Crafty Fighter (Japanese: 抑止隊形 Deterrence Formation) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Crafty Fighter 1, Crafty Fighter 2, and Crafty Fighter 3 in order from lowest to highest. When the use meets an HP threshold and the foe initiates combat, Crafty Fighter guarantees its user a follow-up attack and reduces the foe's special cooldown charge; the HP required decreases with the skill's tier.
