Toss Hammer (ポイハン Poihan?, "Poison Hammer"[1]) is an altered arte in the Tales series related to the Pow Hammer arte.

Arte Description and History

The user throws a hammer that is capable of inflicting the "Poison" status ailment on enemies, as opposed to Pow Hammer's "Stun". In Tales of Destiny 2, it is an enemy arte that tosses hammers that can poison the party. Rather than the traditional toy hammer, it instead utilizes wooden mallets. In Tales of Symphonia, it is a hidden altered arte that appears randomly when Pow Hammer or any other hammer arte has been used at least 200 times. The chance of it appearing, as well as succeeding in inflicting "Poison" on the enemy, increases with the amount of Luck.
