Quick Riposte (Japanese: 切り返し Comeback Cutter) is a three-tiered passive type B skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Heroes; the individual tiers of the skill are known as Quick Riposte 1, Quick Riposte 2, and Quick Riposte 3 in order from lowest to highest. Units with a Quick Riposte skill will automatically perform a follow-up attack should their HP be above a certain threshold; the percentage of total HP required to activate the skill decreases with the skill's tier.

The skill was later introduced to the main series in Three Houses, where it is an ability obtained by mastering the War Master class. It retains the same effect and use it had in Heroes.
