Description Edit | History

Multiple gameplay elements carry over from entry to entry. The main unifying element is the combat system, the Linear Motion Battle System (LMBS for short). Considered as one of the mainstays and building blocks for every main entry in the series, it undergoes multiple incremental changes and alterations from one installment to the next. Some features introduced in certain games have proven popular enough to remain in future installments like "Free Running" (the ability for a character to freely roam the battlefield). Elements of turn-based combat are also present, though to a lesser degree: an example of this is Destiny's "Chain Capacity" feature (the number of skills a character can perform), which appears in later games in the series.

Themes

Each tales game is built around a theme or "Characteristic Genre".

Game Theme Moral
Tales of Phantasia Legends Everyone's the hero of their own story, but there's always a villain and you could be the villain in someone else's story.
Tales of Destiny Destiny There's nowhere you can be that isn't where you're meant to be...
Tales of Eternia Eternity We are not living in eternity. You must live in the present and make the most of what you have while you have it.
Tales of Destiny 2 Agency
Tales of Rebirth Change
Tales of Legendia Legends No matter how small you think your world is, there's far more to everything than you could ever imagine. And there exist people that live only to expand your world as you would for them.
Tales of the Abyss Origins Not one person is the same. We're changed not by our DNA, but how life hits us... and who's there to help us back up.
Tales of Innocence Accountability
Tales of Symphonia Harmony Even though people may come from different places or backgrounds with different views, they can all come together for the common good, no matter the sacrifices required to do so.
Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World Balance Every tough decision comes with some sort of balance or sacrifice.
Tales of Vesperia Justice Never mistake law for justice. Justice is an ideal, and law is a tool.
Tales of Hearts Bonds Some things in the world cannot be seen or even touched, they must be felt with the heart. Don't let the noise of others opinions drown out your own inner voice.
Tales of Graces Protection Time will march on, but not your past. There is always a future ahead of you.
Tales of Xillia Conviction Where life sets you doesn't control you; it just gives you the starting point for who you could be.
Tales of Xillia 2 Choice There is something beautiful about mortality. It makes our decisions mean more.
Tales of Zestiria Zeal The value of a life is not found in its length, but its depth. The goal is not to live forever, but to create something that will.
Tales of Berseria Purpose Within every soul dwells a dark and fearsome beast.. We cannot slay the monsters in the world until we have met the monsters within ourselves.
