This seems to be a religious issue, judging by the amount of arguing I found while I was searching for the information contained in this answer. At the very least, xjshiya's answer is not universally accepted, and there are a lot of people who flat out reject that theory. In my opinion the evidence against the other theory is more compelling. I'm going to ...

Lelouch is really the cart driver at the end of Code Geass R2. Quoting from this blog post: The most obvious reason would be CC calling to Lelouch in the closing scene of the episode. As we can assume CC to be still sane, she must be talking to someone, and that someone would most probably be the driver of the cart: Lelouch would have to be alive. Second, ...

On the Code Geass Wikia it says Nina is shown masturbating to her picture in episode 12. "Her" refers to Euphemia. Nina began to develop a crush for her back during the Japanese Liberation Front Hotel Incident when Euphie revealed her identity to the JLF to save Nina from being attacked. Nina's crush on Euphie is almost obsessive and even what she says ...

At the very beginning, right after he got his powers, Lelouch may not have been sure that it was possible to give such powerful orders. This is why, for example, Lelouch ordered a female student from the academy to engrave a cross-mark on a wall every day forever: to determine how long a geass would last. Presumably, he was performing similar experiments ...

What does a.t.b. stand for? It stands for "Ascension Throne Britannia", named after the "date the first Celtic super-king, Eowyn, was elected by the united British tribes to battle Rome, becoming the first member of the modern Britannian imperial family."{1} 55 B.C. is equivalent to 1 a.t.b. How can we convert between a.t.b. and R.Y.? The Revolution ...

I answered my own question partway through writing it with a visit to http://iqdb.com. Rather than delete the question, I made it a shill for iqdb (brought to my attention by Logan M. in this question's answer.) iqdb led me to this page that lists all the series and characters in this picture. The far left pair is Lelouch and Nunnally Lamperouge from Code ...

When the Code is obtained, the one who obtains it seems to lose their Geass Powers. We see this happen with C.C in her flashbacks as beforehand she had the Geass Power to make everyone love her. In the scene where we last see with her Geass her Geass is now uncontrollable before the Nun admits she tricked C.C, from then on we see C.C's Geass Sigals on her ...

This was all part or Lelouch's Zero Requiem plan. Suzaku agreed to ally with Lelouch after the Tokyo Settlement incident with the F.L.E.I.J.A., specifically after his one-sided conversation with Jeremiah Gottwald.

In answer to your question, Code Geass: Akito of the Exiled (Code Geass: Boukoku no Akito) is set during the 1 year gap between the 2 Anime Series of Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion set during the time when Britannia was putting pressure on their EU Front Another peice of evidence to show that Code Geass: Akito of the Exiled is set in between the 2 ...

It's because he did order Euphie to massacre the Japanese people. In Stage 22 - Bloodstained Euphie after Euphie had invited Zero to attend the commemoration ceremony for the Special Administrated Zone, Lelouch had planned to use his Geass on Euphie to shoot him. It would have looked like Britannia had declared the zone to lure out Zero to be assassinated ...

I like to think of them as purely moral choices, not at ALL for practicality. In the beginning of R2, Kallen asked if she was geassed into obeying Zero, or something to that effect. Lelouch makes it clear that she followed under her own will, which presumably, he wanted for all of the Black Knights. Note that he only ordered "Obey Me!!!" after the Black ...

I am not that sure if there is any official explanation about this. But from what I understand and have answered here, Lelouch got his dad's code. He beckoned the World of C to lend him its powers, and he took Charles's code before Charles passed on. The reason why Lelouch still has his Geass is because he didn't take the Code from the same person ...

The Wikipedia page has a good explanation of the role that CLAMP played on the production. To summarize it, CLAMP was contacted during the beginning planning stages. They provided ideas that helped with the development of the setting and characters. When they were developing Lelouch, Ageha Ohkawa, the head writer at CLAMP, said that she saw him as a ...

it's the Raikō which, as the Wiki says, literately translates to Lightning. It's a Japanese Seige weapon which was originally developed by the Japanese Liberation Front, first seen in the JLF's Hotel Hijacking which saw Euphie held hostage and the rise of the Black Knights. it was later used by the Black Knights duing the Assault on Tokyo Settlement in the ...

Lelouch is officially confirmed dead Over the past 10 years the creators of the show have repeatedly explained that Lelouch is truly dead. This was done in interviews, articles, tweets, live commentary, the official guide book, the remade epilogue (from 2009) where they dropped the misunderstood hay cart scene and replaced it with C.C. explicitly narrating ...

