Welcome to my guide to the skits in Tales of Eternia. Spoilers ahead.

Camping skits can be activated from the "camp" menu option on the world map or at camping sites within dungeons. Each skit can only be activated once in-game, and each one is only available during a window of time that depends on various factors such as location, preceding event, items in inventory, etc. Most skits are tied to certain story events, and become inaccessible if the player doesn't camp to view the skits immediately afterwards. Other skits can appear over longer periods of time and are not tied to specific events in the story timeline, but may be linked to other player actions. In the guide below, I will list all 264 skits and the conditions needed to trigger each one, based on information in the official guidebooks and my own experience playing the game many times. Each skit has an official number, but the number doesn't always correspond to the order in which they appear in the game. Therefore, I will group them by story event, or category of skit if not tied to an event. All names are listed according to my new translation of the game that's still in progress.

Camping skits are numbered in this guide as C#. Hint skits (their official name for this game, but perhaps better known as navigational skits) can be activated through pressing the Select key while on the world map. There are 80 hint skits, and they are numbered in this guide as H#, starting from H265. Every skit will be listed here whether playable or not.

Each skit is listed according to the first story event after which they become accessible. For many skits that aren't directly tied to a story event, the player doesn't necessarily have to play the skit exactly when they first become accessible, but just keep in mind that many skits do have a time limit and will no longer be playable past clearing a certain event. I'll list in parentheses at what point the skits can no longer be seen. Unless specified to be at a camping spot, all skits are to be played on the world map.

Placenames on this page are spelled according to the official Namco English localization. Someday, when my re-translation project is complete and playable, then I'll change these spellings to the scheme used in that script.

(There are a handful of skits that I couldn't find a way to trigger, and as far as I can tell from my research on the Japanese side of the internet, that no one else has been able to find in-game either. But they are still accessible from the Debug menu and post-game Sound Test menu. I will group them below with the event or category that seems to be appropriate.)


After leaving the village of Rasheans for the first time, the following skits will play on the world map:

Note: Letting Meredy cook before you clear all of the Morle-related skits will lock you out of playing skit C52.
