2. Introduction (Intrd)

Welcome to my Technique Guide for the best Gamecube RPG to date, and one of my 
favorite games ever, Tales of Symphonia! This guide should answer just about 
any question you could have about learning an using the huge assortment of 
techniques the game offers. If you find any flaws I didnít, E-mail me about 
them ASAP! Here are some flaws I HAVE found and need help/clarification with:
The elements of Indignation Judgment.
The damage done by the Destruction Techniques, Mass/Eternal Devastation, Fiery 
Infliction, and Eternal Damnation, as well as their elements.
A surefire way to activate Falconís Crest. (pressing A, B, and X almost never 
works)
In general, anything with a question mark near it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
3. FAQ (Frakq)

Q: Iím sure Iím doing everything right, but I canít get <insert character here> 
to learn <insert tech here>! Help me!
A: I have this problem, too. Keep trying; some techniques (especially low-level 
ones) require EXTREMELY repeated use of their prerequisite action to learn 
them. Make sure the technique is in blue on your list and youíve used the 
prerequisite enough. Also, if itís a Technique with no requirements (like 
Cyclone Seal or Rising Falcon), it can be learned by simply completing a battle 
with the user out of the active party.

Q: My question isnít answered in here!
A: E-mail me at dpitch40@cs.com or post your question on the GameFAQs message 
boards. If you e-mail me, please put ďToSĒ somewhere in the e-mail title or it 
will likely be deleted.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
4. An Introduction to Techniques (Aitte)

In Tales of Symphonia, the techniques are in-battle special attacks that keep 
the real-time battle system incredibly interesting and fun. At the expense of 
Technique Points (or TP), characters (and enemies) can unleash powerful special 
attacks that help to speed the demise of enemies. The Technique system is 
tremendously deep, with hundreds of attacks and spells to learn. Be aware, 
however, that you canít have all of them at once, even with the Tech Glitch 
illustrated in the final chapter. Depending on what EX Skills they have 
equipped, characters will slowly turn to the Technical or Strike (T and S) 
alignments as they battle. They will learn the techniques associated with the 
side they are on, but in most cases canít learn Techniques from both sides. 
Take note that no matter how far to either side they are, characters learn the 
same techniques the same way. (I think) To learn techniques on the other side, 
characters must change their EX Skills (and possibly equip a special ring) 
until they have switched to the other side, then forget the counterpart to the 
desired tech and earn the new one. Now, for a basic guide on how to use this, 
uh, guide:

Level T----------------<>----------------S   Requirements

50    Demonic Chaos       *Demonic Circle*   Use all Demon Fang Techs 50x

This part of the guide is a section made for quick browsing. It lets you learn 
what Techs characters learn at which levels and alignments, and their 
prerequisite moves. Afterwards, I go in depth with entries like these:

*DEMONIC CIRCLE*
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 38 TP
Level: 50
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 2 Slash, 2.5 Slash/4.5 total/3 hits
Requirement: Use Fierce Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Fierce Demon Fang
Description: Create a large shockwave in the surrounding area.
Lloyd issues a close-ranged shockwave combo attack that heavily damages all 
enemies in front of him. Quite a powerful attack indeed, but Demos Chaos has 
more range. Still, I prefer this one.

This more detailed entry starts with the name and classification of the 
technique. Next, it lists the TP it requires, the prerequisite level, then the 
damage it does and amounts of hits it has. The decimal-pointy numbers indicate 
how much damage a hit does relative to a normal attack and the x indicates the 
number of hits. 1.0 x 2 Slash, 2.5 Slash, for instance, means 2 hits of Slash 
damage at normal attack strength, and 2.5 means a single Slash hit of 2 and a 
half times the normal attack strength. (for Lloyd it is also listed whether the 
damage is Slash or Thrust) Be aware that spells donít have this, since theyíre 
based on Intelligence. Next is a more detailed description of the requirements 
for the move and the action that is required to learn (activate) the technique 
for the first time. Finally, there is a description of what the technique does 
and looks like from both the game and me. In both sections, I surround the move 
I prefer with asterisks. Not bad, huh?
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
5. Lloydís Techniques (Lotec)

Lloyd is all about sword techniques. He has no spells whatsoever, a distinction 
he shares with only Presea, but makes up for this with a variety of special 
attacks. He gains the first forms of all his Techniques at low levels, then 
stronger versions of them, and finally powerful special attacks that combine 
two of his Techniques.

Level T----------------<>----------------S   Requirements

1                  Demon Fang                None

N/A                  Guardian                Go to Triet Ruins with Kratos

DEMON FANG
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 4 TP
Level: 0
Damage: 1.2 Slash
Requirement: None
Description: Attack with a powerful shockwave (attack is linkable.)
This is Lloydís most basic Technique. He issues a shockwave that travels fairly 
fast around the ground, stopping when it hits an enemy close to or on the 
ground or the edge of the battlefield. It can be used to bombard enemies from 
long range, but since Lloyd is mainly a close-ranged character, itís best used 
as a cheap follow-up to an attack combo, although Sonic Thrust works better for 
this.

DOUBLE DEMON FANG
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 16 TP
Level: 16
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.05 x 2 Slash/2.1 total/2 hits
Requirement: Use Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Demon Fang
Description: Attack with two consecutive shockwaves.
This Technique is basically two Demon Fangs launched in rapid sequence. I 
definitely think Fierce Demon Fang is better, since this move isnít much faster 
and less powerful than just firing two separate Demon Fangs, and costs twice as 
much.

DEMONIC CHAOS
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 34 TP
Level: 50
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.2 x 2 Slash, 0.5 x 3 Slash/3.9 total/5 hits
Requirement: Use Demon Fang and Double Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Double Demon Fang
Description: Attack with multiple shockwaves and a finishing blow.
This technique is two full-strength Demon Fangs in rapid succession, followed 
by a third bigger shockwave that hits multiple times and keeps going after 
hitting the target. Pretty impressive, but I still like the Strike line better.

*FIERCE DEMON FANG*
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 15
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 4 Slash/2.4 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Demon Fang
Description: Create a large shockwave.
Fierce Demon Fang is definitely the better move of the two choices. Lloyd 
creates a shockwave ahead of him that hits any enemies in a radius in front 
several times. It has a short range, unlike Double Demon Fang, but itís still 
better. It also lets you get the powerful Grave Blade.

*DEMONIC CIRCLE*
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 38 TP
Level: 50
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 2 Slash, 2.5 Slash/4.5 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Fierce Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Fierce Demon Fang
Description: Create a large shockwave in the surrounding area.
Lloyd issues a close-ranged shockwave combo attack that heavily damages all 
enemies in front of him. Quite a powerful attack indeed, but Demos Chaos has 
more range. Still, I prefer this one.

SONIC THRUST
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 4
Damage: 1.4 Thrust
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Blow the enemy away with a powerful thrust.
Sonic Thrust is another extremely basic Technique. Lloyd thrusts one of this 
swords forward, doing good damage to any enemies directly in front of him and 
making them skid backwards a short distance. Itís a great move to follow attack 
combos up with and can be used often.

HURRICANE THRUST
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 18
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 Thrust, 1.2 Wind Thrust/2.2 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Sonic Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Sonic Thrust
Description: Make the enemy float with a powerful thrust.
This is a less powerful Sonic Thrust followed up by a Wind-element shockwave 
that hits all nearby enemies. Still, the range is limited, so the more damaging 
Super Sonic Thrust is better.

*SUPER SONIC THRUST*
Level 2 Strike Wind Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 18
Damage: 2.4 Thrust
Requirements: Use Sonic Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Sonic Thrust
Description: Blow the enemy away with a powerful thrust.
This is a bigger, more powerful version of Sonic Thrust, doing much more damage 
and blowing the target much farther back if it isnít destroyed immediately. It 
can also hit multiple enemies fairly well.

TIGER BLADE
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 9
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.8 x 2 Slash/1.6 total/2 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Two-hit slash slicing the enemy up and then down.
Tiger Blade is one of Lloydís more powerful level 1 Techniques. He executes an 
upward slash, making the enemy hop a short way into the air, then jumps up and 
sends them back down with a downward slash.

*TIGER RAGE*
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 19
Level: 27
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.7 Slash, 0.5 x 2 Slash, 0.7 Slash/2.4 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Tiger Blade at least 50 times
Activation: Tiger Blade
Description: Upward cut, then unleash multiple slashes,
Tiger Rage is an extremely cool-looking move: a regular Tiger Blade with a two-
part midair slash between the two normal hits. It doesnít do quite as much 
damage as Heavy Tiger Blade, but it doesnít knock the enemy down, either. 
Besides, it looks way to cool to pass up!

HEAVY TIGER BLADE
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 19
Level: 27
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 Slash, 1.5 Slash/2.5 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Tiger Blade at least 50 times
Activation: Tiger Blade
Description: Upward cut, then slam down with a downward cut.
This is just a more powerful Tiger Blade with a strong second slash that knocks 
the enemy to the ground. However, since this gives them a brief Over Limit when 
they get up, Tiger Rage is recommended.

TWIN TIGER BLADE
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 35
Level: 54
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.8 x 3 Slash, 1.6 Slash/4.0 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Heavy Tiger Blade at least 50 times
Activation: Tiger Blade
Description: Attack with multiple upward and downward slashes.
This powerful move is a regular Tiger Blade seamlessly followed by a Heavy 
Tiger Blade. Itís very powerful, and itís recommended that you use the Tech 
Glitch to get this and Tiger Rage.

SWORD RAIN
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 7
Level: 7
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.25 x 4 Thrust, 0.5 Thrust/1.5 total/5 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Attack the enemy with multiple thrusts.
This cool Technique consists of Lloyd rapidly stabbing anything in front of him 
4 times, followed by a stronger stab. Itís a fairly powerful Technique and good 
for combos.

SWORD RAIN: ALPHA
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 21
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.2 x 8 Thrust, 0.6 Slash/2.2 total/9 hits
Requirements: Use Sword Rain at least 50 times
Activation: Sword Rain
Description: Countless number of thrusts ending with an upward cut.
The Alpha variation of Sword Rain consists of twice as many rapid stabs, 
followed by half of a Tiger Blade. With 9 hits, this move is great for combos.

SWORD RAIN: BETA
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 38
Level: 59
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.3 x 9 Thrust, 0.6 x 2 Slash/3.9 total/11 hits
Requirements: Use Sword Rain: Alpha at least 50 times
Activation: Sword Rain: Alpha
Description: Countless number of thrusts with a final blow in midair.
Sword Rain: Beta is an even longer version of Sword Rain, with a whopping 9 
stabs followed by a full (albeit slightly weaker) Tiger Blade for massive 
damage. Itís also Lloydís best move for forming combos.

*SONIC SWORD RAIN*
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 21
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 2 Thrust, 0.15 x 3 Thrust, 0.4 Thrust, 1.05 
Thrust/2.9 total/7 hits
Requirements: Use Sword Rain at least 50 times
Activation: Sword Rain
Description: A countless number of thrusts that end with a powerful blow.
Sonic Sword Rain is a slightly expanded Sword Rain ending with a weakened Sonic 
Thrust. It does much more damage than Sword Rain: Alpha, so use the Tech Glitch 
to get this and Sword Rain: Beta.

TEMPEST
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 11
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.4 x 4 Slash/1.6 total/4 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Attack the enemy with a spiral cut.
This incredibly cool-looking Technique sends Lloyd into a flying somersault 
with his swords outstretched, pummeling enemies below him with hits and getting 
behind them. This move is both fairly powerful and incredibly cool-looking, but 
hard to hit with all 4 hits unless youíre attacking a large enemy. You may want 
to stick with the same-costed Tiger Blade for now.

*OMEGA TEMPEST*
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 17
Level: 24
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.3 x 7 Slash, 0.4 Slash/2.5 total/8 hits
Requirements: Use Tempest at least 50 times
Activation: Tempest
Description: Spin in the air and attack with invisible wind blades.
Omega Tempest is an expanded, ultra-cool version of Tempest. Lloyd goes flying 
forward with his swords, then turns around in midair and goes even higher, If 
he is still hitting the target after flying over them, he drags them into the 
air with them for more hits. It may be hard to hit with, but I never get tired 
of using this move.

PSI TEMPEST
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 17
Level: 24
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.4 x 6 Slash/2.4 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use Tempest at least 50 times
Activation: Tempest
Description: Attack with a spiral cut from the ground up.
Lloyd sure seems to like naming his Techniques after Greek characters, no? 
Anyway, Psi Tempest is a bigger version of Tempest, sending Lloyd flying 
incredibly far. This move is better for hitting multiple enemies in a line, 
since it canít get all 6 of its hits on one enemy unless itís huge. I prefer 
the coolness of Omega Tempest.

BEAST
Level 2 Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 14
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 Slash, 1.6 Slash/2.6 total/2 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Slam battle energy into the enemy and blow it away.
Beast is a powerful level 2 Technique that has Lloyd slamming the enemy with 
his shoulder, then releasing wild energy in the form of a beastís head. The 
two-stage attack does great damage for little TP, but knocks the enemy down, 
giving them a temporary Over Limit. Still, its high damage makes it worth 
using.

