Xenogears Manga? Hah!
like to thank you for making this site for one of the best games
in the world, your site rocks keep up the good work! Well this
is my question. In your mailbag I saw this person write: At the
end of the game and the credits it said THE END Xenogears Episode
V (and of course Nutz gave an answer) but she said something
about Xenogears 2. Is SquareSoft really thinking about making
another? Also is there any chance for this game to become a Anime
in the near future made by Manga or Pioneer?
Hyuga: Thanks for the compliments, we try
(yey Nutz!). Let's start with the anime/manga topic. Chances
are so-so. I continue with my argument that Zohar being destroyed
disengages most machines, including Gears, but I get the counter
argument that it could be based on Deus' home planet. So, yes
a comic is possible, but in my mind is not likely. Square keeps
a closed fist on other side publications other than the game
itself. Xenogears 2? Check the news. 8D
Nutz: There are a lot of loose ends left with Xenogears, that
we see the possibility of a a sequel, or maybe prequel, or even
a manga/anime. However, Square has remained silent on the matter,
and all we have are little bits and rumors about possible plans.
We are yet, unsure of anything, so don't get your hopes up so
First, I just want to tell you that this is the BEST Xenogears
site out there! I have two questions. If you could help me I
would greatly appreciate it. The first question, how do you use
the deathblows that you equip on your gear (such as the one you
get from the woman you defeat in the card game on the Thames)?
They are suppose to permit you to do level 1,2, or 3 attacks
depending on which one you get. But when I equip it before a
battle, during the battle I get no kind of options that would
permit me to use it. The second question, how do I know when,
and on who, to use an elemental attack on? Thank you very much
for your response.
Hyuga: Argh. Again with the
DeathBlower items! Quick fact: DeathBlower items are the most
common item who's use is a mystery to many people. Back to the
answer, to operate one of these funky items, build up. These
things need real power to work, baby. Normal Gear Deathblows
need the first 6 character ones to operate. 2 per level. The
next 3 are needed for the item in question. So, DeathBlower1
needs character Deathblow #7 (X-X) to work. Think in those terms.
Those attacks cost as much as a normal Gear attack, and deal
a lot of damage.
As for elemental attacks, try different things. Usually, if an
enemy is attacking in one specific element, it's great to use
it's opposite. Opposites are Fire-Water and Earth-Wind. So, use
an earth element deathblow on that wind enemy.
how's it going! I must say that this site is by far, the best
Xenogears site in existence. I have a few questions but I will
try to make them brief. I beat the game but I have a few areas
of the story that still seem a little blurry.
1. First question concerns Deus and the Zohar Modifier. I know
that Deus was an interplanetary weapon created by some civilization
and that Deus went out of control. This question is kind of segmented.
Was the Zohar Modifier created before Deus and was then used
by Deus as an infinite source of power? Or was the Zohar Modifier
a part of Deus from the beginning?
2. Next, when everything crashed to earth, was Deus the one who
used the Zohar modifier to create humans or did the Zohar just
act on its own?
3. Was Deus the one to capture the Existence in the modifier,
explaining the infinite amount of energy? I know this is long,
4. One more question for now. Did Abel observe Zohar on the ship
or after the crash? If on the ship, does that explain why he
didn't die and if not, why was he the chosen one?
5. Was it also proven that Abel was the first of the Fei bloodline
or just a guess? And if so, then because Abel observed Zohar,
he was given the power to remember past lives along with the
power to kill Deus? Sorry for so many questions and random thoughts
but any help would be greatly appreciated. You guys rule!!!!!!!
Hyuga: Yes, we do rule! Heh.
Nice set of questions, so let's get cracking.
The Abel-Zohar-Mother Phenomenon
1. From what
I remember, Zohar was created as Deus' core, it's brain, or central
neural system to be exact. Thus it was made as part of the whole
2. The Eldridge only carried Zohar, since Deus was carried off
as separate parts when Planet Alpha (my name for the home planet
where humans originated from - not official.. just a nickname)
realized what they had created. Zohar is Deus' thinking cap,
so Zohar's action is Deus' action. Think of Zohar as Deus' brain,
and like us, we can manipulate our brain, and in the same sense,
it can manipulate us. Deus, using his brain, Zohar to invade
the Eldridge's computer systems, took over the ship and forced
it to land. However, Mr. Captain blew it up. Zohar then created
the -Mother-, who would re-create the species known as humans
to become the fleshy part of Deus (good description, Nutz).
3. (Nutz speaking) The Wave existence was only trapped inside
Zohar the moment Abel observed it. Abel's contact with Zohar
triggered a dimensional rift where the Wave Existence was pulled
from its higher dimension down the path of Sefiroth (see the
trivia page for explanation on what Sefiroth means), then trapped
into the modifier. This transmigration gave Deus enough power
to gain control of the ship by first utilizing the bio computer
Kadmony. That very monet too, the -Mother- was created, and along
with it, the Wave Existence's Will which came from Abel. From
that moment on, The Wave Existence, Zohar, Abel and the -Mother-
were one. (Nutz shuts up)
4. We all assume that Abel found Zohar on the Eldridge, which
allowed him to survive. Contact with Zohar and the existence
gives a certain amount of invincibility and immortality, as how
Grahf survived from his imperfect contact (him being imperfect,
only his will remained immortal, possessing other people). When
the -Mother- created Elly, the opposite version of Miang, who
happened to be very similar to the captain's daughter, Abel falls
in love with her. Elly, harboring the Existence's Will of a Mother,
sees Abel and remembered him, then sought ought to take good
care of him until she eventually fell in love too.
5. We just assume that this was Abel. But, think about it, doesn't
Abel just throw the whole Episode V theory of the different Episodes
being Fei timelines? Yup. Luckily, The Contact did that research,
which can be found in Nutz's last Mailbag in the MAILBAG ARCHIVES. (Nutz talks again)
It is quite logical that it was Abel. Fei clearly said in the
game that "he" was the only one who survived the Eldridge
crash (from the memory he inherited from his forefathers), and
knowing from history, Fei's first ever ancestor was Abel. (Nutz
Number 4, we have a missing child in Bledavik.
is by far, the best Xenogears site in the world. I don't think
anything can beat it. Anyway, my question. To get the Hide-and-go-Seek
badge, you have to find that kid 5 times. I found him twice,
and your site says that the third time he is at the Ethos HQ.
I looked all over that place, but couldn't find him. Can you
be specific on where he is? It will help a lot.
we have that fixed? It's not right. Close, but not right. The
Ethos HQ is a different area, and the kid isn't there. He is,
however, in the Ethos Shop area. Tucked away in a little corner.
You'll find him by moving the camera around.
