Defense/Resistance Link (Japanese: 守備魔防の連携 Defense/Resistance Cooperation) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as Def/Res Link 1, Def/Res Link 2, and Def/Res Link 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Def/Res Link skill, when the user is involved in a two-unit movement-based assist skill, boost the Defense and Resistance of both the user and the other party involved; the size of the Defense and Resistance boosts are affected by the skill's tier.
