Havoc Strike as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Havoc Strike (崩襲脚 / 崩蹴脚 Houshuukyaku?, "Crumble Attack/Leap Kick"[1]) is an arte used by characters associated with the Warrior class from Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology.

Arte Description and History

When this arte is used, the user jumps and spins in the air, then slams onto the ground at an angle, striking the enemy with the full force of their weight. This arte is one of the most effective early attacks for Warrior-based characters since it can link to other artes quickly without forcing a landing recovery delay or enemy knockdown effect.

In Tales of the Abyss, the arte can be used within a complete Fire or Light FOF Circle to convert it into Burning Havoc. Additionally, in Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, this arte can be converted into a similar Fire-elemental version if the "Ignis" skill is equipped. However, the name itself remains as "Havoc Strike", and this alternate Fire-elemental variation is not associated with Burning Havoc itself. In Emil's version, the second kanji is changed from "Attack" ( shuu?) to "Kick" ( shuu?) without the change in pronunciation or effect.
