Sacred Defender (セイクリッド・ディフェンダー Seikuriddo Difendā) is a defensive spell used by Vivio Takamachi, making use of her detecting eyes and Sacred Heart's specialization in defense to perform a concentrated defense. Its official spell type is yet to be revealed.

Upon the incoming hit from opponent, defensive mana is concentrated at the hit-point and offensive mana is used to rebound the attack. This instant defence is considered a risky move, despite its toughness which may even free Vivio from all damages if she can fully detect the incoming attack. Mikaya Chevelle comments that it is similar to a pinpoint barrier[1] (like Subaru Nakajima's application of Protection in StrikerS episode 15), although its rebounding effect sounds like a function of shield-type defensive spells.

As explained by Lutecia Alpine, Vivio can fully concentrate her limited mana at the instance of attack or defense. Accel Smash is a (/an example of) concentration at her attacking fist while Sacred Defender is a concentration at the defensing point.[2] Initially Vivio can only use Sacred Defender around her guarding arms, but later she manages to use it elsewhere,[3] such as stomach and head.
