On this wiki, I have seen "techniques" and "attacks" used interchangeably when listing characters' attacks/techniques. I have been wondering about the difference between the two terms. In video games and guidebooks, I've seen "attacks" be used rather than "techniques". Which one should be used over the other? Meshack (talk) 06:41, November 19, 2016 (UTC)


All attacks are techniques but not all techniques are attacks. Techniques can be defensive or non-combat as well. Awaikage Talk 14:44, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

I think there is a slight difference in that all attacks are techniques, but not all techniques are attacks. For example, Sanji's Blue Walk is a technique, it has no offensive capability, therefore it is not an attack.

However, as far as our articles are concerned, I don't think it matters which term is used, as long as it is properly used. To see the same word used every time would be quite boring. JustSomeDude...  Talk | 14:46, November 26, 2016 (UTC)

I don't think this is much of an issue, really. I trust that the editors know that a strategic move like idk Blue Walk is not an attack. Aurora[1] | Yes? 15:54, November 26, 2016 (UTC)
