Tales of Symphonia is a fantasy role-playing video game, produced by Namco, first released for the Nintendo GameCube in 2003 and later for the PlayStation 2 in 2004. It is the fifth main installment in the Tales RPG series, taking place long before Tales of Phantasia. The game focuses on a young group of friends from a small village near an industrialized prison camp, one of whom is announced to be the chosen one, as they protect her on a pilgrimage to religious shrines to regenerate the world.

Lloyd Irving[edit]

  • From the moment they are born, everyone has the right to live.
  • [repeated line] Give me your name and I'll give you mine!
  • Dwarven Vow #1: Let's all work together for the sake of a peaceful world.
  • Dwarven Vow #2: Never abandon someone in need.
  • Dwarven Vow #4: Don’t depend on others. Walk on your own two legs.
  • Dwarven Vow #7: Goodness and love will always win.
  • Dwarven Vow #10. Play hard, play lots!
  • Dwarven Vow #11: Lying is the first step on the path to thievery.
  • Dwarven Vow #14: Even a small star shines in the darkness.
  • Dwarven Vow #16: You can do anything if you try.
  • Dwarven Vow #18: It is better to be deceived than to deceive.
  • Dwarven Vow #24. Never let your feet run faster than your shoes.
  • Dwarven Vow #32. Cross even a stone bridge after you've tested it.
  • Dwarven Vow #41. It is better to begin in the evening than not at all.
  • Dwarven Vow #44. Haste makes waste.
  • Dwarven Vow #55. A bad workman blames his tools.
  • Dwarven Vow #108. Let sleeping dogs lie.
  • Dwarven Vow #134. Compassion benefits all men.
  • Bah, studying is for chumps.
  • Even if you become an angel, you’re still you, okay?
  • [After Presea handles the sacred wood with ease] I've lost all confidence as a man.
  • [repeated line] Hey, shut up, Genis!
  • Just because the logic is sound, it doesn't mean it's right.
  • That was so cool, Sheena! Man, I wish I could conjure Summon Spirits too! And say cool things like, (In a deep, threatening voice) "Burn to oblivion!"
  • [after learning that Remiel is Colettes' father] Regardless of who your real father is, you’re still you. Nothing’s changed. You just have two fathers. Just think of yourself as being lucky for having more than most people do.
  • What will you accomplish by dying? Nothing! There is no meaning in dying!
  • [angry with Governor General Dorr accusing him of thinking that his justice is absolute] Where do you get off? Don't even start spewing the word, 'justice'! I hate that word! If you wanted to save your wife, you should have resigned your position as Governor-General and searched for a cure, or help, or whatever! You're a worthless jerk who couldn't give up his social status even for his own wife!
  • No matter how right your words are, you have to actually carry it out in order for them to have any meaning.
  • [To Kratos, after winning against him in a duel] I defeated Kratos, the angel, the one who betrayed us. And I forgive Kratos, the hero of the Ancient War, who helped us. That’s all.
  • [After defeating Zelos; Kratos ending] We trusted you...
  • [After defeating Kvar without Kratos] Mom, I hope you were watching...
  • [After defeating Mithos' final form] Goodbye... Mithos...
  • [After dying] I'm sorry...Dad...
  • It’s not the same! This city doesn’t have a non-aggression treaty with the Desians! How can we go on a quest to regenerate the world if we can’t even save the people standing right in front of us?!
  • Colette, stop! If you sacrifice yourself, your friends who love you… and your family… and… and me… we’ll all be sad. It will be the same as sacrificing all of us!
  • Colette… I’m sorry! I couldn’t save you… I’m so sorry! I promised I wouldn’t make another mistake, but it looks like I have again…
  • I’ve been thinking about that for a long time. Someone asked me why I came all the way to Tethe’alla… what it is I want to do. I want a world where everyone can have a normal life. I’m tired of people having to become sacrifices. I’m tired of discrimination. I’m tired of people becoming victims. I’m tired of it all.
  • I’m not Mithos. I want to save the two worlds my way with the help of my friends.
  • Shut up! It doesn’t matter if you’re a half-elf, a human, or whatever. No matter who or what you are, once you are born into this world you have the right to live!
  • The world is never going to change if we just wait for Cruxis to make the next move, right? So this time, we’re going to strike them first.
  • [Regarding his plan for him and Genis to escape from a trap] Dwarven Vow #16: You can do anything if you try! We're dead anyway if we fail.
  • [After Zelos' Chosen's Orb saves him from an otherwise fatal trap] This is… Zelos’ Chosen Orb. He protected me… No, that can’t be. He’s a traitor… A traitor…
  • [After Kratos leaves after talking to him on the Flanoir outskirts] I forgot to ask what “judicious” was.
  • People who can’t accept those who are different are the ones to blame!
  • No matter how painful things have been, you just can’t dwell on the past.
  • I don't quite get it, but I got it.
  • You bastard.... You'll pay for this.... Cruxis, the angels, the Goddess Martel.... It's all a big lie isn't it...? Let her go, NOW!
  • [After seeing what the Desians have done] Damn Desian Bastards!
  • (After defeating Mithos for the final time) You could have lived with us... in our world... Damn it.
  • It's more painful not being able to believe, than to worry about betrayal

Colette Brunel[edit]

  • [Repeated line, with variations] I'm sorry to worry everyone.
  • [when asked by Raine what the name of the monster species is] I like Poochie!
  • [After falling and breaking a shield holding the others captive] Oh, no! I broke it!!
  • [referring to a previous statement made by Kratos] He said we can throw the Exspheres away at any time. But right now, we need to carry the burden of the hopes and dreams of the victims and fight on their behalf.
  • [After Sheena says that they will win for Mizuho, Corrine and everyone who believed in her] And... for myself too. I don't want anyone to make the same mistake I did. No one should have to think that he has to sacrifice his own life.
  • [after her disease is discovered] This time, I don't want to disappear. I really don't.
  • Um...Um...DIE!
  • [after she releases the second seal and develops severe insomnia] Dream some good dreams for me, Lloyd...
  • [if Lloyd is KO'd]No, NO!
  • Oh, Holy One, cast thy purifying light upon these corrupt souls... JUDGMENT!
  • Oops!

