Unit type(s)





Shove (Radiant Dawn)

The Armored Lance or Lance Armor (Japanese: ランスアーマー Lance Armor) is a basic armored class debuting in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776. It is one of four weapon-specific variations of the Knight, specializing in the use of lances, and appears only in Thracia 776, Radiant Dawn, and Engage; in Genealogy of the Holy War, the Knight class itself filled its role as the basic lance-wielding armored class. It is statistically near-identical to its counterparts, the Armored Axe, Armored Sword and Bow Armor.

It is not playable in either of its appearances, and as such is not tied to a class change line; in Radiant Dawn, the lance-specific Lance General would be its hypothetical class-changed form and does have two playable members.

Language Name Definition, etymology, and notes

• Armored Lance
• Lance Armor

• In gameplay, for space restrictions the name is shortened to "Armr Lance". Used in Radiant Dawn.
• Used in Engage.


Lance Armor, Armor Knight

Both used in the Thracia 776 fan translation.[which?]



• Lance Armor; this name is used in Thracia 776 and Engage.
• Officially romanized as Lance Armor; literally "lance heavy knight". In Radiant Dawn, all Japanese class names are spelled primarily in kanji (i.e. 槍重装兵), with a foreign-language name in katakana applied as furigana (i.e. ランスアーマー) and used as the basis for the romanized name in the class roll.
