Razor-sharp cat claws. They never wear out and cannot be unequipped or dropped.



First game

Fire Emblem: Path of Radiance

The Claw (Japanese: Nail) is a strike appearing in both games of the Fire Emblem series taking place on Tellius. In its first appearance, Path of Radiance, it is the means of attack for cats, tigers, and lions. In Radiant Dawn, only cats wield claws (tigers and lions in Radiant Dawn wield fangs instead), however cats can make their claws stronger over time thanks to strikes having a weapon level in that game.
