Gessenkou as it appears in the PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny.

Moon Glare (月閃光 Gessenkou?, "Moon Flash Light"[1] / "Moon Glint") is a multi-hit strike arte in the Tales series that first appeared in Tales of Destiny 2.

Arte Description and History

The user performs a curved, upward slash that invokes the image of a crescent moon. Some characters can also extend it into Moon Fall, which uses a dark, downward slash to invoke the imagery of a gibbous moon in contrast. Judith from Tales of Vesperia uses a different version that involves her performing a series of slashes to summon the image of the moon, which she then slices in half. In Tales of Graces, Richard can perform this arte while he is a child.
