No sword can stop it, no spear, dart, or javelin.

I think this one is probably more coincidental. Still, it fits!

This obviously implies something of invincibility. Super Sonic is in fact invincible and cannot be penetrated by any force.

So, this reference as well makes the 4126 all the more convincing that it is a bible reference. You got two pretty solid references so far, so I'm pretty convinced.

Wasn't Naka about 26 while developing S2? Maybe he had a very fun april fools day when he was 26?

I really think it's all coincidences.

I always just assumed it was an internal build number of the game for some reason. However, the possibility of a Bible reference is very intriguing.

I doubt they put bible references into the games. I thought they were some kind of significant dates.

Not always (for Knuckles in Sonic 2 they went with 1, 6, 7, 7, 7, 2, 1, 6 - 16777216 is 2²⁴, aka the number of combinations you can store in three bytes - though that came out later so I suppose they just looked for a number that resembled something...).

No, it was developed in the US (as a cooperation between members from Sonic Team and STI, so half Japanese and half American developer-wise)



Well in that case could it be possible that STI had something to do with the cheat codes? STI (possibly knowing of Naka's birthday or such.) add the biblen reference. Besides, doesn't the Jap's also have some significance with the number 7? There's something in the back of my skull that has an explanation and a link to it. I'll get back to everyone on that.


Waiting for theory to be shot down in 3.....2......1.......

Yeah, what association do you make between 4-1-2-6 and 7? =P

Also 7 is an important number in a lot of cultures (Japanese included).

I wasn't. I was stating on the possibility that STI had the say of cheat codes and such. It seems more convenient where America (which has a large amount of christians) would reference that.
Someone at STI may have heard about the seven emeralds, thought to themselves "I know a good in-joke or whatever to reference SEVEN emeralds.

Quote

The seven healthy cows and the seven healthy heads of grain both represent seven years of prosperity.


It could literally be a vast number of things. It's like saying about how Super Sonic is a direct reference to Goku because of his spikes going up and turning golden/yellow. SEVEN Dragonballs.

7 as in lucky number 7.

7 goes well with videogames too.

Anyway *tired rambling over*

Pretty interesting observation there with the bible extract. Would be good to know for sure if the team intended that link.

Bill Willis was an assistant programmer for the game. Since he is the only American (well, I assume he is by his name) on the team, it makes it more likely that he'd be a Christian, and therefore I wonder if he was responsbile for the cheat code.

I really love how half this thread is shitting on this just because it has a Christian basis. Please don't argue out of it, its fucking obvious. The mindset in here ought to be "Oh cool. We should look into this." Instead you're quick to rain on the fucking parade for no reason. We've documented theories and coincidences in the past. Why not now? I'm willing to hold this up as a possibility, but counter-theories are always acceptable.

Are you aiming this at me or in general?

As far I'm concerned no one (myself included) is "raining on the fucking parade".

as for myself. I'm just talking on the basis of possibilites and such. If you do not like that then that's your problem.

Don't forget though that companies (including Sega) try to avoid every single attempt at a religious reference because they are afraid some religious nut will come out and complain and possibly put everything under a bad light. So that alone could put into doubt this whole theory, although you could argue it's so subtle they let it pass... so it could be either, really.

I totally agree Sik. I'm just trying to keep this from getting swept under the rug because OH GOD CHRISTIAN OVERTONES CAN'T HAVE THAT ON OUR MAGICAL NIHILISTIC RETRO FORUMS. I'd love to contact the American dev team to see if we can get an explanation for the code. But people shitting on this will only serve to hinder research on this. How about we keep an open mind on this and find other connections?
