''White Knight Chronicles'' is the first game for the PS3 by developer [[{{Level5}} Level 5 Games]]. You are... well, you - the game features an insanely robust character creator, which was actually used to create every NPC in the game. However, the main character is Leonard, a seventeen year old boy of no real importance until, in an effort to save the princess of Balandor, he acquires the Incorruptus "White Knight", a seven-meter tall suit of white and blue armor. What follows is your standard RPG fare, involving princesses, evil conspiracies... and HumongousMecha.

* ApatheticCitizens: You'd never know there was anything wrong with the world just by visiting the towns. Hell, Balandor's about as bright and cheery as it ever was ''the next day after'' the castle is raided, their king is murdered, and their princess is kidnapped.
** Actually, pretty much ALL of the people in Balandor, as well as Parma (who even have a gossip circle going on) are talking about the raid on the castle and how they pretty much have lost all the royal family now, except for the few trying to ignore it and go on with life. One citizen will even talk about how some people are too afraid leave their houses, and if you look around [[TheDevTeamThinksofEverything most of the kids that were outside the day before are nowhere to be seen (with the acceptation of two street orphans).]] You can't even go into the Noble's Quarter anymore because of all the damage.

* CompetitiveBalance: Depending on what discipline(s) you decide to master, you can end up...
** JackOfAllStats: The sword discipline results in this, as it does not heavily favor any particular style of combat aside from having slightly more slashing attacks in its arsenal than piercing and smashing.
*** MagicKnight: Use of a shortsword (less raw damage than a normal sword, but grants boosts to magic stats) Takes the sword skillset's jackness even further.
** FragileSpeedster: The bow discipline. Bow-wielders are typically the swiftest characters to act, and are not particularly tough. However, they make up for it with many useful support skills.
** MightyGlacier: The greatsword and axe disciplines both do this in different ways. Greatsword-wielders are glaciers who are suited to dueling single targets, while axe-wielders are far better at plunging into crowds of enemies and smashing them all.
** StoneWall: The spear discipline. It's designed to be used in tandem with large shields and the skillset is packed with status buffs, things designed to draw aggro away from other party members, and very little in terms of major damage.
** SquishyWizard: The staff discipline. It's the only way to really make the most of both types of magic offered, but you're not going to be doing much else.
*** GlassCannon: Staff / [[BlackMagic Elemental Magic]]. All the classic spells what knocks the peoples down are here. In addition, a sword-wielder who makes frequent use of the DualWield skill Phantom Blade forsakes the extra defense given by the small shields typically paired with swords in order to effectively double their damage output.
*** TheMedic: Staff / [[WhiteMagic Divine Magic]]. Heals, buffs and status relief.
