Speedtaker (Japanese: 速さの吸収 Speed Drain) is a skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. Taught by a skill item and also associated with Lodestars, every time the unit defeats an enemy, they get a +2 bonus to their Speed for the rest of the chapter. There is a limit the bonus can reach, and it does not overlap with another -⁠taker skill. In Fire Emblem Engage, it appears as an inheritable Sync skill associated with Emblen Lyn. In Fire Emblem Warriors: Three Hopes, it is called Absorb Speed, and only activates upon defeating an enemy commander.
