Icon of the Formshift skill in Radiant Dawn.

Allows the unit to transform at any time. The unit will stay transformed until choosing to revert forms.






Formshift (Japanese: 王者 King) is a combat skill which is exclusive to Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn. Exclusively used by the kings and queens of the laguz tribes, it allows these characters to completely ignore the effects of their transform gauge and allows them to transform into their animal form any time they wish for as long as they wish, without ever being forced to revert automatically. It replaces the Laguz Band item of Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, which performed the same function.
