- Vanquish Blades: At the beginning of this single middle Break Attack she crouches slightly and rushes forward, slashing the enemy horizontally with both of her blades in blue flames and colored lightning bolts. The enemy is thrown at quite a distance after the attack.
Note: Many of Taki's abilities come from the various weapons she can equip. As such, in battle the creator should specify what weapon(s) she is allowed to have.
