DEF (abbreviated for Defense) is a recurring parameter status for each character's immunity against physical attacks in the Trails gameplay. It is paramount to each character's toughness to reduce all physical damage in mortal combat.

Defense is compared against Strength to regulate how much damage is reduced.


  • Can be increased with armor, shoes, and accessories.
  • Equipping DEF or other Earth Quartzes.
  • Using Arts like Crest or Earth Guard
  • Reduced by "Status Down" abnormal statuses
  • Enhanced by "Status Up" abnormal statuses, and food dishes


  • While "Physical Immunity" differs the gap between defense parameters, its the ultimate defense where no damage occurs.
