Instinctive Reaction Skill determines the chance at which you automatically engage the enemy that initiates the combat.


  • The monster or player-controlled character passively and automatically retaliates against Melee Skills and attacks with a Normal Attack.
    • Fighter Skills as well as Dischord are not retaliated against, however.
    • Since Instinctive Reaction is a normal attack, all of the limitations of a normal melee attack apply.
    • Instinctive Reaction cannot be used if the monster has a skill prepared, is stunned from another attack, has a Bow, Crossbow, Atlatl, or Dual Gun equipped, or otherwise cannot use normal melee. This includes Rest as well.
  • An enemy has a chance to automatically retaliate if their Knockdown Gauge is greater than 40%.
  • Starting at Rank A, a monster may retaliate if their Knockdown Gauge is 0%.
  • Starting at Rank 5, a monster may retaliate at any time, even if it is currently fighting another target.
  • Instinctive Reaction can intercept Lance attacks despite being out of range.
