* KeepCirculatingTheTapes: In America. To date, the game has never been put up on any digital distribution service (even when some of its contemporaries have), and while Japan and, oddly, Europe got the PSP remake, North America never saw a release of it. Playing the game today requires either importing a European PSP release, paying what is likely an exorbitant amount of money (up to 250$) for the PS1 release, or less savory methods.

** Except to this date, even with Europe getting Eternia's UpdatedRerelease years later, there have been no translated skits, and the hint skits ''were'' translated, making it seem like TheyJustDidntCare.

** This was understandable due to how skits were first used. [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Destiny]] and Eternia had the skits fully voiced with no text; unlike [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Symphonia]], where they just had them silent, there was no way to translate them for the English version. Except to this date, even with Europe getting Eternia's UpdatedRerelease years later, there have been no translated skits.

* BadExportForYou: You're North American? Shame you'll never get any translated skits. What, half the plot and characterization depends on the skits? Too bad.

** Creator/MasashiEbara - Fog/Max
* ShoutOut: Lots and lots - Eternia's one of those games.
** Summon Destiny. It summons the main heroes of ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' to perform their {{Limit Break}}s on an enemy. The object itself is also Stahn's sword Dymlos.
** Other Namco characters, notably Klarth F. Lester from ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' and the Swordian Clemente from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'', give the [[PopQuiz Pop Quizzes]] in Mintche University.
** The list of "Missing Books" in said university - all weapons used by Klarth.
** Cless (and, optionally, Arche) in the arena. The reward for beating him is the [[InfinityPlusOneSword Eternal Sword]] and Cless' Headband.
** The Summon of Time. [[spoiler:Not at all Dhaos, the BigBad of ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'', right down to the attacks and battle music. There's even a special event if you finish him with Indignation.]]
*** Complete with a glorious CrowningMomentOfAwesome where Keele or Meredy will recite the Indignation incantation and hit Sekundes for 100,000 damage.
--->'''Keele/Meredy''': Heavens light, shine upon thee! Gates of Hell, open your passage! Strike, lightning of the Heavens! [[CallingYourAttacks Indignation!]]
** In preparation for Celsius' mountain, your characters have to buy winter wear, and you can have some of the characters try on weird things. One of them is the Thief costume, which you can have Farah try out - it's Rutee's getup from ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny''. Farah even references Rutee before rejecting the costume ([[{{Stripperiffic}} for obvious reasons, since you're climbing a mountain in a blizzard]]).
** Mint, the WhiteMagicianGirl in ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'', is the angel that revives your characters when you cast Resurrection. The background during the spell also show a close-up of her opening her eyes, straight from the animation of ''Phantasia'''s opening theme.
** In the same sense, Arche the SquishyWizard shows up in one of the spell animations to blast your enemies with meteors. There's also a way to temporarily turn either one of your mages into her UnexpectedSHMUPLevel incarnation from PS1 version of VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia, allowing them to fly around the screen and shoot the enemies with spells.
** You can get Stahn's trademark Deck Brush if you poke around your CoolShip.
** Speaking of non-Tales Of related cameos, an optional dungeon (which contains an essential part of the GlobalAirship ) sports Rick Taylor from {{Splatterhouse}}, the undead samurai from ''Genpei Toma Den'' and spirit world statues from ''Shadowland'', not to mention that one of the [[BonusBoss Bonus Bosses]] is the Valkyrie from ''The Legend of Valkyrie'' (her dungeon even has the same music from the first level of that game).
** The equipment shop in Barole has a genuine suit of [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Cless]]'s armor, cape and all, hanging on the side. It's easy to miss.
** The Water Craymel Lab has a shoutout to ''Phantasia'' that you can find once you get Keele in your party.
--->"If evil exists in the world, Craymels are at the heart of mankind."
** Reid's' true InfinityPlusOneSword, the Last Fencer, may or may not be named after one of the titles Cless can get in ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia''.
** One of the collectibles in this game are lens. Yes, [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny those lens]]. You can show your lens to one [[TheCameo Ilene Rembrandt]] for various rewards. Getting all 60 gives you the "Lens Hunter" title. "Lens Hunter" was Rutee's self-proclaimed job in the last game.
