No Items Ever! (ToD PS2)

Item nazo Tsukatten ja nee! as it appears in the PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny.

No Items Ever! (アイテムなぞ使ってんじゃねぇ! Aitemu nazo Tsukatten ja nee!?, "Don't Use Items!") and Item nazo Hirotten ja nee (アイテムなぞ拾ってんじゃねぇ Aitemu nazo Hirotten ja nee?, "Don't Pick Up Items") are Barbatos Goetia's mystic artes for punishing item use.

Arte Description and History[]

Item nazo Tsukatten ja nee! begins, not as an arte, but as a phrase that appears across the top of the screen when using items while fighting Barbatos Goetia. Barbatos's fights are tricky because he responds to different player maneuvers with artes that cannot be interrupted; in this case, he responds to item use with Shadow Edge extending into Bloody Cross.

It first appeared as a Blast Caliber in the PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny, where Barbatos makes a mad dash toward the user of an item, damaging and knocking down any allies that get in his way, grabbing them before slamming them into the ground. He then swings his axe upward, lifting his opponent to the sky as he eventually finishes them with a mighty jumping axe uppercut.

No Items Ever! (ToV)

No Items Ever! as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

It reappears in Tales of Vesperia as the Killer of Heroes's mystic arte, where he runs toward the foe, similar to how he does in Evil Charge, grabs them by the neck, then throws them to the ground, as he does in Throw. He then pummels the helpless foe into the floor with his foot, as he does in Stomp, sending several rocks flying outward, before uppercutting them into the air with his axe, similarly with Ares Fist. In the PlayStation 3 and Definitive Edition version's Team Arena, the recipient of an item use is targeted, rather than the user; however, items which affect all party members and magic lenses will still cause Barbatos to target the user of the item.

Item nazo Hirotten ja nee (ToVS)

Item nazo Hirotten ja nee as it appears in Tales of VS.

In Tales of VS., Barbatos uses "Item nazo Hirotten ja nee", which translates roughly to "Don't Pick Up Items". Instead of being activated when one uses an item, this is activated when a character picks up an item, which can be a major threat when an item spawns above the character and they accidentally pick it up, triggering the arte. The change can be attributed to the PvP aspect of the game, as the traditional activation method could be too easily avoided in competitive play. It can only be used during Over Limit, similar to other playable mystic artes, though its activation criteria is unique to it.

In Tales of Berseria, Dark Turtlez uses a version that is modified with his own speech pattern, titled No Itemz For You (アイテムなぞ使ってんじゃねえっす Aitemu nazo tsukatten ja neessu?). He performs a flying kick toward the user of an HP restoration gel, stealing the item pouch. He then consumes more gels to heal himself. If the HP restoration gel used was the absolute last one, however, it turns into No Itemz Any More (アイテムなぞ使い切ってんじゃねえっす Aitemu nazo tsukaikitten ja neessu?), in which the Dark Turtlez's attempt to consume gels fails, leaving him depressed.

In Tales of the Rays, it is a mirrage arte that borrows the animation to Genocide Braver in execution and it is also written without the exclamation point. After item use was added as a standard feature, Loge gained the ability to use the arte, while Barbatos, as a party member, will even target allies who use items, though he will not target himself.
