Life and Death (死線 Shisen lit. Line of Death in the Japanese version) is a Skill introduced in Fire Emblem Fates and appears in Fire Emblem Heroes as a type A passive skill.


Life and Death is a powerful, but risky skill to use. It tremendously increases damage output but greatly adds to vulnerability, making it a good choice for attacking enemies that can't fight back, or when closely supported by allies who can shield the user during the opponent's turn. Life and Death works well with Vantage, which allows users to always take advantage of the extra 10 damage inflicted when on half health or lower. 

In Fire Emblem Heroes it can be learned without inheriting by: Hana, Igrene, Jaffar, Minerva, Sothe and Zephiel. In addition, only Leila and Igrene can inherit the final tier of the skill without inheritance.
