Game(s)

Lancebreaker (Japanese: 槍殺し Lance Slayer) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening. It gives its user enormous advantages when fighting an enemy who is wielding a lance or naginata. In Awakening, it is a class skill learned by Griffon Riders; in Fates, it is a class skill learned by Blacksmiths; while in Three Houses, it is an ability learned by units when they raise their skill level in axe. It provides enormous boosts to its user's hit rate and avoid when fighting these weapons.

In Heroes, it is a type B passive skill split into three levels, in order from lowest to highest: Lancebreaker 1, Lancebreaker 2, and Lancebreaker 3. Units with a Lancebreaker skill will, when fighting the user of a lance skill while this skill's user's own HP is at a certain threshold or higher, automatically make a follow-up attack and prevent the lance skill's user from doing so themselves. The minimum amount of current HP required to activate the skill decreases with each level.
