Apocalyptic Sforzando (ティーロ・スフォルツァンド Tirosuforutsando?, "Tiro Sforzando") is a linked mystic arte used by Ludger Will Kresnik and Rowen J. Ilbert in Tales of Xillia 2.

Arte Description and History

Rowen takes out four knives and creates four magic, elemental circles around him with them. Reminiscent of a revolver's chambers, each magic circle shoots an elementally-charged orb at the target while switching to the next circle in a clockwise direction, Ludger using his guns as a trigger. The first orb explodes into a plume of water, the second orb freezes the plume, the third orb shatters the ice with electricity, and the fourth orb explodes with earthly power. Finally, Rowen shoots a large continuous beam at the target. The mystic arte's Japanese name, Tiro Sforzando, translates to "shooting sforzando" in Italian. A sforzando is a musical notation where the note(s) are played in a dramatic tune, adhering to Rowen's musical theme.
