Trilemma (Japanese: トリレンマ Trilemma) is an offensive skill in the staff category which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. Trilemma is a skill that is basically a double-edged sword in that, through their following actions, the target has their Attack penalized by 20% when they have the weapon triangle disadvantage, but also has their Attack boosted by 20% when they have the weapon triangle advantage; the Trilemma+ upgrade extends this effect to all of the target's allies within two spaces.
