What's the 'official' ending in Tsukihime?

Unread postby potaatti » January 18th, 2007, 3:19 pm

I have been wondering what is the 'official' ending in Tsukihime, or if there is one at all. And as half of the endings are named True endings, would it mean that they are more 'official' than the Good endings?

All True Endings can be considered to be the kanon ending for that character, but the only real ending of Tsukihime as a whole is the Kohaku ending together with the Eclipse epilogue. As stated in the readme, the official order of the routes is Arcueid, Ciel, Akiha, Hisui, Kohaku.

The official ending seems to be arcueid's true ending, all the tsukihime side materials seems to be following the route where arcueid goes to sleep and shiki becomes a uber killer for her.

But i think we need to wait for tsukihime 2 to be sure.

The Satsujinki stories are a gag from the creators - in one of Ciel's lessons she coins the name in an attempt to lay claim on Shiki against Ciel (translated as Shikiller). It's not an official storyline at all if you take Tsukihime itself to be kanon.

Nasu might have decided to make it a reality though.

Hmm.. so the Good/Normal endings aren't considered 'canon'?

Has he said or indicated that they are official? I mean, there are other material (like Kagetsu Toya or Melty Blood) that are based on other endings, so I dunno if it's reasonable to just assume that those side materials are canon, especially if they are a gag.

Kanon, canon, I dunno. But in the end it just depends on how you view it, even the good endings can be considered real. They're part of the game, after all.

Kagetsu Tohya/Melty blood use arcueid's good ending/Sacchin's true(i think) ending respectively. However all those side stories all use arcueid's true ending.....IMHO thats the most likely canon ending.

So the authors haven't said which is the official ending? Wouldn't it then mean that all the endings are as official until they tell which one is official or a sequel is made (or those side materials you are referring to are made official)? :?

Uhhh, you might want to check your sources on that. KT uses various endings from Tsukihime and there is even no such thing as a Satsuki route...

Its been mentioned countless times that melty blood supposedly uses one of satsuki's endings.....was probably taken from an interview or something. Try asking on beast lair.

Technically kagetsu tohya DOES use multiple endings, but the start of the game where shiki goes to meet arcueid clearly follows arcueid's good endings. The other side stories, etc where akiha is waiting for shiki, all happen while shiki is in ren's dream world, where its all messed up(cough tohno family con game cough).

Probably split parallel universes. Thus making all endings real endings, but only certain ones that are followed up with.

Concidering that Shingetsutan Tsukihime used the Arc True ending it's not too far off to say it's the official one..

Hmm.. I guess that might be true. Well, dang, I didn't particularly like the True ending.

Until they come out with an a Tsukihime 2 game or Tyoe-Moon announces that one of them is (unlikely at this point) that takes place following one of the endings, as said before, any of the endings can be seen as real because the various other offshoots use different endings.

puKKa's statement is just as valid as those citing Kagetsu Tohya or Melty Blood, for that manner, people who just want to believe whatever. In fact, the use of multiple endings that are used with various offshoots from the game supports my theory atleast, but my idea is just a theory and has no more credence to it than anyone else.

Well, that's a good point..

I guess there's no single official ending, then..

sorry for the grave digging of an old topic :]

I just had one more thing to say on this, since it was not yet said here. The true ending of Arcueid is actually called 'tsukihime' right? So since it has the name of the game, I think it can be considered the main ending maybe. I think the game might have been created around this story, expanding it.

But of course this does not claim the ending to be an official one. Since all stories lines show different things, i think at least all story lines can considered true in its own ways. As long as there is no official word on it, people can just take there favorite ending as their own official :P
