The Arch Sage or Archsage (Japanese: 大賢者アークセイジ Arch Sage) is an advanced magical class which debuted in Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade. Acting as an even more advanced form of the Sage and related classes, Archsages are masters of multiple magical disciplines with high stats. In its original appearance in Fire Emblem, the Archsage is the exclusive class of Athos of the Eight Legends, in his brief playable role in the Final Chapter. In Radiant Dawn, the Arch Sage is the third-tier promoted form of the game's four element-specific Sage variants: the Fire Sage, Thunder Sage, Wind Sage and Dark Sage.

Arch Sages have access to a broad spectrum of magic, typically featuring multiple types of offensive magic with an emphasis on anima magic alongside healing staves. Fire Emblem Archsages wield all four magic categories - anima, light, dark and staves, while the Arch Sages of Radiant Dawn primarily wield all three anima magic types. The Radiant Dawn Arch Sage is technically four separate classes which have minor variations in stat builds and usable weapons; in addition to the three anima-specialist versions, the dark variant exclusive to Pelleas wields only thunder magic, dark magic and staves, and also has higher proficiency in staves than the anima variants.

In all cases, Arch Sages specialize in pure magical offense, as the various Sage classes do. Their magical power, skill and speed all remain high, giving them potent, accurate and quick offensive abilities. However, they share the traditional weak HP and defense of most magical classes, although their resistance is respectable.
