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.

Origin[edit]

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]

A Mii Swordfighter dressed as Lloyd.

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.

Trivia[edit]

  • Although Lloyd Irving is a dual-blade warrior, the Mii Swordfighter continues to fight with only one blade- the other will always remain sheathed.
  • 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 obviously with the use of only one blade.
