Tower of Salvation is a starter stage in Super Smash Flash 2 hailing from the game Tales of Symphonia, serving as the home stage for Lloyd. Despite the simple design the stage has, it has one of the most notable stage hazards in the game: Mithos Yggdrasill.
The stage features a large platform in the center and a small platforms on each side that moves up and down slowly. In the background, the player can see pillars and the spot where the Eternal Sword should rest.
The main hazard of this stage is Mithos Yggdrasill, the main antagonist of Tales of Symphonia, who floats at the top of the stage, counterattacking any player that attacks him and conjuring magical spells on the stage. When countering a player's attack, he deals 8% damage with moderate knockback to opponents hit. At other times, he will sometimes shoot a horizontal laser between the two small platforms, hitting any player that is in the horizontal beam. Mithos also uses Death Eater, which causes powerful pillars of light to sprout from the ground.

- The alternate music track is titled Fatalize, an arrangement of a boss battle theme from Tales of Symphonia. Arranged by Alex Chernabogue Mourey.
This stage is currently a counterpick in tournament play. Its simplistic design when hazards are disabled makes it a popular stage, especially in online play where the lag is minimal in comparison to most other stages. The stage has floating platforms at either side, which are strong camping positions and can be used to extend a character's horizontal reach offstage. Also, the stage boundaries are comparatively short compared to the stage's size, giving characters with strong onstage games and weak recoveries an advantage.
In Tales of Symphonia, the Tower of Salvation is the tower that connects the two worlds, Sylvarant and Tethe'alla. It appears in one of the worlds after its Chosen of Regeneration receives the Oracle, after which they must embark on a journey to become an angel and regenerate the world of its mana. The stage takes place in the entry room at the top of the tower, where the Eternal Sword normally rests and the entrance to Welgia, the angel city, is found. This is also the first location in the game where Mithos Yggdrasill is encountered and fought, before the Eternal Sword appears there. Additionally, by using the power of the Eternal Sword, Lloyd can be transported to Derris-Kharlan, a giant meteor made up of mana.
