Souhajin as it appears in Tales of Destiny 2.

Azure Edge (蒼破刃 Souhajin?, "Green/Blue Destruction Blade"[1]) is a projectile strike arte in the Tales series that usually serves as the basic-ranged technique for a sword user without access to the Demon Fang arte.

Arte Description and History

Azure Edge originally appears as an arte available to Kyle Dunamis that replaces the traditional Demon Fang. It is similar to Demon Fang in that it can be used from long range, though it travels through the air rather than along the ground. It can be extended into Azure Storm with the "Tsuika Tokugi" (追加特技?, "Additional Base Arte") skill enchant equipped. In Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, Azure Edge is green in the original Japanese version of the game, but it was recolored to blue in the North American release and has remained blue in the subsequent appearances; this difference can be traced to the complexity of the blue–green distinction in the Japanese language.

In Tales of Vesperia, Azure Edge appears as the starting base arte for Yuri Lowell. Yuri slashes his weapon through air, which sends a blue blast through the air at the enemy, dealing Wind-elemental damage. It can also become faster and travel slightly farther with more use. Azure Edge is also the original arte of two altered artes in the game, Azure Storm and Azure Blast. In Tales of Hearts, Azure Edge is a combination arte performed by Kor Meteor using Kuuretsusen and Hisui Hearts using Stream Arrow.
