A Song heard at the conclusion of Phase 1 of Ar tonelico Qoga: Knell of Ar Ciel.

Spoiler warning: Plot and/or ending details follow. (Skip section)

This Song serves to activate the DFP, and was developed by Katene especially for this purpose. Given its function, it releases a highly concentrated pulse of Dynamic D-Waves that will disrupt anything that uses Symphonic Power: Reyvateils, airships, electronic equipment; among others. In short, it works similarly to an electromagnetic pulse that gets released once the Song has been sung for the necessary time for the DFP to charge the energy it will release. As it can be easily guessed, this will temporarily sever the connection between the SH Server and the Reyvateils, making them fall unconscious for a little time, unless they have been applied a silencer or are protected by something else. Similarly, all unprotected electronic equipment will completely fail and any airships in its activation range will fall down from the sky.

The name is a contraction of Enhanced Power Nova,[1] and it's sung during the third battle against Mute, which takes place inside the Moebius Factory. Saki volunteered herself to sing it after Katene suggested using the DFP to liberate the city of Ciela Gate from the Clustanian occupation, so it was quite a shock to everyone when Saki started singing and the Song ended having its current form. In the end, the attempt was successful and the Clustanian fleet stationed in Ciela Gate was mostly decimated or sent on the run due to the DDW pulse's effects, which allowed Aoto and his party a chance to go to the Tower and reach the city of Archia.

As a fun fact, the Song itself would have been a battle Song reminiscent of the Purgers or Replekia if it had been Downloaded into Finnel, any of the heroines from the previous two games or any of Saki's alternate personae, but given Saki's personality, it was greatly altered.[2] And even if another persona tried to sing it now, since Saki was the first among them to Download the Song, the result would still be this same version due to the Tower considering only Saki's feelings for the Song because her and the other personae are lodged in the same area within the SH Server: within Sakia's Soulspace.[3][4]

Feelings Contained in This Song[]

There were two powerful countries in that world - the kingdom of Vinnel, and the kingdom of Ruou.
The two countries ruled over their neighbors, and waged wars to dominate the world.
Both race and culture are different in the two countries, but there was one thing they had in common:

Both countries worshipped the god Shanoa, and both of their people were said to be descendants of the sun.
And that only worsened the conflict between them.
Who were the true descendants of the sun? The people of Vinnel, or the people of Ruou?
They tried to back up their claims with different reasonings,
And find flaws in the opponent's arguments at the same time.
The small-scaled competitions that arose became usual occurrence.

Shanoa looked upon this situation every day and was deeply troubled by it.
To Shanoa, the residents of both countries were great worshipers, and both were the true descendants of the sun.
Shanoa could not stand by and watch the situation unfold anymore
And came to earth in a human's body.
Shanoa wanted to persuade both sides to stop them from fighting.

Shanoa first headed to Vinnel.
Visiting the castle as a traveling priest, Shanoa told of the god's sadness caused by this war.
Then the king of Vinnel displayed his hair for all to see, and said.

"Look at this hair. We, who possess shining platinum hair are the true descendants of the sun.
The people of Ruou have black hair. They're the servants of the lord of darkness.
They're trying to conquer us and spread the power of darkness."

Shanoa gave up on the stubborn king, and headed to Ruou.
Visiting the castle as a traveling priest, Shanoa told of the god's sadness caused by this war.
Then the emperor of Ruou displayed his skin for all to see, and said.

"Look at this skin. This auburn skin is proof that we have bathed under Lord Shanoa's holy light.
As the descendants of the sun, we are always with it.
The people of Vinnel have pale skin, they're the family of those in the underworld. Our duty is to destroy them with our sunlight."

Shanoa was out of ideas after witnessing the emperor's obstinacy.
Leaving the castle, Shanoa headed towards the Gurglenoa volcano at the country's border to think of a new idea.
However, Shanoa was surrounded by the people from both Vinnel and Ruou on the way. They pointed their spears at Shanoa,
And said.

"We heard that you spread fallacy in god's name in both countries to mislead us into the path of evil.
You damned child of the devil, trying to sway our belief!
Be purged right here!"

Shanoa was immensely saddened, and cursed himself.
Why did it come to this. Was his guidance bad?
He forgave everything until now. And it all comes down to this?

Shanoa decided. He needed punishment to guide his children onto the right path.
He used the power of the light and destroyed both countries.
Both Vinnel and Ruou disappeared from the world map in one moment.


This song was created by Akiko Shikata during the development of Ar tonelico II: Melody of Metafalica, since the only thing she could think of during the quarrel between Cloche and Luca inside the Infelsphere was "Stop fighting already!!"[2]
