* ThirdPersonPerson: Meredy. At first, it appears to be a fluke of the [[TranslatorMicrobes Orz Earring]] translation, but this along with a bit of HulkSpeak persists throughout the entire game, even after you visit her land and speak to hundreds of her kind who lack these speech quirks.

Just so you know, this has nothing to do with ''Franchise/MastersOfTheUniverse''. In the US, it was called ''Tales Of Destiny II'' because Creator/{{Mattel}} held the rights to the word "Eternia" at the time. Confusion ensued when an ''actual'' sequel to ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny'' came out in Japan and was called ''Tales of Destiny 2''. As a result, common convention is to use the original name of the game when discussing it (like with this page), despite the fact that it will probably never be called ''Eternia'' here due to Mattel continuing to renew the various ''He-man'' rights.

** 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.

Tales of Eternia is a Japanese {{PlayStation}} action role-playing video game released by Namco in 2000, and later ported to PlaystationPortable in 2005. Eternia is a 2D anime-style RPG with an original real-time battle system taken from its predecessors, ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny''. In addition, this game actually introduced many features that are still in use in many TalesSeries games today.

** Actually, the general idea of Inferia and Celestia (essentially, light and dark) coming together is notable through the whole game; the team is exactly half Inferian and Celestian, provided you pick up Max and Chat, [[spoiler:Meredy is technically a half breed, but considers herself Celestian,]] the number of Craymels you obtain is evenly split between the two worlds in number, [[spoiler:And the Inferian and Celestian technology together pierces the shield over Shizel's castle.]]

** 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).

* DeconstructedTrope: As one might expect of a ''Tales'' game. This was actually the first game in the series to really cut loose with some heavy, stinging deconstructions of common tropes in [[EasternRPG the genre]], however. This includes:
** Asking the question, "what kind of person ''would'' effortlessly get involved in a quest to save the world, and stay cheerful and upbeat throughout, without hesitation?" [[spoiler:The answer is "someone who actually isn't very emotionally healthy themselves and is probably trying to avoid their problems", and this person then gets the full extent of their motivations examined at length.]]
** A world of light and a world of darkness! One must be good, one must be evil, and they must be opposed, right? [[spoiler:It actually turns out that the residents of either world aren't that different at all, and both societies have their virtues and (deep) flaws. Trying to make a moral judgment just based on where they live is ridiculous.]]

* LethalJokeCharacter: Chat. She's pathetically weak unless you do a bunch of sidequests and exploring, but once you do she has a very good stun rate with her weird artes and Eternal Throw can easily stun lock bosses.



* LimitBreak: [[spoiler:The aforementioned Aurora Skills, the mage's extended Indignation, Chat's Eternal Hammer, and Max's Elemental Master... wow, plenty.]]

* KatanasAreJustBetter: The ninja sword (found in a pirate storehouse!) is one of the best swords in the game, with highly balanced stats and good damage output.
