Lethal is a keyword that can be found on Creatures and Items in the Elder Scrolls Legends that first appeared in the Core Set. Creatures with Lethal destroy any creature they can damage through combat or other abilities.
This makes Lethal creatures with a low attack still dangerous during the late game and can easily remove Guards with high health. It works especially well with the protection of Cover or with Charge to instantly kill a creature. Lethal is predominantly associated with Agility and Endurance. Creatures with the keyword can be recognized by their green glowing Attack icon.


  • Battle: The Battled creature is directly destroyed by the Lethal damage.
  • Breakthrough: While creatures with Lethal do destroy a defending creature with only one damage, only excess damage higher than the defending creature’s health will be dealt to the opponent.
  • Ward: Warded creatures absorb all incoming damage and do not get destroyed by Lethal.
