Lightning Tiger Blade (TotA)

Lightning Tiger Blade as it appears in Tales of the Abyss.

Lightning Tiger Blade (襲爪雷斬 Shuusouraizan?, "Attacking Claw Thunder Slash"[1]) is a classic technique and one of the most well-recognized elemental melee artes in the Tales series.

Arte Description and History

When Lightning Tiger Blade is used, the user slashes upward and jumps high into the air, summoning a large bolt of lightning to deal several hits to nearby enemies, before falling back to the ground. In Tales of Zestiria, while low to the ground, Rose performs a powerful upward slash with her right-hand dagger, launching her opponent. Then, while in the air, she performs a horizontal slash with her right-hand dagger. The arte is finished with Rose performing a powerful, downward slash with her left-hand dagger—an action that creates a thunderbolt to strike the enemy.

Despite what the arte's officially localized name seems to imply, this is not an attack that combines two lower-ranked artes. This is an individually-learned melee arte that does not rely on two separate artes to be mastered. This translation of the name has led to some frustration among the fan communities due to the continued use of this name, which many would argue would be better suited for an attack that combines Tiger Blade and Lightning Blade, which does exist, localized instead as Thunder Tiger Blade. Additionally, this arte should not be confused with the unrelated arte Lightning Tiger, a Lightning-elemental variant of Tiger Blade.
