Arte Description and History
In Tales of Innocence, Ricardo transforms into his past incarnation, Hypnos. His bayonet weapon transforms into a large scythe, which he uses to slash the enemy twice from the left and from the right. He continues the attack by rotating his scythe, finishing with a final slash that creates a small burst of energy. The transformation sequence is removed in Tales of the World: Radiant Mythology 3, but his attack movements remain effectively the same.
In the re-imagination of the same game for the PlayStation Vita, the animation of this mystic arte changed. Ricardo aims his rifle downward and fires to create a dark chasm. He then transforms into his past life, Hypnos, attacking the enemy from the back with a series of slashes before dashing toward the enemy and ending with a cross-slash attack.
