     ==============                                                      ========
    | Introduction |                                                    | [INTR] |
    | I absolutely love the amount of yelling, screaming and conversations that  |
    | appear in Tales of series games. I think that Abyss has the widest array   |
    | of battle conversations in any Tales of game released to date. There's     |
    | plenty to quote so that's why I made this FAQ. I've seen others doing the  |
    | same, but I noticed that there was a lot that was being misspelled, quoted |
    | to the wrong character and general mistakes that happen when you try to do |
    | it by memory. Hopefully this will clear up any sort of errors and we can   |
    | all quote to our heart's content. ^.^ The only thing I wish that I could   |
    | do is properly convey the tone in which they say these lines. Even if they |
    | repeat, they do happen to say it in a different way. I don't explain how   |
    | to get all the quotes in this guide but many are very obvious once you     |
    | read them.                                                                 |
     =========================                                           ========
    | General Battle (Heroes) |                                         | [BH00] |
    | I didn't bother transcribing the grunts because...they're grunts. Their    |
    | level up battle endings are in here as well since they aren't really       |
    | battle endings. The group section has the small conversations they have.   |
    | Luke (Long Hair) [BH01] |
       "No way!"
       "Damn you're annoying!"
       "Take this!"
       "You're gonna pay!"
       "Didn't make it!"
       "Don't get in my way!"
       "About time."
       "Check this out!"
       "This isn't good!"
       "I'll pass on dying here, thanks."
       "Didn't work!"
       "Found your weakness!"
       "See ya!"
       "Come on already!"
       "Who's next?"
       "Using this!"
       "Whaddya mean I can't?!"
       "How do ya like this?"
       "That's good!"
       "Follow me!"
       "Like always!"
       "Move, move!"
       "Kinda busy here!"
    | Luke (Short Hair) [BH02] |
       "No way!"
       "Bring it on!"
       "Take this!"
       "So uncool..."
       "You're gonna pay!"
       "Didn't make it!"
       "Watch yourself!"
       "Thanks for the help."
       "Leave it to me!"
       "Check this out!"
       "I'm so dead..."
       "We're not doing too well..."
       "Didn't work!"
       "Found your weakness!"
       "See ya!"
       "Come on already!"
       "Who's next?"
       "Using this!"
       "Whaddya mean I can't?!"
       "How do you like this?"
       "That's good!"
       "Follow me!"
       "Like always!"
       "Move, move!"
       "Arcane arte!"
       "This is it!"
       "Take this!"
       "Get outta here!"
       "I just keep getting better!"
       "Kinda busy here!"
    | Tear [BH03] |
       "That's enough!"
       "Prepare to die."
       "How could this..."
       "I didn't make it..."
       "Watch out!"
       "Thank you!"
       "How do you like this?"
       "I'm not done yet."
       "We should regroup."
       "That didn't work!"
       "Your weak spot!"
       "We're leaving!"
       "I'll show you no mercy."
       "Using this!"
       "I won't!"
       "Just as before!"
       "Use that plan!"
       "Changing plans!"
       "New plan!"
       "You okay?"
    | Jade [BH04] |
       "Well done..."
       "No way!"
       "Prepare yourself!"
       "I...misjudged you..."
       "Enough of this!"
       "I am to blame..."
       "I wasn't in time..."
       "This will help."
       "Oh what a bother."
       "Did that help?"
       "Oh, thank you."
       "Sorry for the trouble."
       "Oh very well."
       "How do you like this?"
       "This is not good."
       "Seems we're losing."
       "That didn't work."
       "That's your weakness."
       "We should withdraw."
       "Whenever you're ready."
       "May I?"
       "Not now."
       "Good, that's enough!"
       "Just as ordered!"
       "Changing strategy!"
       "How's this?"
       "Can you take this?"
       "Take this!"
    | Anise [BH05] |
       "Get 'em!"
       "No way!"
       "I'm bursting with fonons!"
       "This'll hurt!"
       "I'll get you for that!"
       "Oh no..."
       "Oops! Didn't make it..."
       "Use this!"
       "You okay?"
       "I'm back!"
       "Got it!"
       "I'm in trouble here!"
       "Come on, we're gonna lose!"
       "That didn't work!"
       "Got your weak spot!"
       "Buh bye!"
       "Come on, geez!"
       "Done with that one!"
       "Using this!"
       "I can't use it?"
       "Check this out!"
       "That's enough!"
       "Let's go!"
       "Switching strategy!"
       "Just like we talked about!"
       "Take that!"
       "Keep it up!"
       "Think I grew a little!"
       "Feeling kind of dizzy..."
       "I'll get you for that!"
       "Humph! Too late."
       "You trying to kill me?"
       "No way..."
       "Come on, wimps!"
       "I can't right now!"
       "Colonel, you're so cool!"
    | Guy [BH06] |
       "No way!"
       "Wanna see how strong I really am?"
       "Prepare yourself!"
       "I screwed up..."
       "Not bad."
       "I didn't make it..."
       "Here, catch!"
       "Feel better?"
       "Sorry, thanks!"
       "Thanks. That helped."
       "Right, I'm on it."
       "Let's try a new arte!"
       "I'm not doing too well."
       "We have to regroup!"
       "Guess that didn't work!"
       "Looks like that worked!"
       "All right, run!"
       "I guess you don't wanna fight."
       "Guess you're done!"
       "Can I?"
       "I guess not."
       "Watch closely."
       "Forget what I said!"
       "All right, let's do it!"
       "Come on, hurry up!"
       "As we planned!"
       "You can't win!"
       "What's wrong?"
    | Natalia [BH07] |
       "How dare you!"
       "Leave it to me!"
       "Take this!"
       "I have...failed..."
       "No more!"
       "How could this happen?"
       "I apologize."
       "Take heed!"
       "That helps greatly!"
       "Thank you."
       "Enlightened anew!"
       "At this rate...!"
       "We're in danger!"
       "Did that not work?"
       "That seemed effective!"
       "Oh my, how rude!"
       "Another slain!"
       "May I use this?"
       "I won't use it."
       "Prepare yourself!"
       "That will suffice!"
       "Follow me!"
       "We're changing strategy!"
       "Follow your orders!"
       "Brace yourself!"
       "There's no escape!"
       "That's enough!"
       "I've found new strength!"
       "I can't move!"
    | Asch [BH08] |
       "That's enough!"
       "Take this!"
       "How could I..."
       "I'll kill you!"
       "He's gone."
       "How could I do that?"
       "This'll help."
       "You're being a bother."
       "What a nuisance."
       "Don't expect any thanks."
       "Can you take this?"
       "How could I get like this?"
       "Regroup if you don't want to die!"
       "That didn't work?"
       "Aw, you didn't like that!"
       "I don't have time for this."
       "You idiot!"
       "How pathetic!"
       "This is mine!"
       "I won't!"

