Dragon Shot as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Dragon Shot (臥龍空破 Garyoukuuha?, "Reclining Dragon Sky Destruction"[1] or "Lying Dragon Air Crush"), originally localized as Rising Dragon Strike, is a hand-to-hand strike arte usually used by Farah Oersted, Jude Mathis, and the Fighter class.

Arte Description and History

The user performs a simple uppercut, causing both the user and the target to become airborne. In Tales of Eternia, Rising Dragon Strike is needed to activate the Serpent Knuckle team skill. In Tales of Arise, Law uniquely uses his leg as opposed to hand to perform this arte. In Tales of the Rays, Jude's version is a Wind-elemental mirrage arte, while Sync and Mirrist Regal's is a regular arte.
