Three Houses

Unarmed Combat (Japanese: 素手格闘 Bare-hand fighting) is an ability introduced in Fire Emblem: Three Houses. Linked to the Brawler and Grappler classes, it allows the user to fight with no weapon equipped. In-game, this is represented by granting the user access to a special brawling weapon known as Unarmed (Japanese: 素手 Bare hands); this weapon is a weak, but very light brawling weapon. Its lack of weight can allow its user to double attack in cases where they would not be able to with other gauntlets.