Genis Sage[edit]

  • [To Lloyd after Colette asks to be alone, in sing-song] Ha, ha. You got re-jec-ted.
  • (Examining Lloyd's wanted poster) Good for you Lloyd. They're saying you're good looking.
  • That's why I like you Lloyd !
  • Mithos, you are my friend, right ?
  • Mithos, Martel is already dead...
  • [After Genis blocks a fireball in Palmacosta] Amateurs.
  • (After asking a question and being told he wouldn't understand) No, I don't understand, that's why I asked. Are you stupid or something?
  • You're gonna regret this!
  • Marble? Marble! NO!
  • Man, that was pathetic !
  • Pancake time! STALAGMITE!
  • I call upon thee in the land of the dead, unleash thy fury of thunder! INDIGNATION!
  • [To Regal] My stupid actions have killed many people. I don’t know what you did, and your crime won’t go away, but when you’re suffering it’s alright to at least say so.
  • Infinite powers, grant me thy strength! METEOR STORM!
  • Gentle winds, gather before me and transform into blades of air! CYCLONE!
  • [On Rodyle being inferior to Zelos] I'd say you two are on the same level.
  • I'll show you your powerlessness! INDIGNATION... JUDGMENT!
  • I call upon the power of the holy blade! PRISM SWORD!

Raine Sage[edit]

  • [after Colette, using her Chosen strength, easily lifts the muscular convict Regal] Men are so useless these days.
  • Wait just a moment. I'll translate.
  • [looking at a Key Crest Lloyd made for her Exsphere] MARVELOUS!!!
  • In order to change the world, I must first change myself.
  • [about Kratos challenging Lloyd to a duel] Adults are troublesome creatures. They aren't very good at admitting their mistakes. This is probably his way of settling things.
  • [prior to Lloyd's duel with Kratos] "You're about to witness something remarkable...the sight of your own son surpassing you. Lloyd is...our hope."
  • [After finding that Noishe is a sacred animal] I simply MUST dissect him!
  • [To Forcystus, at the Iselia Human Ranch, if you choose her as the first person to go along with you] What needs to be purged are the contents of your pathetic brain!
  • [On Kratos's betrayal] People...change. For better or for worse.
  • [To Lloyd, on Kratos being a father] That man has risked his life to save you. Think carefully what that means.
  • [When casting Resurrection] Bring back this soul from Purgatory! RESURRECTION!!
  • [When casting Revitalize] Root of all creation, grant us the breath of life! REVITALIZE!"
  • [before Lloyd leaves her alone in the collapsing room] "If you don't understand, then make use of your remaining life to think about what it means for a person to live. That's my final lesson to you as a teacher. Now go. Do as your teacher says."
  • "Living on without hope is worse than death, don't you think?"

Kratos Aurion[edit]

  • [win quote] Blame your fate.
  • [After killing the group in the tower of salvation] You cannot oppose fate.
  • [After defeating Lloyd at Origin's seal] I cannot die until I fulfill my duty.
  • [Before entring Martel's temple] This isn't a field trip, you know.
  • Don't do anything you'll regret...
  • [after Kvar calls him a "pathetic inferior being"] Feel the pain- [Kratos slashes Kvar] of those inferior beings-[Kratos slashes Kvar again and Kvar falls to the floor] ...as you burn in hell! -Kvar dies-
  • [After Lloyd, in response to his being criticized for not noticing Sheena following them to assasinate Colette, sarcastically says that Kratos never makes mistakes] Even I make mistakes. I made a terrible one...
  • [repeated line] Don't die, Lloyd.
  • [Last words before leaving for Derris-Kharlan, after Lloyd acknowledges him as his father] Don't die before I do, Lloyd... my son...
  • [After Yuan gives Kratos some of his mana in order to live] And I thought I’d finally earned the right to die.
  • [While talking to Origin] In order to do something, you must do it yourself, it is not enough to merely rely on someone else and go along with their ideals.
  • [In a skit, after eating Raine's cooking.] Ugh, First Aid!
  • [In a skit, to Lloyd's intelligence level.] Is this what happens when one is raised by a dwarf?
  • [At the Asgard Ruin, referring to Raine's 'Ruin-Mode'] She must really love ruins. Or perhaps...something happened to her when she was young.
  • [During a skit about Forcystus] That's why war is so tragic. To win means to make victims of your opponents and give birth to hatred.
  • [During the scene where they have to row washtubs to Thoda Geyser] Washtubs, hmm....
  • [chant whilst casting Judgment]Sacred powers, cast your purifying light upon these corrupt souls. Rest in peace, sinners!

