* BrokenBase: On the Radiant Mythology side, people are split on who the best healers are. The arguments usually are whether or not [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Estelle]], [[VideoGame/TalesOfPhantasia Mint]], or [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Tear]] is the best healer, nevermind the fact that the above three are only a few of the healers in game.
** In general bringing up ideal parties is treading on FlameBait.
* ComplacentGamingSyndrome: In all three Radiant Mythology games, expect MagicKnight to be Descender's most used class. Paladin and Dualswords were popular in [=RM2=], while [=RM3=] has Gunner.
* GameBreaker: The third game introduces such a large cast that many just make the game a cake walk.
** [[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Van.]] He's a GlassCannon sure but he's got amazingly high magic attack and all of his magic artes are high end spells like Judgement or Frigid Coffin.
** Emil also too. He's got great speed and yet really damn powerful artes.
** Radiant Drive in [=RM3=]. It's basically Vesperia's Overlimit that locked you away from using Mystic Artes. With it, you can replicate [[MemeticMutation BLAH BLAH BLAH]] [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia TIDAL WAVE]] here.
** Fog in Narikiri Dungeon 3. Every fight can be won by just spamming Elemental Master.
* GermansLoveDavidHasselhoff: Tales of Link is far from well received in native Japan (Due to it's sheer difficulty and gatcha rate and various bugs), In the localized server however they are more well received.
* EnsembleDarkhorse: Kanonno Earhart, The heroine of the second Radiant Mythology game. She made it into the 5th ''Tales Of'' popularity poll, beating out fan-favorites like ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfTheAbyss Asch]]'' and ''[[VideoGame/TalesOfInnocence Spada]]'', which is pretty uncommon and quite a feat for an escort title character. Since then she has been a recurring character in [[DramaCD Drama CDs]], Tales Of Link and even ''[[BreakoutCharacter played a heroine role]]'' in the second part of the {{VideoGame/TalesOfAsteria}} game trilogy. Not bad for a main character from a spin-off game.
** What makes her notable is that neither her predecessor nor successor managed to make it to her level of popularity among the Tales Of fandom.
* JustHereForGodzilla: Most people buy the games simply because hey, it's a crossover game including fanfavorites like [[VideoGame/TalesOfVesperia Yuri Lowell]] and [[VideoGame/TalesOfGraces Asbel]] and you can use them anyway you see fit.
* NoExportForYou: All of the games in typical Tales of fashion, save the first Radiant Mythology game, have not been localized.
* RescuedFromTheScrappyHeap: Radiant Mythology series is notable for treating characters from VideoGame/TalesOfLegendia and VideoGame/TalesOfTheTempest well.
* TierInducedScrappy: Since each game has such a large amount of characters, some are not very useful.
** Chat is one because she has four artes, none of which are really strong. The only useful thing about her is her ability to spam attacks in Radiant Drive.
** Asch too is one mainly because he's a MasterOfNone. He's a MagicKnight sure but he has no highend spells, no healing, and he's a bit clunky. Luke has most of his artes but is stronger, Jade is a better spellcaster, and Van is a MagicKnight with much better artes and stats.
** Judith, which is sad because it's only because her artes were implemented in weirdly and she can't combo very well.
** Annie, mainly because her fighting style is by making glyphs that either buff or heal...which is a issue when you have a 3D style that makes it IMPOSSIBLE to use it.
** Between the Descender's classes themselves, Thief and Archer. Especially Archer post-[=RM2=] due to {{Nerf}}.
