Pyra using Flame Nova.
|Article on Xeno Series Wiki||Flame Nova (XC2)|
The attack consists of Pyra twirling her blade around her, similar to the Spin Attack from The Legend of Zelda and Kirby franchises, hitting multiple times, ending in a final explosion. The button can be held to charge up the move, which increases both the power and number of the blade's hits. Two circular flames appear around her if the move is charged. Much like Eruption, the player cannot cancel the charge, and must commit to using the full charge. The player can also slightly move left or right on the ground while the move is activated.

Flame Nova is Pyra's Level 1 Special in Xenoblade Chronicles 2. In the original game, the move was more emphasized on the final blast, rather than the spinning of the sword.
