Game(s)

Aegis (Japanese: 聖盾 Holy Shield) is a combat skill which debuted in Fire Emblem Awakening. It is a direct counterpart to Pavise as it functions in Awakening and Fates, shielding the user from the full force of attacks from weapon types which are able to attack indirectly, including bows, magic, dragonstones and, in Fates, daggers, breath, and ballistae. Heroes gives Aegis an effect of halving damage dealt by ranged attacks, which continues into Echoes: Shadows of Valentia, but in Echoes it a not direct counterpart to Pavise this time around; unlike most other non-passive skills in Echoes, it is not currently known to be linked to anything.

Other appearances

TCG Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)

Aegis is present as a skill on two cards in Fire Emblem Cipher, both of which feature members of the Paladin class: B01-064HN Red-Eyed Bull, Sully and B01-064HN Green-Eyed Panther, Stahl. It is a Class Change Skill which can only become active if its user has changed class from a base-class card instead of being deployed as these advanced-class cards. If this criteria is fulfilled, then the user cannot be attacked with bow, tome, or dragonstone attacks from enemy units situated in the enemy's Rearguard.
