Description

Riot Blade icon (legacy).

At the initial release, Riot Blade was an ability learned by Gladiators at rank 30. It delivered a ranged attack with a chance to decrease defense when executed from behind the target. A second variant could be learned by Gladiators at rank 50 that unleashed a shockwave, increasing enemy enmity and dealing ranged slashing damage. The ability had the side effect of momentarily leaving the user under the Pacification status.

Menu description of Terra's EX Burst

Riot Blade appears as Terra's EX Burst. She attacks the opponent with Blizzara, then charges energy into her arms. The player must rapidly tap Left and Circle to fill two power gauges within an unspecified time limit. Terra releases the concentrated power by spinning and firing four blades at the opponent. Failing to fill the gauges results in Terra firing fewer blades with a less dramatic execution.
