Gen'eijin used by Dio in Tales of the Rays.

Phantom Edge (幻影刃 / 幻影迅 Gen'eijin?, "Phantom Edge"[1] / "Phantom Clap") is a recurring strike arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

The user quickly slices through their target. After Judas's use of the arte in Tales of Destiny 2, it appears in Leon Magnus's arte list in the PlayStation 2 remakes of Tales of Destiny. This may be to show their connection to each other, as well as to separate Leon's former arte set from Stahn Aileron's, as these two had very many shared artes in the original version of the game. Occasionally, Leon's version is Dark-elemental as seen in the PlayStation 2 remakes of Tales of Destiny and in Tales of the Rays.

When Frederic Barnes uses it in Tales of Graces, he leaves behind his cane, which then flies back to his hand and can deal additional damage. His arte is written as "Gen'eijin" (幻影迅?) in the Tales of Graces Official Complete Guide.

In Tales of Xillia and Tales of Xillia 2, Ivar adds a downward cut with his daggers, forming a cross after slash-charging through his target. Additionally, if he misses, he will fall head first onto the ground, digging into it for a short distance. This trait is carried on in Tales of the Rays, if Ivar continuously uses Gen'eijin.

In Tales of the Rays, Dio slashes downward, creating a black hole that he then slashes through.
