Anankos (Japanese: 透魔竜ハイドラ Invisible Dragon Hydra) is the endgame of the Revelation campaign in Fire Emblem Fates. In this chapter, Corrin challenges Anankos to bring peace to the world once and for all.

It is not possible to save the game, read supports, or return to My Castle during this chapter; the previous chapter and this one must be completed consecutively.


Main article: Anankos (chapter)/Script

Anankos reveals his full body in the astral void, to the horror of Corrin's army. Xander remarks on their situation to Ryoma: the princes of two kingdoms, bitter rivals, spending their last moments together. After Azura doubts their plight, Corrin rallies his/her army to believe in themselves. Invoking the Fire Emblem, Corrin declares he/she will fight for the world.

With Anankos finally slain, the royals all celebrate, and Azura thanks Corrin for fighting alongside her. Later on, Corrin is crowned the king/queen of Valla, and he/she thanks Xander and Ryoma, now kings themselves, for offering land upon which to rebuild the kingdom. He/She pledges to work for the betterment of the kingdom and to believe in its people, with his/her brothers and sisters all encouraging and congratulating him/her. Gunter, who watched the coronation from afar, makes his exit.

Some time after the coronation, Corrin meets Azura by the lake where he/she first met her. Corrin asks if she's fine with relinquishing her rightful place as ruler of Valla to him/her, to which she replies that she is happy with her decision, stating that the Yato believes in Corrin. Corrin promises to make Arete and the former king of Valla proud, and Azura sings for him/her. The two then discuss the origin of the song, with Azura guessing that Anankos was its author, writing it for the ones who would free him from his insanity through death. Azura suggests that Corrin could be the one to write the song's next part. The two return to the party to see Xander and Ryoma vow to keep peace between Nohr and Hoshido, swearing this to Corrin himself/herself.

This section details unofficial strategies that may help with completion of the chapter. This may not work for everybody.

This is the final chapter of Fire Emblem Fates: Revelation, and you cannot save your progress after this chapter; thus, no changes to your army or inventory can be carried over. If you have been saving rare and valuable items like stat boosters, status staves, and the Bifröst for a rainy day, it's time to take out your umbrella.

As the final boss of Revelation, Anankos is incredibly durable and highly damaging. He cannot double attack, but very few, if any units will be able to survive two consecutive attacks from him without healing in between. The best way to avoid taking too much damage from him is by using Pair Up and preparing a Dual Guard, which will allow a unit to survive two consecutive rounds of combat against him by virtue of simply blocking one attack altogether. The presence of infinite reinforcements can actually be a blessing here, as they can be safely attacked to build up your Dual Guard guage, and do not spawn frequently enough to be particularly dangerous. If a Dual Guard is somehow not quite in reach, be sure to keep a healer with Physic ready to heal them while staying out of Anankos's range.

In general, Corrin will likely be the main workhorse during this fight thanks to the sheer power the Omega Yato has against Anankos. With each passing phase, Anankos gets progressively bulkier and faster; before applying the Omega Yato's bonuses, Corrin will need to reach 20/22 speed to double his claws, 24/26 to double his head, and 29/31 to double all of Anankos's phases. Tonics, rallies, and Azura's Inspiring Song can help Corrin reach these speeds should they not be quite up to snuff.

Once his head has been defeated and his core has been revealed, approaching Anankos becomes somewhat trickier. His new breath has more range and, though less powerful in terms of raw might, will likely do even more damage due to being a magic attack. Units with high resistance such as Kaze and Shura may be able to safely put some work into him alongside Corrin.

While not at all necessary, if the player feels like investing, Replicate can be a very effective and fun skill in dealing with Anankos, as it can allow one copy of Corrin to fight Anankos at all times, while the other one can stay behind to be healed, which will in turn heal the other copy.


  • This chapter is one of few chapters in the game where the preparations theme doesn't play during that phase of setup. In this case, the music from the preceding cutscene continues onto the battle preparations screen.
  • This is the only endgame chapter in Fates not named after a lyric of Lost in Thoughts All Alone.
