Cyclone Shot as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Cyclone Shot (空破特攻弾 Kuuha Tokkoudan?, "Empty Destruction Special Attack Bullet"[1]) is one of the arcane artes of the series introduced by Loni Dunamis of Tales of Destiny 2.

Arte Description and History

In its original form, Loni executes this arte by throwing himself head-first into the air while spinning with his weapon, as if he were a cyclone, traveling in a small arc through the sky due to the pull of gravity. This action relates closely to Spiral Driver, the mystic arte that extends from this arte, which involves Loni spinning across the entire screen in the same way, with enough speed to overcome the gravitational pull. However, in most later games, the character shoots rapidly into the sky at a steep angle before jumping backward to drop to the ground. The back jump action can be canceled in Tales of Vesperia, allowing characters to continue with other aerial attacks.
