WAIT

I have just come to a realization!!
C.C didn't want ... mroe like couldn't have Lelouch die due to their contract...
And therefore, he could not have died! If he did take her codes, then it would not matter whether he gets stabbed because he will still lives on with his immortality!

LELOUCH IS ALIVE! (:

At the end of R2, do you think that Lelouch really died? :D







The picture of Lelouch is photoshopped. I don't remember seeing him riding the carriage. I've rewatched the last episode many times trying to find it. There is no record of that.

Many people have already discussed this theory of Lelouch obtaining his father's code, but we have no actual proof Lelouch obtain the code. More over it is believed that he did not in fact take Charle's code and that code died along with Charles. C.C still has her code and there are only the 2 code's for immortality. The only possibility that Lelouch is alive is from staging his own death as I said before. However you are correct in the fact that only Lelouch could grant C.C's true wish, which I believe is true love as she has never had true love before, only artificial love due to her geass. For Lelouch to grant this he would have to be alive, but since he chose to atone for his sins he may have broken that contract with C.C,

Also just to clear anything up for people, The Nightmare of Nunnally, that is just a one-off tankabon that answers some questions raised about Nunally, specifically the elusive nightmare she has. It is not the 3rd chapter of this story.

This anime is the best one I've watched so far. The ending is one of mystique and mystery (I'm Not really a fan of cliff-hangers though). Seeing all the replies and theories people have come up with for lelouch dead or alive and taking into consideration the code geass that we have come to love and cherish, this is my take of the lelouch ending( or continuation...anyway you like to phrase it). No spoilers... just theories. You decide true or otherwise.

1st and foremost, Lelouch Lamperouge DID die... Sunrise has even mentioned it in one of his articles. I think the guide book tells you the same too.
The scene of Lelouch vi Britannia's death in this world was the sacrifice he needed to make the world progress to "world peace" simply put.

However, Sunrise's official standing is the death of Lelouch Lamperouge,LL. Now, lets think, who or what exactly is LL? Is it name of the emperor set to die, or was it the fake identity created by Lelouch so that he could remain in hiding in Ashford? My answer is definitely the latter. In that case, it would be the truth but also an irony to say that Lelouch killed Lelouch....or rather his fake identity he no longer needed since the entire world knows that he was alive and well. He did all this when he formerly announced that he was Lelouch vi Britannia, LVB and he would succeed the throne to the Holy Empire. The name of LL shall never be invoked ever again.

Now, onto the juicier argument whether LVB perished as many have hoped. There has no real official announcements/standings to this so this is an open,theoretical argument.
You can say that he didn't die because he switched with sayoko, but Sayoko-switch theory doesn't fit cause it is seen that she is imprisoned with the Earl of pudding, Lloyd, if I remember correctly. She can be nowhere near lelouch as she is also seen "defecting" to the Black Knights during the final battle. The switch would be impossible, it would definitely arouse suspicion if lelouch set her free now....
You can say that the blood is fake,....Yeah right!...Can you fake the sword-stabbing too?



The theory I support the most is that the CG universe is filled with surprises, and that he is ALIVE. My stand-point is that since LVB killed his father by ordering the "gods" to do his dirty work, he has obtained the code from CVB. As you know, CVB grabbed LVB's neck just before he got absorbed by C's world, which is ample opportunity to pass the code to LVB. And LVB has the highest level geass encompassing both of his eyes, which seems to be the only requirement to obtain the code.
However, you can argue that LVB still had his geass when he assumed control over britannia. But, if you recall, the way CC received her code from the nun was when the nun forcefully gave her the code, and killed CC in order for the code to integrate fully. This is even better shown in the case of Charles vi Britannia, when LVB ordered his death twice. CVB killed himself the 1st time, and he died for a little while before rising back from the dead. Realise that after he died, he lost his geass and the code set in, making him invulnerable to any geass and physical damage, which later allowing him to move in and out of C's world FREELY like CC could.
(Please do not consider that the code donor has to kill himself in order for this to work...cause VV didn't die from giving his code, he died from his wounds)
Therefore, in order for LVB to become immortal, he must 1st DIE! And what better way to do it than to get stabbed in front of everyone to succeed in achieve a world which Nunnally could live in freely. Realise that earlier I said that the scene of Lelouch vi Britannia's death in this world was the sacrifice he needed to make the world progress to "world peace". To me, the "sacrifice" was the best SCHEME he had pulled off yet!!! The only sacrifice he needed to pull was to never show his face in public or politics ever again!
CC was praying in the chapel, hoping that his big magic show would grant him Immortality and NOT FOR HIS DEATH!! This is because they do not fully know how the code would set in as all the data had been wiped during the attack on the GEASS order. This is why LVB would have thought of the best way to die "If I truly die and not become Immortal, it would only be once. So might as well make my death (hopefully not my only one) meaningful to the creation of a better world for my sis."

