Burn Strike as it appears in Tales of Destiny 2.

Burning Strike (バーンストライク Baansutoraiku?, "Burn Strike") is a recurring Fire-elemental magic arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

The user summons several flaming meteorites to rain down on the battlefield, successively striking the target with each meteorite and landing a few steps ahead of the previous one in a straight line. In Tales of Destiny 2, some characters can extend this spell into Volcanic Ray. In Tales of Vesperia, Rita Mordio's version is an altered variant of her Negative Gate arte. It can initially be performed while equipped with her Mao cameo costume, serving as a reference to the Tales of Rebirth character. She can use the arte without the costume after it is mastered and can be altered to include more projectiles depending on the amount of times it is used.

In Tales of Arise, Shionne Imeris and Law uses a Boost Strike variant called Red Hot Burning Strike (灼熱のバーンストライク Shakunetsu no Baansutoraiku?, "Scorching Burn Strike"). Shionne tosses three Fire bullets, to which Law leaps up and then spikes into the enemy with a kick, engulfing the enemy in a dart of flame. This arte's naming is similar to the quote Barbatos speaks when using the Burning Strike spell in Tales of Destiny 2, and is even used in one of his units in Tales of Asteria, prior to Tales of Arise.

In Tales of Festival 2010, an orb called the "Barbatos Sphere" contained Barbatos's personality within it. Whoever was possessed by it would use the Burn Strike arte.