Sheena Fujibayashi[edit]

  • If there really is a goddess, why did she make a world like this?
  • [To Zelos after he betrays the group] You were always a pervert, but I never doubted you were a good person when it came down to it!
  • It looks like I have an strong affinity for falling down holes.
  • [after telling Lloyd to go on without her, insisting that she will catch up with him, and before falling into a hole] ...I’m so stupid. Stubborn to the very end… I really need to start acting more feminine at times like this and let him rescue me. ...Heh, that wouldn’t be my style, now, would it?
  • [To Zelos] Oh yeah, I've forgotten that this guy's actually a part of high society too.
  • Damnation or salvation...I guess we're about to find out.
  • You're in for a world of hurt.
  • [Just before the fight with Volt] ...For the sake of everyone who risked their lives to protect me, Volt! I demand your power!
  • Disciple of everlasting ice! Hammer of godly thunder! Servant of mother earth! Envoy from the dark abyss! Gather before me and unleash thine power!
  • Fire, Mana Canon!
  • Undine help!
  • [while establishing a pact with a summon spirit, right before the fight] I am Sheena! I ask that thou annulst thy pact with Mithos and establish a new pact with me.
  • Summoning Corrine: I summon thee...Let's go Corrine!
  • Summoning Undine: I call upon the maiden of the mist. I summon thee... come, Undine!
  • Summoning Efreet: I call upon the red giant, ruler of hellfire. I summon thee... come, Efreet!
  • Summoning Sylph: I call upon the heavenly messengers. I summon thee... come, Sylph!
  • Summoning Luna: I call upon the light of the heaven. I summon thee... come, Luna!
  • Summoning Volt: I call upon the hammer of godly lightning. I summon thee... come, Volt!
  • Summoning Celsius: I call upon the disciple of everlasting ice. I summon thee... come, Celsius!
  • Summoning Gnome: I call upon the servant of mother earth. I summon thee... come, Gnome!
  • Summoning Shadow: I call upon the envoy from the dark abyss. I summon thee... come, Shadow!
  • Summoning Origin: The source of heaven, earth, and everything in between, the ruler of all. I summon thee... come, Origin!
  • Summoning Maxwell: Ancient ruler of the elements. I summon thee... come, Maxwell!

Zelos Wilder[edit]

  • [Personal motto, shared with Lloyd in Heimdall regarding the upcoming duel with Kratos] Whatever will be, will be.
  • [To Sheena, when she does not realize that he is implying that Regal is the president of Lezareno] *sigh* Is your chest the only part of you that's well-endowed?
  • [after Mithos reminds him that he betrayed the group to Cruxis to avoid his fate as a Chosen] Oh, you know what? I changed my mind. That won't matter after we beat the snot out of you.
  • [about the unconscious Regal] Me? You want me to carry this ogre by myself? Are you kidding me?
  • Oh, you're so cute, Colette !
  • No one stands a chance against the great Zelos!
  • [To Lloyd after they first meet in Meltokio] No offense, but I'm not interested in talking to guys.
  • [To Genis] You're an obnoxious brat, you know that?
  • [After their encounter with Kratos in Sybak] Man, what an arrogant SOB. Talking as if he knows everything...
  • [Talking to Presea upon discovering that she is in Lloyd's group] Oh, that's so sad... You're being used by these uncivilized barbarians.
  • [During the skit, where the group are talking about what makes a good leader, after Colette and Regal give relatively good advice] 3! This old man! He played 3! He played knick-knack on my knee!
  • Even now, to tell the truth, I get tired of all the problems. Sometimes I think it'd be easier if everyone and everything were just destroyed.
  • [After he hugs Lloyd from behind after preparing a meal with sleeping drugs in it] 'Cause we're best friends, right? I worry about you. You must be tired.
  • I-isn't anyone gonna say anything?
  • [After being healed in battle] Love ya.
  • [After taking damage in battle] Not the face!
  • [After being told by Presea that he is clumsy after he triggers a force field that traps the group- possibly intentionally] Aww... I'm so sad now.
  • [To Genis, who is a half-elf] Well, in the end, we're the same. Nobody wanted us to be born.
  • [To Kratos before he duels Lloyd] This guy's really stubborn, simple minded, and tough as nails. So he's more than a match for you by himself. But anyway... try your best.
  • [About Kratos] I think... parents are there to protect their children... But this guy, he just goes back and forth like he can't make up his mind! Doesn't he realize that it only hurts you? And after all that, he challenges you to a duel?! What kind of family turns swords against one another? This whole thing is crazy!
  • [To Lloyd, when confronted about discriminating against half elves] I know that they're normal people, just like you and me. But that's what discrimination is about. Knowing that, and still not being able to shake that feeling...
  • [After defeated in the Tower of Salvation] It's alright... To tell the truth, I got kind of tired of living anyway...
  • [After a battle] Don't worry, there's hotties in heaven, too!
  • [When he learns a new attack in battle] Damn! I must be a genius!
  • [about Aska leaving the Tower of Mana] He probably left to find himself some chicks.
  • [after betraying the party on Kratos's route] Haha, I don't know what to tell ya. I'm just a weak, lazy bum. All I want is a fun, easy life. That's it- nothing more, nothing less!
  • [Letter left with the Chosen's Orb] This is a symbol of my trust. Hang onto it for me, okay? I don't have the right to ask for your forgiveness, but I still want you to forgive me. P.S. Don't tell the others.

