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

Arte Description and History

Gessenkou as it appears in Tales of Rebirth.

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 two different versions, one on the ground, and one in the air. The ground version involves her performing a series of slashes to summon the image of the moon, which she then slashes in half as she pierces the enemy while soaring into the air. If the "Attack" and/or "Artes" buttons are held down or pressed repeated, the number of slashes increase. The air version has her slash the enemy twice before the image of the moon appears below her, which she cuts in half when she performs a dive kick. In Tales of Graces, Richard can perform this arte while he is a child. In Tales of Innocence R, Ange Serena's variant excludes the shadowy sphere. In Tales of Crestoria, Leon [Armed with Friendship]'s version of Moon Glare has one less hit, and eighty percent more power, than Leon [Defiant Heart]'s version.
