B Killing Intent.png Killing Intent 300 At start of combat, if foe's HP < 100% or if【Penalty】is active on foe, inflicts Spd/Res-5 on foe, and if unit initiates combat, unit can make a follow-up attack before foe can counterattack.

All effects that last "on foe through its next action." Includes penalties inflicted by a skill like Panic or Threaten and negative status effects (preventing counterattacks, restricting movement, or the effects of a skill like Triangle Adept or Guard).
This skill can only be equipped by its original unit.

* Unused restrictions: No restrictions.


  • 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.

  • Killing Intent does not guarantee the user a follow-up attack.
  • If the user can perform a follow-up attack, either by a speed check or a 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 Killing Intent's priority changing effect.
  • Killing Intent changes the attack priority, or order of attacks, and therefore can be disabled by skills such as Hardy Bearing 3.png Hardy Bearing 3.
  • 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.
