A unitís ability can turn any situation in your favor if used at the right time.
About this creation

-Unit Ability icons are made of 2 parts- a 6X6 stud emblem, and the cooldown timer to the right of that.

-The Ability Icon and cooldown timer are placed on the lower left portion of a unitís Profile card and Battle card, as seen below.

-Units enter the field with their units' Abilities fully charged and ready to use.
-Each transparent yellow mark in the cooldown timer bar represents one turn, thus the total number of marks tells you the number of turns before you can use it again. When an ability is active, it lasts for your current turn and your opponentsí next turn. Once it comes back around to your turn again, the ability is deactivated and begins recharging.
-When an ability is in use, Itís status color at the top of the recharge meeter should be transparent green, and if it effects any stats on that unit or an opponentís unit, the stat buffs or debuffs should be posted next to the appropriate stat on the appropriate unitís battle card. When it is standing by or ready to use, itís status color should be transparent yellow. When it is recharging, it should be transparent white, and all the marks on the cooldown timer should be transparent white, accept for the bottom most one, which should be transparent yellow, signifying it has recharged one turn since use. After another turn, one mark should be changed to transparent yellow again, showing that the ability has recharged 1 more turn. Continue this pattern until it has recharged fully. NOTE: YOU MUST WAIT THE APPROPRIATE AMMOUNT OF TURNS BEFORE USING AN ABILITY. That means that there will be 1 turn before you can use it again where the ability cooldown timer is full, but you cannot use it.

-Abilities with no cooldown timer are passive and are always in effect.
-Abilities are colored to match which stat they most effect. Red abilities effect attack, yellow effect range, blue (dark azur in the color pallette in LDD) effect health/armor, and green effect movement.
Now, on to the abilities! More will surely be added, so check here frequently for more or post your own ideas!
