Distant Counter (Melee) (abbreviated Dist. Counter (M); Japanese: 遠反・剣槍斧専用 Distant counter · sword, lance, axe exclusive) is a Sacred Seal skill that debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; it comes in only one tier. Dist. Counter (M) provides the same effect as Distant Counter—users are able to counterattack regardless of the range between them and their foe—but it can only be equipped by units with swords, lances, or axes.
