Notes[edit | edit source]

  • The stat decrease that can be applied by Def Ploy is considered a  penalty.
    • Any 【Penalty】 on a unit, including  penalties, lasts until that unit takes an action. If the unit takes multiple actions in a turn, they will only have the penalty for their first action.
  • Stat comparison takes place after all  bonuses on allies are removed, and before any new bonuses or  penalties are applied. Other existing bonuses and penalties on both units count towards their respective stats during stat comparison.
  • Cardinal directions refers to a targets being directly north, south, west, or east of the user. Distance does not factor.
