If you deal damage to an opponent in the same round that you successfully feinted against it, it becomes flatfooted. This effect lasts 1 round or until the opponent's next turn, whichever comes first.

Opponents that can't be caught flat-footed, such as characters who have uncanny dodge, cannot be affected by Surprising Riposte.
