Full Counter全反撃 (フルカウンター)  Zen Hangeki (Furukauntā)」 is a reflective power possessed by the Dragon's Sin of Wrath, Meliodas and his brother Estarossa of the Ten Commandments.


Full Counter enables its user to reflect attacks aimed at him back at the enemy, but with more than double the power; therefore, the stronger the opponent's powers are, the stronger the user's power becomes. However, there are also many drawbacks to Full Counter: the user cannot initiate any attacks themselves[1], and they would not be able to reflect attacks if the opponent does not allow them to read the nature and timing of their attacks.[2]

There are two variations of Full Counter. Meliodas can only reflect "magic" attacks; his version of the ability is useless against indirect attacks, or an ordinary punch.[3] He can supplement this ability through clones who can use it separately from the original. On the other hand, Estarossa can only reflect "physical" attacks.



  • Counter Vanishカウンターバニッシュ Kauntā Banisshu」: With his palm facing an incoming attack, Meliodas folds his thumb and little finger. He then, rather than reflecting "magic" attacks, completely disperses the attacks used against him.[4]
  • Revenge Counterリベンジ・カウンター Ribenji Kauntā」: Meliodas turns off his abilities so that he can take damage. After Meliodas has taken enough damage, he charges his blade with power and strikes his enemy with it. This is considered to be Meliodas' ultimate attack and has an average survival rate of 0.2%.
