The Lord (ロード) is the class of most of the main characters of the Fire Emblem series and is perhaps the most important class in terms of completing most chapter objectives, generally defined as a a young member of a noble family and the son/daughter of the head of the noble family in question, either a prince/princess or the child of a duke or similar. "Lord" is treated as a unisex class name, applied equally to female characters (Lyn, Eirika) as it does to males, and is generally used regardless of whether "Lord" would be the character's actual title, as a prince or princess would not be addressed as "lord" and are typically not in dialogue in such instances. The only instances where "lord" would be the correct form of address for a Lord character are Roy, Eliwood[1] and Hector (and Sigurd and Seliph, but neither are of this class).

In gameplay, the Lord's function is somewhat similar to that of the king in a game of chess: they are the leader of the army, and to be defeated in battle is to fail the chapter and get a game over. Conversely, Lords (or Lord-like units) are the only characters with the ability to seize thrones and gates and complete chapters with such objectives, and typically are the wielders of powerful weapons required to successfully combat final bosses. The general statistical build of a Lord varies depending on the game and character in question, but as a rule they are well-rounded in their stats other than the individual's obvious strongest field; they also typically possess higher luck than most others, and mostly share the rather low resistance endemic to non-magic units. Characterised as being inexperienced yet having great potential, their stats will almost always start off somewhat low, but with their typical high growth rates will improve very quickly and become highly potent fighters. The majority of Lords wield only swords, but occasionally Lords wielding non-sword weapons appear, like Hector (axes) and Ephraim (lances).

In all but one appearance, the Lord is a basic class - the exception is Path of Radiance, where Ike's base class is Ranger and he promotes to Lord, symbolic of him being knighted and joining the nobility. Typically, a Lord's class change is unique to it, if not in name then in appearance and stat build. The most common promoted Lord classes are the Master Lord, for Roy in The Binding Blade, and the Great Lord, for Hector in Blazing Sword, Eirika and Ephraim in The Sacred Stones, and Chrom and Lucina in Awakening. Also in Blazing Sword, both Eliwood and Lyn have unique promoted classes - Eliwood promotes to Knight Lord, while Lyn promotes to Blade Lord. As Thracia 776 is an interquel to its predecessor set in the time before Leif joins Seliph's army, Leif's promoted class there is Prince, his base class in Seisen. In his four appearances in the Archanea tetralogy, Marth does not promote; in the two Nintendo DS remakes, Shadow Dragon and New Mystery of the Emblem, his level cap is instead increased to level 30 as compensation.

Three games do not feature the Lord class: Gaiden, Genealogy of the Holy War and Radiant Dawn. All three instead give their lead characters classes which are the Lord in all but name, sometimes with some alternative utility; such classes are colloquially called "Lord-like" or generically also called "Lords". The classes for the Gaiden heroes, Alm and Celica, are Fighter and Priest respectively. Seliph's class in Genealogy of the Holy War is Junior Lord, literally a conventional Lord with a slightly different name. Micaiah of Radiant Dawn is a Light Mage; in his reappearance, Ike starts off as a Hero, ostensibly a promoted class, and throughout the game several other characters all act as the Lord character of at least one chapter, and almost all have conventional classes.