Presea Combatir[edit]

  • [about Iselia's Mayor's racist hatred of half-elves] You criticize and attack people for their birth and upbringing - things they cannot change. It is you who are not human.
  • [To Zelos when he is in his Masked Swordsman costume] Are you hiding your face because that outfit is embarrassing?
  • [after Rodyle says that Colette put her friends in danger] Stop blaming Colette for things she did not do!
  • [After killing Rodyle] I did it, Alicia. I've avenged your death.
  • [Insisting that Lloyd proceed deeper beneath the Tower of Salvation rather than try to save her at the cost of his mission] Lloyd, you are a kind person. But if you allow your kindness to interfere with your judgment, you’re merely weak.
  • [Prior to Lloyd's duel with Kratos] Lloyd is not alone. We are always with him. Even if we do not take up our weapons, we fight...alongside him.
  • [After the coliseum referee states her title]...Idiot...
  • [to Mithos] What you've done has caused suffering and death to countless people. Can you feel their pain?
  • The deeper the wound, the more important it is to overcome it
  • [after coliseum fight] First battle victorious. No injuries detected.
  • People chose the path of destruction. What we’re trying to do may be nothing more than meaninglessly extending the life span of the world…
  • It’s easier to hate than to forgive.
  • [about her hate of Exspheres] Hatred... gives birth to nothing...
  • I want to go home...

Regal Bryant[edit]

  • I like to think that I'm smart enough not to start trouble when I don't understand the situation.
  • In this case, it's all right just to ignore Zelos.
  • They're all so violent. [after the party destroys the Defense System and expresses pleasure in doing so]
  • [After staying behind to hold off legions of angels chasing the party] You shall not pass!
  • Why does the topic of conversation always go out the window when talking to Colette? [after Colette gives two incorrect theories for why Lloyd's being forced to recite a Dwarven Vow in order to eat dinner helped him memorize them]
  • I have no intention of becoming part of the food chain without a fight!
  • What is this ominous light that threatens to engulf us?
  • I see the education level in Sylvarant matches the status of the world. [after Lloyd incorrectly guesses that Efreet is Gnome's elemental opposite]
  • [seeing an Exsphere on Presea- the one that the group is then attempting to remove] An Exsphere!? You have become yet another victim?
  • I promise never to use these hands in battle again.
  • Your will manifests itself in the words you speak. Whether they be curses, or words of joy, the souls of those words yields power.
  • No matter how hard I try to move forward, I am held back by the sin I have committed. I am so used to the weight of my sin that I am afraid to let it go. It's so easy to simply acknowledge myself as a criminal and let it envelop me in its apathy.
  • ...I’m sorry. I...lost the will to atone for my crimes by taking comfort in the feeling of being punished. Death is not punishment. Punishment is living with one’s crime and working to atone for it.
  • At this moment you have two options: choose what you desire to do or what you must do
  • Indeed. It is enough that I alone bear the weight of sin. You and I are the epitome of sin! I'll Drag You Down To Hell With Me!!! [after Rodyle calls Colette a failure of a Chosen and Presea says not to blame Colette for sins she didn't commit.]

Mithos Yggdrasill[edit]

  • By using the Exspheres to eliminate the different bloods that flow within elves and humans, everyone will become the same lifeless beings. Discrimination will vanish. That is the grand age I strive for.
  • [Explaining why he wants to turn people into Lifeless Beings] People fear and hate what is not normal. They are scared of those that are different. Then the solution is for everyone to become the same.
  • With revolution comes sacrifice. If you cannot understand that, then you deserve to die with the others.
  • [Coming out of Altessa's house after Lloyd talks to Kratos] Wow, that was an amazingly corny speech. Congratulations.
  • [Mocking the group's efforts after leaving Altessa's house] No life should be born for the sole purpose of dying? What do you think those Exspheres are that you’re using?
  • [After Lloyd tells him that his plan will result in the loss of innocent life] Human! Don't tell me what's right and wrong!
  • Why do you interfere? We both want the same thing! I just wanted to save the world and my sister!
  • [At Sheena and Zelos, the Fugitive] What value does one burdened to exist with cursed blood have? Sometimes running is the only way to save yourself. Humans are...so arrogant.
  • [At Genis and Raine, the Neglected] Is it a sin to be weak hearted? Not everyone's strong. Not everyone can stand being despised.
  • [At Presea and Regal, the Judged] And thus, you forget the past… The countless lives that were lost... and the pain of those that suffered. Crimes must be met with punishment.
  • [Before the final batttle] Do you think I'm going to beg for forgiveness? Ridiculous! There is no Goddess. So I will continue to pursue my ideals. If there is no place where I can live, and if I've been denied my Age of Lifeless Beings... then the only thing left for me is to build a new world on Derris-Kharlan. A world just for my sister and me!
  • [Explaining his resolve after being reduced to half health in his first form] My sister means everything to me. I won't let any of you stand in my way. I'll revert this entire world back to nothingness.
  • [After his first form is defeated] My dream of a world for my sister and me...
  • [Last words] Farewell, my shadow, you who stand at the end of the path I chose not to follow. I wanted my own world, so I don't regret my choice. I would make the same choice all over again. I will continue to choose this path!
  • Genis... Don't betray me...
  • [After being defeated for the first time] Home. I'm going home... Home. I am going home with my sister...
  • We're better off casting aside such filth and becoming lifeless beings.
  • None of you understand how I feel!
  • [After Lloyd argues that vengeance does not solve problems] That is merely logic. People are not moved by logic.
  • [After Lloyd asks his name] People need not introduce themselves to a dog. [Lloyd, understandably, protests] Fine. I will tell you my name, wretched human. I am Yggdrasill, leader of Cruxis. ...And the Desians.
  • [Beginning of a battle] I'll show you the meaning of true power!
  • Not everyone is strong, not everyone can stand being hated.
  • [At the start of the final battle] There's nothing anyone can do.
  • People are not moved by logic.


