Death Blow is a skill in the Fire Emblem series that was introduced in Fire Emblem Fates. It boosts critical rate when the user triggers a battle. There is a skill in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia that works very differently.

Effect

Fire Emblem Fates

When the user starts the battle, he gains +20 in their critical hit rate. It works well with high critical weapons and skills that boost damage like Rend Heaven.

Fire Emblem Heroes

Since the game lacks a critical stat, Death Blow raises the Attack stat of the user when they initiate a fight. It increases the Attack more with the later versions. Death Blow 1 or the other relevant Blow skill is necessary to learn Swift Sparrow, Sturdy Blow or Mirror Strike.

  • Death Blow 1 - Cost 50 SP. Gives Attack +2 during combat when initiating the attack
  • Death Blow 2 - Cost 100 SP. Gives Attack +4 during combat when initiating the attack
  • Death Blow 3 - Cost 200 SP. Gives Attack +6 during combat when initiating the attack

Shadows of Valentia

Death Blow in Shadows of Valentia is the signature weapon skill of the Ilwoon. When the skill is used, it deals lots of damage effective against armored units at the cost of 4 HP. It takes 20 SP to learn.
