Dragon Slayer (ToV)

Dragon Slayer as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Dragon Slayer (屠龍閃 Toryuusen?, "Dragon-Slaying Flash") 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 Vesperia: Definitive Edition, Clint's version has the astral image of a dragon swirling upward. In Tales of Innocence R, Ruca Milda plants his sword into the ground, creating an explosion.

In Tales of Hearts, Kor Meteor performs an upward slash. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is also Wind-elemental. Kor leaps in a clockwise rotation while performing the slash, very similar to Hiou Zesshouzan. Additionally, it can be used mid-air, as well as alter to Hiou Zesshouzan when used as the sixth or later action in a chain.
