* PowerOfTrust: Lloyd telling Zelos he trusts him makes the difference between [[spoiler:Zelos being a FakeDefector who helps the party escape the Tower of Salvation's death traps and obtains the final item they need for the Eternal Ring, or truly defecting in the hopes of dying and escaping his destiny.]] Leads to UndyingLoyalty in the second game: Zelos has absolute faith in Lloyd's innocence when the latter is accused of leading the Blood Purge in Palmacosta. Compare that to the other party members who, at best, are searching for Lloyd to find out the truth (Colette); or, at worst, suspect Lloyd may have pulled a FaceHeelTurn and become a WellIntentionedExtremist like Yggdrasil (Raine). [[spoiler: Turns out Zelos was right all along, and will even unmask the doppelganger responsible [[ButThouMust if the player fails to do so.]]]]

* FantasticRacism: First a victim, then a perpetrator. The party comment on how he might have been a victim, but, as Zelos says, "it doesn't even come close to justifying all the things [he's] done."

A 17-year-old human who was raised by a dwarf, Lloyd leaves his home town of Iselia to follow his childhood friend Colette on her World Regeneration Travel after having been [[YouCantGoHomeAgain banished]] from the village, where he's held responsible for [[DoomedHometown the attack]] they suffered from the Desians. At the beginning of the game, Lloyd is a typical [[WideEyedIdealist overly idealistic]] IdiotHero, but he grows upon [[ThisIsReality discovering the world as it is]], making his idealism into a goal to save both worlds and everyone living inside it.

* AllLovingHero: Not at first, but after CharacterDevelopment, he tries to save everyone, in both worlds, and even feels sympathy for the villains
* AmbiguouslyHuman: It's referenced a couple of times, since his father is a dwarf, though Lloyd is quick to point out that he's adopted. His ''real'' father [[spoiler: Kratos is an angel, and his Exsphere is a Cruxis Crystal. Consider that he gets angel wings at the end of the game]].
* AnimalMotifs: Falcons, [[DownplayedTrope kinda]], and birds in general. Rising Falcon is his only arcane arte that isn't a fusion or derivative of his earlier artes, and his Mystic Arte is titled Falcon's Crest. Also, [[spoiler:the angel wings he gets in the end are reminiscent of actual bird's wings, unlike those of Colette, Zelos, and the Four Seraphim]].

* BerserkButton: He has a couple, due to his HotBlooded nature. First and foremost, don't badmouth his mother. He also ''really'' hates the Desians, due in no small part to their role in his mother's death. He also can't stand cowardice and hypocrisy. What may be his biggest one, however, is people who "spew" the word "justice".

* EmpoweredBadassNormal: Without his exsphere, he's still the strongest in his village. With the exsphere, he's close to superhuman.
* EveryoneHasStandards: "Dwarven Vow #7: Goodness and Love will always win." He's a WideEyedIdealist and even he thinks it's corny. And even he gets irritated with Colette's ditziness on occasion, especially early in the game when he's largely in the dark about exactly what it entails.

* HotForTeacher: Lloyd admits that Raine was his first crush, and he was even a part of her fan club. They can be paired up.

* ShadowArchetype: To Colette. The title of Chosen means that neither of the two value their lives as much as they should, and they both become StepfordSmilers as a result. While Collette has a huge martyr complex that makes her accept unnecessary suffering for the sake of others, Zelos tries his best to avoid his responsibilities as the Chosen and squeeze as much superficial pleasure from life as possible. His relationship with Sheena is also the polar opposite of Colette's with Lloyd.

* MayDecemberRomance: Subverted. The game was very, ''very'' vague on the age difference between himself and Alicia; leading most fans to conclude this, especially as Alicia is very young-looking with a chubby face. The animated adaptation cleared up the whole matter up. The page for this trope has the full details but the long and the short is that Regal was seventeen and Alicia somewhere in her mid-teens but having Alicia characterized with a faux-child voice and Regal played by the deep-voiced, ultra-manly AkioOhtsuka lead back to this trope.

* {{Foil}}: To Colette, in some ways. Both are idealistic women doing questionable things (to themselves or others) to save their world. They're both kind of clumsy. And, not coincidentally, they're the most popular love interests.

* ConsummateLiar: Even if she means no ill does she lie a lot. [[spoiler:About being alright, about her condition, about her problems, etc. Unlike Zelos who's kinda [[BreakingTheFourthWall upfront]] about it does she also lie to the audience and even]] herself.



* ConsummateLiar: Another trait he shares with Colette. He often uses it for his own gain unlike her and is more cynical about it. [[spoiler:But unlike her does he dare to talk about his deeper issues with the [[BreakingTheFourthWall player]] and Genis of all people]].
