Slap a single enemy, dealing a small amount of damage and stunning them for 1 turn.

Overview

Slap is one of the 10 unique skills that can be learned from Frogidi's Fortunes.
Slap has no alternative colors.

The timing for the Action Command is about a second after the player's arm is raised.
Succeeding the Action Command performs a 'Critical!' hit, increasing the amount of POW.pngDamage dealt by 1 and inflicting the Stun.pngStun status.

Usage

Slap deals one of the lowest total amount of POW.pngDamage in the game, but is compensated with the Stun.pngStun status on a 'Critical!' hit and has a SP.png0 SP cost.

Compared to the other SP.png0 SP cost Frogidi's Fortune skill, Basic Archery deals overall more POW.pngDamage, resulting in Slap only being useful to stall an enemy.

There is also Tough Vine Trap, which is effectively a stronger version of Slap, dealing POW.png1 Damage more and can still inflict Stuck.pngStuck if the Action Command is failed.

One of the more useful enemies to use Slap on is against Wraiths, as they are vulnerable to Stun.pngStun and can potentially deal high POW.pngDamage with Evil Impact each turn. However, Savage Hit and Stunning Vine Trap can achieve better results at the cost of some SP.pngSP.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 1 enemies, Slap isn't any more useful than before.

Against Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ enemies, Basic Archery outclasses Slap for its DEF.pngDefense piercing and the enemies' immunity to Stun.pngStun.

Overall, Slap holds a spot of utility for Stun.pngStunning an enemy for one turn, however it is mostly overshadowed by other skills of the same SP.pngSP cost which can outright defeat an enemy.

Notes

  • Slap will not inflict Stun.pngStun if no POW.pngDamage was dealt or if the target has the StunGuard.pngStun Guard status.
  • Bosses and all Corruption.pngCorruption 2+ enemies are immune to the Stun.pngStun status.

Trivia

  • First skill introduced in the game to cost SP.png0 SP and also inflict a status.
