Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

The Berserk (Japanese: バサーク Berserk) is a rare staff in the Fire Emblem series. It is one of the three "status staves" capable of inflicting status conditions against enemies, in this case Berserk as the name implies.

The Berserk staff appears in all games that feature the Berserk condition--namely having debuted in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War. Unlike its sister staves, Sleep and Silence, its most recent actually-used appearance is in Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones, going unused in Path of Radiance and not appearing in the game code at all in Radiant Dawn.
