Defense/Resistance Form (Japanese: 守備魔防の密集 Defense/Resistance Close Formation) is a three-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Def/Res Form 1, Def/Res Form 2, and Def/Res Form 3 in order from lowest to highest. Def/Res Form boosts its user's Defense and Resistance during combat based on the number of allies the user has within two spaces; the size of the boost increases with the skill's tier.
