Tome (Fire)

First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

Bolganone (Japanese: ボルガノン Bolganone) is a recurring magic tome of considerable power, portrayed as a volcanic eruption striking the target of the spell from beneath their feet. Debuting in Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light as an uncategorized tome, it was Genealogy of the Holy War which defined it as a fire tome. In most of its appearances, it is roughly equivalent in power and esteem to Thoron and Tornado, generally sharing the same weapon level and accordingly acting as a fire counterpart to their wind and thunder roles.
