Defense Opening (Japanese: 守備の開放 Defense Opening) is a three-tiered passive type C skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as Def Opening 1, Def Opening 2, and Def Opening 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Def Opening skill takes the unit on the field other than the user with the highest Defense and further boosts their Defense for the turn at the start of the user's phase; the size of the Defense boost increases with the skill's tier.
