Earth Bite (ToS)

Earth Bite as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

Earth Bite (バイトオブアース Baitoobuaasu?, "Bite of Earth") is an Earth- and Lightning-elemental advanced tier spell in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

In Tales of Symphonia, Genis Sage can learn this spell after learning Spark Wave and Grave, if he is aligned with the "Strike" branch of artes. When Earth Bite is cast, a small ball of electricity surrounds the target and shocks it multiple times, causing Lightning-based damage. Then, a hemisphere of earth erupts from the ground surrounding the enemy and engulfs it, hitting it twice more for Earth-based damage. This spell is notable as Genis's only spell that does two different types of elemental damage.