This blogpost adequately explains how she could have survived. I also do not believe there was as much of a vacuum because at that point in time the FLEIJAs still had a limiter. It was not until the destruction of the Capital city of Pendragon that the limiters were removed. This is the summary of the link: After Sayoko rescued Kallen she went on ahead to ...

Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion is a retelling of the anime. It's been ages since I read this, but I don't recall there being any major differences in terms of plot. (It wasn't a shot-for-shot adaptation, though; there were minor changes here and there. Code Geass: Suzaku of the Counterattack starts out as a retelling of the anime from Suzaku's ...

TL;DR: He never changed sides. Suzaku's allegiance remained with the Britannia Empire the whole series. After the events in C world that culminated with the Emperor's death, Lelouch became the new Emperor, and it was only logical that Suzaku would serve Britannia's Emperor, Lelouch. Both Lelouch and Suzaku had the same goal: to restore Britannia and end ...

This is only a partial answer as I don't actually think the names of characters came from anything else, just chosen names. However, in the case of Britannian Terminology a lot of it comes from legends. Arthurian legends The Elite group Suzaku joins, the Knights of the Round, is based on the Knights of the Round Table. I'm quite sure each of their ...

As there is no direct evidence to explain how it would affect them I would assume, With the Knight of One, Bismark, I would dare say he wouldn't see the "before images" thus unable to predict their movement. Considering that he was the Knight of One and had his eye sewn shut, I would assume it wouldn't hinder him all that much not having his Geass as he ...

The affair with Shirley comes to a head in episode 14, when Shirley tries to shoot Lelouch after being manipulated by Mao. Shirley fails but is still wracked by guilt, having shot Villetta Nu earlier and presumed her to be dead. In the ensuing exchange, Lelouch tries to comfort her by telling her that her actions are his responsibility. However, regardless ...

She isn't sleeping or unconscious as after Lelouch calls Ohgi we see C.C is awake (6:15), remember, this is C.C, she will usually lounge around the place eating Pizza. Lelouch learned moments before that his actions at the Battle of Narita caused the death of Shirley's father Conversation between Lelouch and Shirley: Shirley: Lou Lou, tell me. Zero, he ...

There is no manga that I know of that would be more canon than the anime. So do not worry about "not having read the manga". The advantage of having Gilford mistake Lelouch for Cornelia is that he can leverage Gilford's loyalty to continue giving him orders as long as the Geass is under effect, and having Gilford take whatever initiative necessary that is ...

Answering your question to the letter, a Geass is created when a code user makes a contract with a human. The type of Geass and its specific powers are dependent on the Code user, the new Geass user's personality and other specifics that are not discussed in the canon material. But I feel like your question is not about how Geass powers comes into ...

The Geass-in-both-eyes thing is just how the ever-increasing strength of Lelouch's Geass manifests. C.C. mentions on multiple occasions that his Geass will grow stronger and stronger, to the point that it cannot be controlled (even by the special contact lenses). I don't think there's anything to it beyond that. Lelouch's Geass seems to grow stronger ...

Clovis was killing innocent Elevens not just the resistance/terrorists …just as former Viceroy Clovis was punished for ordering the slaughter of countless unarmed Elevens. We cannot stand by and allow such cruelty to be carried out, and so we made him pay for his actions. I will not repudiate battle on a fair and level field, but neither will I tolerate a ...

So I am wondering, does Cheese-kun exist in Japan? If so, did it exist before or after Code Geass? Yes, Cheese-kun exists IRL and predates Code Geass. See, for example, this 13 Aug 2006 Wayback Machine snapshot of a page on Pizza Hut's Japanese website, which includes images of Cheese-kun. And does it still represent Pizza Hut now? The /pizzahut.japan ...

Because Lelouch's Geass can only be used on a given person once, ever. This is one of the fundamental limitations of his Geass. Indeed, it is when his second Geass on Kallen fails that Lelouch realizes that this limitation exists.

First of all. Nunnally most likely did not see Lelouch memories. One of the abilities Nunnaly has is her extreme perceptiveness and intelligence Nunnally has shown to be not only perceptive, but also intelligent by coming up with a similar plan as Lelouch (using the Damocles as an object of hatred). source With this information given and the fact ...

According to this wiki page (emphasis mine): There is only one instance of a person overcoming the effects of Geass, which is the case of Nunnally - Lelouch attributes this to a very strong degree of will power, which may have been helped along by Charles being dead by then, though there is no mention of her recovering the lost memories of her mother's ...
