Defense Cantrip (Japanese: 守備の魅了 Defense Bewitchment) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Def Cantrip 1, Def Cantrip 2, and Def Cantrip 3 in order from lowest to highest. Def Cantrip reduces the defense of the nearest enemies when its user uses a performance skill; the size of the penalty increases with the skill's tier.
