- 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.
- I Knew It!: Two examples were figured out pretty easily by Tales series players:
- No one was surprised that Alvin would be the one to do all of the chronic backstabbing that usually happens in the series.
- Most people saw the reveal that Milla wasn't Maxwell coming, or at least had a feeling something like it was going to happen, mainly because 1) the fact that she is supposedly Maxwell at all seems like something that should have been a major twist in its own right and 2) it was casually revealed not long after the game was announced and discussed heavily in the game itself from the very beginning, alerting players that there had to be something more to it. It doesn't help that players who've played other games in the series with Maxwell in them will already suspect if not outright know that Milla isn't him.
- Milestone Celebration: The game is produced in celebration of the Tales series' 15th anniversary (which was in 2010).
- Name's the Same:
- Wingul is not a Pokémon.
- Despite the shared purple coloring theme, Teepo is unrelated to a certain half-dragon thief.
- This Gaius isn't a thief with a Sweet Tooth. Nor is he a Darth Vader Clone leading of an invading army.
- Jude's name is one letter away from being Judge Mathis. It's either a coincidence or a truly bizarre Shout-Out.
- Alvin shares his name with The Hero from Tales Of Commons, which was part of the Tales Of Mobile series. They're not related.
- Leia is not a princess. Isn't she a little short for a stormtrooper, anyway?
- 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.
- Within the Tales series itself, Japanese Milla and Alvin were Chien and Albert, respectively.
- 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.
- Word of Saint Paul: There's no official word on Wingul's sexuality, but his English voice actor, Kaiji Tang, has said that "his is the love story in the game" and occasionally reblogs sad Gaius/Wingul fanart on his tumblr.
