Darting Blow (Japanese: 飛燕の一撃 Swallow Strike) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. In Fates, it is a class skill associated with the Sky Knight class; in Heroes, it is a three-tiered type A passive skill (whose individiual tiers are known as Darting Blow 1, Darting Blow 2, and Darting Blow 3 in order from lowest to highest). In Fates, Darting Blow is a skill that gives a boost to its user's attack speed whenever its user initiates an attack, giving them a better chance of follow-up attacking; in Heroes, the skill boosts the user's Speed whenever the user initiates the battle, the size of the boost increasing with the skill's tier.
