Disgaea Dimension 2’s Tera Spell Guest Illustrators Revealed

By Spencer . February 22, 2013 . 2:52am


Spell effects in Disgaea games become grand attacks if you can level your way up to "Tera" tier magic. The Star spell above is the first level of magic in Disgaea Dimension 2. Characters can also learn status effect magic like Speed Down and Heal, which restores HP.

Guest illustrators contributed to Disgaea Dimension 2 and created characters that show up when you cast a Tera spell.



Ar tonelico artist nagi created this fairy-like character for Tera Cool. She encases enemies ice before doing a powerful slashing attack that cuts through them.



Goro Suzuki, a fantasy artist made a blazing crimson bird that engulfs the enemies with flames when you cast Tera Fire.



Soji Hisakata, character designer on Gleipnora from Square Enix and Lunvia Saga from GameOn, made Tera Wind’s spell effect. This magic spell summons a gigantic beast swordsman equipped with huge swords that cuts through enemies using wind.



Saku, who was a character designer on Black Robina and is currently card artist for Zillions of Enemy X, designed Tera Heal’s smiling angel. The angel who lives on a sunny beach instantly heals wounded characters.




Cast Tera Star and a huge battleship will bombard enemies, destroying everything in its path. Shishizaru, a character designer on Necromancer Nightmare Reborn from Hudson and Crimson Sea from Koei, came up with this idea.


Disgaea Dimension 2 comes out in North America and Europe this fall for PlayStation 3.

    You know i almost never see these spells cuz i always turn off the animations rofl

    • echokanon

      And hence there would be a trophy for watching all skills animations :p

      • Go2hell66

        and i never really cared for trophies either rofl

        • Evan Groman

          I don’t understand why your lack of interest in things seems so hilarious to you.

          • Go2hell66

            what did all the “rofl”s give me away?

      • Is D3 for Vita in my experience if the animation is new it shows it anyways, I dun know if there is a trophy for it or not, but that is how it is.

  • Yuriangels

    Hey you guys do you remember what the Characters in the first tera spells were? I can’t remember,

    • Tenno Seremel

      All I have is this one.

    • Testsubject909

      I’d have to pop back in my PS2 copy of Disgaea or my DS copy of Disgaea to double check, maybe later though. Going to a friend’s place for gaming night.

  • Locklear93

    I’d say the critter in Tera Fire is more a harpy than a “bird.” Birds don’t ordinarily have boobs the size of their heads. <_<

    • Ixbran

      This is a game from japan. In japan, all girls have to have unrealistically giant titties, regardless of age, so as to increase sales to horny men of all ages.

      Just look at Ayane in NGS2, where as according to the time line of the NG and DoA games, is around the age of 14 yet knockers the size of her head.

      Its disgusting, but sadly it happens more often than you think.

      • Locklear93

        My point was that the article called it a bird. Even in Japanese stuff, birds are typically flat chested. :P

      • M’iau M’iaut

        Let’s leave generalizations that do nothing that flame elsewhere. Especially when the opposite is just as common in our video game niche.

  • endril

    Other than fire, these are all returning from Disgaea 1’s tera spells.

    • Wappuli

      Only star.
      Ice, wind and heal were omega-level in Disgaea 1.

  • Suriel Cruz


    They should create a NEW tier of Magic… Dark or something.

    • Well…. based on the trend for magic tiers being based on Measurement prefixes, the next level after Tera would be…. O-O….. -_-… Peta….

      • Suriel Cruz

        Agree! New Magic ELEMENT would be Dark.

      • echokanon

        I heard there is a Peta Star in PSP version of D2

  • Xerain

    Well at least Disgaea D2’s Tera Star is better than D4’s…. but that’s not saying much.
