Summon - Darkness (ToS)

Summon: Darkness as it appears in Tales of Symphonia.

Shadow (シャドウ Shadou?), along with Luna Shade (ルナシェイド Runasheido?) and Summon: Darkness (降霊召符・闇 Koureishoufu: Yami?), are artes that summon the Summon Spirit of Darkness, Shadow.

Arte Description and History

As the arte summoning the Summon Spirit of Dark, all of the artes are darkness-related. Shadow first appears in Tales of Phantasia under the command of Klarth F. Lester. When summoned, Shadow appears and wreaths the enemy in darkness. Summon: Darkness in Tales of Symphonia would have a similar effect, though Shadow also cures the party's status ailments. In Tales of Eternia, Shadow throws a lance of energy down the middle of the screen. Similarly with Luna Shade in Tales of Destiny 2, Shadow cuts the screen three times with an energy weapon.
