Speed/Defense Tempo (Japanese: 速さ守備の拍節 Speed/Defense rhythm) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Spd/Def Tempo 1, Spd/Def Tempo 2, and Spd/Def Tempo 3 in order from lowest to highest. Spd/Def Tempo drops a foe's Speed and Defense during combat and neutralizes effects affecting both units' special skill cooldown counts in certain directions; it is currently unknown how this skill's tier affects the effect.
