Skill (Japanese: Skill) is the stat that defines the unit's hit rate and also their critical hit rate. In Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance, Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn, Fire Emblem Awakening, and Fire Emblem Fates it is used to calculate the activation rate of many offensive skills such as Aether or Sol. Items such as the Secret Book increase the unit's skill permanently.

Hit rate

Skill is the primary unit stat to effect the unit's hit rate in battle.

Critical hit rate

A unit's critical hit % chance is the chance the unit will land a critical hit. Skill is one of the factors involved in increasing a unit's critical hit rate, though the potency of skill's effect on crit varies by game.
