* {{Badass}} - ''Yuri. Lowell.'' How badass is he? He's the first main character of the Franchise/TalesSeries to come in first in Namco's [[PopularityPower popularity polls]], and managed to do so against twice. He also has over ''fourteen'' {{Badass}} tropes applied to him on his Characters listing. Yuri holds the record for most 1st place poll rankings (even beating out [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Leon]]) and he won all three ''consecutively''[[labelnote:note]]To compare, Leon won the first poll and the third, but not the second. So that makes Yuri the only one so far to win consecutive polls.[[/labelnote]]. After the third time, Namco decided to just retire him (and Leon), probably because it looked like he wasn't leaving that spot anytime soon. And seeing how the third place and below tends to shuffle around every year, his record is unlikely to be surpassed.
** Judith is a DragonRider on a mission to save the world with only only said 'dragon' for company, she's so tough that even [[MemeticBadass Yuri]] thinks that she could tear her way out of a monster's stomach if it swallowed her. There's also Karol, whose character arc revolves around him learning courage and confidence, and leads to his SugarWiki/MomentOfAwesome on the Zopheir Bladedrifts.



** After sweeping all the bosses in the game in the BonusDungeon and making it to the end, it's slightly surprising to find that the final boss at the end is more difficult than any other before him. Only slightly because, well, this is [[spoiler:[[{{Badass}} Kratos]] [[EnsembleDarkhorse Aurion]]]], and the difficulty may be ameliorated by the possibility that the player had to run through the dungeon several times and level up a ton in the process.

If you're playing the PS3 version on Hard or Unknown, that LastChanceHitPoint safety net gets removed. Hope you enjoy {{Total Party Kill}}s!

** A particularly memorable callback, especially to ''VideoGame/TalesOfEternia'' and ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'', in the PS3 version: Rita unlocks her second Mystic Arte (Indignation) by re-enacting the opening to ''VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia'' in the 200-Man Melee against Dhaos. If she gets Dhaos to under half his HP and casts Thunder Blade in Overlimit 4 or higher, she'll cast Indignation instead. Dhaos will utter [[ThisCannotBe "Sonna...]]'' [[ThisCannotBe sonna bakana!!"]]'', and the spell will instantly kill him.

''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]].

Added DiffLines:

* AnarchyIsChaos: Refreshingly {{Inverted|Trope}}. The Guilds have all the trappings of [[UsefulNotes/{{Anarchism}} anarchist]] philosophy: everyone lives according to their own ethics, you can freely choose to join or leave a Guild whenever you want or even make a one-man Guild on your own if you desire, you don't appoint a leader, and the only authority is people following the directions of others out of personal admiration or professional respect rather than by laws or decree. However, the Guilds come across as far more orderly (and sympathetic) than the chaotic and corrupt Empire.
