Tales of Xillia
Fan Nickname: There's an NPC vendor who can be heard screaming about fresh mutton in almost every single town that you go to. He gets called "The Mutton Man"; sometimes in direct reference to The Muffin Man, other times simply because he's, well... A man who sells mutton.
Hey, It's That Voice!: Jude shares voices with a young Nessiah, whereas Milla is Milanor; these characters are bitter enemies in their canon.
Jude's voice actor has also played characters from Cardfight!! Vanguard, MM!, and Ookiku Furikabutte; Sawashiro is much better known for voicing Celty and Suruga. Then there's Ragna the Bloodedge and Hsien- Ko as Alvin and Leia recently.
And now we have Keel Lorenz; also Kiral Mekrial and Professor Saotome as Rowen.
Agria is Mari.
Teepo is Athena Asamiya, Aoi Hidaka and Runa Gusuku.
Wingull is Hei.
Gaius is Byakuya Kuchiki and Zero. He also voiced Dymlos.
Elize is Mafuyu.
The opening narrator and the real Maxwell is Aeolia Schenberg, Master Xehanort, and Gold Roger.
Presa is Mikoto Misaka in Japanese, and Lightning in English.
English-wise, Jude's been using his fists not just to smack people around, but also to point at others while yelling "OBJECTION!!". He's also like to remind you that he is still planning on kicking your ass, or eating lots and lots of food. Thankfully, right now, he's less of an asshole to his own men.
Also English-wise, Milla is also known for working in a General Hospital.
Agria in English is Sakura Haruno.
Alvin is Chrom. Both Japanese and English! By English, he is also capable of cutting you with fingers.
It may not seem like it at first — or second, or any — glance, but Leia is everyone's favorite Boobie Lady, Litchi, in English. Leia also uses a staff like her. She's also once the Little Queen.
Gilland is the bone of his sword.
Also, he's Dist the Reaper. I mean Rose! Dist the Rose. Right.
Fun fact: This is the third Tales game where he played a notable villain, but this is the first time you actually get to fight said villain directly (Dist used his robots in all his battles and Cumore got dealt with in a cutscene, Gilland gives you a straight up brawl).
Japanese-wise, while his VA is not someone you see everyday (Hiroyuki Kinoshita), Gilland is in fact Handsome Jack
In English, Rowen is... wait, since when did Death the Kid become Death the Old Man!?
Gaius would like all female staff members to wear...
TINY MINISKIRTS! And the opening narrator and the real Maxwell is Vandesdelca Musto Fende. And
CAPTAIN GORDON, DEFENDER OF EARTH!! I Knew It: No one was surprised that Alvin would be the one to do all of the
chronic backstabbing that usually happens in the series. Name's the Same: Wingull is not a Pokémon.
Relationship Voice Actor: Both verisons of the game are chock full of them. For example, in the English version, Jude is voiced by Sam Riegel; while Agria is voiced by Kate Higgins. In the English dub of the Fate/stay night anime, Sam Riegel played Shirou, who summons Saber, played by Kate Higgins; meaning that you get to watch Saber stomp on Shirou while laughing mad.
What Could Have Been: Hideo Baba stated in an interview that Tales of Xillia was actually produced against a rushed schedule, and that several things were cut. Such things included a hot springs event, an area similar to Nam Cobanda Isle, and a Villain Shoes section where you would play as Gaius and Muzét.
Said villains have been actually made playable in the sequel along with various other features
