* BloodierAndGorier: In a significant departure from the usual ''TalesSeries'' policy of BloodlessCarnage, ''Xillia 2'' includes frequent blood splatters and BloodFromTheMouth, mostly when [[spoiler:Ludger stabs someone to destroy their divergence catalyst]]. This was probably a significant factor in the "C" rating[[labelnote:*]]15yrs and up[[/labelnote]] given to the game, as the Japanese rating system is ''much'' harsher on visible blood than other territories.

* DarkerAndEdgier: ''Xillia 2'' is much less optimistic than the more recent titles in the ''TalesSeries'', leaning more towards a [[WorldHalfEmpty Half-Empty]] CrapsaccharineWorld, complete with [[spoiler:a BittersweetEnding]].

* GottaCatchEmAll: The cat sidequest, which involves you finding and adopting several stray cats (many of which bear a resemblance to certain ''TalesSeries'' characters), then ''forming your own cat army to scavenge the streets for items and funny hats''. (There is no part of the preceding sentence that is inaccurate.)

* DuelBoss: [[spoiler: As expected, Ludger and Julius.]]
** Milla challenges Ludger to a one on one near the end of the game. Part of it is to test his resolve, but the other part is to make sure he can still use his chromatus after [[spoiler: Elle leaves him to head to Canaan.]]

** Milla challenges Ludger to a one on one one-on-one near the end of the game. Part of it is to test his resolve, but the other part is to make sure he can still use his chromatus after [[spoiler: Elle leaves him to head to Canaan.]]



* [[EverybodysDeadDave Everybody's Dead Ludger]]: [[spoiler: The Julius ending. Ludger chickens out at the last minute and decides not to kill Julius, however the party, and Julius himself, tries their hardest to convince him otherwise. Gaius decides that their best course of action is to go through Ludger and kill Julius themselves, since they NEED to get into Canaan. Surprisingly, Ludger snaps and goes into full protective mode, snatching Julius' pocketwatch, and uses it to hit his third Chromatus form. What follows is an epic cutscene where the entire party tries to fend off Ludger, which ultimately leads into the final battle of the Julius Ending... The [[OhCrap ENTIRE PARTY]]. Gameplay-wise, this could easily turn into {{Curbstomp Battle}}, but after the battle, we see Julius in absolute shock and horror, then we cut to a shot of Ludger looking at Canaan with bloody swords and blood smears on his cheek. The party is nowhere to be seen. That's right. Everyone you knew and loved from the first game, who had hopes and dreams and good futures ahead of them, all dead. [[YouBastard Murdered by you]]. Of course, since Bisley is going to sacrifice Elle to save the world, and you decided not to help, she'll eventually die too]].
* ExpendableAlternateUniverse: Deconstructed in true ''Tales'' fashion. To a certain extent, the parallel worlds ''are'' reality to those who inhabit it. [[spoiler:Milla is very angry when it's explained to her that Ludger has just destroyed her world]].
** In another example, Elle gets ''very'' upset after [[spoiler:the alternate Milla is sacrificed so that Milla Maxwell can return. To her, the former is the "real" Milla and she is upset by both her loss and the party's diminished reaction to it. Learning to accept Milla Maxwell as a person in her own right is one of the focal points of Elle's character arc]].

** Due to the [[DarkerAndEdgier nature of the game]], a lot of the callbacks amount to FridgeHorror. For example, the scene in which [[spoiler: a fractured version of Alvin accidentally shoots Presa is disturbingly similar to the scene from the first game where Alvin shot Leia.]]

**When Milla returns she quietly shushes Jude with a finger to the lips, just like she did in the first game when they first met and when she [[spoiler: came back from the dead]].

* BittersweetEnding: [[spoiler:The parallel worlds are erased and the world is saved from being consumed by Canaan, but either Ludger or Elle sacrifice themselves to save the other. And if Elle sacrifices herself, there's an implication that [[StableTimeLoop the events of the game may repeat themselves]]]].

* NPCRandomEncounterImmunity: The Lilium Orbs from the first game don't work anymore, so they've been converted into Allium Orbs, which are functionally similar.

* {{Retcon}}: Many, most notably and inexplicably Rieze Maxia's spirit climes (such as the eternal night in Fenmont), which were shown in Xillia's ending to have been caused by the Schism and faded when it fell. A bonus scene with the Four indicates they have also forgotten that plot point.
