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.
As a costume
As a costume
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".
