Smite (Japanese: ぶちかまし Face Strike) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance. It is an enhanced version of the Shove skill available to almost all non-mounted units, performing the same function with double the effectiveness: when used upon command, the user can push a single neighboring unit of any affiliation two spaces away from them, provided they are larger or heavier than the target unit to be pushed. When it returned in Fire Emblem: Three Houses as a Combat art associated with the Heavy Armor skill level, it kept the same effect as in its previous appearances albeit without any restrictions regarding constitution or weight.
