Trivia / Tales of Symphonia

  • Fan Nickname: Disco Lord Yggdrasil.
  • I Knew It: Some people saw the somewhat unorthodox Luke, I Am Your Father twist coming. Others came close by believing the two characters to be brothers or connected in some other way.
  • Name's the Same: Kratos has the same name as the protagonist of the God of War Series. Coincidentally, this Kratos can obtain the title "War God". Though while the spelling is the same, they are pronounced quite differently (KRAH-tos vs KRAY-tos).
  • No Export for You:
    • Averted after ten years: The PS2 release of Tales of Symphonia was bundled with Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for the PS3, complete with a graphical update, in the "Tales of Symphonia Chronicles" two-pack for North America and Europe.
    • None of the OVAs have been released outside of Japan. Fortunately, the fans have translated them.
  • What Could Have Been: Voice and animation files not used in the main game show that the characters had unused artes that would've made them even more powerful. For example, Lloyd would've been able to the same artes as Cress, including his Limit Break Dark Blade and his Eternal Sword artes while Colette would've been able to use Final Fury (complete with tripping that somehow produces lasers from the sky and an extra Limit Break called Sephiroth. Check out the fan game "Act Cadenza Strife".
