The Devil's Arms (闇の装備品 Yami no Soubihin?, lit. "Dark Equipment") are a set of recurring weapons in the Tales series.

History

Tales of Symphonia

The Devil's Arms are series of cursed weapons in Tales of Symphonia that are collected to help Abyssion. Each Devil's Arm is specific to one character in the party, with the exception of "Soul Eater" and "Fafnir", as Kratos Aurion and Zelos Wilder can use both swords and daggers. They have no attack power and typically have negative effects, but their attack ratings will increase with every monster killed after beating Abyssion.

The party meets Abyssion at Flanoir after unknowingly obtaining one of the arms. Abyssion tells them the story about a man named Nebilim who sought to conquer Tethe'alla. He was defeated by a single swordsman, but Nebilim infused the swordsman's nine equipment and cursed his descendants. Abyssion is the last of these descendants who become demon hunters but is weakened by the curse. He gives the party the Nebilim weapon and Nebilim's Key which allows them to open the chests that contain Devil's Arms, and he asks them to find the others for him. Abyssion promises to seal them at the bottom level the Temple of Darkness once gathered. Presea Combatir shows discomfort when the Devil's Arms are gathered, however, and after obtaining the Disaster, Abyssion tells them of a legend that the Arms will sometimes choose a wielder and transform them into a magic swordsman under their control, though Abyssion says that they will be fine as long as they do not hear the Arms' voices.

Once all of the Devil's Arms are gathered, however, Abyssion uses them alongside the Necronomicon to revive the power of the Dark Lord Nebilim in his own body. Wielding the Devil's Arms themselves in battle, Abyssion is a formidable foe, but the party subdues him. In his defeat, Nebilim's darkness attempts to take over Presea, who can hear the Arms, but Colette Brunel's holy powers stop the possession, and Genis Sage uses Fireball to destroy the Necronomicon to prevent future incidents.

Tales of Xillia

Several decades prior to the events of Tales of Xillia, there lived a man named Trille, who had the ability to control monsters and was able to draw on monster's abilities. However, Trille yearned for more than his powers and tampered with several monsters' mana lobes. Over twenty years of research resulted in him creating six monsters that would grow stronger with every battle, able to cast new spirit artes. All six monsters had a weapon protruding from them and were considered living incarnations of the weapons. The weapons were dubbed "Devil's Arms", while the monsters were called "Devil's Beasts". Twenty years prior to the events of the story, Trille took his six creations to the battle at Fezebel Marsh; however, a tsunami hit and took the Trille and the Devil's Beasts.

The Devil's Arms consist of the following weapons:

Weapon Name Weapon Type Obtainment Method
Folzam, the Grudge-Bearer Gauntlets
Dranduo, the Howling Beast Sword
Vicehein, the Howler Broadsword
Tregatoria, the Bellowing Demon Rod
Meladentra, the Deathbringer Rapier
Padvent, the Incantor Staff

While initially these weapons may not be strong, their true potential can be unlocked after completing either side of the story and defeating Golden Mage Knight, who awaits at the end on Magnus Zero. Defeating him will unlock the Devil's Arms and allow them to grow in power accordingly to the number of kills performed by their respective wielders.

Tales of Xillia 2

In Tales of Xillia 2, to unlock Devil's Arms, the player must complete Tag Mode of Xian Du's coliseum with every character in Advanced Rank, complete the main story, and complete the Elite Rank in the coliseum's Tag Mode with each character the player wishes to have his or her Devil's Arm unlocked. Two Devil's Arms are acquired by methods different than than of the Elite Rank of the coliseum's Tag Mode. All weapons begin by default with 765 points in P.ATK and A.ATK, and as each weapon's respective owner kills enemies, the stronger the weapons grow, able to achieve 9,999 points in both P.ATK and A.ATK. All Devil's Arms, save Ludger Kresnik's, increase the damage that wielder receives.
