Dragonskin is a Skill that debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening.


Dragonskin halves all damage taken by the user and also prevents opposing units from activating Counter or Lethality. It is used by Grima on all difficulties in the Final Chapter and in The Future Past 3. Validar will have this skill starting from Hard Mode and up. All enemy units in Xenologue 22 will have this skill equipped as well.

In Fates, Dragonskin also reduces the effect of critical hits and offensive skills, as well as preventing all damage outside of battle.

In Fates, all final forms of the Yato (Blazing, Shadow, Omega) will deal 3/4 damage instead of 1/2 damage to units with Dragonskin.

In Heroes, it is the unique Skill A of Fell Vessel Robin and prevents weapons with flying effective damage from inflicting said bonus damage.

In Three Houses, the skill appears under the name Ancient Dragonskin, carried by certain monster-classified bosses. Besides halving damage and negating instant death, this variation of the skill also nullifies status conditions (save for paralysis caused by Armor Break) and prevents the holder from being forcibly moved.
