Watersweep (Japanese: 水薙ぎ Watersweep) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Watersweep 1, Watersweep 2, and Watersweep 3 in order from lowest to highest. When its user initiates combat, Watersweep prevents them from making follow-up attacks, but prevents their foes from counterattacking if the user's speed is sufficiently higher than the foe's; the speed difference required to decreases with the skill's tier.
