Defiant Res (Japanese: 魔防の覚醒 Awakening resistance) is a three-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as Defiant Res 1, Defiant Res 2, and Defiant Res 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Defiant Res skill gain a boost to their Resistance stat at the start of the player's turn should the player's HP be less than half of their total; the size of the Resistance boost increases with the skill's tier.

The skill was later introduced to the main series in Three Houses, where it is an ability obtained by mastering the Holy Knight class. It retains a similar effect and use to what it had in Heroes.
