Generic portrait bonewalker fe08.gif

Dead warriors given will by dark magic. They wield a variety of weapons.


Sword, Lance, Bow (The Sacred Stones only)



The Bonewalker (Japanese: スケルトン Skeleton) class is one of the monster classes that appear in Fire Emblem Gaiden and Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones. In both games, they are an enemy-exclusive class. Their help description states they are created from warriors that fell in battle.

In Gaiden, bonewalkers only use monster weapons, but in The Sacred Stones can use either swords and lances or just bows. There are actually two Bonewalker classes. One type uses swords and lances, and the other type uses only bows. Sometimes, they drop valuable weapons.

Presumably, in Gaiden, they change class to liches, and in The Sacred Stones, they change class to wights. Their class change details are unknown, because they are an enemy-only class.
