Gammer10Added by Gammer10
Sophie (ソフィ Sofi) is the main heroine of Tales of Graces, and is the second playable character of the installment to be introduced to ACS. She was first seen by the young Asbel Lhant and Hubert Ozwell on top of a cliff. She had lost her memories and does not know who she is at first and why she was there. Adoring the field of purple flowers nearby, Asbel Lhant named her after the same flower and became very close friends with her.

Sophie's fighting style includes hand-to-hand martial arts combat with the use of bracers and many Burst Artes, the themes of which are lifted from the companions she had in Tales of Graces. Except for her HP, she has very good overall stats in ACS. As in Tales of Graces, Sophie can switch between two fighting styles Step and Dash. The mode in which she is in determines how she navigates the arena. She can also use the power of Lambda in the form of her Accelerate Mode: High Boost.

Sophie is generally easy to use but she can be very challenging to veteran players who want to execute her long and powerful combos.

  • Sophie is one of the two characters in ACS capable of using Accel Mode, the other being Asbel Lhant.
    • When in Accel Mode, Sophie will be enveloped by a purple light that constantly rotates around her.
    • When in Accel Mode, the cut-in for Sophie's Blast Calibers is replaced with the one from Tales of Graces f.
  • Whenever Sophie and Asbel Lhant battle each other, the two will converce shortly before fighting.
    • If Sophie wins, Malik Caesars will appear to add his thoughts to the conversation.
    • If Asbel Lhant wins, he will ask if Sophie is ok after the battle.

General Tips & UsageEdit

  • Sophie has above average stats (damage output, movement speed, jump height) except for her HP and dash length which is considered average.
  • Sophie has an average defense against Guard Break.
  • Sophie receives 10% less damage from All Elemental Attacks besides Darkness and 20% less damage from Dark Elemental Attacks. (Please refer to this page for more information on ACS Elements).
  • Unique to Sophie alone, she can switch between two movement styles: Step and Dash.
    • At the start of any battle, Sophie will always be at Dash Mode. If you hold ↑ before the battle starts, Sophie will be in Step Mode instead and she will receive her Sense Flare physical attack buff. This will not work when she is faced against Asbel Lhant.
    • Sophie can freely switch between Step and Dash Modes by using Ataraxia (Pressing D).
    • When in Step Mode, instead of jumping and dashing, Sophie will be able to use different sidesteps.
      • All forms of sidesteps costs 1 CC to execute.
      • Sophie will be invulnerable from attacks while performing a sidestep.
      • Forward Sidestepping ( → → ) will allow you to pass through enemies.
      • Backward Sidestepping ( ← ← ) has the same range with Sophie's Forward Sidestep.
      • Static Sidestepping ( ↑ ) will allow you to dodge attacks and maintain your ground.
      • Sophie can only perform her air dashes during Step Mode if she air-techs after receiving an attack.
      • Sophie can still use her Forward Step and Backward Leap during Step Mode but with a significant decrease in its original range as compared to when used in Dash Mode.
    • When in Dash Mode, Sophie gains access to all the basic movements available to most ACS characters.
      • Sophie's High Jump reaches the top of the screen. During her High Jump, she can only perform an air dash once she starts free falling.
      • Sophie's Double Jump exceeds the screen's height and is higher than her High Jump. During her Double Jump, there is a portion of the jump where she spins in mid-air. While spinning in mid-air, she cannot perform any kind of air dash.
        • Sophie's Double Jump costs 1 CC to execute.
      • Sophie's Forward Step and Backward Leap have decent speed and covers a good range.
    • Unlike Asbel Lhant, switching styles does not give access to new attacks and cannot be used during mid-combo (and continue it).
  • Unlike other ACS characters, Sophie cannot use any kind of ground and aerial Melee attacks. She can only use artes.
  • Sophie's Accelerate Mode: High Boost is accessed by pressing F anytime during a combo (with the exception of after Blast Calibers).
    • Using Accel Mode will require atleast 1 bar of Overlimit Gauge. Accel Mode will slowly consume the Overlimit Gauge similar to Overlimit.
    • When activating Accel Mode, Nearby enemies will be blown away and Sophie's movement style will automatically be switched to Step Mode. During a Forward Sidestep, Sophie will charge across the screen, through the enemy, and deal damage, this allows more opportunities for combos. This is known as her Accel Forward Sidestep.
      • Accel Forward Sidestep costs 1CC and can be linked into almost every one of her moves, however only Touki or another Accel Forward Sidestep can be successfully linked after it making it impractical to use in the middle of an Assault Arte combo. Distance traveled is in set intervals based on proximity from opponent. There's a chance based on how far away she is that Sophie will stop too far out of range of the opponent to link Touki after this.
    • If Sophie switches back to Dash Mode, her Accel Mode will not disappear. Although she wont be able to use her Accel Forward Sidestep unless she switches back into Step Mode, she does have increased movement speed to compensate for it.
    • Sophie can also use her artes that require Overlimit status when she is in Accel Mode.
  • Resembling her game's system, Sophie uses a Chain Capacity (CC) Gauge, enabling her to use artes in her combos as long as she has enough CC to use each arte.
    • Sophie starts with 9 CC. This number increases by 1 every time a combo costing 4 or more CC is completed. Once her CC reaches 13, though, the number will revert back to 9 after the next combo.
      • If the combo was in the air, the CC Gauge replenishes when she lands.
    • For every hit that Sophie connects to an enemy, there is a very small chance her CC will be temporarily increased by 1 or 2. The temporary increase can only reach a maximum of 15 CC and will always disappear after every combo.
    • During Overlimit Lv1 or Accel Mode, Sophie's maximum CC will always start at 14 and will only reset back to 9 once Overlimit or Accel Mode expires.
    • During Overlimit Lv2, Sophie's CC is frozen at 15.
  • All of Sophie's Assault (CC4) Artes (as well as Catastrophe) have invincibility frames, meaning for the duration of the attack, Sophie cannot be hit. In the case of Catastrophe, the invincibility starts right as she raises both arms.
  • Sophie's chain order consists of:
    • Assault (CC1) > Assault (CC2) > Assault (CC3) > Assault (CC4) > Blast Caliber or Tenketsubakutai
    • Most of Sophie's Burst Artes can be inserted anytime within the chain order so long as she has enough CC to do so. If this is done, the chain order will not move to the next Assault arte type until an Assault Arte is used.
    • If Sophie fails to reach Assault (CC4) during her combo because she does not have enough CC to execute the next Assault arte type within the chain order, she can still use an Assault Arte depending on her remaining CC with Assault (CC3) to be executed as the highest priority and Assault (CC1) as the lowest priority.
    • Upon execution of a Assault (CC4) arte, the chain order will reset back to Assault (CC1) if Blast Calibers or Tenketsubakutai are not used. Sophie can still continue the combo as long as she has enough CC.
    • Using Overlimit or Accel Mode will never reset her chain order. Instead she will continue the chain order until she reaches Assault (CC4). The rules in the above bullets will also be applied.
    • Normally, using any of Sophie's Blast Caliber will end the chain.

