Where does Hope's boomerang come from?

#1 Posted by thatguy42 (86 posts) -

I hope I wasn't the only one who noticed, but each battle Hope more or less pulls the boomerang out of a magic pocket in his pants.  Why the other characters use their weapon of choice is explained throughout the game.  On the other hand Hope's reason for using his weapon isn't given any explanation.

I would say something innapropriate but I won't..
 
so.. I have no idea where it goes....
 
Okay.. it leads to Narnia, Aslan holds it until he needs it again ^^

Of all the things left to question in Final Fantasy XIII... and it boils down to the origins of Hope's boomerang... -.-

I think he grabs it at the same time Vanille grabs her Rod...staff... thingy and just uses it throughout the course of the game. 
But then, it really isn't explained why Snow's weapon is actually a coat, either. The weapons aren't awesome plot devices. >.>

Hope's weapon isn't explained but I like to think he bought it Bodlum to hit his father with or something...
 
Snow uses the AMP technology that is within the emblems that appear on his coat to increase his physical prowess. He likes hit things and I guess AMP Emblems don't cost that much if he was able to buy one before the Purge.

The descriptions for all of the boomerangs are about competitions and how each one is better at different things in those competitions. I'm guessing Hope took part in the sport of magical boomerang.

He pulls it out of his arse, which I found to be extremely off putting.
