In the GameCube version of the game, Lloyd, Genis and Colette possessed incredibly powerful secret techniques (nowadays called Mystic Artes) performed under specific circumstances.

Lloyd: Falcon's Crest
Genis: Indignation Judgment
Colette: Holy Judgment

The PlayStation 2 version of the game added Mystic Artes for the other playable characters as well as the bonus boss Abyssion (Who can use all the playable characters' Mystic Artes) and final boss Mithos. Some characters have 2 Mystic Artes as well. The PlayStation 2 version also added various miscellaneous artes for most of the cast. The PlayStation 3 Chronicles rerelease of the game is based off of the PlayStation 2 version and retains the new moves.

Raine: Sacred Light (formerly unused in the GC version), Fairy Circle
Kratos, Zelos, Mithos, Abyssion: Shining Bind
Zelos' 2nd MA: Divine Judgment
Presea: Infernal Ruin, Crimson Devastation
Regal: Fanged Finality.

Sheena does not get any new Mystic Artes but her Summons now have a Mystic Arte character cutin image appear when performed.

Zelos as a playable character could now also learn and use his Judgment tech at any time once unlocked, Kratos gained a new healing/attack move called Guardian Field and Yggdrasil gained a move named "Yggdrasil Laser", a homage to Dhaos' infamous "Dhaos Laser" from Tales of Phantasia.

An unused tech for Raine, called "Sacred Light" can be found in the coding of the GameCube version of the game. The technique is almost fully complete, possessing a translated incantation ("Life, be thy sustenance and destroy the enemy!") and animation, though it does not damage the enemy.

For the PlayStation 2 version, Sacred Light was fully completed and implemented as Raine's first Mystic Arte, performed by using her Ray or Holy Lance spells 100 times then using anyone of them in Over Limit.

The English release of the PlayStation 3 version uses the formerly unused English incantation.
