Description Grants Res+3. At start of combat, if foe’s HP < 100%, grants Atk/Spd+5 during combat, and if foe initiates combat, unit can counterattack before foe’s first attack.
Effect:【Dagger 7】

【Dagger 7】
After combat, if unit attacked, inflicts Def/Res-7 on target and foes within 2 spaces of target through their next actions.


  • The "if foe's HP < 100%" condition is a mistranslation of "if foe's HP ≤ 99%"; if the foe's HP is strictly between 99% and 100%, this condition would fail. However, this is only possible when the unit is in combat against Røkkr enemies, as normal enemy units have a maximum of 99 HP.
  • The stat increase that can be applied by Athame is considered a combat boost.
  • Athame does not grant the user the ability to counterattack regardless of foe's range.
  • If the user can counterattack, either from using a weapon with the same range as the foe's weapon or from skills such as Counter passives, the user's counterattack will occur before the foe's initial attack.
  • Athame changes the attack priority, or order of attacks, and therefore can be disabled by skills such as Hardy Bearing 3.png Hardy Bearing 3.
  • If unit attacked means if the wielder attacked at any time during combat. They do not need to initiate combat, deal damage, or survive.
    • This means that if the foe initiates combat and the user cannot counterattack, the effect will not activate.
  • The stat decrease that can be applied by Athame is considered a  penalty.
    • Any 【Penalty】 on a unit, including  penalties, lasts until that unit takes an action. If the unit takes multiple actions in a turn, they will only have the penalty for their first action.
      • If the unit also has  Grand Strategy, any  penalties will remain active until the start of that unit's next phase.
