** Finally, a reoccurring Mystic Arte where the character summons [[ShockAndAwe a gigantic bolt of lightning]] called "Indignation." Said Arte will also usually have the same/similar incantations across multiple games.[[note]]"I, who stand in the full light of the heavens command thee, who opens the gates of Hell! Come forth, divine lightning! This ends now! INDIGNATION!"[[/note]]. Characters that have used this technique include [[VideoGame/TalesOfThAbyss Jude]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Rita]], and [[VideoGame/TalesOfBerseria Laphicet]].

** One IdiotHero and/or [[HeartbrokenBadass Angsty Hero]]Hero]]. Occasionally both show up, but they're rarely the same character.



* One WhamEpisode in the ''perfect center'' of normal gameplay (it is really that horrifyingly accurate). Said FaceHeelTurn will also happen somewhere immediately before or after this time. {{Deconstruction}} will play a major part of the segment, but it will most likely not compare to the horror initiated. Due to this change in perspective, the BigBad will end up becoming the WellIntentionedExtremist he will be properly known for.
* Tragedies that could have easily been avoided if people would just [[PoorCommunicationKills open their damn mouths]]; this can range from the WellIntentionedExtremist BigBad doing horrible things that could have been avoided if he had only asked nicely all the way to NiceJobBreakingItHero because people somehow thought it better not to tell the player character vital information.
* A TheReveal where an EldritchAbomination is pulling the strings of the plot. Preferably, they use main characters and antagonists via [[BrainwashedAndCrazy brainwashing them to do their bidding]], often [[AndIMustScream forcefully]]. Very often the FinalBoss of the game.

* A famous, [[TheGhost but never seen]], pirate named Aifread.[[note]]Except in ''Tales of Eternia'', ''Tales of Vesperia'' and ''Tales of Berseria'' the former two in which the game's Aifread is a playable character and latter when he's a boss character.[[/note]] (Like the Dark Wings, it's probably not the same Aifread in each game.)

[[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Senel]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfXillia Jude]] are the two exceptions to this gameplay element since they use [[GoodOldFisticuffs their fists]] instead.

* Settings are usually medieval, Renaissance, or Victorian-based. If any form of technology is present, it will usually be {{Magitek}}, SchizoTech, or a combination of both. Most often the technology is powered by some world-specific AppliedPhlebotinum (lenspunk, craymelpunk, fonpunk, blastiapunk, psipunk, manapunk, etc.).

* Settings are usually medieval, Renaissance, based on medieval Europe, Renaissance Europe, or Victorian-based.Victorian England. If any form of technology is present, it will usually be {{Magitek}}, SchizoTech, or a combination of both. Most often often, it comes in the form of LostTechnology that cannot be created or replicated in the current age, and said technology is powered by some world-specific AppliedPhlebotinum (lenspunk, craymelpunk, fonpunk, blastiapunk, psipunk, manapunk, etc.). Very rarely will ''Tales'' games delve into modern day or futuristic settings.

* Settings will usually be medieval, Renaissance, or Victorian-based, and rarely delving into modern-day or futuristic territory like most [=RPGs=]. If there is some sort of technology present, it will usually be {{Magitek}}, SchizoTech, or a combination of both. Most often the technology is powered by some world specific AppliedPhlebotinum (lenspunk, craymelpunk, fonpunk, blastiapunk, psipunk, manapunk...).
** If the technology is critical to the plot, chances are that it will not be around anymore when the heroes defeat the FinalBoss. This is because the heroes come to the revelation that the technology they benefited from is actually causing more harm to the world. This results in a moral message through a combination of ScienceIsBad and a GreenAesop, with said technology being completely discarded by the end of the games.

** Pure {{Evil Overlord}}s, {{Generic Doomsday Villain}}s, {{Omnicidal Maniac}}s, and villains doing things ForTheEvulz, which are common in most [=RPGs=], are very rare in the ''Tales'' series. These types of roles are usually reserved for a GreaterScopeVillain more threatening than the current BigBad, which is usually an EldritchAbomination or a GodOfEvil.
