Suikoden IIEdit

The Family Attack deals 2x damage to one opponent, but Nanami becomes unbalanced when it ends. During the attack, Riou and Nanami attack a target in perfect synch.

There is a small chance that Nanami may mess up (Leisure Attack instead of Family Attack) and start slacking off by cheering, eating, drinking, reading manga and singing as Riou keeps on attacking. When this happens, Nanami will not be unbalanced and she will recover some HP after the attack, however the damage to the opponent will lessen as well.

If Nanami is equipped with the Leisure set, the rate of Nanami performing the leisure attack will be raised.
