Affects the user

Destiny Bond is a Ghost-type move. If the user faints as a result of an attack before taking another turn (or failing to do so because of effects like paralysis or sleep), the attacker also faints.

Destiny Bond does not activate if the user faints from indirect damage, such as poison, weather damage, or Leech Seed. It bypasses effects like Focus Sash, Sturdy, and Magic Guard.
