Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War

The Brave Lance (Japanese: 勇者の槍 Brave Lance) is a lance introduced in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War and present in all subsequent installments apart from Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It is one of the four core brave weapons of the Fire Emblem series, and like the others it allows its wielder to strike their foe twice as many times as they otherwise would. The Brave Lance is primarily associated with two notable wielders: Finn, a knight of Leonster, and Geoffrey, a knight of Crimea; in Fire Emblem: Thracia 776, it is Finn's personal weapon.
