First game

Fire Emblem Gaiden

Death (Japanese: デス Death) is a black magic spell appearing in Fire Emblem Gaiden and its remake, Echoes: Shadows of Valentia. Death is a powerful mid-range spell without special effects; in Gaiden and vanilla Shadows of Valentia, Death is wielded exclusively by enemy units with the exception of Shade, who is only availabe via DLC. It returns in Three Houses as a dark magic spell known as Death Γ (Japanese: デスΓ Death Γ); in this game, it is weaker in terms of raw might, but has a high critical rate.

Its incarnation as a blue tome weapon skill in Heroes is a personal weapon of the corrupted variation of Delthea; boost its user's defense, and further boosts all of their stats during combat but deals recoil damage to them afterward.
