LBA Plot Holes

At least once a week, we see a post like "plothole #10295340890143-156a".
So, how about a thread at which we suggest possible theories for all plot holes?

I suggest this thread to go like that:
Someone posts a plot hole
Everybody suggests theories for the plot hole until there's an agreement
Someone posts another plot hole.

OK, I'll start:
Who, the hell, is the 3rd elf?

ooh ooh!! I've got one..

A long time ago, i have noticed that in lba1,
the number 4 is a typological number.
Which means this number repeats itself many times, and has a special meaning.

Think about it, 4 species, 4 levels of magic, 4 magic items..
My theory is that they wanted the elf club to be 4 as well.

We should give each plothole an ID

- Who speaks when Twinsen drops the fragment in the Wannies' chapel ?
- At the end of LBA2 there is a FMV which shows Dino-Fly flying over the Hamalayis - this is Twinsen going back to Citadel Island for the first time. Dino-Fly was either on Citadel Island or Desert Island. Can Twinsen telepathically summon him ?

not to mention how it's possible that Twinsen flies that high

I think we all agreed it could be Dark Monk, but I thought it was one of those Wannie Priests (exactly the same voice if I recall)

Perhaps he has some sort of fluite

In LBA1 Dinofly said he can only fly in the northern hemisphere, but in LBA2 he can fly all over Twinsun!

In LBA2 start the rain goes right when it falling, but in the moive of the lighthouse, it goes left!

Maybe he did not have to summon Dinofly. He could have landed on Citadel Island and then taken Dinjofly to the Northern Hemisphere.

That we do not meet every member of the Elf club, does not mean it is a plot hole, if you do not meet someone, that does not mean he does not exist.
eg. There are hundreds of milions of Hindu's, have you met all of them? Does that mean there aren't that many?

ChaosFish, you are right. This was just carelessnes of the game's creators I think.

another hole: Twinsen enters the Temple of Bú Through a ventilation channel, but in the movie sequence, yhe temple floats over lava and apparently isn't connected with the outside world. And then, Twinsen just returns to the surface.

Clone guy, in lba1, you get to explore every nook and cranny of Twinsun, it is almost certain you see everyone.
The people we do not see are the people in the locked houses, etc..

But an elf, is someone you'd expect to see, i mean, where the frell could he be?

They gotta have a place, but wonder where...

The Elves don't have to stay put. He could just be in another place than Twinsen. But, well, And how about the Elf you see when you pour water in the reservoir on Principal Island? Have we met him before?

In LBA2, FunFrock states that he needed Twinsen to gather the four key fragments to raise the statue. But then how did he get in the staue to build his secret base and the antenna?
And why didn't he get the fragments himself? The Wannies are pious enouhg to hand it over to their god, the Sup's fragment was already at his didposal, The imerial army would eventually have takebn over the Mosquibee Island and he could have taken that, and a full scale digging operation on Franco Island would have given him thatfragment as well.
But, if he did this, Twinsen would have nothing to do, so this is a 'plot hole' to actually enable the story to exist

Now that I think of it, the Matrix got reference from LBA!
In the end of both, the hero which was uncertain about his destiny suddenly blasts to the sky.

Hmmm...I just thought of this:

In lba1, FunFrock needs two seperate factories to clone, ant teleport his clones, while in lba2, he apparently has no factories, but telepods and clones

He probably makes the clones in an improvised factory in the statue. You van see that the Groboclones are very angular and that the Rabbibunnies move even more robotic than in LBA1. The LBA2 clones are probably less refined, maybe that's why FunFrock's clones glow.

Has anyone got an idea on the plothole I posted above?

Wonder if they have TV Channels on Twinsun.
We can't really see much evidence, but we can see clearly evidence that they have some kind of T.V enjoyment at Julia's house on Principal Island..

Maybe they die from the water ?
Maybe it contains some kind of poision, and therefor they have the water tower on Principal Island, taking the posion away..
just a wild guess

Hmm...then I guess the Esmer in the Imperial Hotel is the only person (besides the undergas monsters) who can survive in the "water" of LBA.

It's no plothole, they just can't swim.
the social reason or biological reason for this is unknown, but the game reason is that Twinsen does not need to swim in the game, and therefor does not need to encounter anyone that does swim.

Well, I think if Twinsen could swim the game would be so much easier. Imagien swimming through the whole game.
