Dragonskin (邪悪なドラゴンの鱗 Jaryū no Uroko lit. Evil Dragon's Scale in the Japanese version of Awakening; 竜鱗 Ryū Uroko lit. Dragon Scale in Fates) is an enemy Skill from Fire Emblem Awakening and Fire Emblem Fates.


Dragonskin halves all damage taken by the user and also prevents opposing units from activating Counter or Lethality. It is used by Grima on all difficulties in the Final Chapter and in The Future Past 3. Validar will have this skill starting from Hard Mode and up. All enemy units in Xenologue 22 will have this skill equipped as well.

In Fates, Dragonskin also reduces the effect of critical hits and offensive skills, as well as preventing all damage outside of battle.

In Fates, all final forms of the Yato (Blazing, Shadow, Omega) will deal 3/4 damage instead of 1/2 damage to units with Dragonskin.
