Description Grants Spd+3. At start of combat, if unit's HP ≥ 25%, grants Atk/Spd+6 to unit during combat, and also, if unit initiates combat or foe initiates combat and uses magic or staff, reduces damage from foe's first attack by 40% and boosts unit's next attack by total damage reduced (by any source, including other skills). Resets at end of combat.


  • The stat increase that can be applied by Ginnungagap is considered a combat boost.
  • Magic refers to .
  • The damage reduction is calculated after offensive Specials and skills that deal extra damage, such as Icon Class Red Sword.png Wo Dao+.
    • Damage reductions by percentage stack multiplicatively, unlike interactions related to the weapon-triangle, such as gem weapons and  Triangle Adept.
      • For example, if both Icon Class Green Axe.png Urvan and Deflect Magic 1.png Deflect Magic 1 activate, the total damage reduction is 86% instead of 110%, since the two skills reduce the damage to (1 − 80%) × (1 − 30%) = 14% of the original.
    • For more information, see Damage calculation.
  • Icon Skill Special.png Deadeye, Icon Skill Special.png Lethality, Icon Skill Special.png Sublime Heaven, Icon Skill Special.png Twin Blades, and Icon Skill Weapon.png Bow of Frelia and Icon Class Red Sword.png Lioness Blade with offensive Specials will neutralize Ginnungagap's damage reduction effect when the special triggers.
  • Icon Class Red Tome.png Þjálfi will reduce the damage reduction of Ginnungagap by 50%.
  • If Ginnungagap triggers multiple times during combat, all reduced damage is accumulated up to the unit's next attack, and resets to 0 at the end of combat. If the unit cannot counterattack the damage boost will not be used.
  • The damage boost effect of Ginnungagap ignores Def and Res.
  • Sources of damage reduction by percent that stack multiplicatively with Ginnungagap's damage reduction include allies' skills such as Domain of Ice.png Domain of Ice and Icon Class Colorless Staff.png Caduceus Staff. These skills will also count for Ginnungagap's damage boost.
  • Skills such as Icon Skill Special.png Miracle and Icon Class Green Axe.png Hel's Reaper will also count as a source of damage reduction, and therefore will calculate the damage boost equal to the total damage from the foe's damage (including calculations with specials) -1.
    • For example, a foe dealing 30 damage and triggering Icon Skill Special.png Glimmer would deal 45 damage, but the damage boost for the unit's next attack will be 44 damage if a skill such as Icon Skill Special.png Miracle or Icon Class Green Axe.png Hel's Reaper was not triggered by that foe's attack.
