Lloyd Irving is a playable character in the fighting video game, M.U.G.E.N Trilogy. He was confirmed along with many other characters who could have appeared in the Super Smash Bros. series on September 13, 2019. Katsuyuki Konishi (Japanese) and Scott Menville (English) provide the role for Lloyd Irving in this fighting game.
Lloyd Irving was created by Bandai Namco in order to provide a protagonist for Tales' fifth mothership title, Tales of Symphonia.
Lloyd's personality is of an irresponsible, and brash young man, but also a gentle idealist who wishes for peace in the world. Orphaned as a child, he was adopted and raised by a dwarf named Dirk, just outside the village of Iselia. Once but a simple country boy, Lloyd is thrusted out into a journey of epic proportions following a brutal attack on his village.
He uses skill and logic to make up for what he lacks in knowledge, which is often a joke throughout the series as he fails to answer various educational questions. He is generally idealistic, and tries to do what he believes is best for the worlds of Sylvarant and Tethe'alla. As the game goes on, Kratos compares Lloyd to Mithos, the game's antagonist, saying the only difference between them is that Lloyd is capable of acknowledging his own mistakes. Another character named Tiga also compares Lloyd to Mithos by saying he is idealistic and very dearly wants to save both worlds, but Lloyd denies that he is like Mithos and says he does not want to save the worlds Mithos' way, but in his own way without sacrifices.
Lloyd focuses on dealing melee physical damage, with concentrations in speed and combo building. Attacks such as Sonic Thrust and Sword Rain reflect his faster movements during battle, while sacrificing his damage output and durability, especially when compared to Presea Combatir. Like most swordsmen, his only ranged capabilities involve Demon Fang and related artes. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Lloyd can now use Blazing Tempest and Rising Phoenix as separate artes instead of altered artes.
