Laevateinn (レーヴァテイン, Rēvatein)? is a damage-dealing skill. It is a Fire combo skill in Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner 2. In Persona 5, it is a Physical skill exclusive to Goro Akechi, who initially uses it when he is fought against as a boss, and again when he returns as an ally in Persona 5 Royal.
Digital Devil Saga: Avatar Tuner 2
Laevateinn is a duo combo that requires one with Agidyne and another with any single-target Physical skill. It deals mega fire damage on one single enemy and reduces the target's defense by one level (effectively a Rakunda).
Persona 5 / Royal
When used by the party, Laevateinn deals colossal physical damage to 1 target.
When used in Akechi's boss encounter, Laevateinn deals heavy Almighty damage to 1 target, and Akechi is programmed to always target the protagonist using it. It occurs after being telegraphed by Akechi staring at him in the previous turn.
Despite it otherwise being guaranteed to target the protagonist, it is possible to manipulate Akechi into targeting someone else with Laevateinn by using either the Spotlight and Limelight tools, which boost the chances of having the ally it's used on to be targeted by attacks. However, it's recommended to have the protagonist guard instead.

- This is the only Persona skill exclusive to a certain party member that does not come from an Ultimate Persona awakening such as the third awakenings in Persona 4 Golden and Persona 5 Royal. If non-Persona skills are included, then Aigis and Metis' Orgia Mode tactics would precede this.
