Artwork of a steel lance from the Fire Emblem Trading Card Game.

A weighty but more powerful lance.



First game

Fire Emblem Gaiden

The Steel Lance is one of the most common lances in the Fire Emblem series, first appearing in Gaiden and appearing in every game since. When compared to the iron and silver versions of this weapon, the steel lance is usually stronger than the iron and has more uses than the silver, but its usefulness may be diminished by its low accuracy and heavy weight.