RAGING BEAST
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 25
Level: 30
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 2 Slash, 2.0 Slash/3.2 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Beast at least 50 times
Activation: Beast
Description: Pull in enemies with a spiral cut and slam with battle energy.
This attack is a spinning slash followed up by a more powerful Beast attack. 
Itís very powerful indeed, but as usual it knocks the enemy down. It can hit 
enemies in a wide area in front of Lloyd.

*HUNTING BEAST*
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 24
Level: 30
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 Slash, 1.2 Slash, 1.4 Slash/3.6 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Beast at least 50 times
Activation: Beast
Description: An upward cut and slam the earth to create a shockwave.
This is, in my opinion, the most powerful variant of Beast. It has Lloyd 
slamming the enemy, attacking it again as he jumps into the air, then crashing 
back down, creating a small shockwave that knocks down and damages all enemies 
around him. Itís an extremely powerful attack.

RISING FALCON
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 32
Level: 40
Damage: 3.2 Thrust
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Jump into the air and descend with a huge slash.
This standalone attack of Lloydís is pretty powerful. He jumps into the air, 
then somehow dive-bombs the enemy from the air, crashing through them and 
dealing heavy damage. If multiple enemies are lined up, Lloyd can damage all of 
them with this move. Besides doing damage, itís also useful for getting behind 
an opponent.

DEMONIC THRUST
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 30
Level: 32
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 2 Slash, 2.3 Thrust/3.5 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use all known Demon Fang and Sonic Thrust Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal Attack
Description: Combination of Demon Fang and Sonic Thrust.
Demonic Thrust is the first of Lloydís combination Techniques, which, 
obviously, combine two of his normal Techs for a stronger attack. Predictably, 
this one fires two weakened Demon Fangs that pass through enemies, then uses a 
powerful Sonic Thrust. Itís actually a good Technique, fairly powerful and easy 
to hit with. Still, Lloydís combo Techs get much better.

DEMONIC TIGER BLADE
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 32
Level: 35
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 2 Slash, 1.2 x 2 Slash/3.6 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use all known Demon Fang and Tiger Blade Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Demon Fang and Tiger Blade.
You probably guessed this: Demonic Tiger Blade is a weak, penetrating Double 
Demon Fang followed by a powerful Tiger Blade. Itís slightly more powerful then 
Demonic Thrust, and takes 2 more TP.

TEMPEST THRUST
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 32
Level: 38
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 5 Slash, 1.6 Thrust/4.1 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use all known Tempest and Sonic Thrust Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Sonic Thrust and Tempest.
This combo Tech is a vertical Tempest followed by a Sonic Thrust. It does great 
damage, but like all Tempest Techs is easiest to use on large enemies.

TEMPEST BEAST
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 35
Level: 41
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 5 Slash, 1.8 Slash/4.3 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use all known Tempest and Beast Techniques at least 50 times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Tempest and Beast.
This is another vertical Tempest followed by a Beast. It has the highest damage 
of any combo Tech, but as usual itís only good against bigger enemies that it 
can hit more. Also, it knocks the target down, so it may be best to stick with 
Tempest Thrust.

RAINING TIGER BLADE
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 36
Level: 44
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.2 x 9 Thrust, 0.9 x 2 Slash/3.6 total/11 hits
Requirements: Use all known Sword Rain and Tiger Blade Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Sword Rain and Tiger Blade.
This combo Tech is virtually identical to Sword Rain: Beta, only the Sword Rain 
is weaker and the Tiger Blade is stronger and authentic. It does less damage, 
so Sword Rain: Beta is probably better, once you learn it.

BEAST SWORD RAIN
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 38
Level: 47
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.25 x 8 Thrust, 2.0 Slash/4 total/9 hits
Requirements: Use all known Beast and Sword Rain Techniques at least 50 times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Beast and Sword Rain.
Lloydís most expensive combo Tech isnít necessarily his best. A Sword Rain 
followed by Beast, this attack does great damage and is easy to hit with, but 
like all Beast Techs it knocks the enemy down, limiting its effectiveness.

GUARDIAN
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Hits: N/A
Requirements: Visit the Triet Ruins with Kratos in your party
Description: Block most magic and weapon based attacks.
Guardian is Lloydís defensive Technique. It surrounds him in a green field of 
energy for a second or so, during which time he takes only 20% damage from 
attacks. However, because of its high cost, itís best used to block powerful 
spells if you canít run from them. Note that it can be used any time by 
pressing down on the control stick while blocking.

LIGHTNING THRUST
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: N/A
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.4 Thrust, 0.5 Lightning Thrust/1.9 damage/2 hits
Requirements: Use Sonic Thrust at least 200 times
Activation: Use Sonic Thrust with a Lightning-element weapon equipped
This Secret Technique is a Lightning version of Sonic Thrust, and Lloydís 
weaker version of Lightning Blade. Immediately after the Thrust, a bolt of weak 
lightning hits, doing slightly more damage. Itís at least better than nothing. 
To use it, use Sonic Thrust while doing Lightning damage, with a Lightning 
weapon, Sheenaís T Seal: Lightning, after using a Purple Quartz, or equipping 
the Sardonyx.

LIGHTNING TIGER
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: N/A
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.8 x 2 Slash, 0.8 Lightning Slash//2.4 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Tiger Blade at least 200 times
Activation: Use Tiger Blade with a Lightning-element weapon equipped
This move is just Tiger Blade immediately followed by a lightning strike. It 
does great damage for only 8 TP.

GRAVE BLADE
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: N/A
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6, 0.7 x 5/4.1 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use Fierce Demon Fang at least 200 times
Activation: Use Fierce Demon Fang with an Earth-element weapon equipped
Like Kratos, Lloyd can use the powerful Grave Blade Technique if heís fulfilled 
certain conditions. (his weapon must be doing Earth damage somehow, by being 
innately Earth-element, equipping the Ruby, or having used Sheenaís T Seal: 
Earth or a Yellow Quartz) Itís much stronger than Grave Blade and a very 
powerful Technique.

RISING PHOENIX
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 32
Level: N/A
Damage: 3.3 Fire Thrust
Requirements: Use Rising Falcon at least 200 times
Activation: Use Rising Falcon with a Fire-element weapon equipped
This fiery variant of Rising Falcon isnít much more powerful. Lloyd is 
surrounded by flames when he jumps into the air, and drags them behind them 
when he dives. However, it barely does any more damage than the original, so 
you shouldnít go out of your way to get it.

FALCONíS CREST
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 8, 2.5, 1.0 x 6, 5.0/21.5 total/16 hits
Requirements: Have Material Blade and Eternal Swordsman Title equipped; HP must 
be in red
Activation: Press A, B, and X at once
Falconís Crest is Lloydís incredibly powerful, ultimate Secret Technique. It 
unleashes the full power of the Eternal Sword in an incredible attack. First, 
he creates a shining circle of blue light around him that rapidly hits 
everything around him for devastating damage. He then jumps into the air as a 
blue panel flashes by with an intense picture of Lloydís face. After that, he 
creates multiple rings of light around him as he crashes down. He creates 
another shining circle for more damage, then finishes with a hemisphere of 
light that does a whopping 5 times his normal attack damage! As you would 
expect of any Secret Technique, this move is incredibly cool-looking. To 
activate the move, first hold down your assigned guard button. (I'm assuming 
it's B or X) Next, hold the button assigned to attack to make Lloyd attack 
once. (I'm assuming it's A) After he finishes the attack and resumes guarding, 
press the button for using a technique. You should have all 3 buttons pressed, 
activating the move! However, besides this fairly easy button sequence, you 
must fulfill some other criteria; Lloyd's HP must be in the red, and he must 
have the Eternal Swordsman Title and Material Blade equipped.

6. Coletteís Techniques -Cotec-

Coletteís Techniques are a bizarre mix of long-ranged special attacks, and she 
also has some spells in the form of the Angel Skills she learns during your 
journey in Sylvarant. She specializes in staying behind your melee fighters and 
inflicting damages using Techniques like Ray Thrust or Pow Hammer.

RAY THRUST
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 0
Damage: 1.3
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Throw a powerful chakram at the enemy.
Ray Thrust is Coletteís most basic Tech. She throws a fast-moving ring across 
the entire stage, and it damages any enemies it passes through. Itís Coletteís 
most basic technique for damaging enemies from afar with Special Attacks.

DUAL RAY THRUST
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 10
Level: 15
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.05 x 2/2.1 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Ray Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Ray Thrust
Description: Throw two powerful chakrams at the enemy.
Dual Ray Thrust throws 2 rings back-to-back with a short delay in between. Itís 
nothing more than an expanded version of Ray Thrust, and not too good.

TRIPLE RAY THRUST
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 36
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.2 x 3/3.6 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Dual Ray Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Dual Ray Thrust
Description: Throw multiple chakrams at the enemy.
In this Technique, Colette throws 3 rings in one smooth motion. They are evenly 
spaced in about a 60-70 degree arc in front of her. At long range, this 
Technique can hit several enemies at once. At close range, it can do massive 
damage to one enemy if itís large enough.

*RAY SATELLITE*
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 15
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.46 x 5/2.3 total/5 hits
Requirements: Use Ray Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Ray Thrust
Description: Holy a chakram in orbit.
In this variant of Ray Thrust, Colette throws a ring and makes it stop a short 
distance in front of her, spinning in place for a moment. Any enemy directly in 
front of her is rapidly pummeled by the ring and takes heavy damage. Though it 
has shorter range, I prefer this move to Dual Ray Thrust.

*TRIPLE RAY SATELLITE*
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 26
Level: 36
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 15/7.5 total/15 hits
Requirements: Use Ray Satellite at least 50 times
Activation: Ray Thrust
Description: Hold multiple chakrams in orbit.
This move throws 3 full-powered Ray Satellites in an arc. Though it does create 
a bigger area of effect, itís very hard to get all of them to deal full damage 
to an enemy.

POW HAMMER
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 8
Damage: 1.6
Requirements: None
Activation: Any attack
Description: Throw a hammer at the enemy.
This weird technique throws a cartoon hammer forward. It does great damage and 
has a better chance of stunning the target than normal. Itís hard to hit with, 
since it hits a certain point on the ground and only bounces for a short 
distance.

POW POW HAMMER
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 15
Level: 18
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 4/2.4 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Pow Hammer at least 50 times
Activation: Pow Hammer
Description: Throw multiple hammers at the enemy.
This attack tosses several Pow Hammers forward to hit the enemy multiple times. 
Itís pretty weak; Para Ball is far superior.

*HAMMER RAIN*
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 30
Level: 44
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 2, 1.0 x 9/10.0 total/11 hits
Requirements: Use Pow Pow Hammer at least 50 times
Activation: Pow Pow Hammer
Description: Hammers fall from the sky like rain.
In the strongest form of Pow Hammer, Colette throws a shining star forward into 
the air, which them explodes into a shower of hammers to blanket the area 
underneath with hits. It can hit groups of enemies several times, or deal 
massive damage to a bigger target.

*PARA BALL*
Level 2 Strike Lightning Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 18
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.5, 0.8 Lightning, 1.5, 0.8 Lightning/4.6 total/4 
hits
Requirements: Use Pow Hammer at least 50 times
Activation: Pow Hammer
Description: Lightning strikes when it makes contact with the enemy.
Quite possibly Coletteís strongest Technique, Para Ball throws two small, 
bouncing spheres that not only deal heavy damage but also cause lightning to 
strike on contact if theyíre unblocked. For only 14 TP, this attack deals 
massive damage and is easy to hit with. Itís vastly better than Pow Pow Hammer, 
but use the Tech Glitch to get this and Hammer Rain.

TORRENTIAL PARA BALL
Level 3 Strike Lightning Special Attack
TP Usage: 30
Level: 44
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5, 0.4 Lightning, 0.5, 0.4 Lightning, 0.5, 0.4 
Lightning, 0.5, 0.4 Lightning/3.6 total/8 hits
Requirements: Use Para Ball at least 50 times
Activation: Para Ball
Description: Multiple para balls strike the enemy with lightning.
You have to be kidding! Torrential Para Ball hits twice as many times as a 
regular Para Ball, but actually does less damage for over twice as much TP! 
Unless youíre going for combos, Para Ball is much better than its upgrade.

RING WHIRLWIND
Level 2 Special Attack
TP Usage: 11
Level : 12
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.7 x 3/2.1 total/3 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Spinning attack using chakrams in each hand.
With this Technique, Colette spins around multiple times with two rings 
outstretched to damage all enemies around her. It does great damage for only 11 
TP, but has short range.

RING CYCLONE
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 40
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.56 x 5/2.8 total/5 hits
Requirements: Use Ring Whirlwind at least 50 times
Activation: Ring Whirlwind
Description: Multiple spinning attack using chakrams in each hand.
This is a slightly stronger version of Ring Whirlwind with more hits. Whirlwind 
Rush is much better.

*WHIRLWIND RUSH*
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 40
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.7 x 3, 0.5 x 3/3.6 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use Ring Whirlwind at least 50 times
Activation: Ring Whirlwind
Description: Repeatedly attack the enemy in front and then spin attack.
Whirlwind Rush causes Colette to charge at the enemy and hack at them with her 
rings a few times, then go into a Ring Whirlwind. It does much more damage for 
Ring Cyclone for the same cost; itís much better.

