Savvy Fighter (Japanese: 慧眼隊形 insightful formation) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Savvy Fighter 1, Savvy Fighter 2, and Savvy Fighter 3 in order from lowest to highest. When a foe initiates combat, Savvy Fighter neutralizes effects guaranteeing the foe or denying the user a follow-up strike, and also reduces the damage from the foe's first strike if the user's Speed is higher than the foe's; higher tiers of Savvy Fighter require less speed to reduce damage, and reduce damage by greater amounts.
