* While some people who saw the game in Japanese (and weren't native speakers) didn't catch it, the casting is FridgeBrilliance too. Why do [[spoiler: Ion, Sync, and Florian have the same voice actor? And Luke & Asch? Cause they're clones.]] This makes a case of TalkingToHimself less of a Trivia entry and more of an actual invoked trope.
** While [[spoiler: Luke and Asch]] is obvious from the sound of their voice, [[spoiler: Sync and Ion]]'s is less obvious cause of how radically different they sound. But one with a clever ear can make the connection.
** Before some people learned of the twist, a common theory was [[spoiler: Luke and Asch were actually ''twins'' and one of them was raised in secret]]. This actually made a lot of sense if one used only the information available at the time.

* As the Awesome page notes, Tear ''almost'' was successful at taking down Van, which would have ended the game there and then. Except...what would happen if she did? [[spoiler: Most likely the Score would ultimately continue as normal as, without Van, the God-Generals wouldn't be in any way organized and would quickly be at least removed from the Order. Luke would have been sent to Akzeriuth. Jade most likely would be ''dead''. And Auldrant would end.]] In other words, Luke jumping up and stopping her is a '''very''' good thing.

*** It also could be because Lorelei was panicking; saying Luke's name was easy but not [[spoiler: Vandesdelca]], especially considering the circumstances.

* Compared to most SquishyWizard characters in most VideoGame/TalesSeries games, Jade is one of the few that has very few Novice level spells. In fact, after he gets hit by the fon slot seal, he's pretty much ''useless'' until you level him up enough. The brilliance comes in the fact he's a ChildProdigy; as that, Jade had no trouble using advanced level fonic artes and it shows in his arte list there. He only has two novice level fonic artes because he had no need to learn more than those two before he could switch to the higher and more ''interesting'' spells.

* Luke and Van's relationship is ''very'' disturbing when you realize [[spoiler: not only is Van lying and ultimately sees Luke as a thing, some of his tactics used to make Luke dependant on him are ''very'' similar to what sexual predators use on their victims.]] Take into account TheReveal, the fact Van knew all along, and suddenly there is a very disturbing ''[[RapeAsDrama thing]]'' one could add to the plot without changing anything...

* If you look at the [[http://www.animelyrics.com/game/talesoftheabyss/karma.htm lyrics]] of the AnimeThemeSong Karma, it's very obvious that the song is from Luke or Asch's POV (but most likely both). It seems to be talking about their relationship [[spoiler: with Luke and Asch as replica and original]] and how they can't seem to exist in the world together, in the same spot. Except then it ends [[spoiler: saying they are together in the same spot, describing not only how they managed at the very end to truly acknowledge each other, but if you choose to take the lyrics as solving the GainaxEnding, that the man who comes back in the post credits scene is ''both'' of them.]]

* Though there are other replicas [[spoiler: like Ion]] only Luke seems to be able to alter events and push for change in the world despite repeated comments on how all replicas are not bound by the Score due to their nature. Why Luke though? Well it might have to do with him being the Scion of Lorelei [[spoiler: that is, he ''is'' Lorelei, just not the Lorelei who made the Score. Who else would have the power to take down the Score and force the world into another future than Lorelei himself!]]

** It's kind of hard to say that they were TrueCompanions since all of them were keeping secrets from one another, something that Luke repeatedly stating, yet they still kept him in the dark. Which is partly why Luke was so frustrated by his 'friends' by the time they reached Akzeriuth. Add to the fact that Luke is mentally seven, was trapped in his own mansion his entire life while being told that he lost all his memories, and was forced to act like a teenager despite still having the mind of a child, it's little wonder he acted the way he did. At least Guy owned up that Luke was the way he was because of the way they raised him, taking partial responsibility for the tragedy of Akzeriuth. In fact, most of the party began treated Luke a little better, outside of Jade and Anise, once they realized they he was basically a child, even Jade and Anise has some justification. In Jade's case, he was disappointed that Luke refused to take ''any'' responsibility for what happened and Anise because she was projecting her own issues of being a traitor.
