Panic Ploy (Japanese: 恐慌の奇策 Panic Ploy) is a three-tiered passive type C skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as Panic Ploy 1, Panic Ploy 2, and Panic Ploy 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Panic Ploy skill allows their wielders to turn any bonuses on foes in cardinal directions from the user into penalties provided their HP is below a certain threshold of the user's through their following actions; the HP threshold needed for activation decreases with the skill's tier.
