Iote's Shield (アイオテの盾 Aiote no Tate) is a skill introduced in Fire Emblem Awakening that negates flying unit weaknesses. It is a DLC exclusive skill, and is learned by using the Iote's Shield item.

As with all skills obtained through downloadable content, this cannot be passed on to any children characters from the parents. (However, the character can simply use the corresponding item to obtain the skill anyway.)

It is also a type A passive skill in Fire Emblem Heroes. It allows characters who would otherwise have a weakness towards flier-effective attacks (notably bows and Merric's Excalibur tome) to gain neutral damage. It has counterparts in the forms of Grani's Shield and Svalinn Shield. It is learned by Michalis. There is also a Sacred Seal version of the Skill which can be equipped to any Flying unit.
