TCG Fire Emblem 0 (Cipher)
Bane is present as a skill on one card in Fire Emblem Cipher: B05-054SR Guardian of Hope, Sothe. It is a trigger skill which comes into play during the opponent's turn when they deploy a new unit, which lets Sothe disrupt the deployment. Sothe's player may pay the deploy cost of the opponent's new unit in order to immediately destroy that unit.
- Bane derives its icon from the Path of Radiance icon for Lethality, which got a different icon from Radiant Dawn onward. It also uses a variant of the Lethality screen flash, colored purple like how Lethality looked in The Sacred Stones.
