Karmic Resonance (因果応報 Ingaouhou?, "Karmic Justice"), 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; another way to refer to it is "just desserts" or "poetic justice".
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.
