Channel holy energy through sword to inflict damage.
Northswain's Strike (北斗骨砕打, Hokuto Kotsusai Da?, lit. North Star Bone-Crushing Strike), also known as Crush Punch, is a recurring ability in the series. It is a powerful ability used by high-leveled Knights, and has mostly been associated with Agrias Oaks and Delita Heiral.
"The doom of a planet... Crush Punch!"
Northswain's Strike is an ability used by the Holy Knight, Rune Knight, and Sword Saint classes, learned for 500 JP. It activates instantly and has a range of 3 (but no vertical range), and inflicts Holy-elemental damage and KO to one target.
Non-Final Fantasy appearancesEdit
Agrias is a unit with the unique ability Northswains Strike, which at max level gives her an additional 4 damage on attacks for three turns, as well as 50% chance to instantly defeat the unit it attacked during this time.
- The concept of Northswain's Strike's additional instant death effect refers to the Chinese deity of Northern Dipper associated with death whose role is similar to that of the Grim Reaper.