ITEM THIEF
Level 2 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10
Level: 10
Damage: 2.0
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: A chance of stealing an item from the target.
This attack looks like a mistake at first; when using it, Colette trips, doing 
damage to anything in front of her as she falls. The attack does decent damage, 
but as its name suggests, it has the added feature of a chance of stealing a 
stealable item and/or Gald from the victim. However, even when unblocked, it 
has a terrible rate of success; if you plan on using it for anything other than 
damage, make sure to get Coletteís Item Getter Compound EX Skill.

ITEM ROVER
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 28
Damage: 3.0
Requirements: Use Item Thief at least 50 times
Activation: Item Thief
Description: A chance of stealing an item and Gald from the target.
Item Rover is just like Item Thief, but with greater damage and a slightly 
better chance for success. It still shouldnít be used without Item Getter, 
though.

GRAND CHARIOT
Level 3 Lightning Special Attack
TP Usage: 24
Level: 32
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 2, 2.0 Lightning/3.2 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use all known Pow Hammer and Ray Thrust Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal attack?
Description: Throw chakrams in a cross, causing lightning to strike.
This move is one of Coletteís two combination Techniques. This one combines her 
Ray Thrust and Pow Hammer series in a two-stage attack. First, two rings are 
thrown at the target; then a bolt of lightning strikes. It does decent damage 
and is a solid Technique.

STARDUST CROSS
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 34
Level: 50
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5, 0.4 x 13/5.7 total/14 hits
Requirements: Use all known Pow Hammer and Ring Whirlwind Techniques at least 
50 times
Activation: Normal attack?
Description: Multiple stars fall from overhead.
With her second combination Technique, Colette throws a star into the air, 
which then shoots a rain of yellow shiny things down forward, hopefully onto 
the target. It can hit larger targets more times like Hammer Rain and is great 
for combos on them.

DAMAGE GUARD
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Hits: N/A
Requirements: Visit the Triet Ruins with Kratos in your party
Description: Defend against most attacks and magic.
Damage Guard works exactly like Lloydís Guardian skill.

ANGEL FEATHERS
Light Angel Skill
TP Usage: 20
Level: N/A
Hits: 3
Requirements: Beat the Triet Ruins
Activation: None
Description: Rings of light appear and attack the enemy.
This is Coletteís first Angel Skill, and is quite powerful early in the game. 
It takes a good time to cast and has a mid-length incantation. (likely the 
first one youíll hear in the game) When used, it darkens the screens except the 
combatants and displays, then fires 3 rings charged with pinking-purple angelic 
energy at the target. They will home in on it and usually all 3 will hit for 
massive damage. Itís eclipsed by her later Angel Skills, however.

HOLY SONG
Support Angel Skill
TP Usage: 35
Level: N/A
Requirements: Break any 3 Seals
Activation: None
Description: Increases defense and offense of the entire party for a time.
This Angel Skill is an extremely useful support spell, much better than 
anything Raine has. Too bad Colette will NEVER use it unless you specifically 
command her to. Anyway, when used, it sends out a pink-purple shockwave that 
temporarily boosts the attack and defense power of all your active party 
members. Also, the indicator for the stat boosts bestowed is different from 
that of Raineís support spells, so they can stack up. Youíll want to command 
her to use it plenty, so that you can unlock Holy Judgment.

SACRIFICE
Light Healing Angel Skill
TP Usage: 150
Level: N/A
Hits: 2
Requirements: Beat the Tower of Mana
Activation: None
Description: Attack all enemies and heal all members in exchange for your life.
This is an incredibly powerful Angel Skill, second only to Holy Judgment. When 
activated, it darkens the battlefield and creates a large blue magic circle 
around Colette as she floats upwards surrounded by spirals of multicolored 
light. Every enemy is surrounded by bright white rays of light that do two-
stage Light damage to them, similar to Photon and doing about the same damage. 
It simultaneously heals every party member (except her) for 30% of their 
maximum HP. However, besides its massive TP cost, this move has another 
downside: after the circle disappears, Colette floats to the ground and 
collapses, dead. Have Raine cast Resurrection or use a Life Bottle to get her 
back into the action immediately after using this spell.

JUDGMENT
Light Angel Skill
TP Usage: 40
Level: N/A
Hits: 15
Requirements: Enter the Tower of Salvation for the first time
Activation: None
Description: Attack all enemies with the light of Judgment.
Judgment is Coletteís most powerful Angel Skill (except Holy Judgment, of 
course) and the last one she learns. It darkens the screen and causes a total 
of 15 beams of light to rain from above randomly onto the field, each one doing 
at least 1000 damage! Obviously itís very powerful, although itís not 
guaranteed to hit every enemy. It doesnít take too long to cast (shorter than 
for Kratos... >=() and is a worthy Technique.

TOSS HAMMER
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: N/A
Damage: 1.6
Requirements: Use Pow Hammer at least 200 times
Activation: Occurs randomly
Fairly often when using Pow Hammer for at least the 200th time, Colette will 
instead throw a poisoned green Toss Hammer. It does the same damage, but may 
poison the enemy. (in fact, itís the only Technique that can)

ICE HAMMER
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: N/A
Damage: 1.6
Requirements: Use Pow Hammer at least 200 times
Activation: Use Pow Hammer with an ice weapon equipped
Ice Hammer is Coletteís only elemental secret attack. It does the same damage 
as Pow Hammer and does elemental damage. Use the same methods as Lloyd and 
Kratos/Zelosí attacks to use it.

HOLY JUDGMENT
Secret Light Support Angel Skill
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 15?
Requirements: Use Judgment and Holy Song at least 50 times each
Activation: Use either Tech again; happens randomly
Holy Judgment is a combination of Holy Song and Judgment, and Coletteís 
insanely strong secret Tech. At random, rare times, sheíll use this spell 
instead of Holy Song or Judgment. She starts by ďmistakenlyĒ using an unknown 
spell and creating a small blue magic circle around herself. As with Lloydís 
Falconís Crest Tech, a yellow bar appears on the top of the screen with 
Coletteís face on it. (sticking her tongue out...O_o) After that, Holy Song and 
Judgment are used simultaneously to deadly effect, boosting everyoneís attack 
and defense, and raining down beams of light that do SEVERAL THOUSAND damage 
each to enemies! This Technique can inflict insanely massive damage, especially 
for a mistake. An easy way to use it is to control Colette, set Holy Song to 
neutral B/X or the C-stick, then repeatedly use it in battle, canceling it if 
the ďtargetĒ indicator appears above her. If it doesnít appear, sheís going to 
use Holy Judgment. Just keep trying until this happens and watch the 00berness 
unfold.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
7. Genisí Techniques -Getec-

Genis is the Black Mage of ToS. All his Techniques are spells that damage the 
enemy with elemental power. (except for Meteor Storm, which utterly annihilates 
the enemy with nonelemental power) He has a completely different set of Techs 
for his Technical and Strike sides-Technical spells tend to do less damage in a 
wider area, while Strike spells deal heavy, focused damage-so choose wisely or 
use the Tech Glitch, which lets you get all of Genisí S-Techs and his level 3 
T-Techs.

AQUA EDGE
Novice Water Magic
TP Usage: 8
Level: 7
Hits: 3 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Create a small stream and slash with its water pressure.
Aqua Edge is Genisí most basic spell. It takes little time to cast like all of 
his Novice-level spells, but is fairly weak. The spell crates 3 discs of water 
that spiral away from Genis and fly at the target. If there are other enemies 
in the way, they hit that enemy and keep going. Unfortunately, they can only 
hit targets close to or on the ground, and can miss if the target moves.

*SPREAD*
Mid Technical Water Magic
TP Usage: 22
Level: 17
Hits: 4 hits
Requirements: Use Aqua Edge at learn 50 times
Activation: Aqua Edge
Description: Unleash compressed water upwards.
Spread is by far Genisí best mid-level water spell. After a brief pause, it 
creates a huge geyser of water underneath the target, sending it and any 
adjacent enemies flying into the air and dealing very heavy damage to them. 
Unfortunately, while it is incredibly powerful, Aqua Laser is required for 
Genisí T-line, so itís the one you should probably get in the end.

TIDAL WAVE
Advanced Technical Water Magic
TP Usage: 60
Level: 38
Hits: 12 hits
Requirements: Use Spread at least 50 times
Activation: Spread
Description: A great flood that attacks all enemies in its path.
Prepare to be wowed. Tidal Wave is Genisí first Advanced Spell for his T-line 
(except Raging Mist), and itís one of the most visually impressive. It 
surrounds the entire battlefield in a massive cascade of water, pummeling any 
enemies on the ground with water damage no matter where they are. 
Unfortunately, it canít hit anything thatís not touching the ground, so its 
usefulness is limited. Make sure to attack any floating enemies and ground them 
before he casts it, or just stick with something else.

AQUA LASER
Mid Strike Water Magic
TP Usage: 20
Level: 17
Hits: 3 hits
Requirements: Use Aqua Edge at least 50 times
Activation: Aqua Edge
Description: A high-pressure stream pierces all enemies in its sight.
Genisí S-type water spell is slightly inferior to Spread, but it opens up far 
more Techniques. The spell is fairly visually unimpressive; it fires a large 
bolt of water in a line at enemies, like a giant version of Aqua Edge. The bolt 
hits every enemy it passes through 3 times for excellent damage and will keep 
going until it reaches the edge of the battlefield. Be aware: it can miss its 
target entirely, since Genis ďaimsĒ the laser when he starts casting the spell. 
If it moves or is destroyed, the laser will completely miss. Still, this rarely 
happens, and since it has a wide line of fire, itís great for blasting through 
heated battles and taking out virtually everything in its path. Spread only 
beats this spell by a narrow margin.

FIRE BALL
Novice Fire Magic
TP Usage: 7
Level: 1
Hits: 3 hits
Requirement: None
Description: Unleash 3 fireballs upon the target.
This is Genisí most basic spell. It works much like Aqua Edge; basically, Genis 
sends 3 fireballs flying at the target, each dealing a small amount of fire 
damage. Unlike with Aqua Edge, if another enemy gets in the way, the fireballs 
will hit that enemy instead. Luckily, the fireballs almost make up for this by 
automatically homing in on their target. Because of its slow speed, bad 
accuracy, and lack of power, itís best not to depend on Fire Ball too much.

*ERUPTION*
Mid Technical Fire Magic
TP Usage: 24
Level: 23
Hits: 3 hits
Requirement: Use Fire Ball at least 50 times
Activation: Fire Ball
Description: Lava surrounds the target.
Eruption is a powerful spell indeed, although you should stick with the almost-
as-good Flame Lance for the same reason as Aqua Laser. Anyway, this spell 
creates a miniature volcano under the target, hitting it and any nearby enemies 
with 3 successive waves of lava and sending them flying.

EXPLOSION
Advanced Technical Fire Magic
TP Usage: 55
Level: 56
Hits: 1 hit
Requirement: Use Eruption at least 50 times
Activation: Eruption
Description: A huge ball of fire falls and causes a huge explosion.
This incredibly powerful spell is Genisí strongest fire Tech, dealing more 
damage in one hit than anything except Indignation. It sends a fireball 
streaking down from above. When it hits the target, it makes a massive, what 
else, explosion that can deal in excess of 3000-4000 damage! If anything 
manages to survive the blast, theyíre sent flying far and knocked down from the 
force of the explosion. While this Tech isnít as strong as Indignation, it has 
a shorter delay and costs slightly less.

FLAME LANCE
Mid Strike Fire Magic
TP Usage: 24
Level: 23
Hits: 2 hits
Requirements: Use Fire Ball at least 50 times
Activation: Fire Ball
Description: A spear of flame falls from the sky, causing an explosion.
This cool-looking spell sends a fiery sword flying down diagonally, crashing 
into the enemy, and embedding in the ground. After a brief pause, it explodes, 
dealing good damage in an area of effect and sending any nearby enemies flying 
to the ground.

WIND BLADE
Novice Wind Magic
TP Usage: 8
Level: 5
Hits: 3 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Create blades of wind around the target.
Wind Blade is the basic wind spell. It slices the target with 3 blades of air 
for little damage. If the target is moving fast enough, the spell can be 
dodged.

AIR THRUST
Mid Technical Wind Magic
TP Usage: 22
Level: 20
Hits: 7
Requirements: Use Wind Blade at least 50 times
Activation: Wind Blade
Description: Blades of wind surround and slice the target.
This deadly Wind spell surrounds the target with razor-sharp wind blades and 
pummels it, dealing heavy damage and even lifting it up into the air. The 
attack can also hit other enemies, as long as they are close by.

CYCLONE
Advanced Technical Wind Magic
TP Usage: 50
Level: 50
Hits: 12
Requirements: Use Air Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Air Thrust
Description: Create a cyclone around the target.
The strongest Wind-type spell, Cyclone is a powerful, extremely cool-looking 
Technique indeed. Predictably, it creates a towering green tornado around the 
target, pummeling it with countless, powerful Wind hits and lifting it high 
into the air. The spell also has a decent area of effect, so nearby enemies 
will also feel the pain. This spell is the #1 cause of slowdown in the game, 
but I just like to call it the Matrix effect.

