New way to look at "Canon"

#1unknownuberPosted 7/28/2014 10:42:08 PM
In terms of story, the only children that are guarenteed to be canonically born are Lucina and Gerome because it's explained that Gerome gave Lucina the mask to disguise herself. So really any other child besides those 2 could be non-canon...

"Canon" has two meanings on this board.

1. What the developers say.

2. What I like best.

There can be no third.

This. Even your Gerome argument can be invalidated, since that conversation only happens if Gerome exists, which could then mean Lucina simply found the mask elsewhere. It's all easy to twist, until the developers give the final say. And even then, they could still change it if they really wanted to.

It's more believable then Lucina just finding a mask off the ground lol...

More believable, sure, but it's still valid, meaning pretty much nothing can be considered safely canon. We should really stop having these topics...
