Savage Blow (Japanese: 死の吐息 Deadly Breath) is a combat skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. In Fates, it is a class skill learned by members of the Malig Knight class; in Heroes, it is a three-tiered type C passive skill (whose individiual tiers are known as Savage Blow 1, Savage Blow 2, and Savage Blow 3 in order from lowest to highest). It allows its user to deal sizable damage to all enemies within their vicinity after an attack, if they are the ones who initiated that attack; in Heroes, the damage dealt increases with the skill's tier.