  • [First lines, to Lloyd] And just who the hell are you?
  • [After Lloyd refuses to give his name] Hahaha! You certainly have guts. But I'm afraid I don't see the need to introduce myself to a miserable little creature like you.
  • [Just before he battles the party alongside Botta at the Renegade Base] So you've come, like moths to the flame!
  • [As his Renegades hold both Kratos and Lloyd at swordpoint] Kratos, if you value your son's life at all, do as we say. Release Origin's seal. Otherwise, Lloyd dies right here.
  • I guess from your attitude, you don't plan on releasing Origin. If that's the way it's going to be, then you'll just have to die!
  • [Taunting Kratos, trying to get him to release Origin's Seal] You changed once you got a family. Just like that time fifteen years ago. When Anna was transformed into a monster, you lost the ability to fight back. If she hadn't been together with you, she would have never turned out like that. Such an unfortunate woman.
  • [After Mithos reveals himself at Altessa's House] Dammit! Yggdrasill! How the hell did you find out?
  • [Explaining why he's helping the party get to Derris-Kharlan] Now that Yggdrasill knows who I am, I've got no choice but to work with you. Don't think I want to be your friend or anything.
  • [To Lloyd, at Origin's Seal, regarding Kratos, who has just attempted to give up his own life (but was saved by Yuan)] You want him to live in eternal damnation?


  • [first lines after Mithos transfers her consciousness to Colette's body] Mithos, what have you done?
  • I've been watching all this time. Unable to move, unable to do anything, I watched all those foolish things you've done. Have you forgotten everything? We stopped the Ancient War because we dreamt of a world where humans, elves, and those in between could live in harmony.
  • Mithos, please. Listen to me. What you have done...is wrong. It is not what we strived for.
  • [last words] If things were going to end up like this, perhaps the elves should never have left Derris-Kharlan. If they hadn't, people like us would never have been born.


  • [On Hologram Projector, after Magnius intends to contact Forcystus and tell him he was deceived about the Chosen] I have a slight problem with you contacting Lord Forcystus. He'd realize what I'm trying to do.
  • That's nothing you lower lifeforms need to concern yourselves with!
  • (Upon being told that he'll be dragged down to hell) Drag me down to hell? You inferior beings and your pathetic jokes!
  • Presea, I would have treated you so much better had you made me a Cruxis Crystal in that little body of yours!
  • With Thor's Hammer in my possession, Yggdrasill and Cruxis will beg for my mercy! Soon, even that eyesore of a tower will fall before my cannon!
  • [before equipping the Crystal and turning into a monster] The Cruxis Crystal is finally mine! Now, I think I'll test its power by equipping it on myself!
  • [last words] Ugh! What's - happening? My body - my body is disintegrating! Pronyma, you tricked me! But I won't die alone! I'm taking all of you inferior beings with me!
  • [To Colette, when she lost her soul] My, that's a violent young lady there. Marvelous.


  • I am Forcystus, one of the Desian Five Grand Cardinals. I am a superior half-elf who rules over the farm where we cultivate you pathetic humans.
  • Lloyd! As long as you have that Exsphere, we will always come after you! Always!
  • What do I care? Even if the world is destroyed, it's of no concern to us half-elves.
  • How dare you speak ill of Lord Yggdrasill! We have Derris-Kharlan! It is a world of mana, the very source of life. The destruction of this tainted world is of no concern to us.
  • [planning on killing the party and escaped prisoners shortly before his death] I am one of the Five Grand Cardinals! I won't die so easily! I'm taking all of you inferior beings with me!
  • [mortally wounded, last words] Lord Yggdrasill! Glory to the New Age of Half-Elves!


  • [After a townsperson calls him Magnius] That's LORD Magnius vermin!
  • So the forsaken Chosen and her entourage of vermin have finally arrived!
  • I'll take care of the Chosen, along with you fools who can't let go of your elven blood!
  • I lost...to a bunch of kids?!
  • Dammit! Lord Yggdrasill! Glory to the coming Age of Half-elves!(last words)
  • [As Chocolat says that Dorr will save her] Right, Dorr. Whatever. Take her away!!!
  • Damned little...enough of this crap! [in Palmacosta]
  • Inferior beings! [repeated line]


  • Celsius: [To Efreet after both are defeated] I never thought I'd have to see your face again.
  • Gnome: [To Sylph after both have been defeated] Hey, Sylph! Whoa, it's been like what, uh, 4000 years? How's it goin'? Lookin' good!
  • Gnome: [After defeat] "Ugh! What's with that four-on-one garbage? Now Mithos, he did it all by himself."
  • Corrine: (last words) Volt's just lost his faith in people... Make your vow and try forming a pact one more time... you can do it, Sheena!
  • Origin: [to Lloyd] You who lack the right. I have lost faith in all things. Have you come here to disappoint me as well?
  • Kuchinawa: [to Sheena, as an illusion in Welgaia] Everyone would be so much happier had you not been born.
  • Shadow: ...Vow...
  • Shadow: ...Fight...
  • Virginia: [as an illusion in Welgaia] You'll just get abandoned again. It's because you're a half-elf.
  • Virginia: [to Raine; whom she does not recognize, about a small doll that she is holding, which she believes to be her daughter] Look what you've done. You woke up Raine!
  • Seles: I see the Chosen is his usual self, wandering around aimlessly.
  • Elf from Heimdall: [after the Tower of Salvation collapses] We always simply stood by and watched. We never did anything. We need to rectify this attitude.
  • Chocolat: [to the mayor of Iselia after he tries to defend his powerlessness concerning the Chosen] Everybody shoved all the responsibility on the Chosen and Lloyd and the others! What have you done?! You haven't done anything!


