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