Critical Blade (クリティカルブレード Kuritikarubureedo?) is a Fire-elemental mystic arte and combination arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History[]

Critical Blade consists of a character charging their weapon with a flame before they jump into the air to slam their blazing weapon into the ground, resulting in a large explosion. The arte first appears as a mystic arte extension for Loni Dunamis in Tales of Destiny 2, where he uses Kappa Bakusougeki to stagger the enemy, while he has either 100 SP or Spirits Blaster Mode active, before extending into Critical Blade itself.

In order to activate this Compound Special Attack in the PlayStation 2 and later ports of Tales of Symphonia, the chosen spellcaster must use an intermediate or higher Fire-elemental spell while Presea Combatir uses the Destruction arte that is in the same level as the spell during a Unison Attack. In addition, Sophie can obtain this attack as her first Blast Caliber in Tales of Graces. Her attack is slightly different, as she begins by punching forward, pushing all of her enemies in front of her as she strikes into them. Afterward, due to her lack of weapon, she smashes down with her foot, causing an explosion similar to earlier versions of this attack.

In Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2, this is a linked arte used by Gaius and Muzét. Muzét uses Spire Throw to grab the opponent and fling them into the air. Gaius then jumps up to them and uses the stance of Exalted Divide to slam them back into the ground.
