A pretty crazy theory
So, I was thinking about Meta Knightmare and Revenge of Meta Knight (two games from KSS) and after a bit of thinking...
What if the Meta Knight in Revenge of Meta Knight WASN'T the real Meta Knight?
I have several factors that support this theory:
1.) In Meta Knightmare, Meta Knight ends up fighting a SECOND Meta Knight
2.) From my intuition, it seems like the real Meta Knight would be too busy with Meta Knightmare to even bother taking over Dreamland
3.) Also from my intuition (and Meta Knightmare), the real Meta Knight doesn't seem interested in taking over dreamland, unlike the fake Meta Knight
So there. say what you like. I'll probably come up with some more reasons.
