The Weapon Unleash plugin lets you give battlers a chance to perform a skill that's different from the usual Attack or Guard action they have. Unleashes work off a success rate system, meaning they can but not always occur.

In addition to Unleashes, replacements for the default Attack and Guard actions also available through this plugin. Unlike Unleashes, replacements are always present. Though, if an Unleash manages to succeed, they will take over the replacement skill.

Each of these features can help alleviate the monotony of using the same commands over and over throughout the game, giving more life to the battle system and keeping it fresh and interesting.

Features include all (but not limited to) the following:

  • Weapon Unleashes allow Attack commands to perform a different skill at a percentile chance.
  • Guard Unleashes, in addition, allow Guard commands to perform a different skill at a percentile chance.
  • On the other hand, Replace Attack and Replace Guard traits will straight up replace the default Attack and Guard commands respectively.
  • If an Unleash succeeds, it will override the replacement skills.
  • Add JavaScript effects that run upon Unleash triggers.


This plugin is made for RPG Maker MZ. This will not work in other iterations of RPG Maker.

Understanding Weapon Unleashes and Guard Unleashes


If a battler (actor or enemy) has an associated Weapon or Guard Unleash notetag applied to itself (either directly, states, skills, or equipment), then it has a percent chance of performing an Unleash instead.

The Attack command can trigger Weapon Unleashes.

The Guard command can trigger Guard Unleashes.

In order for an Unleash to trigger, the battler must be able to use the skill normally. This means if the Unleash skill costs MP to use and the battler does not have enough MP, then the Unleash skill will not be performed. Likewise, if the Unleash skill is on cooldown, it will not trigger either.

If a battler has multiple
