Hear me, O ruler of ancient Altea and true lord of the Seven Realms... I summon thee, Marth, the Hero-King! Come forth and grant us your protection!
— Old Hubba, summoning Prince Marth

Champions of Yore 1 (Japanese: 英霊の魔符1 Heroic Spirit Talisman 1) is a downloadable content xenologue chapter in Fire Emblem Awakening. As a xenologue chapter, it does not officially bear a chapter number; if all xenologues are purchased and its list is viewed at the Outrealm Gate, Champions of Yore 1 is the first one from the top in the North American version of the game. Officially in Japan and unofficially in North America, Champions of Yore 1 is part of the first series of DLC releases, a distinction that does not exist in the PAL regions.

This chapter was first made available on April 19, 2012 in Japan, January 31, 2013 in North America, and April 19-20 in the PAL regions. The dates in Japan and the PAL regions coincide with their respective launch dates of the vanilla Awakening game, while the chapter was made available to North American players five days before their vanilla Awakening launch.

In this chapter, the Shepherds arrive in realms unknown and find themselves having to defend an old man under attack by ten legendary female figures summoned by means stolen from the old man. he Shepherds aren't alone in this defense, as the old man contributes three legendary male figures of his own to the Shepherds' cause.

As Chrom and the Shepherds arrive in a new Outrealm, they are approached by Old Hubba, who asks them to defeat and recollect his Einherjar, and summons three more—Marth, Alm, and Ike—to aid them. Chrom attempts to prevent battle by speaking to the Einherjar army's leader, Princess Eirika of Renais, but she remains undeterred after Hubba describes her as gullible. After defeating the Einherjar, Hubba explains that they are cards that record the spirits of legendary heroes, and can be used to summon a copy of the hero they record. Hubba further explains that the Einherjar were stolen from him by a temptress and asks Chrom's help in retrieving them; after feigning a vision where Chrom's army is successful due to aid of his Einherjar, Chrom agrees, and Hubba awards him with the Prince Marth Einherjar. Marth then converses with Robin and asks them two questions—if they have heard of him, and if they are willing to sacrifice lives for victory—before joining the Shepherds.

Website summary

Chrom and his team find themselves lost in the Outrealm, where they meet an elderly fortuneteller whose magical cards can summon heroic spirits. When Chrom is drawn into battle, the fortuneteller aids him by calling forth a special ally.[1]

  • This is one of only two DLC chapters where the on-field unit representing the unlockable DLC bonus unit is a green NPC as opposed to a red enemy, the other being Rogues & Redeemers 1.
  • The North American official Awakening website labels the launch date of this chapter as February 4, 2013, the same date as the official launch of the vanilla Awakening game in that region. This contradicts the in-game shop's listing for the chapter, which correctly lists its launch as January 31, 2013 in line with North American 3DS eShop practices.
  • This chapter is one of only two DLC chapters that are the first to be released within their three-chapter packs to not be released in conjunction with the third chapter of another pack in the North American region (the other being Lost Bloodlines 1).
