* DummiedOut: [[http://tcrf.net/Tales_of_Symphonia_(GameCube)#Unused_Model There's an unused model of]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Rutee Katrea]] in the game's coding. She was probably going to appear in the Coliseum Cameo battle along with Garr. The PS2 version and PS3 versions also have an unused "Meikuu Zanshouken[=/=]Dark Blade" arte name shout for Lloyd, the same Mystic Arte used by [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Cress Albane]], hinting that Lloyd was probably going to receive an extra move along those lines as a tribute.

* OldSaveBonus: ''Tales of Symphonia Chronicles'' rewards the players who have Save Datas from previous Tales games on the PS3 with costumes from said games, with them being VideoGame/TalesOfGraces, VideoGame/TalesOfXillia and VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia; the funny thing is the Western version of Chronicles rewards the player for having a Save Data from Vesperia too, the ''Japanese Data'', Vesperia on the PS3 never got released outside Japan.

* BonusBoss: ''Lots'' of them. There's the four fights against the Sword Dancer, Abyssion, Maxwell, the mid-boss and boss of Niflheim, the fights against [[VideoGame/TalesOfDestiny Garr/Woodrow]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfEternia Farah and Meredy]] in the Colosseum, a DuelBoss fight against [[spoiler: Seles]] (also in the Colosseum,) and another DuelBoss fight against Kuchinawa.

* CouldHaveAvoidedThisPlot: Maybe if Colette had actually told everyone about [[spoiler:turning into a giant crystal, a lot of trouble could have been saved.]]

*** There's also Lloyd telling Colette at the very beginning that she's lucky to have two fathers.

** Ditto for Lloyd and [[SakuraWars Ichiro Ogami]]. It doesn't help that Kosuke Fujishima did the character designs for both.

* BraggingRightsReward: The Devil Arms. Acquiring them all is easy enough, but their ''true'' power can only be unlocked by defeating the BonusBoss Abyssion. Raine's subverts it, as it boosts her all-important Intelligence stat without having to go through all that trouble.



* InfinityPlusOneSword: All of the characters can earn one from the Meltokio Coliseum, though Regal's and Presea's lose out to certain weapons they can receive at level 80. Lloyd noticeably has two for his different attack stats; the Valkyrie Saber (earned in the Coliseum) for "Thrust", and the Kusanagi Blade for "Slash".

** Alternately, the Devil Arms. But since unlocking their full potential requires beating the BonusBoss Abyssion, they're also a BraggingRightsReward -- and a GuideDangIt on top of it. Raine's at least massively boosts her Intelligence even before getting unlocked, so you can still get ''some'' practical benefit.

** One of Lloyd's titles requires you to keep using the wooden swords he starts with well before you should have replaced them, that's all that really needs to be said.

to:

** One of Lloyd's titles requires you to keep using the wooden swords he starts with well before you should for an absolutely preposterous amount of plot, during which you'll have replaced them, that's to pass up several equipment upgrades. Colette and Genis have similar titles, requiring you to play a large portion of the game without, respectively, letting any party members get KO'd or using any Gels. These titles are all that really needs earned at ''completely different points'', so if you stumbled upon one by accident and even realized how you got it, you might realize to be said.go for one of the others but end up giving up the SelfImposedChallenge too early.

* InfinityMinusOneSword: The {{Lethal Joke Item}}s you can buy [[spoiler:after fully restoring Luin]]. They're pretty much the most powerful weapons purchasable.

** One of Zelos' titles, gained after wearing a full suit of golden armor, is a reference to [[TheTowerOfDruaga Gil]]; in fact a few games in the Tales series as well as other Namco titles reference The Tower of Druaga.

** Both Phantasia and Symphonia also have a special TowerOfDruaga-related title for collecting all of the TowerOfDruaga equipment (except in Symphonia you have to equip them all on Zelos to get it.)
