Break is a debuff in Xenoblade Chronicles.
Most large enemies have total resistance to Break outside of Chain Attacks. In those cases, Break can only be inflicted during Chain Attacks. In addition, most flying monsters are immune to Break.
Arts that can inflict Break are colored pink, and therefore increase Chain Attack damage when used subsequently. Equipping the Break gem grants auto-attacks a chance to inflict Break on hit. Enemies do not utilise Break.
