Stone Press (ToD PSX)

Stone Press as it appears in Tales of Destiny (PSX).

Stone Press (プレス Puresu?, "Press") is an Earth-elemental used by Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny and Rena Lanford from Star Ocean franchise.

Arte Description and History

Upon activation, a giant boulder drops from the sky, smashing the enemy beneath its weight. Stone Press is also one of the few artes that has been removed from any character's movelist in the PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny, replaced by Leon's Air Pressure as one of several artes that associate him with his identity as Judas. Because of its removal, it no longer has any association with any character, making it a legacy arte that has little viability for use in future games. Alhough Stone Press does not appear as an in-battle arte in Tales of Destiny 2, Pierre de Chaltier uses Press when he displays the power of his Swordian to eliminate a portion of the attacking forces at Dycroft. In Tales of the Rays, Rena summons a few weights above the target that fall on it, referencing the arte's appearance in Star Ocean: The Second Story from which she originates.
