Game(s)

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 and Three Houses; 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 and Three Houses, it appears as a combat art. In Echoes, it is linked to the Iron Sword in the base game as well as Fernand's Lance via DLC, while in Three Houses it is learned by raising the Sword skill level of certain units. It grants its user a small critical rate boost while also negating any counter-attacks dealt against its user.
