First game

Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Meisterschwert (Japanese: マスターソード Master Sword) is a rare sword-type found in the Fire Emblem series. In its original appearance in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, and again in the DS remake of its second book, it is basically a stronger variation of the Killing Edge. In its only other appearance in Thracia 776, it instead acts as a brave weapon, allowing the unit to double the number of attacks per turn; however, it lacks the extended durability of the similar Brave Sword, which also has a better weight, higher might and even a lower weapon level, although it does have a higher critical rate than the Brave Sword. Its appearance in Heroes is based on its Thracia 776 version; here, it is the personal weapon of the "Thunder's Sword" variant of Reinhardt.

Language Name Definition, etymology and notes
English Meisterschwert German for "master sword". Presumably used to connect with the German names used for the knight brigades of Grannvale; Reinhardt is a general of the Gelb Ritter of Friege. Alternatively, it may be to differentiate it from the sword from The Legend of Zelda: A Link to the Past and other Zelda games.