[Lloyd, Colette, Genis, Raine and Kratos are staying the night at the inn in Triet. Lloyd enters Colette's room.]
Lloyd: Are you asleep?
[She doesn't respond immediately and he turns to leave the room.]
Colette: Lloyd...
Lloyd: Huh?
Colette: ...I’m sorry that Papa, Grandmother, and I couldn’t prevent your exile.
Lloyd: You dork. It’s not your fault, so you don’t need to worry about it. And besides, I’m the reason why the village was devastated.
[Colette gets up from her bed and faces Lloyd.]
Colette: For Marble’s sake, and for the sake of the villagers that were killed, I’m going to do my best to regenerate the world.
Lloyd: Yeah...I’m sorry I woke you.
Colette: No, it’s okay. Good night.
[Lloyd begins to approach her, but stops.]
Lloyd: Thanks.
[Lloyd leaves Colette’s room.]
Colette: (to herself) ...I’m going to do my best for you, too, Lloyd.

[Zelos has "accidentally" led the party in to a trap at the Fooji Mountains.]
Yuan: You've fallen right into my trap, fools!
[Everyone looks at Zelos.]
Lloyd: He just called you a fool.
Presea: Zelos...is clumsy.
Zelos: (faking his damaged pride) Oh...I'm so sad now...

[Lloyd's group has reached the Thoda Sightseeing Boat Dock and have paid to go to Thoda Geyser. They approach their questionable transportation...]
Lloyd: It’s a...washtub?
Genis: Yep, it’s a washtub...
Kratos: (intrigued) Washtubs, hmm...
Colette: Wow! This looks like it’ll be fun!
Raine: (nervously) I...I’m going to wait here. Go on ahead without me.
Lloyd: What’s wrong, Professor Sage?
Raine: N-nothing. I’m not getting in that thing.
Colette: It looks fun! Come on, let’s get in!
Genis: (grabs Raine’s hand) Yeah, Raine!
Raine: AHH!
[Everybody looks at Raine, surprised to hear her shriek.]
Lloyd: ...Ahh? Professor Sage...are you afraid of water or something?
Raine: (regaining her composure, but still nervous) I...I was just starting to say, “Ahh, this should be fun!”
[Raine enters one of the washtubs.]
Lloyd: Um...sure.
Kratos: (snidely) Heh.

Zelos: (on his first day in the snow) I was so excited to see snow for the first time, and I made a snowman in the garden with my mother. Then suddenly, the snowman fell apart. Before I knew what was going on, red snow began to fall.
Lloyd: ...Red...snow?
Zelos: It was my mother's blood. She was murdered.
Lloyd: ...
Zelos: As she fell, she grabbed my shoulder and told me, "You should never have been born."

Zelos: No one stands a chance against the great Zelos!
Lloyd: You mean no one can stand you, right?
Zelos: Lloyd, that was seriously harsh, man.

Yuan: So you've come, like moths to the flame!
[Yuan and Botta appeared at the scene]
Lloyd: Do you ever say anything original?
Zelos: You gotta admit... that line was seriously clichéd.
Yuan: I see your attitudes haven't changed! But your impudence ends here! Prepare to die!

Sheena: Did you see my attack?
Zelos: Oh yeah, baby, I was watching alright.
Sheena: For some reason, I don't think that's what you were focusing on.

Kratos: You're going to fight alone?
Zelos: This guy's really stubborn, simple minded, and tough as nails. So he's more than a match for you by himself. But anyway... try your best.

Zelos: [pinned to the ground by a convict (later revealed to be Regal) threatening to kill him] Oh... hey Lloyd? If you abandon me here, I swear, I'll come back to haunt you.
Lloyd: [sweat drops] ... I just had a sudden, violent urge to abandon you.

[Colette has grown weak again after releasing the Seal of Water.]
Colette: (weakly) I'm fine. It'll go away soon. I'm sorry for worrying everyone.
Lloyd: [annoyed] Okay, that's enough. You're not allowed to apologize any more.
Colette: (laughing nervously) I'm sorry.

Genis: Dwarven Vow #7...
Colette: Justice and love will always win.
Lloyd: Uh, I hate that saying.
[Note: The Dwarven Vow is previously presented as "Goodness and love will always win"]

Kratos: Is everyone alright?
Raine: You should worry about yourself, first!
Kratos: ...I'm sorry.

Sheena: And don't come back!
Colette: I don't think they can come back.
Sheena: Uh... you're becoming more like Lloyd, aren't you?

Lloyd: Victory...
Colette: ..belongs to...
Sheena: ...the most...
Zelos: ...Sexy! Dead Sexy!

Collete: Our weapons are love...!
Genis: ...justice, and...
Kratos: *sigh*, ...hope.

Sheena: Well, don't think you can beat us just because we're women.
Raine: Women are better suited for battle, you know.
Colette: I won't lose. I have to protect everyone!
Presea: We will always win.

[when finishing a battle and Lloyd is in the poison statues]

Lloyd: Collete... cure, poison...
Collete: What! no, i'm not poisoned.
Lloyd: no... i meant... me...

[when finishing battle and Sheena is Ko'd]

Raine: You know, this isn't the end deary.
Sheena: What'd you mean, you cold hearted witch!
Raine: Maybe we should just leave her?

