* IdiotHero: Luke. My God, Luke.

to:

* IdiotHero: Luke. My God, Luke. [[spoiler: This is [[JustifiedTrope Justified]], [[DeconstructedTrope Deconstructed]], and [[AvertedTrope Averted]] when you take into account the fact Luke is actually seven; he's an idiot because he really only has seven years worth of knowledge (and is expected to act 17 at minimum), this leads to a lot of grief (especially as everyone fails to properly account for his true age), and when one really considers all Luke does over the game, he's actually quite smart for his age.]]

Added DiffLines:

* YouAreBetterThanYouThinkYouAre: ''Everybody'' does this for Luke past a certain point, as after finding out [[spoiler: he's Asch's clone]] he develops a ''massive'' inferiority complex. Some instances are absolutely [[HeartwarmingMoments heartwarming]], including when Jade admits he's learned a lot [[MoralSociopathy about humanity]] by watching Luke grow, or any of the ''dozens'' of time Guy declares his UndyingLoyalty to Luke, damn the fact that [[spoiler: Luke's a replica.]] And some examples are more heart''breaking'', including when '''Asch''', of all people, yells at him for putting himself down all the time.

* RealityEnsues: In most RPGs, the heroes kill mooks, even human ones, without a second thought. Although Luke has no problem killing monsters, the first time he kills a human, he has a HeroicBSOD.

to:

* RealityEnsues: Oh very much. Abyss might be one of the most brutally "realistic" look at a world in a JRPG.

In most RPGs, the heroes kill mooks, even human ones, without a second thought. Although Luke has no problem killing monsters, the first time he kills a human, he has a HeroicBSOD.HeroicBSOD.
** Luke is constantly LockedOutOfTheLoop by everyone, except for his mentor Van. Instead of this leaving Luke confused but focused on moving ahead on the journey, it makes him extremely angry because the others keep treating him like TheLoad. [[spoiler:This makes it easy for Van to exploit Luke to cause the destruction of Akzeriuth, since Van was GenreSavvy enough to use Luke's trust to make himself seem like he cared for him.]]
** The entire main story is a case of it. Yulia gifted mankind with the Score to prevent mankind from destroying itself. However people instead saw the Score as absolute and become focused on making sure the Score was fulfilled, since if history is already predetermined, [[YouCannotFightFate whats the point trying to alter it?]]



* RecurringBoss: And most of them are [[ThatOneBoss that boss]] too.

to:

* RecurringBoss: And The most common foes faced in the game is the QuirkyMinibossSquad, the God-Generals, and all of them are [[ThatOneBoss that boss]] too.



* RelaxOVision: Censoring on how Jade ''[[strike:rapes]] [[http://youtube.com/watch?v=2dtCoe7sMIQ beats up]]'' Dist.

Added DiffLines:

* ThereAreNoTherapists: None whatsoever, brutally so. The short version is that '''the whole plot''' could have averted if the BigBad had gotten therapy. For a little more detail, both [[MadScientist Jade]] and [[HeroicSelfDeprecation Luke]] definitely need this as well. ''Especially'' Luke.

Added DiffLines:

* BettyAndVeronica: [[spoiler: Natalia ultimately sees Luke and Asch as this in regards to her (main) choices in suitors. The NiceGuy AllLovingHero that Luke becomes post ImportantHaircut puts him as the Betty, while JerkWithAHeartOfGold GoodIsNotNice Asch falls under Veronica. In this case, both are ChildhoodFriends, with Asch having a ChildhoodMarriagePromise with Natalia as a bonus. The GainaxEnding leaves which one she would choose in the end unknown.]]

The eighth mothership title in Namco's ''TalesSeries'', and its tenth anniversary title. It was released in Japan for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation2 in 2005, and in North America ([[NoExportForYou but not Europe]]) in 2006.

In true TalesSeries fashion, it doesn't take long for the first [[GutPunch game-changing plot twist]] to hit.

* ShoutOut: Typical for a TalesSeries game. Noteworthy examples are three of Anise's dolls being modeled after [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Cless]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Philia]], and [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Presea]]. Jade's belt buckle is PacMan. Nam Cobanda Island is full of {{Shout Out}}s to various Namco games. There is one replica in Daath who comments that [[spoiler:"Zelos died,"]] which is a possible way that VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia can end.
** Every single one of the Anise-only accessories that change Tokunaga's appearance are a ShoutOut to something. Most are from the TalesSeries, but some are from other series, such as [[VideoGame/{{Xenosaga}} KOS-MOS]] and [[VideoGame/{{Tekken}} Heihachi]].

** In one of Jade's flashbacks, Gelda Nebilim sure looked an awful lot like [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Raine Sage.]] Nebilim even became a teacher just like Raine was. It doesn't help that Gelda Nebilim's [[TaraPlatt Voice Actress]] in the U.S. version is the same one who played Raine in [[TalesOfTheWorld Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World]]. In the [=OVAs=], at least, they have the same Japanese [=VA=].

* InnocentInnuendo: Anise's suggestion to Florian that they sleep together [[note]] Anise is thirteen years old while Florian is chronologically two years old, has the body of a fourteen-year-old, and the mentality of a toddler [[/note]]. Luke is understandably [[{{Squick}} squicked]] by this until Anise clarifies that she means a sleepover involving the whole group.
