Speed/Defense Solo (Japanese: 速さ守備の孤軍 Speed/Defense Lone Force) is a four-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Spd/Def Solo 1, Spd/Def Solo 2, Spd/Def Solo 3, and Spd/Def Solo 4 in order from lowest to highest. Spd/Def Solo boosts its user's speed and defense when they are not adjacent to any allies; the size of the boosts increases with the skill's tier.