      • Step 2: Use any Assault (CC1) to Assault (CC4) Combo then Tenketsubakutai. Make sure you have atleast 14 CC at the start of the combo. This is only possible if you are in Overlimit or Accel Mode. (e.g. Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou > Renkigoushuku > Tenketsubakutai)
        • Note: Use the sample combo on an enemy that is cornered against a wall.
      • Step 3: You will notice that after Tenketsubakutai, the screen is slightly tinted in black. Wait for your CC Gauge to recover then use another any Assault (CC1) to Assault (CC4) Combo and then Karyuuenbu will automatically activate. (e.g. Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou > Renkigoushuku > Karyuuenbu).
    • It is possible to continue your combo afterwards IF you are in Accel Mode. This is done by double tapping → after Sophie's CC recovers.
    • If Sophie is in Accel Mode, the cut-in is changed to her Tales of Graces f version.
    • TTS is Instant. TTL is Very Short

Advanced Tips & CombosEdit

Battle StrategyEdit

General Use CombosEdit

Souryuukyaku Touki LinkEdit

  • ( Touki [Note 1] > Souryuukyaku [Note 2] ) X5 > Touki> Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou [Note 3] > Renkigoushuku > Any Blast Calibur or Overlimit or Accel Mode: High Boost
  • Quick Input Version:
  • ( A > ↓ A > ) X5 > A > → A > → A > → A > ...
    • Notes:
      • Note 1: The timing to reuse Touki is just as Sophie's CC recovers. This is very difficult to time.
      • Note 2: The timing to use Souryuukyaku is just as Sophie's backswing from Touki is about to end.
      • Note 3: Use Seppashou just as Sophie lands on the ground from Yousoushuugeki.
  • Sophie's other bread and butter combo. More powerful but more difficult than the Yousoushuugeki Reishishoudan Link Combo. Use this combo only if you have confidence that you can do it.

