Attack/Defense Clash (Japanese: 攻撃守備の激突 Attack/Defense clash) is a four-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Atk/Def Clash 1, Atk/Def Clash 2, Atk/Def Clash 3, and Atk/Def Clash 4 in order from lowest to highest. When the unit initiating combat moves at least one space beforehand, Atk/Def Clash boosts its user's attack and defense based on how many spaces were moved; the stat boost increases with the skill's tier, and the fourth tier neutralizes its user's penalties to attack and defense if at least two spaces were moved.
