Dragon Glare (崩龍斬光剣 Houryuu Zankouken?, "Crumbling Dragon Slashing Glare Blade") is an arte exclusive to Leon Magnus and Judas.

Arte Description and History[]

Dragon Glare involves the user leaping high into the air and then descending with a series of slashes in a Z pattern or reverse Z pattern depending of the user's direction. Once on the ground, the user performs one final dashing slash. Judas uses it in Tales of Destiny 2, and he can extend it into Shouha Rekkousen. It is then added to the artes of Leon in the PlayStation 2 releases of Tales of Destiny, though it does not exist in the original game. This arte serves to further enhance the visual balance between his balanced slash and thrust motif, while also differentiating him from Stahn Aileron, with whom Leon shares many of the same artes in the original game.

In Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave, when executing this arte, Leon first launches his targets up in the air with an upward slash, then momentarily vanishes. He reappears, striking his targets with three slashes in a triangular pattern around them before reappearing in front of them and swinging Chaltier and his dagger in a cross shape at them in the air, knocking them down. In Tales of Link, Judas originally uses Majin Senretsushou during a cutscene, but this was changed to Dragon Glare in localization.

In Tales of the Rays, this arte is Leon's Light-elemental mirrage arte. In Tales of Crestoria, the final back slice is missing and despite the game having a 3D plane, he attacks his enemy from the side. Exclusively to his Armed with Friendship unit, this arte has 80% chance to inflict his enemy Burn for two turns and deals two more hits but it is 10% less powerful than his Defiant Heart unit.
