Game(s)

Deflect Melee (Japanese: 連撃防御・剣槍斧 Consecutive Attack Defense ・ Sword Lance Axe) is a Sacred Seal skill, which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes. It exists in a three-tiered form, with the tiers respectively being named Deflect Melee 1, Deflect Melee 2, and Deflect Melee 3. A unit with this seal equipped will, if taking consecutive hits from an enemy wielding either a sword, lance, or axe, suffer reduced damage from the second consecutive hit onwards; the degree of this reduction is based on the skill's tier. This seal can only be equipped by units who wield melee weapons–swords, axes, lances, and breaths.

To obtain the Deflect Melee 1 seal, players must create it via the Sacred Seal Forge, making it one of three seals which can only be obtained in this fashion (the others being its siblings Deflect Magic and Deflect Missile). The seal's upper two tiers may also be obtained via forging.

The effect of this skill cannot stack with other skills that provide similar effects, such as Urvan.
