* ForWantOfANail: The whole plot kicks off because Raven gives Yuri the key to the prison, allowing him to sneak out to check on the Lower Quarter. Except that doesn't happen, since instead he has a run into Estelle who is desperate to wave a sword at a bunch of knights just so she can warn Flynn about something. This one event is where the whole plot springs from. If this hadn't happened [[spoiler: not only would the BigBad's plans go unhindered, but the EldritchAbomination that comes from that incident would have destroyed the world.]]

** A more minor example lies in Yuri and Estelle having to take the Quoi Woods route due to the Lord of the Plains blocking the normal route; they meet Karol thanks to that, which ties into them helping fix the barrier blastia of Halure.

* MegaCorp: The Guilds. However; they're actually a rather rare benign/benevolent portrayal of the trope. Most of the guilds are headed by nice people despite some moments where the guilds are on the antagonistic side. Despite Barbos, the [[WellIntentionedExtremist Hunting Blades at times]], and Yeager, the rest are pretty good. And even Yeager has his moments, but this is a VideoGame/TalesSeries game so you should have probably expected the latter two.

** Also played with any party member you fight during the course of the game - notably, there is a very small length of time between the one battle [[spoiler:Flynn is in your party]] and [[spoiler:his duel with Yuri]], and he's much stronger in the latter, [[spoiler:BrainwashedAndCrazy Estelle]] is able to take on the entire party, and the team battle mode in the [=PS3=] version's coliseum concludes with a fight against [[spoiler:the rest of your party]], who have been boosted in strength. Whew.

''Tales of Vesperia'' is the first HD game of the Franchise/TalesSeries. It was first released in 2008 as an "exclusive" for the {{UsefulNotes/Xbox360}}, which led to the system selling out... in ''Japan''. In April 2011, to address the rather low amount of physical copies of the game in circulation, it was released on the Xbox Live Marketplace as a Game on Demand for only $20.00. It later received an UpdatedRerelease for the [=PlayStation=] 3, which [[NoExportForYou never left Japan]].

** The [=PS3=] version adds two more Giganto Monsters, three fights against the Sword Dancer, [[spoiler:Clint]], and [[spoiler:the Spiral Draco]] which is level 200 and arguably the most difficult boss ever to appear in the Franchise/TalesSeries.

** In typical Franchise/TalesSeries fashion, though this time characters say different lines sometimes. For example, Yuri will only say one word sometimes when doing attacks. Yet he`s got pretty long lines during Mystic Artes.

** The boss fights in this game are, on average, a tad harder than other Franchise/TalesSeries games, at least when it comes to difficulty spikes. Zagi, for example, hits 60,000 HP when he's a Mid-game boss...whereas in other Franchise/TalesSeries games, 60,000 HP for a boss at ''that'' level is something you ''usually'' only find on the harder difficulties. (This is on ''standard'')

** The first of the Franchise/TalesSeries to offer it. A unique and surprising approach: it's in the form of buying giftboxes that contain item sets, skills, costumes, level-up bonuses, and gald - nothing you couldn't get ingame, just a quick way to obtain them for impatient people. Inevitably led to InternetBackdraft about people "paying to cheat."

* GenreSavvy: Yuri; he notes Estelle's princess status (even using the word "textbook"), comments on [[RunningGag how he's cursed]] when they keep running into trouble, and rarely, if ever, loses his cool because he tends to know what he's up against. May be a side-effect of being the oldest Franchise/TalesSeries protagonist so far-and the preference from staff.

* LegacyBossBattle: Previous ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' bosses are fightable. They include [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Phantasia's Dhaos]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Eternia's Shizel]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Destiny's Barbatos]], and [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Symphonia's Kratos]] are all opponents in the coliseum's 200-Man Melee

** The PopQuiz in Nam Cobanda tests your knowledge of the Franchise/TalesSeries. In a nice touch, the American and European releases removed questions on games that had not been released in their respective regions.

** Yeager [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny uses]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia extremely]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia subtle]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Title Drops]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss of previous]] Franchise/TalesSeries [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia games]]. Pay close attention to [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=np3fAs1MEHc the]] [[http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8dEFGWJE4AU conversations]] at the beginning of the two halves of the fight. It's taken directly from the Japanese version, where he pronounces the words ''in English'', so it's most likely done intentionally. Also to be noted is that he also throws in "[[VideoGame/TalesOfRebirth Rebirth]]" there, which the English dialogue skipped out on because [[NoExportForYou it was never localized]].

** The [=PS3=] version adds a ton of [[AndYourRewardIsClothes bonus cosplay outfits]]. Not only do Yuri, Flynn and Estelle get to cosplay from ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss'' as a pre-order bonus, but every party member gets a cosplay outfit (and associated skill) from a previous ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' character as a reward for completing the 200-Man Melee. If every party member puts on their cosplay outfit, there's even a skit where they start acting like their "characters" against their will.

* SpiritualSuccessor: Obviously it is the literal successor to all previous Franchise/TalesSeries games, but more specifically it is the third 'Team Symphonia' game, developed by the same staff and in much the same style as ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss''.

** TheChick: Estelle; While she offers plenty of information herself, she's the one who seems to "hire" the guild and give them focus, she's also the moral center of the group, as well as TheHealer.

Added DiffLines:

* FiveManBand: Despite Yuri being the main character, the Brave Vesperia guild fits the concept a little differently than expected:
** TheHero: Karol; while he starts off as the TagAlongKid, in the guild he's the leader, since Yuri admits Karol actually knows a lot more about how guilds work than he does.
** TheLancer: Yuri; the main hero actually comfortably becomes Karol's right-hand man as opposed to trying to be a figurehead for the guild.
** TheBigGuy: Judith; Graduated from being TheSixthRanger when he first joins the party, to being the muscle of the guild.
** TheSmartGuy: Rita; a skilled mage and Blastia expert, as well she seems more knowledgeable about the world in general.
** TheChick: Estelle; While she offers plenty of information herself, she's the one who seems to "hire" the guild and give them focus, she's also the moral center of the group, as well as TheHealer.
** TeamPet: Repede; pretty obvious, although he's an 'honorary member' of the guild, he's still a dog.
** TheSixthRanger: Raven; Not an actual member of the guild he already belongs to another guild, but his interests align with the guild's and he's happy to tag along and help them out.
