Thorn Lance (Japanese: 薔薇の槍 Rose Lance) is a weapon skill in the lance category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of the Valentine's variation of Rudolf. If its user's attack is higher than the foe's, Thorn Lance reduces the foe's attack and defense and prevents their follow-up strike.
