Distant Def (Japanese: 遠距離防御 Long Distance Protection) is a four-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as Distant Def 1, Distant Def 2, Distant Def 3, and Distant Def 4 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Distant Def boost their Defense and, contrary to what the skill's name implies, Resistance when on the defending side of an attack initiated by the wielder of a bow, dagger, red tome, blue tome, green tome, or staff skill; the size of the boosts increases with the skill's tier.
