Fierce Missile as it appears in Tales of Destiny (PSX).

Fierce Demon Fang (剛・魔神剣 Gou Majinken?, "Strong: Demon God Sword"[1]), Fierced Demon Fang (剛魔神剣 Goumajinken?, "Strong Demon God Sword"), and Dense Demon Dog (剛魔神犬 Goumajinken?, "Strong Demon God Dog") are upgraded versions of Demon Fang in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

In the original Tales of Destiny, Mary Argent launches a stronger version of Power Missile, localized as Fierce Missile, with an added chance to cause a dizzy effect to the target. In the remake versions, Mary stomps with her back leg before slamming her axe to the ground, causing three pillars of light to erupt in front of her.[2]

Fierce Demon Fang as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

In Tales of Symphonia, the user slams their weapon to the ground, creating a shock wave that damages enemies in a wide arc in front of them. It is from the "Strike" branch, its "Technical" counterpart being Double Demon Fang. Additionally, if a character has used the arte over 200 times, that character can add an Earth-elemental property to this attack through the use of the "Ruby" accessory, the Tethe Seal: Earth arte, an Earth-elemental weapon or the "Yellow Quartz" item, to replace the arte with the more powerful Earth-based Grave Blade.[3]

This arte returns with a slightly different name in Tales of Vesperia, where the Japanese name lacks the interpunct (・), changing it from Gou Majinken (剛・魔神剣?) to Goumajinken (剛魔神剣?). The change is reflected in the slight alteration of the localized name from "Fierce Demon Fang" to "Fierced Demon Fang".

In Tales of the Rays, Mary's version is Earth-elemental and its continuous usage will alter it into Retsu Majinken, while Kratos's lacks an elemental affinity and altered form.
