|Icon of the Beast Killer from Awakening.|
Effective against beasts and riders.
The Beast Killer (Japanese: ビーストキラー Beast Killer) is a weapon which at different points in the Fire Emblem series has been a knife and a lance. In all cases, it is effective against the game in question's beast-type units; as a knife in Radiant Dawn, it is effective against transformed beast-type laguz, while as a lance in Awakening and Fates it is effective against Taguel, other beast units, and units mounted on horses, pegasi or griffons.
- This list may be incomplete.
- The Beast Killer is one of the few bonus damage-dealing weapons that kept the word "Killer" in the name when localized from Japanese to English. This is shared with Path of Radiance's Knight Killer. (Note that the Shadowkiller's name did not fit the pattern in Japanese.)
