Tome of Despair (Japanese: 破滅の邪書 Evil book of ruin) is a weapon skill in the red tome category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it is a personal weapon of the fallen variation of male Morgan. Tome of Despair is a skill that boosts its user's Attack, drops its target's Attack and Resistance during combat when its user has high enough HP, and can also apply a number of effects based on the sum of the user's bonuses and target's penalties.

HP ≥ 25%, inflicts Atk/Res-6 on foe during
combat, and also, the following effects will
occur based on the value of total bonuses on

"foe cannot make a follow-up attack"; and
if ≥ 10, "unit makes a guaranteed follow-up
attack"; and if ≥ 15, "inflicts Special cooldown
charge -1 on foe per attack during combat."
