* The pre-battle cutscene in Chapter 12 [[spoiler: between Ludger and Victor]] is pretty awesome, and is one of the best-directed action sequences in the entire ''Tales'' franchise.
* Near the end, you get into a final battle with [[TheScrappy Rideaux]] and Ivar, who are trying to prevent you from leaving. Afterward, it's suggested to take care of Rideaux, and a dialogue option comes up - choosing the left only gives the jerk more fuel to hurl at Ludger. [[ShutUpHannibal Gaius tells him not to listen, before getting down and]] ''[[ShutUpHannibal punching Rideaux in the face.]]''
-->'''Gaius:''' [[TakeThat Just the empty words of a sore loser.]]
* In the FinalBattle, the EleventhHourSuperpower of [[spoiler: Ludger unlocking his full-power Chromatus]], complete with ThemeMusicPowerUp and copious amounts of ass kicking.
* The Xillia crew includes a BadassNormal from another world, a girl with an overdeveloped mana lobe even Maxwell recognizes as a genius, a General who controls battlefields like conductors control symphonies, the daughter/student of a legendary staff fighter, and a pair of PhysicalGods alongside their equally powerful human companions. [[spoiler: Ludger kills them in the Julius Ending. ALL of them. '''Alone'''.]]
** Considering that [[spoiler: his alternate universe counterpart Victor also did the same thing in his world, that means Ludger killed the entire Xillia party twice over.]] Ludger may very well be the most powerful ''Tales'' protagonist to date.
