Dragon Surge (TotA)

Dragon Surge as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Dragon Surge (臥龍撃 Garyougeki?, "Reclining Dragon Attack"[1]) is an arte used by unarmed characters in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

In Tales of the Abyss, when Anise Tatlin uses this arte, her automated doll, Tokunaga, performs a charged uppercut surrounded by an upward surge of energy, lifting the target into the air. When used within a complete Earth or Dark FOF Circle, the arte is converted into Stone Dragon Ascent. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Regal Bryant performs a sweeping kick on the targeted enemy, followed by a rising back-flip that knocks the enemy into the air.