Regal: We must protect...
Presea: ...This world...
Sheena: ...With our own hands.
Zelos: And speaking of hands, I think I'll put mine...
Sheena: Ugh, idiot!

Genis: Presea, I... I... I... I... I...
Presea: ...
Genis: You're p... p... pretty...
Presea: P... p... pretty? What is that?
Genis: I... I... I'm complimenting you!
Presea: ...I see. Then you are p... p... pretty, too

[The Chosen's group has finished releasing the Seal of Wind. The group sets up camp nearby, but before that, an accident occurred which involved Colette severely damaging one of her hands.]
Lloyd: Colette. Let me see your hand.
Colette: Huh? Why?
Lloyd: (starting to get angry) Just show me!
[Lloyd looks at Colette’s wounded hand.]
Lloyd: You’re hurt! It must have happened when you fell. Look how much you’re bleeding!
[Colette slightly steps away.]
Colette: But it doesn’t hurt--
Lloyd: What?
Colette: (nervously rethinking what she said) Uh, I mean, it doesn’t hurt that much.
Lloyd: (pause) ...Colette, can I talk to you for a sec?
[Shortly afterwards, Lloyd approaches Colette holding two mugs.]
Colette: What is it, Lloyd?
Lloyd: I thought it’d be nice for us to talk just by ourselves.
Colette: ...Sure.
Lloyd: (giving Colette one of the mugs) Here, it's hot coffee.
Colette: Thanks.
Lloyd: Hot isn't it?
Colette: Yeah... really hot.
Lloyd: (with concern) It's actually iced coffee.
Colette: What?
Lloyd: I had Genis make it cold.
Colette: (nervously) Oh...yeah, of course it's cold.
Lloyd: I lied. It's actually hot.
[Colette drops the mug in shock of his realization.]
Lloyd: ...I knew it. How long have you been like this?! You can’t feel anything at all, can you?!
Colette: Th-that’s not true.
Lloyd: (getting angrier) You’re lying! When you fell earlier, you already couldn’t feel anything, could you?!
Colette: (nervously fumbling) W-well, uh...but...uh...
Lloyd: You were bleeding like crazy, but you didn’t even flinch when I squeezed your hand!
Colette: ...I guess the secret’s out.
Lloyd: You haven’t been eating lately either.
Colette: I eat! Hehe...
Lloyd: Barely. You even started eating things you don’t like. And that’s not all. Have you been sleeping?
Colette: Of course. Hehe...see; my eyes aren’t red or anything.
Lloyd: Stop lying to me! You always do that fake giggle when you lie.
Colette: Th-that’s not true...
Lloyd: (calming down) Is it that hard for you to trust me?
Colette: (resigned) No! It’s not like that! I just...I just didn’t want anyone to worry.
Lloyd: What’s happening to you?
Colette: I don’t know. I don’t know, but things first got strange when I released the Fire Seal. I suddenly didn’t want to eat anything anymore. Even when I did, it didn’t have any taste.
Lloyd: No taste?
Colette: I can’t hold anything down when I force myself...so, I haven’t been eating. I never get hungry.
Lloyd: (trying to comprehend how she feels) That’s...that’s...
Colette: Then when I released the next seal, I stopped getting sleepy. I close my eyes, but I just can’t sleep. I haven’t slept at all since then. Then with this seal, I stopped feeling anything.
Lloyd: Why? Why didn’t you say anything?!
Colette: Well, I figured, this is just what it means to become an angel. So I shouldn’t let it get to me.
Lloyd: (getting angry again) This is what it means to become an angel?! Not eating anymore, not sleeping anymore, not feeling anything anymore?!
Colette: But my eyes have actually gotten better. I can see really far away now. And my hearing, too. I can hear even the faintest sounds really well. I can hear them so well that...it’s kind of painful sometimes.
[Lloyd approaches Colette and embraces her.]
Lloyd: (voice breaking) I’m sorry. I didn’t realize what was going on at all. I’m sorry.
Colette: Please don’t tell the others.
[He lets her go and looks at her, face to face.]
Lloyd: Why?!
Colette: Well, I mean, we’re all on this trip together and I want it to be fun. So, I don’t want you to worry about it either, okay?
[Lloyd embraces Colette again.]
Lloyd: (angrily, but gently) You’re so stupid!
Colette: I’m sorry, Lloyd. Even though you’re crying for me, and I’m happy; so happy I want to cry...but I can’t anymore. I’m sorry...!

Raine: Lloyd, this room will soon collapse. Hurry up and go.
Lloyd: No! I’m not leaving you behind! I don’t want to sacrifice anyone anymore!
Raine: Sacrifice? When did anyone become a sacrifice? I believe in your ideals. A world that would accept those of us caught in the middle. I believe in your vision of the world. It has become my hope. I came all the way here in order to realize that dream. I’ve no regrets.
Lloyd: Saving the world won’t mean anything if we lose you!
Raine: My soul will live on in the world you create. But if your ideals die, then my hope dies as well. Living on without hope is worse than death, don’t you think?
Lloyd: I…I don’t understand that at all!
Raine: If you don’t understand, then make use of your remaining life to think about what it means for a person to live. That’s my final lesson to you as your teacher. Now, go. Do as your teacher says.

