Ludger Grabs First Place In The 2014 (7th) Tales of Series Popularity Ranking Poll Results (UPDATED)

UPDATE: June 03, 2014: There has been some confusion on the official results since the initial website results and the ones shown at Tales of Festival did not match. The Tales Channel + website finally updated today with what seems to be the final list. Names that changed ranking are with an asterisk.

The results of the 2014 or 7th Tales of Series Official Popularity Ranking Poll have just been announced at the Tales of Festival 2014!

First place in the Character Ranking belongs to...

  1. Ludger Will Kresnik (Tales of Xillia 2)
  2. Luke fon Fabre (Tales of the Abyss)
  3. Jude Mathis (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)
  4. Asbel Lhant (Tales of Graces)
  5. Judas (Tales of Destiny 2)
  6. Raven (Tales of Vesperia)
  7. Flynn Scifo (Tales of Vesperia)
  8. Emil Castagnier (Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World)*
  9. Lloyd Irving (Tales of Symphonia)*
  10. Kratos Aurion (Tales of Symphonia)
  11. Zelos Wilder (Tales of Symphonia)*
  12. Guy Cecil (Tales of the Abyss)*
  13. Rita Mordio (Tales of Vesperia)*
  14. Jade Curtiss (Tales of the Abyss)*
  15. Milla Maxwell (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)*
  16. Alvin (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)*
  17. Julius Will Kresnik (Tales of Xillia 2)
  18. Spada Belforma (Tales of Innocence)
  19. Sophie (Tales of Graces)
  20. Reala (Tales of Destiny 2)
  21. Reid Hershel (Tales of Eternia)
  22. Leia Rolando (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)
  23. Estelle (Tales of Vesperia)*
  24. Cheria Barnes (Tales of Graces)*
  25. Kongwai Tao (Tales of Innocence R)
  26. Colette Brunel (Tales of Symphonia)
  27. Gaius (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)
  28. Richard (Tales of Graces)
  29. Elize Lutus (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)
  30. Tear Grants (Tales of the Abyss)*

It seems Ludger takes first place this time around. Note that there is still some confusion between ranks #8, #9 and #30. During TalesFes, #8 was Emil and #9 was Lloyd, and #30 was Tear, not Cless. But the official site states Lloyd as #8, Emil as #9 and #30 as Cless. Hopefully this'll be cleared up soon. For now, we'll follow the website.

*Note that since both Yuri Lowell (Tales of Vesperia) and Leon Magnus (Tales of Destiny) have already been given the Hall of Fame status last Tales of Festival 2013, they were no longer allowed to be voted for, hence they're not in this list.

And for the Mascot Ranking:

  1. Repede (Tales of Vesperia)
  2. Rollo/Lulu (Tales of Xillia 2)
  3. Mieu (Tales of the Abyss)
  4. Teepo (Tales of Xillia)
  5. Quickie (Tales of Eternia)
  6. Tokunaga (Tales of the Abyss)
  7. Noishe (Tales of Symphonia)
  8. Quppo, Pippo and Poppo - The Oresoren (Tales of Legendia)
  9. Viva-kun
  10. Tenebrae (Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World)

As expected, Repede takes first place! But then, who can beat a mascot character that can fight, right?

The next poll result was for the Gap Characters. Roughly speaking, these are the characters wherein what you see is different from their actual personality, making them more appealing, in that sense. The top belongs to...

  1. Raven (Tales of Vesperia)
  2. Emil Castagnier (Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World)
  3. Luke fon Fabre (Tales of the Abyss)
  4. Gaius (Tales of Xillia 1 and 2)
  5. Zelos Wilder (Tales of Symphonia)