    | Personally, I really like the group openings more than the solo ones.      |
    | Luke [BS01] |
       "I'll destroy you!"
       "Let's go!"
       "You're dead!"
    | Tear [BS02] |
       "Let's go!"
    | Jade [BS03] |
       "Hmm, so you want to fight?"
       "Shall we?"
       "We have no choice."
    | Anise [BS04] |
       "Get 'em!"
       "Gotta do what you gotta do!"
       "Let's do this!"
    | Guy [BS05] |
       "All right, let's go!"
       "Don't get sloppy!"
       "Prepare yourself!"
    | Natalia [BS06] |
       "I come for you!"
       "I won't hold back!"
       "Ready everyone?"
    | Asch [BS07] |
       "A pitiful excuse for a fight!"
       "Come on, let's go!"
       "Guess you wanna die!"
    | Group [BS08] |
    ANISE: "Oh man, this looks tough!"
     JADE: "Come on, the worst that could happen is we all die."
      GUY: "We gotta do what we gotta do."
       TEAR: "Be careful, they're strong."
       LUKE: "I know, I know!"
    NATALIA: "We can't take this lightly."
        GUY: "This is not good."
    NATALIA: "Don't face adversity head on."
       LUKE: "There's no way we're losing."
     LUKE: "Damn these things are annoying!"
     JADE: "You should feel right at home."
    ANISE: "Seriously."
    NATALIA: "There's so many!"
       TEAR: "Don't worry about their numbers."
        GUY: "Just take them out one at a time."
      GUY: "We're outnumbered!"
    ANISE: "We just gotta squash them!"
     TEAR: "All they have is their numbers, we can win this."
    LUKE: "Heh, these guys are wimps."
     GUY: "They'll still beat you if your guard's down."
    TEAR: "Don't get cocky!"
    JADE: "This looks like fun."
    TEAR: "I won't allow carelessness."
    LUKE: "That's right."
      ANISE: "Piece of cake!"
    NATALIA: "Indeed. Let's get this over with."
        GUY: "All right, let's go."
      ANISE: "Man, we're all messed up!"
       LUKE: "Whose fault is that?"
    NATALIA: "Complain later, here they come!"
    TEAR: "Our formation!"
    JADE: "Hahaha...This is terrible!"
     GUY: "Like you really mean it."

