Rising Falcon (ToV)

Rising Falcon as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Rising Falcon (飛天翔駆 Hitenshouku?, "Flying Heaven Soaring Drive") is a Non-elemental version of the Rising Phoenix arte, which serves as its prerequisite in various games.

Arte Description and History[]

The user jumps into the air and then dives downward at an angle toward the enemy. This arte is capable of covering a far distance of the battlefield, enabling it to be used as a tactic for mobility while also dealing damage to a distant target. The initial jump can be canceled in most games if the user is already airborne when the arte is activated, allowing it to be used more effectively during combos. While this arte is often associated with sword-wielding characters, it is available to martial artists who rely on their fists and feet to fight such as Hermana Larmo from Tales of Innocence and Jude Mathis from Tales of Xillia.

In Tales of Symphonia, it is possible to alter the arte into Rising Phoenix if Lloyd Irving uses it while dealing Fire-elemental damage. This is also possible in the PlayStation 3 and Definitive Edition ports of Tales of Vesperia, in which Flynn Scifo can activate Rising Phoenix if he is equipped with the Hell Fire skill.

In Tales of the Rays, Ix Nieves's version is Wind-elemental, while Alphen's is Fire-elemental. The latter's version can alter into Rising Phoenix when used as the sixth or later action in a chain.
