Finally, the battle comes down to a duel between Asura and the Ratio general, "[[{{Shinigami}} Reaper]]" Hypnos. Asura uses his trusty blade, the [[TalkingWeapon intelligent]] Holy Sword Durandal, to slay his opponent, and with his last breath Hypnos swears to evaluate the results of Asura's campaign [[{{Reincarnation}} in another life]].

* OfficialCouple: [[{{Tsundere}} Iria]] is the heroine and she and Luca [[ReincarnationRomance were lovers in their past lives]], so she's who Luca is "supposed to" pair off with (and is the easiest to raise friendship with). However, since Luca's RelationshipValues affect the plot (not significantly, but they do), you can opt to instead pair him off with [[CuteBruiser Hermana]], [[LadyOfWar Ange]] or [[AdventurerArchaeologist QQ]]. Or even [[HoYay Spada, Ricardo, or Kongwai]].

* CompressedAdaptation: The manga leaves out significant portion of the story, especially the parts involving the events of Asura's era.

to:

* CompressedAdaptation: BigDamnHeroes: Several counts, surprisingly.
** First, when Spada and his friends raiding the Avatar research facility Luca and Iria are locked in. [[spoiler:This sadly gets botched when Mathias kills most of the hostages just so the main trio will awaken their memories, however.]]
** Later, Ricardo saving Luca from Avatar-possessed Garam soldiers, regardless of [[IWasJustPassingThrough his actual objective.
** Luca saving Iria and Spada from the Gigantess.
** Again with Luca, when he delivers Spada's weapons just in time during the battle against Hasta.

[[folder:Tropes for the Manga]]
* AdaptationalBadass: In the game, Luca is a badass [[CrouchingMoronHiddenBadass in his]] [[CowardlyLion own way]], but the manga amps this to the point of him stopping a sword ''by letting it through his hand'', not to mention his MadeOfIron trait taken even further.
* CompressedAdaptation: The manga leaves out significant portion of the story, especially the parts involving the events of Asura's era. In addition, the party now merely consists the main trio and the rest (Ange, Hermana, and Ricardo) doesn't join in until very late, and most of their backstories are not mentioned at all.
* DarkerAndEdgier: Despite being much shorter, the manga doesn't joke around at all. For starters, the viewers are given a glance of how ''horrible'' the treatment to the Avatars are, and the villains (barring Chitose) are depicted in much less sympathetic way, such as Mathias [[spoiler:mercilessly killing the hostage Avatars as well as ''her own followers'', and Hasta's [[OffWithHisHead brutal]] way of killing the higher-ups of Arca.]]
* GoodIsNotSoft: Luca loses his hesitation to fight much earlier due to his wish to protect Iria and his friends, but it doesn't mean he always goes head-first for violence, as shown with [[spoiler:the remaining of Gardel/Thanatos' spirit and even Mathias.]]
* KnowledgeBroker: Hermana, who also doubles as MiserAdvisor this time.
* LaResistance: Spada leads one against the military, with their mission is to rescue the hostage Avatars.
* NiceHat: Sadly, Spada loses his trademark hat during said Avatar jailbreak.
* MamaBear / ParentalSubstitute: The orphanage that Hermana runs in the game? It is now taken care of by Ange. In fact, this is pretty much the reason she destroys the Naos Church, so the orphanage remain hidden.
* TookALevelInKindness: Iria doesn't bully Luca at all, and it helps that Luca is much less timid than his game counterpart.

This is mostly useful for playing on a NewGamePlus, however, as leveling a style to 45 generally takes a full playthrough of concentrating entirely on Luca, ''R'' adds another one ''early in the game'', after Spada/Durandal finds out that style.
Luca is the reincarnation of Asura. The moment is humorously [[MomentKiller killed]] by Iria.
* MeaningfulName: A lot. To start, everyone in the party (at least, from the original version) qualifies.

Spada. ''R'' lampshades this by giving a title that allows him to appear without his hat...and a related victory quote.
--> '''Spada:''' Hey, doesn't it feel like something is off?
--> '''Kongwai:''' Let's see...your hat isn't there.

