Weapon (breath)

First game


Scalding Breath (Japanese: 蒸気のブレス Steam breath) is a weapon skill in the breath category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of the dragon version of Fáfnir. If the user's foe initiates combat or has high HP, Scalding Breath boosts its user's stats, negates effects guaranteeing the foe or depriving the user of follow-up attacks, and—if the user is not adjacent to any allies—reduces their Special charge rate.
