Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem

The Chest Key (Japanese: 宝の鍵 Treasure Key) is a fairly common item in the Fire Emblem series, first appearing in Mystery of the Emblem, having appeared in every game from Thracia 776 onward with the exception of Shadow Dragon and Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. It allows any unit to open chests, when normally, only thieves can do so. Their durability and price changes according to the game; the Chest Key has ranged from a single-use item to having 20 uses.
