Spread as it appears in Tales of Eternia.

Spread (スプレッド Supureddo?) is a Water-elemental spell in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When used, Spread creates a column of water beneath the enemy that rises to damage it multiple times, lifting it in the process. In Tales of Eternia, Spread can be extended into Maelstrom if certain conditions are met.

Spread as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

In Tales of Symphonia, Spread is a moderate Water spell Genis Sage can learn after mastering Aqua Edge if he is aligned with the "Technical" branch of artes, its "Strike" counterpart being Aqua Laser. After enough uses, Genis will learn the advanced spell Tidal Wave, and after using it enough times with Eruption, he will also learn Raging Mist. The Summon Spirit Undine can use this spell in her boss battle and when she is summoned by Sheena Fujibayashi. When Sheena summons Undine, the Summon Spirit casts several columns of water randomly on the field, instead of the standard one. In Tales of Symphonia: Dawn of the New World, Genis loses the ability to use this spell, obtaining Splash in its place.

In Tales of Legendia, Spread is a Sea-elemental spell used by Will Raynard. It has no incantation and summons a column of water from beneath the enemy, hitting it three times. In Tales of Graces, Spread is a novice-level Water spell used by Pascal in which an upward blast of water is emitted directly in front of her. It can strike up to four times, and the spell is capable of juggling lighter targets into the air.

Spread is also the name of a recurring bow weapon, localized as Spread Bow. In Tales of Link, this fact may be why Genis Sage's version of the arte is localized as Spread Bow and marks one of several times that artes obtain localizations more akin to weapons.
