Pavise (Japanese: 大盾 Great Shield), previously known as Great Shield and Cancel, is a combat skill debuting in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. In most appearances, when activated, it protects the user from a single attack by nullifying the damage dealt; however, in Awakening it was reduced to halving damage only for attacks with physical weapons, while the newly-introduced Aegis skill covers magical attacks. The skill's availability has wildly varied from game to game, as have its activation criteria.
In Fire Emblem: Thracia 776 and Radiant Dawn, Pavise is a personal skill, and in the latter can be equipped to any unit. In Genealogy of the Holy War, Thracia 776, The Sacred Stones, Awakening, and Fates, Pavise is a class skill belonging to Generals and similar classes, and in Path of Radiance, Cancel is the mastery skill of the Hawk laguz.
