A Spirit (精霊 Seirei?) is a being that represents some primal or divine force in the world. Often, they can be called forth by a summoner, and in this instance, they are referred to as Summon Spirits. They are also known as Craymels (晶霊 / クレーメル Shourei / Kureemeru?, "Crystal Spirit") led by the Greater Craymels (大晶霊 Dai Shourei?) in Tales of Eternia and Aggregate Sentiences (意識集合体 Ishiki Shuugotai?) in Tales of the Abyss.

Tales of Phantasia

Spirits are beings comprised of mana, sustained by the Great Tree Yggdrasill. Claus F. Lester researches the art of Summoning, which focuses on using jeweled rings to make pacts with the Spirits in order to summon them, allowing even those without elven blood to use magic. Cress Albane and Mint Adenade seek out Claus for his skill and magic, and much of the beginning of the story is spent on the quest to make a pact with Luna in order to use her power to help defeat Dhaos. A book in Claus's home in Euclid states Spirits are divided into Greater and Lesser Spirits. Claus makes pacts with the Greater Spirits, but there are Lesser Spirits beneath Luna, Aska, and Shadow. Claus not only learns to summon the Spirits of his world Aselia but also to summon the Spirits of Daemonium, a world connected to Aselia.

The Spirits in the game are as follows:

  • Martel, the Tree Spirit who watches over the Great Tree Yggdrasill. She is revered by people as the "Earth Goddess" in the nature worship-based religion predominant in Toltus.
  • Sylph, the Wind Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Opal Ring".
  • Undine, the Water Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Aquamarine Ring".
  • Efreet, the Fire Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Garnet Ring".
  • Gnome, the Earth Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Ruby Ring".
  • Maxwell, the Elemental Spirit and Lord of the Four Elements, who makes a pact with the "Turquoise Ring".
  • Luna, the Moon Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Moonstone Ring".
  • Shadow, the Dark Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Amethyst Ring".
  • Aska, the Light Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Topaz Ring".
  • Volt, the Lightning Spirit, who makes a pact with the "Sardonyx Ring".
  • Origin, the Spirit of All Things and King of the Spirits, who makes a pact with the "Diamond Ring".
  • Gremlin's Lair, hungry Spirits from Daemonium, who make a pact with the "Sapphire Ring".
  • Chameleon, beast Spirit from Daemonium, who makes a pact with the "Emerald Ring". Chameleon only appears in the Super Famicom and GameBoy Advance releases of the game.
  • Pluto, the King of Daemonium, who makes a pact with the "Emerald Ring" in most versions and with the "Lapis Lazuli Ring" in the Game Boy Advance version. Pluto appears in all of the Tales of Phantasia games except the original Super Famicom version.

Tales of Destiny

Appearing in the original PlayStation version of the game, Spirits are regulated to being summoned by consumable items termed ancient weapons in their descriptions.

The Spirits in this game are as follows:

Tales of Eternia

Craymels are the spirits within everything, comprising elemental energy in the world. By entrapping these Craymels within Craymel Cages, Craymel Mages can cast magic, Craymel Artes. Greater Craymels are the greatest manifestation of a certain Craymel, the pinnacle of that element. They can only enter a Craymel Cage through the "Parasol" device. The party in the game learn that the Greater Craymels are necessary in order to stop the collision of the two worlds of Inferia and Celestia, titled the Grand Fall. Meredy and Keele Zeibel are the Craymel Mages entrusted with the Greater Craymels.

Greater Craymels only speak the Melnics language, the language in which all Craymel Artes are cast as well as the native language of Celestia. The party uses "Orz Earrings" in order to understand Melnics. Futhermore, Greater Craymels are divided into three tiers: the Primary Craymels, who make up the basic elements of a world; the Governing Craymels, who unite groups of the Primary Craymels; and the Supreme Craymels, who are even more powerful than they.