Scalar Gunner LoopEdit

  • ... [Note 1] > Accel Mode: High Boost > ( Touki > Sazan [Note 2] > Soudou Shouteiha [Note 3] > Scalar Gunner [Note 4] > Dash Towards Enemy [Note 5] ) X Repeat until Accel Mode is over or up to you.
  • Quick Input Version:
  • ... [Note 1] > F > ( A > ← A > ← A > ↓ ← → D > → → ) X Repeat until Accel Mode ends or up to you.
    • Requirements:
      • Overlimit Gauge set at Lv1 or higher.
    • Notes:
      • Note 1: Any combo is fine here as long as you use can use Accel Mode propely after it.
      • Note 2: You may spam this command (about 20% of the time you'll make a mistake) or you could time it. Press the command simultaneously with the ending of Sophie's backswing (The animation after hitting the enemy).
      • Note 3: You may spam this command (about 40% of the time you'll make a mistake so I really recommend that you time it) or you could time it. Press the command simultaneously with the 3rd hit from Sazan.
      • Note 4: Press the command for Scalar Gunner simultaneously with the 2nd hit from Soudou Shouteiha. Pressing the command too early will disallow Sophie to recover her CC Gauge before dashing towards the opponent. Pressing it too late would reset the combo counter.
      • Note 5: Wait for your CC to recover first. Once you hear the CC recovery sound effect, dash towards the enemy immediately.
  • Sophie's Scalar Gunner Loop Combo which can only be used during Accel Mode. This combo becomes more difficult as you use it repeatedly.

Yousoushuugeki Reishishoudan LinkEdit

  • ( Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Reishishoudan [Note 1] > Dash Forward [Note 2] ) X2 > Touki > Sazan > Sougetsu > Kouyokutenshou > Kouyokutenshou Hasei
  • Quick Input Version:
  • ( A > → A > ↑ A > → → > ) X2 > A > A > A > ↓ A > D
    • Requirements:
      • TP for Kouyokutenshou.
    • Notes:
      • Note 1: Reishishoudan must be timed immediately after Yousoushuugeki, otherwise Sophie will jump over the enemy and the attack will miss. Suggested strategy is spamming ↑ A during Yousoushuugeki or time it by pressing ↑ A at the same time Sophie touches the ground.
      • Note 2: The dash is difficult to time. If Sophie is in Step Mode, try to time the →→ just before your CC recharges. If she is in Dash Mode, try to time the →→ just after your CC recharges. It's recommended to use this combo in Dash Mode since its easier.
  • Sophie's bread and butter combo. You'll find yourself using this combo most of the time while playing Sophie.
  • You can alter the last part of the combo to your liking. Try using disabling artes or Blast Caliburs.

Extended Yousoushuugeki Reishishoudan LinkEdit

  • ( Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Reishishoudan [Note 1] > Dash Forward [Note 2] ) X2 > Touki > Sazan > Sougetsu > Kouyokutenshou > Accel Mode: High Boost > Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou > Renkigoushuku > Tenketsubakutai [Note 3] > Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou > Renkigoushuku > Karyuuenbu > Dash Forward [Note 4] > Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou [Note 5] > Renkigoushuku > Zero Dissolver or Shadow Moment [Note 6]
  • Quick Input Version:
  • ( A > → A > ↑ A > → → ) X2 > A > A > A > ↓ A > F > A > → A > → A > → A > ← A > A > → A > → A > → A > Auto (Karyuuenbu) > → → > A > → A > → A > → A > ↑ E or ↓ E
  • Total hits= 109. Damage instantly kills Kakashi Scarecrow [500 HP].
    • Requirements:
      • Atleast 1 bar of Overlimit.
      • 100% TP.
      • Enemy must be near a wall.
    • Notes
      • Note 1: Reishishoudan must be timed immediately after Yousoushuugeki, otherwise Sophie will jump over the enemy and the attack will miss. Suggested strategy is spamming ↑ A during Yousoushuugeki or time it by pressing ↑ A at the same time Sophie touches the ground.
      • Note 2: The dash is difficult to time. If Sophie is in Step Mode, try to time the →→ just before your CC recharges. If she is in Dash Mode, try to time the →→ just after your CC recharges. It's recommended to use this combo in Dash Mode since its easier.
      • Note 3: After Tenketsubakutai, wait a second before attacking again so your CC recharges. The enemy should stay staggered (Confirmed status effect) while it recharges.
      • Note 4: The dash must be done extremely fast after Karyuuenbu to continue to combo. Spamming →→ throughout the attack can help but do this only after Sophie's CC recovers.
      • Note 5: Your CC should have recharged either before or after the dash, if not, use the second hi-ougi after Yousoushuugeki.
      • Note 6: If you're extremely fast/lucky you may be able to continue your combo after the second hi-ougi with a dash, assuming you're still in Accel Mode, the enemy is still alive and the Blast Calibur you used is Shadow Moment.
  • Sophie's bread and butter combo with an Accel Mode extension. A little tricky but very powerful.

