First game

Three Houses

Apocalyptic Flame (Japanese: 劫火 Fire that destroys the world) is a combat art which debuted in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. It is linked with the Freikugel, and can only be used by units with the Crest of Goneril. It is an exceptionally powerful attack, granting the user massively increased might and a significantly increased hit rate, while also reducing the target's strength if they are hit by it. Additionally, like most combat arts associated with the Heroes' Relics, it is effective against dragons.
