Here, the target is facing to the right, and attacks coming from the 180 degree cone behind it count as coming from behind.

Striking from behind refers to character attacking from the angle of 180 degrees behind an enemy, which enables additional effects from certain skills. When striking defiant foes, all attacks are considered as coming from behind, and their additional effects are always applied. "Behind" is a stricter version of the game mechanic flanking, which allows a wider angle of attacks, both from behind and from the side of a target.
