The Tales Series also has some jokes running between games. Observe the following:
Colette: Our weapons are - love!
Genis: Justice! And?
Luke: Our weapons are status-!
Anise: Playing dirty
Estelle: Our weapons are love!
Luke: You're weak!
Guy: You're a hack!
Yuri: You're weak.
Karol: You're a hack!
Estelle: You're whack...teehee!
- Also there's poor Veigue, who, after adding a dash of Ascended Meme and Big Word Shout, can be depended on for a dramatic KUREAAAAAAA in any cameo appearance. He doesn't do it in Tales of Graces, however. For some reason, he's also lurking in the background of every single Tales of Theatre 5-minute short.
- There's also a random one poking fun at Perpetual Frowner Asch. In Tales of the Abyss the eternally dependable snark king Jade says "you look like you swallowed a bug...oh wait, you always look like that." And then in Tales of Vesperia, you can find a signboard that details the fighting styles of all the Abyss party members - but all Asch's entry says is "always looks angry."
- Much like Gundam and their tendency to cast Daisuke Namikawa as their would-be Scrappies, Tales has a recurring gag to assign English dub VA Liam O Brien as the Smug Snake minor villain that could end up as a Hate Sink.
- Dhaos' susceptibility to the "Indignation" spell can be seen as this as well, with it always dealing severe damage and always making him shout This Cannot Be! when it's cast in any crossover game he's in. Even his expy Sekundes from Tales of Eternia ends up a victim of this.
