  • I know this would obviously make the game 99% shorter, but why doesn't the queen just kill the horned boys instead of locking them up in jar thingies? Sure she didn't think one would have the insight to give enough force to tilt the jar thingy on its side, but still...
    • Don't forget that Ico didn't exactly tilt his jar, the vibrations from the floor moving jostled it along with the fact that the ground it was on was already crumbling away.
    • She didn't just kill them because that probably means she couldn't use them as her shadowy soldiers. Or she needed them specially processed in those tombs for some reason. She probably wasn't just asking for horned kids just For the Evulz.
      • The book's explanation is that they were placed in the sarcophagi by the neighbouring Holy Zagrenda-Sol Empire so that they would protect Yorda and force her to continue freezing the castle in time, so the Queen would never leave the castle again. The Queen had nothing to do with it.
  • One thing I am curious is about is how did Ico wind up on that hanging cage after being dropped from the bridge? Unless he somehow had a forward momentum as he fell (and the scene gives no such indication) it's almost like an act of god that he miraculously didn't hit the water below and die. Of course it's also baffling to think he may have fallen on the cage, and yet didn't break every bone in his body.
    • I always thought the queen stuck him in there For the Evulz.
    • Or, if certain Wild Mass Guessing's are taken into considering, she did it for another reason.
      • You guys are thinking of the wrong scene. The OP isn't talking about her sticking him in the cage at the start, the OP is talking about when he falls on top of the cage after the bridge scene, when Yorda's captured.
      • The same reason that Ico doesn't keel over from starvation/fatigue during middle third of the game - the curse of Dormin protects him from dying somehow.
