Hienrenzan as it appears in the PlayStation 2 remake of Tales of Destiny.

Swallow Talon (飛燕連斬 Hienrenzan?, "Flying Swallow Chain Slash"[1]) is an alternate version of the Swallow Dance arte that is exclusive to Leon Magnus from Tales of Destiny.

Arte Description and History

Swallow Talon is unique to the arte set of Leon, as it appears in the remakes of Tales of Destiny and in Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology, but it does not exist in the original game. When used, Leon jumps into the air to perform two spinning slashes, followed by a powerful downward thrust toward the ground, leaving a streak of light behind him.

This arte was invented to replace Leon's Swallow Dance, which he has in the original version of Tales of Destiny. This modification of his arte set serves to further enhance the visual balance between his balanced slash and thrust motif, while also differentiating him from Stahn Aileron, with whom Leon shares many of the same artes in the original game.