The Greater Cramyels in this game are as follows:

  • Sylph, the Greater Craymel of Wind and one of the Primary Craymels of Inferia.
  • Undine, the Greater Craymel of Water and one of the Primary Craymels of Inferia.
  • Efreet, the Greater Craymel of Fire and one of the Primary Craymels of Inferia.
  • Rem, the Greater Craymel of Light and the Governing Craymel of Inferia.
  • Gnome, the Greater Craymel of Earth and one of the Primary Craymels of Celestia.
  • Volt, the Greater Craymel of Lightning and one of the Primary Craymels of Celestia.
  • Celsius, the Greater Craymel of Ice and one of the Primary Craymels of Celestia.
  • Shadow, the Greater Craymel of Darkness and the Governing Craymel of Celestia.
  • Maxwell, the Greater Craymel of Elemental and one of the Supreme Craymels.
  • Sekundes, the Greater Craymel of Time and one of the Supreme Craymels.

Tales of Destiny 2

Spirits are cameo appearances summoned in mystic artes by extending certain Advanced-Tier spells.

The Spirits in this game are as follows:

Tales of Symphonia

Summons Spirits are beings supported by mana from the Great Kharlan Tree. The original legend of the Regeneration states that when the Chosen wakes the goddess Martel, she will have the Summon Spirits to protect the world as well. The Summon Spirits actually do exist. It is the Summon Spirits with whom the hero Mithos Yggdrasill made pacts that hold the two worlds of Sylvarant and Tethe'alla apart. His pact with Origin forged the Eternal Sword, which gave him the power to split the worlds in the first place. Sheena Fujibayashi, a summoner from Mizuho, begins to annul these pacts to at first separate the worlds so that they would not vie for the same mana any longer, as it is the seals of the Summon Spirits which created the connection in the first place. She offers her own pacts in their place to do so.

As the party starts severing the mana links, however, the Great Seed which was protected by the seals weakened and began to draw mana into itself, going out of control and rampaging across Sylvarant. This is because uniting the two worlds is the Great Seed in the center, which was drawn upon equally by both worlds and maintaining balance. With the disruption of the process, the Seed goes out of control, and only a blast of mana from the Tethe'allan Spirits, as the Seed was infused with only the Sylvaranti Spirits' mana, calms it. In the end, when the new tree germinates, a new Spirit is created to guard: Martel, born from all those whose lives were sacrificed to the Great Kharlan Tree.

The Summon Spirits in this game are as follows:

  • Corrine, an artifical Summon Spirit created in Meltokio's Elemental Research Laboratory. After being killed protecting Sheena from an attack by Volt, he is reborn as Verius, the Summon Spirit of Heart.
  • Efreet, the Ruler of Hellfire, the Summon Spirit of Fire and one of the Sylvaranti Summon Spirits.
  • Undine, the Maiden of the Mist, the Summon Spirit of Water and one of the Sylvaranti Summon Spirits.
  • Sylph, the Heavenly Messengers, the Summon Spirit of Wind and collectively one of the Sylvaranti Summon Spirits.
  • Luna and Aska, the Light of the Heavens, the Summon Spirits of Light and Sylvaranti Summon Spirits.
  • Celsius, the Disciple of Everlasting Ice, the Summon Spirit of Ice and one of the Tethe'allan Summon Spirits.
  • Volt, the Hammer of Godly Thunder, the Summon Spirit of Lightning and one of the Tethe'allan Summon Spirits.
  • Gnome, the Servant of Mother Earth, the Summon Spirit of Earth and one of the Tethe'allan Summon Spirits.
  • Shadow, the Envoy from the Dark Abyss, the Summon Spirit of Darkness and one of the Tethe'allan Summon Spirits.
  • Origin, the King of the Summon Spirits, the Summon Spirit of All Things and he who forged the Eternal Sword.
  • Maxwell, the Ancient Ruler of the Elements, who keeps the city of Exire in the air.
  • Martel, the Spirit who guards the new World Tree.

Tales of Legendia

Summons Spirits appear as the end as a gift from Grune to help sustain life to the world. There are six of them, probably representing the game's six elements. The Summon Spirits periodically appear as balls of light to Grune, introducing themselves and lamenting the fact that Grune has lost her memory. They then enter Grune's urn in seed form. At the proper places, Grune then plants their seeds, which she makes bloom at the end of the game with the last of her power.

