First game

Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light

The Bridge Key (Japanese: はね橋のカギ Bridge Key) is a key-type item introduced in Fire Emblem: Shadow Dragon and the Blade of Light. It can be used once by any unit to unlock and release drawbridges, in order to allow units to cross the bridge; without using a Bridge Key, only Thieves can otherwise unlock drawbridges.
