We present two novel derivations of the recently established (−)p factor in the charge quantization condition for p-brane dyon sources in spacetime dimension D=2p+2. The first requires consistency of the condition under the charge shifts produced by (generalized) θ-terms. The second traces the sign difference between adjoining dimensions to compactification effects.
