«Embracer» (エンブレイザ, Enbureizā?) is a 1-hit Martial Arts category Sword Skill in Sword Art Online, New ALfheim Online, and Project Alicization.


«Embracer» consists of a single thrust with one's hand deep into the body of the target, dealing a significant amount of damage.[1]

The skill is activated by straightening the fingers of one hand,[1] bending it by the elbow and then drawing the arm backwards.[2]
