Defense is one of three defensive stat of a character, alongside Speed and Resistance. It lowers the damage of physical attacks and can, if it is high enough, even nullify it. As such its corresponding offensive stat would be Attack. Most melee units have good to very high Defense stats, making them good physical tanks.
