* AwesomeMusic: One of the strongest contenders for the Best Soundtrack in the TalesSeries title. And that's saying something.

* ContrastingSequelMainCharacter: In a meta sense, since Abyss is made by the same team behind ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfSymphonia Symphonia]]'' Luke is this to Lloyd. While both are [[IdiotHero Idiot Heroes]], Lloyd is an orphan from a poor background, starts off as a NiceGuy, and is TheUnchosenOne; meanwhile, Luke is from a wealthy background, starts off as a RoyalBrat with a [[JerkWithAHeartOfGold heart of gold]], and is TheChosenOne [[spoiler: or rather not really since he's the replica of the original Luke fon Fabre]]. However, both go through serious crap and [[AwfulTruth Awful Truths]] that change how they view the world. Both also end up becoming charismatic leaders and [[TheMessiah messianic]] figures by the end and save the world. However [[spoiler: while Lloyd manages to save both worlds and get his HappyEnding, Luke has at best a BittersweetEnding that is [[GainaxEnding deliberately vague]] on whether or not he's the one BackFromTheDead.]]

* LauncherOfAThousandShips: Luke. From how the fandom handles it, he ''really'' gets around from [[ScrewYourself Asch]] to [[LoliCon Anise]].

* FanPreferredCouple: OneTruePairing notwithstanding (see below), 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]].

** In the PS2 version, it was possible to remove the disk from the system while the game continued to run. This allowed you to go literally anywhere on the world map, and by replacing the disk, visit any location early to get powerful weapons that you weren't supposed to be able to access yet, most commonly the Keterburg Casino {{Lethal Joke Weapon}}s and the Vorpal Sword.

** Likewise, Jade. Impressive, especially, since he ''has'' no healing abilities. He's strong, and his fonic assaults are powerful. He really reaches gamebreaker status when you re-play the game and have Tutti on him for his Capacity Core the whole time, since it's +4 for everything, and is thus the best in the game, and his stats shoot through the roof.

Also notably, he has the only melee arte in the game that creates a field of fonons for the same element as its FOF-change form (Thunder Lance), meaning he can easily chain powerful FOF artes by himself.

** Van: Manipulator that rivals the minds of Mengele and Hitler or extremist that will avoid the extinction of humanity at any cost? Or PsychopathicManchild throwing a tantrum because bad things happened to him that were mentioned in the Score?
