Defense/Resistance Smoke (Japanese: 守備魔防の紫煙 Defense/Resistance purple smoke) is a passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it has only one tier: Def/Res Smoke 3. Def/Res Smoke 3 drops the defense and resistance of all foes within two spaces of the user after combat, boosts the attack of nearby allies, and allows allies to move through the user's space at no cost.

Game Text
After combat, inflicts Def/Res-7 on target and
foes within 2 spaces of target through their
next actions, grants Atk+6 to unit and allies
within 2 spaces of unit for 1 turn, and grants
【Pathfinder】to unit for 1 turn.

When an ally moves through unit's space, that
space is counted as 0 spaces moved instead of
1 space. (Unit's space can be freely added to
ally's normal movement. Applies only to allies
with movement types that allow movement
through unit's space.)
