** Additionally, other elements are used to expand on the elemental system. These elements frequently include [[ShockAndAwe Lightning]], [[AnIcePerson Ice]], [[LightEmUp Light]], and [[CastingAShadow Darkness]]. Sometimes, they're considered as separate elements of their own, while at other times, they're just extensions of the classic four.

* Frequent use of the four classic elements: [[PlayingWithFire Fire]], [[MakingASplash Water]], [[BlowYouAway Wind]], and [[DishingOutDirt Earth]]. The story will often center around these elements in some way, and each of the elements forms the bulk of magic Artes used by a lot of mage-type characters in the games. Sometimes, the elements will be represented by and/or controlled by powerful beings or deities, like Summon Spirits, Aggregate Sentiences, and Seraphim/Malakhim.

* Heavy use of {{Magitek}} and/or SchizoTech in the plot, Which is powered by some world specific AppliedPhlebotinum (lenspunk, craymelpunk, fonpunk, blastiapunk, psipunk, manapunk, etc). Most often, it comes in the form of LostTechnology left behind by either {{Precursors}} or AdvancedAncientHumans of eons past.

* Sidequests that are very spaced out in-between events and are only available after the game reaches certain points. There is no indication to where or when they'll be available, so a lot of exploration and {{Backtracking}} is required. Doing these sidequests will often reward characters with new titles, costumes, and rare equipment, and can sometimes add further depth into the game's lore and CharacterDevelopment. However, most of the time, these sidequests will be [[PermanentlyMissableContent permanently lost]] if you fail to do them within the event deadline, and there's no second chance until the next playthrough. Expect a lot of GuideDangIt to ensue.

* Settings are usually based on medieval Europe, Renaissance Europe, or Victorian England. If any form of technology is present, it will usually be {{Magitek}}, SchizoTech, or a combination of both. Most 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.
** If the technology is critical to the plot, chances are that it will not be around anymore by the time 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.

* The BigBad is the protagonist's teacher and/or father figure.
** At least one member of his FiveBadBand to be former friends or family of a fellow family member.



* If there is something the entire planet is dependent on, such as the world-wide religion, the things that let everyone use artes/the things that strengthen ability, etc., chances are it won't make it to through the end of the game. It is usually revealed to be obtained or performed in a [[PoweredByAForsakenChild less-than-moral way]] or is [[GreenAesop ultimately bad for the planet]], sometimes as part of the WhamEpisode as well, and the second half of the game is mostly spent on fixing this problem.

** Another recurring Mystic Arte is Big Bang, which is pretty much the equivalent to ''Franchise/FinalFantasy'''s Supernova where the user attacks enemies with the ''[[UpToEleven explosion that created the entire universe]]''. Mostly used by the villains but heroes can also use this Mystic Arte. Characters that have used this technique are as follows: [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Arche Klein]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Laville Clemente, Philia]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny2 Felice]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia Will Raynard, Dark Vaclav]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Arietta, Nebilim]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence Ange Serena]], and [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Duke Pantarei]].

** 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]].

** 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.
