Eternal Slasher (空間翔転移 Kuukan Shouten'i?, "Spatial Soar Transfer"), known alternatively as Lunge and Chaos Lunge, is one of the space-time attacks unique to Cress Albane from Tales of Phantasia and Mithos Yggdrasill in Tales of the Rays.
Arte Description and History
Eternal Slasher is an arte where Cress surrounds himself with a column of rising energy, effectively preventing anyone from getting close. He then teleports in front of the targeted enemy, dealing a combo of sword slashes before retreating and preventing reprisal. It is modified to match the nature of the battle system in Tales of the Heroes: Twin Brave, as Cress does not teleport directly in front of the enemies, but instead from where he has used this arte, and he also does not retreat to where he used it after the final slash.
It is used in Cress's Tales of Eternia coliseum battle, though he only seems to use it when Reid Hershel is dizzy. Elements of this arte can be seen in his mystic arte Eternal Blade, as the second part of that arte is a teleport into the air surrounded by rising energy. In Tales of Xillia 2, the move was localized as "Chaos Lunge", the name usually given to the arcane arte derived from this arte and Chaos Blade. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is Light-elemental, with Cress's version being also Dark-elemental.
