* CulturalCrossReference: In the beach sidequest of the first game, the names of the four girls you're supposed to find easily remind you of a certain book series that is [[GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff beloved by the Japanese]]. [[spoiler:[[LittleWomen Amy, Jo, Beth, and Meg]] make cameo appearances. Seriously. Bonus points to Jo apparently being a {{Bokukko}} here, and having Amy be blonde]]

** One side quest involves finding a woman's four daughters. Two of the daughter's names? [[LittleWomen Jo and Beth]].

''Symphonia'' introduced several concepts to the franchise, in both story concepts and gameplay concepts; the most notable is the 3D incarnation of the ''Tales''' signature battle system. Nearly every single ''Tales'' game that followed in its wake (as well as a number of {{JRPG}}s in general) owes something to ''Symphonia'', and its influence is still felt on the franchise to this day.

* ActionGirl: Sheena, Presea, and Colette can charge into battle and fight alongside the guys. Raine is primarily a WhiteMage, but her offensive spells can deal out some serious pain.

** Colette is kidnapped on two big occasions in the game, and the rest of the party must go through great lengths to rescue her both times. That said, she's quite capable the rest of the time.

** The same happens to Colette, who has an added level of stupidity with her techs. The main downside is that the AI simply doesn't know how to properly chain Colette's artes together, and ''especially'' doesn't know how to position her for Pow Hammer. This results in the tech either missing or only getting one or two hammers hit.

** The Penguinists and Penguiners, who look like people in penguin suits. And for a plant version, Mandragoras are just people with flowers growing out of their heads ([[TalesOfSymphoniaDawnOfTheNewWorld Dawn Of The New World]] makes them look more like monsters.)

* MovesetClone: Kratos and Zelos. [[spoiler: This is accomplished because they both ingested a metal called aionis that can grant humans magical abilities, effectively making them humans with elven blood, and Kratos later becomes an angel as well.]] It's actually quite a relief, since they take turns traveling with the party, and you don't have to adapt to yet another set of moves. This no longer applies once Kratos joins up with the other angels and learns moves such ss Judgement.

''Tales of Symphonia'' is a 2003 video game, the fifth game in Namco's famous ''VideoGame/TalesSeries''. It is the third to ever be released outside of Japan and the first in Europe. It stands as the top-selling game in the entire series, and was for a nearly a decade one of the few to break a million copies sold due to extensive worldwide sales - and thus was ''the'' best-seller internationally, natch, before ''VideoGame/TalesOfXillia'' [[http://www.siliconera.com/2014/12/11/bandai-namco-say-theyre-paying-attention-fans/ finally dethroned it]], at least in terms of single system sales. To date, Tales of Symphonia is still the best selling Tales game all platforms considered.
