Reduces the enemy's Defense.
—Description

Armor Break is a Sword Arts ability, used by Steiner. It costs 4 MP to use, and can be learned for 30 AP from the Mythril Sword. It has a 50% accuracy rate, but can be used repeatedly. It halves the target's defense.

Final Fantasy XEdit

X Armor Break is found on Auron's section of the Sphere Grid. It attacks and sets the target's Defense at 0, as well as nullifying "Armored", meaning that even non-Piercing weapons deal normal damage. The inherent armor property of armored enemies cuts physical damage to 1/3 if attack is not Piercing.

Auron's Banishing Blade Overdrive alongside Frag Grenade (whether by Using or Mixing) are the two only attacks in the game that have 100% chance of inflict Armor Break, in contrast to Armor Break skill that not always inflicts this effect.

X-2 Armor Break is available via the Warrior dressphere, but it's weaker than it was in Final Fantasy X, reducing the target's defense, but not completely eradicating it. It costs 4 MP to use and 30 AP to learn. While damaging the target, it also reduces the target's defense by 2 which be stacked up to 10. It can also be used via Lady Luck's Attack Reels by rolling a Cherry. It also appears in the form of Armor Eraser, usable by Mascot Rikku, which targets all enemies and reduces their Defense by 3. However, Armor Eraser does not inflict damage.
