Arte Description and History
In its original form in Tales of Eternia, the targets are taken into space against a backdrop of a planet with a ring system. Waves of energy strike out at all targets, ending in an almighty flash. In Tales of Rebirth and Tales of Graces ƒ, the targets are sent to a dimensional rift as asteroids are being sucked into the void below them, striking them in the process.
When activated as an extension, Maxwell Minimus is performed after successfully pressing a series of buttons on the controller during the animation of the previous extension. If the buttons are not pressed in time, then Maxwell Minimus will not activate. Maxwell, the Greater Craymel who governs the power of Elemental magic in Tales of Eternia, and Tohma, the one who posses the Force of Magnet in Tales of Rebirth, have access to this arte without requiring the previous extensions. In all of its appearances in an arte chain, it is preceded by Nova Explosion and extends into Dimensional Material.
