    To be fair, his behavior could just be the nihilistic realization that in the Circus nothing maters, there are no consequences. And wasn't it said that Jax deserved to be there the most? Would that not suggest that he is in a similar situation to the others?

      I think Jack tries to be mean as possible and not take anything seriously to distract himself from actually thinking about his circumstances and getting abstracted. No reason for an AI to do that since (unless it doesn't know its an ai) they can't get abstracted (probably)

    The only problem that I see with specifically Jax being the NPC is that he made a reference to Willy Wonka in the episode. To quote, “we’re seconds away from being Augustus Glooped!” Something that I imagine a human would know/reference, but not Caine, and if Caine wouldn’t know it, why would any of his NPCs?

    If anything, Jax gives me more of vibes of a hacker that broke into the system without warrant. Maybe that's why he has keys everywhere? Because he was able to hack himself access. And I mean, we've all seen what doxxer jerks are like online... It would also explain why he's so engaged in the activities. He wanted to get in on this game with crazy advanced Ai, but not just to play with in its intended way, more like how people make torture builds on games like The Sims.

      Yes! Sure, jax has keys to a lot of places, but he also needs to use them. Caine doesnt need keys, the same way an admin doesnt need any after logging in. Jax needs to play by the rules and only pulls off an occasional "sudo" in the form of those keys.

It's a really sweet exchange, and veryy strong evidence that Ragatha was indeed originally human.

      I think it’s pretty clear he’s most likely human since biblically Caine is paired with Able as his brother and the office backrooms thing had a C&A logo. So Caine and whoever Able is here made the game, but Caine’s possibly forgotten he’s human.

    I think Jax realized a while ago that they're all immortal and the most pain they seem to be able to feel is mild discomfort. If they're ever in any "danger," Caine will just save them. The real threat is losing your mind and abstracting so he's doing his best to keep things interesting for himself and others without being able to cause any serious harm.
    He's basically pulling a zero-approval gambit to keep everybody from succumbing to the monotony.

      this makes sense. getting a rise out of doing random obnoxious things just to make people feel something so they don't lose their humanity and abstract. might just be his way of trying to help people even if it makes him unlikeable. not even saying his way is a good way, but it might be his way all the same. the animation of his discomfort at being reminded of the recent "death" is purposeful as the animators had to actively animate that moment so it definitely means something in respect to that character.

    Something I’d like to point out is that in the first episode Pomni tries to take off her headset and just ends up stretching her eyes.

    I didn’t have enough time to watch the whole video so idk if this is mentioned but some people (including myself) think that Caine might be struggling to remember if HE is an npc.
    Another theory I have is that Zooble or Kinger is an npc. Kinger is just really dumb and doesn’t remember things from a few seconds ago and also know a suspicious amount of things about the digital world as proven in episode 1. Zooble is just cold and distant and the character we know the least about. Gooseworx has confirmed that episode 3 will be about Zooble. She has a also told us that there will be a big plot twist and most people think it will be “Jax is a npc” but maybe Gooseworx thinks no one will suspect her favorite character to be an npc. But remember, it’s just a theory!

    I believe Ragatha is a very likely candidate for the NPC twist actually! Whether or not she’s aware of it, she definitely acts as a “tutorial” type character; helping Pomni along with her arrival, trying to keep her on track with Caine’s antics, interacting directly with the candy princess and leading the gang along… she’s very mission oriented! Maybe that’s what she’s programmed to do. Not to mention, with Kinger being there the longest, she seems surprised that he remembers something about her from so long ago, shouldnt that mean she should be even slightly deteriorating mentally alongside him?? But in fact she seems one of the more stable of them all! Anywho, just my thoughts, just wanted to put them out there in case I’m right one day haha

      That's my thoughts too. She's acting like a "Toriel" type of character. Also Kinger's line about Ragatha taking so long to adjust seems like a weird throwaway line to me. Maybe it's because she's an NPC trying to blend in with the humans?
      I don't really like the idea of Jax as an NPC cause it makes his character more shallow. Like he's only doing this cause he's programmed to seems to be a cheap origin for a character. I like the theory that he was a game developer(it's why he has access to the circus) and a friend of his abstracted. After that he became more nihilistic. He's just letting his sadness and anger out to the other characters

He also doesn't seem to like the other characters either like at the end of episode 2 when Jax doesn't attend Kaulfmo's funeral, kinda like at the end of I have no Mouth and I must Scream where AM goes into Ted's mind and tells him how much he hates humans, this could comply that Jax is a NPC.

However, we do know from Gummigoo that AI can be advanced enough to have complex feelings, but Kane implies that that’s a rather recent development in new AI.

Perhaps our Jax was an NPC or programming assistance tool that saw an opportunity and replaced the original. That could end up with a second Jax showing up later. The other Jax could be partially abstracted or initially seem to be an evil twin before revealing that the others have been living with an NPC doppelganger.

