Arte Description and History
When this arte is used, the user slashes diagonally downward and sweeps around in a wide arc along the ground, then reverses the strike to finish with a powerful vertical uppercut that lifts the target as the user jumps. However, it is difficult to link this arte to any others since the enemy usually lands before the user, giving it time to recover and counterattack.
Although this arte is typical of the Warrior skillset, Leon Magnus obtains this skill in the remake versions of Tales of Destiny, in which it can be used both as a standalone arte and an extension to Kogahazan by using it twice immediately. In Tales of the Abyss, this skill can be used within a complete Wind or Light FOF Circle to convert it into Lightning Tiger Blade. In in the PlayStation 3 and Definitive Edition versions of Tales of Vesperia, as he recycles the fight animations of a generic imperial Knight Fencer enemy, Leblanc does not jump, but is able to chain it to another arte.
