Fire Emblem: Mystery of the Emblem


Saint Archanea is the largest country on the continent. Its golden capital of Millennium Court has bathed in 600 years of proud history. Under the attack of Altea's allied army, it fell in just one day. The citizens of Archanea welcomed them as liberators, and supported them to their fullest. They also mentioned of their hatred towards Hardin and his personal guards. Everybody now calls Hardin the Dark Emperor. This was in hatred of Hardin, the murderer of countless people. If possible fighting would be avoided, but it as already reached this stage... Marth raises Anri's flag up high, and orders his last command. Go, heroes of Altea! This is the final battle. Everybody, charge into Millennium Court!!
— Chapter 20 Intro

At preparations

Jagen: Your highness, we've entered the castle! But don't forget that Hardin is being protected by the Darksphere. To fight him , you must have the Lightsphere!! Be sure to let the person fighting him carry it.


(A thief opens the main door)
Hardin: Midia, even you betrayed me. Archanea's paladins have lost their touch.
Midia: You fool!! Don't you see it? What you're doing isn't normal. Where did you take Nyna to? Bring her back to us now!!
Hardin: Nyna! That woman betrayed me. I just wanted to destroy Grust. And she had to go and give the Emblem to that boy... Those who betray me must die. Midia, you're no exception!!
Midia: If you want to take my life, go ahead. But Hardin... Do you know how much suffering you've caused because of your stupid jealousy? Just open your eyes and see!
Hardin: Stupid jealousy...? Haha... You can say what you like. This world is corrupt and full of annoying people. Is this kind of world even worth anything? It would be far better for it to be destroyed. Midia, you shall watch here... As Prince Marth dies by hand!!
(The thief enters the palace)

Upon approaching the throne room

Hardin: Marth...? As a servant of the Empire, you dared to invade Millennium Court. I am disappointed in you. So Altea's Prince of Light is just a lowlife.
Marth: Hardin! Your are being controlled by the Darksphere, and have lost your just heart!! Please, you must return to normal!
Hardin: Hahaha...! You are so naive, Marth. I attacked Altea solely because of my hatred of you. In the previous war, it was only because you were the descendant of Anri that Nyna gave the Emblem to you, and chose you to become the leader of the alliance. Prince of Light... What nonsense! If you hadn't received my support you would have died long ago, so don't act all big, Marth!! From that day on, I hated you. I kept silent for Nyna, but I knew I would have to deal with you eventually. This has nothing to do with the orb!
Marth: Hardin... Is that true... Your hatred of me... I didn't know...
Hardin: Ha... That's why you're just a boy. Marth! Come to me, so I can use my Gradivus to pierce your heart!! In this tiny continent, I am the only hero that is needed!

Fighting Hardin

Hardin: Rebels... Did you come here to get yourselves killed? I'll show you to fear my Gradivus!!

Killing Hardin

Hardin: Marth... Your highness... I have finally awakened... From my deep dream... Your highness... I am deeply sorry... I fought with my inner demon. However I was too weak... I resisted with all my might... But I still lost... I hoped for your highness' hand to end my life... That way I could be saved... Your highness... Nyna... Please take care of Nyna... She... I hope you... can tell her... In the... end... I still... loved her... I hope... She can... forgive me...

If every orb was obtained

(The Lightsphere, Starsphere, Geosphere, Lifesphere, and Darksphere attach to the Fire Emblem)
Binding Shield restored!


If the Binding Shield was restored

(Four Bishops approach)
Jagen: Marth, it's finally over. Now, the world is safe. Look, the princesses are over there...
Marth: Sister! And there's Princess Nyna... And Lena and Maria was well.
Nyna: Marth, you finally came. I am so happy...
(The Binding Shield glows)
Nyna: Gwaa!! Damn, you're carrying the Binding Shield... Urgh... My illusion has been shattered! Come, Dark Priests. It has come to this... We must resurrect the Shadow Dragon immediately!
(The Bishops become Dark Mages, who walk south and warp)
Jagen: Huh, wasn't that Gharnef? He and his men pretended to be the princesses.
Marth: Mmm, but what are they planning? They said something about resurrecting the Shadow Dragon... So my sister was indeed taken by Gharnef...
Jagen: Your highness, I apologize for interrupting you, but Gotoh has come.
Marth: Huh, Gotoh!? Please call him here!!
(Gotoh appears)
Gotoh: Marth, you have done well. You have all five orbs in your possession. Because of your efforts the lost Binding Shield has finally been restored.
Marth: Yes! The five orbs have attached onto the royal shield... So this is the Binding Shield? But, Gotoh, what should I do next? After seeing Gharnef's expression, it seems he really has taken my sister and the others. I can't just leave them.
Gotoh: Mmm... I understand your feelings... But you must first restore the seal on the Earth Dragons. Those beasts will soon awaken from their slumber. When they appear from the ground they will burn everything, and create Hell on Earth. Go, Marth. Send the awakened Earth Dragons back into the darkness of the seal!!
(Gotoh warps away)

If the Binding Shield was not restored

(Four Bishops approach)
Jagen: Marth, it's finally over. Now, the world is safe. Look, the princesses are over there...
Marth: Sister! And there's Princess Nyna... And Lena and Maria as well. It's great to see that everybody is safe.
Nyna: Marth, you finally came. I am so happy... I will need your help to restore Archanea.
Elice: You really worked hard, Marth. You are my pride.
Lena: Lord Marth, with our combined strength we have already vanquished Gharnef. Please relax.
Maria: The world is safe now. Your highness, please hurry back to Altea.
Marth: Really? It's good to see everybody well. But you all don't look too good...
Nyna: Everybody is tired from battling Gharnef. But it doesn't matter now, so please don't worry.
Marth: Really...? Nyna, I am sorry about Hardin. I couldn't save him.
Nyna: It's fine. He was devoured by his own ambitions, so it is not unexpected that he was lost. Well, Marth, you should hurry back to your homeland. Everybody is probably worried about you. With your remaining time, you must live well. As long as there are still people in this world, your name will never be forgotten.
