A ToS Comic :SPOILERS: by ojamajodoremidokkan A ToS Comic :SPOILERS: by ojamajodoremidokkan
I put spoilers there coz it shows a character/enemy that new gamers might not know! Or any gamers who still haven't finished the game! xD ANYWAY, the dark haired cutie is Kratos and the blonde haired kid is Mithos!
If any of yous have seen my Tales of Symphonia Chibi sketches, this comic is based on "THE IDEA" - The one where Kratos thought of using a life bottle instead of getting many chosens to be a vessel for Martel XDDD

LIFE BOTTLE - {For anyone who hasn't played ToS and has no idea what the hell Im talking about} Life bottles are items in ToS that ressurrect fallen members in your party during battle.

Seriously...why couldn't Mithos just use a Life bottle? XDDDD

Well here's some answers that I've thought of...

* Maybe during the Ancient Kharlan War, Life bottles weren't..uh...invented yet XD
* Since half elves were discriminated in Sylvarant/Tethe'alla, Mithos wasn't allowed to buy any items from the shops {NOTE: Mithos is a half elf X3}
* Mithos ran out of money {Although Life Bottles are cheap in the game...}
* Mithos didn't know what life bottles were. XD

ANYWAY, hope ya enjoy the comic! All drawn with a mouse on Photoshop...=D

Kratos Aurion and Mithos are (c) to Kosuke Fujishima, NAMCO LTD., Tales of Symphonia

First off this is funny

Score: Kratos 1 || Mithos 0

Dare I say it Mithos got "schooled"

Second if you want to know why they couldn't just "buy a life bottle" there are two extremely good explanations

Explanation #1: Like with Pokemon, unless all of the characters in your party lose all of their health they aren't dead they're just severly unconscious (that's not to say your pokemon die when they all faint) but I'm saying that unlike Fire Emblem where if you lose a character it's gone for good (death) in other RPGs your character is technically Knocked out or unconscious hence why you can restore their hp with items or using reviving spells. However, if you lose everyone then technically they'll all stay unconscious and become monster food I guess. So because Martel was actual dead they couldn't use something as simple as a life bottle.

Explanation #2: Unlike the last explanation this one is much simpler. Even if Life bottles could bring back the dead that wasn't Martel's only problem she was a soul separated from her body only existing within her Cruxis Crystal I think you're going to need something a little more complex to fix that.

Warrior536 Featured By Owner Jun 16, 2009
life potions dont bring back the dead. it just heal your teammates from being incouncious due to too much hits taken.

Kratos has good ideas... =D

Great comic! ^^
Random2U Featured By Owner Jan 6, 2009
So true, why can't they? And why can't they just give Pietro a pancea bottle, or that other one that cures curse, I think it's a miracle potion or something. Or why can't they let him die than give him a life bottle? Why doesn't Kratos heal himself during battle with him? And how do they explain the sudden appearance of gald if you choose to keep it in your replay? Or the titles in the replay?
...Sorry, couldn't help myself.
I uber love it, it's so faved!

lol, it rocks but also poses a good question!! you missed a point out too!
- they'd be no game if that happened! lol
Pyrinea Featured By Owner Feb 26, 2007
-jumps and huggles Mithos to death- A good comic worth reading! o3o~! By the way...


"* Since half elves were discriminated in Sylvarant/Tethe'alla, Mithos wasn't allowed to buy any items from the shops {NOTE: Mithos is a half elf X3}"

Then why not Kratos? He's a human so he could just walk up to any store and like, flirt with the clerksman [If the person was a girl. Or boy. Who knows, he could swing either way if he didn't meet Anna], get some kinda discount and buy a Life Bottle! But that was very funny. Now that I think about it... why didn't he just buy one? -snickers- Oh boy, Mithos, that dolt. Cute. o3o~
EienOfDark Featured By Owner Feb 24, 2007
Life bottles not existing yet seems plausible, but also think this; when in battle and your character dies, he doesnt really *die*, its not like Fire Emblem, they're just...."fainted", similar to how it works in the pokemon games. So following that idea, life bottles dont resurrect people, they simply replenish their energy :) or something. Maybe I'm thinking too much. :P

Oh man.... poor Mithos.....

Kratos is adorable in this. XD

Good job.
EVA-Kirby Featured By Owner Jun 23, 2006
Ugh, seriously. The greatest hero in the Kharlan War, who was able to do the impossible, and he didn't even bother using a Life Bottle to revive his sister? Pitiful...
Course, if he had, we wouldn't have a game now, now would we? =P
Pretty funny, actually.

XD Not a spoiler for me; I played it like 3 times... I love the little "surprised Mithos" face
Spoonzmeister Featured By Owner May 29, 2006
I thought that Life Bottles could only revive KOed people and not totally dead people. That's my theory anyway. Yup. Still got a chuckle or two outta me.


Okay, TWENTY chuckles or so!
MasterRob Featured By Owner Feb 27, 2006
Hehheh. Yeah, maybe they didn't use a Life Bottle on Martel because they knew it might ruin the plot, or because they're too stupid. Ha!

Heeee...that's too funny and a very good question too!:)

shinneth Featured By Owner Jun 6, 2005  Hobbyist Digital Artist
This so reminds me of a fanart with a similar following~ Though it was Final Fantasy VII, with Tifa asking Cloud why he didn't use a Phoenix Down on Aeris instead of dumping her corpse in the lake like he did.... XD Though this is a lot more funny because it's so drawn-out. Mithos is used to it the HARD way~!!

Theory #2 looks really plausible, though. Poor half-elves!
