—Description

Dischord is a Lore spell that halves the target enemy's level, and costs 68 MP to cast. When facing an enemy with an odd level, Dischord will round up. It has a 100% hit rate, but will miss against those immune to Death. It can be learned from Chaser, Crawler, Dark Force, Figaro Lizard, Gamma, Lizard, Metal Hitman, and Satellite.

Level is the single most influential statistic which affects the damage for nearly everything. It is an important part in the calculation of damage, whether it be physical or magical. Dischord will halve the target's level for the remainder of the battle. Since the user's level affects nearly all attack damage and many success rates, this ability has more of an impact than it may look like at first glance. Dischord also helps with improving the success rate for both Steal and Mug, which compares Locke/Gogo's level to the target's.

The formula for Dischord is:

$Target's level = (current level + 1) / 2$

## EtymologyEdit

Dischord is the combination of "dis-" and "chord".

Dis- is a prefix for "reversal" or "removal".

A chord, in music, is any harmonic set of pitches consisting of two or more (usually three or more) notes (also called "pitches") that are heard as if sounding simultaneously.
