** Musical terms are everywhere in the game, from the shop names, to the C. Core names, to the assumed names of the God-Generals before Asch joined up (Cantabile being who he replaced), to the positions of power within Daath.

* MagnficentBastard: Jade Curtiss counts as a semi-heroic example.

** His game incarnation is one for some too if not solely for his notorious {{Narm}} moment.

* VindicatedByHistory: When it was released it was considered... well, not ''bad'', but just sort of a ho-hum BaseBreaker entry. Likely not helped by it following on the heels of ToughActToFollow ''VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia''. Give or take ten years and its status has grown to be one of the most respected, if not ''the'' most respected title by the fanbase. The reasons why are its intriguing and realized ConstructedWorld, its complex plot and especially deep characterization, its stellar soundtrack, and for improving on ''Symphonia'''s gameplay by introducing free-run, which set the standard for later 3D titles in the series. It's now regarded as having aged the best of all the 2000s-era ''Tales'' games and is a strong contender for the franchise's MagnumOpus.

* MagnumOpus: BrokenBase aside, the game is widely considered the best game in the franchise thanks to it's great music, story, characters, and gameplay. [[FollowTheLeader Considering how the game would set the standard for the franchise]], it isn't hard to see why.

* FanPreferredCouple: Given the amounts of HoYay and FoeYay in the game, Luke tends to get shipped with [[LauncherOfAThousandShips several people]]. The biggest ships being [[HoYay Luke-Guy]], [[FoeYay Luke-Van]], [[ScrewYourself Luke-Asch]]. On the female side, Luke also gets shipped with [[{{Lolicon}} Anise]] and [[ChildhoodMarriagePromise Natalia]].

* FandomBerserkButton: Bashing Luke based only on his characterization at the beginning of the game is a foolproof way to turns half the ''Tales of'' fandom against you, who will dismiss your opinion as half-assed for forming it without finishing the game. Some youtubers have found this the hard way...

** To a similar degree, Luke as the main character. Although [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Yuri Lowell]] is still the most beloved protagonist in the franchise, Luke is now widely considered the best constructed one. Even though his {{Jerkass}} attitude at the beginning of the game can be off-putting (and the reason why he had a bum rap for some years), his ''massive'' CharacterDevelopment (by far, the biggest one in the entire franchise) makes it worth it.

** The 1st fight against Arietta. She herself is a SquishyWizard, but is flanked by two monsters and those two are threats by themselves. The liger and bird are both fast, have attacks that hit pretty strongly at that point in the game ''and'' get their strength and defense boosted by Arietta. Attempting to defeat Arietta first, to avoid her spamming spells like Limited and Negative Gate, [[ShootTheMedicFirst especially at your healer]], and to prevent her from buffing the other to won't work, as the monsters will follow you and kill you. It's a long battle, with having to choose between trying to kill Arietta first and taking lots of damage or letting her live and taking lots of damaged from buffed enemies. And this is ''the second boss'' in the game.