* OfficialCouple: [[{{Tsundere}} Iria]] is the heroine and she and Luca [[ReincarnationRomance were lovers in their past lives]], so she's who Luca is "supposed to" pair off with (and is the easiest to raise friendship with). However, since Luca's RelationshipValues affect the plot (not significantly, but they do), you can opt to instead pair him off with [[CuteBruiser Hermana]] or [[LadyOfWar Ange]]. Or even [[HoYay Spada or Ricardo]].

to:

* ReincarnationRomance: And ''how''. Interesting to note is [[spoiler:the fact that said romance is botched since half of the couple (Inanna) literally backstabbed the other half (Asura), thus ending their tale in tragedy. Luca and his friends decided not to have their past control them, however, so it's still all good.]]



* SavingTheWorld - A given, but rather than winning fame and adoration, the heroes stay pretty anonymous. They don't consult world leaders, they don't lead military battalions, they just do their hero jobs completely under the radar of everybody but the BigBad. This is commented on at the end. "We changed the world, and nobody will ever know it was us." They then all go on to [[NormalPeople lead fairly normal lives]].
* ScareChord - A well-placed one hits at various moments, like when an Avatar transforms into a Ratio.
* SheIsNotMyGirlfriend - Luca points out to Ricardo at one point that his statements about Ange are very romantic [[DefiedTrope when they're taken out of context]].
* ShipperOnDeck: Everybody knows about Luca and Iria, but Spada is the one that supports them the most (altough how much of it is support and how much of it is tease is arguable).
* ShoutOut: Surprisingly western ones, mostly with minor [=NPCs=]. For example, there is an old man (who is a bit of a poet) who tells the party about Chien's backstory. His name is [[EdgarAllanPoe Edguar Allen Pwo]].

* SpellMyNameWithAnS: Absolute Zero's translation follows official localizations' footsteps - that includes re-romanizing some names to their probable original intent (Namco has a reputation for choosing foreign-sounding names that are actually pretty gibberish-y). Therefore, some differences between the translation and the "official" romanizations - Ruca/Luca, Asras/Asura, Sian/Chien, Matias/Mathias, Latio/Ratio etc. While Ruca/Luca tends to get some flame, the other "changes" (note quotations) are generally agreed to be for the better.

* StickyFingers: ''Ange'', of all people, at least in terms of gameplay. Iria and Hermana will call her out on this the first time she uses her Thievery skill.
* StuffedIntoTheFridge: Let's just say Ricardo (and by extension, the entire party) is '''not''' happy when Oswald uses [[spoiler:Gardel]]'s corpse to empower the Gigantess Omega.
* TakeYourTime: Oh yes. Especially whenever Ricardo tells you the boat is leaving in a few minutes. Certain skits (like a few for doing X guild missions) have your party [[LampshadeHanging tell you off for ignoring the main quest]].
* TranquilFury: Ange usually descends into this when her BerserkButton is pushed. Most notably toward Hermana in Kelm Volcano.

** In ''R'', [[DudeLooksLikeALady Kongwai]] is a subtler example of this. Men who hit on him always end up not appearing until the end of the scene after he takes them off-screen. The key is that Kongwai does not seem ticked in the slightest beforehand.



* UnlikelyHero: All 6 playable characters embody this trope pretty well. The only connection any of them have to the evil plot du jor is their past lives, which they start to distance themselves from as the story goes on and they deicde that they'd rather define themselves by who they are now than who they once were. They manage to fly under the radar of all the villains but the BigBad (they're noticed but never really singled out, except by [[BigBad Matthias]]), they're quite happy to have saved the world completely anonymously, and after the end they go their separate ways and go back to their normal lives.

