Windsweep (Japanese: 風薙ぎ Windsweep) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes, later appearing in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia; in Heroes, the individual tiers of the skill are known as Windsweep 1, Windsweep 2, and Windsweep 3 in order from lowest to highest. In Heroes, units with a Windsweep skill will not perform a follow-up attack and, should their Speed be above a certain figure higher than a target wielding a sword, lance, axe, bow, or dagger skill, will also stop the target's counter-attack; the Speed difference threshold required to stop the target's counter-attack decreases with the skill's tier. In Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, it is a combat art linked to the Iron Sword in the base game as well as Fernand's Lance via DLC, which grants its user a small critical rate boost while also negating any counter-attacks dealt against its user.
