Crescent Moon (天月旋 Tengetsusen?, "Sky Moon Rotation"[1]) is a base anti-air arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

In Tales of Symphonia, Regal Bryant does a back-flip kick that launches the enemy into the air. The image of a crescent moon appears that traces the arc of his foot as he flips through the air. This arte can be viewed as an alternate version of Infliction, using the character's foot to attack instead of a weapon. In the PlayStation 2 port of the game, this arte can be used in Unison Attacks together with Sheena Fujibayashi's Yuugenfu and Sanrikifu artes to form different Compound Special Attacks.
