Nibelung Valesti (ニーベルン・ヴァレスティ, Niberun Varesuti) is the name of a Purify Weird Soul attack and Soul Crush used by Lenneth, Hrist, Silmeria, Alicia and Valkyrie in Valkyrie Profile, Valkyrie Profile 2: Silmeria and Valkyrie Profile: Covenant of the Plume. In the first two games, it has three different versions, which are used under different circumstances. In the third game, only one version is used.

Valkyrie ProfileEdit

Since Lenneth can equip swords or bows, she has access to a grand total of six different versions of Nibelung Valesti: three with the sword and three with the bow. The version used depends on her equipped weapon. Her battle quote is identical for all versions: "It shall be engraved upon your soul! Divine assault: Nibelung Valesti!"

This iteration of Nibelung Valesti is best used as the second Soul Crush in a chain, as it does not add enough energy to be used third, but will help maximize the damage of subsequent Soul Crushes.

EtymologyEdit

Nibelung is probably a reference to Der Ring der Nibelungen [1], which tells the story of Brynhild and Sigurd, on which Lenneth's and Lucian's story is loosely based. In and of itself, it does not mean anything, probably being used for the reference it evokes. Valesti could be derived from the Latin verb valere, which means "to be strong" [2]. The combination is therefore both a reference to Norse mythology and to the strength of the attack.
