Mental Gauge is a gameplay mechanic introduced in Tactics Ogre: The Knight of Lodis.

This mechanic related to a character's morale and directly infuences whether or not it performs well in battle (ex: criticals, evasion, counterattacks, recruitment, etc.)

To see it, go to the character's status screen in-battle and press the SELECT button to see the individual data, then check the rainbow-colored bar beneath the character's sprite. It will always be set at 0 out of battle since morale/fear effects do not apply there, but in battle it can fluctuate from -2 to +2.

Negative values indicate fear and underperformance, while the opposite indicates courage and better performance in combat overall.

Some classes and emblems have effects over the Mental Gauge of allies, enemies and the character itself.
