* GagBoobs: Not in a direct way, while Milla has big knockers, they instead uses Jude's lack of knowledge about that for humor ('''TEACH ME ABOUT BAZONGAS!!!'''). After all, 'Bazonga' is a slang word for 'boobs'.

* TheDevTeamThinksOfEverything:
** In Nia Khera, walking around normally gets you the [[ApatheticCitizens apathetic treatment]]. But if Milla is at the front of your party, all of the [=NPCs=] will bow as you pass.
** Milla's status image changes, once she obtains the aspirix on her right thigh. Her character sprite also retains it throughout the game [[spoiler: even when, much later, the gem inside of it has fallen out]]. Subverted with all of her alternate outfits, that remove the aspirix on her leg. Including the color variation of her default attire.

Another entry in the ''TalesSeries'', released in Japan for the UsefulNotes/PlayStation3 on the 8th of September 2011. It currently holds the record for the fastest-selling ''TalesSeries'' title and the second fastest-selling [=PS3=] title with approximately 525,605 copies sold in the first week. It was released on August 2013 in North America and Europe... where it dethroned ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia'' [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/12/11/bandai-namco-say-theyre-paying-attention-fans/ as international best-seller]], and thanks to some math, would mean it is now one of a handful of ''Tales'' games to sell a grand total of a million-plus units worldwide. In short: this game's pretty successful.

*** It's a bit of a shaky comparison, really. [[spoiler:Even though Elympios is the more technologically-advanced nation, it's in a period of sharp decline because of its critical mana shortages. And while ''Gaius'' certainly believes that one world should be destroyed to save the other, the heroes are actually presented with a viable third option from the very start]]. If anything, ''Xillia'' features the plot elements of previous ''Franchise/TalesSeries'' games but approaches them in new ways.

** Some missions have a very spefic timeframe they must be done or the quests become LostForever. The most jarring part is that while some skits tell you what you need to do, they don't tell you WHERE to go, meaning you can end up wasting a good while searching for a NPC and miss out on some very good interesting side quests.
** There's another side to this too. While the skits that hint at sidequests are an attempt to avert this, the hint skits themselves count for [[HundredPercentCompletion 100% Completion.]] The GuideDangIt here is that doing certain sidequests ''too early'' can result in some hint skits being LostForever. And is it's often not obvious which sidequests can safely be put off until later and which will disappear after a certain point.
