Defense/Resistance Catch (Japanese: 守備魔防の機先 Defense/Resistance Delay) is a four-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Def/Res Catch 1, Def/Res Catch 2, Def/Res Catch 3, and Def/Res Catch 4 in order from lowest to highest. Def/Res Catch boost its user's Defense and Resistance during combat whenever its target has full HP or any active penalties on it; the size of the boosts increase with the skill's tier, with the fourth tier providing an even larger boost if both potential activation criteria are active at once.
