Desperation is a Skill that debuted in TearRing Saga: Berwick Saga. It debuted in the Fire Emblem Series in Fire Emblem Heroes.

OverviewEdit

In Berwick Saga, it is a command skill that initiates combat with the user's defense reduced to 0 and the opponent's hit rate set to 100. However, the user's hit rate is increased by 22%. Furthermore, both units are able to counterattack if they take damage, and the faster unit can even make a follow-up attack like in other Fire Emblem games. This makes the skill high-risk, high-reward; however, if a unit is equipped with a shield, they can still activate it and get its durability boost, which helps mitigate risk. Weapons that attack consecutively such as the Tabarzin can also greatly reduce risk, as a strong enough unit may kill the enemy at greater reliability before even being hit. It can only be used against opponents capable of counterattacking.

In Fire Emblem Heroes, it makes the character perform a consecutive attack. This skill is comparable to how a Brave Sword performs consecutive attacks.

It can be learned without inheriting by: Ayra, Eirika (Sacred Memories), Karel, Mae, Navarre, Roy (Brave) and Shanna.

In Fire Emblem: Three Houses, it is a skill characters can gain upon mastering the Cavalier class. Certain characters can learn a variation of this Ability by raising their Authority, called Battalion Desperation, which instead requires the user's Battalion to be at 1/3rd endurance.
