The icon of Play Dead as seen in Xenoblade Chronicles.

Play Dead is one of Riki's aura arts in Xenoblade Chronicles. It allows Riki to feign death by lying down, removing all aggro. After five seconds, Riki gets up and receives the same HP recovery as if he had been revived from incapacitation. In addition, the physical damage of Riki's next art will be increased by 50%.
