Battle is a keyword action.

Details

It is an event which occurs when a creature attacks another creature or becomes blocked by another creature.

This causes the 2 creatures to compare power, with the creature with the lowest power being put into the graveyard. If both creatures have the same power, both creatures are put into the graveyard. If an effect prevents the creature with the lower power from being destroyed, both creatures remain tapped. The only exceptions are Win All Battles abilities where a creature with lower power may destroy a creature with higher power in a direct battle.

Details

A battle does NOT occur when an unblocked creature attacks the opponent in order to break a shield or win the game.