      Honestly a better proof for this would have been the fact that it seemed like the gummy gators were cooking/eating the eggs in that scene, but since they don't eat them and there's no hunger-consequences, I don't think Caine knows that hunger has detrimental effects.
      He almost seems like some AI does in the current real world: Can replicate ideas enough (i.e. Hunger = Food, Humans tend to hunger, therefore humans need food - or in AI art logic: Hands = Fingers, Humans have hands, therefore humans have fingers) but don't understand the baseline "Why" this situation is happening (Hunger gives the body fuel to continue, and without food the body deteriorates ~ Fingers help humans grab on to things and so the placement/length/number is specific).
      Any of the human souls stating hunger without need further confuses Caine, since suddenly 'Hunger' isn't a necessity, it's just something to do when you're done with a task.

    2 things that weren't mentioned:
    first, if jax is an npc, it could be assumed he was from an adventure, and most likely was themed to match it. he's clearly a looney tunes style of cartoon character, so it could be possible his cartoony nature is why he is so prone to enjoy and seek out, as he says, violence and chaos, which is what most old cartoons amount to. this basically would make him a cross between roger rabbit and judge doom
    secondly, on the other side of it, in episode 2 jax mentions augustus gloop in the chocolate river, implying that he is either human and knows willy wonka, or the willy wonka reference is coded in and somehow jax understands it well enough to make the reference himself, which seems unlikely

    • @Grayscale10a1
      @Grayscale10a1 หลายเดือนก่อน +1

      it might be a bit of a stretch, but perhaps he learned the reference from a previous person in the circus. I don't really believe the theory but I think it's an interesting idea.

  • @MirTheWizard
    @MirTheWizard หลายเดือนก่อน +70

    My one main problem with this theory is a small detail where Jax mentions "Augustus Gloop" from Charlie and the Chocolate Factory. I feel like this implies he has clear knowledge of the outside world if he made a reference like this so i'm not sure that he's an AI.

      don't forget if this theory holds true though, that he is surrounded by other humans who may have knows about that. and since we don't know what the last character was like, it's entirely possible it was a reference that he had heard from the others.

    • @MirTheWizard
      @MirTheWizard หลายเดือนก่อน

      While this might be possible, I would be surprised if Jax was able to remember this very specific reference that can only be used in a very specific situation. Not saying it's impossible as it might be true, just not as likely in my opinion.

  • @grantmerrill1151

    Wait, then how did Jax get a room because only real people (or their conscience's) get rooms, we know this because in the room hallway when we see everybody's room there is no Caine or Bubble room (because their both A.I). So if Jax was an A.I he wouldn't have a room. Also in the first episode of TADC when Pomni tries to take the headset off Jax says "Just keep grabbing at it that worked for all of us." he says "us" meaning him and the cast all tried to take the headset off, so if Jax was an NPC it wouldn't make sense for him to say that cause he knows he doesn't have a VR headset on.

      ​ @THEMIGHTYPRESTON666 I can see a switch happening. They're in a digital space, so borrowing someone else's model doesn't have to be impossible. It's possible the original Ragatha decided to stay on some adventure world while an NPC took her place, or that she flat out abstracted (episode 1 shows that Caine isn't immediately notified of abstractions) and some NPC saw the opportunity to take her place.
      The only issue with that is that the show is character-focused, which means it's more likely to explore a change in personality than a simple switch, but that's just meta reasoning.

He's always casual, adding humor in crazy situations, he mentions food all the time so people are like "lol same," he's sarcastic and somewhat quippy, and he's voiced by the OG femboy spider. They knew they had something here that people would love.

In Episode 2, if he wasn’t so forceful, they never would’ve met the Fudge, a main character according to the dev room, because Gangle’s driving would be less reckless and Kinger wouldn’t throw the anchor overboard for Pomni, who was thrown out by him.

    I still think there's a definite possibility that it's not any of the main cast and is instead someone we haven't been introduced to yet. The way Caine talks about it, it's like something very big and very bad already happened, but if Jax was the NPC all along then he's kinda just been vibing with the cast and not really causing major issues that would warrant Caine's extreme reaction or delete-on-sight protocol for NPCs in the Circus. Whilst maybe not as narratively satisfying, I feel like it's more likely we'll get some kind of flashback to a character who used to be with the main cast but turned out to be an NPC and made things go haywire, before Caine ended up deleting them. And there's a good chance that Ragatha was the one who brought them in based on her comment of "is that allowed..?" to Pomni's suggestion of keeping Gummigoo around.

    • @reiianyt
      @reiianyt หลายเดือนก่อน +3

      I feel like if Ragatha had been in that situation before, she would have said something closer to an affirmative statement: "Uhm... That's not allowed, Pomni"
      Or maybe a shocked response, like: "Wait, why'd you bring in an NPC?!"
      Since she expresses doubt, it is unlikely she's been in that situation before.
