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 known as Sabotage Def 1, Sabotage Def 2, and Sabotage Def 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Sabotage Defense skill who have a Resistance stat 3 points higher than any foe on the field drop the Defense of any foe that meets the initial criteria provided they are adjacent to another foe (whether that foe meets the initial criteria or not); the size of the Defense drop increases with the skill's tier.