    | Another case where I prefer the group portion rather than the solo.        |
    | Nothing compares to actually hearing them, though.                         |
    | Luke [BE01] |
       "Agent of justice, Abyss Red!"
       "Guess that does it."
       "Guess we won."
       "Hmph! Get outta my face!"
       "I win, you lose, we're done."
       "If you get in my way then I have no choice."
       "I'll do whatever it takes."
       "Just...stay dead."
       "N-no more..."
       "That took too long."
       "That's your best?"
       "Too easy!"
       "We're done here."
       "You should pick your fights better."
    | Tear [BE02] |
       "Farewell. Rest in peace."
       "Fool! The slightest opening brings death."
       "How could it go that badly..."
       "I feel nothing for my enemy."
       "I'm not good at holding back."
       "Is everyone okay?"
       "It's over!"
       "One must fight to live."
       "That was acceptable."
       "We're all right."
    | Jade [BE03] |
       "No, no, no. You really should value your life more."
       "Oh, are you done fighting already?"
       "Oh, I'm so sorry! You wanted me to go easy."
       "Oh, we're still alive..."
       "Rest in peace."
       "Shall we be on our way?"
       "That wasn't too bad."
       "Well, well...wasn't that fun."
       "Well, you did your best."
    | Anise [BE04] |
       "All right! We won!"

    Van's Tutorial
     VAN: "Are you ready, Luke? We'll start with the basics."
    LUKE: "Yes, Master."
     VAN: "First, movement. Move forward or back by pushing the left stick left
           or right. Try it. Press the menu button when you're ready to go on.
           Space between you and your enemy is important in battle. Watch the
           conditions and respond. ...Well, I actually doubt there will ever be
           any need for you to fight."
    LUKE: "Humph. I wanna show off some cool moves outside."
     VAN: "This is not something for you to show off. Next, attacks. Perform
           normal attacks with the attack button. Normal attacks will change when
           combined with the left stick. Slash with the attack button. Press it
           and move the left stick left or right to slash up. Press it and move
           the left stick up to attack enemies in the air. Attack a wide area by
           moving the left stick down and pressing the attack button. ...That
           about covers it. Now then, attack that dummy there just as you always
    LUKE: "A training dummy again? Oh, all right..."
     VAN: "Perform a normal attack with the attack button and press the menu
           button to go on. If faced with enemies in the air or surrounding you,
           you will need to change as the situation demands. Never forget that.
           That's all for basic attacks. We'll move onto defense next."
    LUKE: "You know, Master?"
     VAN: "What?"
    LUKE: "I've always wondered, can't I just take out an enemy before it can
     VAN: "Are you saying you could defeat me, Luke?"
    LUKE: "Uh... No, I just...."
     VAN: "So you understand that defense is important. That dummy will attack at
           regular intervals. Try to defend with the guard button."
    LUKE: "Yeah, yeah. I know."
     VAN: "Good. Defense is very important in battle. You will learn new
           defensive skills as you battle more. Learn them well."
    LUKE: "...Yes, sir."
     VAN: "Finally, we'll move on to artes. Are you ready, Luke?"
    LUKE: "I've been waiting for this! I'm ready anytime you are!"
     VAN: "Perform artes with the arte button. I taught you Fang Blade. Do you
    LUKE: "Yes, Master."
     VAN: "Good. Then try it. Excellent. You've learned it well. That arte is
           yours to use."
    LUKE: "All right! Thank you, Master!"
     VAN: "You can perform combos by combining artes with normal attacks."
    LUKE: "Cool..."
     VAN: "All right. This is the end. Use the attack button and arte button to
           perform a combo of four hits or more."
    LUKE: "Yes, Master!"
     VAN: "Good work. Oh, you will probably learn new artes as you gain more
           experience in battle. You can set them in the Artes menu. Then you can
           combine the left stick with the arte button to perform a variety of
           artes. Remember that."
    LUKE: "New artes..."
    Tear's Tutorial
    LUKE: "What the hell?!"
    TEAR: "Luke, relax."
    LUKE: "How the hell am I supposed to relax?!"
    TEAR: "When faced with multiple enemies, you can change which one you target.
           Change your target by holding down the target button and moving the
           left stick. Try to target the enemy in the rear. Good. You can also
           target the closest enemy by quickly pressing the target button. Try

           ally. Adjust your target as the situation needs."

    Liger Queen - Cheagle Woods
    LUKE: "Hey, what the hell ! It's not dying!"

    LUKE: "So...so do something!"
    JADE: "Allow me."
    TEAR: "Who are you?"
    JADE: "Leave the inquiry for later. I'll use fonic artes to take care of
           this. You make sure I have time to cast."
    LUKE: "You can't order me--"

