In ''[[Fire Emblem: Rekka no Ken]]'' and ''[[Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones]]'', Silencer uses half of the user's critical rate as a percentage. This makes it highly recommended to use [[Myrmidon]]s as the base unit when creating an Assassin unit in ''The Sacred Stones'', as Myrmidons typically possess high [[Skill (stat)|skill]] stats. It cannot activate against the [[Fire Dragon]] or [[Fomortiis]], but can activate against other bosses, although the use of the [[Iron Rune|Iron Rune/Hoplon Guard]] will prevent it from triggering.

*In ''Awakening'', activating Lethality won't necessary mean the user will be guaranteed to hit. Since this skill only modifies the next move to be a one-hit kill, it can be countered via [[Dual Guard]], simply be dodged like a normal attack if the user's Hit rate is low enough, and even [[Miracle]] can counter its effect.
+
*Enemies never have Lethality on them in games where they appear where the skill is triggered by stats for balancing reasons.
**A Lethality hit can still become a [[critical hit]], despite the fact that the target would be killed anyway. It remains useful however as a critical hit guarantees the attack will hit the target, since critical hits cannot miss (due to Hit rate being calculated before Crit. rate) and are not countered by Dual Guards.
+
**In the GBA series, there are no generic Assassins because of this.
**A Lethality hit can also trigger the target's [[Great Shield|Pavise]] or [[Aegis]] skill to activate, despite it not having any effect since Lethality will always strike the opponent with an equal amount of damage to that of the targets remaining HP.
+
*In both ''Awakening'' and ''Fates'', Lethality has the following properties:
  +
** Lethality changes the next attack of the user to one-hit a foe, but does not guarantee that it will hit. This means it is possible to avoid the Lethality hit.
  +
** If the target is struck by a Lethality hit, [[Pavise]] and [[Aegis]] can still activate, even though Lethality will always ignore them.
  +
** Triggered guards from a [[Pair Up]] in ''Awakening'' or a filled [[Guard Stance]] in ''Fates'' will block the Lethality hit.
  +
** [[Miracle]] can trigger against a Lethality hit, meaning that a user hit by Lethality can survive if it activates.
  +
*** If the said unit has [[Counter]] or [[Countermagic]] (in ''Fates''), since it did not instantly kill the opponent, the damage will be returned to the attacker. It is possible for the attacker to die from the reflected damage if it is high enough.
  +
*In ''Awakening'', the highest obtainable activation rate for Lethality is 25%. This is obtained with [[Inigo]] as Chrom's son, being in the Assassin class with [[Limit Breaker]], which will give him 60 Skill, or 15% activation rate. This is increased to 25% with [[Rightful King]].
  +
*In ''Fates'', playable first-generation characters can have a minimum 15% activation rate on Lethality with [[Quixotic]], not factoring in their current skill stat. The Avatar and children characters can have a minimum 25% activation rate (also not factoring in their skill stat), as they can learn [[Hoshidan Unity]] which stacks with Quixotic and adds an additional 10% activation rate.
  +
*In ''Echoes: Shadows of Valentia'', the skill Lethality is fully programmed in the game files but goes unused during normal gameplay.

Lethality is a special skill native to the Assassin-related classes; it first debuted in TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, but debuted in the Fire Emblem series with the release of Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade.

In TearRing Saga: Utna Heroes Saga, this skill is known as Blazing Wind, or Gale in the fan translation.

OverviewEdit

In its various incarnations, activating Lethality will instantly deplete the enemy's health, regardless of the normal battle damage calculations. The potency of this effect is countered by the lowest activation rate of any attacking skill.

In Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade and Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, Silencer uses half of the user's critical rate as a percentage. This makes it highly recommended to use Myrmidons as the base unit when creating an Assassin unit in The Sacred Stones, as Myrmidons typically possess high skill stats. It cannot activate against the Fire Dragon or Fomortiis, but can activate against other bosses, although the use of the Iron Rune/Hoplon Guard will prevent it from triggering.

In the Japanese version of Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Bane is called Shunsatsu, or what is known as Lethality in the earlier games.

In Awakening and Fates, if the user battles an enemy with Dragonskin, the skill is disabled. This skill is prioritized first over all other skill-activated attack skills. This is likely because it is the least likely to occur and the most devastating if activated. It can be blocked by Dual Guard and Guard Stance or the enemy can survive if they have Miracle and it activates.

TriviaEdit

  • Enemies never have Lethality on them in games where they appear where the skill is triggered by stats for balancing reasons.
    • In the GBA series, there are no generic Assassins because of this.
  • In both Awakening and Fates, Lethality has the following properties:
    • Lethality changes the next attack of the user to one-hit a foe, but does not guarantee that it will hit. This means it is possible to avoid the Lethality hit.
    • If the target is struck by a Lethality hit, Pavise and Aegis can still activate, even though Lethality will always ignore them.
    • Triggered guards from a Pair Up in Awakening or a filled Guard Stance in Fates will block the Lethality hit.
    • Miracle can trigger against a Lethality hit, meaning that a user hit by Lethality can survive if it activates.
      • If the said unit has Counter or Countermagic (in Fates), since it did not instantly kill the opponent, the damage will be returned to the attacker. It is possible for the attacker to die from the reflected damage if it is high enough.
  • In Awakening, the highest obtainable activation rate for Lethality is 25%. This is obtained with Inigo as Chrom's son, being in the Assassin class with Limit Breaker, which will give him 60 Skill, or 15% activation rate. This is increased to 25% with Rightful King.
  • In Fates, playable first-generation characters can have a minimum 15% activation rate on Lethality with Quixotic, not factoring in their current skill stat. The Avatar and children characters can have a minimum 25% activation rate (also not factoring in their skill stat), as they can learn Hoshidan Unity which stacks with Quixotic and adds an additional 10% activation rate.
  • In Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, the skill Lethality is fully programmed in the game files but goes unused during normal gameplay.
