Vidarr is the first boss in Tales of Symphonia, fighting against Lloyd Irving, Colette Brunel, Genis Sage, and later Kratos Aurion at the entrance to the Martel Temple.


When the trio arrive at the Martel Temple, believing it to be a Desian attack, they fight some Renegade soldiers. When Vidarr's fellow comrades are defeated, they allow him to fight the trio. Before defeating the group, Kratos interferes, joins the battle, and aids in defeating Vidarr.

Fighting Style

In battle, Vidarr wields a large ball and chain, along with a hammer, allowing him to strike at long and close range. Either in the middle of the battle or when the party's HP is running low, the battle will be canceled and restarted, with Kratos joining. Viddar has one tech, Shatter Shot (殴砕撃 Ousaigeki?), which is a particularly damaging attack that breaks his hammer. After using this, he will draw a sword from his back and wield it in the same way as the hammer.

Other Appearances
