* UnintentionallyUnsympathetic: Alternate Milla strikes this way to some players, as her brash, {{Jerkass}} attitude makes it hard to feel for the character when she talks about her issues. It doesn't help that the original Milla was arguably RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap for some western players, and it's also hard to feel sorry for Alternate Milla when she calls Ludger a world destroyer like he enjoys doing it and fails to keep in mind that Ludger '''has''' to destory the fractured worlds or else the real one will be destroyed. [[AgeAppropriateAngst What they fail to realize is that Ludger has destroyed everything she's cherished]] and to [[AngstDissonance suddenly be okay with it would be bizarre and unnatural.]] ** Elle can be seen this way, too. While she's certainly a young girl and in a world she doesn't know well, her acting like a BrattyHalfPint to everyone who isn't Ludger or Alternate Milla, doesn't give her a lot of sympathy points. Even late in the game, after [[spoiler: she watches as the party, and specifically Ludger, kill her father who was a divergence crystal and she has a grief-stricken moment of refusing to tolerate Ludger, even if he's the prime dimension version of her father,]] she's not sympathetic for very long.

** Rideaux is an in-universe Scrappy, but the game still goes out of its way to make you hate him with the same passion the game characters do. The least of which includes saddling Ludger with a 20 million Gald bill for treating his and Elle's injuries, and takes Elle hostage which forces Ludger to take out a loan to pay him. It's all his fault you have to deal with the above mentioned debt system.

** The above mentioned debt system. To break it down, it requires the player to pay a specific amount of money whenever you reach that amount over and over throughout the game or they'll be unable to travel to new areas. What makes it annoying is the travel restrictions as a result of it seems to exist just to prevent the player from going to areas they aren't supposed to be at yet when the same thing could be accomplished better by other means, the game will frequently prevent the player from going to said areas even when there's no reason they shouldn't be able to, (i.e. walking there) and it means that the player is constantly strapped for cash. The only benefit the system seems to have is that items are left in Ludger's mailbox for those diligent repayers to pick up (which means you have to backtrack there repeatedly to get said items) many of which the player could have easily purchased on their own or acquired by other means if they hadn't been forced to pay off a debt. Worse, as mentioned below, the reward for successfully paying it all off is highly debatable.

** Ivar, who has gone from Milla's handmaid to an employee of the Spirius Corporation. He's a lot more relaxed in this game and some fans actually wished he was playable.

* TheyWastedAPerfectlyGoodCharacter: Fractured Milla joins your party during the half-point of the game. Fractured Milla comes from a world where she completed her mission years ago and worked alongside Muzét, which could leave some amazing banter between Fractured Milla and the prime dimension's Muzét, maybe even go into detail how she managed her mission so early and wondering whether she could have done the same as prime dimension's Milla, when learning about the schism being dispelled and the two worlds living together. But aside from some short banter in one skit or a one-off mention of not liking how the two worlds interact, Fractured Milla does not do much beyond being angry over her world disappearing. [[spoiler: The only purpose she ends up serving is to pointlessly sacrifice herself in the final third of the game, to bring Prime Milla into your party and leaving a minor, but quickly forgotten tension between Elle and Milla.]]

** There's also the S. S. Pelune area for Chapter 11. The entire thing is a CallBack to the S. S. Zenethria from the previous game and this is even [[LampshadeHanging lampshaded]]. The area is dimly lit, with a dark colorscheme and every area looks the same, coupled with the hallways being very narrow and making it difficult to avoid random battles while proceeding. And those enemies do not care if you use Holy Bottles, they will still charge at you.

** Alt Millia lacks the ability to use Milla's Summon Spirts. This makes her a chore using, since it means she can't heal like the others can now and removes Milla's biggest strength.

** Teepo remarking that Muzet used to be a psychopath was funny at first, but becomes much less so as her character quests show how isolated she feels because the rest of the party still doesn't trust her.

* KarmaHoudini: [[FinalBoss Gaius]] becoming king of the united world is regarded as one of worst examples in Tales history by some fans.

* StrawmanhasaPoint: Exodus is commonly considered terrorists without a cause but they are actively fighting against a king that nearly tried to wipe out Elympios out in the first game (through immediate means or otherwise). It's hard not to see their accusations of favoring Raize Maxia as justified. * RootingfortheEmpire: Some people sympathize with Exodus's attacks against the government considering the government is ruled by [[BaseBreaker Gaius.]]
