Revive (TotA)

Revive as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

This article is about support spell "Revive". For the spell that was localized by the same name in Tales of Legendia, see Revitalize.

Revive (リバイブ / リヴァイブ / リヴァイブ Ribaibu / Ribaivu / Rivaivu?) is a recurring support spell in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

Typically, when Revive is used, it grants the target the ability to automatically revive from KO as long as the status in effect. In Tales of the Tempest, Revive revives a party member from the knocked-out status to full HP and TP, with Angelus performing an effect similar to what Revive normally does. In Tales of Symphonia, when Revive is used on Colette Brunel, and she uses Sacrifice, this arte does not resurrect her. In Tales of the Abyss, using Revive in a fully charged Earth or Dark FOF Circle will alter it into Angel's Breath.

In Tales of Vesperia, Revive is altered from the Resurrection arte using the "Hell Fire", "Athenor", "Gale", and "Great Deluge" skills. It can be learned by itself after 50 uses. In the PlayStation 3 port of the game, it is one of the spells Patty Fleur's Gamble Cast arte can randomly cast. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, the spell is Light-elemental and will thus add the Light element to the Elemental Grid.
