Zi-O should have a twist

Post by takenoko » Sun Jun 09, 2019 12:06 am

The series should end with Sougo turning into a bad guy. Imagine, having the guy you were rooting for the whole time turn heel and just destroying the world.

That nice guy act? Just that.

Decade didn't work because he was both a hero and a destroyer. Don't make the same mistake here. Let Zi-O become Oma Zi-O.

Not that I don't think that would be a cool twist in any show, but we've come this far with Sougo fighting his destiny, alongside Geiz finally coming around to support him, that I feel like going that way couldn't possibly be satisfying.

Though I suppose if this show was insane (or stupid) enough, I can see Sougo suddenly overcome with a whole new wave of self-doubt within the course of one episode, turning into Oma Zi-O, and then his friends pull him out of it in the very next episode (the finale?). It's not a good idea at all but I can actually totally see it happening.

I don't think this will happen.

It should have some kind of twist though. The only thing they are keeping secret is whatever Swartzs deal is and I bet it will be underwhelming.

The twist is that it doesn't end properly and we get an unsatisfactory movie epilogue

I think there's a few interesting twists they could go with, If i was fantasy booking this show, i'd totally have the twist be that Sougo IS the hero and defeats Oma Zi-O at the end with geiz & the timejackers dying in the final battle (really miserable Rogue One style), but that makes an even WORSE bad ending than the one that Geiz & the timejackers come from. Sougo just crumples to the floor, then Decade shows up and kills the BSOD'd sougo who doesn't put up any fight, destroying that nightmare world and fixing all the timelines. Then we see decade wander through his reality wall thing to a scene identical to the first episode and gives Sougo the Oma Zi-O belt and that sougo then inerits all the memories of our Sougo, who falls to the ground crying and this is the Zi-O that reappears in future team-ups and crossovers.

It's a really good thing i'm not a toei writer :P

The twist is that there is no twist.

I keep wondering about the Black Woz/White Woz thing as well as the Time Jackers role . . . why a Black (usually a symbol of evil) and a White (usually a symbol of good) Woz? Of course, one is gone . . . so what does that mean? Was that just filler to get more watches and/or take care of possible future rider watches? And are the Time Jackers trying to save the Earth or destroy it . . . are they interfering with Sougo or Woz or Geiz and Tsukoyomi - just what is their goal? Maybe I've missed these points - but if there's a twist, I think it'll come from Woz or Tsukoyomi (possibly because she's related to Schwartz ).

White is also the color associated with self righteousness and oppression, whereas black is sometimes associated with free will and rebellion.

Look no further than the old JRPG trope of God or the church being evil.
