Arte Description and History

Final Fury as it appears in Tales of Xillia.

Final Fury began as one of Stahn Aileron's strongest sacred skills in the original PlayStation release of Tales of Destiny. Stahn throws his shield away and then begins a long series of strikes, ending with a huge blast of flame. It is upgraded to be his second level Blast Caliber in the PlayStation 2 release.

In the PlayStation release of Tales of Phantasia and all those derived from it, Cress Albane learns to use the arte when he levels up to over level 100 while his S&D weapon is equipped. To use the entire arte, the player has to press these buttons in order while the attack is occurring: O, X, ↑ + O, ↓ + X, ↑ + SQUARE, O, O, and ↓ + SQUARE. The requirement is removed in the iOS version due to the lack of buttons. It should be noted that Satsugeki Bukouken is classified as a base arte in this game, despite its requirements. The entire arte is a reference to Stahn, as the S&D is his sword and requires defeating Lilith Aileron, his sister, to obtain. In Tales of Eternia, Farah Oersted debuts a fist variant as one of her strongest artes, and it is the first time it is used without reference to Stahn.

In Tales of the Abyss, this arte is a mystic arte used by Anise Tatlin. It can be performed by using an arcane strike arte and holding down the "Arte" button while in Over Limit mode. Anise must have the AD Skill "Special" in order to use it. Anise's doll, Tokunaga, punches the opponent multiple times and eventually leaps into the air, where it then launches a blast of energy at them. She has two quotes for this arte: one normal and one alternative that will be used if Luke fon Fabre and Jade Curtiss are not in the battle and Ion is not with the party. If the player holds down the "Arte" button button throughout the arte in later playthroughs, it can be extended into Dying Moon. In many Crossover Titles, Dying Moon is used to identify Anise's mystic arte, although the arte itself is a combination of these two artes.

In Tales of Hearts, the move is a mystic arte that can be used by Kohaku Hearts. Kohaku kicks and smashes the enemies with her rod a dozen times or so, then kicks them down to the ground, ending with a spin and smash kick. In Tales of Zestiria and Tales of Berseria, the Dark Turtlez's version, written as Final Furyz Blade (殺劇吹こう剣 Satsugeki Bukouken?), is a direct parody of Kohaku's version, using different types of fish instead of cherry blossoms, as they share the same Japanese voice actor. Dark Turtlez slashes his enemy multiple times with his twin fish swords as different drawings of fish appear on the screen. He then knocks the enemy away and throws his twin fish swords into the air, twirls around, and catches one of them, using it like a blowgun to shoot a ball of water at his enemy, while the second fish sword humorously falls and pierces the top of his head.

In Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2, the move is a mystic arte that can be executed by Jude Mathis while in Over Limit mode and activated by using Savage Roar while holding the "Attack" button. It is also a shared mystic arte between Stahn and Cress in their cameo battle, as they each use their individual versions of the arte before ending with simultaneous fire blasts.

In Tales of the Rays, this arte becomes a mirrage arte for Stahn and Farah. Farah's version of Final Fury is that she first initiates with a kick in the air, followed by punches similar to Sonic Fist. She then follows with Twin Palm Strike and finishes with a blow similar to Rising Dragon Strike. In Stahn's version, he begins with a series combo of his own artes and finishes with a huge burst of flame. Stahn's Final Fury's element retains its original, Fire, while Farah's Final Fury's element is Wind.
