''Tales of Symphonia'' is a 2003 video game, the fifth game in Namco's famous ''VideoGame/TalesSeries''. It is the third to ever be released outside of Japan and the first in Europe. It stands as the top-selling game in the entire series, and was for a nearly a decade one of the few to break a million copies sold due to extensive worldwide sales - and thus was ''the'' best-seller internationally, natch, before ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/12/11/bandai-namco-say-theyre-paying-attention-fans/ finally dethroned it]], at least in terms of single system sales. To date, Tales of Symphonia is still the best selling Tales game all platforms considered.

** Colette and Zelos. They are both TheChosenOne for their respective worlds but their personalities are extremely different, with Colette being a sweet, selfless girl who tries to befriend even her enemies and Zelos being a crass, selfish, cynical womanizer. However, paying close attention to their scenes and backstories show that [[spoiler: they are both extreme StepfordSmiler's]] as a result of their status. Additionally, there is implication that Colette could have potentially ended up with a personality more closer in line with Zelos's had it not been for Lloyd and Genis: [[spoiler: A side event in the game has Zelos revealing that he's bitter because of how many people act fake around him and try to suck up to him because he's the Chosen. In the manga, there's a side story showing that when Colette was young she also had negative feelings about how she was treated 'just because she was the Chosen'. The big difference was Colette had friends who she knew truly cared about her, and Zelos had basically no one.]]

* {{Tsundere}}: Every female elf is apparently a Type A. If Zelos speaks to them with his Personal Ex Skill equipped, they all give rather scathing responses about how much trouble humans like Zelos cause, then give him an item just like every other woman Zelos talks to.



** The [[UpdatedRerelease PS2 version ]] gives the player even more of these. Raine and Regal's Mystic Artes require Overlimit, as does one of Zelos'. Kratos' Mystic Arte requires his HP to be lower than 16%. One of Zelos' Mystic Artes requires him to have [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs less that 16% of his HP]] ''[[BreadEggsBreadedEggs and]]'' [[BreadEggsBreadedEggs be in Overlimit]]. The crowner goes to Presea, whose second Mystic Arte requires her to have less than 10% of her HP remaining, be in Overlimit, ''and'' activate a compound EX Skill to further boost her attack power, while the rest of the party is KO'd.
