In the .hack//Games, an Added Effect is a special property of a weapon. Added Effects trigger randomly when the player attacks with that weapon. Certain monsters also trigger added effects with their attacks.

Added Effects include:

  • Death (Reduces target's HP by a large percentage)
  • Life Drain (Restores player's HP)
  • Skill Drain (Damages target's SP and restores player's SP)
  • Critical (Attack deals more damage than normal)
  • No Damage (Cancels the effects of certain enemy attacks; this is the only Added Effect found on an armor)
