Grand Cataclysm (グランヴァニッシュ Guranvanisshu?, "Gran Vanish"), also localized as Grand Vanish, is an advanced Earth-elemental spell associated mostly with the characters originating from Tales of Destiny 2.
Arte Description and History
Upon activating this spell, the earth around the target cracks, revealing yellow-orange light. Enemies trapped are subject to intense pressure, which causes bits of earth to rise in the affected area. In Tales of Destiny 2, this spell can be extended into Earth Tapper to call the Spirit Gnome into battle, if the skill enchant "Gugen Kesshou" (具現結晶?) is equipped on the original spell. Grand Cataclysm reappears as Reala's Blast Caliber in Tales of Graces. Here, Reala summons streaks of light that fall from the sky to strike into the earth, causing the affected spots to glow. The earth then cracks and breaks apart, dealing damage to all enemies on the entire battlefield. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is also Fire-elemental.
