Seal Defense (Japanese: 守備封じ Seal Defense), shortened to Seal Def in Heroes, is a combat skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. In Fates, it is a class skill associated with the Spear Fighter class; in Heroes, it is a three-tiered type B passive skill (whose individiual tiers are known as Seal Def 1, Seal Def 2, and Seal Def 3 in order from lowest to highest). Seal Defense is a skill that drops an enemy's Defense by a considerable amount at the end of a battle, the size of the drop in Heroes increasing with the skill's tier; in Fates, the effect recovers slowly over a number of turns, whereas in Heroes the drop lasts only until the end of the target's next action.
