Attack/Defense Form (Japanese: 攻撃守備の密集 Attack/Defense Close Formation) is a three-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Atk/Def Form 1, Atk/Def Form 2, and Atk/Def Form 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with an Atk/Def Form skill boost their Attack and Defense during combat based on the number of allies the user has within two spaces; the size of the boost increases with the skill's tier.
