Description Accelerates Special trigger (cooldown count-1). If unit is not adjacent to an ally, inflicts Spd/Def-6 on foe and neutralizes effects that prevent unit's follow-up attacks during combat.

If unit is not adjacent to an ally and unit initiates combat while transformed, unit can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack.

At start of turn, if unit is adjacent to only beast or dragon allies or if unit is not adjacent to any ally, unit transforms (otherwise, unit reverts) If unit transforms, unit can move 1 extra space. (That turn only. Does not stack.) If unit transforms, grants Atk+2.


  • If unit initiates combat means if the user starts combat on their turn. The unit does not need to deal damage, nor be the first to attack.
    • However, if the effect is applied after combat, the unit must also survive it to fulfill this condition.

  • Crossbones Claw does not guarantee the user a follow-up attack.
  • If the user can perform a follow-up attack, either by a speed check or skill such as Brash Assault 3.png Brash Assault 3, the initial attack and follow-up will occur before the foe can perform a counterattack.
  • Skills such as Vantage 3.png Vantage 3 and the  Vantage status effect have priority over the Crossbones Claw's priority changing effect.
  • Crossbones Claw changes the attack priority, or order of attacks, and therefore can be disabled by skills such as Hardy Bearing 3.png Hardy Bearing 3.
  • Beast refers to .
  • Dragon refers to .
  • Crossbones Claw applies the  Mobility increased status effect.
    • Any 【Bonus】 on a unit lasts until the start of that unit's next phase. If  Mobility increased is acquired during the enemy phase, it will disappear when the next player phase begins.
    •  Gravity will negate the effects of Mobility increased.
  • The Atk+2 granted by Crossbones Claw when the user transforms is a stat boost, not a  bonus.
    • The stat boost and  Mobility increased effects of Crossbones Claw will only trigger if the unit is transformed.
