Limit Breaker is a type of stat for all Units, corresponding to a Basic stat. These stats are bonus stats that are added to the unit's Total stats by enhancing it with an 'Enhancer'-type unit of the corresponding stat (e.g. HP-enhancer, DEF-enhancer). The higher a corresponding Limit Breaker stat is, the higher the main stat will go above its original cap. However, these bonuses also have a cap which cannot be broken.


In games and sports, a tiebreaker or tiebreak is used to determine a winner from among players or teams that are tied at the end of a contest, or a set of contests.
