Astra (Japanese: 流星 Shooting Star) is a sword skill which debuted in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. When activated, the user deals five consecutive strikes. In most appearances each of the five strikes inflicts the normal amount of damage on the enemy, while others have each strike inflict half the usual damage.

Throughout its existence, Astra has been almost completely associated with sword-wielding units, particularly those of the Myrmidon class family. In Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and Thracia 776, Astra is a personal skill, associated exclusively with members and relatives of the royal family of Isaach. In Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn, Astra is the mastery skill of the Swordmaster and Trueblade classes. In Awakening and Fates, Astra is again learned only by Swordmasters, but can be possessed by units of any class by using a reclassing seal after learning it.
