Philia Bomb (フィリアボム Firiabomu?) is a Light-elemental strike arte in the Tales series and one of the signature artes of Philia Felice from Tales of Destiny.

Arte Description and History

This arte simply involves Philia throwing a handmade bomb at her enemies, reflecting her researching nature mentioned in the original game. Later, a new version named Bomb Throw was created for users other than Philia, but this arte remains as Philia's recurring arte in her appearances. The PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny adds a sleep-inducing effect to the arte. In Tales of Eternia, Meredy's Destiny summon calls the Swordian Masters from Tales of Destiny to perform attacks. Though the English version does not name the individual artes, the Japanese version does, and Philia's arte is "Philia Bomb", although it functionally acts more like Bomb Rain. In Tales of the Rays, it is also the weapon that grants Philia use of the arte.
