    Default Reread OOTS, I know who the one character is

    Many in the forum know that Word of Giant says that a character who has appeared exactly once will be significant.
    I believe I know who.

    Randy.

    Here is my supporting evidence:


    ...
    Okay I didnít think that far ahead.

    There. Unassailable logic.
    GENERATION 20XX: The first time you see this, realize that you could change it to as high a generation as you'd like. Then realize that this might be exactly what the creator was after and write it off. This is a social experiment.

    "Randy" and "Right" both have 5 letters.
    "Randy" and "Right" both start with R.
    "Randy" and "Right" have the same numerological value.
    Clearly, this theory is correct.

    We're gonna get a crossover with Rain, and Randy from OOTS will team up with Rand(y) M Guy from Rain.

    I guess the new book will need a plot now that all the main villains disintegrated themselves by walking over a line.

    (Well, technically there are some major surviving villains, so unless they also disintegrate themselves by walkin through a line on the floor, the plot should be fine.)

    The character we've only seen once is CLEARLY Belkar.

    Hopped up on Owl's Wisdom.

    https://www.giantitp.com/comics/oots0058.html

    The effect will become permanent before the end of the year and, since prophecies consider Evil Belkar to be a different moral entity from Wise Belkar, all the talk about Belkar dying will be fulfilled.

    There are certain magical books/manuals that can increase one's wisdom score. Belkar happens upon one soon - maybe they defeat a monster in the tunnels and that book's the loot. He reads one, and Wise Belkar appears. I like this concept. It's also the most annoyingly rules lawyery way to pull this off.

    It's going to be Redcloak's niece, whom we saw exactly once in the main strip, disguised as an unnamed background character.

    I wouldn't call Xykon an unnamed background character.

    So, Randy is the right answer... Or should I say... The "randy" answer?

    Redcloak's niece having an important role has been debunked by the Giant himself.

    Trigak's spouse is the new meta.


    Can we please make this happen? For all that fun conspiracy theories we had for Redcloak' niece i am suprised that nobody was pushing for the idea that Trigak's spouse might pull a search for revenge like the ABD did...
