Death Cloud (デスクラウド Desukuraudo?) is an Earth-elemental spell that was exclusive to the original Super Famicom version of Tales of Phantasia and revived as a strike arte in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World.
Arte Description and History
Death Cloud summons a cloud of death from Daemonium to engulf a single foe. This spell is one of the few instant-death attacks which exist within the entire Tales series. However, unlike Extension and Distortion, which also have the chance to inflict instant death and are present in the original release of Tales of Phantasia, Death Cloud was removed from later versions of the same game and has not appeared in most later titles. Death Cloud was restored to the series in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, as a Dark-elemental monster arte used by the "Undertaker" creature. It summons an orb of darkness around a single foe, similar to the Negative Gate arte.
