Endless Waltz (双針乱舞 Soujinranbu?, "Twin Needle Riot Dance") and Dual Waltz (双刃乱舞 Soujinranbu?, "Twin Blade Riot Dance"), also localized as Dual Blade Dance, are recurring strike artes in the Tales series.
Arte Description and History
In Tales of Xillia 2, Endless Waltz starts with a clockwise back-spin that results in the user striking their target with their dual-blades diagonally upward to the right, then diagonally downward to the right, striking upward with their right-hand dual-blade and following with a left horizontal slash with their left-hand dual-blade. They then add a diagonal downward strike to the right with both their dual-blades, performing a counterclockwise spin-leap and striking the target a few times. Finally, they strike downward, performing a cross shape on the enemy and a back-flip while also striking the target with their right leg, all strikes followed by arcs of light.
Dual Waltz is a similar series of attacks used by Ludger Will Kresnik in his chromatus form, mixing spear strikes with kicks. In Tales of Berseria, the Dark Turtlez's Dual Waltz takes after Ludger's Endless Waltz.
