Aether Raids-Defensive Speed/Defense (Japanese: 速さ守備の防城戦 Speed-Defense Defend Castle Battle) is a three-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as AR-D Spd/Def 1, AR-D Spd/Def 2, and AR-D Spd/Def 3 in order from lowest to highest. It is a skill that takes effect only in the Aether Raids mode, and units with an AR-D Spd/Def skill boost their Speed and Defense during combat while on the defensive side of a battle based on the number of the player's structures that currently survive, with more structures granting a bigger boost; the scale of the stat boosts magnifies at higher tiers.
