Retaliate is a rune effect in Fan of Knives, a Hatred-spending Demon Hunter skill attack.

This rune effect adds a powerful damage attack to nearby enemies, but one that only triggers if the Demon Hunter is hit. The utility of this for most bow-using Demon Hunters is questionable, since they are not hit very often and when they are it's generally by a ranged attack, from an attacker who is out of range of this skill.