*AIR BLADE*
Mid Strike Wind Magic
TP Usage: 22
Level: 20
Hits: 3
Requirements: Use Wind Blade at Least 50 times
Activation: Wind Blade
Description: Compressed air slices through the enemy.
Air Blade is exactly like Aqua Laser, only green. It also seems to be slightly 
stronger than the already-strong Aqua Laser, doing even more damage to multiple 
enemies with ease.

STONE BLAST
Novice Earth Magic
TP Usage: 7
Level: 3
Hits: 3
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Raise stones beneath the target.
Genisí basic Earth spell is fairly unimpressive. It causes several rocks to 
strike the target from underneath for multiple hits. Like with Wind Blade, it 
can miss if the target is moving fast enough.

*STALAGMITE*
Mid Technical Earth Magic
TP Usage: 20
Level: 14
Hits: 5
Requirements: Use Stone Blast at least 50 times
Activation: Stone Blast
Description: Raise sharp rocks and pierce the target.
Stalagmite is definitely one of the cooler mid-level spells, though not as 
awesome as Grave. Anyway, this Technique causes pointy rocks to jut from the 
ground in a fairly large area of effect around the target, dealing damage 
repeatedly and tossing enemies up into the air. Unlike Grave, Stalagmite is 
good at hitting multiple targets, and does it well. And donít worry: no matter 
which one you pick, you still get to hear Genis say ďPancake time!Ē

GROUND DASHER
Advanced Technical Earth Magic
TP Usage: 46
Level: 46
Hits: 10
Requirements: Use Stalagmite at least 50 times
Activation: Stalagmite
Description: Call upon the destructive energy of the earth.
There isnít much to say here, other than that Ground Dasher is an awesome-
looking, powerful Earth spell. It opens a huge chasm under the target, then 
blasts everything around it endlessly with superheated air and rocks, dealing 
very heavy Earth damage.

GRAVE
Mid Strike Earth Magic
TP Usage: 22
Level: 14
Hits: 5
Requirements: Use Stone Blast at least 50 times
Activation: Stone Blast
Description: Raise spears of rock and pierce the target.
When Genis uses Grave, itís really pancake time; the enemy will get flipped 
around and pummeled by rocks. (well, maybe that last part doesnít have much to 
do with pancakes) Anyway, this spell uses a sharp, long rock to send the target 
flying up into the air. As it falls back down, 4 more rocks jut out from all 
around the first for additional damage. It looks cool and does good damage, but 
unfortunately Grave has no potential at all for hitting multiple targets.

LIGHTNING
Novice Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 9
Level: 9
Hits: 1 hit
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Create a small bolt of lightning to strike the target.
Lightning is Genisí basic lightning spell, obviously. You can probably guess 
what it does: strike the target with lightning, dealing a small amount of 
damage. Like Stone Blast and Wind Blade, it hits instantly, but has no 
potential for hitting multiple targets.

*THUNDER BLADE*
Mid Technical Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 28
Level: 26
Hits: 4
Requirements: Use Lightning at least 50 times
Activation: Lightning
Description: Thrust a sword of thunder and create lightning.
Thunder Blade is an electric version of Flame Lance. A huge sword made of 
lightning pierces the enemy and embeds in the ground, then explodes, sending 
electric shockwaves along the ground and hitting everything in a good-sizes 
area 3 more times. As cool as this spell is, Spark Wave is still required for 
the Tech Glitch. Relax, you can still get...

INDIGNATION
Advanced Technical Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 60
Level: 60
Hits: 1
Requirements: Use Thunder Blade at least 50 times
Activation: Thunder Blade
Description: Drop the lightning of god around the target.
If Genis is this powerful when heís indignant, Iíd hate to see him when heís 
angry. Indignation is Genisí second-strongest spell, dealing more damage in one 
hit than virtually anything else. (except maybe Preseaís Beast) This awe-
inspiring spell creates a blinding magic circle around the target. After a long 
pause of several seconds, a HUGE bolt of lightning strikes, hitting everything 
in the circle for insane damage, even more than Explosion. If anything actually 
survives the blast, itís knocked to the ground. Now, enjoy the 00berness.

SPARK WAVE
Mid Strike Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 26
Level: 26
Hits: 8 hits
Requirements: Use Lightning at least 50 times
Activation: Lightning
Description: Create an area of charged enemy.
Thunder Blade may look cooler, but Spark Wave is arguably just as strong and 
required for Genisí coolest Strike Techs. It creates a large sphere of 
electricity, rapidly zapping the target and any adjacent enemies for great 
Lightning damage.

ICICLE
Novice Ice Magic
TP Usage: 10
Level: 11
Hits: 2 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Raise icicles beneath the target.
Icicle, predictably, is the basic Ice spell. It creates some sharp ice under 
the target, then shatters it for more damage. Itís fairly weak, with no area of 
effect.

*ICE TORNADO*
Mid Technical Ice Magic
TP Usage: 30
Level: 29
Hits: 6 hits
Requirements: Use Icicle at least 50 times
Activation: Icicle
Description: Engulf the target in a storm of ice.
Think of Ice Tornado as Cycloneís smaller, colder little bother. It issues a 
brief tornado made of ice that pummels enemies in a big area of effect and 
lifts them into the air. Itís very useful for fighting multiple enemies weak to 
Ice, but Freeze Lancer is more preferable because it lets you get Absolute. 
Besides, there is no Advanced Ice Tech to look forward to anyway.

FREEZE LANCER
Mid Strike Ice Magic
TP Usage: 29
Level: 29
Hits: 6 hits
Requirements: Use Icicle at least 50 times
Activation: Icicle
Description: Pummel the target with numerous lances of ice.
Freeze Lancer is a powerful Ice spell that pummels a single enemy with multiple 
flying ice crystals, Unfortunately, it has virtually no multi-hitting 
potential. On the other hand, it lets you get Absolute, so I recommend it for 
that purpose.

RAGING MIST
Advanced Technical Fire/Water Magic
TP Usage: 38
Level: 35
Hits: 5
Requirements: Learn Eruption and Spread
Activation: Eruption or Spread
Description: Create a hot mist around the enemy.
This rather bizarre spell creates a huge circle of burning mist around the 
target, Every second or so, every enemy on it takes good fire/water damage, but 
doesnít flinch from it. This spell has one of the biggest areas of effect of 
any spell, so itís pretty powerful.

GRAVITY WELL
Advanced Technical Lightning/Earth Magic
TP Usage: 42
Level: 42
Hits: 8
Requirements: Learn Thunder Blade and Stalagmite
Activation: Thunder Blade or Stalagmite
Description: Create a heavy gravity space around the target.
Gravity Well is definitely one of the cooler spells, and is quite powerful. It 
creates a dark, energy-laced hemisphere around the target and surrounding area, 
then crushes everything inside under its own weight. The Technique is 
considerably more powerful than Raging Mist, but much more localized.

SPIRAL FLARE
Advanced Strike Fire/Wind Magic
TP Usage: 38
Level: 35
Hits: 5 hits
Requirements: Learn Flame Lance and Air Blade
Activation: Flame Lance or Air Blade
Description: A spiral or flame attacks the enemy.
Spiral Flare works exactly like Aqua Laser and Air Blade, only itís orange and 
even more powerful. If any enemies manage to survive it, they get sent flying 
an knocked down.

THUNDER ARROW
Advanced Strike Lightning/Fire Magic
TP Usage: 42
Level: 40
Hits: 10 hits
Requirements: Learn Spark Wave and Flame Lance
Activation: Spark Wave or Flame Lance
Description: Create 3 balls of lightning around the target.
Thunder Arrow is my personal favorite ďhybridĒ Strike spell for good reason. It 
surrounds the target in a small triangle of lightning, then shocks the heck out 
of everything inside it with a massive, continuous bolt of lightning. Can you 
say ďOuch?Ē

DREADED WAVE
Advanced Earth Magic
TP Usage: 34
Level: 32
Hits: 8 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Create a localized earthquake under the target.
A standalone Earth spell with no counterparts from the other elements or 
different levels? Where did this come from? Anyway, Dreaded Wave is a pretty 
powerful (and unexplained) Earth spell. It creates a localized earthquake 
around the target, pummeling it and nearby enemies with rocks and vibrations.

ATLAS
Advanced Strike Wind/Water Magic
TP Usage: 42
Level: 48
Hits: 9 hits
Requirements: Learn Wind Blade and Aqua Laser
Activation: Wind Blade or Aqua Laser
Description: Envelop the target with wind.
This cool-looking spell is a deadlier version of Air Thrust, surrounding the 
target in a focused storm of wind and water and dealing heavy damage. It can 
hit other enemies if theyíre extremely close to the target.

ABSOLUTE
Advanced Strike Ice/Earth Magic
TP Usage: 46
Level: 44
Hits: 2 hits
Requirements: Learn Freeze Lancer and Grave
Activation: Freeze Lancer or Grave
Description: Deep-freeze the target to extremely low temperatures.
Absolute is the strongest Ice spell in the game. Itís much like a larger-scale 
version of Icicle; it encases the target in a huge ice crystal, then shatters 
it for massive damage that can exceed 3000! If the target moves quickly enough, 
the attack can be dodged, however.

EARTH BITE
Advanced Strike Earth/Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 44
Level: 53
Hits: 10
Requirements: Learn Grave and Spark Wave
Activation: Grave or Spark Wave
Description: Fangs of the earth crush the enemy.
Earth Bite is a cool-looking blend of Earth and Lightning magic. It creates a 
small sphere of electricity to rapidly shock the target much like Spark Wave, 
then causes the earth to close up around it, doing much more damage.

PRISM SWORD
Advanced Strike Light Magic
TP Usage: 58
Level: 58
Hits: 7
Requirements: Learn Absolute and Atlas
Activation: Absolute or Atlas
Description: Holy prism swords blessed by light fall from the sky.
Prism Sword is a very powerful spell, and since itís Genisí only source of 
light damage, itís very higher recommended. Basically, Prism Sword is a 
combination of Judgment and Holy Lance. It creates a large circle of light 
around the target, then causes extremely powerful beams of light to rain down 
randomly in the circle, followed by a more powerful beam directly in the 
center. Everything in the circle is assured of getting hit at least once, 
unlike with Judgment, and it can hit multiple targets easily, unlike Holy 
Lance. Make sure to use this spell plenty on enemies weak against Light!

METEOR STORM
Advanced Magic
TP Usage: 80
Level: N/A
Hits: 14 hits
Requirements: Speak with elves in eastern Heimdall after getting the Derris 
Emblem
Description: Call upon a meteor shower.
Meteor Storm is, by far, Genisí most powerful spell. (except for Indignation 
Judgment, but thatís a secret Tech) It may not do elemental damage and takes a 
whopping 80 TP, but the results are well worth it. This incredibly deadly 
Technique sends a total of 14 meteors raining down randomly onto the 
battlefield and utterly destroying all enemies on it. Each one does a massive 
amount of damage, and enemies will usually be hit at least twice during the 
spell. (more if theyíre big) Because of its tremendous TP cost and lack of 
focus, Meteor Storm is best turned off for boss fights.

FORCE FIELD
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Hits: N/A
Requirements: Visit the Triet Ruins with Kratos in your party
Description: Defend against most attacks and magic.
Like all the other ďGuardianĒ spells, Force Field uses 10% of Genisí maximum TP 
to shield him in a green barrier, preventing 80% of the damage of any attack. 
Itís best used to avoid damage from powerful spells you canít evade.

INDIGNATION JUDGMENT
Secret Lightning/Light? Magic
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 10 hits?
Requirements: Use Indignation at least 50 times
Activation: Use Indignation while in Over Limit
Indignation is by far Genisí coolest and most powerful spell. Itís also his 
only secret Technique. To use it, you need to have used Indignation at least 50 
times, then use it again while in Over Limit. The already powerful spell will 
be replaced by this even more powerful one. As its name suggests, this spell 
combines the strongest Lightning Technique with one of the strongest Light 
Techniques to form an incredibly powerful, focused spell. First, it creates a 
massive magic circle underneath the target. The unlucky victim is then 
bombarded continuously with a huge bolt of lightning, followed by a MASSIVE 
sword (a real one with a cool hilt, not one made of electricity) crashing down 
on it. Genisí face appears on a grey bar briefly, then the attack ends with a 
final, incredibly massive lightning strike. You have to see it to believe it.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
8. Raineís Techniques -Ratec-

If Genis is the Black Mage, his older sister is the White Mage. Raineís 
Techniques are almost entirely healing and support spells, but she also has a 
few Light-element attack spells. Since sheís such a good healer, Raine should 
always be in your active party when you have her. Also, notice her Tech chart: 
I think every spell in her T-line is superior to the S-line ones. Thus, unless 
you do the Tech Glitch, you should definitely stay on Raineís Technical side.

