Awakening

Vengeance (Japanese: 復讐 Vengeance) is an offensive skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening. Associated with the Sorcerer class, when activated it deals extra damage to the enemy based on how low the user's current HP is relative to their maximum. It appears in Three Houses as a combat art linked to the lance skill instead.

Trivia

  • In both Awakening and Fates, Vengeance has the highest activation rate of any offensive skill, though tied with Rend Heaven in Fates. In Awakening, if a unit with Vengeance has 50 or more skill (possible through children with certain fathers, when paired up, or through skills like Limit Breaker), it is possible for Vengeance to have an activation rate of 100% or more. In Fates, 100% Vengeance activation requires both Quixotic and Hoshidan Unity, on top of a large number of statues to boost the Skill cap of units to 50 or higher.
  • In Awakening, the maximum possible extra damage which can be dealt with Vengeance by a playable unit is 44, achievable by a unit with 90 maximum HP (only possible for a promoted unit with HP +5 and who has had a HP Tonic or Kris's Confect used on them) who currently has only one HP remaining; without HP +5 or items, the maximum damage dealt under the same conditions is 39. There are a small number of enemies with 99 maximum HP, for whom the maximum possible extra damage they could deal with Vengeance is 49 under the same conditions; however, no enemy with 99 HP has Vengeance.
    • In Fates, the maximum possible extra damage for a playable unit is 39, achievable only by a General or Berserker who has reached the class's maximum 70 HP, possesses the HP +5 skill, has used a HP Tonic, and has 1 HP remaining.
