  118. Guilty Gear -Strive- script#Strive


  1. Assumes Slayer's arcade mode still takes place in 2187
  2. given as 2099 in the Complete Bible
  3. Slayer mentions fighting Flament Nagel 25 years ago. An exact date is not given for when he is telling this story but it is implied that it is before he encounters A.B.A again in Accent Core Plus but after Slayer has retired meaning it is likely to be 2181
  4. (Dizzy's exact date of birth is unknown, with it being presumed to be 25th of December[40])
  5. (The date is unclear, but Ky has a flashback to the crusades & mentions something 15 years ago. A date that works with this information is 2167 when Ky joined the Holy Order, with 15 years later giving the year 2182.)
  6. (Dizzy says in the Guilty Gear 2 Overture Material Collection Sin is around 6 months, so taking this literaly means the event happened sometime around November 2182, but due to the date given in GG World's timeline this event most likely happens in early 2183 & her estimation is wrong.)
  7. (Incorrectly listed as ending in 2187 in GG World Chronology, as every other sources list the defeat happening in 2186)
  8. someone needs to check the japanese version of xrd to see if Pot gives him the name, he doesn't in the English version but it seems like its the intention of the scene. (see the note on Bedman's page)
  9. In Chipp's arcade route, he shows up to Japan alone. In May's arcade route, they arrive together.
  10. Story Mode picks up directly after this cutscene. However it is unclear when the Cradle Incident actually happened. Dr. Paradigm claims it was "around noon."[55]
  11. 3:15pm Illyria Local Time
  12. In game dialogue says that it is November 1st, but on-screen text say it is November 4th and the events in the story mean this cannot possibly be true.
  13. Jam’s arcade mode is the only one that does not list dates, but it has to happen sometime between Jack-O’s release from the Sanctuary and the 15th.
  14. Revelator’s Story Mode doesn’t contain any specific dates, but Leo was in the Japanese colony on the 18th and is back in Illyria Castle by Story Mode which would, assumedly, take at least one day. Note that the only timeframes we are given is that the Celebration of Victory is "quite close" to the American Thanksgiving holiday[95] which can fall anywhere from November 22nd-28th. The heroes are given 52 hours to stop this[96]. All future dates will be under the assumption of this November 19th date.
  15. This event appears to take place near sundown, the following scenes appear to take place during the day. There is also a earlier scene this Chapter of Sin looking at the stars. Thus the following scenes are labeled as November 20th.
  16. Asuka said in the previous scene (that takes place at night) that he has already informed the media of his plans, and that the government will probably soon act. The end of After Story A is a report saying that Asuka has surrended himself to the US in the morning.
  17. Sol says they have "a whole day" a driving before they reach the capital of Illyria
  18. HC says that "tomorrow... It might be called hell." Which is most likely in reference to his attack on the White House.
  19. Jack-O's Xrd GG World entry[112] states that she is "not yet born," which in Strive is swapped to December 13th. This along with the theme of birthdays sprinked in Strive's Story Mode is highly implied to be the day G4 takes place.
  20. (It is made unclear who succeeds Ky)