He had spent a month thinking how to achieve the Zero requiem before he actually carried out the 1st stage of his plan, which was to take Britannia. Don't tell me he wasted it on predicting Schniezel's nature and taking over Britannia. He would have thought of that LONG AGO!

Besides, the LVB-being-the-cab-driver theory doesn't seem to bad either. Its in sync with my theory as he must hide his face forever.
Also, Anybody realizes that its a bit strange for CC to be in a cart filled with hay with a complete stranger driving the cart? And she seems to be talking to Lelouch.... I know she's mysterious but she's not some kind of leech or maniac who talks to herself either (take the times she seems to be talking to herself, she is actually talking to Marianne). Therefore, it is not a complete stranger. Why would she give up her free-roaming carefree life to FARMING?! It is someone she would want to spend her entire life with. And thus, there can only be one answer, LVB became the lowly cab driver.

This is what I truly believe...

"All hail Lelouch! Lelouch Vi Britannia!.... The biggest liar and anti-hero there is! MuAhAhAhAh!"

Lelouch died and as someone in this threat replied, "he died as a martyr", I couldn't agree more.

Ah, a bittersweet ending for Code Geass: Lelouch of the Rebellion. C.C. did mention that the path of the king or one who holds Geass will be a lonely one.

Who knows? I'd like to believe in the rumor that Lelouch has retreated to a peaceful life in the countryside, secluded from media and all. Not to mention, C.C. is with him if the driver of that wagon is indeed, Lelouch himself.

... Shikashi, there's many morals shown throughout Code Geass that I have yet to grasp all of them. So, I do not think that Lelouch's death was in vain as he was able to re-direct all the hatred of the world, every nation, to one common enemy.. and that was Lelouch vi Britannia. Nunally, "like sister, like brother", had the same idea of making Damocles the center of hatred for all of the world and with it, the controller ... Nunally. Lelouch, as the loving brother he is, could not bear such a thing for the one he's been fighting for.. throughout the whole anime, with respect to the other ambitions he had proposed during the seasons.

It was some moment though when Lelouch was laying back on the ramp, in a pool of his own blood beside Nunally. She was crying but what was more was that her cries seemed to be trying to pierce through the cheers for "Zero! Zero! Zero! Zero!", definitely got me to sympathize for her and her brother, Lelouch.

What pain can anyone of them understand but his own dear little sister, Nunally?

Good story. May the world remember Lelouch as either a tyrant or a person with a dream to realize all dreams.

"Yes, mi lord!"

I believe that he is still alive, somewhere out there but even if he is, the people who made CG wouldn't really tell us and would leave us to what we believe in.

Besides that, I read in some articles that they had it hard working on CG and I think one of the reasons they made Lelouch "dead" is to already end CG and if Lulu is gone, no more season 3 or OVA...

Lelouch's death was probably the best death in an anime I have ever seen. I love the theory that he didn't really die, although in a way it would be better if he had died. Despite being one of my favorite characters I think his death was a great final.

Halfway through the first and most of the second season, I thought he was insane and very much like Light Yagami - gone insane and wanted to destroy the world. But, the last episode changed my view.

In a way...I hope that he's alive and making use of his life out of the public eye.

Suzaku is an interesting character, he and Lelouch were friends that conspired the "birth" of a new world, and in doing so, Lelouch would have to die. In the end, Suzaku truly cared for Lelouch, and gave his friend his wish.

But CG 3 would be nice is Lelouch reappeared.

Should stay dead, as his sacrifice would have more meaning.

But this alternate ending is cool too: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=PEAAaqEl03Q

I'm really not sure if Lelouch is alive but I really don't think there will be a R3, even if I want there to be. It was good ending because it gave me something to wonder about. The only people who know if he died or not are the creators.
