Genealogy of the Holy War

Canto (Japanese: 再移動 Move Again), known as move again in The Blazing Blade[1] and Canter in Engage, is a field skill which technically debuted in Fire Emblem: Genealogy of the Holy War as a hidden skill; it was not until Fire Emblem: Radiant Dawn that it became a visible skill and gained a proper name.

In all its appearances before Engage, it is a skill exclusive to mounted and/or flying units. After such a unit moves and completes an action, if they have not used up their full movement range in that one go, it allows the user to move again and use up any leftover movement distance. In Radiant Dawn, and technically all of its non-Engage appearances, the skill is locked and cannot be removed from units possessing it under any circumstances.

In Engage, Canter appears as a skill with two tiers, and for the first time is not tied to a class, but instead to Sigurd's Emblem Ring. It is acquired by either equipping the ring or inheriting it from him. Thus, it can be used by anyone regardless of class, and mounted classes in Engage do not have access to it by default. Additionally, it no longer involves the user's leftover movement range, and now simply allows the user to move two or three extra spaces after acting, depending on the skill's tier.

Canto is present as a skill on three cards in Fire Emblem Cipher, all of which are members of mounted classes: B03-097HN Paladin Astride a Stubborn Steed, Sophie, B06-018HN Shining Flame of Kindness, Azelle, and B06-038R Blizzard Flier, Erinys. It automatically triggers after its user performs an attack, and gives the player the option of also moving them to a different row.

  • The text that appears in Fire Emblem: Three Houses when Canto activates says "Move Again", which is this skill's Japanese name.
  • In the Game Boy Advance games, the remaining movement a unit has for Canto is determined as if they took the most efficient path to their tile, even if the path the player drew was less efficient; in Three Houses, the remaining movement for Canto is calculated using the path drawn, not the most efficient path possible.[what about Tellius games?]

Etymology and other languages

Names, etymology, and in other regions
Language Name Definition, etymology, and notes

• Canto
• Move Again
• Canter

• Italian, Spanish, Portuguese: singing, chanting. This name is used in Radiant Dawn and Three Houses. As it shares its name with the Canto skill from Path of Radiance, Canto may have gotten its name from being confused with it, since that Canto's Japanese name (Japanese: 再行動 act again) is very similar to this Canto's Japanese name.
• Explicitly used as the name of the ability in The Blazing Blade,[1] and also used (though only as a verb) in The Sacred Stones.[2]
• This name is used in Engage. A canter is a medium-speed gait used by horses. It is faster than a trot, but slower than a gallop, which is the fastest gait. The name may have been chosen due to its similarity to the previous name "Canto".



Used in some older fan material.

Traditional Chinese


Move again



  1. 1.0 1.1 "Furthermore, mounted units have the unique ability to move again. Essentially, this allows cavalry to move the number of spaces left in their movement range if they haven't done so already. However, the attack command, among others, nullifies the move again ability, so be careful." — Tutorial pop-up window, Fire Emblem: The Blazing Blade
  2. "Mounted units can move again after visiting homes or villages if they have movement remaining. This is most common among cavaliers and pegasus knights." — "Moving Again" guide, Fire Emblem: The Sacred Stones
