Is gba aircalibur.png
Icon of Aircalibur from The Binding Blade.

Effective against fliers.



First game

Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade

Aircalibur (Japanese: エイルカリバー Aircalibur) is an uncommon anima tome which, in legitimate gameplay, is exclusive to Fire Emblem: The Binding Blade. It is a lightweight and fairly accurate tome, whose main feature is its effectiveness against flying units.

Although only legitimately avaiable in The Binding Blade, an unfinished version of the spell can be found unused in the data of Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, known as Alacalibur in English and other non-Japanese versions.

Unused If hacked into the game, it is usable by any unit with a B rank in anima magic.

Other appearances

TCG Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)

Aircalibur is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B05-025R Child of Anima, Lugh. It is a manual-activation skill which, for a cost of flipping 1 bond card, adds the common "Flier Slayer" skill to Lugh until the end of the turn, temporarily giving him an effective bonus of +30 to his attack power when fighting flying-type cards.


  • The unfinished version of Alacalibur from The Sacred Stones lacks its own icon, using the Killer Ballista icon as a placeholder. When cast, it cuts off the battle music (if enabled) and has no sound effects associated with it, though sound effects associated with the caster or the impact with the enemy will still play.
