This article is about the recurring melee arte. For other artes that share the name, see Dragon Slayer.

Dragon Slayer (屠龍閃 Toryuusen?, "Slaying/Slaughter Dragon Flash"[1]) is a Fire-elemental arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When executed, the user raises their sword, summoning a large spike of flame that bursts from the ground. In the PlayStation 2 version of Tales of Destiny, it forces a large cooldown delay that prevents most artes from being chained to it without breaking the combo, but this can be canceled by chaining into a passive skill such as "Aiming Step" or "Charge". In the Director's Cut version of the same game, this arte is granted aerial capabilities, in which the user spins higher into the air and summons a vertical blast of flame. The cooldown delay is removed during aerial use. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is also Wind-elemental.
