    Doesn't Japan use circles and check marks?

    My oppinion is that Jeanne was used/empowered by the counter force to stop Britain from destroying the world and then thrown away like a dirty rag when they were done with her (exactly how the Knk scene describes the counter force does to people it uses to stop them from being the next problem)

    But people dont wanna go into Lol,Jeannes God is the counter force so they dont wanna consider it.

    It's actually Jeanne's Saint Catherine, but point taken.

    EDIT: It was Michael, Catherine, and the Margaret.

    Things would have been quite different if the Lancastrians had managed to keep the French crown. Admittedly, their grip on power was essentially maintained by the Burgundians, but still.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Also, the Burgundians are who actually captured Jeanne.

    And arguably, karma came to them when 40 years later, the last Duke got brained by a halberd and his lands got split.

    Battle doesn't need a purpose; the battle is its own purpose. You don't ask why a plague spreads or a field burns. Don't ask why I fight.

    the ones i know to be not retcon but more like expansion:

    >God Hand's defensive ability going from giving Herc complete conceptual immunity to being killed by the same method more than once to simply giving him a strong resistance to attacks made in that method.
    Its a difference in japanese words being used. "Attacks being inneffective" is not the same as "attacks being conceptually nullified". Nasu actually never used conceptually nullified when describing Herc's resist.

    >Gods/Divine Spirits (the Mesopotamian ones in particular) as entities born out of human belief from the planet being changed to gods/Divine Spirits (the Mesopotamian ones in particular) as entities derived from ancient aliens (implied to be TYPEs). This was also bundled up with stuff like the Picts being aliens.
    Both still gods. THere are gods born from human belief, there are aliens being worshipped as gods and then become gods. Its not a mutually exclusive thing.

    >The Hassans going from the only Heroic Spirits in existence who even qualify for the Assassin classto the idea that they were the only Assassins a misconception based on the fact that every summoning of the class involved the word "assassin" being used as a catalyst.
    Well, thats not exactly true. It has always been that way since CM3.
    Quote Originally Posted by CM3

    >Tiamat being some super special Beast in FGO when she was just a normal Divine Spirit in CCC Foxtail and Apocrypha
    Being A only mentioned in 1 entry does not preclude being A is more special than what is revealed.

    >Servants keeping their memories from previous summonings in FGO (you can't just say "the summoning system is different", Chaldea would have to be summoning the HS directly rather than making a Servant copy were they to do that).
    Yes you can say that. Fuyuki was Windows XP while Chaldea is Windows 10. Windows 10 has this nifty function where my PC remembers the update and can roll back to previous system update, while Windows XP has to uhhh IIRC manual download update.
    Ok maybe bad analogy but anyway Fuyuki is only a summoning system. Chaldea is both a summoning system and a bank data. Fuyuki summoning is always from zero because there's no save data. Chaldea has save data, so when Chaldea summons something the summoned being conforms to the save data.

    >Fate and Tsukihime being in the same -- or at least similar -- timeline due to EMIYA having received his red coat from Ciel
    Well, first of all, tHis is less established canon and more Nasu being "it'd be interesting if thats what happens."
    Second of all, for all you know there are like, more than one clergy member likes curry other than Ciel.
    When he began working as a freelance magus in his twenties, he received it from a certain curry-loving member of the clergy... now that would make a nice story, it would.
    >Primate Murder being turned into a fucking mascot character with a verbal tic.
    By definition, this is not a retcon. Fou can and still will be prime killer doggo on steroid if let loose on bad environment.

    >Originally servant shaving rpg like parameters and rankings was just because that was the easiest way for shiro to visualize them and other masters viewed servant strengths in different ways but it seems like everyone sees it just like yamato carrot head now.
    Tina Chelc sees it as river flows.

    - - - Updated - - -

    Im finding it slightly funny that the retcon claim does not include things where Nasu actually says "Actually that's a lie" moments.

    Wow, that reddit post sure is something.

    I just sighed when the word "Sixth Magic" came up when Nasu said there were only 5 Magics.

    We don't even know what are the official names of True Magic 1 and 4.

    The poster hasn't even completed the 27 Dead Apostle Ancestor list to make theories like that.

    Don't get me started on Beasts too, as I can bet that the poster hasn't even seen all Beasts yet.
    Not dealing with it...

    Why even try?
