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.
