Flash Sparrow (Japanese: 鬼神飛燕の柔撃 Fierce god flying sparrow soft strike) is a passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; Flash Sparrow comes in only one tier. Flash Sparrow is similar to a fourth-tier equivalent of Swift Sparrow, in that it boosts its user's attack and speed during combat they initiate while also healing them whenever triggering a damage-dealing special skill based on the special skill's maximum cooldown count.
