Sabotage Defense (Japanese: 守備の混乱 Defense Confusion) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Sabotage Def 1, Sabotage Def 2, and Sabotage Def 3 in order from lowest to highest. Sabotage Def reduces the defense of any foe with more resistance than the user and who is adjacent to another enemy; the size of the penalty increases with the skill's tier.
