Truths
  • Kyrie is the culprit. On the first twilight, she shot the five people in the dining hall. Locked the door with Gohda's key they stole unnoticed and returned it in the same fashion.
    On the second twilight, after she and Rudolf knocked the rest out, they disappeared to fake their deaths. And Kyrie must have betrayed Rudolf and killed him for reals. Dragging his body against the door, and made it seem the same happened to her.
    On the fourth twilight, she could have made use of Kinzo's automatic lock, and slipped through the door as it was about to close.
    On the fifth, sixth, and seventh twilight. She killed Gohda, Eva, and finally Hideyoshi. To make it seem like locked rooms. She could have simply hidden in each and every room, waiting for George to arrive. And slipped in the next room, before George, and locked herself in, hiding in some place George never investigated. She previously forced Hideyoshi to call to the guesthouse to lure George in.
    She killed George accordingly.
    After Jessica left, she slipped out the mansion to kill everyone in the guesthouse.
    Finally, she came back and killed Jessica.
  • Kyrie's body in the kitchen was definitely dead, due to disembowelment confirmed by Battler's faceplant, and her face was not so damaged as to cause misidentification, as her death was caused by multiple stabbings to the abdomen. Kyrie was dead by the time Battler's group entered the kitchen and discovered her.
  • Somebody who we thought was outside the kitchen, was actually hiding inside the kitchen!
  • Kanon is the culprit. You altered the game board severely to make this trick possible. There are 18 people on the island. A boy got killed which was dressed up as Kanon. Krauss mistook that boy as Kanon so the real Kanon could roam free. It would explain how he was able to hide in the freezer of the kitchen on the second twilight to make it seem it was a locked room.
  • No one was hiding in the freezer at the time the kitchen was entered by Battler's group.
  • The culprit is Kinzo., who was secretly alive. He stole Gohda's master key to commit the first murders. Naturally, the servants that knew of him still being alive had to perish first.

    He ambushed the two groups by turning off the lights separetely in two locations. Kyrie and Rudolf got a chance to resist but the guns proved useless as the bullets had been replaced by blanks.
    The bodies were brought to the kitchen and stabbed several times. Then some rope was bound around them and laid out on the floor out of the room, underneath the door. Perhaps some ice from the freezer or oil was used to make the floor more slippery for the pulling.
    The door was closed and locked with a key from the knocked out people, which then got returned.
    Then he just pulled them towards the door with the rope, leaving the bloodtrail.
    The rest again proceeded similarly to what the other detective stated. Kinzo can roam the mansion freely and just ambushed one of Eva or Gohda as he got the chance, using their keys to create Gohda's locked room.
    For Hideyoshi's, he either got him through the gap while the chain was set, or Hideyoshi managed to set it after being attacked, as death wasn't instant. Either way, Kinzo then simply locked the door from the outside.
    For Eva, he set the chain and was hiding inside the room while George was there.
    The rest, of course, were simple killings. No mysteries.
  • The lights went out at the same time.

    All doors facing the outside of the island are properly weather-sealed, so something like a rope would not fit under them.

    The corpses found in the kitchen were killed in the kitchen.
  • Same theory, but with an adjusted second twilight:
    When the lights went out, Rudolf and Kyrie knocked out the others and met in the kitchen. (either due to panic from the blackout or their own futile plans to stop the culprit.)

    There, they do get stabbed by Kinzo. He then uses the rope trick described before, except the ropes go through the gap in the other door. Which was an interior door, so it's not subject to the previous red.
    Of course, they need anchoring points on the door where they were found for that to work.
    One was simply the door's handle.
    The other was a piece of cloth taped to the door with lots of duct tape. Due to reduced friction on the ground by making it all slippery, this managed to hold. Of course, this was also attached to a separate rope so it could be retrieved with a strong pull after the fact.
  • Same theory, but with an adjusted second twilight:
    The culprit is Rosa. She was inside the kitchen while the others were trying to get in through the first door (inside). She escaped through the first door (inside). The object that was used to block the kitchen door (inside) was not blocking that door anymore, only appearing to be that way. So while the others used the second kitchen door (outside) she already got through the first door, and joined with them later.
  • The corpses inside the kitchen were placed against the outer door by someone who was inside the kitchen at the time.

    Rosa was with them when they were trying to open the interior door. Page 68.
  • Same theory, but with an adjusted second twilight:

    The culprit is Kanon. He was inside the kitchen while the others were trying to get in through the first door (inside). He escaped through the first door (inside). The object that was used to block the kitchen door (inside) was not blocking that door anymore, only appearing to be that way. So while the others used the second kitchen door (outside) he already got through the first door, and joined with them later.
  • At the time Gohda was attempting to get in the interior door, no living humans were in the kitchen (nor the freezer, just to be clear).
  • Same Kinzo theory.
    Same simple rope trick as before, but pulling the kitchen table towards the interior door instead. The door gap has only been confirmed airtight for the exterior door. Table was made lighter by taking out all the tableware so it could be pulled. Checks out decently enough.
  • Kinzo is dead by the end of the Fourth Twilight. Kinzo is not the culprit.
  • The culprit is Jessica.

    1st twilight: She used Gohda's master key, or she used Shannon's master key and then "found" it on her body.

    2nd twilight: While seemingly grieving in her room, Jessica slipped out and ambushed Rudolf and Kyrie, who were trying to do their own thing there. Then, as before, she used a rope trick to pull the table towards the door.

    She then slipped out of the guesthouse from the servants' room to kill Eva/Hideyoshi/Gohda. Gohda was straightforward. For Eva, she threatened her at gunpoint to set the chain and then stabbed her stomach through the gap. Then she pulled on some previously attached wire that pulled her into the closet. There's bound to be a knot that makes that work. HIdeyoshi was done similarly, just without the wire.
    After that, she returned to the guest house. The rest is mere fantasy, so anything could have happened in the end to cause the remaining deaths.
  • The culprit was in the room with Eva when she died.

    The culprit was in the room with Hideyoshi when he died.
  • Just before the clock struck midnight, only one person was alive on the island.
  • Same theory with Jessica as the culprit for the first twilights, adjusted ending:
    Eva: She chained and locked the door. However, Jessica used a master key to unlock the door, and then a monkey wrench to remove it from its hinges. She then entered, killed Eva, and put the door back in place from the inside, finally locking it again, all while the chain remained set.
    Hideyoshi: There's a secret passage from the mirror in Kinzo's study into the VIP room, which Jessica used to enter and set up this murder.
  • No doors were taken off their hinges at any point.

    There is no secret passage connected to the VIP room.
  • Same theory, but for Eva and Hideyoshi the wrench was simply used to set the chain from outside.
  • The chain lock on Eva's door was set by hand.

    Although it was dark, there was a group outside Jessica's door during the blackout. She could not have snuck out through the door.
  • The item used to finalize Hideyoshi's room was used to finalize the kitchen as well.