The Summon Spirits in this game are as follows:

  • Efreet, associated with the game's Fire element.
  • Celsius, associated with the game's Ice element.
  • Gnome, associated with the game's Earth element.
  • Volt, associated with the game's Lightning element.
  • Rem, associated with the game's Sea element, which has holy connotations in context with the game and whose element contains many traditionally Light-elemental spells.
  • Shadow, associated with the game's Curse element, which has dark connotations in context with the game and whose element contains many traditionally Dark-elemental spells.

Tales of the Abyss

Aggregate sentiences are what happen when a massive amount of a certain fonon, the fundamental particle in Auldrant, gather in one place, enough to gain a awareness. Their names are the basis of Auldrant's calendar system, which uses the names of the sentiences for days and months.

The aggregate sentiences in this game are as follows:

  • Shadow, the aggregate sentience of the First Fonon, the Fonon of Darkness.
  • Gnome, the aggregate sentience of the Second Fonon, the Fonon of Earth.
  • Sylph, the aggregate sentience of the Third Fonon, the Fonon of Wind.
  • Undine, the aggregate sentience of the Fourth Fonon, the Fonon of Water.
  • Efreet, the aggregate sentience of the Fifth Fonon, the Fonon of Fire.
    • While the calender system uses the name "Ifrit", there is an "Efreet" spear, though Ifrit is a viable alternative.
  • Rem, the aggregate sentience of the Sixth Fonon, the Fonon of Light.
  • Lorelei, the aggregate sentience of the Seventh Fonon, the Fonon of Sound.

Tales of Vesperia

Spirits are the result of putting apatheia of Entelexeia through the process of Spirit conversion, developed by Rita Mordio and using the power of the "Child of the Full Moon". Their existence is required to convert aer into mana, a vital role in Terca Lumieres as an excess of aer not only causes the world to go out of balance but also corrupts the Entelexeia charged with absorbing it into the world-threatening Adelphagos. To end the threat of the Adelphagos, Yuri Lowell and his friends turn the world's blastia cores as well as the Adelphagos itself into spirits.

The main Spirits in this game are as follows:

  • Undine, the Ruler of the Waters and Spirit of Water, reborn from the Entelexeia Belius.
  • Efreet, the Blazing One and Spirit of Fire, reborn from the Entelexeia Phaeroh.
  • Gnome, the Spreader of Roots and Spirit of Earth, reborn from the Entelexeia Gusios.
  • Sylph, the Binder of Winds and Spirit of Wind, reborn from the Entelexeia Khroma.

Tales of Graces

The three Spirits in the game are the servants of the three Chroma Dragons who in turn serve Solomus. They are each associated with one of the three main eleth types that the valkines cryas regulate. After Pascal touches a piece of cryas heavily imbued with a particular eleth, the Spirits respond to her blood and form a pact with her, allowing her to summon them in battle.

The Spirits in this game are:

  • Grim Sylphie, the Emerald Messenger associated with wind eleth
  • Cyandine, the Sapphire Maiden associated with water eleth
  • Bloodflamme, the Ruby Warden associated with fire eleth

Tales of Xillia

Spirits are, for the most part, invisible and intangible beings who share the world with humans, divided into two classes into the generic Lesser Spirits and the Great Spirits who hold dominion over some aspect of the world. By offering the mana from their mana lobes, humans can form contracts with these spirits to perform artes in a process known as spirit channeling (精霊術 seireijutsu?). 500 years prior to the game, Professor Howe theorized the existence of spirits through his Howe's Egg Principle, which was later proven true with the discovery of physically manifested spirits, ushering in the age of spirits artes in Rieze Maxia.

2000 years prior to the game, however, the development of spyrix technology threatened the existence of the world, as it allowed almost instant use of spirit artes without dependence on the strength of the user. This ease of use came at the cost of killing spirits. As the existence of spirits was not believed despite their vital nature, the Lord of Spirits Maxwell's warnings and attempts to curb spyrix usage fell on deaf ears. He responded by taking his chosen few humans into Rieze Maxia and creating the schism to seal it off from the wider Elympios, planning on releasing it once the humans who depended on spyrix died off.

