Skills (Japanese: スキル Sukiru) are special abilities Yo-kai have that can influence how a battle may go and progress.

There are several varieties of Skills:

  • Forward: These abilities are active 100% of the time.
  • Activation: These abilities do not become active until their criteria is achieved.
  • Continuous: These abilities are active 100%. Unlike Forward Skills, these abilities are static, and are more passive in nature.
  • Defensive: These abilities are either activation-based or continuous-based, but are played out in a more defensive manner.

Trivia

  • Certain Skills have it where they are worded/named differently, but function essentially the same as each other, and may have been reworded to reflect the personality of a Yo-kai. (e.g., the Annoyance and Suspicion Skills, which makes the Yo-kai liable to attack their allies or themselves)
