- This was supposed to be the fifth episode of a six-game series, and Xenogears Perfect Works covers what would have happened in the first four episodes...but where the heck would the developers gone with episode six? I mean, by the end of Xenogears, Deus and its servants are all defeated, Fei and Elly have regained the memories of all their past lives, the Wave Existence is freed...simply put, there are no plot threads left to resolve in a sequel.
- The Perfect Works says something about how they hinted at the first four episodes in this game, with the implication that they knew I-IV were going to be cancelled. Maybe the original ending was going to be a cliffhanger to segue to episode six, until they squished it into this game, knowing that the others were cancelled?
- What was the point of the villains crucifying the heroes, and by crucifying them, it's putting their mechs on huge crosses. Presumably the heroes are just sitting in their cockpits comfortably while their mechs are nailed to crosses.
- If Citan knew what was in the Soylent food, why didn't he tell Fei and Elly before they ate it? Some kind of sick lesson to be learned?
- They were really hungry and he probably didn't want to spoil their appetite. I'm not sure which is worse though...
- Like Citan said, they've already eaten the stuff before via medicine and food supplied to the world via the Ethos. This goes double for Elly, who being from Solaris, has probably went her whole life eating nothing but recycled food.
- What the heck does "Small Two of Pieces" (the song title itself, not the lyrics) mean?
- It's a reference to a part of the game (in Shevat, I think) that humanity is compared to the pieces of a broken mirror. The song's title is an artifact of the original lyrics, which were much more engrish-y before Joanne Hogg rewrote them.
- Here's one that always bothered me. The dramatic reveal that Fei is Id, is begun when Weltall activates on it's own, turns into Id mode, and breaks out of the Yggdrasil, triggering an alarm on the bridge which alerts Siguard. Well and good, except that earlier on, when Id awoke to confront the team at the Zeboim ruins, it not only did this, but also returned to Yggdrasil afterwards and settled back in in the hanger (Weltall is shown with steam coming from it's vents when the party find Fei here) without anyone on the ship noticing. Huh? What did Id repair the hole before switching Fei back in? Did nobody not notice a gear leave and then return on it's own. Did nobody notice a gear in the hangar suddenly go missing for at least 20 minutes? Or the gaping hole in the ship? Or did Id somehow politely ask someone to open the hangar and nobody wondered who this strange guy was? This just...doesn't make sense.
