When used, it stuns enemies to prevent them from moving for a single turn. In Path of Radiance it is activated by a menu command outside of battle and can target enemies adjacent to its user, while in Radiant Dawn it is a sword skill which unleashes an attack with its user's strength stat tripled and leaves surviving enemies immobilized.