FIRST AID
Novice Healing Magic
TP Usage: 8
Level: 1
Requirements: None
Description: Heal one party member.
First Aid is the most basic healing spell. It heals any one party member for 
30% of their maximum HP, and isnít based on intelligence. (to select a target, 
move the ďTargetĒ marker around your party membersí portraits as the spell is 
being cast) This and its low cost means the spell is fairly useful all through 
the game, especially for minor wounds or use out of battle. Still, both the 
Technical and Strike lines improve on this spell in different ways.

*NURSE*
Mid Technical Healing Magic
TP Usage: 28
Level: 26
Requirements: Use First Aid at least 50 times
Activation: First Aid (note: activating Nurse can take a long time)
Description: Heal all party members.
Nurse is, in my opinion, Raineís best healing spell. It has a relatively low 
casting cost (especially for someone with high TP like Raine) and doesnít take 
long to cast. When used, this versatile spell sends some actual nurses running 
around. After a delay of a few seconds, everyone in your active party is healed 
for 40% of their maximum HP. This spell is great for just about anything, since 
your characters will likely be getting pounded all at once. Like all of Raineís 
spells, it can also be used out of battle, in which case it heals your ENTIRE 
party, active and non-active. In my opinion, Nurse is far superior to Heal.

*HEALING CIRCLE*
Advanced Technical Healing Magic
TP Usage: 56
Level: 42
Requirements: Use Nurse at least 50 times
Activation: Nurse
Description: Substantially heal all party members within a given area.
Healing Circle is a powerful, focused healing spell, though not as much of 
either as Raineís Strike line. It creates a fairly large blue circle of healing 
about the size of a Stalagmite or Eruption. Everyone standing inside the circle 
is healed 4 times for 15% of their HP each. (thatís a total of 60% of their max 
HP for you underaged FAQ browsers) Healing Circle is best used for tight combat 
situations where all your melee fighters are gathered together, like a boss 
battle. If your characters are all over the battlefield, stick with Nurse.

*REVITALIZE*
Advanced Technical Healing Magic
TP Usage: 96
Level: 50
Requirements: Use Healing Circle at least 50 times
Activation: Healing Circle
Description: Substantially heal all party members.
As the only fourth-level spell in the game, Revitalize takes Raineís Technical 
healing concept TO THE EXTREME!11!!11! It creates a giant healing circle that 
covers the entire field, which heals everyone for 70% of their maximum HP after 
a brief delay. Obviously, this kind of healing is extremely useful; if you spam 
this in boss battles, itís almost impossible to die. Unfortunately, its 
downright ridiculous cost makes it prohibitively expensive unless you have a 
Faerie Ring.

HEAL
Mid Strike Healing Magic
TP Usage: 20
Level: 26
Requirements: Use First Aid at least 50 times
Activation: First Aid (note: like Nurse, Heal can take a while to activate)
Description: Substantially heal one party member.
While Raineís Technical spells tend to focus on bestowing weaker stat boosts of 
healing on multiple characters, her Strike spells reverse this, benefiting one 
ally greatly. Heal is the beginning of this, healing one ally for 60% of their 
HP. While it is very effective at keeping one ally alive, itís unlikely every 
enemy will just focus on one party member for you to maximize the effectiveness 
of the spell. Itís best to stick with Nurse.

CURE
Advanced Strike Healing Magic
TP Usage: 64
Level: 42
Requirements: Use Heal at least 50 times
Activation: Heal
Description: Fully heal a party member.
Cure is an expanded version of Heal, fully healing one ally for 100% of their 
maximum HP. Healing Circle, in my opinion, is better, for the same reasons as 
Heal. 64 TP to heal one character is ridiculous!

REVIVE
Advanced Strike Healing Magic
TP Usage: 96
Level: 50
Requirements: Use Cure at least 50 times
Activation: Cure
Description: Automatically revive a fallen member (one time only).
Revive has a very interesting effect: it surrounds the target in a rainbow aura 
that automatically resurrects them when they die. Still, it isnít much better 
than Cure for 3/2 of the cost, so unless you use the Tech Glitch to get both, 
stick with Revitalize.

RESURRECTION
Advanced Healing Magic
TP Usage: 48
Level: N/A
Requirements: Visit Lake Umacy after making a pact with Undine
Description: Resurrect a fallen party member.
Resurrection has a unique and self-explanatory power: it can bring a character 
back from the dead. Make sure to somehow heal them quickly, since they donít 
have very much HP after being revived. This move still isnít a total substitute 
to Life Bottles, because of its slow speed.

RECOVER
Novice Healing Magic
TP Usage: 12
Level: 12
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Heal a party memberís physical ailments.
Recover is a very useful spell indeed; once you have it, youíll never use a 
Panacea Bottle again. This spell can cure any physical ailment, like Poison or 
Petrification. Luckily, Raine learns it very early.

*PURIFY*
Mid Technical Healing Magic
TP Usage: 24
Level: 32
Requirements: Use Recover 50x
Activation: Recover
Description: Cure physical ailments within a given area.
Purify is an area-effect version of Recover, creating a large circle of 
healing, then curing the physical ailments of everyone standing on it.

RESTORE
Mid Strike Healing Magic
TP Usage: 24
Level: 32
Requirements: Use Recover 50x
Activation: Recover
Description: Heal and immunize a target to Physical Ailments for a time.
Restore not only heals the physical ailments of a character, but also makes 
them immune for a short time. Despite this, Purify is better.

DISPEL
Novice Healing Magic
TP Usage: 16
Level: 16
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Dispel a party memberís magical ailments.
Dispel is Recover with magical ailments; it heals any of them for one 
character. You probably wonít use this spell too much, but itís good to have 
around.

*NULLIFY*
Mid Technical Healing Magic
TP Usage: 28
Level: 38
Requirements: Use Dispel 50x
Activation: Dispel
Description: Dispel all party membersí magical ailments.
Nullify is much like Purify for magical ailments, except it automatically 
Dispels your entire party, not just in an area of effect. Like Dispel, itís 
good to have around, but you probably wonít use it much except when youíre up 
against Acid Raining Samaels in Derris-Kharlan.

ANTI-MAGIC
Mid Strike Healing Magic
TP Usage: 28
Level: 38
Requirements: Use Dispel 50x
Activation: Dispel
Description: Dispel and immunize a target to Magical Ailments for a time.
You probably saw this coming: Anti-Magic Dispels one character and makes them 
immune to magical ailments temporarily. Stick with Nullify.

SHARPNESS
Novice Support Magic
TP Usage: 12
Level: 14
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Increase a party memberís offense for a time.
Sharpness is a useful support spell that temporarily boosts the attack strength 
of one party member by 10%, a useful bonus indeed. Make sure not to let her 
cast it on Genis, though.

*ACUTENESS*
Mid Technical Support Magic
TP Usage: 32
Level: 35
Requirements: Use Sharpness 50x
Activation: Sharpness
Description: Increase all party membersí offense for a time.
You probably already know what Acuteness does: it temporarily boosts the attack 
power of your whole party by 10%. Very useful indeed.

KEENNESS
Mid Strike Support Magic
TP Usage: 32
Level: 35
Requirements: Use Sharpness 50x
Activation: Sharpness
Description: Substantially increase a party memberís offense.
Keenness permanently boosts the attack of one party member by 15%, but 
Acuteness still better because of its bigger effect.

BARRIER
Novice Support Magic
TP Usage: 8
Level: 10
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Increase a party memberís defense for a time.
Barrier works exactly like Sharpness, but for defense. It isnít too useful.

*FIELD BARRIER*
Mid Technical Support Magic
TP Usage: 48
Level: 29
Requirements: Use Barrier 50x
Activation: Barrier
Description: Increase all party memberís defense for a time.
Obviously, Field Barrier raises the defense of your entire party, just as 
Acuteness raises their attack. It can be pretty useful in battles against 
physically powerful bosses.

PERMAGUARD
Mid Strike Support Magic
TP Usage: 40
Level: 29
Requirements: Use Barrier 50x
Activation: Barrier
Description: Substantially increase a party memberís defense.
Finally, Permaguard permanently raises the defense of a character by 15%. Once 
again, Field Barrier is probably better. 

CHARGE
Novice Healing Magic
TP Usage: 24
Level: 8
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Restore a portion of a party memberís TP.
This spell is basically First Aid for TP; it recovers 15 TP for the targeted 
character. Do the math: spending 24 TP to get 15 back is NOT a good deal. Its 
tiny TP regeneration is only remotely useful early in the game, and then Raine 
wonít be able to cast it much without running out. Disable this spell as soon 
as Raine learns it.

PHOTON
Mid Light Magic
TP Usage: 16
Level: 18
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Attack a target with converging blasts of light.
Photon is the first of Raineís very few, but powerful attack spells. Sheíll 
likely be your main source of valuable Light damage for much of the game. This 
spell encases the target in a spell of golden light, dealing a small amount of 
damage, then causes it to explode, dealing very heavy damage. If another enemy 
is close by (as in touching the target) theyíll get damaged as well. Itís a 
very powerful spell for its cost, especially against bosses.

*RAY*
Advanced Technical Light Magic
TP Usage: 35
Level: 46
Requirements: Use Photon at least 50 times
Activation: Photon
Description: Emit countless beams of light around a target.
Ray is probably Raineís most powerful Light spell; Yggdrasil will probably 
introduce it to you before Raine learns it. It creates a shining ball of blue-
white light above the target, which then showers the area below with a total of 
9 beams of light, each doing about as much damage as the second hit of Photon. 
Obviously itís a very powerful spell, hitting everything in a large area at 
least once and possibly twice, especially if theyíre large. It isnít the best 
against bosses because of its random nature, especially small ones like the 
Desian Grand Cardinals or just about any other human enemy.

HOLY LANCE
Advanced Strike Light Magic
TP Usage: 40
Level: 46
Requirements: Use Photon at least 50 times
Activation: Photon
Description: Pierce a target with a holy lance.
Raineís spells follow the same pattern as Genisí; while Ray deals less damage 
over a big area (though itís still plenty damaging) and Holy Lance deals 
incredibly heavy, concentrated damage. It creates a small, diamond-shaped 
pattern of rainbow light on the ground. 4 small beams of light pierce the 
target from 4 directions, then an especially powerful lance skewers them from 
directly above. It does exceptional damage, especially to enemies weak to 
light, and can hit adjacent enemies a few times.

FORCE FIELD
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Hits: N/A
Requirements: Visit the Triet Ruins with Kratos in your party
Description: Defend against most attacks and magic.
Like all the other ďGuardianĒ spells, Force Field uses 10% of Raineís maximum 
TP to shield her in a green barrier, preventing 80% of the damage of any 
attack. Itís best used to avoid damage from powerful spells you canít evade.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
9. Sheenaís Techniques -Setec-

Sheena has one of the most confusing movesets in the game. (at least for me) 
Her moves are mostly seals that can do damage and/or bestow status effects on 
friends or enemies. As you make pacts with them, Sheena gains the ability to 
call forth incredibly powerful Summon Spirits when in Over Limit. Her Summons, 
Sylva/Tethe Seals, and Purgatory Seal are spells; everything else is a special 
attack.

PYRE SEAL
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 15
Level: 1
Damage: 2.5
Requirements: None
Description: Seal attack blows away the enemy.
This attack is exemplary or Sheenaís special attacks; they are mostly Seals 
that use card magic to do damage and induce special effects. Youíll probably 
already be familiar with Pyre Seal from your battles with Sheena. It not only 
deals great damage to a single enemy with an explosion of cards; it also knocks 
them down like Beast does. Though itís useful for removing an enemy from the 
fight (especially with Force Seal), it also gives them near-invincibility and 
takes a slightly large amount of TP.

POWER SEAL
Level 1 Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 1
Damage: 0.8
Requirements: None
Description: A slight chance of decreasing defense for a time.
This Seal is the first in one of 3 nearly identical series of seals that do 
minimal damage, but lower the enemyís stats. Power Seal may temporarily lower 
the enemyís defense by 10% with some swirling blue lights, a useful effect, but 
not often necessary. Its low damage means it isnít very good for finishing up 
combos.

POWER SEAL PINION
Level 2 Technical Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 18
Level: 37
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 2/2.0 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Power Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Power Seal
Description: A chance of decreasing defense for a time.
This upgraded version of Power Seal is a regular Seal attack, followed by a 
thrown card that can deal damage from a distance. It deals much better damage, 
but isnít a good idea if you want to lower the enemyís defense.

*POWER SEAL ABSOLUTE*
Level 2 Strike Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 37
Damage: 1.2
Requirements: Use Power Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Power Seal
Description: Decrease defense for a time.
This Tech isnít much stronger than Power Seal, but will always lower the 
targetís defense if itís unblocked. If youíre focusing on the stat loss like 
me, this is the way to go.

SERPENT SEAL
Level 1 Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 34
Damage: 0.8
Requirements: None
Description: A slight chance of decreasing evasion for a time.
This Tech is exactly like Power Seal, expect that it may lower the targetís 
evasion in a swirling cloud of smoke. (how does that make any sense?)

*SERPENT SEAL PINION*
Level 2 Technical Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 52
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 2/2.0 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Serpent Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Serpent Seal
Description: A chance of decreasing evasion for a time.
This is the evasion-lowering version of Power Seal Pinion.

