Sword

First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Levin Sword (Japanese: サンダーソード Thunder Sword) is a recurring magic sword introduced in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light, and the first of its kind in the Fire Emblem series. In all appearances, it is capable of attacking both at close range and over a distance, using thunder magic to do so. Since Genealogy of the Holy War it deals magical damage to foes, using the wielder's magic stat instead of their strength to calculate damage, and targets the foe's resistance stat instead of their defense. Depending on the individual game, it may have other effects.

Other appearances

Robin wielding the Levin Sword in Super Smash Bros. for Wii U. Behind her, a broken Levin Sword which she discarded earlier is being held by Marth.

Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U

Robin wields the Awakening version of the Levin Sword in Super Smash Bros. for Nintendo 3DS and Wii U. They use it for physical smash attacks and aerial attacks, instead of the Bronze Sword which they use for their other physical attacks. Attacks with the Levin Sword are stronger than those with the Bronze Sword, have greater reach and have an electrical effect which very briefly stuns the target.

Like Robin's tome special moves, the Levin Sword is affected by an emulation of the Fire Emblem durability system, and so can only be used eight times before it breaks and cannot be used again. Robin must then wait out a six-second recharge period before it becomes usable again. While waiting for it to recharge, the Bronze Sword temporarily replaces it in Robin's smash and aerial attacks, dealing less damage.[1] As with their tomes, Robin throws away their broken Levin Swords, and either Robin themself or any other character can catch it before it hits the ground, then throw the sword at their enemies to cause decent damage.
