Critical hit
Basic Information

In gaming, Critical Hit refers to a strike made against an enemy that is stronger than a regular attack. In many games, this is granted by random chance, but certain games contain provisions that allow them to be made more often, or increase the damage dealt by such hits.

There is no fixed amount for how much damage is caused by a critical hit, and varies widely from game to game. Some may treat it as double damage, while some may treat it as a multiplicative number of the base attack.
