The Witch (Japanese: 魔女 Witch) is a magical class which originated in Fire Emblem Gaiden. In addition to possessing formidable prowess as an offensive magical class with their high magic stats, Witches are the only class to possess the infamous Teleportation skill, which allows them to teleport themselves somewhere else on the map before, in Gaiden at least, continuing on to perform another action. In Gaiden, this ability effectively gives them infinite movement, as their self-warping ability has unlimited range.

The Witch class is exclusive to female units. In Gaiden, it is an enemy-exclusive variant of the Mage class, and while there are two recruitable Witches, Sonya and Delthea, both their classes change to Mage upon recruitment. In Fates, Witches return as a playable class, and any female unit is able to reclass to witch by using a Witch's Mark item, which is obtained from the DLC chapter Witches' Trial.

  • In Gaiden, Witches use the same battle and map sprites as female Mages.
  • While most Witches in Echoes: Shadows of Valentia have access to the Teleportation skill, it actually appears as a personal skill, rather than a class skill, and certain Witches, such as Marla and Hestia, lack the skill. This is further proven as if a player edits the game to make their characters Witches, the skill won't appear.
