Spin Slash as it appears in Tales of Destiny (PSX).

Tempest Strike (烈空斬 / 裂空斬 Rekkuuzan?, "Fissure Sky Slash"[1] / "Rending Air Slash"), also localized as Spin Slash and Tempest, is a classic technique in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When using the arte, the user somersaults into the air while extending their weapon outward, slashing the enemies multiple times while airborne. In the PlayStation 2, PlayStation 3, and PC versions of Tales of Symphonia, a Fire-elemental property can be added to Lloyd Irving's attack through the use of the "Garnet" accessory, the S. Seal: Fire arte, a Fire-elemental weapon, or the "Red Quartz" item to replace it with the more powerful Fire-based arte Blazing Tempest, if Lloyd has used the arte over 200 times. In Tales of Graces, Asbel Lhant can use this arte only while he is a child. In Tales of the Rays, Lloyd, Guy, and Caius' versions are Wind-elemental, while Ruca's version is Fire-elemental.
