Ill Wind (ToV)

Ill Wind as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Ill Wind (風雅 Fuuga?, "Elegance"[1]) and Ill Wind (風牙 Fuuga?, "Wind Fang") are two Wind-elemental strike artes in the Tales series. They are homonyms in Japanese and share an English localization, but the kanji used have completely different meanings.

Arte Description and History

In Tales of Legendia, Jay thrusts his knife forward and begins spinning it, creating a orb of cutting wind that lasts even after he withdraws. His version is named Ill Wind (風雅 Fuuga?, "Elegance"[1]). In Tales of Vesperia, Schwann Oltorain and Alexei Dinoia perform a single, quick slash of wind. Their version is named Ill Wind (風牙 Fuuga?, "Wind Fang").
