This article is about the weapon type appearing in Mystery of the Emblem, Awakening, Fates, and Heroes. For the strike weapon from the Tellius games, see Breath (laguz).

Breath (Japanese: ブレス breath) is a weapon classification encompassing various breath-related attacks used by dragons. In most games, breath does not appear as a distinct weapon type; however, it does appear as such in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem, Awakening, Fates, and Heroes. While every breath weapon has a weapon level of 1 in Mystery of the Emblem, it had no weapon level in games using the lettered weapon level system until Fates.

Breaths as distinct weapons first appeared in Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem when dragons not linked to Manakete stones first appeared in the series; apart from two chapters (and one character in each) eleven games later, that game is still the only one in the main Fire Emblem series where breath weapons are directly usable by the player by legitimate means due to the effects of Manakete stones in that game. Breath weapons have appeared off and on in the series since, usually by powerful dragon-type enemy units. In Heroes, however, they appear as the attack skills wielded by all dragon units, and, owing to the nature of the game, all dragon units can appear as both player and enemy units.

Despite its name, Breath in Path of Radiance and Radiant Dawn does not fall into this classification; it is instead considered a strike due to its status as a laguz weapon. Similarly, Fire Breath and Water Breath in Fire Emblem Echoes: Shadows of Valentia are classified as monster weapons.

Breath skills in Fire Emblem Heroes


This section has been marked as a stub. Please help improve the page by adding information.


Breath weapons appear in Fire Emblem Heroes as the attack skills used by all dragon units appearing in the game. Unlike other weapon types in Heroes, breath skills are not strictly associated with any color in the game's weapon triangle, and may be used by any unit capable of using breath skills; their placement on the weapon triangle is instead determined by the unit using them.

Red, blue, and green breath have been part of the game since its initial launch; colorless breath is notably the first new weapon type added to the game that was not present at its initial launch, being introduced to the game in the The True Quarry update.