SERPENT SEAL ABSOLUTE
Level 2 Strike Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 24
Level: 52
Damage: 1.2
Requirements: Use Serpent Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Serpent Seal
Description: Decrease the targetís evasion for a time.
Do I really need to say what exactly this Tech does?

MIRAGE SEAL
Level 1 Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 26
Damage: 0.8
Requirements: None
Description: A slight chance of decreasing accuracy for a time.
The Mirage Seals have a chance of lowering the targetís accuracy-not to useful.

MIRAGE SEAL PINION
Level 2 Technical Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 44
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 2/2.0 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Mirage Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Mirage Seal
Description: A chance of decreasing accuracy for a time.
Blah.

*MIRAGE SEAL ABSOLUTE*
Level 2 Strike Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 20
Level: 44
Damage: 1.2
Requirements: Use Mirage Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Mirage Seal
Description: Decrease accuracy for a time.
I LIKE OREOS!!!11!!1!!

LIFE SEAL
Level 2 Healing Special Attack
TP Usage: 15
Level: 26
Damage: 1.4
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Steal HP from an enemy.
This vampiric Seal attack restores Sheenaís HP by draining 10% of the damage to 
the target into her health. You probably wonít need to use it much except in 
the dual with Kuchinawa.

SPIRIT SEAL
Level 2 Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 15
Level: 30
Damage: 1.4
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Steal TP from an enemy.
Spirit Seal drains TP instead of HP, 3% of the damage inflicted to be precise. 
This Technique isnít such a good idea until 3% of the damage done becomes more 
than 15. (that would be at least 500 damage)

PURGATORY SEAL
Healing Seal Skill
TP Usage: 40
Level: 48
Requirements: None
Activation: ??? (any help?)
Description: Resurrect a fallen party member without HP (only during battle).
This Seal Skill can be used to quickly resurrect a dead ally, but with 0 HP. 
This means that they die again as soon as theyíre hit. Itís best to avoid this 
spell and stick with Raineís Resurrection or Life Bottles.

FORCE SEAL
Level 3 Support Special Attack
TP Usage: 25
Level: 40
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Increase a targetís stagger duration for a time.
This rather strange Seal enshrouds Sheena and the enemy in a whirlwind of cards 
to increase the time it takes to recover from being knocked down, such as from 
Sheenaís Pyre Seal. (I think this is what it does, but it could also increase 
the time they flinch after attacks; does anyone know for sure?) Unlike most of 
her Seals, this one can be used from anywhere relative to the enemy, one of the 
few seals that can.

DEMON SEAL
Level 3 Light Special Attack
TP Usage: 35
Level: 60
Damage: 3.0
Requirements: Use Pyre Seal at least 50 times
Activation: Pyre Seal
Description: Seal blows away an enemy.
Demon Seal is an upgraded version of Pyre Seal, doing slightly more damage and 
knocking the target back with the force of evil spirits. I have no idea why 
itís a Light-element spell, though. It barely does any more damage than Pyre 
Seal for more than twice the TP; stick to it or Cyclone Seal.

CYCLONE SEAL
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 35
Level: 56
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.25, 2.6/3.85 total/2 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Seal and float a target except heavy for flying targets.
This expensive Seal creates a small cyclone around the enemy to lift it into 
the air, then deals heavy damage with an explosion of cards, sending it flying 
and knocking it down. The Seal does very good damage, and even better it can be 
used from anywhere! However, note that bigger enemies canít be lifted and wonít 
take full damage. 

GUARDIAN SEAL
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Requirements: None
Description: Defend against most attacks and magic.
This move works just like Guardian, only using a card.

SILVA/TETHE SEAL
Support Seal Skill
TP Usage: 14
Level: N/A
Requirements: Make pacts with corresponding Summon Spirits
Description: Adds Fire/Water/Wind/Light/Earth/Ice/Lightning/Darkness attribute 
to a party memberís physical attacks for a time.
These useful Seals take the place of Quartz by letting Sheena add the elemental 
power of any defeated Summon Spirit to an allyís attacks. This is a great way 
to defeat an enemy weak to a certain element, and is one of the ridiculously 
few ways to deal Darkness damage. (after you defeat Shadow)

SUMMON: CORRINE
Summon Spirit
TP Usage: 30
Level: 1
Hits: 1
Requirements: None
Description: Summons the spirit Corrine.
With this basic Summon, Sheena calls forth her friend, Corrine the artificial 
Summon Spirit, who appears from out of nowhere, drops onto the head of the 
target to deal heavy damage, then disappears. Though Sheena starts with it, the 
Summon takes only 30 TP, and it can be used out of Over Limit, itís much weaker 
than the other Summons.

SUMMON: FIRE
Summon Fire Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 1
Requirements: Make a pact with Efreet
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Efreet the Spirit of Fire.
Summon: Fire is the first listed of Sheenaís elemental Summons. Each one, 
obviously, calls a Summon Spirit into battle to unleash a mighty attack. 
However, the spells also take a massive amount of TP to cast, and can only be 
activated while in Over Limit. Once Sheena does enter Over Limit (getting hit 
and cooking contribute to this), have her start summoning something 
IMMEDIATELY. If you do, sheíll complete the Summon while in Over Limit, and 
thus make it uninterruptable. This happens because summoning takes less time 
than youíd think for insanely powerful spells. Sheena merely says an 
incantation; the Summon then takes place immediately. In this case, she summons 
the red giant, ruler of hellfire: Efreet. He slams the ground in front of him 
(and around the target enemy) with his fists, creating a full-power Explosion 
attack to rival one of Genisí. Genius boyís spell is still probably better 
though, because of its ease of use; itís best to stick with other Summons. 
Also, every Summon has a special status effect: Efreet raises your partyís 
attack.

SUMMON: WATER 
Summon Water Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 4
Requirements: Make a pact with Undine
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summon Undine, the Spirit of Water.
Summon: Water is the first Summon Spell Sheena learns. When used, it summons 
the maiden of the mist, Undine. She unleashes the power of water by randomly 
filling the battlefield with Spread spells, each one doing at least 1500 damage 
per hit with 4 hits! This is one of the strongest Summons, but its randomness 
makes it average, since it likely wonít hit every enemy. Undineís parting gift 
is to heal your party.

SUMMON: WIND 
Summon Wind Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: ??? (can anyone help me with this?)
Requirements: Make a pact with the Sylphs
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Sylph, the Spirit of Wind.
Predictably, this Spell summons the heavenly messengers, the fairylike Sylphs. 
All 3 of them team up for a powerful attack focused on one enemy and good for 
bosses. First, Sephie charges the enemy from below, sending them flying up into 
the air and dealing heavy Wind damage. Next, Yutis blasts the enemy with a 
barrage of arrows as it falls to the ground. Finally, Fairess rams into the 
enemy, bashing it with her shield to do at least 1500 damage. The Sylphs finish 
up by increasing your partyís speed. The attack, while powerful (as well as 
annoying), is also hard to use correctly; if the enemy is too heavy for Sephie, 
none of Yutisí arrows hit and the attack is weakened. Itís best for smaller 
enemies that will get hit by all 3 Sylphs.

SUMMON: ICE 
Summon Ice Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 2
Requirements: Make a pact with Celsius
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Celsius, the Spirit of Ice.
Summon: Ice calls the arrogant disciple of everlasting ice, Celsius, to the 
field. (not her companion Fenrir, though) She blasts the target with a 
shockwave of ice, damaging not only it but also sending lines of ice in 4 
directions. Each enemy thatís hit by the ice takes 2 hits of about 1300-2000 
ice damage, making this a powerful and easy to hit with attack. Celsius also 
raises your partyís accuracy before she disappears to help clean up after her 
attack.

SUMMON: LIGHTNING 
Summon Lightning Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 10
Requirements: Make a pact with Volt
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Volt, the Spirit of Lightning.
Keeping with the pattern, Summon: Lightning summons the silent hammer of godly 
thunder, Volt, into the world. He hovers above the target briefly and creates a 
purple magic circle around it, then fills the circle with lightning, utterly 
devastating anything inside it with massive amounts of electricity. Each one of 
the attackís 10 hits can do in excess of 500 damage, putting this spell at 
least on par with Indignation! Its special effect is to nullify your partyís 
status effects.

SUMMON: EARTH 
Summon Earth Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 6
Requirements: Make a pact with Gnome
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Gnome, the Spirit of Earth.
Summon: Earth calls the dimwitted servant of mother earth, Gnome. He crashes 
down onto the target much like Corrine, but with several thousand times as much 
weight and doing up to and including 2000 damage. The impact also creates a 
shockwave around it that hits everything in a fairly large area of effect for 5 
more hits of at least 300 damage each. Gnome finishes by fortifying your 
partyís defense.

SUMMON: LIGHT 
Summon Light Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 15
Requirements: Make a pact with Luna and Aska
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Luna, the Spirit of Light.
Summon: Light calls down the light of the heavens, Luna. (Aska is strangely 
absent) She uses a brighter, far more powerful version of Judgment also seen in 
Coletteís Holy Judgment. Each column of light can easily do at least 3000 
damage! In keeping with her spellcaster nature, Lunaís special effect is to 
raise your partyís magic attack, a boon to your spellcasters.

SUMMON: DARKNESS
Summon Darkness Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 10
Requirements: Make a pact with Shadow
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Shadow, the Spirit of Darkness.
This Summon calls forth the envoy from the dark abyss, Shadow. He appears and 
creates a black circle around the target. Everything inside the circle rapidly 
takes Darkness damage. (in fact, this is the only spell that innately does 
Darkness damage) Each hit does several hundred damage, so in all Shadow can do 
several thousand in a mid-sized area of effect. It also cures any status 
effects your party has, like with Volt. And no, Shadow is not saying ďgrumble.Ē

SUMMON: ORIGIN
Summon Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 14
Requirements: Make a pact with Origin
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Origin, the King of the Spirits.
In one of her most powerful and final summons, Sheena can call forth the source 
of heaven, earth, and everything in between, the ruler of all: Origin. The king 
of the Summon Spirits creates a huge triangle out of electricity, much like 
Thunder Arrow but larger. Everything inside the area is blasted with lightning 
and earthquakes, taking a whopping 14 hits of even-more-whopping at least 600 
damage each! That means an easy 8000 damage! He also boosts your partyís attack 
and defense! However, since Origin has a longer title than the other spirits, 
he takes noticeably longer to summon. Still, the result is definitely worth it.

SUMMON: BIRTH
Summon Spirit
TP Usage: 100
Level: N/A
Hits: 14
Requirements: Make a pact with Maxwell
Activation: Can only be used in Over Limit
Description: Summons Maxwell, the Spirit of Molecules.
This spell summons the ancient ruler of the elements, Maxwell. He then uses his 
signature attack: Meteor Storm. Itís even more powerful that Genisí version of 
it, with each meteor doing damage in the upper thousands. Too bad he doesnít 
just make the enemyís heads explode instead. Since heís a wizard, Maxwell 
predictably raises your partyís magic defense.

10. Kratos/Zelosí Techniques -Kztec-

What do you know? My favorite character (Kratos, not Zelos) also has, in my 
opinion, the coolest set of moves? And he even has the exact same techniques 
(except for one) as Zelos! Anyway, Kratos (and Zelos) have a cool combination 
of special attacks and spells borrowed from Lloyd and Genis, as well of a few 
of their own. Neither of them are the strongest, but when put together, they 
make Kratos (and Zelos) versatile and powerful characters.

DEMON FANG
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 4
Level: 1
Damage: 1.2
Requirements: None
Description: Attack with a powerful shockwave (attack is linkable).
Kratosí Demon Fang works exactly the same as Lloydís, in damage and cost. As 
usual, itís good for following up attack combos, though Sonic Thrust is even 
better.

DOUBLE DEMON FANG
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 15
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.05 x 2/2.1 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Demon Fang
Description: Two sword blasts.
Exact same move as Lloydís, exact same suckiness. Once again, stick with Fierce 
Demon Fang.

*FIERCE DEMON FANG*
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 15
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 4/2.4 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Demon Fang at least 50 times
Activation: Demon Fang
Description: Create a large shockwave.
As with Lloyd, Fierce Demon Fang is definitely the better move choice here. 
Unfortunately, no matter which one you choose, you canít get the level 3 Demon 
Fang Techniques.

SONIC THRUST
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 1
Damage: 1.4
Requirements: None
Description: Unleash a powerful thrust on the enemy and blow it away.
Sonic Thrust is, obviously, a powerful, close-ranged thrust attack. Itís 
arguably the best move to follow up an attack combo with. It also pushes any 
enemy hit by it backwards, and can even hit multiple enemies if theyíre lined 
up.

HURRICANE THRUST
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 28
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 1.2 Wind/2.2 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Sonic Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Sonic Thrust
Description: A powerful thrust the floats the enemy.
This is a less powerful Sonic Thrust followed up by a Wind-element shockwave 
that hits all nearby enemies. Still, the range is limited, so the more damaging 
Super Sonic Thrust is better.

