Congratulations, general. You have been promoted.
- Advisor

General's Power is an ability of Generals obtained after obtaining some promotions while engaging a battle. There are various types of ability, from unit ambushes to superweapons and upgrades. The abilities can be activated unless all of the general's command centers are destroyed.

All General Powers require at least one promotion point. If multiple ranks (up to 3) are available, one point must be spent for each to fully upgrade it. Once a promotion point is spent, it cannot be refunded.
