Impact Cross (ToV)

Impact Cross as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Impact Cross (衝破十文字 Shouha Juumonji?, "Impact Tearing Cross"), originally localized as Cross Thrust is a combination arte and mystic arte generally used by two swordsman characters simultaneously.

Arte Description and History[]

Cross Thrust first appears as a Compound Special Attack that can be used by Lloyd Irving, Kratos Aurion, or Zelos Wilder if they use the same Sonic Thrust artes during a Unison Attack. The two participants thrust through the enemy, creating a cross between themselves that damages anything in their path. Leia Rolando in Tales of Xillia substitutes her own version of Sonic Thrust, Darting Claw, whose Japanese name is similar to Sonic Thrust's.

Eventually, Impact Cross was reprised and upgraded to mystic arte status, used by Gauche and Droite in Tales of Vesperia. They stand around their target and slice through it to create the same cross, which then explodes to deal further damage. Two different camera angles are used when this mystic arte is activated, which change depending on which of the twins activates the attack, ultimately finishing with that character closest to the camera at the end of the attack. This arte can no longer be used when either twin is defeated.

In Tales of Asteria, as separate units, Gauche and Droite both receive an individualized version of their dual mystic arte from Vesperia. Gauche uses Shouha Juumonji - Hidari no Tachi (衝破十文字・左の太刀?, "Impact Tearing Cross - Left Sword") while Droite uses Shouha Juumonji - Migi no Tachi (衝破十文字・右の太刀?, "Impact Tearing Cross - Right Sword").

In Tales of Arise, Impact Cross is a Boost Strike used by Alphen and Dohalim il Qaras, with the two of them rushing at the enemy before positioning and thrusting through the enemy. As a reference to the Boost Strike, it is a crossover mirrage arte for Dohalim and Gaius in Tales of the Rays.