During the events of the game, the two worlds come into contact and clash. After all is said and done, the schism is dispelled in order to allow humanity several more years to solve their energy crisis. The party throws their support behind the development of spyrite technology, which revives spirits from spirit fossils to perform the same functions as spyrix without killing spirits.

The game features following Great Spirits:

  • Maxwell, the Lord of Spirits
  • Efreet, the Great Spirit of Fire
  • Undine, the Great Spirit of Water
  • Sylph, the Great Spirit of Wind
  • Gnome, the Great Spirit of Earth
  • Muzét, a Great Spirit with dominion over dimensions
  • Celsius, the Great Spirit of Ice revived through spyrite technology
  • Volt, the Great Spirit of Lightning revived through spyrite technology

Tales of Xillia 2

The sequel to Tales of Xillia expands on the history of Spirits as well as introduces new ones. Maxwell is revealed to be one of the three Primordial Spirits who set up Origin's Trial to test the worthiness of humanity.

In addition to the the return of the Great Spirits from the first installment, the new Great Spirits are as follows:

  • Chronos, the Great Spirit of Time and the guardian of the Land of Canaan
  • Origin, the Great Spirit of the Void
  • Aska, the Great Spirit of Light
  • Shadow, the Great Spirit of Darkness
  • Pluto, the Ruler of the Underworld

Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World

Summon Spirits return in this game, though they as a group are not significant to the plot. Rather, only a few particular Spirits are focused on, though the places where the Centurions' cores are located are generally in the same places as their element's Summon Spirit was found in Tales of Symphonia, as Tenebrae explains that the places were the altars of the Centurions, which Cruxis repurposed as seals. Though Sheena retains the ability to summon them, she is unable to use their power in battle and only does so in cutscenes. The game's focus is primarily of a new Summon Spirit, Ratatosk, the "Lord of All Monsters", who sealed away the demons of Niflheim, and is the Summon Spirit of the Great Kharlan Tree.

The Summon Spirits in this game are as follows:

  • Ratatosk, the Lord of All Monsters and the Summon Spirit of the now deceased Great Kharlan Tree. He resides in the Ginnungagap and is responsible for sealing away the demons of Niflheim. Underneath him are eight Centurions, each representing one of the eight elements of the game.
  • Martel, the Summon Spirit of the World Tree, still forming her power base with the new tree.
  • Verius, the Summon Spirit of Heart, found in the Martel Temple and whose past life as Corrine, an artificial Summon Spirit, is alluded to.
  • Efreet, the Summon Spirit of Fire, whose home in the Triet Ruins is where the Ignis core is found.
  • Undine, the Summon Spirit of Water, summoned in a scene at the hot springs. It can be inferred that, had Aqua not already been awake, her core would have been found at the Thoda Geyser, Undine's home.
  • Sylph, the Summon Spirit of Wind, whose home in the Balacruf Mausoleum is where the Ventus core is found.
  • Luna and Aska, the Summon Spirits of Light, whose home in the Tower of Mana is connected to the Lake Sinoa Cave, where the Lumen core is found.
  • Celsius, the Summon Spirit of Ice, whose home in the Temple of Ice is where the Glacies core is found. Celsius is also summoned by Sheena to protect the group in one scene.
  • Volt, the Summon Spirit of Lightning, whose home in the Temple of Lightning is where the Tonitrus core is found.
  • Gnome, the Summon Spirit of Earth, whose home in the Temple of Earth is where the Solum core was supposed to be.
  • Shadow, the Summon Spirit of Darkness, whose home in the Temple of Darkness is where the Tenebrae core is found.

Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 2

The Spirit of Ice Celsius is counted among the playable characters for the game and is the guardian of Garret Village. Additionally, the party can collect Spirit Stones by gathering the Fragments of Spirits within each dungeon or buying them with Grade on the Van Eltia. Once the Summon Spirit Stones are complete, they can be used to unlock a special green chest in that dungeon after a sliding minigame. For those Spirits who appeared in Tales of Symphonia, they appear in that incarnation on the Spirit Stones.

The Spirits in this game are as follows:
