Demonic Circle (ToV)

Demonic Circle as it appears in Tales of Vesperia.

Demonic Circle (魔皇刃 Makoujin?, "Demon Imperial Blade"[1]) is one of two upgraded versions of Fierce Demon Fang.

Arte Description and History

This arte is one of the strongest artes in the Demon Fang family. When it is executed, the user swings their sword around in a circle before slamming it into the ground to create a close-range shock wave that hits all enemies in a large arc in front of the user. It first appeared in Tales of Symphonia as Lloyd Irving's highest-level "Strike" arte that is derived from Demon Fang, with its "Technical" counterpart being Demonic Chaos.

In the original release of Tales of Vesperia, Demonic Circle is available to Flynn Scifo as one of several artes in his repertoire that are used only during the duel against him. In the game's PlayStation 3 port, Flynn obtains the arte while he is playable, and he can change this arte into the altered arte Resshintenshou while the "Athenor" skill is equipped.
