Dante's Ebony & Ivory.

A Hero Art (ヒーローアーツ Hīrō Ātsu?) is a special move unique to a Hero.


Each Hero has a total of three Hero Arts which are unlocked at Level 1, 3 and 10. Players can only select one Hero Art when creating a Deck, and they can only be used when enough AP is available (AP is gained via the usage of cards).

Once a Hero Art has been started, it cannot be interrupted. The attack gauge of Unit Cards of both players are also paused and no cards can be used during the animation. After performing a Hero Art, players must wait 15 seconds before performing it again. There are some rare exceptions that can nullify this cooldown, as is the case with Rathalos-Kin Mary (DOW 014).

In terms of Hero Skins, the animation of the Hero Art will be changed to reflect the equipped skin. As of the expansion titled The Force Seekers, Hero Skins can completely change the animation and the name of the art, however, no skin will change the effects or AP cost of a Hero Art.
