Karmic Resonance (因果応報 Ingaouhou?), also localized as Vengeful Stance, is a recurring arte in the Tales series. The phrase "Ingaouhou" is a Japanese yojijukugo about karma, particularly the idea that good fortune will come to those who perform good deeds, and bad fortune for bad deeds.
Arte Description and History
In Tales of Graces, Solomus performs a strong burst of unblockable energy that blows back his target. He then follows this with a dashing thrust straight forward, covering the distance he knocked back his enemy. In Tales of Berseria, Rokurou Rangetsu enters a counterattack stance. If attacked, he will counter with either Vengeful Punishment or Vengeful Scourge, depending on the circumstances. In Tales of Phantasia: Narikiri Dungeon X, Norn prepares her mystic arte by raising her arms and performing a chant. She suddenly drops them as a circle of light bursts from her, and ripples of water form around the battlefield. The ripples then erupt into red light that damages enemies caught within them.
