Terra-Xehanort inherits this technique from Terra, and uses it during his boss battle, though the speed of the three hit finisher is greatly increased through the power of darkness.

Etymology[edit]

"Ars Solum" is a pun on the ability's original name "Solo Arcanum" (roughly, "Only Secret" in Latin), and Last Arcanum's dub name of "Ars Arcanum" (roughly, "Secret Technique"). As such, it is meant to mean "First Technique". "Solum" can also be read as "ground" or "earth" in Latin, playing on Terra's own name; as such, "Ars Solum" can be read as "Earth Technique".
