Deadly Balance (Japanese: 死者の帳尻を To Balance the Cohort of the Dead) is a passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; Deadly Balance comes in only one tier. Deadly Balance is a skill that activates whenever its user either has sufficiently high health or a negative status effect in place, and drops its target's Attack and Defense during combat while also slowing down its target's special skill cooldown count.
