|Icon of Dragonskin in Fates.|
Halves damage taken, crits, and off. skills. Prevents lethal, poison, and counter skills.
Dragonskin (Japanese: 竜鱗 Dragon Scales) is an enemy-exclusive combat skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening. It is primarily used by draconic late-to-endgame bosses such as Grima and Anankos. It halves damage dealt to its bearer and negates the effects of certain skills. Its Fates version also weakens critical hits and certain other skills, whereas its Echoes: Shadows of Valentia incarnation only serves to halve damage dealt.

Echoes: Shadows of Valentia
Fire Emblem Cipher
Dragonskin is present as a skill on two cards in Fire Emblem Cipher, albeit with different effects between the two:
- Gunter's Dragonskin skill (B06-096R Traitorous Old Knight) protects him from being destroyed by the effects of skills or as the cost paid to activate a skill.
- Grima's Dragonskin skill (B08-048R Baleful Dragon) increases her attack power by 20 points if her player controls more units than the opponent. This incentivizes the use of one of her other skills, "The Grimleal", which enhances the player's ability to deploy as many Risen at once as they can to keep their numbers high and trigger Dragonskin.
