Each skill has its own Skill Level that increases as it keeps gaining Skill Experience by being used, granting bonuses to the skill. Skill Experience is obtained for each use of a skill, regardless of targets or the strength of the skill's effect.

When a character Reincarnates they lose part of each skill's total experience (depending on the Inheritance Rate of the Reincarnation), decreasing the level of their skills accordingly.

Disgaea 1 and 2[]

  • Experience: Unique Skills gain 20 EXP per use, Weapon Skills gain EXP equal to the corresponding Weapon Mastery grade, and Spells gain EXP equal to Staff Mastery grade. The experience necessary to gain a new level is 50*(CurrentLevel+1), and the total necessary to go from level 1 to 99 is 247,450.
  • Effects:
    • SP Cost: Each level increases a skill's SP cost by 5% + 0.5.
    • Attack Power: Attack skills get a multiplier to their power(applied after additive bonuses).
    • Spell Bonus: Spells gain 1 more range at levels 1, 3, 5, 7 and 10, and 1 more panel of area on every level until 9.

Upon Reincarnating, if a skill would lose enough EXP to return to level zero then the character will forget that skill (though it can still be relearned).

Disgaea 3 and 4[]

  • Experience: Unique Skills gain 20 EXP per use, Weapon and Magichange Skills gain 5 EXP per use, and Spells gain 10 EXP per use. The experience necessary to gain a new level is 50*(CurrentLevel+1), and the total necessary to go from level 1 to 99 is 247,450.
  • Effect: Attack skills gain a power bonus +1% per level. This bonus is added to the multiplier from Evility Shop boosts. In Disgaea 4, only skills from Generic units receive this bonus.

Disgaea D2[]

  • Effects:
    • SP Cost: Each level increases a skill's SP cost.
    • Power: Attack/healing skills have increased power. Buff/debuff skills have increased effect. Ailment Spells have increased chance.
    • Spell Bonus: Spells get an increase to range and area of effect.

Disgaea 5 onward[]

  • Experience: All skills gain 100 EXP per use in Disgaea 5, and 50 EXP per use from Disgaea 6 onward. The experience necessary to gain a new level is 10*(CurrentLevel+16), and the total necessary to go from level 1 to 99 is 64,190.
