Hell Sword (爆炎剣 Bakuenken?, "Blast/Bursting Flame Sword"[1]), also localized as Sword Flare, is a Fire-elemental sword strike arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When activated, the user charges fire into their sword for a short period before slamming it onto the ground, creating a small blast of fire upon contact. The attack is known to be extremely spammable when used repeatedly, making it one of the best attacks available early in the games in which it appears. In Tales of Destiny 2, this arte can be extended into Bakuenrenshou if the Skill Enchant "Tsuika Tokugi" (追加特技?) is equipped on Bakuenken.

Furthermore, in Tales of the World: Narikiri Dungeon 3, Bakuenken is a combination of both itself and its extension, without the additional TP requirement. In Tales of Symphonia, Magnius's Hell Axe may be related as it is similar in execution. Magnius charges his axe with flame before slashing down with fire trailing his blade. Though it does not cause a flame to appear upon contact with the ground, it does seem to cause a small explosion.
