Trilemma (Japanese: トリレンマ Trilemma) is a weapon skill in the staff category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. Trilemma grants Triangle Adept—which boosts the impact of the weapon triangle by 20%—on enemies after combat; Trilemma inflicts it only on the foe, while Trilemma+ inflicts it on nearby foes as well.
