Tractor Beam is a recurring Symbology spell in the Star Ocean series. It's a medium-rank non-elemental symbol that inverts gravity on an area, dropping all foes found inside it on their backs. It has no effect on airborne and heavy enemies.
It first appeared in Star Ocean: Fantastic Space Odyssey as Ronyx J. Kenny's and Ioshua Jerand's symbol. In the PSP remake, both characters have their symbology list revised and Tractor Beam was removed from their move list. Tractor Beam was added into Millie Chliette symbology list instead.
This spell makes another appearance in Star Ocean: The Second Story and its PSP remake as one of Rena Lanford's attack symbol. It was first aligned to Star element in The Second Story and changed to non-elemental in the remake.