Yuan: ...Don’t worry, he’s alive. I gave him some of my mana.
Lloyd: Da... ...Kratos. Are you really okay?
Kratos: ...Looks like I failed to die once more.
Lloyd: You stupid jerk! You can die any time! But when you die, that’s the end.
Yuan: You want him to live in eternal damnation?
Lloyd: Who said anything like that?! What will you accomplish by dying? Nothing! There is no meaning in dying!!
Kratos: ...You’re…right. To think, I had to have my son teach me such an obvious lesson.

[Fighting Mithos with Lloyd and Colette in the party]
Mithos: My sister means everything to me. I won't let any of you get in my way. I'll revert this entire world back to nothingness.
Colette: Mithos, please! Don't make your sister suffer any longer!
Lloyd: That's right Mithos! You know the truth!
Mithos: None of you understand how I feel.
Colette: That's not true Mithos!

[If Colette is not participating in the battle]

[Fighting Mithos with Lloyd but not Colette]
Mithos: My sister means everything to me. I won't let any of you get in my way. I'll revert this entire world back to nothingness.
Lloyd: You'd betray the world just for your sister?!
Mithos: None of you understand how I feel.
Lloyd: You're the one that doesn't understand!

Raine: He's going to take her to heaven to become an angel.
Lloyd: You Bastard! I won't let you get away with this!

[Mithos has been defeated, and all that remains is his Cruxis Crystal]
Colette: Mithos is...
Presea: It's just like Alicia. Mithos will continue to live so long as the Cruxis Crystal exists!
Mithos: ...And eventually, I will be taken over by the crystal.
Lloyd: Mithos...
Mithos: I'm tired of playing your game of good and evil... Hurry up and destroy the crystal. ...If you don't, Derris Kharlan will continue to drift away.
Lloyd: Mithos...!
Mithos: Do it now! ...Before I too...am no longer myself...
Genis: Lloyd, please, help him! Let him die while he's still himself.
Lloyd: [hesitantly] ...All right...
Mithos: Farewell, my shadow. You, who stands at the end of the path I chose not to follow. I wanted my own world, so I don't regret my choice. I would make the same choice all over again. I will continue to choose this path!
[Lloyd destroys the crystal, and all of the mana that was in Mithos's body goes into Lloyd's exsphere]
Lloyd: [holding his exsphere] You could've...you could've lived with us in our world... Damn it...

Raine: You have a surprizing breadth of knowledge, Kratos.
Kratos: I once had an aquaintance who was somewhat knowledgeable on Summon Spirits.
Raine: I see.

[After meeting three other Gnomelettes, the group meets with a fourth in the Temple of Earth.]
Gnomelette 3: What? You losers got a problem? You wanna fight?
Lloyd: (slightly annoyed) Their reactions are identical to the point that it’s just silly... No, we don’t have any business with you.
Gnomelette 3: Hmm? Your faces says, “We want to go further in, but there’s a big chasm and we can’t go any further. I wonder if there was some other place we haven’t been yet? Well, I guess we’ll go here.” Right?
Lloyd: (truly annoyed) ...What kind of face is that?!

[Colette talks to Lloyd about the infection on her shoulder.]
Colette: Lloyd, I’m sorry. I’m being a burden to you again, aren’t I?
Lloyd: What are you talking about? You’re the one that’s suffering. Stop apologizing.
Colette: Okay, I’m sorry. (sadly) Lloyd...you saw my shoulder, right?
Lloyd: Yeah.
Colette: I wonder if I’m just going to turn into one big Exsphere.
Lloyd: (wholeheartedly) You dork. There’s no way that’ll happen!
Colette: (still upset) But it keeps spreading! Right now, it’s still hidden under my clothes, but eventually...
Lloyd: Colette...
Colette: If that happens, you’re going to hate me. I’ve caused you so much trouble, and now on top of that, my body’s turning into this disgusting thing...
Lloyd: It’s not disgusting. Remember what I said. You’re you. Even if you become an Exsphere--no. No, I won’t let you become an Exsphere.
Colette: ...Really?
Lloyd: Yeah. Have I ever lied bef--well, okay, I have. But I did keep my promise to give you your birthday present, so I swear that I’ll save you, no matter what. I promise.
Colette: (cheering up) Hehe, you always save me, and you always keep the promises you’ve made to me.
Lloyd: Yeah, so cheer up! When you’re down, everyone feels sad, including me.
Colette: I’m...truly thankful to have met you, Lloyd. This time, I don’t want to disappear. I really don’t. I’m gonna live, right? I’m...going to be able to stay by your side, right?
Lloyd: Of course! You’re right here, in front of me, alive. I swear that you will be absolutely, positively, indubitably all right!

Zelos: You okay, Lloyd?
[Zelos approaches Colette and places the Key Crest on her Cruxis Crystal]
Mithos: What are you doing?
[Mithos launches his light ball towards Colette, but Zelos shoved Colette out of the light ball's range]
Mithos: I thought you wanted me to set you free of your fate as a Chosen!
Zelos: Oh, you know what? I changed my mind. That won't matter after we beat the snot out of you.
Lloyd: Zelos! I knew you'd come back to us!
Zelos: Sorry about all that. It was the only way I can get my hands on this. Here.
[Zelos tosses the Aionis to Lloyd]
Zelos: Refine that with dwarven arts, and it'll let even a human use the Eternal Sword!
Lloyd: :[confused] You... are you saying you did all that just to get this?
Sheena: That's right. This stupid Chosen released us from those traps back there.
Zelos: :[repenting] But it is true that I deceived you. I've held you guys back for a long time. I figured I'd at least have to do something like that to make up for it.
Lloyd: If you want to make it up to us, hurry up and fight!
Zelos: You got it!
