Lethality, formerly Silencer, (Japanese: 瞬殺 Instant Kill, or 滅殺 Annihilator) is an offensive skill which debuted in Fire Emblem despite a defined skill system not existing, before first appearing as a proper defined skill in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. In all of its appearances save Fates (where it is instead associated with Master Ninjas), it is the defining trait of the Assassin class; when activated, it instantly kills the enemy, independent of all other factors.

Trivia

  • In Fire Emblem and The Sacred Stones, Lethality's animation is identical to that of a standard Assassin critical hit, differentiated only by the user's sprite vibrating briefly when it activates, and the screen being dominated by bright red/purple flashes when the Lethality attack connects with the target.
  • In the Japanese version of The Sacred Stones the flash is identical to its appearance in Fire Emblem, being red. For unknown reasons the localizations changed the flash's color to purple.
  • The Path of Radiance version of Lethality is currently the only one which, when its attack lands, does not completely block out the entire screen with its flash.
  • The skill Bane in Radiant Dawn shares both the name and the icon of Path of Radiance Lethality in the Japanese version. In international versions, it only shares its icon.