    Jade's Tutorial
    JADE: "Each fonon has one of six elemental attributes. But you already knew
           that, didn't you."
    LUKE: "Uh, o-of course. Uh, earth, water, fire, wind, light and shadow. Hah!
           I told you I knew them."
    JADE: "Very good. Some monsters are weak against certain fonons. Please, keep
           that in mind. Now, moving on to fields of fonons. A field of fonons is
           a place with a concentration of fonons. It's an area of power made by
           gathering fonons in one location. When you use an elemental attack,
           you will generate a field of fonons in that spot. I imagine it would
           be best to try it once. Tear, a field of fonons if you would."
    TEAR: "Understood."
    JADE: "This is a field of fonons. Some fields of fonons have no colour while
           others have the colour of their element. It depends upon the level of
           the element. Until the fonons reach a certain level, the fields of
           fonons will be colourless. Like this field of fonons. Fields of fonons
           in this state have no effect. You don't really need to pay attention
           to them."
    TEAR: "Understand?"
    LUKE: "Uh, h-hey! Don't treat me like an idiot!"
    JADE: "Next, I'll explain the fields of fonons with colour. Tear, if you
    TEAR: "Right."
    JADE: "Some fields of fonons have the colour of their element, as you see
           here. Earth is yellow, water is blue, fire is red, wind is green and
           so on. In order to change a field of fonons' colour, you must use
           elemental attacks to amass a certain level of fonons. As you generate
           fields of fonons of the same element, the level of fonons will
    LUKE: "So I just have to do a lot of attacks with the same element, right?"
    TEAR: "Well, speaking simply..."
    LUKE: "So speak simply. And what happens when the colour changes?"
    JADE: "Ah, yes. Please, step into the field of fonons."
    LUKE: "I'm in. Is this good?"
    JADE: "Fine. Now, when you use certain artes they will change to more
           powerful artes. Of course, the element for the field of fonons has to
           be compatible with the arte. Why don't we try it. Face that monster
           and use the arte button to perform an arte."
    LUKE: "Seriously? Whoa! That was cool!"
    JADE: "You will have a much better advantage in battle if you can use fields
           of fonons well. Learn to use them."
    LUKE: "Wow. Yeah, I'll try them out."
    JADE: "Now then, let's take care of the remaining monsters."

    NEBILIM: "You children never shut up! Fall before me and cry out in pain!
              Farewell! Die for me!"

    | Unused Lines |                                                    | [UL00] |
    | These are lines that I found that don't get used within the game. It's     |
    | interesting to point out that they are all dubbed in English.              |
    Anise - Artes
    I'm imagining Valkyrie Saber belonged with the Warrior Maiden doll. I still
    don't know why they'd remove it, though.
       "Fatal strike! Valkyrie Saber!"
       "Dragon Rampage!"
       "Fang Shot!"
    Guy - Mystic Artes
    This line seemed like it belonged with the Brilliant Overlord mystic arte but
    remained unused.
       "Behold its splendor!"
    Natalia - Artes
    I...am at a loss as to why they removed this.
       "Behold this Lanvalderian arte! Imperial Raid!"
    Asch - Artes
       "Falling Dragon!"
       "Ravaging Hell!"
    Asch - Mystic Artes
    Apparently also found as stray data in the Japanese version of Tales of the
    Abyss, Asch's Binding Doom wasn't implemented over here even though all the
    others got their secondary mystic artes.
       "I'm done playing! Binding Doom! Now die! The weak should stay back!"
    Van - Mystic Artes
       "This world ends now! As do you! Majestic Apocalypse!"
    Sync - Mystic Artes
    Much like Guy, this was a stray line that seemed to go with Akashic Torment.
    They opted for a repeat of the "Now you die!" line instead.
       "You're dead!"
    Dist - Mystic Artes
    Dist's D-Buster was also stray data on the Japanese version of Tales of the
    Abyss, like Asch's Binding Doom. Unfortunately, like Binding Doom, D-Buster
    will never see the light of day.
       "Behold this arte of the Rose! You will rue this day! D-Buster!"
    Van's Tutorial
    This was an unusual find. Some of these lines are mirrors of what appears
    after he tells you what to do (when the controls appear again). A great
    showing of redundancy.
    VAN: "First, movement. Move forward and back by pressing left or right."
    VAN: "Move with the left stick and press the menu button to go on."
    VAN: "Press the menu button to go on."
    VAN: "Normal attacks will change depending on the combination."
    VAN: "Slash with the attack button. Press it and move up to slash up. Press it
          and move left or right to attack enemies in the air."
    VAN: "Attack a wide area by moving the stick down and pressing the attack
          button. That about covers it."
    VAN: "Defend with the guard button."
    VAN: "Do an arte with the arte button."
    VAN: "Use the attack button and arte button to do a combo of four hits or
    VAN: "Then you can combine them to perform a variety of artes. Remember that."
    Tear's Tutorial
    Like brother, like sister? >.> Tear's tutorial suffers from the same
    redundancy that Van's does. Though it's not as bad, I can't imagine what they
    were thinking when they made it.
    TEAR: "Change your target by holding down the target button and moving the
           left stick. Try to target the rear enemy."
    TEAR: "Use the target button and left stick."
    TEAR: "Combine it with the target button."
    TEAR: "Tap the target button."
