Ice Hammer (コチハン Kochihan?, "Chinking Hammer") is an Ice- or Water-elemental variant of the classic arte Pow Hammer.

Arte Description and History[]

Ice Hammer releases one or more icy hammers. Most versions only release one, though Chat's releases multiple to match her version of Pow Hammer. Ice Hammer tends to inflict the Freeze status ailment, as opposed to Pow Hammer's Stun.

The コチ ("Kochi"?) of the arte's Japanese name comes from the word こちこち ("Kochikochi"?), which means "being frozen stiff" when used as a noun, and "chinking" when used as an onomatopoeic adverb.

In both files of the original Tales of Vesperia, there are voice clips of this arte used by Estelle, likely intended to be an altered arte of her Pow Hammer. However, she does not have access to this arte in any final version of the game.
