A successful block occurs when the Hero(es) in battle do not accomplish their goal. This can mean different things for Rescue Attempts and Battle Challenges. If at any point, the battle was a Rescue Attempt, then a successful block occurs anytime no Lost Soul is rescued during Battle Resolution. If the battle began as a Battle Challenge and never became a Rescue Attempt, a successful block can happen in any of the following ways:
- All attacking Heroes are removed from the Field of Battle before Battle Resolution by a special ability.
- The battle ends in a stalemate.
- The battle ends with the blocking Evil Character(s) defeating the Hero(es) by total strength and toughness comparison.
