Passive (Type C)

First game


Darkling Dragon (Japanese: 闇の樹海の竜神 Dragon god of the dark sea of trees) is a passive type C skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; Darkling Dragon comes in only one tier. If they start their turn near any allies, Darkling Dragon boosts the defense and resistance of and prevents enemies from warping near the user and either their nearby support partners or allies with highest defense; additionally, when near allies, it reduces the foe's special cooldown charge, reduces the potency of damage-reducing effects, and triggers Savior against 2-range weapons.

At start of turn, grants +6 each to defense and resistance and Warp Bubble to any support partners—or if unit is on team without support partner, to allies with highest defense—within 2 spaces of user for 1 turn.
If user is within 2 spaces of an ally, inflicts −1 special cooldown charge on foe per attack during combat, and reduce percentage of foe's non-special "reduce damage by X%" skills by 50% during combat (excluding area-of-effect specials).
If foe uses bow; dagger; red, blue, green, or colorless tome; or staff and initiates combat against ally within 2 spaces of user, triggers Savior (Unit takes ally's space, enters combat in ally's place, and receives all after-combat effects. Will not trigger if unit cannot traverse ally's space, or multiple units can trigger Savior for same combat. If triggered, after-combat movement effects do not occur.) on user; when Savior triggers, grants +4 each to attack, defense, and resistance to user during combat.
