility in any case...
- Jossed by Zero Time Dilemma as we learn their parents' fate.
- Her capture by Hongou was necessary to unlock her kool powerz, and, by extension, to save the world and continue the chain of esper stewards. (Unknown Esper awakens June, who awakens Phi, ensuring the world's continued safety from things like Radical-6.) June's retrieval of the trinket seems like too random a variable to be left up to chance.
- Except that Snake was already eighteen years old when Death Note was published, and Clover was 12 when Yotsuba was published. At least, assuming the game takes place around the time it was released, which the pop culture references strongly imply. (Junpei quoting The Dark Knight means the game couldn't have taken place any earlier than 2008.)
- The sequel took place around 2029, 2 years after 999, so their birthdates aren't a problem.
Why else would he build a death trap for a ship, kidnap 18 children, and set up the Nonary Game to test the Morphogenetic Field, if he couldn't even access it?
Ace: I'm almost certain that's Richard Epcar.
Snake: I have no clue.
Santa: Confirmed as Sean Chiplock in this tweet.
Clover: Wendee Lee's back, baby!
Junpei: As is Evan Smith!
June/Akane: And Rena Strober!
Seven: Also no clue.
Lotus: Uh... Marcella Lentz-Pope?
9th Man: Also no clue.
- Snake is voiced by Taliesin Jaffe
Santa: Having fun?
Zero: [gasses him again, accidentally overdosing him and wiping his memories] Fatty!
- Ace's note from Zero states that he would be allowed out of the Nonary Game if he confessed his crimes in the Captain's Quarters. Specifically, he was told there would be a camera there, streaming a live-feed.
- There is a a camera in the final room of the Captain's Quarters, and examining it reveals it's probably streaming a live feed to somewhere.
- However, if this was meant to capture Ace's (and Musashidou's) confession, there's a glaring problem: The camera is pointed towards the exit door. In order to capture anything usable of the confession, it would most likely be pointed at the middle of the room instead. (Which would be far more convincing evidence than disembodied voices).
- However, the next morsel of information comes when you realize that the only time Junpei (and thus, the player) gets to see the Captain's Quarters is when exploring it with Ace and Clover (1+4+5 = 10 -> 1+0 = 1). This is also, regardless of path, when Ace uses advance knowledge of the game to sneak off and kill Cap.
- In other words, the only time we see the camera in question is after Ace has been on the scene. Given that he knew his confession would be recorded, he must have assumed there'd be a camera, and thus know about it.
- Since he kills Cap (and remember, the camera would probably have been pointing at the center of the room in its default state), it's heavily implied he turned the camera around to avoid capturing a murder on a camera, not to mention one that was streaming its contents.
- While technically, the camera might not have been intended to stream any footage for a confession at all (Zero was planning on Ace ignoring the confession anyway, and the footage might just have been wirelessly transmitting to one of the screens in the room itself), the key fact is that Ace would have thought it was sending information to some sort of hard-drive or live-stream.
Clover is named Yotsuba, and Snake is Light (pronounced Raito). This one really explains itself, and while it could just be a coincidence, it's funny that they're both named after manga main characters.
When the nine children are trapped in the incinerator, they send five of them ahead through the 9 Door when they realized Seven is coming to save them. Based on the C Gs, the four who stayed behind were Light/Snake, Aoi/Santa, Akane/June, and Nona/Lotus' Daughter.
Since Akane must be #5, and three of the four show up Nine Years Later (with Nona instead having her mother be there), we can make an assumption that they might have the same numbers. Intentionally or not, this happens to work out, giving #2 to Light, #3 to Aoi, and #8 to Nona.
