Wary Fighter (Japanese: 守備隊形 Defensive Formation) is a combat skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Fates. In Fates, it is a class skill associated with the General class; in Heroes, it is a three-tiered type B passive skill (whose individiual tiers are known as Wary Fighter 1, Wary Fighter 2, and Wary Fighter 3 in order from lowest to highest). Wary Fighter is a skill that disallows the enemy from being able to follow-up attack, at the cost of the same being true for the user. In Fates, this effect is always active, but in Heroes, the effect only takes effect should the user's HP be above a certain threshold; this threshold increases with the skill's tier.
