Critical (Japanese: ひっさつ Deadly) is a combat skill exclusive to Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. In the modified critical hit system employed by Genealogy of the Holy War, Critical is the basic means through which critical hits are possible; without Critical, the only avenues of performing a critical hit open to a unit are activating a combination bonus or Wrath. Unlike these other means, Critical is relatively easy to obtain by any unit through a weapon's kill bonus, and is not dependent on keeping a set other unit close at hand to the user.
