Ground Breaker as it appears in Tales of Xillia.

Ground Breaker (獅吼爆砕陣 Shikou Bakusaijin?, "Lion Roar Exploding Smashing Position"), formerly localized as Maximum Burst, is a mystic arte used by primarily by martial artists in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

With Ground Breaker, the user releases three Beast attacks in a rapid succession, with the third stronger than the first two. It is one of the first mystic artes in the series, being one of Farah Oersted's Divine Skills and extending from her Chi. Celsius uses it as well, though her version extends from Ice Raid. Farah also uses it in Tales of Symphonia, though it is classified as an arcane arte beginning with the PlayStation 2 release. It is a linked arte for Jude Mathis and Rowen J. Ilbert in Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2. Jude begins a series of melee attacks while Rowen snipes with earth-infused knives from afar, and Jude ends with three simultaneous lion heads. In Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3, Celsius's version differs from the Monk version by encasing her target in jagged ice with the final lion's head, which then explodes.
