Severed Fate (TotA)

Severed Fate as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Severed Fate (セヴァードフェイト Sevaadofeito?) is a recurring knife-based arte in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History[]

When this arte is executed, the user leaps into the air and throws down three knives in a triangle formation. This creates a field of light that rapidly hits any enemy caught within. In Tales of the Abyss, when this attack is used within a complete Wind or Light FOF Circle, it changes into Fatal Circle. In Tales of the Rays, this arte is Light-elemental.

In Tales of Vesperia, this arte is modified significantly to tie into Patty Fleur's chance-based attack style, beginning with a series of slashes before she jumps backward into the air. Afterward, a set of three cards appears, and the player is prompted to select one of them by pressing the Attack, Artes, or Guard buttons. This creates a blasting effect that can damage enemies, with the option of knocking them down if the larger blast effect is chosen. However, there is a chance for the blast to misfire, damaging Patty while she is in the air. Seifer the Cursed Wanderer uses a variant of Severed Fate called Severed Fate α.

In Tales of Xillia, this arte is used by Rowen J. Ilbert by first holding knives in his hand. He then throws them the air. After the enemy moves toward him, they suddenly get caught in a triangular field of light. They are then damaged within the triangle barrier. Rowen demonstrates his prowess outside of battle with this arte during his introduction, when he stealthily goads his targets such that they could all be trapped at the same time.
