Taunt (挑発, Chōhatsu)? is commonly a Prayer Skill.

Effect[edit | edit source]

Generally, Taunt raises the foes' attack power by two levels, and decreases their defense by two levels.

In Devil Survivor, enemies will target the user that has used the skill, but he will receive less damage.

In Persona 5, Taunt is an Ailment skill. It has a high chance of inflicting the Rage ailment to 1 target.