*SUPER SONIC THRUST*
Level 2 Strike Wind Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 28
Damage: 2.4
Requirements: Use Sonic Thrust at least 50 times
Activation: Sonic Thrust
Description: A powerful thrust that blows the enemy away.
This is a bigger, more powerful version of Sonic Thrust, doing much more damage 
and blowing the target much farther back if it isnít destroyed immediately. It 
can also hit multiple enemies more easily.

LIGHT SPEAR
Level 2 Special Attack
TP Usage: 18
Level: 23
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 3, 0.7/2.2 total/4 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Float target with a sword swing and thrust.
Light Spear is an extremely cool Technique exclusive to Kratos and Zelos. He 
starts by spinning up into the air with sword outstretched, repeatedly hitting 
the enemy, then stabs them on the way down. Itís especially easy to hit large 
enemies with this, and the first few slashes can hit adjacent enemies anywhere 
around Kratos. Youíll probably want to use this stylish Technique a lot, which 
is good, because the stronger versions are even better.

VICTORY LIGHT SPEAR
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 26
Level: 43
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 3, 1.4/3.2 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Light Spear at least 50 times
Activation: Light Spear
Description: Float target with a sword swing and spin attack.
Victory Light Spear is basically a slightly more powerful Light Spear with a 
midair spin attack to send the enemy flying instead of a stab. It is powerful 
and pretty cool looking, but itís almost impossible to make the midair slash 
connect. Stick with Light Spear Cannon.

*LIGHT SPEAR CANNON*
Level 3 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 26
Level: 43
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 3, 0.6 x 3/3.3 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use Light Spear at least 50 times
Activation: Light Spear
Description: Upward cut from a spin attack and end with a thrust.
Light Spear Cannon is more powerful than Victory Light Spear, and itís much 
easier to make all 6 hits connect. It starts as a normal light spear, but 
without a midair attack. Kratos/Zelos quickly falls to the ground and stabs the 
still-falling enemy with a beam of light from his sword.

HELL PYRE
Level 2 Fire Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 40
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 1.0 (Fire), 0.5 x 2 (Fire)/3.0 total/4 hits
Requirements: Learn Eruption
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Attack with fiery battle energy.
This is one of Kratos/Zelosí elemental special attacks, some of his strongest. 
When using it, he first jumps into the air and slashes the enemy, then shoots a 
fireball down to hit them 3 more times. It quite powerful, but can be hard to 
hit with.

LIGHTNING BLADE
Level 2 Lightning Special Attack
TP Usage: 22
Level: 37
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.5, 1.8 (Lightning)/3.3 total/2 hits
Requirements: Learn Thunder Blade
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Thrust and shock the target with lightning.
Lightning Blade is a powerful, Lightning-element Technique that will probably 
become one of your mainstay moves until you learn its even stronger upgrade. 
Kratos/Zelos stabs his sword forward in a stronger Sonic Thrust, then a bolt of 
lightning hits, doing even more damage. Itís a very powerful Technique, and not 
at all hard to hit with both parts of the attack. Use it very often, especially 
on enemies weak to Lightning.

SUPER LIGHTNING BLADE
Level 3 Lightning Special Attack
TP Usage: 34
Level: 52
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.75, 2.0 (Lightning)/3.75 total/2 hits
Requirements: Learn Thunder Blade and Air Thrust
Activation: Lightning Blade
Description: Pierce the target with wind pressure and shock with lightning.
Super Lightning Blade is basically a stronger version of Lightning Blade; other 
than that, the moves are identical. It tales much more TP, but youíll likely 
have an Emerald Ring or something to equip Kratos/Zelos with by the time he 
learns it, allowing you to afford to use this powerful Technique often.

DEMON SPEAR
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 30
Level: 49
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5 x 2, 0.3 x 3, 1.1/3.0 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use all Demon Dang and Light Spear Techniques at least 50 times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Demon Fang and Light Spear.
Demon Spear is Kratos/Zelosí only combination attack, but it isnít all too 
good. He uses two weak Demon Fangs, then follows up with a weak Victory Light 
Spear. Super Lightning Blade is better, and is learned right after this. In 
fact, regular Lightning Blade is better, cheaper, and learned earlier, so 
thereís really no reason to use this Tech.

FIRE BALL
Novice Fire Magic
TP Usage: 7
Level: 1
Hits: 3 hits
Requirement: None
Description: Unleash 3 fireballs upon the target.
Fire Ball is the first of Kratos/Zelosí elemental spells. They work exactly 
like Genisí spells of the same name, only Kratos/Zelos is likely to do less 
damage due to his slightly lower Intelligence, and Genis can cast the stronger 
ones faster. Also, Kratos/Zelos canít learn any Advanced spells, unfortunately.

ERUPTION
Mid Fire Magic
TP Usage: 24
Level: 31
Hits: 3 hits
Requirement: Use Fire Ball at least 50 times
Activation: Fire Ball
Description: Lava surrounds the target.
Youíll probably notice that the Mid spells Kratos/Zelos learns arenít dependant 
on his S/T alignment. Also, he learns some of them earlier than Genis. Take 
that!

WIND BLADE
Novice Wind Magic
TP Usage: 8
Level: 5
Hits: 3 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: Any spell
Description: Create blades of wind around the target.

AIR THRUST
Mid Wind Magic
TP Usage: 22
Level: 18
Hits: 7
Requirements: Use Wind Blade at least 50 times
Activation: Wind Blade
Description: Blades of wind surround and slice the target.

STONE BLAST
Novice Earth Magic
TP Usage: 7
Level: 10

LIGHTNING
Novice Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 9
Level: 12

Activation: Any spell
Description: Create a small bolt of lightning to strike the target.

THUNDER BLADE
Mid Lightning Magic
TP Usage: 28
Level: 21
Hits: 4
Requirements: Use Lightning at least 50 times
Activation: Lightning
Description: Thrust a sword of thunder and create lightning.

FIRST AID
Novice Healing Magic
TP Usage: 8
Level: 1
Requirements: None
Description: Heal one party member.
Kratos/Zelosí First Aid works exactly like Raineís, healing 30% of the targetís 
HP. It will be your only unlimited source of healing very early in the game, 
and even after you have Raine itís quite useful to have a second healer.

HEALING WIND
Advanced Healing Magic
TP Usage: 35
Level: 26
Requirements: Learn Air Thrust
Activation: Air Thrust, then First Aid?
Description: Heal all party members within a given area.
Healing Wind is a powerful healing Technique that only Kratos/Zelos can learn. 
It creates a large, green circle of wins and heals everything inside it by 30% 
of its maximum HP. Itís quite useful in heated battles and has a larger area of 
effect than Healing Circle.

HEALING STREAM
Advanced Healing Magic
TP Usage: 45
Level: 46
Requirements: Learn Grave
Activation: ??? (does anyone remember?)
Description: Substantially heal all party members within a given area.
Healing Stream is a more powerful, blue version of Healing Wind. It heals 45% 
of every character within the circleís HP, and has the same area of effect as 
Healing Wind.

JUDGMENT
Angel Skill
TP Usage: 40
Level: N/A
Requirements: Talk to Kratos in Flanoir and have him rejoin at Dirkís House
Description: Attack all enemies with the light of judgment.
Only Kratos can learn this Angel Skill, not Zelos. His Judgment works exactly 
like Coletteís only itís likely to be less powerful due to his lower 
Intelligence stat. Itís just as inaccurate, and an added minus is that he takes 
FOREVER to cast it and is very likely to be interrupted! A minorly powerful 
attack isnít worth waiting about 15 seconds, even if it is Kratosí only Light 
spell.

GUARDIAN
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Requirements: None
Description: Block most magic and weapon based attacks.
As usual Guardian makes the user briefly take 20% damage from attacks. Both 
Kratos and Zelos start with it.

GRAVE BLADE
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: N/A
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6, 0.7 x 5/4.1 total/6 hits
Requirements: Use Fierce Demon Fang at least 200 times
Activation: Use Fierce Demon Fang with an Earth-element weapon equipped
Grave Blade is Kratosí only secret Technique. Itís automatically used instead 
of Fierce Demon Fang after youíve used the move at least 200 times and have an 
Earth-element weapon equipped. (or have given it the power of Earth using 
Sheenaís T Seal: Earth or used a Yellow Quartz on it) With that said, the move 
is quite powerful and worth the trouble, doing extremely heavy damage for a low 
TP cost.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
11. Preseaís Techniques -Prtec-

Presea is all about brute force. Her Techniques are all special attacks and 
focus entirely on doing damage at close range, right where she should be.

DESTRUCTION
Level 1 Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 6
Level: 1
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: ???/5 hits (as youíll notice, I still need help with 
quite a few of Preseaís Techniques)
Requirements: None
Description: Strike the earth and blast rocks toward the enemy.
This move is a jumping axe attack that send a shockwave of earth flying 
forward, damaging any enemies immediately in front of Presea.

*DEADLY DESTRUCTION*
Level 2 Technical Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 10
Level: 39
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: ???/6 hits
Requirements: Use Destruction at least 50 times
Activation: Destruction
Description: Strike the earth with a vertical motion and blast rocks.
This is an expanded Destruction, with more earth being shoveled up by the 
shockwave and followed by Presea adding even more earth by lifting her axe up.

INFINITE DESTRUCTION
Level 3 Technical Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 38
Level: 56
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: ???/11 hits
Requirements: Use Deadly Destruction at least 50 times
Description: Swing the axe multiple times and blast rocks.
In the strongest variation of the Technique, Presea shovels even more earth 
with another swing after the jump attack. This is her best Technique for 
combos, although itís extremely expensive.

FIERY DESTRUCTION
Level 2 Earth Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 39
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: ???
Requirements: Use Destruction at least 50 times
Activation: Destruction
Description: Strike the earth and blast rocks. Finish with an upward cut.
This special attack has Presea slamming her axe into the ground in front of her 
and sending some earth flying forward, then lifting the axe to add more damage. 
Deadly Destruction does far more damage.

PUNISHMENT
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 5
Level: 25
Damage: 1.75
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Attack with a powerful axe swing.
This is pretty much a spin attack with Preseaís axe. It does excellent damage 
for very little TP and hits all around her, making it a great move.

DUAL PUNISHMENT
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 36
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 1.5/2.5 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Punishment at least 50 times
Activation: Punishment
Description: Attack the enemy with two powerful axe swings.
This is a slightly less powerful double spin attack. Itís a great move, but is 
far overshadowed by Finality Punishment.

RISING PUNISHMENT
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 28
Level: 44
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.7, 1.5 x 3/5.2 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Dual Punishment at least 50 times
Activation: Dual Punishment
Description: 4 consecutive spin attacks against surrounding enemies.
Rising Punishment is an incredibly powerful quadruple spin attack; it is easy 
to hit with all for spins and can to over 5 times Preseaís normal damage in 
all, making it the strongest non-secret attack in the game! And it only costs 
28 TP! Feel free to abuse this move and Beast plenty; theyíre incredibly 
powerful!

*FINALITY PUNISHMENT*
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 36
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0 x 2, 1.5/3.5 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Punishment at least 50 times
Activation: Punishment
Description: Unleash multiple swings and push enemies away.
Finality Punishment is basically Dual Punishment followed by an uppercut that 
knocks the enemy down. Despite this, an extra hit and decrease in TP cost over 
Dual Punishment make this Technique vastly better. Use the Tech Glitch to get 
this and Rising Punishment.

INFLICTION
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 4
Level: 25
Damage: 1.5
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: The axe swing draws a moon in the air.
One of Preseaís coolest moves, Infliction is a rapid up-swing with Preseaís axe 
that draws a crescent moon shape in the air. Its low cost and decent damage 
make it good for following up combos, though it canít hit multiple enemies like 
Punishment.

*DUAL INFLICTION*
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 13
Level: 33
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.2, 1.55/2.75 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Infliction at least 50 times
Activation: Infliction
Description: The axe swings draw two moons in the air.
This is an Infliction followed a jump and a second Infliction, sending both the 
enemy and Presea flying into the air. Itís useful for disrupting enemies and 
giving your other party members time to attack.

ENDLESS INFLICTION
Level 3 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 28
Level: 40
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.7 x 2, 1.2, 0.7 x 2/4.0 total/5 hits
Requirements: Use Dual Infliction at least 50 times
Activation: Infliction
Description: The axe swings draw multiple moons in the air.
This extensive variation of Infliction starts with a Dual Infliction, then a 
weaker Finite Devastation and one final Infliction. It can keep an enemy 
flinching for a while, but isnít as damaging as Rising Punishment and canít hit 
multiple enemies.

RESOLUTE INFLICTION
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 15
Level: 33
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.2, 1.55/2.75 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Infliction at least 50 times
Activation: Infliction
Description: The axe swings draw two moons and blow the enemy away.
This move is identical to Dual Infliction except for its cost, only Presea 
stays on the ground for the second swing. Dual Infliction is only slightly 
better.

DEVASTATION
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 28
Damage: 2.0
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Slam the enemy from up high.
Devastation is a jumping flip followed by a powerful downward strike from 
Preseaís axe similar to Destruction. It canít hit multiple enemies (like most 
of her Techniques) but does great damage to one for only 8 TP.

