The Illusion Turn (イリュージョンターン, Iryūjontān), is a unique High End Skill originally believed to have been developed by Chiffon Fairchild, before she enrolled in West Genetics. It is a special technique that allows the user to "vanish." An after-image often forms in the user's previous location. Chiffon is first seen employing it during the Summer Carnival of 2063, where she atrociously decimates fifty Pandora in a row before finally "succumbing" to Ticy Phenyl.
During the 11th Nova Clash, it is speculated that this technique was never meant to be used by Pandoras, but was developed so Chiffon could fight effectively when she assumed her true form, which she did when she fought the Nova-fied Amelia. Gengo Aoi later reveals that Maria Lancelot was also able to use Illusion Turn, implying that Chiffon was not the creator of the technique.
Chiffons variantEditIn the series, Chiffon employed the first, and so far, strongest variant of the Illusion Turn. When using it, Chiffon sometimes leaves an after-image and a releases a powerful shockwave. In addition, she can make tangible Tempest Turn-like copies of herself.
Ticy's variantEditAfter Chiffon's death, Ticy utilized her own version of Illusion Turn for the first time to defeat Arnett in their duel for the president's office vacated by Chiffon. Ticy tends to use her technique in evasive manoeuvres to move around the battlefield. She ultimately gets behind her opponent and strikes. Unlike Chiffon's, Ticy's variant does not leave an after-image.
Su-Na's variantEditAt the onset of the 13th Nova Clash, Su-Na receives a Legendary Stigmata System in order to combat her rival, Sawatari Isuzu. This system enables Su-Na to utilize Illusion Turn. Su-Na's version includes an after-image, and Gengo Aoi compares her technique to the likes of Chiffon's and Maria's. However, Su-Na is not yet accustomed to using Illusion Turn, though she was still able to prevail over Sawatari using it.
Notable Illusion UsersEdit
