But as the Lord of Time, she’s the embodiment of the 2000-year-old time loop itself. Each version of Chronodia contains a Fiend accumulated through the time loop. This may have been the real reason she maintains the time loop, t power of all Fiends. The Warriors of Light’s collective powers feed Chronodia’s powers.
Right around Dissidia Final Fantasy release, Square Enix published the 20th Anniversary Edition for Final Fantasy. In this sense, Final Fantasy Dissidia becomes a prequel to Final Fantasy I. We find out that the Warrior of Light from World B IS one of the Warriors of Light. The game ends with the Warrior of Light walking on the fields to Cornelia Castle. From there, he meets the other three Warriors of Light to speak with the King to save the princess.
But what about the story of Dissidia? What happens to Shinryu and Cid of the Lufaine? Well, as we know from Dissidia Final Fantasy NT, Shinryu becomes an end boss in World B. Yet, the Warriors of Light are able to defeat the real entity in Soul of Chaos dungeon. Much like World B, the Soul of Chaos is a compilation of all dungeons in World A. However, Shinryu couldn’t have been responsible with Soul of Chaos. He’s apart of this simulation. We can defeat Shinryu in the Lifespring Grotto. So then how did the Soul of Chaos come about?
Another question might proved to be the answer: who is Chronodia? Most likely, she’s the mysterious figure with the hood who leads the Warriors of Light to the Labyrinth of Time. She’s also the “Lord of Time”. She controls all of time, meaning that only through her permission can anyone manipulate time. Knowing this, Chronodia must have influenced Garland’s misunderstanding of the time loop.
