The Riposte keyword allows a monster to damage it's attacker while defending. If the attacker misses, the monster with Riposte will take over the attack instead.

Ability text: Riposte: Each time an adjacent figure resolves an attack that affects this monster, that figure suffers Heart equal to the defense results; if the attack is a miss, the figure suffers Heart equal to the Heart rolled instead.