FINITE DEVASTATION
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 11
Level: 42
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 2.0, 1.0/3.0 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Devastation at least 50 times
Activation: Devastation
Description: Float the enemy by the impact of slamming from up high.
This powerful jump attack adds an uppercut strike to a regular Devastation 
attack for only a little more TP. The uppercut can send the target flying and 
knock it down. Itís best to stick with the more powerful Mass Devastation.

*MASS DEVASTATION*
Level 2 Strike Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 42
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 2.0, 0.4 x 4 Earth/3.6 total/5 hits
Requirements: Use Devastation at least 50 times
Activation: Devastation
Description: Send a shockwave by slamming the axe from up high.
This attack adds the earth element to Devastation in the form of a shockwave 
that appears around Presea after she lands and hits every enemy close to her 
with Earth damage.

ETERNAL DEVASTATION
Level 3 Strike Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 26
Level: 54
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 0.6 x 5 Earth/4.0 total
Requirements: Use Mass Devastation at least 50 times
Activation: Mass Devastation
Description: Unleash a spiral cut in the air and create a shockwave.
This move is much like Mass Devastation, but Presea slams the ground with so 
much force that the shockwave expands outward to become huge, hitting enemies 
in a very large area. The closer they are to her, the more theyíre hit.

FIERY INFLICTION
Level 3 Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 18
Level: 48
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.5, 0.4 x 4 Earth, 0.5, 0.6, 1.0/4.2 total/8 hits
Requirements: Use all known Destruction and Infliction Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Destruction and Infliction.
This combination Tech is a powerful Fiery Destruction followed by a Dual 
Infliction. It does great damage for relatively little TP and looks pretty 
awesome.

ETERNAL DAMNATION
Level 3 Earth Special Attack
TP Usage: 20
Level: 51
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: ???/11 hits?
Requirements: Use all known Destruction and Devastation Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Combination of Destruction and Devastation.
This extremely powerful Technique is two powerful Mass Devastation attacks with 
an aerial somersault in between. The attack hits an incredible number of times 
and has a great area of effect, making it one of Preseaís best.

BEAST
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 1
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 4.0/5.0 total/2 hits
Requirements: None
Description: Blow the enemy away by tearing the sky with a mighty swing.
What in Derris-Kharlan were the programmers thinking!? Preseaís Beast is 
nothing like Lloydís. Its first hit is decent, but the second, knockdown hit is 
INSANE! It does a whopping 4 times Preseaís normal damage; it can easily exceed 
1000 damage even when she first joins you! This kind of damage would always be 
good, but it also only costs 14 TP! Unfortunately, there is a slight delay 
between hits, it knocks enemies down, and it has no upgrades. Still, Beast is 
incredibly powerful; use it a lot!

EARTHLY PROTECTION
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Requirements: None
Description: Defend against most attacks and magic.
As usual, Preseaís Guardian-type Technique briefly reduces the damage she takes 
by 80%.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
12. Regalís Techniques -Retec-

Regal is one of the hardest characters to use because of his bewildering array 
of special attacks. Still, he can be just as powerful as any other character, 
with specialized moves like anti-air or midair attacks. Quite literally, his 
Techniques kick butt. He also has a useful healing spell.

Level T----------------<>----------------S   Requirements

1                Crescent Moon               None

57            Crescent Dark Moon             None

60                 Wolverine                 Use Triple Kick 50x

N/A                 Bastion                  None

CRESCENT MOON
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 1
Damage: 1.6
Requirements: None
Description: A spinning kick that can be linked to a midair attack.
This flip kick is Regalís version of Preseaís Infliction. Itís great for 
following up combos with and can be linked to an midair attack.

SPIN KICK
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 6
Level: 1
Damage: 1.3
Requirements: None
Description: A roundhouse kick that is linkable to an anti-air attack.
This special attack is exactly when it sounds like: a spinning kick. I prefer 
the lightning-fast Crescent Moon for following normal attacks up with, though.

TRIPLE KICK
Level 2 Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 38
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.8 x 3/2.4 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Spin Kick at least 50 times
Activation: Spin Kick
Description: 3 consecutive roundhouse kicks.
Once again, this Techís name is self-explanatory; itís 3 back-to-back Spin 
Kicks for decent damage.

WOLVERINE
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 28
Level: 60
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 4, 1.1/3.6 total/5 hits
Requirements: Use Triple Kick at least 50 times
Activation: Triple Kick
Description: Triple Kick followed by a low kick, ending with an upward kick.
The strongest version of Spin Kick begins with a Triple Kick, then a sweeping 
kick along the ground followed by a flip kick that sends the enemy flying into 
the air. Very painful indeed.

SWALLOW KICK
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 31
Damage: 1.5
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: A powerful upward attack.
This move is a powerful jumping kick forward. Itís ineffective against small 
enemies, but great for big or flying ones.

SWALLOW DANCE
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 40
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6?, 0.7?, 0.6?/1.9 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Swallow Kick at least 50 times
Activation: Swallow Kick
Description: Multiple upward roundhouse kicks.
This move is a 3-kick combo in the air. It and Dragon Dance are probably 
identical in damage and TP cost, but this one doesnít send either Regal or the 
enemy flying, so prefer Dragon Dance. >=)

*DRAGON DANCE*
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 40
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6?, 0.7?, 0.6???/1.9 total/3 hits
Requirements: Use Swallow Kick at least 50 times
Activation: Swallow Kick
Description: Swallow Kick followed by a midair kick and an upward kick.
With this potent anti-air attack, Regal jumps forward with a two kick combo, 
then flips backwards and sends the enemy flying with a final kick. I think that 
this and Swallow Dance may do the same damage, but I prefer this one for the 
cool final strike.

EAGLE DIVE
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 8
Level: 1
Damage: 1.5
Requirements: None
Description: A rapid descent that is linkable to ground or anti-air attacks.
Regal has the incredible ability to change direction midair and dive onto 
anything below him with deadly force. You need good timing to make it work 
right.

*EAGLE RAGE*
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 18
Level: 43
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.65 x 4/2.6 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use Eagle Dive at least 50 times
Activation: Eagle Dive
Description: A rapid descent with force in the legs.
This Tech is an Eagle Dive surrounded by rings of force (or something) that hit 
the enemy multiple times a Regal dives into it. 

EAGLE FALL
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 18
Level: 43
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.6, 0.8/2.4 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Eagle Dive at least 50 times
Activation: Eagle Dive
Description: Shockwave created by a rapid descent with force in the legs.
Eagle Fall adds force to the regular Eagle Dive, creating a small shockwave 
when he hits the ground. He immediately follows it up with a short-ranged kick 
that hits directly in front of him; try to use Eagle Fall before jumping all 
the way over an enemy.

RISING DRAGON
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10
Level: 34
Damage: 1.5
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack
Description: Unleash a direct upward kick.
This is a jumping spin kick that scoops up the enemy and sends it flying into 
the air, useful for disrupting then or setting them up for a combo.

*DRAGON FURY*
Level 2 Technical Special Attack
TP Usage: 18
Level: 46
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 1.4/2.4 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Rising Dragon at least 50 times
Activation: Rising Dragon
Description: Kick the enemy up vertically with a mid-air kick.
This is a rising Dragon, followed by a flip kick to catch the enemy in the air. 
Itís slightly weaker than Dragon Rage, but only takes 3/4 of the TP.

DRAGON RAGE
Level 2 Strike Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 46
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.0, 1.6/2.6 total/2 hits
Requirements: Use Rising Dragon at least 50 times
Activation: Rising Dragon
Description: A low kick and finish with a direct upward kick.
With this variation, Regal adds a sweeping ground kick before performing the 
Rising Dragon. Itís a little stronger than Dragon Fury, but the higher TP cost 
leads me to prefer the former. 

HEAVENíS CHARGE
Level 2 Special Attack
TP Usage: 14
Level: 49
Damage: 2.0
Requirements: None
Activation: Normal attack?
Description: Sneak up on the enemy and blow the enemy away.
This sneaky variation of Mirage makes Regal charge through an enemy, then elbow 
them hard from behind, sending them flying and knocking them down. It does 
great damage, but the knockdown isnít always very good.

HEALER
Novice Healing Magic
TP Usage: 15
Level: 1
Requirements: None
Description: Heal a party member (proportional to the distance).
Contrary to what youíd expect from a tough melee fighter, Regal actually has a 
healing move. (albeit a useless one) Healer restores 25% for the targetís 
maximum HP, but this rapidly decreases based on Regalís distance from the 
target. This means itís really only useful for healing himself. First Aid is 
better in every way than this Tech, so let Raine or Kratos/Zelos do the 
healing.

*CHI HEALER*
Mid Technical Healing Magic
TP Usage: 30
Level: 52
Requirements: Use Healer at least 50 times
Activation: Healer
Description: Heal a party member.
Chi Healer is actually remotely useful; it restores 35% or the targetís HP 
regardless of position. Unfortunately, it still costs almost 4 times as much as 
the comparable First Aid.

GRAND HEALER
Mid Strike Healing Magic
TP Usage: 30
Level: 52
Requirements: Use Healer at least 50 times
Activation: Healer
Description: Substantially heal a party member (proportional to the distance).
Grand Healer is simply a more powerful version of Healer. It can heal 45% of an 
allyís HP, but is still restricted by distance, making it all but useless.

CRESCENT DARK MOON
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 30
Level: 57
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 0.6 x 4, 1.6/4.0 total/4 hits
Requirements: None
Activation: None?
Description: Multiple roundhouse kicks that link to Crescent Moon.
This combo tech is simply a Triple Kick followed by a Crescent Moon. Itís 
listed as an Anti-Air attack, but it does best against ground enemies.

TRIPLE RAGE KICK
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 26
Level: 55
Damage/Total Damage/Hits: 1.1, 0.7 x 3?/3.2 total/4 hits
Requirements: Use all known Eagle Dive and Spin Kick Techniques at least 50 
times
Activation: Midair attack
Description: A jump kick that links to Triple Kick.
This move is a midair version of Spin Kick, consisting of 4 rapid roundhouse 
kicks. It can only be started in the air, but will continue after Regal lands. 
It isnít too damaging and is very hard to aim with; youíre better off sticking 
with his other Techniques.

MIRAGE
Level 1 Special Attack
TP Usage: 12
Level: 1
Requirements: None
Description: Sneak up on the enemy from behind.
Regal somehow manages to sneak right through any enemy in front of him with 
this move, setting him up for an attack from behind. Itís best to save your TP 
and simply jump over the enemy unless itís huge. 

BASTION
Level 3 Special Attack
TP Usage: 10% of maximum TP
Level: N/A
Requirements: None
Description: Defend against most attacks and magic.
This is Regalís defensive Technique; it works exactly like any other.

SUPER SWALLOW DANCE
Secret Special Attack
TP Usage: 16
Level: 40
Requirements: Use Swallow Dance over 200 times, then again with a Wind weapon 
equipped.
-------------------------------------------------------------------------------
13. The Tech Glitch (Ttegl)

You may have already heard of this glitch elsewhere. If so, youíre probably 
dying to learn what it does, unless you already know. Basically, it lets you 
learn techniques in combinations that would normally be impossible, like Lloyd 
knowing, Fierce Demon Fang/Double Demon Fang, Demon Chaos, and Demonic Circle 
at the same time, or Raine knowing Heal/Nurse, Healing Circle/Cure, Revitalize, 
and Revive. Before going any further, let me say that I DID NOT INVENT ANY OF 
THIS. I donít know who did and probably canít find out, but Iím just using what 
I learned from someone else. Now, as an example of how to pull this miraculous 
glitch off, Iíll use teaching Genis Spark Wave and Indignation as an example.

1. First, have Genis on the T-side, right near the center of the meter. Make 
sure he knows Thunder Blade and has used it at least 50 times.
2. Put any character other than Genis in the first slot of your active party. 
Set Thunder Blade to C-Up or C-Down, then switch the character out of your 
active party. Generally speaking, whenever performing the glitch, you should do 
this with the Technique you wonít end up knowing.
3. Switch Genis over to be S-Type, forget Thunder Blade, and learn Spark Wave.
4. Switch Genis back to the T-Type. Once heís there, save.
5. Switch the character you set Genisí Thunder Blade to into the first slot of 
your active party again. DO NOT SAVE OR LOOK AT THE CHARACTERíS TECHNIQUE LIST 
AFTER DOING THIS!
6. Enter a battle, preferably a hard one. It helps to set everyone to do 
nothing to keep the computer from ending the battle early.
7. Use the C-stick to make Genis spam Thunder Blade, which he can miraculously 
still use, until he re-learns Indignation. Watch the total 00berness. If Genis 
doesnít learn Indignation in this battle, it will disappear from your C-stick 
command and not be usable. If this happens, repeat from step 5 until he learns 
it.
8. After the battle, ta-da!, Genis will know Spark Wave and Indignation! If you 
do this for many elements, he can even learn the focused S-type spells as well 
as the level 3 T-type spells.

Cool, huh? Feel free to use this for every character to get awesome 
combinations of techniques! Note: Techs obtained with this glitch WILL transfer 
over if you beat the game and inherit Techniques, so donít worry.
