|Name||Obtained At Level||MP Required||Range||Description|
|Rift Wave||2||3||Short||Rift Wave is an excellent move that hits in a wide arc it's a very good help when your facing more than one enemy at once.|
|Blaze Sword||7||6||Short||Roddick sets his sword on fire and does a twin slash, Speaking of twin slash, if you get it hurry up and replace this with it.|
|Flash Whirl||10||5||Long||Roddick holds up his sword and bullets of light scatter around at random directions, Risky and leaves him vunerable but good if it hits especially if the enemy gets itself close to Ratix since multiple bullets will hit for major damage, But the risk isn't really worth it.|
|Shock Sword||12||5||Short||A slightly...bad technique that's easy to get hit out of but the damage is decent for a while, Your choice.|
|Air Slash||16||9||Long||Ohohoho, A good move Roddick can fire this off rapidly at a far distance for good damage.|
|Twin Slash||20||11||Short||Blaze sword without the blaze and with extra power.|
|Spirit Blast||25||8||Both||Decent, Roddick runs infront of enemies and facepalms them with this shockwave, stronger than Air slash but not better.|
|Dragon Howl||29||13||Short||Roddick jumps a bit back and turns into a dragon and releases a shock wave which misses a lot. Not worth it.|
