Darkness Sword (skill)
Darkness Sword is a skill that has never made an official appearance in the Fire Emblem series--Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War, the only time it appeared in a game's coding, had the Darkness Sword skill go unused.
Darkness Sword is a skill that can be activated both defensively and offensively. When triggered on an attack, it bolsters the user's attack by 20; and when triggered on an enemy's attack decreases incoming damage by 20 (minimum of 1 still applies). Based on its icon, it may have been intended to be one of the "Sword skills" and thus have been restricted to the Myrmidon and Thief promotion lines as well as Dancers.
