Article on Wikipedia Lloyd Irving

Lloyd Irving (ロイド・アーヴィング, Lloyd Irving) is the protagonist of Tales of Symphonia, the fifth game in Namco's Tales series of RPGs.


Lloyd Irving serves as the main character from Tales of Symphonia for the GameCube and as a playable protagonist in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World for the Wii. He is also a guest character in Soulcalibur Legends for the Wii. Though a simple country boy in many respects, Lloyd is a gifted crafter with considerable knowledge on power-enhancing ExSpheres and Key Crests. He is also a talented swordsman with a preference for dual-wielding, and a capable and idealistic leader. He aids his childhood friend Collette, the Chosen of Regeneration, in her pilgrimage to save their world. He eventually becomes a key figure in a war of balance between two worlds, leading a quest to save them both.

In Super Smash Bros. 4[edit]

As a costume[edit]

Lloyd is the basis for a paid downloadable content costume for Mii Swordfighters. Nintendo also released a QR code for those who wish to have the exact Mii used in the costume's advertising.

In Super Smash Bros. Ultimate[edit]

As a costume[edit]

Lloyd returns as a Mii Swordfighter costume in the 10th wave of Mii costumes, alongside Kazuya. While his design is mostly the same, his hair is slightly shorter than it was in Smash 4 and his sword slashes produce orange trails instead of gray. He is also the final third-party Mii costume from Smash 4 to return in Ultimate.



  • Although Lloyd Irving is a dual-blade warrior, the Mii Swordfighter continues to fight with only one blade - the other will always remain sheathed. His reveal trailers make reference to this, often depicting the Mii with his costume with an additional Beam Sword.
  • Equipping a Swordfighter with Airborne Assault, Power Thrust and Blurring Blade will be a close approximation to Lloyd's Tempest, Sonic Thrust (Rising Falcon in the air) and Sword Rain moves, respectively - though with the use of only one blade.
  • The song used in Lloyd's reveal for both SSB4 and Ultimate is "Like a Glint of Light".
