Ars Arcanum KHI

Sora using Ars Arcanum

Ars Arcanum (ラストアルカナム Rasuto Arukanamu?, lit. "Last Arcanum") is an ability that appears in Kingdom Hearts, Kingdom Hearts Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts Re:Chain of Memories, Kingdom Hearts II Final Mix, Kingdom Hearts 358/2 Days, Kingdom Hearts and is a Deck Command in Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep and Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep Final Mix. It allows the user to attack enemies with a massive combo attack.

Mechanics

In Kingdom Hearts, Ars Arcanum is a special ability that costs 4 AP to equip and 3 MP to use. This version of the combo extends for up to thirteen slashes. When used, Sora executes a powerful flurry of blows. After the initial flurry, the "Bash" command will appear. Selecting it will make Sora execute a follow-up slash. After a number of successful Bash attacks, the "Finish" command will appear. This command will trigger a back-flip slash followed by a wide horizontal front flip slash.

In Kingdom Hearts: Chain of Memories, it is an Attack Sleight.

In Kingdom Hearts Birth by Sleep, it is an Ultimate Attack Command exclusive to Ventus that takes up two slots, has a maximum level of 6, has a normal reload time of 25 seconds, and fills the Command Gauge by 6%. This version of the combo involves more acrobatics and slashes than the others.

In Kingdom Hearts III, Sora unleashes a fast combo of swift Keyblade strikes. "Attack" can be inputted to generate a second combo, with each press unleashing two hits. Sora finishes the second combo by rapidly spinning upwards before delivering a downwards slam, creating a small shockwave. It is the final finisher available to Second Form in the demo, and it is currently unknown if there are any additional Finish Situation Commands after it.
