Lck +10. Also known as the Serpent Bow.



First game

Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones

Nidhogg (ニーズヘッグ Nidhogg), the "Serpent Bow", is a holy bow and one of the Sacred Twin weapons of Magvel. This bow and its sister weapon, the winged lance Vidofnir, are the national treasures of the Kingdom of Frelia, and are formidable weapons against monsters used in the antiquity of Magvel to combat Fomortiis the Demon King and his monster legions. Enshrined together with Frelia's Sacred Stone centuries ago in the Tower of Valni, Nidhogg and Vidofnir are entrusted by King Hayden and Prince Innes to Eirika and Ephraim of Renais, for use against the Demon King once more.

Other appearances

Monster Hunter: Frontier G

Two variants of Nidhogg will be present in the Wii U version of Monster Hunter: Frontier G, a massively multiplayer online RPG in Capcom's Monster Hunter franchise, accompanying the Chrom and Lucina armor sets as part of a crossover promotion. The standard brown-colored design from Awakening (referred to as 双聖器ニーズヘッグI Sacred Twin Nidhogg I) accompanies the Chrom armor, while a white-colored variant (蛇弓ニーズヘッグI Serpent Bow Nidhogg I) accompanies the Lucina armor.[1]


  • Nidhogg is the only Sacred Twin weapon available in Fire Emblem: Awakening (not counting Excalibur which, based on its Japanese name, is representing the Archanean variant rather than the Elibe/Magvel variant).
  • Nidhogg and the Double Bow are the only regalia weapons which gives a higher equipping stat bonus in Awakening (+10 Luck in Nidhogg's case) than in its original games (+5 Luck).
