Flow Guard (Japanese: 怒涛・キャンセル Surging waves · cancel) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Flow Guard 1, Flow Guard 2, and Flow Guard 3 in order from lowest to highest. Flow Guard neutralizes effects that prevent its user from making follow-up attacks and decelerates the foe's special skill cooldown charge with each of the user's strikes; Flow Guard requires the user to initiate combat, and lower tiers require a certain percentage of HP.
