Daggerbreaker (Japanese: 暗器殺し Concealed Weapon Slayer), known as Shurikenbreaker prior to Fire Emblem Heroes, is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. It gives its user enormous advantages when fighting an enemy who is wielding a dagger or shuriken. In Fates, where it a class skill learned by Bow Knights, it provides enormous boosts to its user's hit rate and avoid when fighting these weapons.

In Heroes, it is a type B passive skill split into three levels, in order from lowest to highest: Daggerbreaker 1, Daggerbreaker 2, and Daggerbreaker 3. Units with a Daggerbreaker skill will, when fighting the user of a dagger skill while this skill's user's own HP is at a certain threshold or higher, automatically make a follow-up attack and prevent the dagger skill's user from doing so themselves. The minimum amount of current HP required to activate the skill decreases with each level.

Trivia

  • As a result of daggers and shuriken not existing in Awakening, Shurikenbreaker is the only one of the "-breaker" skills that did not debut in Awakening. This also makes Shurikenbreaker the only "-breaker" skill to not be granted by a "superior" weapon such as the Superior Edge. In all non-Japanese localizations of Fates, it is also the only "-breaker" skill which is named after a Hoshidan weapon type instead of the Nohr counterpart.
