How much do you love the world of tmb?

I personally love everything about how dark and creepy twisted metal black is.
I wish we would have gotten to know more about midtown. How sweet tooth became a killer and who was his first victim. And what he thought about his little brother and father. Since he never mentions them. I also wish that  the hidden characters had full story’s instead used concept art for their cutscenes. I have so many questions.

Oh and I know yellow jacket was meant to be a shocker instead of having sweet tooth spoiling it.

Yeah, it is kind of odd that the extra characters had shorter movies.

I love the TMB universe but it's a shame TMB2:Harbor City was cancelled, I would have like to seen how the story continued.

TMB leaves the audience not knowing whether Minion/Marcus Kane was telling the truth about that darker reality not being real and all in Sweet Tooth's head, and how the TMB universe (characters/stories/setting) is representative of the reality Sweet Tooth is experiencing around  the events of original PS1 games.
Minion's story is similar to Roadkill's ambiguous ending in TM2 World Tour, because you can't prove/disprove the "fake reality" exists. Maybe Marcus is just delusional and crazy.

Once you apply Minion's theory on the world of Midtown you can take a psychological look at the story and see that Needles' little brother represents a younger version of himself. Notice he has no name? He's just "son". Charlie Kane as you know was Needles' father from the first game, and in the original story Charlie had not seen his son Needles in 20 years. In Needles' mind his father was dead to him, so it makes sense in TMB that his father is literally dead to him. Maybe Charlie's "son" has no name in Needles' mind because Charlie's son is named  Needles instead of the assumed Charlie Junior... and in reality Needles has no little brother. He could be disassociating his good child self of the past from his current bad self in reality - thus not assigning his inner child a name in TMB-land. The two siblings never even met in the TMB universe which enforces the theory. As they have never met it explains why SweetTooth's story has no reference to his little brother at all, because he doesn't even know him. His little brother knows about him because he's an infamous serial killer. That scares him about his older brother but he feels a "connection" to him. That might imply that Needles, in reality, had murderous impulses even as a child even before it became an addiction.

Continuing Minion's theory, "Blackfield Asylum" could represent the mental hospital Needles Kane was sent to, that he escaped in TM1, in Los Angeles, California - represented as Midtown in Needles' mind, a darker version of the city. In TM1 he seeks a paper bag he claims to be his friend, but it's all just an excuse to kill people. In TMB he seeks a cure for Preacher's curse, but at the end opts out and prioritizes killing. There is a parallel there - it's obvious that Needles' best friend in life is not a paper bag or peace of mind, but murder.

Another thing to note about Yellow Jacket is that Charlie Kane has a different attitude of SweetTooth in TMB than TM1 and TM2. In the original story Charlie Kane entered the contest seeking his long lost son. He was ignorant of what became of Needles (maybe Needles wasn't so infamous in real life?), and in the process of tracking him down, he killed him in the contest. He re-enters the contest the next year in Dark Tooth, a vehicle seemingly in tribute to his son, seeking revenge against the player for killing Sweet Tooth - even though Charlie killed his son - perhaps a sign of denial and dementia - and blind to the fact that Sweet Tooth had been revived, at least in some sort of demonic looking form.
Reversely in TM Black Charlie Kane does not seek his older son while he is alive like he did in TM1, and tells his younger son not to even speak of him - which shows Charlie has essentially disowned Needles in TMB. in tm2 DarkTooth wanted his "little clown boy back", whereas Charlie in TMB didn't... but because of Calypso Charlie's son shared a similar fate as the Charlie who became DarkTooth. DarkTooth followed SweetTooth's steps through Calypso's manipulation just as SweetTooth's brother was fated to follow SweetTooth's steps through Calypso's manipulation.

Anyway, just a bunch of thoughts I had on the world of TMB and the Kane family