* BonusDungeon: Restricted Guild Dungeon.
* BreakingTheFourthWall: Ignoring Coda's tutorial skits in the beginning of the game, Tales of Innocence takes itself seriously enough to not break the wall. So it comes as a bit of a surprise when Ricardo (of all people) does it in a certain skit. Luca and Iria are commenting on how much stronger they've become ever since their adventure began, leading Ricardo to scold them for being too cocky. He then proceeds to say that Luca and Iria can still become stronger, and cannot let overconfidence stop them from doing so. Luca then asks if he really means it. His answer? Of course he means it; the game's maximum character level is 250.
** And he does that ''again'' in the skit "Ricard, Hermana and I"[[note]]Raise all three's friendships to 500.[[/note]] What do they talk about? [[spoiler:Starting with the fact that it's one of the most difficult skits to gain, and now that the skit is unlocked, it's mostly pointless, and the player has accomplished nothing.]] The whole skit is undoubtedly a [=CMoF=].
* CompetitiveBalance: Through a brilliant design decision, all members can be assigned to various combat Styles as desired, which affects the stats through various multipliers.
** Advance Style: ''Purely'' [[GlassCannon offense oriented]]. Unlocks abilities which allow powerful and relentless attack chains, such as Combo Plus and Critical Focus.
** Wisdom Style: [[SquishyWizard For the spellcasters]]. Learns skills associated with spells and TP, such as TP Up and Fast Magic.
** Guardian Style: Focuses on HP, DEF and M.DEF; in short, [[StoneWall taking a lot of hits]]. Shapes the user into a wall with its Status-guard and defensive abilities such as Lure and Blow Resistor.
** Technical Style: Very much [[FragileSpeedster speed oriented, but not very defensive]]. Specializes solely on maneuverability in the battlefield, and some item-related skills. Learns skills such as Dash and Backstep.
** Versus Style: For those looking for [[SelfImposedChallenge an ungodly challenge]]. Not only does it grant ''no'' stat bonuses, its abilities focuses ''strictly'' on crippling the user. It unlocks skills such as Handicap 4, which gives an extra 25% EXP for ''90%'' reduction in stats.
*** However, [[MagikarpPower after leveling it up enough]], it unlocks abilities which gives bonuses for Gald, EXP or just stat. Nothing gamebreaking, but still worth the effort to an extent.
** Innocent Style[[note]]Obtained by getting three of one character's styles to level 15 or higher after recruiting Hermana, resting at an inn triggers a scene and unlocks Innocent Style; and it has to be done for each character separately.[[/note]]: Like Versus, grants no stat bonuses whatsoever, but unlocks abilities related to [[LimitBreak Awakening Mode]], as well as unlocking each character's [[SuperMovePortraitAttack Hi-Ougi/Mystic Artes]].
* DiscOneNuke: Guild Dungeons' chests give randomly generated loot. However, some of the items in the tables are very, very good. Therefore, it is possible, in a rank 2 dungeon, to obtain a "Mythril" Sword with 110 attack and a casting speed bonus at a time where the normal swords you can buy in shops and/or loot in dungeons have maybe 18 attack.
* DrivenToSuicide: [[spoiler:Chitose]] after the final boss fight.
* EscortMission: They hardly offer any Grade, Gald, or Guild Points! Who in their right mind would-- you mean all I have to do is escort them to the ''entrance''? And [[SubvertedTrope I don't actually have to defend them]] on the way there? And you're going to ''pay me'' for this?
* FetchQuest: Some of your Guild missions.
* HandicappedBadass: Gameplaywise, the Versus Style is ''literally'' made for this; ([[MagikarpPower almost]]) all of its unlockable abilities are made to utterly cripple the characters' stats. Since there aren't a lot of bonuses to gain, it's probably meant to be used as a challenge. A real, ''hardcore'' challenge.
* HeKnowsAboutTimedHits: At the beginning from Coda.
** Lampshaded by Iria. "Once was enough, you cocky tutorial rat!"
* IdiotBall: Luca holds one after [[spoiler:the first battle with Hasta. Yes kid, the crazed psychopath who is about to be offed wants to whisper something in your ear; of COURSE it's a good idea to get closer to him. Surely he's not going to stab you and run away. That'd be just crazy... [[AxCrazy OH WAIT]].]]
* JumpCut: In the edit of "Follow the Nightingale" that plays during the game's intro, about 55 seconds in.
* MagikarpPower: As mentioned above, the Versus style provides no bonuses and all its abilities cripple your stats, effectively making it a SelfImposedChallenge difficulty level...until you level it up to level 45 or so, at which point you get large boosts to stats and post-battle rewards. This is mostly useful for playing on a NewGamePlus, however, as leveling a style to 45 generally takes a full playthrough of concentrating entirely on that style.
* OminousLatinChanting: Subverted in the opening "follow the nightingale" by Kokia. It's actually [[CypherLanguage backwards Japanese]].
** Maintained in the fan translation- the English subtitles for the backwards Japanese parts are written backwards.

