Guaranteed Follow-Ups[1] is a status effect that grants a guaranteed follow-up attack to the affected unit if they initiate combat. For sources of this status effect, see the category page Sources of Guaranteed Follow-Ups.

Skill Interaction[]

Main article: Skill interaction
  • If unit initiates combat means if the user starts a 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.
  • As a general rule, if a unit is both prevented from making, and guaranteed to make, a follow-up attack, the effects cancel out, and the standard speed check decides instead.
  • A foe with skills such as Null Follow Up 3.png Null Follow-Up 3 or a status effect such as  Null Follow-Up will disable  Guaranteed Follow-Ups.
When a unit has this status effect, an icon is shown on their sprite on the map.