Highest ComboEdit

  • ( Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Reishishoudan [Note 1] > Dash Towards Enemy [Note 2] ) X2 > Touki > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou [Note 3] > Renkigoushuku > Accel Mode: High Boost > Touki [Note 4] > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou [Note 3] > Renkigoushuku > Tenketsubakutai > Touki [Note 5] > Yousoushuugeki > Seppashou [Note 3] > Renkigoushuku > Karyuuenbu > Dash Towards Enemy [Note 6] > ( Touki > Sazan [Note 7] > Soudou Shouteiha [Note 8] > Scalar Gunner [Note 9] > Dash Towards Enemy [Note 6] ) X2 > Touki > Sazan [Note 7] > Sougetsu > Accel Mode: High Boost [Note 10] > Renkigoushuku > Dash Towards Enemy [Note 11] > ( Touki > Sazan [Note 7] > Soudou Shouteiha [Note 8] > Scalar Gunner [Note 9] > Dash Towards Enemy) X4 > Touki > Sazan [Note 7] > Sougetsu > Kouyokutenshou > Kouyokutenshou Hasei > Zero Dissolver
  • Quick Input Version:
  • ( A > → A > ↑ A > → → ) X2 > A > → A > → A > → A > F > A > → A > → A > → A > ← A > A > → A > → A > → A > Auto (Karyuuenbu) > → → > ( A > ← A > ← A > ↓ ← → D > → → ) X2 > A > A > A > F > → A > → → > ( A > ← A > ← A > ↓ ← → D > → → ) X4 > A > A > A > ↓ A > D > ↑ E
  • Total Hits = 183. Damage kills Kakashi Scarecrow (500 HP).
    • Requirements:
    • Notes:
      • Note 1: Use Reishishoudan as soon as Sophie touches the ground from the downward kick of Yousoushuugeki. You can spam the command if your not used to the timing yet.
      • Note 2: Wait for your CC to recover before dashing towards the enemy.
      • Note 3: Use Seppashou as soon as Sophie touches the ground from the downward kick of Yousoushuugeki. You can spam the command if your not used to the timing yet but I still recommend getting used to the timing, as spamming the command here in this part of the combo has a low chance (about 15% of the time) that you will make a mistake.
      • Note 4: This one is a little tricky but not that difficult, you have to hit the enemy before he/she touches the ground after being lifted into the air by Sophie's Accel Mode Blast.
      • Note 5: Wait for your CC to recover before attacking. The enemy at this part of the combo is inflicted with the Confirmed status effect.
      • Note 6: Wait for your CC to recover first. Once you hear the CC recovery sound effect, dash towards the enemy immediately.
      • Note 7: You may spam this command (about 20% of the time you'll make a mistake) or you could time it. Press the command simultaneously with the ending of Sophie's backswing (The animation after hitting the enemy).
      • Note 8: You may spam this command (about 40% of the time you'll make a mistake so I really recommend that you time it) or you could time it. Press the command simultaneously with the 3rd hit from Sazan.
      • Note 9: Press the command for Scalar Gunner simultaneously with the 2nd hit from Soudou Shouteiha. Pressing the command too early will disallow Sophie to recover her CC Gauge before dashing towards the opponent. Pressing it too late would reset the combo counter.
      • Note 10: Unleash Sophie's Accel Mode as soon as possible (Yes, meaning you have to spam the button).
  • Sophie's highest/strongest combo. The Scalar Gunner loop is the trickiest part in this combo.
  • I've combined all other info from Sophie combos and added a few of my own so this combo was made by the ACS community. Minarie 23:31, August 5, 2011 (UTC).

Story ModeEdit

Sophie has a total of 6 Story Modes, ranging from Easy to Unknown 2. Note that all modes including and preceding Hard feature opponents that come in "Rounds", meaning that the field, positions, and statistics (HP and otherwise) will reset once an opponent is defeated. Modes after Hard feature opponents that come one after another, meaning that the fields, positions, and statistics of your character will not reset once an opponent has been defeated. However, A portion of your HP is refunded whenever an opponent is defeated in Mania Mode. Like Asbel, Sophie has a harder variation of Unknown that can be chosen by pressing F.
