Kuukan Shouten'i (TotR) Mithos

Kuukan Shouten'i used by Mithos in Tales of the Rays.

Eternal Slasher (空間翔転移 Kuukan Shouten'i?, "Space Soaring Shift"), known alternatively as Lunge and Chaos Lunge, is one of the space-time attacks unique to Cress Albane from Tales of Phantasia and Mithos and 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 groundward thrust, followed by a downward slash, a straight thrust, then a jumping upward slash 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.[1] 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 has a different animation and elemental attack depending on the user. Cress's variant is both Light- and Dark-elemental. Cress teleports, performs a downward slash as he lands, then an upward slash, followed by downward slash, ending with a final upward slash. This variant alters into Tenshou Jigenzan when used while standing still or moving. Mithos's version telekinetically lifts the Eternal Sword above his head before warping towards or behind the enemy. He then has the sword skewer the opponent before grabbing it and performing a slash. His variant is Light-elemental. Yggdrasill's variant has him warp a small distance backward, similar to Edward D. Morrison's Kuukanten'i, leaving behind a puff of smoke that can inflict damage, and is Non-elemental.

In both language files of Tales of Symphonia, there are voice clips of this arte used by Lloyd Irving and Yggdrasill while in the Japanese files of Tales of Legendia and Tales of the Abyss, there are unused voice clips of Senel Coolidge and Anise Tatlin using the arte. However, none have access to this arte in any final version of any game.
