Defiant Attack (Japanese: 攻撃の覚醒 Attack Awakening) is a three-tiered passive type A skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are Defiant Atk 1, Defiant Atk 2, and Defiant Atk 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Defiant Atk skill gain a boost to their Attack stat at the start of the player's turn should the player's HP be less than half of their total; the size of the Attack boost increases with the skill's tier.