[[folder:Tropes for ''R'' Version]]
* AndYourRewardIsClothes: Per Tales series' tradition, various costumes are available as both in-game and DLC items.
* AnimeThemeSong: "New Day, New Life", again sung by Kokia.
* AnotherDimension: Two of the new dungeons in ''R'' are this, complete with OminousFog surrounding the affected areas.
* BashBrothers: Luca and Spada are apparently upgraded into this, with some of their victory poses have them cross their swords in the air.
* BonusDungeon: The Triverse Gate, unlocked in NewGamePlus.
* BunnyEarsLawyer: Ange's quirky nature is cranked UpToEleven in this version.
** NotSoAboveItAll: As a result.
* [[spoiler:ButNowIMustGo: QQ and Kongwai don't even say goodbye to the party before returning to their respective worlds in the ending.]]
* ButtMonkey: Although much less than Luca, Spada now has his moments.
** He has plenty of ruined attempts [[BadassBoast to look cool]] in victory poses, usually courtesy of Iria (and Luca, at times). Also, one victory pose has Iria mocks him for making Luca worried about him[[note]]Have Spada finish a battle with low HP[[/note]].
** He is the only one whose name QQ doesn't remember. She calls her "weird guy" instead, even after she officially accepted him as her friend ([[CuddleBug by hugging him]]).
* DeclarationOfProtection and {{Protectorate}}: Again, Spada and Luca. Although the trope exists in the original, ''R'' takes this even further to the point Spada's DeclarationOfProtection becomes ''one of his victory quotes''.
* DiscretionShot: PlayedForLaughs with whoever manages to push Kongwai's button. We will never know whatever he does to them, and at one point he smiled cheerfully upon being asked what happened (offscreen), the party found it unsettling to the point they chose not to pursue the matter further.
* DudeLooksLikeALady:
** Kongwai, saved by the virtue of his obviously-male voice. Just don't say that to his face, as some poor [=NPCs=] find out in hard(?) way.
** Luca also apparently also fits this, to the point one of the his unlockable costumes in the second run is a ''MagicalGirl'' costume.
* GratuitousEnglish: Hasta now spouts quite a bit of this. Also, NPC Edguar (the old man in Galpos Jungle), to the point half of the party consider him a freak due to how gibberish-sounding his lines become.
* IfICantHaveYou / {{Yandere}}: Chitose now plays this trope straight, to the point she becomes a boss ''twice'' (contrasting the original, where she is fought only once and barely mentioned again). And the prelude to the second fight? [[spoiler:Have Luca and co taken hostage in a warship she leads (which doesn't last long thanks to [[SuperStrength QQ]]), and when Luca refuses to come with her anyway, she sets said ship ablaze while everyone (the Arcan soldiers ''under her command'' included) is still abroad, stating that if Luca/Asura refuses to acknowledge her, then she may as well take him and his friends down.]] Damn...
* IntercontinuityCrossover: [[spoiler:Kongwai and QQ are hinted to come from the world of VideoGame/TalesOfTheTempest or VideoGame/TalesOfHearts.]]
* ISurrenderSuckers: Instead of having his victim picking up IdiotBall like in the original, this is how Hasta [[spoiler:stabbed Luca]] in this version. To elaborate: [[spoiler:he rambles per usual, but this time, he also throws his spear away before proceeding to pick Luca's attention...which doesn't succeed due to Spada's warning. It is all a diversion, however - while the party is distracted with his ramblings, Hasta picks his spear from behind and proceeds to stab Luca while still spouting nonsense.]]
* MoneyFetish: Iria apparently fits this trope now, if her Search Gald skill (and a victory quote of hers) to be believed. Of course, considering where she comes from, it may be justified.
* RunningGag: Ange's BerserkButton now becomes this, be it in skits or victory quotes.
* SlippySlideyIceWorld: Celestial Garden now has this, albeit not to the point of FrictionlessIce level.
* {{Stripperiffic}}:
** QQ wears a ChainmailBikini. This is hilariously lampshaded if you fight in Tenos region with the girls (minus Ange) and Ricardo in the party, where two of the victory quotes will have them complain about the cold.
** One of Iria's unlockable costume? Succubus/bat costume. She is NOT amused, to the point she threatens to shoot the man who gave her said costume.
