    • Religion exists in every game of the Just Cause Game Series

      But it is almost never emphasized

      So I would say

      No

      There is no *obvious* "true" religion in the Just Cause Universe

      Same. I was confused with the moving statues. Because the first time i saw the "medici" page I saw somewhere in the religion section written that the angels' movements and underwater obelisks burning were "proof" that the ancient religion was "true".I don't think that it was true when i read it. so i'm kinda confused, so i need to make sure one more time. Do u think it was true because the statues were moving? or do u think it's up to the player since developers never mentioned it? (honsetly my last question) :)

    • The developers don't have to "mention" anything.

      The statues and the eternal fires that burn under water are obviously magic. They are also some kind of easter eggs, which can be interpreted as non-canon. Similarly the Churches in Medici could be said to be a true religion, because they control time.

      The facts are that they are obviously magical and there's no other magic in the Just Cause Universe, so if you choose to count them as canon (as opposed to mere Easter Eggs in Just Cause 3), then they represent the only true religion.

      So u believe them to be a true religion? just wanted to ask for ur opinion.

    • It's not up to the wiki to decide what is or is not canon. We're just here to report what we find. And so far those are the only indication of religion that has actual powers.

    • so do u mean it's pretty much up to the players?

    • I don't think there's a true religion in the just cause universe. The only true religion is Ricoism. Its rituals are blowing up gas tanks with guns, bavarium rpgs, lightning from the skies and using the grappling hook to create the best type of mayhem xD

    • I have no idea what you mean by true religion so i'll just assume that you are asking what the religion of each country in the JC universe is.

      San Esperito: Considering how Spanish the country itself sounds and seems to be it is probably mostly Christian since historically Spain brought Christianity to whatever place it colonized (And this universe that also includes San Esperito hence the massive Spanish influence.)

      Panau: Not sure, maybe local traditonal religions.

      Medici: Historically it would logically be local religions before getting converted to Roman religion (Which itself is pretty much just rebranded ancient greek religion.) during Romes' expansion because of the islands' proximity to Italy and would later become Christians after the collapse of Rome and the expansion of Christianity (Which would later lead to Spain becoming christian and converting San Esperito and Solis later on).

      Solis: Since from what we know so far it's a South American country it's pretty much the same as San Esperito.

    • Notice:

      San Esperito is CENTRAL America

      South America and Central America are VERY different

      It's still probably Christian.

    • The monasteries in JC3 are very obviously catholic.

        Loading editor
    • ...are you sure about that

      A church with a cross doesn't mean it's Catholic

        Loading editor
    • No but assuming Medici is located under western Europe instead of somewhere close to Peloponnese or near Greece in general then it's most likely catholic.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah, it makes sense to assume that those are catholic buildings, because that religion does dominate that region in reality. And Medici is suppose to be based on that culture and region.

      Oh and by "true religion": It referred to how the Medici article used to call one religion the true religion. "True" in the sense that all of religion is obviously a hoax and an insane cult, but the religion(s) of Ancient Medici possess magical powers, so they're true, as in based on truth and can provide evidence.

    • *supposed

      Yeah well as far as I'm concerned there is no religion said by name in the game so

      It can be any denomination or even non-denominational for all I care

        Loading editor
    • Well they do use a cross, so that limits it to either catholic, lutheran, english, ...and I guess that about covers the mainstream factions.

    • Wait a minute. So u mean these easter eggs are like part of the just cause lore? I thought the weeping angels and the unsolved underwater fires/obelisks were part of an easter egg. And easter eggs aren't usually part of lore in games or atleast most of 'em since they're likely made as hidden jokes. If that makes it a "true religion"  as in the non-hoax way, wouldn't the christian church speeding time also make it "real" in that sense? or maybe even thor's hammer which happens to be an easter egg?

        Loading editor
    • Well... yeah, it does get complicated. The churches speeding time could also be seen as what they are: Just helping the player while Rico sleeps. But the obelisks are... well what are they? They have eternal fires.

      I would count the obelisks as real, but the hammer as an easter egg, but that's just my opinion.

    • Also I would like to point out the priests from JC3 are literally invincible. I have shot a nuke at one of them, two nukes, five nukes. If it were up to me, I would probably trust the religion with invincible priests more.

    • Meh

    • The same way the race trigger guys and sidemission trigger guys in Just Cause are invincible. And when you blow them up (best result when your triggered, or timed explosive is right next to him at his feet) they might fly with a relatively high trajectory and end up up to 100 meters away. And the mission trigger is programmed into the person, so with 10 explosives, you could even move a mission trigger nearly a km away, if you're lucky. Unfortunately they respawn at their original spot if you go too far from them.

        Loading editor
    • And I forgot to mention, the main characters from Agency mission triggers are also invincible in JC1.

      This doesn't make them any sort of demigods, that's just how videogames work, so you wouldn't break the game if you accidentally run someone over, or something.

    • It could be a facet of the gameplay OR they could all be in some secret cult that gives them immortality.

        Loading editor
    • Well... we know that Spain was always a catholic-dominated nation and San Esperito was once their colony and that Salvador Mendoza was religious and had his sons funeral at an average church, which likely belonged to catholicism.

        Loading editor
    • Yeah... I'm going to go with the former

      Because immortality as a thing is impossible to create in the real world
